Description

In Vanilla Doom, Pain Elementals can fire their Lost Souls through impassable barriers; this is taken advantage of on Map28 of Doom2.

However Boom changed the spawning behaviour of a PE's Lost Souls, which in turn both prevents Lost Souls being launched through impassable barriers and also prevents them being spawned at sharp vertical angles that Vanilla Doom allowed.

Dday has changed this behaviour to match Boom but currently offers no compatibility option to restore Vanilla Doom's behaviour (which is also expected by some classic pwads)

Please disregard this report; Dday does have a compat option for this named 'Lost Souls can get stuck inside walls'.

It seems to cover both of the above behaviour differences, though I wonder if a more explaining name could be chosen (though admittedly I can't currently think of anything better).
