I am a marius troller, I join games to murder my team mates in survival.lua, I am just checking that there's no protection against this so i can benefit from it more than the lulz i already get out of it.

Thank you for reading my post.

You remind me of that old team killer named Snoopy. No lulz for you.

Hey, check this out. I was playing survival offline on the map, Little Red Pill, Deluxe, by epstein, when this monster got stuck. I was unable to continue to the next round because of this. I thought it was unusual, so I just wanted to post this screenshot.

That isn't a script error, that is an engine bug. Sometimes corpses can get stuck in narrower gaps shorter openings like that. I've gotten screwed on Kill Them All maps before due to that as well.

Yea, I didn't know whether it was a script error or an engine error, but I was just posting it for other people to see. Sorry if this wasn't really the appropriate topic to post this in, but I couldn't find a topic about unusual screenshots (Screenshot Oddities would have been good except that it was a contest topic that was over), and I didn't want to start a new topic.

There is a new version out with an improved interface and a waiting period between rounds
Its just like the story of the grasshopper and the octopus. All year long the grasshopper kept burying acorns for winter while the octopus mooched off his girlfriend and watched TV. Then the winter came, and the grasshopper died, and the octopus ate all his acorns and also he got a racecar. Is any of this getting through to you?

Here's another thing that i don't see too often. This happened while I was playing survival online (again, I know the script didn't cause this). That fighter shot like 10 bolts at me! I think it was because he was on that platform. Anyway, just wanted to share this with you!

Yeah that happened to me on Infinite Rhapsody once, except it was a Trooper firing grenades!
Love Marathon, and also play Doom on modern source ports? You might like these skins!

Ok, here it is Treellama. You will need Einheldenleben 1.2 (hey that was by you! :)), and latest version of survival. It happens near the beginning of round 4.

Yea, I remember that bug from the old days, but it's not so common now. I think they called it the Ketchup Bug, where if a Fighter tried to fire just before a platform falls or rises, and then he fires as it does, that happens. I wouldn't think that it has anything to do with the script.

I'll take any videos that reproduce the problem. Yours is fine, but one that doesn't use Survival.lua would be even more awesome.

A new version is up at simplici7y
Added in this version is a polling system where once 50% of the players hit ready(the mic key) the break ends and the next round begins. There is still a time limit on the breaks. I also added a fusion bolt that hovers over the players bodies so they are easy to see and revive. Support for base survival was also added based on hastur's suggestion.

hey megabyte, is it possible to release a version that allows dead players to toggle player view like you have in your spectator script? That would be very awesome.

Also, was there a particular reason you decided not to include hunters, droids, assimilated bobs, and cyborgs like they do in XBL survivor? Cyborgs might be too much of a pain but the others won't be too bad imo.
