SRB2 Riders/Character WAD

From SRB2 Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Character WADs for SRB2 Riders are set up differently than regular character WADs. The frames are organized differently, with additional frames added, and there are several new options in the S_SKIN lump.

Contents

S_SKIN

  • faceicon - The lump name of the automap icon used for the character. The automap icon is the graphic used to show where the character is on an automap, provided that there is an automap set for the map. As with face and facename, while the lump name value is not case-sensitive, one should type the lump name in all capitals for elegance, to match exactly with the name of the lump. XWE automatically gives this offsets, but this lump should not have any.
  • ability - Same as with regular SRB2, except with 2 extra abilities:
    • 8 - Cream's Fly/Swim, modified so her flying frames use 8 frames instead of 4 - the running frames followed by the first 4 special ability frames; it also turns on the console command TOGGLECHEESE so Cheese is always by her side
    • 9 - Eggman's Fly ability - the character flies instead of jumping; it also enables the character to spindash in mid-air
  • exgear - Sets the Extreme Gear type of the character for Sonic Riders mode:
    • 0 - Speed Type - Can ride rails
    • 1 - Fly Type - Can fly through hoops
    • 2 - Power Type - Can bust through bustable blocks
  • runframe - Sets which frames the character uses for running in normal Race mode:
    • 0 - Uses the default running frames
    • 1 - Uses the running frames plus all 6 special ability frames (used by Shadow)
    • 2 - Uses therunning frames plus the first 4 special ability frames (used by Cream)
  • thokcolor - Determines when prefthokcolor is used for the character's thok item:
    • 0 - The thok item is always the same as the character's current skin color; prefthokcolor is never used
    • 1 - The thok item uses prefthokcolor only when the character is using their prefcolor (used by Shadow)
    • 2 - The thok item always uses prefthokcolor (used by Eggman)
  • prefthokcolor - Works similar to prefcolor (keeping in mind that the colors have been moved around), except it sets the thok item's color instead.
