What does the [-Shown] tag do?

Recommended Posts

So, alongside the -Hidden tag, there's a Linedef option named -Shown. Originally, I thought it would instantly mark the selected Linedef as "seen" (I.E. It displays because it thinks the player has seen it), but it doesn't seem to do anything.

It would be useful for making images/text in the Automap and for Death match maps if that were what it did... so, what does it do?

That's what it actually does.

Note that 2-sided linedefs with no height difference between their front and back sectors aren't displayed on the automap even if the player has seen them. That might be why you thought it didn't work.
