Post Maps That Are Supposed to Work But Don't HERE
« on: April 04, 2014, 19:49:02 »
So the team is trying to crack down on maps with bugs that result in not being able to complete a level. Examples of this might be a switch does not initiate a wall or lift to go down, or something along those lines.

Now we're well aware that voodoo dolls (and thus voodoo doll scripts) do not work online in Odamex, and while it is certainly something the team wants to have in the future, the best way to approach this is still disputed.

So, if a map works in ZDoom 1.23b33, but does not work in Odamex, please let us know about it in this thread. Please be sure to provide a link to the wad, the map involved, and as many details as possible on how to replicate the issue.

Thanks!

The first switch here on map20 does not work.

doom 2 pwad.
Kill the revenant and rush to the switch. This should lower the floor, but it doesn't.
0.7.0 client.

It works fine in the zdoom build linked.

edit: I think this is some sort of compability flag issue. just opened 0.7.0 client to try it in single player and it worked fine, but I clearly remember it being broken.
I was hosting this wad online a while ago and it clearly did not work as you can see in this demo.

I was running this dehacked patch on the server. Could it have broken the lift?
