Cyberpunk and things

 So recently, Cyberpunk 2077 released and I planned on making multiple videos on the game and slot those in between my normal schedule so there would be a let's play video every day. Logistically, I think it could have worked out, but due to the nature of the game, I don't think I can.

The game is fun and interesting, but there are a few bugs / optimization issues - though I don't know if the latter is due to my card or the game (I currently use a 2060).

Playing it on my own, I can run the game just fine on high to ultra settings. However, I can't get a steady 60fps when OBS is running, even when I change the settings to low. No idea why, even when OBS isn't recording or anything. Just when it's running, the game drops in framerate for me.

There is also a weird bug with mirrors in the game. Normally they work fine and do what mirrors do. However when I try to record my gameplay footage, the recorded version bugs out and shows both my viewpoint and the viewpoint from the mirror, with the latter flickering. The odd part about this, is that on the monitor with the actual gameplay, it looks fine - it doesn't show the flickering or the second viewpoint that OBS has for some reason.

With that said, I'll probably go back to my normal schedule of uploading every other day. At least until they release an optimization patch so the game won't freak out when OBS is running, or if by chance I upgrade to a 30xx card. Don't know which will come first since I basically upgraded my PC not too long ago and don't really want to do that again in such a short timeframe.
