    Original Post:

    I decided to do an Oblivion let's play. I know there have been others, but I just wanted to do a straight-up, no mods breakneck run through the game. First, I need to find a good screenshot program. Zscreen does not seem to work right, and I am having problems with the builtin screen grabber. Does anyone have any good suggestions?[/img]

    Re: Let's Play Oblivion - the adventure of Snails

    What problems? That's one of the few things working as intended in the base game.

    I'm interested, if you make it entertaining - previous LPs diluted the original suck with thousands shitty mods.

    Try to make a furry character - you know that Codex loves furries. :P

    More problems

    Okay, I am having problems with the builtin screen capture program. I followed the instructions here, but no screenshots show up. Are there any other good free screenshot programs besides those mentioned above? What have other people used?

    Have you read the "common mistakes" section at the bottom?

    And you have edited the ..\My Documents\My Games\Oblivion\Oblivion.ini? And check the game's root directory for screenshots?

    I find it quite unbelievable.

    I'd just use fraps.


    That way you can use AA and stuff-the Ing-game SS function is more trouble than it's worth for the end result.

    Photobucket for me.
    420x or 800x size. I like Ghostdog's LP format. Increased font sized.

    Aren't you tired of all this faggotry? Too much Oblivion on these boards. It won't be fun.

    Unmodded Oblivion LP was never done on these boards. The LP we had quickly degenerated into "lol masterchief with gunblaed" and ceased to be interesting.
    Given that the hardest part (actually playing through the damn thing without succumbing to brain haemorrhage) has been successfully completed and Oblivion with decent writeup has much hilarity potential due to it's concentrated suck, I forsee a bright future before this thread.

    Too bad that the OP didn't do the burning Kvatch detour - leaving the burning city to complete a guild or two, then returning - that would be lulzy.

    Well, I left the Kvatch knights in the chapel until I needed their help closing the Great Gate, so that is pretty close.

    Prologue: The Journey Begins

    Prologue: The Journey Begins

    [​IMG]

    Here we see Oblivion starting up.

    [​IMG]

    Apparently 2kGames is involved.

    [​IMG]

    Wow! Both Bethesda Softworks and Bethesda Game Studios are involved!

    [​IMG]

    As the man said, don't copy that floppy!

    [​IMG]

    Apparently, this is the fourth Elder Scrolls game.

    [​IMG]

    Livi? Who is Livi?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Oh! Oblivion! I get it now! Well, let's hit New shall we?

    [​IMG]

    You'll be seeing this screen a lot!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Captain's Log: Stardate ....

    Wrong game!

    [​IMG] I am a captain of a starship not a video game character

    ORLY?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] That game was shit! It doesn't count!

    Anyway....

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] I was born 87 years ago.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] For 65 years I have ruled as Tamriel's Emperor.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] But for all these years, I've never been the ruler of my own dreams.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] I have seen the gates of Oblivion. Beyond which no waking eye may see.

    [​IMG] Except, you know, anyone who ventures into an Oblivion gate. Or Mankar Camoran. Just saying.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Behold, in darkness, a doom sweeps the land.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Not that Doom, retard.

    [​IMG] This doom.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Oh that doom!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] This is the 27th of Last Seed, the year of Akatosh 423.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] These are the closing days of the Third Era, and the final hours of my life.

    I must admit that the music is really stirring at this point.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    What an intro! Let's see if the actual game can hold up. :roll:

    We finally get to the character creation screen. Here is our protagonist:

    [​IMG]

    Everyone say hi to Snails!

    [​IMG] Yo.

    What adventures await Snails? Find out next time!
