SS Launchers: Insanity
Produced by Clan Hat Trick and RapidHalo.net

Video Links
The low and medium qualities basically look identical, and sound identical. The lower one is just so it could fit on Mythica.org.

Mythica - Video Link - Low
Rapidshare - Video Link - Medium
Rapidshare - Video Link - High

Even Newer Style
SS Launchers: Extravaganza brought a new style to side seat launching. It was cool and all, but not as cool as an even newer style we've started. We like to call it "Backwards Launching". I know, you probably think we go in reverse and side seat launch. But no, the reverse speed is too slow to get anywhere with a launch.

Basically, we get a short distance away from a wall, and the driver accelerates towards the wall. The side seat guy throws a grenade at the wall as the warthog accelerates. The warthog will hit the wall, and the grenade should be well placed under the warthog, and then the side seat guy should just shoot his rocket at the ground/wall. This causing the warthog to fly backwards. Depending on how you do it, you can use this for extreme distance, or extreme height.

We've also taken 'Backwards Launching' to an extreme. Basically, we use the grenade stacking technique, but with vehicles. It's very cool. You will see so in the video.

There is also a few regular side seat launches in here, so..the usual.

Screenshots
The Seventh Column

Clearing Foundation


Information
The whole 'Backwards Launching' technique was done on accident. Then we all were like.."holy crap" at the same time. So obviously we all had the same idea, to actually develop the style of launching that way. And we did.

That's pretty much all I have to say..for anything else concerining the video.

Special Thanks
I'd like to thank Shadowsniper449 for some of the sweet jumps he found and showing up to film at the last second. And Xetzu for being an awesome nade/rocket launcher and getting mad so much Razz. And all of the ss launchers in the video rule. Also to Lawlflip for basically accidentally launching backwards, which gave us the idea. Very Happy

Easily the best one yet. I saw about 4 of my Launchers in there too! Very Happy

Too bad I couldn't come in and help launch. I was at a Party with Hot Chicks the whole night while you n00bs were playing Halo. Just kidding. =P.

But seriously, awesome job Jester. I really think this is the best one yet. And you know how good I am at finding Launches (I found 8 new ones in one night once!). I already have at least 2 that I've thought of, backwards of course.

I still think you should've gone with my name for it: "Side Seat Launchers: Reverse"

Reverse > Insanity

Laughing

Oh well, awesome job, can't wait to make the next.

That was bootyliscious. I did a whole 1 launch too! w00tacular! Mine was the frag/rocket curve from the second part of the broken bridge to the rocket spawn. Great job SS launchers crew. I knew nade/rocket backwards launches would work, I just didn't know how. Good job for finding it (accidently)

Anyways, maybe I can display my 3 or 4 new ideas for nade launches in the next vid, SS Launchers Freakin Pimptacular on a Stickz0rz.

Special thanks to Jester for never ever inviting me. Maybe next time I can do at least 8 launches Smile

Great job guys,

Peace, Love, and Global Dictatorship

Haha. Thanks everyone. Xetzu you dirty pimp you.

The high quality video is now up, and it is damn better than the low quality. Higher resolution, and alot better looking. But also 27 mb, but definately worth it.

Thanks alot everyone.

Seriously though Jester, I need to show you/let you film my launches.

And you didn't put it in the launch where we bounced backwards back onto the bridge trying that one launch.

Yeah I took that out, only because there weren't any other richochet launches. Maybe in the next one, we can try and get more.

And yeah, well set a time for you to show me next.

Thanks everyone.

Pretty good. Nothing spectacular, but there were alot of impressive jumps. BTW: "Clearing Foundation", in this topic, should have been something better. It's easy to get a Hog up there, or over the level...

But nice work Smile

You guys are incredible. In every "SS Launchers" episode, you bring 'Hog launching to a new level. This backward stuff was very impressive--perfect execution. Nice job.

:O and i was in turret...>.> <.< thats not all i had to say ...
or is it
no its not.
i feel special that i actually got to be in this movie(first movie ever). even better im in over half the launches (turret guy mostly) but i did a few of the launches like the coag one and the one to the top of burial mounds.
anyway great job everybody that was included in this. id personally like to thank jester for editing and filming this, considering half of the jumps we tryed you just got pissed and quit... and then we did them again the next day. anyway great job everyone.

Wow! That is a great idea! Lately the glitching community has been slow at releasing new glitches, you changed that! I like the creativity of this and the launches themselves. Keep up the good work jester, it is nothing less than I would expect from you. Wink

We didn't say it was new. We said it was a new technique for the actual series we are making.

Nice job Jester. I like the backwards launch but on some of them it took to long. About 1 second after you hit the wall, the launch started. It would be better if you could do it with barely touching it. Smile
