  1. Hey gamers, My son and I have started sharing our gaming experiences on YouTube in June 2016 and I have been using this as a way to provide family-friendly entertainment and to "gamify" important life lessons such as proper planning, internet etiquette, overcoming adversity, building confidence, etc. and so far, it's been an amazing adventure! The week after Christmas after a recording session, he came to me and said that he asked if we could give the money that we are making from the platform to the community, more specifically to help children that are fighting for their lives. What really touched me from his behavior was that for a 7-year old, thinking of giving back instead of asking for a new video game or something that he may be able to play with was incredible! Since he asked and one of our core family values is the importance of helping our peers by giving back, I have looked into what we could plan together for children. And I have found Extra-Life.org. After researching, looking at the videos that explained the history behind this beautiful movement and community, I knew that this was the one that we were going to do it for. More importantly, the ability to help a local foundation made it even more special! We have been planning this event for a few weeks now and I have found myself feeling so rewarded for the amount of time that I have put through promoting the event, getting some game development studios sponsor us with some game keys to giveaway, making graphics for shirts and even wrist bands, spreading the word to get people from all over the world to watch and encourage us... this is a calling that's been dormant within me that I'm excited to begin and repeat throughout the year. Enough blabbering, on to the important stuff. We are doing this even on January 27th. We are starting at 6pm EST and we are going for the full 24-hours. Of course, the little one won't be there for the entire duration but there will be scheduled events where he will be joining me for some good fun. If any of you are interested in joining us by watching, here are the details; Youtube: https://goo.gl/70K0IE Twitch: https://goo.gl/ioRfId Beam: https://goo.gl/vN6qnf If YOU want to come and watch or simply want to extend the reach by sharing this post, it would be tremendously appreciated. The more people we can have, the more donations that we can get for this amazing cause, the better! If you want to support our effort, you can also check out our donation page and/or our event wrist bands! They are $5 (USD) each and $2 from each sale will be donated to the charity. Donation page: https://goo.gl/TayDSl Event Wrist bands: https://goo.gl/U4XeB6 Although we have streamed in the past and we are very comfortable with the technical "behind the scenes" stuff, if you have any best practices from your previous experiences, please share them, we'd like to know! Hoping to be able to make a difference! K.
  2. Hey again! (I'm taking over these forums...) We talked about creating a DnD group and streaming it out in efforts to raise some money for the kids. If you would like to be apart of it, or have anything to contribute, let me know and we'd appreciate any assistance! Thanks
  3. 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. https://github.com/cshomo11/b2aExtraLife See the stream in action here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLZbJi5BUPLE6lcXtvMB3KkGQeWSlFuXBT
  4. 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.
  5. Hello everyone, Does anyone have a recommendation of some PC games that are rated Everyone-Teen that can be fun to stream and for the viewers? I'm thinking of Cook, Serve, Delicious or Stardew Valley. But any other recommendation will help. Thanks, Drexnot
  6. I made a video to help everyone set up their Extra Life stream using some of the assets available for download from the Extra Life community site, StreamPro, and from @bread_man. Hope it helps some and hope everyone has a great game day! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cM4g1UTWtDk&feature=youtu.be
  7. Hey all! I have a Halloween stream scheduled for this Saturday at 1pm ET. It's my first stream after taking almost a year off, so I'll probably need some pitty views if you want to stop by Heck, if anything we can just chat about Game Day plans and swap ideas (I can't believe it's so close!) I'll be playing the Outlast 2 demo and Five Nights At Freddy's: Sister Location - maybe some DOOM if I have time. Twitch Channel See you there!

    We are a competitive esports team that is looking to help people and help out in the community! We will be streaming a variety of games such as Titan Fall 2 and Skyrim remastered! We hope to see a lot of people there not only watching but helping spread the word and donating to our page so we can reach our goal of $1000! All of these donations go towards Samaritan Medical Center! You can look at our channel here: https://www.twitch.tv/malicious6_ Hope to see you there!
  9. Does anyone have Superfight and plan on (or is interested in) streaming it on Game Day? I got a code in Loot Crate and figured it would be a great game to get a group of Extra Lifers together and have all of us stream it. Here's a link to a game play video on Steam if you don't know what the game is: http://store.steampowered.com/app/404770/ If we can't get at least 4 people to play it then I'll just use it as a donation incentive give away, so no worries! Let me know if you're interested in playing for an hour or two during your marathon!
  10. Hello. This is my first year doing Extra Life. I signed up as a team and will have some people joining me. My question is when you have a team is the 24 hours of streaming as a collective time for all the team or does everyone have to do 24 hours individually?

    First stream fundraising for extra life! This stream is part of my regular schedule, which will be dedicated to raising funds for Extra-Life from October 20th leading up to November 5th's Extra Life Marathon!! Stream is up from 6PM to 10PM Eastern Time, will be playing tons of Path of Exile, Overwatch with viewers and I have a Discord server ready to greet all of you Miracle-cakes for some fun gaming for kids!
  12. Does anyone know what timer this is and how it works? It was used by KindaFunny Games last year. I would love to have something like this on our Marathon coming up and would appreciate the insight and help. This shows an active counter showing how many hours online and donations received. I appreciate the help. See the VOD link below to see it in action. VOD Link: https://www.twitch.tv/kindafunnygames/v/26632415
  13. Hello, Our community is having its first marathon for Extra Life and the Kentucky Children's Hospital on 10-21 and 10-22 for 25 hours. We are wanting to reach out about a few things. #1: Are there new graphics and materials for 2016 or is everything the same from last year? #2: Is there a donation tracker where would could have on during our marathon just what we are raising instead of having our end goal? We use the built-in widget now through StreamPro. #3; Is there any kind of countdown timer to Extra Life to bring in Hype for the marathon we are having? I would appreciate the help and feedback on all the questions we have!

    Ok everyone this is it!!! Time for our yearly 24 hour game stream! We will be hosting the event at Monroe Carrol Jr Children's Hospital, at Vanderbilt. The event will take place in the Waddlington Board rooms (same place where we've been having our meetings, but we will remove the divider wall, to make more room) We will be live streaming, have multiple projectors set up to connect gaming systems. Those who plan on attending can bring their own Consoles/TVs/Board Games/Card Games, etc to the event. Great network to use for online.

Keep the content of your games to a maximum rating of “T for Teen.” No “M” rated games (and most games rated PEGI 16+, not sure? Ask!). This shouldn't be a big surprise!

Use the Official Extra Life Stream Team assets when streaming. Console streamers MUST have access to a capture card and software that supports Twitch Stream Keys.

    Today Charlie and I are doing a 12 hour live stream on the youtube channel RipTheScriptGaming! Our goal is a measly $100 just to start. Spread the word!
  21. I was watching The Office (because who doesn't love that show) and the episode where Michael puts a golden sheet of paper in 5 random paper boxes came on. I immediately thought that would be an awesome idea for fundraising! My thoughts revolve around live streaming, so if you don't stream this can be easily modified. I don't have it all nailed down in my head, but I was thinking something like every time someone donates I could bring up a digital board of flipped over cards - similar to Memory. A few of those cards would be gold and I would let the viewer choose the card for me to flip. If it's gold they get a giveaway prize, and if it's not I'll have some sort of smaller conciliation prize. You could use a digital spin wheel, or even draw a card out of a hat or something. I thought it would be fun so I'm pretty excited to give it a try! Let me know if any of you have done something like this and how it worked out!
  22. While most of us will be focused on Extra Life on November 7, it might be worth sparing a glance or two at the Mass Effect and BioWare Twitter accounts. There will be opportunities throughout the day for people to win a PlayStation 4 or Xbox One emblazoned with the N7 logo. "I'm Commander Shepard and this is my favorite console on the Citadel" - Commander Shepard (probably) BioWare will also be streaming the entirety of the Mass Effect 3: Citadel DLC as part of their Extra Life charity stream. All donations to the stream will be matched by the company up to their $10,000 goal. They'll be giving away a number of prizes directly on their stream, as well as taking audience input as to what decisions they should make throughout their stream. They will start streaming on Twitch this Saturday at 9am PST.
