Similar occurences

Post by NighTTripper » Tue Apr 04, 2006 9:09 pm

I noticed, like others, that power-ups disappear into walls, but I also noticed in a mine, of my own creation, that the power-ups circle around my ship. They should just spin in one spot, not circle around. I think that's what the disappearing power-uups are doing, but in a small area, they go through walls. This observation happened in a HUGE room I created, so I could actually see the full behaviour of the power-ups. Also, when I went BACK to vanilla Descent2, my ship and the power-ups were oscillating VERY fast and movement was too fast to play. :) I hope this sheds more light on the problem. :)

To verify this you need to sit still in front of the powerup and then observe it circle around your ship. If you are moving around the powerup and it seems to move, that's an effect of the 3D -> 2D projection the rendering engine does.

Diedel,

NighTTripper meant for this to be in your questions thread, should I \"quote\" his and your responses in that thread and delete this thread?
