I was being lazy and using shorthand.
The code didn't actually say
vert[ i ]=vert_i

it said
vert[ 0 ] = vert_0;
vert[ 1 ] = vert_1;
vert[ 2 ] = vert_2;
vert[ 3 ] = vert_3;

It ought to say
vert[ 0 ].v = vert_0;
vert[ 1 ].v = vert_1;
vert[ 2 ].v = vert_2;
vert[ 3 ].v = vert_3;

But, as long as you don't add a new variable at the beginning of the struct vert, I don't think it's going to make any difference.

By the way, are there any instructions on how to use the WLD editor?

Ah right okay, I've edited the code accordingly =) I might want to add a steel trim if I make any outside looking doors, like a little raised bit at the bottom and top, so it could come in handy as that'd be another sector.

Not bundled with DivDX, no! Generally it's pretty straight forward however. The two boxes on the right correspond to the floor and ceiling textures, and the numbered boxes correspond to the height. The box above that is the current wall texture.

You can create all kinds of cool things with it, but you do have to bare in mind that you can't do "sector over sector" level design - though you can fake it by using teleports/flags and loading/unloading new WLDs as you enter and exit areas.

You can have sectors INSIDE sectors, however - though do be careful when using the set_point_m8 command, as generally nesting a moving sector inside any more than one other sector is a recipe for disaster.

Oh, also - move around using arrow keys and use Z/X to zoom. I'd advise against clicking the right mouse button as that's liable to crash DivDX at present. In fact, it's likely to crash regardless - save often :p

Just a quick question then.
How the heck do you delete a vertex in the editor?

You have to delete the sector it's a part of. You can't delete sectors or walls on their own, possibly as this would allow for people testing it with really badly broken sectors, which would be hell for the poor engine to try to interpret.

If you can't delete a sector, then your WLD is corrupted, and trying to load it will usually crash the program. D: Save and back up your WLDs often folks! Mode 8 is a temperamental betch. :p
