Who should read this guide?

This guide should serve as a quick pointer for first time Dolphin user.

A couple of things you should know about Dolphin:

Bandicam - A competitive game video capture software

Many have complaint that the crack for the latest version of Bandicam (v1.7.5 onwards) didn't work as expected. Or if it had somehow worked but the watermark is still present in the recorded video even after applying the crack. So I had decided to upload the one that I had used and really does work.

Although the version that I uploaded is from the older version (v1.7.1.133), but I couldn't see any major changes when compared to the latest version. At least the video doesn't have the watermark on it after crack.
