It just gives software users an unfair advantage over everyone else. I'm on Windows 7 so I don't even get the software option (just opengl). Sure, software looks crappy but when others can see you while you are cloaked and you can't see them while they are cloaked...

Also, just make the base cloaking device an oversized sensor jammer.

win7+software mode works just fine.

unless you're talking about 1.40, which as no software mode.

yep, 1.40. I found with Win7 that any other version was more likely to crash.

A feature that fools SOME players is still worth using.

Jam a cloaked/ collision less object in front of them periodically.

Hahaha... Invisible, non-collide-able blast walls for every player! Inches from their faces.

I did this with a flag mounted to the player for a while in Blue Sex. If they were using the HM flag it would be in their face, non cheaters might see it 20 feet below their arse if they looked closely.

What if they use HM with no additional shapes?
