monster telefrags

Postby cccp_leha » Sun Sep 28, 2003 6:53 pm

When the player is telefragged by a monster (i.e. MAP30), the death message says that the player was killed by the monster (burned by an imp, etc.)

But he wasn't burned by an imp. Something like "%s was telefragged" would be more appropriate, I think..

Yeah, what chris said. Don't really want to be picky, although I can trace the following: burned - spontaneous combustion - instant explosion :)

the only way i think this would be a bug is if the monster in question didn't have a long-range attack(example: demon), because it would simply print "player died."

It's not a /quite/ a telefrag. It's more like "an actor spawned at the same
position" :? however, even though monsters normally DO NOT telefrag anything,
this is teh exception.

I would assume you'd get the message for the monster in question, In this case - "player was bit by a demon".

No, I checked. It said "Player died." with the PE, demon, and spectre.

Fixed for 2.0.48/2.1.0. Now you get a pretty generic "Bob was telefragged."

If your name isn't Bob, then it will show "Nanami was telfragged" instead. :)
