I've downloaded a demo but I can't open a .rar-file. How do I open it?

  • .rar-files are compressed files. You need WinRAR to open .rar-files. You can click this or this link to download WinRAR. Now uncompress the file with WinRAR. Then put the demo in your cstrike-folder (unless you un-RARed it in that folder) and start counter-strike. To view the demo you type 'viewdemo demo-name' or 'playdemo demo-name'.

What is a 'Timerbug'?

  • A timerbug is a timeshift between the ingame kz timer (which uses the HL engine clock) and the record time/real time.
  • The longer server uptime you have, the less synchronized the ingame timer and record time will be. To avoid this we recommend you to restart your LAN as often as possible.
  • A timerbug occurs with a probability of 90% if the server is running longer than 60 minutes, therfore you have to restart the server after 50-60 minutes.
  • A timerbug fools you to think that you are faster than you actually are, and that`s why your record could be replaced by another player`s record - if his demo has a synchronized ingame and record time.
  • Tools such as DemoChecker or Fps Death help you to see the record time. Both of these tools use the HL-engine clock to get the correct value of the record time.
  • Timerbug example:
  • You stop the ingame kz timer at 02:00, but the record time is showing 02:01, 02:02, 02:03 or slower. A non timerbugged demo would show the same ingame time as the record time, both showing 02:00.
  • Due to the kz timer's slight inaccuracy we've implemented real time records to prevent timerbugged demos and unfair time shifts (see // Timer rules under Demo rule section for details).
