A New Guide With A New Style

Note: This post is sticky.  Scroll down to see more posts.

So, I wanted to add some more, better guides here.  My original thought was to add video guides along with the written walkthroughs.  Well, then I realized that that wouldn’t work, because all of the software that I have don’t do good videos, and I don’t have the kind of money that it takes to buy software that does make good videos.  So, I thought to myself, what’s better than written walkthroughs?  Well, walkthroughs with pictures would be better.  But, some of our guides already have pictures on them, and it would be pointless to rewrite an entire walkthrough just to add pictures.  So, I needed something in between walkthroughs with pictures and video walkthroughs.  Something that I could do along with the normal walkthroughs.

So, what would that be?

What about a slideshow?  Not just any slideshow, though.  A slideshow with both pictures and words.  A slideshow with amazing graphics and transitions.  A slideshow with maybe a little background music.  The dream slideshow.

Well, prepare yourself to see the dream slideshow come to life.

And what better way to start a whole new series of dream slideshows than by starting with my favorite island: Cryptids Island.  So, scroll on down to see part one of the guide to Cryptids Island!  Oh, and sorry about being sort of cheesy, I was just having fun.

Oh, and for simplicity, we will either refer to these guides as the dream guides or as the video guides, even though it’s more of a slideshow than a video.

Note: the dream slideshow does have a few little problems.  Like the fact that the pictures don’t stay up for very long.  This is only part one of the guide, so all that will be fixed in part two.  I was still learning how to use the software when I made the video.

Let me know what you think of it!  I hope you liked it!  If you have any suggestions, questions, or something to say about the video (like that you thought that it was the most amazing thing EVER), just leave a comment!

I’ll be finishing the second part to the walkthrough real soon, and I’ll do a post when I’m done.

  2. That’s awesomee ! I like it . where do you get those songs or audio or something ?

    • I’m so glad you like it! 😀 On Animoto, the program I used to make the video, you have the choice of either using a song from a library of songs that they have or you can upload a song that you have on your computer. The song I used was one of the ones that Animoto had.
