July 2020 brought a series of changes from Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS: GO) developers. In a series of updates, Valve implemented “Trust Mode”, a feature that prevents third-party software from interacting with the game. The mode is designed to combat cheaters on secure VAC servers and is enabled by default.
Unfortunately, CS: GO content creators found they couldn’t stream games through OBS with trust mode enabled. According to Valve, the decision not to whitelist specific programs like OBS was made because “benign applications are often a cheat vector that hijack them to cheat. CS: GO.“At the moment, there are two options for content creators looking to stream the game after Valve updates.
How to broadcast CSGO with trust mode enabled
As mentioned above, at the beginning, CS: GO starts in trusted mode. For those looking to broadcast with Trusted Mode, they will have to go straight to the source: OBS.
Step 1: Open OBS
Step 2: Locate your CS: GO scene and fountains
Step 3: Add a screenshot source by clicking on the “+” symbol in the font box. You can add a previously existing screenshot source or create a new one.
Step 4: Once you’ve added the screenshot source, click “OK.” A new window will appear, click “OK” once more. Now, OBS will capture whatever window or application is open on your desktop, including CS: GO.
Screenshot streaming allows users to stream with trust mode enabled. It should be noted that there are some downsides to using screenshot to cast CS: GO, including FPS drops and input lag. Read on to learn how to broadcast CS: GO via OBS without screenshot and use of startup options.
How to stream without screenshot in OBS
Next, we’ll go over how to stream CS: GO changing the game start options. If you’re a streamer looking to not change your scenes and sources, you’ve probably opted to disable trust mode entirely. This is a viable option, because either way Trust Mode does not separate trusted and untrusted queues and does not guarantee a lower trust factor. However, you will have to disable trust mode every time you start the game.
This can be quite annoying and you may even forget it from time to time. Fortunately, there is a quick fix that only takes a few seconds.
Step 1: Access CS: GOLaunch options by right click in the title in the Steam library and selecting “Properties”.
Step 2: After the “Properties” window appears, navigate to the launch options by selecting “Set launch options.” Write or copy and paste “-allow_third_party_software“ in the text box and click “OK.”
Add this force launch options command CS: GO to start in “Normal” (unreliable) mode, and allows OBS to capture the game using Game Capture. Remember, this means that the trust mode is disabled. However, there is no significant difference between the confidence and normal queues.
