Demo rules

General rules

  • Approved AMXX packages for recording:

    XJ
    ALP
    KRD
  • If you are uncertain whether some feature/plugin is allowed for recording, always consult the demo admins before using them.
  • The demo must be complete. This means you have to start the demo before pressing the start button, and end the demo after pressing the stop button. If the start or the finish are not visible on the demo, the demo will be rejected.
  • Knife & USP are the only weapons allowed. Your average FPS must be over 85 and the demo must be recorded in first person. Using the standard nightvision is allowed.
  • The demo must be compressed with WinRAR. The .rar package must be named "mapname_playername_time", for example:

    "kz_jumprun_abcd_0044.50.rar"
    "bkz_goldbhop_abcd_0127.53.rar"
  • The demo file inside the archive has to be named exactly like below:

    "kz_jumprun_abcd_0044.50.dem"
    "bkz_goldbhop_abcd_0127.53.dem"
  • Submit the demo here. If you have problems uploading your demo, contact one of the demo admins found here. The nickname you are using to upload your demo has to be the same as your XJ account.
  • You are not allowed to change or edit your config or key binds during a run.
  • Plugins that add or modify visual elements in a map are not allowed. This includes WR bots, ghosts, visual time zones, collision warnings etc. Note that you can have time zones/checkpoints that print the info in chat or HUD, as long as the time zones/checkpoints are not visible in the map. Displaying real time info compared to any other demo is not allowed in any form.
  • You are not allowed to block standard sounds from steps, shooting, stabbing or receiving damage of any kind. This includes fall damage.
  • Fake demos are not allowed. You are not allowed to submit demos using other players nickname or username, you will receive a punishment for this depending on the severity of the attempt.
  • Non-Steam demos are NOT allowed. -> You can buy a legal copy of Counter-Strike on Steam.
  • You must set up your Steam profile (brand new or not) before submitting any demo.
  • Any demos uploaded with a VPN will automatically be rejected. If you absolutely can't upload your demo without one, contact one of the demo admins to get it uploaded.

Settings

  • The demo must be done with these server settings:

    edgefriction "2"
    sv_gravity "800"
    sv_stopspeed "75"
    sv_maxspeed "320"
    sv_accelerate "5"
    sv_airaccelerate "10"
    sv_wateraccelerate "10"
    sv_friction "4"
    sv_waterfriction "1"
    sv_stepsize "18"
    sv_maxvelocity "2000"
    sv_cheats "0"
    mp_footsteps "1"
  • Client settings:

    cl_lw "1"
    cl_sidespeed "400"
    cl_backspeed "400"
    cl_forwardspeed "400"
    cl_movespeedkey "0.52"
    fps_max "99.5"
    fps_override "0"
    gl_vsync "0"
  • You are not allowed to use any cvar/setting/script that might give you an advantage over default settings.

Timer rule

  • Use the approved recording packages to avoid timerbug, which can occur when recording without any plugins. In case of different times in the plugin and a demochecking program, the program will always overrule plugin time.

Additional rules

  • The demo must be recorded in your LAN server (New Game in the main menu).
  • IMPORTANT: You are not allowed to use methods which show your velocity during a run, this includes:

    /speed,
    /showpre,
    /ducks,
    /multibhop,
    /duckspre,
    /ljpre,
    /jumpoff

    ... and similar AMXX commands. You can disable these features in-game with the commands mentioned above, or by editing the plugins config file or amxx.cfg. If you are unable to disable them, contact any of the demo admins for help.
  • Using godmode is only allowed if there is a health button in the map. Using a health button before starting the timer is allowed.
  • All objects (doors, breakables and movable objects) and triggers must be in their default state before you press the start button. However, you are allowed to press the start button from any position you can reach it from. For example, doors must be closed and breakable objects must be intact before you start the timer.
  • You are allowed to use hook or noclip to reach a higher start position before using the timer. But this position MUST be reachable by normal climbing too. For example, players falling from great heights that use slanted surfaces to gain a speed boost for the start.
  • Demos that require any custom files to be downloaded before viewing (sprites, models, sounds, etc) will be rejected. Use the approved AMXX packages to avoid this.
  • It is forbidden to gain any advantage from another player present on your server. At the moment of starting the timer you must be the only player "alive" on your server.

LJ records rules

Maps

  • The following maps are accepted for official LJ records:

    kz_longjumparena
    kz_longjumps2
    kz_longjumps3
    kz_longjumps3_slides
  • kz_longjumparena: You must only jump from the narrower side of the block for Highjumps and not from the wider side (so that you are looking toward the wall with XXX units sign, like in this screenshot). The reason for this rule is to stay consistent with all other LJ maps and already established records and the opposite (landing) block is very wide which would make it significantly easier to jump from because of specific physics related to Highjumps.
  • Additional rules

  • The demo must be compressed with WinRAR. The .rar package must be named "block_technique_playername", using the following abbreviations:

    Longjump - lj
    Countjump - cj
    Standup Countjump - scj
    Double/Multi Countjump - dcj/mcj
    Highjump - hj
    Standup Bhopjump - sbj
    Bhopjump - bj
    Weirdjump - wj
    Ladderjump - ldj
    Slide Longjump - slj

    For example:

    "270_cj_abcd.rar"
    "256_lj_abcd.rar"
  • The demo file inside the archive has to be named exactly like below:

    "270_cj_abcd.dem"
    "256_lj_abcd.dem"
  • Plugins showing your velocity/pre/jof are allowed on LJ demos.
  • Each technique must be done on the appropriate block type, you can't do countjumps on highjump blocks. The demo should not be too long (maximum 2 minutes). Remember that the distance shown in-game by plugins might be different to the real jump distance. If you wish to know the real distance, contact any of the demo admins.
  • You are allowed to submit old wj demos from kzlt_weirdjumps. However, all new wj demos must be recorded on kz_longjumps3. Additionally, ladderjumps and slide longjumps are only allowed on the new maps.
  • The standard longjump prestrafe is the only allowed prestrafe technique for slide longjumps of any kind. Use of bhops or ducks in order to boost your prestrafe is not allowed.

Cup rules

  • Only Steam players are allowed to participate in cups. Any other version (like Non-Steam) is prohibitted.
  • All shortcuts are allowed unless a cup admin makes adjustments.
  • Only Knife/USP are allowed when playing.
  • Cheating in any form is not allowed and will get you banned.
  • If you are joining the server while a cup is running, you may only join the spectators.
  • If you are in the air when the round stops, your final position will be the one you are in after you have fallen down. If you die from this fall, your final position will be at the start button. To avoid such situations, always stand still right before the end of the round.
  • Spectators are not allowed in the cup server, use online streams to watch the cup.
  • You may only speak English.
  • If you signed for the cup and did not show up to play, you will be banned from the community for a set amount of time.

Ban times for cheating in demos

  • Ban times will be decided by the demo admins according to the severity of the case. Any player receiving a permanent ban for cheating will also get all of his current records removed.
  • Any player banned for cheating in another KZ community will also be banned on XJ. The ban duration will be decided by the demo admins.
