"VAG aka Video Achievement Guides is the newest addition to our site. As many know - gamerscores are getting more and more addicting throughout the XBOX 360 community. Some achievements are easy, while some are on the harder side. VAG’s are supposed to help the user with a well-done video showing how exactly the achievement should be done in the easiest fashion. The Low Quality version can be seen on Youtube. The High Quality version can be downloaded from the following link to my website (in the video section or the front page)…"

VAG#1 - Frogger: Speed Racer
http://img475.imageshack.us/img475/1311/vag1froggernv3.gif
Low Quality (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uz4FFw2Qxvg) or High Quality (http://www.iOryan.com)


VAG#2 - Frogger: 7 Lives Glitch
http://img89.imageshack.us/img89/7056/vag2froggerie6.gif
Low Quality (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dhmyEPg63Vc) or High Quality (http://www.ioryan.com)

High Quality Versions of all of the upcoming VAG’s will be downloadable in the video section of iOryan.com, you will be able to find the low quality versions on Youtube. I hope you enjoy the video and I hope you get that achievement! I will take all VAG requests - so leave some comments on my site!

I edited the first post so its more user friendly... I'm getting LOTR today - so a video will be in the works for those achievements.

BTW - These videos are sponsored by iOryan.com - Check it out! Its still under contruction, but its looking fairly nice.

Glad it helped! As for LOTR - I'll be getting that tomorrow along with The Outfit and PREY... I should be recieving OverGFighters soon.

Requests would be lovely! Can't wait to make more....

@Webb: Thanks for the comment mate! :nana

I was thinking of doing the 3 secret achievements in PREY for all the noobies out there for VAG #2 - Good Idea?

:D My pleasure :p

As for the 3 secret achievements on Prey... Errrrr, IMO, not a very good idea, simply because with the card games, the cards come out randomly. If you catch my drift ;)

I've noticed people having problem with the penalty shot achievement for NHL. People are trying to get it on their own. How about that?

Webb
07-16-2006, 01:12 PM
I don't think the idea is to do it for EVERY achievement, only some of the tricky ones where people need a push in the right direction ;)

First off I just wanted to say that the whole VAG idea is awesome.

Secondly... how do you guys output the video to your computer with such good quality (ie - it wasnt recorded with a camera or camcorder)?

Tony Hawk's American Wasteland video guide to getting all the gaps would be awesome as plenty of people have trouble getting them.

Do you accept video walkthroughs from other people?

And yeah like people have said it's a great idea and has been organised extremely well. This could get very popular. :)

Does who accept videos?X360a.org did not make these.You can make your own and post them on the boards for others to see.Also a video on getting the green top in story mode would be awesome!

Oryan
08-09-2006, 11:09 PM
I do the videos for VAG's - if you would like to submit your own VAG (It has to be your own) please send it to me at oryan@ioryan.com.

I can't make any videos until I get my xbox back. Hopefully it will come soon like the support said.

If you are up for it why not try showing off in Geometry Wars?

You could even make a three month long video for the 280 levels in bejewled.

That is awesome... but they fixed the seven lives glitch before I purchased frogger. I really don't think that's fair that people were allowed to beat it easily and now I have to work for it. Oh well, life isn't fair!

I only need to beat lv 5. ^_^

Let's say I did want to make a video achievement guide.. what equipment would I need and how would I come upon doing it?

Webb
12-31-2006, 03:18 AM
Video capture equipment. HD costs a shit load, normal will set you back like 100 (not sure what the Canadian Dollar exchange rate is).

I was looking in to it as I thought it could be amusing to make some montages :) Oh well

Hey, i have a request, i really need help in rainbow six vegas. In the guide it says that the first leavel is the one that you can get the achievement
equipment specialist by going to the first leavel of the game, and that there is a box full of every equipment that can be used i just can't find it. If you have the time i really need the help thanks.

Curtis
05-27-2007, 05:56 PM
When you start trainyard, it's just 5 feet forwards on the left. Then you open the door and go through the trainyard itself.

If you really can't find it I'll get a vid for you.

And about American Wasteland, I have all of the gap vids saved on my computer, but don't remember where I found them. Add me to MSN and I'll send em to you through a chat window.

Whatever happened to this idea? It's been a year since it's been posted, and there are very few videos in the site. Only 12 in a year. Do you guys have enough people working on that, or are you guys going through a tough time, or what?

TigerDirect has a few at a decent price. Put you might need to get the coaxial cable hookup for the 360.

They have a great one that is USB and its pretty cheap. It has
Video 1 Input: Composite Video Input. or
Video 2 Input: S-Video Input.

I think you're failing to see the real problem. This idea isn't dead, we never made it dead. The fact that we have this stickied shows that we want this to happen. The main problem is VAGs. We don't have any! We didn't let it collect dust, we simpy don't have people making VAGs. If we don't have those, then what do you want us to do? There's nothing much we can do. The thread is here. We want it to work. We just need people to be interested in it. They want VAGs but they won't make them. To be honest, I would be making a ton of VAGs but unfortunately I have to save a ton of money for something else. But I am in the works of building a new computer that has a capture card.

12-29-2007, 05:49 PM
I've had success a few times looking on youtube for a few achievements. There are a lot of videos out there but you can't just steal them and put them on here. It's a cool idea and I too was surprised to see only a few on here but it's tough to probably get a lot of people on here to submit one's of their own.

For the most part though just search for videos on youtube or another video hosting site and you'll be surprised how many they have up for individual achievements. And there are plenty of places that will have screenshots for things such as collecting things.

I guess I'll give it a shot. My computer is a MacBook so it has a built in camera. It will be crap quality but I can talk through it. So I may as well give it a go.
Alright here's my first try
YouTube - Metal Slug 3 Level 1
And yes it is crap quality. I am psychic.
