>> No.2146140


Yeah, things are cool now. Like I was saying, that's correct

You see, that's the kind of stuff a specific kind of doom player crowd would know, it's usually (READ: USUALLY) the same crowd who can't no longer enjoy certain wads if they're not pushing their shit right in, which is common in wads like Sunder, SoD, Whales, Resurgence, and the SF series. The same crowd who likes "engaging wads" that throw ten archviles and five hundred revenants right in your face.

Hey, strokes and folks. Some people like atmospheric wads, other people like playing with mods and nothing else, and other people just like to play as if they were intended to work as robots when playing Doom. The thing is, you just can't go ahead and force people to play only certain kind of wads that happen to be the ones you like because that's the very essence of Doom, that you can play however the fuck you want because it was built around that concept.

The biggest problem is when that very crowd try to enforce their opinion on the community while rating several works and suggesting gameplay changes so they can fit their own vision. "Add more chaingunners or else this will still be crap and I'll tell my friends to shit on your /idgames upload". You can preach and tell about those who like BD and how they are annoying but we know too damn well they don't have a final input (or any input at all) in the community, while the crowd I'm talking about does.

I'm not saying you guys are from that crowd and I'm not shitting on them or you either, all I'm sayin is that people should let people be and work on their maps as how they please; not everything has to be a goddamn strategical slaughterfest. If they're not fitting a certain criteria, then fine, as long as they don't affect other projects by breaking the balance of the rest of the mapset I don't see a damn wrong thing about a comfy map every now and then.

Honestly, if I was to do a Doo/m/ project, it probably wouldn't be too much different from how the Iron Maiden is handled in DemonSteele.
Start off in unarmored form, fight a little bit bare-knuckle in order to build up momentum/ammo--once you get enough momentum, you can transform into a super-powered armored form, which lasts until either a heavy enough blow (like three rockets at once or something) sends you careening or you die.

Different weapon pickups would probably be different gear which all cost momentum/ammo to use (and can't be used while untransformed), while beating dudes up with your fists has a chance to keep it replenished.

If someone wanted to nick the Iron Maiden system and tweak it a bit in order to make their own Kamen Rider-style project, I'd be willing to help out a little. Obviously, DemonSteele and Push are my main projects at the moment so I wouldn't be able to drop everything to do everything, but I'd still be willing to help out where I can.

>> No.2146185

Maybe have numerous "difficulty" settings that only decide what Rider you use? Certain ones leave you vulnerable as you transform, but give you more boosts and whatnot. Or can only be transformed in certain conditions (Facing a "reflection" (You could just render the sprite looking down a ta blood splatter without making a reflection at all) that could be made from blood, manually putting on the belt, etc.)

In my experience, the Slaughterfest people more or less keep to themselves. It's been a long time since I've seen someone go around unconstructively criticizing wads because they're not hard enough.

Reposting a list I did not too long ago regarding Doom sourceports. Changed a few terms to avoid being impaled by some people ;-)

Use ChocoDoom for a 1993 vanilla experience in modern times.
PrBoom+ for a much "modern" classic Doom experience and wide demo support (ranging from Doom2.exe to the program itself).
G/ZDoom for singleplayer with mods.
Zandronum for multiplayer. Never use this for SP unless you're trying to play KDIZD and/or some specific Zandro-only mods.

I haven't tried the newer builods, but when I tried a month or two ago, Demonsteele would not run in Zandronum If it works in Zandronum now, that's great. I still don't see why it's so offensive to suggest that people play GZdoom multiplayer for mods that don't play in Zandronum. GZdoom netplay kind of blows, but it's all you have for those mods. DoomRPG only works in GZdoom, and only very specific builds, at that. (Anyone know of a pre-2.0 build that will run DRPG? My laptop can't handle the new GL renderer, and all the dfevbuilds I've tried just crash when I load DRPG.

Hi, I'm the creator, and I can verify that DemonSteele has and always could work in Zandronum--in fact, at the very start it was actually Zandronum-only, since it used several unique and exclusive features (hi A_FaceConsolePlayer).
If you really need verification, you can ask GMOTA_Guy or Mystical, since they were the very early testers back when it was just a melee experiment.

I can't run GZDoom, so not building for Zandronum is kind of a self-defeating option. If you encountered an error, then either your build was corrupted or your Zandronum was wonky.

It's a moot point either way, since my philosophy is "the player should use what they're the most comfortable with", and that extends to netplay.

The levels used, in order of appearance, were Dissolution (map01), Hellground (map07), Doom 2 (map18), HellCore (map02), ZPack (E1M6), Scythe 2 (map19), Jenesis (map12), Epic 2 (map01), Going Down (map02), Beyond Reality (map10), Deus Vult (map04), Hellcore (map07), Vanguard (map07), Sunder (map07), Dark7 (map06), Dark Tartarus (tat20), Equinox (map09), and Dark Tartarus (tat12).
If you want my own personal suggestions to compliment DemonSteele, I'd go with Hellcore, Scythe 2, and Dark Tartarus. Dissolution fits unbelievably well thematically, but gameplay is slow as balls and a lot of people tend to want balls to the walls action.

much of sod 28's "difficulty" came from annoyances rather than monsters, i think.

the framerate drops when looking in a direction that takes in a lot of the map. loss of control, get hit by rocket.

pervasive low light level, especially under a fairly bright sky texture. contrast hurts the eyes.

uneven ground level of main area, restricting movement. have to watch where you're running to avoid being brought to a halt in the middle of a storm of fireballs.

whichever section you choose, the first teleport traps you in the middle of a dense population. for the remaining two, you start outside and fight your way in, which is easier as enemies approach from fewer directions. so it's top-heavy.

I unno, Accessories To Murder made the shotguns vastly more versatile, but compensated by letting you carry less and ammo spawning in smaller groups.
It made me appreciate the shotgun more, I was always delighted to see those few pairs of shotgun shells in a dark corner, because every single shell has so much power.

>> No.2148795

The shotgun feels awesome because the ammo is rare and effective, not because you can carry few of them.
Its not even a balance issue yet, its a concept of throwing axes and having extremely few of them just because it would look odd otherwise is a really stupid reason to do it.
There are more options besides carrying 100 weak ass axes or 4 strong ones.
One of them is rare and Charles-Martel-in-Age-of-Empires-2-sized axes that you can collect and reuse similar to GMOTA's hammer.

I would prefer porta-subweapon.
Before the pow+ giving item existed I was using the chests exclusively to get pow+.

Having reliable portable weapon pickups would make subweapons a whole more versatile imo. That way one could actually want to switch between then depending on the situation instead of hoarding a shield or your preferred weapon forever.

All right, so, I remember all the way back when you were planning the carryable inventory item system. You had a nice little stock of things you were gonna use, but aside from the crash hammer and the whip, all of them were pretty questionable (the "flick wand" still makes me roll my eyes).
The crash hammer and the whip are both things that could easily be their own subweapon, but you don't want to do that because they should be usable by the other characters when/if you eventually get to them. Okay, fair enough I guess, even though there's nothing keeping you from just making them subweapons for them as well.

The problem is, at this point, you seem to be kind of desperate to try and make the carryable inventory items A Thing.
You've been brainstorming and asking for opinions on items to use, both in the topics, in #vr, and to other people, and you're still either coming up blank or not liking the suggestions that have been given. And the existing items...well. They sure are a thing. They're gimmicky and really kind of...eehhh. They exist pretty much solely to remind you that the inventory system is A Thing and that's about it.

It's not working, dude. It really isn't. And it's really starting to affect the rest of the mod, because things are getting shoehorned in to work around it, and you're getting upset because you can't think of stuff for it.

>> No.2149757


The wand was a pretty shit idea, and really I'm just trying to give players a reason to explore and try to find shit lying around, before I added any of these items, there was literally -no- reason whatsoever to explore maps seeing as you can generate ammo easily and find weapon pickups off fallen enemies.

in fact the only reason why I bring this up again is because someone's mentioned how the portable chests and cubes don't feel very useful, and I'm inclined to agree.

also there IS something keeping me from making them subweapons: There's too many of the fucking things already. I could always ditch the chests and cubes entirely, and leave it with the POW giver, hammer, and armor boost items.

or just remove the inventory items altogether. Really my biggest problem is just stemming from: There's no fucking reason to go out of your way to find secrets because the item drops are fucking bad and dumb.

Things like that.

Also, I don't think focusing on the inventory is a good thing, like the others said. I never really use it, and there's no real reason to use anything else other than the hammers for a quick grenade-like crowd blender. So the hammers are basically sub-weapons, is what I think I'm saying.

>> No.2149862

>There's too many of the fucking things already

That's the main draw of the mod, dude. The CastleVania-esque sub weapons are really unique from a Doom gameplay perspective and the more there are doing different things, the more options you have.
It'd be like Aeod having less weapons, or HDoom having less sex, or toning down the sword in Demonsteele.

Yeah, I think some trimming is in order, the armor boosters are kinda shit too, I ain't getting rid of the hammers though, they're 2good. But I don't want to make them a blaz subweapon either, as an inventory item, all heroes will be able to fling these things.

The only temporary powerups I've got right now is the arcane chicken and mystic wine. and I should probably look into maybe implementing some other cool pickups that -AREN'T- fucking inventory based.


I actually had more in previous versions, like the shoulder tackle, boomerang, and a few others. And I don't want to expand upon Blaz's arsenal too far out, because I'm planning on each character having unique subweapons.

Better to have a handful of useful subweapons than a shitload of worthless, situational ones, like the old shoulder tackle, or when I had the grappler as a subweapon

>> No.2149874

The old shoulder tackle wasn't very good anon. All momentum stopped immediately when you came into contact with a monster, and unless your crosshair was dead on the enemy, your attack would whiff.

your attack would whiff a lot with cacodemons too.


That becomes more inventory fuckery and I feel things would get even more convoluted that it is right now, and that's really bad. I'd better just leave the hammer alone.

That said, temporary replacements/upgrades to pre-existing mechanics could make for an interesting set of powerups, like a grappler upgrade/replacement for blaz, super boots for Kuros, a super throwing glove for Samson, etc. Something crazy useful and/or fun that lasts for a stage

>> No.2149908

Maybe its just me, but Blaz needs an AoE subweapon.
The torch is extremely short range, wonky to use and better at dealing with large enemies than mobs.
Something like the fighter's flechette with a bigger arc + powered version being the old explosive sword throw would be fantastic.
Hell you could probably use the actual flechette and Zedek's glaive seal for the sprites.
Consider it just a placeholder until you add the alchemist.

>choosing between the hookshot and the hammer?

By replacing that with a morning star head, with a big sharp spike on the top of it, this could be made to be a really amazing (if unrealistic) weapon, aside from a hookshot with an armor penetrating head, you could swing it around like a big old Fuck You Flail, remember how in A Link To The Past, when the knights with the flails would begin swinging it, and the chain would extend in reach? I'm almost imagining it here.

I say morning star head because it would be more aerodynamic, and you wouldn't be stuck sitting on the floor untangling the weapon from six dead bodies and a support beam.

That gives the edgy kid in me a boner, that would be the coolest thing to see, melee weapons should all have a significant kinetic impact, or at least feel like it.

Say, would it be at all possible for the player to grab a monster with the weapon, and then sling them around, knock them on shit in the level? Like use the monster as added weight to the flail head? And then beat the shit out of other monsters with your flail, with a monster on it?

>it's essentially just a fast projectile that left trails behind it.
Could one incorporate the sword throwing mechanic and have the mace-hook thing then retract and return to the wielder? Mainly as a visual effect I was thinking.

I'm imagining an almost Mortal Kombat-esque weapon where not only is the chain spring-loaded, but the player could use their own strength to haul in an enemy as an alternate attack.

>> No.2150470


I'm sure everything you mentioned there is possible, most of it wouldn't be TOO hard to implement, though the snatching monsters and hurling them around part would require some trickery.

well I figure one way to go about grabbing enemies and throwing them is either:

"killed" monsters are left in a dazed state before falling over dead where you can grab them/interact with them in some way that removes them from the map and puts them in your grasp, then you throw them and they die.

Or have a special attack that essentially one shots monsters and puts them into that grabbed state as mentioned above

>slot two weapon
bow. nothing real fancy here. Primary shoots, no secondary. Arrow ammo replaces shotshells in doom and blue mana in hexen.

I feel the axe swing should go from right to left completely, the speed of it feels good though, nice and snappy.

I just ran through a few doom 2 maps. You may want to consider some kinda easily replenish-able ranged option. Maybe a sling with rocks or something.

and the bow trick would be fairly easy, make it so tapping the fire button quickly strings back and shoots, but holding the fire button in one of those frames could make it go to a new state using a_refire ("bowhold") for example

then make bowhold just have the weapon strung back and as long as the player holds fire, the weapon stays ready, then when you let go, have it fire. easy.

Also a personal suggestion but if you go with the sling/rock idea, make them fast firing but kinda wimpy, and buff the damage arrows do. Obviously the axe should be the main face fucker-upper but not everything will be within axing range.

>make them fast firing but kinda wimpy, and buff the damage arrows do

I've implemented arrow holding, and in doing so, I shortened the bow's refire cycle.
The bow is now slightly faster (thus filling both the roles of "weak fast" and "strong slow" ranged weapon by being the "medium medium" between both).

To elaborate, it's sort of like there are three ways to go. Either you try to straight-lace it and have a serious shooter, you basically do the Brutal Doom thing, or you go fucking insane and have it be a whimsical adventure of horrors where you have a sort of rebuild Earth where surviving demons have been integrated into society and you have a weird grungy alienpunk scifi thing where some shit happens and the characters are moderately over the top and it turns out Daisy the Rabbit from Doom 1 has been ressurected and is the new cybernetically enhanced lord of Hell.

All I really want is a base game that's exciting and feel like I'm fighting hell to save the world.

You go in, slay your way through and find the teleporter which is now demonified and cannot be shut down.
The teleporter was booby trapped by Satan and he kills you like the cheap fuck he always is.
He obviously gets bored from winning in the apocalypse and so brings you, humanity's last hope, back to life just to fuck with you.
This backfires as he underestimates your abilities.
You go through HELL ITSELF, killing the big bastards with rocket launcher arms and a whole brain as a body mass he put in charge.
He freaks out and brings you back to the mortal world so you don't keep fucking everything up for him.

You arrive in an apocalyptic earth where the demons are on the borderline of victory and they killed you bunny to say 'fuck you'.
You collect the remaining survivors and get them into safety by sending them into space.
They send you to find the portal to hell to stop the invasion.
You go back into hell and hunt down Satan who fucked up and is somehow lodged into a fucking wall (maybe life support?).

There are no "ragdoll" physics, it's just getting thrust back when you hit someone. That's about as ragdoll as UT99.

Honestly, the little turbo langioler niggers drive me crazy, but at the same time, they radically shift the balance of the game too and I've never seen an enemy like them for Doom before.

No worries.


I think Lost Souls are generally supposed to be the zerg rush enemy type--a whole bunch of small and weak units that try and overpower the player through sheer numbers. Giving them even the slightest bit of competence completely goes against that and makes them ten times more dangerous--not to mention makes a lot of encounters in maps awkward, since it's completely going against how they were designed.

Hosting New Year's servers. Doing things "Rapid run" style, meaning every time we beat a megawad we're gonna move on to another one.

First up is 3 Hours of Agony.

Any suggestions for next up is appreciated.

>> No.2154214

Some solid or shootable actor is stuck inside another actor and that's causing the lift to stall when it hits them. This won't happen if the actors can actually pass through each other (like they have THRUSPECIES and they share a species or THRUGHOST and both are ghosts) so what probably happened is Mark made it so one of the two actors can pass through the other, but not the other way around.

He keeps them solid and having larger dimensions because he wants the player to be able to destroy gibs but what he really ought to do is make them all non-solid, give them all tiny heights and radii (like 2 x 2, smaller can cause issues) and have every weapon that can destroy gibs do a small damage explosion in addition to normal damage that has a damagetype that only harms the gibs. This would also prevent the gibs from blocking shots.

This has been suggested to him before but, like the oft-suggested use of CVars, brushed aside as baseless complaints from nobodies who are only suggesting bugfixes out of jealousy.

Everything is an actor.
