Legendary, I have a suggestion. Add an extra check for line of sight in the part that starts the music when a leg wakes up.
This will fix the situation when there's a leg in a teleport ambush, and it wakes up as soon as you shoot, but you don't actually fight it until later, while its music keeps playing.
Here's how it can be done:

Code: Select all

See:
   TNT1 A 0 A_JumpIf(user_music == 1,3)
   TNT1 A 0 A_CheckSight(2) // Added part. If there's no line of sight to any player, skip the music-starting part
   TNT1 A 0 ACS_ExecuteAlways(5432,0,1)
   TNT1 A 0 A_SetUserVar("user_music",1)

Ah thank you. I'll give this a try later on today and see if it works. If it does then I will definitely add it.

Actually, I messed up a bit. Here's a version with proper jump offsets.

Code: Select all

See:
   TNT1 A 0 A_JumpIf(user_music == 1,4)
   TNT1 A 0 A_CheckSight(3)


A similar minor change would be clearing their SeeSound property and instead playing that sound in the same part that starts the music, so the players don't immediately know about the tele-ambushing leg. That might be too evil though -- imagine a leg dropping on you without any warning :P

Does this mean that if there's a leg in a group of monsters to teleport in, the music won't play until the ambush actually happens? Because if so, I'm not quite sold on this one - having the music play while you fight your way through a map kind of hypes you up and keeps the tension, like a constant reminder that a tougher fight is ahead. Just my opinion, but sometimes I've rather enjoyed that situation. Also, I can imagine how ridiculously unprepared it would leave you when it comes to any teleport ambush, likely making a leg monster even more unfair. I don't know, I can just imagine how infuriating this will be when I continue playing through WADs with teleport traps :P

Maybe there can be an option to turn it off and on? Like the legmusic can be done in the sameway.

Hmm I didn't think about that. Then again I think you can just bind a key to the legmusic commands and it will work in that way. Turn it on and off whenever without having to use the console.

Update: The new LCA version is almost ready. I have just received a picture of the sprites I requested a few days ago. The people who are now working on them are Metal_Spaghetti and TheUndeadSoldier. Still no eta but at least there has been progress made that I can confirm. Be looking out, I think it should be here within less than a month. Not entirely sure so don't quote me on that.

Same here, I can't wait to finally release this! Good news is that the sprites were sent today and I'm cutting out and implementing them now. Bad news is that I'm missing a few sprites. HOPEFULLY the rest of them will be finished and sent today as well. :eek:

I was going to mention one last thing before the update is finally finished, a suggestion if you will. Seeing as you guys liked my request for Two Steps From Hell's "Decimator", but had no monster to assign it to, I had a thought...why not make it for the Legendary Redeemer? It works because the monster is overwhelming and intimidating for sure, almost every time I hear him pop up I know I'm screwed (unless I have the rune). It's better than the existing song choice because that one is extremely short and loops so frequently...and yes, I cannot seem to get an answer for what the bloody thing is called. At least with this one, we have a fully identified collection with a more epic song than before!
...Just a suggestion. :P

Also, I hope you've nerfed this particular bugger a little more already, I firmly believe the Legendary Tormentor is actually easier to defeat and more fair a challenge. I've been playing a few WADs casually while in a withdrawal desire for making more gameplay videos, and it's nice to know that it may finally be time to continue!

I can't say I'll be changing the music but the Redeemer was in fact nerfed. I look forward to you continuing your videos as well though. :biggrin:

No spoilers. Telling you everything that's in 1.5.9 will make people less enthusiastic to play it. You'll already know everything that's in it which will ruin the experience in my opinion. Just wait and see. :wink:

When the Leg Cyberdemon dies, after a few seconds on its corpse Archviles will summon and ressurect the corpse to True Leg Cyberdemon, this has a random chance of happening and its Impossible to tell if a Leg Cyberdemon will become True until it is killed.
