I have used Hypercam 2 to record my screen before, but I am unable to record and take screenshots of any sort of game. It just goes right through and shows the desktop or whatever window was open when I started the game or a black screen when it should be showing what is happening in the game.
I would prefer a free software, or at least a software that lets me record for 5-10 minutes without a huge watermark (Bandicam is my last resort). So far I haven't tried other software because since even the built-in screenshot function of Windows 8 doesn't work, I think the issue is not with Hypercam.
How can I solve this problem and what software should I use? I am using Windows 8. Most online solutions say to disable desktop composition, which I can't find in Windows 8.
