UpStage v1

Stage Settings

You want to manage the Chat or the background color ? Use the Settings tool.

Use the settings icon in the left-hand toolbar to access a number of stage settings that you can control in real time during a performance.

Click on the Settings icon. The Settings overlay will appear at the top of the stage.

The Settings overlay gives the following options:

Hide reactions

This allows you to hide or show the reaction emojis that the audience can make appear along the bottom of the stage. This is useful if you don't want your performance to be visually disturbed, or if someone is over-using the emojis in a way that is disruptive.

When you click to hide the reaction emojis, the red icon will change to a green one and the text changes to Show Reactions, indicating that now when you click it, the reaction emojis will be displayed again. Look at the chat window, just above the input field, to see the emojis appear and disappear when you click the button.

Hide Chat

This removes the chat window completely from the stage. It is useful if you want a full screen image with the focus solely on your performance. The audience are no longer able to chat and comment.

Players can still chat privately via the Player Chat, and avatars are still able to speak. To make your avatar speak when the chat window is not showing, click on the red icon above the avatar you are holding. An input field appears. Type here and hit enter. Your avatar will speak the text. If the chat window is displayed again, the avatar's text will also be visible there.

When you click to hide the chat window, the red icon will change to a green one and the text to Show Chat. Now when you click the icon, the chat window will reappear.

Clear Chat

This removes all of the chat from the chat window. This can be useful at the start of a performance if there is left-over chat from rehearsals.

Chat position

The chat window can be placed on either the right-hand side of the stage (the default position) or the left-hand side of the stage. You can change this by clicking on the Chat Position icon.

The icon will change to show which side of the stage the chat is on. You may need to know this if you are hiding and showing the chat during a performance.

Change background color

You can change the color of the stage background using this color picker. The background remains visible when no backdrop is displayed, when a browser is not in fullscreen or when the window size is wider than the stage.

Masquerade as audience

It's useful to be able to see how things will look for the audience on your stage. This can be done easily without leaving the stage by using the "Audience View" button in the Settings overlay. 

Click on the Audience View button and you will see the stage as the audience sees it. To return to player view, click on the masquerade icon that has appeared in the top right hand corner of the stage.

Note that when you are masquerading as audience, your text in the chat window will also appear as audience - light grey - with your nickname.
