Recently I have been trying to improve my strafing and circle jumps.
One friend recommended I train on the XCM_tricks2 map in QL Practice,
since training on this I have discovered the CGAZ HUD for Q3A Defrag.
So I downloaded the XCM_tricks2 map for Defrag, copied my Autoexec folder and pasted it in to my Q3config folder (which I'm sure was successful) and started to practice there too using the VQ3 physics. From what I can tell the maps are identical.
Since I have gone from Q3A to QL I have noticed I can get to the 3rd strafing room
in Q3A Defrag using the VQ3 physics BUT in QL Practice I can barely make it to the 2nd platform in the 1st room!
Also in the circle jump training room on Defrag I can make the last 1 (not everytime) but in QL Practice I can barely make the 3rd from last.
One friend said this was down to my sensitivity, which I have checked over and over again (in QL my sens is 2.00 and in Defrag it is also 2). One check I did was to down my sens on Defrag to 1, which makes no difference in my performance even without using the CGAZ HUD. I also tried upping my sens on QL which also makes no difference.
I have read in one forum that the height you can gain from jumping in Q3A is slightly higher than in QL, but this doesn't not explain the distance. Surely by reaching 500+ ups off of a circle jump you would be traveling the same distance regardless of hight?
I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on this subject for me, even if it's just to say it's all in my head.
