What Chubz says. OMSI is a weird animal, so OBS won't detect it properly. It just means you'll need to prepare yourself in advance so you're not showing your desktop etc. Get some keybinds set up with OBS so you can start/stop recording/streaming without tabbing out.

my setting I have windows 10 64 bit processor and I'm also running 64 bit OBS. I don't have any graphics card installed but my pc has intel HD default graphics setting. Im running OBS studio as administrator that still doesn't work (as shown in screenshot).

All I do is capture my display which means OBS doesn't have to look for anything it literally just captures what's on my main monitor

you mean like this (screenshot) my display capture does work but I have discovered something intriguing game capture is working for some games for example Xplane 11 but it's doesn't work well with others like OMSI 2 (screenshot). For some reasons it doesn't work well with some games the game capture feature. I don't know why.

Yes that happens with certain games. An example being OMSI, the game is never recognised anywhere lol, there isn't much you can do about that I don't think.

Hi guys after playing aroung with OBS the only solution is to use display capture also I have made a new youtube channel please check it out and give me feedback how I can improve also I'm a bit camera shy and I don't have expensive microhone or webcam to record with. I hope you all have a great 2019🎆🎆🎆🎆🎆
