Its a deathmatch area. Old megawads such as MM2, Requiem, and AV did deathmatch areas, as they felt they "had to" implement all game modes. But they didn't want to butcher an sp/coop map just to make it dm friendly, so many maps contain a completely separate area for dm instead.

what are your opinions on wrack-style kill combos/chains?

I personally dislike those very much. I think Demonsteele might be, hands down for me, the only time I've ever found satisfaction or any hint of interest in keeping a combo in double digits in my entire life playing FPS, or videogames for that matter.

now that I think of it, it's kinda funny to think that some features or popular trends that bug me in current games instantaneously become perfectly fine with me if they're included in some Doom mod. It's almost as if it was the only legitimate way I could ever stomach shit like regenerating health, cover-based gameplay or limited weapon holding. I guess it has a lot to do with the base game itself, but then again I'm biased as fuck and Doom is easily my favorite game of all time.

>> No.2674683

I like them well enough, but they trigger my autism something fierce. Playing Wrack was less of a relaxing fun time and more of an exercise in restarting areas over and over to figure out how to best pinball myself around the room to get that kill counter as high as possible. Demonsteele is much the same way, but it doesn't trigger me as badly because it's just a letter ranking rather than a specific number and it's very much easy come, easy go. I'm happy as long as I can maintain D rank or higher.

following the dw megawad club?

i replayed icarus earlier this year and never figured a consistent way through it either.

i suppose it was from before the "pistol start everything" era so you're assumed to have 200% health/armour from the previous map.

this is also why map28 has no health or ammo - you're assumed to have a full set on entry.

>> No.2674908

Err, Icarus did have balance for pistol starts actually. Map28 is tight on ammo, but it still has enough for pistol starters who who conserve it. The author originally wanted less than half of what it ended up having, but TeamTNT pressured him to increase supplies.

Final Doom, The MMs, Requiem, Hell Revealed, and Eternal Doom had pistol start balance, too. It was mainly noobier mappers of the time that often designed mapsets to require you to play progressively.

>> No.2674916



>Audio created with TFM Music Maker. Instruments ripped from the Lightening Force/Thunder Force IV .vgm/.vgz files using vgm2tfi.

>> No.2674929

sorry for the misunderstanding.

it is true all of icarus can be pistol-started, but i don't believe it was designed that way.

example 1

consider http://doomwiki.org/wiki/MAP28:_Excavations_%28Icarus:_Alien_Vanguard%29#Inspiration_and_development

>I play tested the level until I was completely confident that you pretty much only had enough ammo in the level to half whatever supplies a standard player had leftover from map 27.

IOW author intended you to bring stuff from previous maps. it is of course possible to pistol start but wasn't specifically intended.

example 2

i can't find it right now but there was a blurb written by the author of memento mori map27 in which he stated that at the point of reaching his map you are likely to have all the weapons already. it might be in mminfo.zip but the contents is indecipherable without running a DOS executable and i can't be bothered right now.

>> No.2674965

>it is true all of icarus can be pistol-started, but i don't believe it was designed that way.

There's a world of a difference between being designed specifically for pistol starts, and being balanced for pistol starts. The whole point behind pistol start balance is so that players who don't use saves are not at an unfair disadvantage for losing their accumulated weapons on death.

>IOW author intended you to bring stuff from previous maps. it is of course possible to pistol start but wasn't specifically intended.
I already addressed this in the post you replied to. You should read further

i believe you have read something into the part you quoted that isn't there. his father and the rest of the team said nothing about pistol starts, just that his map was too devoid of ammunition.

>> No.2674996

Regardless of them not specifically mention pistol start balance, There is literally no logical reason behind them pressuring him about supplies outside of pistol start balance. If the whole team really wanted it to be about it supplies from previous maps, I doubt they'd have had any problems with what he was doing in the first place.

>> No.2675047

>There is literally no logical reason behind them pressuring him about supplies outside of pistol start balance

i'm sorry but that is nonsense. your "logical reason" is pure speculation. the known facts are the author's statements we have both quoted, namely that:

(1) the rest of the team considered the map too hard and insisted it have more resources added to it, and the author wouldn't do it so eventually his father had to, and

(2) he playtested the map starting from "whatever supplies a standard player had leftover from map 27"

(2) is clear evidence of the intention of continuous play. (1) says nothing to back up your claim of intended pistol starts.

so unless you can produce any other evidence (such as testimony from a teamtnt member who actively worked on icarus playtesting) i suggest the matter is settled.

>> No.2675051 [DELETED] 

>the rest of the team considered the map too hard

Hang on, you call me out for speculation, and now you're doing exactly the same thing.

>> No.2675062

fair enough, "there wasn't enough ammunition in the level" is not necessarily "the level is too hard". however, it doesn't invalidate my point.

>> No.2675075

>the rest of the team considered the map too hard and insisted it have more resources added to it

If pistol start balance was never part of the equation as you say, then what was so hard? Surely the accumulated resources from the previous maps, as the map author intended and initially balanced his map around, would have sufficed?

>is clear evidence of the intention of continuous play.
>says nothing to back up your claim of intended pistol starts.

I never claimed they intended pistol starts. I claimed they balanced pistol starts. Only the map's author was clearly not interested in pistol start balance. Nothing says the whole team wasn't interested.

I think it was because it was limited to the Mac audience, and the even smaller userbase that knew about/cared about games on them. Nowadays it's because of a "muh purity" source port developer who refuses to do something like have higher-precision mouselook.

I'd start with 1 only if you want to follow the story from the beginning. 2's got the better singleplayer.

Yeah, the art was pretty crude at first, pretty clearly meant for a sub-640x480 screen. Every single art asset was done by a single guy, hand drawing everything without the help of physical models. 2 and Infinity improve a lot on it in every way.

Low gravity makes for some cool shit, actually. Like propelling yourself around rooms with a flamethrower, juggling, grenade/rocketjumping and air "steering" much like Quake's airstrafing. It pioneered a lot of stuff, like altfiring weapons and dual-wielding. 1 may not be the most polished game, but I think if you get past the mouse controls and art, it's a great time.

Virgin playthrough of Plutonia on UV completed, every level done from an autosave, no saving otherwise.

I'm assuming this is my bad tactics or otherwise noobishness (I'm a slow player, and most of my playthrough was very methodical), but I actually winded up using Plasma over BFG. It has proven reliable as a "lead" weapon to use when entering a new room - with Plutonia's fondness of traps and in-your-face portals, I didn't want to use SSG (too difficult to take out spread enemies like Chaingunners), CG (weak damage), RL (could kill myself by accident) and BFG has a windup time. So, I always barged in everywhere with Plasma Rifle in hand. I used BFG pretty sparingly, actually, mostly on Map 29, 30 and 32.

That was a fun ride, as incompetent as I was, and I'm tempted to pick up something on a similar level for the next Doom fix.

That ain't a stretch, that's practically the same plot.

Only difference is that System Shock's third game decided to go underwater and trade cybernetics for petticoats.

Ok but here's the thing

In System Shock when a character says something is happening you get to then see that thing happen and probably participate in it.

In Marathon when a character says something is happening it could usually be appended with "No really, I'm actually doing it! Over here! Offscreen! It's totally happening and I can see it and wow! Go kill some more aliens!"

>> No.2676570

The first Marathon is actually better about this. It has three characters and they're all computers, so they can be "doing something" and you see the effects in the form of map sector triggers. The sequels are much more grating because you're supposed to be interacting with actual people, so it has to use lame contrivances to keep them from ever talking to you in person.

I don't think the point of story should matter if it impacts gameplay at all. In fact, if it does impact gameplay, it tends to be in a negative way.
A story should be a framing device, not a set of "interactive" cutscenes take take up time while you stand around or run around the room, waiting for someone's audio clip to finish--which is especially where Half Life and Half Life 2 are drug down.

Funny you should bring up Dark Souls. Because you can go through without any sort of shits about the story and not have it hamper your enjoyment at all. You can skip through the dialogue boxes, get the weapons, fight the things, and not care about anything.

Unlike another game that, say, would lock you in a place until you finish the audio dialogue that they're telling you.

Not that guy but I've worked for game studios (not something I recommend) and the teams that would build the game first and add the story afterwards were the ones that actually shipped. The teams that thought of themselves as auteurs, that wrote a bunch of cutscenes and paid no attention to the actual game, would almost never ship. And when they did, nobody bought their games. Mostly they were fired and their teams were dissolved. Dark Souls can perhaps get away with some things (I haven't played it) but it's the exception, not the rule.

Well, it will mostly have stupid shit like this.

As it's a HQ map, it will have a huge focus on exploration. And some rooms might, as you said, 'punish' the player, but without the Earrape. Using more of a "What the hell happend to this place" kinda scare then a "Ooh, 2spooky4me monster pooped out" scare.

Marathon suffers from not having enough sharp minds left in their community to make a sourceport that isn't a trial for normal human beings to use. Everything's hardpegged to 30fps without Zdoom's interpolation magic, the default FOV makes even console players genuinely ill, there's no pausing or in-game menu, and IIRC turning off automatic weapon-switching violently desynchs netplay forever.

And nobody's willing or able to change or fix any of this. Hell, sometimes they UN-fix things - reimplementing previously-removed limits and breaking lots of mods in the process because fuck you, for example.

That isn't the point.
The point is one of the reasons the community has been focusing a lot of PRBoom+ or vanilla-compatible maps is because of maximum compatibility with a wide variety of different source ports. It can run in ZDaemon, Zandro, ZDoom, PRBoom+, or more.
Tricks that only work in one singular port is going to really limit its widespread usage. Likewise, see also how limited the ZDoom mapping scene has become--people aren't making them as much since only a fraction of the community would play them.

I hope you made it challenging and made interesting combat situations with the various combinations of Quake's enemies and level design anon!

I also hope you made use of Quake's verticality as that was one of the things I liked most about Quake! I also hoped you built it with the philosophy of having to watch your step, as Quake often had you walk down narrow ledges with drops or lava on either side!

What I said in the quake thread in /v/

The first level in episode 2 is probably my favorite. You've got to dodge and weave through zombies for the first half of the level, the player get's the double barrel early and has to use it to push past zombies in a claustrophobic catacomb area, then depending on how clever the player is, they can either proceed into the final area and take on a pair vores with low armor and a doublebarrel, or if they find the secret grenade launcher, they can work there way back through the undercroft and pick up some red armor, both of which really help out against the vore because of the way I have there room designed

The level is basically the player breaking into the walled city of Nercross, one of the cities that's long been annexed by Yig's forces. So the players starts in a small outside area, enters into an underground area, fights through a section of catacomb, and finally the player comes up on the inside of the outer gate and tangles with the two vores as a sort of boss encounter.

>> No.2678016

It's hard as balls. I never built in multiple difficulty so it's just hard all the time.

I'm running through the first episode now. I designed the levels with the previous levels in mind. So picking up weapons and taking care of your armor and health and not just slugging it out with enemies makes later areas easier.

Level two has you branching off a central hub getting the keys to get through the main security bulk head between you and the gate facility. My favorite part of that level is the nailgun room/hound kennel. Pretty typical trap room where opening the cage with the nail gun also opens up cages with 5 hounds in them, 2 seconds after the cages open, I have a ogre warp into the lead out hall the parol route into the room. Giving the effect of the ogre coming to check out the noise. Because of the shape of the room, the player will almost certainly be looking in that direction when he comes in.

Another video that tell us nothing straight up. The mention of Clan Arena implies there isn't a weapon limit. The fact they don't mention Duel, and them showing it in the Snapmap presentation looks like it's them saying they don't care for 1v1 but people can mod it in if they want.

That is awesome.

The interview that whole series of videos is taken from happened during E3 so it's not going to contain anything new. That should hopefully be the last of it though, they've made videos for all their key points now.

I might be slowpoking here but on the Doom site this guy shows up briefly in the SnapMap section. It's either an early version of the Mancubus or some kind of heavy-armor version. It's got the same guns and lower body but the upper body and head are different than the current version. It goes by so fast and the head is so weird I thought it was an Arachnotron at first.

Considering the SnapMap graphics used on the page don't match the E3 version either I think it's likely those and this Mancubus are just previous iterations. (The Imps, however, match their current design and that area seems to be what was used in the "Demon Battle" part of the E3 SnapMap video.)

Fuck you fmodex

Sadly I noticed that whenever I access a secret area it makes a clown horn sound. I'm starting to believe the crashes happened whenever I entered the secret area. I shall investigate.

I've been looking for the guy who created this specific remix but I can't find this anywhere on youtube or...well anywhere else. I grabbed this from a sound thread back when embedded sound files used to be allowed but I never found the source.


Anyone have any clues?
