I need some help with Monster Bash

Post by reble » Sun Apr 29, 2018 5:55

There is 1 spot in a level (I don't know what level it is) in MB2. Please look at this post https://www.keenmodding.org/viewtopic.p ... 377#p22377 There is no way to get at the 3 white beakers and the red heart without editing the level. I have some experience at editing MS DOS games of this type. I also have Abiathar V2.8 that I used on Bio Menace that worked very well after Fleexy gave me a step by step instructions. I also have edited the original Duke Nukem, Duke Nukem II and Duke Nukem 3D. But I have never used Camoto before.

From what I see in my level viewer for Monster Bash, you should be able to reach the area by dropping down between the two big blue spikes and then crawling over to the goodies (that's a fake wall). If you do it right, you should be able to get in there without losing any health. You should also be able to just jump up where the heart is to get out of that area.

BTW: This is level file "lev9" if you still want to try modding it with Camoto.

Thanks for the info K1n9_Duk3. I didn't know about the fake wall. Just for the learning experience how do I decompress the levels using Camoto? I have never used Camoto. I generally know how level editors work but each level editor has it's own quirks. Each time I tackle a project like this. It expands my knowledge. Book learning I am bad at. Step by step hands on, getting my hands dirty, learning I do best at.

I haven't actually used Camoto to mod anything, so I can't help you any further, sorry.

If I recall correctly, the way to access this is to use blocks that fall down earlier in the level and push (shoot?) them to the right, 'mopping up' the stalagmites. You stop before the gap before the last one, and then crawl to the right of the block and under the last one and in.

Now, in E2L8 I'm fairly sure you can't get the beakers near the ceiling in the far right!
Picture coming, after I get my FTP accessible again :P
