give a thought for people like me on 56k, we cant do a melee, then quickly fire off a ki attack because o the delay in weapon change and beam charge
(hint to developers: any chance of client-side weapon changes?)
oh and melee is doubly worse on 56k, cos of the latency, us 56k'ers need...
they should code so that when u not flying, powering up or charging a beam, u disappear off the scouter, this gives the game a stealth element
i like the way how an opponent has a massive blob on the radar when he has transformed
ok true, but it would have been a let down, for example, in the cell saga if gohan killed perfect cell by flying into him. his kamehameha was the way to go.
perhaps another reason why beams arent used too much: the HL engine was never made for these sized maps (due to the scale-down), so...
I reckon for the next beta/patch for ESF, the game should focus less on melee by either:
decreasing speed of the swoop, or
making a successful melee attack only push you against a wall/floor 20% of the time (for the other 80%, just have the opponent nudged back), or
having a recovery...
im interesting in signing up (Strife, [email protected]),
but where are you located?
Im in UK on dial-up connection, so obviously theres no point in me joining if you are american/australian (...cos of the lag)
hope these help synapz (although im suprised you can play Half-Life at all with a 4mb card)
1) Lower the resolution (settings ->Graphics -> Video mode). This is the biggest FPS helper
2) mp_decals 1 (in console), this effectively gets rid of splash damage (battle scars...
no mystick, im english and i wont be doing an all niter - i got a life :P
any idea if the off-peak/peak boundary is 8am? cos if it is i should be able to pop in a quick 2hour d/l before i set off for college
1) Wicked GL only works for Voodoo cards (and even then only up to voodoo3 i think)
2) Whats the point in making a post telling us how u have a P4 2GhZ PC with (and i quote) a "german innovatek water cooling system" (wtf?)? This doesnt help people like me with lower system specs
To the developers of ESF: when will u be quitting ESF? will you go on after beta 2?
(to those who dont remember, some months ago the ESF team announced that ESF was gonna be the last free-lance project they make, as they plan to do a commercial release. if i remember correctly.)
will i be able to run ESF smoothly? - as a guide, I can play the graphically intense Natural Selection at a (barely) acceptable frame rate. I dont have a problem running other mods (including the un-scaled alpha ESF)
goku with a white aura? hmm thats a strange/nice touch (undecided yet)
but i thought goku didnt use the white aura after the 1st few episodes (when they sorted everything out - i know that at some point, at least every character has used pretty much every aura in the visible spectrum!)
