View Full Version : I'm so good that I can even telefrag myself.

If you put in more than one player 1 start, you get a second marine who doesn't do very much. If you shoot him, you lose health.
I then decided it might be fun to put a teleporter destination on top of him and telefrag him! Ouch. http://forums.newdoom.com/UBB/smilies/cwm32.gif

That trick won't work with Legacy.
Legacy removed the phantom marine error a long time ago. The unused player starts are just ignored by the game.
That's kind of too bad. In one level I made (never released), I started by having the player getting separated from his platoon by a cave in. I used extra player starts to create the entire platoon. There was a tripwire surounding the player, so that the cave in would occur at the very moment he moved. It was quite effective.

So thats I don't instatly die on map 30 of TNT when I take that warp. Also makes the level easier (I think) because its set to end level when less than 20 health (I think).
