Hi all,

I've started to make some videos for my YouTube channel.

Seems I was a bit premature with the post last night, but the HD versions are available, but even still, the quality isn't great on this first video. :(

Hey all, just to let you know, I've moved my old guide videos to YouTube now. They're obviously just there for posterity reasons, sometimes its nice to look back and see how far things have come.

More videos to come :)

Getting properly annoyed with the matched content in Entropia to copyrighted media though :(

Please feel free to post any feedback about the videos, and don't forget to subscribe to both this thread and the channel!! :)

Yet more video spam from me.

Just added the Vistas of Arkadia video, apologies for the darkness of most of it, it wasn't that dark when I was filming but it seems some Gamma was lost in the translation to video!

Anyhow, I hope people find it interesting/entertaining. Please subscribe to the channel for more videos later on!

Hehe, yeah that is the society I created, I left Septimus in charge while I was in Black Sun, but he doesn't log anymore from what I can tell, so going to be a challenge to get it back :(.

Kids these days, don't realise that the games they run on their phones, would have required about 10 Amigas linked up, a cathode ray television and a joystick to work!

They rest on the shoulders of giants and have no clue. Well me being a C64 kid already scoffed at my father's first pocket calculator, a 1971 build he proudly showed me at a visit to his workplace and three of which would have bought a car at the time. They flew to the moon with these things, and I couldn't be impressed. Guess it's all repeating.

My grandfather owned a vic-20, I remember the endless print-out of go codes to create a game, that in the end, I couldn't be less interested in (I was so into Transformers that even computers games were just not 'a thing' for me!)

Thanks for sharing your videos :)

I use Fraps but my PC isn't really for gaming and, as much as I'd like to, I can't push it past 'medium' graphics setting. What hardware/software do you use?

Was thinking about doing voice over and 'video in screen' too but no idea how to start doing that.

Hey, no problem.

I'm currently using the Loilo Game Recorder : http://loilo.tv/gb/product/game_recorder.

I found it to be quite good at scaling down the quality (and thus saving disc space) but unfortunately, it does have a tendency to crash things it finds that have a direct draw surface on them (it can crash EU and also Movie Maker!)

I know SausageFingers said he was using Fraps and he also has his face on screen too, so whether that is a fraps function or not I have no idea, I tended to steer away from fraps due to the file sizes it creates.

Hope that helps.
