<DIV>I know I'm probably being over sensitive but shouldn't, "Post a movie of the craziest, wildest, most outrageous things a player could ever possibly be stupid enough to do..." say something like "in game" or "with their character"?</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>I can just see the real life movies coming in, "Hi! I'm an Everquest II player and I'm about to do the stupidest thing I have ever done!"</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Can't hurt to be careful with wording. :smileyhappy:</DIV>

I would participate, but I am stumped on this categorey...  Maybe another video contest will come around that has a theme that I would feel more inclined to participate with in the future.  Good luck to everyone though who does participate.

<DIV>Nice work on the movie but it made me wonder if it is possible to get a monkey illusion form? Is this a collectable quest in the recent expansion? Oh, and who is Leeroy Jenkins?</DIV> <DIV> </DIV>

BarryT
11-03-2005, 02:42 PM
<DIV>You can get the monkey form from a potion, health regen...possibly mana regen... But I think this is suspended in combat, so not sure if that is possibly a new illusionist illusion.</DIV>

So, anyone want to suggest how to make the videos? I have editing tools, but don't have a clue how to get the initial video stream to work with.I tried doing a search on "video capture", but all I found were folks talking about capturing the output from their video cards on a VCR or DVR.

<P>Organised mushroom races across Norrath. Apologies for the quality, the full size version is over 250mb.</P> <P>In case anyone thinks we're silly, to balance things out I should point out that this was a week before we took Darathar down on our first go at him (pre DoF/pre combat revamp) :smileywink:.  So we're not total muppets, we just like a laugh.</P> <P><A href="http://homepage.ntlworld.com/bah.humbug/mushrooms.wmv" target=_blank>http://homepage.ntlworld.com/bah.humbug/mushrooms.wmv</A></P> <P> </P><p>Message Edited by markdevox on <span class=date_text>12-14-2005</span> <span class=time_text>06:14 PM</span>

<P>Yep the winner is announced  <A href="http://eq2players.station.sony.com/contests/" target=_blank>HERE</A></P> <P>Grats to the winner of this competition, is there any intention to ever make the game more global by having in-game prizes so you can include all players on all servers?    It's not like the cash prize was tied to some product promotion or anything, where you don't have a corporate sponsor pushing the prize I'd think the option is open for an in-game item (actually, there have been promotional sponsored in-game items in EQ before so even that wouldn't limit it)</P> <P>I am happy that at least the French server players get a competiton with prizes (see <A href="http://eqiiforums.station.sony.com/eq2/board/message?board.id=302&message.id=3352" target=_blank>HERE </A>), they've got a very nice Game Master :smileyhappy:</P> <P> </P>
