OpenWargaming: New Video Tutorial “Filming” Started

May 27th, 2010 at 08:55 am (CST) by Jeff

This is a cross post from the Open Wargaming System community forums:

I’ve started filming and editing a new video tutorial: Lizardmen vs Star Crusaders. I’ve completed turn 1 (recording and editing), and will work on turn 2 (and maybe 3) tonight with the intention to complete the editing of turn 2.

There are a few changes in how I’m recording: I’m recording using both the Nikon CoolPix’s microphone and using Voice Memos on my iPhone. I take both files and sync up the audio in my video editor (unfortunately still Vegas 4 as I’ve not the time to purchase or try another video editor for now). So far this makes the audio sound much better than the previous tutorial.

I may edit this list (as I’m running off memory and I’m not sure how many Lizardmen Warriors I had on the table), but here are the forces participate in the test tutorial:

Star Crusaders (864 points)

Lizardmen Force (853 points)

So far the test tutorial has been a blast, and although there are already a couple of mistakes & rules omissions that I’ve corrected or explained in on-screen text when necessary it’s so far a good example of cross-genre combat. This type of game is one of the biggest reasons that the Open Wargaming System was conceived.

OpenWargaming: New Video Tutorial Coming Soon!

May 26th, 2010 at 02:31 pm (CST) by Jeff

Well, the old Video Tutorial covering the basics of The Open Wargaming System are basically worthless, it’s time for a new video tutorial!

Since the system has changed just short of the fundamental level. I did learn a lot (filming*, editing and explaining) while doing it though, the next one will be a (slightly) smaller game and much easier to follow. Plus with the new mechanics the math will be easier and the flow will be quicker.

I’m impressed with the input that I’ve received locally to improve the system and I welcome input from the non-local community. Please feel free to register and voice your opinion and ideas.

I hope to have the filming* finished by this weekend, and the editing done as soon as the filming has completed.

*Yes, technically it’s not film :P
