FS1 Longplay: Doing it vanilla or FSOPEN?

So for my new longplay channel (Linux Longplays) I have both FreeSpace games lined up. For FS2 I will be using FSOPEN without the media VPs, but for FS1 I'm undecided if to play it through the FSPORT or use vanilla FS1 with the glide wrapper. Any thoughts?

Burn the heretic! But the media VPs make it look really pretty!? :shock:

I'll have to think about it. Pretty yes, but it's not an authentic experience and it kind of violates longplayer code. And even if it didn't, a heavily modded game is probably too much of a strain for my PC to record in 60fps at 1080p.

You're not allowed mods for longplays?

I don't think there is any rule that says you can't use mods. I just don't use them in most games because they would tax my system more than necessary when recording in high quality, and in some cases it already takes a lot of fiddling to get games running on Linux. Introducing mods just adds another layer of problems. I'll have to see if FSOPEN runs well enough while recording on my system.
