: : To understand what glue, super glue and glue triggers do in the original
: game check out the Pfhorte Handbook

: The Handbook isn't completely accurate here, according to my testing.
: Monsters on glue won't be activated by noises, unless the noise happens
: inside the same polygon. For grenade explosions and gunfire, that means
: the firing player has to be standing inside the glue polygon -- standing
: outside and firing a grenade into the polygon won't wake the monster
: (unless you actually damage him in the process).

Aye. The version you have up is v1.3. You need Pfhorte v2.0 which is more comprehensive and goes into some length on these issues. Note this is Pfhorte v2.0 and not Pfhorte2 which was for Marathon 2.

Here's a quote:

Secondly, the Glue polygons absorb the "alert" sound that the aliens make. This sound, too, will be sent from alien to alien, and if you are not careful you might end up with all aliens on the level suddenly coming after you. Glue polygons will "muffle" this the alien alert sound, in exactly the same way as SuperGlue polygons "muffle" the Glue Trigger.

This means that you can use Glue polygons to seal off a battle area. Glue polygons placed at the exits of the area will prevent other aliens from noticing what is going on, with one exception: if they can see what's happening, they will come anyway.

If you want a copy let me know. While looking for the Infinity demo I uncovered a ton stuff I didn't know I had. :)

Cheers
