OBS (Open Broadcaster Software) "Game capture" function does't work with 0.60

31 posts in this topic

OBS Classic (Open Broadcaster Software) "Game capture" function doesn't work with 0.60.

Drivers, updates and other info is irrelevant – if one reverts back to 0.59, everything works again.

A lot of evidences from different streamers across Twitch, Twitter etc. For example, from here: 

 

Please, fix it, because Game capture method is recommended for streaming and it was the more convenient way to stream DayZ.

P.S. I know about windowed mode (window capture) and monitor capture. Game capture is still better.

UPDATE: There is a workaround for this problem: disable Anti-aliasing in the game to get game capture feature working again. Big thanks and respect to Le_yakitoid, who told us about it. :)

Yes, using game capture. Also try setting the game capture to hook to the game using a hotkey. If nothing works, then the problem on your end is something else, just mess around with your configs.

Really strange, I will look into that later today. As far as I know, most streamers and youtubers I know use monitor capture instead of game capture at the moment with 0.60. I'll report back. Thanks for the tips.

Thank you for the tip, but I want to use antialiasing and it actually worked in previous patches.

Well, you're... well, not quite right here, 'cause if we take DayZ 0.59 in out-of-box state, OBS game capture works, but if we take 0.60 in the same state – alas! So no need to mess around cfgs, it's just a DayZ problem, not user's.

Yes, that is true, but if it's a workaround to get me to record with OBS atm, I'll be happy and we can narrow the problem down right?

I meant Dayz Configs, sorry for misleading. But yeah, its probably a problem with AA in the new renderer. It will get fixed soon enough.

 

Also, quick note that I forgot to mention, I'm playing DayZ in windowed mode.

Note, I am speaking specifically of game capture, not monitor capture.

This still doesn't work in OBS Classic.  Dayz 60 will not work at all in OBS classic, at least not for me

This only works in OBS Studio and ONLY after disabling AA.

Works in my OBS Classic, just streamed with it.

This workaround seems highly unstable, I had to restart DayZ 2-3 times and to play around sources and in OBS before I got a picture.

If you have nvidia card, make sure that the geforce experience is running and turned on, that way you can even use AA in fullscreen mode. It works for me with OBS v0.657b.

Doesn't work for me. GeForce Experience is up and running every time I start the game for 6 months already (not in desktop capture mode, tho). OBS 0.656b.

Actually today I've seen a streamer who accidentally turned on AA setting during the stream, and the video feed stopped almost immediately. And that streamer has a very decent Nvidia card and GeForce Experience always running.

Sure if you mess with the AA while you stream, it will freeze the stream's picture (I made it also). But with Gef.Exp. and turned off AA, it goes well for me.

The bug is still here. I really hope it will be fixed before pushing the patch to stable, 'cause this issue (alongside with Shadowplay issue) makes DayZ-related content creation harder than ever.

SparkyBoy, I'm talking about "Game capture" option. Not "Monitor capture".

If you stream DayZ, you should know that "Monitor capture" option eats you FPS like crazy. It's very CPU-intensive.

That's why (and considering other reasons) "Game capture" option always has been the best choice for streaming DayZ and many other games.

      So I am getting back into streaming. Every game I wanna stream works great... but then 0.62 hit. Wow, nice patch, wanna stream this... oh wait OBS don't work with DayZ anymore. All I am getting is a black screen (I wanna use OBS only cause everything's setup on there for me). Everything else like overlays or any other game for that matter, they all work. But can't get DayZ to work.
      What I've done: 
      0. YES I checked "Compatibility mode/anti cheat thingy)
      1. Updated all video drivers and updated OBS.
      2. Verified DayZ Cache.
      3. Deleted old scenes in OBS and made new ones.
      4. Re-installed OBS.
      5. Tried window capture (It's all wonky on screen and won't fit it right).
      6. Tried monitor capture but only where there is text on the menu is lit up, the rest is all black. 
       
      KEEP in mind, I cannot run this game in window mode as I get half the frames I would get fullscreen (Max 30 in the wilderness and that's with no trees around me). So I won't do Window capture and monitor capture is just as bad for me with the addition that not everything lights up.
      Did anyone get DayZ working on OBS correctly and if so, how'd you do it?
      Thanks for the help guys :)

      Ok so I'm new-ish to day z and also to recording content. For some reason OBS is only picking up the audio and not the visuals. After looking through reddit forums it looks like the game is picking up OBS as a "cheating" software so it's being disabled. Does anyone know how to work around this for 0.62? I can only find fixes for old versions of OBS or for 0.60.
