I thought it might be interesting to see different death animations on players when they are killed.
I couldn't set different death animations how I would of liked to, so this is essentially a slippery hack. It's amusing though, and would love to see how it works out on a populated server.

The effect is that when someone is killed, a random death animation will play. It does not pro-long your re-spawn time.

Here's a video of it, but I cheated a bit and used a chat hook to kill the character rather than mess around with multiple clients.
If you watch the video, at least watch it to the 1 minute 40 seconds mark.

I'm guessing that the animations do not use the direction of the player, do they? I'm guessing because in some of the animations you see the character turning while playing the animation, in a way that seems similar to how the lag reduction mechanisms would do that.

The turning is part of the animation itself, it does appreciate the facing value. Big Grin

Yeah, I found one that would be pretty funny as a reaction to the volt auto rifle damage. I might make a special case for that, it was hilarious.

Thanks man! I've achieved it in a shitty way, but I'm not sure how else it would of been possible.
