Hi everyone!

Now that we have updated the getting started threads with Knossos instructions (so newbies won't have a heart attack when they see the old wXLauncher instructions  :lol:) and I have completed the 'promotion via articles' cycle for the time being, i have turned my attention to the HLP YouTube Channel, with its one video  :p

Well now it has two! Achille44 has kindly created an up-to-date version of the 1999 vs now intro video which looks stunning. Here is the link :-)

NB - I may need to attribute the music. Can anyone provide the details (other than being the X-Factor music  :p)

I am still looking for banner art to take the place of the grey rectangle shown in the attached image. You can see in the second screen-grab that any image used for the channel art needs to be quite large - a 1080P screenshot will not work I'm afraid- I tried. If anyone can provide something that would be  great. A 4K-screen grab might work, nut my PC is not beastly enough to handle 4K (plus my 1080P TV/Monitor wouldn't display it anyway.)

If anyone is doing playthroughs, recording demos, cut scenes, weapons and graphics tests etc. that they would like featured on the channel please send through the files and I'll upload them :-)

There is one video in particular I am trying to find which I suspect one of you fine people created. It shows GTVA  cap ships fighting Shivans. Except the T&V blob turrets have been replaced with rapid firing pink anti-everything guns which look spectacular! Anyone know what it is called or can share a link? I would love to add it to the liked videos, or add it to the channel if someone has the original file.

My dinner is getting cold so I'm off to stuff my face :-)

They're not visible unless you're logged-in; you should put them somewhere (heh I'm the one to talk :D), but for such a PR-related thing I'd consider it necessary.

0:00 - 1:30 - I think that's the soundtrack from the original FS1 intro
1:38+: Artist: Two Steps from Hell; Title: Heart of Courage; Album: Legend
"When you work with water, you have to know and respect it. When you labour to subdue it, you have to understand that one day it may rise up and turn all your labours into nothing. For what is water, which seeks to make all things level, which has no taste or colour of its own, but a liquid form of Nothing?" - Graham Swift, Waterland

"As you sought to steal a kingdom for yourself, so must you do again, a thousand times over. For a theft, a true theft, must be practiced to be earned." - The terms of Nysa's curse, Pathfinder: Kingmaker

"...because they are not Dragons."

I recall Axem had some neat showcases and the like on his channel - would be fun to see those brought over! Ask him about that rainbow beam of death demo. :)

Regarding the YouTube 2560x1440 banner art, I've just found out I can take (probably) any size screenshot while still using my 1080p monitor. Wonderful!

So - what do you want a pic of? :)

Ooh, sounds good, thank you.

Re what to use as an image. I'm not sure exactly. Something that shows off HLP at its best, and looks good in a 'letterbox' format since the banner is very wide but not very tall. The attached screen grab is a good example. I'm open to suggestions, either that or surprise me  :)

Thank you.

I will have a look at these again, but the dimensions of all the ones I saw before were too small. The banner needs to be 2048 by 1152 pixels. 1080p screen-grabs are too small, hence the need for 4K screen-caps.

Who would have though YT would be so picky?  :P

yeah, all my submissions are of Star Wars ships, and I think HLP YouTube needs something FS2 related.  And, maybe it's obvious, but I can only easily retake @2560x1440 my own screenshot submissions :D

Re: HLP YouTube channel
Not sure if mjn.mixael has sent you some artwork or not, but in case not I've created the following screenshot for the YouTube channel. Funnily enough it's from BtA :) I was looking through the wiki screenshots for inspiration and liked this one. I just played with the mission a bit to make the action fit into less vertical space.

Re: HLP YouTube channel
I think it is too small (or was not fitting as YT had some very specific demands).
