By the way, is it possible to explain the purpose of the other flags? I know what 0, 1 and 2 are for but the Wikia is not very clear about the meaning of the others.

They're not part of the official API and thus off-limits to users. LunaCON will disallow setting them unless we specify the meaning of each one clearly and unambiguously. No more guessing and half-baked workarounds!

[Edit: it's not my intent to criticize anyone's work, but I hope it's clear that exposing functionality that is not 100% understood is just a dead end.]

is a command exist to make a zoom of the screen (usable for a sniper weapon for example)...
another command to set a "hit radius" for a melee weapon ? the defineprojectile xxx PROJ_RANGE seems to set the depth but not a radius around the player...

setactor[THISACTOR].xrepeat X
setactor[THISACTOR].yrepeat Y


I have used this within eventloadactor and it does nothing. Including these strings with ifactor inside EVENT_GAME also does nothing. The only thing which have worked is old style sizeat at the beginning of the actor code, but it resizes the actor upon seeing the player, which is bad. What am I doing wrong? :/

First of all, you have actually set the gamevars X or Y to an actual value, right? Because you have posted a small fragment of code.

Making an explosive hitscan would require more work.

Not too much, though. You could set PROJ_SPAWNS to an actor that explodes with whatever hitradius you want.

That wouldn't work very well. The PROJ_SPAWNS seems to be flawed, besides half of the time it spawns inside of walls canceling the radius explosion. Also it would not return the ownership of the actor firing the hitscan, thus multiplayer score would not work.

Of course, I am not that stupid :lol: Anyway the whole thing looked like this:

eventloadactor MOSQUITO
setactor[THISACTOR].xrepeat 10
setactor[THISACTOR].yrepeat 10
enda


Why it doesn't work? WHYYYY? :lol:

Maybe it's because in erampage, but it should work...

Is MOSQUITO a hard-coded actor?

Hard-coded or not, why is it resized freely by "sizeat", but not by the code from above?

If it's hard-coded, the hard-coded stuff happens after eventloadactor, so it's being reset to the hard-coded size

That´s something I´m also interested in.

Yes, but it muste be a hitradius that not hurt the player, only enemy. And a "knee" weapon style, not explosion ...

As we know in Duke Nukem, RESPAWN "passes" its pal to the spawned sprite. The same thing happened in the original Redneck.

I have an enemy, which does a few things upon dying when spritepal 30, 31 or 32. It works, when that enemy is put on the ground in Build. However, when it is spawned by a RESPAWN it does nothing and judging from its spritepal dependant behaviour it has pal 0. I've come with an idea to put the foe on the conveyor belt, where it could be moved into the silent teleport. But somehow it doesn't bother the conveyor belt's motion and it doesn't fall into the teleport's chasm even though it has 'fall' command in its code. Changing 'actor' to useractor enemy' also doesn't change things.

I've tried to code it out in EVENT_GAME. Maybe my logic is wrong, but I will show, what was done:

gamevar OWNER 0 0
gamevar PAL 0 0

ifactor MAMA
getactor[THISACTOR].owner OWNER
ifvare OWNER RESPAWN getactor[OWNER].pal PAL
setactor[THISACTOR].pal PAL //OR ifvare PAL 30 spritepal 30


It doesn't work. Is there a workaround to have that enemy appear on demand and do the special actions?

I think there was a thing with Duke's enemies that they had to "see" you first for their code to run, or something like that. IIRC fall is one of those. (I can remember the Enforcer's on episode 2 falling after they see you, in the first level.)

It's not true only for enemies, but any actor, including all the FEM actors.

But I have put a NEWBEAST clone in my Fury161r map and it was transported by a conveyor belt even though it hasn't seen the player...

Not really, in the bosses case it has been hard-coded to work that way. Surprisingly the Assault Tropper has been forgotten, as a result it fails to respawn Captains instead.

So do you have any idea what I could do, except of just putting the enemy on the ground?

There are some problems with your code. First of all the .owner may be reseted after EVENT_EGS, so you should save it to a gamevar before.

Also shouldn't the code after "ifactor MAMA" be inside of brackets? Without it the code would attempt to change the pal of all sprites, including the RESPAWN ones.

I think it doesn't apply here since EVENT_GAME runs regardless of the actor being seen yet by player or not.

I wonder if there are some improvements on the water effects for eduke: water distortion, water reflection, waves... ? something more realistic

The current mirror code can combine with parallax mapping to do an OK water effect, but it's definitely not ideal; having a real water effect is something I'm planning to do at some point.

Not necessarily, you would just need to set up a view portal with Polymer.

There is currently no way to give Polymer the information. Same with the screenshot of E1L1 windows reflecting.
