So Christmas over, and what with having a small child and a pregnant wife , free time was hard to come by , so the two or three videos I was planning to do didnt happen.(still had a great Christmas with them though!).
I managed to get Terminator Future shock working with Dosbox, and had a blast with it.
Its still a good game and reminds me a lot of Fallout 3 (speaking of which I picked up Fallout:NV for a fiver in the steam sale , God knows when I'll have some free time to play it though), especially in that you can enter any of the wrecked buildings.
I managed a playthough and commentary recording one night.Shot a live action bit at the end over 10 minutes the next , added a very crappy special effect the last night , then did a render and uploaded.
The review contains about 6 seconds of the terminator theme tune (around 3 at the start and 3 or so at the end) , I don't reckon this is enough to get flagged , but I re-rendered a second video with it removed just in case.
I'd been hoping to do a bit on Fatal Racing/Whiplash and Screamer (even have a sealed screamer for an unboxing), but they just dont run well in dosbox.I'm going to revive an old Win98 era laptop and output its S-video port to the vidcap card on my pc (Its still handier than Virtual machining seemingly) so that's another one for the "To-do" list.
