I was just very confused because I remembered hearing rumors about the Flash 9 for Linux beta, which is why 7 being the "latest" version surprised me.

Yes, the Flash 9 for Linux beta was announced here. 32-bit only though for now.


Thanks for the link. Once I get back to my desktop, I'll be sure to try it out.

Edit - Once I got it installed correctly (reading readmes help a lot), the trailer works perfectly. So, in case there's anyone else reading this off a Linux box, just get the flash player 9 beta and it'll work fine.

Direct link to the Adobe download page here.

We use fraps: http://www.fraps.com/. I tested gamecam, and an open source fraps-a-like, but performance was not on a par with fraps. Problem for me is I like to capture at high res, so I can play with cropping in the video edit. At that res, you end up being limited by hard-drive speed. We had bought a dual drive array specifically for capture, but it dies when we started using it Sad

Hey Fost! We were evaluating all that stuff too. SnagIt is another alternative. And was the first that we could achieve good highres results with. But with a trick: we slowed down the gametime to 1/5 and let SnagIt take a picture every 1/5 second. This was a little nasty because you couldn't really play while capturing but at the end you had high quality image sequences what is still the best for editing I think. Messing around with any type of video was bloodcurdling in AfterFX or Premiere.
Finally this lead us to a inhouse solution: now we have a hotkey in the engine that enables capturing. This mode locks the gametime to 25fps. The images are jpgs and are written to a new folder.

Thanks! It's a really cool day today - we started Moonpod on my birthday, so it's Moonpod's 4 year birthday, and we can also celebrate entering beta too!


Re: vid capturing - on gunmetal, we had full recording of game controls, so you could record a game session, then play it back dumping out frames as it went. It actually took as long as it wanted to render each frame - so the videos were completely smooth even when the game framerate dropped Smile

Are there any steps that need to be taken if one's board email is several revisions behind the current customer email or is that of little consequence? i found the email amidst several hundred spam messages.

Yeah I got my mail too (I sometimes go a couple days to check it - its usually spam anyway). However I'm not sure yet if I can participate. I worry about the computer I have (Even if I can assume the computer that ran Starscape well will run Robot well) - its been promising to die on me but it won't.

In a few weeks I might have a better hand-me down computer though, we'll see.

Are we allowed to know what this 'sploit is? I know there's a thing called an NDA and all, but I won't tell. Honest Smile

Really, I just want to know if it's a ghost-hack related exploit. If it is, I have a whole head full of "You hacked the hacking robots!" puns just ready and waiting Razz

Nice trailer! The game is looking really great and I am very excited about the release. The level of polish on the graphics is simply stunning!
