insight autorecord how to set it work?? i have v.105

Here's 1.04 version of Insight + autorecord script by IL (the script works only with 1.04 version, but it makes the same replays as 1.05).
https://cloud.mail.ru/public/5DA5/4zkmHPbUR

You launch WC2 first, then Insight 1.04, then the Autorecord.

---------

I got back on my 4.3 version, because in 4.6 i have multiple problems with my 2 displays and a fullscreen WC2 mode.

MapEditor fixed (reinstallation helped).

The DJ scribble/scratch sound it makes when the game starts is not good. how do i turn it off
how do i fix that

Keep in mind, the idea of this sound is that you can hear when the game is about to start even if the game is minimized, so it's actually kinda useful (not just a random new sound :D)

But yeah, we could replace it with another sound if someone finds a good one

Yeah I thought about turning it off when the game isn't minimized but then no one would recognize the sound and they don't know it was the game starting sound (in case they are minimized)


Anyways, i attached another sound which is just the one from the game

Holy shit, you're a fucking genius. (OR I AM A MORON).

The main problem is that I can click on the second display when Im inside fullscreen WC2 4.6 and the game will minimize.
So this new ddraw doesn't block my cursor inside the game and let me click outside. The same problem was in 4.4, that's why I stayed on 4.3 (now I've remembered it).

With 4.3 it works very well, I can click only inside the game (1st display).

Anyway, It's not a big problem cuz not all WC2 players have 2 or more displays. And 4.3 was more than good for me.
I'll test some DDRAWs & combinations with 4.6 client.

On the battle.net chat it's normal, your cursor can move outside (this is intentional), but in game while playing this shouldn't happen. So in your case does it also happen in game?

I thoiught it was 25 years. I had such delusions of grandure had i stayed active and what a monster update and festival to take place....oh thats next year.....perhaps ill give my last major effort (i did ru the most populated and active member ladder for 1v1 through cases(more ladder issues need addressed on the server) perhaps a return to sexy looking myleague in the mean time in a few months) I have fantasic ideas for the game, some inspired by past content my friend made that would be like a voice pack they sell as micro transastions. you know who i am but i forgot all my main characters passwords. I will smurf a short time with a buddy of mine before i do the big reveal. I log on on random and guys are always sure im someone and they are always wrong lol.

Ok thanks, that actually helped...

I could reproduce the problem: What I needed was 2 monitors + run the game at fullscreen + use GDI renderer + alt+tab at the bnet chat window...
