I have done over 3 level already, but never ever seen something like this! In the first room there is a heavy shootout, and if You die, these legs will dingeling in the roof when You come out from the small starter room. A reason for this is ofcourse that I have to place the Characters under the ground because otherwise they are flying when spawn.. (Have a room over this room.) But they shourld not spawn before Im heading the stairs. When I die and respawn Myself, how can I stop objects from spawning?!! Is there any way to fix this?

Mr Love Lol....All things aside it does look very funny Those legs !

Why are they flying off ? They are dynamic characters, correct?

One thing, was this a custom made segment ( the ceiling & floor) or a stock one?
Because dynamic entities will fly off when placed "into" a static objects, is your floor a "static" entity floor ???

Your using a trigger to span them, right... which script?
And yes, they shouldn't spawn just because you die

Yes, I do it all the time, mainly with something like a decals "appear" script... ( decals don't like to be spawned..sometimes )
There are just certain times when "spawning" an entity just wont work for whatever reason.... So I "activate" the appear script.

But maybe I dont need to do that because I only have one life in the game. The question is if I save in the middle of a firebattle, will the savefile cause this problem?

Mr Love I really don't know if it would cause that? You could do a build and test it out ?
I personally have never had that happen yet, even with a save during a gun battle
The player always spawns at last "check point" and the npc characters are still on top
of the segments.

Whats cause this is that I place the Characters so low, because otherwise they will fly(!) Its a bug in beta 18, beta 17 didnt have this problem, but in "17" objects disappeard instead..
Also B.I doesnt have this bug, B.I has an even worse bug: You can shoot thru static objects(!)
So I stay with beta 18. I just need to change the "Y" value in the .fpe file...
BTW I posted You A PM

I really don't get that with any of my static entities, are these custom made entities?
If you can send me one that you can shot thru..

Yep, I tried to hide behind a house (Made by Me) that was static, But I was shot down! Same house in beta18 and the collision worked out perfect...
(Its a CGtrader model, so I cant really upload it.)

Mr Love I see....No problem then. Static entities should have "bullet collision on" by default? That is strange
