Hunting 2 People at Once

Post by RPG » Thu Feb 10, 2005 2:58 am

It's possible, I found out. All you have to do is hunt someone, press 's' to hide the scoreboard, hit the hunt button twice VERY fast, and another hunt arrow will show on the scoreboard while your old hunt is still kept. I don't know if this is a bug or a feature but it can really change someone's (the hunted's) game!

What? You don't have to un-hunt them. Here's a screenie of a multi-hunt. (I always hunt the top players in hope that I will surpass their score)

RPG find the map and I can see what I can do with the map. Unless you want to takle the job yourself. Btw, I have never even seen the point on using the hunt feature. Never used it and if I catch one of you little kids chasing me and you have it on. Your dead... :shock: :evil:

Wow, RPG.... according to that screenshot you play with the tank tracks displayed. I find it gets in the way of the game as you can't see down any more! It seems like a nice gizmo, but ultimately if it gets in the way of gameplay I can't use it (like lighting and shadow GUI options).

BIYA: the question is, how are you going to find the person hunting you, before they find you if you don't have Hunt on yourself :)

tracks? i noticed sometimes in hepcat that the enemy tank will disappear and all i can do to track them is there well...tracks. this glitch usually occurs when your on higher ground on one of the high platforms by the bases.
Take that, beyotch.

I meant your own, i.e. taking up the bottom sixth of that screenshot.

Hmmm... the hunt "feature" won't work. Do I have to be on rabbit hunt or something?

you probally have the current CVS code. It doesn't work in it. but the devs are fixing that.
Beware! I'm going to clone myself and spread those clones all over the world!

You're right. I use the latest CVS source. Buggy yet all the greatest features. :D Now they just need to do source betas. After all, they do it for Windows...

I know this is off topic, but is there anywhere I can get a source tarball built on a certain date? I want to get a certain build, but I don't know if Sourceforge has daily builds of CVS. :| That way I can get the source used for a Windows beta.

I think you can use cvs revisions for that.

Not sure how the releases are formatted, though.

Hunting ist dafür da, dass du jemanden auf dem Server markieren kannst. Derjenige blinkt dann im Radar farbig, sodass du genau weißt, wann er sich nähert. Du kannst z.B. wenn du schlecht bist, den besten Spieler auf dem Server markieren und dem dann aus dem Weg gehen.

Multi-Hunting machst du folgendermaßen: Drück "u", sodass die Player-LIste erscheint und vor einem Namen ein kleiner "Hunt ->" Hinweis erscheint. Navigier mit den Cursortasten durch die Spieler und drück bei dem, den du markieren willst, auf die linke Maustaste - somit hast du den ersten im Hunting-Modus. Nun drückst du "s", wodruch die Spieler-Liste ausgeblendet wird und dann zweimal "u". Nach diesem doppelten "u"-Aufruf erscheint wiederum die Spieler-Liste und zwar mit einem zweiten "Hunt ->"-Pfeil. Jetzt machst du genau das gleiche wie oben, um den zweiten zu markieren.
Der Dritte funktioniert dann auch genauso usw.

Ummm... wish I knew German. :) Can you translate or is this already posted? :roll:

I think date format is: yearMonthDay. I'll have to look, though. Thanks 0_0_0 for the suggestion! Maybe I can get a better build... :)
