Meteor 2 Boss Test Modification
Boss Test wrote:
This mod an experiment with scripting in meteor 2 to make boss fights unequalled in pleasure compared to the common roaming pistol-troopers.

Currently only one boss is being worked on - Boss alpha, who has a mysterious deep voice. I will not mention anything other than two aspects of his behaviour here.
1. The lower your health, the easier the goons will be. This is a double-edged sword, as goons drop health when killed.
2. The boss becomes more impatient the more he is hurt, desiring to more often pull tricks and move back to his throne as his health drops.

And finally a tip:
1. To be in range to hurt the boss, he is in range to hurt you. Duck in when he is not firing to fire at him.


LZMA .7z version http://www.filedropper.com/bosstest 6.3 mb



A buglist:

1. Boss can walk through pillars. Unavoidable. The M2 engine allows objects of this size to walk through solid sectors as small as the pillars.
2. Boss crash at 200hp. Scripting problem - need help here
3. Boss can get stuck at his throne area. Will add anti-ninja lines so he cannot warp behind the player to that location
4. Boss comes out before all goons are dead. Don't know - an odd bug.
5. No end scene once boss is killed. Work in progress
6. Standing right in front of the boss ( against his belly ) he cannot shoot you. I'm going to make his projectile longer to fix this.

Regards, William

My website: http://halestrom.net/darksleep@Occasionally you may meet me when you sleep. In the darkest corners of your dreams, where your phone stops working and you don't know what to do. I'll be there; telling you that I don't support your device.

"Can't you just fix-"
NO! I told you when you bought this, when it goes wrong I can't fix it. It's filled with glue. The Greek goddess of glue Araldities herself would be impressed with this.

Please stop asking me for technical support during your dreams. Can't we just tour some surreal landscapes instead?

"How do I do that?"

Count your fingers. Keep trying. Make sure there's ten.

Then summon me. I am large and covered in wires. Clouds of baking soda pour into your world and a slightly weak yellowy glow appears from the LED strips behind me.

If you can see this message then you're already part of the way there. Keep all your styles disabled and you might see the dream within.

"But there's so much javascript everywhere! I can't see you. Help! I've forgotten to count my fingers! Where do I find them?"

The LED strip behind me pops and goes out. Dark spots appear in the centre of each light. I lift my finger to my lips. The smell of tantalum capacitors fills the air.

Ssh. Don't worry about that. Behind those frameworks there's another person sleeping.

Some day the javascript will sleep too.

Holy shit my adrenaline is pumping working with fixing problem number 2. Excuse the language, but this boss gets hard when it hits 200hp.

This mod would probably be a bit more fun if there were more than one weapon, and maybe a clever way you could do extra damage to the boss dude. As it is, we're pretty much just shooting him 10000 times, and that kinda gets old =)
