Here's where we'll post any demos from the .99f version of Generaitons Arena.  I've already got two demo packs from our release party.  If you couldn't make it, here's a good look at what you missed:

gen_99f_demopack1.zip
gen_99f_demopack2.zip
gen_99f_demopack3.zip

I recorded some, and Kain recorded some, and Makou some as well.  Unzip to your "generations" folder, it will create the demos directory for you if one does not exist.  Then load up Generations Arena, select Demos, and watch the action!

Are 99e demos compatible with the new version?

They SHOULD be, I don't think I changed any server data or event handling, but if not you can just temporarily rename the .99f pk3 and Gen will run as .99e.

Demos from tonight's TDM match:

gen_99f_tdm_demos_042605.zip

Unzip to your generations folder.  Three are from my perspective, one is free-floating, though it's bloody hard to get good camera angles on Deadmeat.

Everyone did a professional job of laying me on the floor, but I'm getting better. ;^)
You know what would be awsome, having Doom vs. Slipgate with enabled techs. That would make great incrediants for some great matches! :^)

As much as some people will probably hate me for this, I currently refuse to put a Doom vs. {insert class here} game in the poll at the moment, with or without techs enabled. That would wind up with everybody trying to get on the Doom team, and anybody not on the Doom team would be frustrated as all getout.

If you really want it that badly, you can callvote dmflags and genflags on both Euro and Central. A lof of people forget about that... Slipgate - Ninja

And if you don't know what a dmflag or genflag is -> Slipgate - RTFM

However, when 1.0 comes around, assuming I'm still running the custom game nights, that week will automatically be Doom vs. Slipgate TDM. That's a grudge match that just has to happen, but not until some physics issues are fixed and balance questions have been answered -- a battle that will be that heated needs to on as level a playing field as possible, and right now, because of messed up jump physics, even Earth can easily outrun Slipgate (unless your name is Tabun).

So stick around, it will happen... eventually. Slipgate - Thumbs up!

That was the opinion of many people a few months ago. There are a few really simple things that should help to balance it out a bit, primarily the weapon animations -- that'll slow down Doom's weapon switching, which right now, is just as fast as Arena's and can really allow someone who knows the class to rip things up with ease.

But, one of the biggest reasons is Slipgate's kind of screwed up physics at the moment. For some reason, jumping as Slipgate causes the player to slow down. That's a big no-no where I come from.

I have no problems playing as Slipgate, it always has been my class of choice. I'm also not too big on jumping, so the slowdown goes unnoticed to me.

All that being said... I think I said this in one of Pho's TDM demos, but whatever... I suck without Slippy rockets. And the Shaft... which I usually use to mop up after a rocket hit or two.

I will say this tho... Doom is a lot more durable than I thought he was. In one of the games against Pho (not on a demo), I hit him with some random rocket splashes, a second or two of shaft hits.. and he was still going strong! Granted, the time limit was hit right then... in which case he said, "I'd have teleported anyway," after I started bragging about my moment of glory that was to come. *sigh*... I can never win.

Here are some demos from some April 29th matches, a bunch of people showed up.

There are 4 parts, personally, I like part 4 the best.

Here is the 4mb zip file.

http://www.ripway.com/members/getfile.asp?...810lw_demos.zip

if it doen't work try to copy the url to the adress bar. Thing's screwy like that sometimes.

Maybe someone can give me some playing tips. ;^)

If anyone wants slipgate jumping lessons, just holler. For some reason it seems very hard for people to figure out, so whether or not you master normal strafejumping with (say) the Arena class, feel free to ask, and I'll demonstrate.

I do concede that Doom's weapon switching is way too fast, but as a Doomer myself I find it ironic that on Wednesday night I almost won Q1DM1 as Slippy. I was beaten by 1FRAG which is unusual for me. One of the most intense games I've had in a long time  Slipgate - Thumbs up!

That would be awsome. I always fall in the void or kill myself because I don't know how to do such things.
