Title: Share your videos!
Post by: W8taminute on July 15, 2014, 03:00:54 PM
Hi guys,

We have a 'Share your screenshots' thread so why not one for videos as well?  These days the trend in watching other people play games is rising so why not have a groghead contribution to the rage?

This is my first YouTube video and it's probably not the best quality so any criticism is welcome.  I played an arcade session of War Thunder today on my PS4 and created a movie with Share Factory.  I haven't dared tried simulation mode in War Thunder because I'm too chicken but arcade mode has been entertaining me quite well.  It's been a while since I've played WT however and I was happy with my first outing and decided to share the action with you.  Hope you like it!

Great idea!  O0

Cool vid! Is War Thunder like World of Tanks?
Title: Re: Share your videos!
Post by: W8taminute on July 15, 2014, 04:51:46 PM
^Thanks!

The tank portion of the game is somewhat similar to WoT.  The maps in War Thunder are definitely larger and therefor allow for more tactics and sneaking around than in WoT.  WoT plays easier I think but WT offers, even in arcade mode, a little bit more in terms of realistic physics and handling. 

I would say that when you have the energy to think and strategize a bit play WT, but when you just want a series of relaxed sessions without too much thought play WoT.  I don't mean to knock one game down and promote the other.  Both of these games offer large doses of entertainment depending on what kind of mood you are in.

Nice video!  You have reminded me that I really need to get back to WT.  I was really looking forward to the open beta of the tank warfare portion, but after playing it for a single day I just forgot about it for some reason. 

Is Share Factory your video channel?

Maybe the mods should sticky this thread?  I am sure others will have videos to share in the future.

Hi Rooks,

Share Factory is an app for the Playstation 4 that you can use to create movie projects.  I do have a YouTube channel under the username W8taminute1941.   ;)

You asked for it you got it!

Here are my mission results from another session of War Thunder, only this time in the air.  I died a silly death in this movie but come back to redeem myself after I respawn.

I recorded a few of my dogfights in Wings Over Flanders Fields earlier this year.  I encountered some historical aces in a couple of them and the others were from a (short) career contest in an Albatros. 

*Watch them on YouTube for up to 720p resolution options*




This one will give you an idea how bad the SPAD's forward view was.  Sopwiths had far better visibility than these!



Full list including four more vids here:

https://www.youtube.com/user/NefariousKoel/videos



I didn't make any commentary over them, as I only recorded the fights not the flying around on patrol parts.  The dogfights were pretty self-explanatory being mostly habit & instinct.  Although I did have to use different tactics between flying the Sopwith Pup or Albatros (more turn fighting) versus the SPAD VII (more vertical maneuvers). 

I haven't done any "Let's Play" type stuff for strategy games yet.  These little dogfight videos take little to get them up, but my upload speeds aren't terribly good either (my local "village" is one of the few that doesn't have Google Fiber yet here in KC) so they still take some time to upload 720p vids.

I used the built-in 'ShadowPlay' feature on my Nvidia GTX760.  I think it only works on the newer series 7 cards, though.  Maybe some of the higher-end GTX6** series too?

What's cool is that, besides just plain recording your gameplay, you can also set it to record a specific amount of time prior to your present time.  So you don't have to use up a bunch of recording space on your drive that you won't be using.  Although the earlier version of ShadowPlay I used would occasionally get a digital vid glitch (I think there is a very brief example in one of my vids).

The recording quality is okay in ShadowPlay, and you can do some basic adjustments.  My vids above can be tough to make out little details at lower resolutions just because the game's colors are mostly dark earthy tones - so it can be tough to spot other aircraft, for example.  The recordings turned out alright.  I believe there was a recent ShadowPlay update too.

Dunno if you even have a ShadowPlay compatible video card, but it's nice because 1) It's Free!  and 2) It's easy to use.

I use Bandicam.  It is freeware and available here (http://www.bandicam.com/).  I don't make many videos, so the most recent vid I made was back in January where I attempted a recreation of a battle I had take place in Flashpoint Campaigns: Red Storm.  I'd thought it would be interesting to see it from a 3D perspective:

Hi Nefaro,

Those videos of WOFF are incredible.  Is the immersion that good?  No wonder why a lot of people claim it's the best WW1 flight game.  In the first video near the end it looks like your gun ran out of ammunition just after you set the enemy on smoke?  Is that true or did you simply realize you damaged him enough to send him down so you stopped firing?

In the second video I noticed some crackling noises when you got close to your prey and fired at him.  Was that the sound of your bullets hitting his canvas and wood airframe?

Yes, I ran out of ammo.  At that point, the enemy pilot was critically wounded or dead as he had stopped maneuvering awhile before then.  I was just trying to set him alight with what little ammo I had left.  It's much more difficult to get a quick kill with only one gun - especially the Maxim model with the lower rate of fire.

In the second video I noticed some crackling noises when you got close to your prey and fired at him.  Was that the sound of your bullets hitting his canvas and wood airframe?

Yeah, that was his canvas ripping and wood cracking from my bullet hits.  Luckily his pilot was wounded and had stopped maneuvering at that point because I screwed up & overshot.  Had to nose down to stay out of his gunsight.  :)) 

You can also sometimes hear the enemy pilot or gunner screech out in pain if you hit them when up real close. 

The dogfighting immersion is good, but you didn't see the "living" world around you in the WOFF campaigns.  Such as battles raging in No Man's Land down below while you're flying over - can hear the gunfire sometimes.  I've been in numerous dogfights where other allied & enemy flights from different squadrons just happened along and joined in.  Returning to base only to find it being raided by enemy planes, and having to flee because you're out of ammo from an earlier fight.  All kinds of stuff happens.  WOFF may be pricey, but I've not been addicted to a flight sim that much since the old Microprose days back in the 80s.   O0

Also - if you look closely when running the vids at higher resolution, you'll see that those historical aces all have their very own paint jobs.  I had also purchased the extra Skin Pack expansions for WOFF, so I see more variety.   8)

If you follow the link I left in that post, there are four more WOFF vids of me flying a career in an Albatros until being brutalized by a flock of Brits a few missions in.  It's very deadly up there.

Day one of the Destiny Beta.  If you haven't heard of this game before you will when it comes out in september.  There is so much going on with this game and so many different ways of playing it.  The ai is exceptional as well.  He knows how to dodge and weave and use cover during a firefight.  He also has an annoying habit of sensing when you are trying to flank him.  That's when the ai shows off it's skills by trying to refuse his side if you will.  He'll try to outflank you as you are trying to flank him.  It's almost as if you're playing against another human.

This is one of the early missions in the game that is part of the story.  You get to roam around and do your own thing fairly early as well so you don't have to stick to the story if you don't want to.  But to unlock more levels and planets to get to you must play some of the story.

I was playing the story mode against the ai but there is a online multiplayer mode to the game as well.  I haven't tried that yet but I will later on tonight. 

The cool thing about the single player story is that other players can appear in your world and co-operatively help you with your missions and quests.  You can see evidence of that in the beginning of my video.

Hi Grim,

No I think this is only a console version game.  I don't think Bungie is planning on releasing it to pc.  But then I came across this link that says something else:  http://www.vcpost.com/articles/24797/20140718/destiny-pc-game-halo-steam-bungie-release-date-leaked-companion-game-release-itunes-google-play-rumors-xbox-one-xbox-360-playstation-3-playstation-4.htm


I'm with Rayfer as well.  Is this thread worthy of being stickied?


jomni that is some interesting footage.  In the FSX part of the clip is that you talking to the control tower or is that all ai conversations?  I like the graphics better in X-Plane but the dialogue sounds better in FSX.

Ok, thanks...I have an xbox one as well, so maybe will still give it a whirl at some point.

I would support the sticky as long as we don't get too many...nothing more frustrating then having to scroll down a page just to see new content since so much stuck to the top.

Well taking a little break from PCO and went looking for a little mindless run and gunning. You know the kind of game where you say F*ck the story and i don't want to be running short of ammo either. So i looked to my back log of FPS's which is long but distinguished, Now i'm talking about a game with waves of shotgun fodder so not just any FPS will do ....hmmmmmm...A serious sam game would fit..but no i've had a recent Serious sam fix so were going with something different.......After looking I decided on PAINKILLER.. Black edition...I have no experience with the Painkiller series...it starts off promising, meaning not much story  ... Apparently my girl and I die in a car crash and i end up in some nether region and someone offers me a contract, which if i complete i can see my girl again. It's hinted at that the contract comes from the almighty. I guess Lucifer is gathering an army to attack so i'm tasked with taking out Lucifer's 4 generals, which of course are guarded by hordes of minions...this sounds promising in a shallow, point me in the right direction so i can start blasting kinda way.
So here is level 2 , i don't quite finish the level in the 10 minute bandicam time limit, i reach the last room and finish about a minute after the video ends. Off i go with my trusty shotgun ;D

I PRESENT .....PAINKILLER..BLACK EDITION

Here is a short clip of my Curtiss P-36 outing last night.  I head for the left side of the map near where our PT-Boats are for suspected enemy activity.  The goal of this match is to destroy all of the enemy ground targets.  As soon as I achieve 'feet wet' I pick up two bogeys at 12 o'clock low which I dive down on to harass.  As I swing up and around to chase them another bogey takes pot shots at my 2 and I begin to bob and weave to try to shake him.  He gets a couple of glancing blows on me but I fly to the mountain hoping he'll overshoot me and crash.  I think he did.

Then I swing around to find the other two bandits.  One of them gets taken out by my team and I locate the other.  I chase him firing wildly hoping to score a hit which I do.  Then I lose him for a bit.  As I turn around to find him a Russian BB-1 dive bomber comes up and finishes the enemy off getting me an air assist. 

Then it's on to the enemy PT-Boats for a little strafing run.  At this point in the match however we're down 26 to 15.  I manage to destroy 3 boats before our team ultimately loses the match but it was a great session none the less.

A couple of years ago we were tossing around ideas for music to go into the Israel theater for Freefalcon.  I always thought the Crusades soundtrack from M2TW was pretty awesome so I was explaining this to the lead guy, and then I just put together a bunch of garbage clips I had on my hard drive to some music from Crusades as an example. 

So this was the result...clips from the cutting room floor LOL.

Here's another War Thunder clip of my He-111 bomb run.  This is arcade mode and the objective of the mission is to bomb out the enemy bases, shoot down his aircraft, and take out some ground targets.  My bomb load is 8 250kg bombs.  I head over to the right hand side enemy base and on the way over my crew says hello to a passing enemy Wellington in the form of 7.92mm machine gun fire.  Nothing comes out of this brief exchange except maybe a few laughs. 

Then it's on to bombing my target.  I score a few hits then after my bomb load is reloaded (this is arcade mind you so mid air bomb reloads happen) I swing left to begin my next run.  Then I spot a Ju-87 on my 12 o'clock low and think he's on his way to bomb our base.  Except this guy must have seen me and decides he's some kind of Focke Wulf superstar and decides to pursue and engage me!  Well watch what happens when this Stuka takes on my lumbering bomber...

YouTube modifies your vids with their own filters.  Even if the original vid is pristine, it can still make it grainy.

Hit the "YouTube" button in the reply console, above the smilies.  Then paste the url between the pair of brackets.  I usually take out the "s" in the url's "https" because some forums embedding feature won't show such secure links (although this one may so it could be unnecessary).

I was looking through my games and just one of those days you can't decide what to play, if anything.  Open games, close games,.....nothing strikes you. I decided to revisit Doorkickers. This game has got to be the poster child for how to do early access right.
I think i got in at alpha 5 or 6. It was playable and fun then and it's more playable and fun now. I have been playing it off and on again, but not at all since alpha 10. It's now at beta 2 and set for final release no later than November. The Dev's have consistantly improved and added to the game.

Deployment......check
experience&levels......check
perks....... check
snipers.......check
outfitting troopers ...... check
go code chaining ... check
enemies throw grenades ..... check
throw grenades around corners ... check
Editor ......check
Random map gen .... check
workshop support .... check
and more................haven't seen anything about multi story buildings yet.

this game may be the best example on how to do early access right. I cannot recommend this game enough if the material interests you at all.

I started a new game and i'm going through the early stages getting my troopers experience and earning perks. You can also assign roles to your troopers, some need to be unlocked and some weapons need to be unlocked with stars you earn. I'm still in the early levels.




That's a sniper off screen on the right picking off enemies. He targets automatically, but as far as i can seen you have to click on his fire button to get him to shoot, but this is the first level i've seen him so there might be more to it.

I pause...but you don't have too. You can make your run with one plan laid out from the beginning with up to 4 troopers[not sure if they changed that limit] with waypoints and actions. I need the pause except on the really simple levels. It is kind of fun trying to get through some levels with 1 trooper.
I'm also using sic's sound mod for gun sounds and a clean mod for not showing the waypoints and planning stuff for the video replays.

Inspired by Banzai_Cat's B-29 mission AAR (http://grogheads.com/forums/index.php?topic=11041.0) I decided to take my Ki-43 out for a ride for a little War Thunder action.  The following short video is taken from a domination match I fought in today with the Hayabusa.  I recently saw an excellent video guide on this particular plane and how to use it in War Thunder and that also prompted me to try it out. 

What you'll see is me scanning the skies for targets.  I usually play in a P-36 Hawk or a MC 202 while going bomber hunting because I'm too chicken to take on fighter planes to be honest with you.  So today I used the Ki-43 to go bomber hunting.  Not exactly a wise idea because this bird is frail and a few hits from bomber defenses will send her down.  But I found a G4M1 Betty and thought that should be easy.  Watch what happens next. 

Later on some biplane (a prewar He-51) tries to take me out but the Ki-43 is so nimble I easily dodge his wild machine gun spray.  Then a team mate takes the opportunity to kill my hunter because of his tunnel vision.  I made the mistake of giving up too much energy and going into a turn fight with a bi-plane and by rights I should have been punished for that and shot down.  But I lived!

what happens with the landing gear?

That's called bad pilot who hit the wrong button during a dogfight!  LOL.  I meant to put on my combat flaps but instead lowered my gear.  That error happens every so often because of the way the buttons are laid out on the PS4 controller. 


Can you play Realistic or Sim mode on the PS4?

Yes you can!  I have tried realistic but found that by just using the console controller alone is not enough to fly properly.  What I usually do when I fly realistic is to connect my USB keyboard so that I can have access to the advanced flight controls and use the controller for the simple tasks like firing the weapons and pitching, yawing, or rolling the aircraft.

Sim mode is very hard to do on the console even with the keyboard/controller combo.  I am going to try connecting my Logitech Extreme 3D joystick to the PS4 alongside the USB keyboard and see if that helps.  The console controller just doesn't have enough buttons to add trim elevator and trim rudder controls.

I fly realistic mostly and sim mode if they have UK or Japanese maps up that month.  Lots of fun.  If you like the Ki-43, wait until you get your hands on a Ki-84.  That plane is just a killing machine.  I can't understand why so many IJA players complain about it.  As a BnZ fighter with good speed, excellent acceleration and great e-retention, there's little not to like about it.

^Nice service record there SDR!  I'm still working on my T2 research tree as the Japanese and now thanks to you I can't wait to fly the Ki-84. 

I see you play on the PC but that doesn't mean we could possibly run into each other one day as War Thunder allows cross platform matches.  Before I tackle Sim mode though I need to learn how to take off without my plane yawing wildly to the side and crashing into a tent on my way down the runway!

Since I have had this, I have tried to fire up and enjoy Rebirth. I've tried to find "whatever it is" that this game gives me - and I just can't find it in Rebirth. It's a shame really.

Steering wheel. It's nigh impossible to play a decent racing game with anything but a steering wheel. Even controllers are very suited to it - though they are better than keyboard

Steering wheels aren't overly expensive. Non force feedback ones range from about £30 I think and force feedback ones start around £60. But they can get expensive fast after that.

It is a great game. The one thing the AI does that annoys me is they move over and slow right down when they are letting you past - but if you catch up with them from the 100 meter mark, they suddenly pull speed and move back into the racing line - I don't know how many times I've suffered a crash from them doing that.

But it's a fair game. Simulation, probably not in the true sense of the word, but it IS fun  O0

Some weird things going on - for example I'm pretty sure I put realistic gunnery on and as you can see in the video, tracer shows as missing but hits on the JU-88's and also I'm sure I had limited ammo and fuel on and I was throwing ammo around like I had some wee gremlins topping the guns up!

I had just installed the TF mod - and maybe I didn't go back into the settings - I don't know. I'll have to have a look

Oh - and I don't know how I managed to kill so many nose gunners from the back of the plane!

You often don't need a long burst to get a kill since they changed the damage modelling a few months ago.  Unless you're shooting at something made with Stalinwood™.  Your control surfaces can be totally lost in a stiff crosswind in many cases. 

Dunno how many times I heard a single "plink!" and completely lost my elevator control and helplessly plunged into the ground.  Which is just fine but if you don't get such a hit, it seems to take forever sometimes.

Nice video W8....!  If it wasn't for the red print bracketing enemy planes, how would you ever see them? Were enemy planes that difficult to see in real life during the war?

Flight sims don't seem to be able to portray distant aircraft very well.  Much of the problem being the limitations of screen resolution and display pixel size compared to the human eye.  Also the limited framerates makes noticing movement of a distant speck less noticeable.  Then there are color, lighting, and reflection differences that isn't as good either.   Anti-aliasing settings will also make them even more difficult to see since the sub pixel sized specks get their edges further trimmed down.

So most sims compensate by providing brackets or labels under them, when they're in what would normally be considered observable distances IRL.  I like WOFF's approach where the distant specks are displayed as a tiny square pixel dot until it's close enough to be a decent displayable size.  It is a straightforward way to compensate for the lack of definition, and related movement and reflected light cues the human eye has without adding a bunch of brightly colored crap over the targets.  Still requires that you scan about and  holds more immersion that way IMO.

Yep.  Pilot was probably unconscious or dead by the end there.  But I had to be sure, to get the kill.  I've let a few go when I thought they were goners only to find out that they were playing possum and glided home.  They will also go into a diving spin after being hit at high altitude, to feign a fatal injury, then pull out near ground level and make a run for it.

I actually did that the day before.  An Albatros I shot up was smoking and his engine died.  He was gliding back towards his lines and not maneuvering, so I figured he'd probably crash before reaching home.  But he must've managed to do so while I was shooting at one of his 2-seater buddies because my kill wasn't confirmed. 

A big reason I enjoy WOFF is the AI.  It's not always predictable and you definitely notice the differing AI pilot skill levels.  ROF's AI pilots are just terrible, with their constant flying in a flat circle when you get behind them.  ::)   You could see that this guy, while obviously not one of the better AIs, still tried some different defensive maneuvers including a (failed) attempt at scissoring to get me to overshoot.

Had to make sure I got my kill this time!  :knuppel2:

Admittedly, he was one of the easier AI pilots in WOFF.  I recorded this vid as part of testing the latest version of Nvidia ShadowPlay, to make sure it recorded okay.

I'll run across some historical Ace, or get in a huge dogfight, and run into much more trouble soon.  This squadron was posted at a section in the line with the most experienced Jastas on the opposite side, and it's during 3rd Ypres so there will probably be lots of action.

It was very hairy.  Especially when I got hit.  Did you see the red bits on the screen?  They're subtle but I was wounded most of the fight.  Just pissed me off more.  ^-^  The observers are all crack shots, even in novice crews.  I actually turned down the rear gunner accuracy in the game but I've not noticed a difference.  They'll hit your pilot if you fly straight anywhere near them!  :o

The bullet strikes definitely make me jump, but some of the oh-so-near collisions make me gasp.  I've not had many in my vids which were that close but there are times when I don't know how the hell I avoided a mid-air with someone and it's a real butt clencher.  At least with the bullets there is still a chance of survival if they strike my plane.

I play Dead-Is-Dead on my WOFF campaigns, of course.  That's what it defaults to in the settings IIRC.  Hopefully this guy can last past the first month with this squadron so I can get into a Camel.  I'm currently flying a Sopwith Pup.  Been lucky so far.  O:-)


Also... I was awarded a Military Cross and an instant Kill Confirmation when I brought that C.V down almost on top of our airfield.   I guess the CO didn't like those Huns taking a dump on his aerodrome.  :)  Also awarded a week recovering in the hospital.

Ruh Roh. you're making me 'want' this game!

Do you have the first version of the game?  If not, just keep in mind you will have to buy the first version ($39) as well as the second version ($45), plus Combat Flight Simulator (cheap usually under $10, but still a cost).  If your a WW1 flight sim fan, then certainly would likely be worth it but if just casual, it does have a decent cost.  I could never play it well (not the game's fault) so I don't play the game much, so that is why I am holding off on the second version, but from what I saw of it, I loved the campaign and I thought it was overall better than ROF.

I didn't realize you had to buy both versions.. nevermind then.. lol. I did already get CFS III long ago in prep for getting this game, but I used to so pissed off about the 'high' shipping costs, at the time they didn't have a download version. I wasn't going to pay 9 bucks to ship a CD!

Nef, we're you firing the MG hoping that it would give you enough propulsion to make the landing a lil softer!?

Oh, I get it fairly regularly in multi-player.  If not from another player, then from flocks of AI planes in the Co-op servers or ground fire.  I have a couple more ROF vids from yesterday, one of which demonstrates how not to attack two-seaters and the other a low-level pounce over the trenches with enemy troops firing at me the whole time.

I have only been playing on a pair of Full Realism ROF servers.  So there are no labels or anything.  Had to get used to spotting stuff unaided, along with recognizing the gauges and levers in the cockpits.  Raises the tension a good deal when sneaking up on someone is easier due to the difficult spotting, and vice versa.  For the first couple times I tried it, I couldn't see a damn thing down below me with the ground as a backdrop but eventually got used to it, along with liberal use of the zoom commands mapped to my stick.  I also thought navigating by sight would also be difficult in ROF but it's not.

If you run that last vid at high-res on YouTube, you can see one of the planes I was heading to intercept in the distance when my view was zoomed in.  I think that one was probably a friendly but wasn't sure and there was a little gunplay a bit earlier with a couple others, so it was a good spot to bounce into.  >:D

I've left off the labels in single-player too, although the map indicators are still on for when I'm using time compression in auto-pilot.

Yeah, WOFF is very expensive.  Unless you're a crate-flying WWI nut like me then you may not get as much use out of it.  I just dig it for all the little historical details and quality of the dynamic campaign environment.  I think you would be better served getting a relatively inexpensive ROF package for more casual play.  It still has a 'dynamic' campaign, just not quite as good, and a free third party campaign generator that's a bit better.  Also.. multi-player which is usually what I prefer to do most these days now that I've got a little experience in it. 

As for firing my machingeuns on the way down, I got a bit fixated on watching the overwing Lewis gun firing at the end.  It was the end for that pilot, so I wanted to go out with some bangs.   :)) 

I usually don't notice Archie fire in ROF unless I'm really low to the ground.  They're not very effective at all (as historically correct for that war) but they do get lucky sometimes.  It's the mix of machineguns and less travel time for the shells of the big ones down low that can ruin your day if you're not weaving and bobbing.  You can fly in a straight line up high (where I was that time) for ages and not get hit... unless you're me!   :knuppel2:

That SPAD was actually the second guy I had seriously damaged.  The first one I had met over the lines was an SE5a which I chased back over to his side until the dude in the SPAD showed up to assist his stricken buddy.   I shot up two enemy players but managed not to shoot either of them down.  ;D

It was Archie that killed me.  I was dogfighting low over one of their aerodromes at the end so it was only a matter of time.

I have pumped a fair bit of crew experience into the pilot health stat in War Thunder.  I'm quite sure it has helped after getting past ~25.

You can still get pilot killed fairly easily in head-ons, but I get less deaths from other angles.  There for awhile, it seemed like people shooting cannons at you could score regular pilot kills with one hit no matter where it landed on your aircraft.  I think they improved it since then, however.  Always more damage modelling fixes to be done.

If that was based on a historical action, I'm going to guess politics were involved (or maybe ridiculous levels of honor insulted previously). The Japanese had been fighting cav vs shotnpike long enough already by the time guns arrived to know better.

Nice flying there!  I couldn't tell if it was a confirmed kill but that sopwith triplane must have been obliterated by your fire you were so close to him at the end.

Then those two Nieuports jumped you later but you did a great job landing.  I laughed out loud when after you landed you first pulled out the flare gun then the automatic and took pot shots at them!  They should have left you alone when you landed though.  Not very chivalrous of them.

He went down so fast, I didn't see him until I noticed a tiny pile or rubble on the ground a bit later.  I had 'buck fever' the first few bursts but that last one I took the time to aim for the cockpit and gave it a steady burst.  Figured I probably insta-killed that digipilot with a few bullets through the head.

Actually it was two Nieuports and what looked to be at least one Sopwith (Strutter?) that jumped me in the end.  Maybe that Tripe pilot was their buddy and they were hell bent on vengeance?

There is an AAR contest on Syndicate today.  They're running an East Front scenario and giving the winner with the best AAR an Ilya Murmoets bomber in ROF (now that they've merged the Muromets stuff with ROF).  There is some insane dogfights going on.  I've been lucky thus far, despite always being outnumbered, and got two kills for zero deaths.   That probably won't last long.  I've been in a Halberstadt D.II scout getting jumped by pairs of Russkie Nieuport 17s while trying to take out their bombers, having a fun time.  Got a couple recordings of the mix-up.  I'm not gonna submit them for the contest (I hate video editing), just there for the fun.

This was my first 1v2 run-in of the day.  They were having an event on Syndicate server now that the Ilya Muromets sim has been merged with Rise of Flight.  It was an East Front scenario, Austria-Hungary vs Russia.




I tallied both of them before fully engaging, so managed to avoid the drag & bag they were set up for.  I would've been dead if I had taken after the first one without checking around again.  I've come to expect it when there are quite a few people on the server using Teamspeak.

My brain wasn't quite functioning that match. 

I actually thought I had chosen to respawn in a AAA machine, but it was actually the noob Tier I Russian "tank destroyer".  And I was in a Tier II match!

You can see I keep looking skyward, attempting to target the enemy aircraft flying overhead after first respawning.  I was asking myself, "Why the fook won't this damn gun elevate?!  And why is it so damn SLOW to move?!".  LOL.  It made the ending even more hilarious when it happened.  I expected semi-auto gunfire to come out when I held down the fire button.   :2funny:   I actually did plan my aim down the path I expected him to appear in front of me after the strafing, though, so lining that up certainly helped.

Been working my way through the Frozen Synapse campaign - I desperately want to be one of the 1.4% of owners who complete all 54 missions  :) - and encountered one heck of a tough mission today.  In this setup, the player gets two RPGs, one MG, and one shotty to take on...three times that number of AI.  :o  What makes the mission even tougher is that you need to defend an "elevator" from the AI.  That is, if an AI even gets one toe in the green zone for a second, you will lose the scenario.  Yeah, tough.  Well, after about 15 tries  :tickedoff: I finally got a victory!  I think you can see how tough this was just by how frantically my units were running from one side of the elevator to another, taking out threats as fast as they could.



Considering how poorly I did in previous runs, I am amazed that I didn't lose a single vatform, and only lost one yellow civilian.   ^-^  As suspected, victory was determined by the random terrain favoring me, as well as a lot of luck!

EDIT: Rewatching the vid, I realize I did lose a unit.  My shotty was killed by a sniper.   :buck2:

RB....that was quite interesting and quite fast paced and frantic.  The intro mentioned 10 turns....they all played out in one minute? I don't own the game so I was a bit confused by that.

This particular mission required me to survive and defend the elevator for ten turns, at which point, story-wise, reinforcements would secure the top floor of this building.  In Frozen Synapse terms, 10 turns is a long time.  Most missions are usually over in five or six turns because combat is so deadly. 

If you like cyberpunk or tactical, turn-based games, I highly recommend getting Frozen Synapse.  I consider it one of the finest PC games ever.  The SP campaign is enjoyable with a well-written story and lots of replayability due to its 54 missions with randomized terrain (each playthrough is slightly different, as I amply discovered when I had to do this mission 15 times - LOL!), and the MP is just as fun with it tense gameplay and asynchronous WEGO resolutions (it is a testament to this game that the community is still plenty active - I kept getting spammed with game requests while playing this mission).  And I consider the music to be the best I have ever heard in a game.

Nefaro, your video made me download War Thunder today.  What a blast!  I don't think I've had so much fun since I started flying Airwarrior 20 years ago.  Don't know what I'm doing yet but I'm sure I can figure it out.

You may need to tinker with the Mouse Aim controls a bit, if you are using those.  They may default to "Mouse Joystick", I'm not sure these days.  But you probably want the regular mouse pointer mode and you may also have to invert the vertical axis depending on your preference.

For the aircraft, I bound the control surfaces to WASDQE and the Throttle on L.Shift (down) and Space(Up) since I have Engine Boost set to being held down for use.  You don't have to use those control surface keys, as there is an automatic flight "instructor" that will use them to point your plane at your mouse cursor point.  But they do come in handy sometimes when  you want to override the instructor.  After those you'll want the usual Gear, Flaps, and Airbrakes (although mostly just some dive bombers have the latter).  Also the Drop Bomb and Launch Rocket ones.  I also remapped the Mouse Look to my right mouse button so I could hold it down and look around.  I found TrackIR to be very disorienting in 3rd person view while using the mouse but maybe I'll mess with the settings to get it all adjusted eventually.   Leave the "Mouse Aim" tab selected in the Controls settings so that it is the active scheme, before saving and exiting that screen.   Note the Zoom view toggle too.

You can use Mouse Aim in both Arcade and Realistic Battles Modes.  Simulation Mode requires you to either set up a proper joystick or the in-game mouse joystick emulator.   I've not had much luck getting my joystick sensitivity settings to my liking so I don't play aircraft in Sim mode.  Someone else probably does around here so they may be able to give some tips on it if you need them.  There are also many YT videos about such things. 

Arcade Mode is probably the best way to start, of course, and it helps that you can generally earn more XP and Lions per time spent there since it's just a big scrap with respawns, no take-off and climb out required.  Just be aware that you can't boom & zoom as well in Arcade since the stall modelling is very relaxed (a bit too much even for Arcade I think) but you can still do it with enough altitude/energy advantage.

Make sure you have all the Ammo types, artillery calls, air support calls mapped to keys in the Tanks/Ground Forces Control settings tab too.  The two zooms - the Gunner's Sight and the regular Zoom view like in the aircraft section. 

I've customized much of my key map & settings so I don't recall what the defaults are.  You'll figure out where you want to put stuff with a little practice.   If you want to mess with it all while in-game, click on one of your a/c or tanks and select "Test Drive".  That will put you into an empty map where you can fly/drive/shoot at your leisure and pauses when you hit Escape to adjust your settings.  O0

Get out of arcade!  You're doing yourself a huge disservice by limiting yourself to it (and you'll have to force yourself to re-learn the game and drop a lot of bad habits you'll have picked up there if and when you do make the jump to RB or SB).

I fly with joystick and use the full-real controls for planes in RB and SB.  Setting up the joystick curves is a bit of a chore but it's doable and I find it a lot more fun and rewarding flying with a HOTAS setup than keyboard and mouse.  It's a trade off because the mouse aiming is much more precise than what you can achieve with a joystick but being able to adjust trim axes, prop pitch, and radiators lets you stay in control when you're on the edges of the flight envelope so you can out-fly the mouse guys (and man to they whine about it when you do.)

Not my vid but here's another one showing off how things work in the full-real sim mode.  I found it interesting as he's driving a T-34-85 which is what I prefer to use but his style of play is completely the opposite of mine.  He blitzes straight into the middle of a town (I never go into towns if I can avoid it at all) and once he's in there, he stays pretty static  (I use the speed of the T-34 to try to get around behind guys).  Once the VP falls, he wastes time hunting for a lone tanker in the city rather than pushing the next objective.  Does get some good shots in though.

Sidestrafe along with Bismarck are the two best War Thunder youtubers IMHO.  I also like baronvongames strictly for his entertaining style of video.  Sidestrafe and Bismarck are excellent instructional teachers on the game.

Just a little demo of what I do with my A20 Havoc in War Thunder.  The following is a Domination Arcade battle I fought today.  Went in for a bombing run with my bazooka mounted A20 and attracted a lot of attention.  At one point I lost one of my engines and decided to head for a safe area to land.  A Typhoon decided I would be an easy kill since I was already smoking and my fuselage was severally damaged.  I showed him what happens when you mess with a wounded A20!

Post by: Silent Disapproval Robot on January 26, 2015, 01:45:35 PM
It's free.  You can spend money if you want but it's not really necessary.  It functions quite similarly to WoT in that respect.  You can use real money to buy premium vehicles or in-game currency you can use to speed up XP gains, buy mods outright instead of earning them through grinding, or speed up crew development.

I've dropped about $50 on the game, mostly as a way of supporting the devs.  I've still got 3K in Gold Lions as I hardly ever touch the stuff.
Title: Re: Share your videos!
Post by: W8taminute on January 26, 2015, 02:12:31 PM
Yes I agree with SDR.  You don't have to spend a dime to play War Thunder.  I've dropped about $12 of real money into the game to buy extra slots for my hanger so that I can train more crews and have more vehicles available to choose for each battle.  You get about 5 or 6 free slots per country to play with but I wanted moar! 

Other than that every plane or tank I've bought have been strictly through free grinding.  There are so many vehicles to play with that you really don't need to purchase the premium vehicles imho.  Not unless you're a collector.   ;)

First and last bits of a M&B Napoleonic Wars Siege match from the weekend.




I had one hilarious death in the middle of it, where my newly perforated corpse fell and bounced down three stories worth of walls before splatting upon a boulder in first-person view, but that didn't record properly.  Nevertheless, I had plenty of fun and bloody bayonets as always.     :))

I just started playing M&B Napoleonic Wars online yesterday.  That's a great game.  Nice footage Nefaro.

While I used to enjoy the 'Battle' matches, they can often take too long in killing off the last of the losing team and you only have one life.  So I've been doing more Siege mode stuff lately (63e server is usually the most popular for it). 

You get respawns but don't get some of the cool meeting engagement style maps and more area for cavalry action, in Siege, so it's a trade-off.  There is another CTF style mode that is a mix of both because it has respawns but I usually don't see as many people playing that one.  It must only run on a timer or something and I recall it being very difficult to defend flags with a lot of people.

There are some great gut-wrenching laughs in the big Napoleonic Wars matches and it's not overly twitchy.   :smitten:

That sounds like the server I was on last night.  There were close to 200 people in a Siege type battle.  We were storming a beach then had to run slightly uphill to get to the enemies fortifications.  The enemy had quite a lot of cavalry men just raking up the beach.  I was a victim of the cavalry sabre quite a few times. 

As for the laughs there sure are some to be had.  I acted like a clown myself when I picked up a fife and started playing music right in front of the opposing teams faces during another battle.  Let's just say that they did not seem like the music loving type.   :D

No sandbox.  Limited number of stages which you can play in any sequence that you can play either Normal or Expert mode (you give the SID and STARS).
There are custom missions out there. 

Take note that this is a Japanese game.  It just happens that the ATC chatter is in English as per real life.  I am also using an English patch / mod for the commands.

Don't really recommend to anyone.  And the price is steep as it is a rare game.

I posted that series because I died so many ways.  Some were pretty funny, even if it was just the screaming and flopping.  I actually cut a bit out where I tried to wade through the water around the fort but ended up killing myself because it was taking too long. 

Wish I hadn't lost the footage of my digital infantryman getting blown from the very top of the hill fort by a cannonball, bouncing off a few walls, roofs, and boulders on the way down in first-person view from my last vid.  ;D  Luckily ShadowPlay lets me save game video from a few minutes prior gameplay although it's still in beta and the recording can be a bit twitchy at times.

In order to win Siege mode as the attacker, you have to get inside a small area containing their flag, inside the fort, before time runs out.  It's usually surrounded by a low circle of sandbags and such. 


Played Siege last night and remembered why I didn't like it.  I can't do anything with my ping levels.  I can fare better in commander mode.


That sucks.  I think the handful of popular servers are in Europe and the US so your pings are definitely gonna be higher than hoped.  I'm slow to join EU servers due to their ping being over 100 for me.  While this game usually has a slow pace, the melee requires some quick reflexes in those small bits of flailing terror and having anything but low latency can cause you to suffer.  :-\

Line battles are pretty fun and a unique one for a first-person shooter.  I tend to prefer Siege because it has respawns and a best of three series, although many of the custom siege maps I've seen on 63e tend to favor the attackers quite a bit.  When it's well populated, I also like to play Battle mode but you only have one life in those so there will usually be some spectating after you're dead.  Not terrible since this game can be so amusing to watch in MP, but you still sit for a bit in between.  Fortunately the battles are more even.



I'm debating an attempt at recording a Naval Action vid and uploading it sometime.  But I may wait until I unlock larger ships.  Would rather do so with Frigates or larger.

Caribbean!  My merchant was relatively successful in making some money trading and attacking smugglers and robbers. But I forgot to repair my flagship and lost it quickly in a battle :(.  Then some corsairs in a war brig chased my lone ship, boarded us, and we lost the battle.  My merchant is now stripped naked with no possessions except for a small row boat.  Looks like a restart is in store as I use the "hardcore" autosave mode.

I've played Age of Pirates City of Abandoned Ships fairly recently so the ship handling and naval views from this game aren't terribly impressive looking.  The seventeenth century costumes are the selling point, I suppose (along with the more realistic map).  But they aren't that authentic looking, and the ship battle/musketry duel didn't feel right, probably because it looked too much like all of the other Mount and Blade engine games.

Does anyone know how to find and activate the 10% coupon you're supposed to get (and I have yet to find) if you already own Mount and Blade Warband or With Fire and Sword (and I own both)?

Still wondering why I broke down and got Viking Conquest less than six months after release:  I've put it away to age for a year while they fix the bugs.  Can this game be any better?

Frozen Cortex
Since the youtube uploading and offline downloading isn't working i resorted to bandicam. The camera's could use some improvement and i'd like to see the ability to upgrade a robots stats categories  individually instead of purchasing new robots with better stats, of course that might unbalanced things a wee bit. there are some niggles that need to be worked out in the game, like your players getting hung up on the blocks, test plays not being accurate and the AI intercepting the ball when they appear to be moving which isn't supposed to be allowed. My biggest gripe would be the camera at this point, but all in all if you liked frozen synapse and you enjoy football there is fun to be had here.

This was an easy win for me, my team just had better players. I'm currently at 4 wins and 4 losses.

You can indeed infuse your weapons with certain stones to give them magic powers like flame or lightning damage.  There are other even cooler weapons with badass attack animations but I chose to stick with the cane and pistol.  It makes my character more of a gentlemanly hunter.   8)

Contradictions. That is definitely what I was going for.  The peaceful music kind of soothes me while I'm on the hunt.   ;D


This second boss is a little bit into the game.  Still sort of early but I'd estimate that fight as the beginning of the second chapter in the story.  He wasn't too hard to kill, the first boss believe it or not was tougher for me.  I died a couple of times before I beat him.  So far from what I've seen if you can master your combos and timing correctly you can beat the early guys pretty easily. 

I'll post some more snippets of my adventures soon.   8)

I thought I had him too but I got greedy and didn't heal when I should have.  Instead I tried to get a couple of jabs in to finish him since he was low on health and I paid the price.  He got me good with that nasty back swing when I was behind him.  Wasn't expecting that.

I thought you guys would think that music was fitting for this fight.  The reason I held off using my gun was I was low on silver bullets.  Later on after I killed the big guy I found some more.  Could have used them in that fight though! 

If you want some more firearm action I've got some potential footage in the making to share now that I found a rifle-spear.  That weapon is sick but I need to level it up a bit before taking it out for a joyride.

lot of stuff in there not simulated in war games - certainly not the ones i play - thats pretty cool, each tank has its own destination, meeting point and target on its way

You sure don't see all that murky dust in any of the FPS games.


That vid is indeed captivating, in a depressing way. In between watching the tactics that the tanks were using I kept getting glimpses of mundane things such as dumpsters and parking signs, reminding me that people used to work in those buildings and that folks went there with their families for a bit of shopping. Also, seeing thing like that decorative brickwork in the lane dividers made me think of the working guys who spent so much time making something ordinary but nice to look at.

Now the whole fucking place is Stalingrad.

Interesting that the commentary is in Russian. Must be "Advisors" that are trying to help the army get it's shit together. That's the only reason I could think of mounting Go-Pros on the tanks... to record how the tactical training is being implemented.

It's probably a combo of analysis and 'infotainment'. Some Russian media and consulting company bribes a few local commanders to mount the GoPros and collect the footage. Then it sells copies to the Russian military and to the media for propaganda ('Hey you, sitting on your couch in your Moscow flat! Look how professional our Syrian allies are! Now, back to tonight's episode of Russia's Got Talent...').

Been tempted by this game all weekend.....I don't own a steering wheel, I know you can use a controller, but is it very practical?  Do you have any shot of winning races when using a controller?

I have no idea GR I'm afraid. I know I wouldn't ever use nor want to use a controller for driving.

I can say, given the physics, that it could be difficult - but I genuinely wouldn't know. You could try SimHQ and ask there where there is a specific forum - see if anyone is racing with a controller.

Thanks, that is what I feared and the reason I largely stay away from driving games...but this one looked pretty good so thought maybe if a chance it was workable, might give it a shot....I'll look around in other places to see if anyone else has comments.

No mate - steering wheel. It was always worth the purchase for me because it's one genre I've always enjoyed on PC.

I couldn't ever imagine using a mouse/keyboard or controller for a racing sim.

Post by: W8taminute on May 15, 2015, 06:01:52 PM
Well after debating with myself all week on whether to buy the game or not I finally made my purchase.  Decided that I'd get it for console once I saw that option was available to me.  I've put in a lot of time in my gaming career on driving games with a controller on console so I figured pCars would be no different.  I'm happy to say I can handle the cars nicely but I've got to get some practice in before I start my career. 

Here is the intro race you start the game with to get your racing feet wet.

I'm going to be completely honest with you here W8taminute - that is probably the worst driving I've seen anyone posting - EVER.  :2funny:

Even given those gripes, the game is superb.

I'd thought you'd get a kick out of my nasty driving there Judge after I saw how nicely you drive.   ;D
But yes I'm sure that if I had a wheel and pedal combo I'd drive much better.  After I practice a bit my driving usually improves enough to where I can start making decent progression in my in game career. 

My biggest problem in all of these driving games is spatial awareness at the corners.  In real life I can judge the position of my car to that of the corner I'm about to take and approach the turn properly.  In a video game for some reason I just can't get it right, even after a lot of practice.  My problem is that I cannot actually feel how fast the vehicle is going in a video game compared to the sensations you feel whilst driving a real car.  I'm referring to the way the vibrations of the road transfer through the floor of the car, the pedals, and your seat.  You don't have that in a video game. 

Quote
What track was that?

Dubai International.  I've raced it plenty of time in F1 2012 and even there I could never master that one sharp corner.   :)

Quote
What software did you use to record the laps?

It's called ShareFactory and it's an app you can download for the PS4.  The PS4 has a built in capture program and ShareFactory takes that raw video and allows you to dress it up a bit. 


Interesting you mention damage, or lack thereof.  I set most of my settings to novice with the exception of transmission and damage.  I've got damage set to full real where as the car takes damage it's performance is supposed to severely degrade.  Didn't notice that in that race I shared nor the two others I played afterwards.  Hmm....I seem to recall F1 2012 doing a decent job with damage. 

I'll probably post some more videos of my bad driving.  Hopefully we'll see an improvement.   :2funny:

Practice makes perfect mate. As I said - I couldn't drive with a controller. No way no how. So kudos just for that.

I've actually found a program which seems to do a decent job of recording. I had downloaded a trial version of Action! but when I started to record, I noticed considerable lag - in game and the video.

I've downloaded a trial version of D3DGear and will likely buy it. It seems to have everything I need AND there is absolutely zero slow down in my trials with it.
Title: Re: Share your videos!
Post by: W8taminute on May 16, 2015, 07:35:29 AM
^D3DGear looks like a nice program.  At first glance there seems to be a lot of positive online talk about the software.  Thanks for the tip JD.

The price seems good to when compared too other software out there. 


And yes thanks for the kudos.  Practicing is what I plan on doing this weekend!   :)

A couple at Nurburgring in my fav - RUF GT3

This is normal replay


And this is the same lap in helmet cam view (I love it). The "cockpit" cam seems to go blurry and it seems to be in relation to the G's being pulled - I'm not sure if that's all cockpit views or just the helmet cam (which I almost exclusively race in). All very immersive for me.

Title: Re: Share your videos!
Post by: JudgeDredd on May 16, 2015, 01:44:29 PM
Apart from all the solo racing I do, I started a career and also started at the bottom. I have to say, I'm not keen on the model. I've started on karts like you and when you select a day to race, you are plumped right on the starting grid with no option to practice

Karts aren't my fav...but I'm hoping I'm not in them too long. And I do hope the no practice/qualy thing is limited to the Karts and not throughout the career
Title: Re: Share your videos!
Post by: W8taminute on May 16, 2015, 05:47:11 PM
That thought did cross my mind as well.  I seem to recall in the intro videos of the game before you race your first practice race a mention about qualifying times in weekend events.  I don't mind that missing from Kart racing but it better be part of the lower tier races. I miss that feature from the F1 series of games.   O0

Looks like D3D is working out nice for you.  Those are some great videos.  Yes Dubai was my nemesis but I'll starting to feel how to race on this track better now that I practiced some. 

I think I noticed that you did some double clutching there? Maybe rev matching?  Is that true?  If so then it seems like race pedals and shift kit are definitely a must for this game.  That kind of behavior is very difficult to duplicate on a game controller, hence why I kept manual clutch disabled.  The way the controller layout is there is no way to get your hands and fingers situated to brake, shift, clutch, shift again, then gas and go.
Title: Re: Share your videos!
Post by: JudgeDredd on May 18, 2015, 11:16:08 PM
Thanks.

D3DGear seems to be the tool for me. It's very easy to setup and very easy to use. The videos seem half decent too.

God - no - I wasn't double clutching. I have never used manual clutch...one of the few assistance things I always leave on.

Here is an example of co-op play.  I offer my services to assist another online gamer in his fight against Rom the Vacuous Spider, 8th boss of the game.  Rom guards Byrgenwyrth, an old school founded by an old scholar who wanted to seek the nature of the beast and use them for healing people.  It turned out that instead the findings were used for evil.  Surprise surprise!  Before we head to battle look at how my host prayed before the fight to whatever god he believes in.  Afterwards when the fight is over we high five each other!

Yes but it took me two tries to beat it.  In the first attempt I did not fully eliminate all of the little spiders and they were the ones that killed me while I was hitting the big boss.  The second time through though I concentrated on mopping up all of the little spiders before hitting the big boss so that I would not be interrupted.  It was still a tough fight solo though.

F1 2015 is a real good looking racing sim from what I see here.  I like the new HUD layout as it seems much easier to keep track of your speed and gear selection than 2013 which is what I have.

It looks amazing. It seems more alive too. The pit crew etc. I am able to do Time Trial with no issues at all. Ultra settings and smooth as silk. But in Championship Mode or Quick Race, I can put the settings down to Ultra Low (a real setting in game) and it makes absolutely no difference to the frame rate. Not one iota.

Great looking though. It really is. It also sounds cool and the car is twitchy with the power. From what I tried in Time Trial, I liked what I saw.

I have downloaded a new set of AMD drivers for my 7900 card (can't remember the exact model). So I'll give them a pop - see if there's any difference...that is normally the case - however, it could just be rooted in the code.

I'll keep ya posted.

I was going to say you did an excellent job in the rain on the first race but something went wrong on that one turn there.  What happened in Mexico?  Were your tire settings incorrect or did you indeed have insufficient downforce from your front air dam?

Ok, I've got to go fire up some pcars now just to satiate my racing desire!

I just don't know Mexico - that was literally my second lap EVER. Plus the AI smacked me in the arse.

I'm going to post a video of the menus in the garage, an out lap, 3 or 4 laps and an in lap and back in the garage - all at Spa.

Don't ask me what Valterri Bottas was doing when he came out the pits (you'll see)

Oh - and I've had a few beers  ;D Drink driving is ok when it's virtual  :buck2:

Title: Re: Share your videos!
Post by: JudgeDredd on July 11, 2015, 05:01:10 AM
So - some laps of Spa. I'm still trying to get a feel for the car and the steering...the feedback isn't great but I'm tweaking so I should get there soon.

This shows when you sit in the garage and ask your engineer for the "pad" to make your tyre choices and edit your setup. You can also zoom on the screen in front and it shows you the track, cars positions and, a nice touch, the weather in the next xx minutes. That has been sorely needed for some time and makes a welcome entrance. You can also see the lap times and go to the TV console to view other cars on track.

Then there's some laps and watch at 9:30 in when Bottas shows what the AI is currently like. I'm all for the AI making errors...but I'd like to see that at corners and perhaps overtaking...not just anywhere...and I've seen what happens to him a fair bit. So the AI needs work.

The game is very pleasing though. The "atmospherics" are on the money imo. I've yet to do a championship race so I don't know what the "driver experience" is like...hopefully it's all there.

Anyway - enjoy

Title: Re: Share your videos!
Post by: W8taminute on July 11, 2015, 08:12:08 AM
There is no reason why Bottas should have slammed his car into the side like that on a perfectly straight piece of track with no one else other than you around.  It's a  minor issue that should be easy to patch.

Where during the recording does the game crash?  Interesting that not until you bought the video capture software that it causes the crashing to occur.  I'm assuming you ran the demo version of D3DGear to record your videos so far.
Title: Re: Share your videos!
Post by: JudgeDredd on July 11, 2015, 09:25:00 AM
I had downloaded the demo of D3DGear ages ago and the 30 day trial was over. I was debating whether to get it or not for ages...and because of the lag issue, I decided to buy it yesterday.

The crashing is weird. All the videos I've done have been using the bought version of D3DGear. Up until this morning it was fine - however I was trying something different this morning...I was trying to capture the start of a Championship to show the "intro" to your career...and every single time I started to record it crashed.

However, I have changed the codec being used by D3DGear and it didn't crash earlier, so I'll see if that's sorted it out or whether it's still hit and miss.

All your posting on these racing games is finally going to make me get a wheel to use and try some of these...they seem like fun, but without a wheel I haven't jumped it...I'll have to find a good cheap one from somewhere, don't need anything fancy.

You will not understand why you held off for so long on a wheel once you have one. It totally transforms a racing game. pCars and F1, Assetto Corsa - all superb games and they are not being done any justice by using a controller - and more than that - you're just not getting the greatness from those games.

It's an initial outlay - I think my wheel was about £80 - but I've had untold amounts of fun with games that need a wheel - so on a GBP per hours of fun calculation - the cost is totally and completely insignificant.

Of course the initial outlay isn't - I understand that...but once it's in your house - and if you like racing games - then you will definitely get your money's worth

Title: Re: Share your videos!
Post by: JudgeDredd on July 12, 2015, 02:40:20 AM
Project Cars

imo it's the whole package at the moment. Great graphics, great ion track feel, AI isn't too shabby, sounds are great.

Assetto Corsa would be a very, very close second. Handling and feedback is better - but as a package, it's a bit short. And the feeling of driving in pCars isn't bad anyway - it's just that AC feels more real

But for overall enjoyment and fun - pCars...hands down.

Be aware though - there are plenty that would disagree. I think it probably depends on how hardcore you are and whilst I play a lot of racing games - I'm not really hardcore. I don't know what dampers affect or when I should stiffen the springs. I play them for fun...and pCars wins there imo.

oh - and from what I gather it's "playable" with a controller...so if you can't get a wheel right away, it's not that bad (I think W8aminute is using one - so he might be able to advise better)

But remember - if you get pCars and play it with a controller and don't like it - bear in mind that could be because you're not getting everything out of it without a wheel.

Just saying.

I have to agree with JD on not getting everything out of the game with a controller.  I've been playing racing games for years with just a controller and it has taken me that long to be the mediocre driver that I am today.  As long as the track is straight and the curves not so tight a controller is ok for driving these games.  You'll really notice how hard it is to handle the car through a hairpin turn and you'll have to apply the brakes a lot earlier than you would need if you were using a wheel.  For that reason alone I want to get a wheel as soon as my budget permits.

So on my breaks from learning WITE i'm venturing back to some old school FPS. My love of FPS games goes back to the wolfenstein shareware disk i got in a magazine. So i picked up Quake2 and Doom 2 recently. They both play great, pure FPS. I remember literally playing hundreds upon hundreds of DOOM/DOOM2 levels. Doom 1 was good but Doom 2 was better and quake 2 is probably the best quake mainly because it had better level design. Quake i'm playing using the KMquake exe. with a texture pack and Doom2 i'm using GZdoom + brutal doom and i'm playing the modern track instead of the classic mode which means some modern weapons. The render didn't turn out terribly well, playing isn't as dark as the video's appear. If you play FPS games i'd recommend these for sure. You can find a doom wad for free pretty easy, i bought mine on steam for $1.60 and added the mods..brutal doom is awesome. these are the first levels from both games.

Just some game play from "The Great War" mod for Napoleon Total War.  Here you see me playing as the Austro-Hungarians and my campaign has progressed to early February 1917.  We've stabilized the Russian front with neither side able to overpower the other. 

Over in the west I'm engaged with the Italians and have taken Venice and Northern Italy from them.  I'm trying to assemble a strong enough force to knock Italy out.  Even getting ready for my first naval engagement against the Reggia Marina.  No battles in this video but I plan on showing off combat in my next video.   ;)

Here is a massive 5600 man vs. roughly 5400 man battle.  I've begun my offensive into the rest of northern Italy in an attempt to crush their main army stationed there.  This will be a tough 32 minute battle that almost looked bad towards the end.  I brought two mortar batteries as well as one 100 mm howitzer battery.  The Italians had a bunch of machine gun bunkers that held me up for a bit but I managed to finally get rid of them. 

Watch what happens as the Italian reinforcements arrive on my right flank.  They almost turned me.  It was very tense.  Enjoy!

Nothing much here - just basic movement and showing graphics etc. I had already finished the mission before I remembered I had bought game recording software.

You can see what I was on about with sneaking about and him slamming doors open "like John Wayne in a saloon"...though I don't think the noise attracts the guards. Also I was being a bit distracted here with my daughter hence a pause or two and the running around on the horse. And note also, I had already cleared everyone out of the town - so I was running about because I knew it was clear.

I'll make a better one showing a mission later tonight or tomorrow.

Game: Heroes and Generals (free to play)
Type:  Tactical FPS with some RPG gameplay elements

I'm really loving this game.  I have 3 soldiers, one in the US Army, one in the German Army, and my Soviet soldier featured in this video.  He's by far my most leveled up character and I just got him a PPD-40 SMG.  The PPD is the predecessor to the PPSH SMG.  We battled fiercely for control point C, a small two story farmhouse surrounded by a partial stonewall with some wooden fenced areas.  I manage to hitch a ride with a halftrack and man the MG. 

The fighting near the house became frantic.  Pay attention to the bodies flying up into the air as grenade blasts and vehicles run over both friend and foe.  There is even some halftrack vs. halftrack point blank chases. 

For some reason when I'm in third person view, usually when riding a vehicle, the video quality is not so great.  When I return on foot the video quality is ok.  I'm trying to figure out what settings work with this game for my video capture software.
Enjoy.

And you probably will.

The great thing about DCS is it's free with the Su-25T which is a great CAS aircraft. Bot a "study sim" module as I've just learned, but a great wee aircraft to fly.

But you will likely want to buy others and move on!

Don't be wary.  I think all of us here are mature enough to decide on watching a vid and risking spoilers or not.  I like how you kept the videos short.  Just highlighting some observations you made without giving anything away as far as story or locales.

LOL....Hof, your commentary, especially when you get frustrated, is more interesting than the video visuals....! I've tried a few tank sims over the years but find them disappointing because I can never see much of anything. Enemies are usually little dots off in the distance that can see and kill me with ease but I can't figure out how to do the same to them. Perhaps this is realistic but it doesn't make for a good gaming experience (IMHO).

Bought, installed and modded Red Thunder. I played a lot of the first 3 so getting up to speed shouldnt be too bad. So i'm playing my first battle. Defending against a Russian attack, armor and infantry. I have a total of 5 AT assets, 3 stug's and 2 panzerfausts. I'm down 2 AT assets when this video is shot, 1 stug and 1 panzerfaust. I have nothing to stop tanks on my right where it seems the main blow is coming. It takes a few turns but i get my remaining panzerfaust in position on my right. My stug is knocked out but the T34 puts another round in it for good measure...bastards....EAT THIS.

Good one budd...thanks for posting.  I loved this game but since upgrading (or was it downgrading?) to Windows 10 I get nothing but the dreaded black screen. These is a thread in their forums (which I started) but the issue has never been resolved. Not everyone using Windows 10 has the issue.

Heh.  That piece of shit is actually faster than it looks.  But yes, trade it in for a Merc.  I wouldn't drive anything else! ;)

You know there's cruise control, right?

No I had no idea that there is cruise control.  I'll have to look into the keyboard controls for this and assign the button(s) to my controller.  Thanks for the heads up!  And yes that MAZ can really move fast when there is no trailer attached to it.

Post by: Huw the Poo on February 21, 2016, 05:38:06 PM
The default key for cruise control is C.  I believe it doesn't work below a certain speed...for me it seems to be 20mph.  And obviously it will deactivate when you accelerate or decelerate.

In other news, I just spent the last two hours learning how to use three different programs in order to make my own videos with commentary.  Hooray!  Videos are incoming! \o/

No idea, I've deleted it now!  It was about 18 minutes.  I'll keep tinkering to find a way to reduce the file size.

Thanks W8!  Yeah, if you hold the right mouse button down time instantly freezes and the menu is called up.  You can then interact with your cockpit (rotate the map, select a weapon etc), select targets, use the menus, etc.  It is single player, yeah.

Sorry, I get confused sometimes. Ok, most times.

Uh...who? :D  I'm going to guess that whoever she is, she definitely does miss you Staggerwing.  She's probably sobbing over you right now and posting that lovely holiday picture on Twitter for the hundredth time!

That was pretty good, IronX!

I was starting to wonder (not your fault of course) whether the troops on that lead tank going across the bridge thought tanks granted them Protection From Bullets 30' Radius, as the tracers zipped around them -- then suddenly there's a bunch of dead Sovs on the end of the bridge, and none on the tank!

A grim tragedy in real life, but I lol'd hard.  :uglystupid2: :idiot2:

It's a good scenario. I made my way methodically up to the village and then when the attack bogged down I thought, damn it, time for full-on-Soviet-assault and rushed my remaining tanks with their passengers towards the objective bridgehead. It kind of paid off. I took the bridge, but in the end it was a draw as I'd taken a lot of casualties in the process.  :(

I heard tell they garnered super strength through "the virus"

But in all honesty, it's one of those things that's making big news and doesn't really matter - it isn't, after all, the only shooter out there that requires lots of hits to put someone down.

I thought it would bother me when I saw videos of the game - and in playing the BETA, I discovered it actually didn't bother me.

Thanks. Normally I leave the tank at the crossroads, but I've had some success being more aggressive and driving down the road, guns a-blazing, not unlike Wittmann. As often happens in this game, the unbuttoned TC caught a bullet early on, but the crew didn't flinch and pushed on. Couldn't see where the final fatal shots came from, but am guessing it was probably a 76.

I did this quickie video after CMRT was released, so those on the fence might see what was included on the disc:



Thinking I might do one for CM:FB. The maps as viewed in the editor can be real works of art unto themselves. Mostly I always thought it a shame that the scenario designers for the CM titles get short shrift - the community rushes to add their own scenarios and the release disc offerings kind of get overlooked - not to mention that since they don't get submitted to the third party depositories, public feedback - where anyone bothers to provide it - is scattered throughout different forums.

Enjoyed your vid Hof....I've tried a handful of these 'realistic' fps games and always get frustrated at my inability to see the enemy. Even in this video I hear you say 'I see them' and you start shooting. I'm watching and saying to myself....'what the hell is it he sees that I don't'. Maybe I need new glasses!

It's fleshed out quite nicely. I'd say, in terms of driving, it's not far off Richard Burns Rally but it's a pretty good game now. I definitely enjoy the Rally X stuff.

That would be me.  ;)

Thank you for making the scenario! Scenario designers don't get nearly enough credit for their efforts.

Here' my latest vid covering the third mission in the German campaign for Gustav Line:

Title: Re: Share your videos!
Post by: panzerde on July 12, 2016, 02:14:25 PM
As I watched it, I was thinking to myself "this is as good as those vids IronX has shared on Grogheads! ;D


I should have know it was someone from here. Where else would I find someone who is grog enough not just to play the scenario, but make such an impressive video of it?


I'm not joking that this inspired me. I'm going to start working on another scenario.

Title: Re: Share your videos!
Post by: IronX on July 12, 2016, 04:34:51 PM
Looking forward to it!

How long does it take to put one together? It looks like a lot of work, including research, building the map, putting together the OOB and AI plans, etc.

I probably had about 40 hours or so in Panzer Marsch! Some of the was just getting familiar with the editor, since that was the first CM scenario I'd ever built. There's a fair amount I'd do differently in my next one that would probably save time.


Research on this scenario was kind of a bear. I really wanted to do a map of the actual terrain, but after hours of searching maps, I just could not find a location that matched up to the written account. Worse, it appears that the action was minor enough that there just isn't any other documentation that I could find online describing it, or providing an actual name for Village Z. There was an action later in the day that was fairly significant, and that gave me a rough idea of where things happened, but no more so than the general description in the written account I had.


So, I ended up picking a plausible location in Poland and modeling the map after that. I spent a long time looking at Google Maps and StreetView to come up with a map that looked close...and then had to tweak a lot to make it playable.


The OOB for the Germans wasn't too difficult since it's generally laid out in the written account. The Soviet OOB was much more speculative. The original iteration of the scenario actually had the remainder of the German KG as specified in the written account showing up - which made for a BUNCH of Panthers on the map. That made it really impractical to play, and some people I had try it (who didn't bother to read the actual history) accused me of just creating a fanboi Panther scenario. I actually had someone tell me that the entire Heer couldn't muster the number of Panthers I had in the game in August 1944! I'm sure the Americans in Lorraine and a few months later at the Bulge would have been happy to know that the Germans couldn't muster an entire Panther battalion in the latter half of 1944.


Adjusting the German OOB to just reflect a Panther company with the support of a platoon of Panzergrenadiers made for a better fit for the map. Unfortunately that also required a significant change in the Soviet OOB, including removing a platoon of T-34/85s that enter Village Z along the road from the top of the map once the Germans enter the village.


One of the more interesting things to do was to set up the various scripted movement paths and triggers for the Soviets. I wanted the T-34/85s to act similarly to what was described for the action, which is why they start pulling back as soon as they sight the Panthers. Getting all of that set up took some doing.


Perhaps the most gratifying thing about watching your video was seeing you execute an attack that mirrored almost exactly the path that I envisioned for the German player when creating the scenario. The placement of units and various scripted triggers seem to have prompted the actions I expected an experienced player to take.

Although hard core players might laugh, I actually turn down the ai settings in the options and then I see less of this.  The ai is still tough for me since not that great myself.  There is no doubt probably realistic during war (assuming ai is not unrealistically seeing things) but during war my soldier would likely be more capable than what I am able to make happen within the game myself:). So reducing the ai seems to balance it for me.

Yeah.  It also depends on the map.  It's less of a problem for more drier maps like Altis / Stratis and Takistan.

I think that is why I kinda enjoyed the bit of H&G I played after it's release.

Really reminded me of some old FPS multi-player games.  Back when you only needed a few hot keys and everything wasn't crammed into cramped alleys and buildings for CQB-time-all-the-time.   

Positive vibes.  My general aversion to WW2 shooters & wargames is what made me stray away, not any lack of enjoyment for the gameplay itself.

Good on you, then. I think I gave up in frustration - I never was able to win as the Germans.

I did manage to win Drive On Moscow as the Germans, more than once, which made me wonder if both games were unbalanced. I know, the Germans had very little chance of winning in the Battle of the Bulge, but from a gaming perspective, there's always a chance.

SPOILER ALERT.....RE7 1st hour demo..... I played with maxed settings, there was some FPS drops but it didnt become unplayable. FPS ranged from 73 to 15, it only dropped to 15 for a few seconds but the frame rate was  bit up and down mostly averaging in the 40's i'd say. The sound is well done, i recommend headphones to check out the audio atmosphere.

The video is from multiplayer where you can pick your chapter. I've only played the first chapter of SP. Your given the story during briefings where you get your mission, havent seen any cut scenes yet but I've only played the first chapter in SP.If your going solo in Multiplayer you pretty much have to be the medic guy for the healing powers. I've yet to make it through a chapter solo, got close in the first chapter but that onslaught at the end seems impossible on your own.

^Absolutely gorgeous game JH.  Thanks for sharing.  I'm gonna have to consider getting into this game.  I played it for free a few months ago during one of those weekend deals and liked it but was a little skeptical.  It seems now they've really developed it out and I'm more interested now than before.

I've got a short video of my own to share.  This is going to be a multi video series depicting my first battle with my newly acquired M3 Lee tank as the Americans.  Hope you like.

You can use the 37mm gun but it means switching out of the driver/75mm gunner seat if you're alone.  If you have a team mate on board with you they operate the 37mm and you operate the driving and the 75mm gun. 

Here's part two!

I was never particularly good at single engine fighters, preferring bombers instead, and have really grown fond of the 110.  The G2 model that comes with Kuban is even better than the E2 from Moscow. If you get either game, lemme know as we can do with more zerstorer pilots!

Yeah Sir Slash it's tough running the tank alone but it's still fun once you figure out the ins and outs.  I love Heroes and Generals despite the grind and it's other quirks.  Nothing is more rewarding than finally saving up enough in-game currency to get that new vehicle you've been eyeing or a new mod for your rifle.  I feel comfortable with H&G's grind than the mainstream shooters because of the way you get rewarded vs. other games.

There's no commentary so it might be quite boring...just 8 laps of the race. The car I'm following isn't mine...I was in the lead and stayed there (I set the AI too low)...so I followed a different car that was in the pack.

Haven't posted a video in a while.  I found one that I intended to share but never got around to do so, until now.  So this is one of my Russians in Heroes & Generals.  He's armed with the AVS automatic rifle.  The 15 round clip leaves a lot to be desired but this weapon is potent.  Here I am holding off several determined German paratrooper waves from one of our capture points.

I put together another cinematic CM video, this time featuring the Americans. The mission is taken from the second mission in the Road to Montebourg campaign. I tried to be a bit more concise with this video, and the result is to my liking. It's about half as long as the previous.

Those are some well done videos CptMiller. And "Road to Monteborg" was my favorite campaign for CMBN-- and probably the only one I won too.

Apologies, I didn't see your compliment until now due to some account issues after having to rebuild my desktop. A belated thanks to you for your feedback! Of the campaigns I have played for CMBN, "Road to Montebourg" is certainly my favorite. It has a good mix of battles featuring various units on battlefields appropriately sized for the fighting in Normandy. I'm hoping to make a few more video's, some of which will likely feature more scenarios from this campaign. Once Shock Force 2 comes out at the end of this month I'm planning on shifting focus to that for the foreseeable future.

^I understand what you mean. 

Just to give another example at one point three jeeps drove up to the 'battle' in column formation.  All three jeeps had .30 cals mounted on them and the guys that were manning them simply stood behind them in a casual manner and fired them almost as an after thought.  But hey, it's not often you get to see a WW2 reenactment so I'll take what I can get.   ;D

Picked up Killing Floor 2 during the sale. I have Killing Floor 1, but loaded it up a few weeks ago and i just can't get it to run. Killing Floor always gives me trouble, the confined maps and the geometry of the maps. I'm always getting caught on something or trapped in a corner and my reload control is crapping. I'm trying out the classes and load outs, there's workshop support and a ton of maps available. Here's a Christmas themed map, you should recognize the narrator's voice. I didn't get to finish the waves, my daughter had a non-emergency, emergency, you know, spider in the house :)

Wave 1


Wave 2

Some more Killing Floor 2, Halloween themed.

Found my favorite class and weapon, Favorite class- Gunslinger, all pistols, Favorite Weapon- Dual fisted Desert Eagles- 50 cal baby, i usually like shotguns, but the shotgun is underwhelming is this game. I can't afford the Desert Eagles until wave 3 or 4 so that's a bummer. Think i've got the hang of it, going to bump the difficulty up to hard and see what that's about.

Spoiler: there is no river in this scenario. And water can't be crossed over anyway. And while I suppose there may be some sprinting technically, it sure isn't going to feel that way!

Burning Paris Map- Swat- Suicidal difficulty

I usually wait until my character is level 20 before switching to suicidal difficulty, WTH i gave it shot. Suicidal increases enemy hit points, damage, speed, and number/types of enemies. It also gives you less ammo and points to spend at the trader between levels. I made through the stages but got killed by the boss right after this level.

Made it through the 4 stages, but the boss killed me after that. You can set the waves to 4, 7, 10, or endless. The Boss level is after the wave stages. knowing the maps is important, especially on the harder levels. There are only a couple maps i know real well, that Paris map is one of the ones i know well. I've got about 20+ workshop maps installed,some good, and some suck, been going though them to check them out. There's only one difficulty higher than suicidal, hell on earth, not sure my reflexes will ever be up to that difficulty level. There's some enemies you will only see on suicidal or higher levels of difficulty.  Think i'm going to see how long i can survive on endless.

Brutal Doom released a new version end of May, thought i'd give it a spin. I'm using a HD texture pack and a different HUD mod. This is a little different map than the usual frantic doom 2 stuff. Map has more atmosphere and a slower pace, it s a remake of a Doom3 map- E1M1. I played Doom 3, didn't really like it, never finished it, but i like the map play with brutal doom. Also using the newest version of GZDoom, it's amazing what there squeezing out graphically out of the Doom engine.

Booted up recently purchased Dusk, and so far it's great. If your into retro FPS games its a keeper and i'm only through 2 levels. Fast, fluid controls, solid mechanics, and the sound track is the top notch, the sound track was the first thing that stuck out. Andrew Hulshult is the shit when it comes to soundtracks for these types of games. The game even had a pixel setting in the video options if you want to go real ol school look, i turned the pixel setting to 0 for my play through. I see some homage to Doom, Quake and the build engine games in Dusk, so far so good.
 The first two levels weren't to difficult and i didn't secret hunt much, i get the feeling the game is easing me into the pain slowly.
Here's the first two levels

I'm aware of Devils Daggers, looks a bit limited. Correct me if i'm wrong, arena based endless wave game, looks like only one arena type also. Still it will probably drop to 99 cents sometime, and i'll pick it up. Dusk has an endless mode in the game.

 There are a lot of FPS games on the horizon or in EA, my wish list is overflowing: Serious Sam 4, Space Beast Terror Fright, Ion Maiden[although Iron Maiden is suing them], Hellbound[ funny trailer], Maximum Action[some Max Paine slo-mo shit here], Project Warlock, Wrath: Aeon of Ruin, and Prodeus. Some Decent type FPS already released, Mother Gunship, SubLevel Zero: Redux, Overload. I always had trouble with those 6 degree movement games, i would frickin always end up upside down and doomed L:-)

Switched over to Amid Evil to give that a spin. Pretty much an opposite to Dusk in color palette, Amid Evil is colorful, and instead of ammo you have different colored mana pools as ammo for your weapons. once you harvest enough souls from your kills you can put your weapons in overdrive for a short time to really blast away.  I went thru 4 levels of the first episode, and the level design is good, controls are tight, and the weapons are interesting. Amid Evil's levels are more wide open with room to maneuver, and there more vertical level designs. Here's the first level.

Still in an ol' school FPS mood. Playing a nice 32 level mega wad called Return to Saturn episode 1 using Brutal Doom. One of the more excellent community wads, no jumping or crouching in this wad, just blasting.....you do have to reload though.

If anyone enjoys some old school FPS action now's a good time to jump in with the Steam sale. All you need is a copy of Doom 1 or Doom 2, i'd recommend Doom 2. Currently Doom 2 is $2.50, the rest of the stuff needed to enjoy literally hundreds of wads is all free. I'm just using some HD textures mods for this play through, the UI and music is stock for this wad, of course i can add mods to change the music or UI really easy through the mod manager.

Return to Saturn episode 1, map 2

Came across this wad for some doom game play. Wow.....this might be the best looking map i've seen. There's a few interesting things, the moving parts on the doors and the vehicles, 3D objects in doom, never seen that before. Usually maps that look this good drop your FPS to an unplayable level, so far this played smooth. I usually do a play through before i record, but did this one cold, so i get a little lost...as usual :coolsmiley: . It's not the most difficult wad, but man it looks good. It's a little long of a video as i didn't know it was on huge level, so i cut it off and may record the rest. Curious to see how much of that city is accessible. The thumbnail is where i left it, don't know if anyone would be interested in seeing the rest of this map.

played using Doom2 with Brutal doom v21, GZDoom latest version, HUD mod, and a music wad. No added texture mods for the level.

I finished the map, took an hour so I'll spilt it into 2 parts. It certainly ended with a bang.

You won't find anything on Steam. All the maps i show are free, made by modders. All you need is a copy of Doom 2 and the rest is free. Literally hundreds and hundreds of levels and level packs, a lot of other mods to mix in, sound, textures, weapons, hud mods.

The basic setup is Doom 2 , a source port, I use GZdoom, and a map pack or level, along with Brutal Doom. I add in a hud mod, sound mod and sometimes a HD texture pack if the level is older. GZDoom, Brutal Doom, and all the level packs are free. The only thing to install on your computer is Doom 2 , the rest don't get installed.

I did not know that.  Sounds like a great deal of free content is awaiting.

I'm thinking the deal on GOG is better since you get more doom.

I don't know...they look kind of relaxing to play, but my guess is you need a wheel setup to do it right. Is there a meta game, so to speak with these simulators, get job, make money hauling, repair costs, late penalties,  so on and so on.

Yeah you run a business which you gradually build up.  You begin by leasing a truck and doing jobs for other companies, then pretty soon you buy your own truck and take contracts.  Before you know it you've hired drivers, bought them trucks, and eventually more garages and more drivers.  There's no real end game, but it's fun to watch your empire grow.  Oh and yeah, plenty of opportunities to accrue fines!

I get on fine with mouse and keyboard but I can imagine it's more enjoyable with a wheel.

I can't overstate how relaxing these games are to play, it's quite something.  Driving along a pleasant, winding road watching the sun set and listening to good music is the best!

Exactly what Huw said about the meta game.   :bd:

It is a lot of fun driving on the road and making deliveries.  Believe it or not I enjoy the game without listening to the radio.  There is something about the hum of the truck engine and the retarder when you hit the brakes that I find very soothing.

Still messing around with Doom mods. Loaded up the most recent version of Project Brutality 3.0, not due for full release until later this year. There's some notable differences between Project Brutality and Brutal Doom, there are things i like about both. Project Brutality has 3-4 variations of the Doom monsters, more weapons, double jump, and ledge climbing, you can turn these options off/on in the options. I'd say Project Brutality has more options to configure to your liking. I'm using Project Brutality to play a Brutal Doom campaign, Extermination Day, i wasn't sure it would work as there was a falling out between the dev's of these mods. i also got my favorite HUD mod to work with both Brutal Doom and Project Brutality. It's a visor mod, with a bunch of configurable options.

This is Extermination Day Map 3. If i remember right there are 32 levels to Extermination Day.

Looks like Alpha 18 will be released on Monday for 7 Days to Die. I'll have to play some vanilla until the mods catch up. This is my base in the War of the Walkers mod, time to say goodbye to it. Got through 46 days, game stage 430, player level 184, 3000+ kills to 7 deaths. Finished all but one master quest, that's when you get the vending machines, when you finish the master quests. A lot of my perks are maxed out. I created my own map in the map maker that's available, most of the map is city. I took over a small prison for the base and upgraded it. Bottom two levels of wall is forged steel, added shooting platforms all the way around, also auto shotgun turrets all the way around.All the stuff up top is mostly from the mod, different work benches, cooking stations and stuff. Have a huge garden, so food's not an issue. It's been a fun run but time to move on to alpha 18.

With the lights out with headphones and the effects turned up a little bit its quite the experience. That was a 6 datacore run, when you have a 20+ datacore run, man the tension just mounts as you go.

Thinking about it, there is very little recoil, never payed attention to it.

Not yet, i'm betting its pretty good in co-op.

Anyone unfamiliar with the game, who watches the video -- pay close attention to how the game messes with your visuals. It's very subtle, but a genius design, mimicking how stress affects our visuals in real life.

Another update released for SBTF, just texture updates, new gun skins and more wall ground textures. looks better and better. The most datacores i've ever cleared is an 8 core run. i've started playing with higher datacore runs, the thought being more datacores, more upgrades i'll get to help the run. Didn't help here, but its a tense run none the less. one thing i forgot to mention, around the 7 minutes mark you'll some cries, those are the scientists in their safe rooms. You can rescue them, you open the safe room and they follow you. I generally don't try to save them until im on my way back to my ship after shutting down the reactor, they get in the way.

some more SBTF, upped the difficulty a bit, turned the face huggers back on and increased the datacore limit. This is my attempt at a 27 datacore run, also switched up my weapons, going with a machine gun and something called a razor 4x, there's a 2X version also but i like the 4X better. There are 5 weapon choices, you get to carry two during a run. Did i make it....hmmmmm...mayyyyyyyyybbbbbeeee.

SBTF release a update that allows level creation and sharing in game. My first attempt at making a mission, this is a test run. There are two versions one named Pressure-solo, which is depicted here, and Pressure-hard. I've survived neither one ;), got close on the solo version. The hard i think lives up to the pressure name, you might not live long but hopefully it's a frantic experience. I'm almost done with another mission and will start a third after the dev shared some insight on how things are generated in game.

To play it you just go to the user missions on the main menu and scroll down by title. Any feedback is appreciated.

Seems like a good game.  Kind of reminds me of a cross between Doom and Half Life.

It is a good game. It doesn't try to do a million different things, it accomplishes what it sets out to do. This game really gives me the alien movie feel, more than the actual "alien" movie games, the tension builds up the closer you get to finishing a mission. Sometimes i find myself getting more cautious closer to the end, "only two to go to finish, stay frosty"  :bd: After you fail a mission a few times, its gets kind of strategic as you plot your approach to the mission when you become more familiar with the layout visually. you get the level map setup before you even start, but i don't look and like to go in cold on the first run. With some low lighting and headphones the game is quite an atmospheric experience.

The hard version of this mission is crazy, with the increased spawn rate and numbers. These hard types always make you feel like the underdog so there is some satisfaction in being able to finish them.

I definitely got that atmospheric impression from your video.  Your view is even limited to the opening of your helmet visor and the radar map near where your chin would be is cool.

SBTF- My second mission design, Wide Open Death. Put about 6 hours into making this, pretty happy with the way it turned out. Everything was going fine until i lost my night vision, pretty tense test run.

Title: Re: Share your videos!
Post by: -budd- on April 16, 2020, 04:26:55 PM
Finished another mission design, called "Follow the Crumbs" . The idea here is to always have another datacore in sight, hence follow the crumbs and also why there is 78 datacores :o . I've run through it quite a few times, that is not to mean i survived and finished it....nope...closest i got was just under 20 datacores left. There some things i wanted to try out layout wise. If you notice there are no doors on the map, just fences, so the alien scum can wander farther. There are fences to immediately wall off breaches and fences that wall off areas. The mission should keep you on your toes, and if you survive long enough you'll get to try out most of the upgrades. There so many breaches i set the infestation to "less" but the difficulty to hard, which means less aliens on the whole but less time to the breaches and faster spawns. i pushed the power outages to the lesser setting but there are so many things to activate 1/32 will turn out a few outages. Placement of the breakers and SG's was the hardest, along with the ammo reloads. I just published it on the user mission list in game. Below is a test run of the map.

Taking a break from Shadow Empire for some simple, straight up mayhem.

Doom Project Brutality 3.0
level is a remake of Doom 2 first level Entryway

Here's the second level of the remake called the gauntlet. I've also started playing without the crosshairs to aim by, It's taking some getting used to for each weapon, it's a work in progress, but feels more natural than chasing the crosshair.

This is my US pilot in his Curtiss Owl recon plane.  This match did not have any heavier fighters and our opponents ran out of planes at this point so we ruled the skies.

Oh yes, many a time.  And if you can survive the parachute down to the ground without being shot out of the sky your pilot can participate in the ground war.  Pilots are allowed to carry a side arm and a wrench.

Killing Floor 2 Halloween update, new map Hellmark Station. Been a bit since i played, tried on Suicide difficulty but kept getting killed, backed it down to hard difficulty. Short run, four waves and the boss. played as survivor class, they start with a random weapon, in this case the shovel.

Prodeus, my first and only kickstarter backed game. It's about to hit early access. Retro, classic FPS game, like that's rare these days. Think this one will have a long life with an apparently easy to use editor. There are already 60+ user levels released, and 2 test user campaigns so far and its only in closed beta. Right now there are only 3 official game levels released in the closed beta. Game's got the chops, maybe needs some weapon adjustments, but it plays fast like the doom games of old.

This is a short user made level, remake of the opening level of Doom 2016.

Contagion, zombie survival with different modes of play. This is simply wave based survival mode that gets more difficult the longer you survive. Played around with adding some editing in.

PRODEUS
Got my early access key a few days ago so taking it out for a spin. There's a prologue but this is the first armed level of the campaign. Played through this level twice, the default is medium, this is on very hard. i can tell they made some adjustments after the kickstarter campaign play throughs, game feels faster, still think the shotgun needs adjustment, feels a little weak but love the alt-fire of the shotgun for some long range sniping.

Post by: al_infierno on December 17, 2020, 02:12:37 PM
The funniest part of this clip is that this was entirely unscripted.  That "What a relief" response is just a generic response NPCs will give you when you hit Antagonize, followed by hitting Defuse (or if you generally do something threatening and then Defuse).  The delivery of that line was just absolutely perfect for that "I just watched a guy get beaten senseless, then the assailant told me he was joking" reaction.

Also, I didn't even mean to beat the guy senseless, I was just antagonizing people and hit the melee key by accident.   :-[  Once I grappled him, though, I figured I might as well follow through.

What's even funnier, and I have done this myself in games, is that the guy got beaten senseless all because of an error between the keyboard and the user.  I follow that same logic, if you mistakenly hit the beat 'em up button instead of the antagonize button you might as well commit to the mistake.

By the way that's how most of the nuclear wars get started whenever I play Civilizations.  LOL
