Is it OK to make a Spirit of Half-Life map?
I have some problems with the scientists... when they die they leave blood on the walls but nothing else, and I think I could solve this easily with Spirit.

Everyone is making the rules, right? Your opinion matters.

Um... Idk. I think Spirit gives an advantage over the regular h-lers.

just like using quark in the geom challenges... :nuts:

Okey, I'll keep trying and see if I can find a way around it without using Spirit.
If nothing works I'll have to use monster_scientists instead of a monstermaker.

what are you trying to do?
And why isn't it working?
I'll be glad to share some input to see if i can help.

My monstermaker is producing scientists that fade away when they die.
They don't leave any gibs that I can turn into burgers.
Posted 14 years ago2008-05-30 13:05:38 UTC Post #250695
Find a way to hide it, or gib them before they fade? Or place some Shooters in there.

They don't die at the same spot each time, and it is impossible to predict in which order, at what location, or at what time they will die.
If they were just normal monster_scientists I could do a lot more.

potatis_invalid: It's ok with me if nobody else cares if you use spirit. It may be a little unfair, but it i don't care = )

Keep in mind like others have said there are many creative things you can do to make up with the limitations of HL and it's modest entities!

That makes me think... maybe we should have a Spirit Entity challenge after this one! I've never mapped for spirit and I would LOVE to try all extra entities. :badass:

My entry is going slowly but surely. Hopefully i can finish most of it this weekend.

I wont be able to finish my map this week.
I have to many things that needs to be done.
Next week, however, I'll have lots of free time and I'm sure I can finish the map then.

I think I'll make two versions.
One that uses Spirit, but only to stop the scientists from fading away (I think the monstermakers has a flag for that in Spirit).
And one for Half-Life that is exactly the same except that it teleports lots of monster_scientists from a hidden room, instead of using a monstermaker.

I updated my BIOS and now my computer doesn't boot. I can't reset the BIOS.
I probably wont be able to finish my entry for at least 3 weeks. :(

Flash the bios. Google it. Should work.

I'm guna start working on my entry again today. I'm thinking about making it first person, with the player playing a scientist that escapes the burger machine but gets to go behind the scenes to see other scientists get burgerized. = )

So far all i got is a hallway, some doors, the initial trap to get lure the scientists to the burger machine, a grappling arm to grab them, an escape so you can survive the process, a holding tank for scientists, and an elaborate conveyor system.

Flash the bios. Google it. Should work.
I don't have the skills to pull that off.
You see, the only thing that works right now is the fans, and not even they work like they should. I don't get any video output and when I unplug the RAM my computer beeps "Power error".
Posted 14 years ago2008-06-30 13:09:42 UTC Post #251993
Anybody can flash the Bios. Just get into the motherboard, and switch the bridge to the pins you need. That's where google comes in handy.

You just move the pin to the flash position, boot the computer, shut it down, move it back to the original position.

RL has been getting in the way of my mapping projects, so my Scientist Burger Entry is at a standstill. I might do a little moar work on it and submit it unfinished. Anyone else making progress on theirs?

I can reset the CMOS using a pin (which I have done over 50 times), but there is no way to reset the BIOS.
And I have Googled it many times.

Aight i maby have a good challenge for you on counter-strike 1.6

I want something that acts like a trigger random in sven co-ops for counter-strike 1.6 withouth the having the player walk over trigger_multiples to change the target.

So something like you have 1 button that will open 1 of the 5 doors as a random choice at the moment when you press it.

Ugh, CS.

Hah, thats easy. I happen to have such a feature in one of my maps. Not with door, but it is a random triggering system. No custom code, no Spirit.

Posted 14 years ago2008-08-15 22:56:12 UTC Post #253844
random selection? i would like to know how you did that.

right now all i can do is make them cycle through the 5 doors in a preset order.

:o muzzle tutorial plz! :D
Posted 14 years ago2008-08-16 05:07:42 UTC Post #253852
i will tell you the secret of magic muzzle ;)

it's a env_beam with a lot of targets...which all have the same name
and before the laser hits that target he damages a button with health.

He will always trigger a another one (random).

You know what I don't understand ? Half-Life is c++ based right ?
c++ has random numbers support , then why valve didn't include a trigger_random ?

Someone should really find a way to implement something like a trigger_random, it'd make things easier.

Trigger_random exists in Natural selection....for which you should make some maps :P

oh and im pretty sure SOHL got it too (not 100% sure though ;))

Look into "multi_alias" and "multi_manager" has more options.

Well, there are "random" triggers ;)
Posted 14 years ago2008-10-24 22:45:46 UTC Post #257602
well, yeah, i didnt look through the alias ones (and some others) cause i didn't know how to use them, so... yeah.
