  1. I would love to enter this contest. Too bad I can’t, because AMD Gaming Evolved is completely broken and I can’t record or capture anything, even on my AMD hardware.

    1. Please enter a support ticket if you haven’t already. You can also earn entries by liking videos and tweeting them…


    2. Weird.. I’d be the first to jump on the “it’s broken” train, but it’s actually working for me.

    3. it doesn’t work for me also because i don’t have the correct card capable to record

    4. Yeah, nothing’s working on my machine, also: but I suppose I should first learn how to turn it all on to get it working in the first place. Any real suggestions, please. Just an arrow pointing the correct path for me to learn how to use this supposed high-end machine would be nice… pretty please?

    5. mines been fine for months. now all of a sudden “disabled”. im so done with team red when i gather some decent coin

    6. I have the same issue. It says video capture is not available for your hardware at the moment. Its annoying because id love to record!

    7. Thanks for the link. I gave it a try, but sadly both game capture and replay are still disabled on my system.

    1. It must be recorder with Rapture and Plays.tv… so yeah only PC :3

    2. 2 things: 1) You can upload videos from anything through the Plays.tv client as it lets you add external folders. Unfortunately, the current Raptr version doesn’t allow for that. 2) You can enter this event by liking and sharing too

  2. I Have a Radeon HD 6970 2GB GDDR5 from Visiontek running the 14.12 Driver (Most Current according to AMD Gaming Evolved) with a AMD FX 4100 @ 4.8GHz and it shows that “Video Capture isn’t Available for my System at this time”

  3. I mean not to be a d*ck or anything but an R7 260x isn’t exactly breaking the bank. Especially since you’re “Partnering” with Saphire. Would have expected at least an R9 270X. The SSD is nice but still you know, 120GB? that costs practically nothing now a days. Sorry to be a negative Nancy but this stinks of cheap marketing.

    1. That is another issue as Roy from AMD pointed out the other day, you can thank Nvidia for that and the developer. They chose to build the game on Nvidia Gameworks and use PhysX to run the simulations. In this game there is no way to disable Physx for AMD cards which is really a bad way to do things as it’s all off loaded to the CPU.

      AMD doesn’t have access to the source code of gameworks so they can’t build a fix for it so easily. When AMD did have something working NVidia and the developer changed it again and AMD where blind again against the odds.

      We as gamers and developers should scold them for doing these practices. Gimping the competition so you get more sales. Even Kepler cards to a huge hit by Nvidia new Gameworks which will force people to upgrade if they really want great performance on Project Cards. This is what AMD being open has been complaining about for some time that Nvidia has a business model that is totally unfair and counterproductive for the gaming industry.

      Now AMD gets a bad name when really it should be Nvidia but they are betting not many people will know this and just see the benchmarks and buy their GPU’s. When they have a new generation and they will do it to their own customers.

  4. Too bad I can’t enter because I’m under 18, no point though, my PC has a GTX 760 already, which annihilates the R7 260X; an entry level card, takes DDR2 RAM so I can’t use the RAM, and honestly it’s not worth it for the SSD I can get a 240GB SSD for like $115. I also record with GeForce Experience, which is probably cheating.

    1. You can import videos from Shadowplay with the Plays.tv client, so not cheating.

    2. But I’m still under 18 and the prizes are worthless to me because my graphics card is far superior, the RAM is incompatible, and the SSD is only worth like $115 CAD.

    3. Sorry to hear that. I’m sure we’ll still have events running once you are 18.

    4. Ha and by then, the prize will be an R9 280x, 16GB of DDR3, and a 480GB SSD. (The joke being that in 3 years they’ll be outdated and not that great)

  5. I’d love to get into this competition, but of a sudden the program stopped working and says no addtional this to my system, HOW? if I ever used to record. Suck contest.

  6. So… I can win a new video card if I post a video, but I can’t make a video unless I get a new video card. Does that make any sense?

  7. Why only one of my video’s is showed in the #vidoftheday group. I’ve posted few video’s, all hashtaged with #vidoftheday, but I checked in the group I saw only 1 of them ? How’s that come ?

    1. I did. I saw them now, sorry for disturbing you. No idea why I didn’t find them out at first ;). Thanks for fast replay ! Have a great night/day.

  8. aight the pop up after my game idea was bad…. ppl dont like pop ups ever… put this stuff in a msg box
