when it comes to using built-in xonotic tools for recording in-game stuff you may want to read those articles:

oh, you were asking about it generally? Not specifically for xonotic? If so, nevermind me...

Thx Big Grin they were very helpful!


Demos - kllleE - 11-30-2011

Hi guys again, I just wonder how I do demos. I also wondering if someone want to share some cool demos with me so I can capture it and train a bit on editing Big Grin, cyu on the public servers Big Grin


RE: Demos - Fisume - 11-30-2011

Oi,
by typing "record" in the console you start recording your demo (to finish recording, type in: "stop"). You can also go to the Demo menu and check the Autorecord feature. This way Xonotic will automatically record a demo for every game you play.

You might find some intresting demos in the Xonotic Duel Tournament Thread.


RE: Demos - kllleE - 12-04-2011

Next release? - shnbwmn - 02-03-2012

Any idea on when the next official release will be out? Or maybe just a estimate?

Sorry for sounding rude, I'm just curious Rolleyes


RE: Next release? - Cortez666 - 02-03-2012

RE: Next release? - CuBe0wL - 02-03-2012

Good to know, thanks! Smile


RE: Ask your questions about Xonotic here - Loafers - 02-08-2012

1) Why does Xonotic have superior graphics than Nexuiz even though they both use Darkplaces?

2) Why doesn't Xonotic have a Link Gun alt fire style weapon?

3) Could we have shock rifle alt ball included in Xonotic Sad?


RE: Ask your questions about Xonotic here - Mr. Bougo - 02-09-2012

1) It has more high-res textures, higher definition models, and both of these are of better quality in general.

2) No idea what a link gun is, I'll let others answer that.

3) Same thing. Feel free to post in the suggestions forum, but be aware that there is an ongoing discussion on weapons already and it's kind of difficult to make plans in parallel for the weapon system. One thing at a time Smile


RE: Ask your questions about Xonotic here - Halogene - 02-09-2012

As to 2): there is a weapon that will provide a link gun alt fire style fire mode, it will be called the arc gun and will be available from release of 0.6 (that will happen this month very likely).

As to 3): well, this isn't unreal tournament, so we don't have all the cool stuff that UT has. We also don't have all the cool stuff that quake has. But neither Quake nor UT have all the cool stuff we have Tongue

The arc gun (or whatever it will be called) is NOT going to be in 0.6, it will be for a later release (read: nobody had time to work on it, but it is still in the plans).

What exactly do you mean?

If you mean shock combos, you can do them with electro, but it works somewhat different, so you may want to experiment on your own.

If you mean it as standalone weapon, actually electro primary has many properties of this mode (projectile, blast radius, travels straight, moderate ROF)

Oh, I thought Samual wanted to finish that for 0.6 and that was one of the items that delayed the release? Well, I might have missed something, plans might have changed.


RE: Ask your questions about Xonotic here - kojn^ - 02-09-2012

Also I should note too people here not aware, that the linkgun in UT2003/UT2004 does just that, it allows you too link up with team-mate's who also are using the link gun. So your team-mate is using the linkgun beam, you fire your beam at him and it then increases his power output (can't remember by how much), and you could have more then one person, I think 3 or 4 gave the max power output. Was something like upto a max or 2.5 or 3x damage with 2/3 linkers. And yes, it is incredibly fun, had a few times in TDM clan games, where linked up with 2 of my clan-mates + damage amplifier = WIN (instant death virtually!) Big Grin. Also when you link up in those games, the beam get's thicker that the main player is firing, and I also think when guys are linked up the beam colour changes also depending upon how many are linked up.

So if anyone is not aware, that's what the linkgun also allowed, so it had primary, secondary firemodes and then the linking up also, so that basically gave it 3 possible modes and 2 firing modes Smile


RE: Ask your questions about Xonotic here - Halogene - 02-09-2012

Oh, yes, UT2004 link gun linking was indeed interesting.

I'm not very good with names, which gun is the electro? But yeah I meant shock combos.

And thanks for replying to the other question guys Big Grin


...so how is it? - noobermin - 02-11-2012

Hi, my mouse is broken and I've been off nexuiz/xonotic for the past few weeks, are things picking up?


RE: ...so how is it? - s1lence - 02-11-2012

still too few players Sad

hopefully more now that some major servers are starting to push away from nexuiz and all.


RE: ...so how is it? - Loafers - 02-11-2012

Depends where you live. US servers are usually empty, but if you idle and play against bots while waiting, people tend to join quickly once they see at least 2 people playing.

Euro servers always seem to have someone on, but I don't like playing on there b/c I don't like getting my ass kicked by germans Sad


RE: ...so how is it? - hutty - 02-11-2012

Lag is to high for me on Europe servers... its even too high on some US servers too. (im in Wisconsin)

as for players ... it really depends on the day... tonight for example was dead... but sometimes there are people...

and what loafers said about idleing is correct


RE: ...so how is it? - Apr0ph1z - 02-11-2012

Atm its quite easy to get some duel/dm matches gooing.(EU)I really enjoy playing xonotic atm.


RE: ...so how is it? - Maddin - 02-11-2012

That´s right. On the EU servers are mostly some guys, it´s getting slighty more.

What´s wrong with Germans?Dodgy


RE: ...so how is it? - Halogene - 02-11-2012

Germans kick ass, it seems, so I'm not sure there's something wrong with them...
