In Response To: Re: Beta test: BOB-B-Q (Godot)

: Interesting. I've have never seen the Hunter in the original game jump down
: from the higher corridor. Only the lower one. I always assumed that the
: higher one was to high for the Hunter to jump and he wanders off down the
: corridor to look for another way to get to you.

: If you are seeing this behaviour in the beta I am wondering if there is
: something different about the heights monsters can jump down from between
: the beta and the original game?

I my movie, he does finally jump down at around 29:12. I did, however, have to chase after him and coax him to follow me with my little pistol. If I was to redo this movie, now that I have refined my narrow corridor ninja punching action, I would probably not bother coaxing him out and just punch the daylights out of him in the corridor. :)

Regarding seeing this behavior in the original Marathon, I can't say that I remember one way or the other. I never vidded BOB-B-Q back in the day, consequently when I did run across him, I would just blast the goo out of him with grenades from my AR while he warbled at me from his doorway.

Regarding a difference in jump height restrictions, anything is possible, but so far the beta seems to have an accurate copy of the original Marathon's physics model. Also, I don't think his reluctance to jump down is due to a height restriction, but due to the level geometry. Perhaps there is a monster impassable poly laid at the door's threshold, or more likely, it is the width of the opening combined with the narrowness of the threshold poly. Also, maybe, the 5D nature of the corridor the doorway opens from is some contributing factor. You might have to breakout Pfhorte again. :)
