Hey I was wondering maybe add more categories under this section? So far we have stuff like stealth and blitz, maybe add a section for videos that contain Mysterious Deaths, Eagle strikes/Dives, "Silent" Videos ( where all targets are killed beforehand) and maybe tripwire videos that are coming up now

I agree, maybe add a category for waypoint separation too?

Thanks to SBIzokronus for the fantastic sig!

I was thinking the same thing. I noticed that ac1 had catergories for assassination styles like punching bag and turkey shoot, but ac2 didn't have those catergories.

Yeah it will be a lot of work going through each video to see which ones have which style, and some categories will only have a few. Maybe do them one at a time, like once we get say 5 tripwire videos make a category for when you wanna kill time.

As for collection I have finally got around to the codex page video but I just want to know, does anyone remember how many codex pages you gotta collect? I have a feeling I may have missed one, or rather collected one early in the game. I started the video with 14/30

Speaking of styles, I was wondering if there could be different kinds of blitzes. For example I think there were anonymous blitzes for ac1, but for ac2 I also had something else in mind. The recent blitzes for ac2 were made possible by exploits (in other words cheating) that are faster than the original ones. So what if we had catergories for blitzes based on whether or not you killed the target normally or by using exploits? (there are a bunch of exploits to use, such as preassassinating guards to remain undetected, airwalking, and super/hyperblend)

Done. I've also added Acre and Rome to locations, and a new submenu called By contract. It will take awhile to get all the front page videos retagged. Please bear with us.

So far we have stuff like stealth and blitz...

We created these categories before AC2 came out and were unsure if things like Eagle Strike and Turkey Shoot would even be possible. That's why we stuck to the basics. Of course we never imagined assassination styles like Tripwire and There is no Spoon.

I've already taken care of Acre, Rome, and contract tags (I think). Everyone is free to retag their own front-page stories for assassination styles used. Otherwise, Ian and I will get around to all of them eventually.

Please use the most specific tag(s) available. If it's a Silent or Mysterious Death, don't use the Stealth tag. Likewise if it's an Eagle Strike, don't use the Air to Assassinate tag (unless the video contains one of each). Variety Pack videos demonstrate multiple assassination styles. Hold down the control key to select more than one tag.

Nice I had no idea you added by contract there.

I have every contract documented but not all of them are front paged, most of them were made before I learned many exploits. Il get round to updating some of the best ones I did later
