    Demo spawning without shield, almost all the time and in unusual cases, without a primary (loose cannon). Sometimes in red there are times when I spawn without a melee (half zatoichi specifically). None of this should happen, any chance these could get fixed quickly?

    Oh, yes, I have also experienced this issue quite a lot of times before, and it's quite irritating to be honest.
    Lord @Noodl@Noodl, sorry, but could you fix this?

    Probably wont be fixed, this issue is common in all servers and will most likely not change considering its a temporary petty issue.

    All of the issues I mentioned at the top can be fixed.

    "Fixed quickly" is usually not something that happens with Jailbreak given the plugin is 8000+ lines of code, which isn't always logical. I might have a look when I have some free time and have less important/interesting things to write.

    Demos spawning without shields is not a bug, it's actually a cvar with intentional behaviour. The description is "Stop the Demoman class from charging with shields: (1 = yes, 0 = no)" which infers all demomen, but the code to find and delete shields only runs on red demo spawns... but for all players. So it's a bit dumb and ambiguous.

    Nothing explicit about swords nor stripping other weapons, so I'd need to go investigate myself.
