Since the PSP port is now about to be complete, I thought it might attract a few people that do not come from the gameboy/LSDj background and that it was time to start something I’ve been putting off for too long, writing video tutorials. Although a great way to communicate, doing videos is always a bit of a hassle and I didn’t want to show my wobbely hands in front of a camera that I don’t have while mumbling supposedly valuable information with my thick french accent. So I built a special version of the windows piggy that displays a GP2X (designed by UI) and gives feedback about what button is getting pressed. Combined with a good screencaster, the result is clear enough to be understandable once dumped on vimeo.
The last part, not having me talking, was done using the mac speech synthetiser (thanks jonbro for the help) which has fairely good result.
Once all of that planned, writing scripts and doing the videos became a breeze, so I’m all over it now. Here’s an example. I’ll had quite a few more in the coming days, so watch that vimeo account
PS: Yeah, I know, there’s a really ugly huge reverb
