Strange issue while trying to create a raised outline

Postby Cedric Fovingdat » Mon Oct 26, 2020 6:54 pm

Hello
I have a strange issue with Doom Builder: I'm trying to create a raised outline of a pentagram on the floor, but there seems to be a strange issue with it. I created the shape itself and then lines inside it to create an outline. I'll post some screenshots to illustrate what I mean. The center and four of the star branches work just as intended, but one branch just does this weird thing: it looks as though I raised or lowered the ceiling, but I didn't. There's just this texture popping out and I can't seem to select the sector I intend to raise. Note that I did not do anything with textures or otherwise, I just drew the linedefs. Here's the screenshots of what I mean:

Thanks in advance for your help,
Regards,

Try hitting the DEL key when having them selected or highlighted (deletes the unwated textures).

Actually, it doesn't seem to be a texture issue, as when I load the map, I get these errors:

Error while reading UDMF map data: Missing required field 'sidefront' at linedef 37.

I fixed the problem: I deleted the branch, then drew the inside lines first, then the outer ones.
