How do you become good at bounds?

You don't, you get progressively worse.

Are you a troll?
You get good at bounding by practicing, but there is no point. The bounding community is slowly dying along with the mapping community.

That would only make you good at BT2 :P

Just practice alot on different maps but it can take quite awhile to get good at bounds.

Beat Blu-lit Bound, with the expansion. You may save, but you must not skip levels. Only then will you be sufficient.

If you want to get good at bounds, start with the easy ones like Heaven Bound.

Or, if you want some bounds with actual variety, play Mario Adventure Bound. It isn't like your typical bound that only has explosions.

Easier != necessarily good practice. I found that, when I was new to Halo, I could plow through situations that troubled me on Heroic ( hey, I suck at FPSes >.> ) after playing Legendary for even a few minutes. While too much challenge can be bad practice when it's to the degree that one doesn't survive at all, this generally doesn't apply to Bounds.
Furthermore, the difference in difficulty is one that's detrimental to abilities in any other speed-setting. Response times are, proportionately, different, and a lot of bounding involves figuring out how early to click to get one's unit to move at just the right frame.

Actually, unit speed increase is greater than the trigger speed increase when speed is increased. So playing on fastest makes bounds easier. (It actually makes some bounds impossible to play them on slower speeds.)
You could simply train with people you know on Bounds

I really can't bound at all.

Just Here For The Pie

A friend of mine made a website with a million bounds on it.
http://www.thekeytokilling.com/bounds.htm

Have a go at some of them. There's going to be a couple where you can not play them, or you can not play with anyone but yourself.

Even a bound of mine is in there.. One of my first maps, try and find it. :D

You better hurry up and download as many as you can, he can't pay for the site anymore. Daky's parents took his internet away. Plus he can't pay for the site anymore.

The rest of the bounders are at Angelfarto.com. All the real players quit long ago...kind of a shame.

TheHappy115 -- such as things like Center View work differently on online play (instant on online while single moves the screen slowly and pauses)
[08:52 pm]
TheHappy115 -- I had played spellsword on Remastered roughly 3 - 4 years and it worked fine so not sure why it doesn't work now. Big Rips. I know there is some form of trigger that detects whether its online or not but I imagine it has something to due with latency

Butch -- prob some weird character on a string somewhere or something dumb like that
[2022-5-23. : 9:50 pm]
Ultraviolet -- It's weird indeed, not really sure what is so special about Spellsword that causes it to react differently on Remastered, usually EUDs are the cause of things like that
[2022-5-23. : 5:35 pm]
Zoan -- I haven't played in like 2 years so maybe something changed I don't know about
[2022-5-23. : 5:35 pm]
Zoan -- No-Name-Needed-II
No-Name-Needed-II shouted: Zoan No idea if anything changed.. I've made several maps that push TMOANC to the limit and they are still working.. 3 causes of it I've narrowed down are -Too many islands which some terrain on certain tilesets can create micro islands on cliff edges with basic isometric.. -Too many changes in elevation from high to mid to low ground.. -And too many tiles from certain doodads that block tank fire..
Any clue as to why a map which would previously work fine on past patches would now suddenly not work on the current remastered patch?
[2022-5-23. : 5:34 pm]
Zoan -- I'll try Butch's suggestion of running in 32-bit, maybe that will fix it?
[2022-5-23. : 5:34 pm]
Zoan -- Oh_Man
Oh_Man shouted: Did martiss' link not work?
It crashes as it does when you use EUD's incorrectly - like it closes starcraft and has the error window pop up with a ticket to send to Blizzard. I know it's not EUDs though since obviously spellsword doesn't use any, so IDK what it is.
