I am trying to record Sonic Adventure 2 for a speedrun and the game runs very smoothly by itself with no problem. As soon as i open OBS not even start streaming or recording the game begins to drop frames and then crashes. I have no problems with other games I've tested about 30 other games and this is the only one that crashes.

Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700HQ CPU @ 2.60GHz, 2592 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)
16GB RAM
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M

is it the game or am I an idiot that knows nothing about computers and my computer just cant handle it?
I'd attach a recording but the game doesn't last that long

Step 1 is to update to current, and you're on a version with a broken "Check for updates" function.
You need to download the current version's installer and install over your existing copy.
