Editors comments:

Fifth movie out!

Figured it was time to release a "good" movie for once after all these
failures *points at grim.not.another.pvpmoviie.divx511.avi
and grim.ghost.on.the.hill.divx511.avi*.

In this movie I tried to make some scenes match some of the "keywords"
from the music. So that's the reason behind the emote abuse in this movie.

Anyway, I'm still using fraps for recording and vegas 5.0 for editing.

The resolution is as high as usually.

For feedback and comments, please post here on the forum or
stop by our IRC channel:
#Grim.Monolith @ irc.Quakenet.org

Hope you'll enjoy the movie as much as we did making it.

Dude... this is just too big for me. Why on earth should a 5 minutes video be 109 megs? There's a factor two at least to be gained without any loss of quality, I'm willing to bet, if only you'd resize the movie to a lower resolution. :/

800x600 would already be a better resolution than most DivX movies come in.

guess you havent seen/read what I've written on the older movies.

anyway, why I keep the high resolution is because I frap at that resolution. If I resize it the user interface will be all borked up = I dont like. I am aware of that it will be smaller if I resize since I can use a lower bitrate on the video.
I'm willing to add a few extra MB to keep the high quality, and since most ppl that are playing GW are using a better connection than modem I guess the size shouldnt be a problem.

I'm not watching it becauseit's WAY too big! It would've taken me 51 minutes to download it! Not worth it. Please make your movies much smaller in the future. :(

Sorry Aba, was dling before. Oh and I liked "not.another..."...

Anyway what stood out in this one was all the zooming in. In some parts it was pretty cool such as the knockdown -> aftershock warrior comes to mind. Maybe it was because I had it on full screen but I found my eyes hurting from it at the end...

learned how to zoom between this and the last movie i released so had to abuse it a bit, sorry about your eyes ~.~ >.<

a funny thing is that up until this movie, all my guildmates have complaint about the music but they were quiet on this one :O

I doubt this was your intent but you set my goal for how well my guild needs to cooperate ~.~ The video was nice, file size wasn't a problem for me... IDK... Alot of ppl have broadband so it might not be a huge issue.

I enjoyed watching it...

Nice job!

Was a while to download, but I found it worth it. What program did you use to have such steady camera zooms and manuevers? Edited the song well with charactor movements. Man, you guys laid waste to the opposing teams!

Nice to hear that you enjoyed watching it.
Also nice to know that it on some level helped you to set a goal for your guilds cooperation. :P

Thanks, and good that you didn't think it was waste of bandwith :P
The software that I used was Vegas 5.0. Took a while before I found out how to zoom and stuff, would have used it in my previous movies otherwise.
Anyway, the complete name of the software is Sony Vegas 5.0, there is a 6.0 out there but don't feel like switching
Trial version of the software can be downloaded from here:

Well, okay the music may be a teeny bit cheesy - but it's fitting!~ I think it was worth the time this took to download.

BTW, I think I saw you guys win before =3 Good job!~

yea i know that the music is a bit cheesy :P (for the record, usually, I do not listen to this kind of music) but as you said, I also thought that the song would be fitting the video

well thanks for your comment

btw, if anyone have any good suggestions for the music that I can use for the upcoming movie, please feel free to tell me :P

I didn't think it sounded cheesy at all...it's a guild and they're meant to be unified and I think it really is a fine achievement. Great video! I've watched it many times already--what I love best about these music videos is when people find aspects of the game to match the words and you did an awesome job.

As for people complaining about the filesize, 21st century ftw!!!

Awsome vid man, very awsome. I have watched it countlessly, and it has inspired me to hoh more, and to make a condition/hex removal build, same as the first one showed in your video. Don't mind if i steal your build, in fact you should be flattered that im using it, although it's not really that custom of a build, but w/e. just letting you know that i am uisng it and that i was inspired to pvp a lot more because of your video. Thanks for a great vid. keep it up man, ill be looking forward to watch some more.

Heh thanks, and nice that you've seen it more than once. :P
I don't really mind if people "steal" the builds that are used in the videos. If I didn't want to share the builds then I would have put lots and lots of black boxes everywhere on the screen to cover all the important stuff, but I don't.

Heh, feels great for me everytime someone says something like "it has inspired me to hoh more". Feels nice to have made people more interested in HoH/GVG.

heh, well you did put up a good fight so it wasn't exactly a free win for us.
Never met anyone before that we faced in a movie, np that we added the fight in the movie or?

heh, it was suppose to only zoom in to the text where it said that we won but guess I was a bit careless when I did that zoom >.< :P
well no harm done, just made your name famous :P
before he said "I saw your name in the grim video", had you already seen the movie or you where like "WTF?!"

Very heroic mood going on in the video and the song fits in perfectly. Effects and editing are very impressive. Good sync with all of those performances and emotes. I really enjoyed watching this one.

and for those who are waiting, here's a preview of the next movie:

if the link doesn't work then it could mean two things, either the ftp is full or I removed the preview.

hehe really nice video :D
heres a funny thing.. a day after I saw this movie I went into the tombs with my warrior Vengeance X, won round 1, in round 2 I saw Grim Monolith as guild =O I said.. "Spirit Never Dies"? They said yeah hehe.. and then I was like.. "Crap" :D

Really nice, looking forward to see more movies, you inspired me too to play more Tombs.. Never actually won the whole thing though.. only get to hall and then lose :(
Keep up the good work
