OBS makes my game laggy as hell while Fraps runs smoothly. I have an i7 4700HQ, doesn't look like my processor is the problem.

Another problem with OBS is that it doesn't handle well the spreading of resolution. I play at 1280 x 720 at a 1920 x 1080 screen. What does OBS do? It captures the screen with black borders around it. What does it record when I set the resolution in OBS at 1280 x 720? It simply records only the most left part of the screen(so only a part of the screen).

Fixed that, but I still need to find how to lose the FPS drops.

Edit2: Think I fixed it. FPS set to 60 and cpu preset to "veryfast". Will comment later on how it runs after some more testing.

Tried recording with 30 fps? And what's your GPU?

GTX 850M, and it actually runs smoother when I record at 60 FPS. :P

Yo segui los paso y el único problema fue que tenia activado el anticheat compatibility hook(bann x2)
Solo tengo caidas de FPS cuando vuelo cerca del area del respawn usando /dl

I followed the steps and the only problem was that I had anticheat activated compatibility hook(bann x2)
I only have FPS drops when I fly near the respawning area using /dl.

Please, ask your questions either in this topic or PM me and be more attentive: it has been mentioned in the main post.

   5. Go to "Settings -> Settings -> Broadcast Settings" and switch the mode to "File output only". Additionally specify your path to the output file along with its extension. I suggest using *.flv, and I will explain in the end why, but it's up to you. By the way, $T just means that your file name will be a timestamp of recording start second (format: year-month-day-hourminute-second).

A paltry man and poor of mind
At all things ever mocks;
For never he knows, what he ought to know,
That he is not free from faults.

I don't know why earlier the recordings used to be well and fine with good quality but now they are not good
