And u should add more weapon :)

September 30, 2004, 5:02 pm
I like it as it is but it looks interesting

September 30, 2004, 5:02 pm
That's a good idea [:)] I hope i'm not the only one that say it [:)]

September 30, 2004, 5:08 pm
Someone has been playing CS.

I like the weapon menu as it is.

September 30, 2004, 6:03 pm
It could be an option [:)] :


September 30, 2004, 6:13 pm
Looks okay, but I think many people would favour the classic to your suggestion, some respawn times are quick, very quick, that and I guess people don't really give a damn about the weapons, and it's better with simplicity, having to scroll is an instant lose when theres a fast respawn time.

Clic "RESPAWN" to respawn ^^


New Edit:


September 30, 2004, 6:54 pm
Too complex. I like the effort put into the suggestion, though. I don't, however, like the "level" part :)

September 30, 2004, 6:56 pm
That's it! Great! I want to control when I respawn! :D

September 30, 2004, 7:10 pm
If it was still a normal respawn time, and when the respawn time is up, if you haven't clicked respawn, you won't respawn before you click on it, or everywhere outside the weapon menu. And this is another thing that would be great:

And if you only double-click on the weapon in the menu, it's selected.

September 30, 2004, 7:15 pm
Hey I like this option idea

September 30, 2004, 7:24 pm

Now i've realy finished ^^

September 30, 2004, 7:55 pm
A small change to your idea, snake12:

September 30, 2004, 9:35 pm
I like it!

A bit more complecated, but I like it anyway! Gives you more control and some weapwns info.

NICE! The option idea is good too.

September 30, 2004, 9:37 pm
IUts simple to messy...its easier the common menu, for fast respawns.

October 1, 2004, 9:12 am
Simply double-click on the weapon you want and it's selected like one-click on the menu today. And normally, when i play with the same weapon all the time:

This would be so good I can't believe it! [:)]

It's an alright idea, though I like the current weapon selection system the way it is.

too complicated. cool idea though.

October 1, 2004, 3:33 pm
no leveling up weapons though.... then i think this idea would be [file]yes.gif,12724,,[/file]

October 1, 2004, 3:40 pm
i really like.. but i dont understand what the exp is for...

shouldnt that be some thing like damage or sumthing?¿?

October 1, 2004, 4:28 pm
high experience = high accuracy and fast reload

This would be perfect ;Q

October 1, 2004, 5:07 pm
LOL!!!That is a good Idea!!!

October 1, 2004, 7:38 pm
i thought that already in soldat clicking outside the weapon box...

October 1, 2004, 9:07 pm
No. No leveling. Period. Your new suggestion (Apart from your grammar errors, yes, I am a lingual nazi) is rather good if there would be new weapons added.

October 2, 2004, 9:27 am
i just luv this.

October 2, 2004, 10:42 am
Ewww didn't see that EXP the first time. EXP would not be very good (actually it would suck) because you would need a central server to store your EXP on or you would store it in your game folder and everyone would be messing around with it.

October 2, 2004, 11:20 am
Was just thinking about it. But we could have an exp in just the server, and when you leave, you loose all your exp.

^^Dammit it wasnt a good idea lol [:P] ^^

October 2, 2004, 12:06 pm
no it wasn't.

October 2, 2004, 1:25 pm
Experience for weapon...wake up dude, this is soldat, not Diablo, nor S.W.I.N.E. nor Red Alert!

October 2, 2004, 1:48 pm
That's why i said "dammit this wasnt a good idea" but the red bar should show how much it hits, so the barret hit 100& so the red bar should be totally red, and d. eagles hits 55% then 55% of the bar is red... That's my idea.

October 2, 2004, 1:50 pm
eh? nah that's dumb... i would just give them like 'hit points' but that's not very intelligent either because they vary with the part of body you hit and the kinetic energy (e.g. shooting upwards does not as much damage as shooting downwards)

October 2, 2004, 2:03 pm
ok then... But maybe Michal should take a look to this??? I mean that's a good idea, if it's an option.

October 2, 2004, 4:27 pm

October 2, 2004, 5:28 pm
few things:
- that outside click to keep same gun is already in the game for those who don't no!
- and the barret does not do 100%! It does over 100
- and guns do different damage depending on how far away so i think that if the bar should show how much damage, it should have a range, at least of the most common areas from a certain distance: from how much damage it does when shooting at the screen end to how much damage it does when the person is right in front of u!

I agree

October 4, 2004, 4:12 am
eh sounds fun...

October 4, 2004, 4:33 am
No weapon exp this isn't a rpg
but i like the idea... now if Big M sees this...

October 4, 2004, 6:21 am
Best part about this idea is that when the weapons editor is released, you'll be able to see how the weapons have changed in each server, assuming the variables are set up right. Awesome idea.

October 8, 2004, 2:43 am
i think that idea is greeeaaat.
go for it i rekon.
i have always wanted more weapons in soldat, the current ones are cool, but they are missing some.
also, weapons modes would be kool, like a under-slung grenade launcher (m203) or a small-zoom or as lazer sight etc.
customizable weapons, thats the word.
any1 here play americas army? like the m4a1 SF weapon

October 8, 2004, 9:39 am
If it was an option then why the hell not? And I how you could chose when to respawn by clicking Fire. Would be good for servers with too short respawntime for you to press Tab, or if you wanted to go afk for a minute without getting killed a bunch of times.

New cool modern weapon menu.... yes

What are you guys talking about? That red bar is not for Exp at all, he never even suggested that. The Red Bar represents the accuracy of the weapon, like showing how the guns are accurate compared to each other.

For example, MP5 would have a low red bar, while Barret or Minimi would have a high red bar.

I didn't see anything about experience...which would be a bad idea. A bad bad bad bad idea.
