So, I actually slept pretty well last night, I was almost surprised. That was good for me. And I woke up surrounded by cats, but that’s really nothing too terribly new. They pretty much both come to bed with me every night. Either one or the other, or sometimes both don’t come in right away, but they’re there in the morning/afternoon.
That’s not a bad thing, I suppose. Although Danzig’s tendency to walk around on me annoys me sometimes. At least they don’t both do that. That would be a problem.
Anyways, I talked about progress. I think I figured out how to get my headset working correctly. The only problem is, it takes away one of the main reasons that I bought it in the first place. That is, the microphone seems to work just fine if I have the headset plugged in. It doesn’t seem to work right when it’s just running off the battery. I could be wrong though, I did a few different things to try and get it to work.
Actually, I didn’t mention this, but the new headset did the same thing. One of the things I did was to upgrade the firmware on the headset, but that made it worse. It kept dropping the connection to the base, like my old headset would do sometimes. But this was every few minutes. So, I think I tanked that headset.
On the bright side, the old one doesn’t have that problem. No upgrading the firmware on that one, that’s for sure. I was very unhappy when it didn’t work right, and more unhappy when I made it worse. But, for now, I seem to have solved the problem, I think.
Of course, having it plugged in all the time takes away from the whole wireless thing. I mean, I can still use it wirelessly, it’s just that microphone won’t work right. At least, from what I can tell.
So, that was a fair bit of my day today, testing and doing stuff and testing again. I thought I had it figured out, but I did two things at once, and the one that seems to have worked was keeping it plugged in. I mean, I’ve been watching the microphone meter in OBS, and it hasn’t cut out at all since I did that. I would notice if it did cut out, because I would have to hit the mute button, and there would be nothing coming from the mic, which there is right now.
Wow. That’s a lot of talk about my headset. I guess I have all I need to start streaming. Now I just gotta decide when to start. Probably soon. I suppose I will be working on Final Doom: Plutonia Experiment. I still need to work on an overlay for the stream, but I can work on that in pieces. More important to actually start streaming and kinda get an audience going before all that, really.
So, that’s going to be coming up, and you will be seeing more about that in the very near future. I’m just going to have to be patient about having viewers, because it’s not going to happen right away.
I plan on putting the streams on YouTube, since they don’t stay around forever in Twitch’s VOD section. That way, I can work on an audience on YT as well, though you know how well that’s turned out so far.
Of course, it doesn’t help that I haven’t put a video on YouTube in over a year, probably, by now. The vBlog videos and my Sanctuary video don’t count, since those are on another account, and mostly just for display on the site here. I mean, you can find them on YouTube, but you probably don’t really need to.
So, what am I going to do for the rest of the day? I’m not sure yet, at least partially. I do plan on having a few drinks tonight, so I don’t know if I will be playing anything or not. I may try, we’ll have to see. Will it be Fallout 4? Probably, but you never know. I have so many other games, and so many installed, that you just can’t tell.
Maybe I’m in a rut with my gaming, I keep playing FO4, but I do really like it, so I guess it’s not all a waste. And it will be good fun to stream that once we get to that point. I mean, I do plan on doing that, though the random crashing will be a little bit of a problem, but nothing that can’t be worked through.
I guess that’s about all I have right now, unless you want to know that I emptied and filled the dishwasher. That’s about the only other thing that I’ve done today. I’ve mostly been messing with the headsets. Will I be back tonight? I don’t know.
You know what I should do? I should get drunk and watch wrestling. Then I can drunktweet random wrestling stuff. Of course, I’m not sure where I left off last, so I may have to fudge that a little bit.
Okay, I suppose I’m done for now. I am off.
