Most likely not. They are probably far too complex for it.

Why? There are enough good Deathmatch maps out there - even for ZDoom. In terms of mapping Deathmatch has quite limited appeal because you can't do much aside from providing some room to allow players blasting themself into oblivion.

@Risen - Well, I am very sorry for that, I would have fixed this on my own but as I said, reallife catched me once again :( I have to work for my job now about 80% more hours then I usually had to do few weeks before and this makes it very hard to find enough time for doom, sleep and lunch :(

Please do not spam this thread. I was rightfully annoyed because that particular question has been asked and answered multiple times. In fact, I think you asked it before.

I'm adding the following to the defaultmap with mapinfo. Any reasons why it should not be like this?

evenlighting - with high-res, I don't think this is necessary and it makes sloped areas look better.

strictmonsteractivation - As suggested for all new projects.

forcefallingdamage - I think it fits our definition of the project to include this. You won't notice it often, there aren't a lot of places in E1 to fall very far.

filterstarts - allows multiple start points based on skill settings

If strictmonsteractivation is set all maps should at least be checked for proper door triggers so that monsters still can open selected doors (and activate lifts)

Hmm? I thought you posted a single file that was to be pasted into each map's scripts code? Does it need to be customized for each map now? If not, you only need the one library, and you can make any changes you want to it without needing to recompile the scripts for any maps. In fact, if you're not providing any functions, the mappers could just use the following as the library code:

Code: Select all

#library "intermis"
(Yes, one line!) As long as your version of the library is what's in the wad, it will all magically work as long as the maps #imports it.

Oh? Then what's the deal with people saying you need the library source to compile the map scripts? Is that only necessary when functions are present?

If that's the case, this would make it much more flexible for me.
