Game crashing when using recording software

Issue Description:
Game crashes when screen recording software “Bandicam” is active. Tried 4-5 times to launch, tried restart, still crashed. Finally after final crash, just stopped “Bandicam” and game launched without problems and played without issues.

Some time ago I recorded gameplay with this software.

Steps to Reproduce:
Turn on Bandicam. Open Darktide from steam. Click “Play”. Crash.

Alternative: Open darktide from steam. Click “Play”. Game starts loading. Turn on Bandicam. Crash.

Mission Name (If Applicable):
Does not matter.

This is an unfortunate side effect of anything that hooks in to the Darktide client, and not something we can resolve. I don’t have any experience with Bandicam, so perhaps somebody else can chime in, but is there a way to disable hooking whilst still being able to record?
