Damn it's cold, my nipples feel like pencil erasers!
Is this loss?
I've done itI've reinstalled mapsofchaos-hardcore, put "-fast" in the zdl command line and began the first map of episode 1 of ultimate and doom and died a couple times (my save begins at 00:00:00 of the level and I will not savescum)finally...a fair but difficult doom that cannot be easily beaten and enough ammo laying around so that I can shoot my enemies to death rather than being expected to cause demon infighting
Just finished TNT: Revilution and I think this is my 2nd favourite megawad (1st is Jenesis). Lots of really good maps, especially 08, 12, and especially 21. The track for that one was really well-made and I wish I could find a download somewhere
>>9593860I was very disappointed that he didn't say or reference this line in the beginning of Siberian Mayhem.
>>9593874YES SAME what a fucking shame
We're playing the Mountain of Grunch sequel for SNS today. The files required are huge so I suggest you open up doomseeker and find the missing WADs before the game formally starts. Also, this one is heavy on the monster spam, so I've set the life count to 4 instead of 1 so you have a better chance at savoring the maps.
Just curious.... what's the largest Doom/Doom2 level ever made?Is there an upper limit on the size?
>>9593863>anyway release half done gzdoom levels>faggot post gives little revenants>find blood gmota neat weapon
>>9593863>Interesting build fucked proper>Self-referencing height launcher>Smaller mapper released
>>9593896This makes my little revenant become the big revenant.
>>9593896How many much more content are you putting into this? I love La Tailor Girl but eventually there's going to be too many outfits.
>>9593931>Self-referencing height launchersounds like a fun weapon
>>9593889Look for the sunder maps,one of those probably takes the cake
>>9593889There a limits to number of entiries, particularly lines. Back to Saturn X E2 has a map that abuses it hard but I forgot which one.There's also more straightforward limit to how far apart coordinates can stuff be before distance calculation breaks.
>>9593889okuplok's slaughter mapholy hellfrom hellsecret pathcosmogenesisnot sure which is actually biggest, but there's a lot of 4 hour maps there
>>9593991Those arches are making me feel faint with the amount of time it must take to map that shit.Yeah I know you can copy paste after the first but still
SUNDAY NIGHT SHITSHOW TIME! Tonight we'll be playing the NIGHTMARE BEFORE GRUNCHMAS! Or whatever it's called. It's a sequel to Mountain of Grunch, and we'll be playing with BYOC! Vrsounds is also loaded, but note that it only works on a few maps. The password today is INFININIGGERFAGGOTOpen up Doomseeker and connect with Zandronum 3.1, this is on course to be one of the shitshow-iest shitshows to date.22.214.171.124:10666126.96.36.199:10666188.8.131.52:10666
>>9593959No such thing as too many. Especially when you play on the harder difficulties saveless so you're forced to always switch clothes when you take enough damage or ultimately die and restart
>>9594028We also have a mumble server if you want to shoot the shit with your fellow /vr/ anons, or just call them slurs.Address: 184.108.40.206Port: defaultUsername: Whatever you wantPassword: endoom

>>9594051any of the what?ANY OF THE WHAT, ANON!?THE DEMONS GOT HIM, BOYS!
>>9593870You will love Devilution.
What's the best Quake port nowadays? I played everything they had on the Steam version but I want to know which one to use for Arcane Dimensions and such
>>9594068Either IronWail or vkQuake.
>>9593991From what mapset is pic related?
>>9594092abyssmal speedmapping session 69 It says in the top left corner
>>9594104I rather not google thay acronym anon
what's the best (most convenient) software to make .mid music for doom specifically? (do people still use midi music for doom wads?)
>>9594104>Look up ass69 doomYes I can see that going very well.
>>9594104Are those maps serviceable? there are plenty of links,should i snag every one made after a certain date like 2020?
>>9594181>almost 20,000 enemiesIs this a sequel to Okuplok?
>>9593889>>9593984I had to shrink Temporal Tantrum MAP24 slightly to avoid breaking the coordinate distance limit. I think one of the Sunder maps also had to be shrunk during the testing process for the same reason.Basically, if two points on your map are too far apart, it causes overflows in some calculations, causing hit detection errors like melee either missing up close or hitting from ages away, and archviles having infinite range.
>>9594217Oh dear god
>>9594221>and archviles having infinite range.wanna bet some asshole will make a map abusing this gimmick?
>>9590234Well, you need to remain compatible withhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gxqYezKLgrohttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7V7gKb4ZY8Uhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pJLuYvnTHB4

Not to distract from SNS but the Party /v/an is playing Zandronum: >>>/v/625193562

very fatal error
>>9594028That was something. Thanks for joining.
>>9594028GGsthat was quite shitshowy as advertised
We're playing SRB2K next SNS and WNW. Here's the SNS schedule for February. >5th: Malefactors survival, megawad to be picked>12th: Quake Champions: Doom Edition (Survival, deathmatch, AND invasion)>19th: D4T survival>26th: SRB2K
Finally a douk sprite project that doesnt look like shit and it looks like SOMETHINGG 3DR would do in the early 2000'shttps://www.moddb.com/mods/duke-nukem-3hd/news/duke-nukem-3hd-fatality-editionUnironically Build supports High definition but Everyone wanted 3d.
>>95944743D with these games is usually blehsome of these textures look really decent except for the red carpet.i wonder how these look with palette emulation
Why does soft sector lighting always look like shit in Software mode? I don't like doing hard contrast shadows.
saw this at an antique store today for $25 complete in boxworth the pick up?
>>9594546dude that looks awesome, buy it.
>>9594546Well, if you want to edit your maps like it's 1996.
Sketched a lil caco today.Suck balls at drawing but I'll hopefully become better the more I do it.
Updated rules for A Serious Case of /vr/:>Map must be made for Serious Sam The Second Encounter 1.07 version (this is the most up to date retail version you get from Steam/GOG)>Usage of custom textures, sounds, and music is approved and encourged>Usage of custom entities or other mods is NOT allowed. Outside of textures, sounds, and music your map should be 100% vanilla with 1.07>Please provide a readme listing your name (even if it's anonymous), map name, and sources for any custom content used>Map must be beatable (duh) and have proper co-op support>Do not make edits of existing maps>Project host has the final say and can deny your entry if it is not up to /vr/ """standards""" (please put some effort into your map)Tips:>Trigger a checkpoint whenever a new weapon is picked up to ensure everyone spawns with an "up-to-date" arsenal>Make co-op portals for arenas that get closed off (and one-way doors for any closed off rooms/secrets so players don't get trapped)>Aim to balance your map around Serious difficulty first, but don't be afraid to make support for other difficulties afterwards>Also keep co-op in mind when balancing encounters, drawn out reinforcement spawners are not fun to wait on>Hot Starts are not that common in Serious Sam, try making a "lobby" room for players to jump around in without risk of triggering anything (useful for co-op)>A good fight is more enjoyable than a good looking room, don't stress yourself out over brushwork>Use the official maps as references (I won't berate you for coping models, texture work, etc. from official maps) (You can have multiple maps opened at once and switch between them in the editor)>Don't forget to make a thumbnail for your level>Get creative with secrets!Any other comments or suggestions? I will officially start this next weekend but anyone who's interested can start now if they want.
>>9594546Bro, think of all the radical maps you'd be able to make with that.
>>9594546I pick up shovelware compilations from thrift shops and used book stores whenever I see them, they're a fun time capsule to explore.
>>9594474>smeary ai upscale>not shit
>>9594626someone was uploading those at Moddb a while ago, one even had a working installer for worldcraft that works on win10+>>9594652/v/ is over there fagquad.
>>9594221Would it be possible to fix this in teh code somehow?I just want to see exceptionally large maps some day or even some weird "world" generator where you can roam a basically infinite Doom level that just keeps generating in front of you.
>>9594654>/v/ is over thereWhere sloppy upscaled trash belongs.
>>9594654AI upscaling usually looks pretty bad, Anon. You can't tell someone to go to /v/ just because you don't like what they said. I could understand if he was acting like a complete ass, but that really isn't the case here.
>>9593889probably not the largest in scale but Lainos' city maps are truly impressive and especially cool to see it grow over the years. Sacrament map 02 titled 'Doxylamine Moon', then a single map (technically two) Doxylamine Moon: Overdose is a sequel of sorts to that and expanded on, Comatose takes it to the next level and in some respects it's logical conclusion. Lilium, his most recent work, is very large, and impressive in its own right, but it does feel like he pulled back just a bit. I think each of these maps are 50 minutes minimum on your first playthrough.
>>9594659My non-technical assumption is that a hack generator that doesn't unload data from memory (and runs for as long as you have free RAM) is probably possible. But the root of the problem is not technical: how do you automatically generate areas that don't suck? Solve that, and someone will probably make an engine to test it.
somewhere in the heavens... they are racingEarly WIP, but it's looking pretty consistent on animated turnaround.
>>9594801I'll post mine too. It's also extremely early in development.
>>9594164ass #69 attracted nearly every mapper in the community, unsurprisingly. of the three megawads there's about four or five decent maps and unfortunately about 50 killbox slaughtermaps.
>>9593849After over two years in development, it's finally done: Temporal Tantrum is now publicly released! A very big thank you to the rest of the team, and to everyone who tested earlier versions.Trailer: https://youtu.be/OUHOZP0leOc Download v1.0: https://drive.google.com/file/d/173LIrlNTmLkITjuwfqyzvuSsGUxXuAIV/Temporal Tantrum is 28 new maps across seven themed episodes. You need a port supporting UMAPINFO and MBF21.Note that this contains some fixes since RC1 - please redownload if you already have RC1.
>>9594419The fact that you took the time to play it is appreciated. Certain factors are still being adjusted- custom monsters need to have their damage adjusted and ammo/health placement isn’t finalized.
>>9593889I don't know if it's the largest, but Planisphere 2 is straight up Manhattan, along with parts of New Jersey, Queens, and Brooklyn. It's not to scale I think, but it's fucking huge as shit, when it was originally released it didn't even have nodes because most nodebuilders at the time couldn't even build them.
>>9594118People primarily still use MIDI for .wads, yes.>>9594474I always thought that 3D model pack with high res textures looked ungodly fucking ugly and made the game feel very cheap and unprofessional.I can't say that I think upscaled sprites like that look good, because they just really don't, it's only barely better than the 3D pack because it still looks like Duke if you squint.
>>9593848It's 2010 and I need some good PWADs to lock and load into my ZDoom 2.5, any ideas? No udmf or decorate, vanilla and boom only please.
>>9594217I am too smooth-brained to understand the intricacies of slaughtermaps. I see no appeal in running circles with BFG for half an hour through on flat arenas.
>>9594937>>9594738I didn't even know I wanted an open world/sandbox Doom game.Maybe it would be possible to make some sort of Strife-like FPS RPG using a modified engine and a really obscenely large map.
>>9594053I'll wait for that one to be finished completely before I give it a go. Apparently it's on Beta 5 at the moment.Any wads that go well with colourful hell?
>>9595179you're uv pistol starting right?
>>9594284just endedit switched to vanilla deathmatch with 20+ players for the last few hours; saw a couple of regulars pop in during the coop, maybe i should've bumped this in case anyone was still around
>>9594580Do you have some kind of a recommended guide or resource to learn how to make a Serious Sam map?
>>9595260https://rentry.org/vy4qr anon wrote himself
>>9595263Oh shit nice, thanks
>magenta spire shilled in cacowads>coming off of excellent Stardate 20xx so willing to give it a shot>it's weird as shit and not in a fun way, bunch of unintuitive puzzles and hard to see gateways to navigatewell that was disappointing
>>9595185From Sunlust onwards
>>9595179Name five best ones you wouldn't mind replaying>>9594956I guess doom mapping was dry as desert prior 2010...
>>9594546see? this proves Doom is 3D it says right on the box
>>9594478>modd>mfw no low poly thicc gf to precache
>>9595356>modddamned auto copy/paste
Man.. Strife has some of the most infuriating enemy designs I've ever seen in a shooter..
>>9595283The Cacowards tend to be the more "respected" members of the community jerking off their friends. Big surprise.
I played so much Comatose my eyes started tracking fuzzies in real life
>>9595179Trailblazer goes splendid with colourful hell
>>9595179>Any wads that go well with colourful hell?Combined Arms is amazing with it.
Are any of the Douk expansions worth playing?
>>9595530No, unless you're using Alien Armageddon.A lot of people like the beach holiday one, but I kind of hated it.
>>9593959>>9594030Basically La Tailor Girl has a lot of discovery elements on it and I hope to emphasis that for more replayabilityThe biggest issue I have is making the sprites for all three characters so Ive been focusing more on upgraded outfits so I can limit it a little bit
>>9595445Nothing rots forums like an IRC clique on the side.
>>9595556Please tell me this is a real outfit.Also, my one issue with La Tailor Girl is that upgrading is so rare. I typically find an outfit, know I won't find a copy of what I'm already wearing to upgrade it anyway and rip off the old clothes so I can dick around in the new costume.Did you do anything else with the companion mod, by the way? I tend to love having Sewie with me if I'm messing around in a heavily modded session, but the new Curly Brace style robo-girl looks fun too.
>>9595530Nuclear Winter is trash.
>>9595597It will be a real outfit, but not ready yetand I am unsure what to do with the companion mod really now that Daina has new sounds and such Havent touched it at all
>>9595618It better make guns fire condiments! I want to find that outfit when its ready and RP as that shitty Batman villain. Archviles are going to get mustard in their faces and know what the burning feels like.
>>9595530Duke Caribbean is a treasure.D.C is mediocre.Nuclear Winter is Nuclear Garbage
Powerslave Exhumed is part of a humble "best of 2022" bundle. Cheaper than the steam price, in my region. But the sale on gog is slightly better.
>>9595508>>9595519Neither of these are wads
>>9595670Sorry, I thought you wanted general recommendations.Honestly, though. Most wads will go well with colourful hell just so long as there aren't too many Cyberdemons or Archviles. I got a white level Cyberdemon in a difficult sniping location once and I had to savescum because the fucker was screaming John Romero voice lines at me and one shotting my ass with a super BFG.
>>9593848Anyone knows a PWAD that forces a different player class for each Episode?I'm working on a set of 1 level mods with distinct play styles and I'd like to release it as one Anthology-WAD/PK3 basically. Looking for a mod that does something similiar to study the ways on how to do it the best way. Thanks in advance.
>>9595556Cute and yummy outfit.
>>9594871Noice, congratulations.Why is the DW thread so weird with the first post blanked out and the release in a reply? Are you planning to later put it all with screenshots and map list in the first post or make a new thread?
>>9593867Maps of chaos is great. I daresay underrated
>>9594871Neat, I'll take a look.I can't wait for decino to use this as yet another excuse not to play Ancient Aliens!
>>9593867Do people here really count saving at all in a level "savescumming"? What about giant levels that are up to an hour long?
>>9596064Not really, nobody thinks that. It is however true that without saves experience is quite different.
>>9594546Has this one been preserved online? I know some people want to archive these things.
>>9595445Yeah, I just use it as a recap to check what major wads I missed that year. I'm no longer invested in what wins I'm just looking for an excuse to play something.
>>9595179JPCP has a lot of trippy levels that would look nice with rainbow monsters.
>>9595992There were issues in the past with people on DW being confused about which was the current version. I thought this was the simplest way to address that.
>>9596064>up to an hour long>up to
>>9596292>ah, my standard Hideous Destructor clear time for modestly large levels
>>9596114I think I got it as part of a huge shivekware archive online, but I'll have to check when I get back home. I remember seeing the name though
>>9596064>up to an hour longUnless your wad has at least one NON-slaughtershit one hour long map don't even talk to me.
>>9596352So you only play Community Chest?
>>9596331interesting, indeed for sure. Wake me up when there's a Little BigPlanet, X-Men, Transformers or Megaman X Doom, Strife, or Quake TC.
>>9596135There are a few names that are always worth checking out regardless.
Am I wrong for preferring short maps? Give me something bite-sized that I can complete in 10 minutes. It takes a very special map to remain enjoyable for more than half an hour. Pacing in such a large level is difficult.
>>9596371he only plays the iwads just based off his usage of "slaughtershit"
>>9595167Mee too. If I see more than 400 monsters in a map I skip it.
>>9596494I play everything, but I will always enjoy an hour of switch hunting more than an hour of >>9595167, not that anon btw desu
what happened to that anon making a turok mod?how many turok mods exist in total?
E2M2 of Unrattled. Blind playthroughs starting with this map.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vxkzn4rLz10
>>9596327What's a shivekware? Is that Russian or something?
>>9596064The classic FPS community can be really fucking obnoxious. There are people who will scathingly critique a map because the secrets weren't visible enough, or that the level necessitated saves, as if failure states aren't fucking intrinsic to video games or 100%ing a video game doesn't take work. A bunch of 40 year old babies.
>>9596556then you must know that "running circles with BFG for half an hour through on flat arenas" is not your ordinary slaughter. if it's exactly as that guy explained then it's simply lazy slaughter whose only purpose is to BFG spam. most slaughter may look that way to untrained eyes, but there's much more to it than that. to even claim that's all it is is reductive at best and dishonest at worst. even stuff like the recent Junkfood wad which can be egregious at times requires a lot of skill and routing because we're still playing Doom and that means resource management and dodging projectiles/movement.
>>9596920Thanks for playing. I'm glad you had fun.
Shotgun Frenzy anyone?
>>9596920>grab a soulsphere to get to 200>still eat up the rest of the health potions
>>9594217>>9594181I'd only play these with Russian Overkill
>Mod offers several weapon sets or enemiesyou do keep track of your favorite ones to not have to recheck the entire mod every time you boot it up,right?
>>9597247For monster mods, I just let whatever settings are saved to my .ini handle this, and I don't play that many weapon mods with distinct classes, so I just remember which are my favorites.
>>9596114Man, it was on search away.https://archive.org/details/3dGameAlchemyhttps://archive.org/details/3-d-game-alchemy-for-doom-doom-ii-heretic-and-hexen> showing a disc ISO file into a CBZ of book scansNow that's radical.
>>9595445For starters>2022 was a shitty year, i couldn't think 10 good wads myself and even less 20 or 42>most cacoward writers have been changed from the infamous year 2020>maker of magenta spire is literal nobody with no connections to cacowards writersMagenta Spire probably got the artsy award such as Lilith at 2017. Didn't like the wad neither, but 2022 awards being a circlejerk is outright false. Many gold and silver awards to newcomers and even for /vr/ members. Chris Lutz's Gzdoom epic and tourniquet's and bemused's Occula (the color-coded slaughter epusode) didn't even receive even silver, even though both were actually good and by well known mapping veterans with connections.Also can anybody actually mention a wad that deserved gold or silver wad this year, but didn't get one? For me it's Occula, and if it received one, some people would complain, that another color-coded slaughtershit wad by familiar names got award again. It seems when it's shitty wad year, people complain about cacowards and expect the writers to pull lot of good wads out of their asses.
>>9597632>/vr/ members>sWas there more than punch?
>>9597664Lunch*Solar Struggle got a silver caco and Doom 64 Ethereal Breakdown was listed in 22 more for 2022.
>>9597664ViolentBeetle (silver) and lunchlunch (gold)
This pfhucker is coming along nicely.
>>9597774Damn that's excellent
>>9597774I wish I could say the same.
>>9597783Seems like your biggest issue is linework and anatomy.It's a bit more effort, and some of that effort will be covered up, but I'm working in separate head, body, and arms layers.It helps with getting the anatomy/form right, and has saved me a lot of trouble when I went to shade compared to Oshare.
>>9597807Thanks for the advice. This guy's gonna need a big rework, I reckon.
>>9597783Hey, at least it looks more promising than a lot of stuff I've seen in the forums.
>>9597889Well, that's not a high bar to reach. I've already scrapped the current sheet and am going to try again from scratch with anon's tips in mind, because I'm not gonna settle for just-acceptable sprites.>Look up Parias Hexen for reference art>See this
>>9597907Also, this.I'll just ask for Parias art here instead.
>>9597664Cheesewheel made maps for 200 mins of /vr/, not sure if he is around here anymore but eh.
>>9596331when i was playing through alice and posting about it in these threads, i was also thinking up ways to turn it into a doom mod....i don't have anything to do with this in particular, but i'm going to pretend that helped anyway :)
>>9597247I keep separate .inis for all of my mods in their own folders and copy them over when I want to switch. So, yeah.
>>9596931I think that secrets should be possible to figure out somehow, and ideally the author of the map should be able to beat his own level without having to resort to saving (barring the level being fucking gigantic and long). To me, savescumming isn't just the use of the save function though, it's excessive or cheap exploiting of saving and loading.
>>9597632>>most cacoward writers have been changed from the infamous year 2020What happened in 2020 to the Doom community? Surely covid wasn't the reason.
>>9598245>To me, savescumming isn't just the use of the save function though, it's excessive or cheap exploiting of saving and loading.This. I'm not very good at Doom due to playing it on and off constantly, so I'll save a small number of times per level because redoing the same maps over and over would drive me insane. Hammering quicksave in the middle of a fight and reloading if something goes wrong is savescumming. The people who call basic mid level saves "savescum" are genuinely retarded.
>>9596931>level necessitated savesA level that "necessitate" saves is probably not very good. It either contains heavy RNG elements out of player's control (Like opening a swarm of chaingunners in your face that may kill you or barely damage it based off the rolls) or heavy discrepancy in results based off foreknowledge (Like opening a swarm of chaingunners in your back that can be destroyed by a single rocket if you remember to walk backwards). Or just plain trial-and-error.
Completing the level without dying has never been some kind of requirement. Practical jokes like tactically placed spike or ledge or monster that helps you explode when shooting your rockets are also a part of the level.
>>9598358Serious Sam gives you more points for not saving or dying.
>>9597632>that another color-coded slaughtershit wad by familiar names got award againName?
Well for a bfg i think i have done a good job balancing it out.
>>9598389No idea what this is, but I love it.
>>9598294>Hammering quicksave in the middle of a fight and reloading if something goes wrong is savescumming.I do this. But I'll also quicksave after finishing a fight with next to no health or ammo, too.Sometimes I quicksave so much that I find myself saving just before inevitable death. Like with a rocket flying at me that is impossible to dodge.
>>9598396I'm remaking my old Mod stickguy in doom to be a lot more better.currently i need to finish to fix the pickup sprite for the bfg and work on the Chainsaw, but afterwards it should be ready for the first release.
>>9598378Oh i assumed anon meant another one seeing as Ocucla has been mentioned several times
>reasonably challenging but not full ballbuster>no bullshit puzzles or excess platforming>reasonable kill count without going full blown slaughterwad numbersany wad recommendations that are similar to scythe 2?
>>9598495Eviternity is comparable but much easier on the whole
Anybody got suggestions for movie/TV inspired anti-demon guns/weapons?So far I got the brass knuckles and the shotgun/flamethrower from Constantine, Ash's side-by-side from Evil Dead, and the Colt from supernatural.
>>9598651Can't find a good picture, but Phantasm series had a quadruple-barrel shotgun.
>>9598669thanksProblem is, so far I'm pretty much only turning up shotguns, or revolvers/hybrids, like the gun in Drive Angry. Maybe I'll make the shotgun from Constantine into a Flamethrower/dragons breath type gun.
Will we ever see 94 protons finished?Maybe cut the ambitions a bit if you can't finish them.
I'm trying to understand ACS, it's an interpreted language, which I getso, is this sort of like running a VM on top of the game? It makes modding easier in the same way that something like Little Big Planet 2 makes modding easier right? By implementing an entire morphable game engine inside the game itself?By having it interpreted, you're avoiding a lot of compatibility issues, no? No compilation, just port the engine/interpreter and that mod will run on every platform, kind of like MonoGame?
>>9598707The update that was promised "this weekend" a month ago will be here any day now.
>>9598289Akeldama got ignored on awards, and very large number of cacowards were given to mediocre single slaughter maps for gzdoom made by Doomworld mods. The two members which were most quilty of this were not cacoward writers at 2022 anymore.
I'm 27 and doom finally clicked for me
>>9598651>>9598673>>9598669Okay, found something for you, from End of Days. Maybe not as iconic, but still.
>>9596135These last two Cacoawards lately have a section titled 21/22 more for 2021/2022 which lists off other wads that dropped in the corresponding year but didn’t win any awards. For once, I think it’s a good idea to have a list to show off what dropped this year for those wanting to hunt down more wads to play instead of the circle-jerk awards, everybody deserves a chance on the spotlight. On the other hand, this would make the runner-up award null and void b/c really what’s the point of having that non-award if it’s essentially like the list of wads. Cacoawards should be redone imo, and a good analogy for what ig I’m trying to explain is that maybe it should be less like the oscars and more like a film festival.
>>9599123Thanks, it'll fit in nicely. Is the movie any good?
>>9599157No idea, I didn't actually watch it.
>>9599148what is this from?
>>9599157Meh, it's not awful, but not great either.
>>9598817Is Chopblock ded?
>>9599237He messaged me like a week ago, but nothing about 94p was shared.
>>9595530>any of the Duke expansions worth playing?The major ones by Sunstorm, sure.>Duke it Out in D.C It's... alright, but some of the levels feel like they went for more "authentic real life location" than a fun level ?? The expansion is also very flavorless, I was hoping for more wild stuff or enemy reskins, like FBI / Secret Service Pig Cops etc but nah.>Nuclear Winter It's kinda funny. It's got some dumb ass segments and two of it's first maps are straight recycled from regular Duke 3d but it's got a custom opening and ending cinematics and it has custom enemies made specifically for it's thematic. >Duke in the CaribbeanVery soulful and faithful to it's Caribbean resort theme with custom enemies, bikini babes and whatnot. The later levels (aka the caves) are very hit and miss but overall it's kind of a fun romp.Haven't played Duke Zone etc those.
>>9598707I've been trimming some of them, working on some others. Apologies again for delay.>>9599237Not yet.>>9599239I did?
>>9599303Call me when you ded, I can probably finish wad for you.You should probably bundle decohack with the project in case someone might need to manage custom items.
>>9599314The Decorate code wouldn't be that different, but I guess I could include the DecoHack code just because, it'd just be some bytes. Some people could maybe learn something from it I suppose.
>>9599303Yeah. Asking about Mozz
>>9599339Oh right. Hope he's doing well.
>>9598651The railgun from Eraser, of which multiple vidya railguns were inspired by
>>9599369wait you specified anti-demon, Hellboy had a movie so it counts, right? His big ass revolver
>>9599369>railgun from EraserIt was so much cooler than most videogame railguns. Quake 2&3 were and continue being a mistake
>>9599373>>9598651Speaking of Hellboy, it had flamethrowers that some of the BPRD agents used (or, rather, failed to use).
>>9598651Proton packs from GhostbustersM.I.B.'s cool chrome gunsThe arsenal from Phantom 2040Every Tokusatsu weapon ever.
>>9599739okay admittedly Phantom 2040's arsenal is anti-robot, and M.I.B.'s weapons are anti-aliens. But we call Archviles martians so it's fine.
Ive amended the suggestions given to me by a kind Anon from a few threads back and I'm now making a new map. Im calling this one Abscess - I plan on it being much, much larger than the last one but featuring the same motif as the last.
>>9599754Some fun set pieces here
>>9599754>>9599759Lots of good verticality
>>9599754keep it up anon! as a fellow first time mapper I salute you. saw your progress in the other thread and it looks really good even if that kind of map isn't really my cup of tea. godspeed
>>9598651Not necessarily anti-demon, but James Woods' flesh pistol at the end of Videodrome would make for a rad Hell weapon.
>>9599767Thanks AnonThis second map is going to focus more on exploration rather than constantly pressuring the player. Still gunna have big fights but I want to break it up with some quieter moments and nice scenery.
>>9599739>M.I.B.'s cool chrome gunsThe Cricket actually would be a great BFG replacement.
>>9599849The Cricket would be a Rocket Launcher replacement. The BFG in Men in Black are the guns they shoot down the ship with at the end of the movie.

>>9598297Very agreeable post
>>9600891Not in the least.
>>9598297There was someone here awhile ago saying deaths are just a quick “DSDA rewind”. I wouldn’t want to play maps from someone like that.
>>9600905You don't find it foolish to believe you should be able to beat a map without dying the very first time you play it? That's a dreadfully boring map.
>>9600907>map that’s too easy>map that’s too cheapYeah they’re both boring, two different extremes.
>>9600913Who said anything about being cheap? Foreknowledge isn't always about knowing cheapness, it's understanding the map you've been playing. Saving is just a buffer to you not dying and starting again.
>>9600916>Who said anything about being cheap?Me >>9600905I wouldn’t likely enjoy a map from someone who thinks Doom’s first episode is the peak of difficulty anymore than someone who thinks quicksaving every five seconds is a preferable way to play.
>>9600920Who said anything about quicksaving every five seconds being a preferable way to play? This whole chain started because someone said some map reviewers are dumb because they have preconceptions about secrets being too visible or not and maps being hard enough to warrant a save. Nothing about cheapness, nothing about quicksaving every five seconds.
>>9600928>Who said anything about quicksaving every five seconds being a preferable way to play?The anon I mentioned in that post, as that’s basically what the “rewind” feature amounts to. Any death was considered just a rewind with no consequence or wait, like savestating during bossfights.
Anyone has link for closed Heretic episode Endquest ?
>>9598297>heavy discrepancy in results based off foreknowledge (Like opening a swarm of chaingunners in your back that can be destroyed by a single rocket if you remember to walk backwards)I think the best levels should fucking rape the unprepared but should be doable in one run without savestates for those who learn the map and formulate good routes, strategies and tactics to beat them. I think levels like these are the most rewarding to beat.
>>9599735>>9599373>Hellboy filmswhat about The Baby?
>>9599270>>9595648>>9595540A remake of DiOiD.C. utilizing all features of Atomic Edition and Alien Armageddon would be beyond awesome
>>9600437>I wonder how many people have gotten worn out from having to click so much to swing Blaz's sword?After the newest version, not as much as I used to. I've either gotten better or it feels better now.
>>9601119Well I'm going to take it a step further soon. I'm gonna make the sword attacks autofire, and shorten the combo to three attacks rather than four. So you'll hold the button down and constantly swipe left and right, and when you let go you'll finish with the stab, which'll have +FORCEPAIN and boosted knockback.Sword throws are gonna be moved to the reload key. I need to get around to making a little diagram like I did with Kustam here for Blaz.Doomslayer's gonna be getting some changes too, one of the things I need to figure out is what kinda weapon I want to give him to start with, the sword alone isn't enough. I've been considering just letting him start with the Mourning Star Shotgun, but then the question of "What the fuck does the shotgun pickup give him then?" puts my balls in a vice. Plus I'm considering removing the sword as a selectable weapon for him.
>>9600282>>9600184https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ol624uUJ_PIThis Japanese attempt at making an FPS game is absolutely hilarious. >dungeon crawler-style movement>girl jumping out of the screen for melee attack>fucking SPRITE WALLSThat being said, I don't understand why boomer shooters are so averse to fanservice, aside from Hedon and Citdel I can't think of a situation where the game wouldn't be improved with the addition of a gratuitous sideboob.

MIB stuff could be fun but I don't know if it fits the ambience. Phantom 2040 I don't know, I'll check it out, same with Tokusatsu.>>9599735Flamethrower is fun, that'll find its way in.>>9599369That's now on the list, long range quasi-hitscanner.
>>9600697Check the active community of players on your continent, and see on which public or private servers they hang. Niche first person shooters often have more servers than players. Joining some local chat is often the only way to have a match with high skilled player, as they rarely feel the need to go massacre the regular crowd on a regular server.

>>9601273Isn't Hellsing vampires? Looks very cool though. Very BAR meets CETME meets Boyds Anti-tank
>>9601273Just read up on it, actually based on the Mauser Anti-Tank rifle. Makes sense.
>>9601273>that ejection port placementI assume this is a slamfire weapon, and you pull the barrel past the magazine to allow it to load.
>>9601284Bolt could have a BAR-esque magazine cutout and the spring looks like one in a FAL
Is it ok to have guns that make previous ones obsolete? Or is that only allowed in doom because it's the original.
>>9601285It's not the magazine that makes me skeptical (you can pull a cartridge back and out like a Mars or Bobert), it's the complete lack of space in the back of the receiver for the bolt to go. There's a big-ass cross-pin of some sort (probably a screw) above and behind the pistol grip, so it can't retract into the stock. If you make it a tiny little plate that's just firing pin and locking lugs it's not big enough to cover the ejection port.
>>9601292I'd say the only case of that in Doom is the pistol. Personally I think it's not wrong if the weapons that are made obsolete are given some time to shine, Serious Sam does that very well.
>>9601294I got that, I think it's a very flat "disk" that's just the extractor and firing pin, and the bolt goes below and locks into the reciever.I'll sketch something.>>9601303Ok, thanks.
>>9601292You can, but i recommend always to give them some niche uses, Like what if the doom pistol had the unique mechanic of instantly killing a type of enemy that many other type of weapons take an eternity to kill, or make them be able to trigger trap switches that usually can only be activated by the enemies.just to throw some ideas around.
>>9595445>>9598848>>9599135Recommend me something good that's been ignored by the Cacowards, there's got to be the same level of quality wads out there I imagine...
>>9601527Nicolas Monti won a Cacoward once in 2015, but he's since cranked out two megawads and several episodes that haven't gotten the recognition they deserve.
>map wad has custom enemies/weaponsAt least make a vanilla version like valiant and EDAY did
any Good Shit wads you could recommend that are weird but still unquestionably doom at its core? like Void etc
>>9601156I've wondered what game this was for almost 2 years after seeing a WEBM of it and that one PSX game that's basicly Wizardry with guns for spells
>>9601105I wish Duke It Out in D.C had more "flavor" to it. People shit on the 20th Anniversary World Tour but it's pretty neat that every level has it's own "theme" and custom art etc.But I also think that dividing a theme into it's own "sub-game" because then you can have expansion-specific re-skins of the enemies etc. Would've loved to get like FBI pig cops in Duke it Out in DC etc. Something built along a general theme, like Redneck Rampage Rides Again and it's "road trip" nature across the southern states, maybe something like that for Duke that takes him through a good few stereotypified cities.Ideally I would also want to see a Duke x Ion Fury crossover since Duke and Shelly were meant to be a pair...

>>9601156This is really cute. Terrible as an FPS from the looks of things, but at least it has the right spirit. I don't know why Japan can make great third person shooters but not FPS games. Hell, I remember an interview with the FF7: Dirge of Cerberus director saying his piece of shit was inspired by Half Life somehow.>>9601292>>9601303Yeah, only the pistol becomes obsolete. Some new players think the SSG makes the regular shotgun worthless, but this isn't true due to the shotguns range and efficiency in dealing with weak lone targets.
>>9602378These are unironically fun.
>>9601284Maybe. Possibly it's something where the bolt doesn't travel back and forth, but rather it rotates or moves up and down (though there's not much space in there for that either).Or Hirano doesn't know that much about guns and didn't think about where the bolt would have to go. If you look at Alucard's guns, there seems to be no indication of any kind of locking, the barrels don't move at all, almost like they would be gigantic blowback pistols, feasibly some sort of delayed blowback, but that's never stated or made obvious anywhere.Hellsing isn't a particularly grounded series, so it's not exactly important.

There used to be a bug where if you died while charging the laser rifle that you wouldn't be able to respawn/restart and it took me forever to figure out.

>>9600907I don't think you should expect to be able to beat anything without dying on the first try, but I think that if the author seriously were to balance their gameplay around "I'll just rewind the encounter and try it again." or "I'll just reload my save from before the encounter and try again." and plain expects the player to do the same, they are extremely unlikely to have put much thought into how said encounter is actually structured.The author is expecting that you'll never face any real consequences for failing, which doesn't feel like particularly engaging design. There's not going to be much thought put into the encounter, there's no approach or strategy to figure out, you just do it again until it works out, at best it's passable by luck on author's thoughtless and slapdash implementation, at worst it's pure RNG.I get if a map is an hour or two long, that you'd do a save around the middle or so, but most levels aren't, so I don't think it's much to ask that the author can claim in good conscience that they beat their own level in one go, if they know their map they should be able to do that. See it as an insurance of quality.
>>9603556Why do they have dicks hanging out of their mouths?
>>9603979To shoot their hot load of bullets right at the player's face.
>>9595171I'm kind of hoping that's what that Fallout one that was teased last year is doing

>>9604127>EternalDoes it even have wads made in it except for Heartland?
>I need to remember this gun is way too slow for close-quarters combat, too bad every Nailgun got replaced by it (BTW am I reading the patchnotes wrong, or is the normal ammo's mode fully-charged supposed to be essentially a laser-shotgun in the future?)Also any idea what's the cause of the player being unable to use any weapons after saving/loading game unless he first starts walking for a whole second?
>>9604135>EternalWhat? You mean the Eternity engine?
>>9604149>is the normal ammo's mode fully-charged supposed to be essentially a laser-shotgunHold secondary attack.>Also any idea what's the cause of the player being unable to use any weapons after saving/loading game unless he first starts walking for a whole second?First time hearing of this... What engine are you using?
>>9601292There's some subjectivity to it, but I feel that it's better if each weapon has its role. One option is if you're looking at replaceable weapons in slots, then you have lots of leeway.
in my gog library, wolf3d and sod are showing up as new.. anyone knows what's happening?
>>9604163QuakespasmSpiked - I also encountered this a few times on Mark5 in other mods, but this is the first time QsS behaved in a simillar manner on me honestlyAlso is the Multi-Prox supposed to behave like a "sentry turret mortar" when not set to remote-detonation?>alt-attackImpulse name?I jump with RMB
>>9604268>QuakespasmSpikedI haven't done much QSS testing since it seems everyone moved on to vkQuake or Ironwail. I guess make sure your sv_protocol is set to fte999 and see if that fixes it.>Also is the Multi-Prox supposed to behave like a "sentry turret mortar" when not set to remote-detonation?Yes.>Impulse name?Should be using the alias +secondary that is set in VR's quake.rc file.
>>9601292Depends on the context. If the weaponset is intended for something like a fully continuous playthrough of a 32 level megawad, I’d want the weapons balanced as much as possible. I’m fine with Doom/2’s weapon imbalances because I’m either pistol starting it or having things reset through episodes/icon of sin death exits.
>>9595171>>9593889some guy copied the gta 2 map into doom
I remember someone saying "what's the Doom equivalent to Arcane Dimensions" and wonder if Supercharge is close enoughBut also, what is the Quake equivalent to Realm667?
>>9604295That explains alot then, I was worried its some unintentional behaviour
What's the best source port for ROTT? And what's the best source port for multiplayer?
>>9604668rottexpr i think is the least bad one right now, but there's an official remaster port comingi don't think any of the existing ports even bother with multiplayer support, they're barely even functional for the singleplayer
>>9604684that's what I'm finding but it's doing this weird thing where it forces me to stare at the ground and won't let me look up
>>9604692it's honestly probably a better experience to just run the original in a well-configured dosbox
>>9604490>>9604268. . .so now that I've tested the alt-firemodes on all the guns having one, I'll need to report that ProxLauncher can be cheesed for infinite explosion traps - because you can restart the remote trap's detonation, as long as you keep clicking the "+secondary" key before the initial explosion's sprite animation hasn't completed yet - also I can't activate the PlasmaRail zoom despite it being an QsS-exclusive feature allegedly... BW, where did the rocket-jump physics gone to? >I restarted the game after a reboot, now that peculiar "forced pacifism moment" after save/load doesn't occur for the meantime
>>9604712and funnily enough, doing the same with the multi-prox ammo only makes an 'infinite explosion' that's purely harmless (after the initial "pineapple shower") - it doesn't even provide any illumination or particles while playing
>>9604712>I'll need to report that ProxLauncher can be cheesed for infinite explosion trapsAh... that certainly seems to be an issue. I'll get right on it.>I can't activate the PlasmaRail zoom despite it being an QsS-exclusive feature allegedly...I removed the railgun zoom for various reasons and have yet to replace it - biggest reasons being that most people either have a custom FOV zoom bind or use the built-in zoom bind in vkQuake and (I think?) Ironwail. It's not in the changelog because... well, I haven't bothered updating the changelog in a few months now. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯>BW, where did the rocket-jump physics gone to?I'm not sure what you mean. Rocketing jumping seems normal to me.
>>9604724I get no boost from my own explosions, but the Ogres' grenades or Vore-pods provide extra lift as usual
On the topic of VR2, I've got some bars with a wait time of -1 that come down after the player goes through a trigger, and there's a button further down the way that's linked to reopen them, except that pressing the button does nothing. Is toggling like this not supported or is there something else I should be doing?
>>9604727Works fine for me. Occasionally map geometry will nullify player velocity changes from explosions, but that's a vanilla issue. Try different maps or a different engine.>>9604743I don't think you need a wait key. Just using the toggle spawnflag should work fine, assuming this is a func_door and not a train or something.
>>9604775Well that must've been it since that was a megamap done with BSP2 (had to cut it short cause the level-exit cinematic failed to trigger in VR, will check later if AD also has the same problem with it), as now that I'm back at the startmap to change mutator settings a bit more everything's back to normal again >After going thru the entirety of BB without a Shogtun because of axe-start (and almost the same deal with the Nailguns thanks to an unlucky shuffle), I would suggest to make the regular shotty pickup weapon "weight favourably" in case of it shuffling in place of a SuperShotgun item placement on custom maps not often enough to guarantee obtaining one - or maybe just make it a rare drop from Grunts if the Axe-only start is enabled?Another thing I am not sure if it's already a thing - is it possible to have weapons placed on maps (and make them shuffled by randomizer too) be loaded with alternate ammotypes instead of normal ammunition?
>>9604836>I would suggest to make the regular shotty pickup weapon "weight favourably" in case of it shuffling in place of a SuperShotgun item placement on custom maps not often enough to guarantee obtaining oneSure, I need to do another pass on the randomizers anyway.>is it possible to have weapons placed on maps (and make them shuffled by randomizer too) be loaded with alternate ammotypes instead of normal ammunition?I suppose it would be, but you can already achieve the same effect with backpacks since they can give weapons also. Which reminds me... I need to add fire shells to backpack flags.
>>9601527Good Morning Phobos, Super MAYhem ‘17, all of the /vr/ megawads from you Doomfags (except 100 + 200 min of /vr/, sorry but those were mediocre), Doomer Boards Projects, and Hellevator.
love that part in dissolution of eternity where if you shoot the jesus portrait, you get shocked and a text saying "do not defy god"also, just remembered wolfenstein had a character called barnacle wilhelm which sounds like a spongebob character
>>9604845>Sure, I need to do another pass on the randomizers anyway.It needs some reworking to stop replacing decorations with random modelsI totally forgot about scavenged weapons drop chance already existing
>>9604929>It needs some reworking to stop replacing decorations with random modelsWhat decorations? The randomizers don't touch anything other than items that the player can pick up.
>>9604910I think that trap was also in SoA - if it's that one located in an "anti-church" then I know a strange trick about it:>shoot a nail/rocket at the crucified Jesus texture>hide before your projectile hits the hidden trigger>if you made a monster ambush spawn aside the pews by picking the key before doing the above steps, they will now suffer God's wrath instead of youApparently this trap targets the nearest living entity once the player is not within reach
>>9604910>love that part in dissolution of eternity where if you shoot the jesus portrait, you get shocked and a text saying "do not defy god"I wonder if that came from those devs independently, or if it's based on the story about the Jesus figure in the original Quake.>be Sandy>be 100% mormon>go and work on some action adventure games where you go to evil places and fight evil creatures>don't take any issues with the satanic or occult imagery, because it represents the badguys who the player fights against, Satan/Shub Niggurath is unambiguously evil>don't take any issues with the graphic violence because it's just cartoons, also love all kinds of different horror movies, including a lot of really lowbrow and/or violent ones>"Hey Sandy, is it ok if we put Jesus on the walls in Quake?">"Jesus? Sure, I love Jesus!">Romero once uses the head cropped from that for a floor switch>asked if he can change it to something else>sureAnd that's the only moral objection he ever had on any of the content in the games which he worked on at iD. The question is if the guy who made that level in Dissolution Of Eternity had heard about that story somehow, and was riffing off of that, or if he was just religious himself and came to that conclusion. Either is funny.
Little bit of progress made on this new map. Added some new set pieces and did a lot of cleaning up, (textures, scale, etc. which is all going to have to be redone in the future because I havnt added monsters yet and when I do it will change some of the spaces again).
>>9605268Im doing this now because adding some visual detail now helps the aesthetic reasoning when making the rest of the map. By the way, I love checkerboards so much lads.
>>9605274I like to think the glowing red rock exposed in the wall is some incredible horror core that induces hysterical madness and pain upon any human that lays eyes on it. Who knows what alien purpose it has...
>>9605286I like your imagination.
>>9605286>>9605289Now I wonder, is it possible to make some kind of semi-transparent middle texture to put another texture behind it?
>>9605286Rough out of the lowerable bulwark to the third major area.
>>9605296Boom and MBF21 lets you apply translucency to midtextures.
>>9605308So, for example, it's possible to make this >>9605286 red rock semi-transparent, put few sidedefs inside of it, and put some sick textures with incomprehensible man-made horrors on those inner siddefs? Can I also make this texture scrolling while we're at it?Why have I never seen something like this? Would be sick as hell, obscuring scary things makes them x10 scarier.
>>9605321you probably can, as linedef action 260 makes textures translucent, and 48 & 85 scrolls textures left and right, at least in Boom format
>>9605321I'm not sure what you envision as incomprehensible man-made horrors, but sure. If it's at least Boom.There's a line type to be transparent - in the same menu as switches and whatnot, it will make the mid texture on two-sided linedef transparent (And only it). So you'd need to make this block a sector.If you want it to still be solid, you can use create fake floor/ceiling to make it appear different from what it is. Considering you already have low roof, it will be very convenient to work with midtextures through the raised sector.
Map for Heretic, it's like exploration based Doom 1 with ammo/item management.
>>9605286>horror coreIf this isn't already a map name, it should be.>>9605321>Why have I never seen something like this? Would be sick as hell, obscuring scary things makes them x10 scarier.Perhaps someone else has had the idea, but never fully realized or shared it.Perhaps it's time for you to be the person to do so, anon.
>>9604961 Something fucky is happening whenever I use the random items mutator - the decorative models get affected by it just as well, those were supposed to be torches I have shown this happening once before in RASTR.bsp
>>9605345Post your map, if you're so great.
>>9605321something like this?
>>9605372It's really like I'm in a David Cronenberg film
>>9605345I'd love a Heretic /vr/ project some day
>>9605352>If this isn't already a map name, it should be.It could be an homage to 64's Terror Core.>>9605372>>9605379I'm getting Ghostbusters 2 ooze vibes.
>>9605372Bingo. Except I would make the outer texture much less transparent so the inner texture is barely visible.
>>9605397Is this sky or 3d floor?
>>9605398Boom doesn't do degrees of transparency, but I suppose you can stack a few layers together.
>>9605390An attempt was made. The project died when the leader went ghost and nobody had the balls to take his place.https://archive.org/details/vrhereticMaybe we would have more success if we had a better, actually dedicated leader. It could be you, even.
>>9605390What does heretic maps run on? Because gzDoom hates me and I don't like it much either.
>>9605372That is pretty sick
>>9605421There's Crispy Heretic, and I think DSDA-Doom is compatible. (I heard a rumor that they both might be getting Heretic updates in the near future.)And I'm just now learning that International Heretic is apparently another limit-removing source port, too, but I don't know shit about it, or International Doom for that matter.
>>9605363Working on it, but speaking on the side, whether if it's actually map of yours: I'd consider that cp last place worth contributing to, you people are as good as your wrongdoers portrayal.
>>9605361>I have shown this happening once before in RASTR.bspAh... I remember now. I couldn't replicate the issue that time either, and I don't think anyone else has reported it.How are you launching your game? Straight into VR or using the console 'game' command?Because the only thing I can think of causing such an issue is model indices precached in id1 are somehow transfering to VR, but even that doesn't make much sense.
>>9605470>if it's actually map of yoursIt's not, I just grabbed it randomly from that thread. But you spoiler made me chuckle.>picLookin' pretty nice so far, anon. Keep at it.
>>9605494You can't be too much cautious with drama-prone forum dwellers, that's all.>Lookin' pretty nice so far, anon. Keep at it.Thank you, I'll do my best.
>>9605476 I havent thought of making a VR shortcut until now 2bh - will check tomorrow if it solves this problem >PlasmaRailgun Commadnos being able to rail the player 3 times as fast as my own railgun can shoot is a bit of an overkill I must say...is turning into multi-weapon enemies (like the buffed Grunts from venerable Neharha) feasable at this point?
>>9605554>is turning into multi-weapon enemies (like the buffed Grunts from venerable Neharha) feasable at this point?With my autistic spaghetti code on top of PD's general ridgedness... I'd rather not.
>>9604183you've switched timelines again...
>>9604183they removed the mission packs (that you bought)
>>9605407You can adjust all transparencies in options, can't you? That's not a useful solution though, I guess maybe we could hope for maybe an adjustable translucency effect in MBF21 or whatever replaces it some day.

"No rest for the living" any good? or its bad like "The master levels"?
>>9607386It's the opposite in quality of the Master Levels. it's real fucking good and I wish it were longer.
>>9607387>>9607390alright,guess its the next wad i will tackle
>>9607386NRFTL is a quality episode.
Recently found this in the Quakestatic FTP - did this guy got fully transplated into Quake1 for reals, or is this just some aborted experiment?
Honestly, NRFTL is the best classic style Doom 2 mapset I've played. The authors didn't use community tropes, and that helped either. I recommend Redemption of the Slain (updated version) too, but it needs GZDoom.
>>9607474>Redemption of the Slain, classic style>The map uses various scripted sequences with music changes, lockdown fights, and other GZDoom specific features like earthquakes, swimming, jumping and crouching.>The map is designed with Brutal Doom in mind
>>9607549guess thats not classic at all,uh

I cant prove it, but I made this image. I went into GIMP and made it when I was probably 17 for a Facepunch thread about the "I love to" meme.

>>9608463>I wanted to complain about an annoying anomaly regarding the LaserCannon fudging up the weapons cycling hierarchy when it runs out of cells to shoot, but apparently its something intentional for now so whateverEhh... if pic is related then that's not supposed to be a weapon state you can get to.

Also I think there was a /vr/ specific server that shut down a while ago, and I can't remember what platform they moved to. Anyone know what I'm talking about and where they went? IIRC it was some burgeoning Discord alternative.
>>9608534>was the Prox mines nerfed in damage?No, at least not intentionally. Note that explosive damage to calculate based on distance to monster origin, NOT to the edge of their bounding box. That means damage can vary a bit depending on where you hit them.Also, if you have the Doom modifier on, ALL sources of damage have some RNG.

I love Wolf3D so much, I like it more than Doom and QuakeI can't decide if I like this or Blood moreI need more games like this
>>9608765Corridor 7 was my go to as a kid when I needed a Wolf3D fix. Apparently Rise of the Triad is similar but I never played it.
Kinda basic question, but where did the line special for raising a floor and changing a texture go in udmf?Do I have to script it or something?

If Pinkies and Spectres did exactly 100 damage per bite, are there any maps that'd straight up become impossible, or could you hypothetically wiggle your way out of everything to juke them still? Obviously fastmonsters aren't part of the equation.
>>9609536It still would be possible, but it will be TAS only in some cases.
if i want to play doom wads with a buddy, are there any special ones i should play?
>>9608678I complained a fair bit about this map but from the looks of it the author never showed up to fix it.Kind of a pity since it's not a bad map otherwise.
This is why I've not had so much time for mapping recently...
>>9609706If it makes you feel any better, that image is beautiful.
>>9608792Rise of the Triad only has a technological relation to Wolf3D, and the only part of it that really manifests in-game is the 90 degree walls. They really did as much as they possibly could to make a Doom competitor out of the Wolf3D engine. Corridor 7 is much more of an actual clone, but like almost all Wolf3D clones of the time, it sucks. It's arguably more playable than Blake Stone because they didn't remove hitstun, but that's a pitifully low bar.
>>9608696>The randomizer fuckyness continues - have a gander at a PoP that believe it or not, DOES NOT PROTECT YOU AT ALL!Ah... I think I see what's causing that. Thanks for pointing it out.>Also there's a rare bug that can make Commandos immortalInteresting. I'll have to do some testing on that.>>9609516>collected that glitch happens with the Floyd automatons...Seems to be related to the scavenger modifier. I thought I fixed that but I guess not.
>>9609726I remember having fun with C7 as a kid but it probably doesn't hold up well. Then again, people say Wolf3D doesn't hold up well and I just played that again last year. It was fucking fun. A little more tolerable if you're using ECWolf but still.
don't we need a new thread by now?
>>9609919Wolf3D is actually good. It's very simple, but that works to its advantage. There's some bad level design in the even-numbered episodes, but as a whole it's a very frantic game with a distinct pace and approach to combat compared to Doom. Pretty much every contemporary clone suffered some combination of worse level design, fucked up mechanics, bad additions that drag the game down, cheap-ass production values, and horrible technical problems.
>>9609938New threads don't usually get made until we're on page 9 or 10.

>>9610815Yeah, in an hour or so.PRELIMINARY Serious Business Saturday post. WE WILL START IN ABOUT AN HOUR (5PM US Central). Because I'm not sure if the new thread will be made in time I'll give all the important info now so people don't miss it. Get the map(s) here: https://jesterofdestiny.itch.io/jesterofdestinys-old-maps-pack>IP (join via specify server): 126.96.36.199>Please follow these steps before joining or else the Zorg will ruin your breakfast tomorrow:>Highly recommended to install the classics patch: https://dreamycecil.itch.io/sam-exe-patch if you haven't already. Adds a bunch of nice features like better resolution support and hud scaling. Make sure you grab the most recent TSE1.07 patch.>Go into the Scripts\NetSettings folder inside your main TSE directory and open up the DSLCable.ini file. Change "cli_iMaxBPS" to 1000000. When connecting to the server MAKE SURE YOU SELECT DSL/CABLE CONNECTION.>Upon loading into the main menu, type: "/cli_iMaxPredictionSteps=4" (no quotes) into the console. You only have to do this once. Note: this only improves performance for people with ping under 200-300 (I honestly doubt anyone has ping over this). The server is located in Texas so keep that in mind. If you encounter any problems with this setting then try increasing it up to a max of 10.
Working on a megawad alone is just agonizing. Oh well, still better than mingling with Doomworlders.
>>9610935what defines a megawad? like how many maps or is it by how large the maps are
>>9610935Interesting textures.>>9610936Number of maps.
>>9594441https://files.catbox.moe/b1yokk.zipStarting small with 6 dubs across 5 characters, I didn't bother with getting the EN voice for every other Puyo character, but I at least got the JP dub for Oshare.I'll leave everything else a surprise for players unless they want to open the file in SLADE, pic related.I'm not sure about the best place in the load order for this, but it works when I load the lua+pk3 first, and it doesn't work when I load them after everything from the last session.Because of that, maybe SNS isn't the best place to test this on a larger scale, but it's your call.Console commands:"dub_list" to see a list of skins with dubs, and a list of dubs for them."dub [skin] [dub]" in console while in-game to change that character's dub when you play them.
>>9610936this one will be 30 maps + 2 non combat maps.
>>9610853Thread isn't dead yet so here's the actual Serious Business Saturday post which is starting now. Read the earlier post for instructions, I'm too lazy to repost it. This map pack has a bunch of different maps in it. Idk how long each one is so we might play through a couple or all of them depending on the length.
