Re: The Portal Wrench!
try this modification of the script:
http://gtr.quakedev.com/weapon_wrench.script

aligns on walls and its possible to add portals far away.
sadly, portals dont work too close to walls, so a boxtrace was neccessary.
trace doesnt go through portals.
edit: point trace and exact distance to wall added.

Re: The Portal Wrench!
Dudes, is it possible to get a movie on Youtube, for instance, with this new version, please ?

(I haven't tried the full version of Prey yet, 'cause my computer is dead , so it would be cool to see at least what it does )

Re: The Portal Wrench!
code updated to work better with ceilings.. ceilings are kinda buggy, as you need much space over the portal so you can spawn in.

@movie: sorry, no time.. maybe someone else here can do it.

Re: The Portal Wrench!
Good stuff guys.

I've basically been waiting to get the full version of the game before going really far with my particular version of the mod. I have the full version now, and made it so you only have to select "Portal Wrench" in the Mods menu to run it. I think someone else mentioned this previously in the thread.

I'll upload it after I get some sleep.

And while I'm here, do arrays exist in Doom3 engine scripting, like C's array[index]? If so, how do you declare them in a script? I want to make more changes to my version of the mod, but need arrays to do it.

No real changes from the original version in the topic, except it's more friendly towards the full version. All you need to do is extract it to your Prey folder. NOT your base folder, but your Prey folder, so it looks like "Prey\Portal Wrench\" after it's extracted.

Then you can just run Prey normally and select "Portal Wrench" from the Mods menu.

Thumbs up Re: The Portal Wrench! [hopes for multiplayer]
10000 views... i'm not the only one. we should get this ported for multiplayer. as of now, it's a server-side mod that only works for the server, basically. however, a created portal still works for the clients (they just don't have the ability to create them themselves, or see which ones are already open). any chance this could be changed? i honestly believe it could step this game up to be one of the best mutliplayer fps's on the market. people are trying to think of brilliant new mod ideas to raise the potential prey... but the portal wrench is nearly complete, and there is nothing else like it. any objections?

it's still fun in multiplayer the way it is, but it'd be nice if the clients could at least see the portals...

or, for a slight change in game-play, the portal wrench could be a unique drop in the game that allows only the carrier to create the portals, and no one else. then, upon dying, the player holding the wrench would drop it, and the fragger could claim it as his/her own. using this style of play, the other players would have no real need to "see" the existing portal(s). it'd add more of an edge to carrying the tool. "where'd he go?" "i'm behind you!"

just some ideas... i'd even be willing to do some of the work, if i understood more on how the portal wrench mod was created.

Re: The Portal Wrench!
Hi guys,

I'm new to these forums but I have been following this thread with great interest and recently started modifying the portal wrench myself. What I want to achieve is multiple fire modes:
- Fire mode 1-5 is making linking portals
- Fire mode 6-10 is making mirroring portals
- Fire mode 11 is the normal fire (as you need this in the first wel SP levels)
- Fire mode 12 is a 'delete all portals' function
I also want to add a HUD element which shows the currently selected fire mode, but so far I have been unable to do so. I'm glad to say though that the fire mode system itself works fine. Unfortunately in the progress I apparently borked the linking portal function. I don't know how I did it, and attempts to get it working again have been futile so far.

Maybe one of you can check my script out and tell me what I have done wrong. If you're too lazy to check in-game, using the linking portal mode will create two mirroring (!?) portals on the same place. According to the function that should be impossible, but it happens anyway

Cheers,

Aistina

Re: The Portal Wrench!
Whoa, I fixed it. Of course it turns out that I was simply
doing something very stupid. In the function that created
the linking portals I had no wait command so when you
clicked once the function would simply be executed twice,
resulting in two portals at the same place. So I fixed a few
other minor things, and here it is for all of you to enjoy

Please let me know what you think.

Cheers,

Aistina

EDIT: i think its nice but do have some criticism:

1. could you make it some more user friendly, because my finger hurts from cycling through the different modes.

2. could you plz make it so that i can select the mod from ingame instead of having a different startup.

for the rest, i like this alot!

Re: The Portal Wrench!
http://rapidshare.de/files/30629284/arr.avi.html lol, took 6 portals to do that. I'll work on the script now, so I can add some "portal-ish cursor" or whatever, will report if I can do something.

http://rapidshare.de/files/30643871/wrenchv0.24b.zip Here is a small temporary feature, I'll make it so that it decreases its size when you walk away from the target, and change color according to portal number, and disable it when both of the portals are active, so it can look more "realistic". (Then instead of the debugcircle you could also use a texture or sumshin, never tried it yet. You can see this script as a "template" >_>)

Edit2: http://rapidshare.de/files/30687484/wrenchv0.32b.zip Ok so the circle goes blue when you are going to place the first portal, red when you want to place the second, and disappears when both portals are open. It also changes size according to the distance and stuff, but the size is not as accurate. Rawr.

//All credits go to everyone who worked on this mod, I love the wrench.

Hi,

the reason it doesn't work in the mod menu (ingame in prey) is because you probably had a download link that lead to an (in)complete version of the portal wrench. You must know there are more then 1 mods that are called the portal wrench but basicly do the same.

This is the one that I use and basicly made by the guy that was the first with this mod. this one does work in your mod menu.

Portal wrench: http://prey.filefront.com/file/The_Portal_Wrench;67203


If you want another version to work, im sure you can find tutorials somewhere on how to run.

Hope this helps

-Lauwie0

Re: The Portal Wrench!
Heh, I was bored, so I worked on the script a bit more :P
Left button creates first portal, right button creates second portal...
Realtime preview-feature added (or whatever you call it :P)
At the first time, if there aren't any portals made by you, the created portal will mirror itself.
Also it's a bit... faster :P

Video of it in action

Just extract the weapon_wrench.script into your Program Files/Prey/base/script/ directory.
All credits go to anyone who worked on this script... (Original wrench makers as well as Snoopjedi, deltaphc, TTK-Bandit, Aistina, and others)

Nomorepasting link
Spreadit link
Filefactory link
Rapidshare link

----------

EDIT: Quick bugfix, thanks to niklz for reporting, and TTK-Bandit again, as I looked at his script for the ceiling fix!

----------

EDIT2:
Ok.. made a few more changes, now left-click makes a blue portal, right-click makes a red...
Nomorepasting link, save the paste as weapon_wrench.script in your prey/base/script directory.

Next: ability to make a blue portal through a red, and a red through a blue. Like in Narbacular Drop.

Has anyone thought of making some maps based on this mod? Something similar to Narbacular Drop, Portal or the Portal mod for Gmod9 on HL2?

I might look into it and try to develop a basic level to test people with it.

Extract it to the install of the Portal Wrench you already had...if you didn't already have it, go find the latest version and download it.

Unrar the file into your Prey/base/ folder
So autoexec.cfg will be in your base/ folder and maps and script folders will be in your base folder as well.

Finally I got the mod working but I have one minor problem.

Everytime I try to restart your map after dying it says

Error: maps\testing.map Line 4: map redeclared (something like that)


It also has a bunch of warning messages in the console when I start the game and it says something about a map failing to load.

Re: The Portal Wrench!
Hunter1942: Yeah there seems to be a few problems with that testing map.

Well now I'm working on a new map which will be as close to Portal as possible, but it will also include some original features like wallwalking or gravity flipping, spirit walking or... well the others should be surprises.

Here's a preview (it will take a few minutes to get approved by YouTube):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZcwXlwewzus

Note: All of the portals are controlled by the map, until you get to the mouse icon.

Until you get to the point where you can see the mouse icon you cannot create or control any portals.

After the mouse icon I press mouse1 to create the blue portal which will allow me to pass through to get to the red portal which was already placed by the map.

Man, I love Prey.

Edit: Oh, also the new version of the wrench disables falling damage.
