The new hotness coming from Valve has had many users excited as to the possibility of finally hopping into competitive matchmaking servers and experiencing a fair fight against other players that simply enjoy the title. \n \nTop laughs were had, as users queued into matchmaking today and found that the biggest application blocked from CS:GO wasn't cheats; it was the perennial favorite Open Broadcasting Software, better known colloquially as OBS. \n \nWhich is a shame; OBS is a big favorite to use in the streaming world with its transparent development, accredited to it being open-source, and Counter-Strike is similarly a favorite title for many users to stream on a daily basis. \n \nYet OBS has reached out multiple times, and can't seem to get their drivers signed by Valve to allow for interaction with the CS:GO executable; despite a workaround being developed in the first hour that the anti-cheat layer was added, it admittedly seems a bit unnecessary to need to use workarounds for transparent software used to stream the title. \n \nMeanwhile, many cheaters are still infecting the platform. \n \nIt's a frustrating case, but the Trusted Mode which recently launched was never meant to be a fully-formed anti-cheat that would bring the technology to the next level. Instead, it's an additional layer that has been added to make cheating a bit more difficult in the title. \n \nhttps:\/\/twitter.com\/WizardCM\/status\/1281018545824886784 \n \nThis isn't the only game to suffer from bots and scripts coming from Valve, either: Team Fortress 2 has been an unfortunate breeding ground for many bad actors to try their scripts out while servers crashed again and again: an issue that took Valve over a month to collaborate on and finally solve for the remaining TF2 population. \n \nGranted, this is the first official roll-out of the security layer, and it's likely that there were going to be a couple of issues from various sources; it's unfortunate that OBS is affected, but some applications were bound to be. \n \nCommunity Moderator for OBS, Matt Gajownik, stated on Twitter that OBS is readily recognized by most standard anti-cheats, and Valve has yet to reach out regarding the proverbial whitelist that would allow OBS to run in tandem with Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. \n \nIf you're suffering from making OBS work with CS:GO, you can run OBS in a window capture mode and place CS:GO in a borderless windowed mode, which will allow you to stream until all of this is sorted out. \n \nTo the credit of the CS:GO community, many are taking this well in stride, with many asking for even more invasive anti-cheats to be rolled out by Valve in the near future to help keep the matches competitive.
