I can't alter visibility on an OBS group

Issue:

I can't change visibility settings on a group in OBS

Solution:

This is a compatibility issue with OBS groups and the OBS Websocket plugin, not an issue with Lioranboard.  To avoid source control problems or OBS errors do not use groups in OBS, try using nested scenes instead.

I can't load .lbe extension into Lioranboard 2.x

Issue:

I can't load my .lbe extension into Lioranboard 2, the extension file does not show up in the dialog window.

Solution:

Lioranboard extension files ending with .lbe are only compatible with the deprecated Lioranboard 1.x releases.  Users must download an updated Lioranboard 2 compatible version of the extension, contact the original extension author about creating an update, or convert the extension content manually to the newer format.

Lioranboard 2 compatible extensions must end with .lb2 in the file name.  Renaming .lbe extensions to use .lb2 will not work; the content formatting is not compatible.

Some Twitch event/alert triggers are not working with Lioranboard 1.x

Issue:

Some Twitch alert/event triggers stopped working with Lioranboard 1.x

Solution:

As of March 15, 2022, Twitch deprecated and removed some Twitch API commands and the entire v5 API, blocking functionality for some Lioranboard 1.x Twitch commands and triggers.  Lioranboard 1.x is also deprecated by the Lioranboard development team and not receiving any further development efforts or community expert support.  Users must upgrade to Lioranboard 2 to resolve these Twitch API issues, there are no other workarounds.

Receiver Does Not Connect To OBS

Issue:

The receiver fails to connect to OBS.

Solution:

OBS connection issues can stem from one or more of the following items:

  • The WebSocket extension is missing, corrupted, outdated, or did not install correctly.  Try re-installing the WebSocket extension.
  • Anti-virus, Windows Firewall, or other firewall/security software is blocking the connection to the OBS WebSocket extension.  Disable the software or add exceptions to allow the WebSocket connection.
  • The WebSocket port and password values in the receiver options do not match the OBS WebSocket settings.
  • Try running the Lioranboard receiver application as administrator.
  • Check/Uncheck the "Non blocking Connection" checkbox in the receiver options.
