Description : This is just a demo, so don’t expect any great architecture and texturing. In fact, the mission is very weird-looking and ugly.

This is a demo of a tool called a hookshot. If you’ve played Zelda : Ocarina of time, you should know what I’m talking about. Basically, it’s an arrow that Garrett shoots at a wooden object, and then he gets pulled towards it. To bring up the arrow, press whichever key you normally press to bring up the broadhead arrows (default : 3). To fire the arrow, simply left-click the mouse button once, no need to press and hold. I wasn’t able to actually show the chain mechanism extended and contracting. So, I just made that part of the "story." I called the hookshot "fiber-roped hookshot" - meaning, the chain/rope is meant to be transparent and invisible. Once you reach your destination, you will fall down a moment later. It should be possible to make the arrow deploy a rope ; I did think of that ; however, I think it’s more exciting when you sometimes fall and have to hookshot in mid-air.

and the crosshair : in your inventory I’ve put icons so that you can match the crosshair to your game resolution. The crosshair is defaulted to a resolution of 1280 x 1024. it’ll take a few seconds for the crosshair to adjust. also, whenever you complete an objective, the crosshair disappears for a few seconds and then reappears.

currently supported game resolutions for the crosshair are :

640 x 480 800 x 600 1024 x 768 1280 x 1024 1600 x 1200

I’m sorry if your game resolution is not supported.

All of the above should make much more sense once you enter the mission.

Mind you, I did do some risky things with dromed,

Known bugs : -occasionally you can get stuck once reaching your destination. - if a solid brush gets in your hookshot path, the game can crash. even your pc might crash (sry). - occasionally, garrett might get cannonballed to the wrong location. -please don’t fire the arrow close to the very bottom of the trees, or else the game (and ur pc) can crash. - the game just randomly crash (and ur pc) - very rare - randomly, garrett may let go in the middle of the path and fall down
