Install OBS
Spend 2 years learning how to operate OBS
Buy new PC because your hardware is out of date
Still have no idea what you're doing

But honestly, I barely know what I'm doing with streaming either. I've got a setup that works for recording video.

Seriously. I'm 100% lost.
If I can get some sort of full walkthru, literally step by step, so I can start livestreaming, that'd be great. Cause I wanna livesteam and game for everyone, but have literally NO IDEA how to get this shit going. I love  you all. Help me. :(

I bought a game boy player for the gamecube about 3 weeks ago

Just as a heads up, the GBP handles controller input in a really really wonky way, so if you suddenly find yourself unable to do something you can do consistently on a real GBA, it's probably not your fault. That happened to me when I tried to play Metroid: Zero Mission on my somewhat recently-acquired GBP (that said, my playthroughs of that aren't the most casual).

There is some software called GameBoy Interface that does an amazing job of driving that hardware. I don't have access to it personally just yet (I can't run homebrew on my GameCube at the moment), but I've used it on a friend's system. It's quite good.

Naturally, stuff like this isn't likely to improve your experience with stuff like Advance Wars, but it might help with more action-y stuff. :)

I bought a game boy player for the gamecube about 3 weeks ago, and was mucking around with a few games, I've been buying loose carts over the years but never bothered to play due to not being able to find a NEW battery for the gba sp. Only batteries available are "new" batteries, aka, been sitting on a shelf for 15 years and cant hold a charge for more than an hour.

But now, I can just use the good ole gamecube.

I was a pretty big fan of the original, but the difficulty of the final mission caused me to...abandon the game for over a decade before somehow finishing that impossibility.

Either way, decided since I bought 2 some unspecified time ago, why not.

This time however, I wasn't a fan of how you unlocked characters in the first game, some ~3 entire playthroughs of the campaign to unlock everybody, and the best character can't even be used in war room (think one off challenge maps, but theres a lot of em, and they're really fun). All the effort for...only vs mode, ehh.

THEY CHANGED IT IN THE SEQUEL, so you can use any of the crazy OP unlockable characters in war room...

Caveat..."beat the campaign with an overall rank of S"

... first playthrough of the game, to unlock that character, needs to be S rank...

...So, I did it, and now I'm posting here.

A little anti climactic but I don't feel like writing another essay on another old game I beat. It's a great game, wish they'd make another one instead of chumping out another fire emblem, but I had fun. Maybe I'll tackle the DS game sometime in the future.

In the meantime, I have far exceeded my expectations for actually working on my backlog this year. Probably the most games I've personally beaten in a year in my life.

Does anyone have a card that would be an upgrade that theyd be willing to part with?

I don't. Sorry!

Also, feel free to create new topics if you have any questions like this. It'll make your posts a little more visible. :)

I heard about this stuff a few years ago, and always wanted to try it...found some for $10 a bottle...pricey.

Let me just say a few things.

This sucker is ~18% abv...and it's an IPA...and it says ages well...and for connoisseurs of hops...

-high gravity for ipa is fine, but that high I can only see working out with stouts, so fail number one
-"ages well" it's an ipa...they don't age at all, I've had a good few barrel aged ipas and they are all horrible, this not even being 3 months old, also horrible
-claims to be extremely hoppy, it may have been made with a metric shitton of hops, but the alcohol overpowers it to the extent where it almost tastes like mint listerine somehow, I get NO hop flavor at all from this beer

Only buy this thing for the novelty of drinking an 18% beer, I got about 70% done with it and it put me to sleep, dumped the remainder down the drain the following morning. The only positive thing I have to say about this beer is that for an 18% beer, the alcohol isn't THAT bad, it feels less aggressive than the founders DKML at 14%. The difference, DKML was a take on a craft malt liquor, MALT liquor, the flavor profile of that style fits 10+% abv a lot better than an IPA ever will, and that DKML was actually very good, would buy again.

I honestly just haven't been drinking much lately.

Ive been putting beer on the backburner for wine recently. Finding stuff that actually fits my palette and trying everything in said range.

If you know anything that will please someone who enjoys the flavors of a Malbec or Rioja, or to a lesser extent Chainti I'm down to try. I like dry wine, and I've really grown to enjoy the sensation of tannins in the drink.

"This is not my third take" lol.

The distortion he adds to his voice, holy hell. The transition the first time he did that caught me off guard. I don't find the music very interesting, and I laughed at the "solo", but man those vocals.
Song of the Day / So Hyang - Bridge Over Troubled Water.

So Hyang is a gospel singer in korea. After surviving cervical cancer at 20 and being rendered infertile, her mission is to use her voice to comfort people going through difficult times. She is sometimes known as the "Korean Mariah Carey". I could keep writing for ages about how much I love her singing, but instead, just listen.

Bonus: Here's another track titled "Everyone" or sometimes "It's You Folks". It's an older korean song, and the lyrics are about wanting to be there to comforts someone and give them strength just the way the audience gives the singer strength from being there. So Hyang has remarked that it was one of the hardest songs she's ever had to sing.

And finally: My personal favorite performance of so Hyang. Arirang Alone. This song is a more modern interpretation of Arirang, a folk song in korea, and kind of an unofficial national anthem. Arirang itself has hundreds of regional variations with slightly different harmonies and lyrics, but the melody is more or less the same. This version was written in the 90's and has rewritten the lyrics to represent the desire for both koreas to be united one day. It's written as a love song, presumably between a man and a woman, quoting wikipedia "According to one legend, the name is derived from the story of a bachelor and a maiden who fell in love while picking camellia blossoms near the wharf at Auraji. In one version of the story, the bachelor cannot cross the Auraji to meet the maiden because the water is too high, and they sing a song to express their sorrow. In another version of the story, the bachelor attempts to cross the Auraji and drowns, singing the sorrowful song after he dies."

The vocals in Arirang Alone give me chills every time I hear it.

Wait, I didn't post this yet? Let's fix that, shall we?

Here's the album version (audio only):

And here's a really entertaining live performance that he did for EMGTV (which exemplifies why I freaking love Dev):

Those freaking vocals. Holy shit.

Mindless Self Indulgence is always a good choice. ;)

Seriously though, yeah, MSI makes good shit. Additionally, my last three (well, technically four...) cards (680, 2 x 980, 1080 Ti) have all been EVGA and I've had very good experiences with all them as well. My old 680 and both 980s are still being as daily drivers to this day. I don't think the individual manufacturer makes as much of a difference now as it used to, to be honest. The main difference between them that I see are the specific coolers they use and how aggressive the factory overclocking is on models that feature that.

The 1070 Ti and 1080 would both be very solid choices. If the 1070 Ti is in your price range, go for it. If you can find a refurbed or clearance 1080 for a better prices, you're going to get slightly better performance (we're talking 5% or less, so don't break your back for it) out of it (bear in mind that they're no longer manufacturing the 1080).
