A few rather irritating questions


I am not new to speedrunning. I am new to segmented speedrunning.

How does one record HL1 segments cohesively to demos?
How does that work? do you record demos then record them with fraps?

I want it to be non-edited and smooth like Quadrazids/9mmhandguns HL in 20:41
How do I approach that, what do I need?

How do I edit it appropriately so that people cannot accuse you of altering the footage?

It would be great if someone could help me out with this.





Some stuff to read. If you have more questions, feel free to ask.


Okay, thanks.
Does HLAE work with ANY mod?
I remember pestering .exe about it and it never worked for me.


There’s a thread for this kind of stuff, lots of useful things in the OP and it’s the most appropriate place to ask questions related to HL:


For future reference, it’s stickied at the top of this board.

Yes, it will work with any mod as long as that mod is running on the latest Steam build (i.e you need to own a copy of Half-Life on Steam for it to work).

It’s possible to play demos done on older Steam-based clients (like NGHL for example) in latest Steam by copying and pasting them into your steamapps/Half-Life/ folder and then using the ‘playdemo’ command, and if you want to use the ‘viewdemo’ command you can use HLAE’s demo conversion tool to make that work.
