View Full Version : Karting Korner - Want your levels filmed? Read on....

11-21-2012, 02:54 PM
Greetings all
I'd like to start a semi regular video series on my youtube channel called Karting Korner. This will include video reviews of levels as well as promotion for whatever else is going on in LBPK at the moment.

This means I would like people to submit their levels for review in this thread. However, this is not a complete open invite so let me make some points about this offer.

* This video will include footage of your level. This will help you promote your level. Hurrah.
* I am reviewing your level, not just filming it, so if I have suggestions for improvements - I will include them.
* I am doing this for fun.... but also to promote my youtube channel
* If I take the time to do a video review of your level.... I expect you to add the video to your level post in the other forum.
* I will be positive about all levels, but if I do point out bugs, problems and suggestions for improvement, then I still expect you to add my video link to your level thread.
* My youtube videos are my property, so by submitting your level here you are giving me permission to use footage from your level in this video
* You are welcome to post the video anywhere you wish to promote your level
* The videos will contain more than one level so you if you wish you can instruct people to FFWD to the right section (and I will try and put annotations in the vid to FFWD too)
* My vids have advertising...deal with it. This means I make at least 50p a month. This is my 50p. Mine. MINE!
* I expect to do about 5 levels per show
* If I receive more than 5 submissions I will choose the levels/individuals that I feel are the most deserving of a free video
** factors I will be looking when choosing are.... Is your level something you've spent time on? Is the level buggy/borken? Does it have its own forum thread? Have you written a full description of your level? Have you included decent screenshots? Are you active on these forums? Does your level have something special/new about it?
* I expect lots of 'thank you's and love for filming your levels :)

So please read and understand all the above before submitting your level to the Karting Korner.

If you would like me to video review your level please submit your level below in the following format...

Level Name:
Link to your level thread:
Link to lbp.me level:

You can see an example of one of my video reviews below


If you don't wish to post below you can send me the above information in PM or wallpost. Once I have your level info I will go check out your thread and hopefully get filming it for you!

I assume there will be interest from the community in getting your levels filmed... otherwise I'll just make videos of my looking sad. AND NO-ONE WANTS THAT.

much <3

I think that what your doing is great but I feel your gonna get a lot of backlash from ppl you give bad reviews to lol. Good luck and maybe I'll post some of mine soon.

11-21-2012, 06:54 PM
Don't worry, my aim isnt to give bad reviews. I wanna give good reviews and help people promote their levels. I just don't want people asking me to review something half built thats bugged as hell. As long as I can see the level is quality then of course I'm going to be positive about it. :)

11-22-2012, 01:22 AM
I can't believe that no one has taken TheAdipose up on this! This is an incredible service! Don't worry about his criticism to a level because it is all constructive. He is only trying to help. Watch his video for my level, sure, he says things he would like changed, but he also says a lot of very nice things too. And remember, if he records your level then even people without the game can appreciate your creation. The video he made for me currently has more plays than my level in-game does ;-)

Thanks so much for doing this Adi!

11-22-2012, 02:18 AM
I may come back later adipose! But first I must build a mind-blowing track. And finish my LBPVita projects lol. Anyway, good luck on this.

11-22-2012, 08:36 AM
Yes please. I would love for you to do 1 for my track garden raiders https://karting.lbp.me/v/1abd .. thanks : )

11-22-2012, 09:16 AM
Dfw, I've tweaked the opening post to make it clearer about 'bad reviews'.

Thanks for the support Mr Poo and Yugnar.

I've had a couple of people approach me in PM about their levels so I will include them in the first episode.

LaidBackCat, thanks for submitting your level - please can you use the format in my opening post so I can get to the relevant pages quickly. Thankee.

11-22-2012, 08:35 PM
Thanks .. here is the link to the original thread http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?75634-Garden-Raiders .. hope i got it right .. I haven't quite worked out how to add pictures yet and tbh im not sure i can from my ps3 ( no computer at mo ) ... btw blast zone is amazing !

11-26-2012, 10:19 PM
Adipose, I checked out your first Karting Korner Video, and I really liked your level of quality and insightful comments. I would be honored if you included my level in your next Karting Korner Video!

Manlius, I already played your lovely level earlier in the week and left you feedback on your level thread.

Next KK is gonna be next week, will have to see how many requests I get to see I revisit levels. :)

I would love to get this level reviewed, I really need feedback on it, as it is a track with some new ideas in it.
Thanks in advance.:D

Edit: The track is on the bottom of my planet, as I don't know how to move levels.

TheAdipose: Not only would I love to take you up on your offer of submitting The Metroid track to you for review after it is finally complete, I would also like to offer to promote your YouTube channel on my website if you like. You can check it out if you want (www.JCWigriff.com). What I was thinking about doing was getting some snapshots from everyone's best levels, then making an article outlining some of the best custom tracks on LBPK. I could plug your YouTube channel in it, and also put a link somewhere on the site to send people there in the future (probably in the links and partners section.)

Tell me what you think.


Also: Your video reviews are high quality and very well done.

12-07-2012, 06:02 AM
I've been updating my two levels quite frequently due to feedback from people in-game. A thorough review will help me improve my LBPK creation skills even more.

I also saw it said you will lookfor levels with there own thread but the faq said i needed cms permission i am confused any help?:confused:

12-12-2012, 03:06 AM
This is a great idea, Adi. Your Karting Korner videos are great to watch, and I subbed to ya too! This track here is more or less complete if you would like to review it.

I don't have anything complete and ready for reviews quite yet, but what do you use for your video capturing? I imagine you do a mic overlay after the fact but I'm curious as to how you get your videos as clear as you do. Everything I've tried always ends up blurry :|

12-13-2012, 03:02 PM
Adipose, I have finished my second level, Mushroom Battle Arena. Please consider reviewing it in Karting Korner. I have familiarity and confidence with building racetracks, but battle arenas are a whole different beast. I really have no idea what makes a good battle arena, and will be very receptive to any criticism on battle arenas.

remy, i'd rather do your clive level - i think its more ground breaking.

IVo, I use a HDPVR2 which wasn't cheap. And yes I record vocals afterwards. I could record at the same time with no loss of sound quality but I'd probably talk rubbish and have to overdub anyway. I dont wanna be one of those youtubers who just says errrr ummmm and laughs a lot during the vids.

Manny, ok i'll take a look. I dont really like battlemodes though.. I dont really see where the strategy is. Maybe ill do a feature on what makes a good battle arena and ask for comments.


12-15-2012, 07:47 AM
Nifty, I'll have to look into one of those after the holidays. I was never happy with the quality of my modnation track videos, would like something better to use XD

12-15-2012, 03:56 PM
If you make a track on lbp, Im happy to film it - as long as its awesum.

Adi, that's fine too now that the Clive track is finally finished! It took way longer than it probably should have to complete...

I'd love for you to review my TRON: Kartolution level. Your videos and tutorials has helped me on a few occasions! https://karting.lbp.me/v/3bnp thank you in advance!

01-10-2013, 01:43 PM
heya, since you mentioned you were going to look at arenas in your next tutorial i'd like to submit my arena battle for review.

my thread: http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?77124-Battle-Metalmatica-Mashfest

it is just a standard arena battle with karts and weapons and highest kills wins, but there are a large amount of sequenced moving parts and lights to make it interesting.

The Red Canyons - Time Trial. Worked really hard on it, positive feedback so far. :)

Well, I didn't see this before I posted my level on your profile. Well then, might as well do it again.
Anyways, I'd like to submit my first level (and only one at the moment), Lollipop Lane. It may require a little tune-up here and there but believe me, I feel like this level can really be pleasing to many.
