Remember some guns aren't vey accurate, the trooper rifle is horrible with its accuracy. It's all over the place, especially in rapid fire mode.

are you sure were both talking about JK2 (Jedi Knight 2: Jedi Outcast)?
There is no "gameplay" section under setup.
But dynamiccrosshair removed the snapping atleast, and there might acctually not be autoaim, it might be this crosshair offset that is making things feel wierd.

I took a screenshot of not moving the mouse, shooting 5 shots with the blaster pausing between each shot, they all land on the same spot, offset from the crosshair:


Anyone else getting something similar?
Thinking it might be the fact that it is a third person game with first person view, which I suppose could cause it, or just the fact that Im running a custom widescreen resolution, which might make the UI a bit confused..

It could be because you altered the FOV. Your reticle seems stretched...

The 3rd person and 1st person mode is native so I dout thats the issue...

Man, those small critters in the mine.. went a lot of ammo into hitting them, hehe.
Yeah I guess its likely the custom res, FOV or a combination of that.
I just went with the settings recommended at widescreen gamer, 1920x1080 and 115 FOV.

For the small critters I use the stun rod...

Try 90 FOV, that's what I got when I calculated using their tool.

I got 106.270273206 from that, from 4:3 to 16:9 and I picked Quake III (which uses 90 for default FOV).
Ill try that out, if thats no good Ill try 90.
thanks for the tip
