    I was out to buy the german PC Games-magazine to learn more about CS Source and getting a better quality of the video. Accidentaly I bought the June-edition, which was an E3-special. The included DVD had a better quality-version (almost DVD) of the E3 2004 video. I watched it and I even noticed some things I never saw before. Screenshots included.

    Look at glass.jpg. I never noticed the nice effect. And in picture.jpg I noticed a photo. Maybe someone else noticed this before.
    Also in the second strider-part I saw something new. There are two striders and after a while one of them starts running back to the street, where he continues his shooting at an unseeable target. The animation looked like a running spider, absolutely amazing to watch. At the moment I'm busy converting the DVD-movie to DivX 2000kbps.

    [EDIT]
    Sound is a bit better too. I never hearded women scream in the strider-part :eek:

    Yeah, I'm really waiting for the binks but this could be great, I want to see the lipsync on the guys at the trainstation and the apartments coz the Quicktime is too poor quality.

    The lipsynch on Father Gregory looked very good too. I'll let you know how big the file will be after the ripping is done.

    I dunno, it's still a compressed size. There are parts in the crane scene that lead me to believe that AA was off or on a low setting.

    this video will be cool, but i hate having to keep the uncompressed version of the gamespy video on my machine b/c its too big to burn to cd. this one will cause the same problem. my compressed e3 2k4 video always freezes when i try to run it from its cd.

    This just poses a question to me... What the hell is taking so long in getting the binks out?

    It's like they're aiming to gradually increment the video quality by a couple of pixels a week until the game comes out ^^

    ... and after we all spend 12 hours downloading this movie from the same server at 3kb/s, you just know they will release the binks.

    I'm almost positive that is a person in the trashcan...I don't know what else it could be. maybe it is just a civilian who doesn't want to go where the combine want him, so he's hiding in there. Very strange. We probably wont know until the game comes out. But maybe if it is, we can knock over the trash can and expose him and get him in trouble, LOL.

    If it IS an easter egg, I doubt it will be in the final game.

    I watched it and I think I know which bin you mean. There's absolutely nothing in it. Just a bit of reflection.

    I saw that too. You see the person in the beginning too and he/she looked a bit like Alyx to me.
