    Before you start there, drop your bitrate to something reasonable say 12,000-14,000, your bitrate is at overkill right now.
    Keep your final FPS reasonable, say around 30 FPS, yes watchers will see the difference versus someone with a 60 FPS rig, but until you have a full gaming rig i doubt you could really do much better.
    Don't try to play high quality games, stick to lower graphic games, this will improve quality alot. think Portal 2 or CSGO, BF4 and such.
     
    Here is my settings, mind you its been a while and with my rig i probably can do better.
    Output: Advanced
    Type Custom
    Output type: To File
    Bitrate 18,000
    Audio Bitrate: 192
     
    FPS: 30 (locked)
     
    So here's how OBS works, while you're recording, it is acting like a second monitor, so your cpu is doing double the workload as its doing the screen your seeing and the "digital" screen thats being saved as .mp4
     
    The drawback is that your CPU or GPU (or both) is doing double what it normally does, so if you can get 60 fps out of Star Citizen, your lucky to have 30 FPS recording. But the software doesnt slow its self down to 30 FPS, it just keeps asking for more than what your PC can give.
     
    By forcing the recording down to 30 FPS, you get back your performance, at least a little bit. 
     
    DISCLAIMER:
    Its been awhile, some of what i have said is just theory, and better updates and improvements to OBS may fix some of the issues you have.
     
    Also, get a real SSD man!

    I'll respond fully but from what I understand most times your pc needs to have double the CPU and gpu processing power in order to record.

    QA loves it when new features come online so they can tell the developers that their babies are ugly and make them cryxD so true

    The question is did you find the spoiler from the last newsletter?

    I think it's just a slow week, it's mostly bug fixes now.

    'nuff said
  9. The_Director added a post in a topic Speculative ships?   

    This isnt the most up to date ( i think)
     

     
    But, right now your correct the only ship that we have no real peek at is the Origin 600 series ship. (be it series or just an ship)
     
    Also recently there has been a big push for ground vehicles vs spaceships, this is due to rounding out the FPS aspects of the game, so its likely to see many more ground types than new ships.
    Also, many of the new ships arriving have been made flight ready before the sale starts, suggesting that there are more ships just waiting for the month to reveal.
     
    A list of ships not in production (yet)
    Merchantman
    Anvil Carrack
    Hull series (A, B, D, E) C variant is in production.
    Endeavor
    Polaris

     
  10. The_Director added a post in a topic Impact of the delays etc..   

    It really depends on the person is what I find, often times if the person is informed of how the game is being made they are totally cool, but if they have a history of trusting games that never make it out of beta then more often than not they distrust SC devs.
     
    ofc SC has faced setbacks but most games need a development time of 5 years, and while we are now past that, the scale of the game really needs 7 years imo.

    Ground units ship tokens
    Hey everyone,
     
    just to let everyone know space ships and ground vehicles are considered two separate types when it comes to ship upgrades.
     
    this means if you have say a cyclone you cannot trade it for say an Avenger or vise versa.
     
    You can of course upgrade a 300i to an Avenger, or a cyclone to another ground vehicle.
     
    i e contacted RSI support about it and its just how they are treating it.

    I use OBS myself, and photoshop or Blender for photos.
  14. The_Director added a post in a topic [Unofficial] Star Citizen Alpha 3.0 Trailer   

    It was made by PC Gamer, its just them placing a lot of footage together. So i doubt its a real SC production. (has SC ever done a trailer for a major update?)
  15. The_Director added a post in a topic Tumbrel Cyclone is out!   

    Same here, maybe its because i bought the day early ship sale? (which i saved $10 on which makes me very happy)

    I bet the created of that list knew it would be on ATV and decided to troll us
     
  18. The_Director added a post in a topic Tumbrel Cyclone is out!   

    again you can trade to store credit, also I think they have it blocked off till when the real sale starts...
    The Tumbril Cyclone pre-sale will run through July 20. Pre-sale Cyclones include a limited edition Tumbril Stock forum badge and limited skin which will not be available with the standard model. Credit models (including the four role-specific variants) and additional multi-ship packs will be available in the full sale, as will a brochure, holoviewer model and additional concept material. CCUs from the base Cyclone to the variants will also be available tomorrow.

    You can still melt the car to store credit and use it for a ship, but you will lose your LTI

  21. The_Director added a post in a topic Tumbrel Cyclone is out!
