EW Burning The Midnight Oil - Building a Better Stream

June 8, 2018

I just finished burning some midnight oil Thursday night to finish tooling away and building the conversion to StreamLabs OBS from OBS classic. I've used it since I started streaming on Picarto in 2015/ 2014. OBS stopped supporting it in early 2017 or something like that, but it kept running strong and faithfuly for me till early this week. They must have updated finaly in such a way that killed all the widgets, alerts and chatbox functions for me. It was time to upgrade. 

I discovered this was my only option Thursday morning just an hour or two before my Drawing Request Show stream. Well I threw together something in a allergy-med fueled haze and managed to do some sort of stream Thursday afternoon. It was pretty bad. Not only was the stream suddenly a hash job of ghetto proportions but I could not draw for the life of me due to 'non drowsy' allergy medicine. But most folks were super supportive and I really appreciate that.

Needless to say I wasn't proud of myself tho. And will refrain from any more Allergy medicine. Its run its course as I write this for the most part. I also worked late into the night getting Stream Labs OBS built just as good as the original stream, and even polished/ improved in many ways! The wheels are back, the draws are back, and everything else viewers come to expect. See folks for all the sauce on the final Drawing Request Show for this week!  2pmEasternTime only on twitch.tv/eryckwebb

The Draws are ready to rock n roll.

( Depending on how I feel in the morning, I may stream some upgrade production work! )
