Typo in lights.pk3

Postby Marisa Kirisame » Mon Oct 21, 2019 6:03 am

While playing Heretic some days back I noticed something odd in the D'Sparil fight. The Serpent's fireballs had a really broken light with a massive flicker radius. I traced it down to this.
Code: Select allExpand view
// D'Sparil serpent fireball
flickerlight SERPENTBALL
    color 1.0 0.95 0.5
    size 588
    secondarySize 96
    chance 0.5
   attenuate 1

Pretty sure that size should be 88. Seems like this has been a thing for over two years and no one has noticed? The commit where it happened is this.

Amazing what kind of stuff goes unnoticed for so long...

In this case, it probably shows how few people play Heretic, or at least Heretic maps with D'Sparil in them.

I just checked out my own lights definition that I updated from the previous non-attenuated values and I'd set it to 84 myself. Not saying that's better (the difference would be barely noticeable - much less than a difference of 500 anyway) more that my own calculation got it pretty close to the intended official 88.

D'Sparil is typically fought in wide open-sky areas that are brightly lit, so the effect of dynlights is less pronounced that when they happen in small, dark corners.
