    I got it to buffer to about 1/3 of the way, but that required leaving it for a couple hours while I went and did errands. Not the most efficient method out there.

    Shit dawgs, I didn't mean to do this. Earthworm Jim is just too awesome.

    Also, what if I told you guys that I managed to compress this Tubes video in a new way that not only has quality almost exactly the same as the video I just uploaded but with no slowdown and the same audio? Because I just did. Also while the quality is still the same for this one, somehow it managed to churn out a version of level 1 that had no visible drop in quality from my original version. The only thing is it's bigger but Gamevee doesn't allow downloads anyway right? I don't think the bigger filesize will matter once it's uploaded.

    Anyway, I'm going to upload this newer version to gamevee and I want you guys to tell me how it looks once it works. The main part of Tube Race though will still look kind of shitty because I had to do something to that part with the old compression. It'll be perfect for a test though. Tell me how noticeable the differences were in the sections sandwiching that part.

    It's loading for me, but slowly.

    Also, wavy underwater effect is present in original.

    Oh no, not this time. Maybe I was wrong about the screams in What the Heck, but this time I was right. There is no wavy effect in the SNES game, which as I have said is what I always refer to when I say original so if it was in the Genesis version you may be right. However....

    Yeah, that much you were right about.

    Okay guys, comparisons needed!

    Version 2 of down the Tubes!

    I know Gamevee is still being a jerk but when it stops acting up, I'd like if some of you guys could compare that video to the other video. For the first part of the level and the second part of the race, the amount of slowdown should've been drastically reduced. The first race though should still be crappy because I had it compressed before I did anything. Please tell me if that version runs smoother.

    Also if it's not working by tomorrow, I'll upload a mirror to google and see if Viddler will cooperate.

    Because since I include about 2 minutes worth of the cartoon per video, they say I'm violating the ToS and they remove it. Disregard the fact that if you type in something like Animaniacs you'll get a million results of full episodes divided into parts.

    Like I said though everyone, I'll upload to google or viddler tomorrow if gamevee still isn't working. The problem is google isn't much more reliable than gamevee is right now and Viddler always just says it'll take 15 hours to encode. That's why I don't want to deal with them anymore than I have to.

    Everything uploaded today on gamevee is acting up. I can load my other videos too but if I go to the most recent videos on the homepage, none of them load. I bet it'll be fixed tomorrow though. They have to know of the problem. Tomorrow morning I'll check to see if the video works and if it doesn't I'll get a mirror up. Due to the whole "Not actually getting the video today" like I promised, I'll try to get Snot a Problem edited and up tomorrow as well.

    Seems like the first vid of tube races you put up is working. I watched the whole thing and it worked fine. A little slow at first, but once it got going the speed reached normal frame rate.

    Alright you bastards whom I love so dearly, your complaints were heard and Gamevee is still being a jerk so.....

    A viddler mirror of Down the Tubes! This one's actually viewable! I checked it myself.

    Go forth, frolic, and be merry! I'll see about getting Snot a Problem up today as well and if Viddler keeps cooperating with me I'll keep using them as a mirror. Also, this is the second version of the video so the 3 or 4 of you that watched the first one on gamevee, please check this one out and tell me if there's a noticeable removal of slowdown.

    Wait wait wait. I thought when you got to Bob the Goldfish he got a giant healthbar and the words FINISH HIM show up on the screen, and then Jim eats him?

  • GilderGilder Registered User regular
    edited September 2008
    I'm pretty sure that's in the sequel. You don't even get control over the fight in that one and Jim does eat him. Not sure on the healthbar and words though.

    Well Viddler has decided that it hates me again and I'm not going to let a video encode for over 12 hours. So no Mucus for you folks today, sorry. If Gamevee still isn't working tomorrow.... I guess google will have to be the mirror. Ugh.

    So you can either do the easier Tube Race, or skip it entirely? Huh. Interesting.

    Good video as always.

    Godamn, I hate Tube Race. I absolutely hate it. It was the bane of my childhood. I'd get past it once in a blue moon.

    then I figured out the secret air refill and my chances increased exponentially.

    Hey folks guess what! Much like Dailymotion with its ability to block my videos with no regard to the full episodes of other shows on their site, Google video also blocks my videos even though you can watch stuff way more copyright infringing than 2 minutes of clips! So here's what I'm going to do: I'm uploading to gamevee now but it's still going slow as hell if you try to watch it. However, it is loading. So if you wait like 59 hours it might load all the way. Tonight I'll upload it to viddler as well and have it encode while I sleep. By the morning it should be up.

    Jesus Christ, you wouldn't think that a minute or two of an old Kids WB cartoon that nobody even watched would cause such an annoyance.

    mucus2.gif Major Mucus!
    Major Mucus loves being eXtreme so it makes sense that you fight him in a bungee jumping duel. However he was apparently too eXtreme for the WB as he was never shown in the cartoon, despite his level being included in every version of the game.

    psy2.gif Psycrow!
    While we have seen Psycrow in videos up until now, this is his first real introduction as an enemy. Psycrow always wears the helmet, even when he's on a planet. Perhaps it's keeping in more than just oxygen?

    I'll try for Viddler tomorrow but for you impatient folks, I suggest getting the video to start loading, tab out, and go paint your house or something. By the time you're done, the video might be finished loading.

    Yeah, but some people managed to get Down the Tubes to work so maybe those people can still get it to work. Don't worry though, I'll definitely be uploading to Viddler tonight and it should be up tomorrow morning. Viddler didn't delete my last video before it even got put up so they're my last hope.

    Oh my god, it is loading. Other videos uploaded today are working as well. I guess that Gamevee is sort of fixed now? Down the Tubes isn't working right but it was uploaded during the problem so it might just need to be re-uploaded. In any case if it works then I won't upload a mirror to Viddler because I hate the encoding times.

    Edit: Okay most videos uploaded today are working. Some still aren't. However this one is so watch it while you can folks because gamevee might die again at any moment. It's a race against time!

    Yeah, Jim Cummings voices Winnie the Pooh in the newer Winnie Pooh cartoons and movies and stuff. Obviously not the old toons, he's not that old. He does a ton of other stuff too. Like...well hell, he's one of those voices actors who is in like every cartoon ever. Oh, Monterey Jack from Rescue Rangers if anyone needs a good example of what he, well, sometimes sounds like.

    These blobs float around and explode into delicious shrimp when shot. These shrimp are still alive though and so disgusting to look at that they hurt you.

    Brains just flopping around the lab all willy-nilly. There's not much else to say about them.

    Annoying little pests of an enemy. They come out of certain spots in the lab and you'd think that for such a weak enemy they'd die when you touch them but they don't. They can really rack up the damage if you keep them around.

    prof4.gif Professor Monkey-for-a-Head!

    My favorite villain, solely for his voice actor in the cartoon. The professor obviously has a monkey grafted to his head and while it helps him out here in the game, in the show it never does. Oddly, you never actually defeat the Professor.

    MYSTERY ENEMIES WITHOUT PICTURES?!

    MYSTERIOUS.

    I didn't make the obvious joke in the video and I'm not making it now. This chicken is probably the hardest boss in the game, but that's not saying a lot.
