So I'm supposed to be getting my capture card next week. I figured I'd use it primarily to record each ACB mission in my first playthrough. I don't wanna do a casual "play through it, look like a dumbass 'cuz I've never seen these levels before" series. For those of you who have seen my (crappy) Youtube videos, you know that I put in a lot of captions to try and make situations humorous and odd music to keep it interesting. I won't do any of these or voice-overs or audio-swaps.

Also, what would you guys like to see that makes this different or unique? Maybe I can scout each mission and do reports on guard positions, the fastest path, silent paths (without being seen), etc.

Just wondering if I can actually contribute to the site for once. Big smile

This sounds like a great idea! You could THB's official video walkthrough for AC:B.

Maybe you could show how to complete each mission with 'Full Syncronisation', supposedly that will include completing it 100% stealthy.

Yeah something like that sounds good. Since it has a replay feature, I can take requests even when I'm finished with the game.

One of the developers (I think it was in one of the Dev Diaries) said that there ARE little descriptions of what Ezio did exactly during that event. So I could go through it like I would normally at first, then try the "historically accurate" version, then different techniques. This is coming along nicely. Cool

It's a nice idea! in my opinion you should do this, i was going to do this but i gave up because i don't have a capture card and i don't gonna buy one now.. Tongue

But when i buy my capture card i will make some stealth tips, assassination tips and hints or something like that. Big smile

Hey Danpii! Looks like it's up to you now! You're in luck from my misfortune, as my laptop's tech is unsuitable for the capture card I ordered! I'm unable to buy a new one (especially by the game's release) so you're free to do it if you like. Good luck! Big smile

This is Full Syncronization, fulfilling a few requirements to do it similarly Ezio did it. The example I keep seeing is this one part taking on a bunch of the Romulus Cult and you can't take any damage. What they keep mentioning is that some missions will want you to kill only with the Hidden Blade and/or remain anonymous. There are a lot of cool requirements they could apply.

And that would be a cool series of guides to have. Good luck and have fun!

In one of the gameplay videos, in order to get full sync, a goal was not to lose any health.

Wait, thats bull. The developers said you can't replay story missions.... Oh, and make it a playlist/ series. At the end of it, show us your stats.

Lol really, but i'm a little busy these days, and i guess in AC:B days too, so i guess i will not be making videos... Puzzled

Well I'm planning on getting a new laptop by Christmas (one that'll have newer hardware) so if no one wants to take up this video series, I'll try to be able to do it by then. It's not a necessity to the site; I just thought it would be interesting. Big smile

UPDATE: I recieved the correct setup disc for the Ulead software. It records well, but I'm having some issues with the framerate. There's obviously a split-second delay with the gameplay, but every once in a while, the video lags and I can't do much without failing. Anyone have any tips?

If I end up getting the capture card to work smoothly, then I'll do something else, since while I wasn't able to do anything, Jack called it. This section is up to you Jack! Good luck! Big smile

No reason why you cant do it anyway. Its how we get good videos made here, I watch other videos, find out better ways to improve it our use their tricks in other situations, and along the way develop my own. You could probably create a completely different walkthrough than mine if the levels give us a lot of variety

True, true. We'll see what happens. Big smile

The only issue I'm having at the moment is the framerate. It keeps lagging and I'm unable to play smoothly. I've gone through the options and preferences menus and can't seem to find a way to make it run smoother. Stare
