The new system does not actually record the game, so to speak. but it does record everything we do in the game. the system "writes down" everything we do, and replays precisely the same moves, which gives the illusion of recording. The game saves the record in a special file that can only be played in the game itself.
A. The system also records the difficulty level, the game mode and the playtime.
This will end the cheating in challenges, competitions and leagues.
B. As mentioned, the game is recording the moves and not actually 'filming', like in the ESCV program. and so the recording is not harming the games' speed and quality. In other words from now on it is possible to record any battle without worrying whether it will harm the performance.
In addition if you want to film a combo, you can record it in the new system and afterwards to film it with the usual filming application [ESCV - screen recording software].
C. The game saves the record as "LFR" [Little fighter record] which weights as a simple text file.
