Demos are recorded games which had been played before.
It is possible recording a game in Xonotic. Those recorded games are called Demos. Besides their intended purpose saving played matches, it is also been used as a proving instrument since Demos are saved as binaries and so hard to edit.
One of the differences between Nexuiz and Xonotic is Xonotic saves configurations into home / user directory. Logically every different Operating System handles those user specified configuration under a differnt path.

Capturing Demos into Video formatsEdit
For capturing a demo into a video format such as .ogv or .avi, Xonotic provides useful commands to let that happen. Here is an example how to capture very quick into the ogv format:
- Go into the Mutliplayer Window and access your demo by clicking the Demo tab.
- Double click your demo for a playback.
- During the playback go into command line by pressing ctr+^ and write cl_capturevideo 1 to start capturing. Dont worry, it is normal when playback is slowing down.
- To stop capturing, write cl_capturevideo 0 into command line. You are done.
As you can imagine the path of your captured video is likely similar compared with the demo path:
