Incorrect rendering of actors + decals - bug?

Postby daskraut » Wed Nov 01, 2017 3:11 pm

Hi folks!

While fiddling around with actors (statues) and decals I noticed that they are being rendered too narrowly. All images are all PNG, transparent background, significantly higher resolution than vanilla stuff.

Is this a bug that can be fixed or do I have to manually fix it every time?
If i have to correct it with XScale / X-Scale - is 1.25 a reliable x-scaling factor or do I have to work it out every time?

I'm fairly new - please forgive my stupid question... :oops:

The default scaling in Doom is 1.2, because all assets were designed with 320x200 pixels and a 4:3 aspect ratio but for models this isn't done because the original Doomsday models I used as reference did not do it. So you have to apply that manually.

Thank you for the info, Graf Zahl! I shall go with 1.2 in the future.
