I bought the wrong camo (weapon instead of armor) not only did they swap it to the armor version, my weapons still have the weapon camo on them, I somehow got the beta title/decals (which I shouldn't have) and a new mask plus 250 SC back?!

Also if you want a free streaming: http://www.pcgamer.com/2012/12/04/how-t ... 0&ns_fee=0

I've come to terms with streaming. I don't have a i5 or i7 and my poor quad core AMD just doesn't cut it. I've tried everything but it's just such a resource hog that I'm giving up (until I get my hands on a i7).

You need to turn your resolution and framerate etc down, tried that?

Everything. When games use 70 to 95% over 4 cores there ain't much left for transcoding ;)

The i7's have 8 threads over 4 cores and the newer ones 12 over 6 cores so they can handles so much more.

If I can stream on a low end i3 laptop with HD3000 graphics and 4GB 1333mhz RAM and a HDD (not SSD) at high settings, I'm sure you can :P

Madness. I haven't seen a reason to sink REAL money into the game yet.. This might change once the game is running smoother but at the moment I don't see why I should.

Trust me when I say I've tried everything in the toolbox. Xsplit, Flash Media Encoder, Open Broadcaster. Low, high resolutions, bitrates, quality settings.
I've a AMD Phenom @ 3,2Ghz at the moment with 8GB DDR3 1600Mhz on Windows 7 with a GTX570 graphics card. But it all falls on the CPU. The CPU needs to transcode video and for doing so it uses up about 30 to 50% of my CPU's processing power leaving 50% or less for games.
The game then doesn't have enough processing power and starts running choppy.

The I series intel processors are just that much more reliable due to superior processing power even at the same speeds. Don't get me wrong I'm no fanboy as I've used AMD for years now but the fact is people with i5's and i7's can stream 720p or 1080p without breaking a sweat.

Beep boop, end of explanation :cheers:

My friend streams on High/Ultra with his A10-5800K, 16GB 2133MHZ RAM and GTX 650 Performance Edition, AMD still has some hope. I was quite impressed with that series tbh, which is what I built as a low end system and he bought off me, runs everything fine :D

Also when servers are up catch us on Mumble usually around 6PM GMT onwards and we can throw an invite ^^
