#3 Gibs don't show up in STV demos in Q/A Help

From what I've seen, it looks like it has to do with old demos. It doesn't occur in newer demos as far as I know, or at least, I haven't experienced in newer demos. When I was working on a frag vid all the clips from S10/S11 worked fine and the ones around S9 and older had the issue. I also ran into this on older POV demos so I figure it's probably more related to the demos being older rather than being STV or POV.

I haven't tried this yet, but it's possible an update broke it and using an older beta version to play the demo might fix it.

#82 Announcing the GGL Advanced Playoffs in TF2 General Discussion

I wanted to provide an update on the situation as I understand it.

After discussing with the team leaders and arcadia, the current status is that it seems that the team leaders are satisfied to wait for and accept the results of the Anti-Cheat team's decision, which we have been told will be made soon. As a result, the GGL Playoff will most likely not be necessary at this point.

To emphasize though, while I do not believe running the GGL Playoff will be needed based on the current outlook, if for whatever reason some major concern occurs and it is needed, I am still willing to run the tournament.

The goals of this project were:

1. Encourage communication and a decision from RGL on the elijah situation.

This has been achieved to what appears to be a satisfactory result, as the team leaders, from what I've heard as of now, are willing to listen to the AC team's decision and play the RGL playoffs. Initially, the timeline of the AC investigation was a concern, but now that we have been told a probable deadline for a decision, this no longer seems to be an issue.

2. Encourage RGL to reconsider their cheating policies.

I do not know what RGL's current plans are, but it does seem like there will at least be some discussion about the topic. I am hopeful that this has raised sufficient awareness for the issue that it will not be a problem again in the future.

3. Provide a back-up option for a fair tournament if a decision was not reached in time.

To re-iterate, I believe this GGL tournament will no longer be needed, most likely. However, when this was initially planned and announced, there was very little communication from RGL regarding the situation, and while I can't make a judgement myself as I don't know enough about cheats, the team leaders were convinced that playing playoffs against someone who they believed was cheating was not worth their time. Therefore, the point of this project was to provide a backup plan if RGL did not act quick enough.

To provide some context from personal experience: In Season 4 of RGL Div. 2 there was a player who cheated and was disqualified very, very late in the season (just before finals). Even though I had heard he was being investigated since early in playoffs (maybe even before?) a verdict wasn't reached until the integrity of the playoffs was already ruined since there wasn't enough time to rewind the bracket. Keep in mind, this actually mostly benefited my team (we got 2nd place in spite of going 1-3 in playoffs) and I was still angry about the situation. The fifth seed got completely screwed out of the playoffs and the fourth seed was eliminated in spite of only having one real loss. On top of this, the admin at the time's response to the criticism was rude and unsympathetic to complaints about the issue. I have additional thoughts on the topic of cheating policies that I want to discuss later, but my main point I'm getting at now is that it only takes one person acting in bad faith to ruin hundreds of hours of hard work for a lot of people, so I felt that trying to take action some way was important to prevent the same situation from occurring again. Historically, once playoffs have started, expelling a team for cheating in the middle of it leads to very scuffed outcomes.

I want to thank the team leaders, players, arcadia, Scream, and the donors (who will be refunded assuming the GGL tournament does not occur) for being part of these discussions. I apologize that I could have maybe handled some aspects better, but overall, I'm glad that things seem to have worked out positively for the teams involved.

#1 Announcing the GGL Advanced Playoffs in TF2 General Discussion

Announcing the GGL Advanced Playoffs

With all the attention the elijah situation has gotten, I expect RGL to expel chatCCP soon, so hopefully this alternative plan will not be necessary and the normal RGL playoffs will proceed as normal.

However, if RGL refuses to act on this in a timely manner before playoff matches begin, I am hosting the GGL People's Championship Playoffs, which will feature the 2nd through 5th seeds in a double elimination bracket (identical structure to the normal RGL playoffs format).

In other words, the participants would be, in some order:
PEGMODE
The Goblin Zone
chell team
fgp

We will use the same config and map list. All standards of the normal RGL rulebook will be enforced. There is one additional rule. Anyone who has received a cheating ban during the RGL-era (post-ESEA) will not be allowed to participate in any match. We (the GGL) hope in the future, that RGL will implement this standard as well, at the very least, for any future bans as it has been proven by this situation that RGL does not have the resources to effectively police repeat offenders in a timely manner. This is not an insult to RGL, but simply the reality that there isn't enough staff on the anti-cheat team to respond to every report quickly enough.

To participate, the participants must withdraw from RGL Season 12 playoffs to participate in this tournament instead to determine the true people's champ of the season. If they wish, they may also play the RGL Season 12 playoff matches as normal but must forfeit all playoff games to chatCCP.

The teams agree that if chatCCP is expelled after the GGL playoff starts, that the match results played in the GGL will be respected as the official RGL match results if RGL allows. In other words, if chatCCP is expelled after the first round of the GGL playoffs has been completed, the teams agree to report the GGL first round results as the RGL first round results (if RGL allows) and the remaining GGL matches will be cancelled unless the teams agree to continue playing the GGL tournament instead.

The GGL tournament will have a prize pool starting at $200 for the winner (this prize is funded out of pocket by the tournament organizer). Any further donations or funding will be split equally amongst the four participating teams. If this tournament happens, Fireside Casts has agreed to cast the finals, as well as other matches potentially.

The tournament will be ran through Discord and Challonge (for the bracket). Pick/bans will be done in the official Discord channel and will follow the same structure as RGL pick/bans for this season of Advanced.

The Discord will be public and have public channels for announcements of match times so people can follow the tournament.

So far, all teams (2nd through 5th) have tentatively accepted the offer or expressed interest in participating in the alternative tournament if chatCCP is not expelled from RGL.

If one team decides not to participate, but the rest of the teams agree to do so, the GGL playoff will proceed with three teams as a double elimination tournament.

If only two teams agree to participate, then instead, the People's Championship Bowl will be played instead, a single BO3 series to determine the true people's champion for a prize of $100 + donations split amongst the two teams.

An announcement will be made on Sunday that the tournament is cancelled (since RGL playoffs can proceed as normal) if chatCCP is expelled by then. If Sunday comes and chatCCP is not expelled, this tournament will proceed until chatCCP is expelled.

The playoff schedule will either be (identical to the current intended RGL schedule):

MONDAY, JULY 17th
- Upper 1 and Upper 2
TUESDAY, JULY 18th
- Lower 1 and Upper Bracket Finals
WEDNESDAY, JULY 19th
- Lower Bracket Finals
THURSDAY, JULY 20th
- Grand Finals

Or:

TUESDAY, JULY 18th (Reschedulable to the 19th)
- Upper 1 and Upper 2 (Rescheduable up to the 24th)
THURSDAY, JULY 20th
- Lower 1 and Upper Bracket Finals
TUESDAY, JULY 25th (Reschedulable up to the 26th)
- Lower Bracket Finals
THURSDAY, JULY 27th (Reschedulable up to August 2nd)
- Grand Finals

These dates can be played earlier if the teams agree.

So far, I have received firm or tentative agreements from each team I have contacted, please contact me on Discord or reply to this post if you have an update on participation, or if you have concerns/questions.

Contact me on Discord if you wish to donate to the prize pool. If the tournament is cancelled for any reason, you will receive a full refund. You may also send donations to the following PayPal: jonathanallenray1@gmail.com.

Discord contact: _giblert

Current community contribution pledged (not counting RGL contribution): $751
Pledges (if this tournament happens)
Anonymous: $300
rkcbb: $101
Sol: $100

playmo: $25
Jaguar: $25

7/14 Update: https://www.teamfortress.tv/63358/announcing-the-ggl-advanced-playoffs/?page=3#82
7/16 Update: This tournament will fortunately no longer be needed, as chatCCP has been expelled. Thank you all for your support and good luck to the Advanced playoffs teams. Donors have all been refunded.

#1 Gibs don't show up in STV demos in Q/A Help

Trying to record a clip with gibs from an older STV demo (about 3 years old). Ragdolls work but no gibs (players just disappear). I have gibs on and confirmed they work both in game and in recent demos. Is this a known issue and is there a fix?

I have the following settings:

cl_phys_props_enable 1
cl_phys_props_max 128
props_break_max_pieces -1
r_propsmaxdist 1000
violence_agibs 1
violence_hgibs 1
tf_playergib 1

edit: also checked with someone else, they had the same problem

^example demo that didn't work for either of us. I also assume it's a known problem since some of Beater's videos have the same issue: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZRANPUODpcw
