Guide: How to create and submit footage
So you're eager to help out and support the W+M2 Gas Fueled channel with your own pyro antics, but you don't know how to create and submit your footage.
Well this guide will explain the basics on how to do just that.
- Recording footage trough the console:
When ingame open up the console with ~ and type the following into it: record 01
This will create a .dem file under the name 01 until you leave the server or stop recording.
To stop recording the demo file simply type in "stop" and TF2 will stop recording and save your demo.
If you want to record again simply repeat this process but switch out the name.
- Replaying your demo's
If you just made a good demo and want to watch it back you can by doing the following:
Go out of the server and open up your console and write the following: demoui
This will open up a small menu, press browse and find your demo.
wait for it to load and enjoy watching your successful moment of glory.
Tip: remember the time or tick when your kill or moment happens.
- Finding and uploading your demo's
To find all your recorded demo files head down to the following folder:
C:\Steam\steamapps\username\team fortress 2\tf
Copy your file to your desktop and upload it to your favourite mirror.
Such as Mediafire, Dropbox or Megaupload for example
- Sending in your demo files
This part should be easy simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your demo file.
Or post your footage here in the W+M2 group, either in the comments or at the announcement when we are collecting specific footage.
Don't forget to add your preferred name (nickname for in the video), to describe what happens in the demo file and on which time frame we can find it.
- Try to keep the files small, the best way to record everything during your play session it to start and stop a recording when you've died.
- Write your good demo's down! Best is to do this on a piece of paper or skip to a bigger number with the next recording so its easy to find it back.
- File your good demo's in a different folder and remove the unneeded ones to save space.
