Twitch Stream Integrations

When The Shenmue Dojo Streams, users will be able to view the stream and comment on it on the main site. During streaming, news is pushed down, and the stream takes center stage. Once the stream is over, its back to normal.

The user can also view the whole stream and chat in fullscreen mode directly from the front page of the main site.

Game Page Intro Banner
The banner for the game intro section has been optimised for speed and readability.

Dynamic Header

In this update we included a feature we wanted for a while, but never got around to. Inter changing header images on the front page. As for now, on page load/reload the image on the top changes, we might change this later on so that it changes "live". Many thanks to @RIKENZ for allowing us to use his images!

Currently there are 7 images (which includes the standard "clean" background). We will be adding more later on.

Apologies for the inconvenience, but our Media Gallery is having some issues. Despite showing no thumbnails whatsoever, the images are... there, if you hover your cursor over any area of the page. It's a bit of a weird issue that will take us some time to figure out, but hopefully we have things back to normal ASAP.

Edit: Now working again
