Hello XJ,

the next interviewee is Country: Czech Republic blackelf2002, a moviemaker known especially for his outstanding work on fu_extreme documentary. Recently, he edited few demos, that have been saved for the next release. The clips we present to you exclusively before the release itself are also made by the today's star. He stated that he learned a lot while editing my demos and it is my personal pleasure to have my demos immortalized this way. At his 16 years old, this guy shows his talents and drive to improve himself in graphic-related stuff and I am sure he couldn't have any better start than that. Enjoy the interview with Country: Czech Republic blackelf2002 in extended newspost!

Let us present the mentioned clips of which two are cut versions due to countless fails. Stay tuned for the upcoming release!



Map: kzblt_dx_blueshadow2

Country: Czech Republic blackelf2002: Working with this demo was really annoying, some the fails were really difficult to cut out. The weapon animation was different every time + on lot of jumps the movement was really different. But on some places, the movement was almost the same and you can barely notice a cut there. On time 1:10, I can't almost see it even if I focus.

Country: Czech Republic shooting-star CS 1.6 Recordholder: As you might have noticed, this map has been remade. The cause of it was a part of the map that was simply impossible to do with a slightest fps drop. The remake resulted in even harder blockpart, that required a serious effort to complete. You cannot imagine my surprise when I was caught not knowing the rest of the map after completing this blockpart.




Map: kzblt_dx_mercy

Country: Czech Republic blackelf2002: This one was more fun working on. The map was more interesting for me, and there were less cuts needed. Also on this one, the cuts were so much easier to do. The movement was insanely consistent in this demo.

Country: Czech Republic shooting-star CS 1.6 Recordholder: I enjoyed recording this map even though it has some pretty nasty jumps. While on the last block, my keyboard stalled and I had to complete two blockparts repeatedly. After making that happen, I somehow did the last block almost first try. This was a huge luck and as a result, I spent on this map less time than expected.



Map: kkz_texture

Country: Czech Republic blackelf2002: This is what I consider to be my most succesfull work. There is plenty of reasons: You can see your own shadow, and reflections, I added an object that was never located on this map, and replaced the original, and also the titles. I was aiming for a futuristic look, and I think i succeeded.

Country: Czech Republic shooting-star CS 1.6 Recordholder: Recording kkz_texture was always my kreedz goal. I never managed to get consistent on either the window part or the drop shortcut. Now I finally broke the skill requirement and managed to get this WR even with a shortcut discovered years ago and proven "possible in a run" by patchouli on a public server.


Finally, check blackelf's YouTube channel for more!

XJ team

Hello community,

last release brought a bunch of truly great demos. The run of the week is Country: Czech Republic fykseN Mapper CS 1.6 Recordholder's run on kz_man_congo_b01. We asked the man behind this record to describe his efforts. Our gratitude goes to Country: Russian Federation akse, who kindly offered his help in moviemaking aspect of ROTW's!

I still love to re-visit the oldest maps and search for new ways on them. This one was a test for myself as even the oldest demos from Toffifee are still holding strong. It's never easy to keep up with the precision, but this time I alternated few combos and added my own signature to the run. To be completely honest, it took a while to figure out the last part and I also needed a pause after the most bizzare fail of my career on the ledge just before the last tower. However, this game is about recording and I purely enjoyed this old map piece. I'd like to thank Country: Russian Federation Toffifee CS 1.6 Recordholder Gold Donator Gold Cupwinner for the kind words and Country: Czech Republic PU9maker CS 1.6 Recordholder for the laughs on my LAN, long live the KZ :)
