can anyone help me with streaming? i was trying to use OBS but neither game capture nor window capture seem to identify the game. i tried to lower the resolution on the OBS but it didnt do anything. anyone willing to help?
I use OBS and stream window capture on window mode. To make it recognize the game for the first time I had to launch d2, then make OBS the "top" window before d2 launched, otherwise it will minimize when I click off and OBS doesn't see it.
Run the game in windowed mode, but it may take some time getting use to it. If you are streaming, windowed mode may be preferable anyway, since it will be easier to move in between D2 and other applications.
When I recorded gameplay videos I was starting the game itself in Windowed mode (-W on the shortcut) and then capturing my window as others have mentioned. I believe just using your entire screen capture works as well.
It should be noted that I quickly switched from OBS to OBS Studio because it allowed for stereo sound which helps with editing, both are free.
If memory serves the only issues I ran into with either software was trying to use game capture which would just give you a black screen. I'm fairly certain both screen and window capture worked fine. I'll need to double check once I'm back home if there was anything else I did.
