The Battle of Skully Gorge

Postby SkydivingRobot » Wed Jun 17, 2009 2:46 pm

This is my first BrikWars battle, played using the Quik-er Wars rules. It's in the form of a PowerPoint presentation for the sake of novelty, and compressed with WinRar. (http://www.rarlab.com)

Also, I am now considered the Demigod of BrikWars apparently. Wow.

True, get it here.  May be a stumbling block if folks do not have admin rights on their home pc though.

Presentation was a good laugh, a vibrant way to report a battle.  Good use of sound - used sparingly at the right points.

Makes me wonder what other formats would make an alternative to many-pics-onna-page-with-one-line-of-text.  CBR is tempting but you need to hunt like the devil for a reader, at least for Vista.

Me no likey downloading something that I'm not even sure is worth downloading.  :., I'm probably going to miss out on this one.  If your battle is really that awesome, take the time to put it on the forums, or at least onto a site where I can look at it without downloading.

PS welcome to the forums.

Ditto.

However, a PP battle report could be interesting, but downloading the file just for that...post on the forum instead.

I don't think you can. Only recording them and putting them into video.
