I’m really pulling my hair here trying to get this working so I’d really appreciate it if someone more experienced here could chip in.
I’m trying to record a playthrough of the game Hotline Miami (Good Old Games version) with OBS Studio, using NVENC encoding. Now, when I go to mhwd (I’m using an Optimus laptop Intel HD 630 + GTX 1050m) the three hybrid graphics options that it gives me are:
Now, I’m experiencing performance drops when running the game with prime-run, tested with both of the available prime drivers. Using bumblebee’s primusrun the game runs perfectly. Setting all of this up took quite a bit of effort, however I am now facing another (hopefully) final roadblock - when trying to record with OBS while running bumblebee it gives me the following error:
[h264_nvenc @ 0x56426a7c8840] Driver does not support the required nvenc API version. Required: 11.1 Found: 8.1
[h264_nvenc @ 0x56426a7c8840] The minimum required Nvidia driver for nvenc is 470.57.02 or newer
So my question is, is there a way to have a NVIDIA bumblebee 470.xx driver or is there another way I can solve this?
