I’m developing a TwitchPlays-style game, where entering specific commands into twitch chat is the primary means of playing the game being streamed. My project utilizes twitch IRC and can send and receive whispers perfectly fine, and can receive chat messages, but messages sent to chat only appear in chat after a webpage refresh. After refreshing, the text is greyed out, which defeats the purpose of my bot trying to notify/respond to chat.
What could be the cause of this?
NOTE: I’m using two accounts:
- My IRC bot’s account + channel, and
- My usual twitch account (to sit in the bot’s channel and test it’s functionality)
