Grant Permission: Join the Mob
In order for you to use the BOBMOB extension, we need your permission to access your Twitch User ID. Otherwise we can not persistently store your inventory and settings. The first time you use the BOBMOB extension, you will be greeted with a “Grant Permission” dialogue. Twitch has a dedicated button to do this. Click on the puzzle piece in the bottom right corner of the Twitch video player. This will open a menu, select “Manage Access” and approve BOBMOB by clicking on the “Grant Access” button.
What makes YOU you? Bling? Kicks? No-pants Friday? Change your style in no time; show the world how you feel today.
Inventory: My Precious
The Inventory tab shows your available consumables. Using a consumable item will trigger an animation onscreen that is visible to every viewer. Before using a consumable, you can preview its effect only visible to you. To make an animation visible to everyone, just click “USE” in the lower left corner.
Treasure Chests: Keep Calm And Collect Drops
Using BOBMOB will be rewarded with treasure chests. Create your BOB to get two chests and open up the world of BOBMOB. Being active during a stream and participation in mini-games will have a positive impact on your inventory. Be aware of random drops appearing on screen and if your streamer is partnered with BOBMOB, there will also be special chests containing channel-specific items.
Bundles: A little bit more
Certain items can only be found in Bundles. Available in the Vault these can be acquired in exchange for bits. Each bundle consists of predefined items so you know whats inside before you get them. Make sure to check for new releases.
Action Bar: How to Dank Meme Fast
The action bar allows for quick access to your favourite items, thus enabling instant reactions to stream events. Items can be placed and removed by simple drag & drop from the inventory to the action bar. The action bar itself can be re-positioned (drag & drop) in case it covers any stream content in its default position. If desired, the action bar can be disabled in the settings tab.
Feeling lucky? Check out the mini-games to earn treasure chests. Expect more sophisticated games to come in the future.
Chat Commands: Going out with a !bob
Each consumable can also be triggered by chat commands. When you hover over a consumable in the inventory with your mouse, a tooltip shows up. The chat command to trigger this item directly from chat is displayed there.
Settings: Why aren't there good defaults?!!!
There are; but if you still feel the need to change something, you can do so in the settings tab. You can disable treasure chests randomly appearing if you don’t care for drops (even though that´s just silly…), hide other BOBs if you think all the pleb BOBs can’t compete with yours, or hide the action bar if action is not for you…
Check the leader board, track your achievements and find out what other BOBs are up to.
