It's already sorted and working don't worry about it. I was explaining to Hotwax that the only thing that was needed is already done (I managed to handle it myself) :wink:

CustomInventory can be made to behave either as respawning objects or objects that always stay. However, this behavior won't be togglable by the user like weapons are.

To force them to stay, simply change the Stop to Fail.

Won't such a custominventory item repeat it's pickup state every time you walk over it since won't be removed? I know it's possible to put checks in so that doesn't happen, but it's something to consider if that is the case.

Nope, there is actually an internal check where the item will fail if it fails to give you the last item. Since you can only have one weapon....

Edit: Actually there IS a way to let the player select it: make two types of items and set them to spawn on different difficulty levels. The modder specifies his own custom difficulties, and then the player gets those choices.

0.001% of megaman fans? :P

I might add some skins but that's all you're getting, I don't want to turn this into a class based mod.

Hey, Megaman Legends (aka 64) was a great game. It just wasn't very Megaman-ish. :P

And there ARE 8-bit sprites of helmetless Megaman, y'know. It probably wouldn't be all that hard to just copy/paste the hair onto the normal megaman sprites for the additional poses and edit out any remaining visible helmet bits.

I know, it's just not at the top of my priority list :P

Btw I sent a test version out for those who seemed keen who have helped me out in the past with Zportal and such. Still waiting for their thoughts on it.

Heh, this is what my vision of Super Mario Bros Deathmatch was originally going to be like, I have never played Megaman, and know nothing of it at all, but this looks pretty cool.

You can hop up on the platforms, and they go back and forth, but you have to move or they will slide out from under you.

I didn't play Megaman, so I dunno if that's original behavior or not. That's what I was asking.

I never played Gutsman's level, haha. I was just describing the behavior in the wad.

No no you could just stand on them and they'll carry you. However they occasionally go over thin wire which causes them to drop, meaning you can't stand on them and have to jump with them. I figured putting that in this would be FAR too evil as it's difficult to stay on them anyway. Also they're faster in Megaman.
