I'll be collaborating them here, if I get any videos from other people, I will make a section for them in the original post, followed by links to all of their videos. You, James, are the only person who has videos for gold medals, so thus far you have the only section.

I posted this in another topic, but but but...!  I have a video request, and a question for James; I'd like to see the level Bones (not Bone Maze, Bones), because that one has me rather stumped.  Also, I'm curious about something.  There never seems to be a pause in the action, like in my game when I have to lift the mouse and pull it back so I don't run off the desk or my mousepad.  ^^;  What's the deal?  Do you use the arrow keys or the mouse?

I tend to use a combination of both, works well for me. I'm not ambidextrous, but my left hand is wasd/arrow keys specialized while my right is mouse specialized. FYI, I'm a rightie.

I use a mouse, on an empty 2.5-ft-by-1.5-ft section of desk, with sensitivity maxed out in both the game preferences and my system preferences; it doesn't hit the edges very often.

As for controlling the goo, I almost always just use the mouse. My mouse speed on my Windows computer is quite high, and I leave the mouse sensitivity in game somewhere in the middle. I think a lot of people move their mouse faster then they actually have to. There is a maximum speed that the goo can reach, and flicking the mouse across the desk won't make him go any faster. Use smaller controlled movement, just fast enough so that the goo gets to his maximum speed.

Yeah.  Incidentally, you can use this fact to reposition the mouse on the table without picking it up: move it sharply when the goo needs to go toward the center of the table, and gently when the goo needs to go away from the center of the table.

Hooray!  Sorry for the late thanks to James, but thank you James for the video!!!  I had to reformat my computer, so I need to start all over and get back to that level to try it out.  =P

And thanks to everyone else!  I chucked my mouse pad and made sure my desk was squeaky clean.  I use a logitech, so it has a nice sensitivity setting right on the mouse, so if I feel like I'm going TOO fast sometimes (when I'm still really small, I have a tendency to miss items), I can turn it down. ^^

Teatime Video
« Reply #10 on: January 02, 2011, 10:02:01 PM »
I've posted a video of me playing "Teatime" and getting a reasonably good score (15.52 seconds; at the time of this post, the high scores for "Teatime" were ThirdParty 15.46, Bluepenguin 17.39, Mr Kittens 18.10, and Kren 18.74):

I know nobody has trouble getting a gold medal on "Teatime", but it's always been one of my very favorite levels (just set the bar a little higher than what's required for gold, and it becomes a fun challenge), so I thought I might share.

I feel like I'm the one requesting all the videos.  "Chiisai" - I hate those darn soldiers.  And "Solar System Snack"  Both of those are really tipping me up.  In fact, "Solar System Snack" is my only bronze left! Please upload when you get a chance.

jdzane:  You shouldn't need a detailed plan for those two levels.  Just eat whatever edibles are biggest, closest, and/or in most danger of disappearing.  It might help in "Chiisai" to learn the locations of the swords and fish, so that you can find them quickly during the endgame.  In "Solar System Snack", you have to remember to head northwest after eating the moon, since that's where the asteroids are.  But other than that, just use common sense.

Kren:  FYI, the "Beware of Dinosuchus" video is mine, not James's--I finally figured out how to record screen captures using Quicktime Player--so should probably have its own section on your list.  You could also add my "Teatime" video (the link is in my previous post in this thread) to that section.

For the amusement of the forum, I've posted a video of me playing "Hovershield":

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=otRwwTcav7I

Presumably my strategy here is not the correct one for somebody who simply wants to get a gold medal.  I'd be interested in seeing a video of someone else (e.g. James) playing the level, to see what they're doing differently.
