The slowdown happens even if running OBS on different GPU

None of our streamers seems to have this issue. You can try if the "Use Hardware Cursors" setting helps here.

Do you happen to run the game on a laptop with an Nvidia graphics card? I do, and for me OBS gives me a permanent blackscreen when showing OpenRA - unless I run it in windowed mode (I just set it to 1919x1079 instead of 1920x1080, the difference is barely noticeable). If that's the case, I dug deep into the Nvidia forums and it seems to be a consistent issue with OBS on laptops, and I have not found a proper workaround to this very day despite streaming OpenRA for over 3 years. Try running it in windowed mode; if that doesn't fix it, it's probably something else.

Yeah, btw I also run OpenRA in windowed mode, because I have 2 screens and switching between them when in Fullscreen has some implications; as far as I remember OpenRA doesn't have borderless which would have been ideal for this.

i thought fullscreen was borderless? and full screen legacy was the old full screen?

This is correct.
