Screen Recording with MSI Afterburner and RivaTunerStatisticsServer

Software which is (also) capable of DirectX 12 Recording seem to be found.
MSI Afterburner  (which includes RivaTunerStatisticsServer Ver. 6.5.1 ) is able to record DirectX 12 games (e.g. Battlefield 1)

Here is the evidence:

MSI Afterburner is available completely free of charge and can be used with graphics cards from all brands.

  • To Set Up Screen Recording in Afterburner go to Settings

  • Navigate to Video Capture and set a hotkey.

You can also display FPS, CPU, GPU, Temps etc. under „Monitoring“

Available here for Download: https://de.msi.com/page/afterburner

Struggle with the Nexus

Veröffentlicht am Schreibe einen KommentarVeröffentlicht in Tech

Some time ago i was a big fan of the Google Nexus Devices. I owned the Galaxy Nexus, Nexus S and LG Nexus 5. Great devices with a good price/quality ratio.

So 2013 I bought a Neuxs 7 (2013) from ASUS. 1 year I was very satisfied with it until it bricked after an android update:

I’ve posted a coment on productreviews.google.com https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/nexus/nPOYCumV-Yw

but i had warranty and i sent it back to ASUS for fixing it. I got it back with a fixed Mainboard-Chip. OK i thought and moved on… 1 year later the display bricked. I bought a new display at amazon and fixed the issue:

After fixing it I was lucky and calm, i enjoyed the spirit of a  self-repair-session.

I bought a new case/bumper for the Nexus so that this issue will never happen again. A cool case at amazon…. nevermind. I thought it will be safe… but i forgot the enemy within ….

I enjoyed the tablet, planned to implement it in the car for a cool navigation solution… Then again a new system update popped up ….. and the bootloop happened again.. F*cking update-greed. I spent several hours to fix  it (recreated partitions, installed several images but the internal memory seem to be unaccessible). A Nexus Deja Vu… but now warranty is GONE….

So my conclusion. Nexus Devices were cool… then. As the prices rises, and the quality decrease… better look for alternatives.

Eyebolts FTW!

Veröffentlicht am Schreibe einen KommentarVeröffentlicht in Uncategorized

Several years ago I decided to buy a big couch.  As they are expensive  (> 1000 €) I checked out several couches from several furniture houses.  Finally i bought this one and i liked it. The price was about 900 €.

Afterwards i understood why picking a light color is not a good idea…

But what i did not understand is why the fuck choosing plastic for fixing the steel springs(forks/nibs)?

The logic consequence of this EPIC design error was that nearly all of the plastic fixations broke and the couch began to hang…

So i decided to make it better, i bought eyebolts made of steel and replaced the broken plastic. A wood drill was necessary (just drilled a small hole, so that I was able to screw the eyebolts)

I still have to find out the producers name and mail this story to them. I just want to know how many money they think they saved using plastic crap.
