Reply with quote

Hi, Guys.

I have some free time the coming up weaks, so i had a great idea to make a Tutorial & SpeedTutorial Session.

What do i mean with this?

As you can see on youtube there are not much Video tutorials of Sof2 modding.
I searched for about a half hour and i found 1 tutorial about editing Ui files, 2 about weapon & character skin editing, and some image changes.
I needed to search hard and far away from the beginning to find them.
So i'll make Tutorials about MODDING Soldier Of Fortune Files, For Beginners & advanced Tutorials.

I'm able to do....

- ofcourse editing Image files.
- Menu Rebuilds & changes.
- a bit of Effects.
- ext_data ( Not hard to do, but good for people who want their own server with damage and clips etc... ).
- Chaning ingame Fonts
- Making New Models ( Objects, Weapons, Characters, etc... )
- Music & Sounds
- Textures

I'm not ready yet to make a Tutorial about changing Source Codes or making Server side Mods.
I'm still learning & Studying those methods & Scripts.
Maybe later i'll be able to make a Tutorial of this.

What's a SpeedTutorial?

For people who don't know what this is.
it will take ages to change all images and edit all files, i record everything so you can see what i'm doing with it.
But as it said it's speeded, so it's about 4x to 10x faster than normal, so the video will be shorter than it is.
Else i need to upload for about 1/2 days to get a 2/4 hours video about me changing image files or modifying ui files or something.

Sorry, if you confused by this bad grammar english, but it's all i can get.

Someone has comments, Suggestions, or have some tips?

Gr. Punisher.

I'm able to do video Tutorials & Tutorials to write.
I'll start doing Video Tutorials, because i'm working on a mod, and it's easier to do it in Tutorial Version than.

I'll start Tomorrow on, already and i'll keep it up to date.

btw i'm gonna do the following :

Part.1 - Extracting....
Part.2 - Images
     Speed.1 - Backdrop
     Speed.2 - Menu.
Part.3 - ui files
      Speed.1 - Ingame.About
      Speed.2 - Ingame.Character

etc... Etc...

Part = Tutorial ( Explanation how it works ).
Speed = Kind of a Walkthrough - Speeding it up, faster so it wont be hours of uploading and hours of watching.

Hey, Guys.

I've uploaded the first Video, just to look how the converting is going, what the quality of the video is and how long it takes to upload a 4/5 minute video.

This is the result of it:


[Watch On YouTube]


[ SKIP THE FIRST 20 Seconds, Because it's a message why i'm making it and for negative comments on it ]

Sorry that there is no voice comment but when i'm speaking english you can't hear what i'm saying ( So bad it is lol ).
I know the Punisher Doll Sucks and dissapeared after a few minutes but i didn't noticed it while cutting the video in pieces.

Give some comments and suggestions how to make it better.

Only problem i found out on Vimeo is that it max on Basic is 500MB, and the file i uploaded was almost 4 Min long and takes 12MB Already.
so if i take a longer video ( 12 Minutes ), it already has 187 MB.

Just in a few video's my storage is already empty ( Or almost empty. ).

I'll stick on Youtube for now and maybe i'll upload some MP4 Files toward a program.

Alright, i'll convert to WMV.

Anyways, i tried to make first ui file rebuild.
Didn't really worked out as a tutorial, because i lost my concentration after a few minutes and i started doing things that i dunno what i was doing.

After all i show some nice things.

Just cut all failes of the 45 minutes out of it, make some animations & explanations and it's done ;)

It's if i'm correct it's my 6th or 7th video ( 3/4 small tutorials and rest Speed Vids. ).
