3 to 1 odds: I win either way.
9th April 2008
[color=black]Been playing online for about 4 months now and for an old fart I can hold my own. I think it is lots of fun but at my age I do have problems keeping up with some of the young dudes in the games. Don't worry your time will come! LOL Of course my eyes tire quickly and so does the right elbow, nice tendon pain in there.[/color]
[color=black]I do get frustrated with the game however. At times when landing on the beach the enemy on the top of the flag bunker kills me with two or three rounds (life @ 100), when I am returning heavy fire it seems to have no effect on the enemy.[/color]
[color=black]I have my monitor up bright and the games options set to high brightness. I am not Ray Charles (no offense Ray) but can the enemy see me better than I see him- or what? From the beech that guy is about the side of a dot up on the top of the bunker. Maybe I need a 53" CRT?[/color]
[color=black]How is it that I get whacked with 9mm from that great a distance with three rounds? I also notice that these hits are louder than other hits usually are. [/color]
[color=black]I have a suspicion of what the answer might be, but if there are any suggestions on how to improve this situation I would appreciate it. Also I have read I can turn my sights yellow, but I cannot locate the post any longer. How can I change the crosshairs to yellow?[/color] [color=black]Thanks for listening.[/color] [color=black]sparx[/color]
Some "better" players know how to change their configs that hold all the info about each settings ingame. Without any changes the game is very dark (in my case) and then I will not be able to shoot earlier then what I am doing now.
It is also easier to shot a person down if he is standing higher. Like on the forward bunker on beach. If you then shoot at a persons head you will do about 50 damage per bullit. So thats why you can kill a person in 2 to 4 shots with a SMG. A weapon like the sniper does 160 damage with a shot in the head.
If you want some of those settings check out this tread where I explain how you can get your game brighter and stay under most punkbuster limits:
And just a comment on the sniper, if you are unfamiliar with it, be sure to zoom in with it before you fire! I'd remapped that key off of my keyboard configuration so it took me for ever to mast that thing. Even now I think I am better with it with out the scope just cause i had to learn it that way!
Yep once again the captain is right..Try that zoom out for size and stuff a bullet you up their you know where
