Yesterday (Friday) I found out in another thread that Windows 10 had its own built-in recording software; so long as you have it correctly set up in your PC's Settings (it isn't difficult to do, I can explain if needed) you can record a shot you just played. In fact, you can record up to the last 10 minutes. Although not as good as WGT's own replay function from the Flash days because you don't have all the different cameras, it is definitely a good substitute as at the moment we have nothing else. As well as saving videos of shots you've just played, you can also record as you play, so you can record a game that might potentially be a good one.
As well as the built-in recording software, Windows 10 also comes with video editing software. When I opened it up yesterday I got a message that it was now obsolete and that I should download the free substitute software called Microsoft Clipchamp, so I did.
As well as WGT, I play a few other online games too. One game that I played many years ago was PoolCompsOnline, an incredibly realistic online pool game. Unfortunately that website closed down, but then I found FunkyPool, which had a similar feel, but (in my opinion) wasn't as good as PCO because you could still put backspin on the cue ball even if you were tight on a cushion or in front of another ball. Soon after that I also found its sister site, FunkySnooker. You can play both against other players, but there are so few playing these days that I mostly just end up bashing a few balls around while adverts are playing when I'm doing Tapjoy offers.
So after playing around with the recording and video editing software with WGT, I decided to see if it would work with FunkySnooker also. It did. Although it's nothing to do with WGT, I just had to share it somewhere! When playing FunkySnooker these days I mostly just break the red balls with the break-off shot, then see how big a break I can get without using any type of spin, i.e. just hit the cue ball in the middle. It's not as easy as it sounds because balls get in the way, and so you have to reply on power and good positioning.
Well, on only my second attempt I actually managed to clear the table (on the 'Arcade' size table with 10 reds at the start) for only the second time ever, getting a 100 break. I was recording at the time, then finished the recording and used the video editing software to remove some of the unwanted early footage. Then I went onto my favourite 'Original' size table, where the balls are tiny in comparison to the size of the table. After a few atempts of only low size breaks, I finally hit a purple patch and managed a 68 break, again using no spin. After ending this recording, I edited that video too, then put the two together, then uploaded it to my YouTube page. The result is below.
Like I said, this was done to try out the recording and video editing features of Windows 10, so feel free to ask anything if you need help in setting it up.
