Summary0001327: Laffy Taffy/Roadkill CJ Model

Basically CJ looks like hes been run over. I saw someone get a video of this and they said it was rare but... I've had it happen to me several times in the past betas. You basically run around as a piece of road kill... pretty impossible to play. I just got it joining error's map on gamma (noone else in). Can't really reproduce. Reproduced when someone changes clothes, and then another player suicides.

TagsNo tags attached.

Happens if you leave the game up for a while when you left with a skin on I think. I'll get a screen next time it happens.
It's also worth noting that this happens to a specific skin, say this can permantently ruin skin 150 till next GTA restart. You can play normally with any other skin, but trying 150 again will cause this weird-looking CJ if it has happened once with skin 150. It can happen to more than one skin.

I also experienced this in chrmls 03 server.

I was playing as model 33 (my favorite) and i was killed by explosion. after respawning i tried to turn back into 33, but when i did, this is what i looked like.!s_is_N0T_hidden_dir/mutants.JPG

i could switch to other models and i looked fine, but 33 was always warped even on other players. even after another death this continued.

Would be interesting seeing if this can happen to remote players too. Can anyone get someone remote to go in and change to the same skin ID that has mutated for the local player? See if the remote player gets mutated too.

I just experienced this and when i changed my skin it went away. Only thing is right when i respawned my character was completetly someone took a brush and painted him all one color

Still there, seems to happen a lot when I join Brophy's map 'bro'.

quote from what i said in textureless topic:

"This is closely related to the roadkill bug and i think it's because of the removal of setPlayerSkin - so fr now recreates the model. I think that this excess creation of models causes it to go past one of SA's limits which messes it up.

This textureless bug can sometimes be resolved by changing skin, though this is unreliable as you may get the roadkill bug"

yeah so basically think its because of excess changing of skins or excess use of different skins. maps like brophy's use lots of different skins.

MAD_BOY found something. Setting physical stats like Fat (setstat 21 999) will cause the player to become roadkill. Respawning will make him go textureless.

Ye talidan, its like boobs on the female models, they only work correctly when fat and muscle are both set to 0

developer   ~~0003337

I guess this can be handled by scripts - whenever you change a players skin, change fat and muscle to 0.


2006-09-18 05:44

Solution: always set fat and muscles to 0, when changing the player skin.

Issue closed, added to the FAQ.

Related to skeletal modifications on models. Visual (skeletal) stats only apply to the CJ skins.

I don't think leaving it up to the scripter is the best solution.
Not that this is urgent, but can't visual stats be automatically set to default when changing to a ped skin?

this problem is back in a big way, since big smoke became a usable model. same as the other related issue of textureless peds.

This bug occurred when error404 changed clothes and then I suicided. Happens every time.

If this pops up again i'll go insane!

There again.
Here's a way to reproduce:

function laffytaffy ( player, command )
spawnPlayer ( player, 1, 1, 9, 0, 24 )
spawnPlayer ( player, 1, 1, 7, 0, 0 )
setPlayerStat ( player, 23, 1000 )
setPlayerSkin ( player, 24 )
spawnPlayer ( player, 1, 1, 7, 0, 24 )

addCommandHandler ( "laffytaffy", laffytaffy )

Still happens quite often (in Mr.Green Race server). We are running the latest 1.0.4 nightly build. It only happens with CJ (no custom textures). And it happens randomly, no really way of reproducing that I've found.

Someone told me it's reproduce able by making yourself "fat" in freeroam.

How it prevents at me.

  1. Change clothes
  2. reconnect
  3. After spawn with CJ skin you look pretty fubar.

Last few notes are probably laffy taffy being caused by #5839

Relationship added.

Yeah I just added a script which uses a CJ and sets his muscle now everyone is getting their skins as CJ road kill, I'll be removing it.

getting this with setting fat stat as well as (separately) setting CJ to use gimp suit (addPedClothes - "gimpleg" "gimpleg" 17)

The issue is still present in the current MTA version.
However, if you make sure your server doesn't touch the functions (at all) addPedClothes() and setPedStat() with fat/muscle, you will not get this issue.

For race servers, the problem is because of addPedClothes(), while the race gamemode attempts to give CJ a helmet and some other features to look like a cool racer

PS: As I am not sure about fat/muscle thingy, I'm sure that addPedClothes is a problem. Maybe it's simply not resetting the data when the CJ skin is changed to something else so perhaps the devs could double check that function for possible faulties
