Bungie has announced that Destiny 2 won’t be compatible with a lot of well known third-party monitoring programs. The dev team noted that it will resist attempts by third-party applications to insert code into the game client in order to prevent hackers from getting access to it. As such, programs like FRAPS, EVGA Precision and MSi Afterburner will not be supported.
To be honest we find it a bit bizarre that these framerate and statistics overlays are not supported in order to prevent hackers from getting access to the game. This will also make it a bit difficult to determine whether some scenes in Destiny 2 are not that well optimized on the PC.
Not only that, but Bungie is not supporting visual notification features, such as those provided by Discord or Mumble, as well as the Game Capture mode of applications such as OBS and XSplit.
In order to capture gameplay footage, PC gamers will have to use one of the following programs:
- To capture while playing in Exclusive Fullscreen:
- Hardware capture through methods such as Elgato, AVerMedia, or a dedicated streaming PC is supported.
- NVIDIA Shadowplay and AMD ReLive are supported.
- To capture while playing in Windowed Mode (including Borderless Fullscreen):
- OBS and XSplit Screen Capture mode is supported.
- OBS and XSplit Window Capture mode is supported.
Destiny 2 is coming to the PC on October 24th and its open beta phase will be launched on August 28th!
