VERY annoying texture bug

Fri Oct 24, 2003 9:12 pm

I just released a wad to /newstuff yesterday, and today I just found out about this bug. I slapped myself in the face when I saw it because it's ALL OVER my map.

Normally when you put AASHITTY in a map (or AASTINKY for Doom1) it displays HOM. But not having a texture somewhere can give good effects. Personally, I put AASHITTY anywhere I need an effect like this so DeePsea doesn't bitch at me for a missing texture.

Here's some shots I got of a room or two, but I'm already afraid whoever reviews is going to have 48 and wonder why the level looks ridiculous.

However, it does give you a good opportunity to show off your level, even if there are inconsiderate bleeding skulls all over the place.

[10:12:08] <SargeBaldy> that's embarassing :P
[10:12:17] <Nanami> That sucks so much ass.
[10:12:38] <Nanami> "Install 48 to play Cyb's map! Now install 47 to play Nami's map!"
[10:13:05] <Nanami> I hope he fixes this tonight.
[10:15:48] <Mancubus_II> wow
[10:16:22] <Nanami> Now it doesn't matter what my map looks like. Everyone's going to install 48 to play Cyb's map and see mine requires something less than 48 and skip it.
[10:16:45] <Mancubus_II> :(
[10:17:05] <Mancubus_II> are there other options to using that texture?
[10:17:17] <Mancubus_II> what sort of effect does it give using it and not having it displayed?
[10:17:24] <Nanami> Putting no texture, but then DeePsea bitches for not having a texture there.
[10:17:39] <Mancubus_II> oh
[10:21:21] <Nanami> Anyway it's too late now, I already uploaded the map.

Sorry if I sound irritable, I've just been working on this for months and the day after I upload it I find a big bug that destroys my map, and I know nobody's even going to give the level a glance now...

Ahhh, but they must glance at it to see what's wrong with it.

Sorry, Cyb emailed me about this a while ago, and I forgot all about it. I'll get it fixed, but right now it looks like you'll probably have to wait until Saturday night for 2.0.49.

Hooray for Randy.

isn't your map for doom2.exe anyways? surely people can use prboom or something in the meantime?
