Coding Help
This is a counterpart to the "Mapping Help" thread. If you need help with QuakeC coding, or questions about how to do some engine modification, this is the place for you! We've got a few coders here on the forum and hopefully someone knows the answer.

I will ask this for Madfox here:

So in version 2.38 of the chasm mod, the Mong does not react after being hit by a stratos. However, they will infight on rare occasions. But I cannot figure out what these occasions are. I managed to capture a saved game of them infighting, attached below, maybe somebody could take a look at it? This issue is really weird, monsters either infight or don't infight, but not infight rarely.

The saved games are here:

2.38 is here:

I figured it out, tagged madfox on discord...

The monsters first frame of run animation has a ai_walk in it.... change it to ai_run and it works just fine. 
 
Hi, everyone im doing my first code for quakec and I need some help

I would like make a 1920's wall lamp, my entity works but i would like instead a common light a flickering one, i use this code but seems doesnt works properly (compiling is ok), any suggestion? Thanks a lot in advance!

My code:
/*QUAKED light_torch_small_walltorch (0 .5 0) (-10 -10 -20) (10 10 20)
Short wall torch
Default light value is 200
Default style is 7
*/
void() light_wall_lamp =
{
precache_model ("progs/lamp.mdl");
setmodel (self, "progs/lamp.mdl");
FireAmbient ();
self.style = 3;
lightstyle(self.style, "mmmmmaaaaammmmmaaaaaabcdefgabcdefg");
makestatic (self);
};

How looks on quake

If you want to make a custom light style you should give it a new number not already used and place it with the other light style definitions (forgot where — world.qc)?

Then, it seems bad to hard-code the style in the entity spawn function since it prevents a mapper from changing it per instance in the map. You could do a check “if self.style == 0 then self.style = 3” which would let mappers use different styles but also add the convenience of if being automatic for lazy mappers. 
Oh... 
And I forgot, you have to set the entity style in the map editor anyway because it needs to be there for light.exe to set up the light maps correctly.

So just declare the light style in a centralized location with a unique number < 32 and then set it on the light entities in the map editor, and that should be it. 
 
I will ask two more questions for Madfox regarding the Chasm mod.

In Chasm mod 2.4. when the Faust fires a rocket, there is no explosion. I used to think that this issue is not a big deal, as there are tons of mods with Rocket Ogres and Rocket Grunts, but apparently it is not that simple. Madfox made a video of it here:

https://youtu.be/BL4vuKIl8N8

You can see there is no explosion.

The second question is that when one of the monster dies, its corpse floats in the air. I have provided two saved games, one with the creature alive, and another with the creature dead.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/dptouqamw0mgcmk/chasm2.4%20save.rar?dl=0

If somebody could take a look at these two issues it would be great. Thanks!

The chasm mod is found here:

Can we make quake player automatically move forward by players his own forward direction
Im really getting stuck about it please some one help me ı wısh i could ask a true question... 
// Player Not Fixed 
I don't understand the question.

Do you want to get behind a player to move it foreward,
or do you need a code so you don't have to push a foreward button?

I don't want to offend you, but I really get stuck to understand your question. 
 
Yes second one i need an auto forward velocity code.i have a trigger and i want to player go forward automaticlally every time when player touch
And thank you 
 
I forgot to tell that player must go forward automatically by triggers angle and may can jump may be hide his weapon bla bla :)

}; 
I Get The Question
