RDM has reached milestone 2! What is that milestone you ask? Why, it is hit detection!

Hit detection is normally done by traces from a gun straight ahead until it hits something. If it hits a player, they take damage. Since we aren't using guns, we cannot do anything even close to this.

Since we don't want to do a bunch of traces on every think (that would lag a LOT), we decided to add another entity (rdm_hitbox) to go on hands and feet. This is a basic entity that will not collide with anything while having a shape and size (a box).

On a physics collision, rdm_hitbox ignores the collision UNLESS it is a ragdoll that another player is controlling. If it does hit another player, it checks a table of multipliers (so that if you hit someon's head, it does 3 times the damage...) and then takes away their health.

Our next milestone: Powerups!

No, there isn't. This is more like Ragdoll Masters, which you can find here: http://www.ragdollsoft.com/ragdollmasters/

Sorry... You misunderstood me. There is a game called ragdoll kung-fu, but I was saying that there isn't a game called ragdoll kung-fu that is like this. That game is totally different.
