Well, I was also very happy with the "instant replay" function of fs9.
But since I am using fsx, I have never again tried fs9. And I have never used the "instant replay" function in fsx, because I found another option to get brilliant screenshots.
I don't know the Kittyhawk 737. Is it freeware, like posky? I can only explain products which I am currently using. So this is a short excerpt from my payware list:
MS fsx Professional Edition + MS fsx Acceleration, which I bought in just 1 box as "MS fsx Gold Edition"
PMDG 747-400 fsx boxed
CLS 747-200/-200F/-300 fsx (& fs9 for those who need it)
... .. . . .......
So, my option for brilliant screenshots is, besides my payware, you should use fraps, which I installed as a demo version (2.9.8_). But recently I saw a problem with the 2.9.8 demo version (32 bit) of fraps, it destroyed my CLS 747-200 INS VC. And this did not happen with the CLS 747-200 FMC VC. But I am working on that problem, the next step after deleting fraps 2.9.8 from my system is, to try another fraps demo version, which is officially designed for a 64bit o/s. I believe the current fraps demo version is something like 3.xxx ...
One of my flights in the year 2012:
PMDG 747-400 fsx in UA "grey rainbow" colours (yes, I know, some good fellow jp member told me days ago, that this UA design has an official name, but I don't remember that, sorry)
dep: KORD (fsx default)
arr: KLAS (fsx default)
I've used the UA-B744 fmc to achieve a landing in Nevada, that basically was done by my 747... So, I had one hand free to press the "fraps key" once or twice.
Edit: Some of my frame rates (with a fast i5 processor with four cores + amd radeon HD (high definition) video card with 2048 Megabytes of vRAM (installed on the vcard and this is only used for video purposes), and the video card is not older than 2 years:
CLS 747-200 INS @ SBGL (fsx default airport, measured at the gate) = 25-30 fps
And I still didn't dare to try fsx "instant replay". Because fsx is a monster that eats up cpus and video cards. May I ask you, what cpu and video card are you using for fsx?
