Bullet-Time (Slow-Motion)

An addon to provide a bullet-time effect, with graphical distortion, bullet visibility, and audio effects. It is implemented with a timeout and "recharge".

Fans of this mod: Please do comment with feedback with your suggestions, ideas for improvements, etc. I'd be happy to consider suggestions and make tweaks!

To use
Press Caps-Lock to enable/disable bullet-time. Watch the hint messages in the top-right to see when bullet-time recharges.

New Features:
- Optional "tracer-vision" feature, where all friendlies and enemies fire tracer rounds while in slow-motion. AI bullets also travel slower for increased immersion and reaction time. This feature can be disabled in the context menu during the first 10 seconds of gameplay.
- Auto-react feature now toggleable in the player context menu only for the first 10 seconds of gameplay (temporary solution).

Additional notes on the feature
- When in bullet-time, the player gets a temporary health boost
- Damage taken while in bullet-time does not impact the player when the effect ends (unless player killed in bullet-time).
- Player moves faster (relative to all other AI, players, objects) in bullet-time
- Player auto "reacts" and enter bullet-time when caught unaware by enemy fire
- NEW: Auto-react feature is now optional/selectable (can toggle on/off in the player context menu)
- NEW: Friendly and Enemy AI bullets travel slower in bullet-time - player can now react more readily to enemy fire as as tracers woosh past (tracers recommended)

Please do comment on any feature you like or dislike (and why) so that I can make improvements!

Lol sorry franzenkerlin, you'd think I'd know my own mod:P. Actually I implimented God Mode due to a request from some players who wanted to be able to activate bullettime without a time limit. So it enables indefinite bullettime. Nothing to do with the auto-react feature.

Ah right the name might be misleading. It's the auto-react feature where you go into slow-mo when the enemy catches you unaware with gunfire.

quick question... what does god mode do?

Hey franzenkerlin, really glad you enjoy it - thanks for the feedback! Unfortunately I don't have a feature that adds the key to the game's controls menu/settings --> the feature is basically permanently triggered by capslock key. I recall looking for solutions for that and not finding a concise answer... This is something I might look back into if I find some time (busy developing other content atm).

Great work. Really what i was looking for. Just quick Q: I dont seem to find the designated key in the controls menu. I want to set a diffirent key for this actiion. Is it non editable? or Im not looking in the right place.

Nah, unfortunately time scaling is incompatible with multiplayer.

Will this ever have Zeus Compat?

I am thinking you provided this mod a negative rating (correct me if I am wrong). I tested this mod thoroughly on my computer and rooted out all the bugs I could find, but have never seen this behavior. Given that I am a solo developer and do not have access to a group of testers nor a variety of different PCs and setups to test on (other than a few friends), I cannot cover every possible case that could result in undesired behavior. You are the first to experience this as far as I am aware... If I have some time over the holidays I will have a look over my code and see if I can find what may be causing this issue.
