The much-anticipated demos from the Johannesburg DGL Masters Finale are here for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
The demos, which are available here on dropbox, provide valuable insight for both the teams involved as well as for spectators as they give an inside look into how some of the best Counter-Strike players in the country perform. This is especially true for newcomers to the Esport who may not feel comfortable asking one of their in-game “heroes” for tips on how to play better.
In addition, while knowing your enemy is one step on the road to victory, being able to watch your own play in order to eliminate mistakes in future matches is even more key. These demos are key in providing a tool for teams to evaluate their strengths and weaknesses in order to produce better results and on the whole give players and viewers just what they really need: better quality Counter-Strike.
How to playback CS:GO Demo’s
Step 1: Download the demos to your device.
Step 2: Once you have the files altogether, you will need to locate your main Counter-Strike: Global Offensive folder. The default address is: C:\Program Files (x86)\steam\steamapps\common\Counter-Strike Global Offensive\csgo
Step 3: Select the necessary demo files and copy them directly into your csgo folder (be careful not to copy the demos into any of the other folders or sub-folders).
Step 4: Start Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
Step 5: When in-game, open the console by pressing the tilt key [`~] (make sure that the developer console is enabled in your game settings).
Step 6: Once your console is open you can type in the following command “playdemo” and it will give you a list. If you start typing Telkom DGL you will see a list of available demos. You can use your arrow keys to select the demo you wish to view.
Once you hit enter the demo will load the map and put you into the game. You are able to change players and view whoever you want to by using the left and right mouse buttons (r you can use your numbers to change to designated players.)
If you wish to see slow motion or the timeline you can get to the menu by pressing “Shift + F2”. When you are done you will want to close the menu by pressing it again.
