[Resolved] Allow mantling while carrying a body

Allow mantling while carrying my lucky dice? No?

Carrying an object is treated differently than shouldering a body in the code. I suppose the original thinking was that the player can't mantle while using both "hands" to carry something.

I've put it on my list of things to investigate. Stay tuned.

I suppose. I also suppose players would naturally try to mantle while carrying a candle only to find out this is unnaturally restricted, regardless of the justifications.

Many thanks in advance, Daft Mugi.

The show stopper happens in lines 5055 and 5056 of file game\physics\Physics_Player.cpp:

    // Ishtvan: Do not attempt to mantle if holding an object
    if( gameLocal.m_Grabber->GetSelected() )
        return;

I wonder what would happen if these lines are commented out, if only for testing purposes... I am specially interested in seeing what happens with jumps.

This is most excellent news, @Daft Mugi! Thanks for your commitment and for your work.

Now, I haven't tested anything nor checked the code but I guess you applied similar limitations than when shouldering bodies. Apologies in advance if this is not the case. At the risk of sounding ungrateful I will say something the same: I already suggested somewhere else that it would be ideal if you include in your workflow going forward a step to see if parts of the code you work on can be made script-friendly. I have seen scripts making use of functionality - previously made available by others - in the most peculiar ways. I would say, from the little experience I have, that even the most irrelevant variable or function can make a difference when realizing that mad idea in a map or as a mod.

Having said that and once again: thank you very much for the efforts and for sharing the results with us.

The latest dev build includes it.

Yes, very similar limitations. There's a new cvar to adjust allowed mantle height while carrying an object.

The default is set to closely match the limitations of mantle while shouldering. Here's a video showing the limitations.

I'm not sure what scripting would like for this.

      Does anyone actually use the Normalise button in the Surface inspector? Even after looking at the code I'm not quite sure what it's for.

      Turns out my 15th anniversary mission idea has already been done once or twice before! I've been beaten to the punch once again, but I suppose that's to be expected when there's over 170 FMs out there, eh? I'm not complaining though, I love learning new tricks and taking inspiration from past FMs. Best of luck on your own fan missions!

      I wanna play Doom 3, but fhDoom has much better features than dhewm3, yet fhDoom is old, outdated and probably not supported. Damn!
      Makes me think that TDM engine for Doom 3 itself would actually be perfect.

      Maybe a bit of advice ? In the FM series I'm preparing, the two main characters have the given names Toby and Agnes (it's the protagonist and deuteragonist, respectively), I've been toying with the idea of giving them family names as well, since many of the FM series have named protagonists who have surnames. Toby's from a family who were usually farriers, though he eventually wound up working as a cobbler (this serves as a daylight "front" for his night time thieving). Would it make sense if the man's popularly accepted family name was Farrier ? It's an existing, though less common English surname, and it directly refers to the profession practiced by his relatives. Your suggestions ?

      Looks like the "Reverse April Fools" releases were too well hidden. Darkfate still hasn't acknowledge all the new releases. Did you play any of the new April Fools missions?
