The current process of turning NGALAC on and off is to connect or disconnect the power cable from the wall outlet. Everything inside NGALAC should be setup to turn on automatically. Once power is connected the raspberri Pi should load retropi for the games and the PC should load windows and start OBS.

'''''How to you select and start games????'''''
 
 
NGALAC runs an emulator called RetroPie. To move through the menus for game and system selection use the joysticks.
 
 
LAUNCH function is mapped to the bottom YELLOW button on the player one side.
 
BACK function is mapped to the bottom GREEN button on the player one side.
 
 
If you press the SELECT or START buttons and bring up the "Options" or "Main Menu", press the same button again to exit the menu.
 
 
While a game is running, you can get back to the System/Game selection window by pressing GAME SELECT and SELECT (on the player one side) at the same time.

To use a controller, first ensure all buttons above all ports are in the 'off' state. It is currently difficult to tell what the 'off' state is, but it is when the button is sticking out of the panel further upon pushing it.

After all controller ports are off, plug in your controllers and turn on the ones you want in the order you want them assigned to players. So, the first one turned on should be "player 1". The second one turned on should be "player 2", etc..

** You will only see the chat from twitch.
** The chat doesn't always work, sometimes closing and reopening OBS fixes this, but this stops the live stream button from working. If you need to restart OBS use the keyboard and mouse to control the PC under the joystick panel. You may need to click the mouse and then press escape to get OBS out of full screen mode. Then in OBS click stop stream and then exit.

** [[File:Ngalac-keyboardtray.JPG|right|300px]] You have access to the OBS settings, but please don't change anything. We've tested everything pretty well so please leave things as is. If you want to help improve things, please connect with the NGALAC team; ask around. However, you may want/need to switch OBS to full screen mode. There is a keyboard and mouse to control the PC under the joystick panel.

** [[File:Ngalac-OBS-DevProd.JPG|right|300px]] OBS should be set to use PRODUCTION as a default. We use two twitch accounts twitch.tv/noisebridge for our streaming and twitch.tv/ngalac for testing. You can switch between the two in OBS using the "Profile" menu. DEVELOPMENT streams to twitch.tv/ngalac and PRODUCTION streams to twitch.tv/noisebridge and also youtube. The twitch.tv/noisebridge account has the most followers and is the one we promote, so please us that one if you want to share your gaming with our followers.
