[refactoring3] Redneck: Enemy gets stuck on the back of the truck

E1L1:

When the old coot gets stuck on the back of the truck, he does not properly die, and instead can be dragged all around the level as thus:

Does this always happen now? This effect is nothing new in general, it can even be seen with the DOS EXE on occasion.

It seems like I can get this to happen reliably by i_timescaling to 10 and waiting at the spawn. It seems to be the issue is he does not actually take damage from the truck despite playing the blood and gib animations, either that or maybe he takes so much damage that his health rolls over.

I've seen this happen many times in the past. It's really nothing new. Gonna have to see if it is easier to reproduce now, but ultimately this is a typical result of CON's shittiness.

In all my recent tests on RR I have seen this only once, which I consider normal. It's just a poorly written CON script that cannot really be fixed on the engine side without replacing it.

Here's something interesting:

RRRA has a fix for this that at least stops the endless gibs - but due to being too careful with enabling features across games it was not active in normal RR.
I just removed that check so hopefully this problem will be gone now.
