I'm using HWiNFO64 and MSIAfterburner to monitor games
Can I use this utility to monitor OSD in MPC-HC..??
I need to know if hardware acceleration is kicking in MPC-HC when I play movies
Also it is possible to keep changes in "show graph" windows...??
I need to set up each one of then every-time I open HWiNFO
EX: color. max, etc.
I'm not sure if MSI Afterburner can display OSD in MPC-HC. Try and you'll see, or ask the question in MSI forums.
If it doesn't you can enable logging in HWiNFO and after the session check the log file.
If you leave the graphs open and close HWiNFO, their properties will be kept. Also make sure to use the latest build of HWiNFO which improves this. Color for each graph can be specified via Configure - it's the same color which is used to display tray icons and this value is saved.

OK something bizarre here
First... as you know I was using v4.10-1820 (.exe x64) I uninstalled it before to use the beta version v4.11-1844 (.zip)
I didn't need to setup this beta version (surprise) it took somewhere the remands of the v4.10-1820 (.exe) uninstalled version, same for this new beta version (1845.zip) The "GPU utilization" ONLY doesn't work in both of then "yes under heavy load"
Then I installed again the v4.10-1820 (.exe) doesn't need set up... and now it doesn't work (GPU Utilization) either....
Can you please attach a Debug File of the latest Beta (1845) under load, so I can check that?
Also, there's no need to install the portable/beta builds. They work straight after unpacking and don't use any remands of previous versions.
I have checked all data and HWiNFO seems to report all correct based on the data it receives either from the GPU or from its driver.
Could you try to upgrade the GPU driver to the latest Catalyst version to see if that maybe changes something?
Thanks for the feedback. Just let me know if you find any other issues...
You know... I'm using HWiNFO64 and MSI On-Screen Display server v4.5.0 ONLY for my monitoring needs
I don't see the need to install the complete version of MSIafterburner however I miss the FPS monitor GRAPH
There is any way to implement this Graph in HWiNFO from the "own statistics" function of the MSI On-Screen Display server...??
I mean... we get HWiNFO to the OSD/Statistics Server support then from OSD/Statistics Server to HWiNFO graph for the FPS monitoring needs
I'm afraid, I don't know of any way how to read the FPS counter from OSD and there are currently no plans to implement such counter on my own in HWiNFO.
There aren't s a lot of utility's able to monitor CPU"s and GPU's a the same time
If HWiNFO would be able to monitor (Graph) FPS too il will be a complete set of monitor utility for a lot people.
Maybe sometime in the future, but currently I don't have the knowledge how to do that. Such feature is quite different from the HWiNFO scope anyway...
I think it might be possible to pull FPS values from FRAPS and display them. Would such a feature be useful?
