A few weapons that need addressing.



  • @Shard:

    Well, i agree that archers are a bit overpowered.
    Personally, i don’t have a problem with it, since i don’t play on public servers.

    You lucky child…



  • @Terminally:

    I tried flail last night and thought it was just the server that was wonky, might actually be like you said… dem flail tracers man, Light flail doesn’t seem to be affected by it as much as heavy flail though imo.

    It’s really easy to test. aoc_drawtracer 1 in console, enter third person view, and hit lmb once, recover, hit lmb again. Compare the two tracers. They are different every time, in length, horizontal, and vertical axes. What’s even worse is that in first person view, the tracers sometimes deviate away from the actual swing animation, or are too ambiguous to tell where the tracer actually drew when compared to the animation. This gives the effect that the flail sometimes swings through people and not hitting them at all.

    If you guys want I’ll record and put up a video showing this deviation.

    Well that explains a lot. Just wondered if I was going insane or if my flail was acting weird… :s
    Please do so! :)



  • EDIT: Major caveat! In singleplayer mode the flail behaves normally. In multiplayer it is completely buggered! Uploading video.

    This is very common in Chivalry, by the way - you should always try to test things on a server. The game tends to behave very different locally.



  • This is very common in Chivalry, by the way

    Please elaborate.



  • @Flippy:

    Please elaborate.

    It’s pretty common for bugs to only be reproducible on a server.

    It only really surprised me because I thought that the tracers were randomly deviating by design (to make the flail “unpredictable”). With respect to the fact that they never used to do this previous to the animation tweaks / camera patch. But because on singleplayer it does not do this, I now believe this is a bug and not intentional design.

    Does this mean when you guys release lan, we’ll essentially be playing ‘real chiv’?

    I’m not sure what you mean by ‘you guys’, since I no longer work for Torn Banner - but obviously real chiv is promod. :pride:

    Don’t you know a forum moderators job on any forum is to prevent GoT spoilers?

    Thanks a lot for the videos! :)

    But yeah I think that makes the whole unpredictable-ness of the flail. The fact that the tracers always change. xD
    It’s still a bad weapon though. :s Which is sad because I really like it but it doesn’t like me back. :(
