    Hello everyone,

    First off: if it's against the forums rules to promote other sites, please remove this thread.

    Having said that: I recently tried my hands at the new animal training and was kind of confused. So I went to youtube to search for some tutorials and found none. While I was looking around, I noticed there are not many but a few tutorials. So, to make it easier for others, I started a fandom site where I collect video tutorials for UO. I feel like this is the most common type of media for walkthroughs and such for most games nowadays.

    You can find it here: Ultima Online Tutorials Wiki

    I know there are a lot of other places to find information about UO - the official wiki, stratics, uoguide and others, but this is mainly for videos and in no way intented as a competition but as an additional resource for videos.

    Right now it's still very empty, so if you happen to know about any tutorials, guides or howtos, please let me know. Oh, and I wouldn't mind if you spread the word about my little project here ;-)

    Well, my search skills may be lacking, but this is just one more reason to collect useful vids, imo. Most videos I found were just let's plays or fights not tutorials and guides. Or covered unofficial shards, which I don't want to include.

    But thanks for the pointers, I will have a good look at your videos and link to them if you agree. Will do the same for the other people.

    try searching for 'video' on stratics :) You can link to mine if you like, but they're not that good. I have neither the skills nor the equipment to make the best quality images.

    Thanks for putting those up. I went back and watched a bunch of those this morning. I was able to find many of them just by searching those names on youtube. Your vids are good Petra, lots of fun to watch!

    I just need to figure out some software to do some video editing to actually make tutorials. They are more just demostrations of how some suits/templates handle.

    I think one issue we have, though, is there are a ton of videos on YouTube from emulated shards. If someone just does a blind YouTube search, it can get confusing because of those videos. For example, if I YouTube search for the Gauntlet, I get a video from an emulated shard showing a sampire doing the Gauntlet.

    Just saying! :)

    Anyhow, I made really one video way back when (5 years ago I guess) on how to do the New Leadership quest:

    When I made my lone video back then I used HyperCam 2, VirtualDub, and Audacity. I added a track of audio to the video after the fact in Audacity. I am sure there are better ways to go about it, but those programs were all free (and I think you can still acquire all of them for free).

    Exactly, the freeshard communities seems to be more active on youtube than the official UO community. Which is a shame!

    But thanks for the video G.v.P., it is really nicely done - you should do more :)
