Recording on or using OBS makes game run faster? Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

I've noticed that when I record or even have OBS (Open Broadcaster Software) running and hooking into Dark Seas, the game runs smoother.

Try gunning before and during the use of OBS. (I use OBS Studio for reference)

The pieces are faster I believe on gunning as well? This might give an advantage to certain players using a recording software like OBS maybe?

Now I'm not sure if it's something with my computer, but running OBS 'does' make puzzle pirates faster.

If it's something with me, would be nice to help me out and figure a way to make it run faster without using obs, otherwise it would also be nice to find out what OBS does to make Puzzle Pirates run faster!

I actually lag when using OBS, the game doesn't run as smooth. Tends to be more noticeable with high movement puzzles such as Gunning, Sailing and Patching.

Hmm. That's super interesting. It might just be me or something that slows down PP?

I'll make a wild guess to say that when OBS is running, some background tasks might be prevented from running. And without OBS running, these background tasks were somehow using more CPU time than expected.
