CATALOG OF CONTENT AND A LIST OF WHO COLLECTED IT
PLEASE REFER TO THE CATALOG AND VOLUNTEER TO COLLECT SPECIFIC CONTENT
Collecting the screenshots and videos and demorecords by the community, as large a set we can, to preserve a lot of the city in media AND show non players why this effort exists.http://www.cohtitan.com/forum/index.php/topic,5387.msg55554.html#msg55554
Please see the link to learn why this is a big deal. The developers have a number of options, and a significant set of those who 'could help,' probably investors, may not understand.
This can be a web site to collect the bulk of screenshots, videos, and demorecords the community can make. In particular the site can host representations of why players are fighting, and content.
While we could want a whole screenshots directory of any pictures you have, the short term job is getting media to demonstrate why this is important to you. It should be a way to let investors and interested parties get a sense of the innovative or unique capabilities of the community or the game. Perhaps particularly interesting costumes or a costume contest or great content. Demonstrating assets is important so the best costumes, bases, or content should be included. Social events can help. Try to think like a new audience and impress the audience.
Another aspect of the project is a campaign to get demorecords of the majority of content in the entire game. The video would let a person obtain not just a chat log of the content at the wiki but actually watch it and if a script can be set up, participate. The format is versatile and potentially could make it possible to put an arbitrary hero in the content! However it requires a lot of people.
Media is actually easy in the game. You do not need a ton of video experience, just commands.
Taking screens requires only the print screen button, but do remember a few requirements. You should make use of the /screenshotui 1 or /screenshotui 0 commands to designate if the user interface is included with the screen. Try to use a screen type TGA in the options window to capture accurate screens, if you have a ton of drive space to accomodate a large format.
Demorecording is surprisingly easy if you know how to navigate to the install directory. If you type a small command, /demorecord x, you should find the x file in the 'client_demos' directory. However you should use a descriptive name so the videos are easy to navigate. Personally I use a scheme involving identification of the content... 'npcname-mission-character' is a good example. So special events can be 'defendersuperteam..' Then we can link a paragon wiki article to actual video of the subject.
To create videos use a program such as the popular Fraps. An expert could assist if you have trouble getting it. You would use this to add a motivational video to youtube.
