  1. I haven't been subscribed for a few months. But i was an avid and dedicated roleplayer. After meeting a few great people, through streaming. My fiance and I may both resub to FFXIV HW, in July. May continue my original ideas, as well. I will probably stream it, and the Rp events i attend and Host, as a sort of "story time" stream. As for my ideas. AS i am an aspiring, disabled musician. I want to use game sfx, and voice lines; to produce original, gaming music. Of the EDM genre, and steampunk subgenre. using the sounds of the Skysteel Manufactory, in Ishgard, and the sounds of the class skills. Project Machinist, and my adventuring in Eorzea, will not be coming to a close. My future in streaming, also has large goals. Not only do i have a set of digital mixers, but i also have a Launchpad Pro. I would like to set it up, as a comical, Real Time soundboard. To help increase the interactivity, and humor, of my stream. To make it more enjoyable, for my soon-to-be viewers. Right now, i don't have any, and am still very green in the understanding of my launchpads capabilities. But i have hope, that i can combine my love of gaming, music, and humor. Into my stream, so others my experience my passion, and how it pertains to my Extra Life-style :P. Please feel free, to add me, or keep an eye out for me. Sigmund Frey is my main. Race changed him due to harassment, but still love him. My alt is Bubunori Zezenori. Djsparky85, on twitch, and facebook.
  2. Yeah, i blow up facebook about an hour before. But most of the people on my facebook, don't interact, talk or comment. So its like.. a 90% dead Friend list. Most are people from school, who just accept Add Requests, but never post to communicate. I don't have a twitter, but i did use Instagram at one point. For characters i was writing about. So it's kind of in character.(in role).
  3. No, i was unaware of that post. I generally just browse the news feed, for interesting things. As well as Akron posts. I haven't really looked much into the out of town EL posts, much. I just posted on there myself
  4. I just started streaming, a few weeks ago. Have found getting viewers to be hard, when you know no one to share it with. Was recently referred to this post by Cawzy. So heres my stream. djsparky85 and my youtube: dragonspecpc for series based past broadcasts. I've followed some of you already, but this is a great idea, to spread the word
  5. I checked out a good bit of streams, but none of them were from the same game. 1 or 2 playing RUST, which ive been wanting to get. Would be fun as a large group. Like minecraft, but way more survival. Some Smash bros, splatoon, Overwatch, and Paragon (another game i've been told to get, for cross platform). Was watching a lot of @destiny. But hes get like a million followers, and hundreds of thousands for viewer subs. Because they had a massive RUST server ambush going on. Not exactly a kid friendly stream, lots of yelling at one another, and nudity. Since Rust starts you as a naked survivor. But was hanging out in there, and talking to the community, where the streamer didn't.
  6. I've been lurking all day, trying to mingle. Seems a lot of streamers just ignore chat.
  7. To me, that feels like follower poaching. Going to other peoples channels, to tell people to come check out your stream.
  8. Yup, thats the same post i read previously. I don't meet the requirements. I'm not a pro streamer, but have streamed for over 100+ hours. I have no followers that are not fellow extra lifers, so i haven't got the experience interacting with my viewers, yet. On the active side, i am over qualified, but the experience part; i do not. This is also only my second month, in Extra Life. I've registered, and discussed EL with many people in person, but i am by no means; experienced or well versed in EL. I was told the rules changed a bit, when leadership of the Stream Team changed. But i guess it wasn't enough. I suppose i will apply in another 6mo to a year.. :/ Was just hoping being hosted on the official EL, would increase my viewer numbers, to give me people to interact with. I'll continue with my 8-12 hour streams on my own.
  9. I'd like to apply for the Stream Team, to possibly get a time slot on the Official Twitch page. Right now, i have a tendancy to stream from 4-11 hours, per session. So i can amend my hours a bit, for a short session, based on schedule. I can configure my Scene 3, with the overlay, once again. To use specifically for Stream team hours. I could really use the followers/viewers. So i am trying to put myself out there, for any hosting, to bolster my numbers a bit. Not sure where i go to apply, or where to see the stream slots available. So any info will be appreciated.
  10. Apparently I've been using most of this already. Didn't know this was here. Googled for the infograph. Still trying to figure out if there was a way to set a video commercial automatically. When game capture can't detect a running game. Right now it's set up to show an intermission image from a vintage theatre. Scene 2 is my ibtro outro with scrolling marquee info of what extra life is by definition. Plus the CMNH infograph. With Twitter and fb info from the EL overlay. Another marquee with our November date. Might add in the latest humble later. Still need to get viewer's.. I have worked my butt off for a unique set up with plenty of info without being cluttered and congested. If you can leave opinions. Its my first month streaming. Already have over 100 hours into it.
  11. Eh, i'm looking at OBS right now. While it's great to have overlay options, and all the customizable settings.. There is no in-game overlay. I can't start/stop stream, preview stream, see or reply to twitch chat. I can't even see if it works or not, as Game Capture under Preview Stream, shows as black when alt tabbed. I am a laptop streamer, so i get the feeling that OBS is more for people with multiple windows. I feel detached, not having anything ingame during a stream. Xsplit can show how long i've been live, as well as a Live indictator and resolution quality. So i know when it disconnects, or hasn't started yet. Granted, in the shift+Tab overlay lags a bit in game, once in awhile. But at least it's there, so i don't have to alt tab constantly. I don't even think OBS can support alt tabbing. I don't want the desktop constantly popping up, should i need to check info off-game. In Xsplit, it automatically posts a default or custom BRB image, when i alt tab.
  12. I have the install folder for OBS, but when i unpacked this new laptop. It came with an unlimited recording license, of xsplit. But the license i have, doesn't include Overlays, show twitch chat in stream, or follower/donation notifications. Didn't have a setup at all, was pre-set up, just needed to be linked to a youtube or twitch. I've been using that for about 2 weeks, just installed Xsplit Broadcaster, which is like OBS. With all the seperate Scene buttons. Trying to learn its set up, since i hear you can use it to record desktop. For when i get my equipment set up, for a Mix Monday, or something. So i can stream Ableton live, and Serato DJ Controller. But i will continue to consider OBS as a back up. Just have gotten so spoiled on the easy setup and run of Gamecaster.
  13. I have the overlay, from the Kit. But until i get paid in June, i can't upgrade my stream license, to use overlays . Was denying my payment method, because my bank isn't set up, yet, to accept foreign countries business. With Split Media Labs being an Asia based country. I have to contact my bank, when i get paid next. Then i'll be using the Extra Life Overlay. This week, every stream, i have commentated, and have mentioned Extra Life before middle, and after.
  14. Right now, i stream everyday.. Nearly 10-12 hours at a time. I have a lot of free time.
  15. I would. However, the extra life stream team, is not welcoming to new streamers. The rules on the forums specifically states, new streamers aren't welcome. As they want people with X amount of experience, to even be considered for the official stream team. So i went solo, and taught myself everything, so far. From info set up, how to do it, and troubleshooting.
