It was one of the things I loved most about the game. I was so good at it that no matter how far or near, if it could reach, the first shot was a little head, the second was a little behind and the third and most others consecutively were all on target. I would be shooting boars (of were they small bears...) in the nearest open field map (forget the name) and would hardly ever have to back track. Yes it took a lot of arrows, but it was fun. After many years I come back and the bow has dramatically changed and not for the better. I understand I am level one right now or two. But the bow hardly goes more than a few meters even after I hold the mouse button for the new bar to load at the bottom of the screen and even raise the angle higher and it hardly goes at all. Also the targeting feels way off. Like I have to aim with the left cuff of the shirt than the actual bow it self and it is consistent in that aim with in reason. In other words I am not aiming down or over the shaft but using my shirt cuff. Why is that? A model inconsistency or that is what actually happened to the bow? I am sorry if I come off a bit brash, but I downloaded the mod again, even bought HL1 just to play this (among other mods to be fair, but mostly this one) and I find the bow completely off. I understand before you could hit targets far out, much farther than without a bow, but it was relatively weak (Still is apparently as it takes MANY arrows just to down a rat.) compared to the later game melee weapons, especially swords. It is very disheartening.
