    You dont have to be admin

    In console

    record demoname

    you can only record what is on your screen, and when playing back demos (Shift + F2) you cant go in free look mode...

    Record "demoname" in console, then you can run the demo by going playdemo "demoname" and record it using fraps or something.

    Oh ok so the console onli makes a temp file for you to watch back if i want to but i will need a seperate program to record it to my hard drive for editing. so is it pointless to record the demo using the console in the first place? i may as well just record using fraps, or does using the console to record a demo offer more camera views like being on spectate

    Recording a demo makes it less laggier when you record with fraps or whatever.
