Hope you didn't forget about SCTFL on the Soldat start-up screen/interface, and i hope this is already taken care of? 1, 2.

It was added and it shows up the first time you start soldat, but after a startup that image file gets replaced automatically by an empty file. Shoozza will ask jrgp about it. I will make sure to test it again in next beta

IMO Bink in barrett could be a little bigger... and persist for a little longer (2-3 sec).

New models of weapons are very nice  :)

Yeah I have to remind jrgp about this again and ask Furai if nothing happens.

Ah right we have new weapon gfx (forgot to mention them in the changelog!)
There is a thread with some discussion about this, uh, somewhere.. you should probably post there.

Especially survival players: Please test! I remade most of survival stuff, but lonely testing isn't effective!
We've tested survival a little bit and generally it's ok. Most annoying bugs have been fixed. There are couple of things though:
1. Invisible shield has been fixed but knife still gets blocked when it hits a corpse. We in DB community feel it should behave the way it's used to - knife should be able to fly through a corpse and be able to hit a person crouching/proning behind it.
2. In CTF, during those 5s when round is ending it's not possible to return your flag to base. If the flag is already in base you can however score a cap if you manage to bring enemy flag within those 5s (this results in 2 pts. being awarded, 1 for killing enemy team and 1 for capping).
3. Joining a team during a round doesn't spawn you anymore but one time we did manage to respawn a player. It happened when both surviving players killed each other (resulting in no one being alive) and another player joined the server at that moment. He did got respawned and the round didn't end.

That's all for now, if we find anything else I'll post it.

1. This is a good! We in realistic mode like it.

1. I don't know if knifes should go through dead bodies (applying some common sense here: dead body -> object -> impenetrable by a thrown knife). Only mode I think which has disadvantages from that is probably DB (I wouldn't say ko, since you can move around the body.. Just my opinion). What do others think?
2. Should I disable capping after round end generally? Or how should it work? (That you cannot return or grab flags, was previously only in single player mode like this, even tho it was supposed to be a "feature" for multiplayer too)

Dead bodies could blink and disappear after a little while, just like flag blinks and goes back to base. It would benefit ctf aswell because right now you can tell when a person spawns by looking at when his corpse disappears.
Other guns can shoot through bodies, but that makes sense I guess since they have more speed than a knife.
I do not think the knife should go through bodies, in that case you should make bodies un-interactable for all guns (no blood comming out of them when you shoot them)

1. If everyone else is against it we won't argue, leave it as it is. Although making bodies disappear after a while, like homerofgods suggested, would be a nice feature.
2. In DB we don't use flags so it doesn't really matter to us. I think ppl from realistic should give their opinion.

If I was a DB player the current situation would make me pretty sad. When I play ctf and it happens, it annoys me but it's a rare occurrence so I don't lose sleep over it. Still in a game-play perspective, I would prefer if dead bodies don't interact. Except in realistic mode, obviously.

It can simply add a new feature in the settings?
