Most of you know me, but for those who don't I am MaceMadunusus (also MaceCrusherMadunusus) and I work on the mods Movie Battles II and Jedi Knight Galaxies. I have been a little inactive in JKG as of late due to lack of time, and dedicating what time I have to MB2. I am also in the process of creating a game with other members of the Movie Battles team titled Movie Battles III on UDK. You can see some of what I do here: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Mace-Madunusus/140938522663076 This includes updates to other peoples levels, as well as my own content. Facebook is much easier for me to update compared to my site.
However, all of that is beside the point.
I created a LiveStream channel a long time ago and I occasionally broadcast what I am creating as I do it. However, due to the fact that I am in university which has a daily upload limit, I don't do it as much as I could.
While I realize a lot of people may not be interested. For those interested in learning level design or advancing their skills, or those who wonder what goes on when creating a level, I encourage those people to check it out.
While I don't have much time to create a lot of tutorials, I do know that I have already helped many starting mappers, and even experienced mappers enhance their skills already. I recently helped J3rk (aka P!ng) improve some of his abilities and understanding of the engine. I believe that watching someone do things is an excellent way of learning. It is one of the ways that I learn best. As I said, I don't have much time to create tutorials, so I believe this is a great alternative.
Here is a link MaceMadunusus - live streaming video powered by Livestream
While I am not always broadcasting, you can check out previously recorded streams below the stream window.
This recording right here is where I worked for 3 hours to improve the FPS on one of J3rks maps, Theed (recently released with MB2) Theed FPS Updateson MaceMadunusus - live streaming video powered by Livestream (With the changes here, I managed to increase FPS by 30 in local tests, and there is more that can be done.)
There are much more than the above, and I encourage everyone to check it out. Some videos also show me working on MB3 content, or misc MB2 content that is unrelated to level design.
Check it out and enjoy!
I will be updating this thread as I post major videos, or plan on streaming a large event. If you have any questions about things in the video, feel free to ask here (I wont see them or get notification when they're in the streams comment section)
I hope this helps people, so enjoy!
My name is Raz0r, and I approve of this message.
Go forth, younglings, soak up dat knowledge.
Hopefully this can encourage new mappers...

o.O. Y U LEAVE US?
And yes, his live streams are excellent. You will actually learn from them.
Hey everyone! I have been fairly busy lately with school and work, but I wanted to let you know of a small update to my live stream.
Recently I worked on the Movie Battles II version of Battle Over Coruscant. Here is the link to the stream of me working on it between classes one day. You can see the full post regarding the BOC update below as well!
Fair warning though, it is not all of the work I did on the area, just that small bit of work between classes. Be sure to check out the actual news post as well though!
Enjoy! Stay tuned for more!
