RGT Cycling Spectate Mode

SPECTATE MODE

This sounds great, but What is it?

The RGT Spectate Feature is a series of Screen App commands that enables you to view other athletes as they make their way around the RGT world. You need to be logged in and participating in a ride or event to do this.

You can only spectate for 30 minutes without riding yourself before you are removed from the server.

Who is it For?

This is not for broadcasters, this is a tool for streamers and athletes.

It is designed to enable you to take a quick look at other athletes, to see where they are and what they are doing.

How Does It Work?

ALL APPS MUST BE UP TO DATE FOR THESE COMMANDS TO WORK

Toggle Spectate On and Off

Shift F6 – Change to spectate mode
Shift F6 – Change to rider mode

Camera movement

Left click mouse and drag left – Rotate camera to the right
Left click and mouse drag right – Rotate camera to the left
Left click and mouse drag up – Rotate camera to the down
Left click and mouse drag down – Rotate camera to the up

Camera Zoom

Mouse roller forward – Zoom in
Mouse roller backward – Zoom out

Rider Selection

(When in Spectate mode)

Page Up – Move one rider ahead
Page Down – Move one rider Behind
End – Takes you to the lead rider
Home – Takes you back to your own rider (the stream bot)

Additional controls

When in spectate mode (shift F6) you can revert back to the stock camera options available on the Mobile App. EG, Moto Cam, and Race Cam.

The rider you are viewing can only be changed in the Spectate View.

If you are watching a rider in the Moto View, you will need to revert to the Spectate view (Shift F6) before using the Page Up and Page Down buttons to select a new rider

If for example you are watching the leader and choose to use the Moto Camera on the mobile app and then want to return to the chasing group you will need to press Shift and F6 again to enable the Page Up and Page Down rider selection to work.

Rider Names

Use the Toggle in the Mobile App to make switch rider names on and off

Picture in Picture (PIP)

Shift F8 – Toggle the PIP on
Shift F8 – Toggle the PIP off

When in spectate mode is activated the PIP feature places the spectated rider in a picture that overlays the main screen. This appears in the bottom right-hand corner of the main screen.

This means you can focus on a rider or group in the small overlay screen whilst at the same time looking at another rider or group of riders in the main screen.

When the rider is selected and PIP is activated, the spectate mode functions apply and riders can be changed for the main view with the PIP rider staying the same.

This is Important

You can only spectate another athlete for 30 minutes before your sessions is ended. This stops “stalking” and camping.

Etiquette

Don’t be a stalker
Don’t follow people around, it’s just a bit weird

Don’t tell tales
This has not been implemented to check the performances of riders. So try and keep this in mind.

Don’t be a douche
Just be sensible with it.

Rules

There is one hard and fast rule for the spectate function.

Do not create spectate specific accounts without contacting community@rgtcycling.com first. Having an account to spectate only is not allowed.

    Hi,
    I love the idea of this feature but cant understand how it works with an iPad running the screen app. There isnโ€™t a function key on the ipad so I cant toggle the spectator mode on.

      Sorry but that’s the way it is I’m afraid ๐Ÿ™ Maybe an external Bluetooth keyboard might work. Post in the FB group to see if any others have tied that option ๐Ÿ™‚
