    Especially when giving targets or placing buildings.
    The problems *seems* to happen alot of the cursor hits the boundary though.


    Not much else to say here really, except its fucking annoying to deal with as a com.

    I've never had this happen to me. Can you reproduce it?

    What do you mean can i reproduce it.
    It happens all the goddammed time


    Not on a custom server though (oh lord everything is so fluid as com compared to a normal server), so id imagine its some lag caused bug

    The point with reproducing a bug is that literally anyone can do it by following the repro steps. It has nothing to do with me. I'm not going to be fixing it. It's been a requirement for posts in this section since forever. I'm a flexible guy so I try to help repro bugs when I can, but I can't in this case, so you're going to need to do it yourself or find someone who will do it for you (cough*candles*cough).

    Oh and shotgun is hilarious if you hold m1 for some time

    Or you can hold r as well, even better
    Hell, you can make it swallow ammo without shooting anything
    Anyhow, its not lag related, must be some weird overflow due to players or high buildings. Gotta grief some team on saturday to find out.

    oh sweet jesus you can glitch the shotgun into firing two shots at once.

    It's a known bug. It's hard to pull off and we're pretty sure only one shot actually gets fired (check the pellets) despite the ammo usage.

    does it happen if keep the mouse button pressed and then it fires on release?
    if so, its just the animation playing a 2nd time.

    also that comm thing is wierd, but i steer the camera with wasd so ill never notice ...

    Probably the best question would be, does this happen for anybody else?

    If not, then its very likely that its just some issue in your PC/Internet or empires settings.

    You wont really solve this by raging and making fun of questions asked or going offtopic.

    So explain, what exactly does your problem do?
    What exactly are you doing when it happens?
    The more words you use the better.
    Talking about your comm view issue, not shotguns.

    Explaining the reproduction steps is the very first basic thing to do when making bug report absolutely everywhere and always.

    One more question.
    Did you always had this problem or did it just appear recently?

    Then "my pc" would be faulty over three different pcs and "my internet" would be the same for epic and viper.

    This isnt 1995, "your pc" is not really a valid answer anymore.

    I had it at least since 2.2 times, maybe even before, but i wouldnt remember.

    So explain the issue thoroughly.

    Nobody is ever gonna care if nobody else is gonna have the same problem.

    Maybe we all have the same problem, just didnt understood yours.


    But me personally got no idea what you are talking about, nor did I ever had this issue.
    Looks like its the same for spartacus.

    I wouldn't say this happens to be all the time, but I'm awfully surprised that there's anyone who comms regularly that hasn't experienced this before.

    Holding M1 with the shotgun does the same thing as it does with any other semi-automatic weapon. Pistols and NFHR do the same thing. I'd figure that holding R is 'cause it has some custom reloading code, but when I tested it, it didn't have any practical effect on the game.

    I don't know anything about the building menu prices being wrong; that's all pulled from scripts.

    And the view moving when alt-tabbed, I think the game just moves the screen whenever the cursor is outside the bounds of the screen.

    So what exactly happens?

    I dont remember being ever forced out of comm view by itself, or by moving mouse or anything else then pressing the proper key for it.

    Maybe candles could give us atleast approximate reproduction steps?

    So this happened a shitton on todays round of moors, which also probably was the best game on moors you can have anyway.

    It really seems to have to do with having some units selected with targets. Anyway, alot of people on screen= this happens.

    Half the time i tried to move around i got booted from the view and started moving my vehicle cam instead.
