Hey what’s up everyone, it’s Derek with Nerd or Die, and I’d like to introduce you to our Glitch premium alerts package. This new item contains 5 unique designs that will work for Twitch, YouTube, and Mixer. Also, you’ll be able to customize the color of both the text and the animation as well. Meaning you can create a color scheme that matches your channel. This is all done with custom controls within StreamLabs – making it easy to setup and customize. It also allows you to use with almost any language as well. This is by far one of my favorite alert packages yet, so I hope everyone enjoys it!

Let’s get right into it.

To get started, head over to the Nerd or Die shop to purchase and download this item. Once you have the project files extracted onto your computer, go ahead and open up the Read Me. The Read Me has detailed instructions and images that will help you get the alerts setup inside of your account, and also contains customization information.

Let’s first get the alerts setup in our account, then I’ll show you how to customize the alerts.

First, log in to your Stream Labs account, then go ahead and click the quick setup link either in the Read Me or from the download files. Click “Create Profile” towards the bottom, and give your profile a name and hit Create. Next, to import all the settings, hit USE on your newly created profile.

Next, let’s go ahead and add this into OBS Studio. Make sure you’re on the alertbox tab in StreamLabs and then find your widget URL. In OBS, add in a browser source, then paste in your widget URL. Change the height and width to at least 800 each. I personally like to have my width be 1920, in case I get some longer names in my alerts. Once that’s finished, you can run a few tests to make sure things are working properly. You’ll notice that the alerts are defaulted to white animations and white text.

So, let’s edit the colors. Choose the type of alert you’d like to edit, for this example I’ll do my Twitch subscriptions. This process works the same for each type of alert. First, it’s important to note that you will not use the message template box like you would for your normal alerts. However, sounds and text-to-speech controls will work normally. Scroll down until you see the “Custom Fields” tab, and click on that. This tab contains controls to customize your alerts.

The top text area will represent what message is contained in the top part of the alert. It’s important to know that both text boxes are compatible with the dynamic template tags, so if you’d like to change things up a bit, you can use template tags such as {amount}, {months}, and {count}, in curly braces, directly inside these boxes, just like you would in the message template area above.

The next two options are the colors for each of your text colors. You can use the color pickers or type in a hex code for the colors that you’d like to use.

Finally, we have Animation Hue, Saturation, and Brightness.


For this section, I’m going to have the Read Me opened on the left side and the Stream Labs custom controls on the right. When you scroll down a bit in the Read Me, you’ll find controls to preview your alert. Most importantly, you’ll find sliders that let you change the hue, saturation, and brightness.

Let’s start with the hue, which will basically rotate the color of the background animation. Adjust this slider until you get a color close to what you’re looking for. Next, use the saturation slider to make the color more vibrant or more dull. By default, the 100 value is already pretty saturated, so going up won’t change much with the main color. Finally, change the brightness slider, where higher will make the color lighter, and lower will make it darker.

If you’re looking to get a completely black background color, then you can slide this all the way down to 0. For white, you’d want to slider to be all the way up, with the saturation all the way down.

If you’d like, you can also change the color of the text here as well, to preview all the changes completely.

Once you’re done picking your color combo, go ahead and copy these values into the custom fields found in StreamLabs. Basically, just match the slider values, and you’ll be good to go!
