Stuck in 'INIT' No matter what game I play
« on: June 28, 2018, 01:36:52 pm »
So I am trying to record Ark @ 2K medium settings as I have a 2K monitor Dxtory FPS says game is running at high 70's low 80's but when I try to start it is stuck at INT. and will stay there no matter what.  I tried playing with different setting but I am stuck now ..last time I had the same problem that it was being caused by Asus's Sonic Radar ..I dont have it installed this time but still having issues. It is with every game that I have  launched, no matter what game. Any help would be greatly appreciated

In your errorlog:
Code: [Select]
PID:7096     TID:3540     TickCount: 2092312 VideoEncoderVCM::InitOnThread Error ICCompressBegin err=ICERR_BADFORMAT(-2)
PID:7096     TID:3540     TickCount: 2092312 VideoEncoderVCM::InitOnThread fcc=m701

means codec with fcc=m701 (ie: Matrox MPEG-2 I-frame HD FCC:m701) has *some* issue encoding given video.

one google search later:

Matrox VFW MPEG-2 I-frame HD codec now lets you render and play back Matrox MPEG-2 I-frame .avi files in all HD formats (720p, 1440x1080i/p, and full-size 1080i/p)

my take on this is that the codec can apparently only do 720p, 1440x1080 and 1080p resolutions, 2560x1440 is not supported. Use a different codec

My go-to codec for all recording is MagicYUV. Though, if you're accustomed to using lossy codecs, you might struggle with disk IO and/or filesizes. 2560x1440 @ 60 fps starts to get *quite* a disk space hog. IIRC MagicYUV it started using around 70-100 MB/s at that resolution & framerate.

Other than that.. x264vfw? Though it might use quite a bit of cpu. I'm not really sure if there are all that many fast enough lossy vfw codecs out there

Otherwise, maybe OBS & nvenc? Shadowplay?

Thanks  again. .how is the quality  of the recording with those codecs?...I tried  OBS but felt no matter what settings were set it just felt subpar  compared to DxTory. Anyways  will play around with the codec mentioned above.

magicyuv is lossless. so quality is as good as it gets

you can get lossless with obs too, if thats what you're aiming for
