Power On/Off =

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.

Livestreaming and OBS

Ngalac-OBSstart.JPG

OBS Studio ( https://obsproject.com/ ) is used to collect all of the sources from NGALAC and send them to Twitch/Youtube. When NGALAC starts you should see the screensaver that plays when NGALAC is not streaming on the upper screen. If this is the case you should only need to press the green "Push to Stream" [Livestream] button on the NGALAC console

Once you push the Livestream button the stream will connect and you will see the OBS broadcast profile showing what people watching the stream will see. Also the "On Air" lights will flash and turn on solid. It takes about 7 seconds for the live stream to start on twitch. The livestream will be at twitch.tv/noisebridge

There are cameras installed to show you, the player(s), and the control panel. There is also a microphone above the Livestream button.

  • Known Issues:
    • You will only see the chat from twitch.

      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.



    • Ngalac-OBS-windowed.JPG
      OBS is set to start up full screen but this often doesn't work, sometimes you'll end up with OBS in windowed mode with a command window in front of it (the command window is a by product of the script running the live stream button).
      • To switch OBS back to full screen Right Click in the empty grey area next to the preview of the broadcast scene and choose "Fullscreen Projector (Preview) > Display 0:1920x1060 @ 0 0. This will switch OBS back to full screen mode. It is much easier to read the chat and seen the camera views in this mode.
