Simple video game recording with a crosshair overlay, how to show it in recording?

So I want to make a simple video recording of a video game with an overlay. This overlay is a crosshair. It can be anything. The program simply projects any PNG ontop of any window. Is that game in windowed mode, is that icon ontop. It can be used as crosshair as you can see.

Now when I record a video, this crosshair isn't shown. Why is that and how to show it?

Sorry you received no quick response, there's effectively nobody here nowadays so this forum is pretty much an archive at this point.

I would recommend you to try out OBS Studio or Shadowplay, they are superior recording programmes with better support for recording things like overlays.
