    not really, if I remember correctly. It only stores the data that was recorded.
    I believe that you can run the .rpl file and record it as a video file, check
    racer.nl for the keys to press, I think it's F12, but not sure as I haven't made one in a
    long time.

    In my experience FRAPS is just worth buying if you can afford it. It makes Racer replays much easier to get great results from.

    Then again I think Ruud re-worked the replay system in a more recent release, if you have it.

    being 78 my memory isn't too good. Here is the info you need.

    Replays and making a video with Racer ver 0.090rc5:

    See: http://www.racer.nl/tutorial/replays.htm

    Run a race.
    At end of race press F2 key to run replay, left click on -> next to black square to start the replay
    At end of replay click red dot to save the replay.
    Go back to menu and select "view replay" and select the one you just saved.
    At end of replay select the far right icon (looks like film).
    enter fps, 24 is good. Select the location and name to save the file, ie lambo.avi
    Let the replay run twice to get video and sound.
    Look in racer folder for replay_TEMP.avi and replay_TEMP.wav files.
    Use Windows Movie Maker to make a video with sound.


    - Replay exporting development using DirectShow (instead the ancient VideoForWindows) to get better video files. May requires openglfilter.ax to be registered (run 'regsvr32 /s openglfilter.ax').
    See http://www.racer.nl/index.php?jump=tutorial/replays.htm
    - Replay export using DirectShow (replay.video.type=2) now requests a filename (intermediately generates replay_TEMP.avi and replay_TEMP.wav).
    - Replay format changed; now stores the driver names as well and can display those in replays (if show_names=1 in racer.ini).
    The replay format, V4.1, is incompatible with previous replay formats which won't run.

    I don't remember anything about khz, check with the racer.nl link.
    It may record slow but the fps will be ok.

    my section of racer.ini for ver 0.903 which may be adapted for ver 0655.
    good luck!

    I don't know anything about DirectShow other than it uses codecs and I have
    no knowledge of the codecs on your system but if you have the wmv 9 listed in
    the ini it might. You just have to try it and se.

    As with most of racer's features you have to try various things out.
