A_RaiseMaster [(int flags)]

Usage

Resurrects the calling actor's master. Currently the only function that sets the necessary information is A_SpawnItemEx.

Parameters

  • flags: The following flags can be combined using the bit-wise OR operator (|):
    • RF_TRANSFERFRIENDLINESS — the resurrected actors will change their affiliation to match that of the calling actor.
    • RF_NOCHECKPOSITION — do note check for room before resurrecting.

Monsters spawned with A_CustomMissile are not affected by this. A_CustomMissile was never designed to spawn monsters.

Examples

The following is a variant of the doom imp, a monster whose sole purpose is to revive its master through its death. Upon dying, its death state triggers A_RaiseMaster, reviving the monster who spawned it with the master/child flag.
