A few days ago ReLive was working fine. IIRC I was on 17.4.2 the last time it was working. I upgraded to 17.4.4 to see if it fixed a common problem with a recent AMD driver and Endless Space 2 (it didn't, but they patched the game so that's beside the point).
Now when I tried to record War Thunder, after hitting the hotkey it's fine for a couple seconds and then the game freezes while you can still hear the sound.
Here's an example: 2017 04 29 17 49 - YouTube
When it's focused on the game, try to imagine me trying to turn the camera and moving the cursor around, but it's frozen. When I alt-tab out, it goes back to recording full motion even with the game in the background. I've tested it with other games so it's not just War Thunder. Recording windowed works but windowed fullscreen does not.
Things I've tried:
- AMD Cleanup utility
- AMD Cleanup Utility
- AVC codec
- HEVC codec
- Windowed fullscreen
- High bitrate
- Low bitrate
- In-game res
- Upscaled res
- Downscaled res
- Saving to main hard drive
- Saving to external hard drive (what I was doing before when it worked)
- OC Mode (ASUS GPU Tweak)
- Gaming (ASUS GPU Tweak)
I'm out of ideas.
ASUS ROG Strix RX 480 8GB OC Edition
Windows 10 Home up-to-date (i.e. creators update)
edit: games also lock up for about 10 seconds when I hit the ReLive hotkey to take a screenshot.
