Unable to record in Need For Speed: Most Wanted (2005)

Fri Jun 18, 2021 5:38 pm

I believe this has been brought up by multiple people.

Until Bandicam 4.5.0, it is able to record from NFS: Most Wanted 2005.
For some reason, after I updated the app, Bandicam is unable to record from the game. The game is getting hooked as the FPS meter appears in green. But attempting to record using the F12 hotkey doesn't have any effect.

This is very irritating as I need to record my gameplay and am not able to. I also need the recording improvements of the newer versions of Bandicam (5.0.0+).
Is there a way to fix this issue?

Laptop Specs:
Intel Core i3-7100U @ 2.4 GHz (2 cores, 4 logical processors)
4GBs of DDR4 RAM @ 2133 MHz
Intel HD Graphics 620 (DX12 capable)
No discrete/dedicated GPU
1TB HDD @ 5400 RPM
Windows 10 Home (21H1 Update)

Game info:
Name: Need For Speed: Most Wanted (2005)
Publisher: Electronic Arts
DirectX version: 9

Minimum requirements for game:
CPU: Pentium 4 or Athlon XP
CPU SPEED: 1.4 GHz
RAM: 256 MB
OS: Windows 2000/XP
Video card: 32 MB DirectX 9.0c compatible 3D video card
Disk space: 3 GB

I also want to bring this problem up. While using Bandicam 4.5.0, the recording performance is very bad.
FPS without recording: 65 to 80 FFS
FPS while recording: 25 to 35 FPS
This kind of performance is really pathetic.
Is there a way to fix this issue also?

Hello jonathanjimson,

We are afraid that we have no solutions other than using Bandicam 4.5.0 to record the game at this moment.

We are sorry that we couldn't give you the answer you wished for.

We would appreciate it if you would give us additional information below.

1. Do you play the game in Steam, Origin, or Windows Store?

2. Do you have the same issue when you check/uncheck the "Windows Apps (UWP)" option as shown below?

Thank you.

1. No, I don't use any client for this game. It is a DVD game and does not require any external clients.
2. I still have that issue when I check/uncheck the "Windows Apps (UWP)" option.

Yeah v4.5.0 seems seems to be the last one able to both record old games (like NFS, Ghost Recon Wildlands) and new games (eg Jedi Fallen Order, AC Valhalla etc).

Can't the devs just go back to the previous recording algorithm/engine/method to re-implement the newer features? Cuz v4.5.0 and prior is proof the prev method/engine works....
