Building Sword Fighting Combo Videos Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

NOTE : The videos are animated gifs within each post. If you have problem viewing them, right click and save to your desktop and than open it up.

[size=24]DISCLAIMER
The following video is here to show you just how you are supposed to be building combos under ideal conditions where as an opponent doesn't send you as much blocks. Idealy a opponent sends over more sprinkles and swords. Do not attempt to imitate these at home. All stunts are performed by professionals.



This video shows a litte bit how to build blocks, but is generaly a bad idea to build that high. I got lucky this time.

People want to see in action how combos are built, here is a sample of, one of my videos (not one of the best examples :) ), but it gets the point across.

Yes, I know its of a small size, but it helps to save bandwidth.

What I would like to know is what do people want to learn from seeing these videos ?

How specific combinations are built ?

What are the different strategies ?

How drops happen ?

Whats a winning strategy ?

I am working on a ultimate guide to sword fighting, and looking for input before I embark on writing it all out. Have parts of it done so far, but looking for more feedback before I finish the whole guide.

I am also looking for some of the best sword fighters to do a profile on their style and strategy. The ultimate sword fighters if interested, send me a PM (You know who you are).

Jack, you just beat me to it :p

http://www.fileplanet.com/dl.aspx?/planetdiablo/newdawn/swordfight.avi

It's DivX, and it's a bit more basic and sword-clustery than yours. Still, it shows off the nessecary building nicely. If you wanna do the two-way video thing sometime Jack, look me up :)

This video shows a far larger combination of sword combos as well as a VEGAS.

The frame rate (speed of the fight) was slowed down, from the actual sword fight, so that you can see the details more.

Thanks for the time and effort you put into this jack, im not a noob but i still found this a great help, i think it will help people visualise how to build decent combos. what would be good is a video of your opponent so its possible to see the attacks going through, anything i can do to help just ask.

This is an actual fight that you shouldn't try imitating unless properly trained.
Do not attempt to imitate these at home, without proper safety precautions. All stunts are performed by professionals.



Well this is a fight with cursedburger.

Again just to clarify things, the first two videos were just to show how to go about building combos. Thats all. Its not supposed to be THE ULTIMATE strategy. It is something for people to visualize the building process.

Im just curious, because watching the videos (which in my honest opinion are very well put together and extraordinary helping tools), as I watched the one where you actually complete a vegas combo, has anyone ever attained a combo over the seemingly limited 6 or vegas?

Sure they have (though I certainly haven't . . . I can only get the regular Vegas!, and rarely at that).

And before you ask, it's Vegas all the way down.

Talk to Sugar[pie/cookie]. I'm not sure how high she strings vegas up to, but I think she's a proponent of adding more bonus messages.

Oh, and Jack, I'm semi-busy tommorow too... hopefully I can get some time to do more two-sided videos on the weekend...

So I downloaded the building animation above so that I can enlarge it and watch it slowly, and guess what I notice. It's me he's victimizing! How embarassing. Still, I don't feel so bad about losing, I suppose.

mmk.

Combo 1
Combo 2
Combo 3

You'll want Divx if you don't have it

These were just some random fights I did against an NPP... but It shows how I build around what I get thrown at me.

I have to throw my brother off his computer to do them, as all the others:

a) Don't have that complicated video setup installed.
b) Would lag too much for me to swordfight properly.

As of about 12:45 AM Pacific, I'm failing to locate the machine (airraid.mancubus.net) that Aiziril's AVI files are on. Is it a machine that's only on when a certain person is awake (a personal machine), or are the URLs screwy?

hey hmm i'm sure i'm not that good but i wanted to challenge you to a duel and if you could record it it would be great
i have a couple of reasons
basically my strategy is to break when i can, i usually set up double or triples sometimes too but never go further as it's 2 risky since ur opponent sends in swords and sprinkles, now i'd like to see what your strategy would be to some1 who constantly sends in swords and sprinkles, and if yours works better then i'll have to change my style and you can put that video up here too so people will so how you can terrorize me lol and my second reason is i want to taste a vegas or donkey, by an actually player, not bots
well i'm on the viridian ocean and my username is shinpe
i'm online alot so send me a tell
can't wait
