Action 65535

Recommended Posts

In the alpha versions of Doom, there's a pretty good amount of regular walls that are marked with this. Anyone know what it was for?

That's action -1 in signed arithmetics. It was probably meant to be "no action".

Also interesting in Doom 2 v1.666 has many tagged sectors in MAP02 without any action assigned to it. I wonder if they had something in mind with it and ditched it later on.

Giving dummy tags to sectors was a way to make sure DoomEd+DoomBSP would not merge sectors together. So, maybe that?

I know. In MAP02 is no action involved which would require them to put any tags there, though.
