Default Replay Videos: Record, Share, n' View!

With the implementation Chronicle 4's new in-game recording system, I feel that this board should have a thread dedicated to sharing those replay videos. Whether they be grinding videos, PvP, humorous content, or even How-To guides, we should be able to share them on this thread.

To all those that are unfamiliar with replay videos, here are the basics:

1. Well gosh-golly gee, Dr. Box of Fox, what is a replay video and how to I record one myself?

A replay video is a video that is recorded in-game without having to use programs such as fraps. As long as whatever is being recorded isn't hours long, these video files are small and easy to download. When in-game, if you wish to start your own replay video, simply open up your status window and go to the Actions tab. Then browse the various buttons until you find it.

The advantages of a replay video is that when viewing one, you are actually in the place of whoever recorded it. You can move your camera around and zoom in and out, just as if you were actually playing.

The disadvantages are that it is a dramatized feature-- player's names, summons, pets, chatboxes, skill boxes, and other sections of a video are removed when you view one, so that it looks more like a movie than like a ingame recording.

To view your own replay videos, log out of your account and then go to the bottom right corner of your login screen. Press the "replay" button, and the file of the video you recorded should be there.

2. Okay, I recorded my own replay video and I want other people to see it. How do I host it?

Its easiest to host on a site such as Fileplanet or RapidShare...The file that you would like to host is located in the Replay folder of your Lineage II directory. If you can't find a Replay folder in your directory, its probably because you haven't created any videos yet. The moment you start to create one, the game will automatically create a replay folder for you.

3. How do I view other people's videos?

Simply work backward-- download the other person's video file into your own Replay folder and then load your Lineage II client. Instead of logging in, go to the bottom right of your screen and press the Replay button. You should be able to see the file you downloaded there, along with any other videos you might have recorded yourself.

(Once I can actually get on the computer where all my files are, I'll host a few to start us out. Meanwhile, feel free to start posting your own replay videos!)

Okay, I'll start us off with a grinding video-- here, I was on my alt doing some basic polearming with a few friends.

To new players-- observe the role that each person plays in this group. There is the polearmer, who does the main damage of the group. Two healers, who make sure the polearmer stays alive, and a wizard, who works to both support the group's damage and at the same time heal in emergencies.

In this group, multiple mobs (who also have 4 times the regular HP of any normal mob, this is true for all Catacombs and Necropoli) are killed at one time with the polearmer pulling rooms of mobs and then trapping herself in a corner, so that she can group them as close as possible together. The closer they are. they easier it is for her to hit them all with her polearm.

Basic Necropolis of Sacrifice AOE

(Scroll down and press the "free" button. Then scroll down again and enter in the required security code and press enter. A download window should pop up after that)

if you cant find it inside your lineage 2 folder, then just create one ^^; should work.
Or just go and make your 1st replay: the folder will be created for you then.

Right-- the replay folder doesn't exist until you've created one. To create one, make a replay video yourself by logging onto your character, going to the Video option in your skill list, make a quick one and then a replay video should show up

Does anyone happen to have some replays laying 'round? Doesn't matter what it contains, sieges, raid bosses or even yer average grinding. I'm just curious about other classes' playstyle.

Goober, what do you mean by "interface online"? That's sounds very vague ^__^

I will try to load on some more replays once I get to the right computer.

Sorry 'bout bein vague, it's a problem of mine .

I was wondering if there was any way to record ingame..but with the interface? All the ones I have seen have no interface. If you can, how would you do it?

Thanks in advance.

Can't, the replays take off the interface. That's why they are so small in file size

The ingame replay is a great feature in Lineage 2. It would be nice if more MMORPGs did the same thing.

I can record and replay my own videos but when I download any of the above files, save them in my replay folder and try to play them, it causes L2 to crash and I get a critical error message. Is this happening to any of you? Any idea how I can fix this?

replays recorded with a c4 client can only watched with a c4 client, same with c5. a c5 client cannot play a c4 replay cause the files are not compatible.

Thats probably because the replay files in this thread are from C4. They are not compatible with the C5 client.
