Crouched Hitbox Issues...

<div class="IPBDescription">Can it be fixed?</div>
Personally I don't think the Skulks have been nerfed at all. There has been a growing number of alien players that feel skulks have been weakened but other then the carapace fix (which was a small adjustment) I don't think they were any less lethal then they were before.

There has been one thing I have noticed, sometimes it seems to take considerably more *CHoMPs* (3-5) to kill a crouched marine.

I know there has been talk of a crouched hitbox issue where skulks have to aim for the **obscenity** area <!--emo&:0--><img src='' border='0' valign='absmiddle' alt='wow.gif'><!--endemo--> to hurt the marines, somebody mentioned to me that hitboxes is not a NS issue but a HL issue. Is that correct, is the hitbox issues (I recall almost every HL Mod having Hitbox issues) a problem for HL? Can it be fixed?

    It's been fixed in 1.03 as far as i know.

    I certainly has not been fixed in 1.03, as I can still hid with impunity in a small vent and kill those skulks at my leisure.

    its fixed but only to a certain extent

    as a skulk u have to control held down in a vent to bite someone skulks are so small tho that they dont need ctrl to be in a vent so noone uses it and hence noone does damage

    but ive noticed 1 other thing

    u cant bite downwards or upwards (i dont enjoy that cuz sometimes i jump people from below or from above and totally miss cuz i land on there head or attack their feet)

    yea this appears to be a real issue, many times i have come across a marine in the vents got up from behind chomped away and the marine turns around laughs and kills me at his leisure O_o

    if ctrl isnt held in while in a cent your bite will not affect the human player at all but if u hold in ctrl is works

    The hitbox bug is definitely still there. Came up behind a HMG sniping from a vent, chomped, kept chomping while he was taking out my teammates. Got in ten or eleven bites, STANDING there. He turned around and wasted me. Don't think he took any damage whatsoever.

    Definitely is still seems to occur more from the back of the marine, but it could just be random coincidence with which marine held the crouch key and which didn't.

    Why should a marine be able to spin around freely and fire a rifle in a 1x1 foot vent? The marines ought to be pistol only in the vents. Reminds me of counter-strike vent AWP'ing, in real life no way you can spin in a vent with a 4 foot rifle.

    It is? wow I must have been luck because I ran into a fleeing marine(was trying to get away from a fade) in a vent as a lerk and I took two bites and downed him lol I guess I got lucky.

    I know this isn't fixed for a fact because I ran at a marine from behind in a vent and started to bit him and I got in at least 3-4 chomps and he didn't die. This was very early into the game and there was not any arm lab upgrade yet.

    like i said hold the ctrl button and yet bite will work ive tested it and its proven true

    in vents always hold control (even if u are a skulk and dont need to u need it to bite)

    if u dont hold control your bite wont do **obscenity**

    Homicidal, when you say 'hold down Ctrl', what have you actually got bound to it ?
  • DemerzelDemerzel Join Date: 2002-11-18 Member: 9181Members
    just got told to "f*ck off you lame mofo" because as a marine I had the "lameness" to take refuge in a vent whilst reloading in a cqb.

    some people are so stupid they shouldn't be allowed to play flf.
