Remember how your snipers would line up several enemies for one beautiful shot, your scouts storm a whole rival squad, your heavies unload on a roaring Juggernaut, but nobody saw your triumphs?

Time to write your name in history (of a file).

How to record from iPhone/iPad on Windows PC

You will need:

  • X-Mercs installed on iPad/iPhone
  • PC with Windows 7/8/10
  • Shared WiFi network

To record videos from your device you will "mirror" what is happening on your iPad/iPhone to your PC by using streaming software.

Download AirServer from the official website and install it. Choose "Try" after launching AirServer and get ready to stream some mercs.

1) After the activation step, AirServer will be minimized in notifications:

2) Click on its icon and look for "Settings". By default, AirServer is ready to receive video from your device with no additional configuration, though you can set your PC name by filling in "Computer name:"

4) In the menu choose your PC and turn on "Mirroring". AirServer will automatically begin receiving game video in a new window.

5) You're set and ready to film! Free software for recording videos is numerous on Windows. We recommend to look at Fraps and OBS.
