    Consider this the real-time analogue to the gameplay video thread. There has been enough streaming posts laterly that I figured I'd start a thread for people to link to their stream/comment.

    For most (all?) people this is done on twitch, so if you've got the time and interest i'll start it off with a bunch of HC CE duels between my novamancer and nihlathak. I'm 1 level higher than him (96) so I'm much better at this than he is.

    Nice thread idea. :thumbsup:

    Been thinking about doing this, but i doubt there's interest in watching more then 2 Baalruns with a summoning necro. Let alone multiple k's worth.

    Other than that i'm wondering what the screen looks like when you play. Is it like a sligthly smaller full screen for D2 and the messages on the left/right side? Does it cause lag? And most importantly: does the audio have a spellcheck so people can understand what you're saying. :D (Or how interested would people be in viewing a stream without someone using a headset?)

    I play D2 windowed and I see the twitch messages on my right because I play with that window open, too. I'm not sure how else to do it.
    I don't think it causes me any lag.
    I have a headset but I usually just type comments or responses because I tend to listen to music and don't know how to separate "all system sounds" from the stream.

    I really enjoy watching people play (especially those more experienced than myself) but I definitely prefer listening to people speak than type.

    Is there a FAQ or something on how to stream game play? I think people might enjoy seeing me make a dick of myself and swearing at the game.

    I'm travelling with work, so my streaming capabilities are even less possible than if I were at home. Otherwise, I'm bored, potentially intoxicated to some degree, away from home, and would like to watch. :(

    My bad - The timestanp is 04:21 - I read it as: 4:21 pm -> which would have been 1621

    Yes, it's hot, I'm tired but am glad I'm home. :)

    Send some of your heat this way! It was +7 the other day and that was considered "warm". Can't wait for the summer...

    How about I take a trip to Canada - I would like to go there during winter. :)

    Edit: Oops - you can always come to Australia too. We got some nice warm days for you.

    Your winter or our winter? Just the other week it was -25 without the windchill. I had to replace the battery in my car.

    And I'll never go to Australia. I refuse to go to any place where there are spiders bigger than my face.
