I did say some posts ago that there would soon be an official LandWarrior server, hosted by my friend Ensayia. We're still taking map suggestions.

Whoa! This is the best mod ever!!! It was worth the wait with my crappy dial-up. You made Soldat better than ever! Looking forward to your newest release. Thanks.

Get off Antialiasing option. One way and common is work.
This sounds more like a Soldat problem than a problem from my mod. Does regular Soldat run right? Do you have an old video card? Have you tried setting Soldat to use compatability mode? Are you running Windows Vista, or Linux?
Turning of antialiasing didn't work.  Soldat runs fine without the mod, and I'm running Windows XP.

What about your video card? Is it stupidly old? Is it an ATI? Have you bothered testing my mod on Soldat with various backbuffer and/or troubleshooting options enabled?

My video card is not old.  Does your mod have different hardware reqs than unmodded Soldat?  ???  What setup settings do you use?

It's [modname]/Interface-gfx/sight.bmp (or .png). It happens to be the only file that I know of in that directory which can be changed without needing to overwrite the file in Soldat/Interface-gfx.

Thnx :D

As far as I know, it's impossible for a mod to make Soldat require different specs, unless you have an ancient card which might not like alpha-shading, but then again, default Soldat uses alpha-shaded bullets.

From my soldat.ini

And I still can't think of anything to replace the bomb... Nobody has any ideas?

For a chainsaw replacement, how 'bout a sawed-off shotgun? It would fire 4 or 5 shotgun blasts rapidly at a low speed and the chainsaw-fire image could be the muzzle flash. I haven't tried it, but in theory it should work.
Or, just make some kind of heavy melee weapon. Some kind of tazer, maybe?

As for a taser, what would it do? Aside from sounds and graphics, how could it be so different from the knife? I'd seriously consider it if I could make the ragdolls of tasered soldaten dance around (like the super gravity gun of HL2 does to victims), but I can't.

The shotgun idea, though... Sounds /much/ better than the bomb to me. Anyone second it?

EDIT) If we're going with the sawn-off shotgun (or "entry shotgun", this mod being a military one  ;) ), I'd use one of these:


Generic sawn-off double-barrel


Ithaca 37 'Stakeout'


Remington 870MCS


Vote for which you like better. Or for another one. Or for keeping the bomb. Or for other suggestions, whatever. The only downside of a shotgun is that Soldat will force it to be automatic, rather than semi-auto, but I'd make the refire rate be appropriate. This wouldn't pose any problem for a double-barrel, though, since I'm tricky, only a slight problem for the single-barrel with a magazine shotguns.

Just thought I'd mention: This is my #1 mod. Absolutely great job, Taehl.

A recommendation: The Glock sounds like a pop gun. Could you give it a little more authority? :D

I'd vote for the bomb. Sawed off, in my view, just doesn't work right because of how the chainsaw has a kill-entity thing, like the M2. The only way to increase the range past melee before the bullets disappear is to increase the speed, which, with shotguns, automatically increases throwback recoil...

Thanks, fuzz. Accolades are very good for my low self-confidence. to show my appreciation, expect the Glock to sound a little less wimpy in 2.1.

Espadon:
I thought the same about the cutoff, but it apparently doesn't affect shotgun bullets. Try it yourself. When I offer to add something to my mod, it usually means that I've already given it a rough test.

All right, thanks for the correction. I had tested it out with explosive entities and bullets before, but not birdshot, so I just made the assumption. No jetpacks then?

From what I have now? Not at all. As a matter of fact, to emphasize its CQB state, it'll fire shot at around speed 100 (even slower than normal shot from the Nova and USAS).

Sorry, I didn't mean jetpack as a verb. I was just trying to brainstorm other ideas for a bomb replacement (which I think is not really necessary). I was thinking of a short-range jetpack, not too fast, not too much fuel "ammo."

I see. No, I don't like that idea too much, sorry. I'd wanted to perhaps have "extra nades" instead of the bomb, but the cutoff dealt with that quite neatly (that is, quite messily).

A sawn off would work very, very well as a replacement. The zombie bots I have would like it as well.
