Teleport Special noobery...

Postby Ravick » Sat May 19, 2018 3:52 am

Hi there.


So, I know this is an over-noobery question, and I'm around here for a few years already and stuff... but I've actually never used line-teleport in my maps before. (:B) At least, not without ACS to help. I'm trying to learn how it is done without it now.

Ok. I've set a line this way:

Spoiler:


The editor does even recognize the right teleport destination to go:

However, in game, passing over the line does nothing. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advanced. :)

Putting the special directly on a line or using it from a script should be the same I believe. My mapping skills are quite rusty, but still, I don't see anything wrong with your setup.

You should omit the extension from the link. As for the [img] tag, see this.

Did you try crossing the line from both directions? If I recall correctly it works only from the front side of the line. You might try to flip the linedef.

Yes, as gwHero already mentioned, cross the linedef from the front.

I've tried to cross from both sides already. I've searched for tutorials about it, and found this front-side-only trick yesterday, but it keeps not working. =/

I've uploaded an 'excerpt' of the map here, in case someone wants to take a look at it. Now, I've put the teleport special in a square in the ground, whitin the player spawns, just for the sake of testing and trying. An also mapper friend of mine has take a look at this excerpt too just moments ago, but could not tell what I did wrong. Another friend told me I had to set a TID for the sector the teleport destination is, but it also didn't work.

I'm lost here. I can't tell what is wrong. I know I can make 'ACS kludges' to make it work, but I was willing to learn the 'propper' way to do it.
In anyway, thanks for the help so far, pals.

Now I'm kinda ashamed for not seeing this size 'n bandwidth consuming issue before. I guess I've did those mistakes this in older posts. :S I'll give preference to post links to images instead of the images itself from now on!

Hi, I nailed it: the teleport destination spot does not have the 'singleplayer' checkbox checked.

Don't feel ashamed! Sometimes the error is something you'd least expect :)
Glad we could help here.
