Title: List of english Amstrad CPC Twitch streamers?
Post by: mr_lou on 09:24, 01 February 21
I have begun watching various retro Twitch streams a bit, but can't seem to find a whole lot of CPC ones.
Does anyone have a list of english Amstrad CPC Twitch streamers?
(You can also include streamers in other languages for anyone else finding this thread).

I try to do a stream every Saturday evening (NZT), so might be a bit early for most.

I actually thought Xyphoe had switched completely to YouTube for some reason.
Apparently not.

No, Xyphoe streams on Twitch through the week.  Just does his main Amstrad stream on Youtube.

I remember now why I never watch Xyphoe's streams. He's always streaming after we've gone to bed.
Now I feel old again.

You seem to stream at better hours for me. I saw the one with Dizzy. Now you just need to stop breaking the game.  :D

A suggestion: If you know the game(s) you're playing, and know what you're supposed to do, it would be nice if you could tell. Like "Right, so now that I got <item x> I need to find <location y> which over here on the rigth". Something like that, so it's a bit easier to follow the story.
And another suggestion: When the music in the game is short and repetitive, it may be a good idea to turn down the volume or even mute it completely. Let viewers play their own music while watching (and still being able to hear what you say).

10pm CET is bedtime in Denmark?

If the stream starts at 10PM CET it usually takes 30 minutes until the first game is started. So at 11pm, we might have seen 20 dancing Alan Sugars, but only a bit of a single game and still 4 more hours to go... I prefer to watch them the next day and skip parts.

It's a fair criticism. It used to start at 11CET once upon a time too! So at least he pushed it back an hour to cover the greetings. :)

Just wait. Some day you too will grow old and fall asleep early + nap during the day.

I'm actually just seeing this now.
So let me get this straight... It took THREE MONTHS to respond to my initial comment, and then a further month to be 'offended' by me.

Yeah, this whole thing reeks of spoiling for a fight.
Sorry, I'm not gonna miss you at all!  :laugh:
