Alternate pool video lessons? & Blog suggestion

Postby Dark Rider » Sat Dec 22, 2012 10:04 pm

Wow this forum is slow. I guess everyone is getting ready for x-man in 3 days.

I understand in VP4 there will be some video instruction. It is said this is just the basics. How is this compared to Janette Lee's videos from VP3? Is it a lesser amount of video instructions?

Assuming so, is there any good alternate video series that is free online people can use to learn ( or refresh) how to shoot?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I just saw the blog and wanted to comment on the FOV post. I did not register because not only is a name but an address and phone number is required. In today's climate of internet security troubles people are advised against giving such personal information over the net.. even to a game company you think you can trust. I predict you will get many more registrations if you lessen these stringent registration requirements.

Is that also the same site that will handle the VP4 online games? If so, I think you will be surprised at the amount of potential online players that are not willing to give such information. You will therefore lose money, and IMO it's not a very smart business practice.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The blog gives a formula for finding your preferred FOV. Many people find this to be bothersome and or inaccurate for them. (from the comments) As a first person gamer for many years, ( and we do play VP in first person) I can tell you the easiest way is to ignore that formula and start with the default of 40. Then just bump the FOV up in 5 point increments until you find what works right for you. This is how it's done in every first person video game and works well without having to worry about such a formula.

IMHO the VP4 video lessons are much better than the VP3 lessons.
There are more videos, more information, much more to learn and many many shots to try.

But if you buy the game to play LAN (weren't you posting that in another thread?), you will be disappointed. There is no LAN option.
The offline version is truly offline.

Regards FOV: Yes, you can get there by just trying. In order to do that you have to have an idea of how a table should look like though.
The formula gives you an idea, if you are not sure about that.
There can be recommended FOVs below 40. If you play on a small screen, you may want to start experimenting at the lowest FOV possible.

And yes, you will have to give your personal information to play online.
Of course you could make up a name or address, but in case you buy products or services, the info should match the information on your credit card or whatever you use for the purchase.
If you play online poker or purchase things online at Amazon or similar sites or even if you just register your Starbucks card for free drinks you have to enter your information too, so I don't see a huge issue with that.
That's unless of course you think Celeris in particular does not appear trustworthy. To me they are. They are long enough in business.
But everyone has to decide for themselves.
