I will do this taunt demonstration. Pictogram wait.png This demonstration has been reserved: Monkey Squirts (talk) 12:06, 23 July 2017 (PDT)

I finished the demonstration. I edited the video, added music, and applied the thumbnail to the video. If any of the staff just wants me to upload the raw footage instead or wants me to make any changes, then let me know. Then I'll take this version down and change it or I'll upload the raw footage back up here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XiUs6xtrbg4&feature=youtu.be Monkey Squirts (talk) 22:31, 23 July 2017 (PDT)

The video is fine, but the Engineer isn't saying any of the voice lines for some reason...? — Wind 09:24, 2 August 2017 (PDT)

I believe I accidentally made the music a little too loud. Should I edit it to make the engineer a little louder? (Sorry for late response) Monkey Squirts (talk) 00:42, 8 August 2017 (PDT)

As long the music isn't louder than the in-game volume. Take this demonstration video for example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8HJnW0GLDVE User Karmacharger Charger 2.png Karmacharger 10:02 AM 8/18/2017 (PDT)
What matters is that neither of them clip, and that the relative volumes match the other videos. — Wind 14:39, 29 October 2017 (PDT)

Dueling Banjo Dueling Banjo

I'm pretty sure we need to add the Banjo, I haven't seen talk about it. I DID make a demonstration for it, but MrJohnson undid it saying it wasn't approved by Wind. (I apologize for that) Now that I clarified that, Can I have permission to publish the Banjo demo? Moodic (talk) 04:39, 5 August 2018 (UTC)

Official Channel already did the demo, no need to do it. User Hinaomi Hinaomi-sig.png Rikka Takanashi (talk) • (contributions) 05:47, 5 August 2018 (UTC)

Wouldn't it be better to properly do it with Wiki demostration tho? or was this already done when MYM came around?

I have this item, so I might end up making this demo a bit later. Graysocks (talk) 08:08, 5 May 2018 (UTC)

The last talk about this was over a month ago, so I made the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S3ijWhyqZGU& As far as I understand, I need to wait for approval on this. VasyaTheWizard (talk) 15:53, 6 June 2018 (UTC)

The demonstration contents are fine, but the video is too low-bitrate. You can tell, for example, when the camera is moving: here's a screenshot. You can see that the static parts of the frame (the non-transparent parts of the HUD) remain clear, but the rest of the video is blocky. Please render the video at a higher bitrate. For 720p, you probably want between 2 MB/s (8,000 kbps) and 8 MB/s (64,000 kbps). Right now it's ~250 kbps. — Wind 01:56, 6 August 2018 (UTC)

Whoever does this one, it would be really cool if you could get all nine classes to do the Mouse1 dance at the same time, in sync. Dogman15 (talk) 01:09, 14 July 2016 (PDT)

It's gonna takes forever just to get 9 players to do that, no for this. Since Valve officially made a video for this taunt, i don't think it's necessary for us to do so. User Karmacharger Charger 2.png Karmacharger 6:57 PM 8/26/2016 (PDT)

I did a sort of shitty demonstration on my own YouTube channel, but there's several things that don't meet the demonstration requirements. If Windpower sees this at any time, i'd be more than happy to remake it. Naleksuh (talk) 08:04, 28 October 2018 (UTC)

First of all, Windpower is kinda busy person. So don't expect him to be here, he'll be here when he's free. Second of all, I removed the link to the video as I think it's pretty much self-advertising. If you really want to do the demonstration for this, just do it in the way that the project stated without have to wait for Wind to look at your video on your channel. User Hinaomi Hinaomi-sig.png Rikka Takanashi (talk) • (contributions) 11:08, 28 October 2018 (UTC)
I saw the video, it looks fine content-wise, but of course it would need the usual fluff that other demonstration videos have (intro screen, background music) and perhaps better framerate. — Wind 21:35, 28 October 2018 (UTC)
Cool cool. At the time there was a bug preventing me from opening the taunt window but I can fix that. I also needed to use the mouse1 which I failed to do. I don't see a problem with the framerate though, you liked my gas passer demonstration which was recorded at the exact same rate. I will have another vid soon.

You've got black bars all around your video :( If you've still got the raw footage you might be able to edit it to get rid of those bars without losing too much quality.

Pictogram comment.png Demonstration of how the sound effect works

Pardon me if I'm putting in the wrong place, but I noticed that Infernal Orchestrina includes the demonstration. I know that was for a pyroland item, but what if the Boston Boom-Bringer had a demonstration video where it shows the sound effect that is played when taunting? Just like the Orchestrina had (albeit the Pyroland thing). There is several sound effects, though, so all of them has to be played. User Gabrielwoj Signature 1.pngUser Gabrielwoj Signature 2.png - User Gabrielwoj Signature 3.png 21:32, 26 March 2015 (PDT)

Infernal Orchestrina was demonstrated because it turns pyroland vision on by itself, not because of the sound effect it adds. This item has no such dramatic change, so no need to demonstrate — Wind 15:08, 29 March 2015 (PDT)

Content looks fine, though I think you should shrink the picture-in-picture screens to cover less than 1/4th of the screen. Currently it's pretty hard to see what's going on, both in the spy clip and the pyro-reflection clip. — Wind 23:38, 16 September 2018 (UTC)

Flamethrowers

Note: I decided to put the Flamethrowers aside from the "Need to be redone" chapter because most of them sharing the same changes from the Jungle Inferno Update - Thedop (talk) 10:38, 03 May 2018

Pictogram comment.png Flamethrowers no longer apply maximum-duration afterburn on contact. Afterburn duration is now based on how long the target is in contact with direct flames.

Pictogram comment.png Flame damage per second now ramps up based on density of flame encountered, up to 200%.

Pictogram comment.png New particle effects.

Pictogram comment.png Airblast: Total push force slightly increased.

Pictogram comment.png Airblast: Airblast factors in the upward angle of the airblast, rather than having a fixed upward force.

Questions and Proposals

Note: This section is for questions and proposals that aren't specific to a single weapon. If you think a demo ought to be remade, then make an entry for it in the Need to be Redone section above and it will be dealt with.

So it appears that the weapon switch speed for every class has increased from 0.67 to 0.5 seconds. Are we going to have to redo all the demonstrations where weapon switching is present? User Obilisk Demo1.png Obilisk 23:00, 25 December 2015 (PST)

No, that's probably too much. — Wind 14:29, 27 December 2015 (PST)

Is there any particular reason we don't allow Collector's quality items to be used in demonstrations? Hail Fellow Well Met (talk) 23:38, 11 January 2016 (PST)

My assumption would be that Collector's quality is rather rare, and as such unrecognizable for most players, since Unique and Vintage have been around for ages all players by now should be able to recognize those. Although as far as I know we haven't talked about including Collector's quality in the suitable list for the Loadout screen, maybe now, being a year and a bit after the Collector's quality has been added, Wind may allow it. Let's see what he says. In my opinion the colour hurts my eyes haha. User Obilisk Demo1.png Obilisk 05:09, 12 January 2016 (PST)
It's definitely not the quality most people watching the video would have the item in. And if they do, then they would already know there's no difference between Collector and non-Collector. The reverse is not as likely.
I also don't think disallowing Collector's quality items prevents people from contributing to these videos. Surely if you manage to get a Collector's item you can also manage to get a non-Collector version of it.
More generally, the allowed qualities the "common" ones such that they are recognizable by most people and don't put up a barrier for contribution. It also prevents the temptation people may have to show off their rare item when they have a non-rare version of it. And having a small restricted set keeps videos consistent. — Wind 18:11, 18 January 2016 (PST)

I'm thinking of doing one of the weapons here, but my graphics card is confused as to whether or not it can record video. Could I record the demos and upload the demos for recording? weatherman115 08:11, 2 February 2016 (PST)

That's not the hard part of the work (the demo rendering/cutting/adding backpack view/music mixing/transitions/muxing/uploading to youtube/etc process is significant) and the review process would be pretty awkward if the responsibility is shared between two people, so I don't think that kind of system would work very well. — Wind 14:46, 6 February 2016 (PST)
I knew there was going to be a problem. I'll see if I can get my card to record video, although I'm afraid that it will break the card. But frankly, it's worked before, so it shouldn't be a problem.
...I would put my graphic card name here, but I'm away from my computer and I can't check from anywhere other than there. I do remember that it's an AMD. weatherman115 07:36, 8 February 2016 (PST)
Found it. It's a Radeon HD 5900 Series. weatherman115 15:09, 8 February 2016 (PST)
Can you find the precise number? 5900 is a wide series. I'm pretty sure they're all good enough to use Source Recorder at 7250p or higher though so I don't think you should have problem rendering as long as you have the correct drivers. — Wind 15:36, 27 February 2016 (PST)
I was actually thinking of using OBS, but that sounds good. Where can I download it?
Also, can I have a non-7zip file of the demonstration map? I don't want to download any more software, and I'm pretty sure Windows 10 can't unzip .7z files. weatherman115 06:28, 2 March 2016 (PST)
Here's the extracted map file: http://weaponref.wiki.tf/tr_target_weaponref_hdr.bspWind 18:08, 13 March 2016 (PDT)
Been way too long since I last checked my account, completely forgot about this. I'm on mobile right now, plus I've got life stuff to do, so I'll get to it as soon as I can. Thanks! weatherman115 13:17, 17 March 2016 (PDT)
For the demonstration config, how do I reset my settings after recording? I'm a very competitive player, so being able to restore my settings would be great. weatherman115 14:45, 17 March 2016 (PDT)
The Source engine configuration file language is very limited. It doesn't have any kind of state-keeping, so there is no way for a config file to be able to undo itself. The only way to have an easy "undo" is rather to have a config file that sets the options you want. Then you can alternate between the two config files in order to switch between one or the other. There's no way for the demonstration-specific config file to figure out what your previous configuration was, so it can't provide a way to undo itself either. Sorry :( — Wind 18:39, 20 March 2016 (PDT)

New Map and Musics For Demonstration

Glad you like the tr_karma map, it has everything, a swimming pool, a pit hole, trees, and birds. I assume you've played the map to see how it looks like. For new musics, i mixed the projector music with the official TF2 soundtrack, two examples: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sYIblqJNSDM and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xdC7L2o_1Y0 I think we definitely should use them too, the current ones are getting old and boring. If you like, i'll upload them here. Also for the config and bots spawning, do you still want the starting bots to be Pyro, Soldier, Medic, and Spy? in my videos, the bots are Demoman, Heavy, Sniper, and Scout. if you want the same setup for the bots, i'll change them, then upload the config file here. Oh yeah last thing, a halloween themed version for the tr_karma will be released soon, since Scream Fortress will be here soon, if there's any new weapons released, can i use that halloween tr_karma to demonstrate? User Karmacharger Charger 2.png Karmacharger 12:11 AM 10/5/2016 (PDT)

https://www.dropbox.com/s/lwfowqne4qsld0x/Tr_karma%20and%20night%20%28with%20config%29.rar?dl=0 tr_karma and tr_karma_night, also included config for bots, new bots setup and the old one. User Karmacharger Charger 2.png Karmacharger 4:02 PM 10/8/2016 (PDT)
Thanks for the maps. I'm getting some skybox issues with the night version.
Yes, the bots should be the same and spaced the same way such that videos using either maps stay comparable in terms of distance falloff and time-to-kill-each-bot.
For halloween: Yes, as long as it also has a halloween background music as well to complement it. I think this would mark a nice point to transition to the regular tr_karma for demos after that point too (meaning that we keep doing tr_target_weaponref_hdr demos until halloween, then make tr_karma_halloween demos, then make tr_karma demos). — Wind 23:54, 9 October 2016 (PDT)

New Demonstrations (jungle inferno)

These is my first demonstrations, so I can imagine 1000 errors...

Thermal Thruster
Gas Passer
Your Eternal Reward
Cow Mangler 5000
The Second Banana
The Vita-saw
The B.A.S.E jumper
Pretty Boy's Pocket Pistol (this is a super-update, because embarassingly, it was never redone since the LAST update)
I am currently remaking:

  • Atomizer
  • Rescue Ranger
  • Flamethrowers

Please let me know if there are any problems. Naleksuh (talk) 14:16, 21 October 2017 (PDT)

Thanks wind, i'll get right on it (in order ;). Can I add you on steam or something where you're more active so I can reach you more often? Naleksuh (talk) 14:40, 29 October 2017 (PDT)

Review for https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D62WLzm4tS4:
  • Video quality is much better. Not perfect though. Some tips to improve further if you want to explore:
  • Use tr_karma instead of tr_target_weaponref, it has slightly better lighting.
  • Try starting the game with -dxlevel 98 as launch option (in Steam, right-click on TF2 in the library, "Properties", "Set launch options")
  • Use some console commands to improve graphics quality further, for example using this or this one. This will probably make the game too slow to play normally, but you can run it before rendering a demo so that it only applies during demo rendering.
  • See if you can also do 60fps. Yes, you will need to double the bitrate to keep the same video quality at 60fps.
  • It's OK for the demo files to have bots randomly die at the beginning, but it's not OK to have that shown in the video, nor to have their ragdolls randomly littered across the floor, nor to hear the ragdoll sounds. If your demo file has this "everybody dies" problem, you can either decide to wait it out (and cut the waiting part in your video editor later), or you can bind bot_teleport to make the bots go away at first, then start recording the demo, then bot_teleport them back after the recording has started. That way the ragdolls will be somewhere else off-screen.
  • 1:18 - unnecessary jump
  • 1:28: missing fade transition, & need more padding before/after transition (see other demonstration videos to get an idea on the timing)

Rest is good~ This is much closer to perfect. — Wind 20:57, 31 October 2017 (PDT)

Also, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zr09nYzHemA shows that the gas passer does resupply at the resupply locker, what's up with that? — Wind 21:03, 31 October 2017 (PDT)
Wind, are you sure -dxlevel 98 is a good idea? It completely ruined the quality. Naleksuh (talk) 22:24, 8 November 2017 (PST)
Yeah, that looks pretty bad. Go lower until you find a value that looks better. I think the valid directX 9.x ones are -dxlevel 98, 95, 91, and 90. — Wind 22:31, 9 November 2017 (PST)
98 is what I used in that video though. To me it would make sense to go higher, but I trust you more than myself. i'll try it on 90 and upload that to youtube. Naleksuh (talk) 22:52, 9 November 2017 (PST)
OK, this is what I now have. unless there is something you see, I myself can't find any problems so if you don't have any objections I may proceed to add music and the other clips. Naleksuh (talk) 12:42, 10 November 2017 (PST)
Video quality is quite nice. Get rid of the BLU pyro ragdoll at the beginning (unfortunately that will probably require a new recording, since you started moving too early on this one to be able to just cut off the beginning out), add the backpack view, add some BGM, and it'll all be good~
I'll be away for all of next week (work trip), won't be able to review other demos for a while. Feel free to start working on the other demos in the meantime, as this level of quality is good to go for other demos — Wind 18:55, 11 November 2017 (PST)
I attempted to cut him out, but obviously I failed at that.
I will attempt to finish gas passer and maybe 1 or 2 or other but I'll stop at that, don't want a repeat of last time. Naleksuh (talk) 19:36, 11 November 2017 (PST)
Here is what I made for the gas passer.
I am now going to be making the second banana, and base jumper! Naleksuh (talk) 22:46, 11 November 2017 (PST)
The clip 1:02 starts a bit too quickly. The camera is already moving while the crossfade isn't complete yet... The Spy tauntkill clip transition is a bit buggy (there's a frame skip in there, and the background noise clips out). That being said, the Spy tauntkill should be in the first clip preferably. You can do the tauntkill before throwing it on the medic to avoid the long resupply delay, which avoids the need for having a separate tauntkill clip. I think it'd be nice to do it anyway if only so that there's no inconsistency in the kill effect (tauntkill clip has the halloween soul-sucking thing going on, but the rest of the clip doesn't).
Video quality is good, feel free to proceed with the others. Please use the {{Reservation}} tag :) — Wind 17:34, 26 November 2017 (PST)

Question about innacurate demonstration videos.

When the a demo video isn't accurate due to patch changes and such, should it still be displayed on the Item page? or should it be commented out until it is updated? Graysocks (talk) 23:06, 26 October 2017 (PDT)

It should be updated instantly, as I am trying to do above. But windpower is inactive and I can't get em uploaded. Naleksuh (talk) 16:08, 27 October 2017 (PDT)
Ideally it would be updated instantly, but like you said you can't upload them. In addition there are also other ones that are innacurate now, and making the videos will take some more time. So that's why I'm wondering what should be done while the videos are inaccurate. Graysocks (talk) 23:06, 27 October 2017 (PDT)
I'm not really sure. I was considering just replacing the links with my own videos, but I'm not sure how much windpower would like that. Am still waiting on a reply back from him. For now I guess, just leave it how it is. Better to have a partial demonstration than nothing--stats are shown at begin so they can tell if it's old or not. Naleksuh (talk) 10:11, 29 October 2017 (PDT)
Oh hi. I'm here and I try to check this page every weekend or so (sometimes I skip weeks but yeah...). When a video is inaccurate, typically the weapon still retains most of its previous behaviour, and also its appearance (3D model in the game), so the old video still has some value. The {{Weapon Demonstration}} template actually supports an "out of date" mode where it will display a disclaimer for outdated videos (see the last line of {{Weapon Demonstration}}, where it says "scattergun-outdate"). That will display an autotranslated "out-of-date" disclaimer on all pages including this video. — Wind 14:39, 29 October 2017 (PDT)
So I guess I will add that "out-of-date" disclaimed to the out of date videos that I find. Graysocks (talk) 00:50, 7 December 2017 (PST)
Well, I tried that out and it doesn't seem to work. I even looked in the history of the page to make sure I was doing it correctly. I'm not sure what the issue is. The out of date notice doesn't show up with the videos. Graysocks (talk) 05:49, 7 December 2017 (PST)
I checked again a day or so ago, and the out of date notice shows up now. It looks like it takes quite some time to appear. I'll go add it on the other out of date videos I find now. Graysocks (talk) 21:20, 22 December 2017 (PST)

IRC

Is everyone here emotionally attatched to IRC? because I lose all my messages upon restart and if wind wouldn't mind, I wish weapon demos could be discussed on alternative chat sites (Discord, slac, etc).
however, I am still relatively new here so I understand if the answer is "deal with it". Naleksuh (talk) 21:13, 9 November 2017 (PST)
The IRC channel dates back to 2010 or so. People are used to it being there. I would also not want to move it to a proprietary chat service like Slack or Discord.
You can use Riot.im to join channel #freenode_#tfwiki:matrix.org and it will join the #tfwiki Freenode IRC channel through matrix.org, which will keep your messages and will stay connected if you leave.
In the future I plan to set up a proper Matrix version of #tfwiki, which can then automatically bridge users from IRC, Slack, Discord, XMPP, and other protocols together into one virtual channel. I've already started setting it up for #pwiki (the Portal Wiki's IRC channel). — Wind 22:31, 9 November 2017 (PST)
Also, there is a web log of past messages in the channel at https://irc.biringa.com/channel/tfwiki (older logs are available using the top right button on that page). — Wind 22:35, 9 November 2017 (PST)
Yeah, that was kinda what I was expecting for #tfwiki, hence the preemptive "deal with it". however, that stuff cant log pms tho, and my concern is every time I get disconnected I have no idea what you said to me and lost all our record. is there an app for that too xdd The preceding unsigned comment was added by Naleksuh (talk) • (contribs)

Call for YouTube channel management

Oh hi, video demonstrators. I've been lazy on doing reviews and on keeping the YouTube channel up-to-date with the approved demonstrations, and to fix this I'd like to quicken on the first part (quality-checking videos) and recruit people to do the latter part. If you've proven yourself by getting 5 or more videos approved for upload in the past (that means you, Thedop), please reply here to apply. Your responsibilities would be to upload approved videos (not just your own) to the YouTube channel, tagged properly, with the correct thumbnail, and updating the Wiki pages (the weapon page, the dictionary, and the Weapon Demonstration project page's list of demos to do) accordingly. In exchange, I will review your videos on-demand if messaged on IRC, or every weekend otherwise. I'm not pretending this is a fair trade of responsibilities, I just think it's the best thing to do for weapon demonstrations on the wiki as a whole in order to get quality videos out faster given my lack of time. Let me know what you think~ — Wind 01:56, 6 August 2018 (UTC)

Hello Wind, i'm all in to help with the wiki management, but i have some concerns about the upload part because my upload rate is quite "slow" (about 2H for a 6min video for example). I don't mean it is impossible but it would take load of time to uploading most of the current approved videos. I've also some additional questions :
1) What part of the dictionary needs to be updated?
2) All the approved videos must be uploaded at the same time and remain hidden until the last one is uploaded?
3) It is necessary then to upload on Mediafire the approved videos i worked on?
But apart for that, i can provide any help. - Thedop (talk) 19:48, 06 August 2018 (UTC+1)
There's also no rush in uploading past approved videos. Some of them have been pending for weeks before publication, so a few days extra isn't a big deal.
Re: #1: this dictionary: {{Dictionary/demonstrations}}
Additionally, pages which didn't have weapon demonstrations (in all languages) must be edited to add the {{Weapon Demonstration}} template so that they show up on the page.
Re: #2: No, there is no strict schedule. Historically they were released in batches but that's just because that's how I went over their descriptions and tags to make sure they're correct, and YouTube had no "publish this video at this time in the future" functionality before. Now it's possible to upload them hidden, make sure the description and tags etc. are all hidden, and then publish them slowly over time (like 1 a day). But that's not a requirement.
Re: #3: You would upload your own videos to your own channel for review, and once approved you can upload to the wiki channel directly. No MediaFire. — Wind 22:03, 12 August 2018 (UTC)
Understood. - Thedop (talk) 13:27, 13 August 2018 (UTC+1)
Alright. So, do you want to manage the YouTube account? If so, please send me a message on IRC or Steam so that I can give you the password. — Wind 00:35, 20 August 2018 (UTC)

Split screen HUD

  • So I need to change my HUD layout for a demonstration video for 2 screen split-screen. I've downloaded the file that was on the project page called "HUDv2" and extracted it. After that, what do I do with the files? Please help, thanks! Ben10508 (talk) 01:30, 10 September 2018 (UTC)
    • The split-screen HUDs haven't been updated for the recent updates, personally i would recommend to stick with the demonstration.vpk file from weaponref.7z and changing your resolution directly from the game launch option with -width 960 -height 1080 -window to make your game run in a window at 960x1080 resolution. - Thedop (talk) 10:50, 10 September 2018 (UTC+1)

Third Degree Demostration

the Third Degree Demostration doesn't show if the Amputator Taunt links also. Shouldn't it be shown? User MrJohnson Signature.png MrJohnson (talk) 08:34, 13 September 2018 (UTC)

No, on the account that it's a) likely a bug, and b) we generally don't demonstrate interactions with non-stock weapons, unless they're explicitly-coded and important gameplay features (e.g. lighting huntsman arrows on fire) or they're about general properties of non-stock weapons rather than about specific non-stock weapons (e.g. damage bonus against burning players can come from non-flamethrower fire weapons). — Wind 23:38, 16 September 2018 (UTC)

Halloween Souls

Since it's time for Scream Fortress, for every bot I kill, I suck in their soul or whatever it is. Is there a way I could disable this for demonstration videos that I'm currently working on? Ben10508 (talk) 20:34, 20 October 2018 (UTC)

Try disconnecting from the internet and restarting game. If that doesn't work, I guess just wait until Scream fortress ends. Naleksuh (talk) 04:38, 21 October 2018 (UTC)
I've tried that and playing in offline mode. I've also tried tf_forced_holiday 0 but it still doesn't work. Ben10508 (talk) 16:09, 21 October 2018 (UTC)
