Description

We need the following:

  • start up and gameplay video, 1.5 or 2 minutes should be enough
  • widescreen screenshots, 5 to 10 should be enough
  • cropped screenshots to be used as banners:
    • one ModDB profile header: 200kb max, 950x150 px recommended
    • one LGDB banner header: 50 KB max, must be exactly 960x120 pixels

I assigned this issue to RaFaL since he already started making an intro video, but anyone can contribute.

Hi Radegast,
when ET:L is actually available on ModDB,
could it also available on Desura?
Would be great!

Hard to say... Desura needs binary files. Prefered way to distribute linux binaries are native distro packages.

Well, it’s possible, but you definitely should use packages from distro (they will be created for distros repos).

This may be hard to make a gameplay video
Not sure what to inculde in this video

#4 Updated by Mateos over 6 years ago

What to show: new features ^^' This is THE point of making a video about a product; What makes Legacy different from ETmain?

Almost nothing currently
Many things are changed under the hood.

That’s why there is no point in making a video...

#7 Updated by Mateos over 6 years ago

This ticket doesn’t need to be done and closed in the next week. When the focus will be on (mainly?) new things, a video would be appropriated

#8 Updated by IR4T4 over 6 years ago

RaFal, just create a video of the easy install process of ET:L (no patches, no PB shit). In my eyes this is one of the big benefits of ET:L.
Show there is a new path structure (see fs_homepath on windows).
Start a listen server and add some bots ... at the end list all features of our main page (http://www.etlegacy.com/).

RaFaL, I suggest some improvements to this video.

  1. Cut off the last half a minute, so it ends at 2:52.
  2. During the installation process set the video speed to 2x or more. People don’t like looking at a progress bar for 20 seconds.
  3. Correct a few mistakes and typos, e.g. "have been" instead of "has been" and "will be have to choose"

Good job.

I think you could hide the icons on the desktop and maybe cut off the taskbar in your editing program.

Also, font’s color is way too... ekhm... oczojebny

#18 Updated by Mateos over 6 years ago

Fences to hide easily the Desktop icons (Take a version before 2.0, a still-free one)
Kill explorer.exe for the bar
