List has been updated. :)
Also, feel free to nominate designs for those who aren't here, or if you have other favorites from those who already have posted.

@Waffle: That's a fairly good recording (better than Jyo's was lol). I'll do a quick test as well to see how mine comes out.
Btw how'd you get in in HD? Did you just stretch the recording?

I use camtasia recorder and studio. I just record the screen at normal size and publish it in HD. Other videos I've recorded turned out in REAL HD as in 720p, but I don't think it changes too much.

Never mind... that option wasn't there while it was processing lol

I record with Hypercam 2 and export either through WMM or Sony Vegas.

Here's a quick test recorded at default resolution and exported to 480p:

Unfortunately the game's resolution is 700x500 while 480p is 640x480, so there are some black bars.
Also, I could use the direct flash file to get a larger resolution and maybe change the recording area so it will fit 480p or HD.

Could I qualify? I was pretty decent back in the day, but I haven't made many new ones lately. Here are my best:

http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11641336 My best Mind The Gap Longway (It black holes, though)
http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11627630 Alternatively, my best Down Under Longway
http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11011505 Crazy parallelextender I built in FC to mirror Remy's 10-arm one in FC2
http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11772047 And I unriddled his Hamybridge too :)

If I had to pick, I'd say #1 and either #3 or #4, but I'll leave that up to you.

Edit: Thanks IGLima :)

It really is exactly the same, and ??? even said it's a remake. He has tons of longways to choose from and other awesome designs, just pick another one IGLima!

he can't take credits for remaking..

Sorry about that Remy. When I updated the list {???} hadn't edited his descriptions in (it was just a list). I'll add a different one for him when I update for you and jdccdj.

Also, which recording did you guys like more? Mine or Waffle's?

^ It's not that I can't record in 720p/1080p, it's that the game isn't in HD. FC has an odd aspect ratio of 7:5 instead of HD's 16:9 ratio. I could stretch the recording or only record a portion of the screen, but from previous experience neither of those look very good.

Remy: Dude. Don't get too over-protective. There's a huge difference between copying a design in FC and saving it (even with the title/description "not mine"), and rebuilding the thing from scratch ;). I accept it's the same as your design, but it isn't actually your design. The many, many hours of tweaking are to my credit.

But, you do have some point insofar as that 11011505 shouldn't be in the video. I'll take a look through my designs and see if there's a better insane one I have.

IGLima: I beg to differ, my descriptions were there from the beginning. My only edit was to thank you for putting the designs in the OP. Unfortunately, lots of my best designs are based on complex contraptions others have built and I only slightly modified, or didn't at all. So I'm going to have a hard time looking for a second ipecac design.

Edit: Whoops, I missed this:

Sorry Remy!

i am not over protective. you began from a scratch, still it looks like it is 95% the same.

I could understand that you would remake it and look if you understand what i actually made. but why would you post something in a video that not only belongs to you?

so basically you're saying: if i remake a design of you, i can take credits for the time i spent on it?

do you know how long i've been bizzy trying to figure out the get such long extend + the time i spent trying to get it to work.

Remy, let's drop it until you solve this, here, on FC1. Okay?

IG, I'm enumerating possible replacements for 11011505 and in retrospect I was hoping not to have F2P longways as both of my entries. Here are some of the ones I've come up with thus far:

From Remy's Brown Challenges thread:
http://fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=10928651 Brown 2, three longways
http://fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11026765 Brown 22, one longway
http://fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=10992974 Brown 82, my own extender. It doesn't pivot and has :champ: potential but doesn't do it.
http://fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11121932 Brown 54, I had a lot of trouble with this one

From a longway competition, way back:
http://fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=10945042 Outside the Box, a high-speed brown longway

I can't decide amongst them, although I'm leaning toward Outside the Box or Brown 2.
