Default What is Drox Operative? (Video)

For those coming to this forum looking for answers, look no further! These videos give you a rough overview of what to expect. Of course not everything can be explained, it's a very deep game.

Very nice videos. BTW, did you mod the turn rate? It seems much faster than the default.

Nope, this is stock 904.

Interesting. What's your ships's speed in the video?

Depends on if you are referring to the first (SP vid) or second (MP vid). In the first, it's a stock, out of the box, Fringe ship. In the second it's a Drakk with 200 speed.

OK I was looking at the multiplayer video.

Looks like the turn rate is far too dependent on speed. I think turn rate should perhaps be constant, or it should be a separate stat (as I think eRaSer suggested).

Single player overview is great. Will help a lot of new players.

Yes, I liked it a lot. We were considering putting a button on th main menu which would take the player to a video tutorial. I tried to make a video tutorial with Fraps, but my voice sounded like a boring economics teacher which would certainly put everyone to sleep. But we know this is a pretty complicated game for first time players, and it takes a bit to get you head around it at first. So seeing a video like yours will be helpful for new players as well as enjoyable to watch. Thanks for taking the time to create it.

And if you want to create some more... please do!

As you might not know, I was asked by Arcen Games (the makers of AI:War, A Valley Without Wind and Tidalis) to make the official tutorial videos for AI:War (you can find them here).

Since then, I've improved both my "acting" and my technical equipment (real studio microphone, puff filter, proper soundcard, more advanced recording gear) so you could expect something of significantly better quality.

Those videos above are, tbh, rather "lazily" done. It's just a "hop into the game, record while playing without script". If I'd do a proper tutorial, I'd make a script and take my time to re-record and cut out parts that don't work (a lot of "err":s and "umm":s for instance) and similar.

If you need anything like that, send me a PM with your ideas.
