Eggman
 
1 Attachment(s)
The obligatory playable Eggman wad. Comes in Egg Mobile and Sea Egg flavors.

Spoiler: Ability List
~Shoot [Custom 1]~
Fires a shot or torpedo forward. If an enemy is targeted, multiple shots will be fired at the target.

~Boost [Custom 2]~
Instantly thrusts forward at an increased speed. Drains rings if used by the Egg Mobile.

~Spikes [Custom 2]~
Only usable by the Egg Mobile. Replaces the Boost ability when an enemy is targeted. Spawns several spikes and lunges at the target, scattering the spikes in random directions upon impact. Costs 2 rings.

~Dummy [Custom 2]~
Only usable by the Sea Egg. Replaces the Boost ability when an enemy is targeted. Sends out a dummy to harass the target, exploding after approximately 2 seconds. Costs 6 rings.

~Lock-On [Custom 3]~
Searches for a target and locks on to it. Targeting an enemy changes the behavior of the Custom 1 and Custom 2 abilities.

~Bomb [Toss Flag]~
Only usable by the Egg Mobile. Tosses a large bomb which explodes in a pattern. Colliding with the fire it leaves behind is not advised. Costs 4 rings.

~Shock [Toss Flag]~
Only usable by the Sea Egg. Shocks the water, damaging all enemies within range. Costs 8 rings.
~Notes~
Custom action controls must be mapped in the options menu if you haven't done so already.
Eggman starts each level with 8 HP, and you aren't getting any of it back unless you complete the level or die.
You can turn super in multiplayer by pressing Custom Action 3.

This definitely needs to be played in first person mode to be even remotely practical, but being able to fly around in the Eggmobile while firing lasers and bombs is a blast so I really don't mind. Welcome to releases~

What about if we... no wait, because the concept of shooting down players using eggman you can do it on Deathmatch mode, im right?

Rex The Kitsune 03-21-2014 02:02 PM

Wow! This is amazing! If this is made in Lua, then I am thoroughly convinced that we have some great wads coming. :D

Katmint 03-21-2014 04:35 PM

I forgot to fix the end level sign, so I just did so. Please redownload it.

I knew it, but thanks anyway

It appears that, through simple testing, that Eggman is incapable of turning super. This may be due to his inability to jump, and thus preform an action to become said super form. An alternative to this would be a key to pull off a MT_THOK action. However, I am unsure as to if Eggman has been rendered incapable of doing this as a balance action.

Puppyfaic 03-21-2014 07:20 PM

This is really authentic and cool. Only thing that upsets me is the lack of a dash button :<

Katmint 03-21-2014 07:56 PM

There's no keys to dash or turn super because I simply ran out of buttons. Lua can't add entirely new keys, so I'm stuck with the very limited selection that SRB2 comes with. The only button Eggman currently doesn't use is BT_ATTACK and I don't want to mess with that button because it would conflict with the ring toss in multiplayer.

Katmint 03-21-2014 10:51 PM

Update: Fixed all of the skin change bugs and a zoomtube bug.

Update 2: Fixed the broken life monitor icon.

I found a glitch with the bomb.

And then the game slows down to like 1 frame per second.

Katmint 03-22-2014 12:06 AM

The bomb has its fair share of glitches, but I can't do anything about them since they are SRB2's fault. You'd be better off putting any incidents of dubious bomb behavior in Bug Reports instead.

Iceman404 03-22-2014 12:44 AM

I'm just guessing but, in that gif the bomb thinks it touched a floor and played it's disperse effect, but it's really THZ slime so it doesn't actually explode. All of the little fires probably use the fire tag on them, so it's spawning tons and tons per every tic it's in the slime for and they keep getting despawned?

A similar thing happens if the bomb gets stuck in a corner somehow. But there is also ear rape

I've created a bug report about the bomb issues here. Please direct all further bomb glitch posts to that thread.

EDIT: The bug is now fixed. The bomb should work fine when the next patch of SRB2 is released.

Shadow Hog 03-22-2014 05:13 PM

To be fair, the bomb was only ever intended to be used in Egg Rock Core Zone, so a lot of these cases would never have arisen.

I'm not even sure how, though. It's supposed to remove itself when it shoots out the objects, not repeatedly shoot out a bajillion objects instead.

Was it intentional for Eggman to be super-duper sluggish? I feel it would have made more sense for him to have instant acceleration/deceleration, like the normal GFZ3 boss. Was it also intentional for Eggman's missile to not make any noise?

Katmint 03-24-2014 12:57 AM

The acceleration is there partly for balance and partly because I find playing a character with zero momentum boring. Also, the dash gimmick wouldn't work at all if acceleration was instant.
