No, it's not easy to follow nor user friendly.
Jack is a new guy and just download CryEngine, he like to know something about sound. He goes for this first tutorial
from the Audio tutorial
So he sees that he needs to download Sample Assets (v8 396.78MB)
After downloading, he spends some time trying to find PIT_BLANK.cry, eventually he finds it at: ".\SAMPLE_v8\CONTENT_EXAMPLES\GameSDK\assets\levels\contentExample\PIT_BLANK\PIT_BLANK.cry", but then doesn't know what to do with it. So he can't process to follow the video and gives up.
Maybe these tutorial is more user friendly than the past, I appreciate that you made an improvement, but you still need to push forward, imagine you as a newbie, not a familiar user when designing these beginner's tutorial.
So I really hope that the tutorial can be like this Unity's tutorial
for beginner: They give a project for the tutorial series (and update the project when it's outdated), they give the slide, they give the transcript for non-English speaker, they give related tutorials.
Instead of giving one big package for all the tutorials, make small projects for each tutorial/tutorial series. What's the newbie want is "one-click-setup". There are a few disadvantages of one big package for all tutorials that I guess you already know:
1. User take long download time.
2. Confuse user.
3. hard to setup.
4. Require user download the whole package when there is an update for 1 outdated asset (If there's an update for asset)
If you don't have time to break the big package now, at least give description (what is this, how to set up) for the content in the big package, but I still prefer small projects for each tutorial series.
I see that the tutorials just starts out with the pre-setup scene (for example: https://youtu.be/GJDs5YxhgPU
), how the user know what's that come from, so it should be a good idea to tell user in the video's description where user can download the tutorial project (I said project, not asset, project contains asset and project can be clicked and played).
If you can't provide transcript for now, link the video from Youtube instead of Vimeo (don't get me wrong, I also love Vimeo, but I don't see Vimeo has auto-generated subtitle), so at least user has auto-generated subtitle. I see you've already uploaded your tutorial to Youtube.
