HOW DO I CONNECT TO TWITCH CHAT?

It is strongly recommended that you complete this setup prior to streaming.

Twitch integration is a one-time-setup. You do not have to be currently streaming to connect. First, enter in your channel name and oauth code.

Channel Name

Locate the Community Hub from the game's main menu and select Profile. Click on the Twitch button bar to open the Twitch main menu. Click Configure and then Channel Name. Enter in the name shown at the end of your channel URL. (For example, www.twitch.tv/ZStormGames would enter their channel name, ZStormGames.)

Oauth Code

An oauth code can be retrieved via https://twitchapps.com/tmi/. Oauth tokens adds an additional layer of security which avoids the use of passwords. Enter the full set of alphanumeric characters following "oauth:"

Important Security Notice: Do not expose your oauth code on stream. If this occurs you should immediately generate a new oauth token and enter it off-stream.

Your oauth code and your channel name will be securely saved onto your device. Once you submit an oauth code it will immediately become starred out for your security.

Connect Stream Chat

Once your channel name and oauth code have been entered, return to the Twitch main menu and select Connect Stream Chat.

A message will have been sent to your Twitch chat confirming the connection. There are no response steps necessary, however you should still verify that it appears in chat. This message may take several seconds to arrive. If after several seconds no message has arrived, ensure your device has an active internet connection and that your channel and oauth entries are correct and try again. Your session lasts until the game is closed.

Once successfully connected you will only need to click Connect Stream Chat the next time you play. If you change your Twitch password you will need to reenter your new oauth code.

WHAT MAKES THIS FEATURE UNIQUE?

Rogue Ascent features built-in Twitch integration with gameplay events that allow streaming communities to engage directly with streamers in-game. There are no third party installations required and setup is completely straightforward. Viewers receive immediate recognition for their donations and stamp their name above characters they spawn.

WHAT ARE BITS?

Bits allow communities to support their favorite streamers on Twitch. You can learn more about bits at https://www.twitch.tv/bits.

HOW DOES THIS FEATURE WORK?

Rogue Ascent's Twitch integration allows viewers to submit chat commands which influence your game as you play.

Viewers may donate bits by sending the cheer command via stream chat. Gameplay events occur based on the amount cheered and the customization settings set up by the streamer. For example, send cheer100 to cheer 100 bits and trigger a tier 1 level bit event. You can learn more about bits at https://www.twitch.tv/bits

Notice: You must first connect to Twitch to experience these features. See section, How Do I Connect To Twitch Chat for instructions on how to get set up.

Regarding Cheers: Aliases are not supported. Ensure that your community is using the official cheer command.

WHAT ARE BIT EVENTS?

Bit Events allows streamers to engage directly with their viewers through built-in gameplay events! Bit Events can be friendly or adversarial depending on how the streamer customizes their settings.

WILL ALL CHEERS BE HONORED?

Yes. The game queues events and will attempt to honor all valid cheer commands. However, events are subject to rate limiting and are paused under certain conditions (for example, enemies cannot be spawned during level transitions or while not in-game)

HOW DO YOU CHEER?

You can cheer by using the cheer command in stream chat. Events occur based on the amount cheered. For example, send cheer100 to cheer 100 bits.

You can learn more about bits at https://www.twitch.tv/bits.

Regarding Cheers: Aliases are not supported. Ensure that your community is using the official cheer command.

CAN I VIEW STREAM CHAT WHILE PLAYING?

Yes. Once your game is connected to Twitch you can view your stream chat on the holographic display attached on your wrist. This HUD also displays useful information such as your Twitch channel URL, the current time, and your device's battery level.

WHAT ARE ADVERSARIAL EVENTS?

Adversarial events are the default event type, aimed to challenge or surprise the streamer. For example, spawning a live grenade above their head, deploying an enemy patrol, or hiring a bounty hunter.

Adversarial events are enabled by default when bit events are turned on.

WHAT ARE FRIENDLY EVENTS?

Friendly events are those which help the streamer on their ascent. These events include wholesome help with healing and reloading. For those streaming with bHaptics gear, special haptic patterns are available for hugs and friendly pats on the back. If the adversaries are turning the tide, win it back with friendly events.

Friendly events are disabled by default. To enable Friendly Events, open the Customize Events menu from the Twitch Configuration page in-game.

Streamer Notice: Enabling friendly events will make your score ineligible for online leaderboard ranking.

EVEN AND ODD: FRIEND OR FOE?

Viewers may take on the role of an adversary or take on a support role. By default Twitch events are adversarial. However, a streamer can also enable friendly events. Twitch event modes can be friendly, adversarial, both, or neither (off).

Feature Notice: If friendly and adversarial events are both enabled at the same time the following rules apply:

Adversarial events occur for even valued cheers, such as (200+, 300+, 400+)

Friendly events occur for odd valued cheers, such as (201+, 301+, 401+)


This rule only applies to when both friendly and adversarial mode are enabled at the same time. If only one event mode is enabled then cheer amounts only determine the event tier.

Streamer Notice: Enabling friendly events will make your score ineligible for online leaderboard ranking.

CAN I ADJUST CHEER THRESHOLDS AS A STREAMER?

You can adjust the overall value of cheers using the event value multiplier at the Twitch Event Customization menu in-game. This setting has two values, 1.0x (default) and 0.1x.

For example, at the 0.1x multiplier setting a 100 level bit event would trigger at 10 bits instead, 200 level with 20 bits, and 350 at 35 bits. Friend or Foe rules still apply at each setting.

This option is specifically built to accommodate smaller streamers who are still building their communities.

CAN I DISABLE SPECIFIC EVENTS AS A STREAMER?

You may disable specific cheer events if you would prefer not to use them. In the case of disabled events, the game will default to the nearest enabled tier below what was cheered.

WHAT ABOUT MY CHATBOTS?

To avoid clutter in chat, the game attempts to automatically filters out messages sent by your chatbots. They'll still appear on your stream chat but won't show up in-game.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A STREAMER DIES?

All unprocessed cheers will remain in queue for the following run.

WHERE CAN I SEE A FULL LIST OF EVENTS?
