Hey guys,

I'm making a video playthrough series for X-Wing Alliance. If I'm not mistaken this will be the first video playthrough in full HD (1920x1080 resolution) and the wonderful XWA Upgrade Craft Pack.

I'll post each new video in this thread. Thanks for this great pack guys, you may refer to this project as my "thank you" :)

Very good initiative.

I would like to help and I think I can make to get higher quality video and be able to use dll D3D11 of jeremya:
1-Install K-Lite Codec Pack installation using "Lot of Stuff"
2-Install MSI Afterbuner + Riva tuner (included in the same package)
3-Use this settings:

-http://i58.tinypic.com/30da1z8.jpg
-http://i58.tinypic.com/1zph7qg.jpg

You can try other codecs and settings, i spent several days tryinng diferents combinations to get great high video quality in small size this was the best I could achieve.

You can also use only the Fraps program to record, but the size of videos is too big for me.

Thanks Ramshu! I'll give it a try.
Some questions first:

What do you mean by dll "D3D11 of jeremya"?

K-Lite Codec Pack - is this the one?

MSI Afterburner + Riva tuner, is this the one?

Lower your brightness in-game the textures look washed out, set it to the lowest setting the craft look much better

Thanks for the tip Darksaber! I'm shocked to see the massive difference for the better when the brightness is set to minimum. This tip should go to the installation readme unless it's already there and I missed it. Unfortunately, I already recorded up to mission 9 or so with the previous brightness setting, but from there on it will look great with minimum brightness.

K-Lite Codec Pack official's download I suggest use Mega version.
Your MSI Afterburner link is perfect.

jeremya is directly responsible for most of the XWA improvements has received lately, including a wonderful dll that makes the game use directx 11 instead of the outdated directx 6 originally.
But unfortunately when use this dll, at least I did not get to use shadowplay for record or stream video.

In http://www.xwaupgrade.com/downloads.php additional files section, you can found more information.

Really awesome videos.

BTW, you were wondering why sometimes the windows are black and sometimes they're transparent:
The transparent windows with the cockpit are only visible on the player craft, which is a higher detailed version than the NPC craft for performance reasons.

Thanks a lot for the kind words General Trageton, I really appreciate it. Feedback is my fuel to keep on working on this project.
About cockpit transparency - I see! That makes sense.

I absolutely hated that mission when I first started the game. Before I knew what happened those two Assault Shuttles blew me to bits.

Yeah! It surprised me that they chose such a dangerous oponent in the first Rebellion mission. Well, at least once you discover that your wingman is immortal in this mission you realize it's not that hard...
