I honestly don't see the issue. And I think we've discussed enough how a picture appearing often doesn't necessarily mean it's just only one person doing it

>> No.2438484

I like the idea of limited zones because you could still make a large map, but would have to be creative about it. Limited size would force a lot of the wad to feel pretty similar - but would allow for creativity in other areas.

Also how would you go about gravity-affected objects, since changing speed on them would also change their trajectory?

In SUPERQOT there's a grenade launcher (well, it IS quake), and it feels super-satisfying to use - when you launch a grenade it starts as fast, as the time runs fast when you fire, but then time slows down, and you can see the grenade's flight in all the details, as it travels through the air.

I believe it's actually possible, if people want, to have a Vanilla or Boom compatible map that uses ACS (not map behavior lumps, but just an ACS lump loaded) to do things to monsters and so forth that will show up in ZDoom while
things will behave normally outside of ZDoom.

It's more limited than Decorate replacements, but you can do things like spawn in additional monsters at certain times or make certain monsters fast or render fuzzy, or use some of the native ZDoom classes like stealth monsters. You can also do things with maps themselves, but you'd want to have a failsafe for the lower comp levels, so like in ZDoom there's a sequence where three doors open in random order but in Vanilla or Boom it's always the same order.

Speedrunners are perfectly fine with -complevel 9 maps. Only reason most of the top 20 wads on DSDA are vanilla is because of the huge compet-n scene doom had back in the late 90's/early 00's.

Its -complevel 11 maps that can lead to problems, since MBF actually gave people the option to toggle certain compatibility options, meaning demo's can desync simply because the person playing it back has different compatibility option settings toggled.

Straight up

Community-driven ZDoom map projects take at least one year of development. Name a single big ZDoom map project that took less than a year to be made, you can't.

It would be faster for /vr/ to develop its own Doom port to wait for The Shores of ZDoom to be in a beta playable state.

It would be easier to just create limit-removing/boom maps than create ZDoom maps, learn ACS, adjust gameplay, and pray to all gods above for ZDoom to not break anything in future development versions.

But why?
ZDoom mapping, if anything, is easier than other mapping because there's much less limitations and things you have to adhere to.

prboom's 32bpp renderer is a gimmick, it doesn't support truecolor textures or anything like that, it still uses colormaps so pink turns grey in low light. its only purpose (except making translucency look a bit better) is you can turn on a bunch of filters that emulate things openGL does - the kind of filters that get you roundly mocked here if you post a screenshot which features them.

You might not know this, but when it comes to Doom mapping, less limitations = more problems

Knowing that you have zero limits will drive you to do ~ALL THE THINGS~ before learning how to actually create a good map.

And we all know how well Doom maps are received when it's someone's first map ever and it's done in a ZDoom format

If the second /vr/ mapping project ever ends up being on Zdoom format the first one will mean jack, period.

>> No.2440758


But then isn't that just a self-perpetuating cycle?

If you get familiarity with how to do maps in a limited environment, that'll push you to continue to do maps in a limited environment, working with what you know and expanding on that rather than working with a new set of tools.
Even now, we see a lot of people preferring to stick with the basics and going with "what works" rather than expanding on their maps and focusing on the sheer amount of power that ACS (or even just basic UDMF texture alignment/scaling assistance) could do for mapping.

This may or may not be true, I've just been ruminating about the complete lack of ZDoom mapsets that aren't TCs as of late and wondering why people don't do more like it.

that's what always happens, when you are doing scripts, sprites, textures, and all that other stuff, as well as maps, the mapping tends to be towards the really basic.

including scripts, logically, would not as well. it's just another resource to use, like textures or sprites or sounds or monsters.

yeah, if you wanted to do all new sprites and all new scripts and all new textures and all new everything, then the mapping would take a hit. but that doesn't seem a zdoom-specific problem, but rather a mapper's inability to manage resources and gauge what he is or isn't capable of.

Of course having a monster from Doom 2 in an Episode 1 tribute was going to rub a lot of people the wrong way.

Newfriend here. What's a good sourceport to play Doom/Heretic/Hexen on?
I'm looking for something that just increases the max resolution to modern standards without filtering the shit out of everything nor adding stuff like mouse look and jumping.
In essence, I'd like to keep the experience as close to the original as possible.
So far I've tried Zandronum, GZDoom (and DosBox) and I'm not fully satisfied, but I don't know if they just need some setup.
Any advice?

You can literally disable all of that shit in gzdoom
For filters go to texture options
To disable jumping and mouselook go to gameplay options and put jumping and courching on no and then go to mouse options and take out mouselook.
And for increasing the resolution go to set video mode and put it on the resolution you want.

Also take in mind that Hexen used jump and mouselook so don't disable these when playing it

Ktulu Calls Zaphod (BIG mistake) - http://www.doomworld.com/idgames/?id=1529

i don't know what to make of this, it is a long and rambling map with some sprite and sound replacements, and a dehacked patch. you are greeted by the sight of a lake surrounded by a wall of everyone's favourite texture, FIREBLU, from which twenty cacodemons emerge when the gate at the far end is opened. the rest of the map meanders around several endlessly long, thin tunnels, a jail, monsters in cages, an irritating puzzle involving a cyberdemon and a crusher (some luck required to avoid the thing killing you instantly), a giant spiral staircase which throws bigger and bigger monsters at you as you ascend, and at the top, an amusing encounter with a spiderdemon and a hundred tiny copies.

the tiny spiderdemons (resized sprites) replace the sergeant, their sound effects are the original's, sped up by a factor of 2. unfortunately the pitch-doubled sound effects bleed into several of the other monsters, making the whole wad seem distinctly silly.

there is a plot, which has no bearing on the level besides explaining why the rockets have KTULU written on the side. i suggest not to read it, it's basically the fanfiction of a teenager who thinks the hitch hiker's guide to the galaxy and metallica are the coolest things ever.

>Surprisingly, not a lot. The only things that was reversed engineered was things relating to enemy health, damage, speed, game assets, water behavior, etc and anything that involved randomization.

I don't really understand this, to be honest.

>> No.2442371

Disassembler, observation and reimplementation.

Assembler, or ASM is a language CPU works on, and you can see what commands are sent to your CPU by the program you "disassembling". It takes a lot of expertise to figure out what's going on though.

Reimplementation is basically watching how game does what and then making your engine do the same thing. It may use different methods (as he made proper sprite rendering in OpenGL for Strife Veteran Edition, stuff that no OpenGL port of doom is capable of yet), but what's important is ensuring that the end result would be the same in regular circumstances. Emulating quirqs may or may not be a priority - that depends on the goal of reimplementation.

Doom64 EX and Strife Veteran don't actually use "Doom engine", but Kaiser's own "Doom compatible engine" called Kex. "Doom Compatible" here means - it can do same things as Doom Engine, and can use WADs as source of data, but it also can do it's own thing. Little to no of actual Doom source code is used.

PowerslaveEX and TurokEX are running on Kex2, an engine Kaiser is actively developing now.

Kex2, with a bit of tweaking would be capable of doing everything Blood's version of Build did, and the rest would be reimplementing items, weapons and AI.

Also, LuciusXL already proved that it is possilbe to make an engine that would read Blood level's data and scripts straight out of resources.

tl;dr - it's possible without a doubt.

Same thing would be possible with eDuke32.
And it is being done in BloodCM, but that's not it, since it can not take original Blood's data and use it, which is the point - it can't play custom Blood maps and such.

Somebody needs to fork eDuke32 and make it work with Blood's data.

Started playing that yesterday. I don't really care for it. Especially because it was supposed to operate under the assumption that Id may have made these choices if given the time/hardware/money. The first 3 missions so far are a clusterfuck, and feel terribly paced a somehow linear despite all the areas they've added (likely because every map now have 3 keys to get seemingly). New enemies are shit and on the hardest difficulty the amount of ammo you get is somewhere between "none" and "pittance". Which wouldn't be a real issue if there weren't at least 3 types of bullet sponges in every room. I have nothing against conserving ammo, but it's tedious to shoot everything with a pistol. It's clearly made for people who are good at Doom from the get go, and that's not really what Id did. No ease time. Pacing is fucked. Level design is fucked.

So hey, let's get inside and see what w---

This doesn't...

Nah, fuck this. That's it. Why the fuck am I wasting time with this shit? The author thinks that you can finish this thing without using cheats? I've seen some first-time amateur shit in my lifetime, but this is just too much.

The best part, there was no stupid goddamn part or geometry in this "map" that couldn't be done in a non-Zdoom format. No 3D floors, no ACS scripts (there's no ACS lumps inside the wad), no custom MAPINFO. Nothing. Nice, really, really nice. Asking for non-"post doom" settings for this piece of crap that could've been done in an engine that actually encourages no post-doom stuff? Build a clone machine instead and get cloned so you can go fuck yourself

In case you're part of the bunch of weirdos that unironically play and enjoy shitty wads, here's the idgames link in all of its glory

I'm hoping the author gets to open a thread in Doomworld for this map so he can receive constructive feedback. Yes, I'm hoping he's one of those sad individuals who get pissy at actual feedback. Anyway, I think the /idgames comments section should be enough for the time being

Very atmospheric, making actually good use of the resources from Realm667 (most gzdoom/zandro wads lay it on a little too thick).
Beautiful architecture and lighting. Not very fast-paced, but the battles are still pretty engaging. First few maps are a techbase, the rest are hellscapes. In the middle of MAP06 right now, I would recommend! Pictured is the middle of a nice strobe light effect (not just flashing, actually rotating).

>deus vult is composed of 4 maps, each one of them with different settings and gameplay, the fifth map is all of them combined.

i thought it was one big map, split up.

the full version has lots of errors that were zdoomisms in 2004 (and still are, in some cases)

- obviously, it broke the 32k sidedef limit. most limit-removing engines can now cope with 64k sides (it's just a case of treating some numbers as unsigned shorts, not signed)
- a few lines had unknown textures on them, this used to crash prboom
- lots of solid hanging bodies to block your path, and torches submerged in the floor which can't be run over; in particular there's one large monster teleporter with a solid corpse over it, that makes monsters teleport out one at a time and is tedious as hell

but the author wanted speedruns of his map, and asked for speedrunners to test it, hence the four smaller versions that have the missing textures fixed, solid bodies changed to non-solid ones, and so on.

It's mostly because of the drama surrounding the mod than the mod itself. On it's own it's a really fun 'Doom Comic' inspired ultraviolet power fantasy.
However the community that surrounds it is a putrid mess filled with edgy 12 year olds who don't understand Doom's charm.
The unironic "RIP AND TEAR XD" kind of kids. They think that BD is just an updated version of doom, instead of a over the top violence mod inspired by the comic people found funny and liked ironically (I hope).
However the author isn't any different and sure as fuck isn't helping.

Yeah, he never said that he liked it.
He said that it was funny and that if id had released Brutal Doom, they would have destroyed the industry. And then afterwards, he linked an article that blasted Brutal Doom.

If anything, Romero is probably tactfully avoiding having a public opinion on Brutal Doom.

Fifteen minutes of setup. We meet Doomguy (just name him Corporal Taggart or something), and he gets fired for beating the fuck out of a CO on Earth after getting ordered to fire on civilians. He goes home to his pet rabbit and finds an ad to be a space marine. So he applies and is accepted, and is moved to Mars. He is placed in a security guard position in the hangar of Phobos. But then the final portal experiment goes terribly wrong and hell comes out. First sight of hellspawn we get, with scientists turning into imps and ripping apart other scientists. The guards try to put the scientists on escape pods but they turn into zombiemen. Doomguy is put on a ship to Mars, but while the Phobos is getting wrecked below, we see the silhouette of a huge demon with an ominous rocket launcher for a left arm. The next scene is the ship Doomguy in getting hit by a rocket. Doomguy falls out of the blast hole. As he falls the ship explodes completely, establishing that he is the last one alive. He falls from orbital height to the hangar below, killing him.

He wakes up at the gates of Hell, and the gatekeeper explains that Hell is spilling over into the mortal realm through a portal in the center of Hell. Doomguy kills the gatekeeper, jumps the gate, and runs for it. We see more demons this time: barons of Hell, pinky demons, cacodemons, lost souls, and pain elementals are all chasing him. Doomguy dodges a Baron's fireball, and it instead hits a cacodemon, and it causes a huge infight. Doomguy uses this as a distraction and makes it to the portal.
