Hi Yohandy,

First, I had to shut down the Blastbay list due to email traffic restrictions on my server. I switched to a discussion forum instead, which people are very welcome to join.


Second, the way this works is as follows. There is a counter that says how often you are allowed to press the space bar key. Whenever the key is pressed, the counter is reset so that you have to wait another x milliseconds before you are allowed to press it again. This means that, if you press it so fast so that you are doing it while the counter does not yet allow you to, you will be wasting a few moments pushing down and releasing the key. So while it is actually not letting you do it more slowly in reality, the fact that it takes time to push down and release the key causes this. Hence, the best way is as you say to tap the key in a sort of rhythm which could be considered a bit of a skill in itself and would thus add some more individuality to each player so to speak. Especially, of course, since the allowed speed is different for each weapon so it takes even more practise. In short, this is not a bug but a very much intended behavior.

Kind regards,

Philip Bennefall

Subject: [Audyssey] q9 bug possibly


Since the blastbay list no longer exist I'm posting this here. I don't know if anyone has noticed, but when you're killing enemies, if you hit space bar very quickly your attacks will slow down. this is bad because enemies will get a chance to attack back if you aren't attacking them. you need to hit space bar in a sort of tapping motion to get maximum number of swings with the club. I think this is definitely something that requires fixing so that no matter how quickly you press space bar, you swing the weapon at maximum speed. Hope this makes sense and that it'll keep people alive longer!
