      There's really nothing wrong with Youtube. As long as you upload the video in one of their suggested formats the quality turns out great. (assuming the quality of the original video was great)

        Looks like you'll have to decide whether you want to zoom up close for awesome detail, or zoom out for better strategic advantage (the ability to see enemies coming, overview your forces, etc.)

        This is kinda what happened to me in Supreme Commander, too. The graphics there were rather not bad when zoomed way in, but doing that, you lose your strategic perspective.

        Kind of an unfortunate fact about trying to make super high-detail strategy games, I guess... not sure how else you'd reconcile it, aside from making it turn-based, so you can view things up-close as long as you want, then do strategy, then repeat.

        Other than that, it's exciting, and I'll preorder on day 0 to support Linux gaming!

            i like it that way, these games dont really get outdated

            you just give them up after you get tired of playing (which might take a while if you're an rts addict). But people always want new campaigns

              oh and the engine makes it much faster/easier/cheaper to create nice cuts-cenes than trying to recreate them in cgi videos

                You can have your little private war against those sites for any obscure reason of your own, but no need to drag Phoronix in this. Each time there's talk about getting some footage without burdening Michael (or in this case OilRush authors), you come up and try to sell everybody your so-simple-to-setup torrent solution.

                Whatever time Michael and others take trying to learn about setting up a torrent, it's time they don't spend on more important matters, like writing articles, testing or coding. Eventually it all ends up not working, and us users never see those videos, like all those conferences Michael goes to and records.

                I'd rather propose a single click solution that takes them the 10 seconds necessary to type the address in a web browser, then you can get the file and setup the torrent yourself. In the meantime, we at least could watch those videos.

                  I have no issue about putting it up something like youtube, gamershell, etc. Megaupload, rapidshare, mediafire however full of mislinks and are blocked in some countries. There is however a tracker already in place and creating a torrent is childs play. If they can't do that then I highly doubt that they have the knowledge on how to write an article let alone code a game engine. A torrent takes about a minute to start. You can also have it in a multitude of formats so if you want WebM, h264, hell even indeo if you desire so as you can select which formats you want.

                    Look, they are all ready running a torrent tracker. The process is not foreign to them.

                    http://unigine.com/download/

                    Windows version [231 Mb] (fast torrent download)
                    Linux version [233 Mb] (fast torrent download)
                    Windows version [57 Mb] (fast torrent download)
                    Linux version [56 Mb] (fast torrent download)
                    Windows version [30 Mb] (fast torrent download)
                    Linux version [29 Mb] (fast torrent download)

                    Torrenting is a fast, reliable way of distribution.

                        Some ISP block torrents. Some people have a capped bandwidth or pay by the GB, and since a honest use of a torrent means you upload at least as much as you download, you end up using at least 2 times what you'd use with a better solution.

                        As far as 'capped daily downloads' in a previous post, what were you trying to download, a collection of Blurays ?

                        As far as "already running a torrent tracker", the box I use to seed distribution isos doesn't scale well with a great number of torrents (which you'd get if you regularly upload many different videos). You can decide for yourself, but you've got no right to decide for other people what they should be doing, or that they would be incompetent if they didn't (or couldn't, or wouldn't).

                        You act like that on all threads, deanjo, and you end up saying very immature things and dragging threads out of sheer stupidity, like just recently or on another thread (just to keep it to the few past hours).

                            Lol, how many videos do you think they will upload? BTW, the requirements are not nearly as great as you think they are. I have a seedbox going right now as we speak on a lowly atom system distributing training videos to our clients. It works very well. There is a good reason why it 27-55% of internet traffic (depending on location)is generated from bittorrent and why Steam based their delivery system on it. It is highly efficient and reliable.

                            Lets look at megaupload for example from their very own chart

                            Download speed priority Lowest
                            Maximum parallel downloads 1
                            Maximum upload size per file 500 Meg
                            Download limit per 24 hours Very limited
                            Support for resuming up & downloads No
                            Download starts instantly (directdownloads) No
                            Support for download accelerators No

                            It doesn't take much to hit their "maximum daily download limit" . That limit is determined by how many times the file has been downloaded daily. All to often you hit the "try again later" limit.

                            You can decide for yourself, but you've got no right to decide for other people what they should be doing, or that they would be incompetent if they didn't (or couldn't, or wouldn't).
                            My suggestion is just that, a suggestion, no different then your suggestions.

                            You act like that on all threads, deanjo, and you end up saying very immature things and dragging threads out of sheer stupidity, like just recently
                            Two suggestions as to how to access xfs partitions in windows.

                            or on another thread (just to keep it to the few past hours).
                            Another post to put things into perspective.

                              I guess you're fighting in a worthless war %)

                              We'll continue to use YouTube for sharing videos and torrent for distributing big files. Piece!

                                Yes, thanks. I don't mind, just thought that we might have gotten unedited videos, but it's more important you concentrate on the game itself and (if possible) have a great holiday ;-)
