Try with zandronum 3.0 beta. It works there for me.

<walk of shame>
Uuh... yeah just re-tested and it actually works on 2.1.2 too :D
I tested and wrote this report in the spring but didn't file it back then. Now I just filed it because I thought I had already tested it with care but turns out I didn't or I have forgotten something important.
</walk of shame>

I will have to test if the keys actually work on doors or objects. I encountered the "bug" first time in Valiant (

Tested now more. For example on MAP11 of valiant.wad ( the skull keys are not shared among players.

I don't know if the fault lies solely within this specific wad and if this is out of the scope of Zandronum. If it is, please close.

Quoting Dark-Assassin from the aforementioned thread (

"I feel that anything that is or inherits a key or quest item should be shared."

Confirmed that with Valiant it still happens with 3.0 beta.

Valiant's DEHACKED turns the skull keys into special dehacked pickups, which are internally not keys. Not sure what to do here.
