Reminder: Pigeons 2: Pidge Harder tonight! I am currently aiming to get home from work, take an hour or so to get changed/unwind/etc. and get ready, and then date pigeons at around 7:00 PM my time.

Team Hatoful: Be there! Also ravenworks if you could look into the max volume/clipping issues that happen when you yell too loudly (Anghel's first appearance, the Punkgeons' "WHAT!?" reaction to the ostracized comment, etc.) that would be super awesome.

Everyone else: As before, I will post links to the private unlisted live-as-they're-happening YouTube streams to this journal. We have the ability to see the comments left on the videos as they're being made, so it's like a Livestream text chat. If you miss it, davidn will eventually have edited-together episodic versions posted as normal YouTube videos (check his journal for the end result of our last stream!)

Also as before, we are not actually doing the BBL route (yet?) but we have all been through the BBL route before and will have no qualms discussing it, pointing out things in this route that are relevant in hindsight, etc. EXPECT HEAVY SPOILERS.

Let's coo this.

(Side note: I can now no longer link to my standard waiting for you image without hearing it in DavidN's Dapperkeet McBeaks voice.)

All right, neat.

Question about my narration, I was getting some pretty serious lag between lines as i'm sure you all noticed, and I'm wondering if everyone was getting similar lag before their lines, or maybe there's something up with my connection? I want to be able to fix this.

I was actually very impressed at Google Hangouts' ability to allow us to hold a conversation at all! I was rather afraid that the time taken to transfer my screen to everyone else's would mean that there would be a lot of significant delays between lines, and that didn't happen. Delay is most likely mostly caused by the amount of bandwidth available and could be improved by turning off torrents and so on, but I remember you already did that...

I may also be straining the machine at my end by having the screen and audio recorders open - I'll try to minimize anything else running at all tonight and see if that makes any difference.

Yeah I know right? tech is amazing :D

The audio was fine, it's the video that lagged and would often pause for a few frames. That's what caused the problem on my end. It's very possible that my housemates were using netflix or playing an MMO, though, as I only specified torrents. I suppose we'll just see how it is this time around? ....Though come to think of it, is my processor power a possible issue here? It's not very outdated, but I suppose with new tech every bit counts.

Actually there were a few small blips in the audio, if I remember? Not often. Pretty rare. But it wasn't on a delay or anything.

It's possible that processor power might be an issue, but not nearly so much as it is on the computer that's broadcasting :)

I was actually trying to anticipate and skip ahead a tiny bit before a line had finished being read out, to compensate for people's latency... I don't think that you have anything to worry about, the significant pauses are few and far between (and on other people than just you, so I think it's unavoidable to an extent.)

Eagerly awaiting the next one in an hour...!

I don't know what to tell you, other than that it was fine on my end. D:

It's pretty nice though!

(Though I can't help but be curious what you thought of the tiny snippet of mine.)

All the more reason you were perfect for that role, even if it led to the unfortunate side effect of me being Rabu!

If those roles had been reversed, it would either have been disastrous or hilarious (but both for the same reason).

I'm afraid I won't be able to make it to the live recording (work tomorrow, sadly) but I'll be sure to follow along on YouTube tomorrow!

Good luck, everybirdie!
