31NOTES
32-----
33
34level1: demo stuff
35        use god mode.
36        you will first run through a series of sensors.
37        these sensors behave differently. i place a pointer
38        to where these sensors are. or you could just go to
39        edit mode.
40       
41        you will then receive weapons. (if you don't have the
42        weapon, you can't fire even if you take ammo!)
43        i finally managed to make the last weapon work!!!:))))))
44        it will release a burst of energy.
45        it's a big round orb of purple coloured energy
46        (i got the gfx from doom - the bfg bullet. i just change the hue).
47        The Death Ray (what we will call that bullet) will eat through
48        everything until it hits the wall. The bullet has a lifetime of
49        100 state_time (i don't know how long that is. maybe 10 secs).
50        It will destroy most objects in the nearby areas and will release
51        a beam of light to an enemy and kill it (got idea from doom/quake2).
52
53        you will then encounter a large amount of blocks. stand back
54        and release one Death Ray (this is to show you what i mean
55        in the previous paragraph). you will see the death ray hit the block,
56        destroy it, and continues it's path. it doesn't dies out when it hits
57        the enemy :) one single blast could kill as many as 50+ ants provided
58        they are all bunched up together.
59
60        next is the walk rob. it can only be hurt when it is walking. so you
61        have to make it chase you and fire. once it dies, it will detach its head.
62        it moves like a flyer.
63
64        after that, you will see 3 switches beside someone who looks like you.
65        you can change the color by changing the aitype (0-9; note that 6,8,9 dosen't
66        work).
67        you may encounter some other objects that could change its color by changing
68        the aitype.
69
70level2: super mario bros
71        this is meant to be a secret level in Twisted Minds!
72       
73        for first few tries, don't use god mode.
74
75        it's no fun when you use those fancy weapons. if mario can get through,
76        a big tough guy like you should have no problem. try to use the 1st weapon.
77
78        tileset + characters from super mario bros.
79        some pipes can be entered by pressing down.
80        if you fall into any pits, you should die instantly.
81        if you have god mode on just hit 'j' to jump to cursor position.
82
83        just like any mario, there is a warp zone. just know how to get to it.
84
85level3: raider demo
86        this is a quickly done level to show one of the vehicles.
87        it demonstrates some properties and fun stuff that the normal
88        player probably could not do.
89        once you reach the end, you will automatically go to next level.
90
91level4: redant demo
92        another quickly done level.
93        you don't need god mode to be on (trust me)
94        in the beginning of the level, do not turn on the switch.
95        move towards the crack and 50 ants will come out.
96        you can kill them all by jumping. if you got the fly power,
97        just right click and move from left to right, touching the ants.
98
99        if its getting late, go to a corner, and blast a death ray. see
100        all 50 ants die.
101
102        turn on the switch to end game.
103
104
105OBJECTS
106-------
107
108i'm not listing down all the new objects i made;
109just some of the ones i think you should know.
110
111obj_cheat:      this object will automatically position itself to
112                the player's x y cords. you can perform cheats
113                by holding the right mouse button and type:
114                        vitalize        -add health
115                        arms            -all weapons
116                        reload          -full ammo
117                        steroids        -power fast
118                        liftoff         -power fly
119                        mirage          -power sneaky
120                        elixir          -power health
121                        visor           -power flare (not implemented yet)
122                        outcome         -completes the whole game
123
124                if you press any direction button, you will have to
125                retype the whole thing again
126                status: REMOVED
127
128obj_force:      use together with obj_holder.
129                hold an object together with obj_force.
130                you can make blocks that don't move, move.
131                see level 1 for example.
132
133sensor_gravity: if you stand in the sensor, you will be affected
134                by the gravity stated in its ai. you can make
135                the player heavier or lighter.
136
137sensor_music:   the music will change to the one stated in the ai.
138
139sensor_health:  if you stand in the sensor, your life will decrease/increase
140                according to its ai. use negative number to add health.
141
142sensor_level:   will change the level if you are within sensor's range.
143                in the ai, you will be asked for level and sector.
144                level is the first 2 digits of the filename and sector
145                is the last 2 digit of the file name. so if level = 2
146                and sector = 5, it will load "L02s05.lvl"
147
148sensor_teleport:behaves just like tele2 only that it will work when within
149                range. you can state whether pressing the action key is required
150                or not.
151                NOTE: do not link sensor_teleport to another sensor_teleport if
152                both of them do not need action key to activate!!! If the player
153                is in range, he will switch back and fourth continously.

217NEW UPDATES
218-----------
219
220You can now press right shift at any time to save game!
221
222In the previous update, you will need to find the gun before you can shoot,
223even if you already have the ammo. This is okay for twisted minds but there
224are people who may want to use the death ray code to work on their own or the
225Abuse's original levels. If the original level is loaded into twisted minds,
226the player will have difficulty as he cannot get weapons as ammo is nothing
227without it. I made some changes and it should work now. If you play twisted
228minds, you will still need the gun but if you load twisted minds with the -f
229command to load external levels, you wont need the gun to shoot anymore. Also
230note that in the original Abuse, there are no death ray ammo so if you want
231to use it, you have to cheat a little. Under the chat window, type "/give
232deathray" <enter> followed by "/give bfgcells" <enter>. There you have it!
