TITLEMAP ACS help please

Post by Herculine » Thu Oct 18, 2012 12:19

I want to make a TITLEMAP that plays sort of like a demo and I know I will need ACS scripts to do so, but the often-helpful ZDoom wiki shows absolutely no examples of how to do so thus I am totally lost and now have myself a nice boring TITLEMAP that does absolutely nothing. How could I at least make the player move around or maybe fire a few shots at a monster?

You'll want to use a scripted marine instead of trying to control the player on a titlemap.

Thank you. That info led me to the ZDoom wiki page on scripted marines. Now I assume I'll have to use his TID to actually add him to the map with an editor. I'll give that a try.

Here is a tutorial on how to create cutscenes, which is essentially how you'd create your TITLEMAP.
