So the the Trials 2 bug bit me pretty hard almost 2 months ago when I first got the game.
I put in 20 odd hours and reached my goal of getting under 1K in the ranking.

A buddy and me started a team and trying to best each other was motivation enough for me,
but he kinda got over the game at about 40 hours (he started much before me and initially I was playing his game with him level for level it's an awesome 2P game)

Not having a buddy to play against kinda killed it for me and I hit a wall skill wise that I didn't see myself passing.

Jump forward to about a week ago when I finally got setup to run Fraps and record in game videos or in this case replays
(didn't change camera during replay in this my first vid something for next time)

I decided because my internet connection was down to finally beat the Final Exam faultless and I came pretty close!
I smashed my PB by 19 faults and almost 2 minutes not that it saved because I was in offline mode http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_razz.gif

The video is 6 minutes long (will aim for 3-5 as its a little long)
its 4 runs in order of faults not time

6 Faults
5 Faults
2 Faults
... Faults


I didn't put in any music because I have music playing always and it seems to **** people. I may put in some of my Trials 2 playlist in future videos.

So here it is my first fraps video on Wegame. What do you think?

May need a few mins to finish processing I am off to work.

I'll be brutally honest and say that that was pretty boring stuff. The problem is that from viewers point of view that was exactly as exciting as just scrolling down the records lists and viewing some random replays. It's great you're making progress and breaking old records always feels good, but stuff like this doesn't make very exciting video footage. http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_confused.gif

Cheers Xyz

Much appreciated I suppose trials videos for trials players need to be a bit different to the norm because as you say all that is accessible using the replays.

The replays only allow you to see one level at a time though so putting more than one level in a video at a time would be something that you cannot easily see in the replays.

I think I have an idea for something that might make more interesting viewing and probably wouldn't run over 90 seconds. I will knock one together this evening and put it up tomoz.

I have one question though if you save a replay of you racing a ghost does the ghost appear in the replay?

Thanks again Xyz


Next Video FFF - Medium

The ghost is only visible when you play, it doesn't show up on replays.

Thats a bit of a pain it will mean I will have to record live so I get the ghost footage oh well if I can pull it off it might look not to bad even in static view.

The ghost data is key for the FFF series http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_razz.gif
