Dev build/Linux: rappel down from edged roof unreliable outcome

Post by pango » Sun Mar 03, 2019 10:56 pm

With Advanced climbing on, once you climbed on top of a roof with edges (as described before: climb the wall, hang below edge, give a tap backward to climb on top of the roof), you can try to rappel down. However you can get different results depending on when you stop pressing backward key (and luck):
- good outcome: you can find yourself just below the edge, usually hanging below it;
- you can get stuck inside the roof. It happens rather reliably if you keep the backward key pressed, but it may also happen if you relax the key almost immediately after Rappel mode message appears;
- "try again" outcome: you start to rappel down, then climb up on top of the roof again;
- if you relax the key at the right time, when you're about the same height as roof border, there's some probability that you'll start floating upward "forever". It looks like a variant of previous case, but while climbing up you lose contact with the roof.
