      Title (optional)

      1 year ago

      Guess this is my 2014 wrap up journal of sorts. The fact that it's late is actually quite fitting as time constraints have been the bane of my existence. Anyway...

      Family
      The kids are growing up fast (as cliche as that is) and a byproduct of that is they do more things and go more places. This is great! It takes much more of my time, but spending it with them is always worth it. Watching them grow, learn, and overall become more independent... And most importantly, we are almost done with changing diapers. I don't think I'll ever have full use of my nose again.

      Work
      At the end of 2013 I finally got approval to work from home. This may seem like the best thing ever, and it kinda is. However this wasn't just for convenience or extra video game/goofing off time. I work for a small business and the owner was getting ready to retire. I was to take over running the company when he did. Did I mention that the company was run out of his house. See where this is going? Fast forward to mid 2014, the owner retired and I took over. Everything was all set up here by this point and things have been going well. The hours can be quite long some days but I do almost nothing on other days, so it's balanced. I'm happy with it, even if I am tired more often. It's mostly stress free work.

      Everything Else
      With what time I do have left most of it is spent on them video games things. With the new generation of consoles I've gone back to mostly playing PC. This is something that I tend to do every generation. I can never justify the price for new hardware when there are so few games to play, and the fact that everything that is getting released is broken doesn't help. But that is an argument for another day. I keep saying I'm going to start making more videos again, but that always seems to fall back on the shelf due to other tasks that demand my attention. Although, I have committed to one right now... You'll see it in about 3 weeks :) Most of my video type effort/time has been in streaming, this is because it's easier and takes allot lets time with more interaction with the viewers. The rest of my existence can be summed up with eating, sleeping, bodily functions.

      The only thing I don't like about everything is that I don't get to talk to my friends much anymore.

      Daddy's Little Helper

      1 year ago

      I guess there is a reason we called him Ray Jr. after all. Ever since he could crawl he always wanted to watch Daddy do work around the house. As he has grown he even yells at me to "help" turn the screwdriver or hold the nails for me. Well today I was changing my oil, went to get a rag and this happened

      My Setup

      1 year ago

      This will be a cross post from this thread. But I figured some of you might be interested as well...

      My setup has been evolving over the years and as such has expanded to take up a fair bit of room. It's built to provide an all-in-one experience. Home theater/entertainment system as well as gaming, editing, and streaming suite. This is all set up on one wall in my basement so the lighting for pictures isn't the best.

      MlhbaiU.jpg
      At the core we have my surround sound receiver with 7.1. Games I'm currently playing normally end up here too. The rest get tucked in a drawer until needed. 2 360s, an Xbox and an N64 are currently set up on top of my front tower speakers.

      LhrLmDK.jpg
      My console gaming is done on a 50" with a set of Tritton AX Pro and recorded with the old standard, the Happauge HD PVR

      g1g7nyu.jpg
      My desk is next in line with an amazing amount of wires tying these three stations together. For post commentary and general voice recording needs I use a Blue Snowball c/w pop-filter. For my listening and PC gaming needs I have a Sharkoon headset (new addition to setup as of yesterday).

      JG9rUz3.jpg
      The desk itself is a nice size, after making a few modifications as my setup evolved. and I run a 2 monitor setup with a 22" primary and 19" slave. Add a Dragon War gaming mouse and some basic speakers for when I'm not running the sound to my TV setup or headphones and that will bring us to the heart of the operation

      BI0NOq5CYAAFKlR.jpg:large
      My custom built tower. I7 3770K, 16Gig ram, and 2.5 TB of storage over 3 HDDs to separate out the drive workload for different situations and maximizing frame rates and minimizing frame drop for both recording and rendering

      Hey bioHRay quick community hunter question: how old can a game for a guide or walk through be? I was thinking about recording sly Cooper collectibles.

        It can be as old as you want. If you want to do it, go for it

      Hey man, I was just wondering, with Community Hunter, what do you guys actually like to see submitted and what things annoy you when they get submitted, or basically, regular pitfalls that you seem to receive and how can one avoid them?

      • macklaw

        1 year ago

        Thanks for the quick reply, and yeah, had a look at the rules, and seem fairly easy to follow. I look forward to submitting for you guys

      • BioHRay

        1 year ago

        The short answer is follow the rules. You have no idea how many videos get submitted that don't even follow the basics.

    • Tathy Vox Machina

      Caleb tells me you're one of the operators of @CommunityHunt, so I thought I'd run this by you. How would you feel about tweeting out new CH videos the way @AchievementHunt does, even just a few with the highest view count by the end up the week, perhaps? I realize that's quite a commitment, so I'd be glad to help with it. Just a thought!

      • Tathy Vox Machina

        1 year ago

        Okay cool, I gotcha.

      • BioHRay

        1 year ago

        Yes, I'm the only operator of the CommunityHunt account. It's designed for information and news, not individual videos. About the only thing that might apply is the Community Video of the Week, but since that is already part of AHWU it seems a bit redundant to tweet that.

      Hey man I am having trouble trying to look at any forum threads. I click on the forums and it just says the page can't load. All of the forum pages do this. Any idea why this might be? I don't know who to ask about it, so I figured I'd search for the first Forum Mod I could find and ask them.

      • Clint

        2 years ago

        Thanks man, I appreciate you responding, have a good one!

      • BioHRay

        2 years ago

        Really don't know what to say, make sure your browsers are up to date and see if there are any security features blocking you. Other then that you would need to speak to someone that knows more about this type of thing, like Adam or Ben maybe

      • Clint

        2 years ago

        Now I am trying to put a support ticket in and I am getting an error after I hit submit that says, "That thing you just asked for? I couldn't find it. Sorry!" That comes up on the page and my ticket doesn't submit. I even tried submitting different versions of my text in the ticket to see if that worked, and no dice!

        So now I am just feeling very put-off of the forums in general, and have no idea who to contact or what to try next.
        I hope your day is going well other than reading my utterly useless "why can't I forum" woes.

      • Clint

        2 years ago

        Thanks, I was going to do that next, just thought I'd ask somebody with more forum knowledge than myself first! Have a great day man!

      • BioHRay

        2 years ago

        Ya, not allot to go on. I'd suggest making a support ticket Give as much information as you are able to about your problem

      • Clint

        2 years ago

        I have tried using chrome (my default browser) and am on IE right now. I don't think I am in the beta, I didn't sign up for it or anything. It's been just not loading the forum pages when I click into them for a few days now, not really a specific thing with details to help troubleshooting, but it's all I've got.

      • BioHRay

        Everything seems to be working fine on my end. What browser are you using? also are you in the 2.0 beta for the site?

      Ray I was wondering if you could give me some advice for several interconnected issues I find myself in regarding two videos. I have two TTDI Minecraft videos nearly ready to be submitted but have run into an issue in where I don't have any footage of people actually demonstrating the TTDI's. I have tried multiple means of getting people to help but have yet to receive hardly any help even from the AH community. In the same regard I really believe that if the second commentator isn't someone who helped in the video there wouldn't be a need for one. However the rules state that for TTDI's I need a second commentator. Do you have any ideas of what I can do?

      • BioHRay

        Well considering it's PC maybe check out the groups for a Minecraft group that is active to try and round up some people there... Most of the community hunters are on Xbox

      Could you help me record a video for a possible Let's Play for the AH guys?
      It's a Minecraft map that I made, but I don't have any way to record it. (I don't have a capture card)

      • BioHRay

        yes

        I think I got it....

        2 years ago

        When I do this for people, all I do is record the footage and send it to you. So you will need to be about to put the intro and end-slates and a commentary on it to submit it

      • FluffyHusky

        2 years ago

        But, to answer your question, I have a microphone.
        Unless you count Movie Maker, I don't have any editing software...

        Oh, um, the only thing I have that can record is my webcam, but I will get in trouble with my mom if I use it >.<

      Hey BioHRay, quick question for you. I'm trying to submit a video for "Things to do in" for Minecraft and I read the FAQ's, but I'm still not sure where to submit it. The Upload page asks for an achievement, but this isn't achievement related; should I just ignore that part or am I trying to submit it to the wrong page?

      • BioHRay

        3 years ago

        That is the right place. Just pick any achievement and make sure in the title you have"Things to do in". It will be corrected in the back end

        Hey so I've now cut down the video into two parts. First is 250MB, second is 262MB. But when i use the upload function, it keeps telling me connection is reset. Apparently not getting through.

        Fuckn hell!!! 15Mbps is far to high! 8max... most games look just great even in 4.5 (4,500kbts) so ya, that is your biggest problem right there. But all in all I'd also suggest making that into 2 videos not 1... allot going on there

        The final size is 1.3GB. The total video bitrate is 15574kbps.
        Rendered in HD.
