Thanks novationx :thumbsup:

Some people really don't listen and don't understand. :roll:

caV is now banned for 7 days, and his latest post after novationx answer was deleted because it was even more insulting and derailing far beyond off-topic.
I take it on my shoulders, because I have enough of such -sorry- idiots who claim they know everything better and always start insulting everyone who dare to speak against them. This is absolutely not what we want to see here.

His post above can stay as warning to others not to behave like him.

To come back to topic =P:

As i wrote in another threat I'm thinking about if making the hitbox visible with a glow or something would make missing or hitting more understandable and rewarding.

The second thing is that I think as simpler the hitbox gets the less luck is involved when hitting someone. I would suggest an ovoid shape. What do you think?

Its gonna look weird man :)
The hitboxes are squares. U really wanna see squares around ur enemies?

And even then... because of the delay between our 2clients & the server its never 100% accurate & people will still complain. Its not a bad suggestion, but its not optimal either.

Just my 2 eurocents.
The neverending waiting game has to stop.

It's no solution for the ping between player and server only a bridge between animated skin and hitbox.

Imagine a gamemode where only headshots count with the hittbocks invisible.
