Send a message via AIM to squeek.
Certain maps have issues with explosion effects occasionally. Most likely, they are exploding and just not showing it.

It is probably loss/choke related.

bring up netgraph "net_graph 3"

and have a look when your on servers.

loss and choke can often be explained for explosions not showing, i sometimes get grenades just "disapearing"

pretty sure it's not connection related...if it were then mulch_faf wouldn't be screwed up. If you haven't seen what I'm talking about yet, play on that map for like 15/20 min or so, not sure exactly how long, but eventually all explosions will stop rendering for you. I have no clue what is causing it but I it's definitely not lag.

That could be a different issue than this, but I think they are probably related.

It's not related to graphics only, the explosion does not occur which could very well be connection as the server I was playing on was laggy that night.

The last time it happened (on aardvark) I detted as a scout ran across and there was no explosion, no scout flying through the air or even slighly kicked back.

I had net_graph enabled and didn't notice anything out of the ordinary but I wasn't exactly monitoring it either.

Dr.Satan the post is about explosions not appearing some of the time and not often, connection related !

What you are talking about can be fixed with an alt+tab
