Thanks for the information.
Really looking forward to it!

We still have same problems as few weeks ago. Blaze's computer is broken and it's in service. Last night Xantom also said that he still has the same PL 30-40% so I really hope it will be fixed today...

Thanks for the info! It's going to be awesome!

I recorded the commentary by myself / votary / od, and will be merging it with the demos + uploading to youtube in HD.
Working on the cfg now - any suggestions / things which people have done wrong before / existing cfgs I can copy?

Nice Darff! Looking forward to see this spectacle from 3rd view. And with The Brother Brothers as commentators?! Sick combo. Can't wait.

I suggest a legoquake config for that movie. Another thing: rather make it too light than to dark. And use scr_autoid for names. Gl!
2013-06-10, 22:14
Legoquake wouldn't be too eyes-friendly to first time QW watchers?

Here's a test, how about these for textures/hud/settings?
The final vid will be encoded at a higher bitrate so don't worry about the blurs etc.
Think the RL model has a messed up texture (looks like the walls?) so if anyone has a link to a good one I can put it in, if not will leave as it is as it's not really that noticable

*edit: fixed armour numbers & weapons being invisible on teaminfo (seems can't get rid of the background rectangle without also getting rid of them)

Skins: like with a lot of the setup, I've gone for the nquake default (I did a fresh install), so the full red/white is what newbies will see, and experienced players have similar to these usually too. Maybe in other games they have fullbrights also? I don't know anything about other games.

Anyway, could potentially change to nice looking but easy to see skins, rather than fullbright - ideas on that?
2013-06-11, 10:32
I'd say go with primevil's 24 bit skins. Since the movie cfg is otherwise HD, why have ugly blobs in there?
Otherwise I really like the config.
If you use the 24bit skins, maybe use gl_powerupshell or what it is for quad etc instead of extra per-powerup skins too.
2013-06-11, 11:14
I'd prefer faithful skins, perhaps with forcecolors, that are bright'ish. Play with the contrast and they'll stand out a bit more while looking 10x better than ugly fullbrights.
2013-06-11, 11:17
OK, I'm downloading primevil's 24bit skins and will have a play around with them. Red for enemy, blue for team? Personal I use red for enemy but want to put on the video whatever most newbies will be familiar with...

Hmm I know its not the right place for it, but I'm getting a "dm3.lit file has incorrect size" error - seemingly with a number of different dm3.lit files placed in /qw/maps... ideas? The /qw/maps ones override the ones in the .pk3's right?
2013-06-11, 13:29
I have mine in a qw/lits folder, no idea if that helps or alters the precedence by which they are read.
I use fodquake and it seems to load them in this order:

where qwfolders are fodquake, qw, id etc.
2013-06-11, 23:28
Could someone please upload the demos someplace?
2013-06-11, 23:42
Round 2 - dm2 in HD w/commentary:

Hopefully will get a map per day out but can't commit to anything

Feedback / ideas appreciated. Maybe Vimeo would show the proper 60fps as youtube seems to have cut it down to 30
2013-06-12, 00:25
Very hard to understand your hud... :-D
2013-06-15, 00:28
Anyone that could help me get the demos?
2013-06-15, 06:05
Try (or pangela, I forget which) servers & type 'cmd dlist tvs', then 'cmd dl xxx' where xxx is the number of the demos which look like the final. Or I can email them to you if you send me your address in priv msg

Great, thank you both!

Enjoy it I will B-)
