My english is crap.
Almost half-year ago, I made a post here talking about Plays.tv and how many bugs it had. Now i'm here once again and this shit application keeps tilting me.
- Sometimes plays.tv crashes with no reason. U can see the app in the toolbar. U proceed to start a game and then when u open the app to watch ur awesome/shitty plays the app is not even running. U have to close it with the task manager, open the app once again and, SURPRISE, ur games are not even recorded. This had happen to me like one million of times.
- There's some games that plays.tv doesnt want to record for no reason. These times the app is running tho. Happens like 1/5 times.
- And there's some times that a recorded game doesnt have kill/death/assist points, and u have to find the play u did byurself. 1/7 times.
- The client is still laggy and clunky as fuck.
Extra: It would be nice if u guys add a fast backward and a slow motion button. But first of all fix ur crap BUGS.
(please dont try to answer this post with some tips to fix this problems because i tried everything, my computer is pretty good and no one of that crap tips works, ty).
Hey Xegami, yep, I remember your other posts.
I did ask quite a few questions on it; although you didn't reply, it seems we went back and forth in a support ticket. You didn't reply back so I figured the issues were solved.
You didn't want any tips to fix the problem, and that's cool, but I'll let you know what I do seem to see 99% of the time with issues you're mentioning.
Plays.tv Crashing for No Reason - User Specific Issue
Some Games Plays.tv does not want to Record - Depends on the Game
No Pin Data - User Specific Issue (Typically caused by either League of Legends not detecting, or Riot API is down/can't be connected to).
Client is Laggy and Clunky - This could be based on PC performance, but feel free and share specific examples.
No, this program is just trash.
Look at your comment, "user issue, user issue" No it's not an "user issue".
When I don't have Plays open i get waaaay much fps and 0 blackscreens.
Well my comment can be taken a bit out of context since it was posted over a year ago, but I'll mention one major difference.
I mentioned "User Specific Issue", not "User Issue"; there is a difference.
We define a User Specific Issue to "a problem that is affecting that user based on certain criteria, but is not affecting all users". For example, League of Legends not recording is a "User Specific Issue", because we can test it and it works for us and we can see that other users are able to record without issues. However, Wolfenstein 2 not recording is not specific to a user, and does affect everyone who uses Plays.
You are getting lag (I assume) and black screen. Both of those issues are user-specific. We do not blame a user for having an issue, but there might be factors that contribute/cause the bug that might be in their control (other recording software running, out-of-date drivers, etc) or some that are out of their control (Specific Hardware, Windows Version, etc).
If you'd like us to actually try and help you, I'd recommend making a ticket so we can investigate your problems. Black Screen problems are usually indicative of the game and the Plays encoder on different GPUs. Lag is very dependent on your hardware, and having more detailed information (how much of an FPS loss, which games, etc) is necessary for us to know whether the drop in performance is expected or too much.
