Option to disable pyrovision?
I would really like the option to disable pyrovision, not because I don't like it, but it makes me lag. I really like my Rainblower and Lollichop, but I can't use it if it effects the map because it makes everything laggy. I've noticed that on custom maps that the Rainblower can't effect, I don't lag with it. I would love it if we could disable pyrovision, or if the lag could be fixed.

The only way, look like it´s only by taking off the pyrovision googles.

You can't disable it, but there are some options to make it a bit faster on older PC's.
Go into Adv. Options and disable Dynamic Pyrovision.

Uhh. Pyrovision's never always on. You can get it off simply by unequiping the pyrovision goggles.

Yeah, thats what I think. In reality, taking Pyrovision off will not affect your inventory. You can still use Rainblower and Lollichop, but Rainblowers deadly taunt will look different. It's just a cosmetic change.

Wearing Pyrovision-related items automatically turns on Pyrovision.

Oops, I also seem to have forgot about that too. Well, the rainblower and lollichop are just reskins of the stock weapons, so it doesn't matter.

(Rainblower's taunt is the best one in game, through)

I know it can't be disabled, I am suggesting they add an option to do so. Did I post this in the wrong place? I will look into the options to see what I can do.

Also, I don't have an older PC. I just got done building a new hex-core. I can play games like BF3 really well. It's just the pyrovision that makes me lag when it effects the map. When on a custom map, the only things my pyrovision can effect are sound effects and particles, which don't make me lag at all. I really don't understand why it makes me lag when it effects the map :/

I know, but I really love those re-skins and would like to use them on any map without lagging :/

I think you are referring to poor performance/framerate, its probably best not to use "lag" to describe that since it usually refers to a network issue.

Oh. Well I guess so, sure.

hate to bring an old topic back to life, but just find the pyrovision prefab and delete the attributes section on your item_game schema
