DeHackEd / BEX Reference/Eternity Extension: HELPER Block

From Eternity Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This block can be used to specify the type of thing the player will get for friendly helpers by using the -dogs command-line option. Rather than rewiring the MT_DOGS thing to make it emulate other enemies, you may now make this simple two-line substitution.

Syntax[edit]

  [HELPER]
  type = <thingnum>

<thingnum> is the DeHackEd number of the thing type you want to replace the dogs. If this value is out of range, dogs will spawn and a warning message will be posted to the player. It may be desirable to edit the height and radii of most things to make them work better as helpers Note that the dog jumping options also affect any helper substitute, and that all friendly things of the helper type are allowed to jump down to follow the player.
