make player jump higher

Recommended Posts

havn't done decorate in awhile. I opened notepad and typed:
edit: all 3 of those things don't work for me. Maybe you have to put the decorate IN the wad or something?

ACTOR jumper : DoomPlayer replaces DoomPlayer
{
	Player.JumpZ 14
	Player.StartItem BFG9000
	Player.MaxHealth 500
}
saved it as decorate.txt. Dropped that plus wad into zdoom 2.5.0 and he still jumps same height.
What do I have to update 'acc' or whatever (I would think such basic jump functions would still work from my old files)

wiki says:
* Player.JumpZ value (fixed point)
The player's jump speed. The player's jump height in normal gravity is (value)²/2.
Default is 8.0 .




EDIT: Hmm, actually maybe its cuz the wad is boom format. I guess it has to be doom in hexen for that stuff to work, I forgot.

Is there an easy normal way to convert boom format to zdoom doom in hexen?

EDIT AGAIN: Doesn't work in zdoom doom in hexen maps either.
Seems I have to make MAPINFO Gamedata crap:
http://zdoom.org/wiki/Creating_new_player_classes
Dunno if mapinfo is just a txt file called mapinfo.txt

EDIT AGAIN:
opened the boom format wad in xwe. entry/new. named it mapinfo.
typed:
GameInfo
{
PlayerClasses = "jumper"
}
like it says to do in above link. Saved, drag/dropped that wad and decorate.txt into zdoom 2.5.0, still nothing happened.

So many red herrings... None of these are the reasons why it didn't work. In fact, all these things should work perfectly. Single-lump files are supported, DECORATE doesn't rely on ACC at all, and all that is independent on map format.

You missed all the "development version only" notices. If you want to use 2.5.0 rather than an SVN build, use the KEYCONF method detailed at the bottom of the page. Basically, just

clearplayerclasses
addplayer jumper
in a keyconf.txt file which you load along your decorate.txt. That should work.

Alternatively, get an SVN build and load your decorate.txt with your mapinfo.txt. It'll work as well.
