    ns_nancy 3.0f walkthrough

    My machine just can't do great quality when it comes to capturing video from the screen, but here's me walking around ns_nancy on an empty NS 3.0 playtesting server.

    Despite my +use command being bound the the default "e" key, I was unable to "+use" anything on the map. Seeing as how I don't playtest 3.0, I'm not sure if this is a problem with my Steam installation, NS 3.0f, or the ns_nancy map itself. Anyway, it kept me from opening doors. I would have tried using parasite to open doors, but I was the only player on the server and couldn't start a game. Despite not being able to open doors, I found it possible to get to almost all of the map.

    The first minute of the movie is pretty much me figuring out the best way to get into the map. The "holes" in the ready room don't really work as advertised, but I finally use a bind to join the alien team. You can see me getting "stuck" on some invisible "walls" in both the ready room and the rest of the map.

    Visually, I'd say it's not the same ns_nancy I remember. However, from a playability standpoint (which is what matters), I'm pleasantly surprised with how exactly it follows the original ns_nancy's layout and design. The few changes the remake team made are, in my opinion, excellent.

    I very much look forward to playing this map on our server and with you guys.

    The image quality of the capture is poor enough as it is, so I didn't compress the captured video in any way. What little quality there is I want you guys to have. This makes the download bigger, but most of us are on broadband.

    Hm. That's no good. Can someone else validate this problem?

    Hm. I just downloaded the zip file, extracted and opened the .wmv file and it played for me no problem. I'm using Windows Media Player 9.00.00.3075 to play the file.

    On a side note, the video has no audio. This is by design.

    Doesn't work for me either.
    Won't unzip using WINRAR or Winzip or pkunzip.
    I do what I can.

    Negative. This is a result of you being the only one in the server, and the match not having started. Try it on our server some time. If your the only one on the server, and the match hasn't started, none of the switches will work, and any breakable glass will be unbreakable. In my experience, elevators are the only 'moving' entities that work in this state, and doors that automaticly open for you.

    Did you "Right Click and Save As"? I found this only downloads a 400KB file, that is corrupt. However if I just clicked on the link and let it load, I was transferred the full video file.
