Also another thing I forgot to mention, I don't know if it's just me but the recording quality is very low which makes dark areas really difficult to see in and understand.
Actually, the recording quality is pretty high due to me using a dazzle + recording TSFP/Editting TSFP video's on the highest quality possible. However, I did notice the quality getting a bit worse when I started recording in widescreen. Whatever caused it, I don't know, but it's still very watchable.
As for the dark places/darkness in general,
I made them pitch black for a reason, as in, people should NOT notice 100% what is going on there, haha. But yeah, I know what you mean. But don't worry, the video's get a bit "lighter" in general as you continue the series!
The main reason I think the quality is as bad as it is, is the fact this is all recorded on the gamecube, sadly. I have recorded video's on my xbox and they look way better. Sadly, the whole series was made on gamecube so I had to stick with it. Sorry for that. I hope you'll still enjoy them, though!
