For some reason on some servers like Babel the size is perfect but on others I can't see the bullet at all! :rock: Can anyone tell me what's happening :?: :?:

Now it's the other way round :!: :!: :!: On Lasermania I can see bullets fine on radar but not on Babel :?: :?: :!: :!: :rock: :rock:
I really need help from someone to tell me what the hell is happening.

Are you using different radar sizes or zooming in more or less?

I always use the same radar size so that is ruled out isn't it? I use the one that shows the most.

Is the scale of the radar screen always the same, or does it adjust to the map dimensions?

In other words, when I am set on "3" for the largest radar picture, does that screen alwasy cover the same number of square feet of battleground, or is the scale smaller for large maps and bigger for small maps? I guess I've never looked, I'm always too busy getting the crap blasted outta me.

If it scales, that could explain the bullet hijinx.

its probally because he has lil dots on his radar for bullets, instead of lines.

Adjust your shot length and/or shot size with the ingame GUI options.

I think it's just the server, maybe the size of the map matters. I don't want to make them bigger because that'll make the problem that on some servers the bullets are HUGE. :?

I experimented making the radam about a 1/3 of the screen and was helpful on CTF no jumping. But I have a large screen (1600x1000) 20"cinema] and it still got in te way a bit. I scaled it back to 5"x5" with long leading lines and mid sized bullets and my dodging improved dramatically. I'm getting the reverse turn forward turn swerve down pretty good

I always hang around areas with lots of platforms of different heights, just for this reason.

At any given moment, I can jump up and be safe! This works especially well on Badgerking's where there's that very very low platform with pyramids on top.

In that situation, it is actually better to jump when you need to. I managed to get 100 points just by making sure I never landed on the same platform twice.
