Detpack went off 26 seconds early
Detpack went off 26 seconds early

I had the detpack set, it wasn't disabled by a scout, when it blew everything shook like it normally does. I know there was 26 seconds left on the timer as I was looking at it when it went off and dissapered off the screen.

Are there any weird factors you can think of in your situation? I cannot reproduce

Did it get EMPed?

If you remember what date/time whereabouts this happened I can snag the log (if it was on [o-t])

Nope, I set it for 50 seconds then ran. The generator was already down.

I didn't know emps did anything to them. I have no idea if it was or not, I wasn't in the room at the time.

It happened somewhere between
March 7, 2010, 9:38:05 PM AST (8:38:05 PM EST)
and
March 7, 2010, 10:05:14 PM AST (9:05:14 PM EST)

It was set in the generator room, though the generator was still down. I left it in there just in case an engi fixed it. And yup it was on the OT server.

EMPs reduce the detpack timer to 5 seconds. Maybe the HUD timer doesn't update when that happens?

The hudtext doesn't get updated when an EMP hits the detpack.

no, they blow them up...instantly. But not updating the HUD is likely a bug that should be looked at.

Edit: and yeah, that's been around since TFC...same with bags, they blow up any bags that are around.

I knew emps blew the bags and pipes but I had no idea they messed with the det pack too.

Yeah, I had no idea EMPs interacted with detpacks.

Found the incident in the log. There's no logging to say someone emped it though.

dam I really shouldn't read shit when I'm going on 70 hours of work in a week...the whole time I though we were talking about grellows. I didn't realize they effected det packs either. Gonna have to test that sometime. Also scuzzy, can you past the log into privatepaste or something and give us a link?

I've tested this already. If you emp a detpack it goes down to 5 secs but the hud doesn't update.

There's not much to see, but I think whoever said it was an EMP was right, here's why:

Code:
L 03/07/2010 - 20:35:49: "Grocery ClerK CL3<468><STEAM_0:1:21640339><#FF_TEAM_RED>" triggered "player_changeclass" (oldclass "spy") (newclass "engineer")
...
L 03/07/2010 - 20:41:01: "Lopestyler<475><STEAM_0:0:22313877><#FF_TEAM_BLUE>" killed "Mojo<471><STEAM_0:1:4390050><#FF_TEAM_RED>" with "weapon_assaultcannon"
L 03/07/2010 - 20:41:01: "Gwarsbane<478><STEAM_0:0:7201931><#FF_TEAM_BLUE>" triggered "build_detpack"
L 03/07/2010 - 20:41:03: "dre<481><STEAM_0:0:11855620><>" STEAM USERID validated
L 03/07/2010 - 20:41:05: "Lopestyler<475><STEAM_0:0:22313877><#FF_TEAM_BLUE>" killed "Chickenprotector<459><STEAM_0:0:10280228><#FF_TEAM_RED>" with "weapon_assaultcannon"
L 03/07/2010 - 20:41:06: "Gwarsbane<478><STEAM_0:0:7201931><#FF_TEAM_BLUE>" triggered "detpack_detonated"
L 03/07/2010 - 20:41:06: "Gwarsbane<478><STEAM_0:0:7201931><#FF_TEAM_BLUE>" killed "Grocery ClerK CL3<468><STEAM_0:1:21640339><#FF_TEAM_RED>" with "Detpack"
L 03/07/2010 - 20:41:13: "Ronzui<476><STEAM_0:0:16515001><#FF_TEAM_BLUE>" triggered "flag_touch" (flag_name "red_flag") (player_origin "676.58, -2210.81, -476.2") (player_health "31")
GC is an engineer and is next to it when it goes off. My guess is he whipped an emp at someone near there and blew himself to kingdom come. That's the only premature ejaculation of one of gwar's detpacks.

And to clarify - EMPs will not add time to the detpack. If the detpack will explode in less than five seconds, it has no effect.

that's really interesting...I honestly had no clue it did that.

Edit: If this is true (not saying it isn't) we need to add a hud indicator when a detpack is emped and update the timer.

After all these tfc/ff years, i have never seen this either.

Probably because everyone ducks for cover. :)
