Hey guys,

I'm going to start a new frag video and decided to make a community based one. Send me any timestamps and demos with nice frags and I will include. Be nice to get as many frags from as many people as possible.

If you need the hltv demos see here: http://ensl.gk-servers.de/public/index.php?dir=demos/

Cheers,
GibbZ

only available source (if ad did not record demo) - there is the problem that currently only Sputnik UK has a hltv?

I was going to make a community frag movie myself but ultimately decided it wasn't worth the work involved. That said, I have many demos recorded.

What kind of frag movie is this going to be? When I asked you what sort of frags you were looking for, you said 'anything flashy or good skill'. The only players that I can see making any sort of flashy/good skill kills are Tane, king_yo, and yourself, with some occasional moments of brilliance from the other tier 1 ish players. In fact, why not just download every replay of king_yo with a shotgun if you're intending to just make a movie of 'flash/good skill' frags?

Because of the immense skill disparity between players, I think it will be hard for you to make a movie with a set standard of 'skill'. To illustrate my point more plainly, I'll mention the demo of bestvon killing three marines as a skulk. Good skill? Most definitely not — at least in my opinion — the first two marines are one bite each — his POV looks more bewildered than anything after getting the three kills, but three kills is three kills. Are you going to put clips like that into the movie based on a set standard of skill, or is it a case by case basis?

For example, if dag kam submits a clip of himself killing a fade egg in a vent and labels the demo 'quietly dag kammed' or some other level of nonsense, like a recording of himself shooting a movement chamber in a vent, are you going to include that in the movie?

My point is you should make a set of requirements if you're looking for a certain level of skill. Only higher lifeform kills, 3+ skulk kills, etc. When I set out to make my own movie, I wanted to make it to advertise the game and try to get old players to come back, so I had intended to make a frag movie of something of everyone — regardless of skill — so that everyone could feel involved and to celebrate our toxic little community where just to field 12 players we have to pluck what little hair Admirable has left from his beautiful Irish head.

I'm asking because I have many other demos but it's debatable whether they could go into a frag movie. 'Community frag video' and 'nice frags' could mean anything, and I think you should briefly give a better idea of things you're trying to look for. I know that some people are wondering — like Gobot and myself — if there's going to be a blooper section, because you could probably just make an entire video based on that alone.

Anyways, good luck on trying to make the movie.

Good post, but I think anyone is capable making big frags when they got lucky enough. That said you are right, that NS1 is so complex game that you can see real skill from little things. This frag movie is going to Gibbz's vision of good frag movie. My sense of style used to be different to many other players. For example I still think my first frags (https://youtu.be/chQDCsZ9xt4?t=28) in AtomicNS is my best one even if I just kill two skulks but because I use perfect movement, positioning, game sense and aim, it's my favorite.

I want the movie to be dictated by the community in terms of frag quality. It will be subjective across the board but I would like to include as many people as possible. If someone sends in several frags, I'll try to screen for what looks good. Sometimes the most skillful plays don't look the best - sometimes a simple grenade throw can look amazing.

Also, there are many people capable of making skillfull plays, and I think your list is very short. Even gobot can aim.

As Tane said - anyone can pop off or get lucky.

Tane, stop talking about your book. We've read it 3000 times already in 15 years. Provide demos or gtfo

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1eqOR60NRX5zdx1cgGxzLvl1G5NJemod0/view?usp=sharing - 21:30 with viewdemo command.

It's an OK moment, I didn't kill that last skulk :/

I probably have 30000000 more moments but I only remember this one because people woo'd it :d

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1TixGiXHcl7W0viSEF-dbrmwxndGMYJpt/view?usp=sharing - gathered some demos, that matched with some local recordings i had, all the info is inside.

1.dem frags are right in the beginning, 01:40 timestamp. For some reason I copied the text file twice.

Hopefully they work as good frags :)
;D

Gibbz, I have played most of the gathers and I remember seeing lots of nice frags. I am 100% sure there are more than enough frags for a movie or two in that archive. Of course I mean "nice" as in they look good in frag movie not that they require amazing skill. Lots of these frags wouldn't ever happen in officials.

But since you are making a community frag movie I think it could be motivating to include more people rather than more impressive frags.

I also added a todo issue about creating an automated frag recorder. Its far at the bottom though. Its also quite a bit of work to do.

I also would like to make a few movies but they are on bottom of my todo list.
