    Hey talon, here is the link to d3doverrider

    Basically it will vsync and tripple buffer your games without the in game option set because this program does it using way less resources on your processor.




    Also get msi afterburner and then in your games options set the framerate to unlocked (vsync off etc.) and let this afterburner program handle framerate because it does it using way less resources on your processor as well.

    In the afterburner 'settings' > 'monitoring' options under 'Active hardware monitoring graphs' check the 'framerate' option to Set your max as like 59 and min to 29. That will give you steady 60fps if your system is up to it but will also keep it from dropping below 30. You can set max to 29 and min to 29 as well for steady 30fps.

    So Brook, that Laptop I mentioned has an AMD Radeon™ HD 7650M Graphics Card. Is it possible to swap the cards out in Laptops, if I take it to a a specialist store to do it, or can you only do that with PC's?

    Just thinking. I'm getting this Laptop on Tuesday. The specs you said were pretty decent, plus it's 64 bit, so if I could swap that graphics card out for maybe a better one, that would still be compatible with the machine, then maybe I would get a better PC gaming experience. Obviously not talking about the more high end graphics cards, just a better one that comes with the laptop. I heard it's decent, and can run a lot of the more older gen games, but of course not capable of running the likes of Battlefield 3.

    I simply do not have the room for a desktop, and I prefer Laptops anyway. So is that a viable solution, or not worth the time and effort if it's not a desktop?

    Yeah the problem with that Black Ops 2 in-game live stream feature is that the quality is sooooooo bad, but yet that appears to be standard across the board, and it doesn't look like there is anyway to increase the quality, no matter what your connection speeds are. It's definitely a missed opportunity because otherwise it would be amazing, and I guess this is a glimpse at what the PS4 is going to offer with that share button. I just hope the quality the PS4 pushes out is a lot better than what we get with Black Ops 2.

    Anyone else have a stream channel they want to include?

    What I'm working on is making it so that when you are live streaming the page will default to play whichever stream is live from the list.

    Also I will include your archived videos so people can watch them on the page if no stream is currently live. If you have a twitch channel you want to include post it here.

    That new HD PVR 2 can only record in 1080p on 360 according to the stat sheet on the Hauppauge site. Much easier using HDMI though. Looks stylish too imo =P lol



    As for what I use I got the standard Hauppauge HD PVR to record, and the Avermedia software that comes with it. Record audio commentary with Audacity and then put it all in Sony Vegas Movie Studio and edit it all. Managed to get Sony Vegas for like £35 from Amazon instead of the retail price of £70.

    "> So speaking of capture equipment. Hauppauge are coming out with a new HD PVR 2 dubbed the 'Gaming Edition'



    Unlike the original, this actually supports HDMI as well as component cables so it can record in upto 1080p which is great news. Not because many games actually support native 1080p but because the videos we can record using this thing will be actual HD. Also it will be handy for the next gen of consoles which might do away with component cables altogether.



    It looks like shit though.

    Ok. Yeah good choice. i just downloaded the trial version of vegas platinum studio to check it out. Its got good reviews and i never really liked adobe premiere that much. I used it for my killzone montage but it wasnt as easy to use as i would have liked. Im trying to think of something that might be fun to capture. Probly vanquish or battlefield 3

    What are you guys using to capture? I see maddragon has the pvr. What do you use with that to add audio etc?"> Yo just wanted to bump this thread with some new info. I have been messng with capture and doing research into making it all work better.



    I found that using media player classic (mpc-hc) allows me to replay huge hd files on my computer without stuttering. I would reccomend it.



    Also i found this program called "amarec tv" that is a capture program. Its optimised for multi core pcs and works much better than say virtualdub for capture. When using it the amount of processor needed to capture is less than half of what virtualdub uses.it also has a feature that allows you to record your mic audio right in with the capture which is something i have been looking for. You can set the mic and game sound levels. Its really nice and easy to use. Im using this with the cineform codec and its pretty great. It also has a super simple screenshot function.

    EVGA 01G-P3-1561-AR GeForce GTX 560 Ti FPB (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

    Newegg.com - EVGA 01G-P3-1561-AR GeForce GTX 560 Ti FPB (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

    Its $250 though.. sigh...

    "I threw this card in my build, and instantly could max out to 32xAA on Bad Company 2 MAX settings at 1080p without ANY stutter or drop... I even decided to run fraps for 45 mins straight. Fraps gave me a solid 75FPS with fraps recording at 60FPS... Flawless, just flawless...

    Not to mention I recently got invited to the Battlefield 3 Alpha.... I am playing the game with Max Graphics... I get a little stutter but not often enough to affect gameplay... (Had to also download BETA graphics card drivers!.. ouch!) Cons: The price is a little steep, I usually do not go the extra mile for a graphics/video card... I usually put my money into CPU... BUT, its not as expensive as comparable cards.


    This machine has only dropped below 70+ FPS on Battlefield 3 at full 1080p (1920x1080) with max settings. (It seems to run stable at about 45-60 FPS on Battlefield 3 in the Battlefield 3 Alpha test, whilst running Beta drivers.... Will most likely run better upon release.)"
    "> I want this one:

    Fixed my capture shit this morning. Finally had time to sit down and fuck with it. The audio had just started desynching and shit was pissing me off. I had no idea why but I finally think i have it fixed. Just need to record some shit to test more but all my tests today have been perfect.



    I also found a quad core cpu on the cheap so once that comes in next week ill be back recording again. :^:





    Should be much quicker to export shit witht eh quad core.
