Before You Install

Fonts Used

If you’d like to match the style of the overlay and alerts, use the fonts listed below.

  • Anton – This is the primary font used
  • Roboto – This is used for the text box

To download Google fonts, simply create a selection of fonts, open the drawer at the bottom of the screen, then click the “Download” icon in the upper-right corner of the selection drawer. You can download the fonts to use in mock-ups, documents, or locally on your machine.

Installation Guide

Installing the Alerts

  1. Click the Alerts Quick Setup link to begin installing these alerts.
  2. If you’d like, choose “Create Widget Theme” and name it something appropriate such as “PixelPop Alerts”. The import link will only override your alert package. This means you combine these alerts with any other scene collection you’ve made in Streamlabs. If you want to save your old alerts, it’s highly recommended to do this in a new profile.
  3. Select “Use” for the profile you want to import into.
  4. Navigate to “Alert Box” and copy your unique URL.
  5. Paste this URL as a “Browser Source” in your streaming software. We recommend setting the size to at least 1920 wide and 700 tall (more height is recommended if using messages). If you need to scale down, you can do so directly inside of OBS Studio. If you’re using the Streamlabs OBS .overlay file, you may not need to complete this step if your alert box is already added in.

Once you’ve added this into your streaming software test the alerts to make sure they’re working properly.

Delaying Text-to-Speech

If you’re planning on using text-to-speech you may need to delay them from being read, as there is an intro animation. To do this, you can change the Alert Text Delay in the Streamlabs base options. If you’re using alert variations (such as re-subs) you will need to  update in the variations as well.

Custom Alert Options

These options are found in the Custom Fields tab.

  • Font size – The font-size you want to use for your alert, everything will be dynamically calculated from this.
  • Skew Degree – How much to skew the animation
  • Top Line – Changed the text templates used for each alert. You can use dynamic tags like {name}, {amount}, {count}, and {months} in these text boxes.
  • Top Line Font Family – The font family to use for the alerts.
  • Bottom Line – Changed the text templates used for each alert. You can use dynamic tags like {name}, {amount}, {count}, and {months} in these text boxes.
  • Bottom Line Font Family – The font family to use for the alerts.
  • Message Font – The font family to use for the alerts.
  • Color 1 – This will control the colour 1 (left) in the gradient
  • Color 2 – This will control the colour 2 (right) in the gradient
  • Text Color – This is the colour of the Top Line text
  • Pixel Explosion – This is if you want to enable the pixel explosion.
  • Pixel Shape – You can change the shape of the pixel explosion using this drop down
  • Pixel Count – How many pixels do you want to appear, for best results use 60-75
  • Pixel Outro Delay – How long do you want the pixels to appear on the screen, this is in seconds

Once you’ve downloaded and unzipped the files from Nerd or Die, open up the files included. You’ll see a folder for the event list and standard alerts.

Event List

  1. Click the Widget Quick Setup link in your downloaded files to begin installing this event list.
  2. If you’d like, choose “Create Profile” and name it something appropriate such as “Uplink”. The import link will only override your event list. This means you can combine this event list with any other scene collections you’ve made in Streamlabs. If you want to save your old event list, it’s highly recommended to do this in a new profile.
  3. Select “Use” for the profile you want to import into.
  4. Navigate to “Widget URL” and copy your unique URL.
  5. Paste this URL as a “Browser Source” in your streaming software. We recommend using a size of at least 1000 by 1000.
  6. If you need to scale down, you can do so directly inside of OBS Studio. If you’re using the Streamlabs OBS .overlay file, you may not need to complete this step if your event list box is already added in.

Fire off a few test events to make sure that things are working properly.
