How to Record a Demo
- A demo in Counter-Strike: Source is a .dem file that acts as a recording of what transpires in-game. This can be useful for gathering evidence against another player, such as a hacker.
To record a demo, open console and type the following command: record DemoName - replacing DemoName with a name that fits whatever the intention of the recording is.
For example, if I want to make a demo of a potential hacker, I'll just use the hackers name: record h4x0rb0b
This will create a file called h4x0rb0b.dem inside your /cstrike/ directory. This file can then be uploaded to the forums to share with others or attached to a SourceBans ban.
To stop a recording, simply type stop in console.
To watch a demo, open console and type play DemoName - again, replacing DemoName with the name of the .dem file you recorded.
This covers the very basics of recording demos in Counter-Strike: Source
