Talk:Disc of Repulsion


Does it change seeker ownership?[edit]

I always thought it did, but dark bishop's shots keep the player as their target after being deflected with one. -- ETTiNGRiNDER 12:01, 25 January 2014 (UTC)

Appears that Raven forgot to code a case for it. In p_user.c at line 1136, seeker missiles are accounted for with a switch on mo->type which has cases for MT_SORCBALL 1 through 3, and MT_MSTAFF_FX2. Then below there is an additional special case for MT_HOLY_FX. Any other seekers in the game have been neglected, and probably not intentionally - the code is rife with these inconsistencies due to rushed development or simple lack of planning. --Quasar 16:10, 25 January 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. What's the deal with MT_SORCBALL*, though? Aren't those the heresiarch's halo cubes? Do they seek when they're bouncing around after he dies? -- ETTiNGRiNDER 02:32, 26 January 2014 (UTC)
