CSS Demo Crash Issues

    Trying to playback a demo I recorded earlier this morning. Plays fine but if I make it go faster or skip to a different tick mark, my CSS crashes. Anyone have any idea why?

    Thanks.

      When you skip from tic 0 to tick 30000, it takes time to load all that skipped data, if you leave it up it'll eventually start responding again, atleast that's how it works for me. As for speeding demos up, I find that breaks the demo because the game cannot keep up with that speed.

        Yes, I am aware of that. But when I skip or speed up, I hear the windows error sound and then the "hl2.exe has crashed" error manifests itself.

        Does it do that for all demos or just this demo in particular? Could be something in the demo that crashes it when it skips by it :s

        It does it for all demos. I wouldn't mind reinstalling CSS but would prefer not to.

        Did you use any console commands such as sm_users during the demo? Any console commands?

        If the demo has say 300k ticks and you want to watch 290k, do it in segments. 1 -> 50k, 50k -> 100k, 100k -> 150k etc, usually works for me. You can also try going to the tick you want to watch then go forward one more tick before pressing play.

        Not sure why it happens, but that's what I do.
