    Sorry if this has been aswered before. Atleast inthread search turned up nothing.
    Is there a plan to add pre-recording (also known as loop recording)?

    About CPU monitoring, I would like to monitor a general value of the CPU temp, like when we check it in the BIOS or hardware monitor (I believe it is the IHS Temp) instead of monitoring cores or threads. Its kind of annoying to see 8 CPU Temps in the overlay and not knowing which one to choose in case I want only one to be displayed

    No. Unlike Intel who provide QuickSync SDK freely for any developer NVIDIA require developer to purchase some sort of license key from them to be able to use NVENC. So bye bye NV.

    I'm sure you've looked into it, but I could not find that anywhere in the license and, just for kicks, I downloaded the NVIDIA VIDEO CODEC SDK v 3.0 and didn't seem mention of a cost in the READMEs. The nvEncoder and the API seems to be included in the download. Do they provide and then charge before you use it?

    Google "NVENC license GUID", it will give you links to discussions in various developer related places. You can download SDK, you can use parts of if using CUDA based H264 encoding but you cannot build an application using NVENC hardware acceleration without having a license key that needs to be purchased from NVIDIA. In previous SDK versions application developer needed to explicitly specify his license GUID during video encoding application, now the license checking is moved to driver.

    Give a read to something like this thread (starting from page 2):

    That is a royal shame.

    Thanks for explaining, Unwinder, and we can always hope they come to their senses. They'll sell more cards if more apps exist, I reckon.

    How about a combined graphs for GPU's and another for CPU's but using different color lines to differentiate which is which. seeing 2 gpu clocks, mem's, volts etc and 8 cpus and temps can get very confusing at times.

    Nextgen consoles are x64 so there will be more and more games with x64 executables. Battlefield 4 is the first, Watch_dogs will also have 64 bit and CoD: Ghosts too. I predict that more and more people will start to request 64bit support for the overlay.

    The x64 version of RTSS does not need to have all functionality available right away. There are other tools that can be used for recording.

    All we need right now is support for hardware monitoring OSD, it is extremely useful, as is the framerate limiter.
    Pretty much every game will now have an x64 executable, and I cannot imagine not being able to use the OSD.

    No FPS issue when running games from secondary hard drive

    Not sure if this is a bug or it just doesn't work but If I play a game that is installed on a secondary hard drive Afterburner will not show the FPS. Every thing else works fine. If the game is installed on the primary drive it works fine. I have tried installing the afterburner on my secondary drive and running it from there and it does not work that way ether.

    Implement Push-To-Talk key like in every other application, instead of Push-To-Talk hotkey

    You can see this is the first post from him, so you know, they don't like to use search function....
