Frequently Asked Questions

wait, someone is actually reading this?

Thanks for reading this! You are now part of a small, elite club of people who actually take the time to look around before inadvertently wasting my time. You're cool.


How can I contact you?

My business email is listed on my YouTube page. You can also hit me up on Twitter, 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?

My current schedule is listed on my Twitch page.

What equipment do you use?

I use an i7 4790 and GTX 970, driving a BenQ XL2411, Asus VS228H-P, and a garbage postage-stamp monitor I got as a hand-me-down. My keyboard is a CM Storm Quickfire Rapid, with MX Brown switches, and my mouse is a Zowie FK1. Mic's an AT2020, run through a Focusrite Scarlett Solo. I use a Logitech C920 for my main facecam, and a Logitech C922x for my handcam.

What software do you use?

I capture video and stream using OBS Studio, and edit in Vegas 14. 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 HUD widgets do you use in Reflex Arena?

My main HUD is mostly default widgets and curtHUD, with Brandon's Awards and Brandon's Killfeed for polish. My race speedometer is hacked out of CurtHUD, with an accelmeter hacked out of the PHGP.tv ReflexRun HUD.

What Reflex Arena servers do you host?

Check reflex.tyronesama.moe for replays and direct connect links.

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 a modified version of wafles3 with DivideByZero's holds and mines: get it here.

Where do you get your StepMania packs?

Here, courtesy of the FFR forums.
