That's where I installed it.

 

Then you have a duplicate Twitch folder inside the main directory cause DCS shouldn't be looking for a manifest file. If you'd like me to troubleshoot for you, PM me your Discord name or something.

You're absolutely right :thumbup: I had an old install in the base game directory from 2018, didn't even remember trying it back then! thanks for the assist, works like a charm.

I've recently installed Twitch2DCS and I am now getting

"[string "C:\Users\Jim\Saved Games\DCS.openbeta\Scripts\Twitch2DCS.lua"]:236: loop in gettable" every time I start DCS.

 

Any ideas?

Did you JUST install it or was it working and now it isn't? The error is not able to connect to Twitch. Try generating a new oauth code and restart DCS after changing it in options. If that doesn't work try disabling your firewall.

Looks like you didnt install it right. Did you download the git repo, or did you download an actual release from here? https://github.com/jeffboulanger/twitch2dcs/releases

 

The release has the proper folder structure for installing it, not the repo.

You have to include the "oauth" in the beginning of the authentication token. I had the same error and only when including the oauth: at the front in DCS options, it worked.

Maybe im missing something, but the install instructions state to open the Twitch2DCS.LUA in your CONFIG folder- However the latest install file structure does not include a CONFIG folder and only installs a Twitch2DCS.LUA in the SCRIPTS folder.

 

Maybe you meant "CREATE" a Twitch2DCS.LUA with the text you posted- However that would be strange since you could have just included that in the file folder to begin with. The Sample LUA you posted also is wildly different from the one in SCRIPTS.... so the instructions leave me at a bit of a loss as to what the intended way to install this is.

 

Can anyone help?

Installation

 

Extract the contents of release to your Saved Games DCS folder

(C:\Users\ username \Saved Games\DCS)

Start DCS and go to Options -> Special -> Twitch2DCS and input your username and Twitch oauth key from TwitchApps.com make sure you include the "oauth:" text. (You may need to restart DCS after this)

Enjoy communicating with Twitch from ingame.

Anyone know why it just stuck after some time (few messages), not refreshing, no new messages/events?

Ah version is in 2 spots, ill have to update in the next release (if there is one).   It should say 1.1.2 on the dcs home screen (the icon for the module).   I didn't realize it was in the options screen to, i think that was added there in a submittion from another contributor.

Open the file Twitch2DCSConfig.lua in the Config folder with your favorite text editor.

Is this file supposed to be in the Saved Games folder or in the Program Install folder? I can't seem to find it.

After all the installation steps were followed, I get a black screen when launching DCS, then a few secs later it loads with a timeout error...

 

@Jabbers_ Does this thing still work in 2.7?

I really don't understand where I'm supposed to add my username and stream key.

 

I've search the whole .lua but I don't see anything that matches the examples you posted. Am I supposed to just add a line anywhere and edit it to include my information? That doesn't sound quite right to me.

Yes it still works, lots of people on twitch using it just fine.   Can you PM me your dcs.log after the failure

There is a URL show on the setting screen that you need to go to, that will give you an OAUTH key that you enter into the box, that is the login information used to connect to twitch.

Yes of course, thats the thing, I already tried inputting oauth key in game and also in .lua

 

Both give same result
