Streaming Tiberium Dawn


Recommended Posts


Is it possible to stream Tiberium Dawn with OBS? Just curious if anyone else has had success with setting up their scenes to capture this game correctly, because whenever I launch the game it changes the layout of my windows because the game is launching in a different resolution than my monitor.

If you have any other questions about OBS, let me know.



I tried screencap + not being in other windows when game is launching, and everything is working fine now. I decided to go with the 1024 resolution, since I think the game is too small on 1080p. But it's not ruining my resolution of the other screen anymore when I launch which is what I wanted. So thank you!


Also, I know that sometimes when people stream on CnCnet they have that little stream button at the top of the CnCNet window. Do you know if there a way I could get added as a CnC streamer? Thanks!

Copy these settings exactly.

4. Check "Stretch to custom resolution:"
5. Enter in 1920x1080

End result: Great mouse response, no lag while streaming, and clear visuals to both yourself and the end user on Twitch.

Hmm, shouldn't that be 480? Height adjustment is 5/6, so for a play resolution of 1920x1080 you would need a game resolution of 1920x900. Straight conversion of that to an in-game content width of 1024 (divide both by 1.875) gives 1024x480, not 1024x576.
