3D Lines Tutorial

A tutorial covering the aspect of 3D tracking in Enemy Territory and process of creating and compositing the 3D Lines effect.

Deploying ETPro Match Servers

The thing with competitive match servers is that they really don't vary much, they're almost exact duplicates of each other excluding a few configuration options such as hostname and passwords. If you go to a GamesTV ETPro server, and then hop over to your own - they will be pretty much the same.

When the servers start to become slightly different however, then problems occur - for example:
  • ETPro match servers not supporting ETTV.
  • Out of date configurations.
  • Staggered u

CamTrace Tutorial

I did not know anything about CamTrace two weeks before the end of submissions for the ET Mini Movie Contest. There were no tutorials on CamTrace (the official was outdated and superboyy's was outdated and too complicated for beginners.) I was determined to finish my movie (100% cams) in time for the contest. What surprised me was the lack of tutorials on CamTrace. I put this down to ego movie makers who don't want any competition (please don't start an argument about this statement!) Anywa

Setup Your FFDShow

I was reading the previous tutorial from decoding videos by ag0n and I thought the tool he had made doesnt't fit to my image of adjustable or good decoder. Also others decoding 'tutorials' in crossfire has been quite narrow peaks to setting your PC up to hardcore video watching. That's why I decided to share my modest knowledge about FFDShow and video watching.

FFDShow is a tool for encoding or decoding many video and audio formats,

For the awaiting connection issue it is caused by an appointed net_

Running tournaments succesfully

Almost everytime time I play at a random cup, I get frustrated by the admins. Thats why I decided to write a few words about how running cups could be done better. All this is just based on my personal opinions and experience so this might not be the Universal Truth and sometimes you need to make compromises.

1. Being creative is always nice, but don't implement too many non-standard maps. People like to play cups to show their skills and prove something, playing random maps without tacs can

Automatic SLAC on\off for HLSW

When SLAC was released, a lot of problems appeared. Some of them were were fixed, some didn't. One of the biggest problems for me was, that I had to constantly switch game exe file in HLSW, so i can play on both ETPRO and trickjump servers. After sometime I've decided to write a little tool which, will automatically use SLAC for all etpro servers, which don't use PB.

Hide that porn

Okay, I know this is a very old method and some or most of you most likely know it BUT, here we go.

1. Put all porn or w/e into 1 folder....

2. Right Click on the folder and hit rename. Erase the name of the folder so there is nothing there.

3. If you try to stop here windows will tell you that you need to provide a name. So to get around this… with the name field still active hold down ALT and press 0160 on the number pad

Customizing your Quake Live config & how to watch demos

A well customized Quake Live config that fits your preferences well enough is the beginning of good game play. Quake is one of the few games that allows extreme config customization. This is one aspect that makes Quake, in my opinion, better than all other shooters and creates extra opportunities.
