    Max ups from a circle jump

    What's the max ups that can be obtained from the perfect single circle jump

    I've been using the speedometer in my HUD so it would be good to know for practising

    Thanks

    545. Anything above 540 is basically unobtainable without scripting, though.

    Gobotz -
    Do you know max ups off a circle jump?
    KittenIgnition -
    I think ~530 would be a pretty good QL circle jump.

    I land b2r with around ~620, after 2 jumps. That's with QL's insane ramping values, though.
    Gobotz - sounds about right.

    Yakumo -

    I made 518 trying just now, asked around most guessed somewhere around 550.

    "Lane 8 on razer's map requires around 520+, and Nightmare got 531... that's probably the equivalent of 605 in CPM" from an old thread whodx just found.
    KittenIgnition -
    550 is considered a really good CJ in Quake 3, incredibly difficult to land on flat ground. Unless the game has actually been sped up a lot (I feel like it has TBH), 550 would be impressive on flat ground.

    For reference: o2b required ~550, 555 was top-notch.

    Of course, max CJ speed was 618 or so...

    <wdx> 544 ups Yakumo btw
    <wdx> but gl achieving that
    <Yakumo> how did you figure 544?
    <wdx> check formulae that was posted on esr a while back, dunoo hwo accurate it is thou

    Someone modified http://www.funender.com/quake/articles/cj_theory.html for QL apparently, wdx then lost the thread, heh, maybe find it again later.

    lol. Fortunately you don't need to hit 500 to make B2R. High 400s, and a nice landing near the edge of the bridge, followed by a decent and accurate strafe jump to the sticky out bit is the requirement.

    I can now do B2R ! I didn't think id ever be able to make it. Very pleased with myself and I feel I'm much faster around levels finally, I didn't realise how boosting speed at the start is so important in little bursts. It's making such a difference with item pickups in duel.
