Ouch, just what I fea.... Oh wait you're using 2.4 right, if so, the patch I made about shooting stunned actors on the ground also addresses this, so this should be already fixed in master.

But in case you're using a recent 2.5-dev version I'd like to hear about this.

of course. the corpse blocks fire but is usually lower and you shoot above it. but in this case the corpse is lying a little bit higher and thus blocks the line of fire. this is not a bug -at least not in this case

hmm, you're probably right. I took that shot btw, and did score a hit, so line of fire was not *entirely* blocked.

btw from recent "bleeding wounds" discussion I was under the impression that in 2.4 corpses were supposed to be "immaterial", untargettable.

Indeed, they are non-solid objects, in the server side of the game, the client side still considers them solid, but since all the action happens server-side, the seemingly blocked LoF is only a cosmetic defect, server-side the shoots will go right through the body and into whatever is across.
