    So popped in for the first time in ages... and got killed by a robot

    But I can't revive. The timer counted down and I am still dead in a heap. I've now regained my health, can equip weapons and shoot but still in a crumpled heap. Can even change clothes/armour and spawn a car (but can't get in it cause I "too far away" when it right next to my broken body). No mobs near by so not sure If I can deal damage or take it and not in PVP so can't hurt myself with a grenade.

    In all my years, this is a new one on me. Happy Halloween.

    zombie.

    You need to click the button after the timer has counted down. This was introduced because of rampant abuse with death skilling. The waiting time will increase on repeat occasions.
     
  3. Pfff...this bug returns since 2004...honestly...blah @rampant abuse of death skilling x'D

    Check video at 0:50...or watch the whole thing....

    hehe the feels from that vid.

    So turned out, I think what had happened was that I had revived at the RT at Zychion. But my body and mind stayed where I died. I was unable to move my body but I wonder if there was a body moving at Zych RT? or was I invisible? Alas I hadn't realised otherwise I'd have got someone to check. I could fire and hear the noise but not see the beam or animation. I could change my dead avatars clothes and see the affect. I could attempt to spawn a vehicle next to my dead body but got the "too far away from you" message (as presumably I was at zych.

    I only found out I was at zych after a relog... I forgot to go back to where I had died to see if there was still a body there.

    Don't think it was the same bug as in the video as that body could rotate
     
  5. Ofc it is not the same as in the video, but the bug adapted, with the introduction of CryEnigne 2.
    Its really as simple as that. Some old spaghetti code remnants, that never got taken care of.

    I guess so... I wonder if it was because... at the time I died, I was caught on a wall I'd been trying to jump over. I wonder... the person in your vid was near a cage wall... maybe it's to do with being trapped on the environment and dying?
