With the introduction of Noscam in our latest update, we’re giving you some exciting new tools to help you create Nosgoth clips like never before. Noscam is a built in game recorder with custom camera controls. Previously, any recordings you may have done in Nosgoth would have been purely with the third-person perspective you see while playing. With the introduction of Noscam, you now have a host of other options available to you that will allow you to create custom videos and screenshots, using your saved replays.
That epic triple kill you got in the last match by Charging into a group of humans, huddled foolishly in a corner? Load up the replay and pan right in on the action, and grab that footage for an epic kill clip. Managed to Bola a friend’s Sentinel out of the air? Line your camera up and take a screenshot, to create a snazzy new wallpaper.
Each match you play in Nosgoth is automatically saved as a small replay file (a demo). To play back a previous match, just load up Nosgoth. Click on Play, and then on Noscam.
Within this menu you’ll see a list of your recent games that you can choose to play or archive (save). The recorder will automatically save your last 5 matches, so make sure you archive ones you’d like to keep! Each replay is noted with the map name, date, and time, so you can easily find the match you’re looking for. View that match replay by clicking on Watch.
IMPORTANT: Currently, Noscam replays will become invalid when new patches are released. Make sure you capture any footage from favorite replays before the next patch!
The replay file will open up, as seen below.
You can switch between two camera types: Free Cam and Locked Cam. Hit SPACE to switch between these two camera modes. With Locked Cam, the camera will follow you as you played the match. With Free Cam, you’ll be able to pan around the map, creating custom angles and shots. You can move the camera around the map with the standard control options (WASD).
You can also Right-Click to bring up your Noscam controller, allowing you to pause, speed up, slow down, or select a specific time in the match, skipping ahead or back to a particular moment you want to see.
To remove the HUD (display), hit the H key. Now you can watch the match play out, or pan around the map, with no HUD or tooltips displayed.
Within the Nosgoth settings menu you’ll find other controls listed, that you’ll be able to remap as you might with any other controls in the game.
To be able to record footage, you can use your usual recording tools such as FRAPS, other software, or a capture device, to record the footage you’re playing back.
To easily capture a screenshot, you can use a tool like FRAPS, or Steam’s built-in screenshot function (usually bound to F12). Any screenshots taken with Steam will pop up automatically after you close the game, but can be accessed any time by right-clicking on Nosgoth in Steam, and selecting View Screenshots.
We can’t wait to see what sort of clips you guys put together with these new tools, so make sure you share them with us! Whether this is a montage, random moment, an epic kill, or a screenshot you just can’t wait to show off, we want to see ‘em!
