: No, I am just going on memory of playing this level years ago. Every time I
: played and had a fighter go berserk, it would never cross over into the
: impassable poly. It would follow me up to the boundary, but then always
: turn back. Not a big deal. Just another (seemingly) minor monster
: behavioral difference between the beta and from what I remember about the
: original game.

I wasn't quite clear what polygon you were referring to but I now see it's the one directly in front of The Three Crushers. I presume this was turned to Monster Impassable to prevent the Fighters following you to their inevitable death.

After playing the original game on TC, I can say that that a Fighter whether berserked or not will follow you onto this Monster Impassable polygon. Whether they follow you or not is a bit hit or miss. Sometimes they just won't follow you other times they will. I could not pin down what caused the different actions. Door closed, door open, door closing, door opening, it just didn't seem to matter. Based on repeated playing they tend NOT to follow more than they will follow you. So you are probably remembering the more common outcome of the two possible outcomes.

When playing beta 2 I am getting pretty much the same behaviour as the original game.

Chalk this one up to Marathon randomness. Marathon isn't scripted folks... it's real life. ;)

Cheers
Hamish
