Re:WWYD 5/30

hard one... beiing the noob i am, i would probably trow the 7-crak to make 2 sets out of that. open wait on the 1-crak or 4-crak is good IMO. Waiting on the 3-dot is a bit risky, but that wait can be broken up when you should draw a 4-dot or 6-dot, or maybe another 5-dot to wait on a 6-bam or anothe...

Re:Sites

that looks impressive! i think it will require a hefty client though, but the graphics, and the motions are sweet. i have the same connecting problem to the site by the way. lets hope is temporary, i want to try it out :) EDIT: after some searching, it seems that they use an IP block for non japanes...

Re:game recording for analysis. Good or bad idea?

good pieces of advice. Its true that i still have to learn to look at the wind tiles. as it is now, i only keep those when i have a pair already. With that pair i hope for a triplet, or a open pon so i can end a game fast if thats needed. I havent looked at the player winds yet. I\'m going to try th...

Re:Requests for More Videos?

i would like to see how the more experienced player lets the dora, round wind and player wind influence his playing style. maybe also when its a good moment to open kan/pon/chi, and when it should be avoided at all cost.

Re:game recording for analysis. Good or bad idea?

ok, my video is on its way. Its uploading now. I noticed that the PCM codec for sound is awefull... i ended with a 10 MB video stream and a 136 MB audio stream (making the total video 146 MB ), which is stupid of course. so i reencoded the audio to mp3, and now i have a nice and small 17 MB video wi...

Re:game recording for analysis. Good or bad idea?

nice video hotelFSR. the only thing that bothered me was the youtube logo that was right in front of the drown tile :P definitely learned something about reads. and strategic waits. But... i need to ask something. at a certain moment, you ditched 2 1-pin tiles, and in the beginning of a game, you di...

Re:game recording for analysis. Good or bad idea?

Tom Sloper: yeah, like i said: tenhou already does that, and you can view every game with a simple link, but a new player will not understand why the experienced player decided to break up a certain wait to go for another one unless you do a hell lot of typing with every link you post. it works the ...

Re:game recording for analysis. Good or bad idea?

Senechal good points, but those only apply when an experienced player makes a video for the unexperienced player to learn from. In case the unexperienced player makes the video, maybe its quite interesting to see that he tries a tanyao every round. People can try to help that person then to avoid th...

Re:game recording for analysis. Good or bad idea?

As you found, the problem is the method. The logistics and the technical details. In general, it turns out to be too cumbersome. More power to you if you figure out one that can gain wide acceptance and support. the method described in the message above (camstudio) is free, the program itself is 1....
