I have no idea what you guess - but if you are worried about copyright . . .


If you are recording your gameplay so as to improve your play in certain situations then I cannot imagine that anybody could object, it would be little different from using 'Help'.


If you are using it to get 'bragging rights' on a forum devoted to the game, again, I can see little problem as most such sites have at least the implied approval of the game creators.


If you are using it for any form of commercial gain then you are almost certainly open to claims of copyright breach and the best thing would be to seek the approval of the game creators. They may see it as good advertising and say 'Go ahead', they may not !

I am going to be away until about the 22nd October. Time on-line will be reduced and my internet access may be limited. PMs may not be replied to as quickly as normal !
