Wolfen line use bug?

Post by LilWhiteMouse »

I was just replaying Wolfen with 52 and my bookcase doesn't work anymore. Last version I used it with was 47, which worked. Is this something already fixed possibly?

There was a bug in the older versions that any line with a special made it possible to use any line behind it no matter whether it's blocked or not. What you did in this particular case was to exploit the bug.

What happens here is that the polyobj lines now block the lines you tagged (as they should). To fix this either put the script activation special on the polyobj lines (that's the way Hexen always did it, in your case you'd have to use setlinespecial) or give the polyobj an activation type 'usethru' so that it no longer blocks. I did the second option and after that it worked fine again.
