Hello, I have downloaded a trickjump movie and i saw really cool jumps, they jumped very far. How do they do that?? Is there any special technique for it ?? I heard someting about strafe jumping enz. Does any1 know or there is a site were it is explained?? cya & cheerz:cheers: RuSHeR
It's illgeal! I already have your IP address and I am coming after you. Not really, the only trick jumps I know of invovle shurb.
LoL:p Some trickjumps are illegal in clanwars but not all the jumps are illegal (or usefull). ;) I have found a jump map were you can practise it (jump v1.2) And i came to platform 7 :uhoh: :uhm: I dont know how to make a longer jump.?.?.?.? Strafe jumping = press forward(w)+sideward(a)+sprint(shift) @ da same time and then press jump. (I think) (dont know its true or not) cya, RuSHeR
Trick jumping (as what the movie's show) is relatively easy with a practice. If you want to jump Oasis wall, for example (probably the most useful 'trick' jump), you start on the top ledge and jump with sprint. Right before the jump you will want to 'fling' (or flip slightly) your mouse to one direction or the other and push the opposite directional key while in flight. You will hold the directional key and jump right when you hit the bottom platform and it will pop you up and over the wall. I find the bottom platform easier to jump off of in a single jump and over. The wall jump is very easy, but seems to be most ellusive to those who have never done it. If you would like you can PM me or email me or get me on aim (TheSixthApostlle) and we can set up a place and time and I could show you a few trick jumps. Notice: Trick jumps are not really what their names imply. They are just long jumps, sometimes double jumps, that aren't very easy. Maps are full of these jumps and the trick jump movies don't even touch on ALL of them.
Woow:) :cheers: ThX for ur tips, i think they will help very much :D I'm going to try it ;) cya & thx :P, RuSHeR
There is a new map available, that recreates the most known jumps from the stock maps: LNA Trick Jump (the download link is somewhere at the end of the thread).
Additionally to strafe jumping also a good stable framerate at certain values is needed. Due to rounding inside the Quake3 engine (on which ET is based) you will jump further if you cap your framerate at 43, 76, 125 or 333 fps (with com_maxfps). Be aware that your fps must be stable at the set number, to benefit from it.
But how can make framerates jumps longer and wots better low framerates or high??? Does any1 can make a demo of the map (I don't even get the first jump managed ;) LoL... I'm an n00b in jumping:beer: BtW believe, ur tips worked but it is hard to do them right:thumbsup: But if you try it much it will go good ThX again... cya , RuSHeR
Basically framerate affects your jumping because they use integers instead of floating point numbers for calculations (thats alot faster). One drawback of this is, that the fractional part of a result from divisions is cut of (e.g. if you calculate 10/4 the result would be 2 instead of 2.5). Usually this doesnt matter because your framerate spreads over a certain range. But when you cap your framerate, the errors accumulate, making your jump further.
For more detailed info go here.
There you can also see the higher the better (so 76 is better then 43, 125 is better then 76 and so on).
OO! Trick jumps! There's a server called Triple X Trick Jump server... I would give you the IP and exact name if ET hadn't reset my favorites, bindings, and started crashing. If you want to be lame, you could always go into a FF off server, and have a teammate nade you over walls n' the such. And, what's all this crap about it being "illegal". If you can do it without hacking, it's perfectly acceptable. No forum will help you do trick jumps, tho. You gotta get into a trickjump server and practice it urself. Trick jumps I can do: Old city wall, Fuel Depot Wall(s), Seawall battery (near assault ramp construction... that's the hardest), Railgun (onto the axis spawn house), really long jumps at the Wurzburg radar... it's all about timing on the long jumps... if you just sprint and jump at the right time, you can go insanely long distances (like on the hill on the gold rush stage coming down from the tank depot spawn point).
Hey does anyone know a good url where i can get a jumping or double-jump script @, i really need one for gamma jumping and other maps like that, strafe jumping isn't always practical and possible in some of the jumps so i need a script, plz respond with a url if you have one, ty
