Cant Stream when using A3Launcher
I am trying to set up my stream with OBS but for some reason it wont work, I am getting a black screen but I am getting sound.
Now when I put in -NOLAUNCH in the steam and launch through steam it works fine. Although if I do that then it wont let me join the server I want as the mods are not detected for some off reason.
Do you guys have any idea how I can get it to work?

Weird problem, did you double check that it is A3 launcher?
Try loading up the game through Arma3 launcher joining the same server & check that you can stream.
It seems to be when launching Arma 3 though any launcher that it doesnt work. Which is why the fix -NOLAUNCHER works when put in steam. But naturally without the A3Launcher and all its glory, I cannot connect to the servers with mods on them, So I am a little confused.
I have also tried the sister launcher CCG [i think thats its name] and it just seems that OBS ignores the game because the launcher doesnt seem to want to be picked up.
I have tried turning off the "game compatibility hook" with the game capture. There is only one way that I can get it to capture the screen, and that is if i do a complete display capture of the game, however because of the way it captures the screen, it outputs at less than 1 fps haha! All the fun!

Having the same issue...
I did have an idea though, which I will try tonight:
Load up Arma3 through Steam. Make sure that OBS is picking up the feed.
Then Alt+Tab out and try to connect to the server I want via A3Launcher.
I will come back and report on my findings.
So Ive tested this quite a bit and it doesnt seem to stream at all with OBS, yet when I launched with xsplit running it picked it up without an issue. However I dont want to use xsplit as its a fremium product...and I really like OBS
Anyone got any ideas?
I fixed it...copied all of the mods into the arma3 folder :)
