Barrel points
« on: November 11, 2017, 09:11:35 AM »
I was messing around and stumbled on this little 100 point jump off the oil barrel. I think it's actually the fireball behind the barrel since it only seems to work right when it's being lit. 

You guys probably know about this but thought I'd share just in case you hadn't seen it. :) https://www.twitch.tv/videos/200433729

Wow, I don't think I've seen that before. I dig it.

Yeah, the fireball behaves like a regular fireball enemy in terms of both hit and jump detection from the moment it spawns, even though it starts out following a set arc. So going for it while the arc is still low is a cool idea. :)

You can never get points from jumping the oil can itself on the barrel stage, even if you could get high enough. That particular screen has its own routine that only checks for barrels and fireballs, unlike the other screens that just check for anything that can harm you.

I was wondering if there was any way to get legit points off the oil can. Thanks for explaining the code behind it and saving me a lot of needless deaths by can. ;)
