Thread: Can't get OBS to capture game

Started by: cevrosacevrosa

imo the best way to capture to avoid fps issues is:
1-Play in windowed mode
2-OBS capture with Display Capture (not game capture) , you can then do some cropping if needed
3-Disable the stream/record preview once everything is ready to go

Key Kaptain! I heard that a lot people had that issue when jumping around the ship near the power cell. I would recommend avoiding to jump the ship maybe? Where on the map does it usually crash for you?

No you are stuck with that weapon forever as far as I know. xD

I was annoyed too when I started on PC because on Xbox I grinded them myself of course. But I got used to swapping weapons without accidently firing the remote rocket.

For Felucia you could use the presicion pistol and fire the acklays legs instead of a rocket shot. It is more consitent and barely slower (about 0.5 to a full second?).

Hey there Einoshi! Not really sure what to tell sure but the infinite sprint is VERY precise. Keep in mind that if you fall/drop from too high it will cancel the sprint and so it is impossible to do the buffered version if the ledge is too high.

Found a way to make it work without breaking the current IL leaderboard. It will take a little bit of time but I will slowly make it work and add everything. 🙂

I just hope that people will have an actual interest in submitting more times to the IL leaderboard and not just to get quick an easy WR on their speedrunner page. 🙂

It does not seem like you can set it up without the access to internet unfortunately 🙁 . Something to try maybe if your computer at least as a wifi card would be to create a hotspot with your phone and connect your computer to it and then configure livesplit. Once it is configured you probably don't need internet access anymore.

Thread: Step by step tutorial: How to install the load remover

Started by: DarkLightBocoDarkLightBoco

@anyone who wants to install the load remover with livesplit

A lot of people are still having issues with this so here's a step by step reminder on how install the load remover for steam:

1.Download the file
- The file can be downloaded from our ressources section here on speedrun.com "Load Remover Steam Version 12/01/2018"
- Extract the file from the .zip folder somewhere on your computer (you probably want to keep near your splits folder or something but it is up to you).
- Current file name is "Working SWBF2 LR.asl"

2.Write the specific "correct" name of the game in livesplit
- Official name of the game is "Star Wars: Battlefront II" BUT YOU DON'T WANT TO USE THAT.

- Right Click --> Edit Splits...
Write the game name as so:"Star Wars Battlefront II" (notice of the ":" is not there).

-If done correctly you should see a message above the Real Time and Game Time tabs:"Load Removal is available. (By lako3000)"

3.Install the file downloaded from speedrun.com
- Still in the "Edit Splits..." window, you want to press the Activate button. Then press Settings.

- A new window will pop up when pressing Settings. Click "Browse..." and select the Working SWBF2 LR.asl you previously downloaded

- Once that is done, press OK to close out the Component Settings tab (ignore the options that are under Script Path)

4. Set livesplit to Game Time
- By default livesplit is set to Real Time. We need it to be set to Game Time for the script to work.

- Right Click --> Compare Against --> Game Time

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So there you go, if everything here is done right the load remover should work for you. Remember that the only thing the script does is pausing the timer for you, so you will need to start the timer on your own and also press the split button when you reach a victory screen.

Make sure the steam version of this game is to the lastest version.

Happy speed running, may the RNG be with you.

You are allowed to use a segment of your attempt to submit as an IL. Just create another video featuring only that mission and then submit to the leaderboard.

Oh yes actually, forgot something else really important... Timer needs to be set to "Game Time" not real time...

Right Click --> Compare Against --> Game Time

My bad for that it has been a while since have set up the script from scratch.

Video on how to set up the load remover:

The video is a bit choppy since the recording was set to 60fps instead of 80fps.

Make sure your steam/game are up to the lastest update. You have to start the timer manually but after that the script will automaticly pause the timer once the victory screen pops up and then resume on the black screen of the next mission.

Also if you have multiple splits you have to do the split manually during the victory screen (which I totally forgot to do in the video xD).

You can download Lako's script in the resources section (make sure to grab the lastest one).

Hope this helps!

I think that is normal. If you type in Star Wars Battlefront II without ":" the message "Load Removal is available. (By lako3000)" should still appear.

Yeah I know, I did the same mistake too when I tried for the first time. The official name has the ":" but you have to write the name without it for our splits.

The first few things you should make are:

1-Battlefront II is up to date to the lastest steam version

2-Make sure the game name is exactly as follow: "Star Wars Battlefront II"
If done correctly there should the message: "Load Removal is available By Lako3000"
On the same screen, the script must be added from the settings button

3-Make sure livesplit is set to "Game Time" , it is usually set "Real Time" by default.
(Right click --> Compare against)

If this still does not work you could stop by our discord. Lako is pretty active there usually and he would be able to help you out.
