Forter's Platform Documentary Video Set


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone!

I just recently got into Launchbox and instantly fell in love with it, so I purchased lifetime premium licenses for both Launchbox and EmuMovies. See below for a video I made of my setup which I customized with Documentary videos of each of the consoles (link to all files below) I currently have in my Launchbox. I'll try to include more in the future, but I apologize ahead of time if my next updates takes a while as I'm just getting into this and still working out a few kinks (most notably, Arcade ROMs)

I also customized the platform videos (and some games) to show some of my favorite documentaries. The documentaries are taken from various sources, most notably Classic Gaming Quarterly (you should check his channel out). I edited them a bit to get to the relevant bits, but they're all fairly long videos (except maybe the NES one), but I made sure to edit them in a way that looks professional (or as much as I could get it) and assuming you will watch the entire video

Will look to include more in the future, but you can download all the videos here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1KDxAMF55WJX7kJ7m9wdfPXLWrUoPjwLp

Also included in the zipfile are videos I used to replace some of the games' videos with some of my favorite YouTubers like videogamedunkey and AVGN

  •  Super Mario Bros. 2: I compiled all my favorite Dunkey's Game of the Year (3:47 in the video above)
  • Battletoads: Angry Video Game Nerd's Review of Battletoads (4:11 in the video above). I cut out the intro in this video
