stealing life with radius damage.

Post by Ultimate Freedoomer »

Hi. In this mod I'm working on, the Scepter of Souls replaces the Pistol (in homage to Strange Aeons). For my version, there are no "weapon level 2" powerup items in the mod, so the Scepter's powered mode serves as its alternate fire here. For the sake of gameplay, I changed the life-stealing function to use a_custompunch's life-stealing (the death state setup is otherwise unchanged). The issue that I'm having is that secondary's life-stealing function & damage dealing isn't working. Here's the code:

Code: Select all

Actor ScepterOfSouls : DoomWeapon replaces pistol 11111
