what? why? there's no need in that. What I mean - monster simply teleports over time similar to Korax.

Unfortunately one monster there uses custom teleportation movement, I am not sure DECORATE will be enouph to make him.


If you want to borrow any part of my blink imp code, or borrow any ideas from it, feel free: :)

Code: Select all
final void A_BlinkOut()
{
   bTeleport = true;
   bSolid = false;
   bShootable = false;
   bActivateMCross = false;
   bActivatePushWall = false;
   bDropOff = true;
   bInvulnerable = true;
   bNonShootable = true;
   bAvoidingDropoff = false;
   bColideWithThings = false;
   bHidden = true;
   MaxStepHeight = 1000.0;
   StepSpeed = itof((P_Random() % 33) + 32);
}

final void A_BlinkIn()
{
   bTeleport = false;
   bSolid = true;
   bShootable = true;
   bActivateMCross = true;
   bActivatePushWall = true;
   bDropOff = false;
   bInvulnerable = false;
   bNonShootable = false;
   bColideWithThings = true;
   bHidden = false;
   MaxStepHeight = 24.0;
   StepSpeed = 8.0;
}


...and...

Code: Select all
Blink:
   TROO A 0 A_BlinkOut
   TROO AABBCCD 0 A_Chase
   TROO AABBCCD 0 A_Chase
   TROO AABBCCD 0 A_Chase
   TROO A 0 A_BlinkIn
   Goto See


...with special attack and FaceTarget functions (starting with calls to A_BlinkIn of course) to make sure it can't attack without returning to its normal state. Of course, that is to create a fairly random seeming teleport to make things unpredictable, and may not be at all what you want. :?
