Once Fortnite Master originally launched, they had an alpha version of an OBS Overlay which some of their masters were using on the streams that tracked Fortnite statistics as they played. Then, since that, they have had countless people ask them how to get this overlay to use on the streams.
At the moment, we are going to announce that at long last, the wait is over. After many weeks of testing and development, finally Fortnite Master feel confident enough to release their OBS Overlay to the public. To use it, simply you are able to look up your own profile on fortnitemaster.com, then click on the button highlighted. The next step that you have to do is to follow the instructions provided.
For your information, the numbers on the overlay are going to update when each game you play during a stream session is completed. Here are some basic troubleshooting points:
- Once you are setting up the browser scene in OBS Studio, you have to make sure that you change the default width and height to 446 x 115. From there, you will be able to adjust the overlay to fit your screen which you want.
- You have to make sure that you are using the latest version of OBS Studio. You are able to find a download here.
- The OBS overlay will updates after a game has already finished. It means that not after you die. This might take up to 30 minutes from the start of each game. For example, if you get 3 kills and die in 28th place, so you are going to need to wait for the 26 of the remaining players to die before those three kills are added to the overlay’s stats.
- The OBS overlay will tracks your stats over a single stream. It means that your stats is going to reset if you turn your stream off and on again.
Now, we are going to show how to bring in text files to the most common streaming software. For now that will be OBS (Version 22.0.2).
- Firstly, you have to open OBS and go to the scene that will use the data.
- After that, you have to click the plus sign to add a new source. Then, you are able to select the “Text (GDI+)” option.
- A sub menu is going to open. You are able to name your new source here if you want. Just click “OK” once you are finished.
- The next menu is going to let you configure the text’s display on the stream. Here, we are going to add the file we want to display. You need to choose the check box “Read from file” and do not forget to choose “Browse”. Please navigate to the location of the saved files. You will need to run the app once or you will not have your files yet.
- Now, you are able to customize the font, color, background and a few other options, but at this point you are done with adding the files. Please click “OK” and position and resize as you need within your scene.
