I’ve been on break from streaming (other than Beyond the Veil) for at least as long as I’ve been on break from the blog. A couple days ago, I finally got around to running a short test stream. I put off adding it to the blog partly because I’m slightly annoyed by it. Not the stops and starts – that was expected for a test stream. But the other things I noted while watching it later. My headset really is dying and not helping the sound quality, settings need tweaking, some UI in game should have been moved…I had weird camera placement since I forgot I slouch like mad when I’m tired. It was also laggy, and I hate that.
Thing is, all of that is part of what made it hard to get back in at all. I’m probably not as picky as some, but I spent a good chunk of hours adjusting things in my preview window before I went live. Trying to make sure everything looked right. Like blogging, if I’m going to stream I want it to be the best quality I can manage. I don’t like looking at it later and seeing something I missed.
