One of my subscribers was kind enough to send me a Dazzle recording device. I also have some free software, and I have been talked into getting this game so guess I might as well do something with it.

Im considering doing both SP and MP videos. MP videos would be my old style, just highlights and such.

SP videos... well I am only at sequence 2 atm in Havana, is there any sort of challenge you would like to see me do? Im considering doing some Ghost Runs but have yet to find a stage worthy of it.

Finally, I might also go back and do some ACB Borgia Tower videos, I have a new YT channel and wanna make some classic vids for it.

[insert jealous smiley here] That's great! Also great you plan to go back to one of the older games. You came at a good time, there's a rarely seen Stabby chat this Friday.

Have never been in those, il check it out.

So im noticing a lack of videos on this site for AC4, im guessing its due to main assassinations not being so prominent in the series anymore?

I suggest we look for the next best thing. Im also liking how the game design seems to have gotten more... "gamey", its like its gone back to its AC2 roots.

Hi Jack. Glad to hear you plan to record new videos.

I have recorded the Borgia Tower series in this year (in addition main memory two captain), but I'm not doing well, especially in those early parts. Please check these videos, I hope it can give you some inspiration, and expect you will making much better videos for us.

In these videos I tried to do some stunts and stealth but no specific rule. About the stealth challenge, I had taken several kinds styles, they have in common is not to use secondary weapons.

Nice to have you back, Jack.

Another memory that's great for Ghosting is "Nothing Is True..." in Sequence 4 (still trying to get it done, there is ONE guard that gives me an insane amount of trouble).

Not sure if you've heard of Whistle Trick (or if the rest of THB has, even) but it might help you. I discovered this accidentally a while ago.

When you Whistle out of a Stalking Zone (or any hiding spot, but Stalking Zones are the best because you can exit them the quickest) and a nearby guard hears it, he'll go into a 0.5~ish-second long animation where he looks around for a bit (his "What Was That Noise?" animation). During those 0.5 seconds, you can pass right in front of his face and his SSI won't trigger at all. Even in Restricted Areas, where being in Line of Sight at all = instant Desynch, you can just sprint right in front of them. It's a very tight time window, but it is practical in some situations (namely, I use it a lot in my run of "Nothing Is True...")

I'll put up a video soon. Won't be the greatest quality, but it should showcase exactly what I'm talking about.

This is so handy, yet so overpowered. Just look at any of my AC4 videos and there's probably at least 2 times I use it in any given situation.

Invite me to any multiplayer matches and we'll have some fun. ;D

I wanted to take out that winky face, but it looks creepy either way.

It's probably also because the people who usually post videos didn't get it right away. I'll be honest, I don't think a pirate theme is right for AC, and trust me, that's the polite way of saying it. But of course my opinion will also be based on what people, especially the in depth players who love AC almost religiously, say about it.

That's both funny and great. An exploit found already! Hmm, I wonder if it works on those supposedly insane guards that detect you on sight. That would be very embarrassing for Ubi. Shy

Nice I might check these out, did you happen to see any of my old vids on these same targets, on my old YT channel? I had a lot of fun with these targets.

Yes, I had previously watched your videos, although my memory is not clear enough. I remember that you seem to take an Air Assassination by parachute on Ferdinando, right?

Something like that, I also found ways to duplicate one of the captains, I might redo those stages because they are fun and I have forgotten a lot of my videos.

Not sure where to post this:

A video I just uploaded; one of my better "nail-biting" Deathmatch sessions that I win by 25 points...

Ok I have tried making MP videos for this game but my capture software makes it very laggy, its unwatchable. So I might do a few Ghost Run missions with the HUD off, any recommendations or requests as to which missions I should ghost run?

I am on sequence 6 so anything up to then would be awesome for now, but feel free to leave mission names of later missions that you think would work out well.

Getting the Jackdaw with minimal ship-mast use would be amazing.

Cool il check it out. Currently wrestling with my video software atm though, it is becoming a mission just to record the simplest thing. I might also be posting multiplayer videos frequently once I finally get this all sorted.
