Speedrunning The Dream? b/c I can
« Topic Start: March 09, 2011, 09:51:37 PM »
As the topic says, I think The Dream still works. And since I will have nothing better to do this upcoming weekend, why not.

However, I have some technical questions before I begin. What recording program would you suggest? I usually use Camstudio but that's hardly any good for stuff with graphics, and I can't get it to record sound directly from my audiocard. If there are other programs out there for recording stuff like this, that are also free, and by free I mean legally free, then I am open to suggestions. The Dream's soundtrack isn't exactly something to write home about, but I figured if at all possible I could add it in. If not, then meh, each run should be done within 5-10 minutes anyway.

I like this a lot. :-)

Keep us posted. And if for some reason it doesn't work, let me know and I'll fix it.

I've never played the dream (didn't have a character on BT, fixed now :)), so I'd be interested in watching a recorded session :) with audio-commentary?

Also, though I haven't got any recording experience myself, I've heard good things about Fraps: http://www.fraps.com/

use audacity, it can record your sound cards output directly, just select it under recording device under preference.
As a musician i use it allot and find it very useful for various tasks.
You can save it as ogg or mp3, what ever suits you.
Audacity is easy and simple and has lots of handy features, above all, it's free.
The linux version has much more features btw.

It was a nice little game, and I'm fairly certain you can still play it even without a character on Bel.

Huh? Y'all actually wanted me to do it? Well, ok, if it still works... Mr. Tom, I'll need a...link to the working version because I don't have it installed anymore. And I'll get back to you guys come Christmas because that's when I'll actually have free time. I will probably need like three days or so to get my mechanics back, remember all the locations and the routes, and practice them. That, and I need to get a video capturing program.
