That's very complicated but there's no easier way to do it right now. With faster hardware, I have successfully recorded SD live game play (video and sound together) using ffmpeg, but SD does not make it easy. Sound capture is complicated because SD closes and reopens the sound device when the race starts, so you cannot just start capturing when the game starts. The solution was an ugly wrapper script hack which detects race start in the log output. Ugh! Full screen video capture steals about 20 frames per second, which reduced SD to barely playable frame rates. Playing in a smaller window helps but then driving is more difficult. Since my goal was to show human vs AI races, I gave up at this point.

That method doesn't work well when one is recording live game play. I found that it was impossible to start capturing the video at the instant the sound output begins to ensure they are synchronized. For live game play, it is much better to capture video and sound together. Anyway, it was the frame rate loss that stopped the project, not the recording process.

Good morning! Came across this photograph from long ago - a moment where dreams, reality and promise met in person.

Anyone here remember ReBoot
it wasn't the best animation, but back then CGI was still kind of new and blocky.
