1.5 prone deviation....
Posted in: Coding
Posted 2009-09-05 at 04:02 by Jaymz

After [R-CON]nedlands1 suggested to the team that the new 1.5 prone deviation may use the same value modifier it does in BF2142, I downloaded 1.5 to test it out.

Turns out that's exactly what they've done and that's good news for us PR chaps......[B]very[/B] good news. To simplify it for everyone, many of you probably know that BF2 has always had a deviation penalty for jumping. In PR, we made it more severe than it is in vBF2 (obviously). In the new 1.5 patch, Dice made the same "jumping deviation" modifier apply when you go prone.

The bottom line is, you can expect prone diving to be much less effective in 0.87.

For the release following 0.87, I'll be looking into completely eradicating the prone dive tactic.....

    Finally, it comes!

    Now, you just need to make prone diving completely useless, by like dropping them onto their faces, and you'll be pretty much equaling/surpassing Chuc in complete awesomeness. And you're already working on it, so you are semi-awesome. Or something.

    Those are some mighty fine new sunglasses you got there, Jaymz.

    Hey, wait a second...
