black screen on death
« on: October 02, 2011, 06:52:11 pm »
Hi Pat!

I have just a quick thought about the "black-screen" on death.

Everytime you "died" a blackscreen will shown.

But why is this not shown, when you are the attacker?

// black screen on death   
if(level.ex_bsod && isDefined(eAttacker) && eAttacker != self) self thread showBlackScreen();

Dead is dead, independed who killed me :o

It has just confused me, not to see the blackscreen :)

I think it should be in the way:
// black screen on death   
if(level.ex_bsod && isDefined(eAttacker)) self thread showBlackScreen();

The sole purpose of the back screen on death is to prevent the victim from seeing the attackers location. If you kill yourself, you know where it came from, so the bsod wouldn't make sense. If you like your version better... it's fine by me.
