This is probably long overdue. A lot of people are desiring some standard(s) for competition most notably in SS runs. This is very complicated subject as there are so many different versions of Half-Life, goldsource and its mods. With many Pros and Cons on different levels to each every difference and feature.
I personally am very much in favor of creating our own custom framework, a long the lines of what AG was for the HLDM community. This can fix the game in its obviously favor in most cases, something Valve could, and should easily do but just won’t.
There’s a lot to debate, but I feel we as a community are mature and advanced to enough undertake this and ultimately satisfy the vast majority of everyone’s desires for a stronger community and better gaming and viewing experience. This is a very important matter that needs fair and adequate community involvement and should be carefully and arduously done.
I’ll update this as necessary with points of discussion.
-Uncapped bhop … Largely in agreement
-Framework … Very much in the air
-jumping method … previous polls for scripted runs suggest tribes/quake style AG supports special over mouse wheel
(special script jump, shotgun script jump, quake style, tribes style, mousewheel/hardware scripts, 3rd party scripts)
Matter of Business
Do you support a mod, injection, something else, only strictly vanilla; what is the best type of framework to use going forward? What are the pros and cons with each.
