[Mod] Testchamber 501-x - An endless Survival mode
This is a survival mod for teleglitch I was tinkering together in the last week.
NOTE that the mod can kill your monster stats!
An intention of this mod is to support Teleglitch
and the Teleglitch modding community.

I think the game is a fantastic piece and so hope to
ignite some other devs to mod it too.

patch 9.3 version:

Features
==========
- You are a Blue Walker
- Some story pieces embedded into the teleglitch universe
- Dropable Guntowers with autoaiming
- Star Nailgun
- Delta Nailgun
- Anomalygun
- Procedurally created Testphases: the wider you get, the harder it will be.
Theoretically you could play forever. Try

INSTALL
===========
- Copy the 'testchamber_501x' directory into the root of your teleglitch directory.

=> for the version 9.3 of teleglitch put following at the bottom of your lua/menu.lua
local testchamberbutton =mainmenu:AddButton(122,126,"Testcase 501-x","",function()
mod_setup = false
pl = nil
level.StartFrom("testchamber_501x",0)
menu.SetState("game",true)
end)
testchamberbutton:SetNext("up",exitbutton)
testchamberbutton:SetNext("down",newgamebutton)
testchamberbutton:SetNext("left",newgamebutton)
newgamebutton:SetNext("right",testchamberbutton)
exitbutton:SetNext("down",testchamberbutton)

=> for versions below 9.3 patch put following at the bottom of your lua/init.lua
menu.AddItem(menu.GetRoot(),"Testcase 501-x", function()
mod_setup = false

level.StartFrom("testchamber_501x",0)

Oops, copy this into the lua/init.lua file:

menu.AddItem(menu.GetRoot(),"Testcase 501-x", function()
mod_setup = false
pl = nil
level.StartFrom("testchamber_501x",0)
menu.SetState("game")
end
)

This is a really great mod, my favourite so far. There's lots of great ideas there, and you have delved much deeper into the code than other modders have. Wouldn't have thought I would see anybody else capable of pulling off an automatic turret here!

This makes me want to continue my own mod, but it still runs on version 8.8 and the two new patches seem to be too broken for porting to be worth it.

Hey Commander Keen,
thanks for your feedback. It's nice to hear that someone enjoys it.

What is your mod about? It would be interesting to have a look at it.
Maybe I can help you to fix it for version 9.0, atm I know the lua 'api' of teleglitch
quite well. Just pm me and we can work on it.

Cheers
B.K.

[MOD UPDATE]

I just updated the mod to version 0.4. The main changes are:
- Better introduction to the weapons
- Better enemy shuffling
- More Boss enemies
- General finetuning & balancing

Enjoy
B.K.

PS:
My personal highscore is testphase 27. Challenge: Beat the developer ;)

I have been playing it for the past week and still have a lot of fun. The frantic arena combat with unlimited rockets is a nice change from the survival experience of Teleglitch. So far I got to phase 13 before being murdered by a blue walker/squid/laser scientist combo, but it's good to know someone else got farther. :)

As for my mod, it is the Chaos Theory mod that I released some time ago. The last public release is rather messy, but I have cleaned that up, so porting to the latest version is a matter of including a line in lua.init and checking for bugs. I also have a prototype level generator (truly random, not module based like in the vanilla game), but it's not in release-able state yet.

Patched the mod to work with teleglitch 9.3:

The Installation is slightly different, see on top or in the readme-file
