Frequently Asked Questions

1. Who is Orb?

Orb is a full-time streamer from Stockholm, Sweden. He has a background in competitive Counter-Strike, while he still enjoys FPS titles such as Call of Duty, he focuses his stream on variety gaming and enjoyment. He streams five – six times a week on Twitch, and we would love to see you there and get involved with the community!

Read more about Orb here.

2. What games can I expect Orb to play on his streams?

Orb plays a variety of different titles from different genres. He is an first person shooter gamer at heart but enjoys exploring different titles and genres such as story driven titles like Telltale’s The Walking Dead, Life is Strange, and Wolfenstein. Every year we have featured a marathon stream for the latest Call of Duty, racing to get to the master prestige, which has always been a great success and proves to be fun for the community.

TL:DR; Everything. Orb plays everything.

3. What platform does Orb play on?

Orb typically plays on PC as he prefers to play titles with high frame rates and that has support for keyboard and mouse, but he does venture onto the consoles every once in a while for exclusive games.

4. What is the deal with Orbeytron and Orbits?

Orbits is the loyalty point system for Orb’s chat and Orbeytron is the bot that handles all of that. The bot and the system is used for giveaway raffles at the end of the month and mini-games in chat such as Bank Heists and Betting.

We have a dedicated page to Orbeytron and Orbits here and instructions which goes in-depth into the functionings and payouts here.

5. What does Orb use to stream?

Orb uses Open Broadcast Software (OBS) to stream via Twitch. He has a Gaming PC and a Streaming PC which allow him to stream at maximum quality without taking a performance hit to the gameplay.

You can view all of his specs and peripherals here.

6. How can I join the Orb Steam Group?

Orb has two Steam groups; one open to the public and the other reserved specifically for Twitch Subscribers. These groups are essential if you wish to join Orb when he plays games as they’re the place from where you will be invited.

Details on joining both Steam groups can be found here.

You can join the Public Steam group here.

Subscribers need to go through a short process to be added to the Subscriber Steam group. Details of which can be found via our guide on the right.

7. What mouse settings and sensitivity does Orb use?

Orb strongly recommends that you find your own sensitivity that you’re comfortable with. Sensitivity is NOT something you should change all the time as it ruins the muscle memory you’re trying to build up.

But for the record he uses 800 DPI, 6/11 Windows sensitivity, with mouse acceleration turned off.

For specific titles: CS:GO 0.65 // COD: 0.8 // H1Z1 Sens: 8% Scoped: 8% Vehicle: 15% Aiming: 8% // OW: 5

8. Where can I find previous playthroughs?

We have a detailed list of which games Orb has played available via our VOD Guide page; this is regularly updated with posts with the Twitch VOD links.

You can view the VOD Guides here.

9. What OBS Settings does Orb use to stream?

We highly recommend that you find settings that works for your streaming needs, Orb has a two PC setup that most new streamers won’t have, and this allows him to stream with higher quality settings than would be typically found in a single PC setup.

Resolution: 1536×864
FPS: Lanczos – 60
Bitrate: 6000
CPU processing: Veryfast

Why the weird resolution?
In ELI5 fashion, H.264 encoders such as x264 divide the image into 16×16 squares when encoding the video. The slices go down to 8×8 and even 4×4 but whats important is the 16×16 number. The encoders slice the videos up to be able to better run comparisons and encode the video. These slices are what provide the great multi-threading performance increases, since slices can run on different threads. When a video is being encoded that has a resolution that is not divisible by 16×16, the encoder has to do more work, by filling in the video until it reaches a resolution of 16×16. If the resolution, divided by 16x is a fraction, thats not good. This means resolutions that are divisible by 16 can increase the encoder performance, decrease CPU usage, increase the encoder quality and therefore, increase the video quality (Since the encoder has full 16×16 slices to work with).

Orb streams Monday thru Sunday from around 17:00 (Sweden, GMT +1), with Wednesday and Sunday being days off. For changes and extra streams make sure to have Twitch Notifications turned on for Orb’s channel and follow Orb on Twitter.
