    Hi,

    I'am the developer of CapFrameX, a new capture and analysis tool like OCAT or FrameView: https://github.com/DevTechProfile/CapFrameX

    I would like to use RTSS to create a custom OSD. What I want is to send status information to RTSS to visualize them. The first step could be to show a simple icon on the display.

    I need a developer guide/documentation to do so. A few code examples would be very helpful.

    Can you help me?

    Greets, ZeroStrat

    Hey ZeroStrat, welcome - I actually use your software. An SDK can be found inside the RT installation directory.

    Hi!

    Yeah, I've already seen "suspicious" graphics here on guru3d. ^^ I hope you like it. And thanks for the tip with the SKD. I never noticed that, sorry. Ok, I checked the examples an they are very helpful I think. But one thing leaves questions unanswered. How can I display an icon/pic at a defined position?

    Greets, ZeroStrat.

    OSD hypertext doesn’t support custom image rendering.

    Embedded graphs rendering is demonstrated in open source sample code included in SDK.

    Is support of custom image rendering planned in the future?

    One another question. Could it cause problems if CapFrameX and Afterburner access RTSS at the same time?

    RTSS is designed to allow multiple clients to render text simultaneously. Apps like HwInfo/AIDA and MSI AB are safely rendering the text via RTSS at the same time for years.
    And no, I'm afraid cutom image rendering is not planned. It is completely useless thing for hardware monitoring purposes and at the same time it increases hypertext handling complexity drastically. So it doesn't worth the efforts from my POV.
