I don’t understand the need to use mixer or twitch we literately had no luck yet you keep going back to it. I just had a loading screen and nothing else and I do have a 6meg line so if it wants more than that it can go screw itself.


#611

we using discord


#612

ARG! It’s Thursday!!! Flip, I almost forgot. Quickly downloading Discord…


#613

Messed up the discord installation, and now my pc won’t boot. Joy :expressionless:

Have fun!


#614

Greg tried Twitch and the lag was simply too long.

Then @Donisia reminded us that we should be using Discord itself. We switched to that after we finished that first game.

Sorry for not being more communicative… we were all struggling to get the thing to work.

I feel your frustration Waco. And, for what it’s worth, I agree. Jackbox Games are bloody fantastic for multiplayer fun, but it only works when everyone gets to see the main game screen at the same time. It’s especially good for games at home with the mates when everyone is bored with Cards Against Humanity and the beers have been flowing. But it can only work for MEWMEs if we have a way to push the game screen to everyone with as little delay as possible. And for that, because of where we are, even Mixers’ FTL service is kak.

For games that don’t need to have a shared screen, it’s all good, but for Jackbox specifically the solution for future evenings is to go straight into a Discord session and share the screen there - it worked beautifully (thanks Donsie!) Twitch, Mixer and probably YouTube just aren’t going to work for this unless we get ingest servers closer to home. Hopefully one day.

Thanks to those who did stick around and joined the game on Discord - was a lot of fun.
