Did anyone fish LB out from the bottom of the well he was skyping from?

He sounded okay online, but in post, it was all but impossible to alter his sound, so I left it as it is except for trying to boost it. That sometimes made him unintelligible, though.

Excellent podcast guys! Thanks to David Heath for his candid and detailed comments about what's happening at LnL. As a customer, everything David said was music to my ears. I was particularly pleased with what he had to say about cleaning up and standardizing rules. I've been a long time fan and player of LnL games and rules "wonkiness" was an area of weakness in the past.

Looking forward to many great new games from Lock n Load!  O0

Thanks guys, a most excellent podcast again. Great to hear what David Heath was saying about their approach. I am eagerly waiting for my printed LnL tactical demo sets to arrive, what a neat idea. I actually not only printed out the play through guide but laminated the couple of extra counters for it at work. Got my attention with this, they did  O0

Yeah, he was fascinating to listen to.

Funny thing about this one - it starts in mid-conversation because Brant went to go do something with his kids and left us to chat. Cyrano immediately started grilling Mad Russian, so I just kept the recording going and edited all the pre-show crap out. Got a good 8 minutes or so before Brant came back and brought us all down.

(Just kidding, Brant.)

Ha! Saying that yesterday might have made me give you a different answer.

The original recording was almost 1 hour, 30 minutes. I cut 20 minutes from it just from removing extraneous crutch words. Not saying anything bad about that...everyone does it. And I'm far, far too anal over audio production to ever make this take a short amount of time.  :-\

Just a quick little expansion on one of the questions covered  in the interview-  Do I have any say on where and what charts and ancillary bits go on a map?  The short answer is I usually put then where they are already located on the beta-test map I get sent.  The longer answer would be that  I am reluctant to make those kinds of choices.  The way I see it, I am just the map-guy.  The designers and/or developers should know the game waaay better than me.  I should not be telling them what should and should not be on the map, they should be telling Me.

Hey Tim...I usually co-host with Brant and do the production work but couldn't that night thanks to illness. Great interview. Wish I was on, as I do graphic design (I'm an instructional developer by trade) and have done plenty of map reworks just for myself, for older board games/VASSAL...though nothing I've shared. I agree, Illustrator is a pain; it's not nearly as intuitive as Photoshop is. And I've had to learn every piece of Adobe software from scratch on my own without any course work (except PageMaker and Photoshop around 2003 or so for my return to college). Illustrator makes beautiful vector graphics, but it's like wrangling cats to get it to behave sometimes. :)

Title: Re: GrogCast Season 3 is escaping into the wild!
Post by: avrotim on March 03, 2016, 11:55:43 AM
I know right?  And the really annoying thing is, when you open up Illustrator, it Looks pretty much like Photoshop.  So you expect the buttons and tools to be in the same place and work the same way, but they dont!  For me the biggest hurtle so far is not learning Illustrator, but having to Un-learn how to do things The Photoshop Way.

And!  Why why why can't I open Illustrator files in Photoshop when I can open Photoshop files in Illustrator??  Com'on Adobe!  Get yer act together!
Title: Re: GrogCast Season 3 is escaping into the wild!
Post by: BanzaiCat on March 03, 2016, 12:28:46 PM
One reason why I'm more clicky with Adobe interfaces is that a lot of the key commands don't transfer from one program to another; I drove my first supervisor crazy because I wouldn't learn them ('why don't you just click X and X? Dude, come on' was something I heard a lot). Illustrator would be much less a pain in the butt if it had similar commands or structure. I don't use it nearly often enough to maintain familiarity with it, unfortunately, but find that it's not too difficult to get back into it when I need to - at least, when doing basic designs anyway. Or when following a tutorial.

As far as PS files in IL - as far as I know you can indeed open them. What I've usually done is just drag the PS file into the IL stage area and it will pop up a window asking you about layering (that's another annoying thing about Illustrator is that layering doesn't work the same as it does in PS). I can't recall if you can import a multi-layered PS file, but I do know it will at least drop it in there. At least, it does with CC. We switched over to it last year. (Another gripe is having to pay monthly to access all Adobe CC products instead of licensing each version...but oh well.)

(http://www.mememaker.net/static/images/memes/3699131.jpg)

LOL  ;D

Seriously, maybe that's a limitation of the earlier versions. I'm lucky to have a company that doesn't mind shelling out $200 a month just on licenses for the four of us so we get to stay on the edge of their latest versions, but...I've worked with Adobe products a long time (since early 2007) and I STILL barely scratch the surface with most of them, though PS, Premier, and Flash are probably the ones I feel most at ease with.

Mirth, if you want a leg up on the South China Sea situation in gaming and haven't checked these out you might want to:

Interview with Jon Compton where he discusses games on the subject (including Breaking the Chains):

http://armsandinfluence.typepad.com/IBD/IBDEp59.mp3

The article Compton wrote is in Counterfact #1.

And the book he mentions (and it IS the bible on the subject):

Anti-Access Warfare: Countering A2/AD Strategies - Sam J. Tangredi

Hope these help.

And seeing you're a fan of AAR's (I don't know where I got that idea from...) this is a favorite of mine you might enjoy:

http://talk.consimworld.com/WebX?14@@.1dd52f7d/667

The word you are looking for is 'narrative'. Enrico Viglino (love him or hate him he is a true grog) mentions it throughout his videos. He looks for the story that the game is trying to tell you and while not going into as much descriptive detail as Joel went into I feel they are both describing the same thing. To me it is the most important part of the experience otherwise we're just pushing cardboard on paper.

No problem. After I listened to the podcast I bought Counterfact #1 and realized this was the book I was looking for. I loved Jon's comment that you could learn more from Monopoly about the SCS situation than from the games being created about it. I have Red Dragon and it just felt all wrong...like playing WWII PTO with China pasted over the JPN parts. :)

He'll be joining a union next ......and expecting holiday pay and such ...sheesh !!!!!

Excellent episode, guys!

Airborne: I don't know if I mentioned this somewhere before but Matrix owes you a percentage of my purchase of Command.  I purchased that solely based on your AAR's and you first appearance on the Grogcast. 

Keep up the good work fellas and thanks for the mention at the end. O0

My eldest (her dad) has been there several times, and to Paris and he would agree with you. I'm not totally convinced that at her age she will take it all in, although she is very bright for her age. just hope that she is not disappointed when she sees Mickey Mouse.

She'll probably say 'Hey, MM does a great MD impression...........'

I think she'll just enjoy feeling like a princess for the day , I'm sure she'll remember that ! Most of the little girls there were wearing princess dresses , it was so cute . Heck me and my daughter felt like princesses and we are grown ups .....kinda !!  ;D we didn't wear the dresses though  :uglystupid2:  I did see one grown woman dressed as maleficent which is kind of worrying , lol , I wouldn't take it that far , I know the difference between fantasy and reality  :D  and if MD is Micky we all need to worry .........shudder  :2funny: :2funny:

Hey Guys

First time on the Forum and love the pod cast.

In the most recent podcast I heard you mention Liberty or Death.  I would be happy to connect by Skype/Vassal to go through the rules, answer questions or play a bit.

Let me know how I can help.

He sounds like he doesn't get much time for himself , let alone anything else , I guess we should cut him some slack , he does a great job with the editing I think :) I think you two make a good double act to be honest :) you guys and your guests are a lot of fun to listen to  O0
I'd be listening to the podcast right now if I could but I'm currently sat in a cafe waiting for my daughter to come out of the hairdressers , not a bad task really !!! But then I'm out after for most of the night , so it looks like tomorrow might be my listening day ... Sigh :(

Great episode guys  O0 I think you did banzai cat proud there Brant with the hosting , great job :) and yeah , getting older ,ouch , painful ! What I think though it's not so much the getting older bit that sucks , because honestly I wouldn't want to be stuck with the brain of a 21 year old forever , lol , but it's the looking older , omg , I hate aging !!!!!
great guests this week , you two guys were very entertaining I thought  8) it seems none of us will ever get the gaming time in we want unless we all get divorced or stay single  :2funny:  OR marry a fellow gamer !!!!  :crazy2:

Banzai, from what I've heard FFG doesn't send review copies out to many people at all these days. A few of the absolute big boys, and that's it. We'll get there...eventually...
