Here is a small tutorial for videocapturing OpenArena:

1. Install OpenArena

2. start/join a game session if you just want to record (like a camera guy) type

\team s

and you will join spectator mode

3. use the console and type

\record filename

This will record the game session until you enter

4. stop the recordin


5. quit the session

6. start the recorded demo

\demo filename

7. before recording you will have to disable openal

\s_useOpenAL 0

8. now you will actually create the videofile

\video filename

this converts the demo-file into an MJPEG avi

9. you can find the file at C:\Documents and Settings\YourUsername\Application Data\OpenArena\baseoa\videos\filename.avi (Windows 2000/XP) or at C:\Users\YourUsername\AppData\Roaming\OpenArena\baseoa\videos (Windows Vista/7)

or ~\.openarena\baseoa\videos\filename.avi (Linux)
