Report article RSS Feed Fistful of Frags 3.5 out!

This is the culmination of a project which started five years ago, we have come a looong way.

Posted by R_Yell on Mar 23rd, 2011

The culmination, actually, only will be reached when you play it because that's the ultimate goal. All the development process makes no sense without you, the player. So there's not much more to say, hope you enjoy it, doesn't matter if it's for a day, a week, a month or... whatever :)

Downloading it now... I can't WAIT. I have been loving the earlier versions, and I'm so pumped. This game deserves a lot more attention than it receives!

Have you ever considered making a single-player storyline/campaign version?

- important glitches fixed like quick shooting or ghost hits

Every update you say you fixed Ghost Hits, and EVERY update they are still there, multiple times today i've gone point blank right up someones *** and revolvered em in the back of the head, the mark goes on the body and blood on the wall, but they take no damage.

Seriously, sort that out FOR REAL then keep updating the game with new stuff.

That part refers exclusively to AI. Player hit recognition is the standard source 2007, you gonna find similar issues in other mods just here is way more noticeable because: 1. single shot weapons, 2. there's an indicator which tells you it's false hit. There's no big fix possible as it's hardly fixable in the end, when you understand how networking and prediction works. Many people reported it's much better now regarding this btw, so perhaps you should check your network related convars.

Played it the whole afternoon, and this is by far the best _active_ mod at the moment.
Although it's not very tactical and not realistic at all, I've had really great fun playing it.
I hope many people will keep playing it :)

I like that new coop play mode. Specially Tramonto one where players have one life and each team try to cap the sack, if you die you can spawn some NPCs. Last Man Staning is the least favourite so far.

Of cource original gamemodes (no NPC) are still better, but coop isnt pointless anymore what it was before.

I have tried earlier versions of the mod some time ago, it was fun, but it felt... clumsy, incomplete. WELL NOT ANY MORE!!! Last weekend me and a few friends have played 3.5, and I can say it is now my favorite mod!!!
Everything is balanced, the maps are complex, but not confusing, and beautyfull too!
The weapons feel great to use, it is really satisfying to shoot down somebody with the guns, or just throw a knife at their heads! or even better, JUST PUNCH THEM TO DEATH!
Also, I don't know why, but I just don't feel frustrated when I'm shot down, or murdered horribly, it is just fun!
THANK YOU FOR THIS GREAT MOD! Keep up the good work, I hope to see more servers, and the mod becoming Steam official!

So, is it just me or is reloading handguns bugged?

Whether I use one pistol or two, whenever I reload, my guns are unequipped, and I'm switched to fists. Switching back to my pistol, it is still out of ammo, or on the rare occasion, one bullet has been reloaded.

Okay, it seems to be a bug with the Colt Walker. I haven't had it happen with the Peacemakers.

Pay attention and you'll see a meter while Walker reloads. A different gun can be used simultaneously, it's just a 'feature'.

I see it now. Was very confusing to be switched to fists without any text hint or something (like the info that pops up about secondary fire on the right).
