[SOLVED] OpenMW crashes when recording using OBS game capture

Post by kuyondo » 17 Jul 2018, 08:03

Im recording using OBS game capture, but OpenMW crashes everytime I start recording. There is no other way to record using OBS, even OBS windows capture do not work ( does not show the game exe in the dropdown ) .
I remember being able to record OpenMW back in version 0.41. Something has changed?

Are there any alternatives that we can use to record the game?

On Linux, I use Kazam and it works.

What is your platform?

Something definitely has changed, I have downloaded and installed version 0.41 and tried using OBS, and there is no crash. Oh boy, it worked nicely.
What had cause newer OpenMW version to stopped working with OBS? Should I report this as a bug? I believe it should because it was not present in previous version.
Or can anybody propose a workaround?

Can you test 0.42, 0.43 and 0.44 to help pin point in what release (time slice) to look?

Tested. Only version 0.44 has the problem. Previous versions don't. I'm using the latest nightly btw.

It's OBS's buggy GL hooks. But any change in OpenMW's behavior here would be because of an updated dependency.

Is a fix possible on OpenMW side?
