Anubis

Post by Xaser »

I have found a command called "anubis" that you can activate with the console. When I turn it on, it says "Quake with fear", but I still have no clue what it does. Any help?

anubis
Toggles monster fear on and off. Scared monsters will run away from you and attack less frequently

Yea, good AI improvement... but really, the creatures in DooM are undead and demons. They don't scare. ;)

Ditto Heretic. Generally just undead and demons. Again, those don't scare.

HeXen, on the other hand, has some creatures that theoretocially could scare. I mean, Etting weren't exactly supposed ot be the brightest of creatures. *ponders using that key in HeXen..*

If ZDoom supported Unreal1, this feature could be used on the Nali's :P

I have some dehacked monsters that are set to run away from the player. When I "anubis" the monsters on the level, all the normal monsters run away, but the ones that usually run get a sudden courage boost and come walking up to you (albeit that they harldy ever attack). :)

Negative speed value? Do you have to reverse the frames as well so they don't walk backward or do they turn around on their own?

I remember hearing about this a while back, and I remember this being an issue that was mentioned. I just can't remember if it actually turned out to be a problem.

You have to reverse the walking sprites otherwise they look like they are "moonwalking" all over the map. Attack, pain and death frames (even if drawn from more than angle 0) are OK because the hack only affects movement and all these frames are played when the monster is standing still.

The only thing that looks a little odd is some of my enemies still have a distant attack. When the turn to face player frame is played, they turn instantly from walking away to facing you. Doesn't look too bad, and you can get round it with an extra frame or two if you want.

Hmm... Maybe I'll mention this to Epyo at Doomworld and see if he'll make an updated version of Pacman Doom with that feature. That would rule!

Technically, the ghosts in Pacman don't run away from you when you get a power pill. They all immediately reverse direction, and it seems (though I can't be positive) that while the effect lasts, they simply reverse the normal direction in which their AI would have them go. Because they have limited and varied intelligence, this means that some of them will actually tend to turn towards you MORE often than before.

Just an observation. :)
