[Fixed][SVN R4165] Strife: Player's Flamethrower Don't Hurt

When a human target is in its burning death state, the burning actor is supposed to hurt the player and other (human?) actors within a certain radius. It seems like the radius is very small or non-existent in Vavoom. Edit: This seems to happen with the player using a flamerthrower on its target. It seems to work correctly for targets burned by a Crusader.

If it works for the Crusader it should work the same for the players flamethrower, since they both call the same death routines <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) -->. So there's no bug here.

In theory, it should work, but reality is that this behavior is not applied to the Player's Flamethrower.

It's being applied, try to use the flamethrower with the acolytes that teleport on the last map (just before the alien ship), if you do it correctly you will be setting more than one acolyte in fire, I've tested this myself before just posting the reply <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) -->.

Well, I'm testing map02 and map07 and I'm burning acolytes and rebels left and right and... well none of them burn me. Only the Crusader's flamethrower is causing it. I'm not sure what's wrong, but I'm using the latest SVN build, so whatever I guess.

I thought you meant it didn't damaged other enemies, but now I see that you are referring to the player <!-- s:oops: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_redface.gif" alt=":oops:" title="Embarassed" /><!-- s:oops: --> . Does this behavior extends to the Crusader?

The Crusader's flamethrower seems fine. It's just the Player's flamethrower that doesn't cause the flaming targets to hurt anyone around it.
