RE: What is the secret formula for scaring someone [No cheap scares!]

A nice idea could be that monster patrols around without the starting "roar" sound. (Easy to do it)
But without music, and the music will start if the player is nearby the forever patrolling monster (or it will go away if you do a certain thing)... Like in Penumbra Overture with the dogs. Apjjm should create a similar script Smile

In my current custom story I'm making very frequent use of grunts that don't alert when they appear. Makes it very handy to have them sneak up on the player Smile

I must ask, how do you script it?

You don't script it, its a property of the enemy. Go into the "Model Editor" and open up the enemy you want. In the menu, go to > Settings > User defined Variables. Inside are the properties for the enemy. Scattered around are things like sounds or music to be played on activation and such. Just delete them and save the monster out.

Make sure you make a new copy of the enemy before doing this.

I know the secret formula.
(scripting knowledge)+(mapping)+(environment)*(lighting)= amazing scares.

RE: What is the secret formula for scaring someone [No cheap scares!]

Actually I'm pretty sure it's

((scripting + mapping) * environment) ^ (lighting+sound)

RE: What is the secret formula for scaring someone [No cheap scares!]

I believe this is the formula:

[Image: 6403f94bed6502d6b02e59d2add1dc0d.png]
With [Image: 4297971aea2d28d336bcfba8a42fe4bc.png]=6.022 141 79(30)×1023 mol−1

+1 To the first one who knows what formula this is actually for.

Or you may have to run checks like so:

if(ScaredByGhosts) SpawnGhosts(2, "Player", 0, 10, 0);
if(ScaredByBees) SpawnHornets(753, "Player", RandInt(1,10), 0, 0);
if(ScaredOfNothing) DevelopFear(RandFear());
etc,

Insanity. Static.

I believe your equation isn't so much for scaring, but more so for activity of a quantity radioactive material where one nucleus decays per second. Or something of that nature. (Am I right? Tongue)

I rate it 3 memes.

Nucleus are scary. Scary indeed.

Thank you Rapture for your answer.
