I think we should put the movie out with the nfo, then just a separate pack with the demos/saves. Don’t put it all in one .zip/.rar, some people still actually use 56k…I go to a couple sites including GameDaily forums (they started out as a GameFAQs spinoff until gamedaily bought them, but nobody there likes gamedaily really. Its just a good social community with game fans) and a site called LUELinks. I don’t know if any of you has heard of it, but it’s a massive PRIVATE forum and link submission site. In order to go there you need to be able to access LUE on GameFAQs which requires 150 karma (I think), and you had to sign up for it before they closed submissions to LUE. THEN if you can go to LUE, you are allowed into LUELinks. It’s complicated, but an extremely cool site, I’ve already submitted this site’s link, and I plan to submit the video link when its done. Should be really popular and get thousands of hits, and usually has a stem-effect because people there put out links to other sites, and it will go all over the internet. Maybe if anyone has a SomethingAwful account, they could post it there.I think we should all be PM’d the link before it is public to get it out there and get credit for release.

hmm what exactly is nfo? I always see them in no-cd patch or some sort of that things but never seen them in gaming movies. I think txt or html would be more common.and yeah I agree with o40. there are some tricks we should explain separated from basic tricks.


#3

I refered to readme.txt or hl2dq.nfo, its two ways to do the same thing. I think readme.txt is the way to go. If ascii graphics will be included, we name it something.nfo. :slight_smile:

erm, havnt read any of the replies above. just thought I’d briefly post my views. excuse me if its already been said.savefiles should not be included imo, just because I can see several people trying to beat our times, and if they did (unlikely, but possible i guess) i dont think any of us particularly want them coming and sayiong “0mG i 4m t3H l33tz0r i r0ck3d uR t1m3 u sucKz0r” etc etc.not sure if anyone would bother reading commentaries about each individual run, perhaps in the .txt file we could just have a paragraph or whatever by each runner, who can either mention some of their runs, the problems they had, their favourite bits etc etc.I would really like a trick / blooper section on there, I think it could be quite amusing.just my 2 cents…

I have a question:Should we have a “HL2DQ” logo before the actual HL2-intro begins?There has been some discussion about it (these has been made during the project):http://img207.imageshack.us/my.php?image=hl272kw.jpghttp://img174.exs.cx/img174/9940/hl2dq47nx.th.jpghttp://img119.exs.cx/img119/5986/hl2dq56vd.th.jpghttp://img513.imageshack.us/my.php?image=hl2logo28lf.gifOr maybe as a background if we would make a dvd-menu.What do you guys say?


#8

Well the logo could be IN the background if we make a DVD menu, but I think the idea was to have the layout like the menu background is for HL2, and with edited avis of either some of the best tricks in the run, or tricks that we did outside of the run, continously looping in the background.


#9

okey, but how about before the actual HL2-intro? If you watch the new Far Cry speed-run over at SDA; ‘Knu’ has a brief ‘wallpaper’ with “Far Cry Done Quick” (or something) and his name and time…I’m not saying that we should have this, I’m just asking…


#10

In the final pack, I think you should rename the files numerically, or at least include a batch file that can do/undo this. It makes it a lot easier for someone who is trying to watch the demos sequentially - all they will have to do is type ‘playdemo 1’ or ‘startdemos 1 2 3’ etc. Anyway, here’s a naming scheme that could be used:QUOTE p2_d1_trainstation_01_intro.dem…0.demPre-update
