Re: Where do you store your videos?

There is a pinned thread here https://forums.roku.com/viewtopic.php?f=34&t=34726

If you are going with an amazon solution, an S3 bucket with cloudfront is a better solution than a R3 instance. Hosting video is still going to be expensive but this will be less expensive.

Re: WHAT THE HECK Tech VI, stealing ANOTHER game, Dino Dodger!

Forgot about "Quartet", well done.   Point taken about Tech VI being  unscrupulous  in his activities on Roku. Definitely  should be banned form publishing on Roku given their hard stance on piracy. a stolen game is pirated content.  As for "Roku pulled ad support" I suppose I sh...

Re: WHAT THE HECK Tech VI, stealing ANOTHER game, Dino Dodger!

Not defending his actions but, I am not sure if TECH VI knew that the games were stolen and likely did not know they came from your Git repository. He should have definitely removed the games from his channel store listings upon learning that they are based on stolen code. I think that there was ano...

Re: WHAT THE HECK Tech VI, stealing ANOTHER game, Dino Dodger!

I had written the author of the original channel "Dino Doger" to let them know.  They said that Tech VI had purchased the right to use the game from them. So Tech Vi may have actually paid money for   marcelo.cabral 's stolen games.  The purchaser did not verify the source.  I wonder who t...

Re: Roku Screensaver Input

I don't think you can get key presses during a screensaver. Look at the screensaver documentation here  https://developer.roku.com/docs/developer-program/media-playback/screensavers.md . check out the section "Sharing active data"  As the billboard scrolls onto the screen, set a flag in th...

Re: Free Roku Game "Nohzdyve"

Thanks for the welcome but I have been here for quite a while. I am not that great at publicity and marketing. Any suggestions on where to promote Roku games?

Re: Free Roku Game "Nohzdyve"

Hey Komag, Thanks for playing.  You are right there is a delay between rounds.  I think I put in a button lockout to prevent the game restarting too quickly and it will continue to play if you wait just a little bit. I probably made the delay a little too long and I will fix it the next time I have ...

Free Roku Game "Nohzdyve"

I recreated the game "Nohzdyve" from "Bandersnatch" that is on Netflix. This is pure Brightscript using roScreen. https://my.roku.com/add/69GH2C It is a non-certified channel so you will need to click "ok" to the warning when installing through the web portal. More info...

Re: Nohzdyve game from Bandersnatch ported to ROKU, play for free

I see that over 100 people have viewed this post, but I only see 7 installs of the game.  Curious why there is no interest in this game?  It is free to play and has no ads. Is the non certified channel warning putting people off? Or has no one here watched "Bandersnatch" on Netflix and doe...

Re: Best Audio Format For Looping With roAudioPlayer

It would be great if we had an audio Buffer we could have access to for sound mixing and playback.   I tried writing a mod/xm player in brightscript, but since I need to write each .wav file to the device which takes over a second and the fact that brightscript can be slow at parsing large arrays.
