Here is a question that I am sure was answered before but

If you have been following the UCFL* Redux Journal and watched any of the videos posted, you might be aware that I am having sound quality issues. I am using the built in Game DVR of windows 10 to record the games. Framerate is set at 30 FPS and the audio is set at 128Kbps (the recommended). I always check the videos before uploading and sometimes there are no issues, sometimes there are (i usually chalk that up to my computer being busy during the play back, but i could be wrong). However, when the vids are uploaded to youtube, almost all (95%) of them have choppy audio and some times stuttering video.

So I was wondering what the rest of you use when you up load videos. Any help would be appreciated

I'm having issues with my game now. I just upgraded to the latest mods for the 2019 season. Now when I try to start the game with Calhoupe's script I can't get past the create profile screen after first hitting Start. And if I just use the mainapp.exe without the script it starts and I can play, but it won't save. It just says it's encountered an error. Any ideas?

It could be the recent windows 10 update to the .net framework packages for 3.5-4.8 via windows update. Try rolling back the update or system restore if it works. Then most likely it was the update. If not the other option is to reinstall direct X and .net frameworks to possibly fix the issue. If this does not work then I am out of solutions. Best of luck! -U77

It quite possibly be due to the update. I'll try your suggestions and get back to you with results. It may help someone else. Thank you for the reply.

Alternatively, you could try removing and re-downloading the scripts. That would be an easier first step than a restore, though a restore could definitely be helpful if that doesn't work. Also, you may want to try running the scripts as administrator if you aren't already. I don't know if that will help, but sometimes that can be a weird Windows "miracle fix."
