Re: [Suggestion] Add new cvar for gibs and gore

keeping all blood will create a objects overflow.

Less arrogance would be healthy

Skull is right? Then you/he surely can point me to the part in the code where those 500 objects are defined? Chatterbox
Overflows come from data exceeding a fixed structures' boundary. These boundaries are defined by developers and not by nature or so something so it can be changed!

source is by defrag guys, they have to know that value for stuff like combine a few hundred plasma bolts to one climb.

If you really want, write urself a config and go test it out lol

cg_localents.c

#define	MAX_LOCAL_ENTITIES	512
localEntity_t	cg_localEntities[MAX_LOCAL_ENTITIES];

It won't overflow. It will replace previous objects.

I have the enemy flag!

* lectorgc_ rolls the dice 2 times ⚅ ⚅ and gets 12

Thanks! The define could be altered. I mean, it was defined somewhere in 1999 when a top-notch gaming PC had 350 MHz CPU, 16 MB Gfx and 128 MB RAM.

Re: [Suggestion] Add new cvar for gibs and gore

I did a quick test with ioQuake and changed MAX_LOCAL_ENTITIES to 2048 and raised the default duration for the gibs to 10 minutes and played 10 I-can-win-bots on DM17 without any issues and my PC is already pretty outdated (built in 2006, single core AMD Athlon 64 3800+, GeForce 7900 GTO).
