Do you have any logs or hints given by OBS itself? Seems like the blame falls on OBS here because it’s their encoder after all… (luckly, FiveM is open source so they shouldn’t really have too many troubles figuring out what FiveM is doing which the encoder doesn’t expect)

I do, it’s regarding a GPU issue I think. Which is odd, I have a 3070 and I’m nowhere near maxing it out since I don’t run on full settings. Is it possible that the UI lag setting on FiveM could be causing this? I can’t remember if it only started after I enabled that.

Ah, one of these cards with higher-than-usual failure/driver hang amounts. :confused:

Ive been streaming the game and having DXGI errors and crashing OBS COULD be linked to my crashes too! Ive been wondering about the encoder since my error is related to a handful of problems one of which could be an overlay of some kind.

Yeah - that’s indeed what some 3070s are apparently known for - recall that little debacle regarding stability issues on the first batches of 30 series cards? - and oftentimes people have this even on base GTA V which is somewhat concerning.

Sadly getting a replacement card of a fixed revision is nearly impossible these days. :confused:

worst case you could try underclocking in MSI Afterburner, heh. I doubt a 3070 will be much worse if you play/record GTA with it with 200 MHz reduced core clocks.

I have a GTX 1080 TI Amped Extreme Zotac, the thing runs like a god damn monster… Wait a minute. Maybe in Bios I can use … the pre picked settings, i think i might be running in silent mode . Since the thing cant seem to utilize 100 percent altho i have SEEN it do it before, it just doesent tho. Or i cant hit it with anything hard enough for it to even get above 70 or 60 percent when coming to utilization. Im running Streamlabs OBS. Any tips on that ??? What should i be doing? Ah not to steer the topic away from the OP.
