My FPS Journeys

Don't really want to make one thread after another with each new vid, so **** it I'm making one that I'll just update as time goes on.

These vids are all FPS: First Person Shooter. I have a helmet camera mounted on the side of my mask capturing all the goodness. Plus it'll be good 10 years from now to re-live the events I've already been at.

**UPDATED**

FPS YEAR IN REVIEW

Though what I've learned about helmet cam use is this. Don't wear them in Scenarios for regular use. There's far too many times where ya need to lay in wait for as much as 15 minutes for an ambush. That's 15min of dead air time and wasted battery usage. I think I'll save the use for opening starts and final battles. Because a lot of my overall footage is useless for that very reason.

And honestly I want to find a way to mount the camera differently. Specifically a way to mount it on the right side somehow. So when I'm poking out the bunker it'll show what I'm shooting at. Problem so far has been that a right-mask mounted setup would get in the way. I always pull the marker up and hug it to the face, it'd always hit the camera and piss me off. So I gotta make a mount that can allow it to be on the right side but out of the way of the marker.

CASTLE CONQUEST XXIV

Fall Castle of 2007. This game was nuts! Leading the defense was the Canadians... an entire city of American-looking people who do nothing but eat cheese, play hockey, and plan battle strategies nonstop! It must be a good system for them, they took the victory this event. Congratulations to them and all defenders. They were extremely organized and busted their coconuts all game long, that is why they won.

Us attackers, as a whole, just didn't do what we needed to. Specifically we didn't have the Castle veterans pushing Castle newbies forward. Because of which the newbs were causing a lot of friendly fire casualties for us. And those of us that were on the walls just didn't push in great enough numbers, or in enough force. If we had a little more organization and pushed harder it might've been different. Numerous times these walls were on the verge of collapse with our takeover, but we just didn't get it done.

VIPER SCENARIO @ THE EMR EXTRAVAGANZA

[Putting in event summary later]



__________________________________________________


BATAAN

Memorial Day Weekend at EMR Paintball Park. We were the Japanese forces going against the American pig-dogs. The weather was on our side all weekend long! About 100 showed up for the event. Most of the day I ran with the Phantom. I got a new mini-hopper and mini-pod setup and needed to test it out. I love the hopper, but the APP 30rnd pods are a pain (specifically the lids). I'll probably get the 50rnd pods. They have much better lids.

But then the final battle came. Firepower was more important than shot picking. Grabbed the DM6 and slammed half a case on my back. Overall this was such a fun event! Well run, no troubles, organization was great, all the players rocked, no gun troubles, basically a picture perfect weekend. Anybody watching this really should consider heading to EMR for a game at least once a year.

LONG ISLAND BIG GAME

I'm not happy with the quality. I'm going to re-edit the vid and save it as a larger produced file. Might take longer to download but visually will be worth it compared to what Youtube shat out. That and cut back on some of the early footage of just roaming around in the tank.

But overall riding in The Panther tank as a gunner is just one of the funnest experiences you can have. If you have a high threshold for pain. Because as the gunner you can't be shot out. You must eliminate the tank itself. So I can get stitched all day long, but it'll just tell me in what direction to shoot in. Since I'm blinded by paint half the time.

*Now I've finally salvaged at least most of the first insertion I was apart of. Some of the end of that, and the others all together were completely lost. Yeah I def need to get a miniDV with an av input to replace my current setup.

CASTLE CONQUEST XXIII
This past Saturday, April 28, at EMR Paintball was Castle Conquest. It's a 4:1 attacker to defender ratio event. This event had over 1300 people! And unlike some other places where that is hundreds of people spread across dozens and dozens of acres. This game concentrates everybody on one single location of a non-stop intense kickassathon!
FPS: CCXXIII on Youtube

**
To get an idea of just how the terrain is, and just how massive Castle Aaarrgh is, check out this runthrough. Was made during a January work weekend, not during a live game. Wall 3, the back wall, was still under construction. So I need to make an updated version that includes vid of that section of the Castle.

SPRING PUMP EVENT 2007
SPE is a Mid-West pump gathering going on for a few years now. This year reaching about 150 pump players. Your choice of woodsball or speedball. Saturday being open play, Sunday the 5-man pump tournament (but also has open play for those that prefer that instead)

FPS: SPE07 on Youtube
FPS: SPE07 on Putfile

MCB Cold *** Game
Another annual event, this one in February, held together by the MCB crew at Wanna-Play Paintball. This was my first actual event that I got to use this helmet camera equipment in. Broke the cherry! It's not all pump, I chose to use one. Many are using semis, some electros, and some others are using pumps as well.

Got back from Coram's Long Island Big Game this past weekend. That was a great event. Record breaking numbers for them. So I updated the FPS list and added that vid.

I'm still attempting to salvage the footage of me on foot runnin around shooting, however those files are corrupt and a "missing index" whatever that means. But still I might be able to get some of that in the near future.

Updated with Bataan at EMR. Bought a new miniDV camcorder. I think I'll test the new equipment at the Jersey Nam game.

I thought that was kinda cool. Some cool scenario action. Nice storm on the castle at the end(first vid). Your team didn't do anything and you took the castle. Nice DM6 there. Cool stuff man.
