Hello,

I'm a beginner at SourcePawn and coding in general, and I have a problem with a plugin I'm trying to make.

I'm using the SetEntPropFloat function to set glowing outlines for a player using m_flDetectedByEnemySensorTime. I successfully managed to code the plugin, but my problem is that the outline is visible to all the players on the server. Could someone explain to me how I can limit it to be seen by only the player causing the damage (iAttacker)? By managing the way the data is sent I assume (Prop_Send ???)?

Here's the part of the code I need to change:
SetEntPropFloat(iVictim, Prop_Send, "m_flDetectedByEnemySensorTime", GetGameTime() + 5);

Even though I'm a noob at coding, I can do some efficient research, so any nudge towards the right direction would be appreciated if this is indeed possible!

in my experience trying to settransmit glows on clients has failed...i've heard from the grapevine there's a way but never figured it out, nor have i found anything on allied modders as how to do it.

https://paste.ofcode.org/RZRDe6k8sw2hEcfxQD4BgM

Any suggestions on how I could produce the callback function for SDKHook that checks if the player was the one doing the damage (== if the glow should be transmitted to the player being checked)?

Can I somehow create a glows_caused list (entry deleted with a timer or in player_death event) for the iAttacker client that references the unique entities (glows) that a player has created by dealing damage, so I can check if a player is the one who caused that exact glow? If yes, how can i check if the hooked entity is found in a players glows_caused list? Does the SDKHook give me something unique about the entity I can check against?

Is there a more simple way of doing this? This is getting way over my head and skill-level

TLDR explanation of what I want from the plugin;
Player that takes damage shows a glow effect for the player dealing the damage. Only the player dealing the damage will see the glow, and the glow is removed after a timer runs out / playerdeath event.
