I just checked for widelands on youtube and the best I found was the promotion video from GunChleoc for R19 :\ At least I found it in several Languages :-).

Do we have contact to some of those "influencers" / professional "lets players" we could ask to produce some teasers / lets plays for the upcoming R20?.

Who has access to our offical widalnds channel?
I do have a youtube channel and could post them there but my scope currently is elsewhere: Attention commercial Ad: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCHHf08zkQGFasRqgyznCC-A

And you see I normally dont do screencasts, yet.

That said, if nobody else speeks up I mitgh invest some time into recording and editiing some lets plays. (If I start earning any money, I will give it back to this project, of cause face-smile.png )

Nice hobby face-smile.png

SirVer gave me access to the official channel. I don't hang out on YouTube - it might be a good idea to do some more wide-spread promotion though after Widelands comes out.

OK here is my first Video, German for now. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VmHs3D9vYEc This viedo is not public yet.

please check if this is OK or it must me improved: * I have two different mics, please check which one you think is better * I already have a glitch, feel free to find it :-) * I will have to limit the videos to about 20 Minutes (I had to register my Account to mke ths visible) * Upload took almost 1,5 hours another reason to limti it. * This is 720p, so I started widelands with --xres=1280 --yres=720 * I added the music later, so it may not be just the same as actually in the game. * Feel free to add comments here or on youtube.

I like it. Use the microphone that is louder, the voice is hard to hear on the other one.

Very nice face-smile.png I like the voice and the casual art of describing things.

It's really difficult to explain all the available options without confusing new players. But i have to admit that i am always confused about such videos face-grin.png

Maybe split the video (or another video) into some sections with intermediate static screens? E.g. "Main menu", "Stock", "Roadbuilding", "Basic buildings", "Expand Territory", ... ?

OK made this more Professional now with a Playlist, Hints ant the End etc. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCHHf08zkQGFasRqgyznCC-A

And the third one actually stops with a cliffhanger face-smile.png

Statistics show me one female visitor from the UK, I have a hunch who that might have been face-smile.png

Now I only must hit the 1000 Visitors mark … this will be another story

Thanks. I'm surprised that you have to click buttons twice - are you sure that it's not just a delay until the next screen will come up?

I'd like to have the buttons change visual state immediately after the register the click, but it's not trivial to implement

About cliking twice: First click activates the WIndow, after that Widelands own GUI kicks in. At least on OSX.
