I realized the moment I fell into the fissure that the Book would not be destroyed as I had planned. It continued falling into that starry expanse, of which I had only a fleeting glimpse. I have tried to speculate where it might have landed, but I must admit that such conjecture is futile. Still, questions about whose hands might one day hold my Myst book are unsettling to me. I know my apprehensions might never be allayed, and so I close, realizing that perhaps the ending has not yet been written. -- Atrus

Ready, Set, Action!

In the previous post, I mentioned my desire to record the screen during gameplay.  I tried using CamStudio only to discover it is shite for recording games.  I browsed the internet for recommendations and found Mirillis Action and I acquired it.  I highly recommend it!!  I'm sure I am behind the times with this discovery, but for anyone else looking for a software that performs this excellently and hasn't discovered Action yet, then here is my recommendation to you.

local_character did in fact log on to play yesterday morning and he explored a great deal more of Eder Kemo and made even more progress in terms of finding all the Cloths and discovering that fireflies stick to you and can be transported to another Age.  Unfortunately for him, when he linked to Gira the fireflies stayed behind in a somewhat aura fashion right in front of the Linking Book.  That was really weird!  I will post more about his exploration later when he returns to Kemo/Gira.  This post is more about my experimentation with recording.

I also had the bright idea that I should record a video of me giving commentary, and stuff that in the corner of the recording of the game play.  The first trial didn't go so well because it recorded the game sounds, too, and you couldn't hear a word I was saying.  I will have to think some more about how I want to do that.  Perhaps record separately, after gameplay.

My first foray into game recording was with pellet dropping.  I figured that was routine and simple enough to use as an experiment.  So here is my video:

I'm still trying to figure out how to get that Action header off the video.  Any suggestions?  I ask this of my audience that doesn't exist haha!
