Splatpixel's signature is a lie. I'm the laziest person alive. Hey! Let's get married and have fat lazy kids!  :P

On a related note, Halo 3 will have 4-player online co-op (or two players on one 360 playing together with one or two other players via Live or system link also works). For some reason, despite having been an anti-online-coop person thus far, that gave me chills.

Marathon: Durandal on XBL Arcade also rules. I'll be buying it whenever I can bother aquiring some points to buy it with. New online support, polished graphics and better controls make it worth the money even though the original is available for free.

I will have NO money by the end of the year...

(This is a continuing conversation from here: http://www.wayofthepixel.net/pixelation/index.php?topic=4618.0 I put it here because I don't think Halu needs to hear this in a topic where he needs help with his pixel art, I figured if I had put this in his topic, the flame war would just keep going there, so what better place than in the off-topic section?)

Guys, he'd be difficult to see in an actual game, all those blasts flying around, added, the smaller he is the easier the game is, which is what people don't want right? I only meant a bit bigger, okay? I didn't mean up him to giant size, because thats not exactly what you want with the player's ship either, I mean, there's not room for ANYTHING, under some resolution's he's just difficult to see, all we can really clarify at that size is that it's a ship, nothing more. I'm not saying I have some hate agenda against small sprites, it's just, yes, in other topics I have said people should make this or that bigger, but what the hell? Don't freak out just because I suggest making something bigger.

Nothing personal, but your posts are kind of stupid and unhelpfull. I know you try to help but when people post their pixels you should help them improve their work, not change it the way you like it.
Your first post in this topic is a good example:
http://www.wayofthepixel.net/pixelation/index.php?topic=4616.msg57161#msg57161

Compare your crocodile to his, it's completely new. He wants to improve his cute cartoonish character, he doesn't want to make it into a big tough crocodile.

Help people to improve their work. Don't tell them how you think it should have looked.

Croc the badass Croc was intended as a joke..... actually(Maybe the name just wasn't obvious enough). It was supposed to be a joke on how companies today try too hard to appeal to kids(Like the new Sonic and his friend Shadow who uses guns). I did suggest an actual style change, not completely, but the mockups were 2 years old, so I figured he wouldn't get mad over it, I still don't know who that hawk guy is. Remember guys: Everything I say is serious.

Right, so I got my mic, whose up for Gears?

I was considering to post this in the Recorded Pixel Art Project topic, but decided against it.

Basically, can anyone recommend a good program to record the video and sound from my screen?
I plan on making a trailer for twinsen soon, and i have yet to find a program that can record both audio and video, while not slowing down the game to an almost unplayable degree.
Any suggestions would be very very appreciated

if worst comes to worst, I can always record a several thousand frame gif, convert to a movie file, then manually add in the music and sound effects :crazy:
