The F5

Post by FangUp » Mon Oct 24, 2011 2:02 pm

Due to the new version relese the F5ing was fixed.
What if a map truly needs a F5 for getting through thin walls without OO. (i have 1 map like that)
Can i input something so this could be an exeption for holding a piece of previous relese?
I really want that "bug" (:

Make the wall drivethrough then.

Ah! You want a shortcut using exploits that only known to power-users that know about. Evil.
There are ways to get through walls like that without F5 though.
Not sure if it still works with the latest version.
One way was to get sealed into the wall and then pass through by driving in the opposite direction to where you want to go.
The client thinks you're trying to drive through the wall and spits you out backwards.

Let me know which map and I'll try it for you.

If the map developer didn't want you to go through the wall.... don't go through the wall, or it's cheating.

I agree with you JeffM, but FangUp said it was for his own map that he wanted this exploit for, so in this case the map developer wants it.
I learned a lot about exploits while helping Zaphod with his Soccer Map. I couldn't believe how easy it was for pro players to circumvent the requirement for the Tiny flag in order to capture the flag.
Luckily though, there are ways to create the map that protect against them all.

If it is his own map then he can set drivethrough as blast said, that is an actual FEATURE.

Ok thanks, i will set drivethrough, but blast, you think i did not set it on the "walkthrough wall" for a reason?
Lol, the wall NEEDS to be solid but thanks again all 3.

If it needs to be solid, then it should be solid. If players should be able to drive through it, it should be drive through.

You do NOT know what i ment to do there are Milions of things you can only do by solid wall and F5 through, it is ment to be solid, but if some1 places the teamflag under a a small opening (no T or N or TH flags) you can only reach it with F5 in that case (one of milion cases)
