is these a way to get live split to work with xsplit. im not a fan of obs was trying to see if someone has gotten the two to work together.

Uhh what do you mean? XSplit works the same way OBS just with a different interface. You start XSplit, you start LiveSplit, then you capture LiveSplit in XSplit using (I think) window capture on the LiveSplit window. Running them together is dead simple, can you elaborate on what issues you’re having?

I still not sure I understand what you’re asking. LiveSplit by default always shows only a timer, you need to add splits and a layout yourself if you want to make it look any different; look up tutorials online if you’re curious or need more information.

Also, LiveSplit by default only responses to key presses when it’s in focus (when you’re clicked on it). If you want to control is eve while clicked into a different window/app, enable Global Hotkeys in LiveSplit so any key press you do will do the designated action in LiveSplit.

Based on what you're saying, it sounds like you're playing a PC game. I don't do any PC gaming so this is a lot of guessing on my part, but in order to get LiveSplit to show up when covering it with a full screen game, you need to capture it through I think Window Capture. What this will do is capture the window of the application, rather than the area of the screen it's on. This will allow you to see LiveSplit in XSplit even if it's covered with another application like the game.

As for controlling it, Global Hotkeys should still work, but a lot of people run the game in Windowed/Widescreen mode to make sure that it's still controllable and easier to see for you (you can search the forums here for similar questions/solutions to this). Or, if you have a second monitor or a spare TV you can hook up to your computer, this is trivial since you can have the game on one screen and LiveSplit and XSplit on the other.

Unfortunately that's the best help I can offer with what little understanding I'm gleaning from your posts.
