ACS Spawn function issue

Post by Major Cooke »

Since the introduction of CheckReplacement, this is not counted for with ACS's Spawn(Spot) functions in particular, resulting in some rather humorous mass spawning of all one single type when it's not a RandomSpawner.

My mod in particular uses a complex advancement system where monsters of greater difficulty tiers spawn in based on item progression so CheckReplacement in an event handler is a must.

DLevelScript::DoSpawn() calls PClassActor::GetReplacement() function which in turn calls EventManager::CheckReplacement().
Do you have a sample to test this on?
