Counters can be a fun way to track different aspects of your stream. This could be a death counter, win counter or a counter to track how many drinks you have had on stream. With Streamelements adding a counter to your stream is relatively easy. Let’s jump in and show you how to set up a counter command using Streamelements.

How To Add A Counter Command To Twitch

For the counter command we will have to add a custom command to our bot. Follow the steps below to set up a custom command.

Step 1 – Make StreamElements A Mod In Your Channel

If you have not already made Streamelements a mod on your channel you will need to this before any commands or auto moderation will work. To do this open up your Twitch channel and navigate to Profile Picture –> Creator Dashboard –> Chat Box.

In the chat box type /mod streamelements

This will mod the Streamelements chat bot in your chat allowing you to use commands on in your stream.

Step 2 – Create A Custom Counter Command

In Streamelements navigate to Chat bot –> Chat Commands –> Custom Commands –> Add New Command.

Here we can create a command that increase our count using the count variable in Streamelements.

Set the command name. In this example I am using wins as an example. The user level for this should be moderator as you don’t want your viewers to be able to increase the count.

In the response section you can add the response you want using the ${count} variable. You can copy and paste the code from below and adjust to your liking. The word after “count” should be the name of your command.

Mavrix has ${count wins} wins this Stream.

You can now test this in your chat. Just type the name of your command !wins.

Every time you or a moderator types !wins in the chat your counter will increase.

Now that we have created a counter we need to give our viewers a way to view the count. To do this we can create a second command that anyone in the stream can use.

Step 3 – Create a Command For Viewers

In Streamelements navigate to Chat bot –> Chat Commands –> Custom Commands –> Add New Command.

Here we can create a second command for viewers that will allow them to view your counter at any time.

Set your command name. For this example I will use “!trackwins”. This is what your users will type in to retrieve the current number of wins.

In the response section you can add a message using the ${getcount} variable. This pulls the count number for a specific command. After get count add your original command you created. For this example that is wins. You can copy and paste the code below and edit to your liking.

Mavrix has currently had ${getcount wins} wins today!

Click on activate command and your viewers will now be able to track how many wins you have had.

We can now test this in our Twitch chat. Just type “!trackwins” in the chat to see how many wins the counter is currently on.

That’s all you have to do to set up a counter on your stream.

How To Reset A Counter On Streamelements

If you want to reset or change the number on a counter you can easily do this using the default !editcounter command.

If you wanted to change our wins counter to 0 you would type the following in your chat. This is a moderator only command.

!editcounter wins 0

You can see how this works in your chat below.

That’s everything you need to know about settings up and editing counters using Streamlabs.
