I have just completed my first commentar…

I have just completed my first commentary and boy is it bad. Not the gameplay, well, that’s only average. What the hell do I talk about for 14 minutes? I ramble on about retro computers, a bit of WordPress, assembler coding, and a tiny bit of gameplay related chatter.

I edited it all in iMovie 08, on Colin’s recommendation, and it was easy enough to use once I learned a few basic tricks.

I don’t know yet if I’ll make it public, but if you’re really curious about it, send me a DM on Twitter and I’ll send you the url when it’s uploaded. Warning, it’s cringe worthy!

In case you’re wondering, I used HDPVRCapture to record the game. I bought EyeTV the day before but it never worked properly so I opened a ticket on their support system. Finally, today they replied. Turns out the EyeTV 3 only supports the North American (NTSC?) HDPVR. It says so, buried deep down in this page. Don’t worry if you can’t find it, you’ll have to hunt. Thankfully they’re giving me a refund. That’s great because HDPVRCapture only cost me $29.95 and works perfectly!

  1. So I guess that explains the EyeTV mystery, seems odd to me the only difference in PAL and NTSC in HD would be the frame rate I think.

    BTW I sent you an email asking for a link to the video, I gotta see this.

    1. Yeah, I’m amazed that they wouldn’t support PAL as they’re kissing a huge market goodbye. Their tech support was very slow but at least they’re reasonable and will give me a refund.

  2. Ohhhhhh great can’t wait to see it mate.

    I’ve nearly finished my first commentary as well, it is of course WOW and I spent last night rendering the 1st cut so I could apply the commentary. Saw a few mistakes so will change that today, I have about 30 seconds of commentary to finish so hopefully tonight it will be live 😉

      1. Mate, I love it and you should so put in live and not unlisted.

        You mention World of Warcraft so c’mon what’s all that about. I showed Damien as well and he said the same!!!!!!!!

        Hopefully finish the commentary off in my lunch, I reckon the guys will hear me in my office and be like WTF is he doing hahahaha!!!!!!

      2. Yup, I had my fill of online adventures in my days of playing MUD a long time ago. Text mode rocks 🙂

        I remember I had macros to run to popular locations, watch my health meter and run away if it went low, and all sorts of things. Sucks up way too much time though!
