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

: 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.

To understand what glue, super glue and glue triggers do in the original game check out the Pfhorte Handbook 1.3 (kindly preserved for future generations by Hopper).

http://docmaker.whpress.com/files/pfhorte-handbook-1-3/page5.html

Those two Hunters you refer to are standing on glue polys but behind a super glue poly. When you stand on the glue trigger at the entrance to the room, the Pfhor Fighters will activate but not the Hunters. The Hunters will only activate when they get a line of sight on you.

This particular placement provides for the following typical fight scenario. You approach the room entrance, the Pfhor Fighters activate, they come running for you, you back up down the corridor firing as you go, once the Fighters are all dead you head back to the room, it looks all clear, you step in, walk around, BLAM, Hunters open fire from above.

Actually they are most likely to howl first, putting the fear of God into you.

Nice one Jason. :)

Cheers
Hamish
