Shots starting from left rather than in middle

Post by elem3nt »

Hello,

Recently my shots have been starting from the left of my tank and continuing in a diagonal to the right, rendering my mouse box useless. This is most noticeable with L, and it happens on all servers. Any idea what might be causing this?

the problem I am having - notice how my shot begins on my left and lands to the right of my aim.

You must delete your config file...

In windows the path is usually like this:

C:\Documents and Settings\Kyle\My Documents\My BZFlag Files\2.0\config.cfg

That worked! What did it reset that caused the chage?

@meteorite: no, it happened all the time. OT-you mentioned reinstating my cop status - it would be much appreciated.

Thanks!!

Yeah - I set that (by editing my shortcut) just to see what it would do - removed it and it didn't go away.

But it's all good now.

What's -view stereo used for anyway?

Seems like deleting the config file is becoming the standard bugfix, in the last few days.

You need to be wearing 3-D glasses, for view stereo.
Take a look at my Defender game mode concept.

Thinking is not an automatic process. A man can choose to think or to let his mind stagnate, or he can choose actively to turn against his intelligence, to evade his knowledge, to subvert his reason. If he refuses to think, he courts disaster: he cannot with impunity reject his means of perceiving reality.
