Let's Play Is LIVE!
« on: December 21, 2012, 11:08:30 pm »
Okay, so I started my Let's Play, and have uploaded the first episode to YouTube. Please feel free to comment on my lack of ability, or any requests you may have; or even suggestions on how I might survive long enough to get to the end of the game.

Either subscribe to me, or check back here for episodes.

If the videos don't play, they might still be being processed by YouTube; leave them for half an hour and try again. If you still have problems, let me know

great :) but I think you should say a bit more about OpenXcom. This will be for people who didnt read our forum and want know more about it.

Makes sense. I've just recorded Episode 2 (two-parter), but I'll add a bit of detail in Episode 3.

I'll add the links when they've uploaded and processed

hmmm... yeah, you should talk a bit about the interface improvements, like changing levels with the mouse wheel and the like.

to help with your mis-clicks, maybe you should turn on the path preview? it always helps me, and it also looks cool :)

also, I think that one time where your soldier wouldn't go where you wanted him to go on the first floor of the building? I think it was because there was a soldier occupying that tile on the ground floor. I believe that's still an issue :) preventing soldiers from stepping onto each other's heads also prevents them from moving over each other, even though there's a ceiling between them... :)

To be honest, I'm probably a bit out of touch with all the changes. If there are particular things you think I should mention, pleast let me know :)

some features to mention:

hold RMB in the battlescape to scroll.

you can use RMB to max things out in lists (ie buying/selling)

you can use RMB to open doors

you can enable/disable weapons during interceptions

left handedness and dual-wielding with pistols is properly represented

we have 12 different languages

soldiers save their loadouts between missions (you don't have to set everyone up each time)

the scroll wheel is integrated into the UI

Hehe, great, I hope you got the ball rolling and a lot of openxcom let's plays will follow. I also like how warboy in your game is actually a girl  ;D

Oh, and for the mis-clicks, you can enabled the path preview option?

This is looking great. Grats to all the devs, fantastic.

For my "Jan 1st, 1999" game, I had not decided which game to use, but OpenXcom has so many killer GUI enhancements now that this is the way to go. I just hope I can stay one step ahead of Warboy's "Destroyer of saves" during my game   ;D

Welcome to the squad, Luke :)

Anyways, that was intense! I almost died twice. Can't wait for Personal Armor!

I'll add you to the top of the list Luke - as everyone on the list is literally people from the credits of OXC; anyone who requests to join will come in front :) Next recording might be Boxing Day (26th Dec)

I can't wait for personal armour too! I've started researching the alien materials for exactly this purpose.
