Summary: It appears that if a player has armor on, when an attacker shoots at them, the attacker will see the victim drop, however, for everyone else, they are still alive and walking around.
Expected behavior: The player will stay standing until they’ve run out of both armor and health.
Actual behavior: The attacker will see the victim die, however, for everyone else, they will still be alive. The victim will remain “dead” for the attacker until they are resurrected again.
Steps to reproduce:

  1. Put on armor
  2. Get shot by someone, tell them to keep shooting until they see you go down.
  3. They will eventually see you go down, but for everyone else, you’re still alive.

Files for repro (if any): No client crashes
Error screenshot (if any): No error messages
.dmp files/report IDs: No crashes

Any additional info:

Here is a video further demonstrating the bug. Client A has a weapon, and Client B has full armor. Client A shoots until the player is down on their end. Client B is still alive, and attacks Client A until downed.

Couldn’t reproduce this earlier, gave full armor using vMenu, another player got given weapons, and no matter where on the body a player got shot, the target died at the same time for everyone.

I have this too, Vrp 0.5
Any Solution

I have this problem too.

Wow, you do? Maybe provide actual information on reproducing it instead of making this into some sort of “wow i feel for you having this problem” topic.

I have been trying to fix this problem for several weeks, but with no success, the video below shows the problem, the player dies the same as a ped, starting with a ragdoll and then dying for the shooter, but for the victim he is still alive, it will only really die after the 4th shot.

The problem happens in both Windows and Linux.

Are you running any script that messes with damage response?

I’m using the vRP Framework that controls when the player is in coma or not


Citizen.CreateThread(function() -- coma thread
  while true do
    local ped = GetPlayerPed(-1)
    local health = GetEntityHealth(ped)
    if health <= cfg.coma_threshold and coma_left > 0 then
      if not in_coma then -- go to coma state
        if IsEntityDead(ped) then -- if dead, resurrect
          local x,y,z = tvRP.getPosition()
          NetworkResurrectLocalPlayer(x, y, z, true, true, false)

        -- coma state
        in_coma = true
        vRPserver.updateHealth({cfg.coma_threshold}) -- force health update
        SetEntityHealth(ped, cfg.coma_threshold)
      else -- in coma
        -- maintain life
        if health < cfg.coma_threshold then 
          SetEntityHealth(ped, cfg.coma_threshold) 
      if in_coma then -- get out of coma state
        in_coma = false

        if coma_left <= 0 then -- get out of coma by death
          SetEntityHealth(ped, 0)

        SetTimeout(5000, function()  -- able to be in coma again after coma death after 5 seconds
          coma_left = cfg.coma_duration*60

We’re using vRP aswell, no general issues regarding PvP or damage.
Check if you have other scripts/resource which may interfere.

in all the resources these are those that use SetEntityHealth

there is this vRP Framework function

function tvRP.setFriendlyFire(flag)
  SetCanAttackFriendly(GetPlayerPed(-1), flag, flag)

and it is used in a playerSpawn event

AddEventHandler("vRP:playerSpawn",function(user_id, source, first_spawn)
  local data = vRP.getUserDataTable(user_id)

  -- disable police
  -- set friendly fire

Do you have pvp enabled in the vRP configuration file?


local cfg = {}

cfg = {
  thirst_per_minute = 0.00,
  hunger_per_minute = 0.00,
  overflow_damage_factor = 0,
  pvp = true,
  police = false

return cfg

without solution? :disappointed_relieved:

Pls, we really need help with this.

We cant find any trouble. That makes no sense at all.

another day without an answer…

For those of you who dont like reading the main topic.
