    The new Shadowplay isn't optimized to properly record Rise of Agon. The issue comes with the Geforce Experience update to version 3.0. It introduces issues and the GUI is just plain worse. You have to revert back to the old version and then prevent it from updating itself. To do so:

    1) Uninstall your current version of Geforce Experience (if it's the updated version)
    2) Download Geforce Experience 2.11.4.0: http://www.filehorse.com/download-nvidia-geforce-experience/26526/
    (Old URL here, no longer works)
    3) Once installed, launch it. It may tell you there is an update available. Close out of the program.
    4) Delete the Update folder and it will no longer prompt you to update. Can be found here: C:\ProgramData\NVIDIA Corporation\GeForce Experience\Update

    And that should do it.

    Additional helpful video (add --shadowplay in Properties > File Path) to launch Shadowplay directly)

    Mostly unrelated but shadowplay wasn't working for me on anything for the longest time and I couldn't figure out why. The solution was that it only works on Windows Aero themes and I had something else. So many hours spent troubleshooting something so stupid.

    Hmm, that's odd. Did you do a complete reinstall? Try putting your game in Full Screen mode instead of just Full Screen windowed.

    I haven't had any issues so far. Just make sure you frequently check for driver updates.

    Worst comes to worst, you can always re-install the new version if you change your mind.

    Yes. You will have to enable windows aero and record desktop though because GFE won't recognize the DF:ROA window
