A_KillTracer [(string damagetype [, int flags [, string filter [, string species [, int src [, int inflict]]]]])]

Usage

Kills the calling actor's tracer. Optionally, a damage type can be given. Note that damage inflicted by this codepointer is not affected by damage factors.

Parameters

  • damagetype: if the actor dies, the actor will enter a death state based on the specified damage type if present (or pain state if using NODAMAGE). Default is "None".
  • flags: the following flags can be combined using the | character between name constants:
    • KILS_FOILINVUL - kills monsters and/or missiles that have the INVULNERABLE flag.
    • KILS_KILLMISSILES - causes missiles that are affected to enter their death state. Note that this follows the INVULNERABLE and NODAMAGE rules for monsters.
    • KILS_NOMONSTERS - do not target monsters with this function. Alone, it makes the function do nothing, but can be combined with KILS_KILLMISSILES to only affect missiles.
    • KILS_FOILBUDDHA — the buddha effect is ignored when attempting to kill the actor.
    • KILS_EXFILTER — inverts the case of the class name filter; the calling actor's tracer is only killed if its class name does not match the value passed to filter.
    • KILS_EXSPECIES — inverts the case of the species filter; the calling actor's tracer is only killed if its species does not match the value passed to species.
    • KILS_EITHER — the calling actor's tracer is killed if either of its class name or species matches the values passed to filter and species, respectively.
  • filter: the actor class to kill. The calling actor's tracer is only killed if its class name matches the specified filter class. Default is "None".
  • species: the actor species to kill. The calling actor's tracer is only killed if its species matches the specified species filter. Default is "None".
  • src: Indicates the actor pointer responsible for dealing the damage. A monster dealing the damage should use AAPTR_DEFAULT, and missiles should use AAPTR_TARGET (so monsters can identify missiles belonging to their owners and give proper credit for the kill). Default is AAPTR_DEFAULT.
  • inflict: The actor doing the actual damage. By changing this, the actor's flags upon the pointed actor are taken into account instead of the calling actor's own.
