The Armagetron Channel

Post by Word »

I just had this idea: Why not register an "Armagetron Official" channel on Youtube and just upload screen recordings of all the existing aarec-ladle games with some commentary in the description? I don't think Concord and the respective authors would object* if we add some of the playfortress**/arma-forums predictions in the description (specific for the ladle and the two teams in the video), so that people have some context what the odds were/what people thought at the time (as long as the authors are credited). Maybe someone also wants to provide audio commentary.

I'd do it all by myself but I have to finish the master thesis until March, so go ahead if you like this idea and use this thread to get it organized. If nobody replies here I'll start doing it myself once I have time. If I don't forget it, that is.

*Correct me if you do!
**While the original playfortress site now hosts Concord's posters, the backup is still over here.

EDIT: Noticed that the server with the aarecs is down. Z-Man, you probably wrote about this somewhere already but forgive my ignorance...will they be back up some day?

I probably did post about it; for old recordings you need to edit the download links, replace
http://armagetron.kicks-ass.net
with
http://vps-zman.armagetronad.org
Or edit your hosts file to add an entry for armagetron.kicks-ass.net.

I'd go back and edit the old posts, but there isn't even a local search/replace, so I definitely can't be bothered. Just browse the archive directly at http://vps-zman.armagetronad.org/~manue ... ecordings/ if you want to bulk download old recordings.

Background: the kicks-ass.net domain was a formerly free dyndns service that started charging at some point.
