Need somebody to fix conversion errors

Post by Ultimate Freedoomer »

Okay, so I’m done with the UDMF conversion for the Heretic maps. The only thing left is that the linedef function differences between Doom & Heretic caused issues during the "vanilla-to-Hexen" Format conversion. I was wondering if anybody better versed in linedefs than me would like me to upload/send the ZIP so you can fix said errors for me?

The only way, I know of, to 'fix' the conversion errors in a resultant Heretic (Hexen) pwad or UDMF pwad would be to load both pwads, the original pwad and the converted Hexen format pwad or UDMF pwad, side by side
Spoiler:
and go systemacally through the linedef specials and sector specials one by one and correct any errors.

Obviously 217 is the incorrect linedef special, which needs to be corrected to linedef special 12, like the other doors in that area.

You can do multiple windows in GZDB? Anyway, I get that. I just needed help from somebody who knows the ins & outs of the formats better than me.

First: stop using gzdb, jump to udb.
Second: you can have as many instances of udb, as your ram allows.
