Stunning - bug or WAD?
« on: July 11, 2010, 03:54:09 am »
Not sure if this is a bug or not, but I wanted to check before entering a bug to make sure it's not supposed to work this way:

When attempting to stun an alien, I hit him with a stun rod and he just took it without getting stunned.  I'm now standing right in front of him and out of time units so I write off trying to stun him and just send in another soldier with a flamethrower to finish him off.  The alien goes down, but instead of being french fried, it was stunned.  Is that how it should work?  Is lethal and non-lethal damage totaled to decide when the alien is incapacitated?

Yes, this is working correctly.  You won't always succeed in stunning, but after you try a regular weapon can stun instead of kill. This is written somewhere (either in the description or it may be a hint of the day entry).
