ZapCOnline2020 - This Saturday!
« on: April 19, 2020, 07:42:32 pm »
Hey all, gone nuts yet? Missing that bro-to-Bro circlejerky contact? Bemeoaning the fact your ZapCon vacation got cancelled this year?

Well, join me from the Casa de Yots gameroom, DeLuSioNaL29 from DeLuSioNalís Arcade, MikeA from the Alpha Centauri gameroom and PBJ from his Couch Filled With Farts for ZapCOnline2020!

Basically, bring your webcam and favorite brew and join us in a Zoom hangout for an hour or so just to chat, shoot the breeze, and maybe get a virtual tour of everyoneís setup as well as see some new products in the world of arcade innovation!

Weíre thinking 8 PM Central this Saturday (which would have been the first day of ZapCon), for an hour or so!

Iíll post more details later, but I wanted to gauge interest. Post here if you think youíre interested!

Shoutout to Jimmah for proposing this! I think it will be fun. Let us know!

One like the one you used to use when you did that sexy webcam stuff to pay for the CNC.

For those that can't make it, I can look into hosting the Meetup on my YouTube channel. That way people can join the chat without having to fuss with webcams.

Yots if you're available on Tues or Thu of this week we can do some tests with Zoom. Anyone know if Zoom is free now?  I think it limits the number of simultaneous people or something. Not sure.

LMK.

My son uses discord. It is free.

He doesn't understand why people are using Zoom.

It is also more flexible.

He also said you can participate on Zoom and Discord without a webcam if you want to.

Maybe old people shouldn't be running this.

We can post when it goes Live on Zoom here.  Just make sure you don't post the link or password here (use PMs) because of stupid bots.

The actual "Live to air" feed on YouTube will probably start 30 minutes later.  It will probably take us that long to get our crap together in Zoom.

I spend 5 hours a day, minimum, on zoom now. You can call in, use your computer, or use an app. You can be a voyeur and just listen in, or participate with mic/Webcam. Nobody uses discord unless they're exchanging Pokťmon or illegal drugs.

Until the apocalypse descended upon us discord had like a bazillion more users than Zoom. Even with the giant surge Zoom got from schools and old men, discord still has more users.  :dunno

I don't use any of it so I am no expert.

Discord has is where all the porn went after the great tumbler porn purge, thus it's larger install base.  Or at least that's what I've been told anyway.  I've never used either for any significant amount of time so I don't really have a clue which one is more user friendly, ect.

Is there a URL for the footage?  Asking for a friend.

I'm glad this is planned.  Let me know what you chuckle heads decide.  Unless I'm not invited due to 'that Facebook incident'.   ;D  Also I haven't personally used it but I have heard House Party is a good app for this application.

This sounds like fun. My family has been using Zoom for occasional "meetups" so we can all stay in touch. I have an iPad with the app and it's pretty easy to use. I'll have to see if I can find a clever way to set up something in the gameroom to get more of that Zapcon vibe going.  :)

Just to throw another tool on the pile, I recently came across https://whereby.com/
It's free for groups up to 4 and runs directly in the browser with no plugins or whatnot.

I haven't used it myself yet, but it seems pretty popular among users in a Discord server I'm in for people who play Magic: The Gathering via webcam.

I just dusted off my sony hdr-hc3 camcorder. It is 1080i. It has HDMI out. It has a nice big lens that would work better in low light than a webcam.

Why do streaming cards for HDMI cost 100 dollars or more? Is there a cheaper solution or should I just buy a webcam?

Don't own a tablet. I have no need for a device that is too big to be a phone and too small to be a PC, and less capable than both of those things.

I'm running 2x logitech c920 webcams on my stream. They're pretty affordable now-a-days, i think you can get them at bestbuy for like $70.  They do 1080p at 30fps, but you can tweak with the settings to get it to pump out 60fps.  They're great, regarded as a good all-around solution for streaming broadcasts in terms of quality and price.

Well I couldn't buy a webcam anywhere and Amazon would ship me one a month from now.

I am using my daughter's old laptop. It has a webcam.

I got it setup and everything works.

Alpha Centuri is ready for a party.

Why in the world would you do this?  Youíre going to split the conference in half.

1) Not everyone has Zoom.
2) Not everyone wants to participate in the video conference.
3) Non ByOACers can just be a fly on the wall and chat on YouTube.
4) We can replay any cool gameroom tours we see at a later date on YouTube.

The audience won't be split. If anything it will add more people.

I didn't know this was going to be a live YouTube ad.

I figured someone would post it to YouTube afterward.

I am out. I just wanted to shoot the ---steaming pile of meadow muffin--- with my bros.

Diverting people to your YouTube channel is a dick move. You can do it without me.

Look, the **official** group Meetup is on Zoom. All are welcome. Anyone wants to pal around on YouTube, go for it. Not sure why non-BYOACers would want to watch our Zoom circle jerk, but more power to them.

Letís put it this way, if you donít want to appear on camera with Zoom and you werenít planning on going to ZapCon, then this event isnít intended for you. This was meant for those of you who were going to travel to ZapCon but couldnít because of current events, plus those of you who are BYOACers and have always wanted to come but couldnít and want to be a part of the fun (like Howard). I really donít give a ---fudgesicle--- if youíre J0hnnyBideoGamez69 and you want to peek in. That wasnít the intent behind this. You can watch if you want, but I donít care on way or another.

Easy there, cranky pants.  No one's doing anything for "ads".  There are a lot of people interested in this hobby whom I'd like to participate in chat.  They aren't invited to the Zoom meeting, it will get too cluttered.

What's the difference if you record it live and it gets posted instantly .vs recording it and posting it later?  It saves me the trouble of reuploading it.  :dunno:

Lastly, I thought you were OK to be on YouTube?  (I asked beforehand via group text).  I thought I was pretty transparent as to why it would be a good idea.  I even cited an example of what I was thinking here:

If you really have an issue with it, I can cancel the extra YouTube feed. I'm not aiming to upset or piss anyone off. Just thought it would be cool to have the regulars chat and participate as well.

Canceling the extra YouTube feed would be good for me.

To be completely fair you did ask if we minded being on YouTube. It is my fault for not knowing that meant live with a bunch of randos chatting.

This was supposed to be a BYOAC ZapCon thing.

I don't want to have a big fight about this. I just want to get drunk with my friends tonight.

And its captain drunky pants not cranky pants. And sometimes captain drunky no pants.

I just want to point out, for those who are not familiar with Zoom, you donít need to ďhaveĒ zoom installed on a PC. They have a web browser interface that doesnít require an install.
You also donít need to participate by video or audio feed if you donít want to. You can turn on your mic or camera separately from each other. Or not if you just want to lurk like a weirdo.
Zoom is actually really convenient.

Maybe we can play a guessing game on the call today. Guess who brought the Vectrex to ZapCon. Here is your (only) clue:

It wasn't anything like the real thing, but it was lots of fun. Thank you to everyone who participated. I love you guys.

Mikeapalooza will take place in late October. Everyone is invited. I am conveniently located in the middle of the country.

I want to thank you guys again for setting this up.  I had a great time.  Sorry I went dark the last quarter but I didn't realize I had gone dark until Yots asked where I was.  Like I said I have been working 12 hour / 7 day shifts for the past month (why my construction company thinks we are essential :dunno ) and last weekend was my first weekend that I have had off.  I must have grabbed my iPad when I dozed off and turned off the video and sound.

I want to applaud everyone for their game room tours.  I also want to thank Jawhn for his background memes.  I couldn't keep a straight face.  I cannot wait to see you guys in person next year.   :cheers:

Yes, thanks to Jimmah for the idea and Yots for the setup.

I had a great time and it helped with the disappointment of not having a real ZapCon.

I have to admit Iím having a hard time finding my work motivation today. I think Iíll dig into TeknoParrot for a challenge. If anyone has some information that would help me get setup and running Iíd appreciate a PM.

Now I think Iíll let the bear go back into hibernation until he is needed again. Thanks to PBJ for the picture inspiration.

It was definitely a pleasure getting to hang out with everyone this weekend. It's nice to finally be able to put some faces to the names that I've seen on this forum for all these years. My dad has been having some health issues and unfortunately I wasn't going to be able to make Zapcon this time around due to all the uncertainty surrounding that. Of course COVID-19 ended up screwing things up for everyone else too which sux. I'm really hoping that next year will be a "go" so I can get a chance to hang out with a lot of you in person.  :)

I enjoyed myself.  Everyone seemed to be in a good mood and that always makes for a good time.  All of those game room tours gave me some ideas.... I'll be posting some pics once I get things cleaned out and maybe you guys can give me some advice on how to do my arcade room. 

Unless, heaven forbid, someone else falls ill in the family or I've become homeless or something I'll be there.  I don't drink, so I'm sure to be the Ö...something.... of the party.   :afro:

I had a great time too! I couldn't believe how many people we had onscreen at once! I took a snapshot at one point (not everyone will be there since people kept joining and leaving, etc).

We definitely need to do this again sometime during this quarantine.

So when's the next one happening?  Last time was fun.

I pay for the unlimited time/users feature now, so I don't mind hosting unless Yots wants to do the honors again?

Is Friday night good?

I can try but no promises.  If you want to get the word out you might want to venture out of the meet up forum or pm some people.

Maybe wait for another week further out?  It's pretty short notice to organize.

I'm a distinct maybe, depending on how the scheduling shakes out; sad that I missed the last one. 

Mostly, I'm posting this so I get easier thread update reminders.   :)
