A_RaiseSiblings [(int flags)]


Resurrects the calling actor's siblings. 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 actors 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 whose sole purpose is to revive its master and siblings through its own death. When killed, its death state triggers A_RaiseSiblings, reviving all of the other monsters who were spawned by its master.
