    So I have been making a slew of new player tutorials and most are getting linked on sotahelp.org which is the site that folks have been talking about for connecting directly with someone volunteering their time to be a hospitaller and aid new and old players alike.

    Keep in mind I had never made a video until 2016 (when post was started) but over time the quality and content I feel is improving as I learn new tricks etc.

    **NEW-8/16/16** By request there is now a playlist of all these videos, but I will continue to add notes on them individually. The playlist is in reverse chronological order with the newest being first.

    New Videos added to list 8-13-18

    • MIDI to MML for band breakout-Music is one of the wonderful features in Shroud of the Avatar, however there is a bit of a learning curve. This video is more advanced and shows a technique for taking a midi file which are more bountiful on the internet and breaking it into specific instrument/band player pieces.
    • Masterwork, Mastercraft and Enchanting-While originally shot for the R30 iteration, I have added comments about the R31 changes and what that means. This video talks about the pre-requisites, the cost of gambling for enchantments and whiy sellers may pass that cost on to you.
    • Coin of the Obsidian COTO-One of my first videos, and not the best but proof of concept and if you don't believe me well watch video and be assaulted with the Driving and Crying song Fly me Courageous. While not particularly widely encompassing, it was something I was interested in looking at the rewards and did the math work. My humble opinion if you are super high level and using them, it is an edge, but I do not see it as a benefit I would use since the timer counts down even when I am offline. Maybe Feedback that timer countdown.

    @Lace

    In your video re: Maps & Compass Navigation you mentioned wanting to be able to stop the maps from fading out -- open your Options menu, then click Game, then about halfway down the list look for "Enable Transparency On Maps", and clear the box (remove the checkmark so you have an empty box for this one), and then close and return to game...your maps will now not fade out.

    I do not know yet how this may or may-not affect other screens/windows in your HUD/interface, so might be a good idea to check things out before running into a dungeon and then finding out this causes other things to be affected. But it does stop the maps from fading...which was frustrating to me.

    Thank you again for taking the time to make these videos to help us newbies!

    Well folks for probably a good reason only 15 pieces of media can be shown on a single thread entry.

    So I have added 2 more videos in the last few days --- please see in red at the top for the playlist to start accessing the newest videos, the playlist is in descending order by date by when I uploaded them ..

    I will post every 2 or 3 videos or so when I add new content to that playlist at the top.

    2 more videos added today and thinking about reorganizing the main post to be just links not video embeds, will include the playlist but also give a more text driven description of each video to help folks hunt and peck rather than scanning a playlist.

    The individual video links have been removed and now just a text list of the ones available are there in order by the playlist which is by date descending order. So you should not need to travel from the original post.

    3 new videos added (last one is publishing now) and they are documented in the top thread.

    This is likely the last set until final wipe that were dependent on either my personal level to shoot them, or having items to use in demos. I do not suspect to do any more of this nature for a few weeks after final wipe.

    I do have some non 'resource' dependent videos to do in my backlog and will get them up as time permits.

    I have a little time this evening, some tomorrow evening and some early wednesday where I could possibly put together some more if there are timely requests between now and then.

    So read over the list, and let me know of anything that would be useful for the influx of new players we should see over the next few weeks that I have overlooked.

    (And thanks for watching)
