About your recordings - I will soon be receiving a few .zips that will make all of Buzz's levels easy to download from here. This will also include all of the levels that will be in the rampage, because one or two levels might be omitted for various reasons. Until then, you can download any levels that strike your interest from Buzz's Level Topic, which can be found HERE .
- All recordings MUST be done OFFLINE in MBP 1.50 RC1. If you are online the leaderboards, or in a previous/different version of the game, please download RC1 in the Downloads section of the site.
Wait, must we record our WRs? Not just .rec them and send them to you?
I'd recommend using both MBP RC1 and MBG for .rec files since some of buzz's levels were made for MBG rather than MBP (though playable in both). This will make it easier and I'm sure Kalle29 would love to join in if MBG was to be used.
Kalle29: depending. You might miss out on the Easter Egg and UT showing up, but everything else could be in there. It could be missing textures you only need to import. Depends on the level really.
Frostfire: AVIs are great, but you have two big problems:
- Raw AVI is going to be ~1GB (depending on the level, could be much bigger or much smaller) and not everyone has superduperawesome upload speeds. Most usually don't.
- They will then re-encode it to usually mp4, mov or divx avi, which you then have to re-convert to AVI (I use AviDemux for that, but VirtualDub with mp4 plugin works by doing a New Master File which gives you raw file but it's usually 4x+ bigger than the original mp4/mov/divxavi).
I don't mind either of those two because of the CPU I got and the huge amounts of free disk space I have. Mind you, I only got StewMan submitting Platform Training on AVI and that was 600mbs and took at least a week to get this done. With Xelna we used BitTorrent to transfer files (hence MBG/P were not a problem, but we did .rec because it worked) since we had weeks and months to transfer and our connection was good enough for us to transfer GBs of videos every 3-7 days.
You can provide 1.14 as an alternative since it works as well.
.rec are excellent in MBG, and appear to be somehow borked in 1.50, not sure how (I never played them enough, but on our tests they were okay). They used to work in Beta 1 and must've broken at some point. I suppose HiGuy can redo that at some point (would be nice), but just so you know 1.50 is really bad right now until Final version is out because every patch that goes out changes scripts and enough we have 1 script change and the whole .rec dies.
Hold on a moment. I noticed an issue regarding the marbles. I've heard that Buzz has a level called 8-bit, which requires big marble 1. It's not one of the levels I plan to do, but for whoever else is gonna do it needs to switch to BM1 for that level?
Slanted Ascension: 5.95
Possible improvement: 0.02
I'll take the Underwater ball!
Would you accept my video of Art of Trapdoors with the audio taken out completely (I assume you have your own soundtrack on top of the videos instead of ingame sounds)?
Same to Momentum. Google allows me to export/download in original upload format.
If yes for both, you know which marble I'm choosing
Okay. Slanted Ascension was 09/26/14
And I'll go for the Moshe ball.
