teh imp gibbed teh zombie?

I was looking at MLdB's wad in the editing section and it so happened that a zombieman got in the way of an imp and was killed. What surprised me was that the zombieman got gibbed (exploded?). I have never seen an imp's fireballs do that in 6 year :) A bug?

That can happen when the Zombie's health has been rather low before the hit. Gibbing occurs when the 'health' after death is smaller than the negative of the spawn health. For the Zombie it means <-20 as its spawn health is 20. The maximum damage from an Imp fireball is 24 so there is no reason why this should not happen although it is extremely unlikely. You just got lucky seeing such an event. :wink:
