  3. When using MSI Afterburner / Rivatuner to view your CPU, GPU, Ram, FPS, etc during your stream, Riva may cause your obs studio to become blank for certain games. To fix, Open Rivatuner, Set your Application detection level to LOW and turn STEALTH MODE ON Next, Click on Setup and Enable Use Microsoft Detours API Hooking. That's it. You can now use OBS Studio and MSI Afterburner with Rivatuner and no more blank screen.
  4. EVGA Precision X is another great, free-to-use software for gamers who want to push their laptops or gaming PCs to the next level. EVGA Precision X lets you create up to 10 custom user profiles for overclocking your NVIDIA GPUs with ease. However, we want to quickly point out that, unlike MSI Afterburner, Precision X does not support AMD GPUs since EVGA doesn't manufacture AMD graphics cards. Download EVGA Precision X
  5. MD Ryzen Master is arguably one of the best CPU overclocking programs around. Consider this as AMD's answer to Intel's overclocking tool. Along with CPU overclocking, AMD Ryzen Master comes with pre-tuned settings to overclock your RAM and memory profiles to boost your DDR3 RAM performance. Download: AMD Ryzen Master (Free)
  6. This is Intel's overclocking tool for Windows PCs, mainly for use with its own CPUs. Intel XTU allows you to overclock your CPU, monitor the temperature, and stress test your computer, with a few other special features for Intel CPUs and Intel motherboards. Furthermore, Intel XTU also gives you CPU utilization and temperature readings, which you can use to monitor the overclock's success and whether it is causing any performance issues. Download: Intel XTU (Free)
  7. How to install OBS Studio on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS Install OBS Studio 27.2 in Ubuntu: The software package is available in Ubuntu default repositories, but old. For the most recent version, there are official Ubuntu PPA, Official Flatpak package, and community maintained Snap package. Option 1: Install OBS Studio via Ubuntu PPA: The official PPA may be the most favorite method, since it installs the app as the classic .deb. So far, the PPA contains 64-bit package for Ubuntu 18.04, Ubuntu 20.04, and Ubuntu 21.10. Press Ctrl+Alt+T on keyboard to open terminal. Next, paste the command below and hit Enter to add the PPA: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:obsproject/obs-studio Type user password (no asterisk feedback) when it asks and hit Enter to continue. After adding the PPA, Ubuntu 18.04 user need to manually refresh system package cache via command: sudo apt update Finally, either install the app via command: sudo apt install obs-studio Or update the software package using ‘Software Updater’ utility: Option 2: Install OBS Studio via Flatpak: The Fluthub repository offers the official 64-bit and 32-bit packages available to install in most Linux systems. The Flatpak package updates automatically and use the latest dependency libraries for best performance. However, it takes up more disk space! Firstly, press Ctrl+Alt+T on keyboard to open terminal and run command to install Flatpak daemon: sudo apt install flatpak Next, install OBS Studio as Flatpak using command: flatpak install https://dl.flathub.org/repo/appstream/com.obsproject.Studio.flatpakref Option 3: Install OBS Studio via Snap: Snap is another universal package manager that runs on most Linux systems. It’s developed by Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu. It updates automatically and takes more disk space as well. However, OBS Studio as Snap is NOT official package so far. Ubuntu user may install the Snap package easily from Ubuntu Software. Though, it’s v27.1.3 at the moment. NOTE: Snap, Flatpak, and Deb packages can be installed alongside with each other. So you may have duplicated app icons if more than one installed. Uninstall OBS Studio: To remove the Ubuntu PPA, open terminal and run command: sudo add-apt-repository --remove ppa:obsproject/obs-studio And remove the live streaming app .deb package using command: sudo apt remove --autoremove obs-studio To remove the Flatpak package, run command in terminal: flatpak uninstall --delete-data com.obsproject.Studio And clean up disk space via flatpak uninstall --unused. For the Snap package, simply use Ubuntu Software.

  12. To stream 1080p60 FPS on OBS Studio will depend on your CPU, GPU and Bandwidth. If you don't have a strong enough CPU or GPU, try streaming at a lower resolution. Test Your Internet Connection Speed For live streaming, we recommend an ideal upload speed of 6Mbps (6000kbps). This is enough to stream at your desired resolution, including 720p at 30 fps and 1080p at 60fps. The minimum upload speed for smooth streaming with ok quality is 3Mbps (3000kbps). You test your upload speed here: https://speedtest.net You need to get your total audio + video bitrate number to be smaller than your upload speed. For example, if you choose a video bitrate of 3500 kbps and an audio bitrate of 256 kbps, your upload speed will need to be at least 3,756kbps. or 3.7mbps If it’s 3000 kbps / 3mbps or above, you can stream with these settings. Click to calculate KBPS to MBPS CONFIGURING OBS STUDIO FOR 1080p60fps Streaming. Open OBS, and click on ‘Settings’. There are two ways you can do this—either access the ‘Settings’ option through ‘File’ or just click on it from the bottom right corner. OBS STUDIO VIDEO SETTINGS Set your output to 1080p60fps, Note: If you base is above 1080p, leave it alone and set your output only to 1080p. OBS STUDIO OUTPUT SETTINGS For best optimal settings, recommend using Output Mode: Advanced Encoder: NVENC / AMD (uses GPU) or x264 (uses CPU) Rescale Output: Unchecked (Do not rescale output) Rate Control: CBR - Constant Bitrate Bitrate: 7500kpbs Between 3000 and 9000 kbps to stream 1080p60 FPS (Below 8000 for twitch) Keyframe: 2 Preset: Quality or above Profile: High or Main Note: Using a high bandwidth may improve your stream quality but will require your viewers to view your stream at the bandwidth you set. This is why most platforms recommend 3.5mbps to 6mbps as livestreaming platform's report that majority of viewers are from mobile devices when livestreaming. But sometimes using these low bandwidth's may produce a not to great in quality stream, so chose your bandwidth to your liking without reaching platform limits.. Troubleshooting: Every pc system is different, such as cpu and gpu's, so you have to tinker with the settings, If you experience lag, frame drops, skips, or pixilation using the settings above. If you do experience any of those issues, try lowering your preset to low-latency quality, and profile to main first and then retest your stream, if problem persists, try lowering resolution to 1080p30, retest, rinse and repeat, if continued issues, further lowering resolution to 720p60fps or 720p30fps in your obs studios video settings for your stream until you find a sweet spot.

  14. Setting Controller in pairing mode Joy Con / Switch Pro Hold down the sync button until the controller LEDs enter a back n’ forth pattern. DualShock / DualSense Hold at the same time the PS + Share buttons until the lightbar starts flashing in a heartbeat pattern. Sony DualShock 4 USB Wireless adapter The official adapter from Sony supports only 1 controller, but allows the headphone jack to be used wireless for both audio and mic. To pair a DualShock 4 to it, both must be set to pairing mode. For the Wireless Adapter, its main body must be slightly pressed towards the USB port (until a “click” is felt) then hold it down in this position for 3 seconds, with its LED flashing in a heartbeat pattern indicating that it’s in pairing mode. Set then DualShock 4 into pairing mode (check the previous section) and it it should connect to the adapter. Final Checks Assuming everything is working as expected then DS4Windows should have no trouble detecting your controller, just make sure you haven’t accidentally stopped DS4Windows (in case you have, just press DS4Windows’ start button) If for whatever reason DS4Windows is failing to detect your controller or you are not sure if it has been properly connected, check the Controller Detection troubleshoot page.
  15. (DS4Windows), creates a virtual controller (Xbox360) & our original controller (PS4 / wireless controller / etc) sends the input to the virtual one which the games can recognize as a controller than can be used. The problem on certain games, usually co-op, split screen games, where more than 1 player is allowed to play on the same system, connecting a controller will show/display x2 controllers for 1 player. When using a controller with DS4Windows, it's highly recommended that the REAL controller is hidden from everything on the system besides DS4Windows itself, in order for only DS4Windows' VIRTUAL controller to remain visible to games. This is necessary to prevent the Double Input Issue. To fix the double input issue, ds4windows has a prebuilt in program called hidhide, which when you setup ds4windows, you may have installed it, If you haven't, You can install it, by clicking Setting's in DS4Windows, Followed by clicking Controller/Driver Setup to install HidHide. With HidHide it is possible to deny a specific application access to one or more human interface devices, effectively hiding a device from the application. In layman's HidHide, allows you hide your original controller (PS4/DS4), and only displays the virtual one (Xbox360/Dualshock4). In DS4Windows, Open HidHide Configuration Client in DS4Windows NOTE: If HidHide link does not open via DS4Windows, Try using alternative methods below. Method: 1 Open HidHide via Windows Search: Type: HidHide Configuration Client Method 2: Manually visiting HidHide installation folder. Default HidHide installation folder: C:\Program Files\Nefarius Software Solutions e.U Open the HidHideClient.exe to open the HidHideClient Configuration Client. HidHide Configuration Client Lets add DS4Windows application, to allow HidHide to use the Cloak. Optional: Adding of the DS4Windows Updaters is not needed. NEXT, let's hide our PS4 Controller and only allow our virtual one. We added the Sony PS4 controller to hidhide, Now in game, The virtual controller will only display. DS4Controller / Wireless Controller / Etc is no longer being shown. This will eliminate any issues with double controller and double input issues. Hope this helps out..... M1
  16. This reduced my input lag from 3.5 to 0.4 in DS4Windows To begin, were going to overclock our controller. You can overclock your controller using hidusbf Download hidusbf from github Extract the hidusbf folder contents to a folder on your computer. (Ignore / Do not extract hidusbfn) inside the driver folder run the setup.exe to open USB Devices Rate Setup. Select All or USB up top left to find your usb controller. Find your controller in the list, Select it / Highlight it, Then install service, Then Check Filter on Device, Next change to 1000, and Click Restart or Disconnect the controller. Replug the controller to complete. Close USB Devices Rate Setup. That's it, Check your latency on DS4Windows
  17. Like those other DS4 tools, but sexier. DS4Windows is an extract anywhere program that allows you to get the best DualShock 4 experience on your PC. By emulating an Xbox 360 controller, many more games are accessible. Other input controllers are also supported including the DualSense, Switch Pro, and JoyCon controllers (first party hardware only). This project is a fork of the work of Jays2Kings which Jays2Kings seem's has been abandoned. You can find the old project website at ds4windows.com if it is still available. Downloads Main builds of DS4Windows The .7zip package is smaller but requires the 7zip software in order to open/extract it Extract the package in a easily accessible folder (e.g.: Desktop, Documents, Download etc) DO NOT extract it inside a folder the requires elevated privileges (e.g.: Program Files, Windows) Execute the DS4Windows.exe file to run DS4Windows On first launch DS4Windows may ask you where to save its user data (settings and profiles): AppData folder (recommended): user data is stored outside of the program folder, inside a special folder reserved to your Windows user Program folder: user data is stored inside the same folder DS4Windows.exe is located. Requirements Windows 10 or newer (Thanks Microsoft) Microsoft .NET 5.0 or higher Visual C++ 2015-2019 Redistributable. x64 or x86 ViGEmBus driver (DS4Windows will install it for you) Microsoft 360 Driver (link inside DS4Windows, already installed by Windows if you've used a 360 controller before) Sony DualShock 4 or other supported controller Connection method: Micro USB cable Sony Wireless Adapter Bluetooth 4.0 (via an adapter like this or built in pc). Only use of Microsoft BT stack is supported. CSR BT stack is confirmed to not work with the DS4 even though some CSR adapters work fine using Microsoft BT stack. Toshiba's adapters currently do not work. Disabling 'Enable output data' in the controller profile settings might help with latency issues, but will disable lightbar and rumble support.
