Recording Hotline Miami (DXtory, Fraps etc.)
I've been using DXtory for most games when I want to record something and it works really well and of course a lot better than old Fraps.
So, I can usually record HM with 55~60fps during the first few levels, but as soon as I get to Chapter 04 "Decadence", the fps drop to around 43~45, making it basically unplayable while recording.
It doesn't matter how I set DXtory up, changing the amount of threads or using lossless codec (I usually record with x264)
I have not yet fully tested this in Fraps, so I can't say how that does it, but in general it's the worse program in every single aspect except for benchmarking.

Anybody else having this problem ?

My specs:
Win7 x64
Phenom II x4 955 (clocking it anything from 2,9Ghz to 3,6Ghz makes no difference in terms of performance)
GTX 460 768MB SuperClocked
DXtory v.2.0.119

As expected, Fraps runs far worse.

I had your same problem, plus i had most of the screen black when recording. I solved that by changing my screen resolution to 800x600 everytime i wanted to record Hotline Miami. Now i'll use this on mi youtube channel , try in a couple of days and you will se the results of the method.

Unfortunately, I am not at my main PC for another 4~5 weeks, so I can't check it.
However, I do feel that the beta update gave me a big boost (it also fixed the slow mask menu for me).
Thanks for the response anyway !
