*DISCLAIMER!* I’ve noticed a lot of confusion in the chat about ‘mostly’ one thing that goes over this tutorial.
There’s no way of running this chat overlay when the game’s full screen! There’s only two ways! Either by playing the game on ‘Windowed’ mode and/or with Dual monitors!
There purpose of the ‘transparent chat overlay’ is for recordings/archives/viewers, not for your personal use! It’s a way to record the chat log!
My entire recording of the tutorial is a ‘screen region’ of my entire desktop through Xsplit’s ‘local recording’….what you see in the recording is what you in the Xsplit’s preview!
Also, the version of ‘Dark Souls’ I’m playing is on the ‘PS3’ through a ‘capture device’…the reason why it appeared to be full screen with the ‘chat overlay’ is because I made it so in one of my Xsplit’s scene/tabs/presentation!
I hope everyone with the same issue and/or conundrum of understanding what’s truly happening in tutorial understand through reading this small…yet sort of long…disclaimer!
I have explained many times to others individually the same thing in the comments below, so I figured I just put an overall explanation of how I’m recording this.
– Update –
Now with Xsplit’s 2.0 & UI overhaul update, you’re no longer needed to set ‘Screen region’ under ‘Legacy mode’ as it no longer requires it, Screen Region has been renamed to ‘Screen Capture’…and there’s now an ‘Exclusive Window capture’ option that happens to ignore what is overlaying over the capture window and still capture, highly recommend using that AWESOME & HELPFUL feature!
Steps are very much ‘inherently’ the same even with the new changes, minus the ‘Legacy mode’ (no longer needed) step.
