I don't know if this REALLY counts as an AMV, but AMV.org is free to take it down if they feel it doesn't. Seeing as how it has music and game footage I'm hoping it will slide. :)
This is really a "live action film" using footage taken from FFXI in order to tell the story of 8-bit Theater's Black Mage and White Mage's first few meetings. All dialogue is adapted from the web-comic but is mostly a word-for-word replay of the first 4 or 5 strips with White Mage (visit www.nuklearpower.com if you have no idea what I'm talking about).
Most of the special thanks are covered in the credits, but I'd just like to thank Dzaal, Kalie, Quill, Merlins, Kobito, and Powerdud again for all the help they gave me in the making of this video. I couldn't have done it without all of your help! Thanks are also in order to my friend Craig, without whom a compressed version of this video would never have existed. For some weird reason the audio and video didn't want to synch up when I compressed it.... I'm convinced that's because technology (and especially adobe premiere) hates me.
Super-special thanks: (because just being in the credits simply isn't enough)
Dzaal took a LEVEL 75 DEATH for this video. I can't express how much this is appreciated. For those people new to FFXI, level 75 is the highest you can go. When you die you lose experience points.
Quill for letting me use his computer for the video capturing (I personally play on my PS2 so the quality would've been awful trying to capture from that.)
If you have trouble playing this video in windows media player (such problems have been brought to my attention), do the following things: 1. Make sure you have the XviD codec installed. Since this is an XviD video you kinda need that. 2. Attempt playing it in DivX player.
3. If that doesn't work, I have a 144 MB MPEG1 file, contact me on AIM or something or maybe we can figure out a file transfer.
