Issue with Fraps and other game capturing software

Steps to reproduce

Open Fraps or Dxtory, open Don't Starve.

Fraps: Does not detect the game, so the overlay (yellow numbers) will not show up, making it impossible to record.

Dxtory: Detects it as a game, overlay shows up. But when you hit the record key you get a Microsoft Visual C++ error and crashes.

Describe your issue

As i've mentioned before in another post I made, I've been having trouble recording with Fraps. The yellow numbers (overlay) simply does not show up over Don't Starve, making it impossible to record.

I am aware you can change to windows mode and record that way, but when I'm done recording and try to change it back to fullscreen, the resolution says it's at 1680x1050 (my native resolution) but when I check the .ini file, it is some bizarre resolution that I have to manually change to get it back to the desired size, which is a pain.

Just recently I decided to try Dxtory. The overlay works fine, numbers show up, all is well, until I hit the record key. This message pops up:


After hitting OK, it auto closes the game.

What is going on? :s

Also cannot check version number on Steam, as my game does not load. It instantly opens the main menu.
