Long sounds (?) are not identified Edit

Slade 3 can't identify some sounds in _SMB417.WAD (from The Sky May Be); DSCACSIT, for example. It seems that it's due to their size (>64k). I selected the DSCACSIT entry and used Slade's console :

> type snd_doom
Identifying as Sound (Doom Format)
Identification failed

I used r588 build from

Fixed in r589. SLADE3 had inherited from SLumpEd the belief that the number of samples in a sound was stored as a 16-bit value, and that the last two bytes of the header were always zero. Whereas it's a 32-bit value.

Doom graphic detected as A&A Edit

_SMB417.WAD, STCFN042 is detected as "Graphic (A&A)".

> type gfx_doom
Identifying as Graphic (Doom)
Identification failed
Fixed in r589. These lumps are poorly formed -- if you convert them back to the Doom format, they'll shrink considerably in the process. MISFC0, for example, can go from 4792 bytes to 18. Less spectacularly, STCFN042 shrinks from 1026 bytes to 53. To avoid false positives (because misidentification are possible with a number of these formats), if the sprite was larger than a theoretical maximum for its dimensions, it was rejected. Now it's accepted, but the format is marked as a possible poor fit so if another format seems more likely the other will be preferred.

Nodes are wrongly labeled as compressed Edit

The displayed type of NODES lump is "Map Nodes (Compressed)", even when nodes are not really compressed (in doom2.wad, for example).

Fixed in r619. This type's "format" property had been commented out, so that it did not do any check to verify that the format fit, other than simply looking at the lump's name.

No map preview Edit

Not sure if it's a bug or something with my system. The map preview doesn't work. When SLADE3 window with MAP## selected becomes active, the preview area isn't refreshed. See screenshot:

r674 build from used. OS: Windows XP SP3.

r685 should have fixed that.

MAP30's reject table is misidentified as "Sound (PC Speaker)" Edit

MAP30's reject table is misidentified as "Sound (PC Speaker)".

> type map_reject
Identifying as Map Reject Table
REJECT: Identification failed

I think there should be some kind of statistical type detection, that is, if we've seen 29 lumps named REJECT and they were reject tables, then it's very probable that 30th is, as well. Version: r686 build from OS: WindXP SP3.

Fixed in r732 by lowering reliability of PC speaker type.

Audio player doesn't work Edit

Audio player doesn't work under my account (all the contols are greyed out). Here's the slade3.log:

(Here I tried to play D_RUNNIN). Attempts to play a SFX also fail (greyed out controls, but nothing printed to the console). But it works if I run Slade from another account. (that account name contains only English letters.) Slade3 r717, Windows XP SP3.

This was marked as fixed in r774. If the problem persists, try the "Write temp files to SLADE directory rather than system temp folder" option as a workaround. --Gez 16:43, November 6, 2010 (UTC)

Can't replicate. :/
Yes. As per SVN log this was fixed by slayer in r771. I can't replicate either with r785 build (didn't use r791 because it contains another bug, fixed in r796 as per SVN log).

No warning when closing texture editor with unsaved changes Edit

When closing texture editor with unsaved changes, no "Save changes?" dialog is shown.

Fixed with r885

Music of map02@killadve.wad plays back incorrectly Edit

Both Slade3 and SlumpEd play D_STALKS in killadve.wad incorrectly (the instruments get out of sync... I don't know how to describe it). PrBoom+ and GZDoom play it correctly. I use Slade3 r767, Windoes XP SP3.

Fixed by the new mus2mid code from r889.

Archive tab,but not archive, closes when choosing Cancel in the "Save changes?" dialog Edit

Archive tab,but not archive itself, closes when choosing Cancel in the "Save changes?" dialog when closing a tab.

This doesn't do this anymore so it must have been fixed at some point.

Can`t import properly. Edit

Your software is really nice and helped me in modding, but! I can`t import stuff properly, you see when I want to import I need to select a file in the archive. When the thing imports the file I selected is replaced with the one I imported using the name of the replaced file.

Please fix this and add more stuff to this program, it`s near awesome!

If you want your imported file to be new entries, use Archive->Import Files... instead of Entry->Import. Entry->Import imports into the entry, so it replaces the content of the existing entry. While Archive->Import imports into the archive, as new entries. --Gez 14:43, October 6, 2011 (UTC)
