  1. A bit late to the thread... ? are you still accepting requests?
  2. If you find bad video snaps you should definitely notify the community, so that we can work to make new replacements for them. It'd be nice if we had a better system for tracking bad videos but AFAIK you can only bring it up on the forums I suppose... I have no idea about Gamecube snaps, as I don't even have such console emulated. However, it sounds strange that all of them are bad and nobody has complained yet (unless it's a very recently uploaded set). Could there be a problem with the codecs in your own machine?

  4. Awesome! Please try to synchronize with the others so that we avoid duplicate work. You can post the list of games you're working on in the same thread as mine (link above) if you wish.
  5. Getting "all" the video snaps will be impossible, as there are currently more than 25k games documented, and we'll probably never even document them all if we also consider local productions in non-english countries. But of course you should hope to get all the video snaps of YOUR games! You can add your requests to this thread, but be prepared for long waiting times as there are already hundreds of requests* (also from other threads): If you make your own video snaps, you can also keep an eye on the list of those I am currently making, so that you avoid duplicate work: *I don't make video snaps on a first-come-first-served basis, otherwise I'd be still working on the first request list I ever got. Rather, I usually pick a bunch of titles from each list so that everyone gets at least a few requests fulfilled every now and then.
  6. I got stuck missing the videos for the gameplay of these 3... somehow I couldn't make these games start properly in my emulator :/ So I've decided to move on and start batch #3, but this time I'll make it only 64 games long instead of 100, so that you don't have to wait another year and a half before it's finished Asterix Artillery Duel (USA) Astro Chase (USA) Atomino (Europe) (Unl) Aztec (USA) Balloon Rescue (Europe) Bandits (USA) Bigtop Barney (Europe) Black Hawk (Europe) Black Tiger (Europe) Blackwyche (USA) Blip! - Video Classics (Europe) Bug Blaster (Europe) Centipede (USA) China Miner (Europe) Chomp!

  7. Thank you too! I am slow but steady The hardest work is actually in learning how to play some of the most complex or unforgiving games, in order to deliver a reasonable gameplay capture. You have no idea how many times I already tried to stay alive more than 30 seconds in "Hercules" and always failed

  11. I still have to questions before starting submissions: #1 - What to do with games/systems that don't have a 4:3 aspect ratio? Clearly the game video must have its own correct aspect ratio. But should we create video snaps that are always 640x480 (ratio 4:3) and just include some blank bands for example on top/bottom, OR should we create a video file that matches the game's original ratio? See attached screenshots as a reference, and tell me which one is the way to go (or something else!): option_1 > total size set to 640x480, some extra screen is captured above and below option_2 > total size set to 640x480, no extra screen captured, blank area fills option_3 > total size set to 640x400 (same as the original source) #2 - Are you absolutely sure you want CBR (constant bit rate 10000kbps)? I just tested it and 30 seconds of video snap are ~40Mb of file. If we set VBR (variable bit rate with MAX 10000kbps) it ends up less than 1Mb, quality not visibly affected.
  12. Ok! Great news then Are those video (CBS 10kbps) and audio bitrates (192bps) in your attached pictures the wanted ones? The video constant bit rate 10k will probably result in a very large file, something like ~40-45Mb for 30 seconds. I was aware of the need for separate title video and gameplay video, here I attached just a 10s sample to check if the quality and parameters were acceptable. No problem with doing also the titles. But if I can avoid the need for editing/mixing, it would certainly be a lot easier. Currently I am having some problems with emulators that don't use their entire window for the game screen, in which case some cropping is needed, but I am quite sure this should be possible within OBS. When I figure it out, I can start sending you actual snaps. [i can also write instructions for using OBS for our purposes, but it's so easy that I am not sure we need them] I am certainly happy to help... I need many missing video snaps for myself anyway, so why not sharing them? Just be warned that I will be slow, doing this task between work, family, studying...
  13. Of course something was wrong... It doesn't let me change the coders, it's always x264 (mp4) video and AAC or mp3 audio. That would be good for my own use, but doesn't meet emumovies requirements. bublbobl.mp4
  14. Well... just tried OBS and count me puzzled because at first sight it seemed to go like a breeze Everything seemed too good and too simple to be true (also considering that I know nearly nothing about video stuff), there must be something wrong somewhere... can I attach some sample file recorded with OBS here? It would be great if someone could check out if it fits with the submission requirements.
  15. I am looking forward to trying OBS (Open Broadcaster Software) for screen recording. Anyone has tried that before? Any reason why this should not be used?
