This is a short guide with 2 methods of disabling background recording and nvidia’s instant replay, which have a noticeably bad effect on the game’s performance. Keep in mind you won’t be able to record when these are disabled.
Halo Infinite How to Increase Performance
Method 1 (Nvidia Shadowplay Desktop Capture)
- Open Shadowplay (by default this is Alt + Z). Click instant replay and turn it off so we can change the settings
- Open the settings with the cog on the right.
- Scroll down and click on the “Privacy control” tab.
- Disable “desktop capture”. This prevents you from using instant replay on your normal desktop (and Halo currently) but it should work with other games. I recommend OBS or Bandicam if you want to record Halo before this is fixed.
Method 2 (Xbox Game Bar)
- Press Win + G to open the Xbox Game Bar. If you see this circular arrow, then background recording is enabled.
- Open the Settings menu by clicking this cog.
- Open the “Capturing” section near the bottom.
- Uncheck the box next to “Record in the background while I’m playing a game”. The circular arrow from before should also be crossed out now.
