View Full Version : Spectator View Problem

I've noticed that when I view through the Spectator mode, the I.R.I.S members sometimes keep appearing and disappearing from view when they move around to certain parts of the map that are seen through the Spectator cameras. Any reason why?

This has been noticed, but I don't remember what the Devs said about it. I THINK they said it'd be fixed.

dissapearing iris members has to do with visleafs. where you died while as a marine stays your current visleaf, so if you get too far away from it on the spec cameras, the engine will not draw marines, props, etc. visleafs are a way of saving system resources, as your computer will not draw textures or materials that are not visible from your visleaf. for further explination, enter this console command while playing

mat_leafvis 1

^ the above draws your current visleaf in game, quite distracting!.

But this also happens when the I.R.I.S members are RIGHT near the camera. I've noticed that this usually happens when the members enter different areas of the map (that correspond to the area name change in the bottom of the HUD when playing).

the game considers your current visleaf where you died. if you view a camera in the area you died them things will be visible.

Ah, I get it. So, if I use that cvar, then it should allow me to see everything through the spectator cameras?
