YouTube - Destroying Gaomdo
« on: September 02, 2012, 11:41:35 am »
Hey everyone!

A short video of myself playing TCO, a boss battle against Gaomdo. I believe this video will blow your mind, but you can be the judge of that:

Spoiler (hover to show)

I made the video in 720p HD, but blinking YouTube hasn't enabled HD for some infuriating reason. Will try and sort it out in future videos.

Difficulty is Extreme, no lives. The video is being posted in this forum because I believe this is a legitimate strategy against Gaomdo, no matter how hard he bugs.

Thanks!

Well yes, it's an epic **** video (and to think one day TCO would possibly become another speedrun game).

There's just a few issues with the presenting of your video:

-Thread is named as Destroying Gaomdo, the boss is named Gaomdo... But surprise, in video title it's "Gamdo".
-The battle lasts about 20 and ? seconds, not 15.
-You spend about 50-60% of your video duration on talking to the watcher of the video, although you could save in both video running time and filesize (the higher quality the more) by adding those texts in the video description OR in video annotiations, as provided by Youtube, if more fitting.

So i.e. if you created a video guide of marking and explaining digsite locations, it'd be more efficient to add the text to the video annotations instead of spending in-game time to note where the locations are, what they contain and how much dig power is required (I know it's not the best example but it should give you an image of what I mean).

Cheers

Thanks for the useful advice!

Hm! Hm! Hm! I think I could create something nasty...  To the game, of course ::)
