I recorded the first 30 minutes of myself playing through the beginning of the game. I met with Commander Hayes, powered up his space station, defeated an Ilwrath avenger and got Fwiffo to join my crew.
I didn’t record any commentary for this one. I was eating nachos the whole time, so I wouldn’t have much to say anyways. I hope to upload more videos soon.
Recording UQM at 1280×960 with Fraps is tricky. For some reason it doesn’t recognize that size but 1024×768 is fine, but is not available in UQM. I had to set Fraps to record Aero Desktop, effectively recording everything, even sounds that happen outside the game. So I close anything that could potentially give a notification sound during gameplay.
I saw a speedrun of the entire game in 35 minutes. I’ll try not to get stuck for too long or spend too much time mining.
