Default Sacrifice effect

You all know sacrifice. You hit yourself in the head with a lightning and 18 seconds later you explode. LOL! However it hasn't been like this always. Originally the fuse was 20 seconds. Then it was changed to 22 seconds. And finally to 18 seconds. But like with pretty much every single change S2 has made they forgot to change any stuff relevant to the change.

Sacrifice has a visual glow effect showing up 2 seconds before BOOM. But when the fuse was changed, the effect wasn't. The effect was set to show up 2 seconds before blowing up i.e. after 18 seconds. However since this is where you blow up now you don't get to see it. Fixing it is easy. So easy that I even I could do it in a few minutes. And I did!!!

How to install:
  • Download this
  • Place the downloaded file in C:\\Program files\Savage 2 - A tortured soul\game\
  • Start Savage 2 and blow yourself up

I noticed that. Dabbled with fixing it on my mod, then decided it was unnecessary and really didn't add anything to speak of, even visually.

This is not the first instance where my opinion has apparently differed greatly from the majority.

well its like "would be nice to have the same chance to spot a sac earyl regardless of the graphics card".
but in reality i always catch them soon enough

i changed the effect once so it turn red to the end but then i thought thats cheat and switched back to default.
