I don't really have any problems with the Kharon's sound effects after the wall hitting sound stopped sounding like a padded bat hitting a cork wall.

Personally I am really interested in seeing what the sheathe that's getting added in will be like.

Joking aside Terminus, I guess Hae-Lin is supposed to be a farmer, who wield a demon steel blade blessed by God; but why I can't see her wield a pitchfork or a scythe? Compared to hammer I think it would be more fitting.
I'm not saying that you should remodel the lightning hammer in anyway, but I'd really like to see a pitchfork and/or a scythe as alternatives. Mine is just a wishful thinking or you consider that?

That's actually a really good idea.
If I ever do anything involving her before she was blessed and conscripted to fight the demons, expect using a pitchfork to stab fuckers.

>> No.2026678


Me neither, I like the cartoon/anime style it haves (specially when hitting flesh and dismembering), but I wanted to give it a try to this set of sounds, they fit really well tbh.

iirc term is going to make the katana a separate weapon, hence the sheating and new draw spriting.

>> No.2028758

It had jumping, don't think it had crouching. As for class, I usually go mage because all of its weapons are ranged, but fighter's pretty good, too. Its punch if really satisfying, and the axe kills stuff quick. I find the cleric kinda eh, but it has the best 4th weapon

>> No.2028763

of course its all made up
because these videos were made less than 5 years ago, all of these videos are part of one huge fucking riddle that is incredibly hard to crack, been following this topic for a long time, and its not your regular /x/ shit, in the end nothing may come out of this, but right now, its a series of creative and creepy videos that got people to think.
I am polish, and I remember when our low budget tv programs were in similar visual style back in the 80s-90s, some of the themes in videos reflect society a bit from that time, and I am hoping that there will be conclusion sometime soon. then we will know if it was worth sticking around for so long

but as I said before, I would like to see someone attempt to make a wad inspired by this, something that is creepy, surrealistic, and somehow makes you shiver, but you have no idea why.

maybe its not doable, but then again, we have seen people do all sorts of things in doom engine, maybe someone will be creative enough to make something with similar atmosphere

>> No.2028770


Jumping is native to hexen, not sure about crouching though, didn't play hexen enough to see anywhere where I needed to crouch.

But jumping is definitely necessary for some puzzles.

fighter is a lot more faster paced, but cleric is more balanced. I'd say fighter if your coming from doom.

>It's also very ironical to say it's shit and to want to steal it, unless you make shit stuff yourself.
No, no it's not, you don't comprehend the meaning of the word irony here either.
I never said the sprites was shit, I said the sprites were the good part of the game, hence why I wanted them. The game being shit doesn't make the sprites shit. Some games are genuinely fucking terrible but they have amazing graphics.

Indeed, it would for instance be unfair to make people play such golden classics such as Atari E.T, and one would surely be justified in decrying masterpieces such as Colonial Marines and Duke Nukem Forever as Not Very Good and hence not worth spending time and money on, and most would not fault you.

Well when you put it like that, I can see your point, however, ZDoom might be able to do things that he wants to do in particular, that older ports are simply unable to do.

That looks much better already, I really like the recessed, carpeted floor. The blinking light is a nice touch, are you gonna have the light pulse or flicker?

>> No.2029743

Advanced port mapping features largely do nothing but get in the player's way.

There is far more potential in having a large collection of portable maps, and an orthogonal large collection of engines and engine gameplay mods (for those engines that support them). This maximises the number of ways a player has to enjoy the game. (number of maps × number of mods).

I don't agree.

I can very much see your point, but I still don't think one should abandon advanced sourceport mapping for that reason, you can still make good things with it.
Hell, just ACS scripting alone is a great incentive for mapping in ZDoom if you have very specific things in mind.

Quick tip, to make the ceiling of the light not pulse as well, to merely make it look like the lamp itself is pulsing, raise the ceiling of the pulsing sector by just 1 pixel, and leave the upper linedefs untextured, the surrounding ceiling flat will bleed over the ceiling, and the pulsing won't show in the ceiling.

The reason why anon jumped on the other anon because he was mapping on ZDoom was that, in general, people who create maps for the first time end up using ZDoom formats and not using ZDoom features at all, while the entire geometry could still be done in Boom, for example

Don't act as if this wasn't a thing.

>how do I have doom check if both pinkies are dead

In THIS case you'll want to use either ZDoom in Hexen or UDMF because you'll end up using ACS, which is non-vanilla as fuck

(Note to >>2029720, these are the kind of situations where one would choose ZDoom mapping over vanilla)

>> No.2029912

That isn't even a port. It's a custom made DOSBox configuration and some binary patches injected into the original .exe file. They never had the source code.

>> No.2029921

yes I am already mapping in Hexen format for ZDoom, I posted progress here a few times. you start in a lift, you lower it and you can see cacodemon, killing it lowers one of the walls that reveals a new room, now if you do a pistol start, you gotta move fast because room with cacodemon is small, yet inside of it there is a shotgun, backpack, ammo and an imp that is out of sight, point of the map is to move fast and kill fast because new things are constantly being revealed by killing monsters and collecting items. so in room after caco, there are two pinkies guarding a chaingun, having one die and doors open can pass for now, but later on the level there is a section where you fight multiple barons and revenants, problem here is that in that section player must kill all (8, 12, 16)of them, number depends on difficulty, after killing number of these enemies in this arena, a lift will be lowered, so yeah, do you know how to make checks for player killing monsters? do I use tags on monsters for that?

also I am sorta in the middle of argument of Zdoom being good only for gameplay mods.
to clarify, I sorta agree with >>2029720 that a good map can be played on any engine, on the other hand, being a full vanila fag is not worth it because many features present in modern sourceports such as Zdoom are VERY useful, for example already mentioned ACS scripting which can make some very interesting gameplay elements, another useful thing is removal of flat restriction, as in, you can use any texture on wall or flat without problems, this helps when you want to break monotonous looking map or want to add more detail, same goes for things like slopes, dynamic lights, voxels etc.
dont get me wrong, I fucking love vanila doom, but many features of modern sourceports can make doom better if used the right way, so why not go with it?

Make the switch to UDMF. It pretty much is better in every way than Hexen format since there are less janky workarounds to have stuff done. For instance rather than setting a dummy sector with lighting and transferring that lighting to the floor of another sector you can just set the floor lighting in a sector directly. You can even convert your hexen map to udmf with one of the udmf converting tools floating around.

Hexen combat guy here once again (as always heh) just a few questions:
For context I'm not going to be leaving this mod as a standalone weapon-set/combat rebalance - I'm actually planning on making a level set, with a hub-town with multiple levels, dungeons to be precise. The mod itself will be heavily focused on survival and exploration. So with that in mind here I go:

Would potion brewing be a good idea? Basically, you would have glass bottles which you use near water to collect Essence which would be a base of a potion, then using a special item (brewing kit/mortal & pestle) you could combine the Essence with herbs, mushrooms and other items you find in the world. Potions that you brew could be basic stuff like Health, Mana, Speed, and other such buffs, or an offensive throw-able weapon like the Flechettes you see in the original Hexen. Maybe Potion brewing can only be done at certain places. Perhaps a Dark Souls-like Bonfire?
Herbs could also be purchased from Merchants.

On Inventory: I'm thinking of over-hauling the inventory system to be more RPG-like, perhaps being sorted into Usable, Puzzle and Keys (Puzzle and Keys could be a Special Items section while usable has its own?) and the Hot-bar. The hot-bar would be like Hexen's current inventory, but with limited spaces. You could customise the hot-bar's contents to be whatever you like, you could stick your potions and throwing knives or bombs or whatever utility items the player has. What do you guys think?

And how about Hunger? I'm not too serious about this, and quite frankly it seems like a pain-in-the-ass in most games, but if I were to implement it, how would it work? Maybe it could be a hard-mode only feature? Being hungry could reduce attack damage or slow your evasion or stamina recovery. Maybe the player takes slightly more damage while hungry?

Anyways, input is always appreciated

>> No.2030270

alright Hexenbro, looks like we are thinking on similar level.

hunger can work like in MGS3
simply put, if snake does not eat in MGS3, he will get tired faster, his weapons will be harder to hold etc. so its a good idea

now for potions, I had an idea that I am going to use in game I am making, potion brewing starts like this
first you pick a bottle, this will be the size of potion, so maybe bigger bottle = stronger potion, or longer effect of it

second thing you do is pick the base of your potion, water is ok for some thing, for defensive potions alcohol or wine would be good, but its bad for arcane stuff, juice could be good for magic but bad for combat related stuff.

third thing you do are ingredients, maybe three max, so these would be mushrooms, plants, parts of monsters and all sorts of different shit you collect

and if you need maps or textures, I am sure many anons here can help, I dont think there is anyone who would shittalk your mod right now

>> No.2030278

what are you looking for? the the archaic point and click controls of the first one, or the annoying rpg elements of the second?

>> No.2030283


Hunger as a hard-only feature seems good--in fact, since Hexen's difficulty systems really do shit all, it'd probably be better to have the difficulty act as a slider in regards to how realistic you want things. Bottom difficulty has flying punches and splattering dudes on ceiling, top difficulty has you managing your weariness, wounds, and hunger.

>Would potion brewing be a good idea?

That sounds good. As for the potions, do you think you could make throwable ones? Like a Potion of Slowness or something, making it do a splash ''damage'' area and nerfing the enemies with a Slow status for a limited time?

>On Inventory what do you guys think?

This sounds great too, especially if you consider making dungeons and stuff like that. Maybe you could have equipment too? If not better weapons, maybe passive stuff, like amulets and pendants and bracelets?

>And how about Hunger?

I played a game called One Way Heroics, and its hunger system is pretty simple. When your Energy goes to 0, you get a -25% to your strength and agility, along with regeneration decreased by half. It sound like what you said, and I think it would work alright in a fast paced combat game like Hexen.

>> No.2030287

>The mod itself will be heavily focused on survival and exploration.
Shit, I'm down with this. A lot of Doom and Doom mods is heavily focused on tons of close-quarters combat, so something different is a good change of pace.

Potion brewing would be interesting but would multiply work exponentially--you'd have to keep track of ingredients, essence, and etc. Still, Wrath of Cronos was good with it and people like that.

Good idea, I was thinking about having other Essences as different bases. Hm, quicker stamina depletion would work when the player is hungry.

Hm, maybe for easy mode you have all your specials at level 1 but if you're on normal you have to unlock your specials and on hard you have 0 specials?

Throwable potions are already an idea, just need some de-buffs and maybe some odd occurrences where potions do the opposite if it hits an enemy? Like damage potions healing skeletons maybe.
Equipment might be possible, but maybe limited to stuff like bracers, pendants and rings.
On hunger: a good thing to consider, maybe if you're too hungry the player can't dodge as far/quickly

Yeah, I always thought Hexen was suitable for exploration but instead we were laden with awful key/switch hunts, this mod aims to mix that up. Potion Brewing adds an extra layer of thought to otherwise simple gameplay, along side the new combat and inventory you'd have to manage yourself and prepare before taking any risks.

Maybe, but at the same time - I quite like the Dark Souls like stamina, where it regenerates over time - and a lot of actions are tied to stamina like Dodging and Blocking - it would be tiresome to have to eat after every encounter with a mildly difficult enemy.

I'm not going to, realism is dreadful. If you have seen some of the goofy shit that's in this mod already, you would know that realism isn't my goal - hunger was only an idea on paper.

Max stamina, not current stamina. The upper limits of stamina you can have at one time. Stamina would still regenerate, just to a lower limit over time. It just means you can do less dodging and blocking in quick succession until you eat, the frequency of which can be entirely determined by you.

Not the guy you replied to, but in MonHun, the max stamina doesn't deplete each time you take an action, it's over time. I think it decrease by 25 each 5 minutes, but I could be wrong. The normal amount of stamina is 100 and you can go up to 150 if you eat.

BFG Edition is only better in the sense that it can run on toasters with a relatively smoother FPS, but the graphics looked blurry as hell to me. The extra Doom 3 mission is pretty much a CTRL-C CTRL-V of existing levels, and while some parts of it were pretty fun (I liked Hell), it was mostly boring to me and I didn't feel like it was introducing anything new.
Also, modding goes right down the shitter with BFG, which is pretty much the only reason why I hate it. The settings also suck compared to Doom 3, and the classic Doom ports are awful too. (The randomized sound pitches are REALLY annoying, and I couldn't even find a way to turn it off.)

If you have an old computer that can't run Doom 3 without suffering from FPS drop, then try the BFG Edition. However, if you don't want to trade tweakability + mod support for performance, then you're probably better off sticking to the original version. I personally side with the original.

Hello Doomthread! I've played Doom pretty regularly for the last twenty years but I am just now getting into playing non-official wads. I'm wondering what people do about saving; I normally play with no saving at all because the id wads are pretty easy, and this worked for Scythe and DTWID, which were not substantially harder.

However, I'm playing through Speed of Doom right now and the large number of severe traps and, like, popup archvilles has led me to wonder how many people are actually playing this on UV with no mid episode saves, let alone midlevel. I'm plodding along through the wad at a decent speed without saves but getting killed by a silly trap at the end of the level is starting to become a frustrating norm.

Duly noted.

What's the point?

I do something like this, although I tend to play episodic things as episodes.

I realize that, but I'm wondering what others do in the case that not saving doesn't make you any better, it just makes you more frustrated. I play through official levels on nightmare when I want to get better.

To be honest, I'm really not sold on the idea of dropping six revenants in a shoebox-sized room as a means of increasing difficulty. Maybe that's the real problem.

>> No.2031237

just adding to this anons post

frustration can be a very good thing in the game, but only if you know that you have failed because of yourself, not bullshit in game, an example would be player constantly failing to dodge cyberdemon rockets, if its a one cyberdemon in a big corridor or two in a spacious area, this is relatively fair, but if its 50 of the in Doom 2 entryway type of map, then frustration and anger is justified by a shitty wad

so what can be good in "fair" frustration? ability to overcome your weakness, in this case cyberdemon rocket dodging mentioned earlier, beating a section/enemy/level that kicked your ass but was fair about it can bring great satisfaction, this is why proper enemy placement is a hard thing to do at times, and this is why so many wads can go down the shitter really fast

I think it depends on the weapons available.

Using your example, six revenants aren't that deadly if you have a Plasma Rifle or BFG.
Rockets if you have room to work with(Not compatible with shoebox rooms)

I prefer smaller scale maps that are tough and challenging rather than revenant spam or slaughtermaps.

But I am fine with the latter.

It's flawed, quite so, but I still think it's pretty good in it's own way even when compared to it's much superior predecessors.
The gameplay is actually rather fun, if you get used to the darkness. Flashlight mod is recommended, but not required.
The chainsaw is fun as fuck, I think it's better than the original chainsaw.

If you know what you're doing, you can basically use the chainsaw for most of the game once you have it, it's viable in near all but some of the later, harder horde encounters in the hell levels. You can even snuff Cacos with it if you get up in their grill.
Tentacle commandos? No worry, they charge at you, you take their challenge, spring towards them so you're literally touching them, duck down to avoid their tentacle lash, and then at the same time split them upwards through their groin.

Chaingun commandos and Revenants at a distance are really what'll remain hard. Mancubi are also hard to saw, since they fire volleys of fire, and they're surprisingly fast at turning, so you can't just circlestrafe and then saw them in the back, they'll wheel around in an instant and bonk you in the head with their arm cannons (they're harder than the Hell Knights in this regard).
Archviles are perfectly viable for the chainsaw if you just sprint up to them and saw them until they die, they won't have a chance to retaliate if done right.

Hacx was an iwad in the vein of Strife, Hexen, etc.
It was released early because development was protracted way too long, and by the time it came out 3D engines like Quake were storming the scene. So they ended up rushing the product and released a buggy, unfinished, and unpolished product that had promise but not much else.

So in comes a group of fans hoping to fix things up and rehaul it to be the game it should have been with Hacx 2.0, but development is...slow.
Very slow.
Very, very slow.
Like "Marty Kirra's development speed seems like F-Zero GX racing" slow.

If you gents have some time free, I'd like to ask for a little bit of feedback.

One thing people have been asking for in DemonSteele is the ability to wield the sword by itself--a lot of people have also been asking for a way to do sword attacks that aren't just rapid-fire atatatatatatatatatatatata.

So what I did is make the Kharon a weapon by itself, and the alt-fire is a charge-up that unleashes a powerful strike with the blade--mechanically, it fires five different rippers in a wide spread that die off after three tics, tearing through enemies right in front of you. Each level of charge increases each rippers' damage by 1, which means while it's not incredibly powerful, it's still capable of clearing out crowds of mooks quite easily.


It's unpolished, simplistic, and basic, but the functionality is there for the purposes of checking out.

Simply put, I don't like it. At all.

This completely negates the need for both special attacks and the Omen--it's a crowd-clearing attack done completely for free with very little drawback aside from "it must be manually charged", which can be done easily when hopping from mob to mob.

While having a more powerful attack might be a good idea, I don't think this is the proper avenue to pursue it with, and I wanted to check and see what you guys thought before either dumping it and going with another idea or trying to see if it can be refined.

>> No.2032786

its fps game where you are a convict in the place called "Outland", you know how in purgatory you can atone your sins? its sorta like that in outland, except instead of atoning sins you can only make your situation worse, people who were complete scum end up there as a punishment, this way they can make their sin worse, and go to worse part of hell, it sorta makes outland a waiting room for hell.

the easiest way to imagine what it looks like, is to mix S.t.a.l.k.e.r., old fallout games, and art of this guy http://art.vniz.net/en/beksinski/

now here is something, everyone is a criminal, worst of the scum, and they come from different dimensions and reality planes, this means that personalities you meet range from mass murderers up to villains with super-powers, you are a criminal being sent for some crime, and you try to survive in a hostile environment, much like stalker, but with much more hostility from side of other humans. on top of that there are monsters roaming outside of human settlements, and to make it worse, super-villains mentioned earlier, sometimes they get bored of the super secretive business they are running in their domains, and they come out of there to have some target practice.

whole world of the game is willing to destroy you, and you gotta try to survive.

in terms of gameplay its more of fps-rpg game, you would have an inventory system and a hotbar like in many games, for example deus ex. there is no crafting, and everyone trades with good or gold, as this is understood everywhere easily, if you are too poor or you want to buy something VERY expensive, you may have to trade some of your flesh, but you may not always survive the trade.

So I was thinking about the charge mechanic for it and I had an idea.

How about leave the charging to the Omen and turn Kharon and sheathe into the combo weapon?

Like having the sheathe out strengthens the sword and the alt-fire gives you different combo finishers or something. Maybe one or two directional attacks with very very small AoEs if you felt that it shouldn't be dealing with hordes at once like a special can.

This would mean that you could specialize in in the Kharon like how I normally play and if you want to do well with it then you'd have to do well at dodging and stuff while taking out enemies one at a time, even if you can do it really fast it won't really replace Omen's groups at once capability or stunlocking.

This would make it so you don't have to overlap with the Omen at all and specials would still be dominant.

>> No.2032828

also take note that the kharon is your main form of defense at the moment
you can cut down projectiles, which is a great way to block attacks and protect yourself, along with dodging

if primary fire is going to stay the same rapid-fire chopping, what if secondary fire accentuated the defense? use the sheath to bat at projectiles, blocking them or deflecting them back at enemies with a much wider berth than the sword

Also just by the way Kharon works you'll get a lot of special naturally so you don't need to tweak that.

Even right now I'm swimming in special meter because I focus almost entirely on the Kharon.

>> No.2032860

Or you can make the primary fire into rapid swings and alt-fire into timed swings.

It doesn't sound like it should have the charge mechanic at all if all it really amounts to is just replacing the Omen's first hammer hit.

Omen would probably beat it clean thanks to it's lightning fields but more importantly the Omen is already kind of doing what your charge mechanic for Kharon does. But more rapidly thanks to the energy meter

You could try a sorta Elder Scrolls approach where depending on which direction you're going, when you hold the attack, it changes what kind of attack you're doing; i.e. stabbing/slashing/overhead strike/etc.

It would be a way to increase the moveset of the sword itself, giving the players more options and different ways to wield the sword.

Just an idea.

>> No.2032889

After testing it quite a bit just now I have come to a conclusion:

It's really weak and doesn't belong
Now let me explain.

Although you shoot a projectile out in front of you(I guess?) it doesn't really deal much damage.
It works on weak hordes but honestly you can just tear through them manually with your sword while building meter and souls.

And you do it faster and faster.
To be honest Kharon already does so well against lesser enemies without the charge mechanic that it feels unnecessary.

Even moreso if you have the Omen.
Go with timed combos or heavy hits on alt-fire, it would fit the weapon's pacing much more.

>> No.2032897

dunno about the rest of people but I always hated that kind of control. Chivalry, for example, does it a lot better.

Or Shadow Warrior for a simplified way to roll it out that makes a little sense, given that Chiv's system would be borderline impossible in Doom.

>> No.2032913

I feel if such a change was done then it would have to provide more bonuses than just an animation change.

I don't think Doom would support that kind of thing very well because ultimately there will be one much better way to swing than the other so there's no reason not to swing that way.

>> No.2032930

In fact I think I might submit that unlike all the other weapons the charge attack has no use whatsoever.

I don't know how long it has to be charged, but with about 10-15 tics I can kill a small group of Pinkies.

If I just went in slashing at them, I'd not only clear the same amount in about the same amount of time, but I would kill much more because of the ranking meter. Also soul meter.

I tested this on Sunder.
All it would ever really be good for is the opening for a fight.

Feels about as useful as Omen's big 200% charge attack but without nearly any of the payoff considering how much time has to be put into it.

In short, this is definitely not the route you want to take but for different reasons than you posted.

>> No.2032936

And by tics I meant the sound that the charge up was making, not 10-15 tics of Doom time.

>> No.2032957

Also to note I don't use Omen's big full charge attack because it takes so long.

But I can see why some people might find it useful.

I would greatly prefer something like combos or heavy attacks for Kharon, it fits with the playstyle that Kharon currently has(Fast paced rapid movements and cutting down hordes) and the charge mechanics go completely against that.
It probably doesn't help that with the fear of invalidating the Omen it ends up being really weak.

I think if you did combos with it you could make one of the finishers into a quick wave slash that works like the charge attack right now and it wouldn't even be remotely imbalanced.

Because this charge attack is poopy doo

Hmmm. All right, glad to hear my gut instinct on this was right. It was a nice experiment, but sometimes experiments don't really pan out that well.
Thanks very much for your feedback, all.

I'll experiment with combo-style heavy attacks next. Though for clarification, when you say combo do you guys mean retro style beat-'em-up combos where the attacks chain into each other, or input-based Tekken/Devil May Cry style attacks where you push buttons in sequence to activate chains?

>> No.2032987

>All my posts being linked
Wow dang I wasn't expecting that.

Anyways for combos both DMC and Tekken both have very different ways of handling them.

Tekken is purely about a chain so it's a sequence.
DMC is about timing.
Some beat-em-ups have a light/heavy combo system like Sengoku 3.

I think if you do combos it should be like Sengoku 3, but this might mean you'd have to overhaul rapid attacks when the sheathe is out.

First of all, I have to admit straight up that I haven't played any of the games you mention.

Second: You've obviously given this a lot of thought, but only a fraction of what you said addresses actual gameplay. On the one hand, to make this work as a game, you need to be a lot more specific about that, and be prepared to change things based on what turns out not to work as you start to implement it. On the other hand, the assets are where most of the effort would go, and you seem equipped for that: You can make your own textures, build your own maps, write your own NPC dialogue (samples, at least, if not an entire storyline) and animate your own sprites. You can put together elaborate in-engine mockups, exactly the way you want them to look, using (in large part) only the skills you already have.

My strong suggestion, and my only one for the moment, is that you do exactly this. Draw NPCs and weapons in the style you want. Make a level or two, showcasing the kind of architecture you want. You might need help patching textures into the game but in the meantime make as much progress as you can and post it here.

the game that can be done in doom is sorta an introduction to the outland, and game I have mentioned, Stalker, is the biggest inspiration. I am really surprised that you did not play classic Fallout or any Deus Ex games, this would quite fast paint you the picture of what I want to achieve.

in terms of sprites, I dont want to use them for everything, since you can use model formats of Quake 2 and 3 in GZdoom, I think this would be the way to go for many things, mostly weapons, enemies and some decorations.
