[color=blue]here is a thought although i am not too sure if it is possible, but i think would help out in the game alot.[/color] what i am thinking about is if there was a way that one could make it to where the players on the server used the same graphic settings as the server used. there is the pure server that makes people use the same files as the server. and there is punk buster that helps a great deal in removing and keeping out the more dishonest of players. how ever what about the graphic settings? maybe someone could put something in one of the many mods to the game out there like RoCmod (which is the mod i use) or into osp, or something like that, that would force people to use the same graphic settings as the server if the server wished them to do so. why would that be a good idea ya ask??? well, i will tell you. in alot of maps it a run and shoot and kill plan. and the detail of the textures and brushes may not be all that important. How ever when ya fighting in a sniper map, finding a good bush to hide in or something similar is crucial in ya tatics. if you have ya setting set up to a average setting then the bush that you are in will provide a good cover. but now if another player has his graphical settings lower, then that bush ya hiding in is not as full as it appears to you. or like a tree that is a good hiding object and cover, will onlt be a twig to him. i relize that there are alot of players out there that do not have that strong of a computer, for i am one of them. i jsut have a lil ol' e-machine with a celeron processor at 633 mhz. i do have a pretty good video card on my system which helps out alot in performance of the game. but even i do not have my graphic setting set at rock bottom. i got them set about in the middle. yeah sure having a lower graphic setting may help the speed of the game. and having it set too high can cause lag problems. but still. as a server, i would like to be able to run my game at the setting i want to run them at. i would like to see decent graphics in the game play. i really do not see why i should have to lower my setting to make the playing field even. ya really can't kick someone because their graphic setting are set lower then yours. that would just not be right. however if their setting are lower they are seeing right through the bushes and these bushes was put there for cover. i myself do not like having my setting set so far down that the bushes look like they are found in a dried up desert. to me the bushes and such just add more of a challenge to the game. however not everyone thinks the way i do. but anyhows back to the question at hand ands idea. is there a way or could there be a way to make the players on a server use the same graphical setting as the server? and does anyone else think this would be a good idea???

What happens when the server is using the state of the art PC and 256+ grafic card? Players without those specs will not be able to play. And turn it round the other way players with good grafic cards playing with 16bit colors?? Ummm don't think so ??

that'S true, it would end up as a prejudice to either highend or lowend machine owners.

if the bushes are made of brushes it would make no difference, only if it is a model - if that is your concern, learn to hide where the geometry will be the same and dont try to hide behind models. You point is one every game has had to deal with - and thats it, you just have to deal with it.
