    omg uncomment the hitboxes lol

    I changed the code to use our version and It appears in my testing to work perfectly.

    I think it was not used originally because some event was coming up (NS-LAN in NYC perhaps?) at which Charlie was going to be testing a build and the guys deemed it too much of a risk to allow that untested code in, so it was commented out and was subsequently forgotten about!

    Now *all* hitboxes perform as expected and the crouched fade can be shot pretty much anywhere on the model (allowing for about a 5% visual disparity)

    You can even shoot thru the Onos's legs and not hit him
    As a developer myself, this made me laugh out loud. Soooo much frustration due simply to an oversight.

    guest/guest works jackel.

    To answer your question ender, no I don't think it is. That is a netcode issue that involves the half life engine itself if I am not mistakened. In fact it probably means more deaths since crouching fade should be more likely to get hit now hehe.

    Means skulks will actually freaking die when you shoot them, and I think cagey had written new code for hitbox rotation for skulks. This is probably what's commented out, as well as other changes.

    Makes you wonder if there are other problems like this elsewhere.

    they will probably end up giving fade more HP to compensate for the better hitboxes (like they did to onos in 3.0)

    The only thing I could see for a fade is MAYBE 25 armor points, but any more than that, and its just overkill.
