    Default Retro Twitch Stream

    Hey there! I know there are a zillion and a half of these out there already, but I just started getting my feet wet with Twitch streaming and thought it would be of particular interest to this community since I'm streaming original software through original hardware. It isn't quite as clear as just ripping directly from an emulator, but I think there's a genuine quality to the method that more than makes up for that. For anyone acquainted with Twitch already, I'd love to get your feedback, for anyone else who wants to watch me tackle Turbografx-16 games on title at a time before moving on to Saturn and what have you, feel free to tune in too: https://www.twitch.tv/retronicksstream

    I breifly checked out your videos and you sound pretty good. I would suggest getting a web cam for broadcasts, alot more fun especially when the viewers can see what you are doing.

    you can check out my stream here: https://www.twitch.tv/bb_hood99

    Also I would suggest signing up for twitch turbo, or else twitch deletes your videos every 2 weeks.

    Genuine PCE casts aren't common, will have to take a peek some time.

    Awesome sauce . I just did a "speedrun" of Fantasy Zone. I put it in quotes because I boned up my first attempt and the end boss was anything but "speedy".

    The newest PC I've got lying around here is from '06 and is still running XP XD. Everything else is Mac. Much appreciated regardless though.

    Thanks for the tips! I figure once I get going for a bit I'll get a decent webcam and hook into this thing. I'm capturing the footage through an old Canopus ADVC-110 which only works with my ancient Mac so I can't run OBS. If I get them both going through Twist Cam I could make it work, but then there's the challenge of getting an "ok" webcam for a 10-year-old box, or finding a new capture solution to jack my TG-16 and other consoles into.

    Good call on Twitch Turbo. I'm recording everything locally here, but it would make more sense to have that stuff on the channel too.

    What are you using to capture from your hardware? The picture looks great.

    So far Ive just been using emulators, then opening them in OBS. So I havent been using a capture card.
    Once I get my new computer setup I will be streaming PS4 using a elgato hd60.
    Elgato has a capture card more for retro gaming (Game Capture HD) and there is a Retro Gaming Adapter (composite & S-video input to the card) for sale on the elgato website. I plan to get one of these Game Capture HD at some point. There is a compatibility list which shows the systems that the card supports, but turbo grafx isnt mentioned. I dont know if this is an oversight or not: https://help.elgato.com/customer/por...re-hd-supports

    I saw that sucker. The "retro adapter" is basically an RCA input so it could definitely work for the Turbo CD or Booster enabled TG-16. I was considering that one but I really like playing on a tube and it only has HDMI output. That said, it would be nice to be able to stream over OBS and not have to mess around with my old Mac Pro. Curse my old Canopus box!

    If we're talking about capture devices, I got one thing to contribute towards that. If you're doing retro and don't give a damn about HD, check out the infamous dazzle device. I got mine for ten bucks on ebay and it supports composite and s-video inputs. Native driver support in Linux and I think the quality is good enough. Any capture device that supports HD is magically over $100, I have no idea why. I don't truly believe this hardware is inherently that expensive. People keep buying this shit sure enough so that price won't drop for a while I gather.

    So having hardware to grab your analogue signal from a game console is the easy part. The trick is solving the wiring situation so you can have output go to both the device and your TV.
