    People standing still at the beginning of a game

    Hello.

    I've noticed this a few times when a deathmatch begins.
    I'll be like sprinting off to get some weapons & notice the odd player standing perfectly still.
    Cant resist shooting them down to get 1st blood.

    I wonder why they do it?

    The could be going to the bathroom or any number of other things, or they haven't turned off preload player skins and they aren't in yet.

      The dont do anything.. all load maps in diff speeds... in ONS i'm always the one to load... so I always get a 3 2 1 ... while others complain that they miss that feature from UT2003! (they load so slow they never see it)

      And my rig is FAR from fast... it's mid range

        I usually play in instagib and when they vote for a map I don't have downloaded yet and they do, it seems my player is placed in the map before I even get there so when I finally am able to move about I'm already killed 3 or 4 times. I think it's funny, but it only happens when I don't have the map or my internet connection lags for a few moments.

          They're still loading the textures for the level as they have a slower machine...

            Press F1 and take a look at their ping. If it's 999 then they are still loading.

                There is a feature i've seen in a couple servers where it has a 1 minute practice session at the start. That way all the slower people are in before the game begins. Should be on as default IMO.

                    Aye. But it should be on other game modes.

                      but what about how the name of the demo??
                      It'll be default...go to Demos folder and rename it after

                        It was used quite a lot in the TTM mods. Was one of the better features if you ask me.

                          It's been a while since I played competitively, but in all UT99 leagues that I played in you had to wait until all players had pressed fire before the match would start. Obviously this isn't a good idea on public servers

                            AFAIK you can bind any console command to a key. That way you won't be killed while trying to type the command.


                            EDIT: didn't see that others had already said this. NM
