The Hellgate exit
« on: June 23, 2013, 08:33 »

When the player moves on to the exit in the Hellgate, what all happens game-engine-wise before the teleporter kicks in?  Is it different than the regular teleportation squares?  I had a character die from one of the Bruiser's acid balls after he had moved onto the exit... (and yes, I probably should have popped one of those med-packs in there somewhere, but I was expecting to be whisked away instantly and thought I was safe.)

 Rtd, level 2 Hell Knight 2nd Lieutenant Scout,
 was baptised by a bruiser brother at the Hellgate.
 He survived 3198 turns and scored 9998 points.
 He played for 3 minutes and 57 seconds.
 He didn't like it too rough.

 He killed 22 out of 165 hellspawn. (13%)
 Who gave him the ticket to Hell, anyway?
 He was an Archangel of Pacifism!

 144 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 131 of those were killed.
 1 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
 And 5 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 7 souls destroyed the Mastermind...
 1 sacrificed itself for the good of mankind.
 4 killed the bitch and survived.
 2 showed that it can outsmart Hell itself.

If I'm not wrong, all teleporters have a delay before kicking in, and thus your character died during the "delay" period.

There is the movement delay initially (moving to the cell) which like any other move can cause you to get a face full of acid.  Regular teleporters also have a flat 1000 scount penalty post-move to account for the disorientation (1000 == a standard move w/o any speed bonus).  The hellgate doesn't have that penalty since you're being whisked away to another level.

You moved and died.  The type of cell you moved to did not factor into anything here.
