  2. interactive - Custom buttons/backgrounds/icons/text

    Allow interactive buttons to be customize-able:
    IE: (layer approach) Background image, Text, cost
    1a. where the background could be a custom (uploaded?) hexagonal icon/image/jpg
    1b. the text can be a custom font/characterset/ or image (not required)
    1c. the cost (and progress bar) would be the top layer as per the current method, spark cost on top and the cooldown bar at the bottom, just without the whole-button-boarder
    1d. specify, or use alpha channel for transparency layer/color
    1e. custom currency useage: replace the 'spark' with a cookie in representation of channel currency (if channel currency only mode is on?)
    rough example: …

  3. Make it possible to share projects with other users in the new interactive studio

    In the old "Developer Lab" it was possible to share games (now known as projects) with other users so that they can edit them.

    Please make this possible again.

    Thank you

  4. Browse Section for 'Most Shocking' (Most sparks spent in their channel)

    I'd like to see a section on the Browse streamers page that is dedicated to ordering streamers based on how many sparks have been recently spent in their channel. So 10k sparks have been spent in streamer A's channel and 9555 sparks are in streamer B's channel. On that list, while they are live, streamer A would be at the top of the list sort of like the featured section. You get what I'm saying.

  5. Soundboard Should Work On Xbox

    Like many Beam streamers, I have an interactive soundboard button configuration for my channel. However, I primarily stream directly from my Xbox currently (which I know is in testing). I noticed when testing it out that if I attempt to click one of the soundboard buttons as a user, it plays through my PC when I'm acting as a viewer, but it does not seem to ever impact the Xbox stream at all.

    So as an Xbox streamer, I have no way of actively hearing or reacting to one of the best things Beam offers. I wish the soundboard clips…

  8. Spark Section

    I tried to search for this suggestion but I wasn't able to find something similar to my idea. At the top of the Streamers section you can currently sort by: All Streamers, Rising Stars, New Streamers, and Stream Teams. I feel it would be a great idea to add a section called Electric Streamers or something catchy and in that section, the streamers an be listed by how many sparks have been spent in their channel. This would allow people who are looking for more interactive streams can find the ones with the most action. Currently I haven't been noticing…

  9. Confirmation for High Cost Interactive Buttons

    Can we get an opt-in style confirmation for when we're spending more than say, 1,000 sparks? There was a time about a month ago that I was browsing someone's stream when they had interactive on, and I clicked back on to the main window to get the focus, and it just so happened to be on the board, so I erroneously spent 5K sparks...

  10. Channel specific currency for Interactive events

    A customizable currency unique to each channel.

    Example: Let's say I have an interactive game that has its own economy. I want to be able to freely control balancing that economy around a currency I control. Being able to grant and remove funds based on game events, subscriber status, etc without worrying about Sparks influencing my economy.

    An argument can be made that developer could simply implement their currency on the game side; personally I don't think that doesn't lend itself to a good user experience. Users would have to use a chatbot to query their inventory state, making the…

  11. Better Cooldown System For Mobile if Possible?

    Would love to not accidentally visually spend all my sparks and not know when I could or couldn't activate the button.

  12. Interactive Drawing!

    Hey Beam family! Beam streamer, Glitchy on my stream team (Team Torture) found a new way for viewers to interact with the stream! Right now we're calling it "Beam Board". It's basically a whiteboard that let's you draw on the video stream in real time. If you want to see it in action, here's his most recent VOD: https://beam.pro/glitchy?vod=570236 and included is also a screenshot of what it looks like.

    To achieve this all he basically did was a CLR browser within OBS for those who are curious.

    Not only were we laughing the whole time, but we were helping…

  13. Charges for giveaways

    So I just found the command for the built in giveaway system. What would be cool is if they stream could have the viewers use Sparks to bid on the giveaway and also maybe limit the giveaway entries to only people of a certain charge.

    Reason I would like the charges is to many time people would go in and create a bot or dummy account ( multiple accounts) to get more chances of winning the prize. Having the charge limit would help keep it far for all people in the chat and for folks that have been watch for…

  14. Added Controller Support for Interactive

    http://dl.razerzone.com/master-guides/Nostromo/NostromoOMG-ENG.pdf

    This is what I use and it works as a soundboard, but the buttons as far as I know are not recognized by beam's devlab.

    OFC, I'd love for the ps4 and xboxone to be recognized down the line :D

  15. Viewers can enable/disable interactive effects

    I'd like to see options available to the viewer to enable/disable the effects that happen on stream from interactive controls.

    Example:
    I'm working on developing a visual equivalent of the soundboards. Trigger GIFs, spawn particles, flash the screen etc. However, I'm worried those with epilepsy or similar would be unable to watch the stream when these effects are going off. It would be great if they could disable these effects from appearing on their stream.

    If there is a way I could do this within my own interactive development, I'd love to know how to go about it!

  16. interactive "VIEW/EDIT" json dialog

    Ability to edit raw json in the interactive design page. The interactive editor is super laggy, even with only 1 item created and placing it .. its just very sluggish. Would be nice to click view json and have it display an editable dialog vs read-only dialog.

  17. Interactive labels / tags

    I think it would be nice if we could label interactive streams not only with the game that's played there but also with what kind of interaction the user can expect.

    Either if it's interaction with soundboards, a moderated hybrid-like stream, where users can interact while the streamer also interacts with the game (like in Minecraft streams) or something like fully automated streams (like Youplay) where the users alone have control over what happens.

  20. WWE Interactive

    So this was an idea I thought I'd pitch, where fans can book matches for WWE 2K players. The prompt is simple, on screen, buttons for the in-game roster will appear. The streamer picks the match type and the number of participants. the viewers then choose who they want to see fight from a list of the over 130+ in game roster members or, if the streamers chooses, a custom list of up to 100 custom characters. Or both, depending on the streamer's preference or the viewers preference. once the timer is up, the top picks are revealed to the…
