Title: Suggestions for OpenArena 3
Post by: beastlycoward on February 25, 2019, 09:56:26 am
1) Cylindrical hitboxes
2) Autojump - continue jumping by holding down jump instead of having to click jump for every jump repeatedly

Any thoughts?

Maybe cvar/dmflags controlled and disabled by default? Especially the jump one seems adapt for a mod...

Ps: the forum has got an "idea pit" section dedicated to this kind of threads. Remember for next time. :-)

Idk, holding the jump button to jump would just make strafe jumping too easy

Bunny hopping, to me, is something to be discouraged not encouraged.

Funny how that is always said by people without the skill to strafe jump.

The way of navigating by jumping is a skill on any Quake 3 based engine. It is part of the learning curve on those games. If you manage to control your movement, you'll never lose that again. It often is the very same on Quake 3 forks.

You can run an OA 0.8.8 server with /dmflags 128 for disabling accelerated jumping.

Disables strafe jumping and thus limits you to g_speed for plain level moves effectively. It is important to know that on Accelerator Pads you shall not press forward or you slow down and fall down. Movement and stopping gets non-slippy. Side-effect is an increased mouse sensitivity (you can try /sensitivity lowered by 1/5).
Makes many maps impossible to be played as they were meant .

Exactly! Like, COD kids always say that. In fact I've seen addons for Source games that disable bunnyhopping, when hardly such a thing exists in any of them!  :no:
