Description

Modern Dday with it's higher precision math (I assume this is the cause) is unable to handle 0 tic/time lengths in ded's reliably (i.e XG, mobj defs etc) unlike 1.8.6; it seg faults, infinite loops etc.

May I raise the possibility of DDay automatically correcting such (i.e automatically converting 0 time values to the equivalent of the minimum amount of time the definition type supports? To avoid fatal errors and crashes in Dday.

I suggest an automatic correction because older mods may have used 0 tic/time values.

Obviously, I am aware that Dday never officially supported 0 time lengths.

Seg faults and infinite loops certainly are bugs that should be fixed.
