    No Honor in INF Community

    Where is the dignity in the INF community?

    People no longer want to play with lamers who use known bugs to their advantage and then brag about how good they are or how high their score is or listen to others congratulate them. There is no honor, skill, or merit to this. I won't name names or bugs exploited, as it has all been done many many times before. I am just adding my two cents about why the INF community is falling off. With the release of so many new games and mods, (I have a sinking feeling that people are sneaking off to play TO) people are sneaking off to play where they don't have to deal with this type of lamness from people. To anyone with dignity, becoming a lamer to counter a lamer isn't an option. Example (and this is merely my opinion on one issue): I've been in matches where shotty users piss me off. So I grabbed MY shotty and went on a killing spree and was quickly able to dominate without any effort. Ok, so I showed them. Big deal! I felt like a b*tch because it wasn't a challenge to me, nor was it a use of actual skill. I felt like a high school bully running around the elementry school playground beating on the 1st graders. This is just MHO and my personal feeling on the subject.

    DISCLAIMER: I am not claiming that shot gun use in itself is a bug, but it does need some major tweaking to be realisticly balanced. (See the appropriate thread)

    I love what the INF team has done so far and are looking forward to what is still to come. However I will issue a warning: A combination of lamers roaming free on the servers and the release of many new games is threatening the stability of the INF community. Suggestion: I don't know how soon 2.86 is due out, but a release of some sort before that would do wonders for the community right now. Keep em interested. INF needs a PR guy. Someone could to desktop wall papers, INF art, a screen saver....etc....etc.

    As a beta tester I can tell you to wait for 2.86 even if it is due in 1 month. It is worth the wait.

    I havent played in a while, having the MC beta and other games to distract me. But I figured I'd play INF today and have some fun. Unfortunately, I re-learned why I drifted from INF so easily. Every server I connected to allowed proning, but would kick you if you leaned. Every one. I'm tired of emptying two to three clips at a proner and having people tell me: Proning is fine, but don't lean, it's bugged. In 2 rounds on one server, I encountered 6 proners! 6!!!

    Give me a break.

    PLEASE INF team, can we just get a quick fix for the lean and prone? This is KILLING the community.

    Geez, don't be soo impatient. I'd wait for months to get my hands on the finest INF ever. Better that, then to release what they have now with possible bugs. I want whatever they release next to be bug free. It's not leaving the community to play TO, as long as you come back. You can't tell me that all you play is just INF. TO isn't the devil, it's just filler for the real thing. It's the alcohol free beer, to the real beer. It's the fat chic, to the real hot chic. So drink your alcohol free beer, while porking a fat chic, until INF 2.86 comes out. It'll be OK.

    Hearing some of you people talk, you would think that proners are invincible.

    They are invincible when they are on high ground. Unless an you use an explosive (and I don't carry the m203 often... plain M16A2 is faster. I don't have any problem dealing with people who lie prone around corners. Months of dealing with this have got me used to aiming at the floor.

    The main problem people have with it is that it is a bug. People base their skill on this bug. When the bug is fixed, they will be screwed. But this hasn't happened yet, so people feel the need to adapt and than pone themselves. I disagree with this... just kill them. You get used to it after a while.

    Still annoying though. :(

    Hey jamian, nah non-alcoholic beer is pisswater :) fat chicks are gross (usually), but I'll play TO until the bugs are worked out.

    I took two out of three of your fillers... the other two are just crazy :D I prefer not to have any at all.

    I agree with Ghost on his points. Sometimes I do feel the need to get even with all the prone whores with M16A2/m203/acog comboes. So consequenbtly I go out and create a loadout with that weapon, and than kill off everyone. I rarely do it anymore, but sometimes it is just one of those days. My most common loadout is M16 plain, with a m203 if it is a reasonably big map. But cheats do piss me off more and more though. And if you use the aforementioned tactics to get even, and more, they will start to get pissed and call you names.

    INF team: I really think we need a patch. Just a minor one, one that gets rid of prone abuse. With that alot of problems will go away. IT doesn't even have to include anything else, just that one thing.

    No not a "quick fix" patch...

    ... but more of a small update. Probably about a megabyte, which just fixes the prone issue. THats it. Than if something is still wrong with it, the team will know for 2.86.

    Contact me for a free anti-proners course :D

    ICQ: 103123588

    It's *so* easy to kill proners, just try to shoot them where you see the shadow.

    The big trick: keep strafing, and a jump now and then :p

    I don't know where you guys play, but i'm having a hell of a nice time playing on gameblexx servers!!!

    If a patch for proning animation is put out then you will have a large group of people who want a patch for leaning. Or any other pet bug. Just wait people.

    I, myself, am not getting impatient with the INF team. I play INF and UT and that's about it. I may occasionally, once in a blue moon, play Starcraft. However, my point was directed toward the problem I see with the drift away from INF. I was just throwing out an idea to keep the attention of impatient people. You may say "be patient", but we all know that the majority of people don't think this way. I say that there should always be something new coming from the INF team in whatever shape or form it takes. This is just a basic and simple marketing principal. Whoever makes the most "noise" usually gets the most attention. Face it: we don't...can't even look forward to a new posting the official INF site except for every few weeks. Bring on board some people in the INF community who's responsibility it is to post INF related articles, interview, reviews....etc....etc. I know there are some creative people out there with some extra time on their hands.

    I don't play anymore because:
    1) The way the weapon gets less visible when you turn and more visible when you turn up is very annoying and makes it hard to aim.
    2) I have an AMD 800MHz, Voodoo 4, 128 RAM and Infiltration lags whenever I play. It is horrible. Doesn't happen with SF or TO.
    3) The VGUI is just a mess and it's hard to read.

    I'm disappointed in INF. It used to rule, but now since things have changed (like the stuff above), it is the worst mod for UT IMO and I'm sticking with the beautiful Strike Force or the fun deathmatchy Tactical Ops.

    I haven't been on in Ages

    Well, the last time I played INF, I was on Cape Cod (live in Binghamton, NY currently) and was messing around on a LAN game with Draco-1 and my nephew.

    My main issues with INF these days stem from the poor state of my computer. I'd like to play INF, not wait interminably to get into the game... any time the map switches I am guaranteed to have to sit out the first round, thanks to a slow comp, and some times I time out of entering a middle round! INF's a nice game, but I'd rather play than wait to play. Add in to that how fast-paced the game is currently (a pace I cannot maintain currently) and the preponderance of bug abusers (leaning AND proning are bugged, why disallow one and not the other?), I just cannot compete.

    Solutions are on the way however: I currently have a ASUS A7-M266 mobo w/ AMD Athlon 1.4 GHz, and 1x256mb CAS-2 DDR-RAM awaiting transplantation into a new case, powersupply, and lots of other goodies. I shall build my new rig (a first for me, wish me luck) and though I will need to stick with the 3dfx VooDoo 3 3000 16mb vid card and a Western Digital 5400 rpm 10 Gb harddrive for a while, that will not last for many more months. I should be at a viable new system by the middle of August, and I plan on returning to INF then.

    Not waiting through the first round of a new map will be nice. Being able to track where people are rather than where they were a few seconds ago will be nice. Being able to adopt something other than a sniper role will be nice. As this will likely occur after v.2.86 is ready to roll, all the better.

    I will return. Hopefully I will not be as easy a target as I've been for a while in v.2.85.5

    Just for another two cents, I no longer play this mod online because I'm not into watching.

    Every time I've seen this come up some people chime in with "get better, live longer" etc, etc. Whatever. Have fun.

    Fact is, everybody dies sometimes, and then you're no longer playing the game, you're watching.

    Sorry, but that's not for me. I've got only so much time to play games, and I'm going to spend it playing.

    Great mod for offline though. Well, good anyway. Make better bots and it'll be great. ( yeah, I've got bot tweaker )

    Only posted this in case somebody who makes this mod is interested in another average joes opinion. Not going to debate it.

    mmmm i don't play INF online mainly because i live in Oz and there are no oz servers... Thus im forced to play on US servers where i get 56k like pings.... at this latency it is extremely frustrating to play. When i press teh trigger i dont see the anims or sounds until XXX milliseconds later due to lag. I think netcode similar to CS (yes Counter strike! Dirty word!). CS's netcode is probably one of the biggest reasons it's so popular today. I admit i do play CS a lot more often than INF, even though INF is a much cooler game. Its just that its pretty horrible online. CS is extremely playable even on 56k, it has that lag compensation feature where you dont have to lead a target (compensating for lag) to hit a target. Maybe if a similar feature was implemented on INF it might be a little more popular
