A_RaiseChildren [(int flags)]


Resurrects the calling actor's children. Currently the only function that sets the necessary information is A_SpawnItemEx.


  • flags: The following flags can be combined using the bit-wise OR operator (|):
    • RF_TRANSFERFRIENDLINESS — the resurrected actors will change their affiliation to match that of the calling actor.
    • RF_NOCHECKPOSITION — resurrect the actor without checking for room.

Monsters spawned with A_SpawnProjectile are not affected by this. A_SpawnProjectile was never designed to spawn monsters.


The following is a variant of the doom imp, a monster that spawns clones of itself. Its missile state uses A_Jump to decide on using one of two different attacks. Either spawning a clone, or triggering A_RaiseChildren, reviving all clones that were already spawned and had died.
