#157 My Story With Dashner: A Thread in TF2 General Discussion
FuxxMouldFuxxPerhaps the apparent insensibility is why this is getting downfragged but tbh this is likely the truth. People turn blind eyes to shit all the time to "avoid drama", sometimes even going as far as covering up for them. There are different degrees of severity, but it's unquestionable that all of these are bad moves. Inaction is not a virtue, quite the contrary. People are getting abused, it's time to hold your peers to higher standards. If you don't then you're a fucking coward.
the thing is it's harder than that because these situations can be so different.

you can make the argument either way but frankly if you're told something in confidence then if it comes out then that's a serious breach of trust and what you're doing may later save a victim, or it may not - but you're causing direct harm to the current victim, who may be dealing with it in their own way. Outing them as a victim can be really highly damaging because when this kind of thing happens your sense of self can be really knocked, and having everyone know can be further trauma. It's not the same for everyone but taking the reigns from the victim is highly disrespectful in my opinion.

then on the flip side you have that if it's a rumour of who the aggressor was, but you don't have it from the horses mouth, that's just hearsay and the rumours can often be completely different to whats happened, especially in a case where someone may have more influence and may be spreading a completely different version. in real life I knew someone who was spiked and assaulted and a popular person spread that some guy had been seen in the room, and it was a long time before anyone discovered the reality was that it was one of the popular persons friends all along and some innocent person took the flak for years.

inaction might not be a virtue, but is it a virtue to bring something to attention and cause new kinds of damages and potentially not even help in any way? The problem is these situations are really complex and there is no one flowchart or set of rules that you can follow in order to act in the right way.

what we can all do with 100% certainty is be as supportive as we can and make sure our minds are open when someone actually does come out with this kind of thing. the rumour mill has something going on, as tob wrote about, and it's heartbreaking and gross that it's being/been brushed away due to a lack of support.

People are being abused, it's becoming an issue that warrants higher scrutiny. It's time the community takes a hard look at itself and realizes how shameful this situation is. You have pedophiles and rapists in the higher echelons of the community and if that doesn't scream problematic then maybe you need to re-evaluate your priorities. The solution is exposure, even if the victim would disagree with that. The solution is ostracization. The people doing these things are respected members who others deposit trust into. If these people were robbed from their respect then this problem would be mitigated. It is your view that is flawed, because in your efforts to respect one victim or avoid drama, another person gets victimized. You need the drama, you need the cleanse. Furthermore, Tagg himself admitted that he feels somewhat responsible because he knew what kind of a person Dashner was and instead of taking the moral stand he took the bystander effect. Everyone in that position ought to feel shame for their inaction. It was not they who committed the crime, but they failed to uphold a moral duty. That is telling and I'm sure this will ruffle the feathers of a lot of people, but some uncomfortable truths have to be told. This systematic protectionism is responsible, at least indirectly, for abuse.

it's incredibly easy to take this standpoint when it's not you or your friends who'll be affected by information coming out

it takes a lot of trust to tell anyone about this sort of thing. breaking promises you make to someone about something so personal and going public is a great way to make sure no one ever speaks up

yes you have a moral duty to make sure more people don't get hurt but you also have a moral duty to not hurt your friend already in a fragile state. it's up to the victim to speak up

#50 Offclassing social stigma in TF2 General Discussion
OlghaBut thing is, se7en is worldwide known as one of the best team of the world + a very fair-play team to play against, so you know they won't try to troll you in scrims, result is, if they offclass, you know that's a strat.

we only ran heavy to snake mid when rolling teams 4-0 in scrims so they'd think it was just me bm'ing

#19 Offclassing social stigma in TF2 General Discussion

lowpander is a perfect example of offclassing for the sake of it rather than actually 'pushing the boundaries' of the meta

there might've been decent ideas in some of the random shit they did but they didn't recognise what actually had merit and there was little to no thought behind the class compositions

you shouldnt beat yourself up for getting bad logs as roamer, especially when your teams losing
logs arent the measure of someones performance anyway

i think the 2 group system is better imo. it's a pain in the arse playing so many different teams, you get awkward gaps between each map so you cool down but it's never enough time to actually do things
the maps played are also more interesting because you won't just meet down the middle on the comfortable map

when are we gonna find out the invite groups?

#4 Source Demo Render - fast way to record frag clips in Videos
messiahdidnt hl2mukkel make something like this?

I could be wrong but I don't think his tool uses the GPU like SDR does which makes it faster at frameblending (I'm just parroting information I don't fully understand).

minicircleUnfortunately, I'm still experiencing an issue where audio won't record properly.

Audio doesn't work with it, you'll need to record again with sdr_audio_only 1 & sdr_audio_disable_video 0

#1 Source Demo Render - fast way to record frag clips in Videos

I don't think there's a thread on this already but I may be wrong.
A tool by crashfort that lets you record straight to uncompressed avi incredibly fast (I was getting like 3x real time speed at 1080p 60fps). Patched for TF2 by Larry.

  • Download the .7z file
  • Unzip wherever you want and launch LauncherUI.exe.
  • Enter in your tf & hl2.exe directories respectively (hl2.exe is in the folder above tf).
  • The launch options I use: -insecure -w 1920 -h 1080 -sw -noborder -dxlevel 98 -novid
  • Click Launch and once in-game mess with these commands however you want:

sdr_outputdir - file path of the video, by default it chooses the SDR folder
sdr_video_fps - final fps of the video, by default it's 60
sdr_video_sample_mult - controls the motion blur of the video, greatly increases record time. Set to 1 if you don't want motion blur. Default is 32.
sdr_video_sample_exposure - another setting for the motion blur if you have it enabled. See here

To record just use the command startmovie VideoName.avi and use endmovie to stop. Sony Vegas apparently doesn't like the avi's produced by this so you'll have to use .mp4 instead.

Finally, this tool doesn't come with any configs to make the game look nice, so I just copied over my custom folder from lawena into tf and it worked. (Here's mine if you're lazy)

Edit: something I forgot to mention is that the audio is bugged and doesn't record with the video, you'll need to record again from the same tick with the commands sdr_audio_only 1 & sdr_audio_disable_video 0. It's a pain but it records almost instantly

adyskyHey gang, as last year, i will be flying in to London Luton and wanted to check if anyone is driving from down south that could pick me (and possibly a +1) up. Can pay with gas grass or ass

Edit: Also helpful links to train tickets from Luton to NEC are greatly appriciated :)

Train

Megabus (Luton to London) (London to Birmingham)

National express 1 2 (direct link doesnt work)

National express seems the best

for people who havent been to the NEC, its in the middle of nowhere so the foods either overpriced, shit or both
if you want food and have some time to spare you can get a 10 minute return train to birmingham new street for £4 which takes you to the city centre
