Textures "patched apart" (Advice needed)

Recommended Posts

In order to reduce the level of redundance in my upcoming project, I would ask you a question: does it work if I make new textures out of patches which are in the Doom IWAD, but not in the project's PWAD? I mean, does any "referencial system" work within the IWAD signed as a resource as you run it with a port? OR are the originally defined patches needed to be in the PWAD as well, otherwise it wouldn't work?

The patches do not need to be in the PWAD, don't worry.

So, take a simple example:

I have the borders of the texture COMPTILE as a transparent texture and so, I put them around all the TEKWALL* textures previously defined in the Ultimate Doom IWAD. I moved all three patches (since only TEKWALL4 is done individually by an unique 128x128 patch) into the PWAD and then patched the textures using 1 or 2 of all TEKWALL patches and 2-2 of both borders around it, resulting in a new texture a bit reminding of COMPTILE itself. Then I removed the TEKWALL patches from the PWAD.

So, you say that ingame they would still show up as long as I run the PWAD with the UD IWAD?

Yep. As long as all the patches used are present -- either in the IWAD or in any of the loaded PWADs -- it's fine.
