Yeah, right. You posted that at about 2:30 AM my time and had everything fixed by 4:30 AM.

Save some for me next time. :grin:

I don't doubt it. I didn't mean "just" in the context of "is that all you've done" but rather "are there any more changes that it would be useful to know about".

Funny word "just". ;)

Here's everything in the commit log since 1.45 (some of these are just changes to zdefs.acs, while others are actual code changes):

------------------------------------------------------------------------
r743 | rheit | 2008-02-12 21:00:22 -0600 (Tue, 12 Feb 2008) | 1 line

OK, thanks. I knew most of it but there are a few things in there that had passed me by.

Well, thank you very much to all of the ZDoom developers, particularly Randy and Graf Zahl. I have one question though (only the one) - is there anywhere we can find a Doom Builder config file update for all of the ZDoom editing modes? GZDoom has a fairly up-to-date link on its website, but that includes some GZDoom specific stuff (presumably) and doesn't cover the ZDoom - Doom as Doom and equivilant game types - not that those are used very often.

I'm trying to remember what the last Doom in Doom format addition would have been. I'm thinking either slopes or the ability to run a script?

The last specific addition was a control lump for sector type translation which I needed for my CoD patch - which reminds me: I really should make an update now that 2.2.0 is out.

So what about the other ZDoom configurations for DB? Like Doom as HeXen, Heretic as HeXen and HeXen, for example? Surely they must need some updates that the acc update won't cover?

I'm just thinking back and there have been very few things. I usually add stuff to my DeePsea config files and I can't remember the last time I had to do it. I'm not sure there will be anything versus 2.1.7.

Not much. There have been a very small amount of new line specials (2, to be precise; 37: Floor_MoveToValue and 47: Ceiling_MoveToValue), one new sector type (87: Use OutsideFog) and 2 new things (9038: Set Sector Color, 9039: Set Sector Fade) but that's all related to the editor configuration.

So, does anybody have suggestions for a more user-friendly list of changes that I could edit this news post to include? I know looking through the changelog isn't the best way to really see what's different from 2.1.7, especially since I gave that link so I wouldn't have to look through it. :)
