Hi,
I know it's an old topic, but I've always some trouble with vmix trying to capture a game running on the same pc.
I've this problem with multiple games ( not all, but several including DCS and Star Citizen )
I try to use the WindowsGraphicsCapture method as well as the other, but nothing changes, I can only see the desktop, also trying using capture the whole screen method, when alt-tab on games, I continue to see only the desktop underneath.

My system is Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 2019 ( Build 1809 ), with an RTX2080Ti and latest studio driver

This is a weird issue. Have you tried using a different program? Maybe there is an issue related to that and it has a bug. I get it that is so annoying, especially when you need it the most. I am playing World of Warcraft from time to time, and sometimes I am recording my playthrough. One time, I've found a mythic 15 carry and I was so excited, but the recording program crashed and I have no footage left of finding it. It simply happens and there isn't much that you can do about it. You have to keep trying again

Sometimes I am playing Toca Life World Apk and sometimes I am recording my game but the recording program crashes and I have no more footage to find it.
