Post subject:  Lord Tim's Awesome New Map (And Associated Problems)

You people are going to like this map. It's very nice, if I do say so myself.

Unfortunately. It hates me.

This is at X=2432.
This is at X=2433.
Is it just me, or is there something wrong with that?
The pipe is a MOSRotating with dimensions 10x63. I used this code to place it into the map:
   PlaceMovableObject = MOSRotating
      CopyOf = PipeB
      Position = Vector
         X = 2433
         Y = 550

Teleports into the wall, and then back out, but not in the place I want. (Should be about 10-15 pixels to the right.)

(Please no lolidunno posts, I'd like to finish this map quickly and release it to you fine people.)

Make sure you didn't make the number beyond the loop.

Like if your map is 2000 pixels long, never place an object with an X of 2001 pixels or over.

For teleporting... make sure it isn't next to the loop. Recent studies on my vacation indicate

That if an object is half-way through the loop and touches another MO, one or both of
those objects will teleport to a specific locatation.

Yes that is true for pinned objects too. Or mabye it is the case of the quantum blink (see numgun's article in general section.)

That's all the help I have.

Nope.. the map is 3000 pixels wide. That shouldn't affect it. PinStrength is at 50000, but I've tried other values.

1000000000 Is the highest value for any variable possible without glitching the .ini loader.

Mabye you could PM it too me and I may be able to fix it by late the next day.

And it was cliftut's article, not numgun's. :???:

I found a workaround. Which works. I guess. Epic map, though. I should be done tomorrow.

P.S. Highest number: 2147483647

P.P.S. Not kidding. Try it.

Technically the most powerful pinstrength is -1.

I tried sometime ago to use a float instead of an integer value
(ie: x= 2532.5).

I forgot the effect.

the effect? I never actually tried smaller than whole numbers... what does it do?
