  • Whistler bug?

    I was having fun in aquatone amusement park, placing whistlers and that happy stuff guards are fond in, and happened that i dropped a whistler by a vent and it went off. I picked it up right away because we were still spawning so it was kind of unfair, and the whistler remained lit all the game.

    Next game in Flats i tried to replicate it but not that people were interested in trying that (got help from a couple of thieves, though, but not thorough testing). I couldn't replicate it because i couldn't pick up the active whistler as i did in Aquatone. The thief picked up the whistler a couple of times too, but not when it was active (he managed to pick it up without firing it because they have an activation time after dropping, am i right?

    Just letting you know that can happen.

      It's happened to me before,

      I suspect its a network problem where occassionaly the call to turn off the whistler, doesn't make it along with all the other things that have to be replicated & so the whistler is never told to turn off.

      It's nothing to do with being picked up, it's just the light source is never disabled with the rest of the whistler & so you can carry it around while it's still lit.

        Yep, that. Never happened to me before, though, and i'm a compulsive whistler buyer. Just to piss off thieves, they run away like hell when they hear one, thinking the whole area will be mined, caltropped and guarded to death.

          Yeah it's very commen. I put out the whistler with my water arrow, pick it up at almost the same time, and the damn thing keep lighted. Ah well ....'atleast the guards can see where i trew it ( mainly on roofs :p )
          On demand this signature has been changed. I hope nobody was insulted or got harmed due to my signature. If this is the case, I'm fully responsible for the harm that was done. Do you feel harmed or you simply want a listening ear?

            OT: My favorite spot to stick the whistler as a thief is that fan vent in Aquatone. Those guards will never get it back! :twisted:
