Geno + Burrow = ?

Post by Tanner » Sat Jun 24, 2006 10:54 pm

What happens when you have a Geno flag and you run over a enemy tank who has burrow?

Great, now I'm going to have more insomia through the night. You just made me cut my caffiene intake!

Seriously, since you have possesion of the flag, I think it might kill the whole team. Not sure though.

You kill the burrow guys - that's it. :(

I guess that means burrow becomes anti-geno? :D

no..if a member of your team is geno-ed, you still die.

but, the question was that if you have burrow and a geno flag-holder runs you over, does the rest of your team die?
that question hasn't been answered.

As far as I can tell, kill "types" are determined by shot types. When someone is steamrolled (with BU or by SR), there is no shot, and thus the kill will not show as coming from G or SR or whatever the killer is holding.

This caused me some headache when coding the killLimits plugin. ;)

So, my guess would be no, runnnig over a BU with G would not kill the whole team.
Optimism is just a milder alternative to denial.

It doesn't kill the whole team sadly. I thouht about it before, and tried it. It doesn't work. :(

Trust me, many times I have had geno and simply wanted to run over a burrow guy and kill the whole team - but it doesn't work.

i think geno only is enabled through bullets, not running over things. try it, make a server with 3 bots, 2 red 1 blue (you), make burrow flag and geno, make the 2 bots just separte bzflag windows, make one have the burrow flag and just sit there doing nothing while you auto pilot the other window, then grab geno in main window and run over the standing still tank

or just grab a friend and try it...

Let me answer this question with a better question...

if you are on a 20 shot server and shoot 19 shots and grab Geno (before any of the shots die) do they become geno'd shots?

and if you fire that one last shot is it a geno shot?

No, Yes...


Here's the question of all time though...

Could you mod bzflag to say that all shots were geno?
(and I know the answer :-P)

Bot, this thread is as good as dead. the question posed has been answered.

BSpike..did you answer the first question yourself?
and I do believe that you can, though I wouldn't advise it..
