Summary0003187: Server-triggered clientside script ordering is randomly messed up in multiplayer
DescriptionIf a server launches a lot of clientside scripts, the order they are executed in on the client becomes randomized, whereas scripts are always launched in the same order when networking is not involved (singleplayer, serverside, clientside).
Steps To ReproduceRun the wad on a server. It constantly launches a clientside script.

The script prints a message when script execution order deviates from the expected.

Use the "count" serverside cvar to set how many scripts to launch per tic. Default is 1. Setting it higher causes a lot of script ordering errors. But script ordering errors can happen even with 1 script per tic.
Additional InformationVarious SendString implementations depend on whether this behavior is a bug or normal.

Edward-san corrected the type.

Is the behavior any different in 2.1.2?

2.1.2 is broken too. But it needs a separate test wad, which I uploaded, as passing ACS_ExecuteWithResult arguments from the server to the client is broken in 2.1.2.

And the new test wad also works on 3.0.
