I'm back with more stuff mined from the corners of the internet! I decided to scour the long-defunct Gamespy for any videos/files/screenshots of BFME 1 that have since been lost in time.
This search lead me to a page on old BFME media (http://pc.gamespy.co...h/531530p1.html) which contained links to some BFME footage somebody recorded during an EA presentation in 2004, but to my despair all the links were dead! However a search of fileplanet (where the article claimed to have uploaded the files 13 years ago!) yielded the aforementioned video clips which I have stitched together and uploaded to youtube for your pleasure!
I've included the link to the page as it also has as a bunch of of old classics like the E3 demo, trailers, making a cinematic video etc, at surprisingly good qualities - https://www.fileplan.../section/Movies.
I found more footage from the same EA presentation in 2004. It covers the same missions as the previous video, except the clips are slightly better quality, longer and the UI is hidden. They were uploaded to IGN in 2004, however in the same year they were deleted for some reason? I located the files by chance using the internet time machine on IGN. Its a great display of some of the older animations and assets, especially the weird fire arrows?
There's also these 2 videos produced by IGN that somebody else uploaded onto Youtube years ago. I'm sure you've all seen them but they also show, albeit in MUCH lower resolution, the game at a similar development stage.
That's it for now, cheers!
