I was planning on buying a license for Fraps, but then I noticed that the last update is from February 2013, which makes me a bit uncertain. Does anybody know about the status and future of the project?

Not that I think the program is in dire need of any improvements or bugfixes. But almost two years without an update is a long time, especially for a program that used to be updated quite regularly (usually at least once a month, and never a gap longer than 6). Also, the last version number "3.5.99" looks like it was supposed to be the last release before a bigger update.

As the price is relatively high, I would hesitate a bit to register a software when maybe I'll soon no longer be able to get any support.


I know I'm replying to a post that's several months old, but I would avoid this software. You are correct the last version is 3.5.99, released Feb. 2013. I have read many reviews that support does not exist anymore, in the fact that they don't reply to inquiries to the web-form submissions on their web site, as that is the only way to contact them.

I think this might have been a sole-developer project and it either was abandoned or the developer vanished.

Open Source?

Is there an alternative to Fraps Open Source? Only need to measure the FPS.
Please help.


Speaking of this. MSI Afterburner should be listed as alternative as fps measure is one of main Fraps functionality. MSI Afterburner is often used for that as well.

Have you ever tried Acethinker Screen Recorder Online? A free web-based app that can record screen right from your web browser, it's a good alternative to Fraps.

Very useful but has two problems as far as I am concerned. First, it splits files at 4 GB even on NTFS. Second, I wouldn't mind some compression options for those of us that would like to sacrifice a little CPU to decrease file sizes. Perhaps compression is a pipe dream even on a modern quad-core ... I don't know.
