The code monkeys at Beepa have been going bananas with updates to the company's Fraps real-time video capture and benchmarking utility, having rolled out four new versions of the popular app in the past month. Prior to this recent flurry of activity, it wasn't unusual for six months or more to pass without an update, the last of which was released on October 22, 2011 before kicking off a string of updates starting on April 26, 2012.
For the third time in less than a month, Beepa has released an update to its Fraps utility for real-time video capture and benchmarking. Beepa's been unusually active in updating its popular program, whereas prior to version 3.5.0, which was released on April 26, 2012, updates would typically roll out only every 6 months or so. Since then, Beepa has released builds 3.5.1 on May 18 and 3.5.2 earlier this week.
Whether your stayed up late and stood in line at your local Gamestop at midnight last night to pick up your pre-ordered copy of Battlefield 3 or plan to grab it on the way home from work today, there's a good chance your evening will be filled with some FPS fun. Will you also be recording your in-game exploits? That's certainly an option with FRAPS.
We're a few days late on this one, but if you like to record your awesome in-game moves for all the world to see, or test out how your hardware upgrades fare in real-world testing, there's a new version of Fraps available -- version 3.4.6 -- that adds a handful of feature updates and bug fixes, one of which you already gleaned from the title. Hit the jump to see what else is new.
You don't hear an awful lot about Fraps anymore, the universal Windows app used primarily for benchmarking but is also capable at capturing in-game screenshots and taking realtime video of your epic frags. Maybe that's because many of today's games come with their own built-in benchmarks. Whatever the reason, Fraps doesn't appear to be going anywhere anytime soon and has been on somewhat of an aggressive update schedule the past several months. The latest update -- version 3.4.2 -- adds a handful of fixes and optimizations.
