Hexen Flechettes

Post by Nanami »

In a recent thread it was pointed out that you can use all three flechettes in a Doom game using ACS, and you (Randy) added a new feature so you could give all three different inventory graphics.

I tried adding ARTIPSBG and then ARTIPSB1 but that didn't work, so I tried reversing the order and that didn't work, so I tried just including ARTIPSB1 and ARTIPSB3 and it didn't work, so the new sprites aren't being read... do I need to move them?

Also, the engine doesn't treat the different flechettes like normal items. For instance, if you use "Give All" you don't get any of the other flechette, only the fighter's. Also, you can't summon or give "ArtiPoisonBagx" through the console, so testing is rather difficult.

I wonder if it could be extended to work like this?

Okay, I know you're not this stupid, but just to be thorough... you've supplied to missing graphics, right? :)

Oh, I just found the problem. The new sprites have to be OUTSIDE the S_START and S_END markers (like TITLEPIC and ARTIBOX and such). That's no problem...

But I'd still like to see the feature added so testing would be much easier. And so the "give all" cheat would truly give all. =)

It used to, I thought that was pretty neat. It would be nice if it gave all classes weapons as well. It is a cheat after all, its not going to ruin peoples gameplay anymore that what the cheat already does.

That has more to do with KEYCONF than with cheats. Although, testing just now, "setslot 5 mweapbloodscourge" doesn't work in Hexen (unless you're the mage).
