Bug Description

If you manually send a request to the server to build a sentry, skipping all the checks in the standard build menu you can build a sentry in some places you shouldn't be able to. This allowed me to build a sentry in the spawn room. Further, by making a script that alternately sent the "build" and "destroy" request every step while standing on a med cabinet I was able to make and extremely fast stream of exploding sentries. This lags the game, confuses people, and is hilarious. I'm going to keep exploiting this until you fix it.

You were that person on orange! GRRREGH. That was extremely laggy.

What is this exact script that you made?
I want to try it too!

if(global.fartfart2 > 0)
{
global.fartfart2 = 0;
    clearbuffer(global.sendBuffer);
    writebyte(BUILD_SENTRY,global.sendBuffer);
    sendmessage(global.serverSocket, 0, 0, global.sendBuffer);
}else{
global.fartfart2=1;
clearbuffer(global.sendBuffer);
writebyte(DESTROY_SENTRY,global.sendBuffer);
sendmessage(global.serverSocket, 0, 0, global.sendBuffer);
}

That was on a Step frame. You can figure out the rest yourself.

Fartfart2?

Where does this code go?

SeriousGamer (ushnor) wrote :

fartfart2 was just a random variable name I came up with while making it. global.fartfart1 is used for my bubble spammer. If you seriously don't know where to put the code I'm not going to bother helping you. At least the bug fixers are going to have it now though.

I put it in gamemakers script folder, now what?
