    Hi!

    I am making a video, and I want to use faceposer animations (choreography) in it. I made a map, for the video, but I can't place my choreography in it. I tried to test the map, and then i wrote to the console:

    bot -name sniper -team red -class Sniper

    and after that:

    tf_testvcd "scenes/sniper.vcd"

    but nothing happened.

    The first problem is that sometimes it doesn't spawn the bot.
    The other is that once it spawned, then the choreography didn't work.

    I tried everything, I looked for tutorials, but I didn't find anything, so I wrote it here.

    Thanks,
    Pocok

    Were you looking at him?

    There is a tutorial for this by Katana.

    ok, i have a new problem, now with bots. so, i was about to making a bot:
    sv_cheats 1
    bot -name csipa -team red -class sniper

    Then it wrote this:
    Failed to create //or something like that, it doesnt matter.

    Make sure the syntax is correct. In the video, he used the "-name" as the last command. This shouldn't be causing a problem, but it is Valve.

    lol :)

    anyway, i solved the problem. the problem was that i joined red team, and then made a red bot. the bot was created in spectator. so it was because of the balance, so when i went to the blu team, and created it, it was okay. then i could play the choreography by pointing at the bot.

    the new problem is: how can I bind it? I tried this way in the CFG:
    bind "6" "tf_testvcd "scenes/sniper_video.vcd"", but it didnt work.

    use
    bind "6" "tf_testvcd scenes/sniper_video.vcd"

    the quotes around scenes/sniper_video.vcd are not needed.
