Recording Issues

I was just wondering if anyone else is trying to record this game for YouTube purposes. I use Action! and I cannot seem to get it to record. Whenever I hit the record button, it slows the whole game to like 5 FPS and stuff. If anyone can help me out, that would be awesome. Thanks!

Hi mate,

Sorry to hear that the game isn't responding well to being recorded!

I've installed Action! on my machine and the game runs at 60fps. What are the specifications of your PC? I assume that other games you have recorded run fine?

Also, if you haven't already, could you give the SDL2 version of the game a try? You can download it from the itch.io website (My Purchases > Loot Rascals > Download > lootrascals-windows-sdl2test.zip). Give it a go and let me know if that makes a difference :)

Cheers,

Max

I just got a new PC, and so I'm still kind of getting used to it. I shall give it a go with the SDL2 and see if that makes any difference.


Update: Alright so it looks like the SDL2 actually works like a dream. So, I'm not sure what is causing the slow-down with the other version, but thanks for pointing it out and I now should not have an issue, at least for the moment.

That's great news! We'll be rolling out an update soon that will mean all users will be using the SDL2 version. It's good to know that it improves things :)
