the lil bar thing in the video.
« on: March 15, 2007, 01:20:46 am »
hopefully everyone has seen the new video that steve posted and was circling for a while b4 that... i was just wondering what the lil bar thing at the botttom of the screen was. Do you think it was specifc for that taster? or do you think it will feature in the game, as a kind of progress bar? i noticed it moved quicker in the tidepool stage which would tie in to the idea of that stage only taking a few minutes. And as each stage was shown the picture (showing the stage) moved further along the scale.  ???

I wouldnt mind seeing it in the game, as long as it doesnt limit the main screen which it seems to do in the video... or maybe as an option that you can turn on or off?

Thinking more, makes sense that it wouldnt move fast in the creature stage as when u increase brain power you move to next stage right? so maybe everytime that happened it would jump up...

what do ya all think?

Apparently the warning "do not try this at home" really means "do not try this at all"... no one told ME!!!!

i dunno about it being a progress bar for the levels because one of the things i like is that theoretically you could remain in any one stage indefinatly....i think it might have just been for the video

Um, benjaminge, firstly, use the search button (sorry, had to say it and you will here more from others very soon).  This has been discussed before in other threads, even recent ones. Proper netiquette is expected of the forum members (trust me, observe the unspoken rules!)
Secondly, the little bar is an indication of progress of that video.  It is by no means a part of the game.  at all.  
the reason it jumps around as you noticed is because the video has been cut up into pieces as separate videos, with some parts taken out, and then put back together by fans.  In total, I have calculated that there must be roughly 9 minutes and 48 seconds of missing game footage in that video, going by the speed of the video and the status bar underneath.

And, if this hasn't been said before, welcome to the Spore Forum!
