Subject: RE: fade in/fade out

well in addition of the force respawn dm flag, i figured it'd make people want to respawn faster instead of staring at a black screen.

as soon as it starts to go dark, you can respawn. that's all. the reason it holds you there is a HACK, it has to animate your client while you are still attatched to it for the death animations. That's the only reason there is no 'instant' respawn in q3 and q2. The fix is spawning a decoy-like death deal but one of those 'not worth the effort' things that i passed off. figured might as well make it different then the same old dying deal.
