    I do enjoy the mod, but I must ask .. could we get some config options to allow/disallow items?

    posted a message on A Guide to Making Quality Let's Plays: V1.5
    I'd also recommend Bandicam be added to the list of capture/encoders. Pretty much all the power of FRAPS with a bunch of extra and damn useful options - the main one being able to encode with different codecs. The default is a MPG standard which is fairly small and of high quality, but you can also use Motion JPEG which is a huge boon to us using Sony Vegas or another more high-end video editor.

    It can also create multiple audio streams, for voice and for game, so you have the ability to mute any sniffs or coughs you make, lower the game sound when needed, etc.

    Comes with a download/trial (which has a watermark and 10 minute limit, annoying I know) .. but it's only $40 for the full version.

    Whilst I wouldn't recommend it, you *can* just capture and upload to YT if you wish.

    Highly worthy app, really helped me with my caps.

    posted a message on 1.9 DRAGON BORN CHALLENGE - *REAL* ULTIMATE SURVIVAL
    I have been *loving* this seed. I've been looking for an excuse to start a Let's Play series, and thought I'd give this one a go, and do it in Hardcore Mode. If you got a bit of time, do check out my channel and see how I've been handling it. Up to episode 10 now, and I'm still surprised I survived the initial madness. Here's the first episode ..


    Now that I've conquered the initial problems, I plan to continue on battling away till I reach The End. Well, that or die trying heh.

    I've also been looking around for similar challenges, but nothing beats this seed so far. Might give one of the SkyBlock maps a shot next though.

    posted a message on Lock at 60 FPS
    Quote from Granado_jake

    Hello....is anyone theeeeerrrrrreeee...

    Almost .. just woke up. (Australian time)

    Controlling FPS is mystic art in itself, and within Java doubly so. I've been making videos of late, so can spot my FPS using the little overlay my app provides. I've been playing around with trying to get to cap myself, but it just doesn't seem possible to my attempts.

    If I put the game into full screen (1920x1200) and record, it generally sits around at 60 though (with dips to the 40ish range) .. so if it's an issue for you, perhaps that's an option. If you don't want to actually post up videos, just delete them.

    If you use something like FRAPS though, you're going to fill your HD with movies VERY QUICKLY as they are recorded with no compression. I use Bandicam, and that atleast compresses them down to mpg standard (and a few other codecs) so they're not *that* insane. About half an hour worth of video is compressed down to 5G when I use motion JPEG - would be a little less than that if you use the standard mpeg compression.

    I know it's not a big help .. but like running on multiple cores .. Minecraft/Java seems a little limited with how we can manage it.

    G'luck.

    edit1: Think I need to wait till I continue posting here, looks like I've ran out of posting privs till I'm authorised or something.

    edit2: Ooooh, herro .. OptiFine has been updated for 1.0.0 and it includes all sorts of nifty improvements, including VSYNC options .. check out http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/249637-100-optifine-hd-a-fps-boost-hd-textures/ for more :smile.gif:

    edit3: Okay, I've installed it and played around with OptiFine .. and I'm rather happy to report back that I'm getting a consistant 60FPS when it's locked to VSYNC :biggrin.gif: So get in there and enjoy!

    edit4: Sorry for the continual edits, can't make any more posts at the moment. OptiFine is designed to increase FPS, yes. It also includes a VSYNC option that helps lock the FPS to your monitor's refresh rate. I'm currently playing MC with a 99% lock on 60FPS. Just make sure this option is set, and see how you go.

    posted a message on MINECON IN AUSTRALIA
    I'd love MineCon to hit Australia .. being an Australian helps me think this way heh .. but no, I doubt it as such.

    Firstly because of our population .. rather unsure we could field enough people for a con, although, it is possible. But there's much higher density of players in other locations.

    But mostly, because we're just so damn far away from the rest of the world. Flights from international locations to here are REALLY long. Longer than Europe to the US, and they're bad enough as it is.

    As wonderful as we could do it, and trust me, we know how to throw a party .. I don't see it happening.

    *wistful sigh*

    Who knows, maybe we can have a multiple location Con one day .. with special rooms set up with video teleconferencing that covers a wall ..
