That was a great trip down memory lane, well done to everyone involved! :)

GTA Modding / Re: Freeplay

Nice job as always! :)

With regards to DC's suggestion, I have a streamlined solution in mind (as long as it's technically achievable). Freeplay has the ability to recognise which frame is being played at any given moment, so why not let the player tap a hotkey while watching a replay to set their desired starting point, and then whenever a replay is opened, Freeplay would automatically start the replay on the frame number which was set by the hotkey, which could then be disabled by simply tapping the hotkey again?

This seems better than writing USCM data into replays, since that wouldn't work with old replays, and it seems better than detecting large deviations in coordinate data too, since that wouldn't work with things like Monster Dynamics in SA which can instantly teleport you elsewhere. Sometimes it's beneficial to position your angle before the successful attempt begins too (especially when the runup is short), which would also be possible with this method :euro:.

It's always a pleasure when your videos pop up, you have a distinct style that resonates with my soul. Loved the plethora of Sanchez stunts, I've always felt that the Sanchez hasn't come close to its full potential, and I think your version of Simon's casino spot might be my favourite stunt in the video, that had such a sick serendipitous flick mid way through.

Stellar editing and smooth visuals, old games often look more dated than they should with modern LCDs and high resolutions, I think your use of copious crossfades and VCR compression strangely works in the game's favour, the visuals feel comfy and nostalgic. It reminded me of watching Tony Hawk's skateboarding guides on DVD, then going in my garden to try landing an ollie, only to fail and feel despondent, and months later going to a skate park on a school trip, then trying to descend down a half pipe, only to fall off backwards... but failing is fun, and so is this video :D. I'm 30 but I feel like I'm 40 when I realise that Vice City is about 21 years old... it's good to see guys like you still killing it regardless :mellow:.

I just watched the original video and the additions, nice! The Fire Truck grind was easily the best in my opinion :D.

Fantastic stunts and editing! Gesior's tool seems like a godsend, and Artifex gave it a workout :cc_detective:. I do think some angles and cuts prioritised novelty over clarity though, I skipped back multiple times to fully understand some stunts on my first viewing, like Biel's opener (I had to pause the video just to see that he selected a Bandito for his CSM), Alienboy's stunt (the mounted camera in the middle breaks perspective so you can't easily see what happens), Legend's first grind combo (confusing cuts to new angles during complex spins), and Diaz's stunt (I had to pause to see what he bumped in the middle of the combo because the fence blocked visibility). I still loved the edit but having to skip back breaks the spell every time it happens, because you have to disrupt your immersion to understand what's going on.

There were lots of dope stunts but I'm always looking for surprises, and Sport's stunt felt freshest to me - we've seen this concept in the past, but I don't think it's been used with a curved double grind where the gas tank switches sides each time, the landmark looked amazing with this method too ;D. Sick job guys, keep it up! This video makes me miss stunting, but sometimes life gets in the way... :( :euro:.

I find most videos entertaining these days, but I do miss feeling the wow factor that happens when true masters release their work. I know some don't trust you, and I have some questions myself (2x speed cinematic cams in many of your live clips - I'm not sure if that means slowitdown might have been used, or if cinematic camera speed scales with FPS instead, or if you just sped them up while editing them, or whatever else could be causing this without testing), but man, you doubtlessly have brilliant creativity and skill ;D.

My favourite stunt was easily the MTB tecjump to bridge tecjump 180 to jump to backstoppie wallkick tecjump to spins to grind at 2:34 (you know it's good when it's a mouthful :blink:). I loved that backstoppie wallkick method in general actually, it feels like a bit of a game changer for bicycle stunting. No honest individual can deny you have one of SA's greatest minds, respect for your stunts and editing man as long as everything's legit :happy:.

Well done, there were many highlights but I'll just say that everyone landed some nice stunts! Ezraph's editing was definitely the star of the show, though I did think a couple of stunts were difficult to fully understand on my first viewing (like Haywire/ZeRo's spot, it's tricky to simultaneously follow the specifics of both versions unless you know the differences between them in advance). I'm looking forward to Haywire's section too :ninja:.

Good stunts, somehow GTA 3 and VCS are the only 3D GTA games I haven't tried stunting in :happy:. Keep it up! :)

does LCS have bikes? I only played VCS back in the day

LCS has bikes yeah, look up Limits of the Powers from the old days :ninja:.

Nice! My favourite stunts were the Ratel + Phantom Wedge multiplayer bump to building, and the Ruffian multi bump to sign precision.

Entertaining stunts, I was surprised by how enjoyable the editing was too given your post :euro:.

That was highly dank if I do say so myself. Loved some of those grinds, vibed with the edit, and the guest stunts were great, especially Cooper's spinny bump which was mad.

Dope video! It was great to see some of your progress in the months leading to release, but I'm glad you were sneaky and kept some of your best stunts a surprise :ninja:. Disciplo nailed the editing too, simple and clean with some cool tricks and memorable soul.

That was a nice surprise, great job guys! I liked how you maintained little details like my cam moves on the Sanchez mall wallride to grind, and Slayer's vocal performance on our duo stunts :lol:. Feels nice to know we made a long term mark on stunting. Best NU video since Vinyl :ninja:.
