My Dehextra patch doesn't work properly 😔

Recommended Posts

I have attempted to construct a custom enemy for Boom compatible ports using Dehextra, but something went a bit wrong.

The enemy, while, it does spawn and render as it should, seems to for the most part get stuck on a single frame, until it ends up in pain or death states. It also doesn't seem to produce sounds, so I don't know if they are badly defined, or the call for them never gets reached.

 

I believe I have set the frames to loop properly, so I am not sure what the issue is. Below are screenshots of Whacked Beta.

I am also including a zipfile that contains the ready-to-use wad with the assets, the bex patched and a test map in one file. And the bex patch itself as a standalone file as a bonus.

Okay, I took the suggestion from a decinocord patron and edited the dehacked file by hand with a text editor. It had turned out that the frames weren't pointed to like Whacked had shown. I managed to fix it.
However, the sounds still don't seem to work for some reason. I checked the textfile, it should work. But it doesn't play, even if I conver the sounds to imp files.

 

here's the new code:

Thanks. I have already figured it out by myself a few years ago by looking at Heretic invades Doom though. Only thing left to improve on would be the sound quality.

 

LMP files work, but the alert sound is bad quality. PrBoom+ UM supports WAVs, and I heard they will play fine if you add reverb to them, but no luck on my end; it just plays at a low pitch.

 

Submitting it so others can look how I fixed it in case they need help with it themselves.
