My WMO finally has some trouble with the wiring after 3 years of intense usage. I can't use it anymore though as it turns off randomly while I'm playing. Using an IE 3.0 atm and although I love the shape, the size and weight are a bit too much for me. The IE 3 shape + the WMO scale and weight would be my perfect mouse but anyway, I need to get something smaller and lighter.
I was gonna buy 3 WMO's but that fell through. I can't seem to find them anywhere in India these days. Any suggestions on similar mice?
My options so far are Razer Krait and Salmosa but I don't really know the technical difference between the two. I don't need side buttons so there's no reason to pay extra for a Diamondback. The problem is I'm rather skeptical about buying Razer after having 2 Diamondbacks die out on me out of nowhere.
Anything from Logitech, perhaps? The G3 shape is comfy but I use a pretty low sens and I heard it skips.
Bah. Dunno. Help would be great. Thanks in advance.

I'm gonna make a small movie that shows off stuff from ESWC 2008. If anyone comes across some great action, please put down the time and a small description over here if you can. It would be very helpful. Thanks.
Gamegune and Masters demos are good too.

Over the weekend, I kinda started a bit of work on a short ESWC Masters vid which would kinda be like my previous video 'Three'. Turns out that link1n is making one too. I'm not sure how much he's gotten done but I personally haven't done much... just watched a few demos for frags and picked a few tracks to choose from. Haven't started capturing or anything.
Now 2 vids with the same content would be boring so I'm not sure whether to go on or just wait for ESWC Grand Finals for more content. An alternate plan is to make a comprehensive movie on all ESWC events from 2008. This includes the finals, the Masters and all the local qualifiers. However, this totally depends on the time I get in the coming months as I might be in between switching jobs.
Should I just make a short movie now as I have time for it or take a gamble on the time I get later on seeing as link1n is already making one of Masters...?
ESWC India has been canceled with less than 10 days to go for the qualifiers. I'm quite upset as I practiced as often as I could and was really confident about winning. I even tried hard to revive a small but dead scene by renting a server when all of India had none, by organizing weekend duel tournaments and trying to get people to play. However, I'm not pissed off with the local organizers at all. The guy behind it is a friend of mine and I know he tried really hard to make it happen but it fell through due to reasons behind his control. It's just really bad luck for us all over here.
The worst part is that I got to go to ESWC in 2006 for Quake 4, a game I didn't care about at all but I can't go now when I really want to. I would still get destroyed by the top players but it would have been fun to play them in a game I love before giving up 'competitive' gaming for good.
Anyway, rant over. Time to get back to dota and real life where I'm having a lot of fun at the moment.
Since people here seem to like mini Q3 vids, I thought I'd post this. My buddy at shaoprod, Mdoo made this little movie about his clan and the fun they have playing CTF pickups with a little bit of co-ordination over Teamspeak.
It isn't about frags. It isn't about mind blowing content. There's no first person footage at all. It sure made me lol though.
See if you like it.

mrks, the guy behind the famous Cetus movies and Freeform unveils his latest creation, Cattuthaj Jhana. This is a Quake 3 trickjumping video featuring two extremely skilled trickers, umeK and buddha from clan Qiang Shi.
cristal, fresh after the completion of Unity has aided the project by editing 3 minutes of the movie. The video also comes with 6 different audio mixes to give people a choice of music styles. The demos have also been included in the archive.
Note: The "menu" was done by umeK himself. If you dont want to use the launcher to watch the video you can grab the .avi in the /video/ directory.
Also included with the launcher is the media player classic and the ffdshow filter to guarantee you smooth playback.
Running Time - 11 minutes and 46 seconds
Codec Required - XviD
Resolutions - 1280x720 (HQ) 720x405 (MQ)
It's my birthday today \o/ so I'm giving you guys a small teaser to the project I'm currently working on.
Shaolin Productions presents Round3, the sequel to the RA3 classic of 2003 made by rocketbear. (link). You can expect to see quite a few breathtaking frags by rocketbear and his friends. This is a small preview of things to come.
A few of you may whine that it's all RA3 but I'll try to edit it well and keep it interesting :)
Available in 1280x720 and 800x450 resolutions. Codec required is XviD. The HD version may require a fast computer. Duration of the trailer is 1 minute and 10 seconds.
I hope you like it.

We gave you Anti-Conformist a few days back but we don't feel like stopping :)
Five months after the trailer Chip 'n Dale... err I mean fei and cristal of Shaolin Productions have finished Unity, a Quake 3 team trickjumping video featuring a total of 27 trickers from around the world.
From the readme :
Some of the greatest team tricks you have ever seen. Lead by iT_raTe, many less famous yet highly skilled trickers took up the task of filling in the hole left by Team iT after the dishearting cancelation of "iTeam" which was going be edited by mrks (the demos got leaked, care-level dropped to zero).
Many of these demos shown are high ping (200+) and are some very complex timing, so please apreciate the skill involved, hopefully cristal and I have shown the content in a way that improves the look and feel of Q3 vq3 tricking. There is a balance of weapons and maps, cams and effects, that should please even non Q3 players.
Note - The x.264 HD version requires a very good CPU for proper playback due to its high resolution (1280x720). Most people would be better off downloading the x.264 HQ version which looks very good anyway. Download the HD version only if you are sure that your computer can handle it (usually atleast 2.5ghz and higher)
For those who prefer something a little more 'chilled out' than the psy-trance track, there is an alternative available in the same file itself. You can switch to it when using a player like MPC or VLC. (Right click the video, Audio -> 2nd track is how you do it in MPC)
Many of you may probably remember the video Deception by Tchouky that was released sometime in 2004. Well, after a long two year gap, he decided to stop being lazy and make us all at Shaolin Productions very proud again :)
The result is Anti-Conformist, a frag, trick, Quake 3 vid(!!!) where he displays his really cool bot programming skills once again. If Visor could do 3x RJ's, maybe Mynx can dance. Expect some fragging that is probably impossible to do without the scripting as well. In short, it is a pure visual treat that is definitely worth checking out. hf.
[23:00] <+uv-Max-> isn't the term, non-conformist? :O
[23:00] <@sp^fei> no, we are being anti-conformist by not conforming to the conformist way of naming the non-conformist.
fei and cristal of Shaolin Productions had nothing to do so they whipped up a small trailer for their upcoming Quake 3 Team Trickjumping video starring iT_raTe, nebula, flesh and others. Unity... coming soon.
Running time : 1 minute 14 seconds
Filesize : 14mb
Mercurial is a CPMA frag movie edited by me and it features some of the best frags by players from the promode community. It contains action from various maps and gametypes. This video has also endured tsunamis, earthquakes, floods, power cuts and hard disk failures so download it before it gets stolen by a magpie.
Fei of Shaolin Productions, famous for his work on Get Quaked 3 presents to you his latest creation Lepus, a CPM Defrag video featuring clan eXtreme Rage.
While not a project as big as GQ3, this video is certainly enjoyable with skilled CPM as well as VQ3 Defrag runs, clean editing, unique camera angles and music mixed by Shaolin Production's very own jrb.
Both x264 and XviD versions are available from the list of mirrors on own-age.com. HF.
Fjoggs of Twilight Pictures & Wussie of Shaolin Productions present to you: Admiratio - A Quake 4 Trickjumping movie.
--- Quoted by Wussie:-
This movie features all kinds of tricks on almost all standard Quake 4 maps, performed by Fjoggs, Wussie and Niklz.. All of this is synched to a few catchy, stylish tunes.
The main attraction would be the new Trickjumping technique Niklz and me found, but you'll have to download in order to check it out!
For me, the main reason to make this video was to prove to the Quake community that Quake 4 DOES have Tricking AND Moviemaking potential, even though both aren't perfect yet (namely the Moviemaking stuff), it's still possible to create a decent video with it.
Earlier today, Shaolin Productions presented to you Get Quaked 3. While the editors are taking a well deserved rest, the rest of the boys at SP are being busy little bees. Wussie, the creator of the recent 'Nameless' is proud to give you the trailer to his current project, Anathema. This file was included in the bigger version of the GQ3 archive but those who don't have it can grab it now. HF.
Running Time : 0 mins 51 seconds.
Codec : x264 & XviD versions available.
The third installment of the famous Quake 3 frag video series which could quite possibly be one of the most anticipated game videos ever is out now. From the creators of Bullshit Expedition 2 and Dedicated - Robo-K1ll & Fei, comes a movie where Quake 3 is taken to a new level... again.
The frags are of really high quality so turn up the volume, full screen the movie and remove (violently if needed) any other distractions. Get Quaked 3 from Twilight Pictures and Shaolin Productions. Enjoy.
Running Time : 19 minutes 15 seconds.
Codec : x264. (xvid version coming soon for those with a slow computer/having trouble)
Those following the game video scene regularly may recall the above mentioned editors being a part of a different group. Along with this video, we are proud to announce to you the merge between Shaolin Productions and Twilight Pictures. Read more at www.shaolinproductions.org
TECHNICAL/IMPORTANT: In case of poor playback or bad quality try turning off post processing in fddshow playback settings. right click on the icon in your system tray while playing back the movie to check if it is on. Some have seen that this setting totally ruins a movie so its best left off. Follow the ReadMe for more info.
Edit : The bigger version of the GQ3 archive contained the trailer to Anathema by Wussie of Shaolin Productions. Those who don't have it can download it here.
A Quake III Arena Frag Highlights video made by Alex Curson. This video was made over a 9 month period and shows some of the best frags from Bullshit Enterprises, and a few others. The movie is a different format from most other quake movies, each star having their own "part", consisting of an entire song. It's not easy collecting a lot of "good" footage by yourself and I think we have all done very well in doing so.
mrks of shaolin productions, known for great tricking jumping videos like the CeTuS movies and freeform has unveiled his latest creation. Reaching Aural Nirvana is a trickjumping video that is quite different from your generic trick vid. Here's what mrks has to say about it:
Taken from the description -
"It's a pleasure to present you our newest work. Reaching Aural Nirvana may be a bit of a different movie. It comes with chilled music in the first track, and a bit more danceable tunes in the second track, but overall the concept was to make a movie to relax to. LSD isn't included in the zip though. But there's a 7:10min trip that should make you reach another aural sphere. Coming with the support of 2 fs gods, I'm showing you my latest tricks. Music comes from Shpongle, Kyau vs. Albert, Astrix and the playboy number one - Benny Benassi.
Enjoy and be good !"
If you would like to sit back and relax to some smooth music and visuals, download this video now.
I present to you a collection of jumps, runs and moves done in CPMA by mew and poub. My approach to this vid was simple yet different in its own way. I have attempted to synch the music to the mouse movements in this video. Enjoy the dance :)
