  1. Hi guys, This year was my first Extra Life and it was an incredible experience. Once the stream was over, I decided I would make some edits and release the stream overlay code I had wrote for keeping track of donations and donors. Everything is up now over at my Github page and it is all free to use under the MIT license. All of the information on how to setup the overlay is on the Github link but at the very least, you will need Node.js and NodeCG in order to run it. From there, it is only some very simple edits to the HTML (and two JS files) to get going. Feel free to mess around and change whatever you like, all I ask is that you link back to the original Github project if you use it. See the stream in action here:
  2. Hey y'all, So I was wondering if anyone uses the Extra Life notification options in Streampro for alerts a goal progress. It has stopped working for me and was wondering if anyone else is having issues with it. I am planning on doing a marathon stream and need something to track goal progress and notify everyone when someone donates. Streampro's Extra Life integration was great and I really hope it either get fixed, or I can learn why it's not working for me. Also if anyone has any other ways to get EL alerts and whatnot on my stream, I would love suggestions! I couldn't find any other options besides Streampro. Thanks!
  3. I've been asked to post my 4:3 gaming layout here, for others who might play retro games (or games in small windows) to have an overlay that fits their game! As leader of Team 4:3 (that I'd like to start expanding and promoting soon), I probably shoulda done this already. BUT HERE IT IS NOW! There isn't any official overlay for 4:3 resolutions (nevermind Game Boy games that are 10:9. 10:9!), so I took one of the overlays with no camera box, just the 16:9 panel cut out, and simply copy and pasted the thing blue border around the overlay as needed to create my own inlay panels. The way I use this particular set-up is: Top-Left: I cut and resized the CMN Infographic and use the scrolling image feature in OBS to rotate through CMN facts here. (Alternative: Put your team, hospital, personal logo, game title, donation tracker or goal progress here!) Middle-Left: I do a lot of speedrunning, so my timer and splits are usually here. The chat log can also go here. It's a big panel to have room for splits, which not everyone needs, but it's hard to get rid of the white space here for reasons I'll outline below. Bottom-Left: The camera. Note that the way the layout is now, this block is neither 4:3 nor 16:9, but my face doesn't take up the whole camera so I crop the camera feed to fit. It could certainly be adjusted to fit 4:3 or 16:9, though! Right: Play area I would be willing to rearrange the lines if someone wanted a different set-up but doesn't have the know-how or the software to do it themselves. What isn't as easy to do is to 'explode' the pieces out so they aren't side-by-side. I might have another go and modifying one of the 'minimalist' layouts, but the background with the controllers and dice on it it very hard to manipulate since any ugly copy-pasting to repeat the background will be much more noticable and I don't have the Photoshop chops to work around that. I'm working in Fireworks and that's a dead program. What I really need is a layout with the 'header' and 'footer' but no other panels cut out -- then you could customize it however ya want and still make it match the color scheme. There's an upload limit, but if I find a good place to upload the original Fireworks file that would have layers and modifiable outlines, I'll post that too.
