[Mod/Bug] Slow bullets.


#1

When I arm a fighter with a bullet weapon with a large fire interval and a slow travel speed, very often - for some reason - the fighters just cruise right on by and a few moments later all their bullets appear where they should’ve fired a few moments before.

Weapon being used is in the code box.

What sort of frame-rate do you have when this happens? is it happening regardless of the speed of the game controls?


#3

Frame rate seems to be usual - I don’t notice anything out of the ordinary.

Seems to be happening regardless of speed. And it seems proportional to the amount of fire interval. I wouldn’t say this bug is too high priority or anything, though!

Occasionally I catch a glimpse of a bullet stretched/warped between the ship and where it’s ‘firing’ from.
