Summary0000373: Death in survival results in odd behavior
DescriptionThis has been around for awhile.
When a player dies in regular survival, they won't leave a corpse behind.
If the class has a custom death state, however; It will leave a 'ghost' behind that will disappear when the player 'officially' spectates.

This issue is easily reproduced in all versions of WDI; Especially the latest versions that contain 'fake' bodies.

Will attach a screenshot soon.

Actually, this isn't specific to survival mode. If the last death frame is "TNT1 A -1", the PLAY A frame will be displayed instead.

While we're at it: Newly connected clients aren't informed about whether actors have called A_HideThing or not, and it (A_HideThing) doesn't seem to work properly on players.

We tried it using TNT1 A 1 wait instead and got similar results.

It is to be expected though. For some reason, TNT1 A frames in the player states (except Spawn) display the PLAY A frame instead. This behavior is also present in ZDoom.

On a side note, if the spawn state is defined like this:

        TNT1 A -1

The chasecam will not work properly when you are standing still.

So the whole issue is not a Skulltag bug then?

It is apparently the ZDoom behavior. But the A_HideThing issues are still valid here though.

This issue is still present in 3.2-alpha. One added detail I have here is that in my case it happens with morphed actors, and TNT1 A -1 is not directly related.
