The '''Medusa effect''' occurs when there is more than one patch occupying the same column in any middle texture of a two-sided linedef that is visible in the display window. Due to a game engine limitation, these will not display properly. The area where the middle texture would be displayed is instead a series of multicolored horizontal lines. This "wall" of multicolored lines appears to extend infinitely into the floor.
