So, I've swapped out Blaz's old footsteps (Link's Boots from OOT) and replaced them with the softer footstep sounds used in the DoomRL arsenal, I'm sure they've been used elsewhere too but that's the first mod that comes to mind.

Ah you fucker. I was hoping I wasn't the only GnG buff up and posting right now. No second harder loop no, but it's going to be rare and powerful as all hell. If I can I want to add the bracelet to the arm sprite.

as for footstep sounds, I really like them, but I'm swapping them out for something significantly softer and easier to ignore for players. Though if I get enough complaints, I'll remove them.

>> No.1489419


I don't think I ever mentioned gauntlet, the second hero is Kuros from the Wizards and Warriors series, and he'll be using sound effects and other assets from Battletoads and all other manner of games made by Rare for the NES.

Now that you mention it though I can use a few sprites from the NES gauntlet for HUD elements and shit, good thinking.

>> No.1489427

I would honestly be surprised if there wasn't GnG buffs on /vr/ at all times.

You don't have to worry about footstep sounds if you want them in there.
I know how to edit them out, and had to do so for quite a few mods because most people didn't have the decency to put in a quieter footstep sound.

It just doesn't feel right in Doom mostly.
There would also have to be that feeling of taking proper steps in Doom and the weaponbobbing isn't quite enough to give that feeling.

I am revamping the third map in my vanilla mapset-in-development. It WAS a remake of E1M2 of Chex Quest, my favourite level from that game, but it's too "open" compared to my other levels and the original level was too repetitive. So now I'm expanding on it in other ways.

Anyway, I'm adding an arboretum to one end of the map; what do you think the best way to do that is using only vanilla objects?

I have an idea for a good discussion here.

We can take screenshots of parts of WAD's that we like and talk about what it was that we liked about them (or even what we did not like) - so as to help anybody else who is making (or wants to make) a map.

I'll start.
Pic related is from "Suspended in Dusk".

I was very impressed at how Espi was able to make levels more detailed with shape alone and using limited textures. You will notice he uses the same textures quite a lot throughout the levels but because he is able to make varied room shapes and layouts the textures do not seem overused at all.

Let me try.

Pic is from Hellbound wad.
The best and most awe-looking city map I've ever seen in a 2.5D fps.
Now, in essence if you look at it the map isn't THAT detailed, I have seen much more detailed buildings in Duke Nukem 3D with a more varied used of textures. In essence, the map isn't even THAT big : there are two parallel streets linked by a small one.
So, what does make it so good?
Well, even though a coherence is kept in color scheme with that white-ish texture, each building is different. Different in size, in height, and in architecture. Each building having a different height is probably the most important here. Like I said there isn't THAT much detailing but there is enough to keep everything slightly different while keeping a coherent look, and enough to make it just 'realistic, believeable enough'. There was actually no need for more detailing, and with more detailing you'd probably reach the building limit sooner and not be able to make the map so big.
Finally, it LOOKS realisticly sized. It really isn't though, there are more windows than you'd have floors if it was realisticly sized, but the windows still are bigger and more realistic than you're used to see in old 2.5D fps. Like I said before, it's just 'realistic enough'.
All of this, while keeping the most important, interesting gameplay : a part of the look and the realism is even sacrificied for the gameplay (you can see the elevator in the middle of the pic) and the differences in height seem like they are thought especially to go with gameplay since projectile monsters will you shoot from different heights. There are also enough corners and architecture hiding part of the map to keep things interesting throughout : you'd think you'd activate every enemy of the map at the start with such an open area, but you really don't.

Never liked autoaim, I want to place my shots by myself (I tend to use just the Dot, colored red, for aiming), it feels so strange and constricting to rely on autoaim.

And I really never break sequence in Vanilla style maps. Though I do like to use Jump/Crouch/Freelook to better be able to dodge projectiles and enemy gunfire. Works best in OpenGL.

Yeah, the autoaim code always feels like it needs improvement. Some shooting tactics just don't work well from afar; I like to focus on movement with keyboard-only now, since I think that's what most WADs focus on more than simply the shooting aspect.

Also, jumping trivializes nukage/lava, which I don't like.

as an example, i think if you aim up/down manually at a monster that is out of autoaim range (the most egregious case being map30, but there are others) this is on the same level of questionability as jumping/crouching.

if you're aiming up at a monster that autoaim would have found, then i guess that's blind eye turnable.

I disagree, but I have played Vanilla Doom multiple multiple times, on a couple of consoles as well as computer.

I just in general want to be able to move freely in an FPS game such as Doom (Wolfenstein 3D is kind of different, since it doesn't really have varying volumes of height).

I'll say though, even without modern sourceports, high resolutions, fancy .wads and mouselook, Doom, as a core game, remains very very fun. I honestly expected modern .wads and mods to spoil me, but I still find vanilla Doom really fun.

They're so unreliable to dodge with that it really doesn't change much. if you duck, monsters aim lower. Jumping requires extremely good timing. Strafing is much easier. You can use ducking to hide behind a low wall that would not have normally covered you, but that's about it.

It's not a huge game-changer, I only ever use it to duck below low barriers and shit, so that they can't shoot at me.

Unless you know the range of the vertical autoaim you can't really reliably tell when you're not supposed to hit a guy unless it's really really obvious.

Also with source port additions you make bodies fall off ledges with damage and kills.
This makes Plutonia easier at level 16 because you can use a rocket on the Chaingunners that constantly get revived by Archviles.

Personally I don't mind how one plays Doom as long as they don't do things they were obviously not supposed to be able to do.

Like jumping over monsters, gaps, running on top of monsters, sniping, crawling through windows, etc.

But this is even if you are attempting to play Doom as it's supposed to be intended. If you just prefer to have those things available then more power to you.
Just don't submit speedruns when you do things like that, they don't like it

Is there a way to change the screen-depth to the original? Thanks

Dude who is playing thru Thy Flesh here, that little buddy is quite useful to dispatch the imps at the beginning of the level, all you have to do is to provoke the imps so that they throw a fireball at him.

>>Like jumping over monsters, gaps, running on top of monsters, sniping, crawling through windows, etc.

Jumping over monsters means Pinkies are absolutely negated as a threat since they can't ever bite you or ever corner you.
You can't be cornered by anything in any level set even if surrounded by Revenants.

You can skip almost all of any level with a single jump.
You can rocketjump properly to actually skip massive amounts of levels.

Also to clarify about the level 16 example for Plutonia, you can use the rockets on the Chaingunners with autoaim.

I was meaning that in a half serious manner, as in, a dislike of Arch-Viles. I figure that I didn't convey that properly.

>Jumping over monsters means Pinkies are absolutely negated as a threat since they can't ever bite you or ever corner you.
I tend to not want to get close to pinkies (as they're big muscled vicious mouths), so the idea of standing on one never really occurred to me. It'd make you a tall and clear target to any surrounding ranged enemies though, so there's that. Sometimes I'd perhaps run on top of a hoard to get up at some ledge or platform, to get away from them, but I rarely get an opportunity like that even in slaughtermaps.

>You can skip almost all of any level with a single jump.
>You can rocketjump properly to actually skip massive amounts of levels.
Well I wouldn't do that, that's throwing away half the fun of the level.

>Reaching places before you're supposed to be there with ease, getting into places you shouldn't have been able to in the first place and so on.
Well, that'd really only be to get away from overwhelming hordes of monsters or heavy fire, as in, jumping through the window and then ducking down, to not die. I like exploring though, so the thought of reaching a spot the author never intended for me to is a little bit exciting.

>It was just a joke
I see.

It was not my intention. I'll tone it down.

Couldn't you just put a rocket in them and send them flying down into where the Arch-Viles are hiding? I mean, unless you're concerned with getting 100% kills, but I can't remember if you could get that in Vanilla.

cl_capfps 35? Why? It's a boolean, 1 = true and 0 = false. 1 means it synchronizes the framerate with the game clock, 1 frame per tic update, which is around 35fps.

vid_maxfps is a framelimiter that only exists in zdoom and gzdoom so far, but is basically a custom fps cap. With vid_maxfps 35, the video update and game timer are running on separate timers, and results will be jerky and not be as good as with cl_capfps 1, which uses only one timer.

Opinion != fact. Others might not agree with you, but don't try to pass off a subjective view as indisputable "truth".

That said, at least you brought reasons to the table to back them up. The way I see it is that each monster is not designed to face the player by itself, but combined with others and the environment to give a player a combat puzzle of sorts to overcome.

I don't like slaughterwads that rely on sheer numbers for that reason. Those maximize what you call "tedious" and make it the sole focus of gameplay.

They aren't bad because they can actually miss sometimes and because they force you to take priorities in combat. Taking cover sometimes isn't a bad thing either.
>throwing projectiles that are effortless to dodge.
They are pretty hard to dodge when there's a group of them, and the level design should use them creatively. Also, not all enemies are imps you know.
>Proof of this can be found in the fact that it's impossible to make challenging WADs for vanilla gameplay that don't either rely on massive hordes of enemies, bullshit challenges like archvile hordes hidden behind objects, or using the technical limitations of the engine to hobble the player.
Doom is a 2.5D shmup, so yeah.

You start with either an Imp or a Zombieman - you're supposed to be able to choose Grass, Water, or Fire like in actual Pokemon, but the author only ever implemented the Fire starter, so Water and Grass give you a Zombieman, which is the equivalent of a Bug-type.

There's three "nightmare" type difficultys in DoomRLArsenal:

Nightmare: New nightmare enemys, pain in the ass, prone to fucking you in a heartbeat. No respawns. Tougher enemys.
Technophobia: New Cyber enemys. Even more of a fucking pain. Thank GOD there's no nightmare cyber.
Fall of Man: Hidden beneath Technophobia. This is both above and some of its own new monsters blended in. You will die.

At the moment it's "oldschool" - open a text editor and type away. floor/ceiling/low/mid/high color/light are now independent from each other - much like Blood/Duke.
I tried to write a plugin for Doombuilder2 but the abysmal C# annoyed me so much that I nearly melted down into Fedora goo. After that I started my own map editor and realized - that's not as easy as I thought! We'll see...
32bit color is not supported by most because it's slow. I use SIMD where I can (blending(scaling) and OpenGL(minimalized backscaler with an alpha option for overlays ala Mame). I have yet to support internal resolutions bigger than 320x200(external aka upscaled are "unlimited") which will have to be further optimized. I lack the tech know how to split up the renderer into SIMD-able chunks taking advantage of e.g. 2 fixed point operations per clockcycle enabling multiple drawsegs at once.
HSL enables you to use some primitve form of overbrighting and the dynamic range from light to dark is fantastic... though currently the color is kinda "flat".
My Chocolor Experiment is into the Mame territory. I'm a designer type person so the tech is hard for me.

>Real gun sounds are terrible on their own, they need to be upgraded
That seriously depends.
The report of a gun can vary heavily depending on the acoustics of where you discharge it, as well as barrel-length, muzzle-device and cartridge, and not to mention where you stand in relation to the muzzle.

>Firing a gun in a field
>Firing a gun in an alley
>Firing a gun in a house
The same gun will sound radically different in these different environments.

In a field, the sound would be free to travel, and it'd echo across the plains.
In an alley, the sound would almost vibrate through the air, you'd feel it.
In a house, the sound would feel dense, soft yet heavy (the smaller the space, the more it'd damage your hearing, by the way).

Also, something that can be difficult to convey, is the feeling of the operating action, as if you could sense the bolt unlocking, slamming back into the rear of the receiver and then back home, locking again, all in the blink of an eye, but you'd feel it.
You could add the very subtle noise of the action to the gunshot to try and convey this.

I think they made the chaingun intentionally wimpy in Doom. Look at Wolf3D, that chaingun is one of the best-feeling guns ever. But Doom had a whole bunch of weapons that were even stronger, and if the chaingun felt as good as the one in Wolf3D, who would use anything else?

Ya hear me, too many guns (at least for me) "Exotic"/"Unique" weaps? The fuck is that? Just gimme a goddamn shotgun, a chaingun, a RL, plasmagun and a fugg-u-all gun and I'm all set.

Don't get me wrong, I respect Yholl in every aspect and his work too (which is great to see the DoomRL being "backported" to Doom, and also BIG props to SoloSpaghetti because the spritework is really fucking great), but this just isn't my cup of tea.

You've probably already figured it out already but use the [ and ] (normal binding) keys to cycle through inv. items until you have the armor and hit the Activate Item key (don't know what normal binding is). You can only carry one armor in addition to the one equipped so that's why you're blocked from picking up another one.

If you're just interesting in equipping the one that's on the ground, just cycle through your items till you get the armor you have right now, press Activate Item ONCE, and then press Drop Item (you need to hotkey this to a familiar button since you will be using it a lot). That way, you can pick it up again as a backup armor instead of having it destroyed by equipping it and then trying to remove it, which breaks it.
