Having wait at the end of the use state is probably the issue (the wiki states that use states cannot have loops in them, and wait loops the last frame)

Well, it looks a little better than how it was before, but why is this in my thread?

Ugh. I still can't seem to get the TeleporterBeacon-like item to work. I can't figure what I'm doing wrong.

    Inventory.PickupMessage "You picked up the Support Beacon."

    States

      PTRB A 160
    Death:
      PTRB A 1
      Stop
  }
}

   }
}


Also, the fire spawning for the Molotov cocktail is still a bit buggy. I also can't figure out why it'll disappear immediately when the Molotov cocktail
directly hits something or gets really close to hitting something.

i'll deal with the molotov, but i say you need to add in flare sparks when it crack opens.

With the beacon, try:

1.Changing all durations to 0
2.Adding stop at the end

Other than that, I'm not sure what to try

Flare sparks? Can you elaborate on that? I'm not sure what you mean by that.

Would you want to take a look at the wadfile itself?

Sure. That would make it easier to figure out what's going wrong here.

InsanityBringer, I just sent you a pm with a link to my mod.

X-CraZyKooL-X, I get what you're saying. It shouldn't be too hard to implement. It's probably like the mech debris spawning. Graphics shouldn't be too hard to make too.

And I got it. Time to go play with the code until it works

Cool. Tell me what you also think of the mod so far as well. :)

Here are the modifications I made to the code

Spoiler:

The whole problem which I completly managed to overlook is that you used A_CustomMissile instead of A_FireCustomMissile. You want to use A_FireCustomMissile on anything player inventory releated

There is still a issue with it though. If you run into the object as it is being spawned, it fuses with you, but the cartoons should have told you that you should never do that, and in a cartoony mod, it shouldn't be a problem :P

As for the mod itself, I didn't get to play it too much (wanted to get the bug fixed), but I ran a few levels and it was pretty good and fun

Well, I'm glad the item's basic function works, but there's a small problem to it (besides the one you pointed out). I want it so that when I use the item, I throw the SupportBeacon and it would take a second or two until it activates, teleporting a friend. You know, kinda like how the Teleport Beacon or Dudukrazy's friend spawner works. Not sure if that makes sense or not... Also, is there a way to increase how far it gets thrown before being activated?
