About the Stream…

Well, first of all I gave the site a new layout. Let me know what you think!

Now, as for the stream, since my internet blows I won’t be doing it anymore. Whenever I do stream, it’ll just be testing stuff, all my game playthroughs will be on YouTube from now on. I may get back into streaming if/when I get better internet, but for now that’s it.

I have lots of plans for YouTube, and I’ve been experiment with render settings in Sony Vegas to try and get 720p without the files being too large, so possibly HD videos in the future. Black Mesa won’t be in HD because I didn’t record with Fraps at a high enough resolution, but future games will be recorded in HD. I should note there will be no more videos after Black Mesa until I get my new computer in a few months, so sorry but Fraps just takes up too much space. I’m getting the¬†AVerMedia C985 Capture Card, so that’ll sure be fun!

A Big Update

Well, since Minecraft Classic is dead, I guess that’s it for the server. I’ve removed the link to it, since it doesn’t work anymore and I won’t be putting the server up ever again. It was fun while it lasted, but the novelty of Classic just kind of wore off.

In other news, I’ve decided to cancel the LP of Super Mario Sunshine, and Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door is on hold until a future date. I’m just not interested in SMS anymore, and PM:TTYD I think to work on quite a bit before uploading new videos. I’ve got a new series though, but I’m not going to reveal it just yet. Here’s a hint: it’s a first-person shooter. And no, it’s not any online shit, it’s a singleplayer game with an actual storyline.

As for streaming, I haven’t been very into it lately, mostly because I have no idea what to play and nobody watches anyways. I might do it¬†occasionally… maybe… if I find a good game to play. But for now I don’t plan on streaming anything.

So I guess that’s all, take care.

Oh XSplit…

Why do you have to be a piece of junk when I need you most? XSplit is what I use to stream, but crashes when I try to stream! It’s fucking useless now! This is really starting to piss me off.

Okay, so here’s my scenario:
I open XSplit, setup the game and chat capture and an image, then start broadcasting. That will work for all of about 10 minutes, then the whole dang thing will freeze up completely. No GUI response, no stream, nothing at all. The only way to close it is through Task Manager.

I’m on Windows 7 64-bit and using the latest development version of XSplit (same issue happened with public release), if anyone else has this issue and/or a solution to it, please post a comment. I really need this fixed!
