I like to record longplays for my youtube channel. Among them are my all time favorite games as a kid. Naturally, the older games are such a pain to record, due to newer versions of windows, direct x, resolutions... etc.
My issue currently is I am going to record a game called "Sacrifice", a game from Interplay that was released in 2000 I believe. I managed to get the game running, and recording the gameplay is very nice quality. However, when it changes over to a cutscene, both my monitors flash black, flicker, and go into the cut scene while I'm in game. On bandicam, however, the program automatically stops the recording and resumes it when the cutscene starts and stops. When I go back to look at the recordings, instead of one long recording, I have multiple for every cutsene plus the gameplay. The cutsene recordings are just black screens with sound.
Here is what I did to get the game to run and record as I described it. I'm using windows 10 by the way.
I have the most recent version of Bandicam.
In the compatibility tab I have "Disable fullscreen optimizations" checked.
I followed these instructions in the video game's discord:
"These are the fixes:

Download the Nvidia Inspector from here along with instructions. It is an older version that still supports the "PRE_D3D9_COMPATIBILITY_BITS"
1) Open Nvidia Inspector and under the driver version select profile settings (located in the middle of the program).
2) Then have the "_GLOBAL_DRIVER_PROFILE (Base Profile)" selected or you can make another one specialized for Sacrifice (located at the top of the window you opened). Then click "add application current profile" and add the original sacrifice.exe.
3) Click "Scan Nvidia Predefined Profiles..." (located to the upper right hand side of the window)
Please Note: If you can't do this then you must first click "Create a desktop shortcut to run profile settings" (located to the upper right hand side of the window) and run the newly created shortcut then scan "Scan Nvidia Predefined Profiles..."
4) After you finish scanning, scroll down to the Unknown Section and look for the Setting ID "PRE_D3D9_COMPATIBILITY_BITS" and set the Value to "0x00000040 (King's Bounty, X2: Wolverine's Revenge, Independence War 2 - Edge of Chaos, Falcon 4.0 Allied Force, MS Flight Simulator X, Links 2003, Gothic 2, Gothic 1)"
5) Hit apply settings (located to the upper right hand side of the window) and run Sacrifice.
6) Pair this fix with the sacrifice wide screen fix for the higher resolutions. https://mega.nz/#!9zQR0a4Z!NMB9O8JWtNRP ... ekDrC-hdb0"
The bandicam settings are on "Game Recording Mode", because when I try Screen Recording Mode, it locks the game up. My video settings are: "H264 - NVENC (VBR) (Auto), Full Size, 60fps, 100q.
After doing all this, the gameplay is exquisite and fluid. But, as I said, I can't get the cutscenes. As we all know, they are vital to the gameplay experience and to my longplay recordings.
Can anyone help me out with this?
