  1. I am going to, soon, run some more tests with streaming games. I already did Rocket League and American Truck Simulator and both worked out fine. I could tell the CPU had a few spikes of 100% usage (it kept itself at around 75-85% usage, in average. I've been monitoring it while streaming) and watching back the footage I could see frame drops at the moments I recall the CPU usage capping out but for the most part, things have been going well in these tests. If the next tests spit out good results, I might start making game streams somewhat frequently.


    Games I plan on playing to test what I can stream and if they work well with the stream, I'll just play them whenever I stream games:


    - Rocket League (tested - approved)
    - American Truck Simulator (tested - approved)
    - Euro Truck Simulator 2 (not tested - certainly will be approved, given that it is about the same as ATS)
    - BeamNG.drive (not tested)
    - D'LIRIUM (not tested. Should be fun to stream this one)
    - Legends of Equestria (not tested)
    - Them's Fightin' Herds (not tested)
    - Doom (not tested)
    - Horizon Chase Turbo (not tested)
    - Garry's Mod (not tested)


    Those are it, for now. I'd LOVE to play Spyro Reignited Trilogy but the game costs 150 bucks in my region. dragonweep.gif?1 I don't even know if my processor can handle that game, anyway. It should, I think, but I don't know how well it would. Let alone while streaming. Still, I'd love to play that live. Then again, my PC can handle Yooka-Laylee and that has similar graphics, so I guess it would be ok with Spyro.


    In the meantime, I'll continue doing art streams. That I know works out well and honestly? Since the past two streams went well enough (more than one person showed up! dummy.gif) I will do some more and continue if people keep coming. Truth be told, not only I like having the company of people watching me do art live, but it somehow has helped me feel motivated to do it. And motivation has been my most major issue in the past few years. If I can stay motivated, I can become active art-wise, again! I'd LOVE to stream art every weekend. So long as public come over to watch/enjoy it, of course. 


    For games, I'll use YouTube. For art, I'll stick with Picarto. I thought about using YouTube for art streams as well, but YouTube's WAY TOO picky about music, so I'd have to be extra selective on what I have playing in the background and that is just not fun, at all. So better to only do games over at YouTube, when streaming.

      BeamNG would be an interesting one, although Good luck running that and a stream lol

      Mt thoughts exactly, Cheeseburger. lol That and potentially some parts of Garry's Mod (I have a buttload of addons on Gmod). I was going to include Minecraft in the list as I would like to stream that for certain, but that one I can already tell will be a no-no for streaming. Even on regular play it already takes up a LOT of processor and RAM and runs with low FPS. If I attempt to stream that, the computer will come to a near halt, for certain. I do need to upgrade to a modern system. :'c


      I certainly want to stream D'LIRIUM, the most. 

  2. Happy Sunday, ya'll! I'm about to begin another test stream and this time I'll play some ATS to see how well (or badly) my old computer will handle streaming. 


    Head over to my YouTube channel for it:



  3. Hey chaps! I'll be streaming some art over at Picarto in a few minutes. You are welcome to join and chat, if you wish! dragonnod1.gif?1

  4. Test stream:



  5. I know I am a bit late for the Tuesday spook, but it's still Tuesday so screw it! Get spook'd!



  6. Me: 3:15 AM, it is late. I should go to bed for it is Monday and I have to work.

    YouTube: Bruh. Check this out:

      I've not seen Moana, so I'm just gonna pretend that this is the actual movie.

  7. This is not the kind of streaming most (or all) of you are used to or even interested into, but I miss streaming art so I am giving it another shot. So if you'd like to, head over here: https://picarto.tv/MikeDragonArt


    No mic, though. Just background music which, if you don't like, you can mute the stream. You are more than welcome to come and join me! :)

  8. Since I posted this last Tuesday:


    I will post this on this Tuesday:




    Come back again for more spooks next Tuesday! One spook every Tuesday until Halloween strikes. Hope you won't be too spooked, for that.

    1. buksee


      I wish there was a spook forum emote, at least for October 😥

    2. buksee


      Until then we have to improvise


      *distant doot*

  9. Jungle life. I'm far away from nowhere, on my own, like Tarzan boy.


    Begin your week with some vaporwave of a cool 80's song:


    And of course, the original for an extra dose of yes.


    1. ZakYeen


      When I saw  the word "Tarzan Boy" in this post, I immedately had the song stuck in my head! What a brilliant song! Definitely one of my favourites from the 80's! :D

      Eu podia ter postado isso na segunda, mas aí não seria outubro. lol

  11. New World of Trucks event and DLC, chaps!




    1. Granite


      ATS is now incompatible with TMP, ETS2 works.

      It will be patched soon.

      TruckersMp is crashing to me :(

  12. Yup... that's a fence. Though I find it oFENCEsive that it wouldn't let me go any further beyond that point. There were living burgers on the other side! 😢



  13. I just posted a journal on my Deviant Art about streaming (not game related, btw), but I think I should mention it here, as well. Though to not simply copy and past everything over, I will drop here the link to the journal in question here. Have a read and let me know what you think, please: http://fav.me/ddh19j3

      Thanks but... my intention isn't to stream games, let alone on Twitch. 😐 

  14. Renault T is finally out after all these years, hm? I think I forgot my hype for it back in 2017. 😐


    Oh well. I'll go in-game now and buy one anyway to let it collect dust in the garage for a while, before going back to my beloved Draco Pete.


    1. antrax737


      Yea, hype in 2017, i know what you mean... but it drivers really nice.

      I also bought a Renault T, and I still don't think pulling heavy goods is enough. May I add your steam friend? I don't know how to send personal chat on the forum, and it's hard to discuss some topics publicly.😐

  15. If there is one thing I have learned from working with IT in these past 12 years is that if we use 100% of our brain, we'll become really slow, lag a LOT and very likely crash.

      Why don't we just download more memory from the internet?

    2. DJFrontier


      And when that happens, we need to restart and, as a result, we stop midway and ask ourselves: What was I going to do? 🤔

  16. Creeper.


    Aaww, man!

      Those who hold a Totem of Dying cannot die.

  17. Five years of survival in the same world without a single death. And I almost blew it the other day due to being a little distracted enough to not press Shift at the right time. :thisisfine: 



  18. Sim, eu fui no da GCEE, ontem. Fazia um tempo que eu não ia. Primeira vez que vou apenas para dirigir e como era 7 de setembro, usei as cores do país. Nada de vermelho, aqui. Apesar de não ter jogado ATS, também tenho meu Pete pintado com as cores da bandeira, lá.
  19. I am not quite what you'd call a patriotic guy, but eh. Have a Brazil themed Pete and Merc, since 7th of September's Brazil's independence day:

      I already spoke yesterday and I'm repeating again. Your truck doesn't even get attention. 😅

      You go Mike! Yea that Merc & especially that PETE be rockin'!

  20. And now, a little motivational message:


  21. I don't believe you can obtain that file, anymore, given that it was exclusive for the Real Operations 7 event, which has already happened last month. Therefore, the file is no longer actually necessary and thus, isn't distributed, anymore. I am not sure why you are getting that error when launching the mod, but you can try uninstalling it then manually deleting the TruckersMP folder that might be left present in the C:\ProgramFiles directory. Once that is done, install it again and see if the error continues. If it does, I recommend you make a support ticket over at https://truckersmp.com/support
  22. What day is it?

      YESSSSSS I ended my exam at high school xD
