an odd glitch

I'm not asking for a fix because chances are if I delete these 3 sectors and rebuild them it will be fine. Its just one of those odd things that happen very seldom.

In the game when hit with anything they block and show the force field sprite. They are using HRP textures. Nothing custom. No tags anywhere on the crate walls or sectors. Goofy.

Maybe they have the force field tile number saved in their overpic property? That happened to me in a map with some walls spawning pieces of glass when affected by explosions, like if they were mirrors, and if I remember correctly was because of their overpic.

Thanks for the hint. I'll look up what overpic is and see if thats the case here.
No luck in finding anything I can understand about overpic or how to check or change it.

Press F8 on the wall in 2D mode, it will list all of the wall properties including overpicnum

do I change it to zero if I want no overpic? or -1?

Is there an explanation of its use somewhere?

I guess the safest thing would be to change overpic to the same number as the picnum.

I don't know the conditions under which it displays or reacts to the overpic instead of the picnum, although I'm sure some guys around here do.

I guess I should just look at a properly working texture and compare. ;)

yep, I need to change it to zero. I have no idea why it got changed to a different tile but oh well...

Not sure if you guys are talking about what i think you ae talking about.

But if you press M on a red wall (on 3d mode) to create a mask, select the forcefield texture and then take the mask away (either with /, 1 or with M again) the wall will act as a forcefield.

In this case I created 3 square sectors on the floor, set the firstwall so as not to mess up the sloped ceiling, raised them up, put a texture on them. No masking.

it's a random thing.

sometimes two-sided walls (red walls) take on hittable properties as well - so you get bullet tags hanging in the air if you try to shoot over/through them.

don't know why it happens.

I was doing more mapping in the same area as the previous one which produced the errors. Turns out almost every single sector I created had 1 of 3 different overtiles on each side of the red walls. I had to manually delete them in over 100 walls. What a P.I.A.

Its a good thing I'm almost done in that area. <_<

That sucks -- if you had said something, me or someone else could have whipped up a mapster script that would have fixed that for you in minutes.

Just FYI, the areas giving me grief are the ones behind the curtains in the E1L2 strip club.

In Duke 1.3D the masked wall with force field texture will actually appear there if you enter DNUNLOCK. There are some other locations, don't quite remember where now.

I think there's something like that in Dark Side near the outer door of the airlock.

Any guesses as to why the overtile is being applied to all new sector walls in that area?

The texture was already set on something else in the area, but the masking bit was turned off. Drawing new walls adjacent to a wall with the texture set on it propagated it to the new walls as well.

OK. That means I can blame the sloppy mappers from 3DR because I was modding E1L2. I went and checked another copy of the original and found a few white walls in the offending area with hightile numbers set.
