Yellow Key: Card or Skull?[edit]

In the version I have, the Yellow key is a skull, not a card. It was listed as such in an earlier version of the "Things" section, then changed.

Has this object changed from card to skull, or vice-versa, between versions? If not, the changes to inventory and walkthrough sections should be removed.

Maybe check the Key FAQ (linked in the Keys article).  I'm 99 percent sure it's a skull in my version also.  If it did change between versions, that would be pretty interesting, but I think it more likely that somebody made a copy-paste error while writing the initial versions of these articles, a short eternity ago.  :>    Ryan W 23:52, 13 March 2007 (UTC)
The Key FAQ doesn't specify card or skull, it just bitches about it being yellow! Actually, I wrote the walkthrough myself a month or two ago, and I originally had a card for the Yellow key, which didn't jibe with the inventory, so I went back and checked the level, found the inventory was correct, and changed the walkthrough. Someone since changed both the walkthrough and the inventory. So I know it wasn't a copy-and-paste issue. Alychne 22:13, 27 March 2007 (UTC)
I played the level again, and it is a skull in both vanilla v1.9 and in Doom95.  So it should definitely be a skull in the table/walkthrough, with changes between versions (if any) noted in the "development" section.
User: regularly makes changes to walkthroughs which, while not obviously inaccurate, confuse me as to their intended purpose.  If the above happens again, I shall think seriously about double-checking the inventory in every map article to which he/she has contributed.    Ryan W 22:56, 9 April 2007 (UTC)
