Recording Video in PC
« on: April 14, 2018, 11:12 PM »
Okay, so my main question here is what is the best way to record video in Planet Coaster? I noticed a lot of people on YouTube using Cheat Engine, which I did below, but I couldn't get anything good out of anything with high settings. I run my game on pretty low settings (I'll have to go in-game another time to make a list of all the things I have turned off), and I was hoping for a way to record well with high settings.

I'm not disappointed in how this turned out, I just wish I could have done it in higher settings. Thoughts?

What are your computer specs. If you can't get a decent look, even when you're using Cheat Engine, you're only alternative may be to upgrade your computer.

16GB Ram
Intel Core i7-4790 Processor (3.60 GHz)
64bit Windows 10
~190GB free of memory left

Sorry, I meant to post these. It completely slipped my mind.

Looks like Intel HD Graphics 4600.
Which just feels like that's going to be.....not good.

That doesn't sound like a graphics card to me. I believe you have on board graphics through your motherboard. Without a dedicated graphics card, your rig is not going to be able to play PC very well. Is this a laptop or desktop?

I'm on a desktop, I guess I just don't have a designated graphics card? What little research I just did on Google in 5 minutes (combined with what you said) makes it seem like I'm running through the motherboard. So what are my options for upgrading?

You can add a graphics card to some systems that have integrated graphics through the mother board. It all depends on your system and if you have a slot available to add one. Check your manual, or google your rig online to see if it's an option. If you can, a dedicated graphics card should improve performance quite a bit.

That's the website I tend to use when checking compatibility/upgrading. It's always served me well and should help you find best buys etc.

a Nvidia  GTX 1060 6gb is a decent card for that rig (assuming it is compatible with boards etc) and is what I've used in the past. It will also open up Nvidia Shadowplay, which is a great bit of software for screen capturing etc.

Hope that helps.

I don't know anything about upgrading computers but is it possible to make upgrades of these sort to a laptop, a Lenovo Think Pad in particular, or are these upgrades only possible for desktop computers?

Upgrading laptops is generally much more difficult and restrictive. Although it's not impossible. In my opinion you're much better off spending money and moving to desktop rather than spending a lot upgrading an existing laptop.

This is the card I've been looking at. Y'all think this is a good choice, or should I go a different path?

I think it's a fairly decent card, although I don't know how it compares to the Nvidia  GTX 1060 6gb card that Mackie recommended. I did check out the specs. It requires a PCI-Express slot and also needs a 6-pin power connector. If you plan to add the card yourself, be sure you know what you're doing.
