So, we recently had an update on July 8th for CS:GO, but it seems like it brought along some challenges for us gamers. One of the things that got affected was our ability to capture clips using the game capture feature. And guess what? This update didn't just affect us, but even other streaming applications like Moments faced the same issue. The purpose behind this update was to combat cheaters using 3rd party programs, but it ended up interfering with Moments' game capture option.
But worry not, we've got a solution for you!
Basically, there are two ways to capture CS:GO gameplay with Moments now: game capture and screen capture. Game capture is your best bet as it directly records the game without any distractions on your computer. However, for the best user experience, we've defaulted CS:GO to screen capture. But if you still want to use game capture, we've got some extra steps for you to follow.
If you want to switch to game capture for CS:GO, simply head to your Moments settings and make the switch. And don't forget to add this line in your launch options: -allow_third_party_software. Easy-peasy!
Now, let's talk about the downsides of screen capture.
The good news is that this change won't impact Moments users as much as it would impact streamers using other programs like OBS. However, if you're still on Windows 7 or lower, you might experience some performance issues with screen capture. But fear not! If you're using Windows 8 or 10, you're in luck because the performance is just as good as game capture.
One thing to keep in mind is that if you alt tab during the clip, the program might capture whatever is on your desktop or screen. But don't worry, as long as it doesn't get in the way of your highlight, you should be able to cut it out of your clip.
Remember, we're here to make your gaming experience the best it can be!
Keep gaming and have fun!
