Hello,

I like your extension enormously and being moderator of a growing Twitch channel, I would like to implement it in order to have chain points a little more interactive! Unfortunately for me impossible to connect in the "OBS Settings" part where I am supposed to enter an address. Can tell me what I need to enter in this part because it always tells me "Connection Lost".

thank you in advance

This would be for the streamer to set up, they would need to be running Better Points on their computer to connect with OBS. Otherwise they would need to expose OBS WebSockets to the open internet and that would be risky.

Hi,

I've tried the free version, but I can't connect to my streaming computer over the internal network (with the internal IP address). It works on the local computer (localhost:4444) but not from another pc (192.168.1.2:4444). Is this a limitation of the free version?

Another question:
Is there a way to make a source inside a specific scene visible? (e.g. myscene/mysource) Right now I can only get it to work with sources inside the currently active scene.

Hey troyhammaren,

First of all, thank you for trying out Better Points!

This is not a limitation of the free version, but it may be a limitation of browser extensions. Firefox etc. do not like it when we make web requests to URL's that we haven't explicitly asked permission for. Unfortunately, this was a feature that just escaped my radar and it was not tested, so I will need to investigate this further to give a definitive response. Please rest assured that it is definitely something that we want our users to be able to do, so we will make every effort to find a solution.

As to your second question, currently that is not possible, but it's actually at the top of our task list, so do expect it in the next release. Again, this is just something that slipped under the radar as it's not something our primary beta testers needed as a feature. Your feedback here is extremely valuable.

We are currently in a cooling-off period where the focus is on marketing and outreach (we pushed pretty hard to get a release out and need some time to recover!), so don't expect a patch next week. However things should pick back up in the near future. Keep your eye on this thread as we will aim to post any updates here.

Thank you again for trying out Better Points and for the very helpful feedback

Rohan Richards updated Better Points with a new update entry:

[Patch] v1.6.2 Major Update

This update brings a new UI design which conceptually separates events from a redemption and introduces a new component called the "Event List". While making it easier to manage all of your existing events, this in turn allows multiple redemptions to be linked to a single event.

Features:
  • New Event List
  • Updated UI Layout
  • App window is now separated and is always visible in the queue page
