the demos are .dem files which means you Cant use standard media players like quicktime etc, only UT99 dem recorder.

i have the latest Full version of Fraps which i can send you.( but the AVI file size recorded with Fraps is HUGE ) usually about 3 gig for a full recording of ut from start 2 finish. Fraps is only good if you want to rec, edit and create ut movies. If you only wana rec and watch ut99 demos use the below option.


Download ut99 demo recorder and install it.

Start ut and go 2 the mods section and you will see demorecorder there ( you must be in a game b4 you can rec ).

To watch the demo just press play in the section above.

all demos you record will be saved in the ut99/system folder and if you download a demo you must put it in the ut99/system folder.

if you cant find ut99 demo recorder on the net to download just pm me and i will e-mail you a copy of mine.

hope this helps. any problems just let me know.

Hey Max sounds like u need to install the ver of demo recorder in the link u provided, i read the install txt and it says-

-Fixes the annoying player name being reset bug. (note that for this to work, you must play demos from the manager itself)

(remember ur name after u demorec gravity & i)

fraps is the best prog and yes it will create a giant uncompressed video file..all you have to do is load it into virtual dub or any compression tool and convert it to divx..that should reduce the file size by a lot.. dont bother trying to frap the whole demo though..Im not sure but a 30 sec clip is probably a few hundred megs uncompressed..

speedpug ppl uploaded some vids if you want to see some examples.. http://speedpug.net/downloads/UTVids/

Just remember: demos look best when recorded on a server, if at all possible.

The UT network code does NOT send all player information to all clients. It's optimized so you get relevant info. Players far from view will not record properly.

Of course, if you're egocentric (and hey, who isn't?), you're recording yourself, so...who cares! :lol:
