A slightly different kill notification for blue pipes vs green, please.

The kill notification in the top right corner.

They actually are slightly different, although the difference is too tiny to make out. Here are bigger versions:

Now I notice it. Thanks!

P.S. - Will you post the variable damages that the railgun has on the wiki? Does it increase or decrease in damage with each bounce? What's its max damage?

Thanks.

The railgun damage system is pretty weird.

First, the direct damage and projectile speed depend on the charge level and is calculated thusly:

Code:
#define RAIL_SPEED_MIN 1800.0f
#define RAIL_SPEED_MAX 3000.0f
#define RAIL_DAMAGE_MIN 35.0f 
#define RAIL_DAMAGE_MAX 60.0f

	float flSpeed = RAIL_SPEED_MIN + ( (RAIL_SPEED_MAX - RAIL_SPEED_MIN) * flPercent );
	float flDamage = RAIL_DAMAGE_MIN + ( (RAIL_DAMAGE_MAX - RAIL_DAMAGE_MIN) * flPercent );
Second, there are 3 distinct charge levels in terms of bounces and explosions:

Code:
Uncharged: 0 bounces max (no explosion)
Half-charged: 1 bounce max (20 base explosion damage)
Full-charged: 2 bounces max (40 base explosion damage)
Each bounce increases the explosion damage (but not the direct damage) by 140%.

So, using only the distinct charge levels, here is the damage breakdown:

Code:
Uncharged
 0 bounces: 35 direct damage

Half-charged
 0 bounces: 42.5 direct damage + 20 explosion damage (62.5 total)
 1 bounce:  42.5 direct damage + 28 explosion damage (70.5 total)

Fully-charged
 0 bounces: 60 direct damage + 40 explosion damage (100 total)
 1 bounce:  60 direct damage + 56 explosion damage (116 total)
 2 bounces: 60 direct damage + 78.4 explosion damage (138.4 total)
Between uncharged and fully-charged, the direct damage does not go up in steps, so in actuality it's not so exact.

Keep in mind I may not be correct about these numbers. I just put this together from a quick look through the code. The railgun was programmed long before I joined the dev team and the damage system of it hasn't really been touched since.

EDIT:
Oh, and the recoil pushforce (when you shoot, you get pushed in the opposite direction) is also variable and charge-level dependent and is calculated the same as the damage/speed above:
Code:
#define RAILGUN_PUSHFORCE_MIN 32.0f
#define RAILGUN_PUSHFORCE_MAX 64.0f

People actually don't? Spare your fingers!

I'm still not sure which is best as default. For people familiar with gren priming, double-tap would be nice to have defaulted. For people that don't know anything about grens in fortress games, I think they'd just blow themselves up a lot.

Heh, I prefer more accurate concs with less keypresses.

No, I use = for gren2 and Backspace for gren1. In fact, I find it much more difficult to use a mouse button for concing than a keyboard key.

Wait. You HOLD DOWN the "=" key while using WASD to move?

Pics or it physically can't happen.

I know he doesn't use WASD, I think he uses the arrow keys or some shit like that. Even still, how the fuck? I can't imagine how that shit would work and be practical. WASD, ESDF to an extend...that's all I can imagine. I use arrow keys for shit like NES/SNES/etc emulators, but that's about it.

lol yeah I have a pretty unconventional keyboard setup (directional keys I use my thumb for strafing and moving backwards, delete for jump, backslash to duck), but even if I had been using wasd and a key near that for concs, I'd still want it to be so I have to hold the button down rather than 2 click.

If you hold your mouse like dem0n you would win the Most Fucked Up Setup Award.

Actually, I find this setup to be ideal compared to wasd. It works much better for strafing, allbeit a bit slower to learn because you use thumb to strafe rather than your index/ring fingers. I've been using this setup since I started playing TFC when I was 13 lol, and I have mastered it completely. I would have far more issues using wasd setup than with this current one.
