Hewster - I had a wierd but good situation occur in playing tonight. Was going to toss a TNT stick and died. TNT fell at my feet and immediatly blew up (taking out Queeg!! - thats the good part). The question I have is why was there no delay on the TNT? The explosion was instant.

hehe, yeah I know about this "bug" cos it happened to me once :)
Basically this will happen if, the server acknowledges that you have lit a fused bomb, or stick of TNT, and within 1 server frame (20fps = 50 milliseconds) you die, it will explode immediately.
Very rare, and almost impossible to do on purpose, and as such I have decided not to bother fixing the bug for now since its sort of fun !... but if enough players complain they don't like it I'll spend the time and fix it :)

pfft, thats a dragon trick for those suicide missions (doesn't work all the time but if ya time it right, it's down right messy) :D
Not A Complaint Hewster Although Because Queeg Was On The Reciving End He May Complain. I Just Say Its His Fault For Shooting Me

Well if you wouldn't die so quickly this wouldn't be a problem!!!! Actually if it is related to FPS it makes sense that Dragon could use it as a tool if he is at 13fps at times!
Just one of those cool little tricks I guess. I kind of like it. Not that I want to duplicate it a lot. I would rather be alive and kicking!!
