I'm not sure it does happens anywhere else but it surely does work here.

Reproducible
Always

Shooting through a wall at Prawn Island.

Idk.

Here's the link to a video I recorded.
I'm beginning to feel like a Lag God, Lag God

Really hard to fix this considering it's an engine limitation. Unless you make the player collision box bigger, but that is out of question i guess.

Maybe check if the player is facing a wall and prevent him from shooting at all. Idk.

Antiwallglitch works by checking if the line of sight from the player's head to the source of the shot is clear. Sometimes it won't work because the player's head is also in the wall.

It's pretty much a common glitch that happens in vc-mp quite alot but as for the exact reason I'm not sure why.

From Littlewhitey's glitching guidelines topic: http://forum.littlewhiteys.co.uk/index.php/topic,16931.0.html

Wall-Glitching/Collision Glitching from a roof

Video: Wall-Glitching from a roof top. (PERSPECTIVE 1)

 Wall-Glitching from a roof top. (PERSPECTIVE 2)
http://www.xfire.com/videos/5afd0b

What is it?: This happens when another player is standing on top of a roof firing at another player below. The shots from the weapon glitch through the edge of the roof hitting the player below. As a result of this players on roofs are able to kill players below them however it's not possible for the player to damage the player on the roof back from that angle.

Why is it a glitch?: The rounds from the person on the roofs weapon glitch through the solid edge of the roof. The player on top can see the player on the bottom however the player at the bottom can not see the player on the top clearly. The reason for this I am uncertain I believe it has something to do with the positioning of Vice City's camera in 3rd person and perhaps the height of reticle being higher than the actual player model combined with a "If you can aim at it with the cursor you can hit it" system ingame.

Allowed ingame: No, do not do this. However, this can be easily done by mistake in a fast paced situation. Instinct tells the player that if they are standing too close to the edge of the roof and are being shot at from below too move back away from the edge. Some players may not even realise they are doing this therefore admins should be more forgiving when a player does this.
