Ragdoll Deathmatch (RDM) is a Garry's Mod gamemode that uses the Fretta base. It is based off of the game Ragdoll Masters, but is completely multiplayer. This is being created for the Garry's Mod Fretta competition.

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!

In Ragdoll Deathmatch (RDM), you control a ragdoll that you try to run into other ragdolls with. Hitting other ragdolls with your hands or feet will do damage. The last ragdoll standing (or floating) wins!

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.
