The Game Is on the Table

Lá estava a minha conta do Steam, com uma quantidade de jogos que eu levaria pelo menos duas vidas saudáveis para completar. Em menos de um ano, eu gastei o que poderia ter sido a matrícula do meu filho imaginário em um bom colégio. Então por que eu não conseguia decidir o que jogar? Pior: por que eu não queria jogar nada?A verdade é que eu sinto falta do meu Super Nintendo. Lógico que ele tinha alguns jogos que até hoje são incríveis pra mim, como "Top Gear", mas não é só saudosismo. Naquela época, e é triste quando a gente finalmente começa a se referir ao passado assim, se você fosse jogar com alguém, a pessoa estaria no máximo a dois metros de distância.É estranho, considerando que hoje em dia eu falo mais com as pessoas por Whatsapp do que por telefone, mas eu sinto falta de gente. A experiência de jogar ali, presencialmente, com outra pessoa, transformava o jogo, nem que fosse pra agredir um amigo por perder um gol, ou então esconder o controle na hora de cobrar um pênalti.O máximo que você tem de proximidade nos dias de hoje é colocar um daqueles fones de controlador de voo, ligar para um amigo no Skype e ficar no seu quarto falando "sozinho", enquanto a sua família decide se te interna ou tenta te ajudar.Foi com esse incômodo que eu redescobri os jogos de tabuleiro. E foi lindo. Na época do colégio, não era tão incomum reunir a galera pra uma partida de "Imagem e Ação" capaz de destruir amizades. Eu só fui descobrir o quanto eu sentia falta disso muito tempo depois, numa partida disputadíssima de "Sueca" na faculdade.Isso serve pra mostrar duas coisas. A primeira: talvez eu leve jogos muito a sério. A segunda: outras pessoas podem transformar até o mais simples dos jogos em algo incrível.Um tempo depois, eu descobri todo um novo mundo de boardgames. Entre tudo que eu joguei, dois deles me fizeram voltar à uma época em que um real era MUITO dinheiro. "Zombicide" e "Munchkin". Como publicitário, eu não posso ficar vendendo jogos assim, de graça. MAS CARA! Que jogos.Só a possibilidade de poder juntar três amigos numa mesa que não fosse de bar já me agradava bastante. Poder juntar esses três amigos para matar zumbis, mesmo que sejam pequenas peças de plástico, era ainda melhor. Claro que eu não abandonei completamente o meu computador, afinal nós dois temos uma história de amor mais bonita que Crepúsculo.A diferença é que, hoje em dia, quando eu tenho a possibilidade de passar uma noite olhando pra uma tela ou uma noite comendo Doritos, desbravando calabouços e tentando sobreviver nas ruas imaginárias de um tabuleiro zumbi, eu sempre vou preferir Doritos.E aí, vamos jogar? Eu levo o biscoito

Commercials repeat in yahoo games. I can not get to the game table.?

I found that happening a lot in Yahoo Pool. The only soloution is to click 'Options' (at the left of the lounge window) and select 'small windows'. You do not get that big video advert, just a picture. The game page layout is slightly different, depending on which game you play, but usually the table size is identical. Cards are half size, backgammon board is smaller, pool table is identical, chess and literati are a better layout (if you have a small screen). The only other, highly technical, soloution is to edit the source code for the page, and physically delete the advert: not recommended unless you are a pro, and it may have unwanted side effects in future games.

did the games tables get a new look? they seem slower and have much more garbage on them...?

yes ,why does it have to say doubleclick all the time very annoying

Anyone have ideas for accesories on a gaming table?

Mood lighting. You hardly ever see it but a little bit of creative "stage lighting" can make tabletop battle scenery look a lot more interesting

you have to install spy sweeper or norton antivirus 2007 or zonealarm or pc cillin 2007 it will block pop ups

How to Stream Your TTRPG Show
When we decided to start streaming shows for The Redacted Files a year ago, I was nervous. Sure we know a lot about audio with five years of podcasting, but streaming and working with video was completely new. Most guides I found were written for streaming Video Game RPGS, which dont have the same requirements as a TTRPG, especially since our players are from all across America and Canada. So here is what I do to stream. A lot of this is hacky, but its a workflow that works for me! Plus its all free!**I do pay for two things, but theyre not required for streaming.Part 1: OverlaysThe first thing we are going to do is create an overlay for our stream. I suppose this isnt necessary, but it makes your stream look pretty and professional, allows you to share information, and makes you stand out a bit. I make all of my overlays in Powerpoint. This is because its easy, I get it for free through work, and I understand how it works. I do have PhotoShop, but I dont understand it well enough to make it work for me. However, any photo editing software is probably going to work. (I know Powerpoint isnt intended to be for photo editing. Its still what I use.)Tools I Use: PowerPoint, Images from OnlineYou can set this up however you want. I usually find art on UnSplash that is related to the game were running. Make sure you have the rights to the art that you use! It should be displayed on the site or on the image, just look for licensing information. I have started making overlays that have a transparent section in them so that the overlay is the top layer. This means everyones video will be the same size, even if the capture of the video isnt the same.Once youve decided on a picture, put it in Powerpoint and resize it to be the same size as a slide (or more accurately 1920x1080 pixels to match Twitch exactly). Then decide on the placement of your videos. Important things to remember: You might have a lot of information to show on your screen. Decide whats actually important. When we stream Gold Wings, Black Skies I have two overlays, one for combat and one for when were just roleplaying because the maneuver chart takes up a lot of space. Things like closed captions also take up space. Or if you want to display Roll20, the Twitch chatbox, current HP, all of this is taking up your real estate. Play around with format and dump anything that isnt important.For videos, Im a traditionalist and I like rectangles for the shape. I make a box about the size that I want the video to be and color it some color that doesnt match any other colors in the image. I also add the title of the stream and any other pieces that arent going to intersect with the final transparent area.Then I select everything and go to Arrange->Group. Once theyre grouped you can right click on the grouped images and save it as a picture.Load the new, new picture back into Powerpoint. Click on it and go to the Picture Format Tab. Click on Color->Set Transparent Color. Then select one of the boxes you added to the image. The areas where they were will become transparent.Now you can add anything that is going to appear over the video feeds. I usually let some of the name overlap. Ive also added flares to corners sometimes. This is also where you would want to add any frames that are going to be intersecting with the videos.For names, I add another shape, and select a good transparency that will make any font I use stand out. I add information for each feed like Player Name, Character Name, Player Pronouns, Character Pronouns, Twitter Handles. Add whatever is appropriate for you. Make sure your font is readable, especially when smaller.Once youre done you can select all, group the images, and save as a picture again. And you have an overlay!Part 2: Setting Up Your OBSNext we have to set up an OBS (Open Broadcaster Software) to create your video and broadcast it to Twitch. Theres a lot of options out there, but I use StreamLabs. It has a lot of integration into Twitch that makes things easy, and the first time I used OBS I got frustrated.Tools I Use: StreamLabs, TwitchStreamLabs has you login with a social media account, I sign in with my Twitch account. You do have to give some permissions over to allow StreamLabs to send the video to Twitch.My StreamLabs is already set up, but Ill guide you through the important parts! Scenes are your different views to display. I try to make one for when we want to take a break, and one for showing everyone. This is where the overlays from above come up! If you want to have one scene for narrative parts of the story and one for combat, that will allow you to have focus on your players when not needing to pay attention to something else on screen. It does require a bit more management on your end to switch between scenes. I also tend to keep a scene for each show were streaming, that way I dont have to rebuild each time. How you manage this is really up to you, whatever works with your system.Sources is where you manage anything that is going to be going into the stream. These sources are available in any stream. So the first thing I want to add is an overlay. The overlay is going to remain at the top for the most part, so I need to keep it at the top of the sources list. To do this we hit the button above Sources, and get an option for all of the types of sources available.We can choose to add our overlay by selecting Image. From there we can choose an existing source which is any image weve added before, or select the toggle at the bottom to add a new image. You name the image first (I frequently forget this step so a lot of my sources are named things like Image(1). You can rename it later, but its best to name it now to save time) and then are able to select the one you want to add from your computer like any standard file upload. You then make sure your picture covers the black rectangle, and then at the bottom click on the lock sign to lock the image in place. This will prevent you from accidentally moving the overlay around while rearranging everything else.Part 3: Adding your audio and videoNow that your OBS is ready to go, time to add your audio and video. This is the single most frustrating step involved.Tools I Use: StreamLabs, Twitch, ZoomFirst off, I lied at the beginning. Zoom costs money unless you dont need a lot of features. However, you can use Skype or Hangouts following these steps just as easily. However, Zoom has some great features, like being able to record audio and video of your calls- you can even have everyone on their own track. We use this as a backup for TRF, and its pretty useful!With that out of the way, the way to capture video to an OBS is to use Window Capture. This lets you pick one program running on your computer and stream what is showing on it at any given moment on the OBS. If the window changes sizes, that will cause you problems. If the order of people showing up changes, that will cause problems. Be mindful of your source at all times. First set Zoom to show all of the videos at once, this is the Gallery View.You add the Window Capture similar to how we added the overlay. Add a source, and select Window Capture->New Source. This will show your entire Zoom Window, which is not what we want.**Edit: My original instructions here were the most difficult way to accomplish this task, and BBWolfeVox and MRaichelson let me know about this much easier method. Thank you!To crop the video, select it so source is outlined by green lines, and hold down ALT key as you drag these edges to resize the window capture to just include the feed that you want.Once you have it cropped, you start again with adding a new window capture to get the next persons video. Dont do this until everyone has shown up for the call. Zoom will resize and move the video feeds as people appear and disappear and theres no point in doing all of that work, just to have to start over. Similarly, if you want the chat open during the call, do it before applying the cropping filters. This is also how you would add Roll20 to your stream.You can select the video feeds either by clicking on them, or by clicking on their name in the source list. Center them as needed in the correct frame. Remember, sources at the top of the list are on the top layer of the streamIf you want to add additional features to your stream, like subscribers or the chatbox, StreamLabs makes it easy to add those as sources as well, just add a source as normal and look to the right where the widgets are. Here Ive added the chatbox, which currently is transparent. You can change the appearance by clicking on the chatbox in sources, then clicking on the gear directly above.Part 4: Adding Closed CaptioningAccessibility is something were always trying to improve at on TRF, and this includes recently adding closed captioning to our feeds. Our CC is live and definitely not perfect, but we think its a great way to work on making our streams open to everyone!Tools I Use: Streamlabs, WebcaptionerMy instructions are based on this guide. For more detailed instructions, best practices, and troubleshooting help, please check it out!Have every member of your stream go to Click on one of the buttons that says Start Captioning. You will need to be using Chrome. You will be taken to a big empty screen like this:Hit start captioning to have it start transcribing what you say. Make sure its working and associated with the correct mic! You might need to give your mic permissions.Once you can see your transcript click on the person icon in the bottom right corner, go to settings.In settings click on the experiment option in the sidebar and search for share to add. If the experiments option doesnt appear, click on the other tabs until it does appear.While here, go to appearance and set the font size to 3.Now close settings and click on the little radio tower next to the stop captioning button and you will get a button to make a link. You will want a random link (unless you can manage one of the custom links)Get the link from each player each time you start streaming. Everyone will need to leave the browser open until you are done recording. It will record anything you say, so everyone will want to mute their mic, not Zoom, when they dont want to be heard.You will add the captioning link from each player by clicking on sources, then selecting Browser Source. You can manage the appearance by selecting the source from the list, and then selecting Settings.Part 5: Going LiveNow youre all set up, its time to go live!Tools I Use: Streamlabs, Twitch, BufferIf possible I would test this a with another Twitch account that doesnt have followers, making sure that everything looks and sounds ok! All you really need to do is click the Go Live! button at the bottom of the page. There is a pop up to select the game and other information you want to be included. I recommend having the name of the game youre playing first, and then other details. You can also link your twitter account tweet as you go live!Since I usually manage social media, I also use Buffer to schedule tweets that will be sent soon after our planned start point. Theres a few drawbacks to this, mostly that if you are late or delayed, the tweet wont be accurate. Since I have a few accounts that I usually want to tweet from, I can schedule my tweets earlier in the day with any extra details, instead of last minute while Im also setting up everything else. This is one thing that really helped reduce my stress!While youre live, you can keep an eye on the chat from the StreamLabs console, as well as manage your scenes. Remember that the stream is on a delay, so viewers will be responding on a delay. If you have a lot of people in chat you should probably find someone to help you moderate so that you dont have to split attention from the game.One thing to note that I have messed up on! You cant remove the internal microphone source (Mic/Aux), so if you are on a break, the hosts audio will still be transmitted. You can mute it in the console, but remember to unmute when you come back! Your players will still be able to hear you as normally, but the stream will not.Part 6: Post Game WorkIf you dont want to do anything after your game, then youre done! Hit the stop button and go on with your life! However if you want to do any post-broadcast editing or to upload it to YouTube, heres what I do.Tools I Use: Twitch, OpenShot Video Editor, YouTube, AudacityDownload the Video first! You can do this from the Twitch website under video producer. You can also delete other videos from here. They stay up for two weeks, so make sure to grab it before then. If you dont manage to do so, you can always use your Zoom recording instead. It wont be pretty, but its there!Next, does it need editing work? You can trim chatter at the beginning of the stream or bio breaks using something like OpenShotVideo Editor. This tool works pretty well, but be aware that re-exporting any videos is going to take forever.If you need to clean up the audio, you can drop the mp4 into Audacity, a free audio editing software. Dont delete anything, because your video and audio will be out of sync, but you can run Noise Reduction on the audio to get rid of things like static or hums. Then drag the new audio track back into OpenShot and delete or mute the original track.YouTube makes uploading very easy. You can also add videos to your playlist. This will take a long time as well, and processing takes even longer. However! You can push publish right away and the video will publish as soon as its done.Part 7: Youve Done it!With that you should be all set with making and streaming an episode!

There are minor tweaks to the rules, but it is basically the same game. Likewise, the companion Internal Security rulebook uses the same system, though there is extensive new material there for BLUE-Clearance IntSec missions. Neither is mechanically complex, and both place unique emphasis on the Gamemaster's supremacy. Every rule in both books exists as a non-mandatory advisory to the GM's incontrovertible authority....Troubleshooters, in particular, adapts the XP GM Screen's "mission blender," a collection of tables that lets you generate an entire mission randomly with the roll of a mere five dozen or so d20s. Troubleshooters also includes Ken Rolston's classic introductory PARANOIA mission "Robot Imana-665-C" as well as a fine new mission by Gareth Hanrahan, "The Quantum Traitor."---Allen Varney, 04-16-2010"If you have Paranoia XP, you can play Paranoia: Troubleshooters - the mechanics and content are 90% identical. The only substantial difference is that Troubleshooters returns to the old Treason Point system, with the more complex "Treason Damage" mechanics reserved for Straight games....As for rules for mission structure, Troubleshooters is pretty much the same as XP, apart from some expanded GM advice and some fun tables for randomly mission generation (which sometimes even produce sensible results). "---David J ProkopetzOther comments made in the thread indicate that the official development blog has many insights into the changes.
