There is a small but very explosive bug with loaded weapons, which shows up when you spawn. It became very evident to me when I got level 3 of loaded weapons. The reason it did is because of my weapons priorities. When I spawn, I expect for the rocket launcher or flak to be my weapon in hand. Instead, what I find in my hands, ready to greet the monsters which I am potentially facing when I do spawn is the redeemer. See the moster, see it attacking, primary fire and BOOM! ops:

Some folks may be wondering why I notice it and not others? From discussions with others on their configurations, I have come to suspect that I am probably one of the few who has highly customized my configuration, from where I place my left hand on the keyboard (the arrow keys, with the numeric keypad at easy reach), to my audio settings (music off, announcer low, sound effects high so that I can hear the bugs), and to my weapons settings. In that area, I learned several years ago to turn off the auto-switch and to move the superweapons to the bottom. Why? Well, think about this...I do not have to worry about running backwards in a firefight and inadvertently running across some slow fire weapon such as the Avril, lightning gun or sniper one moment and loosing the hitting power of the rocket, flak or mini after a nice, sllooww weapons change in the process. Or more dramatically, make that a redeemer and accompaning suicide that goes with it.

The fix? Just a call to pick the best weapon once we are done loading the weapons.

I actually have my controls set up the same way cloud, even the music off.
To make matters worse if you alt tab out of the game and come back in, your weapons are firing when you return. Steelace told me about the windows button which fixed that problem. Anyhow, power to the arrow key users!

good, bad, I'm the guy with the gun.

wahoo!! I thought i was the only one that used the arrow keys. Was told i was a freak for playing like that (it crushed me emotionaly, so i've been a closet arrow key user for 8 years now). just out of curiousity, are either of you left handed? the only other person i ever saw configured like that was, as am i.

I'm a righty I think, thats the one on this side right? Steelace plays this way to emetakleze and he's a southpaw too.

The ion painter now spawns as the top item. This should solve the explosive issue

The fundamental problem is this: The first word we learn as children is NO. From that point forward society teaches women that saying no isn't polite, and society teaches men to respect those who wont take no for an answer.

Unless of course I can somehow manage to spawn with enough delay and a bit more crazyness to make it think I have been trying to fire it on a map on which it works. You know me, if it can somehow be done, I will manage to do it!

At some point, if you figure out how to have it select what is considered to be the player's best weapon, it would be nice if it did, so save the hassle and delay of doing manually. But 2^20 thanks for this change!
