Portal Gun

...and downloaded it without giving it much thought.

I had one of the previous versions of the Portal Gun, which is a weapon mutator from the game Portals which I've never played. The concept is simple enough, for anyone that's ever read a Doctor Strange comic in the early 1970's or various other comicbook references I could supply.

The one I already had (PortalGunFTW) basically did this:

The one on the left is the 'in' the one on the right is the 'out'. Very fun gun, only lethal in creative telefrags or dropping a portal in somebody else's path and popping the exit way up high in the sky.

That and the portals look really cool!

I don't know what specifically gopostal was referring to in regards to server crashes...other than that. He didn't mention the specifics but ultimately that doesn't much matter. His version looks like this:

Not so cool looking but it works about the same.

Anyway, he wrote it as a .u file without an accompanying .int file, setting it up just for summons as he says in the included ReadMe. I've never written an .int for a .u before but if it's as easy as this was then I may have to do it more often.

Personally, I still prefer the one I had before but then I've never tried it on a server...though I have played with it on somebody or other's MonsterHunt server without any notable issues.

Enjoy!

I've used the first one in MH, and seen it on MH servers, every so often. I've never seen it crash the game...

...although, I largely only use it in Deathmatch regardless.

The reason the first one can crash it is that it was not made for monsters to use it,witch they do=crash
