Possibly somebody with editing skillz should make it. Please don't quote me directly but paraphrase, I suck at this right now.

Let's have some cheesy doom music from the games.
"For years, two gems of gaming have been forgotten and lost in the dust".

But now, a hero comes to save the gamers from bad games : Gog releases Little Big Adventure!!

Well, I consider myself with pretty good editing skills (I made the title sequence to my show, after all), but its somewhat of a time investment thing.
I'm happy to make a great edited video if we have some superb ideas for how it will "flow".

But I also think making stupid, chessy, quick and dirty trailers is also fun and effective advertising.
I hope we get lots of them! (maybe some parodying films?).

I've wanted to make an LBA video for ages but I have no idea how. First of all, is there somewhere that the video from the games is already extracted?

Dont think so - but its probably a good idea.
If someone extracts them and puts them up so other people making trailers could then use them for resources.
I can capture footage easily enough - but it should be possible to direct rip/convert them for highest quality.

For the LBA 2 videos, you're going to need Smacker / RAD Video.

Well I'm currently not feeling very well so all I can do is supply a few ideas. I had some threads (one was a question by Kitarii, the other one an overview of the movies created by me) in the LBA mods forum recently about extracting video files from LBA 2.

I'd love to knock together some videos but I barely have time to get all my work done and have enough sleep at the moment... In fact I'm not getting either of those things. But I will get on this if I can.

Movie

As they're only 320x200 they might not be any use, but I ripped the LBA2 videos with WinHQR. I don't know how to link to a Dropbox folder (or if it's possible) so each file is a seperate URL:

To play them, you need RAD video tools. It can also convert them to AVI's, but the file size increases dramatically; I wasn't sure how to compress them, so any potential trailer-creator will have to do that part themselves.

Also, these are of course copyrighted, so don't link to them outside of this subforum.

Yeah, I considered copyright too. Trailers fall under fair-use, Id say, but not the raw materials :P
Its a shame, as if we could upload them all, it would actualy be possible to edit and make videos purely online. (not great, but supprisingly flexible youtubes edit fuctions are...you can even insert creative commons clips in your videos)

Anyway, thanks for that - if anyone needs help converting Id be happy to lend a hand.

The file I did above for LBA1 I just did as a 70000kbp Divx file. Not perfect, but pretty high quality.

Darkflame: Is it just me or the LBA1 vids you ripped have some problem in the sound, it's not continuos, it keeps "gaping" ?

Cant notice it myself but I didnt check all the way over.
I did have to rip the sound seperate and realign so I guess something could have gone wrong during that.
But it was done in "one lump" (using the 'view all the cutscenes' thing at the end of the game) so gaps are kinda supprising.

It happens all the time, in intervals of 3 to 5 seconds, pretty much during all of it. It skips a few miliseconds of sound.

Look at this printscreen when I've opened it in Sony Vegas, you can see in the waveform it is "cut".

If you listen to the video of Twinsen playing the flute these cuts become VERY evident to notice.

Must be something wrong with my recorder. I just used Cool Edit with LBA playing in the window to get the sound.
If you could rip the sound yourself I could redub it onto the video?

I don't have LBA's installed, sorry (otherwise I would have tried to make my own rip. ).

Anyway, where's everyone else interested in promoting Gog??....... perhaps this should be an open forum.

I have always had problems recording the audio directly from my computer, on Windows and on Linux. I really don't understand what's so hard about it. I DID manage to film my screen without the sound though. I even managed to capture my microphone's sound. But audio, no chance.

I'll try again on a different machine tommorow.

Yeah, its odd its so hard to do right.
Remember the "stero mix" setting has to be up on the recording volumes in windows though.

To get some more posts and more activity in here again:

I still have all the raw video footage from my LBA and LBA2 Let's Plays on my hard drive so I could use these to create some trailers. They are in german, though, but I had no problem playing through the games a bit again if some english text is needed. I also would be able to voice over the trailer, if that is wanted.

You can check out my voice here.
It's in german but my spoken english is not that bad. I was told that when I speak enlish it sounds more like I had a british accent, not a german one.

The only problem, though, is that I am not very creative when creating a trailer from scratch, so if you have some ideas please post some kind of script (with a wishlist for scenes from the game) and I can see what I can do with it.


EDIT:
When a trailer is uploaded to youtube it should probably be in english and have subtiltes in other languages via the youtube subtitle function.

Good idea x2!

Thanks.
I dont have a trailer idea myself right now, but maybe someone else does?
Its sometimes good to pick the music first then work around that.
