Yes, I switched all other settings to the lower ones (mono, 8bit, 22KHz) but it didn't help. Strange thing is: This issue started in 2012 (before that everything was fine) and I have no idea what was changing (as I still have the same PC setup).
Anyway not a big thing, I can live with that :)
I had problems with an old pc. I had to change the settings of the hdd.
I think from PIO mode to DMA mode.

I have the same problem as Prodatron and it appeared with the latest alpha version as well. Don't know any solution yet...

Hmm. I get that too. Will look into it.

I wanted to get a release out back at Christmas, but much has been going on since then and I got busy with other stuff. btw, I've fixed the clicking which was caused by corruption of one of the channels (using EBX as a pointer when BH had sound channel data, in Z80 terms that's like using HL when H has the value you need to write!)

We noticed this clicking sound when recording the video for the CPC Retro Dev Compo, and I actually remembered something about you saying you'd fixed it.
But looking at the download page at WinAPE.net we already had the latest version.

Is there no version of WinAPE available yet with this fix?

Couldn't you just delete the sound track in some movie editing program?

Well sure.
But since I spent a long time making the music and sound effects I'd prefer including them.

I've had the same trouble if I've recorded something from Winape, but have noticed that videos are being produced without the clicking sound, so perhaps another Emulator might do the trick?

I prefer an emulator that has video-recording built in, rather than using an external screen recorder, in order to not lose any frames.

I don't mind that the emulator itself slows down during this recording, as long as all frames are captured.

Do you know of any emulator that offers this?

EDIT: Otherwise I actually prefer using the real device(s), which is also why I'm looking into getting myself an external recorder of some kind. But I still feel I know too little about the topic.

CPCE 1.94 allows you to save AVI Video. Going into that option, it'll ask what Codec to use, or Uncompressed if preferred.


You may have CPCE 1.94 without realising it, I ended up with it after I downloaded CPC BASIC 3. In my case I found it in the UTILS/CPCE folder. In CPCE I noticed you can record the Video with or without sound.

Ok, I'll check it out. I have a lot of videos I need to record for my project "8bit Stories". But I'm very picky about the quality.

MAME will also record AVI video, but only uncompressed (so you will need a large amount of free disk space).
The -snapsize switch will allow you to set the resolution you want, and the output will be stretched or shrunk to fit (by default it will be at 1:1, which is likely undesirable).
