Description: An example of how to get conveyorbelt scripts running in
  vanilla Heretic as well as in Zdoom, Vavoom and Legacy. 
  (Legacy in particular)
  The map is using the ALLTRIGGER linedef flag to get Legacy to
  run it's own conveyorbelt script.
  This obviously should work just as well with Boom based wads for Doom2.

  The part taken from hcount.wad by Creapis is the mechanic to get 
  it moving. Had it not been for this wad, I would probably not 
  have bothered to even try.

  The door is there for the sake of Zdoom, Eternity and Vavoom compatibility,
  where the Voodoo doll will start moving at once. In contrast to
  HereticP and Legacy where something will only be affected by the 
  current after it's been made to move ever so slightly.

  The door for the gasbag is there to make sure there's no unforseen 
  issues that spring up on different ports by having two versions
  of the same action execute.

  ReDoom - It's tested and works in ReDoom. But since it's still in it's
  infancy. (like it doesn't even have working teleporters in Heretic)
  it's working quite differentely. It do have voodoo dolls. But they
  won't travel on the conveyor belt, so it uses the gasbag instead.
  Once this is changed however, I have no reason to believe it
  wouldn't work just as well as in any other port I've tested it in.

Additional Credits to: Creaphis for his hcount.wad, which I used as base when I made this.
  ID and Raven of course for the games.
