Description

Bad guys spawned by the spawnmobj console command automatically wake up and seek the player if they are spawned in a sector/area of the map that the player has fired a gunshot in.

Apparently, this has to do with the fact that there is a "shot has been fired in this sector" state but it’s non-obvious because vanilla doom doesn't clear the sound traversal thread.

Personally, I'd like to see this behaviour kept and an optional addition to the command be added to correct it (i.e. that that the spawnmobj command be able to spawn bad guys that are deaf, non deaf or wake up on spawn and target the caller of the console command (or activatator if the command is called via XG or Infine). To link back to the this old RFE: https://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=2231156&group_id=74815&atid=542102
