Let's Play Deus Ex

Post by Balthelion » Tue Jan 08, 2013 10:03 pm

My debut Let's Play video. Doing this (and possibly others) as a test run before i try a LOTRO one.

So for those of you who remember it fondly, and those heathens like Arc among you who have never played it, enjoy!

LOL well that just wasted my play time for tonight laughing at this!

Good start Bal, only trouble is I think it is ambient lighting due to the night time mission? But I couldnt see much at all.

The whole game is at night :P

The problem is it records darker than it appears in game, and YouTube makes things darker, so I'm still trying to find that "sweet spot" atm.

The same goes for the audio. Mic is recording a bit quiet in some places, while some noises (BLOODY SEAGULLS!) are really loud.

The second video, which i'm uploading now, but probably won't publish until tomorrow, has had a bit of brightness amplification applied post-recording, which should help a bit. I recorded episodes 1-3 back-to-back, so I think my first brightness tweaks were with Episode 4.

Looking forward to part II. Cant wait to see how you explore her back passage (ooooh errrr missus)!

Ammo seems a real problem on that difficulty setting.

Well at least everyone else is enjoying my misfortune :mrgreen:

Stay tuned for Episode 2, "Whip That Ass!".

No deaths - though plenty of close calls. And a couple of classic moments and memorable quotes (hint: One of them is the episode title :P)

Indeed! :mrgreen:

I think I've finally got a handle on the brightness issue with the 4th episode, although this is based on the rendering previews, not the final render, or what it eventually looks like on youtube. Whether it still remains suitably bright after that remains to be seen. I'm having to deal with the brightness post-recording since nothing seems to make it record any brighter.

If the render of Ep4 is looking good once i do it tomorrow, i might try re-rendering Ep3 with the new settings too.

I believe I've also sorted out the audio now too (episode 6 and onwards), Which should mean that i come through louder, and most if not all sound effects are quieter (some seem to come through a lot louder than they should on the sound effects channels).

-----

Episode 2 is already uploaded to YouTube, and scheduled to release itself automatically at 12pm Midday GMT tomorrow (Wednesday), so if you're dying to see the next one and don't here from me by then, take a look and it should be there :)

I'm planning to release 1 every day, hopefully at midday if this attempt at scheduled releasing works out :)

Episode 2 might be delayed.

My trick with the rendering seems to be legit. If the brightness still remains good in the test video im just uploading to youtube now, then i will re-render episodes 2 & 3 to improve the brightness levels.

In which case, second episode should be up mid-afternoon for you guys to laugh at :)
