Thread: heroes sprinting?

  
  1. #1

    Default heroes sprinting?

    I guess its a keeperFX feature, because i don't remember this happening in the old DK. Whenever heroes are attacking me, they randomly go super fast for several seconds. Anyway to fix?

    its an add_party_to_level command.

    I have seen this sometimes. Don't think it is a feature but a bug, if you have a way to easily reproduce it you could report it and it will get fixed.

    Default Re: heroes sprinting?

    I'm using unpatched 0.4.5. Its been happening consistently on all maps so far (I'm up to editing level 4). I thought before it was because they were following a tunneler who was their leader but nope, its happening with a simple add to party command now... heres my level 4 script:

    Could you make a savegame from before it happens, and share the savegame with me? I'll load it, and will see what happens for me.

    Default Re: heroes sprinting?

    heres the map and the savegame. i can also make a video of them walking 100 miles an hour if you want.. its not normal lol. Its the knight and his dudes basically at the end, let the imp trigger the action point.

    Default Re: heroes sprinting?

    Couldn't load your save, so I had to play a bit of the level,... so many heroes.

    In any case, I see what you mean, and reported the issue: https://code.google.com/p/keeperfx/issues/detail?id=456

    Default Re: heroes sprinting?

    ADD_CREATURE_TO_LEVEL instead of ADD_PARTY_TO_LEVEL seemed to fix the issue (just tested). I guess i could rescript it every time i want them to move at a normal pace. It has downsides though if i want level and creature variety in enemy heroes, ill run into the 48 limit fast lol.

    Default Re: heroes sprinting?

    Try it with a party without a horned reaper,... perhaps his massive speed is somehow addictive to the other heroes.

  9. #9

    Default Re: heroes sprinting?

    nah its not that, like i said it works perfectly with add_creature_to_level. Besides i had parties with just giants and dwarfs in level 2 which also moved uber fast.

    Im pretty sure its a keeperfx "fix" in order to make the game harder and to make the creatures stick together more.

    you can also see here from some random dude on youtube that his pace is fine since he's either using an old keeperfx version or gold dk or whatever: http://youtu.be/RV22BWBFvYg?t=18m27s

    another problem i have is my tab on the left (creature/room/spell etc panel) randomly disappearing. It's a simple fix to press tab again but still.

    Also, do you know the 3 default fear values from original DK? I'm not a fan of the idea, and i dont care if my flies die.

    edit: actually is there a .cfg file collection with ALL default values for all creatures from original dk? That'd be great. Or was fear the only thing changed?

    Other than that keeperfx is good

    Default Re: heroes sprinting?

    I'm pretty sure it is not a conscious decision for KeeperFX,... I've seen the list of changes, and this aint there....

    Are you sure your sidebar is randomly disappearing? Because yes you can hide it by pressing tab, and show it again by pressing tab.

    Fear truly is messed up yes,... Original DK did not have 3 separate fear values,... just one setting on how low health had to be before the creature retreated. That would be the fear wounded in KeeperFX. You can set it to 12 for most creatures, 0 for skeleton/vampire to get that to the original setting. The FearNoFleeFactor you can set to '1'(as that multiplies fear when you enable fleeing). The FearStronger did not exist. If you select a really big value creatures will never run away from stronger creatures, so just like in the original.
