View Full Version : dead body mod using Corsix's uber awesome mod

How do u make dead bodies never go away with the game?
25th Sep 06, 6:00 PM
open a file and look under health_ext, then delete_when_dead. that would be my guess, but i have not tested it. probably not a good idea unless you've got some nice hardware, and it looks like you have to do it with each soldier type. maybe there's another way if you dig around.

thx. ill give it a go.

Try death_time in the unit's attributes (I think it was the sbps)

i think camo is talking about death_seconds in the same place as delete_when_dead, as the sbps settings seem unrelated to the individual and more concerned with squad settings. however, death_seconds has a setting of "1", which is a bit weird. that's my next best guess, though. good luck.
you could check out casualty_ext settings, but that seems more related to the characters who fall down and appear to be "injured"

ya think corsix would know?
25th Sep 06, 6:54 PM
Sure he would! Right Corsix???
25th Sep 06, 7:03 PM
ill pm him.

look under tuning>tuning.rgd
then look under death. looks like this could solve both the more violence and corpse stay problems.
this file has all sorts of other useful variables as well.
27th Sep 06, 12:39 PM
cool thx man. wat would i change for unl death time?
27th Sep 06, 12:57 PM
not sure yet. however, to make it gib more, just raise the number on that gib variable. i put it from 100 to 200. that makes 1 out of 4 guys gib from tank rounds, so might be over kill.

i changed, but doesnt work correctly. i get an eror mesage. dammit this mod is killing me lol:rip:
PS no offense meant, but where is corsix when u need him?:cry:
27th Sep 06, 9:52 PM
how do i get the game to run with the mods using corsix tool? Something about checking the -dev box but I don't see it. And afterward, do you just clikc on CoH like you normally do from the start menu or desktop? And do I go to singleplayer skirmish to look for the changes?
28th Sep 06, 4:57 AM
go to the bar with file and stuff, go to play, tick run in dev mode

Can someone could try this (for dead bodies), I only have the demo:
Open Attrib/attrib/ebps/races/allies/ (and axies/) Soldiers........ open the entry "healt text" and select
"delete when dead " -> change the attribute from "TRUE in False "
28th Sep 06, 5:53 AM
weve tried that. it didnt work either.
28th Sep 06, 9:21 AM
Mhhh maybe stupid question...but did you press the "save" button (down right in the mod tool) when you changed the attributes after every soldier class? Just an idea.
28th Sep 06, 11:08 AM
Yes. You'll have to hit save whenever you switch units otherwise the editor won't save the changes.
28th Sep 06, 12:01 PM
yes, i am also going to say that you should push save. you should also start the game. if you don't start the game how do you see if your mods worked? don't be stupid, start the game! that's what i always say.
28th Sep 06, 12:59 PM
yah i always press save. ur right dumb question.
28th Sep 06, 1:24 PM
Did you use the -dev command line?
28th Sep 06, 1:24 PM
yah i always press save. ur right dumb question
We are all humans not machines....it was just a tipp :hippy: ....good...lets continuing the search for this damn body stay time... ;)
28th Sep 06, 2:30 PM
im not saying ur stupid. im just saying dumb question man. i agreed with u lol.
28th Sep 06, 10:24 PM
someone have an answer for good working like dead bodys stay?
28th Sep 06, 10:35 PM
Attrib/attrib/ebps/races/allies/soldierxyz(any soldier) -->healt text-->delete when dead=FALSE
I found out that this partially works.
If you look at the soldier units called something like soldierstaydeadforever or something like that , you will find that "deletewhendead" is false .
Those are the units probably used on maps like "hill142(?)", where there are some allied units lying on the ground that don't disappear.
Well, i activated it on all soldier units.
Some soldiers stayed on ground after death without disappearing, probably the ones that took no gib damage (about a soldier every squad).No lag problerms.
The only problem that come out when i fist loaded a game in progress, ALL soldiers died during all the game on that map (we are talking thousand of units) appeared on the map as dead.
I have a supercomputer but it lagged from 100fps at max detail, to 4 fps :o

Can you tell me, what make i wrong?
28th Sep 06, 10:47 PM
I am very sorry but i did not understand you that much...
Wich mods do you load? yours?
What error message you get?
I cannot tell you what you have done wrong if I don't know what you did :)
Please explain so I might be of assistance... i hope :P
28th Sep 06, 10:53 PM
i mean the dead body mod.
When i start a game, no dead bodys stay, don`t know why?
28th Sep 06, 11:00 PM
@Dynastie maybe you try to mod the demo or the pre-alpha? You can't mod the demo or pre alpha.
28th Sep 06, 11:08 PM
1)Are you using Full version?
2)Saved after modified entities?
3)Checked Devmode tab?
If yes to all, try to run the mod, then kill some enemy troops, (or yours hehe) see if at least one enemy unit stay on ground then save, and load the save game you just saved, then let me know if the bodies appear on ground.
Probably the game checks how many fps you have and decides if actually makes the body stay on ground... maybe.
I usually have 80-100 fps on max details and i swear some (not all, not many... just a few, don't know why) body stay on the ground.
P.S. don't check "delete when dead" on crew like mortar or mg or atguns, or if you kill them when they are out of field of view (with your mortar or indirect fire), you will see them remain in position as they are alive, even if dead (weird eh?)
28th Sep 06, 11:13 PM
yes i have the final US Version.
I have all soldiers mod and always save,
than i started with DEV Mode an play the game,
but dead bodys don`t stay :(
ok, thanks i will look these function.
