Fortress Forever - Video + Audio Tutorials

AcidReniX's
FF Tutorials:

New - Tutorial 9, conc aiming.. look down.
--------------------------------------------------
Quick Links to all videos:

Youtube
Stage6 divx High quality
--------------------------------------------------

Tutorial 1: Conc Jumping
(Basic/Essential)
*High Quality Here

This tutorial demonstrates how to perform a concussion grenade jump. Conc jumping is an essential skill for scout, medic and offence players in general to know.

It is done by priming a concussion grenade and jumping when the grenade explodes using the kickback of the grenade to propel you across the map.
--------------------------------------------------

Tutorial 2: Trimping
(Basic/Essential)
*High Quality Here

In this tutorial I demonstrate how to perform a movement technique called Trimping. Trimping is where a player can gain height after jumping onto, and then off of, an elevated surface.

It is a very useful technique for offence and defence players.
--------------------------------------------------

Tutorial 3: Ramp Sliding
(Basic)
*High Quality Here

This is a tutorial to demonstrate how to perform a ramp slide. You will need to know how to conc jump and how air control works in half-life2 to perform this technique effectively.

You can also try combining the trimping tutorial with this one to jump when approaching the top of a ramp to fire youself over an enemy defender.
--------------------------------------------------

Tutorial 4: Bunny Hopping
(Mediocre)
*High Quality Here

In this tutorial I demonstrate how to perform a movement technique called Bunny Hopping. Bunny Hopping is a style of movement involving the jump button, strafe keys and turning your mouse. It gives you a speed increase and is useful for crossing large areas of the map or when mastered, small coridoors or even used in combat.
--------------------------------------------------

Tutorial 5: Default_fov
(Basic)

This is a quick tutorial to show you the differences between changing your fov from 80 to 120. Fov is your field of view and as demonstrated in this video, you can see much more around you if your field of view is larger. It isn't 100% nessesary to change it but I would highly recommend you gradually drift away from the default fov and get used to using a higher one. Even if your aim suffers a fractional amount you will get used to it and it will only benefit you later.
--------------------------------------------------

Tutorial 6: Flame Push
(Mediocre)

In this tutorial I demonstrate the Pyro's flame thrower push effect. The flamethrower has a slight kickback to it. You can use this kick back in conjunction with jumping to help you accelerate quite fast over wide open spaces.
--------------------------------------------------

Tutorial 7: Sharking
(Mediocre)

Sharking is a technique that allows you to maintain speed across water. This tutorial shows you how.
--------------------------------------------------

Tutorial 8: Demoman
(N/A)
*High Quality Here

In this tutorial I demonstrate the core principles of playing demoman.
You should consider this video more of a gameplay vid than a tutorial as it isn't really teaching anything specific, more analysing a style of play.
--------------------------------------------------

Tutorial 9: Conc Aiming
(Mediocre)

This tutorial was created to show players how to aim after you have been concussed. Its quite simple, however it takes a little practice. A lot of players were having difficulty with this one. Just remember... YOUR CROSSHAIR LIEZZZ!!
--------------------------------------------------




--------------------------------------------------
A LOT more coming soon, also working on the quality.
If you would like to request a tutorial, message or
comment on youtube.
--------------------------------------------------

Very nice. This is exactly the kind of thing I was hoping someone would make. Very well done.

One tut I think everyone should have would be BHopping. It's such an essential skill for both O and D that everyone should know how to do it.

Again, very well done.

Excellent tutorials, acid! This guy was imo one of the best scouts when I played tfc, he makes these moves look easy! Hopefully newbies will find their way to these videos.

These are great. Also, you can post high-res videos at www.stage6.com . If you could do that it would makes things easier to see. I'm sure we'd love to have links in the Wiki to your tutorials.

Thanks again.

Really great stuff. Very well spoken and clear. Well done.

EDIT: These should be posted on the main site. They are too good to waste.

You sir are awesome!

This will definitely get people into playing

I love the end of the rampsliding video. You snuck a "It's alot better than TF2" in there.

P.S: You were that guy sniping me the other night, right? *AE* 583 is my ingame name (I should change my signature XD

Yes the sniper would be me, sorry lol
Well I'm making the tutorials to hopefully get beginners who are enjoying the game to a higher skill level, which in turn attracts the old competitive players back to the game.

Also trying to advertise FF as a higher skill version of TF2, because there will be a lot of people soon who will think they are amazing at TF2 and who enjoy the basic fortress concept. FF will be appealing to those players sooner or later. Just have to wait

More video's probably coming tommorow, including some advanced trimps (not a tutorial).

Very awesome indeed. You take suggestions? Imagine if we had tons of videos like this on youtube! I also like how you went to skill-specific maps for certain skills. I can suggest maybe continuing with different maps to sort of show the public the variety of maps available for Fortress Forever.

Great job!

Great job acid. Stickied!

I would probably word the bunnyhopping tutorial slightly differently (although its already pretty good!). Strafing on the ground and jumping, or turning in a circle on the ground using strafe is actually quite different from the bunny hop mechanic, and might confuse some people.

I usually start teaching people by having them maintain speed after a conc jump, for just 1 or 2 skims. This is an easy skill that anyone can learn, and it can be used immediately in game. Then having them try that around a corner (introduce simple 1 button air control), for example monkey front door. Conc the midmap, turn left around the door.

If new players can learn to skim, but not air control, then you can quickly see why air control is useful and incorporate it, rather than the other way around (learning air control and then skimming). Then finally bunnyhopping comes from putting all those skills together.

I agree with shock on the bunnyhopping.

Other than that, these are great.

I have 2 questions:

1) How to make the console apear in FF.
2) How to make a video in FF.

I'm not as smooth as Arx, but can do some ingame movies or some tricks too and put them in Youtube.

But great great videos. The Bhop its the harder to understand, but trully great.

Long live Arx...

I just play the game with fraps going recording sound from microphone input.

Its quite hard to explain bunnyhopping without writing a script first, but I'm quite lazy and the technique I show in the tutorial is how I picked it up.

It's not the best tutorial, but it is the method I used. I didn't want to focus on using maintaining speed to learn how to bunnyhop, or people wouldn't learn how to do it, they would only learn how to aircontrol off concs and rockets.

Sharking is up btw.

And to get console, there's an option in your game, its something like, in the multiplayer / advanced or in the keyboard / advanced. There's a tickbox called "enable developer console".
