Mmm, lots of free roam shit but not so many stunts :-(. Is it just me or is Stunting WAY harder in GTA4 that Vice City? SA was harder than VC as the NRG was much heavier and harder to launch. I find in IV that you can't spin the bike nearly as well as you used to be able to (eg, hard to do 360's, 720's etc). Me and a friend are trying to scope out some nice jumps to record, like getting onto rooftops and the such, the standard 'ramp' jumps are boring to hit, and to watch someone else hit.
Psy, if I'm ever on when you are and you wanna try anything out, just send me a message on XBL. If I'm not farming money on the old NOOSE'y, I'll jump in party mode.
And a tip for encoding (not that you need it
), you recorded in HD (16:9) and then encoded in 4:3. For a better picture (on youtube), record in 4:3 SD or letterbox you 16:9 HD to keep the aspect ratio A-OKAY. Do you use Sony Vegas?
And I love the intro song "Eye of the Storm" by BFMV, kick ass album. You should use "Waking the Daemon" in your next video, i LOVE that song! Or check out Power Quest, awesome Power Metal band from the UK...
EDIT: My bad, I didn't watch the credits the 1st time; you DID use "Waking the Daemon", sick!
Oh, you should try getting hit by the chopper when your on an NRG, even better than just getting hit :-).
It was youtube that compressed the video to 4:3. The only thing that really looks any different is the radar so I'm not too bothered. I'll be releasing the full 1280x720 or whatever video in a zip on the site soon.
We tried jumping cars/bikes into helicopter blades and it works, but we never got good enough results to warrant putting them in the video.
Cheers for all of the feedback though.

Was very fun to mess about with you guys, I'm defo up for some more this week. It was great when there were a few of us going for that jump and psy managed to drive past the alley way just at the time we were hitting it so you hit the side of psys van. Think I was the only one that made it past, just missed his back end. I then tried doing a back flip on the bike only my bike got stuck upside down half way through the jump and I landed on my head with my bike on top of me, lol.
Great capturing aswell Psy, you should do more.
Oh man that was great! We would never have been able to plan that
Haha, that was a good laugh, but the best bit was where I parked the van right over the jump and you (Lee... I think) drove straight into the side of it at about 200 MPH and died.
