Only 3 days remain for the WarPlan's release, so better starting the engines. In the meantime, we have something for you.

We have prepared a series of tutorials, meant to guide you through all the details and mechanics, to give you a precise picture of how well balanced and deep the game is.

The first two tutorials to go cover the Map and the Menu.


Map and Menu - Part I

Map and Menu - Part II

Looking great!




leftydad -> RE: WarPlan - 3 Days to Release, have a look at the tutorials (10/21/2019 3:35:44 PM)

The narrator of the tutorials has a nice-sounding voice, but his extremely odd inflections of the spoken words makes it very difficult often to understand what he's saying. It's like he's using a phony British dialect with muffled consonant sounds. Just wishing that the tutorials had an audio that didn't require work to listen to.

OK, so it's not just me.

Counting the minutes until release!

Great tutorials. But same here about oral comprehension, a little bit difficult for me. I'm spanish and I have one ear in front of the other [:D]




gwgardner -> RE: WarPlan - 3 Days to Release, have a look at the tutorials (10/21/2019 5:50:22 PM)

Quite well done in all regards, for me. The narrator was just in a hurry, trying to get over a lot of material in a short time. Perfick.




leftydad -> RE: WarPlan - 3 Days to Release, have a look at the tutorials (10/21/2019 5:59:48 PM)

I don't want to be overly negative, but that's how the narrator always speaks on his YouTube videos. Not hurried. His other videos are really good, but I just wish it wasn't such a struggle to listen to his lisping or whatever it is. Count Dracula???

Looking forward to the game, and there are several other "first look" videos out about the game that are very good.




AndrewKurtz -> RE: WarPlan - 3 Days to Release, have a look at the tutorials (10/21/2019 6:04:18 PM)

Only took me a little time and I had no issue, and the content was great.




Michael T -> RE: WarPlan - 3 Days to Release, have a look at the tutorials (10/21/2019 11:26:34 PM)

Nice, far more useful than those early video's.

And the game looks great.




FroBodine -> RE: WarPlan - 3 Days to Release, have a look at the tutorials (10/22/2019 12:18:30 AM)

These tutorials are great, I'm sure, but please next time get a narrator that can enunciate his words much, much more clearly. I am constantly having to rewind just to understand the words he is saying. This is very frustrating.

But, I REALLY do appreciate that you created these video tutorials. Just think about making them easier to understand. It really brings the quality down.

And, for Pete's Sake (whoever Pete is), SLOW down when you're talking. You already have trouble enunciating your words, and when you talk fast, it just becomes a jumble of words that I can't understand.

For example, in the first tutorial video, at 3:30, I have absolutely no idea what he is saying about air units attacking, even after replaying that section many, many times. Please - what is he saying here?




Michael T -> RE: WarPlan - 3 Days to Release, have a look at the tutorials (10/22/2019 12:29:14 AM)

He just needs to slow down a tad, he is rushing through it.

Really???

"Air units have an additional red lit hex indicating targets they may attack dependent on their mission"




rtoolooze -> RE: WarPlan - 3 Days to Release, have a look at the tutorials (10/22/2019 4:02:39 AM)

leftydad, I almost can't stop laughing at "Count Dracula???" I get what you mean and that's freakin funny! Not being mean and I really do appreciate his efforts tho.

Yes, really. Why would I write this I really didn't have an issue? All I could understand after multiple listens was, "Air units have an additional red lit hex wahh wahh wahh wahh".

Thank you for the translation! [:)]




sol_invictus -> RE: WarPlan - 3 Days to Release, have a look at the tutorials (10/22/2019 3:21:21 PM)

Out of curiosity, what region of Britain would his accent originate?




leftydad -> RE: WarPlan - 3 Days to Release, have a look at the tutorials (10/22/2019 3:48:11 PM)

South Yorkshire.

Thanks. It sounds English but an odd unfamiliar sort of English.




Meteor2 -> RE: WarPlan - 3 Days to Release, have a look at the tutorials (10/22/2019 5:17:48 PM)

These videos are far better than the month-old ones!
But yes, it is a little bist of work to follow the vocal descriptions, as I am not a nativ speeker.
Have a look a YT videos from a guy named Paradogs Gamer, who made a lot of SC3 videos.
A pleasure to follow....[:)]
Otherwise War Plan is a Must Buy for me...

Good point! And glad to translate it:)




Uxbridge -> RE: WarPlan - 3 Days to Release, have a look at the tutorials (10/23/2019 7:20:45 PM)

Being a Swede, I may have more problems hearing what the narrator says, than that of native speakers, but there's a lot that I just can't "translate", despite repeated passes. So I line-up with those slightly disappointed.

That said, however, are you sure this is actually a real person? Sounds more like a robot. I have been listening intently to certain words, and think he says them in exactly the same way each time they come up. Listen to the word "Advancements" in the same video. I'm a writer and use robots to listen to my own texts. It sounds very much like this, not just the talk in itself, but also the exact time-space between each sentence.

But I'm not sure.




sol_invictus -> RE: WarPlan - 3 Days to Release, have a look at the tutorials (10/23/2019 7:30:01 PM)

I am an American so I sorta speak English and I have trouble at times understanding him. I can only imagine how difficult it is for a non-native speaker. in fact, over the last couple of days I have watched a few videos from English people and I have trouble understanding most of them. I don't know how else to explain it but their speaking sounds slurred and lazy or sleepy if that makes any sense. It does take effort.




Curious -> RE: WarPlan - 3 Days to Release, have a look at the tutorials (10/25/2019 5:59:51 AM)

I'm going to have to give up (at least temporarily). I can't play the game if I can't learn to play the game. I can't learn to play the game without tutorials that are completely understandable. The way the tutorials are now I can understand half of the narrative (at best). A printed copy/transcript of the tutorial narrative is absolutely necessary as far as I'm concerned. This is very frustrating.

You donít really need those, just play the game itís extremely intuitive. The mechanics are vastly simple to learn. The depth is in the strategic way to play it. There is no tutorial for that, that comes from the creative part of your brain.




Curious -> RE: WarPlan - 3 Days to Release, have a look at the tutorials (10/25/2019 7:38:28 AM)

Thanks, I'll give it another shot tomorrow. I hope you're right. It's $40 down the drain if things don't work out.




zakblood -> RE: WarPlan - 3 Days to Release, have a look at the tutorials (10/25/2019 7:59:52 AM)

must admit i wasn't on the beta, had other projects on the go, so gave it a miss tbh, but got it yesterday and already i'm quite a way in and agree with Zovs tbh, if you have played any other counter moving game, you will or should be able to pick this up and play straight away and learn from playing, i have, and i'm useless at most games and still use the non nato counters, which make it much more playable for the beginners like me, once you have a few battles under your belt, it's as easy as any of the other counter moving games, and nowhere near as hard as WITE or west for that matter, then again i'm starting to now find both of those more playable as the update are making it more so




tucsonbandit -> RE: WarPlan - 3 Days to Release, have a look at the tutorials (10/25/2019 10:53:41 AM)

Sorry, not a big deal but can anyone tell me what he says from 3:47 to 3:51 in the supply video below? I have listened to it like 15 times and I can't figure it out, most of the time I can figure it out based on the context, but here I can not..

I would link to the video but the website is not letting me






Toby42 -> RE: WarPlan - 3 Days to Release, have a look at the tutorials (10/25/2019 2:06:51 PM)

Have you tried turning on the captions?




OxfordGuy3 -> RE: WarPlan - 3 Days to Release, have a look at the tutorials (10/25/2019 8:26:04 PM)

I guess, being British (English even), I have an advantage and don't have much problem following the narrator, although his accent is a little unusual and I do find him a little fast in places. It could be worse, at least he's not Glaswegian or Geordie! :-)

As Toby42 said, don't forget you can display captions. I'm used to turning subtitles on for some US films and TV programmes.

ah, good, idea. Thanks. I also figured it out eventually by listening more, but your suggestion is better. Anyway, I am done with the tutorials, and have parsed them all..

thanks!!
