Jack O should be a Wisp

Post by Rosh » 01 Nov 2009, 19:32

A killed Jack O should randomly turn into a wisp, a spectre or a poltergeist.
Thats more logical and shouldn't be to hard to arrange.

Having the death animation turn into a poltergeist would be more logical.
This is looking at it as a graphics stand of fixing it. A dev might have a way
for Jacko to spawn a poltergeist or wisp upon death. I'm not sure if Eathena
supports this but I'm not a dev.

Can you show us an example script?

  • former TMW Pixel artist
  • NOT a game master

Please do not send me any inquiries regarding player accounts on TMW.


You might have heard a certain rumor about me. This rumor is completely false. You might also have heard the other rumor about me. This rumor is 100% accurate.

Crush make it @spawn on death ... once it hits the death "frame" than make the server "spawn <monster>" [...] another idea would be having it random between the three sprites. or we could be boring and add it to the damn sprite sheet.
Sorry, but it's obvious that you have no idea what you are talking about.

I would recommend you to learn eAthena scripting before getting involved in such discussions.

The eAthena server is coded in C, not C++. eAthena uses its own [scripting language] for scripts. Check the link at the bottom of that page for a scripting reference, though be aware that most functions there won't work properly in our version of eAthena.

Calling an NPC function when a monster dies is only possible when the monster was spawned using a NPC script initially AFAIK (I haven't checked if this works properly with our outdated version) :|
