    Hi, thank you for this guide I appreciate it.

    I am having a little trouble recording and this is my first time using OBS so it has taken me a little while to get used to it. I am currently playing games with my 144 Hz monitor connected to my desktop gaming PC and am using my new Blade as my streaming PC. When I stream to my Blade and go full screen it only puts the screen in the top right corner and it also records like this. I think that it may be because I am streaming at 1080p on the Ripsaw to the blade's 3200x1800 screen so it is just keeping it at 1080p. I'm not sure if that what is going on or not but if it is is there any way to fix it?

    Is this absolutely necessary? I've done the standard Clone method, and my benq 144hz monitor seems to be running at 144 still and the ripsaw at 60.

    I did everything and my main screen 144hz is laggy. idk how to fix
  5. While that did work for some games it doesn't work with all. I had no luck getting that to work on R6 siege without it stuttering the game like crazy. I wonder if Xsplit has a preview mode and it would work better on that.

    Can it be used as a capture card?
  7. Hey, i have a question.
    I did the same as shown in the diagram but i did it a little different. I used OBS on my gaming PC which is 1440p 144Hz G-sync and did the preview screen. After sending the preview to my stream PC - there i use Xsplit Broadcaster and my capture card is Elgato HD60 Pro but here's the problem.
    When i play in 2560x1440 144FPS on my gaming PC the preview start lagging. I don't know why. But when i change the FPS limit to 60 - the preview image is flawless and nice and i still can play in 1440p but in 60 FPS. When i change it again to any FPS higher then 60 it starts lagging. So how did you made it work? The capture cards are from different companys but the functuonality is the same. Help me please. Thx
  8. Hi, You HAVE to use OBS classic preview.

    Could be your internet bandwidth that's the issue.

    Just managed to have this working. Installed Win10 on my MacbookPro, hooked up the Ripsaw, followed instructions with a bit of tweaking since I'm using OBS studio and works perfect when I started a test record.

    Remaining to do item is to figure out how to capture the sound as well.
  14. The problem with this is that the OBS preview window is lower quality than what you'd get if you were to stream your game directly (very noticeable lag). To do the comparison yourself, try cloning your monitor rather than extending it to capture the game directly. It's much smoother when you clone, however then you can't play on 144hz or a higher resolution if you have that. For example I have a 1440p 144hz monitor that I want to play on, and yet capture at 720p. I can do this using "extend displays" but I can't using "clone displays".

    I'm currently trying a workaround by using other preview programs that aren't OBS since I so far haven't been able to get the OBS preview quality to be good enough.

    If anyone has any ideas or understands the quality degradation I'm talking about (mostly it just looks choppier than if I clone or stream directly from my main PC) please let me know.

    This is my mini review of the ripsaw with a detailed description of my problem.

    I ended up returning the ripsaw because of these issues and something else I noticed. It only gave me the option of 1080i, not 1080p, and 720p is the native resolution of the ripsaw. I'm thinking this is one of the reasons I've been having so much trouble with it looking bad.

  15. Hey guys, I really would like to follow up your guide. But my problem is that i cant select other refresh rates then 85 or 100 when I extend my monitor with my streaming card. Got an Acer Predator XB241H. Only if I got one monitor activated I can take the 144.

    Please help me out :slightly_sad:

    i bought a razer ripsaw. My gaming PC i have a TITAN X video card i have a ASUS PG348Q 1440p Ultrawide. and i had issues getting the stream going basically. i went like this

    DVI-HDMI Cable from gaming PC to Streaming monitor hdmi port 2
    HDMI Cable to HDMI Port from gaming PC to Razer Ripsaw In
    Displayport Cable from gaming pc video card to gaming monitor

    DVI-HDMI Cable from streaming PC to HDMI port 1 on streaming monitor
    HDMI Cable from streaming PC to HDMI out on capture card

    I have the Mic set up on the streaming pc. I cant get audio unless the mic picks it up from the gaming pcs speakers. I and using a program called voicemeeter and i have Audio 1 as my SPDIF out (my surround sound logitech z908 or something is connected with optical cable) and audio 2 is razer ripsaw and i saw another (the same name) option for razer ripsaw so i made that audio 3 but i still get no audio via capture card and i have issues with the downscaling. also to get it working and to duplicate display 1 and 2 i had to connect the DVI-HDMI cable from gaming PC to Streaming monitor HDMI port 2. I do not know why that worked to atleast get a picture on a stream. I also went into GeForce Control panel because all of a sudden this morning i couldnt get it working and i changed the resolution in there on mointor 1 to 1080p and then it showed up on the streaming pc in OBS (my desktop) and when i go into display settings monitor 1 still shows at 1440p. But i cant game in 1440p but output in 1080p to streaming PC. This is getting super aggravating. I hope I explained everything properly. I very new to streaming. Thank you guys for all of your help in advance!

    Thanks for the guide. Going to upgrade my pc soon and was going to grab the ripsaw afterwards. I'm assuming it works the same with xsplit? I saw a few people mention it but no one says if it's the same.
