71 FPS reduces recoil

Added by Saukko over 6 years ago

I used two values for this test. First picture shows the centre point I started from.
Second picture shows the result after I shot with com_maxfps 71. And third picture shows the result after I shot with com_maxfps 90.
So the question is: Is 71 fps intended to work as a recoil reducer in the case of snipers and pistols?

Recoil has got a random factor that’s why you are always getting different end positions.

Okay, but when I tried out five times with 90 FPS I ended up to the same position every time, and when shooting five times with 71 FPS I ended up with a lower recoil and a lower position every time. So I do not think that it is so random. With a pistol, there is no random recoil so with that you can see it much easier the difference between these two values.

I’ve had a closer look into the recoil code: real scope weapons (FG42 excluded) have no random recoil factor and the rest of code seems to be frame rate dependant

That is some incredible news. So is it possible to make it random for all guns, because in my opinion it is quite silly that you can affect so much to the recoil with only one value of com_maxfps?
