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.

I was lucky enough to be on the server when the new vid was being made. I was just kind of hit and miss with conc aiming and that tut helps.

My favorite is a series of backwards IC jumps. You can go across a yard fast and take very little damage. It seem when you are IC jumping backwards that you are still inside the shockwave but outside the damage radius.

We created Stage6 with the mission of empowering content creators and viewers to discover a new kind of video experience. Ultimately, the continued operation of Stage6 was a very expensive enterprise that required an enormous amount of attention and resources that we at DivX are not in a position to continue to provide. There are a lot of other details involved, but at the end of the day it's really as simple as that.

The DivX experience will continue, of course. Every day new DivX Certified devices arrive on the market making it easy to move video beyond the PC. Products powered by DivX Connected, our new initiative that lets users stream video, photos, music and Internet services from the PC to the TV, are hitting retail outlets. We remain committed to empowering content creators to deliver high quality video to a wide audience, and we'll continue to offer services that will make it easy to find videos online in the DivX format.

It's been a wild ride, and none of it would have been possible without the support of our users. Thank you for making Stage6 everything that it was.
It whould be smart to find a new place to upload the vid's that where uploaded on stage6.
