  1. Sure. They can do anything with them that they want to. The 8 part video that is. Anyone can. Feel free to do so.

    The 2 zips that you see above are little packages of jump shots that are all raw_84 files. THOSE ARE JUST RECORDINGS of RANDOM SNIPER TRICK SHOT PRACTICE that contain:

    >Demos

    > Notes

    > Viewing instructions/guide for jump shot demo reviews with Seawall Battery being THE map that was hand picked for that example!

    > Mod pk3 files (for viewing the demo that they were actually record on) 

    I hope people will see those demos and try and learn how it's done. If anything, it's pretty trippy to SEE 1st and 3rd person perspectives of jump shots in action. My notes help everyone to CLEARLY see it both ways.

  2. PART 1: ET Video Project of My Old ET Demo's

    (8 clips that make up one continuous movie theme)

    It's better that you have these raw clips (rather than a YouTube link). This way you guys can actually own them for yourself. Please, do whatever the hell you like with these clips. I do not care. I just hope that you can enjoy them over the Christmas/New Year's season.

    They were all mixed and put together so that each clip connects directly into the next clip (conceptually) from start to finish. There's also a lot of music spots in here as well.

    PART 2: My Sniper Jump Shot Practice Demos

    There are 2 demo's zip files.

    One of Nitmod 2.3.2

    One of Silent 0.9.0

    Jump Shots are something that a fellow dP: Clan member showed me how to do many years ago.
    I still do it to this very day!

    These demo's are of me training exclusively with trick shots.

    HAVE FUN AND ENJOY YOURSELF!

    MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!

  3. An old friend and fellow ex dP:! clan member posted this link today

                          https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gS5IfummjX4

    Additional info here: https://www.moddb.com/mods/et


    It was originally posted to YouTube 11/19/2021 (last Friday to be exact). Will I buy the PC version of the disc? Yes. Yes I will and with an extra copy or two kept in the package for collecting. Pappy has a great point about UE-5 that carries over into this 'new' release IMO (see my links above) because, if I can't snipe the way that I am used to then, that would be a huge drawback for me. Still, there may be features that would help me to overlook that aspect. We shall see.  

    The first thing that came to my mind while watching this NEW trailer was this post of Kate's about the UE-5 project and how much better the UE-5 graphics in her video looked when compared to those of this video for the 11 30 2021 release. That's just my personal perspective. There's a remarkable difference when I compare the two and to me, I found that to be a bit odd. 

    The UE-5 graphics look so good that they should, at the very least, also make a QUALITY UE-5 ET Movie Maker Tool (a DM_84 Demo tool to be exact). A tool like that c/o UE-5 would make demos look wayyyyyy better. 


    UE-5 Movie Making Tool with: 
    > Various "click and choose" graphics scripts plus features that improve video output quality. 
    > Provide ease of playback and better viewing controls and options. 
    > Options to rip various demo segments just by adding time start ??:?? | time end ??|?? (pop fresh cuts/clips off, on the fly, into a new folder)
    > Burn/Transfer clips, on the spot, in various formats outside of AVI to a new master file.

    Now I wonder if the UE-5 and this new release can be merged for even better graphics?

  4. I have to confess: I don't own any of their material. I also never 'made copies of any sessions' to take home during my years. That's a HUGE no-no in the business. That's the truth man.

    When you work on an LP/CD, you hear those songs SO MANY TIMES before they hit the shelves that you don't need the CD! Some of you out there may have private home sessions and record a lot. Cheers to you too! I don't care WHAT it is man but, before your tracks are mixed down and ready for CD or, just a finished track to have on your rack (aka In The Can) you have heard THAT material A WHOLE LOT!

    The golden moments for me that the public will never know OR hear came at the end of a typical 14 hour recording day in the form of SPONTANEOUS JAM SESSIONS! The producer: When he leaves for the day, it's like daddy has left and the house and all of us boys want to be 'naughty' and HAVE SOME FUN ha ha. At that point it's just me, the main engineer and the band members. That's it! That's quality 'let's get fucking nuts' time!!
    #1 RULE: WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS - STAYS IN VEGAS!!!

    No matter who they are, everyone at some point will let it all hang out at the end of a long recording day. FUCK!!! THOSE JAMS ARE A TREASURED, powerful memory! I wish they would do that live or release material like that because man, that's when you see what they are really made of! Wow! They would just --JAM!!! One jam alone clocked in at 46 minutes! HELL YEAH! Me and the main engineer would just throw in a DAT tape, sit back at the console and record it all. This was strictly a secret between me and the main engineer -period! :classic_biggrin: We captured all of those moments BUT never told the band or the producer. That is, until the sessions were over. Then, he and I would present the band with the DAT 'JAMS' tapes (one for each member) as a gift. It had it all man! THEY LOVED THAT! They never knew we recorded that stuff. It's a great feeling seeing them so happy too!

    In the end, when it's all wrapped up on my end, your just happy to have a finished project that you can hopefully be proud of. Almost as soon as it's over, you're onto yet another project. There's no time to think and reflect because you were always moving onto a brand new thing. Kind of makes me home sick in way.

    The producer and main engineer get all of the credit in the end and, that's just fine with me. That's how things roll but, as the producer once told me with his arm around me, "Every brick in the house MATTERS and some, more than others." It was a compliment. These things don't make themselves and I was proud to have been there!

    Looking back the one thing I could not fucking stand was having to be in Los Angles, CA for long periods of time. Visiting and having fun: yes. Living there: Piss off!!! New York, Nashville, Mississippi, Chicago and Colorado were my most loved places to be.

    Europe runs on 220 (?) voltage and we run on 110 here in the USA. I would LOVE to visit studios in Europe on day. Those old, old post WW2 tube microphones that are everywhere in Europe and their 220 current power make for some really wonderful, dynamic sounding recordings. The stereo separations and dynamics are fantastic!! BIG SOUND!

    This is quite a piece of work indeed! Very trippy indeed, but in an undefinable way.

    Brings me back to my mdma days. Would have worked quite well with that too! :-D
    Come to think of it. I have some still lying around from 15 years ago. Nice opportunity to check if it's still potent after all that time! :classic_rolleyes:

    It's all that you said it was. This one's staying on my playlist!

    Youtube doesn't allow me to watch it, it says that the video is not available :/

    Hmmm. All that I can think of is that it's a region issue. Maybe ???  Try clicking the direct link and go straight to YouTube for a view. If that fails then, I don't know. I ripped the video to my archives but the file size if too big for posting here. Sorry dude :(

  7. I've been cleaning out a lot of old stuff from two offline PC's that I used to use constantly for audio editing and mixing.
    Among other things, I also came across some (incomplete) pictures that I randomly snapped while working with the Counting Crows on their Sessions.

    These were all that I could dig up so far but, I know there's a lot more --somewhere!!

    At this stage, we had already laid down all of the ground tracks (the framework for the entire mix)
    so, it was just individuals popping back into the studio from time to time to hammer out small overlays and "punch-in's" which left a lot of time for everyone else in the band to
    take a break and have fun fucking off! It was my job to keep them happy and give/get them whatever they asked for to keep the vibe flowing :)

    Anyway... here we are (even my "#1 Super Fun Time Girl" Cammy) hanging out and playing basketball at the studio. The lead singer, Adam Duritz, is on page 7. He had JUST come from knocking out vocal tracks.

    Crazy eh? It's shit like this that you don't go around blabbing about. You just did your job and had a great time too!

    Ya get one go on this crazy merry go round called LIFE so, ENJOY THE RIDE!

    Cheers!

    PS: That's me (2nd engineer) at the soundboard. The good ole days :)

  8. I'm being approached by a few people who want me to help them with their personal need. They have businesses. This is mostly Real Estate and finance related matters which, is REALLY boring stuff to most folks so, I will just leave it at that. Anyway, I've got their back -always- and will be in and out for now until the paths are clear. Just letting you know what is going on. Hope to see you soon.

    Thanks,

    Damn Centrifuge,
    it's like i'm talking to myself,,,

    This all agrees with a lot of highpoints I have with Zappa myself, but your Water Melon in Easter Hay remark was quite bizarre... It's recorded in my will that that piece will be played at my funeral. In the right (or wrong) mood, it always brings tears to my eyes, even after 40 years.
    (if other readers don't know what i'm talking about check this and see of you are vulnerable... )

    And OMG dude... Stevie's Spanking! Are you bloody reading my mind? Hands down one of the best collab solo's of those two! Zappa steamrolling and Steve on stunt guitar! Wow!

    It was well known he demanded a lot of his band members. His sometimes bizarre style and focus on precision was not for all musicians but if you survived Zappa, people knew you were good at something... (Ike Willis, Scott Tunis, Bobby Martin, Napoleon Murphy Brock, Ruth and so on and on and on...)

    I have every album he ever published (and the slew of bootlegs too) stored safely away. It's been with me all my life, but still sad he had to pass away so early...

    Same here! As a youngster I bought Joe's Garage Act I, II and III on a whim, and became a fan right away!

    That was my 3rd Zappa album to buy. 1st was Chunga's Revenge (I only liked the song and guitar work on '20 Small Cigars'). 2nd was Tinseltown Rebellion (live cuts from the 81/82 band) and 3rd was Joe's Garage! LOVED IT RIGHT AWAY! THAT'S when I was hooked! I learned how to play the solo from Watermellon in Easter Hay too! Beautiful song.

    He was (and still is) very popular over here in Europe. I even been to one of his performances in Rotterdam, 1988. Totally awesome show where the crowd cheered him back on the podium 3 times, like he was never going to quit!! One of my best memories!

    LUCKY! HE LOVED PLAYING EUROPE --A LOT! Zappa has/had always been very well received and respected there esp. Prauge in the Czech Republic. I never got to see Frank live but I've been an avid collector of his material for years and years. After seeing what music you're into I want to suggest checking out You Can't Do That On Stage Anymore Vol 5 (DISC 2 ONLY). The guitar solos and the TIGHTNESS of his 82 band was simply astounding! Check out the guitar solo on The Black Page #2 from that CD or, from the same tour/year THIS GUITAR SOLO >>>>> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TEnzdp71U78

    ONE MORE --FUN-- SUGGESTION: Anyone who likes Zappa's music should not pass this one by. You Can't Do That On Stage Anymore Vol 2 Helsinki, Finland (ALL of Disc's 1&2). This band IS NOT HUMAN! HOLY COW!!!!! I MEAN, JUST LISTEN TO THOSE GUYS! WOW! By the time you get to disc 2, the tempos are so much faster and they combine selections that are hard rock-ish with also back to back selections that are definitely influenced by Frank's classical compositions.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xVhxh_MBPHw&list=OLAK5uy_k4xOA05K8fm_0YZy3XOKwtEGHlOixgwp8

    I can dig it man! You eventually find that groove and routine that fuses. Seems that you have found yours and THAT'S HALF THE BATTLE my brother! There's so much in this world to tinker with and explore. It's weird. Sometimes you find the most interesting things to delve into and they come from the most unlikely places and people too! Pretty cool!

    I've been in and out lately. Mostly out. I've been managing all of my personal financial affairs while also nursing a badly broken foot. I have also been using a strong medication THAT I DON'T LIKE TO TAKE but, I must for now!  That's why I have been totally goofing off on the server lately then, vanishing.  I know that can't play well all doped up so, I just goof off and laugh about it.


    I've posted a bio-esc 'Greeting' that covers a good bit of info about me >>>  https://ets-clan.com/index.php?/forums/topic/880-greetings-from-centrifuge/&tab=comments#comment-2589

     

    Here's a bit more info:

    I am 55 years old.
    I live in Brandon, Mississippi.
    I graduated from the University of South Carolina with degrees in Psychology/Economics that I never once used!
    My true love is music and sound engineering (studio environments). That has always been my love. SOUND AND MUSIC REPRODUCTION/MIXING/EDITING!I have been a recording and studio 2nd engineer for most of my life. These days I just do a lot of mixing and editing from home (which I LOVE). Labels I have worked for in the past have included (but were not limited to) Warner Brothers | Island | Capitol | Dream Works | etc. and, some of the names that I've worked with that you may know are: Buddy Guy. Elvis Costello. Counting Crows...  
    I used to follow the Grateful Dead around (1985 > 1995) and record their concerts. That took me to every state in the US (except Alaska), Europe and, Tokyo where I met my girlfriend- Mikosawa (Miko) who just moved back to Japan to care for elderly family members c/o Corona related circumstances!

     

    Anyway, now I am just trying to relax and live a happy, humble life before God calls me home. 

    Peace and Hair Grease,
    Centrifuge!
