UDMF End Normal ends the game, not level

Postby Alex » Sun Oct 11, 2020 1:36 pm

When i wanted to make an exit switch in UDMFormat and set the action to End Normal, it ended the entire game not only level. I have searched on youtube and forums to make sure i chose the right one, and i did. Please help.

You want "exit" not "end". In the original Doom game, the level transitions were referred to as "exits", and the post-boss cutscenes were referred to as "ends".

I didnt find anything such as "EXIT" in the actions. There was only End Game, End Normal, End Secret.

Okay, fair enough.

The actions you are looking for are "End Normal" and "End Secret", then.

Make sure that your MAPINFO definition for the map is correct, or name your map "E1M1" (for Doom I) or "MAP01" (for Doom II) if you do not want to write your own definition.

I did name it MAP01 and i also run it with DOOM II and im pretty sure my MAPINFO is correct too. Its still not working and i have no idea why, because i have done several maps in the doom format but also one in the udmf format before and there the end switch worked.

At this point, I suggest you upload your mod so somebody can take a look.

Is there a "next" definition in your MAPINFO? If not, that's likely the source of the problem. Without defining a map that GZDoom should go to next, the engine defaults to one of the EndGame things respective to each game.

That should fix it. Not having a next definition does seem to force it into an endgame. Encountered that recently when porting an old prototype.
