Rocket Launcher delay
Make rockets client side predicted

It would be nice to get rid of this annoying delay when firing rockets... i don't how much delayed it is, seems to be 0.05~0.1sec but it's really annoying sometimes.

could also reduce the reload time of all weapons in 20%, this would make FF a little bit faster and more aggressive.

Would be good to reduce both damage and explosion radius of the EMPs.
nerf Pyros is mandatory. period.


with love,
immo

Rockets are not clientside predicted (yet), so they will be lagged by your ping time. In most valve games (e.g. tf2) rockets and other projectiles are clientside predicted, but the projectiles displayed are actually faked until they are validated by the server.

In either case, your rockets true speed remains instantaneous, and it's only your clients perception of them that feels laggy.

Faster reload times encourage spam and reduce depth in gameplay, the choice of when to fire becomes less relevant. FF reload speed is already very fast compared to TFC and won't be getting any faster.

even playing on Brazilian server the rocket doesn't go off immediately, like in quake3/4/live for example... although AfterShock already told me the reason for this. even playing with 10~25 ping it is very perceptible.


and why EX_INTERP is not available on FF?

Do we have client side predicted rockets yet? I presume it's something we'd still like to have if we don't.

No, still not clientside predicted. Definitely something that'd be nice, though.
