• Crusader Kings III Available Now!

    The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.


    Real Strategy Requires Cunning

This thread is more than 5 months old.

It is very likely that it does not need any further discussion and thus bumping it serves no purpose. If you feel it is necessary to make a new reply, you can still do so though.

Actually i think it was a good thing, that he committed suicide historically. If captured and tried, he'd always be a "Martyr" to certain people who'd use the "Victors Justice" angle no matter how many truckloads of evidence there was against him. By commiting suicide instead he took the easy way out, making him look like a coward instead.

Video Experiment

I'd like to try an experiment with embedding video into this AAR. I'll admit my expectations are fairly low, and I may exceed the patience of some viewers especially if they have low bandwidth internet connections, but I still feel it's worth a try.

Experiment #1: animated gif:

poland_march2.gif


Experiment #2: Flash Movie:

[SWF]http://www.desktopdigital.com/polska/polisharmy.swf[/SWF]

Comments, complaints, advice are all welcome.

Edit: Ok. Clearly Flash isn't going to work, so I can forget about getting any audio associated with video. I guess I'm stuck with animated gifs. I'm wondering if anyone has ever tried a PHP include?

I personally don't mind and think that it could add to the AAR in many ways. If you are comfortable with it, then please use them!

That animated gif is absolutely wonderful ;).
It should be used to show Polish troops on a victory parade in Berlin.

BTW, from which year are those units on this gif? They make me proud to be polish :p

I can't be exactly sure about the year, but judging by the helmets and overcoats, it must be 1938 or so....perhaps 1939. It came from a video I found on YouTube that was a British newsreel about the "enormous" power of the Polish Army (it makes that outlandish claim that Poland has 4 million men under arms). It has some nice shots in there....but the facts were a bit exagerrated.

I can see the animated gif, but not the video below. How did you made it anyway?
I hesitate to turn this AAR into a media tool tutorial, but generally I follow these steps:

1) Install a FLV grabber utility, I use Orbit but there are others.
2) Bring FLV into Flash and rip an animated gif
3) Edit Animated Gif in Image Ready to select the frames wanted and resize
4) upload and link

There's got to be a way to link SWF flash movies. I'll experiment with PHP includes.
