Big +1 to this, having used the demo recorder in half life 2 on previous occasions.

There'd be large technicalities to work with in this, but yeah.... I certainly feel it'd be worth it.

You should have enough control over your herd of cats to make them understand. If they constantly make misstakes, get better cats.

I used the battlerecorder in Battlefield 2 years ago, definitely looking forward to a spacerecorder in EVE.

You guys are heroic y'know that?

Yea the guys at CCP have to give in. Don't forget to encourage your CSM rep to keep bringing it up. They'll likely tell you what they told me: We know, CCP know, they talk about it, it ain't in EVE yet.

That's still encouraging news!

Amazingly I've been kicking this idea since Oct '07 with the support of hundreds of you awesome people. I tried to personally thank everyone but the list became ridiculous. I still want to.

7 years and 3 months and still going strong!

I was watching that "making off this is eve" video a while back and it seems that client they use to make those videos might be adaptable for the "rendering" at the end...

Yea I can't see any reason why a simple vid editor of the like they use to build those vids can't be shared with us. I mean we make the most amazing vids as it is, can you imagine someone (with enough work or course) making a film with eve graphics? Or walking in stations graphics? The possibilities blow my mind.

Hahah maybe, maybe. In the UK & Ireland we have a similar guy, Barry Scott. He's Billy Mays but with less arm waving.

Half-Life 1 had this, EVE really should by this day and age.

~ to open console
record < demo name here >
blahblahgameplay
~ to open console
stop

It was required to record every ranked match for playing in CAL / ESL / that bad one that started with an O.

Test signature....forum not applying settings :(

Believe it or not Eve had a tool for making demos from near day 1. Simple commands for ships flying in formation and whatnot.

CSM and CCP were talking about it, but no news has appeared since. I was told it's because of the NDA they signed. I am hopeful!

Like i said it probably the most convenient if we can somehow get a list of imputs and dump that into a sort of rendering engine at that also makes it so you can zoom around the battlefield to look at all the cool **** you missed in the moment.

Great idea. +1 and a Bump for that.

But, we all know, what it means, when CCP claims something is going to be released "soon(tm)". So this quote:
Quote:
This is something that has been discussed internally numerous times and it is pretty awesome. I do believe it's even on some backlog or other, but I don't know when or if it will be attacked.

means probably, "come back in 5-10 years and maybe then it will be a thing, but for now... naaaah..."

We have combat logs anyway. This way it's just more detailed combat logs, containing xyz data over time. It doesn't have to be so complex, it's possible to aggregate the positionings and redraw them later in the client. Servers do this many times over, the difference is you'd be doing it locally and just setting a path for the camera maybe to make a tutorial, a how to or a demo. Maybe even an epic fight video.

This way you can fight on low graphics and your propaganda pilot can film it in hi def!!

Something which a third-party program already does so well? Sure, but why...

Because, being short about it, this idea basically allows more complex videos to be made, without having to use any third party programs and without having to manually control camera work. Instead, you can build a scene, then run it and record it. You make the scene perfect once, then publish it.

Or you use it to analyze a fleet fight in micro detail. Or you use it to show YouTube how awesome you are at PVP/PVE.

Or you can watch the Alliance Tournament LIVE, in the client, meaning YOU control the camera, YOU get to watch it happen how you like.

There's a LOT of benefit aside from saving you AND CCP bandwidth, it saves time, and time is invaluable!
