How to record games in Mame with FBX

Go to the Capture section of the Settings tab and select Fullscreen. You will see FBX’s overlay appear.

Launch MAME and start running the ROM that you want to record.

When you are ready to begin recording, press the Start / Stop Recording hotkey. By default, this will be Ctrl + F12.

The overlay will disappear. You are now recording!

When you want to stop recording, either press the Start / Stop Recording hotkey or click the Stop Recording button that appears in the FBX window to save your video.

The overlay will reappear to indicate that you have stopped recording and your video has been saved.

Your saved video will appear in the Recordings tab. Select it from the recordings list on the left to watch it back.

 TIP  Since FBX is not capturing directly from either MAME or the game, FBX does not know the name of the game so it will simply be labelled as “Fullscreen Recording”.
