noobboots:

My old IGN was zNoob. I was the one who made this chart :O.

Example:

Enemy 3/4 SD away. Wind is at 12 against.

80 - (12 * 0.6) = 73.2 -> 73

3/4 is 6/8, thus its the 6th value going in the increment of 1/8ths

3.5 bars, but take off some since angle was 73.2.

Final Result: 73 2.45

Fuck, its 3.45. Dropped 0.05 due to that extra 0.2 angle.

My bad.

I wanna know how accurate the 0 wind is. Reply back here when you're done playing around with it.

so im reading this over again cause im trying to understand mage gravity more in game, and i realize that youre partially wrong here.

80 - (12 * 0.6) = 72.8 not 73.2

at 3.5 bars, you said it would adjust to 73 3.45.

if the angle was really supposed to be 72.8 you would end up rounding up(and here i assume by rounding up you do lose some distance as you said) to 73 anyways, and im going to estimate that you would need to add around an additional .10 power to make up for that lost distance, from what i recall on basic rules its .10 power for every angle for wind like this though i am probably thinking of boomer. in anycase,

73 3.6 is what i would gather would be the proper adjustment right?

In anycase, your post helped me a lot by breaking it down and helped me test it or whatever - what i need help on mostly is working on basic bjsl and angle adjustments with HIGHER angles usually shooting full power in higher winds-im pretty good on visual power adjustments based off fixed formulas like this. however 75% of the time i guess the wrong angle and end up shooting 1 off lol.

please note i will be testing this later on and will probably respond eventually.


so let me try this again. the enemy is 1/2 screen away, giving me the fixed power value of 2.85 in 0 wind.

wind is 15, NNE, giving me the variable of .3 based on this chart.

so then 80+(15*0.3)=84.5

round up to 85, and adjust the power of 2.85 by probably around .2 (probably a bit less) to make up for the half angle. when rounding angles UP, you always have to make up for lost distance which forces you to ADD power, when rounding down, you make up for gained distance by subtracting power.

ive done most of this kind of calculation on the spot or a bit before my turn, i think its much more useful information in high winds.

(not that hes even active or anyone really cares)
