With CS:GO’s update on July 8th we lost the ability to capture clips in our current state with game capture. This update also caused issues with other streaming applications as well, Moments uses the same idea. The reason this update was dropped was to help deter cheaters from using 3rd party programs and it also happened to interfere with the game capture option of Moments.
Basically there are only two ways to capture CS:GO gameplay with Moments, game capture and screen capture. Game capture records the game directly and nothing else on your computer, using this would be the best case scenario. For the best user experience we have defaulted CS:GO to screen capture due to some extra manual steps for the use of game capture. If you'd like to use game capture, read more below.
Want to use game capture for CS:GO?
If you desire, you can switch to game capture for CS:GO. Just go into your Moments settings and switch to game capture on the desired game.
Make sure to put this line in your launch options: -allow_third_party_software
Downsides to screen capture
The good thing about this change is that Moments users wouldn’t be impacted as much as a streamer using a program like OBS would. If you’re still on Windows 7 or lower you’ll have some performance issues with screen capture, Windows 8/10 are both as good as game capture performance wise. Don’t worry GameSense and auto-clipping will still work with this change!
Sadly the biggest problem with this is that if you alt tab in the clip, the program will see whatever is on your desktop/screen. You should usually be able to cut this part out of your clip as long as it’s not in between your highlight.
