Ever since a few updates ago, the GVR stopped showing the HUD for me in which it had hotkeys, time and recording status information.
Now I press the hotkey and I have no idea if it worked or not, don't know if I'm recording and for how long. Any idea what this is? I used to have Raptr ingame overlay off and it still shows so I don't think that's the issue.
Can you right click on the AMD icon in the system tray and select preferences and then GVR?
You should see something like this:
Is 'Enable software encoding' greyed out like it is on mine?
Indeed it is. Same as yours.
What game(s) is this happening in?
Any game I play. That includes titles such as Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, DotA 2, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, DayZ, Skyrim and so on. Battlefield and Transistor never even recorded regardless.
Would you be able to recreate the issue where the HUD is not appearing when attempting to record and then send us logs? We may be able to find why it's not appearing. This isn't a common issue we're seeing so it would be interesting to see what could be causing it.
To send to your log files:
1) Open the Raptr client
2) Right click on the Raptr icon in the system tray
3) Click on Help, then Feedback.
4) In the window that appears, check the box at the bottom (Send log file).
5) In the text box, please either describe the issue or paste the forum post for your issue.
6) Hit send.
7) Post back here when you have sent your logs.
(Note: Make sure that you quit out of any game you are in before you send in your logs.)
Done. I even hit record and it did as when I closed the game it showed me the clips. Thing is, still no HUD as expected. Logs have been sent and description is this forum post link.
Quick question: You mentioned it's not giving you any indication of recording. However, is it recording? Does it save a file at all?
Correct. The file is there and all (for the games the GVR works with at least, example BF4 seems to work for other people but it doesn't for me and some others), it's just that it is a bit infuriating that sometimes I don't know if I'm really recording or not and for how long.
Do you have a laptop? Or is this a desktop machine?
Is there an onboard video option? (Like could you plug your monitor directly into your mobo?)
Okay, sometimes, when there is onboard video support, we can do some strange things. But the fact that the hud isn't displaying that's a little strange.
First, I'd like you to disable Raptr in-game support on a game you're trying to record.
Disabling in-game support, only stops the normal in-game functions not the GVR. The GVR has it's own basic hud that should display, in the upper left corner.
Can you tell me if that displays?
