minor error: BOOM linedef action not working???

Postby MLdB » Thu Sep 11, 2003 1:22 pm

in regular boom-style editing (not ZdoomHexen) i found that:

while both LineDef action...

14448
locked door
walk over once
open only
fast
red keycard
keycard <> skullkey

14576
dito but BLUE keycard

are working as they should, but:

144512
dito but YELLOW keycard

activates with/without any and all keys :)

uhm... i haven't tested, but... do locked doors always open if their corresponding key isn't present in the level???

If that's the way things are, then it definately shouldn't be. Using scripting, you can make a yellow key appear in any number of ways, none of which require the key to be placed on the map in an editor.

I tested this and found the following:

14512 requires a blue key, not a yellow one.
14576 requires a yellow key, not a blue one.

Both linedefs work perfectly in ZDoom. I cross checked with PrBoom and there it worked too.

They do definitely not. Map12 of Doom2 has a door with a red lock but the key only appears in multiplayer so in single player the door is one way only.

Was 144512 a typo, or do you really mean 144512?

He clearly meant 14512 because that is exactly the type he described (although I think he got the keys wrong. Maybe that was the problem.)
