Awesome new screen recorder I just got, hopefully good enough quality for MBP WRR 3. Thanks to Rosie for help!

Looks good! By the way, if you turn off environment maps and turn graphics to Medium when recording non-MBU levels, it will look a lot more suitable to what you're playing. Gems won't be transparent before you get a certain distance from them and bumpers won't reflect when environment maps are off, and the shaders make segments more obvious in tubes and things which is why you can see dark patches inside the tubes.

I have MBP 1.7.4 on macOS, and I have set the graphics quality to 'Medium', but I don't know how to turn off environment maps. I also have this scenario when gems appear transparent when the marble is some distance from them.

Awesome Hint:

Since the Awesome Time/Score is secret, you will have to beat it in order to find out what it is. Just practice every day, and be ready to keep pressing the 'Restart' button...A LOT!

You can turn them off by opening the console with ` when you're on the home screen and typing
$pref::environmentmaps = 0;

I think

Hype hype -- a new video, my best yet in terms of editing!

My first PQ video, 6 runs, 5 of which beat the Awesome Time. Be Elusive does not pass the awesome time (FROSTY HOW) but I'm sure it should mostly be satisfactory.

As for the music -- well, I'm sure you'll all recognize it. ;)

Enjoy!




Level Notes:

Be Elusive: Not much to say here. Path didn't take long to come up with and good enough to net 2nd place, although 7 seconds behind WR.
Blast to the Beat: Boy, I won't soon forget this one. Got this on the morning of my long and storied flight to Europe, and the time and path stood as WR by a long shot for a while, until Xedron recently found a way to get 23 seconds.
Unseasonably Cold: You may notice I got a lucky shot from the block above the beam where I did the EH, boosting me to the TM in two bounces. Ending is a tad sloppy, but the rest is good enough.
Work in Progress: El_Robert's path. You may notice I used arrow keys for a few of these runs -- while I was in Greece, my mom's computer which i used had a very sensitive mousepad, which would activate powerups by an accidental motion of my finger. I got used to using arrow keys again, which i had used my whole life up till 2014. I'm glad I can now comfortably switch between the two ways.
Terminal Velocity: A great improvement to Imperial's run, which has since been beaten by BlastedMarble largely due to a tighter ending sequence.
Verticality: Barely beats Rosie's run due to a tighter ending on my part, even though her overall run is better. I wonder in awe how Regislian has 15 seconds...

That music is so epic, and it goes really well with those epic runs! Epic job!

A year ago today, in 2016, this community saw the release of an epic project. December 22nd was the day that Rosie’s Mini Mod (then Rozi’s Mini Mod) came out to the public (at 1:36 PM, nearly this exact time), and was welcomed with many rave reviews as a 46-level masterpiece of speedrunners’ delight. Many top players smashed some world records while we were coming up on the new year, but since then this mod hasn’t seen much action. However, back in October, while California wildfires raged around me, I stayed inside from the smoky air and decided to embark on a full speedrun of all 46 levels in this mini mod to commemorate its 1-year anniversary today. Not only is this my likely my best video yet, but it is by far my longest. In the mini mod’s WR thread ( marbleblast.com/index.php/for ...), 31 out of the 46 levels have listed WRs, and 22 out of those 31 WRs were beaten in this video (one of which I already held). Note that there are 3 levels in which my time beats the WR but I have a better time unrecorded (Tutorial II: Powerup Loop, 13.69, Tutorial V: Moving Platforms, 5.43, and Grassy Speedrun, 12.52. Tutorial V is also the only run in this video recorded in 2016). Also note that Perilous Purple Path was recorded on an updated version of the level which Rosie sent to me (and she will hopefully add that version to a patch someday), therefore my time on that level is the first on that version (so the older WRs do not apply). I had a lot of fun seeing this project come to fruition, and I give my thanks to Rosie for all these epic levels and helping me with some video editing details, and to hPerks for the Green Road path. That said…

Enjoy!

This is the kind of stuff that gets you into the top tier of the marblers in this community. Really nicely done!

Yes, an overly fancy title for a rather simple video. A former WR, two present WRs (one of which is my best PQ WR), and a small bonus you'll appreciate :) (hint: it got beaten exactly a year ago today.)

Enjoy!

Honestly feeling a bit emotional because of how pretty the piano part of the song sounds as well as how nostalgic the whole song itself is.

Wonderful video. All of the runs were really really well performed. It was worth the wait.

Short and sweet! Especially liked the cheeky tricks on Messing with Physics, and Glacier Meadow was well-deserved.

Who's ready to see some UNOPTIMIZED OLD HAT HANDHELD CAMERA RUNS!!!!1!!!111!1!1!1!11!!!

Okay, so basically for the longest time I had an idea in mind of uploading a old-school "marble blast custom levels" video, but that was before PQ came out and all the superb custom levels on the leaderboards, yadda yadda yadda. Jokes aside, I'm a bit sad this never happened, but I may as well upload its remains -- four very old runs that have never made it off my hard drive -- along with a WR I got recently that will probably be beaten soon. Tower of terror is the run that almost got me banned back in 2014, islands of ice is a random run with screenshot glitch from 2014, sinuous has been lying around on my computer since July 2016 and is still WR, and timing loop is a very unoptimized time that just shows the path, also from 2016.

Enjoy!

Music -- an oldie that just happened to fit the video's length lol. Techno Twilight by Dimrain47.
