PATCH: Immortal vortikid in Keen 2

Post by KeenRush » Thu Jul 08, 2004 12:46 pm

We here at Mortimer Labs have found a solution for making those annoying vortikids immortal in Keen 2.
This patch should work. >:)

Code: Select all

# Immortal vortikid in Keen 2 v. 1.31
%patch $40A1 $90 $90
%patch $40A6 $EB
I hope it works correct, at least it seems so. When I took that immortal scrub patch to my Keen 2 mod, I thought that I could take a look if the vortikid worked the same way. Well, seems that they work. :) Big thanks to adurdin, this is the same patch he posted for making scrubs immortal, but I changed those addresses.

Enjoy LevelLord! :)

Edit: Added 'PATCH: ' to the topic subject..

How could you do that !!!!. If you could change the amount of shots atleast something could be done with it. but this really can't be used in anyway without just annoying the player.I expect even levellord will be wise enough not to use this patch.

Depends on how you use it. From what I can gather, the Vortikid AI doesn't change direction on its own--the Vortikid's gotta bump into a wall before it'll turn around. Which means if the Vortikid starts up high and is presented with a long ramp down to its doom, the Vortikid isn't going to think twice about plunging all the way down and off the screen. Making it invincible/immortal during this plunge just means that Mr. Keen has to dodge all the faster, or be swept away in a current of Vortikid. Or something.

I'm using a form of this in my Keen3 mod, with some alterations of course. But just remember--although the Vortikids run in one direction until they hit a wall... they do jump very very high sometimes.
