Could anyone tell me the best way to distribute this mod? Installer? PAK File?

1: What is the best way to take a video while playing in the editor?
2: Should I release a beta? I'm asking because earlier in particle work before I decided to actually make a mod I messed a lot with the materials. Seeing how the mod works without my modified materials would help a lot. I suppose I could get a pirated copy of Crysis 2 to experiment, but I'd rather let you guys try the mod and give input.
3: Which is prefered? Realism or Hollywood? Both?

And a mod just put your modfied / personal files in a separate folder, if you dont use a mod you will just have your files in the default gamecrysis2 folder.
As exemple, if in the sb3 you edit a C2 particle effect, and save it, that will not change the .pak itself, that's just create a folder libs/particle/modifiedparticle.xml.
So if you want to cancel your change, you just have to delete the folder or the created .xml.
You dont need to use another C2 version to make test, and if you really needed a special C2 to make test, why dont just make a copy of your actual C2 folder !?
3- its a personal opinion, but yes i prefer "realist" i mean not too excessive at least.

I will try hard to get some nice pictures up.
