Sorry hadn't seen the discussion. I'll try to cover most points:
That's the point I'm trying to make since the beginning. Specing someone sniping smoothers the recoil for the spec - a lot. If you had specced me while I was recording the video you would have seen the same usual thing. I'm dealing with dizzy recoil while you can't see it as a spec. But it may have been a little dizzier due to the recording itself: I felt it was a little harder to play and snipe because of the recording, it took a little load on my computer so it was difficult to have a clean gameplay.
I exec my config everytime I join the server then when I select sniper, medic, rifle. I have a config for each class, nothing unusual. I don't think it is possible to run anyting before the game starts. The game only execs a couple of cfg by itself, including autoexec.cfg
This one made me laugh fa.cfg contains the following line: connect 22.214.171.124:27960
It simply makes it easier for me to join a server instead of going on trackbase, copy pasting the ip then typing /connect [ip]
Can't be bothered to rewatch, I sometimes have phantom shots due to quick firing and mouse holding. A sign of wallhack means nothing, it's not the point here and you'd find 50 instances in a map in which you'd see I don't use a wh.
Maybe you don't have at least 3000 hours in this game as a sniper. And maybe you don't have any optimized cfg setting that would help you lower your recoil (not remove it, as @daredevil said, the only command that would make a no recoil script work is the +lookdown command (+lookup works, but it would be dumb to use it for sniping :D) and the +lookdown command is obsolete in ET as a whole since 2004 or so.
That's why I still have recoil to handle. If I don't pull down my mouse (do it 0.1 sec before firing, it will help), the recoil goes up as usual. And again, what you see as a spectator does not translate into what I have to deal with in term of recoil and shakiness.
No, Fins players didn't have access to such scripts as I said. They were beasts. KRP Vanhaomena and Serimestari (aka panker) were absolutely exceptional with the sniper, I played them both, especially Vanhaomena with which I discussed a lot in his famous sniper fragmovie on Youtube, I was calling him a script user at the time, he explained to me that it wasn't the case (I think you can still find our discussions in the YT comments lol), then I started digging into what ET configs could bring me in term on lowering recoil and I found a clever way of using settings available for everyone to use. I won't share it here but I shared it with FA admins and they said it was ok since everyone can use these settings to their advantage.
I simply think noone bothers to dig into this for sniping because people don't really care about this weapon. They don't play it besides the usual moments in maps that allow it. So they don't really know about this weapon, don't know everything that can be accomplished with it, every trick it allows. That's why not a lot of people can replicate what they see when they spectate me. Sniping requires a lot of skills, a variety of techniques that requires a really long time to master. As I said, it took me hundred of hours playing the best ET snipers on sniper servers (on sniper maps - you have no idea how good we were when ET was at its peak) to master every sniping techniques and thousand of hours to experiment, play with it and reach a high level.
Anyway I hope you'll take into account what I tried to explain the best I could, feel free to reply, I don't mind discussing it again. I kind of like talking about sniping
