Critical 14.2% Rendering Lag
Your GPU is maxed out and OBS can't render scenes fast enough. Running a game without vertical sync or a frame rate limiter will frequently cause performance issues with OBS because your GPU will be maxed out. OBS requires a little GPU to render your scene.

Enable Vsync or set a reasonable frame rate limit that your GPU can handle without hitting 100% usage.

If that's not enough you may also need to turn down some of the video quality options in the game. If you are experiencing issues in general while using OBS, your GPU may be overloaded for the settings you are trying to use.

Please check our guide for ideas why this may be happening, and steps you can take to correct it: GPU Overload Issues.
Warning Old Version (27.2.4)
You are running an old version of OBS Studio (27.2.4). Please update to version 29.1.3 by going to Help -> Check for updates in OBS or by downloading the latest installer from the downloads page and running it.
Warning Windows 10 21H2 (EOL)
You are running Windows 10 21H2, which has not been supported by Microsoft since June 2023. We recommend updating to the latest Windows release to ensure continued security, functionality, and compatibility.
Warning Not Admin
OBS is not running as Administrator. Because of this, OBS will not be able to Game Capture certain games, and it will not be able to request a higher GPU priority for itself -- which is the likely cause of the render lag you are currently experincing. Run OBS as Administrator to help alleviate this problem.
Warning 14.7% GPU Encoder Overload
The encoder is skipping frames because of GPU overload. Read about troubleshooting tips in our GPU Overload Guide.
Warning Multiple Game Capture
Multiple Game Capture sources are usually not needed, and can sometimes interfere with each other. You can use the same Game Capture for all your games! If you change games often, try out the hotkey mode, which lets you press a key to select your active game. If you play games in fullscreen, use 'Capture any fullscreen application' mode.
