Well, you haven't been getting any from me for a long while - last time I mentioned it was when I just explained the logic behind whishing I had one from before. And I wasn't even aware I got it, and bought another extra copy for valuing the sheer ammount of fun I've had on my last 2 playthroughs while not expecting anything.

And the whole "Mage Fist" art placeholder thing could've been a lot more clear as far as my intentions are concerned - I still stand behind my art criticism. It was ment to be just that.

Anyway, ty very, very much.

There's still too much whining about in-game references, though.

When is the last time anyone has asked for an in-game reference? I recall a discussion many months ago, but that's it.

Heh, now I'll have to fiddle around with different race/class combos to figure out exactly where my name pops up.

Yeah, and I was never whining.

I was mostly just joking around. I'm glad to see that Darvin and Lujo got references out of it though.

I was actually trying to dig up that discussion today, but couldn't find it in the enormous bulk that is my backlog.

Anyway, all this has motivated me for something else we haven't seen in a while, and that is another one of my harr... I mean - VIDEOS!

Well, that and Gavster was asking whether there were any more out there, from the forum vets...

Yeah, I was never too good at making them, but I'll do a short one and put it up, I just taped an Elf Fighter run that is not very interesting and optimal at all, but at least I can whine about the small gripes and point out stuff, and show the CB off a tiny bit. I might to a halfling bloodmage as well. It's just warmup for a few more flattering ones, there's quite a few niceties to show off, game's actually been getting better by the week...

The rendering software is giving me hell, but I hope I get it all sorted out soonish :)

I should really make some playthrough/tutorial videos, myself.

I've never found a good free solution for video capture. It really shouldn't be this complicated to get passable video quality, synchronized sound, and not crashing and losing all progress after a 10-minute recording session.

Eh, I use fraps. Its working for me, the quality is awfull, the captured files are humongous, but it gets the job done. Don't ask me how I edit them though...

Ugh. Videos are beyond my technical expertise. I guess I'll stick with annotated playthroughs.

Anyways, good for those who got references and let's move on before others (and/or me) ask.

I could teach you as long as you can, err, use your legaly obtained funds, to err, acquire the proper software. Errrr.

And, um, say, Avatar, what's your first name?

And also, video rendering, will upload tommorrow. It's nothing spectacular - it's a video of a purpusefully airheaded northern desert run where I use CB to pull fireballs out of my posterior just to show what's five gold getting you these days. Also a move that I picked up from Darvin ^^

Hmm. OS X is supposed to have built-in screen recording, so maybe I'll try doing a video or two, too. 8-) Probably a purist vicious win. Any suggestions as to which vicious dungeon I should do?

Well Daemonic Library seemed pretty easy - it should be doabe purist. Whatever you do don't do Namtar - that place needs a nerf*, and last thing we need is you making it look like a cakewalk :lol:

*Or as Avatar put it much better and more prcisely - a layout redesign - something more Binlor-proof and less insanely cramped.
