ETB Summer Streams

Recommended Posts

Following up on a post by Trojan, I think we can all work to add some extra flair to summer league.

I'm thinking Sunday night, some time between 8-10 pm central, having a game of the week, where one or 2 games are streamed with commentary by guys like AJ/Ice/Trojan arranged as well.  Pretty sure if I stream the game and say AJ/Trojan are in a party mode setup where their stream is linked, they can stream the game with commentary.

I think leading up the game while it's getting setup, could discuss current league standings/stats &&& NHL94 stuff coming up, etc, like a 5-10 minute lead in at most.  One or two games being streamed on a set time, means total time would be in the range of 30 minutes available on a weekly basis.

 

Thoughts?

I think it’s hard enough to lineup 1 person to play with in the summer. Aligning everyone’s schedules could be tough. I also wouldn’t want any bells and whistles to compromise the quality of the connection.  It sounds like a fun idea but not worth it IMO.

Sounds very cool. (A "Game Night" would also go a long way to getting ppl gathered for games among themselves, cuz some ppl get hard to find as the season advances.)  The 5-10 min lead in might be a nice-to-have (that may not happen -- pretty sure Brutus is the only nerd here that isn't a shut-in), but streaming games is easy enough.

Edit: Boo! Hiss! (Directed toward MikeG above :P)

Streaming on Retro I highly doubt puts any strain on NHL94.

We can easily test it, as I have a twitch account, and can stream exi's w/ & w/out it to see if it effects quality.

 

And, Game of Thrones is over.  Stanley Cup is almost done.  Football is months away and baseball sucks these days, and that leaves Sunday nights free for most of you nerds for sure!  Especially, if we make it Game Night.  More likely to make yourself available.  AT WORSE, we record our games or krecs and get them to AJ/Trojan to convert to a video stream that they can run/comment on Sunday night, and then we upload the results, so it's like a TAPE DELAY.

Yeah, I am pretty sure between Trojan, AJ & myself, a weekly lead in wouldn't be too hard to drum up.  Again, worse case would be every other week if activity was low, imo.  Still good to start something like this, and let the ball start to roll where it rolls.

@angryjay93, and a number of other Tecmo players have been doing a weekly broadcast covering the most competitive games of the 2019 GBLAN(my organization) Online Tecmo Super Bowl tournament that we do annually now.  The games are played in advance, and we utilize the emulator's recording/playback feature that creates a very small file.  That file uses the emulator to play back the action.  It's about 95% effective.  We take that, plug it into the emulator, and call the action while recording using OBS.  I use the screen sharing feature of Discord to bring in the audio for my color commentators.  I'm not sure if there is a similar feature built into the likes of RA, but we could work with a raw video file, should someone send me the link for it.  Doing this live would be a s**t show.  Doing the recording, then premiering it on a notable channel with eyeballs would be ideal.  This year we partnered with The Retro Sports Gamer Channel on Youtube.  The response has been very good so far.  Here is an example of that.  It's Tecmo, not NHL94, but the same concept could be brought to the NHL94 community, should we settle on how we capture the games being played.  I don't see this working as a live endeavor.
