Random Monitor

From SRB2 Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Thing type 412, Random Monitor, is a monitor that randomly selects and activates a monitor action upon its destruction, such as awarding ten rings or harming the player. This monitor is intended for use in Race mode and should not be placed in Match and Capture the Flag maps. In these cases, Strong Random Monitor and Weak Random Monitor flags should be used instead.

This monitor does not respawn randomly, and ignores the flags used for Strong Random Monitors and Weak Random Monitors.

When a Random Monitor is destroyed, it will choose one of the following monitors to act like from the list below (the console variables controlling their chances are also listed):
