    So this has been raised as an issue previously, but I figure now is a good time to bring them up again. Clockwork Empires works inconsistently with software intended for streaming gameplay. Specific problems I've encountered:

    Attempting to stream through NVidia's GeForce Experience (aka Shadowplay):

    NVidia GeForce Experience

    1) Running in any kind of fullscreen mode, GeForce Experience doesn't recognize that a game is running, and will not capture or stream.
    2) Running Clockwork Empires in a windowed mode works, but only if you also configure GeForce to broadcast your 'desktop', i.e it's still not recognizing that a game is running.
    3) By extention, the resolution options for CE are a bit wonky; I can select my max native resolution + 'fullscreen' and the game will play at that size, but selecting the same resolution without 'fullscreen' results in the game defaulting down to the next highest resolution in a window (i.e. no fullscreen borderless)

    Open Broadcast Software (OBS)

    1) Can reliably capture a full-screen session, but only for recording purposes; attempting to broadcast said stream will result in Clockwork Empires crashing, regrettably.

    Does this mean you're stream is cancelled today?:(

    No, everything is going ahead as usual, but I'll be playing in a big window instead of fullscreen. :)
