    Awhile back we originally had a decently sized and active thread/post for this same competition. Unfortunately due to previous complications we have lost that certain post and are wanting to renew this creative idea.

    WHAT ARE THE PRIZES?
    • 1ST: $200.00 USD CASH
    • 2ND: 10,000 DONATION COINS
    • 3RD: 5,000 DONATION COINS


    WHAT ARE THE RULES?
    • You must upload the video to YOUTUBE with the name "Ultima Online Forever PvP 2015". If it does not have this name, it will not be admissible to the competition.
    • You must reply on this thread with your video link.
    • It must be a recent video, recorded within the last 30 days.
    • It must be 720p quality or higher.

    WHAT DO I RECORD THOUGH?
    Any and ALL player vs player interaction/combat.
    It happens non stop on Ultima Online Forever, so we look forward to seeing some really great ones.



    WHAT DO I USE TO RECORD?

    You can ask around, there are various programs.
    One that has been mentioned is "FRAPS": http://www.fraps.com/

    More free recording program links to come soon.


    GUIDELINES (Thanks MindScream)
    1.) Objective is to show the current UOF PVP State, PK, Anti-PK, Factions etc.
    2.) Clean Display of UO client
    3.) 720p or above quality
    4.) Length of video does not matter
    5.) Song rules: Any song you want.
    6.) Client Preference: RAZOR or UOSTEAM.
    7.) Voice is fine in the video.
    8.) Try not to SPEED up the video. Edit it, or record only the best parts.

    I will be using these videos for a patched together sequence video of around 10 minutes long to promo PvP. PvP is doing great right now, but i'm thinking ahead a bit here to keep it that way.


    Good Luck!
    Video's will be used in a future promotional video for Player VS Player combat on Ultima Online Forever.

    I aswell would like to know when the deadline is for this.. I'm already gathering material & producing atleast ONE video for this contest. Might make even few of them depending of the deadline. Also, who will decide the winner? Does the lenght of the video effect? I'll try to make around 10min long video of PvP having alot of diff fights in it.

    Allow me to be the first entry.

    I would have put my normal music on there but after feedback, I went for something a little darker.

    Be sure to watch in 720p HD. Enjoy:


    ** Now re-uploaded to crop the desktop out -- kinda fucked up the resolution but whatever.... you wanted it **

    1) if the name of the videos - Ultima Online Forever PvP 2015
    2) give new players a chance\time to pump skills to pvp
    3) it takes time : to record a video content, create a good story, create good animation
    4) reward is good, respectively want - better quality video and bitter struggle for reward
    based on the listed, i think minimum - six months, and may be up to December :rolleyes:

    can be done - even in 10 minutes! ) just how interesting and better these creations?
    ...I expressed my opinion - I think if the period is longer, the more promotional clips will be created (this will help the project)

    Strong competition - improves the content and skills to create them (this is also a positive thing)

    the Fear that someone (will have time) to do a better job than you - is it a challenge to creativity?)
    Only greed :D

    I think i'd like to extend this for awhile ultimately.

    Also try to capture your video of just the "uo" window. If you see Ansem's submission it shows his entire desktop... It is kind of potato quality, and for editing myself it is kind of null.

    Try to capture Just the ULTIMA ONLINE window / game play box and nothing else.

    Previous submissions, as much as i want to accept them, i don't think is totally fair since PvP has been altered, and factions has been revamped since then.

    The reason the prizes are so large is because of the previous competition failure that was deleted due to certain issues.

    I want to make sure this is legitimate, and am 100% hands on with this project.

    Shane could you please hit us up with some guide lines?

    1.) Objective is to show the current UOF PVP State, PK, Anti-PK, Factions etc.
    2.) Clean Display of UO client
    3.) 720p or above quality
    4.) Length of video 10 mins too long? 1 min to short? does it matter?
    5.) Song rules (remember, most people base their work off a song, once uploaded to Youtube if it breaks their rules the song will have to be changed/removed. what are those ground rules? (I'm not sure myself)
    6.) Client Preference? UOS, Razor, Salos? does it matter?
    7.) Voice ok? (People speaking on Vent etc)

    Can anyone else think of anything? I know you're a marketing guy so I figured you might have a few things in mind that you'd like to see come out of these videos, and for us that are able to do so would like to be sure we're hitting your vision a bit while also being creative and free to do what ever in the video.

    or just do what ever and let the cards fall as they may?

    Thanks!
