Hello people.

Help needed.. I played after my video 1 and used Fraps.
I recorded without a pause... But when i look were fraps files are saved i see this->



As you see it is not 1 big file while recording (about 30 minutes but  it is several files all 4.142 Mb
i did not press pause .

I was thinking i would get 1 big file that i could convert and upload ,
I looked in the fraps settings but cant find anything...

Strange ( (:
I would like to have my play uploaded in 1 vid But its all fragmented now.
any ideas's ?

Ill upload the second part as a test.

maybe this is not the correct forum that i ask questions about recording and fraps  ( Sorry).
Take Care

Hello,

After my addiction to Mass Effect  I did go back To Sc2. So i started the HD Mod.  (Looks Great!)

I just started a new game (HD-Mod) and i was happy surprised.

What i am planning to do is a walktrough/letsplay  on Youtube.

I will never forget the first time i played the original game in 1992!
I still have the original CD box and starmap.

And yes i was one of the very few who did beat the Ur-Quan in my first play trough Smiley

I still consider SC2 the best SF game that was ever created!

I never ever before did a letsplay ore walktrough on Youtube so forgive me if things go wrong.
I dont intend to promote myself.. but by making a walktrough playing the HD mod i hope more ppl will discover Sc2 and this beautifull HD Mod.

I would like to hear your opinions while i am playing the game.
My internet connection is not fast and i i wont use a mic.
Also i do have a very busy job so i dont know how frequently i will do vids.

I am recording with fraps.. so i have to convert my frapped games to mp4 before uploading.

I would like to have some feedback on this forum about :  shall i do a complete walktrough on Youtube ??

many many thanks to Dzanic ( and team ?)  for creating this mod!

It looks really beautifull!

You all take Care.

Emphyrio
(aka Iceage)

Ps uploading test video now it is  27.784 kb and it will take about 30 Minutes before upload is ready.
All tips are welcome.

Take Care

Sorry for my English (its not my native language)  ( I am Dutch  Eu)

Edit test video is uploading->

Hey,

To all you that want an epic adventure with a spaceship and explore a galaxy... Go to Ur Quan Masters

Original known as Starcontrol 2.

Ok the grapics are outdated.. true.. but fans just created a HD Mod on it.

Sc2 still has a fanbase!

Mass Effect took many may many things from that game...
As i said the grapics are outdate but the story S2 told us never dies!

The fanbase that sc2 has also never dies!

If you dont care about old grapics go and play! Its free to download.

You start on Earth and after that ther is a complete galaxy to explore! (You will meet many aliens)
Go and explore the Star Control Universe!

download is here--> ( Free ) !

Enjoy

Hi
of corse many of us aalready knew that a lot of Mass Effect was "coming" from Sc2.. But it amazed me that on the ME forums it  seems that the fans just now discovered that Smiley

Well maybe due this SC2 may get new player blood.

see this topic:
http://social.bioware.com/forum/Mass-Effect-3/Mass-Effect-3-Story-and-Campaign-Discussion-Spoilers-Allowed/Where-have-I-seen-this-beforeWhereOhWhere-14113089-1.html

my comment with promotion for P6014 and telling there they should play SC2 is on page 10 (Emphyr) io.

take care and regards from The Netherlands.

I am working so cant stay online.

Hi all,

Unfortunatly ME3 has a HUGE bug which is still not fixed.
Its impossible to import your shepard created in ME1-> Imported in ME 2  to ME3.

There is a topic on this with more as 50.000 views and loads and loads of reactions.

I also set a complaint and in the end i said :-> So i will not play ME3 until it is fixed.

I am gooing back to play Star Control 2 ( Urquan Masters) which in my opinion is the best SF game ever created.

Maybe this will bring fresh blood into SC2  (I hope so)

Take care you all.

11  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: Project 6014 – Ur-Quan Masters mod on: December 03, 2011, 09:23:56 pm
Hello Project team.

I just downloaded and installed the demo 2 on windows 7 ( No problems at all).
I have put all settings on highest possible and  just started playing My monitor is a iiyama prolite B2409HDS and my  Computer is also connect with a hdmi Cable to a panasonic 42 Inch Plasma television.

I LOVE THE HD  that is now showing full screen on both ( monitor and TV)  

although i have played the game over 20 times , This is a complete new experience!

I just  am at the very beginning of the game. I can play for a couple of hours before i have to go to sleep.
When i started the first time i saw no HD grapics  when i contacted the starbase chmrrrr. I remembered  the art of  Dczanik in several topics so i thought hmm i must have done something wrong. I went back to the settings and then noticed i had it on 800x600 so i have put it on 1280x960 and ran the game again! WOW! the intro looks Fantastic Both on Monitor and espacially on the Panasonic 42 Inch!!

FANTASTIC Job team!

I still consider SC2 as one of the best SF games ever! and i remember how exited i was when i  bought and played the original  when it came out!   (i still have the original box)

But This demo version 2 in HD is as i said a complete new experience playing Sc2!

I was addicted to the mass effect series the last couple of months playing a redhaired female adept Smiley named Nicole. But Nicole has to wait  for replays because I first have to discover everything in the  sc2 Demo.

1 problem i ran into... I use Gadwin Printscreen for screenshots. If i want to make a screenshot the game crashes . Also my mouse is not responding then and i have to do alt cntr dell to close the game with the taskmanager.

I sure can advise every player to look at the intro and  the game in HD settings  on a Big Television!  Smiley

Thanks for creating this demo!   Fantastic stuff!  

Ill start playing now and will write down any bugs i will be confronted with ( hopefully none)

What i saw sofar  in a few minutes of playing and liked  very much : The HD version: The dispatch of the lander, The rotating planets, The HD  biological  "Monsters".  

I would like to buy all members of the team a pizza and a beer  Wink

Thanks A lot!

Many regards from the Netherlands. ( excuse me for my terrible english).

Hi,
I am playing now several hours!  Wink I love it that the Melmorne now do sell fuel to you in exchange for biological data.

This is not a mod..... This is a SEQUEL!  I love it , it does bring all the old feelings of weeks ( months) playing, but yet its a complete new universe, a new quest and a new challenge and yet it feels so familiair.

I hope i will find a pod ship somewere with Ellen Ripley in it, a Pod ship with Zarla , and a Hi-jacked URquan ship with Fred Ford and Paul Reiche on it that needed to leave earth  in a ship to create a sequel to their game, and for dooing that had to experience this universe themselves.

Also I hope to find a surviving Culture 98 Traddash that survived all the Illwrath and civil wars and i hope this Traddash brave warrior will smoke a cigar Smiley

Again i wish to make my compliments to Cedric and the team!  and i repeat.. i will be honoured to buy you guys a pizza and a beer.


Take care
Regards from the Netherlands.

Code:
Cool.  You mind sharing how?

Played the game and once I entered Hyperspace, I used an audio patch cable to link the microphone jack to the headphone jack and recorded a few minutes in Hyperspace with Audacity.

Anyway the review is up! Hope you guys enjoy it. Had to break it into two parts (Bloody youtube restrictions!)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KIx36ZHbzE4 (Part I)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ecieeLXriaY (Part II)

Hope it brings some new fans over here too Smiley


I liked it .

For the full screen, if you select this options in the setup, you then cat toggle using F11 (or at least in Unix build you can)

For Zarla's ZEX scene - she did some fake VUX screenshots, that I am unable to find now...
TY i already found the fullscreen option  Wink

Zarla's screencaps and also her secret theater ( and more) are here->
  http://zarla.livejournal.com/192372.html   

She also investigated all the homeworlds after the species are blasted away by the kohr an.
If you google on Zarla Vux ore Zarla Starcontrol  there is a lot you can find! ( some really nice clay puppets also)  Grin

Take care ( i am working so i have to log off)


15  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: Project6014 demo release on: October 14, 2010, 02:53:03 am
It's people like you why I spend so many hours working on the game. So glad you like it!

As far as financial support. I'd rather you keep your own money and let others know about the game.

We're quite aware of Zarla! I'm a big fan of hers too. She's one of the people I follow on Deviant art, and I've seen the stuff on her website and frungylovers countless times. In fact, she sent me a message a couple days ago.  I'd love to see her join our team, but she's really busy.  I'm amazed she has any time at all.  If you look at the sheer volume of stuff she's done, you could almost imagine her never leaving her drawing tablet. She's amazing. Smiley


Well i am a very big Science Fiction Fan ( Vance , Niven , Heinlein, Bradburry etc etc!  Ok ill keep my money in my pocket but i would be honoured to buy pizza's for the team and a few beers!

Yep Zarla is amazing i think she might be the biggest fan ever for SC2  Cheesy Her screenshot walktrough with her comments are so funny!
espacially her Vux edits and secret stuff  Tongue

I bought SC 2 when it came out and still have the original box CD and map. Hey team it must have been amazing news for you that Fred and Paul played you'r demo!

I hope they ore someone else have discovered LV 42 and Leutenent Ellen Ripley  Wink

Ok about the demo i almost had no bugs ( windows XP) a couple of time music didnt play ( espacially after leaving Sol ore in a meeting with the Melmorne. Also i noticed i could pick up biological data life ( found 2 new one's ( are there more?) Found the egg flowers and the frogs. If i shoot at minerals they vanish but dont show in a cargo bay  storage  ( hmmm would have loved to have a Cargo unit!.)  


I really had a lot of fun playing this demo! Thank You!
I just started a new game again  Wink

Sorry for my english!

KEEP GOOING! it is great! and it feels really like playing  a sequel  already now 100 times better  as SC3 was .
