Scrolling floor questions

Post by Amuscaria »

I'm having a couple of problems of getting some scrolling floors to work.

1) How do I make barrels and items on the scrolling floors (using section specials 201+ Scroll or Carry types) actually move with move with the floor? Barrels and other items doesn't seem to be affected by the floor at all, but players and monsters work fine.

2) How do I get the floor texture on a 3D floor to scroll? Putting the special on the control sector's floor doesn't seem to do anything.

thank you in advance.

1) you don't. These specials only carry the player. That's how Hexen defined them. To carry other things you need to use a Boom scroller.
2) Obviously you need to scroll the control sector's ceiling, because that's what gets transferred to the 3D floor.
