Ancient DOS Games - Overview of the Doom Engine

Oh excellent, I'm currently writing a raycaster for fun to understand some of the old-school techniques and I was curious on the details of how Doom works.

He claims that you can work around visplane issues by crunching disconnected sectors into a single sector reference, but that's wrong, isn't it?

Yeah, Visplanes are done by subsectors afaik. Doesn't have anything to do with sectors in themselves.
