Title                   : Acorn Doom bug

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).
