    Unfortunately even the enforcer couldn't make me a decent spy. I'm much more of a run into the middle of a battle guy than a lurk at the edges and wait for targets to present themselves guy.
    So run up to people, fail a stab, then gun them down anyway. Use the DR and Spy-cicle to escape.

    Or you could skip attempting to stab them and just shoot them in the face with the Enforcer. Works better than you'd expect.

    Well this is annoying. I actually played a bit of TF2 yesterday and saved a replay I'd like to render. Except the game crashes when I load any of the replays I recorded yesterday.

    That sucks, but does happen sometimes.

    I lost a replay of Ebo and I colliding mid air as scouts with our double jumps depleted.
    Over a death pit.

    I had a replay of two spies doing something like that. They were both cloaked and jumping to/from the lower bridge on doublecross (near the barrier outside of the sewers), they hit each other and one kinda was standing on the other's head at some point as they both fell to their deaths.

    I'm not sure why this spy decided to stand still here, but I think it makes for a decent video.


    Does anyone actually watch silly 20 second clips of TF2 gameplay that people like me make?

    I fucking love these kinda clips.

    I wonder if fireteams are possible in this game

    Marty: The future, it's where you're going?
    Doc: That's right, twenty five years into the future. I've always dreamed on seeing the future, looking beyond my years, seeing the progress of mankind. I'll also be able to see who wins the next twenty-five world series.
  • UEAKCrashUEAKCrash heh Registered User regular
    Yeah they are fun to watch. The important thing is decent editing and having a clip worth showing.

    Yours was good.

  • AdusAdus Registered User regular
    I'm going to repost mine because I'm still a long way from 1000 views. Also it is good.

    20 seconds is a fine length of time; can't really be upset with wasting 20 seconds.

    Anything longer than that though, man, you had better have something good!

    Yeah, loading that one crashes TF2 for me too.

    Makes me wonder if there's a bug where replays queued up within a certain amount of time to each other will break things.

    Please, call me ebo.

    Big head mode is much more gory than I remember it from UT.

    Apparently the last TF2 replay I put on YouTube was back on October 6th. :shock:

    In the meantime I've only managed to get a couple that have been worthwhile and/or haven't crashed TF2 when trying to load the replays. This first one I had been playing soldier for most of the third stage and hadn't seen a crit rocket the whole time. Having voiced my dissatisfaction over the fact only a short time beforehand, this made me happy:


    I think I won this one:

    Please, call me ebo.

    You killed me in both of those.

    Why are half of your clips killing me?

    Why, Ebo? Why?

    edit: And interestingly, on that second clip, the rocket hit me when I was still touching the ledge on my screen. It does look way more cool from your perspective. You should zoom in more on your clips though, hard to tell what's going on from so far away sometimes.

    This is my most recent replay, don't think I posted it here.



    (no one on SA liked it, I was trying to justify my use of the widowmaker which is an awesome fun gun. jerkfaces.)

  • SirToastySirToasty Registered User regular
    The widowmaker is sick as heck now. I use it constantly.

  • RiokennRiokenn Registered User regular
    It's even more fun with a robot arm!

    those dudes who are so awesome at pyro that they make level 3 sentries their bitch

    i want to be one of those dudes

  • KupiKupi Registered User regular
    I can understand hating on the Widowmaker when it first came out, because it was a shotgun with a three-round clip whose gimmick of restoring metal for damage worked if you were point-blank on the enemy with perfect aim.

    Now it's a six-round shotgun at worst, with level odds of getting you more Metal than you started with and firing indefinitely. If it weren't for the Pomson being a total middle finger to two of the three most dangerous sentry-crackers in the game, it'd be my go-to for Engineer.

    My favorite musical instrument is the air-raid siren.
  • xzzyxzzy Registered User regular
    Widowmaker also makes the engy a pretty crazy uber target. If they're a good aim they can go for the full uber without reloading, and the only other class that can do that is the heavy.

    The Kritzkrieg is great for never running out of ammo, too.

    slower than brass beast heavy?

    Probably slower than crouching Brass Beast Heavy.

    Put up a build of stoneyridge for people to poke at:

    http://xzzy.org/files/games/tf2/stoneyridge/cp_stoneyridge_b7g.zip

    I'm mostly interested if anyone is getting better or worse framerates compared to B7.

    I think I forgot to build the cubemaps, so enjoy hideous purple boxes everywhere. If it offends you, type "mat_specular 0" in the console.

    I still have a laundry list of things to fix but I'm not sure how much more we can do on the performance front without taking a hacksaw to the map.

    I lack being on time, but I found this humorous. I should probably add the Benny Hill music to it.

    None of these videos have unnecessary and excessive use of slow motion. They shall never receive my stamp of approval.
