Wouldn't this topic fit better in "released assets" ? Granted, there's a demo map with this but the source is the most important thing right?

Anyway what exactly is "forced spawning"?

I'm not sure what to do with this and the new released assets area. But you make a good argument for moving it over there. However, as its broken in MP, I'll just let if be for now.

'Forced spawning' is what I call having the lua script manually spawn players using SpawnCharacter(). If I get it working in Deathmatch, as soon as you are killed, you would respawn. No waiting for 15 seconds.

I hope this bump is allowed...

Has anyone ever attempted to fix this or got a stable workaround?
I'm fairly sure that SetProperty(unit, "Team", self.deathmatchTeam) is causing the issue (the game crashes for all clients) but I wouldn't know how to do this differently.

Sorry I don't remember. However some Fake Console commands use that so it's probably not directly the issue (but it could be related to it). You can find a bunch of Deathmatch source code from this page: http://zerted.getmyip.com/swbf2.xhtml

I do remember almost always needing to do these two things together:
Code: Select all
SetProperty(unit, "Team", self.deathmatchTeam)
SetProperty(unit, "PerceivedTeam", self.deathmatchTeam)
