( USM ) Unusual Source Manager
« on: May 14, 2017, 08:21:07 pm »
I created this simple program to allow programs such as OBS to act as a proxy for Dxtory's game capture.  There is a video guide to explain the setup.  Try it out and let me know if this is a useful program or if I should junk it.
USM guide : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=34DkRXuCI4M

How does it work ?
It prepares the preview in OBS for capture by another program.

Normally the capture chain is  :  Game > Dxtory > output
With USM it changes to :  Game > OBS > Dxtory > output

Why would someone want to use OBS as a source ?
Using OBS or other programs as a source opens up a number of possibilities : Desktop capture, alternative OpenGL support, support for dynamic resolution games, and so on.

I've tested OBS + Dxtory under a few scenarios and it worked fine for short test recordings, but it would require more testing to be considered stable.

Tip: Ignoring some java games like Minecraft only seems to work if you uncheck "Use shared java profile" under Global settings.  Once Dxtory creates a new profile for it, use that new profile to block the java program.

The program is attached to the post and you may compile it yourself if you wish as the source is included ( Autoit programs always get a few hits on VT regardless of the code ).  The program is portable, so it can run from almost any location.


( Optional ) Dxt javahash -- Generates a hash to ignore a specific java process --
Instructions are in the readme, but it should only be needed by those who can't blacklist a java process with Dxtory's ignore setting.

Using Windows 10 ?  Try the latest version first http://exkode.com/dxtory-downloads-en.html

Thank you! This will be really helpful for all those problematic games.
