Ok, I officially have to resign on my SH2 run, at least the PC version. It's so buggy and crashy during the recording, that it's really a pain in the ass when things don't work as they should. After a few minutes of recording it goes out of sync and before each save I have to hope that the game doesn't crash. Also my pc seems to be unable to handle recording and playing during cutscenes because it crashes frequently and is out of sync almost all the time.
I'm sorry, but I can't finnish the run this way. I'll try to get it on ps2 and record it via dvd-recorder directly off the screen, but I'm not sure if I can get that version. Anyway, i'll try my best and post my progress here.
I just signed up :) my friend told me about this place some time ago and I love the idea of longplays. Anywho, cutting to the chase...
I have just finished my Silent Hill 2 longplay. The first have is executed rather well, contains extra documents and things worth noting to read. The 2nd have was a bit sloppy in places, however this didn't result in huge amounts of time being added on. Some mistakes were made deliberately to add tension and put you in the shoes of this guy James .
I am gonna be uploading this once the encoding is done :)
So .MP4 with H264 codec, AAC @ 64kbps stereo, around 640x480 with some cropping, 30fps. If any of that is wrong let me know because I am really pushing to upload this soon on my poop 288kb/s upload speed, and seeing as this is going to be DVD sized it will take a long time and I don't wanna screw up the encode.
Yeah that sounds good. For the audio though I might use a variable bitrate. I don't know what program you use but mine would be "variable bitrate (Q=0.1) But it doesnt matter really it would just help a lot with the file size is the movie was huuuge.
This is a game I feel requires a reasonable viewing quality due to most of the game being played in dark environments or in cases without the flashlight. The revised length of the file is going to be around just under 5 hours including all easter eggs, documents, cutscenes, exploringy bits etc. so I am hoping to submit a 1.5-1.9GB file.
