I have a small game, when i got 3 points the scene restarts. I also have a lamp parented to the character. After the scene restarts the lamp doesnt show up anymore.
I also tried to respawn it without sucess. It only shows up in the first round. I also tried to put it on an overlay scene and trigger it using a keyboard trigger with same results.
EDIT: The "Game restart" rereads the game settings from blender again and guess what - i havent saved them :P Done.
