Any Nvidia users managed to get shadowplay working with TDM?

I cannot open the overlay to start it - it's like Geforce doesn't recognise TDM as software that it might work in.

Yet Steam overlay works fine, so... maybe can steam broadcast to webpage and shadowplay the browser window..?

Oh... the latest driver and GeForce update appears to have enabled the Nvidia overlay in TDM.

This is the second time I have posted in a week about an issue and posting about it appears to have fixed it...

I tried shadowplay but found it partly flaky, I instead went with OBS for recording (local, then upload to YT) and streaming (twitch)

I'll do that and hang out with the nerd-crowd, if you stop trying to wreck the main menu and in-game GUI with overly complicated camera set-ups and cyberpunk, Freyk and work more on formatting the wiki so that it's neat, legible and not a mess of copy-pasta.

How about telling someone to quit asking if [i/{t/s}(he)y] can change the success screen in a thread about the main menu in Art Assets forum, instead of posting in "newbie questions" or "editors forum"..?

It's not TDM tech support - it was an issue with Nvidia (ie, a general thing, not specific technical TDM), thereby qualifying as non-TDM tech support, if you want to get picky like that.

But OK - I'll make sure I analyse the context and content of all things so they are posted in the correct place in future - and not discuss campaign and mission download options in the dark radiant technical support section, or font choices in mapping video threads, or answer people's questions about if they can change the success screen background for their FM in discussions about changing the main menu to look like half-life 2 in art assets.

I'll simply refer them to you, so you can tell them to post in the correct section, OK?

 

One rule for everyone else, one for me again..? Nu-uh. Not happening.

As for Shadowplay, it is very useful when trying to do the same thing (that's under 20 mins) over and over a few times and then finally getting it right or catching something neat.
I'm banned from Twitch for streaming adobe tutorials. Same person got me banned from adsense due to running click fraud on my main channel's videos at the same time.

Steam broadcasting is just as good for showing someone something (can glitch it to show desktop, same as in-home streaming - v nice to be able to use desktop power software on craptop) if skype screenshare fails.

Besides, Shadowplay sounds more thief-like than another TLA for TDM like OBS.

There are lots of edge cases where it's not entirely clear where a thread should go.  But that's something for admins to worry about.

Thank you for mitigation, Springheel, and I apologise to Freyk for my bad tempered response:

We have had a good working relationship together in the past on your projects and I do not want there to be any hard feelings...

Sure you know that in any great task it is not enough for a person to simply depend upon himself, but force in any guise will inspire resistance.

I will double-check I am limiting my posts to the most relevant forum section, in future.

Better option is Open Broadcasting Software (OBS) - It's free, and the quality is excellent, and you can even set it up so

your GPU does most of the work.

This is my setup for it:

Unfortunately, it does not resolve the problem of having hours of gameplay to trawl in order to find a moment, since OBS appears to dump files much as FRAPS, rather than cache a decent amount of time for immediate capture.

Life's too short to be trawling through hundreds of gigs of video files for a moment.

It's like searching every porno site for a jizz-flick that looks just like the girl you fancy atm, instead of just buying her a drink and being nice.

OBS' replay buffer doesn't seem to yet a contender.

Fraps dumps massive files. With that setup, a 30 minute video is 3gb. However do as you choose. :)

Shadowplay works fine here in TDM... i just tried. Did you try to start TDM without the Steam overlay?

It was working after I updated some drivers, chakkman - thanks.

It's not the size that matters, it's how long you have to spend fucking around, looking for 10 seconds of something in 30 minutes.

(at least, that's what my ex said... but she also said size matters...)

Thanks for the tip.

(repeats thing about what she said...)
