Let me help you out there...

How the heck do you get 'discs of repulsion' in Doom?

This doesn't seem possible!!!!

Something like "Summon ArtiDisc" I'd guess.

If you add the sprites to the wad and then either use a script or a summon command to add "ArtiBlastRadius," you can use it. ZooM has the disc of repulsion in it. It's pretty fun.

actually if I recall correctly when an arch-vile attacks another monster it's actually it's flame thing doing the attacking, so if whoever it's attacking does get pissed it will get mad at what's attacking it, which would be the flame, and since the flame goes away (dies) a second later, then the hurt monster thinks it has triumphed and the archie can continue pounding away at him unscathed

Possibly, but other monsters use projectile attacks and the target has no trouble tracing that back to its source. :)

To quote the original Doom source code:

Code: Select all

    if ( (!target->threshold || target->type == MT_VILE)
	 && source && source != target
	 && source->type != MT_VILE)
    {
	// if not intent on another player,
	// chase after this one
	target->target = source;
	target->threshold = BASETHRESHOLD;
	if (target->state == &states[target->info->spawnstate]
	    && target->info->seestate != S_NULL)
	    P_SetMobjState (target, target->info->seestate);
    }
What that means is that when the Archvile is the target of an attack, it will always retaliate, and if the Archvile is the attacker (the source), the victim will never retaliate against it.

steve: well I was actually under the impression that the arch vile flame was more of a monster than a projectile that was spawned over the target, but going by the source randy just posted (which I never bothered to check on myself, doh) that's not correct anyways. double doh
