    Easiest way would be use an emulator and fraps/similar.

    As for actual ripping one or two games use bink/rad video for their videos and as such can be viewed with the appropriate tools:

    This is rare though (I am 99% TWEWY does not use them) and other than that nobody has made a decoder for any other type of video.

    You might get lucky and find another of the common game video types but they have no freely available decoder.

    I'm 99% sure that TWEWY doesn't have any FMV, the cutscenes with voice acting are just created with sprites and an audio track.

    The question does get asked every so often and there are three answers:
    One just emulate it. If you kill frameskip then you can speed up later on.

    Two: there is the "analog loop" option that some reviewers use.

    Three: you build something akin to this:

    I'm pretty sure you'll find them on YouTube, or Google them [​IMG]
