Ok here comes my one :

First of all, yes it works.


Second, a thing i want to suggest which already got said but still : Switch the downtime with the respawntime. It kinda feels like that the incapacitated animation/sound/everything just suddenly stops when the 1 second is over. Rather make the incapacitated time longer with a nice dead shader and reduce the respawn time to 1 second.
I was going to suggest this as well.

But then I have to listen to that awful gurgling sound for 15 seconds. No thanks.

About the ragdoll thing: yes it works. It really makes you feel like going down when killed. Only (minor) downside is that death comes more all of a sudden than before, at least it feels like that for me.

I don't think that swapping the mandowntime with the spawntime would work with the new spawnwaves.  Also, what about people who get killed by explosions?  They would go straight to spawntime, which would be 0, and thus straight back to life.

That suggestion is full of win.

I do not believe we can switch it with the spawntime because of the spawnwaves. If you are in mandowntime, you'll miss the spawnwave IIRC. A 2-3 second mandowntime would be the max, and should allow for your camera to hit the ground.

Well then cant we try to max the mandown time as long as possible and add a fading death shader that that fades right into the "really dead" spawntime ?

Not possible. In vanilla Bf2 there is a system that is used as an emergency hatch for possible farming. If you are incapacitated, you can force yourself out by swapping gear (to prevent constant medic revive/being shot) I assume this is probably hard coded .

If you would do this with respawn time = 0, this means people can get "out" of incapacitated and instant respawn by changing gear.

The fix works most of the time, but sometimes you see the going down animation and after that the ragdoll flys up like a rocket. But that is only very rare and not comparable to the time without mandowntime.
All in all, it feels more smooth, both ways, the sending end of the gun and the reciving, seeing players going down.
We need to be able, to throw Thermos out of Spotterplanes.

I like the 1sec, i think maybe 2 or 3 would be cool though!

It's a server setting.  Right now, the recommended (relevant) server setting is 15 second spawn time, 0 second "mandown" time.  This fix is simply setting the the spawn time to 14 or 13 seconds and then setting the  "mandown" time to 1 or 2 seconds.  You're still out of combat for the same amount of time, but since BF2 handles "Incapacitated" ragdolls better than "Dead" ragdolls, you don't get the flying corpses.  It has the added benefit of adding a bit of immersion as you see your viewpoint fall to the ground before looking at your dead body.

Theoretically, all servers could set this up right now and fix it.
