0002748Zandronum[All Projects] Bugpublic2016-06-05 05:472018-04-20 07:09
Assigned ToEdward-san 
PlatformMicrosoftOSWindowsOS VersionXP/Vista/7
Product Version3.0-beta 
Target Version3.1Fixed in Version3.1 
Summary0002748: Changset 9556:54c5571372c0 Isn't supposed to affect A_GunFlash, but it does.
DescriptionZDoom introduced a change that makes the Muzzle Flashes for the stock weapons use 2 tics, to mimic vanilla Doom behavior, however, it wasn't supposed to affect A_GunFlash, which allows one to make 1-tic flashes.

When Zandronum introduced these changes, it got fucked up and affects A_GunFlash too, breaking some weapons in mods considerably. (No muzzle flash showing, or screwing up when codepointers fire.)

the 'repeated flash state' fix was disabled here: [^]

due to causing a weapon sync regression, as seen here: [^]

*sigh* Fuck me, always something.

Hopefully it can be fixed without disabling it soon. Quite a few recently created mods break because of this.

Striker, could you upload an example with the A_GunFlash problem? I need to test the fix for ticket 0002607.

Yeah, give me a little bit, and I'll put one together.

Ok, the patch provided in 0002607:0018845 seems to work fine with the provided wad, both offline and online, but we need more tests to find out if anything else is broken.

I got to test this and even with the conditions mentioned in 0002607:0018833 the example wad clearly works with the fix (and doesn't without).
On that note, I don't think we should wait further before pulling these changes, the kind of testing Torr asks for here (i.e. real world/general testing) should ideally be provided by more frequent beta releases and not delay merges IMO.

I added the patch.

Just to clarify: I was not asking for real world testing to be done before the patch can be pulled. I was merely asking whether such testing already has been done to get an impression on which kind of testing baseline I can rely on to decide whether to pull.

If someone can link me a build with these changes, I can test them.

I've got the latest build of 3.1 from here: [^]

I've stress-tested this pretty hard in a server with 15 bots, and I haven't had any weapon desyncs. Also, weapon flashes now behave properly both online and offline in my mods.
