Polyobjects and Crushing Corpses

Post by Enjay »

Can PolyObjects be made to crush corpses in the same way that regular doors do? I can't seem to make it happen.

Even the crushing type of PolyObject doesn't do it (which I don't want to use anyway because I don't want the player to be hurt by doors).

I made a patch for that long ago but the feature got hidden behind an obscure MAPINFO flag.

That sounds exactly like what I want... but I can't get it to work. :oops:

I take it that I'm just meant to add Grinding_Polyobj to the map definition?

If so, it doesn't seem to do it, at least with how I have my poly's set up. Test example attached with a nice wide door that it's easy to summon bad guys into the path of and kill them.

Must have been broken at some point and nobody noticed because, well, it's been hidden behind an obscure MAPINFO setting that nobody ever uses.

Polyobject crushing is handled in FPolyObj::ThrustMobj. That function, however, checks if the actor has the SHOOTABLE flag or is a player. And actors lose the SHOOTABLE flag on death, so that'll never actually trigger for corpses.

OK, well if it's meant to work but doesn't. I'll raise a bug report so that it doesn't get lost.
