and other oddities
I’m not sure if this has happened to anyone else and it’s only happened to me on a few occasions, but I was wondering if anyone else had experienced this problem. At times, my cloaking just will not engage. Typically, I love to run a stealth Skulk assassin (full cloak, silence and regen). Running around the map, trailing a marine and then picking them off.
However, there have been times when I’ll hear a marine coming and I’ll run up a wall and wait for my cloaking to engage. And I’ll wait. And wait. And wait. And finally, the marine turns the corner, sees me and I’m usually dead before I have a chance to get away.
Now, I know that this isnt some kind of adrenaline time compression thing happening because I’ve been able to count to ten and my cloak STILL HAS NOT TURNED ON! It’s gotten to the point that I’ve begun to take my hands off the keyboard and mouse just to make certain that I’m not accidentally moving/causing the cloak from engaging.
Likewise, on the flip side, there have been times when I’ve come to a stop and BLAM
, insta-cloak. No waiting or anything. It just flips on the moment I stop moving.
So, is there something about the cloak code that keeps a person from cloaking under certain situations or am I just having some bad luck? I’ve experienced this problem with all the alien morphs (except the Lerk, which I cant stand to play for some reason). I have no idea why I cant cloak at some times and others it’s instantaneous. If anyone can shed some light on this, I’d greatly appreciate it.
Thank you Captain l33t. Here's a hint: If you want serious help, try to avoid the k1dd13 sp3@k. English is already a pain; no sense in making it more obnoxious. - Quote from verbose
