Questions about sprites.

Recommended Posts

1- In some custom monsters I know that to define the sprites, you need to add SS_start and SS_end ,but i noticed that there are other monsters have black sprites before original ones between SS_start and SS_end, what is that? Example "Sentinel"
2- what do "null" and "tnt1" do in a decoration?
3-Why don't monsters like "Sentinel", "icelich" and "darknessrift" drop items like others do? though I know the method to do so.
thanx.

NULL is a heresy that should never be used. Whenever you see the NULL sprite used in some DECORATE code, replace it with TNT1.

As for the monster-specific questions, the answer is "because it's how they were made". Monsters don't need to drop items. In Doom, only humans drop stuff, imps and other demons do not. None of the Hexen monsters drop anything.
