How to play back Q4 demos

After reading some forum posts I spent some time practicing jumps to get to the box armour and megahealth on Edge. So here it is, a two-jump to armour on the boxes, possible from both entrances opposite the stairs.

I expect other people may have already managed this, so I'm not trying to take credit. I saw an avi where someone used a circle jump, followed by a strafe jump then the slide and ramp jump, but this is much simpler. I also don't like the idea of making an avi, it gives the impression that you've been recording a long demo for hours and just spliced the good bits together!

My technique here is to use one circle jump for the initial speed burst so I'm turning the mouse for the first jump. Then I go into crouch just before landing which triggers the slide. While sliding I hold forward and right strafe to turn the player momentum around the other way, then lift crouch and jump quickly at the right moment. There's a fair bit of tolerance. If you time it right you can easily hit your head on the ceiling, or even go flying past the armour without landing.
