Hey, it's me again, and here is my next stuff for you: CSDemoArchiver

Record demos from Counter-Strike, automatically compress and save it to a previously selected folder. Also you can mark any special events (aces, wallbangs etc.).

Usage instructions
First of all open config.lua with your favourite text editor, and configure it for your system.
Start with CSDemoArchiver.exe, and have fun!
You can mark an event using the "echo CSDemoArchiverMARK" in-game command, or, if you want to add some message use the "echo CSDemoArchiverMARK_{MESSAGE}" command. Sadly the game is a bit buggy, so you cant use space in your {MESSAGE} field, for example: "CSDemoArchiverMARK_Your.message.without.spaces!". You can bind it to a key, or add to your commandmenu if you don't like to type.
If you done, just press any key at the console window to close it.

Usage example

Console window:

20120401181914-nomorerandomnames.txt in the zip file contains:
00:02 CT 11:0 T
00:12 CT 12:0 T CTs.just.win.a.round!

I've released a quite similar tool for the hungarian scene couple of years ago called CSDemoSaver, changed it a bit (open source, scriptable) renamed and here it is. It's fully customizable if you know some Lua/C++.

Is it safe to use at events?
It should be safe, since it does not modify any game related data, only reads game directory path and CT/T team scores, but some poorly written anti-cheat software might alert if you use it. I take no responsibility for any damage.

How does it work exactly?
Short answer: parsing debug messages.
Longer one: It's open source, check yourself :)

Binary executable:
pene.hu/zokny/download.php?id=1 9

Source code (requires Lua):
pene.hu/zokny/download.php?id=2 0

If you find any bug, feel free to write a PM or comment.

Seems interesting, what about VAC\EAC?
2012-04-01 18:36:25
VAC proof, not sure about EAC/Wire, but it should be safe with those too.

Good job.

Just fixed two minor bugs:
- CT and T scores were swapped
- typo fix at the main lua file
Version number unchanged, just download again.

Good job, keep up.

I didn't get it. :S
A more detailed info would help me, more like a video. :)
Just a suggestion, I'll figure it out though after sometime.

As you can see on the pictures, when you start to record a demo, CSDemoArchiver recognizes it and when you finished recording the program renames your demo and compresses it to a specified folder. Therefore using this tool you don't have to worry about overwriting your previous demo using the same name. Additionally you can mark events for later usage (video editing purpose).

Seriously that helped. :)
