New Communication Platform (xfire alternative)

Post by WhiteStone on 10/06/15, 08:19 pm

So we, as swat4 players, used before xfire to communicate and take screenshots, etc..
But as you saw in the earlier post, xfire is shutting down.
Now we need a new platform to keep going on.

Please post here the platforms you would/want/prefer/suggest to use.

Suggestions:
- Steam; http://store.steampowered.com/
- OverWolf; http://www.overwolf.com/ (Not working for swat4)
- RazerZone; http://www.razerzone.com/comms/stream-viewer (chat) (SOLUTION FOR NOW)
http://www.razerzone.com/cortex/share (sreens and video's)
- EvolveHq; https://www.evolvehq.com/welcome (SOLUTION FOR NOW)
- Raptr; http://raptr.com/
- GSC; http://getgsc.com/

Overwolf would be the best replacement, since it has most of the features that Xfire does and more. Yes, it currently doesn't support SWAT4 in-game, however if we can get the community to switch to it and vote for it, hopefully it will incline the developers will add support soon.

One feature that Overwolf doesn't support would be voice chat, however I feel most users don't use it on Xfire anyways due to SWAT4 having in-game VoIP or using they instead use Teamspeak, Ventrilo, Skype, Roger Wilco, etc.

Well we as swat4 players cant wait till they got a support.
For now I think https://www.evolvehq.com/welcome is the best.
You can take screens. videos, chat ALL.

It is really similar to xfire, it is great for now

Nah I don't like Raptr, Razer or Overwolf, too complicated / uses too much CPU for old PC's and doesn't have server support

Evolve seems nice but again there's no server support. Also we were having login problems.

My favourite is GSC (http://getgsc.com/) since it has built-in Gametracker support and a working Swat4 serverlist

You're primitive

It's more important how it works than how it looks...

Can you screenshot/record/chat while in game?
I can't do it in GSC

Guys, I think the most appropriate replacement is EVOLVE, it contains most of Xfire features (Capturing Screenshots, Evolve in game, In game FPS, Capturing Videos).
It has detected SWAT automatically as well.
Its 90% Xfire

-> It allows you to get your Xfire friends list just by giving it your Xfire username and password.

Screenshot:



I fully recommend it!

If you're going to use it you might want to add me; Username: crisller

All I said is based on personal experience.

EDIT:

- RazerZone; http://www.razerzone.com/comms/stream-viewer

This one can take screenshots and video's and is most likely the best for now (My opinion)

Just download this too:
http://www.razerzone.com/cortex/share

If you can't download it, here are the direct links to download
- (Chat) http://www.razerzone.com/comms/download
- (Screens & video's)
mirror1: http://www.razerzone.com/cortex/download
mirror2: http://eestaging.razerzone.com/cortex/download

Register for Razer here:

Dammit white, wtf is wrong with Evolve

It's so much nicer... nice website, no need for 2 programs (Comms and Cortex), and Razer is so laggy...
