Game on Physical & normal prio

other processes on streaming cores
900p60 is fine on twitch.tv // use 6000kbps + 6000kb buffer
"faster" or "fast"
level=4.2 cabac=1 8x8dct=1 partitions=i8x8,i4x4,p8x8,p4x4,b8x8,b4x4 ref=4 bframes=2 b-adapt=2 fast-pskip=0 rc-lookahead=30 sync-lookahead=30 me=hex merange=16 subme=6 deblock=-3:2:0 direct=auto aq-mode=3 trellis=0 deadzone-inter=11 deadzone-intra=11 psy-rd=0.15:0.0 weightp=2 weightb=1
i use either "area" or "bicubic" for downscaling // lanczos is not needed and usually doesnt improve over bicubic
actually from 1080p to 900p should be ok with "bilinear" too - as it maintains aspect-ratio 100%
Hello, @benman2785 . How are you?
I would like to thank you so much for helping me to reach a better quality for my stream. The Quality is now so much better than before. Sometimes i use 1080p 30FPS with the settings that you gave me for Single Player games and 900p 60FPS for motion fast games.
i am fine - hope so are you
glad i could help
I'm gonna try this tomorrow. Just streamed tonight with some of your settings and did it in 720p60fps. I think it was supercool quality. Thank You for your time and help, i really aprreciate it!
Also what you think about this one..
So the problem is if i want to play CS:GO on Faceit, i have to run anticheat before i open the game. Whenever i tried to stream CS:GO with that **bleep**ty anticheat and not only me, every player had -100fps, because it eats the CPU and searching / scanning for cheats or something like that. The question is, can i use NotCPUCores after i open the anticheat and loading up the game? So it is kinda like a launcher for a game, and it owns the game exe.. I don't want to try now, maybe you know something about this one, i'm afraid that i can get banned
it does not own the game.exe or injects anything - it should be 100% safe as all the programm does is already built into windows taskmanager
all NotCPUCores does is set core-affinity of processes and changing priority (and as the game has to be on "normal" it is most-likely not changing this)
so i highly doubt that this would trigger any Anti-Cheat - but you can ask on Faceit yourself
BUT some games (like Metro Exodus) dont like NotCPUCores or ProcessLasso as they duck-up the way the Game handles ressources - so test if it works fine with your game. ("CSGO" or "The Division" work fine)
can you describe the full setup in my obs for live streaming on x264 ? according to my specs and connections. my computer specs are: Ryzen 5 2600 . processor VGA RX 570 4gb ddr5 Memory 16 GB 3000 Mhz internet upload 4 Mbps
hi @GADINGGAMINGYT_26 ,
with a Ryzen 5 2600 you should use x264
your MAIN Problem is that you only have 4MBit/s upload speed
so we are limited to 720p
twitch.tv allows 3000kbps for 720p30 and 4500kbps for 720p50 or 720p60
qualitywise you should stick to 720p30@3000kbps + 650kb buffer + 96kbps aac audio
1. set OBS
custom x264 for 720p30:
level=4.2 cabac=1 8x8dct=1 partitions=i8x8,i4x4,p8x8,p4x4,b8x8,b4x4 ref=4 bframes=2 b-adapt=2 fast-pskip=0 rc-lookahead=15 sync-lookahead=15 me=hex merange=16 subme=6 deblock=-3:2:0 direct=auto aq-mode=3 trellis=0 deadzone-inter=11 deadzone-intra=11 psy-rd=0.15:0.0 weightp=2 weightb=1
1b. Video Tab
MAYBE use "bicubic" as Downscale Filter
1c. Advanced Tab
2a. start your game.exe and then tab back out to desktop and hit "ASSIGN" in NotCPUCores
3. you stream should work fine - have in mind: 4MBit/s is NOT MUCH for streaming - and those 4MBit/s HAVE TO BE STABLE for you to stream without problems...
4. if you want you can try to use 720p50@3300kbps + 550kb buffer + 96kbps aac
x264 options for 720p50:
level=4.2 cabac=1 8x8dct=1 partitions=i8x8,i4x4,p8x8,p4x4,b8x8,b4x4 ref=4 bframes=2 b-adapt=2 fast-pskip=0 rc-lookahead=25 sync-lookahead=25 me=hex merange=16 subme=6 deblock=-3:2:0 direct=auto aq-mode=3 trellis=0 deadzone-inter=11 deadzone-intra=11 psy-rd=0.15:0.0 weightp=2 weightb=1
all other settings same as for 720p30
