Is this how most folks play the thing? Now I never watch stuff like this and was actually rather random that I did.

But its extremely clear folks are missing a ton of keys and options. And tactics are extremely awful. Has anyone put together good vids? Or how too's for Sabow? Could certainly explain a couple things if this how a large number of folks try to fight a tank and fight the controls of the game.

Now I am thinking about maybe putting something together if someone has not done a good one.

For me it's using the tactical map to the point that it is useful. Especially employing and managing more than just my own tank. smile

Well I guess I know what I am doing next week. Any good game video capture programs that are free? And quality is useful? I have only done this once with free version of fraps. So was 30 seconds clips. Not doing that again.

What I will probably do is just play the bloody thing on Basra DLC and have mini mod running as well. Do a 2 for one . Promo and how too. See if its any good. Or ends up a rambling moron swearing up and down. Now I am scared.

I've watched loads of SABOW/GTOS videos recently.I really am trying to get to grips with both games especially GTOS.The amount of stuff to do I just find overwhelming.

I will lap up any tutorial videos at the moment so if you want to do some it would certainly be appreciated here yep

*edit* If you are uncomfortable with commentary you can always annotate it.

*edit2* The vast majority of these vids are dedicated to learning the interface and not about tactics so much.

Not video's, but the best commentaries on SABOW tactics/gameplay I know of are 33Lima's mission reports at Combatace.

If you have a newer video card FB both nVidia and AMD have their own video capture (nVidia has Shadow Play and AMD has Raptr I believe). Either should allow you to upload directly to You Tube and I think the FPS are way better then Fraps. Another program is Microsoft's Expressions software (I think it's free) have not used it in awhile but it's a little more involved then Shadow Play or Raptr. I think all of these allow at least 15 minutes or better video capture sessions.

Yes I bought a amd r390 not long ago. Try raptr i guess Which means I guess i need to let it update itself and stop crashing. Stupid thing.

I try and cover as much as I can while attempting not to get blown up I guess. Maybe it helps. Or I make a fool of myself.

I haven't really used this, but Open Broadcaster Software. It's meant for streaming, but I think it can record regular video, too.

May have to give this a go. The raptr thing will record, but with audio stuttering. Game seems fine, just the recording. since I think it is attempting to use vid card I am getting the feelings the game does not want to share resources. But then again, even the launching screen is doing it. Or something is just not playing nice with it.

Well got rapt sorted. No idea how. But its working. Made the 1st bit on set up. Did the battle as well. But did not turn down recording volume of game enough. So the only thing to hear is me chuckling over ordering my gunner to take aim at a HIND. TARGET TRUCK! So need to do another where you can actually hear me explain how to use sights and level gauge of M60 as well as why I used my troops the way I did.

Will have to show the crazy hind VS tank show down.

Any chance of uploading these to youtube? I can't view them via firefox and through chrome I can't hear your voice.
With youtube I can download them and pick my player.

Thanks for posting these.

Regards.

I have started too. But right now, to annoyed to finish up on this. Youtube is being uber annoying and now I have to give those guys my cell number for "verification" of large file sizes. Which I find annoying and creepy. ANd my cell is out of juice right now.


But I did set up a channel, Militant Triangle. So I guess these get there sooner or later. Right now only this test clip. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1NEg31VfcO8 BORING. And that vid audio is jacked up. One of the getting the bugs out vids.
