as topic says, why the hell isn't this already fixed? you add headhost effects and debugs it, but won't change some values and how the image should be drawn...

this would unlock a lot of modding possibilities...

It's no bug, it's just how pictures are drawn in Soldat. I agree, but add the M79 bullet too please

Change your description then. It doesn't matter from "where it is drawn" but where is the center. That means where it gets turned around

+1 please consider doing this.
It would help a lot for mod making.

You're probably the only person here who doesn't understand his point.

Sprite {
 x,y,w,h;
 Draw(...){
   screen.draw( x + w/2, y + h/2, surface,...);
 }
};

all images are squares... if you're talking about numbers that can't be divided by 2, then you just add +1 to the width and height (or minus one)

F12, but not for all graphics, since that would ruin all interfaces ever made. Would be nice for crosshairs and bullets.

idk if its better for cursor, ppl are used to calculate the bullet arc by how it is already. Btw in my POV, would be better to use directdraw, instead of sprite, to render the cursor... Would prevent those imba cursor with a giant vertical line on it.

You seem to mock eC's work very often lately. Maybe you want to start developing next soldat releases by yourself?

It'd fail even harder than it already does.

we're talking pascal now... I'm not really familiar with it, but as far as I know, it's a rather weak language.

sure, I could develop soldat all by myself.

Also weapons and gostek bodyparts.

Yeah, this fix would make modding community very happy. It would be especially good now, when most people are getting bored from normal Soldat and are playing mods more often.

You're probably the only person here who doesn't understand his point.
If that makes you feel smarter, I had no idea what -Major- was talking about either.

Basically whatever you, just you and only you want is ok, everything else is, as you say, shit.
Somehow your posts from long ago seemed to me more appropriate, but lately you've been acting like a stereotypical troll. What can I say.. stop trolling and leave the forums, please. Stand in the corner and think about your behavior.
