Reply With Quote #1

Hey guys,

I have a weird issue on my server (Windows) recently:

When playing Versus as special infected, sometimes you can become invincible, no matter if using weapons, mele or throwables - nothing can kill you. I cannot quite narrow down what causes it, since it is very random. It would be much appreciated if anyone could help me.

I personally think that it may caused by "Varying Zombie Population" plugin, but not completely sure, since, firstly, it is for bots, and secondly the values I use in cfg of this plugins do not go beyond defaults for specials.

I am on last stable version of Sourcemod: 1.10.0.6510

My server.cfg as follows:

Code:
/////////////////////////

you can try removing my plugin and check if the bug stops

[L4D1 & L4D2] Miss Shot/Shove On Tongue Grab

Don't know if this could bug like you said, but is one of the plugins that prevent SI from getting damage (only from the grabbed attacker btw).
In the worst case the SI would be invincible only from one client and not from everybody else

Probably would glitch the shove function aswell if is that plugin.

Thank you so much Marttt! I will try it out today and will provide a feedback afterwards.

So I have put plugin file in "Disabled" folder and gave it a go. Have played a versus campaign, there was no issues right until final campaign, when spitter got invincible. So negative, not "Miss Shot/Shove On Tongue Grab" plugin issue, something else.

Remove half your plugins and test, if fixed restore half of those removed, or remove half again and repeat until you find the plugin causing it.

Alright, some of the players reported that it happens between 3rd 1st person switch as infected. But I do not have any plugins (to my knowledge) that would allow such switching.

These are the only ones I have recently installed (attach). And most of the new ones are from Sourcemod update

With the recent L4D2 updates you could have some old plugin with "corrupted" gamedata.

The only way is by trial and error as Silvers said, nothing much more else that people can do to help.

I don't remember any recent related reports in other plugins about someone else having this bug.

Yeah, I guess I am on my own for this one. Will start with newly installed then. Thank you guys. I will report on my findings if I will figure out the culprit.

Thanks I will check. Seems something related to the camera being enabled turns the player invunerable.
