I updated my forum user description too. Just blank for now.
My other issues: my players already have enough to manage. I want to use syrinscape, and am using syrinscape, but if I ask my players to run the audio themselves from inside a browser instance using the web player or through the app, its just another thing I have to ask them to coordinate every session in addition to the VTT we are using and the discord app I’m having them use for audio/video chat. I’ve a few players for whom adding another website and/or app to the list of stuff they have to remember to do every session would be no issue, but with a large group of players who all have varying levels of computer saviness, and varying quality of computer hardware, if I were to ask that of all of them, it would just lead to the result we don’t use syrinscape, to be honest.
As a result, the only way I can see it viable to use syrinscape is to pipe it into the discord audio channel from my machine using a dummy discord account. As you probably know…that’s doable, but not simple. I have it working, but I have difficulty getting it to work well when using the web player as I don’t want to pipe all my browser audio into discord, i only want the syrinscape output to go there. Aside from the issue I was having where I couldn’t figure out that there were two visually identical versions of the GM control panel, that each produced different results in terms of how they interacted with the app, that’s been working fine.
Ideally…syrinscape would have some more direct native way of integrating into a discord audio stream, but I wouldn’t expect such a thing to be a priority for you.
As for recommendations for dealing with the error message…it might be useful that when the message complaining that the user is using both the web player and the app pops up from the GM control panel…maybe detect that the only user of the web player is the GM control panel to which that message is being printed, and put a different message up in that case suggesting that if the GM is trying to use the online player (app) that he go to the online player’s GM control panel rather than the web player’s GM control panel.
