    I see dead people!! I dont have a clue with whats happening.. I got a custom map that suddenly seems to spawn zombies (dead floating corpsess) that fly out of the map each and everytime you kill someone.. A RIGID FLYING CORPSE APPEARS!! Anyone have a clue what I have done here?? I am not sure where the problem lies... I am running sourcemod but have no clue if that is cause... Any ideas???

    Its pigging up my fps as well.

    Thanks in advance..

    Yes...I made the map... When you kill people...they fall down.. then a "ragdoll'' rigid looking corpse of them flys away from the body and the body disappears.. Sorry if the post seems a little incoherent.. but thats what happens..

    ps.. I have my own server that I run this map on... I have control of source mod..ect

    Why not just post screenshots? You'll get help much faster.

    Are you guys serious?? wtf ... Its obviously a rare problem or someone would chime in how to fix it. a screenshot, if I took the time to capture it, host it, publish it here would look like I photoshopped something... then I guess you would accuse me of that. The admins can close this thread if they like. Not everyone is trying to game the system. Some are just looking for help.

    Nobody's going to claim you photoshoped anything, and we all belive it happened, just the most likely way you'll get any help and a solution is by posting pictures.

    You wont see anything other than a ragdoll standing unarmed in a still shot.. You dont see the moving ragdoll and the corpse in the same shot.. I suppose I could take a video, host it, then put a link to it or post on youtube..

    I was hoping someone would jump up and say xyz is bad and problem would be solved... I may have to go down that road though.. Actually I am not sure "you" seeing this phenom would tell even the super sharp dudes what the poblem is.. You would either know by my discription or you will scratch your head..

    The map is for practice, achiev, fun. Its crappy.. BUT, Its a learning tool for me. There are bots that spawn for target practice. The ragdoll that flys away from the corpse resembles a standing bot.

    I know.. i know.. get a video... post it.. yada yada.. lol.. I am going to recompile and hope it goes away.. If it dont, ill put a video up.

    Any thoughts are still appreciated...

    Please just post a picture so we can at least have a complete visual idea of what's going on. Chances are it might just be your comp and nothing wrong with the map/server.

    It sounds to me like your seeing spectators. This happens to a very small degree on all servers on all maps where when somebody respawns you will sometimes see a rigid ragdoll briefly from where they were spectating fly to the spawn. Sounds to me like it's just worse on your server.

    Are you sure it's the map? Does it happen on any other maps? Try rebooting/reinstalling the server/sourcemod.

    I believe its version 1.3.4

    as far as spectator issue, i have no idea if that is it..

    I did manage to snap a screenshot that shows the ragdoll, weaponless, and floating say 5 feet per se off the floor. It was moving at the time but thats how it appears now.. I will try to upload it for explanation.

    Ok..here ya go.. Circled is the engineer ragdoll that actually is flying in the direction of the blue arrow. Notice that he is at a different height than the other bots and in a different stance. His gun is NOT in his hands but rather laying on the deck at his feet. The body remains are now gone but his gun is left behind.

    Once the body disappears, the ghost arrives above its last location and then rockets away.. whole thing takes about a sec and a half..

    Thanks again for your time in reviewing this matter.. I just find it odd and thought I would share this with you guys in hopes of finding a solution...

    Ah! that picture knocked something lose in my memory...

    I remember this happening on a server I would play in from time to time. It happened shortly after the engy update. where instead of a killcam it would allow you to move in spectator for a few seconds. the spectator was visible to everyone as their class in ref pose. It would disappear shortly after. the "ghosts" would be considered real people(sentries would fire at them). It was a bug in sourcemod. That server fixed it in a few weeks(or sourcemod/valve did.) and that's all i saw of it. sounds like the same bug.

    My guess is that your sourcemod is bugged and needs reinstall.(or entire server for that matter.)

    Also try running this map on your own server (say "map <MAP NAME>" in console) and see if it happens. also check if it happens on other maps on the server.
