screen tearing in-game but only when obs is open (minecraft)


New Member
basically, whenever I'm using obs I have to make sure to minimize before opening Minecraft java edition otherwise, the 2 programs will interfere with each other causing mouse lag and screen tearing. this is also probably because I only have one monitor. if I had 2 I could put each program on separate screens. the problem is that the trick of minimizing obs before recording in full-screen Minecraft stopped working a few days ago resulting in constant mouse lag and screen tearing. after doing my best to troubleshoot the problem (I couldn't find anything online) I ended up going through the general settings of obs and finding an option to "minimize obs to the system tray" which forces it to not interfere and that's good. thank God. but I'm wondering if anyone knows a simpler option or maybe if there is a bigger problem going on here. and if anyone else is having the same problem maybe turning on the system tray option like I did can help. I hope. thanks, bruh.
