XWE problem: saves decorate but actor dont behave

Recommended Posts

so, I have this monster actor which I downloaded and modifyed for my own project, I edit this in XWE and it does save the code, but when I test the actor in GZDOOM via doombuilder it behaves like if I never modifyed it, infact it behaves exactly like the original WAD I started my work on. the DECORATE entry contains a shitload of code for many other actors I imported. So I need some help figure this pain out.

here is code

//////////////////////

ACTOR SpeedDemon : cacodemon 30122

  obituary "%o was to slow for a SpeedDemon."
  hitobituary "%o was swallowed by a SpeedDemon."

  mass 400

I'm not well versed with DECORATE, but one thing to remember when using inheritance is not to duplicate code.
See the note on top of the page http://zdoom.org/wiki/Classes:Cacodemon .
I replaced the custom sprite reference with the AgathoDemon sprite.
Seems to work, except it moves a bit jittery.

ACTOR SpeedDemon : cacodemon 30122
{
  obituary "%o was too slow for a SpeedDemon."  // too
  hitobituary "%o was swallowed by a SpeedDemon."
  health 1
  // radius 31
  // height 56
  // mass 400
  speed 25
  // painchance 128
  BloodColor "99 50 0"
  // seesound "caco/sight"
  // painsound "caco/pain"
  // deathsound "caco/death"
  // activesound "caco/active"
  // attacksound "caco/melee"

could it be so, that I add // to the areas you did, and keep the sprites as they are and still have it working?

If your sprites have a corresponding full set of rotations, then yes, by all means use them.
I used the AgathoDemon just to show a different set of sprites from the standard ones.

The lines marked with // are redundant in your code as they will be inherited from the
original code. Basically, // turns anything behind them into comments and are ignored at
compilation time. Therefore you can either keep them or delete them from your code.

Yes, that should work for you.

I included the example so that you can take it apart with Slade3. :-)
