I cracked the code man. This was bugging me as to how I did it but you couldnt reproduce it. If you have a knockback weapon and you die from monster damage, everything is fine. But, if you have a knockback weapon and die from self damage you will continue to ghost/resurrect endlessly without ever dying.

Go ahead and test this one if you want. You should see the same thing. I just got done testing it with a knockback RL and shot myself into oblivion 3 or more times each time withing 40 seconds of the last time I saw the "your resurrection has brought you here" message. 


This is so weird. We dont see this at all on our server... if I die with a knockback, I ghost once, and the next time I'm out.

Are you running any sort of a drop all mutator when a player dies?

The way ghost & ressurection works is that when you "die" the first time, you get a GhostInv or DruidsGhostInv placed in your inventory. If you die again, and have one of these objects in your inventory, you die as normal. With DruidGhost the DruidGhostInv is placed in your inventory with a lifespan set based upon your level of druidghost...

The only way I can figure this is happening is that something is coming along and removing the object from your inventory...

The fundamental problem is this: The first word we learn as children is NO. From that point forward society teaches women that saying no isn't polite, and society teaches men to respect those who wont take no for an answer.

But the key to it for me is that you have to die because of your own SELF DAMAGE. If you die because someone / something else shoots you its fine. But it you kill yourself with a weapon with splash damage it will reghost over and over and over.

How extensively did you test to see if you cause your own death would it still place the object in your inventory?

I think I've tried your steps... let me tell you what I did.
1) with a Knockback flak
2) Kill myself with the alt fire.
3) resurrection moves me elsewhere
4) Kill myself with alt fire
5) Out

Okay I made you a demo file. I ran instant action. RPG is the only mutator running, and its invasion so if I resurrect I shouldnt come back a second time. I play on albatross. You can clearly see me kill myself many times with a RL.
