    EDIT: Fixed link!

    Greetings, all!

    I started a YouTube playlist where I do a Let's Play of Temple of Elemental Evil with Temple+ and the Circle of 8 mod. The format is not a standard Let's Play, but treating the game like I'm running an online D&D 3.5 tabletop campaign using ToEE as a visualization app.

    Enjoy, all!

    First video is entirely black screen; the music/background sound from the game drowns out narrator's voice.
    2nd video is largely silent/soundless, with apparently nothing happening onscreen for long stretches, and occasional black screens for short stretches.

    Not trying to be mean, but helpful. Honestly, both videos need work before releasing to the public.

    Greetings again, everyone! This video series has been rerecorded and expanded also to include episode 02! Previous problems with audio and video have been fixed through a combination of these and perhaps other means:

    -Using a registered version of Bandicam which, unlike the free Loilo Game Recorder which I commonly used for other recordings, showed the ToEE PC game properly.

    -Properly configuring Bandicam meant that other people could hear me.

    -Not using alt-tab when viewing the script meant less undesired scrolling to dark places sometimes targeted by magic missiles.

    -Using a standalone mike (Blue's Snowball Ice) instead of a standard Logitech headset and recording in quiet room in a college campus instead of at home improved audio quality.

    Finally, thankee to everyone who watched the previous videos or/and gave constructive feedback! I appreciated knowing early in the series that my recording setup needed fixing!

    Haha, just watched these first three. This is so nutty. I'll be seriously impressed if you complete the whole game in this series.

    The recording was much better this time around, by the way.
