    Game recording alert?


    can i enable any kind of alert (like fraps has red dot in a corner... or whatever) when i am recording game? I am recording a lot, and i sometimes forget if i am recording right now, i dont know if my next win+alt+r will start or stop recording, dont know if i pushed the right keybind, or not....

    Thanks :)

    At least you can record something, I still can't get game dvr to work with asphalt 8 : airborne (app game) a real bummer.

    I do agree, it would be nice to see some kind of indication about what is going on with the recording.

    Game recording can be a pain. If the game allows it, run it in windows borderless mode. Doing that allows more control. If I remember right that wont work with your game tcman50

    The Game DVR will hide th red dot automatially. I'm afraid that there's no solutions to fix it.

    Yeah! This is a sort of bug that needs to be fixed by Microsoft, all we can do is to wait for the next update, or use other Game DVR alternatives such as OBS, Bandicam, Fraps or Free Online Screen Recorder.
