The popular streamer xQc finally had to explain why he had a box called “cheats” on his computer after accidentally showing his screen from the fold bars directly. The reason for this was much more innocent than some fans had hoped.
Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel is one of Twitch’s most popular streamers, with a number of followers of more than 4.4 million. Thanks to the sheer amount of streaming he does, it’s no wonder something dramatic or hilarious happens every day while he’s live.
This time, people thought Felix was really messing up when he accidentally unveiled his computer screen.
Lengyel made matters worse by panicking as the screen showed, probably just worried that something private might accidentally show up.
xQc explained that he was pressing to mute, and when he clicked on it, it finally pulled up a screen full of files. The names of the folders include ‘Battery’, ‘Bit and Sub Badge Files’, along with games like Cyberpunk 2077 and Fall Guys.
It did not take long before one folder caught the viewers’ attention: one called ‘Cheats’. Almost as soon as the page was opened, it was locked, but chat was able to grab the suspicious named folder and flood xQc with comments about it.
Felix then explains why the folder is named exactly like that, and it was much less incriminating than it initially seemed.
“These are Minecraft fashion packages. I have a ‘cheat’ folder, that’s just how it works. ‘ After a moment, he thinks, ‘Oh, this is not even Minecraft. This is Pokémon. I’m dumb, it’s actually Pokémon. ‘
“Every time you download a game like Pokemon and a random, and you random, there’s something called ‘cheats,’ and the cheats can make the game different,” he continued.
‘If you do a certain run, you must use a cheats folder. These are called cheats because you cheat the game, you cheat it. Either to make it harder, or easier. ”
This did not stop the conversation from making jokes about the accidental revelation, but at least Felix’s explanation illustrated the real reason he had a subject on his computer called cheats.
The use of any kind of cheats or hacks in games is against Twitch’s community guidelines (not to mention the chances of you being banned from the game as well). Of course, xQc will of course stay well away from anything that is wrong during games. However, mods are allowed on Twitch, provided it does not give an unfair advantage to the account owner in an online multiplayer game. ‘
