R15 Ragdolls / Humanoids

So I’m actually stuck making R15 ragdolls. I’ve tried like 6 different methods. Every single one, works fine in Studio, doesn’t work online. This is how they usually look:

I’ve done every single thing possible. BreakJoints, Humanoid.ChangeState, SetNetworkOwner, everything. I simply cannot get them to work with Humanoids, and there’s no way to get clothing on an NPC without a Humanoid that I know of. If I don’t use Humanoids though I can make the ragdoll parts work pretty well.

What am I missing here? How do I do this properly?

@EchoReaper created a pretty good R15 ragdoll, I’d recommend taking a look it. https://devforum.roblox.com/t/r15-ragdoll-public-domain/31291

Tried it, but I’m trying to make persistent ragdolls, so they stay in the game. I actually dissected this script and made it work like that as one of my attempts, also didn’t work, did similar stuff to above.

You’re going to need to provide much more information on what went wrong if you want a decent answer.

Edit your own rag doll script to have the rag doll persist, and try it online mode, it’ll look like the screen shot I posted.

Feel free to take a look at my Ragdoll script:

I’ve tested it online, and it’s used in a shooter game I developed a few months ago.

I assume by persist, you mean that the ragdoll doesn’t dissappear if the player leaves, or the character is destroyed, correct?



I also noticed something else, if the game is R15 and the Humanoid is set to R6, it acts like there’s no Humanoid inside. So my rag doll without a Humanoid actually works perfectly online. As soon as I set it to R15 it starts acting weird, this is my current iteration of the ragdoll script:

Not sure why Humanoids have to cause so much problems. It literally works without the Humanoid inside but Clothing only renders why a Humanoid for some reason.

Update: having some major network ownership issues.

If I don’t set ownership, it’s very glitchy.

If I set it to nil, it’s still kinda glitchy.

If I set it to the murderer though, I disabled ragdoll collisions with everyone but the murderer, and it makes the gameplay for that person very smooth… until they walk away, then they start glitching out like crazy. I think I might have to try anchoring them if the murderer walks away. Does network ownership fire .Changed? As far I can tell there’s no way to check with the network owner switches.
