Goomer added a comment to T80711: Easy way to significantly improve the clunky action menu.

I have a few ideas how to improve the action-menu and some menus around it.
The use-key could spawn (and close) a little menu in the middle of the screen that is to be controlled either via mouse-cursor or scroll-wheel (which will not open the menu) whenever multiple world-actions are possible. Self-actions could be off-loaded to the inventory, and the squad controls need to have its own menu, simply because of its many options, similar to the inventory. That way the first few numerical keys (and the scroll-wheel) can be used for changing weapons (including put). Objects that have options and are being looked at need to be highlighted somehow.

What needs to be done amongst other things is, to remove the abillity to accidentally "do" something because you either didnt know the menu was open, or you tab the use key numeral times because you're "in a fucking hurry".

A combination of both context-sensitive-action-button and a action-scroll-menu would work perfectly fine. Use context-sensitive-actions for time-critical stuff, such as dragging a person, and if you have the time to heal someone, then you also have the time to scroll.

I also think that the action-list should show-up in the center of the screen. But that's a personal opinion. And maybe have the object whose actions are highlighted in the scroll-menu be outlined, as suggested in the video.

Goomer added a comment to T80514: DX11 ERROR.

Device removed errors usually mean the device that is used to render the game is suddenly not available anymore.
It could be that the driver crashed (and recovered) or has turned off the device to reduce power consumption (i.e. on laptops).

What do you expect when these things fall to the ground almost perfectly upright? Looks fine to me.
The problem i'm having with this is, that explosions or bullets don't apply any force to ragdolls. Thus making them and their equipment always collapse in the same way if they're on even ground.

Sounds are ineed more important than animations. You clear buildings and shoot people in arma. So its common sense to at least add sounds to the doors.

As for animations: The "put" animation should be enough for a start.

Goomer added a comment to T77993: Absence detonation of explosive objects! (3 video).

Bullets, rockets or mines only explode if you throw them into a extremely hot fire for very long times. Some of them may even just burn to crisp.
If barrels explode and what will cause them to explode depends on the fluid. It is unlikey that anything in those cans will explode when hit by bullets.

Goomer added a comment to T77627: Keys pressed during Alt-Tab or Steam Overlay Opening are locked in.

Looks like the game doesn't get the time to recognize the tab-key-up event before minimizing. I've also noticed that hitting a key (up and down) between two frames (after one frame has finished drawing and before the next is drawn) is not caught. Which means that input is only monitored at certain times (bad, especially for mouse input).

This bug only seems to occur when prone. Going into your inventory while looking through the scope will also always block the view completely. Having NVGoggles equipped does not make a difference.

I think seperating the direction you look and the direction you move to, would properly account for innertia and not brake controls and make it feel like you're steering a 500 pound bag of sand (negative mouse acceleration, brought to you by satan himself). Sort of like as if you're running on ice? Very much like GTA 4's character controls. Just don't fuck with the mouse-controls. Becuase that's where the fun ends.
