    azerty YAY!
  1. Where's the 'like' button on this thing?
  2. It's actually fixed entirely in EE since cardboard was added.
  3. Fair word of warning: E4 is much more difficult than E1/2/3 so be prepared for a lot more hellspawn, some damn cool level design :) Glad you've been having fun with the game we all love so much.
  4. I don't think there is one, and yeah, it's limited in use. Portals are mostly good for ROR scenarios. Cars and other 3D structures are an example of things that 3d floors are better at. Too bad I'm not implementing 3d floors ;) ... again :(
  5. You could make a replica of your main area that could be seen through the other side of the first portal. So instead of: Main area->Portal Area->Main Area you would go: Main area->Portal Area->second portal area That would work. You can't use portals to see back into the area you are in. That's why I'm not allowing linked portals on sloped surfaces.
  6. So the camera starts inside the player, then goes to another place, then the inner portal sends the camera back to inside the player. When the inner portal renders, the first thing that gets rendered is the surface the first portal is applied to, which makes it render the first portal again. This creates a recursive portal rendering which there is currently no way to fix.
  7. where are anchored area a and anchored area b in relation to one another?
  8. So wait, are you viewing a portal through a portal... does the inner portal link back to the original area?
  9. Do you just get HOM? Or some kind of error message?
  10. Well, I am working on the clipping code for linked portals as we speak ;) Other than that, can you post a screenshot and explanation of the situation that isn't working? Maybe I can think of something...
  11. ZOMG Fredrik!!!!
  12. ... Yep. The absolute last thing on my mind when I spend what limited free time I have working on doom code would have to be "Is this compatible with zdoom?"
  13. So basically, you would rather have a scripting language in place, with an API that had to be hacked to bits to work around the limitations in the map format, only to have to learn a completely new API when the better map format was implemented? Sounds like a piss-poor idea to me...
  14. Zomg! I think I code for this port! I'm so excited!
