Release protection

Here's a shot of the release protection effect our coder Crokx is currently working on. For those new to Jailbreak, release protection is one of several anti-llama systems. It makes released prisoners impervious to weapons fire for a short time, to make camping the jail exit pointless. It allows players to get home to base safely, but it comes at a price: either you can't inflict any damage to other players while you are protected, or as soon as you fire upon a player, your protection is removed. This option, as well as the protection time, can be set in the configuration options.

Release protection is a basic component of Jailbreak, but under our modular approach to code design, it is coded as a mutator. All Jailbreak-specific mutators will be grouped into their own tab in the UT2003 game setup interface.
