Recently I've been going through the past cacowards and trying stuff out. I'm not sure if I can explain why, but I was really taken with The Grove. I hate switch hunts, especially micro switch hunts. The map was so well done that I completely overlooked that. It felt really relaxing, but genuinely scary at the same time. The fear of the unknown type of scary. It was like being a kid lost in the woods. It felt nostalgic. Anyone else like this map? Anyone know of something similar?

On one hand, i love the idea that Doom is getting a PROPER PORN MOD[seriously, porn doom mods existed long ago] at last.
But on the other hand, HDoomguy stated that he's only making the monsters to be sexy which sadly takes away the fun of fucking female marines
But on the other hand, Mike12 could make H-Freedoom, which would be more interesting because Freedoom sepentimps could be made sexy Lamias and the Hell nobles on freedoom are slime monsters, this would add more variety in terms of fuckery.
But on the other hand, h-doom is still in techdemo status.

I just noticed some kids in a youtube comment section (who knows what made me scroll down) insisting that Big Fucking Gun is a stupid name and the BFG in Doom was originally supposed to be called Blast Frequency Gun, which is completely false as far as I'm aware (especially the part about Big Fucking Gun being stupid).

Regardless, several sites, including the shittier Doom Wiki and goddamn Wikipedia claim this without any sources listed. After doing some digging up, it seems that Blast Frequency Gun is actually a gun in an unrelated game, Dead Rising 2, though it was most likely in reference to Doom's BFG.

Since I can't be the only one autistic enough to care about this, someone please tell me whether I'm mistaken and just missed some revealing interview or something.

>> No.2590048

Probably the easiest way is Zandronum and the bundled Doomseeker server browser. You can set up and find LAN games with it. Make sure to look through some deathmatch maps to play. Try sifting through Greenwar 1 and 2, Cybercrime, UDM 1/2/3/X, and Dynamite DM. I'm sure you could find some maps to pick out through those.

For co-op, two interesting map packs are Memento Mori 1 and 2. They're specifically made for co-op.

You kinda had to be there when the shareware first came out to really get a kick out of the bruiser brothers, really. Same goes for E2M8 and the Cyberdemon.

E3M8 was pretty bad, even for the time, though. Plasma rifle in the middle of the level makes for an easy fight. And on top of that, if you were playing progressively, you'd likely have a BFG handy to kill the Mastermind in literally 3 seconds.

I don't know if I should be asking this here, but do these look good? My image editing skills suck and I've only done minor manga editing before.

Should I change Munic. (Ammo) to Munición with smaller letters like I did with Armor for Heretic? Also, it's supposed to be Armadura even though that M looks like an H or N.
The reason I used Coraza rather than Armadura in Doom is because I hadn't thought of writing it with smaller letters like in Heretic. Coraza specifically means breasplate or cuirass, but I might change it to the same as in Heretic.

The title in English comes from the traditional translation of the Bible, that's it, King James' version.

The traditional Spanish translation is Reina-Valera 1960, which says the following in Proverbs 5:11:
>Cuando se consuma tu carne y tu cuerpo
There is no point in using fake old Spanish for a phrase that doesn't even use "vuestro" in any translation of the Bible. Besides, the word "tu" is pretty old and "vuestro" wasn't used exclusively.

Likewise, titles in Spanish don't, or rather, shouldn't capitalize every word, only the first.

Shows all the geometry without stretching or distorting it, as well as all colors you could ever want. Objects out in the bright are actually illuminated properly and objects in the dark are dark, regardless of distance.

>Software mode
If you use any kind of freelook the perspective stretches horrendously and anything that's just a few feet away bleeds away their palette as everything gets progressively darker the further away you are (regardless of if the room is well lit or pitch black). You are at the complete mercy of the ingame palette and if you want new colors you will have to replace existing colors and shades or suck on some washed out colorbled sprites.

if you're getting camera jerkiness everytime you strafe then yeah I suppose. it's completely unnoticeable if you cap the fps at vanilla doom's original internal clock, which is 35 iirc but anything above that completely screws up the effect.

I just find it a bit interesting, considering Alien Vendetta's first 20 maps, which from what I've read was actually used as a baseline for what the BTSX maps should play like, used a lot more of them.

Excluding E3 and the secret levels, AV still uses well over a hundred barons on UV. maps 04, 06, 12, 16, and 19 use at least 5 of them, and maps 13, 14, 18, and 20 use over 10 of them. Absent in maps 1-3, 5, 7, and 10

Excluding the secret level, BTSX E1 has the UV amount in the 20s. Map12 is the only normal map to use at least 5. Absent in 1-4, 7, 9, 13, 14, 17, and 19. I can forgive this, as it is the beginning episode.

Same criteria as above, BTSX E2 has the total UV amount in the 50's. Map 25 is the only normal map to use more than 10 Barons, and maps 15, 20 and 22, are the only other levels to use at least 5 or more barons. Absent in maps 1-8, 10, 13, 17-19, 21, 24 and 26. This is way too many absentees, IMO.

Each level was themed after a different videogame, sometimes mimicking even the map structure and it had music accordingly.

The only levels I can remember from it are one based on Megaman X, the stage looked like a futuristic base and the music was either Spark Mandrill's theme or the Intro Stage theme.

Another level was directly based on Castlevania: Circle of the Moon, even the map had the shape of the map of that game, with perfect rectangle rooms.

I hate them being used incorrectly. Which is pretty much every single time a baron has been placed in Doom. You could replace them with a Mancubus or an Arachnotron most of the time and the map would be improved.

It's a very niche monster. It's not threatening, it takes too long to kill and it's generally boring to fight. It has one use. A deterrent. It's the bullet shield. That's it. Same goes for hell knights.

More over it's a bullet shield you want to only be a moderate to low threat to the player. It's the bullet shield you use when a Mancubus would add too much damage to the fight.

Like say you have a teleporter and you want monsters to attack the player while he has to get into the teleporter. Instead of putting a door blocking the teleporter forcing the player to wait for it to open you want it to be a monster, but you don't want the monster to be the primary threat you want it to just be something the player has to think about kind of. You put a baron there. It has enough health to hold the player up and force them to fight the other monsters, but it's not threatening enough to force the player to do more than some mindful side or back dodging.

It's not about "optimal" monster placement, it's about fun. Barons aren't fun. They're an extended circle strafe.

Also "Optimal" monster placement isn't even a thing, the best monster placement is modular and organic so that the gameplay flows and feels spontaneous and not overly manufactured. When I played through Maximum Doom the best placed monsters were the randomly placed Archviles in the conversion maps precisely because they were not planned around. You don't get that with Barons. You get a monster that's extremely easy to corral and marginalize.

IDK the difficulty of a map from when it's made for BTSX and when the BTSX episode is actually released wildly varies. It'll be harder than E2 I'll say that.

KNIZD's Phobos Anomaly was amazing, except for the final boss and ridiculous waves of enemies (including a type of enemy that wasn't seen in any other part of the game).

>meticulously crafted enemy encounters
I love when people assume this considering that 90% of my monster placement is "yeah I guess that sounds good I'll just shit some of those there" and then playing the map to see if I have fun playing it. I don't like Barons BECAUSE THEY'RE BORING TO FIGHT not because they don't fit into some high level equation where I magically calculate monster attack vectors and come up with the "perfect monster placement" formula.

But you're right, strafe dodging those slow baron fireballs in a uninteresting corridor is just what Doom is all about. Why bother having a gourmet stake? It's too well crafted. McDonalds? That's what food is really about. There isn't too much thought put into it.

Most people understand that in a conversation about a subjective topic, particularly one regarding entertainment that you don't have to preface everything with "I think" and "in my opinion" because it's a waste of time. It's a subjective discussion.

Please tell me what glorious high-level ideas I regularly shit on. In fact I generally praise levels with actual ideas.

Sector plays like dogshit but I pimp that map every chance I get because the idea is so cool, hell most of Xaser's work is full of "rule breaking" shit and he's one of my favorite mappers because he makes interesting maps.

Kassman's map 21 in CC4 is a series of boxes with shit in the middle of them. I love that map. It's theme and setting are more than enough to make up for anything else in it.

That's the only "rule" for mapping, that your map is fun. Be it fun because of really good gameplay or fun because it's really interesting and inventive or fun just because it tickles the player in the right way.

Shit like DTS-T is not "high-level idea" mapping, it's bad mapping. There might have been an idea for a good map, but there wasn't anything resembling a good map in DTS-T. Hallway crawls where I hold down mouse 1 for 10 hours is not "high-level idea mapping".

Why is everyone talking about barons like you always fight them 1 on 1 in a hallway?

I like to use barons in a group of monsters to provide a more constant threat that can't be as easily dispatched as other monsters. Plus, not using barons can detract from other mods that replace barons with something even better; like how GMOTA handles barons.

GMOTA barons, if there's 3 or more, I fear more than cyberdemons, but if someone can't find a way to make barons interesting then there's no need for them to use them because it'll just result in a boring encounter.

There's a nice article written about the subject but I can't manage to find it. What even makes monster combat role/placement a thing is that most but not all doom monsters handle in a pretty unique way relative to each other, and many of them have special gimmicks.

For example archviles force you to take cover while mancubi force you to keep moving, so the player has to keep track of two things at once. Demons, hell knights and barons don't really pose that much of a threat, but they can body block you and deny you mobility and cover from enemies more likely to actually hurt you.

Not the same guy, but every Doom megawad I've played after Scythe 1&2 felt boring. Scythe 2 was my first unofficial megawad and it blew me away. Afterwards I played AV and thought it was really good but not as good as Scythe 2. I then tried Plutonia 2 and again I thought it was very good, but nowhere near as good as Scythe 2.

It's the same general idea as in animation, when you want to make a moment, let's say a punch, have more impact and feel more powerful, the frames in the middle are cut out.

>"Thy" is the old English version of the French "Tu"

No. It's a natively germanic word stemming, in early modern english, from old english "thu" (spelled with the thorn character rather than th), meaning "you".

Ultimately, it comes from proto-germanic "thinaz" (again, with thorn), which makes it a cognate with other germanic "you" words, like german "dein, du", or norwegian "din, du".

It's related to french/romance "tu" only tenuously/"farther up the tree". Both ultimately derive from proto-indo-european "tuh", but to say "thy" is directly related to french "tu" is incorrect. It's more closely related to it's germanic cousins.

>> No.2593581

it aint bad actually
just dont fuck up unwrapping and you will be fine.
also you gotta use photoshop/gimp to join/split textures properly and also you should keep a consistent scale.
wish I wasn't away from home, would post some pics.

lets say you have octagonal room, on the floor you got cobble texture and in the middle of the room there is a torch.
you could generate a normal map from your base texture in any program thats capable of doing that, then make a material in max/blender, and then put a light where torch is. when you bake textures, light will properly shade the floor according to the normal map of the cobbles. you can then open up the baked floor texture in photoshop, split it into 4 equal parts, and then pack them in slade.

I have mentioned earlier that original map is good as projection target. and for beginners its pretty much a must. if you use a different shape, you may get unexpected results such as warped textures or broken perspective.

and a tip, dont jump into max/maya/blender straight away and think that you will learn it overnight. because you will fucking fail. and from your failures you will eventually learn how to make good stuff.

I really wish someone had made a megawad featuring Doom style gameplay.

Less cryptic shit, no esoteric switch or key hunting across hubs, and more lively combat.
I guess more fun enemies and weapons too.

The shotgunners can do you lots of hurt if you're caught off guard and they have the time to let off both barrels, and the riflemen can be either put lots of lead in you up close, or be a terrible nuisance from afar.

I bumped down their damage ever so slightly in Slade, but really, you're just gonna have to get used to the fuckers. For shotgunners you need the reflex of wheeling around immediately to drop them, it's entirely possible for you to be faster than them (at least if you play with mouse, which you SHOULD).
For the riflemen, sort of the same, but they can hurt you from a greater distance, you'll just have to get in the habit of getting into cover, whether that means getting behind a pillar or crouching down below a ledge or in front of a crate or piece of furniture to break their line of sight and to stop their bullets from hitting you.

If you're in the shadow wood hub, then you're looking for 6 square chain looking switches. There are 2 per level off of the hub, 1 you need a key to get and 1 just in the level. I know one of the keys has a stupid requirement to get, you have to fall into a hole in one of the passageways in the cave level to open up doors leading to the key in the brown level. Also, one of the switches is indeed behind a statue in the swamp level.

If you're in the shadow wood hub, then you're looking for 6 square chain looking switches. In order to get to them, you need to grab the keys in each of the levels, then go and unlock the doors and find the switches in them. The doors you can't go past lead to the final level of the hub where you fight the boss. The key in the cave has a dumb requirement to get; you have to drop through a hole I think in the easternmost passage near the start and grab the armor and a bunch of doors will open. One of the switches in the swamp level are indeed behind a statue in an area that requires the cave key, I believe.

By the way, a little treat (sort of) for those who have not played actual DOS version of STRIFE. The executable for the game is STRIFE1.EXE, hence the name of the IWAD.

However, running 'STRIFE', it loads a batch file that executes a DOS video player for an intro video, and then launches STRIFE1. Running Strife through a source port lacks this. Its cheesy CGI, but the music is cool.

Looking up and down is easier to implement than the view rotation/translation that "free"look requires.

Eternity if my main choice for traditional gameplay. I like that the original options menu can be emulated, and the software renderer is the best out of any engine, IMO.

For full vanilla compatibility, I would recommend getting the SVN thats dated Jul 29 2014 03:02:27, as for whatever reason later versions have broken the "bullets don't hit floors and ceilings" option, rendering a few maps like Eternal Doom map28 unplayable unless you use the -vanilla command (which also only works with -warp command).

Not natively, but with an external tool like DOSBox's keymapper.

Freelook is bit more complicated than that. It would *kinda* work, but the movement would not be smooth, because it wouldn't interpret the x+y movement simultaneously, and latency between polling would result in stuttery movement.

Just go to options and unbind the middle finger button.
Then open the console and type "bd_classicmonsters 1" then restart the game. This will enable the "Vanilla mode", and will remove all gameplay modifications from monsters.

I gotta say I REALLY like the wolfenstein TC linked in the FAQ

It's alot more faithful than wolfendoom and I applaud it for that. It even has the movement already on for you, in wolfendoom you had to disable viewbob to get that authentic experience.

Anyway I don't know why I love wolfenstein so much, there's just something about it that fascinates me. Or maybe I just like it better than CoD.

Y'know the best Medal of Honors and CoDs were the ones set during WW1 WW2 and Vietnam. Once they started delving into the more modern shit they started going downhill, Black ops one taking place during the cold war was okay but wasn't that good.

All I know is theres just something about WW2 themed games in general that mystify me. Funny how back in the day games based on it were overused now nobody fucking does them at all and I miss it.

I'd much rather shoot at Nazis than generic derka derkas.

Or communists. Shit, you know what would be cool? A Wolfenstein 3D total conversion set in the Soviet Union during the 1950's, you collect treasures and shoot mooks like usual, but this time they're filthy commies instead of filthy nazis, you could even have Stalin as a final boss.

There'd be weapons like Tokarev pistols and PPS-43 subguns (sharing the same ammo pool), a Mosin Nagant rifle in the early levels, old, but they figure it does well enough for simple guard duty in the prison camp you're escaping from, hits hard and is accurate, has a bayonet which hurts, but only holds 5 rounds and you gotta work the bolt between shots.

Later you'd find a more recent SKS rifle as they send reinforcements from an army base to stop you. For heavier dakka, you can find a DP-28, kind of old, but holds 42 rounds in it's pan magazine, making much better use of the ammo you'd otherwise use in the old Nagant while hitting as hard. There'd be the occasional machinegun team manning an old Maxim gun, fortified and puts out lots of lead, you can't take the gun with you, but you could man it or take the belt of ammo and use it for your Nagant or DP-28.

In the final episode/levels you'd actually run into elite troopers armed with brand new AK-47 rifles, sharing ammo pool with the SKS, but holding three times as much ammo, reloading way faster, and is full-auto. Stalin would be armed with two AKs or something (after you've defeated his suit, fitted with 7.62x54r aircraft machineguns).
But also being a Wolfenstein sort of game, you need a high speed machinegun with lots of power, like some sort of Gatling or something else with lots of barrels which looks awesome, one could either draw from existing prototypes and designs of the time, or make something up completely.

There'd also have to be fantastical elements such as occult and magical themes (black magic fits Russia very well), robots and super soldiers.

I think Ultimate Doom is fucking amazing, and Doom 2 is ok, although the levels are a bit mediocre, and slowly slide further down that slope shortly after Tricks and Traps.
I do enjoy maps that use new visuals, mechanics, weapons, etc, but I can never find any that seem to implement them well.
