I think Demon Eclipse might be what you're looking for

the plot centers around a random marine in a UAC base somewhere on earth I think, and its timeline is supposed to take place at the exact same time as original Doom's plot iirc

the running speed is considerably slower if you're playing on EX, sprinting in the actual game is much faster

for example, you'll have some trouble grabbing the blue keycard by straferunning through the ledge in MAP07, I know I did because I was the only retarded kid back then who thought that was the only legit way to get it instead of hitting the switch in the room in the computer maze that came afterwards and then wondered why it wouldn't work and why sometimes a bridge would rise up and sometimes it wouldn't

now that I recall, it actually makes sense now that a wall lowered down to reveal a megasphere afterwards

I still got the plasma gun earlier than I was supposed to, so I guess it wasn't that stupid of an idea

I do fucking love the Spidermind replacement in SUAB, there's nothing else quite like it in terms of feel and presence.

Like your character is really supposed to react with "What the shit was that?!" when hearing the otherworldly (Beach Boy) noises, and that when he actually sees it for the first time, he'll practically freeze and just howl in wide eyed horror at what he's looking at, and that even if he gets out of this alive, he'll never be -quite- the same again. Oh sure he'll readapt to life, but sometimes he'll remember it, stop in his tracks and shudder terribly, before going back to whatever it is that he's doing.

Map20 actually took me about 35 minutes. I anticipated it to be longer, but you can just stroll through canyons, which were pretty straightforward.

map15 took me around 40 minutes, though I imagine about 5-10 minutes of that was me getting lost, heh.

map25 took me about an hour. Surprisingly easy to navigate, despite its nonlinearity, though, so it was more the monsters themselves that took my time.

map31 is also pretty enourmous. And its a slaughtermap on top of that. Took me an hour and 15 minutes.

Times for 25 and 31 are excluding reloads. 15 and 20 were done without saves, though.

>I guess for most people, no matter how fun a map is, if it isn't detailed, it doesn't qualify as good.

Here's another instance where, depending on how you apply the word "detailed," depends on how people will answer the question. Do I like geometric rooms with walls of the same textures? No. Is it necessary? No. Do I like rooms with a bit of detail to make it pop more? Yes. Is it necessary? No.

My own personal belief is that detail can add more ambiance and atmosphere while also adding to gameplay elements, so for me, detailing IS somewhat important.

If you're talking about superfluous linedefs that add another crimp in an already crimp upon crimp of another sector; then yeah, that shit is very unnecessary. For example: something like BTSX, I feel they have a lot of extra details that are just there to look fancy; however, removing them wouldn't affect the gameplay at all, only the eye-candy.

Doom multiplayer is a fickle bitch.
Mostly, there's little shits who run around on the more popular mods.
>Ghouls vs Humans
You pick a side, a class, and try to kill the other side. Used to be really good before people started cramming in way too many classes on each side for it to be balanced. It's still fun though, and the servers will regularly pop up.
>Megaman 8-bit DM (MM8BDM)
Is honestly a fantastic TC that allows you to play as damn near anyone in the MM universe with lots of great MM-style maps to play with. The only problem is that these servers are usually infested with the worst kind of players that will try to boot you if you start doing better than them.
>All Out War (AOW)
It's the CoD/Battlefield of Doom; simply put. There's a bunch of classes and a lot of different combat roles you can fill, even with some support/utility classes, destructable building objectives, pilotable mechs/aircraft, and a lot of people get mad at Shock Trooper being OP.
>zDoom Wars
This used to get played more, but not as much anymore. It's RTS Doom-style. You've got simple tech trees, you plop down monsters, and then hope they attack the other guy zooming around plopping down monsters. It's still pretty fucking fun though.
>Internal Conflict
You play as the monsters of Doom and try to kill the other players who are monsters of Doom. It's gotten a revival recently that changes a lot of the dynamics so it's less campy and more actiony. This one is starting to pop up a lot more now than in the past.
>Wrath of Cronos (WoC)
You've got various classes: cleric, necro, ranger, warrior, mage. Each has its own branching skill trees, there's alchemy, leveling up, skill/stat points, and all that other good shit that comes with standard RPGs of the 2000s. It's some fun stuff, but it gets a little ridiculous with too many people. Cleric OP as shit too.

Part 2

A murder mystery mod with super detailed maps (imo a little over detailed but w/e) where one player gets picked as the killer after 20-30 seconds and has to kill the other players. The killer can switch colors and has other tricks and traps to kill them. The other players have to figure out who to trust and try to not kill the wrong person. The whole mod is fucked though because Eric's dickass found out you can just pipe everyone and wait to see who heals since innocents take less dmg from other innocents and the killer would have to heal or die, so as long as people don't go whacking everyone with pipes it can be fun.
Doesn't get played as much anymore, but when it came out everyone was all over it. You have a gun with two firing modes, and you try to push other players off the platforms. You have a double jump, rocket jump, and a built in wall-hack to find/get away from other players. It's a lot of fun but usually a core group of people play it.
>Shotgun Frenzy (SF)
My personal favorite of Doom multiplayer mods. This one seems to be dying down more now, but it's like a base building defense + slaughterwad. There's a commander seat where someone buys buildings and can place turrets/health packs/ammo/all sorts of shit for the people on the ground, and then you can run around on ground shooting the fucktons of demons that come through. Damn it's fun.
>that one zombie mod
I have no idea what this is, but apparently it has to do with that one zombie. I believe it won all the cacowards one year; don't quote me on that though. This might be those "horde" servers, but I don't join them so I don't know.

a level originally from 1996. essentially a switch hunt in a maze, but disguised well. the texturing constantly varies, every area is themed differently.

For commands without sprites, use TNT1 A 0 as the sprite entry.

The basic format for all decorate code is SpriteNameHere FrameNameHere Duration A_CodeCommand.
TNT1 is the name of the sprite (which comes packed in ZDoom as a blank sprite), with A being the frame (again, packed in ZDoom). It lasts for 0 tics, so it executes instantly, and you do your A_CodeCommand right afterwards.

Samsara has been around since the Skulltag days, so when BJ's extra life activated Buddha mode on him, it was pretty much expected that only ZDoom would ever get to experience it.

Buddha mode (prevents player health from falling below 1%, no matter how much damage is dealt) wasn't implemented until Zandronum 2.0 and is the mechanism used by BJ's extra lives. Prior to this it was extremely unlikely that the life would trigger because BJ would have to be reduced to really low health but not killed, so to compensate if it did activate BJ got a free megasphere on top of his teleport to safety. Now that Buddha mode is in, extra lives trigger 100% of the time and BJ is impossible to kill if he gets even one.

I'm among those that thinks KDiZD is detailing at the expense of playability. And the maps are SO long that you quickly lose all reference to the originals other than the occasional iconic room. I dunno, I don't like superlong wannabe "epic" maps in general, but KDiZD often gave me the feeling of "what, ANOTHER area?" that made the levels a slog without a sense of progression 'cause you're just blindly going down the rabbit hole.

>> No.2597725

You gotta play them for what they are, not for the similarities or references to the original Knee-Deep in the Dead even though it's supposed to be a recreation.
Besides the HUGE maps and heavy backtracking (which, like I've said, I enjoy), I think they are very well designed. The final areas of Z1M8 and Z1M10 are absolutely bullshit, though.
Dunno, I felt like I was actually progressing through the levels. Get this key, go to that previous area to access to a new one, then activate this switch and go through another that just opened (maps usually have a camera screen that shows the door you just unlocked)... There was not only mindless progression but also exploration and in many cases heavy ammo convervation.

There's IWad files that contain everything in an entire game except the engine, and PWads which add to or override IWads.

Brutal Doom is a mod that causes shitstorm over here every time its mentioned, and you should not play it.
Chocolate doom is a sourceport, you need sourceports to play doom on modern systems, chocolate is one of them and its purpose is to make doom emulation as close to original game as possible, its great for playing first time.
GZdoom is another sourceport that does all this fancy graphical effects, you use it mostly to play mods.

The Ultimate Doom is the full first game with an additinal fourth episode. Doom 2 is just that. The Final Doom are two fan-made campaigns for Doom 2 that were released commercially together, with some custom textures and music. They're generally the hardest of the bunch.

Start out playing the first three episodes of Ultimate Doom (episode 1 is the shareware one, and the best by far), then either episode 4 or just play Doom 2 before that. Use the Chocolate Doom for an authentic experience or GZDoom for all the modern bells and whistles.

I swear to god I predicted Dark Doom years before it happened.

When I was a kid I had nightmares of Doom where it was dark and you needed a flashlight to see.

all the monsters looked sorta like their 64 counterparts but a bit more like their doom counterparts...the best way I can describe them were real-life sort of...paintings, models. i don't fucking know. of what they would look like in real life.

Playing dark doom unfortunately reminds me of these horrifying nightmares.
I love it.

Y'know i'm curious now, was anyone else here scared by doom as a kid? did you have nightmares? was it something in particular or were you just scared to be scared?

Me personally I was just scared to be scared, then again it may have also been the dark portions of the map, Those close quarters with the disturbing monsters. Seems likely given my nightmares were darkness based.

Yeah, it's really easy to overlook stuff. What you've got in this case is a lack of S_START and S_END markers around the sprites.

Scenario 1: (mild)

You put wad_x in your skins folder.
You get so used to it being there you forget about it.
Some time later you try out a new thing named mod_y. It breaks, so you go to the author and report "it's broken".
The author is totally confused as he cannot reproduce your report.
After a few back and forths of increasing frustration it is realised by either you or the author of mod_y that the reason it broke was because it has some clashing definition with wad_x.
This happens a few more times, after which mod_y author writes a FAQ which nobody reads. misreporting continues, mod_y author eventually gets very tired, and stops modding.

Scenario 2: (a worse case, which can develop from scenario 1)

You put wad_x in your skins folder.
You think it's the best thing ever and never take it out. You can't play anything without it.
Some time later you try out a new thing named mod_y. It breaks, so you go to the author and report "it's broken".
The author is totally confused as he cannot reproduce your report, but eventually realises what's going on and says "yes, it doesn't work with wad_x"
You whine about this loudly and in public. "mod_y is shit, it doesn't work with wad_x"
This happens a lot of times. If mod_y's author doesn't rage-quit modding completely, he starts adding tests to mod_y and anything else he makes to detect wad_x and "engage Terry mode" if found.

What happens is that "not liking anime" is a well known trait and a setup post for one (of many asshats) to start shitposting against our threads.

It has to do with Demonsteele which features an artstyle that barely resembles anything animey but it's enough for people to throw a fit.

So, basically, keep killing eyes until the blob thing eats or absorbs or whatevers you (I'm not really sure what triggers it, but it's probably just killing a lot of eyes). The floor in this room deals constant damage, so you need to act quick. Make your way between the pillars and find the core. Once it's in your line of sight, shoot it with the charge shot as much as possible. Afterwards, it's back to fighting eyes for a while. Do that a bunch of times and you should kill the fucker.

Goldsource mapper from last night here, I have some newbie questions because I know fuck all about Doom engine.

Why does ZDoom have the most comprehensive wiki?
Is it the first source port that built the foundation for modding?
Are wads/mods dependent on Doom/Doom II or is source port client the only requirement? Do I build my wad/mod from Doom or Doom II?
Can I use waveform for music, or is the engine limited to midi?

>> No.2599956

>Are wads/mods dependent on Doom/Doom II or is source port client the only requirement? Do I build my wad/mod from Doom or Doom II?
In one way, yes, in another way, no.
Aka, look into Gloome, it's pretty much GZDoom, but it's easier to set up your own independent game on it, and can even be used to sell a game commercially because all the legally problematic code is taken out.

>> No.2599958

>Why does ZDoom have the most comprehensive wiki?
Because it's been built up for fucking decades.

>Is it the first source port that built the foundation for modding?
Nope, modding's been in since the beginning. ZDoom just became the most powerful for modding because a whole ton of features.

>Are wads/mods dependent on Doom/Doom II or is source port client the only requirement?
This depends entirely on the mod. If you make a mod making new weapons, then you'll probably still need the Doom monsters to shoot at and levels to go through.
Or you could make everything completely new ever and not have to bother with the iwads at all.

>Do I build my wad/mod from Doom or Doom II?
Either or. Doom II is generally the go-to because it has the most weapons and enemies.

>Can I use waveform for music, or is the engine limited to midi?

That honor goes to Boom I think.
>Are wads/mods dependent on Doom/Doom II or is source port client the only requirement? Do I build my wad/mod
Virtually all mods require Doom2.wad since few of them replace every single sprite and texture from the original game. You can also use FreeDoom (free replacement of everything, ...varying quality) if you don't want to pirate or buy doom2 for whatever reason.

>Can I use waveform for music, or is the engine limited to midi?
You can use wav, mp3, ogg, and midi that I know of. Use ogg if you don't mind to spare yourself from anti-mp3 whining.

>> No.2599976

Doom has supported mods from the start. ZDoom merely expanded upon how much people could do, and how easily it could be done. ZDoom has two scripting languages, ACS and DECORATE, and between the two there's a lot of stuff to document.

You can make completely standalone mods, if that's your thing. Most are made for Doom 2 simply because it has the most mapsets and therefore the most possible combinations for the mod. NEVER modify Doom/Doom2.wad directly. That's not just bad practice, it's illegal. In fact, SLADE won't even let you save changes you make to an IWAD if you try.

ZDoom supports almost any sound format you can think of. It'll even run SNES and I think Genesis tracks natively.

Yeah, triangles like that are one of the ways you can do them.You can also set an entire sector to slope towards one of it's lines/faces. In gzdoom you can make sloped 3dfloors (room-over-room) even.

Nah, it doesn't affect framerate much at all AFAIK. The collision code isn't that good though, and monsters don't like navigating them.

I'm not fond of Dredd but it's nice to see they updated their MC-1 map so that it doesn't take up the entire east half of the U.S. For fuck sake that entire area right now, is populated by 200 million people. That's literally half the population of MC-1 in about the same area as the old map.
Here's a picture of what you get with 200 million people in that area... as you can see it's a struggle to survive already in such sprawling skyscrapers packed ass to face... Oh wait. Population density is a thing. The new map now squishes 400 million in an area closer to New England. Which still would only really produce a giant area about normal city densities if at actually spread throughout that size area. Not mega skyscrapers literally lining the sky.

>Are all Doom wads designed around pistol starts?
The iwads, and most quality pwads are. Pistol start balance is generally so that people who don't use saves, are not at an unfair disadvantage if they die and restart.

>Any notable examples of wads that aren't?
Dimensions of Time. Map07 is notoriously hard to pistol start because of this. Can't think of any others, as its generally considered an amateurish mistake to not take pistol starts into account when balancing.

I do know that the author behind Icarus map28 originally intended for the map to have almost no ammo, forcing the player to rely on resources they obtained through previous levels. However, the rest of TeamTNT rejected the idea, as it would not be pistol start friendly.

So blame your own people for that. There typically three major naming schemes for places around here, Native American names, French names, and English names. What names aren't outright descriptors of the place are named after places that are descriptors.
Also, Bristol is from Bridgestow... which means assembly place near a bridge. That's how language works.

Blame the fact that Nintendo didn't think of simply putting a warning on the box that the game had blood and gore (like Splatterhouse 2 on Genesis did [pic related, red text on the bottom left], which came out in '92 while the SNES version of Wolf3D came out in '94). ESRB ratings didn't go into effect until September 1st of 1994 either, however I found this bit of info on the ESRB's Wikipedia page under its "formation" section that better explains why Nintendo requested that the game be censored instead:

"During the hearings, Howard Lincoln and Bill White (chairmen of Nintendo and Sega's U.S. divisions respectively) attacked each other's stances on objectionable content in video games; Lincoln condemned Sega for even releasing Night Trap and felt it "simply has no place in our society", while White argued that Sega was more responsible to consumers because they actually had a rating system in place, rather than a blanket presumption that all its games would be suitable for general audiences."

Basically, Nintendo of America's chairman at the time wanted every game to be as Family-Friendly as possible somehow. Nothing new though. Thankfully they manned up after the ESRB went into effect and the SNES version of Doom that came out in '95 wasn't censored, since it got an M rating.

ZDoom has autosaves, so maps made for it generally can get away without pistol start balance. Though I imagine the levels in UTNT were balanced for pistol starting, because some of the episodes are literally one big map.

I constantly had really weird meta-dreams about Doom where I was trapped in the game, but I knew it was a game.

The nightmare would start when I would run into enemies that could modify the game itself. I think the worst one was, I was stuck in a small room with these terrifying creatures, and absolutely mortified. Like crying and running in my dream, so I thought to just bring up the menu/pause - but one had the ability to keep unpausing it. So I had a slow-motion slideshow towards my demise.

It would be fun to make a Doom level that fucks with you in weird ways like that, but I'm not sure where to start. And how much people would appreciate it if it did anything outside the game itself - or if that's even possible with zDoom without modifying the executable.
