Re: Always kill?

in my case this relates to playing CTF and the fact it's a team effort. when i play as ST, i often use it for ambush tactics rather than just being able to sneak in to the enemy base undetected, and some of my ambush spots are carefully selected. for this reason, there are times where i have an easy...

jitter resolution for linux users

i'm running slackware 13.0, and before a hard drive crash, i was having marginal jitter issues. in other words, usually i had very little jitter, but occasionally it would get me bumped from a game. i noticed the jitter was worse when there were a lot of players, and a lot of shooting was going on a...

hot to get flags to group

i've noticed in Missile War, that in the green and red bases, and other places, that certain areas contain specific flags. i've downloaded the map to practice on offline, but the flags don't seem to be grouped as they are while playing online. how do i set up either the server or the map to follow t...

Re: newbie questions....

ok, another question.... in a CTF game, i often take the task of guarding the team flag. i come from a military background, and one never leaves an objective unguarded (i know this is a game, but this makes sense in a game of CTF, does it not?). so i guard the flag, and when i stop an intruder, i ge...

Re: Collaborator 2010

nice... just spent a couple of hours in single player mode to get the feel of it... got my tank electrocuted once and melted once. i didn't know you could have hazards like that.... certainly a very interesting map....

Re: newbie questions....

tnx for the info.... i think the practice will help, even if it is against bots... i've played a few bot games and learned a few ways to dodge incoming rounds and bracket my shots, but as far as a jumping game goes, it's too bad the bots don't jump... oh well practice is practice, and it does seem t...

newbie questions....

1> when using GM, why can't i get a lock on something except once in a while, even though an enemy is in plain view and close? 2> often when i do get a lock, it's on a friendly off to the side. 3> what is there to do about spawnkillers that just sit and fire blindly into a spawn site.... it's kinda ...
