Okay, new squads

Marcello + Echiko
Mega`Adnan + Run (Shark said that Run tried to contact them, which is good!)
Shark(Requin) + mzkah, probably the most active pair of this season, who at the same time didn't play any match so far. I am sure this will change now :)

Thank you!

Ty3 for more than 2 months is completely non-existent (I still support advancing Shark instead). Eataysir, Pawelddz55, Mycy, are all non-existent too. Can we please just proceed forward instead of waiting 5 years for our opponents to appear? :/ Mycy, if you ever decide to visit this cup, then Sibasa is online every day for you to fight.

Who wants me, I can take place of inactive.

I am available too to take the place of inactive players.

@cgar, How much did it take to convert that replay into video?

For the total time It's kind of hard to say since it was all done manually and separately instead of with armaRec. But it was pretty slow.

I've took some time to do some more testing to get an idea about the speed. This is still just manual encoding and is only for the png frames to mp4 part. And the chosen replay is the same as previous (28m 14s).

TestTimeSpeed
CPU, 720p, 60fps, placebo preset, 1 thread19m 28s1.45x
GPU, 720p, 60fps 9m 3s3.12x
CPU, 720p, 60fps, veryfast preset, 16 threads4m 11s6.19x
GPU, 480p, 60fps 4m 51s5.82x
CPU, 480p, 60fps, veryfast preset, 16 threads 1m 40s17x

CPU is the AMD 5950x and GPU is the AMD 6700XT. I expect the speeds to be faster in the future but atm I cant push them due to my dodgy PSU.

The sound part for ArmaRec can take quite some time. Last time I tested it the sound processing part took about 10 minutes for an 8 minute replay. And that was after turning on more compiler optimizations lol.
Which is the other reason I prefer my hacky bash script manual'ish approach over armaRec. It means I have to play the file twice, once for video exporting. and once at realtime for sound recording. But its still faster and better quality than ArmaRec currently is. For large replays at least.
So as well as batch abilities and the other improvements that Charles mentioned, the sound part would also need it's speed improved and the slight quality issue fixed. Though the sound issue might only be for non 50fps exports.

double check what's the real framerate - is it 60 now? or 50? when i tried recording in 50fps, i felt like the recording process seemed a bit sped up

The game logic is still tied to 50fps but the graphics can be more using tweening so you can specify almost whatever framerate you want.
And IIRC when exporting at 50fps you don't get any tweened frames. So it should look identical to pre 3.8.
Oh and the recording might seem sped up since when exporting frames with 3.8+, it will try to export frames as fast as possible. So depending on computer speed and disk write speed and how many fps you want the gameplay may look very fast.

Since the fps is now so flexible and its only an extra 10fps I would say that 60fps would be ideal. Since that's much more standard for monitors.
As for resolution, imo 720p is the sweet spot. 1080p may be too zoomed out for some, and 480p may be the opposite.

I'm also up to cover for someone inactive.

Me and MarCello (same Rain clan) can be a couple if you need a replacement.
