Title: Lethal ridable platform?
Post by: Mengo329 on October 30, 2021, 01:46:31 PM
So I'm making a mod for 8BDM and one of the new inventory items is the super arrow from Megaman 5. You can ride on it and I have that working, and it can kill any player it flies into, and I have the damage working, but it only counts as a miscellaneous death instead of being killed by the user. Any way to make the damage "belong" to the user, if that makes any sense?

My best guesses are either you're spawning a projectile that's losing its owner so it's not longer able to attribute the damage to that owner, or it's a projectile that's spawning another projectile and not properly attributing owner that way. You might wanna look at something like Ice Wall which is also a lethal ridable platform. I think that's pretty much the best suggestion I could give without looking at the code itself to scout out red flags.
