The extension will only appear on your stream when your stream is set to the Expeditions: Rome category.
  • Where should I position my camera to stream with this extension?
    The best location for your camera is the lower left corner of your stream. Currently, extension elements for viewers appear toward the upper and center left of the screen during combat and the lower right side of the screen.
  • How do I explain the extension to my audience?
    This extension was designed specifically for Expeditions: Rome to allow viewers an unprecedented level of access to a streamer’s game session on Twitch. Viewers can control a multitude of aspects of the game live while it is being streamed. NPC characters can be named after viewers The combat log allows viewers to catch up on actions that have taken place in the game session Viewers can grief or help the streamer in various ways during combat Viewers can send care packages to help the streamer during the broader campaign. We encourage you to walk your viewers through the extension by showing yourself viewing your own stream on screen and clicking different buttons on the extension, so they know where to go easily.
  • What can I set in the Twitch Configuration?
    We’ve put a lot of effort into adding in-game controls to help streamline your streaming experience with the extension. There are also some settings that made more sense to control via the Twitch Creator Dashboard. For the Creator Dashboard settings, you can navigate to the Extensions section of your Creator Dashboard and click "My Extensions". Find the Expeditions: Rome Tribune extension and click the cog wheel to open an Extension Configuration window. Here you can select from the following categories: Renaming, AI Targeting, Dialogue Voting, Status Effects, and Care Packages. Enemy Renaming: You can turn enemy renaming on or off and set a Denarii amount to decide how much a viewer would need to spend to rename an NPC. Status Effects: Here you can set the denarii cost for each status effect a viewer can use. Some are more powerful, such as full heal or knocked down, so you’ll want to set those costs higher. Care Packages: Here you can set the amount of Denarii a viewer must spend to send you a particular package. The benefit of each care package (amount of food sent, medicine given, etc.) is random and cannot be selected by you or your viewers. Passive Denarii: There are two ways your viewers can get denarii: when they join your stream and for the amount of time they spend on your stream. Here you can toggle off or on the ability to give viewers denarii when they join (101 denarii, locked) and the ability to passively earn denarii (20 denarii every 10 minutes). Denarii is the currency your viewers can use to manipulate gameplay in the extension. Note: You can update the denarii amounts at any point in gameplay and an alert will be shown to your viewers along with the updated denarii amounts.
  • What can I configure in-game?
    We wanted to make the process of changing extension settings as streamlined as possible, but it did make more sense to have some settings directly in-game rather than the Twitch Creator Dashboard. In-game, we set up more discrete controls for game actions while the extension configuration largely handles denarii. You can change these settings at any time during your gameplay by navigating to the options menu in-game. What do the configuration settings in-game do? Dialogue Voting: Polls start automatically will automatically trigger a chat vote in-game. When this is toggled off, you can manually select to start a vote. Enforce Winning Poll Choice: You have the option to have the game automatically select chat’s choice for you or you can toggle off this setting and choose to take chat’s choice or not. Duration: This is the length of time that your poll runs for. You can also choose to end a poll whenever you want. Care Packages: You can toggle off or on each of the different options for care packages (food and water,medicine, denarii, legion reinforcements) Combat Actions: Here you can set the combat actions off or on. Combat actions are all or nothing; either you have them turned on or off. Combat actions include: full heal, knock down, rename. re-target, savage, rallied, weakened, and disarm. Notification Sounds: get notified when people send you care packages in-game.
  • What is Denarii and why would I want to change the Denarii price of certain actions?
    Since we keep bringing up denarii, it’d help to explain what it is: denarii is an in-extension currency used to perform non-free actions in the extension. Viewers can get denarii in three ways: When they join your stream; Passively by continuing to watch the stream; And in exchange for bits. Note: The denarii they earn and acquire exists in your channel. Viewers can purchase numerous actions with Denarii during your Expeditions: Rome streams. This can get incredibly chaotic (and fun!) during your streams and create great audience moments. But it’s not always the right time to have chat light the entire battlefield on fire. Luckily, you can change the Denarii cost of actions easily at any time from the Twitch Creator Dashboard. Any costs you change will automatically update live to the extension, meaning your viewers will immediately see the changes you’ve made.
  • How do I change the Denarii price of certain actions?
    Go to your Creator Dashboard on Twitch and navigate to the Extensions menu. Click "My Extensions" at the top and find the Expeditions: Rome Tribune extension. Click the cog wheel to enter the configuration menu. From here you can select a category and customize features from there. The only actions that can be assigned a Denarii amount are Renaming, Status Effects, and Care Packages. You can set these amounts to anything you like, including 0 for no cost(this displays as “free” in the extension). Remember that Denarii and Twitch Bits are 1:1, so if an action costs 500 Denarii, that would be 500 Bits or $5.00 USD.
  • How do I adjust the dialogue voting settings?
    We’ve added a number of options to help you automate how dialogue voting works. We did this so those who would like to leverage votes frequently can create a process that works best for them. You can only change Dialogue Voting settings from in-game under the Options>Twitch menu. Settings include: Automatic Poll Start, Enforce Winning Poll, and Duration. Automatic poll start will automatically trigger a chat vote in-game. When this is toggled off, you can manually select to start a vote. Enforce Winning Poll Choice will have the game automatically select chat’s choice for you as opposed to giving you reign to take or leave the audience choice. Setting the duration for longer will allow your audience more time to vote on the options, which may increase the amount of division between options and a harder choice.

  • How can I see the extension?
    If you don’t immediately see the extension when the streamer has it activated, you may need to allow the extension to appear. When you hover your mouse over the stream, a small box should appear on the right side of the stream window. Click this box and make sure that the extension is set to be visible. This should automatically be turned on unless you have turned it off for this extension in the past. Additionally, you can try navigating to the cog wheel in this window and clicking "Manage Access" to be sure that you have given proper access to the extension. Please note: the following instructions only apply if you are viewing a stream on a desktop or desktop view. Unfortunately, Twitch currently does not allow access to extension features for viewers on mobile or consoles.
  • How do I verify my Twitch account with the extension?
    Access the extensions setting menu for viewers by hovering over the stream and clicking the small box on the right side of the stream window. Click "Manage Access" and verify your TwitchID to grant verification to the extension. Verifying allows you to receive passive denarii and denarii for joining a stream if the creator has that enabled. If you haven't shared your Twitch ID, you'll see this alert to remind you to share until you dismiss it.
  • Why do I need to verify my Twitch account to use the extension?
    Our extension uses your TwitchID to identify who you are and what actions you have done to notify the streamer of who has completed which actions. The extension also allows you to purchase Denarii using your Twitch Bits, so it needs to be able to see how many Bits you have.
  • Why can’t I see the combat actions?
    The Combat Action options will only appear when the creator streaming the game is in combat. If the streamer is at camp, this menu will not appear. When combat begins, a box will appear near the upper left-hand corner of the stream window with a prompt “Chat, Click to Start”. Click this box to open the Combat Actions menu and see all the available combat options. If the map launcher does not appear, the creator has disabled combat actions. You will still be able to see Party Roster, Quests, and other game details.
  • How do I give the creator a care package?
    Depending on the settings that the streamer has chosen, you may be able to send care packages of Denarii, medicine, units, or food to the streamer. You can do this while the streamer is not in combat by clicking the purple circle near the lower right-hand corner of the stream window. This will open a menu of other options. Find the "Care Packages" option and select which care package you would like to send. The number of resources is randomized within a range, but each care package will include a good number of rewards to help your favorite streamer along in their adventure.
  • How do I get more Denarii?
    In the extension, Denarii is the currency you can use to purchase various actions to affect the streamer’s game. You can get more Denarii by converting any Bits you have to Denarii through the extension. 1 Bit is equal to 1 Denarii. Once your Bits are converted , that Denarii can only be used in that streamer’s extension. If you go to another stream, you will need to purchase Bits and convert to Denari again to purchase actions on their extension. You can view your Denarii balances for every streamer whose extension you’ve participated in from the extension. Navigate to the Denarii tab in the Combat map or click on the "Get Denarii" link in the worldmap UI to view your denarii balances on each creator’s channel. There are a couple ways you can receive Denarii for free while watching your favorite streamer: You will receive 20 Denarii every 10 minutes, or 120 Denarii every hour you’re watching someone stream Expeditions: Rome with the extension enabled. You will also receive an initial 100 Denarii when you first share your TwitchID with the extension. To receive this free denarii, the streamer must have both of these enabled in the Twitch Configuration. Please note that to get more Denarii, you must have Twitch Bits to convert. If you do not have Bits, please purchase them through Twitch (not the extension) and then navigate to the extension to convert to Denarii.
  • How do I vote on dialogue choices?
    When a streamer opens a dialogue choice to chat, you will see the dialogue options appear as an overlay over the stream and you can click directly on the option you wish to vote for before the timer runs out. No need to type anything in chat, simply click your screen!
  • The extension hasn’t registered that I converted Bits to Denarii, what should I do?"
    The extension will only register that you have converted Bits to Denarii if you have Bits to convert. First make sure that you have the number of Bits you would like to convert to Denarii. If you have confirmed that you have the proper number of Bits, refresh the stream and try again. Usually refreshing the page helps push updates through the extension. If you have further issues, email us at and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
  • Where can I see that the action I bought has gone through to the game?
    When you select an action and use Denarii to make it happen, your action will appear for a moment on the creator’s stream, near the upper right-hand corner in a purple banner. These can go pretty quick and may take a moment to appear depending on how many actions are happening at once. You can also check the Combat Log to see actions you’ve done, actions other viewers have made, and what has happened in the streamer’s game.
  • What if the streamer loads an old save after I spend Denarii?
    If a streamer ultimately decides to load a save that happened before you exchanged your Denarii for an action, your Denarii does not get refunded back to you. The choice to load an older save from before extension actions occurred is up to the individual creator.
