Was looking at the Fun DDM pics for One Shot Boomstick at the link below: http://www.hallsted.org/fun-ddms/one-shot-9-21-03/one-shot-fun-ddm-pics.html

And in 2 of them, harmless has 101 health.

How did that happen? Or has it always happened and I never noticed it.

Killer are you serious about the rounding error. It just seems odd.

You newbie...don't do the Alt K.

I'm always serious. Except when I'm not serious, but then I'm serious about not being serious when I'm not serious, so that makes me serious. Seriously.

The damage shown on the display is actually the current health internal value divided by the tank's maximum health internal value. Then the result is multiplied by 100. Pick up a few health powerups and you may end up with a value 100.00000000000001% which gets rounded to 101. But internally, TM has the correct value for health.

I had a similar trick in the old bz days. Id go into a game, say id found a trick to make your ammo unlimited.... they had to hold down CTRL and type BOMB .. thing was CTRL and B Ejected the pilot and blew up the ship, very similar to TM's Alt-k (minus the pilot)........ Funny as hell to see all these guys in spacesuits go flying up into the atmosphere LMAO !!!
