    Feature of that particular map. It's up to the mapper whether or not you can shoot from inside jail.

    A problem with the "kill from jail"... If used on a sniper-arena server it should be possible to disable, with a mutator "no kill from jail".. u made that for UT99, can u make the same for 2K4 ?

    castle is great for shooting from jail!
    I'm glad to hear it's a feature, it adds to the fun (well, with normal weapons at leat, I see the point with sniper arena enabled).
    It's fun to have one of the "free" players drop a bunch of weapons for prisonners to use too, adds to the game, and it's still und3er control of the mapper.

    keep it, it roxxx, right head? (Nova^: hi m8! care for some fatally enlightning? ;)). Shooting from jail is a way to shoot the ******* that put your there in first place (although I suicided once in castle when the match started and took out half the other team ^^)

    the best way to deal with sniper mutators would be something (an addon perhaps) that forces startup weapons while in jail (shieldgun etc so you can still jailfight) and removes them and gives the sniper rifle back when you are freed.

    Sorry to say I completely disagree with you there mate. Dunno about you but i think the whole reason the you can shoot from jail is that it hepls gameplay and means people in jail can still be usefull. personally i find maps where people cant shoot out (like in Mooncraters and Ardien Dwy) really boring. Mooncraters is especially bad as there are no arena macths.

    hay he means as an addon so you dont HAVE to have it on... meaning that you donat HAVE to activate it... i love the idea

    Both a deafult weapon in jail add on and a cant kill other team in jail add on would be cool!

    I say a a deafult weapon in jail add on because with Instagib or arena(any weapon) you cant fight in jail(unlesss arena set to shield gun :p), you would have to make it so you cant drop weapons though cos you could throw a deafult weapon to people not in jail(that probably wouldn't work anyway)

    It is in your HUD settings under the JAILBREAK pulldown menu

    There are four to choose from.

    I agree mate - some maps do have a lack of arena matches - Do I see an arena in CastlBreak that never gets used?

    That would be great SpoonDog - many players have mentioned the arena matches on some maps not being implemented.

    CastleBreak is a personal fave. (minus the 'hole glitch' cheaters beware)

    Is this also true of Mooncraters too? - the call arena room exists and beeps, but no arena.

    Thanks
