  1. Edit: It's out! Hey everyone! This is my 3rd year supporting Extra Life, and my main source of fundraising has been streaming and donations through Twitch. I teamed up with a back in April for a "Pretty Princess" stream with a friend of mine where we raised ~$1,400 for Extra Life! Shortly after though, due to personal reasons, I had to stop streaming on a regular basis. But I had a project on the backburner that I wanted to put whatever free time and energy I had into, and try to raise some money for EL before the end of the year. I've been playing music for 20 years, but never did an actual music project or album. I decided to change that, and I'll be releasing a six-track EP tomorrow (Wednesday, 12/5) called "World Warriors", a homage to the Street Fighter series. The concept is mixing and mashing metal songs, old and new, with video game music. The Chrono Trigger battle theme sounds like "The Trooper" from Iron Maiden? Let's do a song called Chrono Trooper! You get the idea I'll be doing a stream on Twitch on 12/5 at 6:30 PM ET as a "release party", and I'll play a few songs live. But once I release the album on Bandcamp, the "Pay More" option will be enabled. If you buy the album and pay more above the minimum price ($3 for a digital copy, $5 for a physical copy), I'll collect the additional money and donate it to Extra Life before the year end. I'll edit this post with the Bandcamp link once I release the album, but if you'd like to support on stream tomorrow, my Twitch channel is below! Promo video:

  7. Twitch Channel

    I would like to participate in the guild stream on twitch. My game of choice would be xcom 2 or halo wars 2 preferably Wednesday nights.
  8. I run a Community channel on Twitch and we are planning our first 48HR Marathon for this year and trying to find a unique look for an overlay and would like to add-in some modules or extra things to spruce up the overlay. I saw some streamers last year using some cool features and they mentioned a site they used Codepen and that it was pretty simple but I have been on their site and do not see anything in relation to what they used. I would be happy to commission and pay someone for an overlay for our Team and if anyone here has ideas of things to use on the stream that helps make things look slick and professional I am all about it. I have placed below the example of what I am looking at and hopefully, someone can share some feedback on things. I appreciate the help in advance! I have attached a clip from their live event last year and would love to personally have some of these things on my channel. I really like the design, animations below cam and below the game box plus the timer showing how long the Marathon was happening. Can anyone help or give advice?

Hope to see y'all there! It'll be fun - Noah / Galliant

  16. Hello everyone! I put it to vote and the community had me change my habits. On Dec. 24th and 25th, I'll be doing a switch up of my Christmas 24 hour show to standard, but long (10 or so hours) shows. These shows will be just as myself. On Dec. 30-31st, I'll be doing yet another marathon. This time for 31 hours. This is my last hurrah for the Extra-Life campaign for this year, and since I've missed out on doing shows like this, it's time to do a few. Planning details, show breakdown and other things will come later. Due to the length of the show, I will not be Pandish. It's just too much to maintain for that many hours. My current total for the year is $1337.00 (Isn't that awesome of my community?). New Year Charity-thon As usual, I will require additional moderators and other support. If you have anything you'd like to drop in for ideas for the day, I'd love it! This show will be mainly for the General Audience, and will not contain any questionable language from me. The games I pick for the days will be multi-player or audience based. Things to keep the show energized, and myself awake. If you can participate in the show as multi-player participant, throw a PM/shout at the channel Discord. More news to come as I update.

  19. Post TwitchCon 2016

    Sorry for the delay on this post but I think I'm officially done unpacking from this convention & mapped out what happened from Twitch 2016 This is what happened ! (i.e. Hotel stay was about .5 miles from Convention Center, ill be editing this because i know that I fail at grammar) Wed 28th Sept Arrived at the Hotel and checked in. Unpacked and when Pokemon Hunting, and the local gay bar (yeah sue me) Lots of Growlithe, Ekans, Geodudes. (RIP Dratini's) . I would of gone to Santa Monica Pier but that costs money (not happening). For a weekday in San Diego was busy af. Anyway, great places to go to eat but I stayed at the hotel to await Playing with Fire members. Thurs 29th Sept Had breakfast, more Pokemon hunting and tourist stuffs. (weird living in Niagara Falls, its was always the other way around) 2 Playing with Fire members checked in, then we planned for Sunday for Dinner. Had lunch (Panera Bread i had a free pastery for being in the club and a sandwich because my birthday was Sept 1) spent $5 on premium soda (because I felt boss af). More Pokemon hunting, went back to my hotel to print my Discord Unoffical-Offical Pre-Con Party. Open bar from 9pm to 2am PST.... (I'm still trying to remember that night) Went back to the hotel via UBER (Free) and crashed. Fri 30th Sept 730a Woke up breakfast then, walked to the convention center by 845a to stand in line.( I should of gotten there earlier, and brought a fold-able chair.) doors open at 9. We go up stair to wait in another line to get into the expo hall.(>.<) Then when the expo hall opened, I bolted to the merch line. (I wasn't waiting 8 hours like last year) 2 hrs later I hit the floor. I would say that i walked in that expo hall about 10 miles that day. I met with the Partnered Broadcasters and ask the questions like (What is it like to sustain partnership? What is the dos and dont's etc.) With the best answer I go was "Be yourself, and have fun doing it. Your Audience is there for you not the game. Let your fun personality shine." Im thinking to myself. That's what I'm doing already. Then i realized the reason you grow is who you know as well. Understanding the culture that we live in now, you need to embrace the streaming communities. Exchange information, be apart of their broadcasts. 1230p Went to I played the quest they had for us at the convention. Realized that its a 3 day quest to complete(wow a mmo in real life!) Turned in, Then i preceded to panels upstairs. I went to Tips and Tricks for Better Chat 330p Panel for Protecting Yourself on the Internet (Streamer Edition) then @ 530p Twitch Partnership FAQ Met with More Playing with Fire members went to different panels. Alpha tested that was unboxed in front of us. (sidenote: i was in the merch line and there was a HUGE black curtain over a big arena. Made it hard to get to the line. I was like wtf is this bs, then they dropped the curtain) Signed up and tested it, played it on the main stage. Got a alpha key. Signed up for streaming the game. ( I literally pooped myself. Im going to stream a Amazon Prime game that is in Alpha. I was thinking OK Jesus, i will do what you say) Met with my subscription casters (Joeneverfails, Purplekoolaidman & abraham_linksys) chatted talked to their communities. Went back downstairs to talk to a few booths talked with the Extra Life Reps. Saw, the card readers & got jelly. I didn't see Mike Kinney ( because i was looking for him all weekend, no dice) Retouched with people who became my best friend in the merch line. Went to FatShark Games Booth slide as many free steam keys because the man made a face at me. Awkwardly walked to the next booth to play Payday 2. ( I should buy this game, stream-able with friends ) Got a free shirt and bracelet. Left convention to unload swag and shower. Then UBER pool back to downtown. Met up with SkyDiveGayGuy( yeah i know, that's his twitch name ) ate subway then caught more Pokemon. Then bed. Saturday 1st Oct Breakfast at the hotel, All day talked to different booths about services that could better my live-stream. Most of them I'm already familiar with Streamlabs, BAND together app, XSplit, etc.But i wanted to get deeper into mobile. Amazon booth that you can trade in anything to open a locker filled with swag. Most got gift cards for 5, I was a pimp that walked with a $25, then i gave it to my mom when i got home. Did the quest on second day this one was more go find this because a certain computer.... in a sea of hundreds... 1p Lunch 2p Spoke with #HackHarrassment Charity (Intel Powered) about their cause 3-5p: Met with Mamas & Papa's meetup: Stream team community that i watch often. (semi-to real lewd/ weird community) 6p Sat on a panel Dire Straights: How LGBT+ Streamers Survive and Thrive. (tbh, the buffalo LGBT community could of learned a thing or 2 (or 7) about being tolerant against the internet. 7p Met with UGRGaming, DistractedElf, Anne Mution post panel. Learning to convert trolls to active community members. 8pm Left Convention had dinner with MisterGambino, and StatusChance at a mexican restaurant. The food was amazing (I paid for that extra cheese later, #lactoseProblems) 10p Departed to the TwitchCon after party at PetCo Park. So....many.....people....I....cant....move....forward.. $13 for a Rum & Coke (first and last drink from there) Watched T-Pain(nursing a hangover) Steve Aoki( threw 10 cakes into the crowd ), and Darude ( duDuDu ) Sun 2nd Oct. 12a left Park to go to Tipsy Crow, met up with Playing with Fire members Jwill, and Nelstar with PurplekoolaidMan's Mama's and Papa's 1245a Left to go to Whiskey House to meet All of Playing with Fire members and network. 230a left bar to go back to hotel. Caught more Pokemon, then went to bed. 8a Breakfast, went down to the convention enter for last day. 9am Networked, and visited more booths Hairbrained Studios, FatShark Games 11a - Livestream Amazon Studios received 3 keys, network (This game is what i want to stream asap.

  23. Hey there I recently made an away screen using the Extra Life background and color scheme. I figured that someone else may get some use out of it and I wanted to post it on here for anyone to use. Is there a way for me to add it to the downloads section? Still learning the site and would appreciate any help. (Attached version is exported to 480p, the full 1080p file was too big to attach)
