General Information

Thanks for checking out this setup guide. This guide will cover items downloaded from NerdOrDie.com and TwitchTemple.com and will take you through the setup process. If you have any questions that aren’t answered in this setup guide, please feel free to contact us.

Photoshop and other third party software is not required to use this product, however specific components can be edited in Photoshop and After Effects, as we provide some of the original files.

The alerts, overlays, and widgets have been designed for use with OBS Studio, Streamlabs OBS, OBS.Live, and Xsplit. Please make sure your streaming software is up to date before using this product. If you are not familiar with how to set up and use streaming software, we strongly suggest checking out the below tutorial before moving on:

Before You Install

Fonts Used

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

Colors Used

  • Green: #00AA24
  • Red: #E00000

Installation Guide - Set Window to 1920x1080

Installing the Alerts – Streamlabs

In your downloaded files, open up the standard alert folder.

  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 package name. The import link will only override your alert package. This means you can combine these alerts with any other scene collection/widgets 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.

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 and sounds. 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.

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

Width and Height of Source

We generally recommend setting the size to 1920 wide and 1080 tall (more height is recommended if using messages), however, depending on your stream adjust the size here may work better for you. 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.
