[bzr] Light shines through doors
#71
Well how much a new lighting system will influence the CPU I currently cannot say. I am playing with different techniques and it's interesting as well to work on that. Specifically since it requires a lot of tricks to work proberly on this engine. That fascinates me.
If a possible new system would get too performance hungry, this feature would be an optional switch in the Graphics options.

However you do have a point and I agree with it: "Why change this at all if it always worked like that?"
Mainly it's because now with colored lighting people saw HOW the lighting actually works but never noticed it before. Secondly some also think they get disadvantages in Multiplayer if one is able to see light from weapons in a different room. Especially since the color of the light also points to the weapon used.

Actually what makes me work on this is part of your argument for the original lighting - turned for the worse:
In D2 Level 1 you have a secret room in the floor visible from your starting point. You see a blue glow there that points to shield powerups. If you collect those however you will see that the blue glow will not go away totally. This is because in the "ceiling" of the room with the red key there is a nother secret room containing shiedl powerups. And that is what you see on your starting location. So in this case this original lighting does not help - it rather confuses.
The greatest pleasure in life is to do what people say you cannot do.
Uhm... Honey, there's a head in the toilet!
