Lets Play: FF7 Hardcore
« on: 2011-07-18 10:17:53 »
Im going to do a lets play of GjoeRulvs FF7 hardcore. Im going to also use all the mods from here in my videos.

I need to know a good video convertor to reduce the massive size of FRAPS avi's to a more reasonable level with little loss of detail. For 20 mins im thinking of around 1 gig. What do you suggest? Also what should I use to record audio over the file?(Commentary)

Also I need suggestions on how to alter my playing style to highlight the new tactics involved because I just always followed my old tactics of power-level, spam hero drink/megalixer, etc lol.

Here are some examples

Thats cool. I was planning on another release soon. The changes are late in the game, so you need to postpone or anything. I will also make one change to the flevel (command counter added in blue materia cave).

I can provide some strategy.
Are you planning a full play through?

Yes, Im going to edit for asthetics, But Im going to show EVERY LAST PIXEL, command, everything at least once in the videos.

Also I asked for help on programs at overclock.net and a fellow there said it would be a good idea to create a post over there showcasing qhimm.coms work. I told him IDK, as I havent created much but I would put what Ive created up and have to ask the mod owners indiviually if they mind if I posted there work.

Make no mistake if I were to do such a thing I would garner most anyones mod over mine and give nice, big bolded credits to the owners for there work. Just an idea dont get mad at me or anything  ;)

Yeah I do need some specific strategy for the tweaks youve done, so that I can showcase what you have done. I would like to do this by starting the fight using a regular FF7 users orthadox stategy, and then getting pummeled, and having to switch to the proper new strategy.

For a video convertor/editor, I use avidemux. For a 3 minute video, the size is 118MB with 720p resolution. Here's a sample of what it looks like on youtube. I don't have any preference for audio commentary, as long as you use it more or less sparingly... actually I prefer the textboxes.

Hehe... you need more strategy with gjoerulv's mod... I think it might have to do with me being a dumb dumb, but once in a while I have to stop and think, "What did I do wrong here? Why am I getting my ass kicked by a regular mob". But there's always at least a way to get around.
