Guys! I can't find some videos.

As i remeber there were intersting videos about using grenades in team fortress 2.
Thats were videos from developers with commentaries about how you could use grenades and why they cut them. As i remember i watched them on youtube. 6 or 7 years ago.
Of course it was pre-beta gameplay (even map was in grey colors) but grenades were with animation and stuff.

Can someone recall this and share a link?

Someone said that to aim good as scout you should slide your target through your crosshair by strafing left and right. Not moving mouse a lot. And when target matches - just clicking, not extra-sharp-turboreaction-hyperactive-mousemovements.
//BUTTT!!//

When I try to play this way I can't hit almost anyone - time the target passes through cross is wa-a-ay too little. So if I'm ever doing a good shot it's only because I'm yanking mouse left or right before shot.

So - I see target passing (it's to late to press fire) - then I estimate where target would be next 30ms, then I actually yanking crosshair to that point - then - shooting. If all done well the target getting hit.

But my reslts are still unimpressive, especially for myself. And I'm getting mentally and physically tired after using this style. Kinda brainstrain, heartbeating. How do I improve aiming? If you're coming just to say "Practice-Pr...-Brr..-Blurp"... C'mon, no need for truisms.

I wish there is some scout lesson, captured in 60FPS and shown slow-mo. With hand movements synchronised in a bottom of a screen.

To clarify: I do not approve vanity, that's why I'm typing what I'm typing as answer to you.

Why should it be exactly "doubled" and not "oneandhalfed" for example? So, your 1st paragraph is complete bla-bla, sry. Look at scores list afterall.

About second paragraph - there is a lot of exercises on this site. In particular, exactly that one that you've described. You should look more attentively.

Cheers.

Yes, vanity. Because nobody should never feel good for doing better at something than they expected. Clearly my post was intended to hijack the thread and make people praise my amazing feat of skill, rather than attempt to provide a point of comparison for the other user whilst providing background as to why my score is what it is. Sod off.

And yes, I do see the "prizes" list. It's set extremely low, potentially even impossible without either cheating, or attempting to blindly click just before it changes so that you get lucky. Why would the website put fair scoring up when it hands out reward "money" for it? Making it artificially low is in their interest, to keep stubborn people coming back for more and spending more time looking at their advertisements. And if you were talking about the "Rating" section, congratulations for pointing to an online scoreboard. Because online scoreboards never get cheated. Cheat Engine has clearly never been used to artificially slow down Flash Player before. I'm sure every name up there is legitimately reacting faster than even mentally possible for about half the (tested) population in the study I checked, on top of having to make a physical motion of any time required, half-again or doubled or whatever way tickles your fancy and doesn't make you complain over a difference of literally milliseconds. A difference that is almost imperceptible and entirely obfuscated by in-game latency anyway. A player with 80 ping has far more leeway with reaction time than a player with 240, after all.

If there's a better test that describes exactly what I was asking for, why not just link it? Instead we get you being a douche, with no help for OP. Lovely. http://aim400kg.ru/train/?a=fa&ln=en was the closest thing I saw to what I described, but it doesn't really work as a Scout trainer due to the target disappearing on its own instead of waiting until the player clicks it. Kind of hard to improve at target snapping when you have to already be at a skillful baseline

Short Version:
120hz monitor + coffee = Platinum Scout

Long Version:
I am a Sniper main, but I am also a pretty good Scout. I find that you play different hitscan classes, you'll help yourself become better at your main. Don't play your main all the time, as you will burn yourself out. Take a break, play another class, then come back to your main and shred some ass.

I also own a 120hz monitor and I'm a caffeine addict. I've also been playing in the competitive scene since 2010.

Oh yeah, you want the lowest lerp possible to help you with hitscan. Add this to your autoexec.cfg file:

cl_cmdrate 66
cl_interp 0.0152
cl_interp_ratio 1
cl_lagcompensation 1
cl_pred_optimize 2

Why haven't you given up playing this game yet?

For the longest time I found the game fun, the WAR! update being the highlight of that time.

Then the Mannconomy happened.

I still played for fun but I traded ALOT too.

I eventually traded more than I played.

Then I wasn't able to play at all and I was gone for awhile.

Now when I play the game it is nothing like, NOTHING like, the game I played before the Mannconomy update, and I main Demoman (which is still best stock).

I installed the no-cosmetics mod and I still mainly play Demoman, but wow. WOW.

I haven't given up because I have a lot of friends who play and a server group who does things other than TF2, so its a nice cycle. I cannot play serious TF2 anymore to save my life unless I am an Engineer or a Pyro, so I enjoy more casual servers (like the Mantrain).

I don't trade, I toss most of my MvM parts, and I've swapped out a lot of my normal weapons for stranges... but I only visit the same five servers when I do play. I am hoping to actually cycle the Mantrain back into my servers list.... and I plan on donating a good chunk of my tax returns into funding the rest of the server cost.

Anyone know of one?

Tried a quick search for one. Most of them have rotating maps, tho.

Good luck, mang.

Hi, doods.

Who almost reflectively mumbles "spy-spy-spy" in a game? Can't find this quote in a wiki but i've clearly heared it. No, not snipers "Stab, stab, stab".

Also, is there any art of pyro's face as if it is a black girl?Domination quotes (Sniper and Engi) proved to me strong enough pyro's gender finally. And that voice can only belong to black woman, coz, u know, anyone can distinguish white/black by ear. Only option - she is black husky woman.

Considering that the Spy and the Pyro literally have the same voice actor, I don't think you can use how Pyro sounds as a data point.

And Foxxy Love's voice actress, Cree Summer, has played characters who are black, white, of indeterminable non-white race, and even males.

For a about a week I've had a problem with source Games. Mainly Team Fortress 2, but this has also occurred in Black Mesa: Source.

The game freezes for about 5-30 seconds with sound looping over and over. I've had the latest Nvidia drivers installed properly and have no problems with Games that do not run on Source!

Thanks for help

Ah yeah, sounds pretty similar to what I had. You running an nvidia card? It's a known issue with them, unfortunately. I replaced mine, solved the issue.

Gotcha. Not even fan-made maps or sounds downloaded from custom servers, though? I'd count that as a mod.

So, has it allways been here? Or will it end with Valve updates of the games + Newer Nvidia drivers? I have not had this problem before now, funny why it should show up now out of nowhere!!

Business as usual, friends. Post your videos here as long as they are not remixrelated, those go into the other according thread.

Attached video is AntoineDeLak's newest work. You will be both amazed, amused and aroused. Awesome.

I know they said the video was more to explore technical wizadry than plot, but with a little polish it would have been perfect. Still enjoyed it though.

Boss Mode - Doomsday Evolution Mode
http://fc.xunlei.com/c/1370429279986.shtml?u06id=13711562576427666679

Up to 4 players can control the Boss Mecha, with the other players banding against it. There's some details I don't care to translate right now, sorry.

Also, new map, Doomsday Street.

In lighter news, have a fan-drawn 4-koma that chronicles the trials and tribulations of being a Battle Nurse.

To be fair, Hellboy was awoken in WWII, but because this doesn't appear to take place in the same universe, I assume they mean the comic...which wasn't written until much later.

Was missing 3, but since posting I have received them and/or confirmation of their delay. I've emailed those who are waiting on their gifts so they know.

So.. that means there aren't any orphaned prompts at the moment, but thank you for the offer medacris!

To keep with Smissmassy spirit, since you seemed so keen and have been a regular for so long, I'm happy to take on one of your prompts but you'll have to wait a while for me to get to you. That alright with you? Hit me up via email yo (it's in the field, if it hasn't been peppered enough throughout this whole thread lel)
