#82 Rewind II details revealed in News

I would caution against the Motel 6 unless you are desperate. Very strict rules about how many people you can bring in + surveillance + bad neighborhood.

Oh, and my room's ceiling leaked by the end of my stay last year.

#25 Rewind II invites and closed qualifier announced in News

Almost all South American countries also are not apart of the Visa Waiver Program in the US, meaning they have to go through the full process of applying for a Visa rather than an ESTA like a lot of European countries get to do. This process is an absolute nightmare and pretty much makes a team of six South Americans coming to the US for a TF2 tournament impossible.

I recall Powah wanting to go to ESEA LAN for Mad Men and, aside from financial concerns, the visa process is always what stopped him.

#20 Toth 2017 Appreciation thread in TF2 General Discussion

And of course I missed people.

Huge shout outs to the SFM team:

Winglet making that hilarious Overwatch birb animation that was adored by the audience. Seeing Phil the Robin smile with Bastion made my heart melt.

Callegos for making the best Dota Fortress intro I've seen yet. I was incredibly proud of mine last year, but he somehow topped it.

Krunkidile gets a second shoutout here for that fucking hilarious PUBG intro, accurately representing the state of a PUBG ranked game.

Uberchain for pioneering our avian-focused theme for this year, and making an incredibly cute intro for the event. Phil the Robin will always hold a special place in my heart.

The Web Team

This is something that Lange should cover but I know our web team worked OVERTIME this year. Alongside him: Erynn, Ben Congdon, and Justin Kim all put a ton of work into getting our site and donation tracker running properly for cash donations. You'll never notice the amount of work it takes for this thing to run properly, but trust me it takes A LOT.

Pt 2

Ryan "Krunkidile" H.

Holy shit you're the funniest guy I've ever met, both in person and through your work. I don't know where I can really can go from that. You turned a dumb idea about a screaming bird into a proper SFM intro within 24h. You have an infectious laughter, have incredible talent, and we are really happy to have you.

Mala.

COOKIES

Jeff Infusino, President of Camp One Step.

I was already very attached to Camp One Step before last year, but Jeff's presence in 2016 for our show solidified my love for Children's Oncology Services Inc and all they do for children. Jeff is such a down to earth guy and I can't think of anyone who is better suited to be heading this charity. For this year's event, one of the biggest downsides in my mind when we were considering that our studio would no longer be local to Chicago is that One Step's presence would be minimal to non existent at the event due to logistical concerns. Turns out, Jeff took a flight down to Santa Ana to take part in our show anyway! Words cannot express how happy I was when I saw this news, I am so glad we chose this charity for our event, and I never want to stop supporting it.

Uncle Dane

Hey What's Up! Thank you for being an incredible sport all weekend and just being an all around great guy to hang out with. Can't wait to see you next year.

Harsha Bandi

Harsha, you were a VERY last minute addition to our event but you worked out unbelievably well. I knew you'd have incredible chemistry with Sideshow and Samiface, but you also gelled incredibly well with the rest of our talent. You also ate a potentially fatal lab-grown hot pepper for the kids. I see a bright future with you and TotH.

Kurtis The Gamer

Kurt, thank you for being you. I'm not going to try to top how Lange described your effect on the show: https://twitter.com/VanCamp/status/912914699049689088

Jason "Whisker" Baxter

Spreadsheet wizard. Deathmobile driver. Mustache connoisseur. The glue that somehow held TotH 2017 together in it's early stages and was always a pleasure to work with. There is a very specific reason I carpooled with you every time we left the hotel this year. I always came out of that car with a smile on my face. I love you man.

Thank you to the donors for making this event happen and bringing some light into kids lives who really need it right now.

Thank you to the TotH founders for having faith in me and giving me another chance.

That's all I got. See you next year.

PT 1

I've always been of the opinion that it is genuinely pointless to do these kind of shoutouts because you inevitably are going to miss people who contributed a great deal, but I am home from my flight, I think I MIGHT be able to list off people. This is going to be a long one, strap yourselves in:

IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER

Alex "Lange" Van Camp:

You are the reason I got into producing live shows. We share an absolute insane drive for making shows the best they can possibly be, and it's always a pleasure to work with you. I still have yet to meet any broadcast producer that shares the attention to detail that you have for shows. You remain one of the most entertaining on-screen personalities I've ever seen when paired with the buds, and you always have a solution for every problem we run into. It will always be an honor to work with you, no matter what the event is, just ring me up.

Austen "tagg" Wade:

Most of you just saw tagg as an absolutely hilarious on-screen personality, but he did so much more for this show than that (and has for TotH the last 3 years). Tagg was the first one in the studio to do the really dirty work in the studio when it came to shit that nobody wanted to do. Wiring cables, trips to Micro Center because we're stupid and didn't have the correct cables, hooking up and troubleshooting Player PCs, tweaking camera angles, operating a mini jib in the studio that nobody had ANY experience with and creating some incredible live camera shots. I won't bother to list more, if it wasn't pleasant to do and was essential for the show, Tagg did it. He is an unsung hero of Tip of the Hats behind the scenes.

Mark Schwartzkopf:

Tip of the Hats audio workflow is kind of FUCKED

https://i.imgur.com/bVs75Vw.jpg

In the past, we've had Anthony "Airon" Oetzmann run the audio for our shows because he was the only one talented and patient enough to put up with the crap we throw at our audio guys. Mark was a volunteer from GDQ that Lange brought in when Airon unfortunately couldn't make it to this year's event due to work commitments. Despite how horribly unconventional our show is from an audio perspective, Mark did not skip a beat. There will always be mistakes in live shows, but I can't recall a single moment where a critical error happened with Mark on the helm of our Behringer x32 mixer. We didn't have audio of the Getawhale birthday segment, but that is 100% my fault for being dumb and not giving Loris a mic on the live roaming cam. Mark is an incredible audio engineer, and I really hope we can get both him and Airon together for TotH 2018.

Erin "Erynn" B:

You somehow created a miracle and made a Dota Fortess segment run smoothly. Erynn created a captain's UI to pick/ban players which was LONG overdue.

http://puu.sh/xJXEW/9b424cfb51.png

As a result, between the UI and Erynn perfectly organizing players, the segment went smooth as butter and we all had a ton of fun. To put this into context, this has not happened in the entirety of this segment's existence. Something has always gone wrong with Dota Fortress, either because of organizational missteps or graphics. Seeing Lange smile in the green room and finally enjoy a Dota Fortress segment was one of the best things I'm going take out of this year, and it's all because of the work you put in Erynn. I'm not even going to try to list all of the things you've done otherwise for TotH, she has worked on the donation tracker as well as some of our NodeCG graphics for the event. I think Lange is finally breathing a sigh of relief that someone on the TotH staff finally can take some of the workload off him in terms of his engineering role. Erynn is a hero.

ESPORTS ARENA:

John Todd Christensen, Samuel Fry, Mike, and Kevin who helped us out SO MUCH at this event. Normally these dudes head home at about 5 PM, but Sam + Todd stayed until the end of our show each day making sure we were okay. Some of the people who went home were working remotely to resolve issues when they propped up, such as our internet issues (Shoutout to Kevin for resolving our internet issues at 11:30 PT at night during the event wrap up). By the end of the event, if felt like we were family.

ALSO FUCKING ESA DAVE:

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DKROCleUQAEOan-.jpg

I LOVE THIS DOG.

Jasmine "Jasbutts" Ho

This woman does more work than you ever will realize. Every single time I looked across from my production PC, Jasmine was creating a new bird emote for the stream. And the fucking shirt designs, don't get me started. FUCKING LOVE THAT BIRD. Can't wait for my hoodie to get in. Thank you Jasmine for all you've done.

Mike "Getawhale" Lockman

You are the best host I've ever worked with. If you really went for it, I feel like you would become the heir apparent of RedEye or Machine. You get so much unwarranted garbage from this scene from people who just don't really get what it takes to take on the role you have. Mike has carried our event for three years now from a hosting perspective and brought an incredible element to our show that I'm not sure we could honestly find anywhere else. He drives donations, he keeps our show going in a proper direction, and he brings smiles to our faces. You're an incredible talent and I wouldn't trade you for any other host out there.

Josh "Sideshow" Wilkinson

You're my best friend, and have never failed to put me in good spirits no matter how bad things are going. You have some supernatural ability to make everyone happy, even if it's at your own expense. You took off an entire week of an incredible Overwatch opportunity to be apart of our event, something I will be forever grateful for. This event just would not be the same without you. I booked a $500 flight to LA next week for Overwatch Contenders FInals while I was sitting in Chicago waiting for my flight back to Toronto just because I absolutely needed to see you and Bren again one more time. You both are genuinely some of the best people I've had the pleasure of knowing.

Ryan "Loris" Callard

Raised spirits, created some amazing videos. We went into this event knowing there was no way we could replace Andy Bones in terms of event videography, but somehow we did. I came into the studio Sunday morning and watched a WIP version of the outro and broke down in tears. You are incredibly talented and exceeded my expectations by a mile. I am so happy you're apart of our family now.

Andy "Mathsad" Pappas

Seems like yesterday we observed a $50,000 Overwatch event together and somehow convinced Blizzard we were an 8-man observing team. You learn incredibly fast and have amazing talent. You have an incredible eye for live production and camerawork. I'm so happy we were able to finally get you out to a TotH event and help take the load off people like me and Lange. You have a bright future ahead of you, and I can't wait to work with you again.

Wyatt "Ma3la" R.

Whatever dude. Please keep coming back. You bring so much joy to this event. I don't know how I can describe it beyond that.

Samantha "Samiface" Emery

Thank you for getting us into the door at Esports Arena, and being an amazing talent on-site. I have never seen anyone have so much passion for TF2, you've gone way beyond the call of duty countless times for our scene and care so much. Also thank you for hosting such an amazing after party on the last night, I can't wait to see you again for Contenders.

Joshua "Geel9" Coffey

No Trade Holds. You dropped $2,000 during setup to get our PCs VR-ready so we could run a silly Bridge Crew segment. You've funded so many TF2 events at this point that I've lost count. You've paid my way to so many events and given me experiences I'm never going to forget. The hate you get is completely unwarranted, and you're an incredible guy.

#15 How can we improve camerawork during matches? in TF2 General Discussion

Back then, it was impossible to observe within the client with our spec plugins without running the servers in insecure. There's been a lot of advances within the TF2 client from the Essentials developers for i61 however, so who knows what's possible at this point.

All you need for this to work is two PCs observing the same game with 0s delay and 15s delay, while still retaining spectator functionalities such as medigun tracking and other UI elements, with a replay interface ingesting the 15s feed.

Just need to know what play the primary observer missed, at that point you have 15s to catch it on observer machine 2 for a replay, whether that be full screen or PiP. Ideally this is manned by a dedicated observer, but you could multitask I suppose.
