Can you provide some more details please?
* What screen recorder have you used?
* What chromium options apart of the default ones?
* Have you launched the screen redorder first or the app?

Thanks

* What screen recorder have you used?

OBS 1.15
* What chromium options apart of the default ones?

I used your capx not modified
* Have you launched the screen redorder first or the app?

Tried both

OBS setting:
base resolution (canvas) 1920x1080
output resolution 1920x1080
fps : 48
windows capture by exe name

Ah, yes with OBS it works we know that as OBS gives you possibility to precisely select the source.

Still could you tell if you use any non default chromium options. By chromium options I mean the chromium-args section in package-win.json file. Do you use any other than those:
Code: Select all
"chromium-args": "--disable-plugins --disable-internal-flash --disable-popup-blocking --enable-gamepad --enable-html5-camera --allow-file-access-from-files --disable-software-rasterizer --ignore-gpu-blacklist"


Thanks

same than yours

Additionnal note: I don't test on steam game but I guess it works because I found gameplay video of game created with C2 on youtube or community hub (nw.j 14/17/18)

Alright, thank you for testing.

Yes it is possible. No one said it is not possible. It is possible if you use OBS and set it up correctly, it is also possible with some other recorders if you launch app and recorder in proper sequence (well that works sometimes, kinda randomly).

Let me paste part of my conversations with few youtubers who managed to record my game gameplay.

== Youtuber 1
He was not able to record the gameplay, still he didn't give up and ended up using a trick and record a video.

== Youtuber 2
This youtuber gave negative review on Steam after playing 0.1h (so 6 minutes).
Part of his review was
Image
it's in Russian, but when you put it to Google Translator it's understandable. He says that the game is bugged and impossible to record.
Image
I doubt he played those 6minutes. I believe he was trying to record the game and got simply frustrated so just left a negative review.

== Youtuber/Streamer 3
This one contacted me telling he has recording problems. I asked him to try to launch the app first and then the recording software.
Image

I have more complaints on my emails somewhere. Those were just easy to find. I don't want to spend too much time searching for all of them now, but I think it's clear even with those few examples. After all I had several letsplay videos from few youtubers out of 69 youtubers who were willing to record the game. Those small unknown YT guys will spend some time to find out the way. But any bigger youtuber will obviously not bother at all as he has a long list of games in his queue.

So after all it is possible to record the gameplay, but not that easy with most of the recording software.
I hope that clears things out.

Really? Out of the whole post this one paragraph interested you the most? The important part on this screen is "that does solve my recording issues".

BTW: He was refering to being on the Twitch apps list (or not). You cannot stream a game which is not on that list so he was just encouraging to add the game to the list.

This whole thing is pretty worrisome- I'm glad there are people pushing this matter. I know that I have had issues with capturing video of my games in the past.

Sure. Twitch is the new Youtube.
Or as TheRealDannyyy might say "welcome to the 20's"

Actually it's way better to stream something you have control over than trying to get something that wasn't meant to be recorded changed.
And like I said it can be a selling point.
Think about it, handing out the game for free to people who are only interested in their bottom line is a terrible business plan.
Always bypass the middleman when you can.

Edit:
Also @Ashley Twitch streaming?
Can we do that?
