Yes. they prevent bounce. Something that I've always hated most.

No. They ruin the rest of the gameplay.

i haven't played much lately and i can't tell the difference from before - but i've never been having much bounce (rubber teleportation) problems before either so...

i couldn't really vote, there are some nice uses for bounce so i'm off to test if i can still do superspeedstrips now :D

edit: i can still do superspeedstrips :mrgreen: so i don't mind any changes. a bounce is when rubber makes you change which side of the trail you're grinding right? if not plz explain

ive found that the server that says 'measures to prevent bounce' have no effect at all in fact i often see the worse bounce in that server

please give details of what you actually did (if anything) to try and prevent bounce

I would check your sources before you try and figure out what server you will make your new home at. 8)

If you like the armagetron game play style, try Tigers Network Armagoshdarn Clone it's very good ;).

Well seems like ISH is still up, the posts must have been some spammers. I can't tell who is real and true anymore, to much code stuff I guess. :o
