Wha? Do they? I don't think so... Unless you're talking about using slope things. Does this program use slope things?

Suffice to say, I have not been near my beautiful machine for the better part of a week and cannot test it. Same thing happened when .90 came out. And now this.

Stupid kharma...

Yes, it does need slope things.


But it doesn't use tids or tags.

Hey, two birds with one stone. I can generate some nice terrain quickly and easily and with a bit of reverse engineering I might just finally learn how to use slope things! ;)

If a program is stated as being a "command-line" tool, this is normal. As somebody else here said, they are not meant to be double-clicked from within Windows; command-line tools are meant to be run from a command line :)

If you do it often, you could create a shortcut to the program and use the properties dialog on the shortcut to put "cmd /k " before the actual command itself in the "Target" field. For example, turn "c:\my doom wads\aprogram.exe" into "cmd /k c:\my doom wads\aprogram.exe".

This will cause a command-prompt to open and (due to the "/k") STAY open after running the command. You can then run the command again by typing its name in the command prompt window. The command to exit a command prompt is "exit" (oddly enough :) ).

If the above looks like gibberish, then sorry, you're stuffed until somebody makes a GUI version of the tool, which may not happen as GUI programs are much more complicated to write than console (i.e., command-line) programs :(

Hey, thx to all :D.

It took me 3 days to make it (I got stuck with the maths :mono:). I will (probably) release the source code when it'll be fully finished. So - suggest features ;). (I've got some in my mind... like GUI and lightmap generator.)

I've also uploaded fixed version which doesn't generate test.txt file.

Aww boohoo you have to actually type something out. Isn't zdoom command line anyway?!

This thing is neat but the practicality at this point seems small. I think I may need to just play with the height some or something, unless my heightmaps just aren't as kosher.

what's sector height 0? 128 128 128 gray, or black?

I'm so happy to have You as my Bro man! Your power is godlike.

I suggest Codeimp adds this as a part of Doom Builder along with the next release of DB.

Maybe randy could look at implementing something that uses this same technique but doesn't use up the slope things?

:twisted:
