    Not a fan of tracers and gimmicky stuff at all :/ This is disappointing to me.

    However, since you don't see any tracers unless you are using one, I suppose I can live with it.

      I just hope they don't add to entity count, but it's fun. It's also fun to finally be able to see how much some people suck at shooting.

      That, and if you're an admin and have it enabled, you can see who's breaking your cade from across the map by following the tracers.

        Looks interesting. I'll have to give it a try later tonight. I can definitely see the advantages on helping catch cade breakers on ZM

          I too am disappointed it's less then three hundred lines, much faster then any other tracer plugin, works out of the box, and isn't intrusive if you don't want to opt in. The disappointment is showering over me! :frown:

          Would you be more pleased if this was disabled for the scout and awp?

          It's a bug with the new VPK version of Source. They changed some rendering stuff, and broke a lot more.

          Would be better if it were zero lines, but I digress. Thank you for making them optional to see/use though :grin:

          Sounds legitimate regarding Valve, it seems to be their new hype since last year :S

            I guess. Ideally I would be pleased if there was some way to disable your own tracers for any other players to see. I don't like the fact that we don't have a choice whether to have tracers showing to all players or not.

            Either have it for humans only and zombies can't see it, or have the option to disable it for your self so you don't shoot tracers.

              I thought the same, added the feature, then hit ctrl z a bunch to remove the added lines. Opting out isn't the goal here, just for a few people to know you can be invisible. A global solution is required, and if that means removing a few weapons, then meh!

                Alright. How it sits at the moment is if you have assigned a tracer to yourself, anyone can see it. However, if you haven't assigned a tracer to yourself, it will be invisible to Zombies. All tracers will still be invisible if you haven't opted in. I can't think of a better global solution, propositions are welcome.

                  You're the man. Is there a way to opt back out if you've already enabled tracers by picking a color? If not, maybe you could just add a "Disable" option at the end of the color selection menu.
