So yesterday I mentioned the idea of devoting Tuesdays to posting about TF2. The idea was to post in game footage of things like cool kills, killing streaks, or embarrassing deaths. However, what I didn't have in mind at the time, is that my computer isn't very powerful.
My rig only has a gig of ram and has a 1.60GHz Dual Core processor. While these specs are just fine for playing the game just fine, it really gets bogged down when I try to record demos. My answer to this would to use the recently released Replay system. The only problem with that is that I would have to remember to save the Replay when I died if anything interesting happened during that life. One thing you will probably learn about me throughout the life of this blog, is that I am quite absent-minded. If I get an amazing kill, say I reflect an enemy Soldier's crit rocket and the blast damage wipes out half of the enemy team, well, that's certainly something I would want to show off! However, say I'm really on my game that day, and that life lasts for 10 minutes. When I finally die, chances are that I won't remember to save the Replay until it's too late. Do you see my problem?
I guess for now I'll just try to remember to save my replays until I either get a better rig or find another way to do things. But the better rig requires money, and in the position I'm in at the moment, it might be awhile before I have that much money.
While we're on the subject though, what kind of specs would I need to have my game constantly recording a demo so I can just set it to record and start playing? If you know, or if you have anything else you'd like to say on the matter, leave it in a comment :D
