IMO i think this video is crap, but anyways, please tell me what you think and what i should improve.

This is one of my ways to assassinate the captain, it shows an easy and fast way to kill Pietro da Siena without getting attention. Enjoy.

PS: You can note that the Difficult is 5, but this Borgia Tower isn't hard, watch the video and you'll see.

After i poisoned the guard, all the others near him will go to a "hiding spot" to search for me. With that being said you can note that the captain's nearest hiding spot is the haybale, so he'll go that way. Then all you need to do is assassinate him after he leaves his "safe spot".
PS: Yeah, i could have done a stealth assassination by doing a leap of faith into that haybale and then stealth assassinating him, but i didn't thought on that when i was recording. Tongue

Ok, the video is quite good. But, in my opinion, it would be so marvelous if you guys recorded with a capture card or at least something better than just showing your TV screen. I know it costs some money, but the quality is sooo better. Anyway, perhaps that's not the right place to discuss this point.

I'm pretending into buying a capture card, but not right now. Anyway thanks for commenting.

I think I have a video where I do the exact same thing, assassinate him from the hay bale.

I thought the video quality was fine. It would be acceptable for the front page.

My advice would be to rehearse the assassination more times or do multiple takes until most everything goes according to plan and without hesitation. I didn't understand the parts where you fast forwarded. Was that time needed to draw out the Captain? (Note: You don't need a save/restore procedure to replay Borgia Captains. Just skip igniting the tower.)

Overall, it was a good first effort. Please continue making original videos. You may end up on the front page!

You won't even feel the blade.

What Stabby said. Making videos isn't like playing the game at all. It feels more like work (to me, at least). Tongue I had to redo many parts of my San Pietro Area Exploit video many times. Tongue

Good idea using the poison darts. I tend to completely forget they exist and rarely use them when I play. For this tower I throw a body from the roof to get Pietro out of his shelter.
What I like in Borgia towers is how the guards don't bother to fight you if you kill the Captain before their eyes. Pretty enjoyable.
Also, what's with this guard scream at 2:36 ? He sounds like a scared rooster. (not that I ever heard one but you got my point)

Thanks stab !
I'll try to do better next time.
Also i'll try to improve the video quality.

Answer for your question:

"I didn't understand the parts where you fast forwarded. Was that time needed to draw out the Captain?"
Yes, kinda this... I fast fowarded the parts that i'm waiting til the poisoned guard dies. Wink

Thats alright, I dont expect you to search through all the front page videos or even topics on the brotherhood page to see if anyone else has done a similar video.

I dont like how the guards run away once you assassinate the captain, I like planning an escape route but there is no point if they all run away.

Im wondering if you could use this to your advantage in a story mission though. Lure the captain to a guarded area in a core mission and kill him, and all the guards run away. Might even work in a main assassination.

I'm planning on getting some type of recording device. That's only because I now have a job. All the decent ones are at least $50 or more. My EasyCap was $15 and my test videos were awful even after I finished tweaking the settings. Grainy video and terrible sound. Plus, there was a full second lag time. If a video camera pointed at the tv does the trick (or a webcam for that matter Wink ) then go for it.

Agreed.

I was thinking into getting an EasyCap or a Dazzle, but if it is so bad as you said what i should get ?

EasyCap isn't very good in my experience. I heard Dazzle is one of the best, though.

I think it will be pretty hard to find a Dazzle here... Any other Capture Card suggestions ?
Otherwise, if i don't find a Dazzle or an EasyCap here i'll have to buy it on Amazon and wait 1+ month til it comes to my country. Stare

I use Easycap, I think its just fine but then again I dont really care much for graphics. check out a few of my latest videos and if you think you wouldnt mind your video in that quality, go for it.
