Is there anyway to get rid of the weapon pickup effect that happens at around 9 seconds into this video.
Also any other advice or criticism would be cool (i really dont know what im doing :D).
Re record the demo with cl_drawhud 0 then mask the top right side of the new render over the top of the old render or replace HudLayout.res in the hl2 folder with this https://www.dropbox.com/s/ixwj4xstp3es6hg/HudLayout.res?dl=0 I’ve never got it working but it may for you. To avoid that in the future wait ~1-2 seconds before unpausing and recording the demo/segment.
Otherwise, that run was pretty damn good, you picked up the rocked launcher faster than DwaHMoV!
playdemo demoname; wait 30; demo_pause; wait 1000; startmovie filename; demo_resume
Just adjust the second wait until the icons fade out. However I had some problems with audio and video not syncing up properly when using this method so you may need to record again using the normal method.
