  • The Rambo Challenge

    Gotta find new ways of having fun until new content is released. Here is the challenge: To complete all single missions "solo" on insane. Yes, some of them might seem impossible (Observation, Barracks) but surely someone will find a way to beat them. So far, all the single missions except Observation have been completed solo.
    -------------
    Rules:

    1) You can use any exploits of the map.

    2) You can take another char and suicide him at the very beginning of the mission to complete the map with your favourite class (works well for Research or Barracks). You can also atempt a mission from within a campaign, so as to have your character with full stars.

    3) You need a demo. I won't take your word for it. Both demo styles are ok, and a screenshot of the debriefing would be nice.

    Status: Just one mission to go!

    - Observation: (Open)

    Hint: Record the demo online to get top-down view.
    Hint: Left-click while watching a first person demo to get the free view, right click and use the mouse wheel to get nice third person views -- including top-down.

            2) You can take a techie and suicide him at the very beginning of the mission to complete the map with your favourite class.
            No you can't. You still need hacking tool, and if you take hacking tool, you don't need to take tech.

              Not quite, although I realize this may only work on Research: You need a tech to start the mission but you don't need to hack anything in order to complete it (Proof in demo).

                  Butters: I was waiting for someone to start a thread like this.
                  It would be nice if you'd add the name / demo of ANYONE who has done the run. Maybe a little more work, but not too much: I don't think you'll have 20+ people making it through ReactorCore alone... Then again, it might get a little silly having my name up there 7 times, once for each level.

                    Sure. Actually I had your run on Reactor in the original post, but my idea is to have only top-down demos, so I wanted to replace all the first person ones as top-down demos become available. I think I will stick to this, because first person demos are hardly enjoyable and make the game look very weird, but I will add all top-down demos to the list. So make the run again, recording top-down and i will add it

                    To record top-down, the following recipe seems to work: join a server and record online. It gives the handicap of a higher ping, but it is the only way I have managed to record top-down demos (found out today, after trying unsuccessfully to record top-down on my computer).

                    On a side note, I now think both Uplink and Observation are doable, but Barracks is going to be nearly impossible.

                      I disagree. Did you realize that you can left click to switch the camera to FREE FLOATING during a first person demo? Using the free floating camera, you can get some AMAZING footage (good for recording movies). True, with the top-down you see how it was ACTUALY DONE from a game play perspective... But it's so... boring. I wish there was a way to have BOTH in ONE demo.

                          No, I hadn't. It looks much better now . Both demo styles seem to have their pros and cons, so I guess either of them can appeal to viewers (I still prefer top-down).

                          I will modify the original post to accept both now. It is a pity that the debriefing screen and ammo/health counters don't show up in first person, althought the heart beats give you some indication of the remaining health.

                          Recording the demo online seems to do the trick. I.e. join an empty server, start the mission, type 'demorec Monkyleet'.

                            If you record offline, you can change the way you are looking at the person, from free floating to top view to first person. Online, you can only change the way the person is looking, but it is funny to see flame coming out someones rear...

                              Uplink simply can't be done on insane with one person. They can't carry enough ammo. Even if you sprinted stright to him without firing a shot (somehow defending yourself from the onslaught while you take the radar dish), took dual flamers and a pistol, he doesn't die.

                              Don't believe me? 'marineinvun', and run there. No threats, and you can spend all your ammo into Big Guy.
