I know Tora has been pulling off big wins lately but was u8 playing 100% here? Great accomplishment Tora on top of many others.

I have to agree, this is approaching equinox-levels of disruptiveness. Babyshark, you've evolved into a unique demographic of vengeful & attention-seeking problem user. if you continue disrupting other people's threads with these random trolly interjections then i will probably enable manual post moderation on your account. if you have any comments about this please keep your messages < 500 characters if you'd like me to read/reply to them and make sure to use an @ping.

Why does it not bother you that XuRnT called Tupac's REAL LIFE EMPLOYER and told the employer LIES about Tupac in an effort to get him in trouble or fired so he can't support his family?
tupac also said I "called the FBI on him", 90% of everything that guy says is delusional drivel. please stop spreading rl slander/accusations about other war2 players here. future threads of this nature are also more appropriately situated in this board (Flame Wars & Off Topic), if you're planning to keep making them.

A lot of people said he went back and abused the old kali ladders once no one played there anymore. Which is pathetic. But you have to admire his drive.
i believe it, given that we're talking about the guy who set up a script to auto-downvote people's posts on here...

the website is going down forever. if the server goes down too, youll lose touch with this community for good.  the server is closing too.  this is not a joke.  DO NOT PANIC.  this is just a joke.  it's all over.  IT'S ALL OVER.  the climate crisis is irreversible.  You have 10 years before the world changes.  Kill yourselves now.  DO NOT PANIC
telling people to kill themselves is not authorized on the war2 forum, i'm afraid im going to have to ban you forever

also the hosting situation has been resolved without requiring any downtime, so everyone can relax & let's all play some war2 !!!

40) Support Requests / Re: streaming problems..
« on: January 19, 2019, 02:48:58 PM »
great, glad to hear you got it working !! :D :thumbsup: changing the resolution to 640x480 would probably have had the biggest effect out of all the changes i listed so i probably should have emphasized that more. also good to know you had better results w/ OBS studio. OBS classic was the only version at the time i wrote the guide & ive never gotten around to updating it (since most of the information carries over, the interface is just a little different)

oof i see what you mean, i watched some of a recent broadcast & that stream lag is brutal. i had the same kind of lag on mine & was able to mostly resolve it by changing a bunch of settings.

so i set war2obs up ... set it to 30fps.. but fois[as] said he was watching the stream and it said 60 fps.. what gives?
how was fois measuring it? your broadcast from 2 days ago shows 20-30 fps in the video stats which matches a 30 fps setting in OBS.



in that replay you're averaging low-to-mid 20s fps & sometime dropping lower which explains the lag. my stream had similar low fps spikes & after i changed settings it stays pretty consistently at 30 fps or slightly above & the lag improved. 

i recommend running TwitchTest which is useful to determine the best server to use & what sort of bandwidth/quality you can expect when using it: https://r1ch.net/projects/twitchtest (make sure to click "north america" checkbox since those are the only servers you need to test). it's hard to advise more without knowing your full system/connection specs & OBS settings, but some general tips for an average connection/machine:

- use CBR in "encoding settings" if you're not


- process priority class "normal", x264 preset "veryfast", keyframe interval "2" in "Advanced settings"


- bump up to at least 1500 bitrate if you think your connection can handle it (the twitchtest website has more useful info about bandwidth, it's helpful to read all the info on that page)

- consider dropping your resolution to 640x480, rn you're broadcasting at your full system res 1600x900 which is sending more data than you need to be (since war2 is max 640x480) which is tying up more bandwidth to broadcast essentially the same thing. (here's what mine looks like @ 640x480 https://www.twitch.tv/videos/361495418) since you're on win10 a window capture will probably work + change the base resolution in settings > video (you might need to install fois's ddraw file first for it to work https://github.com/FunkyFr3sh/Aqrit-DDraw-Hack/releases it bonus allows windowing war2 w/ alt+enter !!)





- can also be useful to read some random "stream optimization" guides which is helpful to learn what all the dif settings mean & how they interact, which will help you gauge what settings will work best w/ your setup https://blog.streamelements.com/8-obs-tips-to-make-your-stream-run-smoothly-a8d634b34bce

- you could also set a start/stop hotkey so you can toggle the stream before & after games, it breaks your broadcasts into individual videos & makes it easier to pick out GGs afterwards so you can highlight them or export to youtube




hope it helps!!! i wanna see the tk+lambchops V shotgun series when it happens :D

there's a partial backup of the forum available at http://occult.war2.ru it's made from scraping the site though & only went so many levels deep so the tail end gets cut off a lot of the multi-page threads i think
