why would an SCP error be considered as news? :wtf:

It's a feature.  Haven't you read the thread?

Not to mention that since things like the Horribly Wrong Idea pic make the news, therefore anything can. :nervous:

It's not an error. I first discovered what the SEXP could do due to a bug but the fact is that now the bug has been fixed I should still be able to do the same thing with it via proper SEXPing.

Besides bug or not the reason why people were suggesting the highlight is cause it allowed for some nice pictures :)

Definitely :nod: For example, the trichording speed boost was originally a bug in the original Descent installment, but it became an essential element of gameplay and was included deliberately in the other two games.  There are a lot of other cases where bugs in games have become legitimatized by frequent use.

Then there's wavedashing in SSBM. Its discovery transformed the way the game can be played. And countless other examples like you said.

And that edited Bearbaiting mission is a blast! Sure, there's so much on screen that half the time your lasers don't even show up and having bombs actually hit anything is out of the question, but who cares? The eye candy rules.

But one thing I am wondering: is the collision detection going to be (or even capable of being) revised to allow missions of this sort?

Funny thing is that I tried out the should-work (i.e bug free) version today and the Shivans got their arse's kicked but the Taurets. Maybe the collision errors were in their favour but I had been expecting it to go the other way :)

@ Karajorma and his .gif: is that the sort of framerate you got, or is that just as fast as you could take good screenies?
Wh00t!? Vinyl? Is it like an I-pod 2 or something?

It was the taking screenshots that caused the slowdowns. The game is perfectly playable normally :)

Hey Kara, make another big pile of Aeoluses and put them in front of a Sath, and have the Sath jump out.
