    Default Let's Play: Tower of Heaven

    Okay, I'm currently 0/3 Let's Plays. I really want to take up LPing, so I FINALLY figured a good game, one I can beat in half an hour.

    Tower of Heaven.

    It's hard as hell, but I love it, and can beat it rather quickly.

    so...

    May heaven grant you fortune.

    Going to screenshot it instead of doing video, just so I don't need to bother with any software I don't understand. I've figured out what went wrong with my Starcraft let's play pictures, and can deal with it this time. >.>

    I'd love to, but so far, I have screenshots. If anyone could show me some free software I could use, I'd love to do it with video.

    This first update, though, will be screenshot'd. Don't mind the background. >.>

    So, I've recorded it. Where should I upload to?

    I've done levels 1-5, and will do them in bursts of 5 'till I finish it.

    Depends on the video quality and how much you like the video hoster. Personally i'd recommend either youtube (10min limit per file) or viddler (500mb limit per file).

    I decided to record with Camstudio, and puload to Youtube.

    So, I recorded it, watched it, went to upload it to Youtube and... It's not in my CamStudio folder. Anyone have a suggestion a potential issue?

    The FPS is a little bad too, but eh, I guess I can deal with it.

    You know, I quite literally just finished playing this game. As in, I sat down at my computer, stumbled across this game, thought "Oh, this is fun," played through it, and then checked this forum.

    Figures this would happen in the game where the main enemy is god...

    Generally slow DL time, so I'd rather ask...

    Does Fraps have a free movie recorder?

    Hm, okay. I'll try looking at another bit of recording software. Camstudio seems to be pretty laggy regardless.

    Well, you could try Debut Video Capture instead. (You can actually use the Camstudio codec with it. Alternatively try searching for the Lagarith codec or capture directly to wmv or whatever format you like better.)

    Recording speed is highly dependant on the codec you use for it.

    Edit: Made a test video with it. Works fine.

    Sorry, I'm barely competant with technology- What exactly is a "codec"?

    A google search didn't give any results that explained things.

    Uh... it's a plugin for the recorder/player a video is recorded/played with, depending on format. (All video players come with a couple of standard plugins.)

    Try using Debut Video Capture or CamStudio and set the Encoder (writes the video. Decoder reads it.) to something different if you experience lag.

    I recorded that video with Debut with the Lagarith Lossless codec as .avi, then opened it in VirtualDub to adjust the audio (Video -> Framerate -> Change so video/audio duration match. Only actually necessary for longer videos as the audio desyncs) and saved it in xvid, since thats smaller without losing noticably quality (but its not all that good for recording, since its slowish for me).

    And since this wasnt complicated enough i converted it to .flv, since that's viddlers native format (otherwise it would reencode it, which i find rather undesirable due to the quality change). But if you use youtube you can skip that, however reencoding it with virtualdub is probably necessary anyway, as Youtube/Viddler doesn't have all codecs ever. (Lagarith and the Camstudio codec for example arent supported and will throw errors when you try to upload that.)

    Overall this will require barely 10 mouseclicks of you, despite sounding complicated.

    Update: Trying to fiddle around and fix the choppy rate of the video.

    This computer is kinda virus ridden, so I'll try it on my brother's, which is less so.

    I am. The issue being I want my shiny-clean computer to have Windows 7, not vista (I prefer 7), and need to wait to get the phyiscal disk back from my brother.

    So, I wiped my computer, and it's saying that it has "preformed an illegal operation".

    I can't remember what exactly I used to do about it, but I think it's poorly interacting with something running in the background.

    If this doesn't work, I suppose I can just screenshot it.

    No it isn't, and yes it has.

    Look, I want to do this. I really do. It's just, when someone reccomended the video Let's Play, I really wanted to do that

    I guess I'll just do screenshots, then.

    Seeing this in video form would definitely be great, but your computer seems to oppose that idea with all its might. This is ...quite odd, to say the least.
