0003075Zandronum[All Projects] Bugpublic2017-04-19 09:172017-05-04 13:48
Assigned ToTorr Samaho 
PlatformOSOS Version
Product Version3.0-beta 
Target Version3.0Fixed in Version3.0 
Summary0003075: Latest 3.0 build removes the ability to use SetActivatorToTarget() to an item.
DescriptionI use SetActivatorToTarget() for items in my mod in order to simulate a more realistic pick-up system. You need to look at an item, be in range, and press use on it in order to start scripts which will give you a virtual version of this item. This system however does not work anymore since the latest build, because it seems like SetActivatorToTarget() doesn't like items anymore, which it did do before.
Steps To ReproduceSummon zombieman2. When pressing use on its hitbox, it should say you pressed the zombieman.

Summon thingy. No matter where you press it, it will say thingy not found, because its hitbox can not be found.
Additional InformationStarts happening in Zandronum 3.0-alpha-170416-0710
This did not happen in zandronum-3.0-r170402-2027-26a565b-windows which can be found here: [^]

I would like to mention that setting it solid does not work either.

EDIT: This does actually work when not using decorate, oddly enough. I have a different function that displays the item's name, which works fine.

Works fine for me in 170416-0710. I have to take a tiny step back after summoning thingy, but then it's found. The behavior in 2.1.2 is identical.

Sorry, this is supposed to be done online.
I asked Watakid to update the summary, but he hasn't responded yet.

I tested it online. Works fine for me. Did you test this with the official binaries? Which OS did you use for client and server?

I've done some research, and it turns out it stops working when my ping is very high (I tested with 300 ping). This seems to be the problem, because with a low ping, or in a local server, the bug indeed did not exist. This bug not happen in previous builds though.

I tested with TSPG, using their binary and the stock one, and AUSDOOM.

I'd say it's quite unlikely that 170416-0710 and 170402-2027-26a565b behave differently in this regard.

Can you reproduce the problem reliably, e.g. with a ping emulator locally? If so, what are the exact steps to reproduce the problem?

I used 170402-2027-26a565b and 170416-0710 for the same host, and the bug happened when it switched to the newer one.

Although to be honest they failed to properly compile a build before, and perhaps this might be the case too. I didn't come to think of it, but that might very well be the case now that I see it happends on AUSDOOM.

On top of that, I tested with somebody with a low ping (< 40) in the same server, and he couln't take an item either.

Big chance it failed to compile again. I supose I'll ask him how he compiled Zandronum. His server runs on Linux, if it matters.

Ok, so you suspect that it's independent of the ping, but dependent on the server? Can you confirm this and report back?

DoomJoshuaBoy told me his cluster uses a build compiled using [^]
I'm guessing the bug happends only when ran on a Linux server, but I'm not experienced with this so I could be wrong.
I don't know anyone else who could host a linux server to try this sadly.

The build from [^] actually seems to break the feature inside the example pk3. I thing Thing_SetSpecial doesn't work anymore in this case. Since this is actually a new issue, shall I make another ticket instead?

Base on #17385, I found a problem with parsing the DECORATE flag USESPECIAL, which may explain the problems you observed. This parsing problem should be fixed now.

That seems to have fixed it. Regarding the actual ticket, I am unable to find someone who could host another Linux server for now. Hopefully I might find someone later.

FYI, the bug I fixed may also have caused the different behavior under Windows and Linux. So if we are lucky, the Linux problems you observed are also fixed now.

After testing, it seems the issue is fixed on Linux servers aswell.
