MasterOmok | Loading a Teleporter

i first figured it out by accident, i was trying to get it ontop of the teleporter and i straffed into it by accident. then i mastered how to do it and put all four of them in it.

This trick is similar to the Sidewinder Sneak trick, except that it seems that the collision detection system of the Ghost requires that ALL of the Ghost be blocked by a solid surface...

Click the frame above to see the movie. Or, option-click (right-click on a PC) on this link to download it directly to your hard drive.

Also available as a .WMV file (1.4 mb).

On August 8, 2002, after MasterOmok documented this trick but well before we made it public (well before :( ), Darkman sent us this note:

When I was playing myself with 2 players spilt screen for make my only stunts. I was used a ghost and I put the tank by the base. I ran to the tank with my ghost and jump and flipped or rolling whatever. something happened... I was crashed in the teleporter and guess what, my ghost got stuck in the teleporter. there is the pic that I proved it. and I know this pic is small and I got a lame camera.

The picture he sent, while not nearly of the quality of MasterOmok's movie, showed clearly that he'd discovered the same glitch.

The music for this movie is "Hampton the Hampster - The Official Hamster Dance Song" - MasterOmok used the techno remix. You can download just the music from his site in mp3 format (844K).

Filler up!

Umm... I think that wall's not solid enough...
