Thanks to all the kind donators!
What I did
- Ordered and partly installed The New PC™
- Intel i7-4790K
- NVIDIA Geforce GTX 780
- 16GB RAM
- 2x256GB SSD
- 1TB HDD
- First capture and encoding test successful:
- ARMA III, Ultra Settings (most demanding game I came up with)
- Full monitor capture at 1920x1200, 60FPS
- h.264 'veryfast' preset, 10Mbit constant bitrate
- Result: 60FPS maintained throughout the video
- CPU usage between 40-60%
- This update is the first one edited and rendered on the new PC!
(You can't tell a difference, it was just faster for me)
- Set up the Official Citybound Wiki
- Self-hosted, forever ad-free
- A couple of early helpers have already contributed content!
- Might even be integrated directly into the game
What I will probably do next
- Study more for my final exam
- Maybe do another livestream on Saturday
- Fall back to regular updates after next week, hopefully even regular livestreams!
