John, I am presently using Flash Encoder with an $80 Logitech 920c pro HD 1080p. I will try to adjust settings to see if I can get the level to appear. The angle of the monitor is an issue. I tried different angles and was able to get a faint level to appear but it is not playable that way over a long period of time. I will see what I can come up with.

The key is to get the exposure correct.  Don't use "AUTO" for exposure, brightness or contrast.

1) Set exposure to one notch above where you see bad scan lines (usually "7" with most config utilities)
2) Set contrast to right before the black of the monitor starts lightening up.
3) Set brightness so light colors are not washed out.
4) Slightly tweak as needed.

Your on your own after that.

I'm not supposed to helping with webcam setup anyway...  But since this is for everyone, technically Eric can't yell at me.

Don't bother asking any webcam config questions.  I wont answer them.  I've said too much already...... :)

John, I helped Corey a little this AM and his issue is the viewing angle for his monitor and cam more than exposure. We messed with it a bit and also tried to setup some screencap stuff.

I know you guys want to make sure the level is clearly visible but personally I would give Corey a pass for 'best effort' to get a quality stream. I would even go as far as say I would go back and verify the level count myself if it got him to be able to play and submit for the WCR.

Thanks for the support and help Ken! I actually just bought a new computer from Dell shortly after you were trying to help me. I tried all I could with the new configuration and my computer simply can't handle all the programs I am throwing at it. I got the 999.99 one: http://www.dell.com/us/p/inspiron-15r-se-7520/pd?~ck=mn&~ck=mn. Thanks for your suggestions John, I will have my cab and new computer before we start.

I tried to change over to Twitch.tv, and for some reason it won't let me.  I just keep getting back to Justin.tv.   P.S. why is Justin.tv not allowed?  Isn't Justin.tv the same company as Twitch.tv?

George,

The rules have been updated.  Justin.tv is fine.  Eric actually okayed Justin.tv last tournament, we just forgot to add it to the actual rules.

Corey,

Whats your Twitch/Justin channel I'd like to take a look at your stream.

John, it is clchambers00. I adjusted the lighting in the room and moved the camera closer to my chin, lol, and got the level to show up. So I should be good. The new computer will be here tomorrow, and my cab is coming on Sunday. I should be good now, John. When I use the new computer, I will be using the OBS so no more webcam to bad computer screen!

There's nothing explicitly wrong with Justin, it's just not as integrated with the community and its layout is rather clunky in comparison. People can follow you on Twitch to get notified when you stream, and you can list your game name in the title so that people can find you when they look for DK games. That's how I found most of the streamers here.

I'm in again :)

Will have to try and get my cab out of the storage unit otherwise I'll be stuck playing on the PC.    Can't guarantee I'll have internet access, but I'll try, Wildcard #2 was great fun.

Just wanted clarification on the start time:

Is the 9pm start time on the 21st, or on the 22nd relative to the Pacific time zone? In other words, does most of the competition fall on the 22nd or 23rd relative to those living in the Pacific time zone? Thanks. Just needed to be absolutely certain, as I will be streaming all these WCRs from my local arcade!

9:00PM PST on the 21st.

Good lookin' out Mitch.  We'll have to make this crystal clear in the rules.

I'm going to add a time zone start time section to the top of the rules page tonight.
