    Are we gonna get some more diverse multiplayer games on the go this time? I enjoyed the January game day, but a heavier emphasis on community games should increase turnout/involvement. Stuff like: Battleborn, BF4/BF1, Guns of Icarus, LOL/DOTA2/HotS,insurgency, HAWKEN, Brawlhalla, Chivalry, Robocraft, Rocket League, Dirt 3/Ratlly/Showdown, etc etc.... Don't get me wrong, it's great to watch folks play SP games, but it'd be awesome to get some more multiplayer stuff on the go.

    Hello All, Xavious here. Most call me Steak as I rebranded my twitch channel to TheRealMrSteak but you will see me Discord and other things as XaviousD. I've had some form of computer since I was 5. In the EARLY 90's I ran a multinode Bulletin board system (with dialup and stuffs, you were top dog if you have a 14.5 baud modem) and was in the art scene (ANSI and ASCII). Favorite all time game has go to of been and still is Star War Galaxies, (pre/post CU versions not the NGE stuff they put out after the fact), and I'm also a World of Warcraft player, however I don't play on a schedule anymore just here and there. I'm currently into Minecraft, The Division and 7 Days to Die. I run my own e-commerce business and I worked for amazon for many years as a project specialist fixing amazon's internal processes for support teams. Any questions you may have feel free to shoot them my way.

    Hey everyone, I guess you could call this a build log of sorts. I look at it as more of a rundown of my new budget m-atx build. As some of you may know, I have been away from the PC gaming community for the last few months due to real life things. That is a story for another time. Now it’s time to talk about the system I built to get back into gaming with friends again. For the most part I have limited myself to a budget of around $800. So let’s take a look at what hardware this build is comprised of. Here is a list of the hardware with approximate pricing. Case – Fractal Design Define Mini-C – $85 CPU – AMD Athlon X4 845 – $68 Mobo – Gigabyte GA-F2A88XM-D3HP – $60 RAM – Klevv Urbane 16GB(2×8) DDR3 2133 – $90 CPUHSF – Cryorig M9a Mini Tower Cooler – $19 PSU – Fractal Design Integra M 550W – $60 Video Card – Sapphire Nitro Radeon RX460 4GB – $125 SSD – Adata Ultimate SU800 256GB – $80 Now this is just the hardware for the system itself, not counting peripherals and OS. The price comes out to $587 not including shipping(all parts ordered from Newegg). I know I could have gone with some less expensive parts and saved a few dollars, but I still like decent looks to go with functionality. I did have to buy a new monitor and keyboard as well as some extras for the system. Monitor – Viewsonic VX2457-MHD 24″ 1080p Freesync – $150 Keyboard/mouse combo – Coolermaster Devastator II LED(kid chose this) – $30 Case fans – (2) 92mm Fractal Design Silent Series R2(used on heat sink in push/pull config) – $18 Cable – Phanteks 3″ Y-spliiter fan cable – $5 Cable – 6ft Display Port m-m – $7 The total for the extras comes out to $210. The total cost for everything came out to $797. I did not include the price of the operating system in the total cost. If I were to include the price of the OS, it would roughly be another $100. This system plays most games at 1080p on medium to high detail @60fps, depending on the game of course. On another note recently I have picked up a new keyboard and mouse, but I am not going to include those in the price of the build since they were picked up well after the build was up and running. I do have some other plans for this build as I am never truly done. First off was making the lettering on the CPU cooler white(the last 2 pics show that). I will do some custom sleeved cables in the future and possibly some painting o something in the near future.

    Here's a very quick and dirty post about using voicemeter banana as a software mixer. I've fully switched over to it and I'm really liking it, if you have screen real estate but not a hell of a lot of desk real estate and not sure if you want to shell out some money on a good mixer board, this is your next best option. So what's voicemeter? Check out their page: http://www.vb-audio.com/Voicemeeter/banana.htm I am using voicemeter banana, so that's what this will be about. By the way, the software is DONATIONWARE! So it's basically free unless you want to donate. If you can, please support the devs of this software since it's pretty damn good! Once you have it downloaded and installed the fun setup begins, for the purposes of this tutorial I here is what I am using hardware wise: CAD u37 - (Hardware input 1) Main microphone Logitech G930 - ( Hardware input 2) Secondary microphone Primary output (A1) - Speakers (rear audio) Secondary output (A2) - G930 (USB) Tertiary output (A3) - SMSL DAC/AMP to headphones This is what my interface looks like right now with all inputs and outputs. Now for the windows portion of the setup. I have my vban set to a 2 part system. If you look at the screenshot you will see that I have "Voicemeter VAIO" set to my current output (A3) as well as "Voicemeter AUX). The reason I have it set this way is because I am using discord/voice communications as a totally different channel independent of the main audio source (desktop AKA VAIO). If you want a similar setup here's how you need to set up your windows sound options: THIS IS YOUR PLAYBACK DEVICES TAB: I have AUX split (which is Voicemeter AUX in the main interface screenshot.) This is your desktop audio. If you set it the way I have it you won't have to really worry about windows derping and doing whatever it wants to do, if you set it this way you are telling your system you want all audio managed and routed through VBAN which is EXACTLY what you want to do. THIS IS YOUR RECORDING DEVICES TAB: I am also splitting my inputs here as well. I recommend doing this otherwise windows will do whatever the hell it wants to your audio setup at any time. With these set as your defaults, you are forcing windows to default to voicemeter to control sound. Now let's talk about discord. I am not letting discord choose default devices because I have had windows (after an update) reset my settings and bork my discord settings. So follow this configuration to manually tell discord what to do: You can find these settings under "Voice". So there's the quick and dirty setup guide. I hope it's coherent, if it isn't, feel free to ask and I'll try to explain what I can from my experiences. PRO TIP: SAVE YOUR CONFIGURATION IN THE MENU! If you have your settings like you want it save it. That way if you make a change or have to reinstall, you won't lose your settings. Also, if you're streaming and your audio goes derp, or actually, if your audio ever goes derp, go to menu and restart audio engine. Works flawlessly even if you're streaming and you have to do it mid stream.

    EDIT 3OCT2016: Folks while I have stopped streaming regularly I still try to stay on top of OBS Studio streaming options and settings and will absolutely help you troubleshoot your settings to get the best experience with your streaming service. Contact me in Discord. The past few weeks I've been focusing very hard on developing the highest quality stream within the constraints of my system. This post will be constantly updated as I find things not necessarily public knowledge to help increase the quality of your stream and give you tips & tactics to succeeding in this crazy world. Date last updated: 21JAN2016 A discussion on mindset. There are some streamers who want to do it simply to do it, they have no aspiration to "make it big" or any variation thereof and simply want to play some games for whoever will watch. There's nothing wrong with that, and please read on, but if you are such a streamer please frame everything I discuss in the context that I'm speaking to those wanting to achieve some degree of success be it Partner on Twitch, effectively monetizing YouTube, whatever. First, ask yourself why you want to become a live streamer. If at any time you said to yourself "Hey he's just playing a game and raking in money and fame for it, I can do that." STOP. About face, walk away. Streaming will crush you. What I mean is there is a very distinct difference between "just playing a game" and being an entertainer. I'd wager a large percentage of gamers play their games while staring blankly at the screen. Maybe occasionally laughing or commenting (to themselves) about what's happening. If you think it's as easy as "just read a chat while playing" Then you're in for a shock as to the response you get, or lack thereof. It's difficult for me to describe the composition that makes a successful streamer what he/she is. If you watch the top talents of live streaming you'll notice it's not exactly something that's easily defined, and it can come and go. You'll have good days, weeks, months, years, and bad days, weeks, months, careers, but the bottom line is to succeed in this business you need to be an effective combination of tech geek, gamer, and entertainer. You have to develop that special knack to make light of any situation and inject positivism into your persona so it projects out and draws in others. It's work. An awful lot of it. Being a live streamer talent doesn't stop when you punch that "Stop Streaming" button. You need to constantly refine yourself, research things that you feel you're weak at, practice, upgrade equipment you feel is shortcomings in your system, adjust lighting, manage social media, adjust your background (or tweak the green screen), manage social media some more, realize your channel art sucks, fix it, realize it sucks more now, manage social media, network, chat with other live streamers, trade notes, manage social media, manage it more, realize that you still have to pretend you have a real life, go outside, and manage social media. Let's talk tech & settings: I stream using the latest version of OBS MultiPlatform 64-Bit Kodeten's Suppressed BattleBox MSi GAMING 970 AMD FX-8370 (4.4GHz Boost Clock) 16GB (4x4GB) Crucial Ballistix Sport DDR3 SAPPHIRE R9-Fury 4GB HBM Samsung 840 EVO 120GB (System Disk) Seagate Barracuda 750GB HDD (Personal Files) Seagate Barracuda 2TB HDD (Game Drive) Fractal Design EDISON-M 750W Gold PSU Fractal Design DEFINE R5 KodeTen's SpeedTest Different systems will encounter different results, this is very much a process of working within your system constraints. My Setting Screens, and explanations: SINGLE BOX STREAMING Streaming and gaming on the same box is entirely possible, it just has a few nuances that need to be accounted for, anything that will assist in taking load off the CPU will be used, here's a look at my settings for Single-boxing: Output Screen Audio Track: 1 No reason to change this, just increases the amount of Audio Tracks being recorded for later editing. If you stream only, this has no use. Encoder: Intel Quick Sync H.264 Encoder This was actually a major breakthrough and shared with me by Sinzia and PunkPoets during one of my troubleshooting streams. Intel Quick Sync is a technology that leverages the Integrated GPU (iGPU) on most Consumer Intel SKUs to perform video encoding. If you're using a discreet GPU (Most gaming machines are) then you can bet your iGPU has spent most of it's life sleeping. OBS MP has the API to allow for it to use the iGPU to perform encoding, which has resulted in a 25% decrease in CPU usage while live. AMDs FX Line doesn't have integrated graphics, If you are using an AMD APU, unfortunately there isn't yet an option to utilize the on-board GPU to encode, HOWEVER, if you've crossfire'd the APU with an AMD GPU, it is possible to leverage that technology using AMD VCE (Video Coding Engine) which utilizes an encoding ASIC on the AMD GPUs to perform encoding. I haven't yet checked to see if it results in a measurable load on the GPU, it may not, in which case the APU wouldn't be utilized anyway. Enforce Streaming Service Encoder Settings Checked, unchecked, doesn't really matter, I focus on setting my OBS within the constraints of the ingest server and my machine anyway so this doesn't really matter. I just turned i ton while writing this guide so I'll update with benefits if any. Rescale Output This is actually a very crappy "pre-encoder" Downscale that results in very distorted output. Uncheck and forget it exists. Profile: High Expected Encoding Profile by Hitbox. My dashboard yells at me if I'm set to anything else. This is more of a "Your OBS talking to their Transcoding engine" Keyframe Interval (seconds): 2 Once again a setting demanded by most Streaming services. There's a very technical explanation for Keyframes. Just set it to 2. Rate Control: CBR Every streaming service I know of demands CBR (Constant BitRate) control. Doesn't make sense to me as being able to ramp bitrate up and down would be more efficient on processor and bandwidth but it's their house. Bitrate: 2500 You're limited here by a number of things as a Non-Partner. Your Upload speed is the primary. Since my Upload speed is around 5 I'm actually using half of my available upstream at 2500 MBps. The other half is available downstream of your viewers. As a non-partner you're limited to Source encoding or "What you see is what you get" So to watch a 2500 Bitrate stream you'd have to have a connection that can downstream at minimum 3Gbps or 3000 Kbps. I know, this is 2016 and everyone should be able to download well faster than that but it's not really the case. For whatever reason Hitbox can deliver higher bitrate streams to more people with less issues than Twitch, as a non-partner on Twitch i regularly streamed at a 1500 bitrate, anything higher and too many viewers would buffer out. On Hitbox the minimum is 2000. Video Screen Renderer: Direct3D 11 Direct3D is the more efficient Capture method on Windows machines. OpenGL is a distant second but necessary if you're a weirdo capturing on Mac or Linux. Base (Canvas) Resolution: 1920x1080 Set to the base resolution of your desktop. Output (Scaled) Resolution: 1280x720 This is an "After encoder" Downscale and much more clear and efficient. plus we have a lot more control over the method of downscale. Set this to 540p (960x540) if you're non-partner on Twitch. As a Partner without Transcoding options on Hitbox I run 720p. Downscale Filter: Bicubic This is one of the big things to help with quality of your downscale stream. Experiment with this to find the sweet spot of quality to processing power requirements. FPS Values This is another quality setting, For non-Partnered Twitchers I'd stick to 30 FPS streaming, on my end I can run up to 60. This is going to depend a lot on your processing power. 60FPS crushed my i5 until I figured out to offload encoding to the iGPU, even then I still run 75-80% usage while playing and streaming. Beam.pro Notes I love Beam.pro, I think it's a better streaming service than any other in terms of community and technology, and it is the officially endorsed streaming platform for the ATGC. That said, there are some notes to consider. Tachyon: FTL vs. RTMP Beam has released their own re-write of OBS (labeled Tachyon) To engage with OBS' FTL Streaming service. FTL allows for an unprecedented sub-second latency between streamer and viewer, it allows you to communicate with your audience in real-time, but it has it's caveats. I'm going to go on record and say that I do not use or recommend FTL at this time. While, as a service, it's concept is amazing, it's still not completely 100% there, or user-friendly to engage with. That said, using standard OBS Studio and engaging Beam's RTMP Servers leads to a very respectable 2-6 second delay between the streamer and their audience. The bottom line is while FTL is cool, I personally use and recommend Beam's RTMP service due to ease of connection, and the fact that the latency for Beam's "lesser" connection method still beats the pants off it's competitors. More to come.
