The "How do I make a weapon do that?" thread

Ivory, If you do not like this topic you can lock it.

In this topic you can politely ask how or why your weapon is doing something/acting starangely. Hopefully someone will politely help you.

For me:
Why doesn't SlumpED recognize the Scale 2.0?

^ Recognize? I don't remember correctly but maybe Slumped is far behind on ZDoom coding, so probably Scale doesn't appears blue like many other flags. Otherwise, I'm not sure what you're trying to say.

Due to my personal issues with SlumpEd, I have left it long ago to use Slade, which is much more flexible and recognize many flags, actions, states and properties that aren't even coded into skulltag but are somewhat recent in ZDoom. BUT be sure to NOT use the MM8BDM Launcher  to playtest your stuff, 'cause it WILL crash Slade (dunno why, but does often here.)

There are two ways to do this. One is the Mega Buster/Proto Buster style, the other is a custom, two "hold" style. For either, check these:

Arrow Shot (uses the same system as Mega Buster or Proto Buster):

Aurora Cannon (Uses the custom "twin hold" style):

Further questions, feel free to ask in my thread or through Personal Message, I'm always active.

How could I make a weapon fly in an arc? I'm (thinking) about doing the Tornado Hold.

Make a normal projectile and add the flag "-NOGRAVITY" to make it be affected by the gravity pull. Then add a behavior like that of the Flame Blast (except it will spawn a fan instead of a flame tower)

You mean the rotation, eh? I know many who are capable. Tomorrow I can do for you, if you can find none.

I suppose I'll ask here the question from my dead thread.

How to make projectiles blocked by linedefs that are only set to block players?

And does anyone know how to get global variables to function globally?

Test if the monster combo allows the object to pass through it or not (but keep "projectile" out of it)
If the object is blocked, then the anser might lie in the activation of these flags:
*CANPUSHWALLS
    Upon hitting a wall this actor can activate P1/PR lines.
    ? Automatically given by the Monster combo

*ACTIVATEMCROSS
    This actor can activate 'Monster crosses' lines.
    ? Automatically given by the Monster combo

But I'm not sure, so....

I want to make a weapon that stops you from moving whenever you charge up. It works like proto buster does and I want it to stop the player whenever from moving and jumping when charging up. (Turning is still possible)
