How to make route videos


#1

Seriously guys, wtf

  1. Look at route videos for other maps, consult people. Figure out what our health and other item count is going to be, WORST CASE SCENARIO, at the beginning of the map.
  2. Start at the previous map. Apply your health and ammo stats to Gordon. “ent_fire player sethealth xx”, I don’t know the command for suit, but you can just give yourself item_suit and item_ar2_grenade etc.
  3. now is the time to actually perform the route and record it in demos. Segment as often as you want, it’s only a route video. MAKE SURE YOU RECORD THE ENTIRE MAP. YES, ALL OF IT. ESPECIALLY THE BEGINNING.
  4. If stuff from your route carries over into the next map (ABH speed, or whatever), record the first part of that map as well. This is especially important for comparisons. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ojtaFKbwrnU <-- Here’s a bad route video because of this.

Notes:
-MAKE SURE YOU RECORD THE ENTIRE MAP. YES, ALL OF IT. ESPECIALLY THE BEGINNING. (Cutscenes are an exception)
-Play on Hard.
-Post the video on these forums.
