About me

Hello Folks, i am Lightning !
Team GSG 9 is my Clan

  • I´m playing First Person Shooter games since 1998 !

  • I´m playing very often Coop games vs. Bots with friends
    if possible preferably with more than just 4 players

  • I love realistic and tactical gameplay with good ingame voice communication.

  • I care for my teammates by covering them and giving fire support as good as i can.

  • I love Close Quarters Combat (CQC) / Close Quarters Battle (CQB)

  • I mostly do fast moves from cover to cover, i am a quick aimer and deadly pointman in a squad !
    --> that´s why my Nickname is Lightning ;-)

Best regards,
playing as LIGHTNING Team GSG 9

I absolutely agree !
It´s still too bulky at the moment ( since beginning ) and should be slick like in the video shown.

Cannot understand why it hasn´t been changed yet.

@scorchedpaint said in Jittery after the new update, not to mention FPS drops:

Hi All,

I am experiencing stuttering of the model characters during gameplay. Like a super fast stuttering of the models when running or moving. It sometimes goes away if the model if further away. Anyone else experience this? Its incredibly annoying and ruins the gameplay a little. Other than that the game runs super smooth. Seems with my high end pc this should not happen as other people dont have that problem. And its not the frames skipping its the actual player models. Makes no sense to me...

860 SSD Samsung 500GB

I have the same shiver/jitter/shake ( whatever you call it ) of the character models too.
Interesting that it only happens in multiplayer games.

But , when i play a singleplayer mission the jitter gone.
So i think it´s a netcode problem, that NWI still could not fix, yet ( we all hope that they will get that fixed soon ) .

That might be connected to the hitbox and the actual position of the moving characters.
People from different places on the world play together on one server and their pings are different.
Every character move of each player and each bot ( coop ) on the map has to be transfered to each player simultaniously, which seems to be a very difficult task ( to make it look smooth and fluid move).

Therefore NWI should ask for professional help of other gamedevelopers who don´t have these problems in their games.
NWI´s actual netcode programmers don´t seem to be able to fix this problem on their own abilities.

So in the name of all unsatisfied players /customers :
NWI, please get external netcode experts to get the job done !

Yes , i support this idea !

And no, there is no incredible realism in this game. There might be just a few things that come close to realism.
But i like the game as it is.
It just needs some little improvements and here and there and some important supplementing like a voting system to be able to kick Teamkillers off the server.

Yes, you can delete any existing loadout now

@dutchxarms said in Hax:

looks all korean's they suck at gaming i guess

I am not Korean but that sounds racist to me.
You should be carefull with such statements !

I bet there are creators and buyers of cheatcodes worldwide.
Depends on the individuals character and education if they use such cheats in multiplayer games.
You should NOT have prejudice against a specific nation because there are some cheating people ( in comparison to millions of players who don´t cheat )
How old are you ? 16 ?

@arc said in Hax:

Thank you, it appears that this user is now banned.

until they buy a new copy and do it again

Getting some more cash is good for NWI.

When you missbehave in your country and don´t obey to law, you are sentenced to pay money ( in worst cases to prison ).
Who ever can afford to pay the bills might not change his mind and way of acting.

Let the cheaters cheat and get banned as often as they can afford to buy new Sandstorm copies.
The only one who really profits from such behaviour is NWI.

You can change the colors by click and hold with your left mouse button on top of the numbers left of the color boxes ( 3 of them )
Each number can be changed by pulling the mouse to left or right and the tone of the color changes in realtime.

  • As enemies don´t have any icons on their characters the enemy color is shown on the mission objectives icons ( as long as they control the point ).
  • The Friend Color is showing your steam party members in the shown color.

Turning the compass permanently on in the game options helps to overcome the missunderstandings but the direction thing should be done right !

Developers Feedback has always been important for the community.

I cannot remember any thread here in the Sandstorm Forum where a software developer of NWI posted something like ( for example ) :

  • Yes, thank you for your finding
  • Noticed, good suggestion !
  • Will put it on the to do list
  • Acknowledged
  • confirmed and working on it

or something like :

  • no we don´t want this
  • that is not the way we want the game to go

Alexbronski is the only one who comments here and he is not even a software programmer as far as i know and doesnt really count as a member of the software developers team.
Please don´t get me wrong. He is doing a great job as a community manager but he cannot give us sufficient information about the intentions of the developers.

So my question to the developers :
Do you guys have too much work to do or do you just have no interest in what we write here ?
Many of us are investing a lot of time in this forum and i have the impression that we are completely ignored.

Steam Forums get more attention of NWI, although steam is just a gaming platform for buying, organizing and modding games.
