Thanks for the defender tip, that's a good catch !
As for Shadowplay, yes I know. But ... see ... If I start recording OBS it's because I just know something good is going to happen.
Most of the time, I don't plan my stupid mistakes. And if I start OBS at the blink of an eye, it's already too late. While with Shadowplay I can still record everything that happened for the past 5 minutes.
So I could start OBS while starting Elite, right ? But sometimes I'm in the dock I walk afk and make some food, pester the neighbors, feed the pig, paint the house and launch my vessel. The one hour idling is recorded then also. And yes... I'm a quick painter.
