Capturing Game Videos

Capturing Game Videos

Howdy Descenters!

 

We've had some people ask about capturing Descent: Underground videos to share on YouTube, Facebook, etc.

 

This is really simple using free software called OBS, which you can get at OBSProject.com. Just download the "Studio" version (not "Classic") for your operating system. Just install using the default settings.

 

 
It's so simple, we'll show you how in under three minutes:

 

 

In case I was going too fast or you don't like tutorial videos, here are the steps:

  • Launch OBS Studio with administrator permissions if you're on Windows.
  • Launch Descent: Underground - you might need to flip windows back and forth from this point, especially on a single monitor computer.
  • Under "Scenes" click the + button and name the new scene whatever you want.
  • Under "Sources" click the + button and add a "Game Capture".
    • Try using "Capture any fullscreen application", but if that doesn't work, you can try the other options like "Capture specific window".
    • You may also have to click on the game (make it active) to see the game in your window.
    • If you need to, right click the game image in OBS, click "Transform", then "Fit to screen".
  • Click "Start Recording".
  • Play a match in Descent: Underground.
  • Click "Stop Recording".
  • Your video will be in the default directory (check Settings > Output > Recording for this location).
  • Edit the video if you want using Movie Maker, iMovie, or another application if you want.
  • Upload it to YouTube, Facebook, etc. (Twitter only allows very short videos up to 720p)

 

That's it!

 

Obviously, there's a lot more you can do. You can add a camera inset if you have a webcam. You can stream to Twitch, YouTube, and so forth. You can add titles and cool transitions while editing. Here are a few resources in case you want to go deeper into making videos:

 

Thank you so much for being awesome Descent: Underground supporters!

 

We look forward to seeing your videos!

 

Remember, we are running a contest over the next few weeks for highlight videos (10-45 seconds) shared on Facebook, so show us your coolest, funniest, weirdest, or most awesome D:U moments by tagging @Descent > Descent: Underground in your Facebook post!

 

Fly safe!

Microwerx started an interest conversation on game lighting that pulled in da Pix-man and well, it was pretty darn educational!

 

I learned some things at least. Maybe you folks are all super-geniuses or something...

Community Campfire - Influencer Hunting!

Posted by dunkelza , 01 August 2016 · 2,429 views

Community Campfire - Influencer Hunting!

Howdy Folks,

 

I just realized it's been awhile since our last Community Campfire. You might have noticed that we are coming out of a quiet time- this is normal. There is almost always a period of time in the middle of a game development cycle when a lot of the work isn't "sexy". It's about getting systems working, it's about implementing part of this feature and the second third of another feature. Then of course, there are those unexpected bits where the engine implodes and you spend most of a month fixing the lasers that have been working for a year...

 

The good news is that we are coming out of that quiet time. Just this past weekend, we released Survival mode- our first (mostly) complete stab at singleplayer and cooperative gameplay. Sure, we had Vs. Bots, and there's still plenty of polish (and voice acting) to add to Survival...

 

Here's the thing- this preliminary release of Survival marks a tipping point. It means that we are turning more of our attention to the "player vs. environment" experience (PVE). We've said all along that this was part of our plan and you're getting to see that plan take shape. For "player vs. player" (PVP) fans, we've still got more coming for you as well- like Corporate War (already in testing), Conquest mode, and of course our metagame! We also have a flight training mission in the works, it's already in Kaji's hands for beautification.

 

So here's where you come in: Now that we delivering the things we said we would back in the Kickstarter, we will be seeing some returning pilots, and a lot of new pilots. We need your help to make sure they have a great time.

 

We need you playing the game, helping out new players, keeping games going as much as you can- and still giving us feedback of course!

 

We also need you to keep an eye out for some Very Influential Players:

These folks will be receiving a copy of Descent: Underground today, courtesy of HTC Vive, and many of them will be playing the game! Please keep your eyes peeled for them in-game, and help them have a great time!

 

Also, we need your help to spot their videos and streams so we can share those with the world. Please post your sightings in this thread:
https://descendentst...rted-sightings/

 

Plus, if you're a subscriber to any of these great gamers and they don't make a video... we need you to give them a poke and ask why they haven't yet made a video about this awesome game Descent: Underground!

 

You folks are awesome, and we really appreciate your support and your help! Without you, we wouldn't be on this journey together. We've crested the Rockies along the Oregon Trail, we can see the Pacific, and none of us have died of dysentery yet!

 

Rock on!

 

-Dunk

 

P.S. - If you've been wanting to get a t-shirt but missed out on the last batch, we should have some good news for you soon!
