About This File

The idea of this set is to place the gameplay video in context, with the hardware of its time. A touch of nostalgia to better understand an unknown material especially for the youngest. Most of the montages use the EmuMovie gameplay videos. The others are mine.

This video set is also available in 16:9 ratio here

I also share the gameplay videos I create with the help of the community.
On EmuMovie FTP :       "Upload here > _Video Snap Submissions > Viking (Platform Video)"



Dad of 2 young children, I dont have enough time to make another video.
Thanks to him, @dragon57 are nicely create new video for this set. You can find additional videos here.

If other people are interested in creating video for this set, here is a Mega link to download a 7zip archive with some source files that will help you stay in the graphical lines.
Thank you for your help and your understanding! ;)

This set has something that no other video set on LaunchBox has and that's nostalgia. Seeing the consoles set up with their peripherals on a TV from the era bring memories flooding back.

I would highly recommend these videos over the default platform videos.

These videos are amazing, They are very crisp, clean and complete the look of my Big Box platform selection. Just a couple of things though, My PC is hooked up to my big telly so would you be able to do these in 16:9 aspect ratio & also I just need a Commodore 64 video, Magnavox Odyssey 2 video & Sinclair ZX Spectrum +2 video to complete my collection if you get time please, Keep up the good work.
