Quantum of Lua 150.svn
timothy on Dec 22nd 2008
A small collection of Lua experiments you probably shouldn't host.
Notes for version 150.svn:
2 small bug fixes.
Spawn_Kamping.lua - Players respawn with 3x health and a rocket launcher. Kill them within 10 seconds to score bonus points. Each second after they spawn players lose 10% of their extra health and are worth one less point. Who should you target? You'll know by the color of their shirts.
Homing_Rockets.lua - Now it's even easier to home in on your enimies. Just aim in their general direction and wait for the sound that tells you it's time to fire. But be careful. It's hard to maintain a lock at a large distance and if you hear the juggernaut then find something to hide behind.
Fly-by-wire rockets can now be disabled by individuals.
Quantum Loched King of the Hill displays carnage report as time.

Spawn Whiners 1.0
treellama on Dec 4th 2008
Use these scripts when people whine about spawn kills.
Spawn_Blinking.lua: players blink for 10 seconds after spawning, or until they get a weapon, so you know who (not) to kill
Spawn_Invincible.lua: players are invincible for 10 seconds after spawning, or until they get a weapon
Spawn_With_AR.lua: everyone spawns with an AR and some ammo

Finally, the new gametype craze taking the metaserver by storm is released!
MUNITIONS DISPOSAL, the latest gametype out of Ray Laboratories, is as simple as it is fun: fire weapons to gain points. Gives a new meaning to "Never Stop Firing"!
Notes for version 1.1:
Ray Laboratories does it again with this must-have update to the original smash hit!

The number one comment I hear when hosting the Co-Op 2.0 Lua script is, "I really miss the old script."
Now, with the Co-Op 2.0 - 1.0 Edition script, those players will feel right at home.
This modified script spawns players with full health. By default, players will be "slaved" to the host's beacon, simplifying the teleport system for new players. The HUD elements from the original script also return, showing deaths, kills, and enemies remaining. While in the map view, helpful text explains how to set beacons, change targets, and initiate a teleport. Also, this script crashes more often.

Jump Script 1.2
Megabyte on Jul 11th 2008
This script uses the microphone button to jump. It will only allow you to jump while on the ground so you can't go flying across the map.
Be sure to this host with microphones off.
Version 1.1: Now makes a grunt sound when you jump and has cleaner beginning text (uses overlay instead of print).
Version 1.2: Now the microphone wont interfere with the sound. This should be the final version.

Territory is a new game type for team play. Red and Blue teams fight for control of a level, with scores based on floor area. Fun and simple.
(See the Readme for greater detail.)

I don't know if anybody still wants to use Cranberry but I noticed it no longer seems to be available on-line. This is the application v3.0.b5 which would handle Lua & MML; the package includes various scripts people had left on Mike Benonis's site.

Marathon: Pathways into Darkness Version 0.5 now available!
I am sorry it took so long to get this beta out to the public. The reason was that the MPiD Images file was giving a lot of trouble and so I have decided to replace it with a regular Infinity Images file.
If you download the beta I would love to hear your opinions and/or suggestions. I will not appreciate ugly rants but any sort of constructive criticism is VERY welcome. Please post your thoughts here or email me at: nhoad at sunbeach.net
Now, there are several problems in this beta that I am already aware of. If you have a suggestion for how to best fix them I would be happy to hear it:
Most blue in the game is transparent: This is a problem caused because of the blues used in PiD. DeepThought is indirectly helping me fix this problem. Monsters get stuck in walls or don't attack immediately: This is a mapping problem which I intend to fix as I polish the levels. Any mapping tips are welcome! There is no resting: Bobwithkeycard is helping me implement resting, for the moment there are only a set number of health potions per level. Some items are undersize or oversized Levels seem really short. This is simply a fact of PiD levels, if you move at any sort of decent speed the levels become much shorter PLAY ON NORMAL DIFFICULTY! PiD was not designed for multiple difficulty levels and neither is MPiD! Monsters on Total Carnage WILL eat you alive! You cannot go back between levels: A1 doesn't like this feature and it would be incredibly hard to implement (and not really worth it in the end). So there will be no backtracking.
Those are the big problems and I hope to fix them all. I REALLY want to hear your recommendations, opinions or even encouragement! If there are any problems in the beta (such you cannot travel between level 3 and 4) let me know and I will upload a corrected map file for the beta.
What to expect in future versions:
A completely new Images file. New high-res textures, weapons and sprites by DeepThought New LUA by bobwithkeycard (LUA which will allow resting, talking to the dead PiD style, nuclear bombs and more) Chapter screens by Phobos-Romulus All of the original PiD levels
Thank you all very much for your support and I hope you enjoy this beta until the full version of MPiD is released! Note: There is no release date so don't bother asking.
Many of the MPiD team members have come and gone over the years and I believe that myself and Patrick White are the only remaining active members of the team listed below.

PS: The MPiD Team is in no way responsible for any damage caused to your computer by this beta.
PPS: I have a serious issue with crediting people, I MUST do it. If you notice anything in this beta you believe you were not credited for let me know immediately please!
