Fraps is a universal Windows application that can be used with games using DirectX or OpenGL technology.

  • Shows Frames Per Second (FPS)
  • Screen Shot using any key and saves itself
  • Can record videos while playing games

Version 3.2.2


Take me down to the paradise city where the grass is green and the girls are pretty.

When recording it will take the frame rate down, but it won't make a lot of difference just showing you your current FPS.
