Any incentive to slash is nice, but 4~ slashes per boosted atk is already pretty unbalanced as is.

Short rundown, there are two types of wads:
iwads, which hold the commercial games (Strife, Doom, Doom 2). Since you have Doom and Doom 2, they should be doom.wad and doom2.wad. Do not modify these, these automatically load if they're in the same folder as GZDoom.

Then you have your PWADS, which are mods and are (counterintuitively) not always wads. Sometimes they're .wad, othertimes .pk3, or .pk7, or .zip, or whatever.
Take these and drag them onto gzdoom.exe, and run them with what they're designed for (usually Doom 2).

Sounds insanely fun.
Do not want.

I would rather have anything else as an utility instead of a fun shortcut generator. Even if it could be used for combat, it doesnt fit with the cannon for obvious reasons.
If instead of replacing utility you make it fire with zoom or something, then sure. I wouldnt mind Blaz outright flying either as long as its an optional addition instead of "lets trade his X for a wingcap".

Why not make this new hookshot a subweapon instead though? That way you could use it for "legit" reasons.

Right back at you

>> No.1760506

You can not balance things out when things are relatively simple.

I will give an example here.

How do you balance out lances when the dagger is there?
Both are built around chucking a simple projectile.
Even if Daggers hurt a little less it will let you throw like a machine gun and it causes painchance pretty often. Then it has one of the best item crashes bar none.

You can try buffing up the lance but it just won't ever match the daggers unless those get nerfed into oblivion.

>> No.1760512

Then if we nerf the daggers the lances are still going to be outshined by axes and boomerangs because the item crashes will have more practical uses and boomerangs are really good when "sweetspotted"

>> No.1760513

Yes you can.
When things are relatively simple then they're actually easy to balance.

The problem is creating weapons that all have their own sweet spots, rather than creating two weapons that have the same roles.
See, when two weapons have the same roles, then it's not simple anymore.

Well the gray cubes are cause by palette conversion from Duke 3D to Doom and there's nothing I can really do because it's a limitation of the voxel tools I'm using to convert (slab6 and poly2vox). Nothing much I can do except remove them by hand

>> No.1760518

GMOTA's weaponry are all relatively simple.
The example given is the most barebones: Chuck weapon, deal damage.

You can make lances hurt more but the dagger is just going to beat it out due to painchance and firing rate.

And if you just wanted damage then Goddess Bracelet and Axes are going to do it better.

>> No.1760524

Yes, of course the weapons boil down to "deal damage". They're weapons.
The Super Shotgun and the Rocket Launcher also both focus on "click button, deal damage", but you're sure not gonna use the RL up close and the SSG for far away.

Telling him to "ignore balance" when one weapon is clearly outperforming the other is the absolute worst way to address it.
The proper way is to either nerf the overperforming weapon, buff the underpowered weapon, or preferably find more things for weapons to do than just fly in a straight line ahead.

SGDQ's Ultimate Doom race between Kubelwagon and Dime

Well first off,
I didn't say to ignore balance.
I said to make everything useful.

Then secondly
>The Super Shotgun and the Rocket Launcher also both focus on "click button, deal damage", but you're sure not gonna use the RL up close and the SSG for far away.
You should be comparing the SSG to the SG.
SSG basically gives you 50% out of each shell.

The problem with GMOTA is that the good weapons do serve more than one use while other ones do not or are just completely outshined by something else.

I bring up Lance vs. Daggers because it is pretty much a 1:1 comparison outside of damage/Firing rate.
And Daggers could deal much less damage than they currently do and they'd still be more useful than the Lance.

Then the item crash?
Just blows everything out of the water. That definitely needs to be nerfed. Hard.

But even if it's doing much less damage the Lance item crash won't even match it.

Lots of weapons have this kind of issue. Daggers are dominant just like in GnG.

Derp herp.
How to easily balance similar weapons like dagger vs lance :
Make one costly, fast projectile with huge range/precision and at least 100 dmg (one hits lost souls/chaingunners, 4 hits cacodemons).
The second has cheap, spammable weak projectiles that either spread a lot or have a small range limit.

The DPS can be exactly the same. One would still be good for sniping / hitting flying enemies in general and the other for flinching in close quarters.

If you're worried about their empowered versions, get the total damage from that dagger volley, then make the lance deal 1/5 as much and pierce everything.
Dagger is better for stronger enemies because of the pain chance and relatively good overall, while the lance remains more situational but can easily outdamage within large enough mobs.
Another option is a fat lance that costs 50% as much and deals 75% as much. More DPS, more damage per mana, better for enemies that you can easily dodge instead of inflict pain (cybies), crap against groups of enemies.

The beauty of gmota is that you do not have to balance SG vs SSG and find a way to force the player to switch between the two. You can only choose ONE of them and you have to adapt the rest of your arsenal management/strategy.
SSG has the best DPS and bang-for-your-buck, but forces you to fight in closer proximity to hit all pellets and constantly switch to chaingun to pick single enemies without overkilling.
SG has the versatility that everyone loves, but you need to conserve more ammo and your forced-melee encounters are way worse, as you cant even use the RL for dps.
If you pick daggers for the glorious flinch, then you absolutely need to switch to your cannon for aerial conflicts / avoid or lure heavy weapon dudes until close quarters, instead of simply right clicking, etc.

Also I am really drunk and repeating myself. Bye.

>> No.1760716

The daggers dominate right now despite having a shorter range than Lances.
I am not really sure why Lances don't have infinite range personally.

Powered lances piercing would actually make it rock pretty hard. Right now it's able to one shot a Cacodemon when powered but so can the Dagger crash in a single barrage and it has enough extra daggers to dish out more damage afterwards.

I do not feel that the range of Daggers make it inferior for ranged targets, but then again I play Blaz as a close range focused character since that's what he specializes in.

Mana as in red bar? Or mana as in dark blue bar?
I call the sword bar the Power meter.

Anyways, I think it should still get some meter for throwing so it is a bit spammable, but it should be making a loss to keep it from being a machine gun you can fire endlessly as long as there's a target.

Dagger crash needs a nerf in some way, no exceptions. It's just too dominant.

>If you're talking about in game slow downs, that only happens in gzdoom, not zdoom.
No, it massively slows down ZDoom to render that many voxels at one time. I've done a test where I spawned as many voxel marines as possible and I could summon only so many in software without killing my netbook where as I could summon many more of the same MD2 model marines in OpenGL. That is the reason I use a 5% scale for the voxel model.

The reason it's slow is because a voxel is rendered as a particle in ZDoom, and a model is composed of many particles. The higher resolution you go the more particles you need. The resources to render a 3D model are far less taxing on the CPU than rendering a bunch of particles making up a voxel model.

E4M6 is the REAL pain the ass, even Dime acknowledges this; for speedrunning purposes you NEED to preserve a blue armor that you get like in three previous levels.

Also both M2 and M6 have a cyberdemon, and you don't really get to "fight" the first one, while you MUST kill the second one to exit the map, so this makes the latter level harder compared to Perfect Hatred.

a couple of 64-wide gaps to jump over/through and some equally wide ledges is "platforming"?

did you miss the switch that greatly enlarges the platform around the yellow switch?

>pointless lava pits

how are they pointless? a hazard, to demand of the player a greater skill in precise movement control, is the whole point of damaging floors.

>hitscan enemies

hardly any.

>and spawning massive enemies in your face all concentrated in one fairly short level

the storm of cacodemons at the start forces you to get a move on instead of cowardly lingering at the start of the map taking potshots at things.

the one thing about e4m2 is that it shows up the gap for a demon whose strength is mid-way between the imp and the baron and that can't fly away from the platform it was placed on. it's easy to see how they came up with the idea for the hellknight.

>one of the fuck-off modders decided to make their wad exclusive

Actually, they're not!
There's no emulation going on, they're playing exactly as normal. What source ports do is just expand it to work on platforms they weren't designed for, instead of emulating the original's functionality.

>> No.1761975


Looks like you're loading the classes first, instead of 8-Bit DM first. See, what's going on is that the classes are looking for the weapons in 8-Bit DM, but they don't exist, so it stops with an error.

Combine arm cannons primary with secondary, so it becomes a charge weapon. At tap it shoots as usual, and if held half a second shoots like its current alt.

Which frees alt-fire to punch, which deals little damage but has the utility of pushing back or staggering enemies.

As a die hard Duke Nukem 3D fan and mapper I think Doom (and even more so Doom2) has better enemies. They have a better AI and they are more versatile. There are some situations you can build with Doom's enemies that you really can't with Duke3D's enemies, Duke3D enemies get pretty retarded if you try to come up with more advanced combat scenarios and it doesn't really work.
Not to mention that 'stayput' Duke3D enemies are really bad (they will very often just keep trying walking past the sector even though they can't and only shoot once in a while), while Doom's way of limiting enemies to a certain area is a lot better.

Duke3D shines in many other departments though. For instance, you can do pretty much anything you want with the textures set of the original game if you are creative, while Doom's textures are very limited. Doom mappers use 'new' textures all the time and it's not a problem, while in the Duke3D mapping community using custom textures for simple maps is disregarded and has become almost an unwritten 'forbidden' rule (it doesn't help that Doom's "wad" system is a lot better regarding custom textures; in Duke3D you can't have your new textures be part of the file with the map, it's seperate so you'd have to keep keep replacing texture files to play several maps with different new set of textures; although EDuke32 has improved on that but hardly anyone uses the function).
You can also do a lot more with textures in Duke3D, as it's not limited to "floor/ceiling" textures on one side, "wall" textures on another side, and "sprites" on a 3rd side. You can use anything as a texture for any surface, including sprites.

As a whole you can do a lot more with DN3D due to the freedom it gives you in terms of mapping, with its effects, etc and if we're talking about coding and advanced mods, you can do pretty much anything you want with EDuke32.

Now if we're purely talking about the original game themselves; I guess it's a matter of taste. Doom is more simple, but has a more direct pure action gameplay which I can easily understand one would like over Duke3D's action, which is more slowly paced. In Duke3D the environments matter as much as the gameplay, while in Doom the environments are an excuse for the gameplay. There are plenty of moments in Doom where it feels like the level is built the way it is just so that you can use the enemies in those certain ways, and it's more so the case in Duke3D (and in both cases that carried over to an even more greater degree to usemaps)

Don't let it break you, really. It's as simple as that.
It's just a question of will and persistence.

See, you have three options as to how you can react:
You have someone like Kojima, who is probably unbelievably burnt out and just wants to make movies already or at least not Metal Gear games, but he pushes through and focuses on what he loves about making the games. And then he creates new stuff that some dudes really like and makes a lot of cash.
Or you have someone like Konjak, who makes incredible indie hits which are full of talent and fun, but don't bring in any money worth a damn. But he takes on side jobs, continues to do it for a hobby, and just puts out indie classics that don't bring in a lot of money but sure are great to play.
Or you can try and figure out if there's some way to go the middle road and alternate back and forth.

That's not what "ZDoomism" means, it's when shit doesn't work properly in other ports

Even if you're running in a limit-removing sourceport, like PRBoom+, that doesn't mean that everything will still run hunky dory

A "vanilla" mapset that was only tested with the least vanilla engine is not a vanilla engine at all, and is poorly made for what it claims to be. If you only intend on using ZDoom to test it, then make it a ZDoom mapset. Otherwise, test it in chocolate or DOSbox.

Do what I do. Rip shit off.

Open up Doom (or Doom 2) and warp to a level. Any level will do. Walk around until you find the room that you think looks the best in the level.

Don't take a screenshot, don't make a webm, just remember that area. Remember it real good.

Now open up your editor (Doom Builder 2 is the best, fuck anyone who says otherwise) and recreate that room, as best as you can, from memory. Because it's from memory, it won't be exact, and in Doom, if it's even a little different, it's a lot different.

Now build out from there, and every time you come back to that room, change the architecture a little bit. Add or remove rooms or details. Do cool shit.

If you can't decide on a wall texture, look at the floor and ceilings, which can continue on from the last few rooms. Pick a wall texture that will look alright with it.

Honestly want to see it in DRLA or Brutal, my 2 favorite mods.

I can see both being completely different, and still fuckawesome.

Replace the chainsaw with Powerfist for Brutal (or make it an auxiliary for after you get the saw), and then let the "who needs a zerker pack?" begin. (Oh god, what if it and the zerk stack, and this is accurately represented in the "physics model" scripting... oh jesus... Just punch a zombieman's heart out through his chest, kill the one behind it with the flying viscera, etc.)

and in DRLA, maybe a secret assembly? TTTT mod your fists, first 3 do nothing, 4th gives you the PF, a strong ass melee weapon (I know, you already have the baratus fists, I know, there aren't great melee characters in DRL, but fuck, how cool would that be?).

I believe Mark is working on this? You can ditch the assault rifle pretty easily and that's a big part of it. BFG needs to be fixed though. So this is sort of a semi-problem

Also, in unrelated not-retro news, new KF2 trailer, while we're veering off the "old shooter" rails https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=888YZjapV6Y they're being rather tight lipped about the project, but my dick is still rock hard.

>gibs aren't as frequent
I don't mind them.

>blood decals are smaller
fucking thank you jesus those got awful after long firefights on some maps

>screams get old
Couldn't agree more.

>cyberdemons, headshots, et al
I believe that's being addressed in v21? Also, isn't it more a problem of AI at this point? If you can hit something in the head with a (relatively) slow moving projectile 8 times, without feeling threatened, it's not a good enemy. Yeah, it unbalances ammo counts in maps, but that's not really what difficulty/fun is about, is it?

Oh. Then I disagree with what he did, well, mostly, anyway. Kinda think the parent network could afford to make Toonami it's own channel, and Adult Swim it's own channel, and put CN back to it's roots. But, that's a lot to ask, I know, but I'd watch AS 24/7, and I know a lot of people who'd do the same for toonami who have little/no interest in CN.

>eriance will never make weapon sprites for your mod

>> No.1764265


Demon Eclipse, something that Eriance has been working on since forever.


Most of his spritework is outstanding -once again, you may have seen his monsters in a lot of mods- and it always ends up being used as base for yet more variants, frankensprites and what have you.

There's a beta of sorts in /idgames. Somewhat outdated.

Yes. He's going to have military tech for episode one, hell tech for episode two, etc.

Aside from the fact that Eriance has been consistently showing off results for years, and not having his PC stolen in the night by a burglar? I guess.

Is Mordeth still even being developed?

>no regen health
>hitscanners are actually sons of bitches instead of bulletsponges to plow through

I don't love Brutal Doom, but it's miles better than calladoody.

Shitchucking aside, I just finished Jenesis with Accessories To Murder, shit was knee deep in the cash, it had two cool bosses in the final map. First an interesting take on the regular Baphomet, then, a rather cool final boss, that would pretty much had to be seen.
Boss battles were rough as fuck though, they did not fuck around.

And if it were to be based on brutal doom it'd still be just as shitty as if it were to be based on COD the only difference in the score would be a 2/10 instead of a 1/10

Well I just finished Knee Deep in the Dead with Sperglord Edition, fucking day and night compared to normal Brutal Doom, the weapons feel beefy without being ear rape, the enemies and marine have better, sounds, I feel like weapon balance is better and even more versitile, they all have subtle downsides that can make others more apealing for different situations, at times it feels like what Mark is striving for on his bettter days, when he's not being an asshat

Uh, did you actually had any hope for mod tools on Doom 4?

To optimize a game to make it able to run mods requires more development time, which in consequence, increases the budget. id has been developing Doom 4 for a long time, they had 3 reboots, the budget must be hitting the roof, and they can't afford it. Plus, id Tech 5 is not exactly made to be easily moddable. Expect Doom 4's modding to be limited to stuff like loading skins and textures to override the game's content.

>Would you like a full fucking bibliography with every mod?
Yes. Go look at Samsara's credits list.

>How about we copyright free mods made for a game that's old enough to drink?
You couldn't copyright them anyway, except for stuff like sprites, sounds, and textures that are completely original and not derivative work. ACS and decorate code can't be copyrighted.

This is beside the point though, since nobody is asking for that, just that the modder in question keep track of who did what and credit them appropriately for their free work. He has done absolutely nothing to make it clear that the bulk of the work in the mod aside from compiling was done by others, and is fine sitting back and letting people think the G/ZDoom sourceport IS Brutal Doom and made by Sgt. Mark IV.
