    Bugs and QoL changes across the servers

    Well I can definitely help out with videos and stuff. I feel like I'm a good enough player for the gameplay to be interesting, and I also have a more than good enough computer to be able to Stream and whatnot. If it's something that Leiizko, Aquiz, and Ninja are willing to actually push and make an effort with then I'm down for helping out with the stuff I can. I'd like to see more people on too, as for 3/4 of the time I am awake (I am nocturnal more or less) no one is on the server.

    Bugs and QoL changes across the servers

    Is there no way to fix it? It really hinders the game as it means I have to get a 9 killstreak in order to get rid of it, which is difficult when there are lots of good players online. Could you maybe let all hardpoints be dropable, just like the 9 kill hardpoint? It's not ideal, and it would be better for a workaround to be found so that it doesn't happen, as Artillery can rack up a LOT of kills in crowded games, but it's better than not being able to get hardpoints for the rest of the game. Resource hog? Don't get me wrong I've never run a server for a game before in my life, but surely it's just a case of changing a few names and adding a few if statements? It would be a few bytes for each map name at most, and an extra table in a database? As for resource hog, perhaps closing some of the servers down might help? I never see anyone in Obscurity, Freeze Tag, or Deathrun. Surely having them running for no one 24/7 is more of a resource hog than converting map names. Not to mention the cost of having those servers. Awesome! Best change for a while. This is good, but would it be possible to get a specific one for instructions on how to use $pbss? I bet a lot of people have no idea what it does, not to mention it would bring more traffic to the site when people come to check if the person is actually hacking. And that's a shame about RoZo. It's a good gamemode but it's so horribly unbalanced and buggy. A couple more things I just thought of: Removing hackers/inactive players from the hiscores. Hackers 100% need to be removed. Not sure if there is a viable way to automate this though or whether it just has to be done manually each time. It might also be worth having the hiscores get wiped every month so that it keeps them fresh and gives players a chance to get on the board. One of my hiscores that is on Overgrown has been up there for months, and probably won't be broken any time soon as I got it before the killstreak chance (the one where helicopters gave kills towards hardpoints). I think wiping them periodically would be good and keep the server fresh. Command to remove bobbing animation while running? I played on a server a few days ago that had bobbing removed, and it felt so smooth and nice to play on. Possibility of new weapons added, such as the ones from MW2 or something? I've been using a lot of the guns in RoZo and they'd be fantastic to have on the other servers.
  3. Decided to make a forum post about various changes/bugs I've found whilst playing on the server. Everyone else can feel free to comment on this thread to let me know of bugs and I'll edit them in to this main post. I've already spoke to Leiizko about some of these things, but I figured I'd put them on a publicly viewable list so that people can let me know of thoughts, bugs, and suggestions that I might not have thought of or wrote down. I'll add to this list as I think of more things, or if people comment more things. Hardcore TDM: Bugs: - Artillery bug. Sometimes it doesn't let you use Artillery, and just always says "Artillery is unavailable". Not sure how to replicate this. Seems pretty random. QoL changes: - When map voting appears at the end of the game, map names are their development names, such as "cargo ship", "carantan", "convoy", and so on. Map names should be what they are seen as in-game to avoid confusion. - (Added!) Edit class at the beginning/end of the game so that you don't have to leave/rejoin the server constantly. - (Added!) Scheduled announcements on the server to let people know what commands they can use. This would be fantastic for $pbss. - Higher hardpoints stacking on top of lower ones. - Remove hackers from hiscores. Also wipe hiscores periodically to keep them fresh. - (Bobbing removed entirely!) Command to remove bobbing animation whilst running. RoZo: Not possible to change unfortunately. We don't have access to the source code for it and development on the mod stopped long ago.

    I actually made a post about this on the private Admin section of the forum as half of the hackers I encounter leave the game due to their ban protection. Unfortunately there isn't really anything we can do about that because unless we have proof we can't ban. Look on the positive side though, when their hacks make them leave the game, they don't come back as they know their cover is blown, which is almost as good as a ban.

    How do I animation cancel then so that I can shoot immediately after sprinting? I just tried setting it up but couldn't get it working.

    That isn't what he is doing though. He is literally sprinting, and then instantly shooting. Usually there is that cooldown period where you cannot shoot, it is like 0.5-1 seconds long, but with whatever binds he is using he is instantly shooting. This means he can sprint around corners and have an insane advantage because he can instantly shoot, as if he wasn't actually sprinting.

    The AK has sideways recoil too. He had no sideways recoil in the demo. The M14 also has a hell of a lot more recoil and kick to it than displayed in the demo. Also, good to know that binds are completely fine to use. I'm just gonna go get a bunch of binds set up now that allow me to shoot when I'm sprinting. The whole "anyone can do it so it is fine" argument is kind of poor imo. If I remember correctly, scroll shooting is against the rules. Are you telling me that not everyone can scroll shoot? Are you telling me that not everyone can get hacks? I'm sure you see the flaw in this reasoning now...

    Did you not notice how when he shot his AK, it had almost no recoil? What about the times he rapid fired his M14 and it had almost no recoil? You can't control the recoil in cod4 that well as the recoil is random each time, so you can't control it the same way you can in games like CSGO. Also, how on Earth is he strafe jumping perfectly every single time? He even strafe jumps sideways whilst aiming down sights and shooting at someone. You're telling me he's doing that legit without the use of a macro or mod? So many keystrokes he has to do and he never puts a finger wrong. Way too unbelievable. I even tried asking him how he jumps like that and he straight up ignores me, because he knows there is no legitimate answer to it.

    I've never seen anyone slide like that before, not that consistently. I've seen one or two of the top player slide and turn in mid air like that once or twice before, but not like that. The way he launches himself, the way he has no recoil, etc, and the thing you pick up on is the fact that he fires fast lol? I would say his shooting is possibly the only legit thing about him.

    Just added new link. There is something wrong with the website and uploading files. The file I select in the file browser is .dm_1, but when it appears in my post, it changes.

    Players' name: Deins Players' PlayerID: UNKNOWN Server: Hardcore High XP Please describe what happened: Look at the way he moves. Every single time he jumps it is a perfect strafe jump. He absolutely launches hmiself forward at unbelievable speeds every single time. Also look out for his lack of recoil. He empties an entire round of M14 ammo in to the helicopter and his red dot hardly moves. His AK also has no recoil, even though it usually has quite a lot. His AK has no sideways recoil, and he perfectly controls the recoil every single time, despite that being impossible as CoD4 recoil is random and volatile. I will have to get his PID next time I see him in game (probably tomorrow). Proof: Re-uploaded proof -
  12. I've just played a few games with the shop system and I really don't like it so far. It makes it feel less rewarding when you go on a large killstreaks, and also helps out the bad players way too much. Oh you just got a helicopter? Nah too bad, that player at the bottom of the scoreboard that is 12-45 that has been saving all his points all game just destroyed it with Fighter Support. It's a step in the right direction as far as making Fighter Support more useful, but it makes the game so much less rewarding if you're a skilled player. There is no penalty for dying either. Maybe if you lost money when you died (like $30), it would be a bit better, because then even the bad players wouldn't be able to insta-counter the stuff that you buy, as they wouldn't have much money unless they managed to string a couple of kills together. Saying that, I still much prefer killstreaks. Bad players benefit too much from it, and it lessens the impact that good players have on the game. Whilst I get the whole "balancing the playing field" thing it has, it is not a great idea to tell the good players that being good isn't nearly as much of an advantage as it was anymore. It feels like playing a game of football and winning, but the losing team still gets points because they scored a goal. It's just way too much of a change and not what I had in mind at all when I made this post.
  13. So over the last couple of days, I have seen people getting the full range of killcount rewards - myself included. I want to outline my reasons as to why I think they are unbelievably unbalanced and broken. The killstreaks and their issues: UAV Jammer - Completely fine. Airstrike - Somewhat fine, but really inconsistent. There have been times that I have walked right through an enemy airstrike and not been touched, but other times when I am hiding underground and died instantly. Artillery - Same as above, but slightly worse as the explosion radius seems larger. Predator missile - Mostly fine, but there is a massive red "KILL" sign above everyones head, meaning you cannot hide from it, even with UAV Jammer. Shoot Down Heli - Not sure what it is called, but it is the thing at 12 killstreak that can shoot down enemy choppers. This is the only single counter in the game to the rest of the killstreaks from here on out. Helicopter - Mostly fine. The only issue is that it counts towards your killcount. This means that in larger games, once you call it in, you can just sit in a corner hiding, and let the helicopter do the work for you. This is a massive problem because as soon as you get the helicopter, it is unbelievably easy to just go straight to a nuke. Drone Strike - Same issues as Predator Missile, except multiple times over because you get multiple predator missiles to shoot. AC130 - Same as above. You cannot escape the blasts because the blast radius is huge, meaning even if you hide underground our deep inside a building, you will still die. There is also the huge red "KILL" sign above everyones head, meaning there is 0 counter to this killstreak. Piloted Heli - One of the worst. It lasts for what seems like forever. It also has an unbelievably high healthbar. An entire team has to suicide many times over just to shoot it down. The piloted heli can also go through buildings and the ground, meaning it cannot be shot down. It also does not take damage when it collides with things. Nuke - Completely fine. The only grudge I have against it is the radiation afterwards. Is it not enough to make the entire game BLIND, but you also die a few more times due to unavoidable radiation? It's just adding insult to injury. My solutions for the above issues: UAV Jammer - N/A Airstrike - Balance out the explosions. I shouldn't die if I am underground, and I should die if I am outside walking through it. Artillery - Same as above, except artillery should be slightly more powerful than airstrike. However, I still should not die if I am underground on maps like Backlot, Pipeline, and whatever other maps there are that have underground sections. Predator missile - There should be massive "KILL" signs for people that have UAV Jammer on. Again, it needs counter play. Shoot Down Heli - Seems completely pointless to have this so high. If you are on a 12 killstreak, chances are that the enemy team are nowhere close to getting a 15 killstreak for the helicopter. It either needs to be replaced with something more useful, like an EMP that lasts for a minute or so, which would kill all electronics on the map (UAV, predator strike, airstrike, literally everything apart from players, just like it does in MW2 onwards). Another solution is to lower the killstreak needed to acquire this "shoot down heli" perk. If your team is getting terrorised by all of the helicopter killstreaks, there is no way you are getting to 12 kills to be able to counter them. It could also just be removed outright, but I think the EMP is a much better solution. Helicopter - This should just not add to killstreak. None of the other killstreak rewards count towards your killcount, so why does the helicopter? Another solution is to make it so that the helicopter cannot target people with UAV Jammer, just like in later MW2 games. Both solutions should be combined in to one, so that the heli does not count towards your killcount, and it also cannot see people with UAV Jammer. Drone Strike - Should not have a massive "KILL" sign above your head if you have UAV Jammer. Everything else is fine really, it's just the severe lack of counterplay to it. AC130 - Same as above. Piloted Heli - Lasts WAY too long, and has WAY too much HP. Lasting so long is not too much of an issue, my main gripe with it is the fact that I could stand there and empty 10 mags of RPD ammo in to it, and it would be fine. It should also take damage if it hits in to buildings and other solid objects. Nuke - Radiation is just overkill. Everyone already died once, why do they have to die 2-3 times more, be blind, and have no chance of escape. It's just unnecessary, especially when there are no killstreaks after it. It could also be that the Nuke just ends the game like it did in MW2, so that the user of the nuke wins the game for their team.
  14. When I get home from lectures I will go through the demo so I can find the clip and record it and then upload it to the player reports. I couldn't shoot him no matter what. I tried shooting all around him but nothing happened. You'll see in the video I upload later.
  15. It is super bugged out right now. SancheJloo just abused the hell out of it and camped on it all game, and went like 41-1 because no one could hit him. Idk how the glitch works, but @Biohazzard said it was a known glitch. I have the demo of him abusing it, but the demo is like 3 games long (as I record all of my games now to prove innocence if needed). If you can skip forward through games quickly, then I will upload it, but if not, then I will have to sit through like 35 odd minutes of gameplay to get to it so that it can be recorded. Either way, the glitch makes people invincible. It either needs to be fixed, or that turret needs to just be removed.
