Can someone create a goldsource mapping guide for me? And can you make (if possible) videos to explain what you are doing? You'll be rewarded greatly, (100 points) donated to your account, thank you! Also mention tips and facts, like what makes the map good.

    A mapping guide with videos for only 100 points? I don't think this is gonna work out. Probably 2,000 points would be ok (just saying).

    Keep in mind that videos are time consuming, and also, a full guide to Goldsource mapping has really A LOT of things! It needs to be writed, explained, and you even have to build example maps (a lot of them) to make the videos. It's really time consuming.

    I wanted to make a clear and high definition mapping guide on YouTube some time ago, but I can't because of my old pc (making videos and render them in 720p with Vegas Pro is a pain in the ass). So, as soon as I have a new PC I'll probably think about making one. :)

    If you use Hypercam, it records pre-compressed videos that can be uploaded to Youtube straightaway.

    AMD Sempron 2500+ 1.75 GHz, 1 GB Ram 400 MHz, ATI Radeon 9250 256 MB AGP 8x.

    And I also have to use Fraps to make in-game recordings. This pc is too old to handle a real time recording. The only way would be to have a built-in PCI recording card. :/

    I was just saying, but good to know that (it's better).
