Hi all, Skulk is my favorite class to play in NS2, however while the movement and wall running is a vast improvement over NS1, I feel it could be better with some minor tweaks.
I believe there are two easy changes needed: The first is that hitting the Ctrl button toggles wall running on/off instead of just turning it off while you hold it down. It can be tricky to hold the button down and press two or more other keys at the same time as well. I would like this change in combat as occasinaly the smart wall running will attempt to stick you to nearby railings or walls thinking you are trying to run up them, when infact you are munching on a Marine just out of reach.
The second change would be to add a special button which means that if you are either:
Trying to run on a wall/ceiling
Move around while cloaked
Both a and b at same time
then it will 'lock' you in that mode. This would mean that you can not fall off walls if you aim camera wrong way accidently or de-cloak you if you collide with some bad world geometry. The locked mode would fix your max speed to cloaked speed (if try to move cloaked) and lock you to wall running if you are currently on a wall/ceiling.
Hitting spacebar should automatically unlock you from either mode or you can simply hit the lock button again (probably Shift key) to naturally unlock. Jump should also 'launch' you off a wall rather than upwards, however I think this is already being implemented (I remember reading somewhere).
