[How To] Fix recording lag in HL1 games

If your having weird a fps drop while recording footage in HL1 games like Counter Strike even though your computer hardware should be good enough, this will most likely will fix it.

Its pretty simple...
Just open the game, go to; Options -> Video and change the renderer to D3D, this will change the rendering method to DirectX.

This fixed the problem for me, I was using an ATI EAH 4850, I did some tests using an old nVidia 6700XL and it ran smoothly without any problems.
