Cant use Game recording Mode?!

Thu Oct 19, 2017 10:10 pm

Hi,
i bought Bandicam, but i dont understand how to use "game recording mode"?
if i change to this mode, i cant click on the "rec" Button. The button stays black. If i click on the black button i get the following message (i hope i translate right) :
"The recording cant start in the game recording mode, because no target window is selected!"
How i can select a target window for recording??
- I can see the green FPS in the game.
- I use latest Bandicam Version and just reinstalled it.
- I use Win7 64 Proffessional
- I use Nvidia Geforce GTX 960 with latest nvidia driver.
- I use Xvid recording Format.

In the Screen recording Mode i can click the "rec" Button. Its red and the recording works fine.
Game Recording was the Reason i bought this programm, but now its not working?
You know why i cant use the game recording mode? How i can fix this?
Thanks a lot for your help!
Kind regards,
Jan

Hello Jan,

You might want to try using a hotkey to start the recording while the game is in focus (you're in the game).

Hello Janthefun,

Please follow the steps below and try recording again using Xvid and H264 (CPU).

1. Uninstall your current graphics card driver and install the latest graphics card driver.
2. Uninstall Bandicam and download the latest version of Bandicam from https://www.bandicam.com/downloads/.
3. Refer to the "If you can't see the red FPS number, or..." article on the linked page.

Thank you.

Hi! I have the same problem! "The recording cant start in the game recording mode, because no target window is selected!"
I use the program in non-admin mode, and if I use "record like another user" I can use only "record screen". How possible?

Hello,

The message appears when you have not selected the recording target of the Game Recording Mode.
You need to click the target window and confirm the green fps numbers in top-left corner.

Please refer to the following page and try recording again.

Thank you.

Hello, I have the same problem, with the same message that says "The recording cannot start in the game recording mode, because no target window is selected.". I selected the window, and I noticed that there's no FPS in the corner. I have the option to see the FPS on, but it's not showing up and it also won't let me record even if I tried. I am using a valid game to record on as well, Minecraft shouldn't be too hard to record.

Thanks
