After a long time trying to figure out how to record the game-play footage of Advanced Tactics I hit upon a combination of software that allows me to do it effectively. :)

As such I've started a series of Let's Play videos. I hope you enjoy them. It's been a little while since I played Advanced Tactics and I'm a little rusty but it's a fun game none-the-less.

The Let's Play playlist is here:

Let's Play Advanced Tactics

The fist video is here:

Nice work. I dare not imagine the time necessary to make a video on a multiplayer game .
I'd really have time to make a video presentation as well turned on my mod.

A subscriber more for you .

Well done!
I sure could have used something like this a few years ago when just getting started in the game. Hopeful this will get some attention and attract new people to a great game and outstanding editor.

Hey Das123! I forgot my youtube account password and it was automatically logged in on my phone but I will say this here.

Your LPs are the best!!

I love your cool voice and the way you take your time in clearly explaining things and not leave the viewers hanging.

Please keep it up and I must say that you are the one that made me decide to get this game ASAP because of your lets play.

On an unrelated topic, I saw you did crusader kings 2, Please do an LP of HOI 3 once Their Finest Hour expansion comes out

Stumbeled upon your youtube vids, really great work.

I've been playing AT/ATG since years, thought I knew it all, but still not a good player. Still you taught me new aspects of the game. Thanks.

Thanks for the kind comments. :) And I'm glad if this helps in any way Vic. You've built a great game and it has been a 'staple diet' for any computer I've owned.

Here's the next episode...

Nice videos.

It sure does seem, though, that the AI has absolutely nothing to offer as far as power goes.  Why are they so weak? 
Even beyond the small opening, leading to the enemy territory (which has to be in supply), it looks like the AI has very little. I saw no artillery, no tanks, and no aircraft.

Will we see aircraft at all?

I think the issue was that the map was not one the AI could cope with well. I guess if I had not selected limited roads it would have had an easier job supplying troops.

Here's Episode 14

That is possible, certainly. Horses can push supply to units not connected by roads, can they not? I haven't seen one horse unit at all in your videos. Strange that the AI would have nothing but infantry and other similar units, with no tanks or artillery or engineers or aircraft. This failure to create anything but infantry is not the result of any inability (or reluctance) to build roads.

Seeing that you haven't created any aircraft, the AI could have caused some serious problems with air superiority.

The AI has done much better in games I have played against it. I guess the map does have something to do with it. Too bad, because plowing through without the least enemy resistance isn't that much fun.

Maybe also with only one AI to contend with it is a bit easier. Who knows.

Still, your videos are truly fantastic. ATG is a great game.

I think the AI had troubles largely because of the fragmented roads; the Stone Age and Slow Research settings; and the lack of other players. I really wanted a relatively quick game because of the video. :)

Thanks for you vids Das.
It has me appreciating the nuances of this game all the more.

Did a double take when your cat went after your dog, as mine has been at the new puppy all week.

Thank you. That was a great AAR/Tutorial watching you play. I bought the game after watching a few of these.

Poor dog sounds like he got the worse of it

Cheers. Never managed to spend any reasonable time playing the game. Just never felt like it, but maybe this'll help get me more interested.
