  • Captains Night 6/17 - 8PM Central

    Yay! Another Captains Night! :)

    --
    Anyone familiar with our rules is welcome to join us tonight at 8PM Central for a curated, password-protected event (I'll post the password in another post below just before 8PM Central). Here is a rundown of the event:

    Fellowship:
    Throughout all of Captains Night, use the player name by which TGNS regulars best know you. Captains Night is a special time to come together with known regulars and friends.


    Playing BOTH Rounds:
    Don't play unless you can reliably stay for the entire map (mid-map emergency? tell your team and bail. dinner and/or friends showing up does not an emergency make).

    This expectation is important to participants, and admins protect it.


    Taking a Break:
    Each map begins with a two-minute break for food, bathroom, and fellowship. Except for these breaks, don't AFK during the event.

    After each break, the Captains are identified for the current map.


    Becoming a Captain:
    TGNS regulars known to participants are invited to Captain and personalize team selections on Captains Night. The first player to volunteer as Captain selects his opponent Captain. This selection should prioritize gameplay quality, while the team-picking selections should prioritize competitive strength.


    Opting In:
    Player opt-ins open up once both Captains are ready. If you miss the opt-in window for a given map, speak up and we'll get you playing on the next map for sure (if not immediately).


    Selecting Teams:
    As team selections begin, listen for instruction. Only Captains speak during team selection -- text chat is always available to everyone (and, of course, voicecomm opens up to all players once teams are formed).


    Gameplay:
    Captains Night is everyone's curated opportunity to apply our most satisfying teamwork, communicative tactics, and great fellowship. Try your hardest, but have fun together!

            Shadowplay. I re-encoded to a smaller .mp4 and went to upload it to replay but it said it doesn't start between the two times required. I didn't use TGNS helper so outside of re-editing the video it won't sync up with the others.

            I download OBS but it keeps recording black screen with sound only and a message about "no sources set" even after I've selected NS2 application or Window recording. A source never appears in the list for some reason.

              Do you know any way for me to start Shadowplay's recording with a mouse click on a UI element somewhere (as opposed to a hotkey)?

                No, it appears to be hotkey only start start/stop recording. OBS looks like it supports the hardware option for encoding, which I would start using overshadow play if I can get OBS working.

                  Well, you're not the first person to use Shadowplay, and I want to add TRH support for it, but I can only reliably click something to start/stop the recording. My catching of other programs' hotkeys proved to be unreliable. :(

                    Have you tried setting your source to your monitor. It what I do to record and I never have issues with it.

                      Yes. It never shows anything in the source window no matter what I pick :(

                        Have you set up a scene first? You need to do that before you can set up sources or they would not appear in the list. Right click on scenes box and just make one, the name does not matter. Then right click on sources's box, select add and add it that way. Then try and record and see what happens.

                          This worked. Not sure why 'global sources' didn't do it. Thanks!
