Description

On some occasions if an enemy is standing on a small ledge and I take cover behind that ledge, the enemy can attack me. I noticed this first in one of the very first rooms in Doom 2 (the room with the 4 plattforms and 4 gunners(2 switches, blue floor). When I eliminate 3 of the gunners and hide directly behind the ledge the 4th gunner is standing on, I get hit. I compared this to the behavior of PrBoom+ and Chocolate Doom and on this ports the gunner shoots, but all shots hit the opposite wall.

User Vermil compared Windows Doomsday 1.8.6 and 1.9 Beta 6.9 to Dos Doom2 and seems to get the same behavior.

Problem found. Its due to an incorrect slope calculation in P_AimLineAttack. Will be fixed in the upcoming 1.9.0-beta6.10 release.
