I'm having trouble dieing.

Post by Agent Pyke » Wed Mar 09, 2005 6:44 am

Ya, that's what I said. I had thsi happen twice today. I was ont wo different servers. I was at close range and someone was shooting at me with a GM. I didn't die. Afterwards, i of course killed them. Then the first time this happened, I picked up a thief and could nto see a thief come out but it would come out because I stole a ST. The second time the otehr man had Thief and I didn't see his thief come out btu he stole my SR and shot me tehe xact same time. So, each time I didn't die and didn't see a thief afterwards. (Once I died I could see thief fine.)

Is this a freaking wierd bug or what? What is wrong?

I think you might have a lag problem. that's what it seems like to me. If this happens again type /lagstats and see what your lag is. :?

No, I'm the chosen one! That happend to me, I charged someone with a GM, and he hit me, but I didn't die! I killed him, and then checked lagstats, and my lag was 100-200. It didn't make much sense.

This was dealt with in another thread just recently. GM has a "minimum" range that is similar to the minimum arming range of a real gm. If you get within that range, the GM can't kill you.

Not seeing thief "shots" is a lag issue. That happens a bit at 150+ ms.
