Cannot be done on spacebar without a mousewheel mimic script.
actually, you can bhop without scripts and on the spacebar. It's not nearly as effective obviously, but I did it fine. It's not like the 170% cap is especially hard to hit.

Like 1 decent jump out of 10 you can. Whacking the spacebar 100 times a minute.

Depends what you're used to. I used to play with just spacebar and it could be argued that it works better (well.. kinda) with slight delays on your jumps. Because hitting the 170% cap was harder, it allowed more air movement inbetween each hop, rather than being limited to straight lines when you're hitting the cap after 2 or 3 hops. That is, I wouldn't have to crouch to keep speeds down.

Though, just before I stopped TFCing I was getting pretty accurate and begun hitting speed caps as med/scout quickly everytime anyway. Once you've had the practice it's np.

You only need to press the spacebar once.

yep, the only real problem is when you're going up or down ramps it gets harder to hit it accurately. But yeah, it's completely doable.

Good times.
Hey now, own3r is really helpful. He keeps things in balance by bitching about everything we don't do or want to do. Since he has beta access, it's like a preview of what half of the community will say when patch changelogs are released.

The only really awesome player using the spacebar without a script for bhopping that I can remember is Award. His bunnyhop was excellent more than good enough for playing offence at the very top so that should prove that it was possible with practise. I'd still argue however, that it was impossible to reach the kind of perfect bhop that gave you that little edge(I'm thinking cenobite, bobo, rizzo etc) without a script.

It really isn't that hard to bunnyhop with just "+jump" bound to the spacebar once you get used to the timing. That's how I learned to bunnyhop--just space bar with +jump. No scripts at all. It's probably why it took me like 3 months to get it right, but afterwards I could bunnyhop practically perfectly with only the spacebar. Of course, now that FF removed the timing aspect, I can't bunnyhop for crap in TFC anymore. :P I'd need to "warm up" again.
