Other Places: new video series about game locations


Recommended Posts

Other Places is a set of amazing videos of game locations with terrific production values and great use of music. These striking and hauntingly beautiful videos produced by @ultrabrilliant, a British games journalist. Obviously created on PC, most likely using various tools to hide the interface and clip through the world to find the most interesting and evocative shots. I wonder what the general techniques are for this kind of video capture? Here's a sample:

This makes me want to go back and play through Mirror's Edge. I only played the first few levels because I lagged too bad and it became frustrating. I really wish DICE had more freedom to do what they wanted, their game studio is clearly filled with geniuses.

 

Thanks for sharing!

No problem :) seems a really interested use of PC recording to make something a bit different. And it allows me to experience games like Mirror's Edge which I never really gave a chance - although I always heard such great stuff about its art direction and aesthetic I always heard the gameplay and bossfights had some big problems.

There were no boss fights in Mirror's Edge (unless you count the one you chase and then fight, which wasn't really a boss fight anyway). There were a lot of scripted fights which were pretty frustrating particularly in the shard (last level). Try doing that on hard difficulty though like I've done a few times.

      Blank intro video files for Darksiders II Deathinitive Edition.
      Extract into the installation folder, replacing the existing file when prompted.

      In Martian Gothic: Unification, the ending video (<path-to-game>\data\outro.bik) can be corrupted. The other videos aren't. If it is, when it should play the game crash. The used game installation was fully updated with all the available patches.
      Can be tested if it's corrupted using the last RAD Video Tools/Bink and Smacker (Actually Bink 2021.3/Smacker 4.2e) and trying to playing it. If its corrupted it should play with big greens and blues squares as the screenshot. Also MPC-HC doesn't play the video (only the audio) but VLC plays it normally.
      It seems it's about of using a different encoding than the others videos, which doesn't match the binkw32.dll bundled with the game. The game seems to be using Bink compatible with RAD Video Tools 1.0e (which is the one available when this game was launched), and the video is created with 0.8 or below, or a higher version.
      So the attached video is the same video reencoded with Rad Video Tools 1.0e. To fix the video, change the original file in <path-to-game>\data\outro.bik with this one.
      No need to point it out, but this is the ending and it has spoilers, although not the big ones.
