    I've always wanted to try one of these, sniper games with over-the-top Mortal Kombat-style X-ray kills. Getting it free in Xbox Game Pass was nice.

    I completed mission 1/8. This is fun, you play on a open large map, and perform satisfying stealth kills on stupid german guards. The main objective in the first mission was to 'kill Schmidt'. I don't know how to feel about that. ;)

    The recording of the first level was completely broken. I checked the logs in AppData/Roaming/obs-studio/logs:

    I guess a 8 Mbit/s bit rate was too much. I used 4 Mbit/s with my previous ISP, I should try 6-7 instead of 8.

    And the local recording is also busted, which I guess makes sense, because I enabled 'Same as stream' recording quality, which makes it only encode the video once. Maybe I should experiment with recording and streaming with different quality. Or maybe just record locally in high quality and then upload. It's not like I'm interacting with people much while I'm playing anyway.
