Forum Guide: Recording and Uploading Demos

Question

Minidove    583

Seems like the place to post this, despite not being a question. Please relocate to appropriate place or pin next to the other one.

 

At the request of Allanon I'm here to show ya'll how to record and upload demos for use on the EGC forums, whether it be some form of highlights reel or ban appeal. There will be two (hopefully short) parts to this guide. Skip to part 2 if you just want to know how to upload, go from the start if you want to know how to record demos in the first place.

 

PART I: Recording Demos
The process of recording demos is rather easy. Simply open your console by pressing the tilde key (~) and type "record [name of demo]".

This will start recording a demo file of everything going on. If you're reporting a hacker it might be a good idea to use spectator mode and navigate to target the suspected hacker, and follow them for the duration of the demo by pressing 1

 and then 1 again

This function on the EGC servers allows for easy access to player information such as their steam ID if it's ever lost or not recorded in the first place. You can also get the steam ID for everyone on the current server by typing "status" in the console.

Once you are done recording your demo, you can enter "stop" to stop recording and save the file.

This will give you a read out of the recording time and frames recorded

Part II: Uploading Demos
Now comes the final part. You've recorded a demo for whatever reason you needed to, you just need to upload it. To start, navigate to your steamapps folder. By default, this will be located at "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps" however if you have a custom install or have spread your game installs over multiple drives, you will need to navigate to the steamapps folder you have installed tf2 on. Proceed through to the "tf" folder located at "...\steamapps\common\Team Fortress 2\tf" and you will find several folders and files, along with your demo

Edit: You can now upload demos directly to your post, simply drag the file into the section below the text box

And it will upload the demo.

Simply upload this to a file sharing site, such as dropbox, and use a share link (click "share", then "copy link")

to post it onto the forums. Have fun and good luck!
