View Full Version : The Body Vanishes

04-06-2002, 04:06 AM
JKO is great so far...a few levels into lightsabre. One thing though drives me nuts. I know it's only a game...and not real...but I sure wish the bodies wouldn't disappear so quickly. I mean, you shoot a guy, piddle around for 5 seconds, turn around, and he's gone!!

It's a terrible "suspension of disbelief" wrecker. I really appreciate coming back to an area and seeing the guys I smoked still sprawled out on the floor.

Is there a console command to keep them around, or at least lengthen the time they stay? Sure, at some point, someone...a lowly droid or two...could reasonably dispose of the bodies, I guess. ;)

Thanks in advance..

I would also like to know if a setting exists to make them (and bullet marks) stay longer.

if you set it to where the bodies stay longer and the bullet holes and saber marks long=VERY Laggy Game!!!

I would imagine the length of time they remain could be configured from the console if anyone knows the right command, I would guess it's held in a variable somewhere.

The reason I guess is not to put too much strain on the system. You may be able to get away with making the length of time much longer on a high end system with a lot of memory.

If anyone knows how, let me know. AS RTCW is also quake 3 and has much longer body stay times.

Really seems simple, but yet eludes the community.
