REQUEST: Teleporter Stuff

Post by CommanderSpleen » Thu Mar 31, 2011 11:05 am

1. More teleporters on the map (I think it's about 7 or 8 two-way sets). Still two different styles. One the same animation on both ends, the other a separate animation on each end.

2. In-level teleporters activate when Alt is pressed, instead of immediately upon collision.

For 2. a possible hack would be to use a switch tile that turns into a teleporter upon activation. However, it would permanently remain a teleporter and the effect would not be repeatable. It would need to be more like a miniaturised version of the falling block, changing the tile for a cycle or so and then changing it back. The movie goes on, and nobody in the audience has any idea.

Edit: Well I've managed to simplify the map so I can get away with the usual two teleporters.

Also it occurred to me that the hack solution for 2. above wouldn't work, as it would be interpreted as a bridge. :derp While that detail isn't exactly crucial, it would still be very handy to figure out.
