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

I have the same behavior on Windows.

Oh, you mean after the program has been removed from focus? I guess that's just how the operating system handles it.

OK, I have a complet list of 6 viedos at his playlist by noew https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCHHf08zkQGFasRqgyznCC-A/playlists Using Landlord as wincondition was not very exiting WIdelands Games tend to last quite long (at least the way I like them) this makes several 20 Minute episodes for a complete Game. * I currentyl have only very few visitors.

Please advice me:

  • Should I continue with an Imperial campain in German?
  • Shoul I drop my hints about developer related things?
  • Should I switch to english to attract more people?
  • Should I try to limit every epirosd to perhpas 3 clips of about 20 Minutes.?
  • Should I try to highligt some apects of Widelands only, instaed of complete games?

Here are the widelands where people may dwell, walking around care that evrythings well.

I don't think so. On Youtube there are already tons of lets-play-widelands-videos, including campaings, but I couldn't find any tournament match there. (!) Entertaining videos about Widelands are very rare. But the fact that the speed of replays is very flexible leads to possibilities to create entertaining videos. For example tournament videos, or you could also make a video about that one match which we played recently face-wink.png

  • Shoul I drop my hints about developer related things?

If they are interesting, why not. As a Youtuber who is developer of Widelands at the same time, you seem to be unique.

  • Should I switch to english to attract more people?

I think so. Or you find someone who creates english subtitles for you, which you could add on the youtube-video somehow (on youtube directly, i guess).

  • Should I try to limit every epirosd to perhpas 3 clips of about 20 Minutes.?

Yes, or you could make even shorter videos. Videos of 5 minutes or less are usually much more nice-to-watch then longer videos...

  • Should I try to highligt some apects of Widelands only, instaed of complete games?

If you don't want to make a video about a multiplayer match: Maybe. At least the video could be short face-smile.png

The hardest thing is here about typing everything that was told. So first step: German subtitles.

The seconds step: translating, I think that there is a couple of people who can do that. I would be in.

even a short match at widelands lasts for over one hour, I doubt many people would want to look that if they are not hooked first. unfortunately, i don't know how to fix that much. but changing the speed to focus on some important moments could be a good idea.

Why not? I'd like it if your videos would contain more action and tempo. That would be more entertaining...
