Hello,

first I hope I post in the right section, sry if not.

I have a week to kill, so I have reinstalled quake and try some trick maps. Im clearly rusty. I feel pathetic when trying my own maps.
I don't feel like my skills are gone, but I always lack speed on the first jumps. I can't do the last jump on ztrain even after thousand attemps.
I watched some demos by bent on ztricks and ztricks2. It seems so easy. So my question is how we do a perfect circle jump, what's wrong with mine ?

Thanks.

Cheers. Well, there's this piece on it: http://wiki.quakeworld.nu/QW_physics_ground
The rest is practice, I suggest you use newhud (scr_newhud 1) and hud_show_speed 1 and just grind the map called ztrain and others. Won't be fun, but it should get you there.

It is easy to learn:

Step 1: Watch those QWD demos where you can see perfect circle jump with hud_keys_show 1, hud_speed_show 1 and demo_slowest. Repeat this step 30 times, so you can memorize the exact sequence of keys pressed and mouse movement.

Step 2: Join a server and try to reproduce what you just watched.

Step 3: Repeat steps 1 and 2 until your take off speed is always at least 480. (take off speed is the speed you got when u press +jump, not landing speed).

Yo, check this out :
Ztricks - Keys Pressing Sequence
Zjumps - Keys Pressing Sequence
Hoppa2 - Keys Pressing Sequence

Especially look into last one (hoppa2) which first jump is pretty difficult to gain proper speed (IMO).
Good Luck !

Thank you. I use "hud_speed2_show 1", it helps. But having 480 on take off seems pretty hard to master.
