  1. Boy howdy, I remember recording for this! Feels like back in the mists of time... Looks fantastic Goldwell. That intro is production value supreme right there!
  2. I didn't get the door conversation in my LP at first either. The one guy walked up to the guy at the door and said his first line, then got no response and walked off again. I believe it was because the guy at the door was on first alert (or whatever TDM calls it), as he settled down shortly afterwards. I replayed that part in my next video, being careful not to cause any alerts, and the convo worked then. It also worked the first time I played off-camera with an earlier version.
  3. Very nice! Happy to see that standing-around AI thing I've been grumbling about has been fixed. Also great to see the inventory grid.
  4. Fortunately I've heard some VAs I really admire say the same sort of things at times. "All I can hear are mistakes". So it's as you say, even for pros. That's what I like to hear! I was afraid I'd got through half of it already
  5. It's funny. I hear myself speak every single day, yet hearing myself Voice ActTM is slightly uncomfortable and weird, like how it is the first time you hear yourself recorded. Heheh. I've got other VA bits in missions coming out sooner or later as well.
  6. This is absolutely wonderful! It's just the kind of thing I've been wanting for years in either NewDark or TDM, and I can't thank you enough for going ahead and making it
  7. Welp, here's my first video. Goofed around too much and got into some trouble at first, but things are looking good so far.
  8. Here is my playthrough. I feel bad that I don't think I honored its atmosphere/mood enough. The teleport-to-black-and-looks-like-a-freeze thing sort of put me in the wrong place mentally, I think, so I ended up maybe not being quite in the immersed state of mind, I guess. Still it was a good story and a cool surreal little mission. I thought the main character was interesting too actually. Not your typical Garrett-type who just happily steals everything not tied down and doesn't care, but something a little different. Always neat to see. Incidentally, I didn't find the fourth ending.
  9. I keep trying to explain about focus, how my eyes may be looking somewhere else than your eyes, and how occupying one's brain with speech - and thinking about what to say next - can and does cause attention-split between the game and the talk, and blah blah blah, but nobody seems to ever acknowledge me. :\ Also you guys know where the arrow is beforehand and I don't. But that's how let's plays are. "let's playing" is not "playing". You watch a blind LP, you'll get moments like that. I think "argh, come on dude" all the time when I watch LPs, but I don't go into the comments and give the player
  10. Yeah, it's happened occasionally, but I was never able to reproduce it. Since I didn't/don't have any more information than just "it happens every once in a while", I figured a report wouldn't be much help.
  11. For those that don't find me annoying, I'm doing a play here: Otherwise, carry on
  12. I'd like to give back to you guys in some way if I can. An entire voice set sounds like a bit too much to chew though. Just because I can do a decent soundalike off-the-cuff during readables doesn't mean I can do grunts, screams and death noises, or even act for that matter
  13. I decided to try this myself, while also testing the effects of overclocking. My CPU is an i7 3770K and my drives are the following, from slowest to fastest: HDD: Western Digital Red 2 TB, 5400 RPM (WD20EFRX-68EUZN0) SSD: Intel X25-M G2 160 GB (SSDSA2M160G2GC) RAM disk: 4 GB DDR3-1600 using Dataram RAMDisk Lite I tested with Requiem and measured the time from clicking "Start Mission" until the "Press 'Attack' to start" screen. The results: 3770K, stock (fluctuated between 3.7 and 3.9 GHz while loading) HDD: ~1:42 SSD: ~1:25 RAM disk: ~1:23 3770K, OC'd to 4.4 GHz stead
  14. That's brilliant, I've been looking for something like this too. Thanks
  15. Did I have a rough start? I guess if by "rough" you mean "I suck at the game" then sure It's been a long and awkward road for me and The Dark Mod, but I'm finally starting to seriously enjoy it. And holy crap, my first TDM vid was in February 2012... I've come a long way from calling the non-pausing books "the worst feature ever implemented in any game ever" More relevantly, I'm really loving this mission. I guess I'm not that far through yet(?) but things keep getting more interesting the further I go, so I'm always looking forward to playing more!
  16. I think I see where I was going wrong before. I'll have to test my understanding in the next video though.
  17. And I thought that was just a throwaway line that wasn't very funny But seriously, thanks guys. I know I can't please everyone, there's going to people who like my style and those who don't. And I hope more people start recording TDM plays as well so there can be more styles for different tastes, and different perspectives on the game and so forth.
  18. I don't have the patience for betatesting. Playing a mission once and pointing out what I happen to see is one thing, but playing it over and over and being really thorough and all that, well, I'd rather just play it normally *shrug*
