In Response To: Re: Beta test: BOB-B-Q (Dr. John Sumner)

: The minimum ledge delta for the Major Hunter in the original Marathon is
: listed as -31. The corresponding value in M2 is -1024 which I assume is
: one world unit. Since the ledge is exactly that height, I suppose that is
: why it could jump out. But what would -31 mean for M1? That doesn't sound
: very large. Do the Hunters in M1 not jump off ledges often? (or ever?)

: In the original Marathon, there is a glue poly at the edge of the opening on
: the walkway side. On the floor side, there is a super glue poly at the
: edge of the opening.

If you watch Bobjam's video of this level (original game) you will see that the Hunter will jump down from the lower of the two ledges but not from the higher one (see 5:30 mins).

In the end (around 23 mins) he kills it by shorting it from down below.

This is also how I remember it. If you Vid this level you want these Hunters to come down because they are easier to kill in the open than in the corridors. But the Hunter in the higher corridor will not jump down. Certainly not while you are down in the room.

Just for the record I played the beta 2 and I'm getting the exact same behaviour as Bobjam did. The Hunter on the lower ledge jumps down but the higher one does not. I was able to hit the higher Hunter with magnum shots every time he came to the opening but he still wouldn't come down.
