Possessing Undead Minions
« on: November 01, 2020, 02:43:56 PM »
If I steal undead minions who patrol using the [Other Person Three Command.] Then often I... Become subject to their random patrol movements myself, and my character helplessly wanders around the screen walking into walls without me touching anything.

This ends when I realase whichever monster I possed that caused it.

It does not occure when using ones I created, only when borrowing NPCs subject to random movement already.

This should now be fixed.

Thanks Eo!

I will test whenever I next get the chance.

I also experienced this with familiars. Tried to possess a familiar during combat and i had to keep it from running head on in melee (a pixie...) and let me use their skills and spells. I had to unsummon it cos it was unmanageable. This happened yesterday / 12hrs ago.

That's unrelated; the behaviour Monika described was about henchmen, not creatures you take over. What you describe is normal behaviour if you haven't fully canceled what the familiar was doing.

Yes, I'm specifically refering to the AMPC power to 'possess' [Add to party] pre-existing dungeon spawns, which then seemed to transfer their automated dungeon walk to the controlling AMPC causing me to randomly start walking around in irregular patterns for no apparent reason - The only way to stop this was to banish all the dungeon goons from my party.
