        • UI Bug Fixes
        • Fixed issue with splitscreen players rank.
        • Fixed a rare crash with specific private match settings.
        • 1. Re: Ghosts PlayStation 3 Updates (11/21/13)

          With the glitch fixes could a check be put in to see how many perks a player has equiped? I notice in the killcam a lot of people still have all the perks equipped all the time along with the minigun silenced equiped as a primary weapon. I realize some people accidentally fell into modded lobbies but it seems that at least a check and some auto-kick code on every re-spawn could be implemented to prevent them from any hacked classes. I reported them but don't expect any actions to be taken. Appears to be solved. Thanks!


          I also noticed that the ADS seems to jerk in/out if you are moving close to corners or windows and still moving when you begin to push the ADS button. I turned contextual-lean off but it still does it, so the player just won't go full ADS and stay there sometimes, but if I go ADS first then walk up to a corner already zoomed in it works fine. It's really obvious to catch because I've been using LMGs lately that have such a slow ADS. Solved by putting in slower HDD or by playing off of the Disc instead of the downloaded version.


          The other issue I noticed is that the 'Move Turret' button and 'Reload' button are the same. Plus you cannot turn a turret around from the front, only the back. This became a major issue in team deathmatch. I would lay the turrent one way, it would kill all the players on one side the map, then they respawn behind the turrent, so I would run up and try to turn it the other way but couldn't from the front, even if I ran to the back he would try to reload instead of picking up the turret. By the time the reload on the LMG finished (or my reload cancelled) it was too late, the enemies had time to run across half the map, shot me in the back and destroyed the turret. I don't know what button to make it though, maybe the switch weapon, knife, jump button, or a double-push of a button, but anything that is more reliable than the reload button. THIS IS STILL AN ISSUE ESPECIALLY WHEN TRYING TO PICK UP A NEW WEAPON OR ACTION A DOOR. PLAYER WILL OFTEN RELOAD INSTEAD.


          When running the go prone and slide buttons are the same causing me to slide past short objects out into the open instead of laying down right at the edge to get my head out of view. Not sure what can be done to fix this but I thought maybe tapping for slide, holding for prone, or the reverse. I hate sliding, so personally I'd rather have an option that says "Contextual-SLIDE = OFF". OR MAYBE LET US CHOOSE BETWEEN "Contextual-SLIDE" OR "Contextual-Dolphin Dive."


          I also noticed that the slide distance and speed appears to be the same (high speed and distance) no matter what weapon you use, how much time you've been running, or how long you hold down the prone button, so I could run like 1 foot, slide real far, run 1 foot slide real far, indefinitely with an LMG and nearly keep up with a SMG player using extreme conditioning. Slide speed and distance should be relative to current speed, perks, equipment weight, and should stop as soon as you let go of the button so that if you repress prone you can then actually go prone immediately instead of sliding a predetermined distance far past your intended destination. Plus I almost forgot, you should be able to slide all the way down to the bottom of a steep hill without stopping, but unable to slide up a hill, to gravity also needs to play into it. Even surfaces should affect sliding, for example, you can't slide on a metal grid floor, your boot soles would stick in the holes and break your feet off. Resolved, slides are now dependent on speed and direction.


          I also noticed the dog does nothing for me, I have to kill everyone no matter how close the dog gets, the only time it helps is if I die he then it try's to attack, yet with other players it will run out in front and attack enemies way far away. Then other times it doesn't help them at all. I can run right up and stab an enemies dog in the back and all it does is stand still? THIS REMAINS OPEN. THE DOG STILL WILL NOT RUN OUT UNLESS BEING SHOT. I OFTEN KILL PLAYERS ONLY TO HAVE THE DOG CHASE ME DOWN ACROSS HALF THE MAP YET MINE WILL NOT KILL ATTACK PLAYERS RIGHT BESIDE ME. THE DOG IS NOT SUPPOSED TO WORK THIS WAY. THERE IS SUPPOSED TO BE A RADIUS OF ATTACK.


          Yet still sometimes the dog is impossible to kill, I'll be shooting it far away, get at least 5 hitmarkers short range with the LMG deep impact then before it reaches me or even jumps I fall down dead and can still see the dog 2 or 3 body lengths away in my 3rd person camera falling body scene before the kill-cam. This is extremely annoying since it was never a problem for me to time a knife just right to kill dogs in mid air on Black Ops 1. I guess lag could cause this, but if it's lag why didn't I ever see this problem in Black Ops 1. THIS IS STILL OPEN. RARELY I CAN KNIFE A DOG. I GET HIT MARKER SOUNDS BUT THE DOG STILL KILLS ME. A KNIFED DOG SHOULD FALL TO THE GROUND AT THE VERY LEAST. THEIR JUMP ATTACK RADIUS IS WAY TOO LARGE. THEIR ATTACK DISTANCE AND OUR KNIFE LUNGE DISTANCE SHOULD BE EQUAL.


          This brings up another issue, I guess it is lag too, but it is impossible to know what knife distance actually is anymore, sometimes I can have a player trapped in a corner, try multiple times but can't knife even though I take a lunge, other times they are like 10 feet away but somehow I can knife them, then still other times like in infected a shotgun blast to the head isn't enough to kill them at that distance, but somehow they can knife me across that gap no problem? If the problem is due to the combination of lag and hit scans there has to be some kind of compromise that let's us knife and lunge only at what we both see as close and not what the host thinks is close. I just doesn't make sense that it's much easier to get a long-shot that it is to knife (or even shoot) someone in the back that is standing still right in front of you. This is probably why the game at this point still has so much camping going on, because there is no consistency to 1-on-1 close quarters gun/knife fights. THIS IS A LAG ISSUE AND CAN BE RESOLVED WITH A "NO LAG COMPENSATION" COMPETITION GAMING MODE.


          There's also a minor flaw in the mechanics of high speed running, when running forward at full speed it is possible to instantly walk backwards at full speed even up and down hills. In order to change directions there should be some sort of curve to slow down, stop then, speed up again in reverse. The same for hills, uphill should be slower than downhill, in both forward and reverse. STILL AN ISSUE. ALSO RUNNING BACKWARDS SHOULD BE SLOWER THAN FORWARDS. I'M CONSTANTLY TRYING TO KNIFE PEOPLE IN THE FACE RUNNING BACKWARDS WHILE THEY RELOAD. IT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE AT ALL THAT I CAN'T SPRINT TOWARDS THEM WAY FASTER THEN THEY CAN BACK UP. THEY SHOULD BE FORCED TO TURN AROUND TO SPRINT AWAY BEFORE RELOADING.


          Another minor mechanics flaw is that explosions always pull you in instead of pushing you out. An explosive expert could tell you an explosion inside a tightly sealed building would suck you inwards as it searches for oxygen to burn, but an explosion anywhere out in the open would push you away faster. It's awful running away from multiple impending explosions only to get pulled right back inwards or slowed to a crawl when in fact it should help speed up your departure. If you are running towards an explosion slowing down is fine, but running away the mechanics are all wrong, then in the kill-cam it blasts you far far away, further illustrating slowing you down is against all the laws of physics. STILL AN ISSUE


          This brings up another issue, if I run up on a player that has their arms over their eyes, you'd think 'Hey, he can't shoot nor ADS, he's not even looking this way, plus has his gun pointed away and arms covering his eyes' but that is not the case at all. The animation we see is deceiving. It makes us think he can't see us nor ADS but in fact they may have already done both. If a player gets hit with a grenade but is ADS'd already pointing toward me then it should show them that way not with their arms all strangling about in a white haze. I wish I had a dollar for every time a bullet came out of these blinded people's elbows to kill me. STILL A MAJOR ISSUE. PLAYERS FACING AWAY OFTEN SHOOT BULLETS OUT OF THEIR BACKS AND KILL ME OR I KILL THEM IN THE SAME MANNER. THIS IS OUTRIGHT RIDICULOUS BUT THIS IS A LAG ISSUE AND CAN BE RESOLVED WITH A "NO LAG COMPENSATION" COMPETITION GAMING MODE


          NEW: Release the Ripper to those of us with the season pass. I'm tired of getting killed by it because some hacker dropped it in the lobby. Or ban people that have weapons in their classes that haven't been released yet.

                      I wish you could explain more about these things, like what it does when you change things like dedicated servers! ?

                      • 8. Re: Ghosts PlayStation 3 Updates (11/21/13)

                        Thanks, that would be great, but also would like to be able to turn off kill-cam since it causes so much lag to load and then unload, it often during kill-cams that the connection gets lost. Even after the recent fixes lag is still often so bad that the kill-cam shows nothing near what actually happened anyway, so why watch it, all I want to do is re-spawn immediately and get back into the game ASAP.


                        Maybe an IMMEDIATE RE-SPAWN = ON option in the menu so I don't have to keep waiting for the lag-cam to go away just push square.
