Better AI in HL2's Mmod is great, but better aim is annoying as hell

2021.12.08 19:43 Bounter_ Better AI in HL2's Mmod is great, but better aim is annoying as hell

So, another post of me criticizing MMod, despite me loving it and still saying it's god damned great. But this one, is going to be bit different, it will be me describing a specific option, that changes the entire way you approach the game, and combat in HL2.
The better AI and aim option, is something I've talked about briefly in one of my posts, and while it's great in some ways (enemies using alt-fires more often, them being able to jump to get to lowground quicker and such) it also has a big problem in causing the biggest bursts of anger I've ever had in this game. You might be saying though, that it is primarly a good thing, and I mean, yeah, but that's why I'm here to tell you the bad things of it, and why it can be the biggest annoyance ever.
And the obvious one is... HL2 wasn't made with good enemy aim in mind. This could apply to HL1 aswell and many other games, but I'm going to elaborate. In games where enemies have good aim, you usually have some mobility and abilities that allow you to dodge the enemy fire easier, especially if they use projectiles. Examples of such games are: Doom Eternal, Team Fortress 2, in both of these, you have stuff like double jumps, advanced mobility (blast jumping, meat hooking) and more, that combined with other mechanics (like faltering in Doom) allow you to counter the better aim of enemies.
In Half-Life 2 MMod however... There is jackshit you can do. It boils down to doing the same thing like in vanilla HL2. Just sit behind cover and try not to die, because one moment you are with 80 HEV and then you meet 2 Combine Soldiers and your HEV drops down to 50-40. Happens too often to even be funny I won't lie. Because enemies have hitscan (even with projectile bullets on) they will snipe and chip at you from long range, and absolutely melt you in close distance, so hiding is necessary. Which sucks, because running quickly is fun. Also cover isn't as great because enemies have better grenade and nade launcher aim so yeah...
I'm not pulling this out of my ass either. Because anyone who has played MMod on Entanglement's turret sections and Anti-Citizen One with Alyx opening the door before the broken bridge, then you know what I mean. These sections have caused rage, tears and anger for more than just me, lots of people quit playing the mod in these sections, simply because of how tough they were.
Also if you think I am just complaining, if enemies in HL2 were supposed to be deadly and accurate, then Gordon would have more dodging options than jumping and sprinting. Also we wouldn't need a mod to give them accuracy either. Again, the addition isn't bad, but the have they have hitscan, means counterplay is nonexistent.
TL:DR - Better aim in HL2, is unfun as hell, other additions of AI improvements are awesome, but they didn't have to touch this one.

2021.12.08 19:43 ReggieBasil [Mod Post] Off season mod post, and new rules around the posting of article text

We are currently very obviously in off season mode, there will be a little more latitude about what gets posted and allowed to stay up etc but we will look at it on a case by case basis, we are still around but like everyone else we are probably not as around as in season, and that things will return to normal once the season starts back up.
Please continue to abide by the rules of the sub, lets keep the mates at a pub vibe going and enjoy the place. Yeah it's a meme but we like a good maymay
What we aren't enjoying is the bickering and nastiness that is emanating from every second thread about the posting of articles. This has quickly become a very tedious and over-done argument about what should and shouldn't be done by other people. Let others decide for themselves if they want to post an article, and keep yourself to yourself on that.
The mod team are aware that this has become a source of antagonism for a small group that are now sniping at each other across the sub. This will now stop. Both sides of the argument have overstepped, and now we must step in.
SO: From here on:
We will remove any complaints or discussion around posting the article text. ​If you or someone else wants to post it, go ahead. If you or someone else doesn't want to post it, don't. The vast majority don't care and are sick of seeing comments about it. Post it, don't post it, do what you want, leave others be.

It's a Murdoch/Channel 9 piece, they are the antichrist and journalistically awful, I don't want to give them revenue from clicks
Don't care. Post the article if you want. Don't post it if you don't want to. Don't complain about what others do around that.
It's copyrighted material, the journalist is making money from clicks and you're consuming his/her content for free, that's not right
Don't care. Nobody representing any news company or Reddit itself has flagged to us that we can't have article text posted in comments, so until that time you don't have to post the article, others can though. Your position around posting the text has already been noted.
I can't read the article it's behind a paywall can't someone post a comment
Someone will, they pretty much always do. Don't fret. If it was important, you could subscribe, or it will be in another news report on a free site soon. Chill.
We will be taking a line on this as it has become very repetitive and tedious. Report comments around the issue of posting article text as anti social behaviour, and mods will take it from there.
Further, if you do choose to post the article text, do so but do not thread in paragraphs about other users or other means of antagonising users as again, this is anti social behaviour.
There it is.
A Merry Ashes to you all.

2021.12.08 19:43 MarikSwift Where does this notion that the gang are a bunch of horrible people?

It's something I hear from casual viewers and fans alike, and I seriously don't get when and how this notion started?
I think it might be people just far too often closely associating Friends with Seinfeld (which actually, and intentionally, was about them being horrible people).
Other than Rachel, I can't think of anything that any of the friends have done that give this impression that they are horrible people...

2021.12.08 19:43 bobbydigitales Advice wanted about Rampage cab

I don't know what to do with this Rampage cab. I bought it about 10 years ago and it had already been modified. It has no game board, no CRT and someone has drilled holes in it to add more controls.
It had an old PC in it and the controls were broken, so I added a 5GHz PC and a complete MAME set and replaced all the controller boards and wires so it works. With CRT emulation on an LCD it's pretty convincing.
The problem I have now is that I don't have space for it any more, but I have no idea if it's worth anything in this state. I have no idea what to do with it, any advice appreciated!

2021.12.08 19:43 Simple_Run_5807 Can someone help me with this mental problem I have real quick?

I’m not sure if this is the appropriate place to post this but oh well. I have this issue and I’m not sure what it means or if it’s associated with some illness or if it’s an illness itself. I don’t want this to be too lengthy so Ill dive straight into it. Basically I will have a thought which would be something along the likes of “mmm if I look up and the clock say 2:44 that means my friend doesn’t like me” or if another student is reading something out loud to the class and I determine that if they mess up or something while reading a sentence, that means that x or y is going to happen or is secretly happening. I’m so confused and it interferes with my day-to-day life. Any help? Maybe this is just normal.

2021.12.08 19:42 vmaurya7 Living Truth

Truth isn’t in books or systems or practices or teachers. It isn’t to be found in concepts. It isn’t fixed. It isn’t a thing than can be grasped or explained.
There is the Absolute Truth, which is eternal and unchanging,
and a Living Truth that is in continuous motion, sometimes referred to as the Tao.
You can’t explain the truth. You can only be it. It doesn’t look like anything in particular. It has no identifiable characteristics. It doesn’t behave in a particular way. It doesn’t belong to a particular system. It doesn’t have a certain location. It doesn’t have a personality. It is nothing and everything at the same time.
You can’t understand the truth, because the truth isn’t a thing, and only things are capable of being understood. Drop any notion you have of the truth, because any notion you have is not it. That includes all possible notions, including this one.
Truth is in front of you. It’s inside of you. It’s right on your skin. It’s in the air you’re breathing. It’s on the ground beside your right ankle. It’s also nowhere at all. You can try to wrap your head around it, but you won’t be able to. You can discuss it, but all it would be is a non-living abstraction.
Stop looking for truth.
Stop talking about truth.
Stop arguing for your version of the truth.
The truth doesn’t care about your opinions.
The truth is indifferent to your concepts.
You’ve already got it.
It’s here.
Now be it.
