TECH REQUIREMENTS:1. We will be using a private RTMP server for your stream. Don't worry, it's very similar to Twitch.2. You must be able to sustain 1000kbps bitrate streaming for SD games, or 2000kbps for HD games. 60fps is preferred, but 30fps is acceptable. Maximum resolution is 1280x720.3. A webcam is not required, but you may provide it. (We are working on logistics of this, we may drop it later)4. Your stream layout should ONLY contain your game and the webcam (if any), side by side, on a black background. 5. You must be able to use Discord with a working microphone. You will be expected to provide commentary. We may allow you to invite others for commentary, but do not rely on this!6. Game audio should be on your RTMP stream. Do NOT have your Discord audio go on your stream. If you cannot figure out how to keep them separate, consider using Discord on a tablet or laptop.7. You MUST be in the Discord and ready to go & respond at least 30 minutes prior to your run. We will be attempting to set up the next one before the previous one ends. If you have tech questions, do NOT wait until the last moment, or your run will be replaced.
