Thanks to Drake for the awesome trailer:

Template loop detected: Template:Video

Having talked with Scathe and several other users, I am going to reboot the Let's Play project by LPing VII. The reason I chose VII, other than having it on Steam and being able to easily record it with Fraps or something, is that VII is a game I think we can all agree that we can talk about for ages and, while some like it more than others, we're all fans in some way. The reason I chose to LP the project? Well, college is over, I have never been in an LP and would love to be in one, and any excuse to play VII again is an excuse I will take.

And there you have it! I hope I can get this started as soon as my cruise starts and is over in a couple weeks time. Til it starts, I will record as much gameplay footage as I can.--Magicite-ffvi-ios Technobliterator TC 21:20, July 10, 2014 (UTC)

Process of recording

I think I will make a few changes to the process of LP recording.

Cloud storage

I'm going to start recording it. I will probably post the footage I record on Google Drive or Dropbox. This way, if I ever need to take a break from the LPing, the project does not have to stop. I can give it to someone else to host for a couple weeks.

Teams of LPers

The team selection shouldn't be random, and day selection shouldn't be fixed either. I plan on selecting teams based on how well the users blend together (hopefully we have no user in there who is silent most of the time) and on a certain point in the game. This is not a strict selection by any means. It's just to hopefully improve the overall quality.

Hangouts

I suggest using Google Hangouts. Why? This way, it avoids the hassle of using whatever was used before. A Google Hangout can be recorded as is. It also allows the people involved to view a YouTube video straight in the Hangout, and upload that Hangout straight to YouTube. It's very easy to join too. This might help things.

However, we might not have to, because of:

Twitch

Idea by Catuse167, see #Comments.

If no one opposes, we can use Twitch. We have a Twitch account for the wiki.

Polls

Normally I hate the use of polls for any wiki-related discussion. But I don't think they're too bad here. Mainly because, though they can be manipulated and don't represent actual opinions most of the time, this time it's simple public demand and I don't need any specifics. So;

Aeris name

Poll was: What should Aeris be named?

  • Aeris - 2 votes
  • Aerith - 5 votes
  • Slum Drunk - 6 votes

While Slum Drunk won, it did not fit. So she is named Aerith.

Third party member (Cloud and Tifa are 1 and 2)?
Who do you want as the third party member throughout?

9

5
 
8
 
17
 

The poll was created at 22:58 on July 11, 2014, and so far 42 people voted.
Don Corneo

Poll was: Who will Don Corneo take?

  • Cloud - 4
  • Tifa - 0*(u wot m8)
  • Aerith - 3

Cloud won by one vote. And Cloud was who Don Corneo took in the recording. I could use footage from another LP to show what would have happened if Corneo took someone else, however...

Red XIII

Poll was: What should Red XIII be named?

  • Red XIII - 6
  • Nanaki - 2

Red XIII won by a decently long way.

The date scene (I'm dating Tifa btw)

Poll was: Who is Cloud's enemy?

  • The EDK
  • The King
  • That Knight


The audio on a fight or two with the Turks is bugged. My idea was to replace the audio, but not with the music in-game, but with other music from the series. So, I'd like to ask you first for the immediate battle, and secondly for in future.

Poll was: For this particular battle, what music shall play during the Turks fight?

  • Battle on the Big Bridge from V
  • Steiner's Theme from IX
  • The Decisive Battle from VI
  • Just use the battle theme from VII's OST

VII OST won.

Poll was: In future Turks fights?

  • Use the VII OST
  • Use any of the tracks suggested above (or suggest your own)
  • Use any music from the FF series
  • Keep using the track that won the poll
  • Use any music from any videogame, regardless of being series or not

We basically decided on leaving as it was.

I hate minigames. Especially Chocobo ones. For many reasons. Anyway, I'm dreading Chocobo minigames as much as I am editing them. But I will do them if you want me to. So

Poll was: When getting a Gold Chocobo...

  • Raise Chocobos, do the minigame!
  • Fight the Weapon instead
  • Die to the Weapon and do minigame after like with Zolom

Chocobos were raised. Sigh.

Final Episodes Poll

Okay, this is important. For the final episodes I have two plans. This final episode involves splitting up the parties into 3 different teams of LPers and parties of FFVII characters. So the plans are:

  1. Use an FFVII mod for three different parties with different party leaders once the splitting screen comes on. This will be incredibly hard to do and take ages, and probably delay the LP by at least a month or two, however it could be interesting.
  2. Go through each area with the same party, and instead, the different LPer teams can be "three possible options of routes", like there are 3 possible routes in the game. The easier method.
Which of these should I use?

Skepticism

I'm skeptical about this idea. Sure, FFVII LP might be finished due to its popularity and maybe few others, but after some time when another project will pop up it will die in the middle, like the FFX one. The only reason I see doing the revival is making some kind of break between LP, month or two maybe, so it could calm down. Still, since I'm about at the end of the game, I might as well sign up, but that depends if I'll have time and opportunity.—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) ∙ 21:31, July 10, 2014 (UTC)

Don't worry about that. The way I'm doing it, any other user can easily take over from me using my footage at any point if they so wish. Also, Drake has his own "break LP" idea in mind, it should be alright.
I understand your skepticism. These are issues I've considered and I can hopefully avoid. :P--FFVI Kefka Palazzo Sprite iOS Technobliterator TC 21:34, July 10, 2014 (UTC)

Sorry Tidus357 :(

Godammit you stole my idea
I had Fraps downloaded and my FFVII Steam ready to go when I see this. Sigh. I'm glad you're doing it though. - BlitzballArtTidus357 12:38, July 12, 2014 (UTC)

Problem with twitch is that it's got a huge delay (typically a minute or so from my experience), so the commentators will still probably need a raw copy of footage recorded in advance. Other than that, I think it's a good idea.
Technobliterator

If Twitch's delay is a problem, you could always try hitbox.tv since the delay for that is considerably shorter (about 5 seconds usually).

Also, if commentators are going to be interacting with the chat throughout the recording, you might want to consider capturing the chat box and then editing that into the YouTube video, so that people watching later can see what questions and stuff you're all responding to. --Leon95 17:53, July 16, 2014 (UTC)

Streaming Question

Has the Google buy out been actually confirmed? I know that talks have been happening but Twitch's approach to the whole copyright thing has been so sloppy that it seems unlikely that this is Google's doing and I've seen people speculate that the new limits on saving videos appears to be a kneejerk response to a sudden change in circumstances in the amount of resources they were expecting to have - like, say, the sale falling through.

In any case we're (IIRC) still using the voice recording methods we used in previous LPs and keep raw videos around, allowing us to piece things back together in an emergency. We're fine.

This falls under the same legal circumstance as Rifftrax. We can't legally broadcast a full film we don't have distribution rights too, and "it's already on YouTube" is not a valid excuse.
