  1. These are videos captured from the Battleground Europe Game Monitor by xiper. The screen is captured every 5 minutes and then compiled into a movie covering the movement of the front lines and kills during the campaign. I had posted separate threads announcing the videos for [thread=247036]Campaign 47[/thread] and [thread=247437]Campaign 48[/thread]. From now on I'll announce availability of future video's in subsequent posts in this thread. Here is the Campaign 49 video. It is currently hosted on Microsoft's Skydrive. I'll see how that works out - at least it's free. During the Intermission I've removed the kill information from the data that I'm collecting and added the lines showing the organization of the brigades in the game.
  2. Campaign 72 Videos: qDFqFY6SGj0 Quick version y9cb4QKuHHI This campaign was the first in awhile where I have some gaps in the data collection. I also thought for awhile that my backup computer which usual duty is as an HTPC, bought the farm last week during the heat. It crapped out for awhile, and eventually recovered when it cooled off. The primary computer is a PIII sitting in the cool basement chugging along. I'm waiting for it to die. It keeps hinting that its going to keel over but it recovers (still using the original hard drives from when I bought it).

  15. I'll be uploading these videos to Youtube now that I've noticed that they are displayed in a higher resolution than they were when I first attempted to upload them. o-SAKtdGkOQ Campaign 47 First data capture attempts. There were a number of gaps in the data collection during the initial campaign captures. 2r6QqMSaZW0 Campaign 47-The Road to Koln The end of Campaign 47 at 6fps instead of 24.
  16. Campaign 60 is available.
  17. I capture the wallpapers generated by xiper's BEGM application (link on first post) once every 5 minutes. It's a small (but growing) autohotkey script that captures the files, and compresses them. After that I simply create the movies using Picasa. One week of video generally averages out to around 2000 map pictures (it doesn't always update every 5 minutes). It runs on an old 500MHz PIII machine, chugging along in the basement. During the flooding in the North East last weekend, it was still happily recording pictures on my workbench with 2 inches of water on the floor. Actually here's the current "about" text for the autohotkey script ------------------------------------------------------------------ BEGM Maps is designed to record a series of pictures of the Battleground Europe map so that the individual maps can be combined to create a video of the map movement during an entire Campaign. It uses the following resources to create the map files ---------------------------------------------------------- Wiretap - kfsone's Wiretap Battleground Europe data BEGM - The BEGM application by xiper ImageMagik - Used to convert the BEGM bmp file into a compressed jpg It records its information in the BEGM.ini file: ------------------------------------------------ [Directory] ImageMagik - location of ImageMagik convert.exe Location - location of the Wallpaper file generated by BEGM (change via menu) Conversion - location of the directory to place the jpg files into (change via menu) [Campaign] Update - Filename / Timestamp of last recorded picture (updated 1 per hour) CampaignPics - Number of jpg pictures accumulated Number - Current Battleground Europe Campaign compress - jpg compression level (change via menu) [Reset] resetTime - reset time in seconds (will restart computer if no new pictures recorded during this period of time) (change via menu) resets - number of resets recorded Reset# - Time stamps of each restart initiation [Version] programVersion Current Version number of this application [Format] - See Autohotkey documentation for allowable formatting f1 - Primary format string for Filename / Timestamp generation f2 - Secondary format string (placed at the end of f1 iff f2 is defined) f1update - To change the output format set the f1/f2 update values and f2update - use the UpdateFormat menu item How it works ------------ This application watches the BEGM wallpaper file waits for it to be updated. When that occurs ImageMagik is run to create a copy of the current map. The map update rate is controlled by the wallpaper update rate set in BEGM. Pressing the map update button in BEGM will generate multiple maps in quick succession. BEGM Maps records the last time the wallpaper was updated, and if the last update occurred longer than "resetTime" seconds ago, then the computer will be restarted (provides auto-restart for new campaigns-computer fault-BEGM faults)
  18. Campaign 59
  19. Here is a 6fps version of the recent Axis breakout. Campaign 59 - Axis Breakout Don't know what happened during this Campaign. I saw the breakout occurring and decided to go ahead and create a movie of it. What I found was Picasa had a number of my files in the wrong order, Wrong timestamps, Time data in the exif or xmp data which had never been there before. Semi-corrupted file names. I was going to just edit the few files that appeared corrupted, but then I discovered that about half the files in the previous week were also corrupted. Hand editing a dozen files would have been ok, but half a weeks worth of files adds up to ~1000 jpg files. I ended up having to create script that went through and fixed up the file names, removed the exif data, and reset the timestamps to the date/time called out in the file name (next campaign the file names will be sortable in date/time order!! - I usually try to set groups of files that way) So the last two weeks are sorted out, on to fix up the rest of the files....
  20. Campaign 58 Videos are up. Campaign 58 The Northern Pocket
  21. I checked it a couple of times to see if I was missing a week or something...
  22. Campaign 57 is up Campaign57
  23. Campaign 56 Video, Plus two 6fps videos of the breakouts during Campaign 55 (I thought I have uploaded those already) Campaign 55 - Luxembourg Push Campaign 55 (Allied Right, Axis Center) Campaign 56.wmv As always there were a couple of data collection burps - once when we lost power, and the comodo firewall went nuts and locked up two computers for a day. Then there was another when the wiretap feed was down for a bit. Enjoy.
  24. Campaign 55 full video: Campaign 55 Once again a couple of data collection burps. ~85MB. I'll probably create a few additional videos for the breakouts.
  25. Campaign 54 Full Video: There was a period of a few days where the data collection stopped, and also a break during the patch. Campaign 54
