Small bug in gameplay
« on: April 05, 2011, 10:36:17 am »

I notice that for maps that have cloaked enemy spies playing, after I die and in those moments before respawn, I'm able to see the chat bubbles from cloaked spies. I can't see the spies themselves but I don't think it is intended that I see the bubbles either. Also, posting here because I can't post it in the bug section for some reason.

That's intended.

I actually like that. It shows where the spies are headed.

tbh I don't see it doing much harm anyways, and it's been in the game for so long, you almost can call it a feature

There's also another small bug I noticed involving the spy. In the previous version, when a cloaked spy was set on fire, even if you turned away from the spy, activating its passive invisibility, you still could see the flames that were attached to it. Now though, even if a spy is completely on fire, if you turn away from him you loose all sight. This is a bit more precarious than the chat bubble since I more than once lost sight and let a flaming spy go by because I couldn't see the fire.

I think that is intentional.

We use launchpad for a reason. All of these things you've found have been found and reported long before you posted this topic.

You can see the talking bubble on cloaked spies in TF2 alltalk servers.

I remember back in the 2.1 days when the coding was flawed in such a way that randomly your bubbles would appear to the opposing teams if you're using chat bubbles

actually we should put that back in to make a "leaking feature"

Oh lawl. You mean ala Mafia ?

Though if you're serious about that there's going to be some repercussions (and you'ld have to make bubble invisible to the opposite team but heh)
