Which Hard Drive for FRAPS/DXtory recording? - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Thread Starter 
Thanks for the tip. I just bought Dxtory and I installed the UT codec. The reason is I have an older i5 760 @ 4GHz, so it is pretty well being pushed to its limits. Which setting of the UT codec would you recommend? It has 4 different choices and unfortunately I am not familiar with the Codec acronyms, so I have no idea which one to go for.

Edit: Ok I selected the top RBG one and it seems to be working great. Anyway another issue I have with Dxtory is it will not work when I have MSI Afterburner or EVGA Precision X running because apparently they are fighting over something called RTSS. Is there any way around this or am I going to have to just do without my overclocks/custom fan profiles when I am recording?

Since you said RGB is working for you, try using RGBA(A for alpha channel) for better quality. If your HDD can't handle it, or if you find it takes up too much space, then stick with RGB. If you can't use RGB later on due to your HDD filling up(lower performance), then I would recommend you use at least YUY422(AKA YUY2, or colorspace 4:2:2).

 

RTSS.exe is the OSD(On Screen Display) process for Rivatuner, MSI AB, and EVGA Precision. AFAIK, Dxtory does not work with the RTSS.exe OSD. But I haven't tried messing with the settings to make it work, since I don't use the OSD anyways. But you can try disabling the overlay in Dxtory:

If that doesn't work, then you will have to find the process that Dxtory uses for it's overlay and kill it. This is of course assuming that it uses a separate process.

Ok I found a better solution. You can disable the overlay in EVGA PrecisionX.
Here is a picture made by an EVGA dev showing which settings need to be turned off in order to disable the EVGA OSD server. I tried this myself and it works like a champ.

For MSI AB 2.1.0 I disabled the OSD in the software, but the OSD server still ran. So I renamed the RTSS.exe, that way AB wouldn't be able to start up the OSD server. Deleting the OSDServer folder also works. Whether or not it was necessary to get Dxtory working properly was not my concern, I just didn't want the process running if I didn't need it. So check to see if the process still runs in the background.

With those settings on EVGA Precision RTSS is not running anymore.
