Twitch%20Flying%20Circus%20page%201.1_zp

Salute gents!

In recent discussions on the ROF forums, a few people have suggested that live streaming would be a good way to promote ROF...so I am now pleased to present "JG1_Hotlead's Three-Ring Circus!"

Every other Sunday evening, I take my younger brother (Furious Flea) and younger cousin (Cloaked Careful) onto NFF for 45-60 minutes and we almost always end up having a blast. We've talked, and we've decided to start streaming our fortnightly adventures on Twitch! biggrin.png I've been working at test streaming and getting my Twitch channel set up the way I want it. You can see it here:
https://www.twitch.tv/jg1_hotlead

The astute observer will observe that I "borrowed" certain concepts from JG1_Britchot's professional-looking channel, like the topic cards in my bio. Why try to improve on something that looks great already? :P BTW, his channel is really worth a look if you are interested in Elite Dangerous. You can see it here:
https://www.twitch.tv/britchot

We will officially start streaming tomorrow at 7pm Central. (We usually fly on alternate Sundays around 5pm, but since this upcoming Sunday is Easter Sunday, our schedule will be a little off. ;) ) If you can't make it, no worries! Our broadcasts are archived for 14 days in our "videos" tab.

If you would like to be alerted when we go live on Twitch, feel free to give us a "follow" there!

Salute! icon_e_salute.gif

PS: While we are on the subject of Twitch streaming for ROF, here are two streamers (past and present) who have some really good content:

1) Hellbender. Although he's been inactive for a while now, his highlights are a riot to watch! Thanks for putting these out there, Bender! smile.png
https://www.twitch.tv/hbndr/videos/all

2) Warhawk1947. For a while now, he's been livestreaming a permadeath singleplayer campaign in PWCG. His current pilot serves in the Eastern Front and has 47 missions flown with 20 air victories. Worth a watch when he's online! https://www.twitch.tv/warhawk1947

Looks very nice, Hotlead, followed.  Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery and I'll take it ;)

 

Although it's almost all been Elite Dangerous since I started, I will also stream CloD (now that I know how) and BoS whenever I'm flying public servers.  I've learned some neat tricks with splash pages for those times I step away from JG4_Karaya's OBS Tutorial.  I need to set hotkeys to mute the audio as well as throw up notifications that I'm temporarily away from the keyboard instead of cutting off the stream all together.  

 

I'll keep an eye out for you and your Circus if I'm not actively flying!

Britchot,

 

Highlights of your Elite Dangerous missions would be appreciated, still plan to get it when it goes on sale.

 

S!

I've been avoiding replaying any videos due to copyright issues for the music I keep on the background. However, I'll go twitch no-rights music for the next undermining trip with Klaiber and Trev so I can store it. I guess I'll have to figured out how to do that first, though ;)

Thanks guys! :)

Regarding our schedule, I forgot that next Sunday is Easter Sunday. We won't be able to stream then. Therefore, we are going to try for tomorrow night (Tuesday) at 7pm. I've also updated the original post and will update my Twitch page when I get home. ;)

Thanks for the kind words guys! :)

 

We did our first live stream this evening. You can see it here as an archived video. What are your guys' thoughts on it as far as production goes? I could tell I needed to fiddle with a few settings as my microphone would sometimes cut off the beginning of my words. Also, I think the loading screen might have lasted a little too long before the stream actually started. Would you guys also like to see a webcam on me in my streams or would you prefer not to?

 

Anyway, we had a blast today. We should be flying again on April 30th. :D

I haven't had the chance to watch your clip yet but I know I've got plans for a webcam, simply because I want to be able to interact with my viewers more. I feel the chat alone is not enough. I'll be adding it after my trip, I believe. However, I may take part of my rig with me (sans flight controls) and start that early. Hotel internet dependent.
