Fat Larry Abduction
« on: August 25, 2018, 06:52:22 AM »
I was sent this clip:
https://clips.twitch.tv/KindTameTriangleWTRuck

Larry's obviously glitching.

While I think that specific animation is used for one of the Haunted LA TV crew in the hospital, I've never seen it applied to Larry, and it seems like it was designed with him in mind -- to be pulled under his truck where he'd disappear.

I've never encountered this before. Is this something I've somehow missed? Or is it a cut animation script, perhaps connected to Brother Kanker or Andrei's Tzimisce creations?

No, I have never seen this myself. There also is no info about this in the map file. Are you sure they didn't just make this for the video?

I was watching a previous stream of theirs; they're new to Bloodlines. They had been experiencing a larger-than-average number of glitches on their playthrough, but nothing I haven't seen before. Nothing like this. They don't seem like the type of people who'd fake this just for their admittedly small stream audience.

Maybe they play long sessions in one go for their videos, Bloodlines is known to act up then. One example is the famous Skyeline haven bug!

somehow in game i was always waiting for larry to be pulled under his truck cause i thought that truck being there in that dark alley is for a purpose.
i have to agree with brother kanker thing.

It's not a glitch, it's a scripted_sequence with Drag_FromBehind animation. It repeat over and over because it's set like this in the spawnflags. If it's not the video's author, then it must be something they downloaded with a modified la_hub, but why would someone set a new scripted_sequence that repeat over and over for Larry? A forgotten mistake probably.

Might not be a bad idea for a mod!
You turn the corner and see that happening.
