Gah 2

The fabled art of 'let's play' is nigh tangible here. Got an LP you're just itching to share? Or maybe you just want to make snarky comments about someone's bad playing? That kind of thing goes here!

If you got like $40 lying around (pffff) Sony makes some sport earphones that sound good, don't make you deaf (protip -make sure either you can blow through them or they're not otherwise the type that creates a sealed chamber in your ear) and hang over your ears but are on a Y cord. Or at least, I've been using some micless phones I bought for $20 for like 3 years now that I really like. I'm assuming a mic would bump the price up like 20

EDIT: these pretty much but with a mic http://www.amazon.com/Sony-MDRAS200-Act ... headphones

Remember, when Iso posts his 20 minute video, it was taken from 17 weeks worth of footage. He took out all the boring parts, so you should give him an internet back-pat. People love those. Also, Boring parts are, like, the same spot where he just keeps wallking into a hole, so... a gentle back-pat time all subscribers would feel kinda cozy, me thinks.

Nah I got this. Admittedly I haven't played it for about a week, but I'm close to something. ...At least I hope so.

The real challenge will be figuring out what to do with the 10+ hours of footage I've got.

Record a co-commentary pod-cast talk-a-thon with jolpe or something and then just have the the background visuals be your endless death montage of Gah?
Or
LP something else and have the GAH footage play out in the corner of the screen?

Or just ignore the snarl of Gah 2 and find some other short game to play.

Give that a listen, then tell me how much you don't like it, change is bad, etc. (for real though, my old mics are crapping out and don't really work well on this comp and I'd rather not have to use my laptop to record audio for videos anymore)

Sounds pretty alright to me. It does sound like there may be a bit (not much, just enough to be noticeable) of background noise but it's been awhile since I watched one of your videos so I don't recall if that was something that occurred in the past or not.

You are probably hearing the fan from the computer, like you said it is super quiet I can barely hear it too. I think it sounds pretty good! definitely better then your old setup. It does sound a little "hollow" if that makes sense but I like it overall.

Also if this is hinting at the hiatus being over then I couldnt be more excited :bloodtrail:

Huh, that background noise is basically inaudible to me in the recording, though that might be due to me hearing the source constantly. I really have to crank up my volume to hear it at all.

Also after a little bit of audacity magic I ended up with this:



If that's fine I'm basically set for recording. It's too bad I don't have a way to achieve that quality live.

Youtube failed to notify me of the first video, but I got a notification for the second one 30 seconds after upload. I really think YT's systems are so weird, like they are just as unreliable as Twitch's notifications. I want to know when content I want to watch is uploaded damnit! lol

This has been one hell of a rollercoaster of a hack, so much time spent on it to culminate into this final moment. I have the most hope for you Iso you will beat this thing!

Congrats on making it to the midpoint!

Really a million times over; Don't beat yourself up over using tools to help you practice, it at least proves you have some semblance of sanity left because anyone else would have cracked ages ago on that.

Nicely done getting through that nonsense, Iso!

 Where was the fakeout footage from...? A previous death in this video? A death in the last video? 

I don't know that I'd extend the compliment to most of the doors as a whole, but some of these setpieces actually seem kind of neat (while being more like one-in-maybe-ten-or-twenty-or-so hard than one-in-a-hundred hard). That Kaizo gate where you wait on the falling platform? I assume it's probably a raovision-type effect at work, but Iso made that look legitimately doable. In fact, I wonder if, by limiting your choice of starting point, this version of the Kaizo gate makes it easier to figure out where to jump from?

As for door 4, repeatedly spin-bouncing on Bowser statues is clearly too tricky and/or finicky to call "pleasant," given the several deaths today (and others from earlier, I imagine) that involved falling slightly past the edge of the statue's hitbox (or getting ascending-glitched), but that bit where you have to lure the statue to the right before it jumps up in your face (placed after a couple spots where you're safe to wait and watch what nearby statues will do--including how high they jump) strikes me as an interesting and non-evil setpiece. Well, non-evil if you ignore the ceiling spikes, which are a bit rude.

The first half as a whole, with five consecutive doors... Juuuuust a bit long. I think Jolpe had the right idea cutting it down to four door choices (at least that's what it sounded like the update did, plus some tweaks of some kind). Iso made it past 7 and 8 at least two or three times in today's video.

It was from earlier in the video (ep 28) the first time he got to that room somewhere around the middle point of the video he was reminding himself of the timing and then muffed it up shortly after

Oh, poor Iso. Remember, Knuckles once hid stolen jewels in blue-sphere puzzle bonus game that was so hard Isocitration could not even beat it- but eventually, that barrier fell. You'll crack this nut eventually. Also, it would be smart to play a palette clenser game alongside harder games. Oddly enough, Mischief Makers would have been a perfect B side. It was gimmicky enough to have each level be stand-alone- keeping your puzzle muscles sharp, making a return to Gah much more tolerable.
