    Well many of you know by now that Valve has introduced a replay function into TF2 which allows the player to save their replay and edit it and then upload the finished product onto Youtube. Since I see so many TF2 players in this place, I was wondering if anyone has come up with some great videos or clips? Would be great to share em [​IMG]


    Let me stress that this thread is NOT to spam for views on your video just so you can get the achievements/hat. It is for quality videos and constructive criticism ONLY

    Would also be great to see some tips and tricks for the newbies such as myself >.< I just figured out how to use the take feature. At first i thought you combined takes to form a clip but I know now that you pause and change camera angles and then resume to get shots from different angles stitched together

    I don't have any replays yet. but is it alright if I post others? Since I know for a fact the owners of the videos don't have accounts here.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    All source games have the ability to record and view demos, and have had this for a long long time.

    EDIT: Opened TF2 now, I see they've added a little Theatre mode thing to make it easier.

    I don't want to upload mine because it's garbage >.<
    I'm also annoyed at all the TF2 floods by people just to get a hat..

    No it's hardly different at all, the only difference would be a different UI and the free look mode has smooth natural aspects to its use. Apart from that it's just a glorified demo player that allows for exporting as well.

    the first soldier one was the best... but still dumb on the soli's behalf
    second one, medic was TERRIBLE - not worth watching
    the third one was just unfortunate for that heavy... then stupid medic healing another medic

    ok, i wouldnt really know. I quit playing tf2 a year ago cause the community only cares about trading items all day instead of actually playing.

    There's alot of servers where Trading is not allowed. (as in anyone who asks to trade in the server will be kicked.)
    Jus' sayin'.

    I'm afraid none of my favorite servers has the replay function enabled so I won't be able to make a replay :/

    This is very true, this is just the old SourceTV function with a couple of new functions. However, some of these new functions are pretty neato.

    The camera is focused on Engineer because I didn't notice how awesome one part was untill I uploaded it.

    So instead of watching the horrible Engineer(Me),Watch that Blu Soldier that comes along pretty early in the video.

    That's besides the point, the fact that there have been so many items (weapons and hats) added, it has broken the shit out of the game. Adding in the whole trading concept, mann co store, more items and hats being added every couple weeks have turned what was a nifty class based, team shooter with an interesting art style into a promotion whore for new games on Steam.

    You need to find the right people to play with. If you find fun people that aren't completely obsessed with items you're going to find yourself enjoying Team Fortress 2 a whole lot more.

    That's what I've been doing and I certainly have not stopped playing it due to some silly virtual items.

    I still play it occasionally with some friends, although the fact is that a lot of these silly virtual items are imbalanced like crazy and many people use them (ie: shortstop), it just isn't the same game anymore.

    You should enter this in the Saxxy awards.

    The Shortstop has higher damages at mid to long range than the Scattergun, as well as dealing higher crit and mini-crit damage per pellet, coupled with these it has a higher attack speed (near half of the Scattergun) as well as 1.01 second reload time (that reloads the full 4 shots of the gun) compared to a 0.56 second reload time per shell on the Scattergun. There are many other weapons that are greatly imbalanced such as the Half-Zatoichi, Sun-on-a-Stick, Backburner, Powerjack, Back Scratcher, etc. There are just way to many since the first small batch of new weapons that were introduced in early updates, and the game has just been screwed over with too much shit.

    I probably would play on some vanilla servers, although there are little to none in Australia.
