Best way to record games?

I'm hoping to record some vassal games (and the discord chat alongside them), any suggestions on the best app to use?

OBS Streamlabs if you want something "easy" to set up.

OBS Studio if you want something a bit more complicate to set up (still, a bunch of tutorials online) but more customizable/powerfull.

However, IMHO the most important is to record only the Vassal window + the cards windows and have the map big enough in Vassal and perfectly centered.

Which screen size and resolution are you using?

ive done a fair few videos here with obs and it takes a little bit of work but you can get the map, and the cards on the screen, though do have to play fairly zoomed out 


see here for some of my videos 

Just started messing with OBS and honestly it's really easy to use imo. Then again I come from a technical background.

I used OBS for my last game, and had two major problems:

  • Whenever I swapped to another window within vassal (like the cards), it stretched to take up the entire video.
  • I have ADHD, and I constantly fidget the screen to look around the map.

The first problem is one I'd like to fix. The second one I'll just work on myself xD Maybe I can find a way to make vassal full screen but still big enough to see everything.
