Making a sector stop blinking...

Recommended Posts

...in Doom 1, is this possible? Since there's no command for it I've tried to change the brightness to the same as neighbour sectors, but no luck. Is there a way?

I can't remember if this is just Doom II, or even if I'm remembering correctly, but I seem to recall that the player triggering a W1 or WR line action to set the sector(s) to 255 brightness would cancel the blink...

Pardon that horrible mush of a sentence, and also pardon if that's totally wrong and I'm thinking of UDMF or something.

It's not possible in vanilla at all - the effect even persists after using a floor texture + effect changing action.

In Boom, you can easily fake it by a "fake" blinking effect. You put a voodoo-doll on a conveyor belt and let it repeatably cross light-changing lines that will make the sector blink. Then at one point raise floor to block the voodoo-doll's movement, so that it can no longer cause blinking.
