Trimp Concing - for that extra boost.

Whenever I get the chance I try to use a trimp conc, which can give you a much needed boost when used together.

I have thrown together 4 examples of Trimp Concing on 3 different maps to give people an idea. Hope it helps. It might save your bacon like it has for me many times.


For anyone interested, I record a demo or multiple demos in game, close FF, then open Fraps, open FF, play the demo(s) one by one and record using Fraps at 40 FPS, half the size, (fraps saves the video as quite a large file size), so I then open the video(s) in Windows Live Movie Maker (WLMM), do any editing like combining multiple videos together or adding text/screens. Then I sign into Live (through WLMM), and upload the video directly from WLMM to YouTube at 720p resolution which allows for an HD option on my video for better quality. And WLMM manages to save and upload the finished video at a considerably reduced file size than what Fraps saved it as while keeping all of the quality. (one video went from 500mb Fraps size to 32mb WLMM size) And then without even opening YouTube in my browser, my video is already uploaded with a full description, tags etc... Windows Live Movie Maker saves a lot of time... and really takes care of a huge chunk.

I will , managed to complete 3 of them in not very long atall... It takes a few uploads before the YouTube search engine starts to include your videos, so I'll start taking some general playing videos and any more tricks and tutorials I can think of to get YouTube to acknowledge my channel to try and gain interest.

Again, discovered it on my own, and now I use it as much as possible instead of a normal jumping conc.

This is sorta depressing. How long have you been playing the game exactly? First the aardvark ramp trick, now trimp concing?

It's just depressing to find out that someone who's apparently been playing this game for awhile is just now discovering these simple things, makes you wonder exactly how much the average person in FF actually knows about the game.

You definately seem interested in expanding your knowledge of FF. You should really consider watching pickups, even if you don't care for the pickup players or their rules, you would still learn a lot from watching them. I learned what I could on my own in TFC but I must admit my knowledge of the game increased dramatically as soon as I decided to just spec good players and learn their tricks.

Learning the basic mechanics is only a very small portion of someone's skill. Learning where and how to use those tricks is the valuable part. The pickup players learn stuff all the time from one another.

By the way, this is technically double jump concing. Double jumps are done by jumping twice within a set period of time. Trimps are activated by jumping while rampsliding.

That said, there is a bug where you can trigger a double jump and a trimp at the same time which makes you go super high, and is what zE's trimp skill maps are based around for the most part. This makes the line between the two techniques blurrier than it really should be.

I've never heard of the expression "double jumping" in FF, I always assumed it was just trimping, because on trimp maps that is my technique, I usually make up speed bhopping, then bhop onto the ramp crouched, then stand up and hold jump as I hit the ramp and it gets great distance, that's how I beat zE's and other trimp maps. He actually taught me how to do it.

The only time I properly trimp using that description would be on maps like Aardvark when I get launched into a rampslide. Or if I get a lucky conc and hit a ramp perfectly so it launches me really high in a yard or so.

You can thank zE for that! he originally started calling his maps "trimp_****" but it's mainly double jumps and not trimping you're doing on the maps. So then he tried calling his maps "djump_*****" but I don't think it caught on like the original "trimp" name

That's where I first heard the term 'trimping'. It's essentially, from what I see, just jumping into a ramp at higher speeds to get vertical height, although via physics differences - but as far as what it looks like, it's the "double jump" FF has.

Also I coined the term trimpconcing. Also, as far as I know I was the first to really discover and utilize it. Faggots.

You dug up a 3 year old thread and reported it? Don't you have anything better to do?
