I experimented the same problem with the latest testing build for 2.0

We don't really have a way to determine when execution reaches client-sided scripting, so these line specials cannot determine when to wait for the server for packets for changing fade and color.

I have a prototype which tries to track this by setting a global variable when client-side ACS is executed or when a client-handled actor executes its state functions. I do wonder, is there a better way to deal with this?

The design of our whole client side ACS script logic never took into account that clients call ACS script via DECORATE. Before doing anything about the issue reported here, we should decide how we want to handle ACS scripts called by DECORATE on the client in general.
