Title: Half-Life 2 (Linux Native Steam)
Operating System: Gentoo Linux AMD64
Recording Software: ffmpeg's x11grab

This is Half-Life 2 running natively under Steam.

Common questions answered:

- The system monitor on the right side is GKrellM. It is available in the repositories of most distribution's package management systems. Another popular system monitor (which people often mistakenly think is what I am using) is Conky, also available in the package management repos of most distros.

- To record my videos I use different scripts at different times based on a number of factors. For this particular video I used this command: ffmpeg -threads auto -v verbose -f x11grab -y -r 25 -s 1920x1080 -i :0.0 -f alsa -i default -q:v 1 -q:a 1 /tmp/output.avi

- While the video was recorded at 25FPS the game ran at a steady 60FPS as I recorded with vsync enabled. Without vsync the game easily runs at over 200FPS but the video does not look as good. All of the game settings are set to the maximum option presented within the settings menus. See the system specs at the end of this description.
