Acorn Doom bug
================================================================ Title : Acorn Doom bug Filename : ACORNBUG.WAD Author : Christopher Bazley Email Address : mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org Misc. Author Info : Thirty-one year old unmarried father of none residing in Cambridge, UK. Presently employed as a software engineer at ARM Ltd. Wait a minute, why are you reading this rubbish? Description : This WAD demonstrates a bug in the Acorn RISC OS port of Doom. The bug exists at least in version 2.03 but may exist in other versions too. Normally, enemies in connected sectors are alerted by the sound of the player firing a weapon. Sound is supposed to travel across up to one two-sided linedef with the 'block sounds' flag set, but not a second linedef with this flag set (nor closed doors or raised lifts). In Acorn Doom, sounds instead travel no further than the first connected sector entered via a linedef that has its 'block sounds' flag set. This changes the game significantly because it prevents enemies in more distant sectors from being alerted to the player's presence. This map demonstrates the bug by being impossible to complete in Acorn Doom. The exit door can only be opened from the far side by an alerted enemy. Despite the air duct linking the two rooms, troopers on the far side cannot hear the player (because the linedef at the near end of the duct has its 'block sounds' flag set). Additional Credits to : Anthony J. Burden & Simon Oke (for writing DETH). Lee Noar (for porting DETH to RISC OS). Eddie Edwards & R-Comp Interactive (for the RISC OS port of Doom). Id Software for creating Doom in the first place. ================================================================ * Play Information * Episode and Level # : Map 01 Single Player : Yes Cooperative 2-4 Player : Yes (Are you crazy?)
