As cool as it looks it might end up getting outshined by the standard forward sword special entirely.

In terms of raw damage, to be blunt, it's utterly outshined by every other special. The build I'm sitting on is 800, which is just enough to one-shot a Vile.
The appeal is very much the range, hitting nasty bastards at a safe distance to clear up a scene before waing in.

More up-close players will likely ignore it completely.

That's how I feel too.

Although a lot of weak enemies can be fun to take on at once, slaughtermaps tend to put just massive walls of HP at the player.

Not very fun.
Revenant hordes get pretty old too.

Maybe I just don't know good slaughtermaps but generally it feels like a slog to me.

maybe it would be better if every monster was a glass cannon that did 4x damage but had 1/4 health? (numbers arbitrary, would need balance testing, this is just off the top of my head)

>> No.2277987

>>2277962
I honestly think Hell Revealed and Alien Vendetta shouldn't be THAT hard to get into. Its a big step up in challenge compared to even Plutonia, but you learn to get used to it.

I'm not too big on Sunder type maps, though. Can get a bit too extreme, combined with some maps taking even hours.

>> No.2278002

>>2277986
I don't really feel this addresses the problem directly.

Doom's enemies are best when set up cleverly or in well done ambushes.

The monster placement and encounters are pretty important.
Slaughtermaps do pay attention to this but with the scale it kind of just ruins the pacing.

By increasing their damage and cutting their HP it just means less mistakes allowed for the player but the encounters are still pretty much the same.
It doesn't help that Doom's monsters are relatively slow and whatnot.
Doesn't quite have the dynamics of Serious Sam.

I actually do enjoy those levelsets.
I'm not the guy that hates HR and AV.

But when there's so many enemies in some maps I tend to feel like it drags on too long and have to give it a break.

Like those levels in AV with like 800+ monsters.

Something like say.. Sunder though?
Can't do it vanilla, too tedious.
Can't do it with something like Russian Overkill either. Those weapons are just way too strong.

I can play it with Demonsteele though, but only once in a long while.

Honestly, download a homebrew port for a special DS or 3DS cart.

The GBA ports, while still fun (as they're still actually Doom), are heavily crippled, Doom 1 is crippled in that maps are cut/altered, the boss monsters are completely cut except for the Baron (E3M8 DIS is replaced by E2M9 Warrens, you fight a bunch of Barons and Cacos at the end instead of the Spider Mastermind).

Color isn't perfect, for one gamma is quaint, and you'll in fact want to turn off shading/darkness if you want the game to not run like a slideshow. All the blood is censored, either by removal or by turning it green (blame the Germans for this one).

Now, the Doom 2 port on the GBA is by far superior, it has every single monster and level in there, just about every level is intact (except for some trimming here and there), aside from two, which are there still there, but each of them are split up into two parts due to limitations on size.

The shit parts of the Doom 2 port are that color seems washed out somewhat, and the AI just doesn't give a fuck, if you're far enough away from an enemy, they simply will not pay attention to you even one bit. Blood is still censored, and the Wolfenstein levels have all the Swastikas and nazi imagery removed and replaced.

There can be an Arch Vile across the field/yard whatever, and you can plink away at him with your gun and he won't give a fuck until you get close enough to him, even if you wake him up, if you get far enough away, he'll stop chasing you and just stand there. I believe this is also because of memory limitation.

The good parts of both:
You have Doom on the go, even if shoddy, still Doom, you can have fun with it, just not as much fun. As a kid, I got through many boring family gettogethers with these.
The music actually sounds pretty cool.

You would have to learn Decorate.
Create a new actor that's derived from the original (eg. NewRedTorch), then set that up to replace the original. Then create another "glow" actor that renders in additive mode, and then set the previous actor (NewRedTorch) to spawn said glow actor on the first frame, so the glow sits in place overtop the torch.

I've actually been working on a compat thing in DRLA+DRPG that causes monsters to become more horrible. Monsters will act differently if they have a shadow aura, and bosses will have different attacks, abilities and behaviours based on every single aura they have.

And the chance of enemies having auras increases based on several of their stats too (or just energy, can't quite remember.), so this will become more apparent the higher level the enemies get.

Shadow aura bosses? u r ded

Sweet jesus I am almost done with my very first doom map.

I quit on it for a bit more than half a year, I have probably already spent at least 15-20+ hours on it because it took me to learn a bunch of shit from the ground up and I kept on falling into holes where I had to redo over some things.

I promised to make it at least a decent map for my first time, I concentrated REALLY hard on making it feel "old-school" where it's non-linear and closed in like 90s doom maps.

I just have to finish one section, and then properly texture a couple of places, and then make sure shading looks nice and spooky in some areas.

It was a mistake to use GZDoom builder because I didn't utilize any GZDoom features. I just hope it works on Zdoom as well.

Yeah, I know what you mean. No idea how to deal with that, balance is hard with two super complex mods intertwined with each other.

Still, at least mid to late game wise, these things should have the capacity to melt you.
Here, I'll give you a preview of the sort of thing you can expect.


A Spider Mastermind with a crapton of stats that fires 4 shots a tic, never leaves overwatch when it spots you, occaisonally shifts from side to side while firing, constantly regens huge amounts of health, can emit massive EMPs that will cripple high-tech armor and gives you EMP V, creates a shield in front of itself that it can shoot through but can't be shot through by you, and spawns Arachnotrons every now and then.

Of course, this stacks with the usual aura stuff, like stealing your ammo, credits, leveling up monsters, regening nearby monsters health, reviving monsters, cursing you and teleporting to you, etc.

So yeah.

The funny thing is I didn't even really touch what's broken in RLA, only RPG and was mostly just talking about how fast the player grows.

But for the example boss you've given please two do things to make them dangerous.

>Always has the capacity to hit you with EMP V
>Has the ability to turn off the player's auras.

Augments and Auras are like the absolute definitive gamebreakers. Like just thinking off the top of my head you can get two sets of 4x damage and stack them for 16x damage.

Also the low cost EP refills at the base makes aurastacking too easy and you can just pile on the timer for very little investment.
Not to mention that aura that cuts EP cost is just like wildly abusable as well.

I think these are the biggest offenders in DoomRPG balance.
Doom RLA is pretty broken too but it's mostly a few weapons in particular rather than the system itself.

Despite the imbalances I have a lot of fun with it, I just don't turn on the augments that dramatically overpower the player

This was rewritten yesterday. They will now only both stack up to a maximum of 8x damage. Yholl has also given me an idea on how to make the auras much less abusable which I will implement when I'm not practically a zombie in the sleep department. The other thing is that when you have all augmentations active and maxed out, that can seriously chew through your battery, so trying to keep them active for a long time shouldn't exactly be easy. Unless you are implying I make them drain even faster?

>Also the low cost EP refills at the base makes aurastacking too easy and you can just pile on the timer for very little investment.

Even considering the fact that activating an aura adds +10% cost to all subsequent costs in stacking?

I definitely agree there are some balance issues in DRPG, and it's certainly no easy feat to try and keep everything balanced with the myriad of mechanics that exist now in the mod, but that's also the reason why I make so many options and internally used values available to the player in the options menu so they can customize their own experience if they think things are too easy or too hard.

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for constructive criticism, but I would find it helpful if I could get some input or suggestions on how to fix the balance issues. I'm always open to suggestions on how to make things better.

It's been a hot minute since I've put any work out, but it's been for a good reason. I've been working on my first 5 level wad this whole time entitled "Tabula Rasa." It's a completely fresh wad with above average difficulty in vanilla Doom format so it should be compatible with everything. It's built for continuous play but each level can be pistol started for a more tight ammo experience. Also, I tried to give the chaingun a lot of love but it isn't required.

I've been working on this a long time so I hope you guys enjoy it. I'll be dropping it in the next thread.

>They will now only both stack up to a maximum of 8x damage
So with max strength it is still going to be 16x damage.
It's pretty hefty.
To be honest I'd make it 2x at most, no joke

>The other thing is that when you have all augmentations active and maxed out, that can seriously chew through your battery, so trying to keep them active for a long time shouldn't exactly be easy.
Last I checked there was an augment that cut Augment battery drain by 50% AND it boosts max battery too.
Now it doesn't seem like this is much but if you play as a Luck character and there's no reason not to you can get that and the augment for luck AND an aura for drop rates you will be swimming in overpoweredness with just a couple of levels.

>Unless you are implying I make them drain even faster?
There should be nothing for capacity really.
Portable batteries should also not be stackable or at least have the player only hold 2-3 at the most. It should be a short boost to the Auras, not an absolute massive stackable thing. The max Augs on at a time should also be limited. Like instead of able to use all at once eventually? Maximum of 2 or 3

>Even considering the fact that activating an aura adds +10% cost to all subsequent costs in stacking?
Full EP restores is quite a bit and allows a few minutes even without any EP upgrades.
It doesn't help that there's the Aura that cuts EP costs. And an Augment that cuts aura costs.
And they stack.

Now to explain a few things in the post.

>Playing as a Luck character
Free stat/skill boosts, items and shields. Also a lot of money. You make a large return on your investment by going with luck.
>Augmenting luck and aura for increased drop rates
It piles on quite a lot. It eventually reaches a point where the game freezes for a moment because of how much stuff you can pick up after doing that Magnet(?) skill.
Depending on how many enemies on a level you can get up to 100+ stat boosts.

> The max Augs on at a time should also be limited.
When you roll with all the augments at once you get: 4x damage, 50% damage dealt to you, -50% EP costs, 4x drop rate, Augments cost 50% to run, double capacity on Augments, speed boost and a large chance to not die on hit, regens.

Auras? Basically the same thing without augment modifiers.
But you get infinite ammo and immunity to status effects.

There needs to be some limits or diminishing gains on these things. It also shouldn't last longer than like 5 minutes for auras.
Auras should not also allow you to stack all at once.
The +10% EP cost per stack is really nothing in the short term because there's a EP recharge station.
Either the cost should be more to use the station(A large percentage of credits on you) or you should make the rate of cost go up dramatically.

Also like.. Seriously remove the Aura that cuts EP costs and the Augment that cuts EP and Augment cost. They exist to make these things last forever.

If they have to exist, make it on monsters only and have it on a seperate timer from the Auras the player can use. Give monsters unique effects with these auras and make those a reward for finding and stealing from rare monsters.

A lot of Doom RPG stuff is just nuts and the numbers are massive. That's why I feel the player grows exponentially.

Fun is great.

What I do hate is being so ridiculously overpowered that enemies just die by the droves and were completely unable to do anything even if you decided to just sit there and let them hit you. I do not feel this is fun

There's not really any sort of builds to go with in DoomRPG as well so it doesn't leave a lot to experimentation.
You don't really have to pick and choose what your character turns out to be either. It only starts off that way for a little while but then once you get a few things you ramp up dramatically and leave everything in the dust.

And with just about everything basically dying to a single bullet this makes fights not really engaging on any scale.
It goes from Doom with stats to putting EWEPs to shame very quickly.

And then you get really invincible and there's no reason to let go of the button as you just run in without a thought and kill everything before they get a chance to do anything.

I do not find this to be fun.
I think at least putting a limit on how ridiculous the player would only help the mod.

If you plan on having the costumes as different skins, then you need to define the mugshot in skininfo.
If you plan on having the costumes at different points in the plot, then it's just going to be a simple SBARINFO check for an inventory item that changes to a different mugshot.
Likewise, you can always display separate images with a check for powerups, since powerups give the player inventory items which can easily be checked for.

Gonna make the blast radius a little bigger, I want this to be a very comfortably defensive attack

>>2279584

Depends on what version you're playing, if you're playing the test versions with the new sword sprites, power the sword up with reload then hit zoom.

if it's the old version with the old quietus sprites, press and hold primary fire til Blaz's hand is cocked all the way back. Sorry for making shit all obtuse.

i'm sorry if i seem insensitive, but surely even if you're colorblind you can still use an image editor to look at rgb values.

the edges of this are a greenish cyan. note the green and blue values are similar with the green slightly higher, but red is much lower. thus a greenish cyan.

the placement of the inventory icons is a little unfortunate. do i have the hammer or the shining knight item selected? nobody knows!

They are supposed to be 3rd grade action movies with a cheesy story. I see nothing wrong with it.

AD1 was a well fit story and had lots of contribution to the community.
AD2 and DoW expansion are both great. Just story was a bit "tame" considering the main character supposed to be a copy of Marv from Sin City.

>> No.2279929

Playing new version of GMOTA, my thoughts so far:
- Autodart is much better compared to previous version.
- No way to increase arcane bar with the shield? It kinda sucks. Is it possible to convert blocked projectiles into arcane power?
- I still have no idea why POW weapons de-POW themselves. POW has timer, or you lose it if you take too much damage?

Once again my shitty HUD making skills prove to be an issue. The Crash hammer will be stepping into the subweapon slot for v0.9.9 though, and the invbar will be gone entirely

I think AD2 story actually takes itself way too seriously, which clashes with its bright, flashy artstyle. It is supposed to be a homage to classic beat-em-ups, with the plots like "someone stole your girlfriend, go beat up on every criminal in the city", and in AD2 we have dark story about serial murderers and brooding shell-shocked alcoholic Max-Payne wannabe as a protagonist. DoW expansion was much better in that regard.

it's difficult to know how to respond. i don't purchase "indie apps looking like game from 1999". even if i did, they wouldn't run - as i said earlier, i have a 10 year old computer with 512MB ram.

however i suspect most zdoom users have far better machines, and i don't want gmota guy wasting his limited unpaid volunteer time worrying about an issue i (and apparently, no one else) had and that he would have difficulty reproducing himself (as i recall, he built a new system last year so mostly likely has masses of ram).

ideally he should be spending his limited unpaid volunteer time on issues that affect users who are likely to spend the most time in his mod, not some driveby tester. (i don't have much interest in gameplay mods, no point him spending more time worrying about my issue than i will spend playing mods!)

finally, i think you have a right to dissatisfaction at indie developers' poor products. but there is an essential difference - they're asking for money.

For recording and playingback Demo's I mean.

Most levels should be fine, but TNT map10 and 31 would likely cause some issues. 10 has different nodes and reject, making desyncs an inherent problem, and 31 is based off the TNT31.WAD fix, meaning it'll desync on non-max runs, due to different nodes to the original broken version.

There is blocking and there is trying to club Centaurs with puny maces.
It doesnt have to be invulnerable for long ass periods, or at all.

Yes, I was thinking about a winged slime of some kind that constantly drops small slimlings that pursue and harass you, on "death" the wings falls off and it becomes just a big leaping slime, after an extended period of time it'd either:

Well, if it makes you feel any better, given advice from a lot of people and discussion in IRC and Teamspeak, the following things have happened and are currently in-game as of yesterday:

- Aura stacking is now much more difficult, the number of auras you can stack is now based on your energy stat and you'll only be able to stack every aura around ~175 energy
- Blue aura's behavior was changed so that it doesn't cut the cost of a skill, but refunds the percentage cost when the skill is actually used instead, so you'll still need the base cost to even use the skill first to get said refund, it also has more levels in smaller increments
- Added a bunch of levels to a few augs and completely reworked the battery aug to have many more levels and not have as noticeable an impact at lower levels, plus also worth noting that it only charges when you are totally still and not moving
- The aug's max battery is now based on your capacity stat, so it can get much higher, but in general due to the higher levels augs now have, they will drain battery much faster when leveled up, I may further increase drain in the future based on other factors, waiting to see how the current setup pans out though
- Upgrading augs is now much more difficult, as it requires both a canister and a number of upgrade units proportional to the level of the aug you are trying to upgrade to

Also regarding builds, I'm not a huge fan of classes and being stuck to one build type the entire game which is why you can eventually branch out and master everything. It's a personal decision and I won't be changing that anytime soon.

I'll agree that Hellbound is overrated. Some maps are depressingly exhausting. It was style over substance throughout.

But D2TWID is not what I'd call underrated. I also consider DTWID to be overrated. Most of the DTWID maps feel less coheherent and more random than the originals. Like they were made through rng. I prefer maps that show influence from the originals, but with the authors own twist thrown in. Not maps that emulate the originals to the point that the authors essentially throw out their own style to be "authentic".

Although now that all these item crashes are awesome in some way, the Daggers are really lame in comparison.

Do they even hurt more than previous versions?

Working on a testing map for, well, testing things. Gettin' real tired of Doom 2's map01.
It's got an arena for fighting dudes, switches that spawn items/ammo/powerups, lots of room to jump and dash in, etc.

2 possibilites:

Hitscan itself goes through all bleeding actors, spawns a trail of invisible projectile actors between where it eventually impacts and the shooter (or rather, where the shooter's gun is) and then each give an inventory item on impact that runs a script that gives damage and a check item that the script checks for and terminates if the actor already has, and the item is taken from the actor shortly after.

Or use a ripping fastprojectile (zdoom only) with a custom damagetype and have the painchance for the damagetype be 255 and the painstate for the damagetype runs a script that makes the actors immune to the damage from the projectile and then returns it to its normal value a couple of tics later so that they only take the first tic of damage from the ripper. This would always cause pain though, but you could get around it by having a ton of inventory items to "save" where the actor was in whatever state it was in previously. You could simulate pain by having an inverse chance of the actual pain chance to remove all the state saving actors and take the actor to their see state.

The second option is probably easier and I'm more sure that it will work.

>since 4chan's "do it for free" artists draw her much better than someone paid to
It depends.

Some really good artists that usually only work for money will regularly come to 4chan drawfag threads to take requests for free for practice or for fun.

Also, what did you pay, 10 dollars? That's not a whole lot, a good full color commission can end up costing as much as 50-60 dollars, more if you want other objects or a particularly detailed background. Extra characters in the picture would obviously be even more.

I totally dig all of these changes and the progression changes with Auras and Augs sounds reasonable.
I also like how your aura changes make them reasonable and if you want to be so godlike you'd have to stack Energy points AND find stat cap boosters.

>Also regarding builds, I'm not a huge fan of classes and being stuck to one build type the entire game which is why you can eventually branch out and master everything. It's a personal decision and I won't be changing that anytime soon.
I can understand that. I mostly felt that the lack of experimentation was due to how Luck kind of covers everything at once and there was no real downside to investing in it(Stat boosters, Stat caps, finding more of everything)

A big reason this turned out this way was due to Aura and Aug stacking covering any sort of weakness with almost no investment but since the changes make the augs/auras less dramatic this should make it all more reasonable.

I'm sorry if my posts came off as me really not enjoying the mod too. I actually enjoyed it quite a bit but these changes sound really good.

Remapped defs, every class has now its own exit sequence, just like in the original games (depends on the type of exit, e.g.: crossline walking doesn't trigger Duke's button smash sequence). This works with all IWADs.

Fan formation is a good idea because it does not overlaps with other crashes.

Considering the dagger is the "short range, huge dps" subweapon, how about instead of just increasing ammount of daggers, the item crash creates a moving wall of daggers glued to you, then every dagger flies to where you are pointing one at a time similar/almost identical to the current crash.
That way you can headbutt enemies to stab them with an irresponsible ammount of daggers and reuse the crash sooner.

I've seen levels where this was the case but it feels too repetitively linear - hit switch, clear out new closet that opens, hit switch in that closet, clear out the one it opens, repeat.

Which is a shame because that kind of level can potentially be very very nonlinear. Hit switch, two monster closets open with a switch in each that opens two more closets. Expand choices in powers of two from there.

Of course that would just feel like wandering aimlessly into unpredictable repetition, but if the closets each had a theme and were labelled as such on the switches, then it would actually be choices. Like the Normal gym in Pokemon R/S/E.

They really dont go through their full potential of changing dynamics, though. They only end up being slightly more annoying than D1s enemies. Chaingunner and Hell Knight can easily fit in, since they're basically modified D1 monsters. Arch-vile also fits in, because they're effective no matter how they're used.

PE's are potentially easier to deal with than simply using lost souls, Because you could just run up to them, and punch/saw them to death before they can do anything. With the map using lost souls themselves, you could already have a group of them ready to annoy you.

Revenents only half fit in. They do more damage than most, and run faster than most. But the infamous usage of them you see in Final Doom wouldn't be possible without open rooms/maps.

And your suggestion of using Arachnotrons and Mancubi as only mid-bosses, means they might aswell not be used at all.

I wasn't the one who mentioned Mancubi and Arachnotrons, only the three I listed there.

I know that Revenants were spammed like crazy for Final Doom but I think in small doses without a Super Shotgun they could be a decent enough Doom 1 challenge in sets of 2-3s with a few other enemies around.

>> No.2283103

another reason why I hate "TWID" stuff is that they're on-par with the id iwads in challenge, which is flat out not interesting. I prefer the MMs and Final Doom for offering a more challenging vanilla experience.

I think I broke DoomRPGRLA...

I got a solo operative suit on my scout, after dicking with the armor's set bonus for a while (stealth, opening attack does huge damage), I got a Grammaton Cleric Beretta... After reading mod packs effects, I decide Sniper sounds most effective/interesting with current loadout (makes burst fire 3 rounds instantly, full auto dumps entire clip instantly)...

So I start using the full auto dump with the armor bonus to shit on big monsters instantly... So then I thought "hey, isn't there an aura that gives you infinite ammo?" (I don't do the skills much), lo and behold, 7th tier of blue aura!

So I kick on blue aura after respeccing to get enough energy, stealth up with full auto grammaton... aaaand hard freeze.

My simple/obvious theory is that with infinite ammo it's trying to spawn infinity bullets and that causes gzdoom to shit the bed, but just in case that isn't accurate, y'know, bug.

without doing the game crashing part, the rest of that design is fun as hell, relies on a lot of lucky drops or straight /giveitem-ing though

On an unrelated, but related note - why isn't there a SPESS MUHREEEEEN 40k mod? It's a game. About space marines, with a vibrant modding community, and WH40k is huge among nerds... How have they not crossed the fuck over yet?

Chances are there's some obscure mod somewhere

There's also a Source mod called Exterminatus with Ultrasmurfs and Tyranids, but I never tried it

There was a Spacehulk mod that's almost as old as Doom itself.

and in the non-bug-but-fuck-this-is-annoying category...

Is there any way to turn down (or off) the screen reddening on taking damage? At higher levels in DRPGLA half the monsters that hit me cause the screen to go red for seconds, effectively blinding me.

Helen Keller mode is less than entertaining, and I doubt it's an intended effect.

I'll pester Yholl about that when he comes around, sounds like maybe a 0-tic loop is happening somewhere in the gun or something.

I'd also like to just point out that very frustratingly, GZDoom has been one hell of a crash-happy whore lately and has been crashing left and right for me, it's definitely not DRPG related because if I test it with the latest master of ZDoom I don't get these crashes.

Jesus fucking christ Graf, update your shit already. It's been like over 2 weeks.
