Frequently Asked Questions

How can I contact you?

My email is listed on my YouTube page to avoid spam. You can also ping me on Discord at TyroneSama#3292, or just catch me during a stream. I’m almost always willing to answer questions.

When do you stream?

I currently have no schedule. My sleep is really shit and drifts around mostly at random, so I can’t ever guarantee I’ll be awake or lucid for a given time. It’s chaos theory around here. Use Twitch notifications or keep an eye on Discord—sorry.

What equipment do you use?

  • CPU: Intel i7 4790
  • GPU: ZOTAC GTX 1060 6GB
  • RAM: random trashgarbage
  • Storage: random trashgarbage
  • Mouse: Zowie FK1
  • Keyboard: CM Storm Quickfire Rapid (Cherry MX Brown)
  • Cameras: 2x Logitech C922x (desk), 1x Logitech C930e (room)
  • Mic: Behringer XM8500 (desk), Audio-Technica AT2020 XLR (room)
  • Listening: Beyerdynamic DT770 (80 Ohm), Behringer UMC404, Lepai LP-2020TI, Micca PB42X
  • Gamepad: Xbox Elite Controller

None of this is an endorsement, do your damn research.

What software do you use?

I capture video and stream using OBS Studio, and edit in Vegas 14 (though I’m learning Premiere). For most voiceover or broadcast work, I use reaplugs and Tonmann DeEsser through JBridge: for more complex audio stuff, I use a wide variety of garbage in REAPER.

What’s with your eyes? You look tired.

I was born without eyelid muscles! I’ve had a few corrective surgeries that basically rigged my eyebrows up to my eyelids using a muscle graft: that’s how I open and close my eyes now. You’ll notice the way my eyebrows bob when I blink if you’re paying attention. The workaround isn’t perfect, but it’s definitely better than nothing.

What happened to Elsword?

I don’t play Elsword anymore. It’s an awful game that was doomed from the start by an abusive payment model and the PvE/PvP divide. It stopped being fun, and I stopped playing. If you want to hear me talk about this in a little more depth, try this.

Where’s the Rena folder?

lol

What StepMania theme do you use?

I use a slightly modified version of Til Death, the default theme included with Etterna. Poke around in metrics.ini if you want to modify your combo display and/or hit position like mine.

What StepMania noteskin do you use?

I use DivideByZero, the default noteskin included with Etterna.

Where do you get your StepMania packs?
