For the watermarks would it still count by adding a gameanyone.com youtube Annotation on already uploaded videos?   part of my current project is already encoded and uploaded without a watermark,  i have now found out how to add them in virtualdub i will be adding watermarks  to all future videos.

You can count that towards your already made videos, but on new videos we like to have gameanyone.com physically on the video, that way it is there whenever someone watches it on any website - or if they download it. Your guides are all great - if you end up joining the Game Anyone Crew then I will backup all your current videos aswell.

Yeah i am doing another of my alltime favourites atm, Return to Castle Wolfenstien with all secret areas, i  had already encoded the first 6 levels before i saw this post and even gave watermarking a thought, i am just doing a few with a watermark to see they are ok.

I have backed up alot of my videos on DVDR as well as on my Hard Drives but you are welcome to back up as well :)

Good luck to everyone and i really hope i can make the team :D.

Post by: Volvagia on August 21, 2008, 12:49:41 PM
I'm putting DonAraska up for Director if he wants it.
He is elligeable for it as he has over 200+ Videos and Way more than 3 karma, his work is brilliant and has practically no screw ups in it.

If he sees this, please respond as I think it is a good idea you become a Director.

Okay, how do I watermark my videos using Camtasia Studio? Because I have no idea. I'm new in these newcore editing softwares (not recording but editing; I had someone else to edit them; even had an intro! woo) :|


Title: Re: Game Anyone Directors
Post by: Maceman on September 09, 2008, 04:55:09 AM
We know how to do it for WMM and Vegas. For Camtasia you can either use Virtual Dub or figure out if it has a text media feature inside of Camtasia Studio. You can post in the editing software forum for more help.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure I PM'ed you already. I'm making a Sonic adventure 2 walkthrough. It says Gameanyone on the bottom of each video. I'm pretty sure I qualify. So.... am I in?

You need at least 50 videos on the site with the watermark first.  :o

ok. Shouldn't be much of a challenge after I finish my Sonic adventure 2 and Sonic heroes walkthroughs.

Cor blimey; that'd be easy for me. I can get a new game out like every week *Rolls eyes*
Only problem i'd have would be the watermarking. Everytime i try; the quality drops from 200fps to 25. And that looks like rubbish =/

200fps to 25fps? All of YouTube's videos are 25 FPS I believe, if not even less than that. A human can only see about 14fps, yet we can notice a difference when the fps is higher and shown side-by-side with a lower fps video. But because youtube converts all videos to 25 fps anyways, you should render your videos at 25-30 fps. FPS has nothing to do with the quality of the video, that is unless the video is interleaved.

Depending on which editing software you use, we may be able to help you preserve the quality. I watermark all of my videos and they come out great quality.

Title: Re: Game Anyone Directors
Post by: Yoshiller on November 27, 2008, 03:34:58 AM
Sonic adventure 2 walkthroug is 28 videos, and it has the gameanyone logo on it. (and is finished)
Sonic Unleashed will be around 50 videos, and it has the gameanyone logo on it
My Animal crossing city folk walkthrough has been added here, but it doesn't have the logo on it.

I was sent by Virgil Dante to come ask about this, And I have a few questions concerning some of your rules. NOW I post vids up just about everyday save the weekeds (Unless Iam on break) so thats not much of a problem, the issue I have is the requirement that I have to have stuff done in four months. Is that a have to? I mean feel free to look for youself at my channel (I wont post it here but message me first, and ill gladly show you) That The games I do a long enough, but to say they have to be done in four months with the amount of work I produce in general is a bit harsh

The 4 month mark is to scare off "1 timers" and people who start lots of walkthroughs but never finish them. If you become a director and you are constantly using the site by posting on the forums, making new videos, and joining in on events, then don't worry about not making the 4 month mark. We just don't want people to become a director and then disappear. As long as you hang around and let us know that you still are doing stuff, then you can have 40 months.  :D

You're missing 19 videos. And even then, you must have another walkthrough planner or in progress when you hit that 100 mark so we know you will continue making videos, this title is only awarded to those that can keep it up.

I forgot it was 50, my bad. Mace will probably post here later telling you if you qualifiy or not, you do technically, it just depends I guess. We're looking for directors though.

Yep. My bad Yoshiller.
There should be a post made that were currently accepting directors on the frontpage, to make it seem more like a "job" than anything.

You can, but it works better using just gameanyone.com as it's easier to read when it's small.

I hope a title at the begining of a video saying "www.gameanyone.com the #1 place for video game walkthroughs" counts as a watermark lol.

Post by: skorch82 on January 22, 2009, 11:48:34 PM
The director application is now live.
http://www.gameanyone.com/?p=dirApply

Each applicant must have 50+ watermarked videos, at least 500 credits, and 3+ karma.

The application will simply ask you for a short explanation why you think you would make a great director.

If you qualify, head there and apply now. The GameAnyone Team will evaluate your application and let you know!

If you are denied, you will be given the reason(s) why and a chance for reapplication. Half of the application fee will be refunded to you upon denial.


Title: Re: Game Anyone Directors

Didn´t found any information about this on the site, so I ask it here ;)

For now that is is, but perhaps we will come up with some sort of 'lottery' or something, so credits will be easier to come by.

Credits are supposed to be hard to earn. It gives more value to them.

This is how you can get alot of credits:
Browse the requests forum and look for requests which were made by members who post alot on the forum. These members are more likely to offer alot of credits for their requests. I for one have started a request for 1000 credits, which I think Rolandrd is working on. Recording walkthroughs of requested games, combined with posting on the forum, allows you to build up your bankroll fairly fast.

Of course we are always looking for ways to improve the system though.

If you intend to apply you have to be exclusive to this site and no where else, means no advertising your own site or anything those are the standards for being a director.

Actually, as long as he advertises us along with his own site, it counts as a watermark. Users are allowed to advertise there own websites, as long as they advertise us alongside of them, e.g: two watermarks on the videos.

That was a different director system altogether. You just needed 250 videos or more on the site and you automatically became a director. Now it is much more sophisticated.

I think its fair enough to give directors the chance to watermark or name their websites or theyr nicknames inside the videos for gameanyone b/c they made the videos. As long as I produce walkers for the site, I will always add my nickname and a presented by ga line to my videos.


Title: Re: Game Anyone Directors
Post by: skorch82 on April 06, 2009, 06:51:24 AM
Using your name and using your website are totally different things.

Putting another website on the video may redirect potential traffic from this site, even if you put it up there alongside it.

We are about exclusivity, which makes our directors all that much more qualified to be in such a position.

Our directors deliver superb product, unique videos, and contribute to this site on a level above others.

Title: Re: Game Anyone Directors
Post by: MarioDragon on April 09, 2009, 03:24:46 AM
You know, if people put two watermarks on a video, this site and their own site, I hardly see at all how it would take traffic away.

First, they would either go to one of the two sites, and probably both. If the video is advertising them, some people think they must be worth visiting.

Second, if they're already on THIS website, and they like it, they won't even bother going to the other website advertised. If they like the second website better because of the way it looks or is organized or whatever, well that's their decision.

Third, they made the video.. And if they own their own website, and they want to become a director, that rule is going to cause you to lose directors, and site traffic.


I go with the two watermark rule, as long as the watermark's on the video, you're going to get more site traffic than if the watermark wasn't on the video.

The director program is a way to build up our own content that other sites don't have. I have plans for something that will make everyone want to make exclusive (not even on youtube) videos for GameAnyone. This plan will take a while to get rolling though. I also have plans for more "freelancer" benefits, aka for people who own their own website. The freelancer benefits, however, will never be quite as good as the director benefits. But, again, we are waiting on a few things.

Is it possible to add a youtube annotation on my old vids and make it a watermark ? or the watermark must be added when you render the video ?

Thanks. :)

Title: Re: Game Anyone Directors
Post by: chilean_retrogamer on May 15, 2009, 07:25:57 PM
actually I was thinking of that for my future projects....the watermark is not hard to make so I can do both the watermark and audiomark on my future vids. I had asked the watermark thing for my old videos, but of course I'll be adding them from now on.

The candidates are notified by the admins with a brief statement of why they did not get in or why they got in, depending of course on the voting procedure. so we do give reasons just not public ones.

They need to contain the watermark, but if you've already uploaded them don't bother re uploading them as it is a waste of time, so no the rules aren't able to be bent here.

1. Does your videos HAVE to  be rendered in 1280x720 HD?? Because My PC can't handle HD rendering, and I don't feel like paying 500$ on one that can.

2. How do I get Voted by a current team of directors??

One, yes HD is the new quality preference we want for directors, also it shouldn't be that false HD, it has to be true HD, 1280 by 720

Two, you submit a request for becoming a director and we go through voting, if your not voted in we give you a reason why, if you are, we welcome you in.

OK! thanks for letting me know, I guess I should get ready to start rendering in HD. I just need to figure out a way that my pc can handle, or get a new one! anyways, that is all I needed to know.

Directorship does not expire, but If you pass and become a director you will be expected to continue producing your videos with all the gameanyone critierea, you will become a normal user again if you stop watermarking, become an hole ect ect, it is all about teamwork and if you forget this you get demoted (this has happend in the past)

Also, I have uploaded my vids thus far with 1280 x 720 in mind (batching with Camtasia studio 6 and what-not), but I don't think it is true HD, just Youtube's version, it that ok or should I try to get true?

to one
if you want to become a director you need to watermark all your videos before you sign in. You need at last 50 watermarked videos.

to two
As far as I know do you only need to make the video 1280x720 with a moderate bitrate to fullify the requierment.

At last a note by myself: It depends mostly on your quality of video (gameplay, is it a addidion to the site, enjoyablility)


Title: Re: Game Anyone Directors
Post by: SonicBoom92 on June 22, 2009, 09:05:33 AM
kool, thanks

Another question though, I know a lot of people don't like a commentary in a LP or walkthrough but there are also a lot of people that do, so I am recording the game with a commentary and uploading it to Youtube. After that I remove the commentary audio bit so it is just gameplay with audio from the game. So on my Youtube page, there are two playlists . . . LP Infinite Undiscovery, and LP IU w/ commentary.

My question is, should I add the watermark to just one set, or both? Like would it be cheating or something to put the watermark in both the commentary and non-commentary version of episodes 1-whatever number because is really is the exact video files uploaded twice with only a few dialoge lines removed? Or is it just all thing go?


Title: Re: Game Anyone Directors
Post by: REMBER on June 22, 2009, 09:15:54 AM
That depends if you want to become a director. If so you need to add watermarks from the start, if not you don't need hd videos and you to watermark your videos and you don't need ti lvl up.

If you mean update on here, you can't do that till you become a director, you make sure to post updates within the normal limits for non contributors, if not, then you should only post completed guides, as we like to get things done around here, since our main host is youtube due to them supporting HD as well as every other quality on here.

We are looking for originality plus true HD, not youtube HD, sorry it needs to be made in HD, then rendered in HD depending on the program you use, see our help and tutorial forums for more information.

You dont record games capable of widescreen in widescreen. The black bars on the sides are ugly in most cases of newer games.

the frame size used to render should be appropriate with the game being recorded.
If it supports widescreen, it should be in widescreen.

If the images look bad when stretched (some SNES and NES games mostly) then it should be kept at 4:3.

You could always check for yourself. I don't have any experience with them but I remember playing GBC games on my GBA SP and you could stretch the image by pressing L or R. Sometimes it looked okay, other times Link looked fat lol

Yep, we will. Although the benefits of directorship would be nice, i suppose i can settle with my meagar 3% credit discount and .3 credits per word in a post blah blah blah lol. But i got at least 20-25 games that i can record, so i got alot of stuff to do in the future, and some of those games have co-op, and i plan on doing single and co-op for most of the games that allow it  :-*

That doesnt make any sense. YouTube converts it to 1280x720 anyways. Any video that is 'HD' on youtube is an HD resolution with a 2000kbps bitrate.

Yeah. 1080i may be HD quality anywhere else... but YT only accepts (or displays) up to 1280x720

What we mean is not having the fake borders on a game that is designed for widescreen. All that is doing is upscaling a 4:3 image and passing YT's shitty requirements for 'HD'.

You just have a 4:3 display stretched to 16:9 and calling that HD.

so when I record if I switch it to 16:9 and break it and stretch it then you guys will accept it as HD

To be quite honest, only the more newer generations (PS2+) can be truly HD'd,

For example, one of my 'HD' vids from older systems http://www.gameanyone.com/video/144670

So yeah, you can only do so much with older games.

on 360 PS3 Wii PC and other you have to record a 16:9 aspect ratio and then what you should do is open vegas and break that ratio and render in HD 1280 x 720p or something else like 1920x1080

You need 50 videos that are watermarked to even be considered, so unless you already have 15 videos, you still need 50 because it shows that you have no current videos. Karma is easily obtained, as long as you post good and dont pick fights/start arguments with everyone. Also, they prefer true HD, not YT HD, thats why i cannot be one. Takes my comp too long to render/upload for true HD. But in the future i may be interested in HD whenever i get my new computer, so i may re-apply within the next few months  :)

I used gameanyone.com com because it has less letters, therefore it is shorter and takes up less space on the framing, helping it to not be a distraction to the people viewing the video.

You dont have any recorded games that are on HD capable systems, so they are not TRUE HD. Also, you might want to make sure you have more than one or two walkthroughs before applying, or your chances might not be very high.

Recording from the actual DS, no. But with the help of emulation you can achieve a resolution greater than HD resolutions, just not widescreen... tall screen instead. Here is what it looks like: http://www.gameanyone.com/video/134563

I know that! Right now I'm uploading another flash game in HD WATERMARKED and in 21 vids. Now, if they accept the 3 walktroughs I posted yesterday, that will be 35 alltogether. And if I add my other Watermarked HD games, that woud be 42 vids. Now, I just need to upload a game that will consist of 8 videos and that's 50. I'm just asking to make sure that the HD issue is allright. Sorry if I sounded a little rude here.  :-\

Were you watching the Facade HD videos or the flash game videos? Because if you were watching the Facade walktrough, the HD there is pretty bad because it was my first attempt. The flash ones are 1280x720.

I'm using Camtasia Studio to record my flash games. And I set it to 1280x720. As for facade, I may just find a game that has 12 vids and it'll still be 50. (In other words, I won't count Facade). Or is the problem in something else? (Can't understand what exactly is the problem because I'm Croatian.)

I am really working hard to do a lot of walkthroughs, and also I've started recording in true HD, so if one of the crue just wanted to check my Harry Potter 3 Let's Play on my youtube account, I am almost done recording the whole game and will be in about 5-6 hours long and contains about 24 or more videos.

Also I have recorded my Let's Play Harry Potter 3 for the GBA system, and the lets play got about 32 videos, I am now rendering a lot of the videos, and I should soon have them all ready to upload, and they are also in true HD.

What we look for is TRUE HD, not just standard "YT" HD which looks blurry as shit.
However, the gamecube doesn't have HD components nor does it support HD... but it'd definitely look better from a Huppage than a Dazzle.

Also, I don't think you should be taking advice off of anyone who isn't a director. Anyone who isn't a director and is applying and isn't a director yet, you shouldn't take advice off them in case they make mistakes and do not become a director. Do research, or ask the directors at the moment for help, don't ask people who aren't a director.

Only if you capture games that can do true HD, otherwise it's not considered HD, so as you were told before do not listen to anyone who is a non director, as they do not know what to do for HD, as most of the time it ends up being Youtube HD.

Let's see how the PSP videos look in HD, right now your video doesn't look acceptable for a director status, it's HQ for a start, not HD, and it's very blurry and pixelated when in HQ.

No you need to render it IN HD before you re-upload your videos, and just because it has "HQ" at the side of your video doesn't mean its HQ, HQ doesn't look blurry nor pixilated, the same thing will definitely go with HD, it cant look like that if you wanna be accepted in directors land. I know i'm no director to be saying all that but, all of this is common sense and not rocket science, so its easy to explain as long as you can read lol

Skorch has an excellent HD guide which is what I use if you are using sony vegas.

You need to upload walktroughs. The videos must be HD and have Gameanyone.com watermark. When you have 50 of those, you completed the first requirement. (NOTE: Only the videos in the guide are counted as videos. Those you post on the forum are not) Next, you must have at least 250 credits. You can earn them by posting stuff on the forums. And finally-karma. You need to have 3+ karma in order to apply. (I just posted all of the requirements because I had no idea witch one you knew and witch one you didn't). I hope this is th answer to your question. (If the question was: "What do I need to submit?", because I coudn't quite understand what you wrote in your post above.)

Yes you need to upload walkthroughs in order to apply, they have to be captured in 1280 by 720 HD, we will not accept anything less for game anyone directors anymore. you would need to continue making videos in that format otherwise we would remove the director position.

you do commentary, and your videos, regardless of the fact they don't have hd, are better than a lot of the applicants that we get simply because you provide more entertainment due to commentary. you'll be fine.

To remain a director, you must:

   1. Be active on the forums.
   2. Add a new walkthrough or update an existing walkthrough at least once every few months.
   3. Watermark or audiomark each of your new videos with GameAnyone.com.
   4. If you do not add commentary, HD rendering is required to remain.

Yes you do it's part of the requirement.

So I have to add walkthrough if I'm planning to do so.

You first have to watermark/Audiomark with gameanyone.com on it, then apply if your accepted per our rules, having good commentary or TRUE HD, either one works, but if your not accepted you are put into our apprentice usergroup in which you have to show us your capable of becoming a director after a set period of walkthroughs, but a good amount is required, not just a few.


Title: Re: Game Anyone Directors
Post by: Darius320 on September 13, 2009, 06:35:17 PM
Okay, thanks , but how many to add? At least five to ten?

As many as it takes to get the required amount, but i'd say go for the max to show the improvements.

You need at least 8 walkthroughs I think (that's how many DonArska has, and he is just lvl 1.)

That's how many he applyed with, so it's best to have as many as you can watermarked,  but the preferered watermarked amount of games is about 8-10 before we even think about allowing you a chance to apply.

Post by: acantophis3rd on September 13, 2009, 08:16:50 PM
I had only 3 completely watermarked ones, but the admins told me its enough to hit the apply button. It depends on how good your stuff is, aswell.


Title: Re: Game Anyone Directors
Post by: skorch82 on September 14, 2009, 05:58:14 AM
It's different for everyone. the more the better, but yes... it depends on what you bring to the table. Those doing commentary tend to say more with less, and is only natural. Those without typically need more to show.

I guess here is the obvious place to ask this.

At my current standing, I have 6 walkthroughs, about to finish off a 7th.

I think 3/7, when I finish it, will be HD. 

My question is how many more walkthroughs should I do before I apply for directorship/apprenticeship?  I would be fine with an apprentice, because the main reason I want it, is so my videos get displayed on the front page.  I have a whole lineup of games to do that aren't on this site.  I think all of the walkthroughs I've added so far are new additions to the site as well.

Thanks for reading.  Please respond!


Title: Re: Game Anyone Directors

The only guaranteed way of getting featured, unless you happen to do a brand new game that was not even released EG: halo 3 ODST

Featured walkthroughs usually happen for directors/apprentices, but can also happen for normal users if we either have a slow day, or something really unique is done that isn't very easy to find. We dont have a systematic approach to it, but that's kinda how it works.

I got a question about one of the requirements. Right now I am in the process of trying to get 50 new videos up with watermarks and I am also rendering in 720p HD from using Sony Vegas. Although, I use the gamebridge and that doesn't really exactly records in HD quality. So does the videos I render in HD count as True 720p HD?

Yes, but you can use Sony Vegas to make video in 720p video fomat by rendering it.

The answer is no, it's not TRUE HD as it has to be recorded in HD, what you'd be submitting is fake HD plain and simple.

I dont understand it. You want to be a director so badly and you didnt contributed any long game in the last 3 months. I only see three 1 video long flashgames (a flashgame isnt a game in my oppinion). Why?
Start to finish complete guides. I added 5 longer games before I have hit the submit button for becoming a director. If you want to become a one, then start moving, work hard and complete more games. What are you waiting for?

We are not here to judge anybody. Someone that is really interested in becoming one of the famous GA directors takes his time and waits until he has some good lets plays or walkthroughs added to the site. There is no need to hurry. The best example is Yoshiller. I really like him because he applied already several times and added more complete games than anyone else. His only problem is that he is very young and he dont has the money yet to buy better equipment and to fulfill the HD requierment that the site wants from its applicants. He does not give up and II never read him complaining about it. But all I read from BM is an endless complaining.

Well, the requierments are thought, but not impossible to match. Everyone with much deliberation and a bit talent can become a official if he wants.

Yeah. I thought in starting some long walkthroughs. I just added flash game because I didnt do that much on the last months. I'm doing Far Cry 2. The bad thing is I'm not abble to do commentaries because I can't express myself. I'm not bad at english. There's more people that can't say a shit. It's good for a kid like me. I've to buy all kinds of stuff to do walkthroughs. Now I only can do PC one's. I'm doing hard work to get money for Gamebridge. It's a big responsability. I'm in school, doing 10th grade and I've to work for money. So it's not easy. I've a social life that doesnt helps, but at the same time I want to be big. That's all.

One thing I've noticed is that you jump around from game to game and you never finish any of them. You need to stick to one game at a time and quit dropping the projects once you start.

I decided recently I will some day get a huappuage HD PVR, which means I will have "True HD" Once I have that, I will upload 1 guide in true HD, and then I will summit my next app. I have been holding credits for that app. I have improved on almost every dimension: video quality, unique guides, watermarking, organization/content, uploading speed, and even trying out commentary for a few guides. True HD is the missing piece of the puzzle. Once I get that in, I will finally summit my next app.

Will will probably get my HD PVR by Christmas.

my current one couldnt produce what i wanted to do and my videos werent good enough to be a director.
luckily commentary has helped me, but i'm hoping after my re4 walkthrough with my new computer and
better settings, along with hd will gain favor in their eyes

Yeah well it probably will be a big guide. Just about all of the games I do are very long, and all of the games I have planned are pretty long. 

I have actually decided to first finish up all of the games I have on my list. Then I will do the Ratchet and Clank series & the Jak and Dexter Series. By then I shold be a level 5 apprentice. THEN I will get my HD PVR. I guess I will do 2 or 3 guides for the PS3 in True HD before I summit that app. I guess Ill do God of War 3, the next Gen RAC, and maybe a few other PS3 games I have planned in True HD once I get the hauppuage.

the only thing is i know quality is very huge with the head hanchos..... if you watch the guys who are on their like skorch
and overlord have incredible quality, the only way to kinda get around it is to have good commentary


Title: Re: Game Anyone Directors
Post by: JoeSchulz on November 04, 2009, 12:29:37 PM
All of you recent responses have got me interested.  I've never done a really long game, but I am right now.  Age of Mythoolgy.  While not really along game, it takes hours to finish.  And I'm doing my best to have good Quality, and I try to get commentary, but it's pretty hard when there's not much to talk about.

So my plans for becoming a Director/Apprentice, is to Level up a bit.  To 5 or so.  Become a valued member of the Forums.  And Get on the good side of the directors, lol.  So far so good.  I've been incredibly active on the forums lately.

But as for my walkthorughs.  Unfortunately, I'm stuck with computer games, and even then there are some probelms, like when I can record.  Because the better PC I can use (not mine), is the family computer, and is almost always occupied.  So until I can get my hands on my own better PC, and/or equipment, I can't really amount to much on the Quality, and Variety of my walkthroughs.

And I'm stuck that way until I can find a job.  Which is pretty hard to do.  And even though, Minimum Wage is what I can expect.


So I'll probably end up applying by New Years.  And make it my resolution to become a Director.  I could have tried a few times to apply, but I'm not going to waste my credits on a low chance.  So I use them in the Request Games.  On Games I want, of course, but at least it is contributing to the site.  The more credits I add, the more likely it is to be done.  And the more likely it is to be done, then I'm contributing to the person completing it.  My credits are then going to that person, who can use them on other game requests. 

But, if I want even better chances, I should start donating to the site.  Which I can't do until I get my Paypal set up, and even then, I won't do that until I find a job, because it involves going to the bank, which isn't really necessary ATM.

So, there ya go.  Those are my thoughts, and my solutions.  Though I started to Ramble a bit.  That happens to me quite easily, ;D

Your almost always on the forums - good thing. If I had to choose, you would be a director.

Well being a director means you are a great walkthrougher.....not that you are on the forums alot. they only score you on that for 1 section and that is the forum contribution. I believe I got a 3.85/5 the last time.

the only thing is i know quality is very huge with the head hanchos..... if you watch the guys who are on their like skorch
and overlord have incredible quality, the only way to kinda get around it is to have good commentary

Yes it is either you have True HD or Great Commentary. Some people like you said try to get around that by doing great commentary. I noticed you were doing that. I also noticed the Redclock did that, he didn't have great quality, but awesome commentary. I on the other do not have great commentary. I already tried it out on a walkthrough all ready.....So I decided I will get True HD quality by getting a Hauppauge HD PVR.  My quality is already great-all I need now in True HD quality.

I have a quick question.  I can't do True HD due to PC specs and upload times nor do I feel I want to put commentary on all video.  I can however put the GameAnyone logo on all videos (throught video) and can upload around 20 - 30 videos a week.  Can I still apply as a Director or should I simply not even bother?

You can apply if you do commentary, considering we have a few users who do HQ but commentary only such as redklok, just make sure they are entertaining and be natural in your commentary, don't try to be someone else.

I'll try for this in the future:)

continue man, im still working my way up... my quality is improving and my commentary is going a lot better
keep it up and working at it, takes time

I have a question:
I eventually want to apply for director, but I play low res games like GBA and NES so it's impossible for me to produce "True HD" videos. Although I render them in HD and the quality is great.
Does "Fake HD"(Non-HD footage rendered at 720p) qualify if you don't play HD games?


And  I don't do commentary, I did commentary on 1 game and it ended up sucking. So that requirement is out of the question.

Well, if you watched DavetheUsher's videos, you'd know the answer is yes.
Even though he does commentary, the answer is yes simply because the Commentary never used to be a possible requirement. Dave's been a director for about a year and a half now, so yes, we do accept Old games rendered in 1280x720 at a high bitrate, given the quality is good and the sound is intact, along with the framerate not being sketchy.

Commentary takes a very very long time to get used to, it's all about practice and getting used to it I suppose.

As a tip: try thinking out loud. Don't try to talk about meaningless stuff. Think out loud about solutions to puzzles, things that may happen, strategies you might use etc.

I don't think your entitled to give advice for people applying, your not a director nor do you qualifiy to be one.
Your advice is half right, depends what you actually think about in your head though, we've had people whom have became very odd and disturbing to be around due to your theory.

Exactly. That's what i did with Kirby 64 and am now doing with NSMBWii.

Plus, in my opinion, if you get angry, feel free to express your anger. Like "this is one of my most hated levels". I dunno but people usually like seeing people get frustrated.

Both are right. What I did as I began doing commentary was to speak from the characters point of view. Its like playing a character in a real-life role playing game. I tried to figure out what the character would think and say while experience the situation by his own. It works for me.

For each new video you submit you're supporting the site by offering it content and allowing it more opportunities to grow. I don't know too many people that work for free, and that's fine and all. The site speaks for itself and gives back. What bugs me is the watermark/audiomark business. I personally find that stuff annoying as a viewer and I think it clutters the walkthroughs. Just my 2 cents.

Well it is the only way to really become a popular contributor of the site, because it's true we do work for free, however this is only just a hobby, till of course we get some serious funding then who knows where that will take us.

you must audiomark each video in the beginning for gameanyone.com. Do not mention other sites, including youtube. It must be Gameanyone, and only gameanyone.

I've got a Youtube Account with over 700 videos and I'm fairly confident in my commentary abilities.

We only count videos that are added to this site (full and complete guides), so bear that in mind before you apply. You must have at least 50 watermarked videos that are added to this site, meaning in-progress guides or YT annotations will not be considered.

With Credit Cards, those 3 numbers they ask for are the CVV code.  If you do not have a CVV code, then contact your carrier and request for one.

I don't use credit card.  I find myself much safer and easier, just linking paypal to my bank-account through online banking.  It takes longer to transfer money, but it's 100% free.

No I think you have to place a watermark through the whole vid, and ofcourse on every single video of the walkthrough

No you do not, SSoHPKC does a watermark at the beginning of his videos and it counts, but it can be either at the end or the beginning of the video, so it's preferred usually to have it running through the entire video, but in some cases the beginning or end with the watermark is acceptable and not the site logo either, it has to be your own watermark not something created by others.

Future videos have to have the watermark in order for it to count, when you reach 50 Watermarked videos, and have the necessary amount of credits to apply then apply, but only when 50 WATERMARKED videos have been acheived or you could use audiomarking for your videos

But I can still become Director with the youtube HD, because I will only record psp games right now, but I might get a Hauppauge later so I can record console games.

OK then. Looks like my future videos will have to be much shorter in length than they have been - 50 videos, for me at least, will be quite a task.

Ok... I've started my video climb. I have..1/50. I will probably do 5 games of 10 videos each to qualify myself, especially as I have 11 walkthroughs on here already. I have embossed and audiomarked this first one... I won't upload anything until all 50 are finished.

I think the only thing that screws me up in this is the 1000 credits thing. Im on Europe, so it meens that the money has another value than the dollar, and I'm 12, wath doesn't benefit me aswell.


BTW, does an image in both intro and ending of the vids cont as a watermark??

Well we do appreciate continutity when it comes to walkthroughs, so doing something like that, but remember it has to be 50 videos ON THE SITE, this site, not youtube.

What Vergil means with that is that.. non-complete let's plays will not be accepted to the site. So go record some games, when complete add the playlist to GA to get it accepted and added. That plan of recording 5x10videos won't cut it.

Ahh, maybe I posted a bit too quickly. If I can record and finish 5 games, with a minimum of 10 videos for each game, I will be on track.

Also, Vergil, I know quite well that I will be uploading playlists here. I will just be waiting untill all 50 are done before uploading them to this website.

Actually uploading to the site is not your ability.  But a mod ability.  Unless you are a Director, your walkthrough won't be uploaded until it's done, and even then, it can be rejected under certain circumstances..  But the add-walkthrough option, helps everyone keep track of the progress, as well as inform  others that the game is being done.

Just so you know you can't personally upload to the site, and you can't get a walkthrough added until completion ;)

Alright... I can see a lot of things are being misunderstood here...

Quote from: VergilDante100
No you do not, SSoHPKC does a watermark at the beginning of his videos and it counts, but it can be either at the end or the beginning of the video, so it's preferred usually to have it running through the entire video, but in some cases the beginning or end with the watermark is acceptable and not the site logo either, it has to be your own watermark not something created by others.

He has an audiomark, as well as an image. If you do not audiomark, the watermark must be present for the whole video. Gamerbomb was correct.

But I can still become Director with the youtube HD, because I will only record psp games right now, but I might get a Hauppauge later so I can record console games.

You need to exhibit the best quality possible, with whatever you are recording.

Again, you mis-understand me! Read, please, before answering.

You can submit your playlist anytime you wish. What has failed to be conveyed simply is that WE will not add them to your channel until they are finished.
When a walkthrough is submitted, a moderator/admin will review the guide for completion, then the videos will be added to the site. All you have to do is submit, and keep an update every 14 days for each in-progress guide.
Once you get your 50 watermarked videos added to the site, you will be eligible.
Let it be known though, that we are looking for people who have several games and the best quality in their uploads. Almost nobody is taken with just the minimum requirement.

Well, in a program like Sony Vegas, you can insert text and put it at any corner of the screen you want. Just be sure to ajust the size of the text and make it easy to see. As for audiomarks, if you do commentary, be sure to mention that your walkthrough will also be available on gameanyone.com on every video.

Featured guides on the front page are systematically chosen by the admins. Just doing a walkthrough doesn't guarantee it's appearance on the front page.

As for the audiomark, we'd prefer it be your voice, but as long as you can understand it (and you have NO other choice), you can use a synthesized voice.

Watermarking can be done with movie maker, but its kinda gaudy (unattractive), so i'd advise using virtualdub to do that, get sony vegas, or look up a tutorial for how to do it with WMM and deal with it.

Audio Marks count, Annotations do not.
Annotations don't show up on our player, simply because people can use them for mass advertisment if they so wished.

Watermark the entire track of the video using a decent editing program, such as Sony Vegas.

Post by: Armand_Capello on January 28, 2010, 04:29:35 AM
Since it fits here most, I will ask to make sure before doing it, it is accepted.

When I make my playthroughs of gba/gbc/etc. games. (Easy pc recordings pretty much. Until I can get better equipment, harddrive, etc...)

If I put an image in the front of the video (same image about 10-20 seconds say, every video of course.) and have myself, clearly, saying something along the lines of "This is brought to you by GameAnyone.com by the user Armand." (Probably be a small video I put in front of every gameplay video I make. Would that be considered far to lazy? Since I'd be 'reusing' it. Though it would be edited into the front of every video.

Every playthrough video I make in the future will have commentary. I currently don't have the house to myself and been real busy so I can't record commentary yet (and my mic broke but the digital camera audio idea I read somewhere here works. Though that also means more editing which means longer to go up.) so any gameplay videos I have isn't finished. So I got time to either just do the audiomark instead or do the image+audiomark in front.

I ask if that qualifies as lazy or not even qualifies fully (which I read someone here did that, which ironically why I came to this post today.) as I am curious if it is considered lazy would my playthroughs pretty much be exed out for that pure reason? I ask if it qualifies being like an extended part of the beginning. I think it is a bit bad that I can't start commenting right away on the video as it ends up already starting if it was stopped in a bit of an odd spot. If it was like an action spot or something. Same token then I'd have like an intro to it.

My main playthrough gonna work on is Onimusha Tactics Advance but also probably going to do the pokemon games (maybe all of them. maybe 100% pokemon) just because its a childhood thing. xD So won't be HD, I don't even have an HD tv. But I do plan to comment through every video. Probably what will take the longest to upload videos is I wanna do commentary.But it'll be recorded straight from VBA(the uh recorder one. Forget the special letters or tag that goes with it since there is so many VBAs :P)


Anyways. Just curious. Also what's the apprenticeship thing? You say one that failed director but not bad enough to be rejected fully? What's the difference of normal member and apprentice?


Title: Re: Game Anyone Directors
Post by: skorch82 on January 28, 2010, 07:30:45 AM
apprentice users are generally featured more often and get higher credit discounts when they level up.

The audiomark/image in the beginning of the video is fine, as long as you are speaking. if it's image only, then it needs to be present on the whole video.


Title: Re: Game Anyone Directors
Post by: Armand_Capello on January 28, 2010, 12:12:39 PM
Thank you. Will probably be quite awhile before I finish my playthroughs but will be adding the gameanyone.com to the beginning from now on instead of just audiomark. I definitely will be speaking in the beginning. Just wasn't sure if because it was an image it'd be considered 'not part of the video' even though it would be edited into it like a beginning intro or something. Wanted to ask since I didn't wanna put it on every video I make to find out it wouldn't work that way. Especially since I have will be pushing high levels of videos in my playthroughs. lol

Post by: SuperTimtendo on February 07, 2010, 01:30:45 PM
OK, I have a question. Some of my playthroughs/walkthroughs contain commentary but some don't. Also, I do not render my videos in HD. So if I was to apply for a director would I still be accepted? Or would I only be able to put up my commentary walkthroughs/playthroughs and not my non-commentated ones?

Also, I have begun a No More Heroes and Excitebike: World Challenge Playthrough/Walkthrough. I understand I need 50 videos which are watermarked so can I watermark them walkthroughs now like from Part 3 and it would be OK?

EDIT: I can now upload HD videos and will re-upload my No More Heroes and Excitebike: World Challenge walkthroughs/playthroughs as HD. I'm also going to be audiomarking my videos. Just to be sure though. Does it just need to be a few seconds at the beginning of every part saying "Brought to you by GameAnyone.com"?

Are [HD] quality videos a must to become a director?

Quoted from the director page:

Quote from: Directorship Application
You must render in 720p True HD -OR- have decent commentary on your videos. We do evaluate both extensively.

Judging from that, if you don't provide commentary you must render in HD. If you do, you still need good quality but HD isn't required.


Title: Re: Game Anyone Directors
Post by: skorch82 on February 08, 2010, 03:53:56 AM
let it be known that the best quality will be sought, commentary or no, but since many of our commentary-providing contributors do not render in HD, we had to level out the playing field.

The 50 is a minimum... but it also means that every video you make since you start watermarking should be watermarked.

You just ask why you did not get apprentice with your last sign in? You did not get enough percent inside the voting to be an apprentice. Your video quality is not what it should be. Looks like you need to work much harder to get enough percent next time. Even JoeySchulz became an applicant and you should know that he is not very famous because of his forum posts.

So, I've been looking around quite a bit, and do forgive me if it has been asked, but I can't seem to find it. By audiomark, are you talking about an introduction that mentions GameAnyone.com, or are you talking about an inaudible mark used for copyright purposes? If neither of these, what is the exact definition for an audiomark considered to be at GameAnyone.com?

Thank you in advance for your feedback.

Well, I use to render videos in MP4 format to get good quality, but it did not. I render videos in AVI format compressed by Divx to get good quality, and then I got clear screen quality. That way you might not be thinking I got low HD quality.

If anybody here has played No More Heroes on the Wii then you'll know about that voice at the beginning of every boss batltle saying the name of who you are going to be assassinating. Well, I've created a voice JUST like that using a software called Fruit Loop and was wondering if that voice saying "Brought to you by GameAnyone.com" with the logo on screen passes as a audiomark for a director?


Title: Re: Game Anyone Directors

I for one never really want to see the logo of the site ANYWHERE on the video. And, I HATE synthized audiomarks. This just might be just me, but I'm just giving you advice when it comes to when I have to vote on your application if you apply.

Try using your own voice for it, and just place it at the start of the audio track aligned with the start of the video, there is no need for an intro video. It's just a time waste.

Creativity is a must with director applications, in my opinion.

I plan on applying again soon, because my first director application was turned down.  I believe I've improved a whole lot, considering I've added a good 7-8 more walkthroughs, and I plan on re-doing my old walkthroughs to be in HD.  As soon as my DDR X walkthrough is done uploading, I plan to wait for it to be added to GA, and then I will apply.

Do you think I will make directorship, and if not, at least apprenticeship?  I hope so.

There are many factors that go into becoming a director, not just the content you provide.
You'd have to apply to be evaluated, no one can say in or out without having the application being sent through, each of the Directors level 2 and above vote on you, not just a set selection of higher ups.

Alright.  At my current moment, I have done 12 walkthroughs in HD, and are watermarked.  I plan on re-doing, or reuploading the walkthroughs that aren't.  I also plan on adding a game with at least 50 videos, all in HD and watermarked, as well as another 20~ video walkthrough HD and watermarked.  Hopefully, that'll help me to become at least an apprentice.

Quick question: I only started doing commentary.  Working on a better mic.  I don't plan on doing a ton of commentary, so how will the commentated videos be weighted with the un-commentated videos (most)?


Title: Re: Game Anyone Directors

we prefer commentary on our walkthroughs, but the fact that you have some that are eligible that have commentary on them, that may not be so good (or maybe they are...) could hurt you. However, the bulk of the points are not awarded in the commentary department, so it wont affect you that much.

Ok, good, I will try and be better with commentary in the future.  Could I be a director with not a whole lot of commentated walkthroughs?  I know that if I don't commentate, I must have in HD.  I try to be unique on the site, especially with my walkthroughs, because most of my walkthroughs except one or two of them are all unique and new to the site. Not only that, but I tend to do a lot of walkthroughs in short amounts of time.  So I can quickly get walkthroughs on the site. :) Hopefully that helps in my judging a little bit.

Anything you say here has no bearing on the application. That's what your app statement is for.
Commentary is not required, but it's what we prefer. It won't affect you direly one way or the other.
Cranking out quantities of walkthroughs doesn't necessarily make it any better for you than taking the time to do longer ones.
Good, consistent quality, with keen attention to site demands (requests, popular titles missing, etc.) is what we like to have.

Ok, good, I will try and be better with commentary in the future.  Could I be a director with not a whole lot of commentated walkthroughs?  I know that if I don't commentate, I must have in HD.  I try to be unique on the site, especially with my walkthroughs, because most of my walkthroughs except one or two of them are all unique and new to the site. Not only that, but I tend to do a lot of walkthroughs in short amounts of time.  So I can quickly get walkthroughs on the site. :) Hopefully that helps in my judging a little bit.

I'm going to state this before you get confused with quality and what is "HD"

Rendering in HD doesn't count, anyone can do it, you have to actually be recording in High Definition for us to actually count the guide, visually, to the naked eye, it is clear what was recorded in SD and what was recorded in HD.

I haven't looked at your work since your last application personally, nor do I have the time to right now, but if you're using a Dazzle, it isn't 720p. The Wii itself can't produce 720p, this is true, but, you'll have to use the 480p image and stretch it to a 720p image.

A dazzle however records in 480i not 480p, which isn't what we're looking for in quality. And if it isn't true 720p or at least "the best that can be possibly done." it is logically not accepted for the ballet, or at least, I always pay attention tot his rule, others may not, but it should be mandatory that they do.

For example, if I see a majority of the videos being captured (especially the latest ones.) with a Standard Definition device such as a Dazzle without any commentary, I automatically rate the video it's lowest, or close to, the lowest possible grading. People who apply with this do not read the rules through correctly.

Manage your content and be more specific, there is a difference between TRUE 720p/Best You Can Do 720p and FAKE HD. And fake HD, unless supplied with CONSTANT GOOD COMMENTARY is not accepted for director applications and will be voted poorly on. We have these rules for a reason, directorship is all about talent and being the best of the best, this is why the list is so small.

Originality (style, editing and commentary) go a long way in applications for Directorship, as well as that of video quality (Formats, playback, clarity, wither or not it's true HD) have the biggest impact on the application.

I believe he uses a Hauppauge. However, most of this is moot for his guides since most of them are Wii, which is not an HD capable system.

Skorch is correct.  I currently use an HD PVR with my recordings.  I do exactly what you say, record in 480p, and stretch to 720p.  Now, my oldest walkthroughs, I didn't have a HD PVR, so I will re-do those, recording with my PVR.  But my current walkthroughs, I've used emulators and component cables and recorded at 720p or higher.  With my PS2 walkthrough (DDR), I have recorded with composite at 720x480, since the PS2 isn't an HD system either.  But that was stretched to 1080x720 and rendered in 720p HD.  I'm attempting to record a game off my X360 with component, so it will be true HD.  But, I'm having problems with the Arcsoft software.  Anyways, because the Wii isn't HD capable, I can't get my quality any higher, right?

Anything you say here has no bearing on the application. That's what your app statement is for.
Commentary is not required, but it's what we prefer. It won't affect you direly one way or the other.
Cranking out quantities of walkthroughs doesn't necessarily make it any better for you than taking the time to do longer ones.
Good, consistent quality, with keen attention to site demands (requests, popular titles missing, etc.) is what we like to have.
Oh, I know this isn't my application.  I'm just asking directors' opinions before and if I apply right now.  I can try and get a hold of some new releases and do those.  I'm starting to do longer walkthroughs, I just got some shorter ones out of the way, because it was easy.  I hope I'm keeping consistent quality, as I've been recording in true HD and rendering in HD for a while now.

Oh, and by the way, I really appreciate the feedback.

When recording PSP games its kind of hard to get HD quality since its not a supported native resolution. Do I have to add commentary to them then? to meet the game anyone directors rules
Are you recording with Remotejoy + Fraps, or using a capture card with cables? You can only use Remotejoy if you have custom firmware on your PSP. If you are recording like that with Fraps, you can get a close resolution. So, you can just stretch it a bit for 1280x720 HD without losing that much quality. If your recording with a capture card, does it come out like this? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1DtDEJ4-wcE (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1DtDEJ4-wcE). If so, even with adding commentary, the screen is a bit small and hard to see.

 I'm currently using a capture card to record Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep. Since the game doesn't work right now with custom firmware. I would recommend to record in 480p with the PSP component cables, and then stretch it out in Sony Vegas. This is how my output comes: http://www.gameanyone.com/video/199599 (http://www.gameanyone.com/video/199599)

Im recording with a Hauppauge HD PVR at the moment. Works fairly good I think, but I will definitely look in to this Remotejoy thing. I did this walkthrough (http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=E0FD1F2EB4CEF226) yesterday, hopefully the quality is sufficient. Youtube adds some black borders which weren't there when I did the rendering.

That's what I tried to do to get a clear screen quality to make it look good without a blur that I have on my videos. I record PSP in 480p or 360p which is consider a normal quality or high. I'll stick with 480p while recording these PSP games to make the quality better and not with 360p because it ain't gonna help make it good. Afterwards, I use Sony Vegas to make all 480p videos to 720p video. I would make it in 1080p, but it may take lot of time to render it. I can stick with 720p HD format to render a little and after that I got clear and smooth quality. It's what I do. I hope I can make it great enough for me to become a director.

You have to be active in the forums and provide interesting and helpful posts, this is one of the criteria that are reviewed when you apply for directorship by Staff and Directors, along with many other factors.

No, I think my last discount (I still have a level, regardless of being a mod.) was 25%? At level 4... now at level 5 it's 28%. It only increases a few % each level, even then there will be a limit to it, it won't reach 100%.

No. This would be impossible due to directors being on different time zones from each other.

Any director above the level of 2 can vote on an applicant, it appears in our Requests section (the same place friend requests do.) and it's just a form we fill in from there based on what we see and know.

Be patient, from what you just said, you're just trying to figure out how long is left, you really need to learn to be patient, this procedure takes days as we wait on the directors voting.

I have a question: Is your level reset after becoming a director?
For instance if you were level 3 and became a director, would your level reset back to 1 due to it being tougher for directors to level?

I'm aware that the benefits of a director are probably better than any level of a non-director, I just wanted to know.

Why is it so hard for you to increase your video quality? Okay.. console games.. my bad if you record them straight from the console itself. But tomb raider for example, pc version, the quality should be perfect.

   I am currently looking into anything that may be improved in my LPs.
I'm recording and rendering in True-HD (tribute to Skorch82s video tutorial), fixed my commentary(low mic sound).
If times permit, then I'm able to churn out 15 vids a day(not kidding on that one), all watermarked and full HD.
Current project is Dragon Age: Origins, with all DLC's and current expansion Awakening, since the site is lacking one of those, due to Skorchs unfortunate trouble with that perticular LP.

   I've also got in my possession, a couple of Original games not on this site. (Loki: Heroes of Mythology, Black And White 1and 2 (Haven't played nr1 it on win7 yet)) too name a few.
I have been slow this week on updating, but my attention was elsewhere. But soon i will be back up to speed.
If i die in a game, i will mostly leave 1 death in it. More than that gets cut out ofc. 
I also record in batches, 2-3h at times, a large Hard Drive and an ability to let the comp run at night gives me the ability of a large production:D

   My preference is PC only, that includes emulators.
Forum contribution is normal. I post in threads that catch my eye, and i never troll (unless it's a thread made for it :D).
Being a former forum Mod has given me a bad habit of not posting in every thread. So i am mostly just creeping around, only adding stuff that may be of use (unless it's a forum game :P).
I do keep up with the forum with all my might.

   So if anyone could give me their honest opinion on anything that may be improved, then i am all ears.
I am not that keen on applying to Directorship with a halfassed application, and bad material to back me up.
That is why i have assaulted your eyes with this post.
Aww yeah.

Well, I'll guess I can try to answer this. After all, I have applied several times.

When you apply for director, there will be a little box that you'll have to type in. If gives you a set amount of letters that you are allowed to type. You need to type anything you want, as long as its about why Gameanyone should accept you as a director. Once you're done typing, you'll click a little button, the application will be sent and the amount of credits needed will be subtracted from your current amount.

No. Hour-long or not, you still need to meet the 50 video requirement.
Even if you can upload longer videos, this isn't fair to those who can't, who end up splitting up those 30-60 minute segments into individual watermarked videos.

Don't act as if splitting it up takes up that much more time.
I think he actually has a fair point, to those who can post longer videos 50 videos can be a whole lot more than others.

On the other hand of course there's the fact that a lp'er would probably have a fair number of videos out already.

I didn't act as if it takes more time. He said it takes him LESS time to keep them together, implying splitting them up takes too long. Now, since you quoted me and I never said anything pertaining to this, I don't know who you're talking to.

How is it fair that because he's allowed to make longer videos that he not meet the requirements like everyone else?
Make the videos the same length as everyone else to meet the criteria, then make them longer. It doesn't matter one iota how you do it, just that you do.

Nobody gets special treatment and nobody has it worse off.

Besides, I think that for a lot of people, (not me, unfortunately  :-X) tend to watch a quick 10-11 minute video between other activities.  They might not have the inclination to sit through a longer stretch of time.  Not me though, my life is spent watching online vids.   :ds:

Pretty much sums it up... looks like you had jittery hands when writing it though, some letters are in the words twice.

If the statement makes no sense, I just automatically rate the statement a 1. It has to be a well constructed and thought through paragraph for me to give it a high rating. Personal opinion.

You're right, Volv. They need to double check their spellings and their grammar because they don't want to have errors in their statement quality and if they don't they'll never have some possibly to have good results on their application. It's just my suggestions.

While I agree that sentence structure is nice to have, it seems to me that the application is on behalf of individuals who want to become video directors rather than screenwriters. A badly worded application definitely would make me second guess the person, but videos with good quality picture and/or commentary may defeat my reservations about an applicant if I were in a position to judge an application. I've seen quite a few artists, directors, and machinima creators with wonderful videos who can't put a sentence together to save their lives.

well thats the big problem for us, who is not having english as their normal language. I am coming from Denmark, and still are having english in senior Highschool. I have never been good at all this Grammar. Danish and English are having a real different sentence setup, so I first of all have to find out how to build up the sentence, and then think about the grammar and spellings. I am hundred procent sure that I am having some bad grammars and sentence setups in this post. But the most important for me, is that you can understand me.

I am taking this website as a little extra studying. I am learning how to make better english sentences, and by doing commentaries, then I am also using the english language. This is a really great way for me to learn the english language. From 2 years I started making playthroughs, and I sucked that time. Now I am a lot better to write, speak and generally just use the english language.

Now the point is, that I think it is wrong that the spellings and grammars are having a big role from becoming a director or not a director. This website are having members coming from all over the country. What you are saying right now, is that you are only allowing english speaking people become a Director. Because if you are giving the statement quality 1/5 then you are not really having a chance to reach the director qualification.

While true, you're still easy enough to understand. I still prefer to only verbally speak Japanese since it's a lot easier for me, but typing English gets better as you go. So I doubt its held TOO much against you, it seems to be more towards people who are naturally English speakers that still can't seem to formulate proper grammar.

I haven't seen if the requirements were updated since I joined..but if you don't do commentary you'll be put on a higher focus on your quality of video.

Only video quality is required if you don't use commentary. You must have HD quality videos as well as marking the video in some way, shape, or form to state that it is for GameAnyone.com in order to qualify for becoming a director. If you do commentary, the quality of the commentary is weighed more heavily compared to the quality of the video. Still, commentary or not, quality in your videos remains important. It's annoying to watch a video where the sound happens 2 seconds before or after an event. Before the event ruins the surprise while after the event often makes the actions less enjoyable. For example, you might hear a kill was made 2 seconds before it happens, ruining the satisfaction of watching it happen. If it's 2 seconds after, you might have a gun firing in the video but hear the shot later... the gun doesn't sound powerful and is disorienting to watch. Video and audio quality definitely count with or without commentary, in my opinion.

Let's put it this way: You won't be voted down simply because you don't have commentary. As Razzalyn said the video quality requirement is more strict (because that's all you're offering) but if you meet those requirements as well as all the others listed, you have an equal chance of being accepted.

Commentary is preferred, but not required.

Even if you had an N/A, the points are earned in your ability to meet the standards of directorship. You were WAY off the mark, so your commentary score is negligible.

You need to be able to show us you not only know what you're doing, but that you're dedicated, are willing to learn, and continue to show improvement. That's where the points are at.

Well, what you did there was having an opening with crazy loud sound in 720p resolution, the actual footage seems to be much lower and not even in the correct aspect ratio.
So either make the footage 720p or just change the intro and make it in the same resolution as the footage you're recording(or rendering). Other than that just make sure you keep the volume of intro - footage around the same level.

Quality-wise it does look okay.

The watermark is atrocious.
First of all, do as Aeterna suggests, and use the correct aspect ratio. It looks really bad having a watermark on a video that doesnt fit the screen stand out like that. White on black does NOT make it blend in.
Use a different font and make it look like it belongs there, not like you just slapped on some text.
The quality is not bad, but then again, if you render in HD, that's most of the battle. Size it correctly and do something about the brightness.

Thanks for the suggestions, Im new to this whole vegas thing (as you can probably tell). That level is dark generally, it is set to be a night level. I thought the watermark just had to be bold and stand out but I suppose its a bit to plain and ugly.
Do you have any suggestions for the intro or should I keep it as is?

The intro is way too long, first off. Over 20 seconds of the video are dedicated to an introduction. When I first was doing introductions they were around 8 to 10 seconds... and even I felt that was really pushing it. I've dropped that completely at this point. Check out Razzalyn's videos as they are a great example. No introduction video at all, just a GameAnyone.com logo that is attractive and allows the viewer to know what the video is for. Razzalyn would be a perfect example for you to strive for as she does not use commentary either.

Most games allow you to change the brightness level or gamma in some way. I've turned up the brightness in my Thief LPs quite high to ensure what I do is visible even though the game should be pitch black in many places. We want to see what you are doing, not watch shadowy shapes bounce around on the screen while we strain to figure out what is going on. Make sure to pay attention to the brightness of the game when you first record and do what you can to increase the brightness if necessary.

Following Razzalyn I will delete the intro video, and ive made the watermark brighter and hopefully not incredible tacky. If someone could give me a watermark to use, as im not to good at video editing that would be helpful. I know you guys mentioned in another thread that different ones are better but I dont want mine looking like a piece of crap ;)

All you have to do is to insert a text to one of the corners so it is not annoying the viewer. A lot of playthoughs are having watermarks that maybe cover the health bar or somthing like that. Try to make it small and viewable. The most recommended is to make a text watermark. Do not use an image or something. just use a normal font like arial, and maybe make it a bit transparancy (But not too much). Also to maybe make it a bit cool, then search on the web for a font that also have been used in the game itself. So if you are doing the 007 playthrough, then try to search for a 007 font on the web.

A recommended website to find a font is http://www.dafont.com - This website are having thousands of different fonts that you can easily install.

Watermarks are incredibly easy to make.  And having a lot of Fonts is a bonus.  I have over 200 downloaded fonts.

Yes, I did. I've also read the director page. I know what it takes to become a director, and what to do to stay a director. My original post was just expressing how it'll take a while due to the 50 video minimum before I try out. Believe me, I won't try out for the director position until the right time comes. I apologize for the wording in my post to make them unclear in its meaning.

What Skorch is saying is the bare minimum will never cut it. If we see someone who only has 52 videos, they won't become a director. It doesn't show us that you're dedicated to it. We're looking for people who are really good at making videos, really love it, and look like they'll continue for a long time into the future. Meeting the bare minimums makes you look like a very average application at best. We want someone who stands out from the crowd, someone we can call special who can join the ranks of the directors to be someone that we proudly want to have represent GameAnyone.com.

Thanks for putting it more thoroughly Foxy. I never intended to apply for the position with the bare minimum, which explains the "until I feel I'm ready" part. I know gameanyone is looking for people who stand out, and I am merely expressing my desire to do so.

Confidence is not only important when you apply, it's also important when you record. it comes across in your performance in the game, as well as how you conduct yourself.

From some of your vids, you seem nervous and hesitant to speak. You need to entice the viewer into watching your videos.

Your game choice is also not very unique. We want directors who give the site what it doesn't already have. We realize you have to do what's comfortable to you, but we also want variety. Look for requests and games we haven't already got recordings of.

Also, you might want to look at your audio and video recording settings. You are getting some static in your videos when you speak. Usually, this is caused by mic sensitivity being too high. Usually happens when there is a spike in the audio levels.

Hopefully you get the confidence you need, but take my tips to the table and see how you can help yourself get better if you are doubting your performance.

Thanks for the tips.  And I was really shy at first about my commentary, but I've actually gotten used to it so it's not a problem.  My biggest problem is thinking of something to say so I'm not silent for most of the video.

As for variety, the only really unique games I could do are racing games since I'm a big fan of that genre.

I forgot I raised my mic sensitivity, but I only get static when I record the audio via Camstudio.  If I use the default Sound Recorder I don't have that problem.

I'll likely reapply in 1-2 months. I've started doing all my videos in HD but I'm still tweaking a few things like commentary style and watermark size. I feel that I need a bit more work.

Same here Carlo. I can take care of everything else. But when it comes to HD and Commentary not something my capture card can't pull off sadly.

Oh well, I'll stick as a normal contributer, more fun for me that way. Plus I'm not into the who reward for doing LP's deal myself. I just do it for fun.

But good luck to all Directors and future Directors, and Assistance of course. :)

I've been audio-marking (I think) my lastest videos and I plan on Let's Playing games that have not been uploaded at all or only one or twice on GA as well as trying to be more talkative on my commentary (I fixed the static problem).  Would this help my chances at directorship?  Sorry for the n00by questions.

Any improvement helps, but we are looking for people who aren't just trying to meet the bare minimum. If you seem like you're forcing yourself to meet director criteria, we will see it's not coming naturally to you.


Title: Re: Game Anyone Directors
Post by: rynogt4 on October 06, 2010, 12:38:13 PM
I understand.  And while the bare minimum is seemingly the best I can do right now, I'm also trying to do this to help make my videos better and more entertaining and hopefully reach out to more people who hopefully enjoy them.  After all, I do have less than 200 subscribers and over 300 videos.  But enough rambling...Thank you for the honest facts.

yes, but I remember him being a level 3 or 4 apprentice, and he told me when he applied. Then, when his results came back, he was a level 1 again.


Title: Re: Game Anyone Directors
Post by: skorch82 on December 11, 2010, 07:50:21 PM
He had never been a level 1 to begin with. The experience drop isn't automatic.
He's no longer an apprentice anyways, so mind yourself, and you'll be fine.

Every director on this site is an "Official Gameanyone Director".  I honestly don't understand one post you ever write.  And if quality is the only thing keeping you from being a director (which I doubt it is), than go out and fix it.  Buy a better capcard, or fix your setting.....its not like you have to train to get better quality.

From my director applications quality isn't just the bitrate you render at, its your watermark, your commentary quality and overall quality... your comment is really ignorant and if you think that rendering at a 12 milllion bitrate will get you director then your wrong. And I think as a new guy who doesn't really know the process shouldn't comment on stuff that he doesn't know about?

It's not too late to start editing Watermarks into the videos you've yet to upload or record.  And even then, having only 1 walkthrough wouldn't give you a good shot at becoming a director anyways.  It's a learning process.  And it takes time.


Title: Re: Game Anyone Directors
Post by: frozenfoxy on March 26, 2011, 09:11:15 PM
If you have the videos on your computer still, you can just use an editing program to put the watermarks in. I like VirtualDub, but the file must be in AVI format. For pretty much everything else, Sony Vegas does the trick.

In the future, I recommend audio-marking your walkthroughs, it's quicker and easier if you don't have a working knowledge of VirtualDub or Sony Vegas, but if you do, then FrozenFoxy's advice should do the trick for you. Especially if you like to be creative with the Watermarking. :3

If you're asking about doing video walkthroughs of games someone else has done before then yes you can if you want. People have different approaches to completing a task or battling a boss or they might want to show off a few glitches or secrets that other players or even other Walkthrough Makers might not know about.

i'd like to become a Director at some point, but all my current LP's going on on YT are in progress, so i'll wait til i start a brand new walkthrough and start adding the audiomark for each episode then.

When I do eventually apply to become a director  :P, can I still upload videos to YouTube?  Or will that void my "directorship".

You can still upload walkthroughs to youtube. All of the current directors still do.

justa quick question for becoming a director.  i have multiple LP's on going right now, so would i need to add the audio/watermark to each and every LP, or just 1 LP and finish that one and apply?  i would add the audiomark to my others as well and send them over as well, but i just want to be extra sure.

in my case, i have Final Fantasy 9 as my main LP, and i know it'll be 50+ videos, so i could start adding the audiomark starting ASAP, and keep it in for the duration until i finish the LP.

you need to add a watermark or audiomark to all of your videos forever, if you want to be a director. but you dont need to ripe your old videos down just to watermark or audiomark them. and you need more then 50 videos with water/audiomark, if you just have 50 or a few more you wont become a director, as far i know. and you need more then one LP/walkthrough with watermark/audiomarks. do this for some time and then apply.

more info here about applying for director http://www.gameanyone.com/?p=dirApply
correct me if im wrong with somethin'

EDIT: i forgot to say. try be creative with the watermarks. the directors also looks at your watermarks when applying.

Annotations especially don't count now with the further fact that you can close them out on YouTube. Far far away from watermarks...

I must ask, as I do have roughly 250 videos in 5 playthroughs uploaded to the site, 31 of which are watermarked. If I just used Annotations on the remaining 20 to get the minimum 50 would my application for director get rejected then for that?

Yes it would be rejected, Annotations do NOT count as they are not permanently part of the video, it is also generally a good idea to have a lot more than the minimum 50 requirement and keep in mind that in-progress guides do not count, your guides must be complete and contain the minimum 50 videos with a audio or watermark.

I'm starting to think that people still aren't getting the idea, that the 50 minimum isn't really a good shot at becoming a director in the first place.  And there a fair amount of previous posts with similar questions.  I know it's like 75 pages posts here.  But still, lol

I believe midway through still counts towards 50 minimum.  But 50 minimum isn't a good shot really.

I know what you mean. There's a lot of this "Lets just make it to 50, and then be done with it". Well, what if the guide isn't complete? You're going to be uploading the rest anyways, and if your guide is halfway done, add the watermark, but don't count it in - if it makes an impression, fine, if not, then leave it at that.

Seems to me like people misunderstanding the point of the watermark. I feel that people should be using it, not because they have to do it to become directors, but because they want to spread the word of Gameanyone, and it is that kind of people that should be made directors. Directors are people who make sure there are good guides on GA, not "just someone that posted watermarks on 50 videos".

I one day hope to become a director. While I have the 50 videos audio watermarked, I will probably wait until I hit a few more thousand views. I know views are not everything, but I would rather wait for a larger fanbase. Hopefully I'll see the directorship later down the road.

All i see is the more views your content has with a decent quality, the more chances you get.

GA won't give chance to talented poeple at their start of LPing, you better work on more for more subs : Directorship means bringing more traffic to the website and having the best quality & commentary to contribute with, also some unique games would be even more better.

Good luck mate.

I don't know when the last time was when you applied, but there has been quite a change in the directors on the site. A few new directors has come, myself included, and a bunch has left. We give you honest feedback and hope that you embrace it. Know that when we look at an application, we vote, and we cannot see how our fellow directors vote.

I don't think it would be sensible to discuss your application in an open forum. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to PM me, and I'll try and shed some light on the matter. I can only answer for myself, and I do not know your final scores, but I'll help if I can.

Being denied is not defeat, nor should it be seen as offensive. It is a way for you to take what you want from the feedback you get, and see if you can apply this to the way you create your content.


Title: Re: Game Anyone Directors
Post by: ASHfire06 on November 04, 2011, 06:04:11 AM
@Ionut712

It isn't all about quality, views, etc. The problem is are the games that you're choosing to bring to this site. To be straight forward, if you aren't well known, those MW3, BF3, Arkham City, Skyrim video projects(Just to name a few for an example) will be blended in with the other thousands of contributors on YT, or on GA. And as a result, your video projects will not shine. It is possible of course, but that process can take a very long time. This place can give you huge opportunities, and in order to get up there, you must think outside the box, be creative, produce content that this site does not have. That is the key, originality. I've been here for many years and have been asked to become a director plenty of times, but denied them because it just wasn't my thing. And all I do are PSP videos, which aren't flashy and 1080, HD'ish at all haha. Originality will get you up there. Just look at the home page, most of the time you'll see games that you haven't heard of, or have forgotten. I'm not saying to stop with big games, but to bring it down a notch. If you're working on 3 projects...try doing 2 unique games this site does not have, and 1 huge game that everyone knows of. Good luck.

If you become a director, can you still submit to youtube, or can you only submit videos to gameanyone.

Also, can an audiomark be used in the beginning of videos instead of a watermark. Watermarks in videos take too long to render.

Yes you can still upload to youtube(but only exclusive view count towards the revenue system), and yes you can audiomark.

Uh, a little watermark shouldn't do anything to the render time. Even if it did, I can't imagine it would be much.

Anyways, just remember to audiomark every episode. I record a few hours at a time and then make my edits where it makes sense, so audiomarking wouldn't work very well for me :P

No. The revenue system works by rewarding those who upload exclusively to GA. It doesn't make a different if you make front page or do new releases. The only variable that determines how much you much make is by your exclusive monthly views. There are countless LPers who do retro games and still net thousands of views.

It kinda is a secret, but mostly because it changes all the time depending on our advertisers and our expenses. Depending on how committed you are, you can make quite a lot, but you should always try to have fun and not let the money get in the way. It really is there to help out to buy new games, consoles, and recording equipment.

I know the minimum amount of videos is 50, but what is recommended. I know that I probably don't have a very big chance of becoming a director if I do the bare minimum, but how about 150 videos. How many hours of footage do you guys recommend before applying for a director. Two days?

50 is the minimum. You can become a director with that. But the 50 videos must be marked with a watermark. This is really just to show that you are willing to dedicate to the site, and that you can actually produce content.

While watermarking is important, it's not the only one. Video quality and enjoyment weigh in a lot more :)

Yah, I'm audiomarking. Currently, I'm doing an LP of Rayman Origins, and I'm doing a new video for each level. So, I think there may be 35-45 videos alone for that one walkthrough. I think I may wait until I have about 100 videos or more, so that I don't apply with just 3 walkthroughs. I'll apply when I have 5 or so.

If I remember reading this correctly your videos do not have to be in HD so long as you provide commentary, but if no commentary is present than the HD videos will be required for directorship.


Title: Re: Game Anyone Directors

Indeed, the only time your videos has to be in HD, is if you don't provide commentary. I suppose, if you are doing only old arcade games (like NES games), which can't really be recorded in HD, and doing them without commentary, then that might be okay if the videos are like super awesome :)

Most games that are only a few years old can be played in 1280x720. Heck, I'm recording an 11 year old game right now, in 720p. But all in all, if you can't do commentary, and you can't do high quality videos, then they better be pretty spectacular :P

I believe it still does not matter it has to at least be rendered so that it is in HD, but dont take 100% of my words because I can still be wrong until confirmed by Mace or one of the admins.  :P

Most games that are only a few years old can be played in 1280x720. Heck, I'm recording an 11 year old game right now, in 720p. But all in all, if you can't do commentary, and you can't do high quality videos, then they better be pretty spectacular :P
videos not in 1280 x 720p can still look pretty. im recording a 5 year old game and it's resolution is only 1024 x 768p. i don't know if this rule for directors is still around but, frozenfoxy, told me if the game can't be played in 720p it doesn't really matter because you can't do anything to change it. though, i can change the video's resolution by useing a few zoom tool, but that's gonna kill the quaility.

If a game plays in 1024 x 768, and you record it that way, and later stretch to 1280x720, few will notice. Maybe that things are a bit wide, but shouldn't be too bad.

However, 90% of PC games, has an .cfg/.ini/.whatever where you can manually change the resolution. You can find out for each game by googling "gamename widescreen".

If this post has a shitload of wrong spelled words, ops. Tired.

it's a pain in the ass getting the right info for the game, so it's not worth wasteing time on it. but im probably gonna do it sooner or later while im mixing around with my videos.

Once you learn how it works, it'll take you like 30sec to fix it on most games. Getting the info is also easy, considering it's 90% of the time about like this:

width="1280"
height="1024"
r_mode=something

and you change res to what you want, then r_mode to -1.

It's a bitch when you must edit registry etc tho. That can also be semi-dangerous it you're a loose canon.

You dont HAVE to force a game to 720p. Like it is stated, for older games, where it's difficult to get good resolutions, just play them as is. I went through a hell of a time getting NOLF (coming monday! :P) to 720p. It was doable. The biggest problem with older games is that they are in the 4:3 standard, with no real widescreen support, so of course this gets taken into consideration.

If you want to take advantage of the HD encoder, instead of the SD one (because it's a ton better), render in 1280x720 but keep the black bars. Don't stretch the frame out because then it'll look weird with elongated characters and whatnot. If you want an example of the former, look at my Headhunter videos.

i took a look on headhunter and yea it looks ok. but it's exclusive and GA's HD encoder is better and youtubes is not, so it would still look like crap. but i think im wrong so i need to ask about the encoder.

does the GA HD encoder only work when you upload to GA, or will it still encode videos that are embedded from youtube? or do you need to be a director befor it encodes embedded videos?

The thing is jevrio1 that they bash on everybody's quality but they don't look at they're own quality wich most of them have horrible quality , my point is what makes them better than me ,you or some people on this website that should be directors because we improved on everything they asked , and every time they find something new to complain about . I want to see how you will react after you applied as a director 4 times and every time they find something new .


If your grammar is better good for you mate , english was introduced in my country 10 years ago until then it was romanian and russian ...So yea .

I just want the know how is it possible that even when we qualify for everything and our matterial is better thant the standars they can find something to complain about .

They have said that they also look at stuff such as forum posts etc, not that I know if that's the problem.

We all are always improving. I'm still not completely happy with my own videos. We have various contributors who make great videos that are not directors and never will be. What we look for when we vote on applicants is not just your videos, but if we think both you and GameAnyone would truly benefit from you being a director.

We deny applications all the time - not because we think we are better than you, but because we want to challenge you. We provide feedback not to bash you, but to help you accomplish things that you never thought were possible. Some of the current directors were denied the first time they applied, but has since then shown to be director material, and have joined the ranks. We are looking for those who can innovate, as to stand out from the crowd. This is something that you have to find for yourself.

@Ion, one requirement for becoming a director is to start acting like one. Why not PM Mace about your complaint, or even us directors, Instead of getting upset on the forums? Directors are the representatives of the site, we aim to be as professional, helpful, courteous and humble as possible. You've shown to be angry and foul-mouthed. Take it from someone who was denied directorship many times because of his attitude.

I'd say watch this advice as it really depends on the original resolution the game runs at. For example I've found that some resolutions that are very close to 720p, can effectively be stretched out a tiny bit and look just fine. Nobody notices it then.

So take it on a per-game basis.


Title: Re: Game Anyone Directors
Post by: CaptainCapsaicin on December 08, 2011, 02:47:27 AM
If I can't get a game to hit 1280x720 (some older PC games can't hit that for instance), I prefer CLPV'ing it if I even alter the video to fill the screen at all. 

Typically I don't like to stretch or manipulate the video in any way, but if taking a bit off the top or bottom doesn't really affect the GUI or visuals in any particularly noticeable way I prefer that method. 

Of course, I don't mind black bars either personally.

If its true that you been stealing videos from other people. Whats the point of being here? No wonder you been uploading so fast. You should be banned for at least one month or longer. Pokemonupload.....you better give those guides back or delete everything that you upload.

For those who already does that, that might do it. But that would leave all older videos for those who don't, unverified.

They'll watch random videos of gameplay and search for it on the net (Incl. only new videos ). Of course Cutscenes are solid but none plays the game exactly the same way.
It is a lot of work and takes a lot of time  :-*, but it'll save the community from fraudsters in the future ;D.

This Idea is possible, so here's my idea.

When you sign up on websites you have to verify your email by clicking a link in the email to confirm its your email?

Why not take this concept but use it on youtube, so say I submit a guide from my youtube account which is xXExceedEdgeXx just like here. You submit a guide and you know how it takes time to process why not send a verification PM to that User on youtube?

They check their inbox on youtube click a link to verify, there problem solved.

Your guides are all great - if you end up joining the Game Anyone Crew then I will backup all your current videos aswell.

You have to have at least fifty of your videos be watermarked with the Game Anyone logo, or mention that the video is brought to you by Game Anyone. Then you have to be approved by a majority of the current Directors.

Yeah I have been taking down all my cheating stuff so I can try to become director again, cause really over here to be a director you guys told me you should not have to cheat, it should be actually playing the game as is, and I do understand that that's why I am dedicating myself over here, only non cheating guides for me, for now on.

Tried to get approved, and man it's so hard! I do know that I need to do a few more reforms in my walkthroughs. I know that I need to have finished more walkthroughs of longer length (>1 hour) as well as having an easier to understand watermark. The main problem here is my voice, the current headset microphone may be inadequate, and it does not help that I have asperger's syndrome. In the worst case scenario, I may need to buy a specialized condenser microphone such as the Blue Yeti (costs around 12000 Philippine pesos) to have a chance to be accepted. The struggle continues.

Right, let's get a few facts straight for all you people applying without reading/thinking.

At least some of your games *need* to be Watermarked with legible text. If you can't be arsed to Watermark, then you need to Audiomark your videos. I know alot of you Youtubers like doing commentary, so this shouldn't be mind numbingly difficult. If you can't be arsed to do either, then you are wasting your/my time. As that will invariably cause your score to go through the floor.

Would an annotation be ok? For my GameAnyone originals, I have started adding watermarks to the upper-left side of the corner

If you mean Youtube annotations; No, those will not work. As has been mentioned in this thread about eight times. Where you add watermarks should be dependent on the game. They shouldn't all be placed in the same spot, especially at 720p.

This is what happened - I did not watermark my videos back then since I know this site before. I only begun to do so when I really wanted to be a Director, around December 2012, starting with my Axelay walkthrough on YouTube. But even then the embossed  text would be hard to understand, and thus it would be much better for me to letterbox the video and add the watermark to one of the black bars.

Man, it's so difficult to add watermarks to videos that are at their native resolution (256 x 240) as these are so small!

Resolutions below 720p should end up being letterboxed anyhow, so I don't see the problem... The lower the resolution, the more black space you will have to work with. There are plenty of examples.

I applied for director a while back and was so close. Now I believe I may be ready but I cant apply because I "need to complete the checklist" which I didnt have to do last time. Was there some sort of update on the site to include that?

and by the way, How high do those percentages need to be? Its because 2 of them are pretty high but one is VERY low

Mace simplified it a few months ago, he even announced it in a thread.

What percentages? The numbers on the Director page are all whole numbers, and it tells you how many you need.


Title: Re: Game Anyone Directors
Post by: DethMagnetik on April 11, 2014, 06:10:39 PM
Theres the whole numbers then the completion percentage next to them. For example, "Videos" has a count of 184 with a goal of 250 which shows its 74% complete

You just answered your own question... Learn some math. X_x Now I understand how nobody read the fine print with the old Director app...


Title: Re: Game Anyone Directors
Post by: Maceman on April 11, 2014, 08:32:33 PM
That's Duke being Duke.

But to explain the checklist, you must complete each of the things on the list to 100% before you can apply.


Title: Re: Game Anyone Directors
Post by: DethMagnetik on April 12, 2014, 12:37:59 AM
Thanks for the clarification Mace. I applied once but cant again until they are at 100%. one of them is at 3%. Its gonna take a while lol

Half the previous Directors haven't reached that new view marker, so I wouldn't worry *too* much.


Title: Re: Game Anyone Directors
Post by: DethMagnetik on April 23, 2014, 09:44:44 AM
Im not worried about the views, Im not a person thats always looking at his views.. The problem is that I cant even apply at all unless I meet the mark

Better to *not* apply, than apply and not read the fine print/goals. That was the general idea behind changing it.

If you get gameranger add me, the nickname is thresh25.  Bubba literally plays daily. I haven't for a few months but usually have it open on my desktop.

If you remember corb, he has it as well and will play with me from time to time.  Every now and then there's some TSA guys, KOH guys, Gx, but mainly a lot of ODK.

idk if ill get crusader 2, i've moved on to some better games lol... total war series mostly.

I'm thinking Bud8Amp88 should be the next director. There's not a lot of directors that usually focus on Mario games, might it be console or ROM hacks, but besides that, he's a Level 4 Contributor, and has 5 years experience. He could be one of those, and excel in it, plus he wouldn't mind the extra perks that come with it.

He himself has to apply for the directorship. There are requirements to meet, and if he meets them all he can apply for Directorship.

Andrew, your sentiments are appreciated, but I'd appreciate it if you'd stop trying to do stuff on my behalf.

Frankly, while being a Director would be an honor, I don't know if I'll apply or not. Those guys are some of the best LPers/walkthroughers out there, and I just don't know if I'm anywhere near their level (maybe that's just me being pessimistic though).

I guess we'll see what I do in about another 600 verified views...

Yea being a Director is kind of a big move but after i get all the stuff done i may become one i understand i'm not the best far from it but i love games and really that is what matters most in my eyes that you love what you are doing. I'm at about 74% last time i looked so i'm will on my way to my goal. To anybody who may become one don't worry if you love what you do people will see that and come to your videos.
