lookin good some small notes:

- posted in the wrong section ;)
- maybe record your voice a bit louder, its really hard to understand if you are already on maximum volume
- record in higher quality because sometimes its neccessary to see some file names etc and switching to fullscreen gets me a blurred screen

Thanks.

Next time I think ill narrate over the video afterwards instead of talking while recording through Fraps.

Do you know of any good recording software?
Ive seen some screen capture videos where they're able to zoom into the mouse pointer and back out into full screen.

Just uploaded some new videos, this time I used Camtasia to record and edit and uploaded in 720 HD. Videos are much more clear and easier to hear.

You newest videos look great! The only thing I'd add to the OP is a bit about what TPaint does and how to set it up (in your map's folder, for example).

But yeah, great job!

Edit: Or add a link to the BF2 Paint text tutorial: https://www.realitymod.com/forum/f189-modding-tutorials/58863-tool-bf2-tpaint.html

is it possible to edit the colourbig file and have that be loaded into your map? Or am I just being stupid :P
