I've tweaked minor things like m_pitch, turned off atmospheric effects, changed size and shape of crosshair, but nothing major.

Dare@LoL my bad.

you can't turn off your m_pitch the less than you can set it up is 0.0111 if my memory doesn't fail me. Could you copy and paste that cvars that you changed before.

There is no fix to it, unfortunately. You can try to delete all .pk3 files from your jaymod folder, but dunno if it helps :x

maybe I am dumb, but what do you mean exactly by 'bullet lag'? Isn't that a normal et feature for the poor highpingers?

how high is your ping, in the server where you experience that so-called 'bullet lag'?

 

 

When you shoot, that information is sent to the server (and the higher your ping is, the more time it takes), then you actually shoot on the server when your message arrives.

Then, in the next snapshot the server sends to you (and again this takes some time on the network), there are some 'events'.

Your client will parse these events, and play the effects (i.e. hitsounds, tracers, 'little dust clouds' on targets).

 

If your ping is high, these things (for tracers it's particularly noticeable) will be obviously delayed. And that's normal.

In etpro, and etpub, silent, etc. they had the nice idea to make a cvar to disable bullet tracers (they don't match with your real bullets anyway). When you play jaymod it's not possible, and it's very annoying.

 

So, there is no such thing as 'bullet lag', there is only 'lag'. There can't be a higher delay only for shooting, all your commands are likewise delayed.

 

But with client prediction you don't notice it. Bullets are not predicted, because the trajectory end point is modified randomly by the server (the infamous bullet spread), and because it is the server who decides if you hit or not, so neither the tracers nor the hitsounds+hit marks can be predicted by the client.

 

To make a long story short, I think it's perfectly normal if your ping is high.

This. This is what I understand with "bullet lag"(=sometimes I can see my own tracers). Usually on "normal ping" servers(Jaynod) I don't see bullet tracers, but sometimes I do. And dunno if its placebo or not, but my acc really goes down when there is this "bullet lag". I know that in reality the "bullet" hits instantly when I shoot and the tracers are just extra visuals. But coinsidence or not, its somehow related my acc ":D". I mean, without tracers I can perform some godlike tracking/aiming(acc 55-65, sometimes even 70; http://img43.imageshack.us/img43/112/g2pradarstenover72acc.png ), but when there is this "bullet lag", it gets crappier, acc being around 45-55 and it feels like my bullets are really delayed and I can't hit shit. Discuss.

My ping stays between 79-98 once in awhile I'll get lag spikes that jump my ping to 125-148 but after the spike pass my ping will return to normal.

If you think something is weird you can always record a demo... demos hold all the stream of data that the server sends to you, so it's possible to find out what exactly happened, otherwise I can just guess...

Some common sources of Lag that I have found:

 

1. If you use a shared/unsecure wireless internet connection and someone else is downloading. Your ping will often look normal, but your lag tells you otherwise.

 

2. Your computer is downloading updates without you knowing. Windows, Adobe, sometimes malware can do this also.

 

3. Hardware lag can cause a similar problem. If a virus scanner is running, if you have too many programs running, like messengers, music players, open browsers, these can also create lag.

 

Before blaming your cfg, make sure none of these items are your problem.
