Heretic/Hexen things in Doom

Postby Graf Zahl » Sun Apr 17, 2005 10:50 am

I noticed this in a discussion on the Newdoom forum concerning this issue:

Tiealk wrote:Make use of the range 32768-65535! Currently the editor number is a signed short so these become negative. You could do the simple approach and say:

35000+x = Doom
40000+x = Hexen
60000+x = Heretic

That would leave 55000+x open in case you eventually decide to support Strife as well.



Since the high numbers are currently completely unused it would be a simple and easy way to be able to place all items in all games without having to resort to DECORATE inheritance.

No. The only limiting factor is that the internal type is a signed short so if you didn't change that you'd get a negative number.

DECORATE items can use any editor number they like. There are no reservations - intentionally not.
