Viewing Thread: More publicity for Meteor 1 and 2?

Hi, I've played Meteor 1, Meteor 2 and a whole lot of mods with both games and both the original game and the mods I've tried are AMAZING. My favorite is the Crater mod for Meteor 1.

I found out about this game through a gaming forum when someone just posted a screenshot of meteor one and it looked interesting and after a bit of digging I found meteor.

Now the game is way too unknown considering how good it is and how extensively moddable the game is. So I'm giving a thought of directing some mod activity and announcing the game on a website called Moddb.com. I saw Meteor 2 there, but its image could use some improvement like a top banner and some more media (Images, Videos, Modding tutorials) and make sure to make some news that Moddb.com presents on the front page for THOUSANDS of modders and gamers alike to notice.

Moddb.com is Mod Database where all modders and indie developers (JB Games *hint*) show their work to the public and get big attention.

Meteor 1 and Meteor 2 should be there and they should be brought up into the spot light there because they are WORTH IT. Seriously. Just put up some pictures and mods you might have created along with news and release announces with news that will be shown on the front page and put tutorials on how to mod the game in order to get Meteor games to grow. Give them a clean, polished image on the Moddb.com page.

I've enjoyed the games plenty so it would be nice if more people would find out about it.
What is signature. o_O

Ohh, please, PLEASE do that. There are currently like 5 active members here... even excluding the site's own founder :D
PS: If you enjoyed Crater, I recommend you to try Mankind from the same creator too! It's really awesome d(^^,)

Probably some promo videos on youtube or game trailers would be cool.

M2 is a cool game. It's just that nothing on this forum has been more important than playing it over lan with friends =)

But yeah, I might do somethin.

Oh, Mantis, good to see you active.
I was wondering, do you happen to know where James is? I haven't seen any activity from him in like... half a year? (except his possible subtle hint :p)

Sorry for sorta-offtopic post.

Hey, welcome to the forums! Unfortunately, common video recording programs (like FRAPS) do not work on Meteor 2. Your idea of MODDB is great. PS: Did you try my mod? (Naval Wars) I made it when I was really young. :p
I was known as Naval War before.
I love and mod Amnesia: The Dark Descent.

Camstudio works fine though.

don't use cam studio.
be a professional, and get windows media encoder.

It's free and pro. just remember to use windowed mode for meteor 2 =)

Now get me your epic videos!!

Windows? That's... Microsoft! D:

EDIT: Oh, seems like Meteor 2 is getting some attention again thanks to this plan. Yay! (^^,)
But I see there's only 1 mod in their archive. Post the other ones there too! To show what a great potential this game has :)

Anti-Microsoft talk isn't really appreciated in the forums.

You'll find windows media encoder to be the program that's used worldwide by video encoding and streaming professionals. Get it now!

Well ok, let me express it a bit softer then. I don't wanna be anti to those who don't want me to be, so select the white space down here.
I once tried WME about 2 years ago I think, and I was not at all satisfied. In fact I was happy I finally managed to complete my movie after a quite bumpy ride. Really professional and such. :p
But ok, that is a personal opinion, and after all tastes differ. (^^,):choc

WME takes lots of know how to make it work, so it's not the user friendly package that everybody might wish for.

HOWEVER, I put Ravagers of Time on ModDb.
