Roguecraft, AKA McDohl is Fucking Insane
« on: July 04, 2012, 07:15:02 PM »

I've been working on this for the past month or so.

Roguecraft

The idea is relatively simple and easier said than done: Beat the Enderdragon on Hardcore Mode.

I'm on World 11 as of the latest episode.  Things aren't going well.

Also, I'm working on a "clip show"-style intro ditty, and I'm feeling pretty good about it.

New Roguecraft Intro Test run

Tell me what you think.

I can't really speak to the efficacy of an intro without seeing the contents of the show. It's... OK?

Why should I watch it on youtube when it's embedding just fine?

Roguecraft

Oh.
Well thanks for pointing that out.

I feel like some of the audio cues are subtly off, but it could just be that I have a poor sense of timing. You might want to allude to the goal of your campaign in the opening sequence a little more explicitly, choosing the most intimidating creature in the game is equally a symbol of your inability to survive and your stated goal of eventual murder.

I think the intro montage does a good job of that.  I might try to kill the enderdragon with the HUD off in a normal game.  The issue is that I have never found a stronghold, much less an End portal.  Anyone got a world save in such a state?

Roguecraft Intro Test Reel 2

I got a save game editing thing, gave myself a bunch of Ender eyes in a new save, and sought out an End Portal.  I got a perfect shot of the Ender Dragon flying straight at me.  I also trimmed down the intro to 13 seconds vice 22 seconds.

That is a perfect shot.

It's just... Maybe for the title still have your minecraft guy facing down the dragon with a wooden sword. Like, your ultimate goal is murdering that dragon. but the intro just shows you dying like a chump. So when I see the little man running away I don't infer that your ultimate goal is to slay this legendary beast. I infer that it's the ultimate expression of your inability to play minecraft. Instead of how murdering it is going to be the ultimate expression of your ability to play minecraft.

See?

I think the music cues are actually better this time also. Maybe the episode number should come in just a little later (maybe less than a second). It seems like it precedes the music's transition to the bassier sounds, when that transition seems like it should be the cue.

I infer that it's the ultimate expression of your inability to play minecraft.

I intend to update it...as soon as I can find a Nether Stronghold and not die trying to get blaze rods and netherrack from it.

and, if you've watched the videos, isn't it obvious I DON'T know how to play Minecraft?

Well, it's more that I make stupid decisions.

"Sure, I can totally go in to this cave with no armor and a wooden sword, and come out with my pockets full of iron and diamonds!"

Mostly, I'm halfway through and I've "seen" you die off-camera a lot. FROWNY FACE GOES HERE.

Oh, that doesn't happen anymore.  Not since I started recording mostly everything except for extremely boring shit like branch mining.

I'm telling you, test reel 2 has way better timing for the musical and visual cues.

After 22, the new intro will be used.  21 and 22 were in the can before I made Test Reel 2.

Just so you know, this is still a thing I'm doing.  I'm up to Episode 28, and 29 will be uploaded tonight.
