Can someone please put a video of each track from Fusion on youtube, whenever i look for any all i get on there is crap quality vids of some emulator, and yes, i am one of the very few who liked fusion. :paperbag:paperbag:paperbag

There is a member of this forum who says he will only do it if there is an outcry, so here it is.

Good quality videos of any Wipeout would be appreciated, I think.

The problem with youtube is the compression they use on all uploaded videos, it can turn a work of art into a rotting carcass.

23rd August 2007, 02:25 PM
yeh. the thing to do would be to ul a pretty good quality vdo then it'll be compressed to a 'normal' youtube quality.

That member of the forum may not be here still. I'm sorry, I don't own Fusion, I can't help you there. But I have noticed there aren't many Fusion vids on YouTube that aren't Florion Heights, the others seem to be missing. Actually, I would like to see some high speed videos of any Wipeout. I don't really think that there's much point in Wipeout at Vector and Venom. (Except to boost your gold medal count).

Uh, I might do some more WO videos with my webcam, but hmm, may have to bring the Playstation down to the computer for that to work. Except, my upstairs computer is being repaired soon, so I'll just use that. I could have a side by side video comparing WO1 PS and WO1 PC!!! The thought makes me drool! And with 2097 PS/2097 PC!

Are there any alternatives to YouTube around with better video compression quality?

I`m using dailymotion.com, which is better than YouTube but still Flash video. You can also upload longer videos and bigger files, which means potential better quality. There`s webfives.com, which I think allows you to stream WMV, but has a small space limit per user. here (http://www.internetvideomag.com/Articles-2006/110106_Movavi-VideoSiteGuide.htm) is a list of video hosting services I found.

You can also use a file download service such as rapidshare.com. Then you can encode the video in very high quality. Problem is that people will have to go through the hassle of downloading and your video files will expire after a while. Streaming sites are much more convenient.

I think Zargz has the answer. Video needs to be optimized for YouTube or Dailymotion type streaming at the initial compression stage, before uploading. Use the file types they recommend, and also record in the highest resolution you possibly can because it will show in the final result. But highly compressed video is never going to look great on something that moves quickly like a Wipeout game. Quite often things look very sharp on the start line, but as soon as the race starts the blockiness appears because of the keyframe intervals. It`s just the nature of compressed video. If you want to lose the blockiness you have to have more keyframes and a higher data rate, but then your video won`t stream anymore for most internet users.

Great vids, keep them coming :+

23rd June 2010, 04:00 PM
Mm nostaligia. If only fusion worked
properly on my PS3, keeps buggering up in the first tournament.

Loving the vids, top stuff :+

Thanks for the feedback! :)

More are on the way....

Cool !! you're on vohl square atm, my favorite set of tracks on fusion (despite it's a little bit dark ;)) :D

25th June 2010, 07:21 PM
Didn't know about that shortcut into the waterfall either :redface:

Edit: Or the one on Vohl Square, 2 Forward :redface::redface:

lol Albino you're insane :P I'd have jumped on this and lent you a hand if you wanted ;D I love Fusion

28th June 2010, 02:16 PM
:lol You're insane; you love Fusion but hate Pulse! :D
But yeah, Fusion's great fun. Nice vids AA, watched most of them now. :clap

28th June 2010, 03:52 PM
It's been quite some time since I played Fusion or watched videos of someone else playing it... Nice vids, good piloting even though you don't seem to use the fully upgraded version of the piranha ship there. You know what I like best about Wipeout Fusion vids? The total absence of barrel rolls! ;)

:lol You're insane; you love Fusion but hate Pulse! :D
But yeah, Fusion's great fun. Nice vids AA, watched most of them now. :clap

lol Well my biggest issue with Pulse is the fact that it just doesn't feel like a Wipeout game. It looks like a Wipeout game, it has ships and weapons like a wipeout game, and even the music has grown on me... but the gameplay is horrid. THere's something about the physics and the way the ships handle that I just can't get accustomed to, and it really breaks the game for me. I never once enjoyed playing it from the day I got it to whenever I packed up my PSP.

Fusion somehow still feels more like Wipeout for me than Pulse... Plus I logged a LOT of time with Fusion back in the day, so I've always just had fond memories :) (except for that one track on the moon or something with the orange flip panels... one spot would always drop me right through the track and I'd have to respawn... Rage.)

28th June 2010, 06:17 PM
I know what you mean with Pulse. It's not very "Wipeout", but I just enjoy it for what it is (and learning Pulse certainly didn't help me with the other games :lol). I wasn't a hardcore fan of the series, I just bought Pulse because I'd just bought a PSP and thought it looked like fun, and it was (still is)! :D
I did have Fusion years ago though, and also played the crap out of it. It was awesome. :)
Now that I've played all the Wipeout games, it seems to me that Fusion, Pulse and HD don't play like the others (which I also enjoy playing), but they're still great games IMO. Especially Pulse (the best). XD

@ AGWolf: I consider insanity a fine flattery. (just ad-libbed that now. I'll be here all week! :P )

Also, that venue you're referring to, Katmoda 12, will conclude my series and is the only venue I have nothing up for yet. I plan to at least upload the first couple tracks during this week (just started a chemistry lab...did a lecture course from May until now).

@ Tomahawk: Yea, I don't fully upgrade because I like Piranha's red and yellow livery (My favorite two colors! That's what attracted me to 'em in the first WO game I played, Wip3out). This isn't particularly hard for me (even in modes with weapons) since I always leave the Brake Force as low as possible. I'm probably misunderstanding the mechanics, but I thought low brake force meant less speed lost during turns! XD

Some ships however, either IMO look better in monochrome/4th form (EG-r you devilish thing! Feisar's not bad either...Xios' feels more Star Wars-ish to me than anything else, but I prefer it greatly over the previous 3), or don't lose too much color (Tigron mainly). Just picked my upgrade level and pilot for preference and fun...so far only Cubiss Float 3 and Vohl 2 Forward have felt more like chores! :)

@ Smad: Thanks! Although Pulse is also fun, IMO I think 3 is *THE BEST*. :P

That's exactly what lacks to make fusion my favorite wipeout ! :lol
