Skyrim – Diplomatic Immunity completed


Link: Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

I found a more convenient way to upload gameplay videos to YouTube.  I first installed the free Xvid video codec.  I then downloaded the free VirtualDub video editing software.  Then I simply batch-encoded all the uncompressed AVI files that Fraps spits out while recording gameplay.  The re-encoded AVI videos look beautiful and take up far less disk space (4 GB to 200 MB). Re-encoding and uploading to YouTube still takes plenty of time, but very little attention.  I can set those jobs to work, and walk away.

So I recorded something like an hour and a half of gameplay yesterday, playing through the “Diplomatic Immunity” quest in Skyrim.  There’s a lot of wondering around the Thalmor estates, as I wasn’t quite sure what I was looking for or what exactly I needed to do.  Turns out I needed to talk to a character to finish the quest, which was annoying.  And I forgot to bring my lockpicks into the Thalmor estates, so I couldn’t unlock any doors without their keys.  At the very end, I accidentally killed my accomplice as I tried to defend him against Thalmor soldiers.  Oops.  Sorry.
