Note: Wait! Stop! Before you copy this actor's definition into your mod, remember the following things:
  1. You do not need to copy that actor, since it is already defined.
  2. In fact, it's not just useless, it's actually harmful as it can cause problems.
  3. If you want to modify it, or use a modified version, using inheritance is the way to go.
  4. The actor definitions here are put on the wiki for reference purpose only. Learn from them, don't copy them.
  5. There is only one exception: if what you want is changing Ammo capacity, you need to create a new type from Ammo.

Classes: SwitchableDecorationBatSpawner
Spawns a flock of bats when activated. A bat spawner's argument affect its behavior when A_BatSpawn is called:

  • args[0] frequency of spawn, a smaller number results in a higher frequency.
  • args[1] spread angle, expressed as a byte angle.
  • args[3] lifetime of each bats (each point allows spawned bats to survive for four calls to A_BatMove).
  • args[4] turn amount per move for the bats (in degrees).
