I haven't played it all the way through since before the third episode was released, but I never had any problems with any class. Despite Yholl's intentions, DRLA still lacks the absolute cruelty roguelikes are known for and in just about any lengthy mapset you end up hilariously overpowered before long.

I mainly recommend GD with DRLA because of the theme of, well, going down. Each level being a single floor fits very well into the whole roguelike thing.

yeah, pretty much this. It' such an all-around awesome shotty, save for the sprites.

Most of the new guns are pretty cool also. Sure brings me back to when I'd just decide I wanted to fuck around with the mod out of boredom and just try and find basically fucking everything in it and flat-out say "what the fuck is this shit?" whenever I found a new gun. It's just that novelty feel all over again.

also, I don't know whether anyone else has tried it out yet or not, but the HP hunting revvie legitimately kicks ass. Managed to one-shot archviles and most skellies throughout maps 03-18 on requiem, and two shot a couple of mancubi from a distance many times as well.

DRLA would benefit from a menu system instead of having to painstakingly construct weapons via application of multiple mods, and having to bind a different key to 'don armor', 'don boots', 'remove armor', 'remove boots', 'blow your nose', 'look at your notepad', 'open up armor information page', 'swap to the OTHER armor information page that actually just tells you all the fluff', etc.

The HP hunting revolver is a gamble. Sometimes it kills a hellknight in two shots, sometimes it does in four. The reload time is also really long which rules it out for slaughtermaps.

DoomRLAv1.0 bug reports / feature requests:

The lack of information available on inventory armors/boots is annoying. Having to switch armor just to get the description of a new one is prohibitive.

Also I have noticed one of the new barrel types, the red one with the hazard sign, explodes and burns for a time, making a burning sound and doing area damage -- but there's no fire sprite visible. I can't think that's intentional.

Also I request

- removable armors with less than 50% damage, and all removable self-repairing armors, are not destroyed when taken off, and

- the ability to un-mod a weapon to swap mod packs around.

Both of which are desirable to facilitate experimentation with items, which is much of the fun of a roguelike. But when armor is constantly destroyed and modpacks lost on use, experimentation is severely inhibited.

I do appreciate being able to drop a weapon and not lose the modpacks on it, though.

I don't think you've played the actual DoomRL. In Doom RL mod packs are permanent and often require thinking ahead (i.e. do I use this pack now, or wait for a better mod, or weapon to use it on?) in their use.

>> No.2695760

>>2695724
Thanks for the information. You're right, I have not played DoomRL. I avoid programs which don't have source. I'm waiting warmly for it to become available.

Anyway, philosophical issues aside, I would like to instead politely request an increase in the frequency of modpack generation. They are far too rare, except perhaps on slaughtermaps which have masses of items. But on such maps, you never get time to apply them.

Perhaps they could appear as deathdrops? Deathdrops are a roguelike thing. Well-- perhaps they already do, if you're playing with the DoomRLA monster pack, but I haven't tried that.

Since it currently has LuaJIT's FFI module enabled, you can use C data types (such as uint8, double, etc) which is useful for optimization.

In addition to that, with some systems that I'll be putting in place, you'll be able to create and modify actor types on the fly.

If you run the engine in "insecure" mode then you can load dll files and gain filesystem access as well, which opens up even more possibilities (although it should be obvious why these features are locked away by default).

There's a bunch of other stuff I'm forgetting, but you get the idea.

Activating an armor in your inventory will allow you to see the stats on the second page. Adding a page to see the flavor text of non-worn armors would be not only a nightmare, but I don't have the space for it.

>but there's no fire sprite visible.
Already fixed for the next update.

I could probably do that, if it's simple enough I could probably get it into the next patch.

>the ability to un-mod a weapon to swap mod packs around.
Technician can take off a random applied modpack from weapons, but the weapon is destroyed in the process. I could maybe add something that allows you to keep the weapon intact as long as only one mod was on it though, we'll see.

>Really really not needed, Technicians can flood the world with modpacks in next to no time. Sorry.
Great if you're playing a Technician, or co-op with another Technician, but otherwise...
Just I've gone through the first 10 maps of TNT as a Scout and all my good weapons are exotic drops from crates and such, which seems odd - you'd think modpacks + standard weapons + self-built assemblies would be more prevalent. But perhaps the real DoomRL is the same way, I don't know.

>Appreciate the feedback, I'll fiddle and see if I can get this stuff done soon for you.

Which is primarily the author himself. I've only seen a handful of users who seem to be mainly bug-testing for him instead of using it for any specific purpose. I mean, who the fuck would want to use Doom RETRO(tm) when there already exists ports that do what it's "supposed to do" except better?

It's like if someone was making their own modifications to an already existing sourceport, then decided to hardcode that shit, and act like he's doing it for some grandiose purpose instead of just making a sourceport for himself. Also, the whole DONATE HERE button leaves a bad taste in some mouths, and any questioning of the purpose of the donation button gets met with deletion/bans. The whole thing is fucking dumb and doesn't need to exist; however, there's users going, "oh man, good job. Keep up the good work.

by the looks of the wiki and git, a lot of effort and details have been put in. looks like you can't see an inch past ur face if you think its just doom + mods slapped on top. the guy has made a sourceport for himself, made it available to others, and there's fuckwits like you shitposting about it coz its not to your taste?? jeez

oh, there's a donate button? oh no! bad taste in your mouth? take the dick out then! i'm guessing you haven't donated! i'd say using the donate button is entirely voluntary. you try out the port, if you like it, and want to donate, then donate. otherwise, go back to playing hdoom one-handed.

I at least like the Duke 3D-style sprite shadows and randomly-mirrored death states. Those are nice and you can't really do them in ZDoom without gross hacks.

I mean, it's easy enough to just flip the sprites and do an A_Jump to an alternate state, but that's a little... I dunno... inefficient, if you get what I mean.

I suppose you could set x scaling on the decorate actor to a negative value, but I think that causes issues with older ZDooms? It's listed as a developer version only trick on the wiki, anyway...

Nah, speaking as a creator, I'm vastly more interested in negative criticism than positive criticism. That's why I love this place. People tell me what I make is shit, they tell me why it's shit, I fix it, and it's a better product because of it.

"what is the point of using this when it can easily be done with something else" is a perfectly legitimate question and is something any fan and creator should be able to answer. this is what we in the business call a "selling point", or "elevator pitch". you need to be able to interest people in your product over your competition.

Good point. I myself like it because of its "feel". It has a bunch of features that just feel right to me.

It doesn't. Instead of having a simple "options" screen, he opted instead to have the user change the config file to make adjustments to shit as simple as keybinds. When it comes to playing Doom without fucking around, there's far better sourceports with less options that still allow you to change shit without having to close/open the game over and over again.

If someone's "getting into Doom," then the last sourceport I would ever recommend would be RETRO DUMP.

What's the point of keeping the old settings menu that does 90% of nothing that Doom can be configured for instead of implementing those things? And don't you dare say "to keep the style!!!" because, not only should functionality never be sacrificed for style, but Doom RETRO™'s tone is so grossly inconsistent that you can have an OpenGL rendered game that displays fast, real-time shadows and has flat decaling (a feature actually worth mentioning) that still asks you whether you want to play in "high or low resolution" and displays in 640x400.

You don't.
Unless there is a decompiler/dissassembler for ACS bytecode (I think someone on the Doomworld forums was working on one at some point), you can't "open" it. Some modders are nice enough to leave the source files in, often in a folder inside the pk3 called "scripts" or "source", or even in the acs folder itself.

You could try to open up the compiled acs in a hex editor, and there might be some strings to give you an idea as to what it does, or look for "puke" options in KEYCONF to see the number for the action you're looking for.

So turning in Doom is really "yaw", and looking up/down is really "pitch", do I have this right? If so, do 3D sourceports like GZDoom have a way for the player to "roll"?

Technically none of these are retro but fuck it here you go nigger

Xonotic is a community continuation of Nexuiz, a free game based off Quake 1 where the creator sold the rights (or at least the names and shit) to a studio named Illfonic who made a shitty CryEngine game that was more like Mario Party: Arena FPS Edition than anything. It's kind of fucking weird on why Illfonic even wanted the name/rights, but their game was dead on arrival anyway and you can't buy the game anymore because Ubisoft.

But yeah Xonotic itself is pretty good though I need to give it another try before giving opinions. Play it anyway.

Open Arena is basically a FOSS clone of Quake 3 with rather low poly skimpy women, anime girls, a guy in a Tux costume, and has an overall more weird atmosphere. Any music that's present is also a bit weird, but yeah it's as close to Q3 as you can go here.

Cube 2 is notable for its in-gameplay level editing of CUBESSSSSSSS and everyone seemingly runs as fast as cars as is. In terms of functionality and stats, the weapons are based off either their Doom or Quake 1-3 equivalents. Everyone is notified of important pickups like Quad Damage and Health Increases and you have damage numbers present on hit. There's also some funky shit like 3D menus if you want them. Worth looking into as a curiosity.

Oh yeah, all the freely available arena shooters for some reason are all weird as fuck.

This is the Infection mode I was talking about. An infinite ammo plasmagun wielding super infected vs a team of slower than usual humans with machinegun and shotgun (killing the mastermind gets you the plasmagun). MM killing a human transforms him into a superfast doublejumping zombie with only gauntlet, human killing zombie turns him back again. Great fun with friends, even if it's a LOT different from VQL.

Played around some more. Creating a match with default settings still has loadouts, global ammo and timers by default, but lets everyone vote on them. Maybe this will change by Tuesday.
There are no official id servers that I can see. Match creation lets you create all modes, and I think all maps, but it doesn't let you make more specific gameplay changes at creation. Rulesets, for example. PQL isn't there, Doublejumping isn't there, instagib with weapons other than rail isn't there, etc. Maybe those will remaing premium features

>>2700825
as far as i can tell the percentage indicator bears little relation to the amount you've actually downloaded. it shoots up to 99% while the file is still being transferred.

it's possible the 99% you see is the amount of data they've uploaded off their file server, which likely has far more bandwidth than your own connection, and thus most of the data is still in transit. it then gets stuck at 99% while it waits for your client to inform it it has received the entire file.

in short, you should probably just ignore the percentage and wait for longer, it'll complete eventually.

personal opinion: mega is an absolutely horrible website, which i really wish people wouldn't use. everything it does requires running massive amounts of clientside javascript, so in order to get a file you have to use a fully-featured web browser and let their code do god only knows what on your system. you can't use dedicated download programs like wget for example. i really wish people wouldn't use mega.

be quicker on your feet, get behind walls and stuff. have the chaingun out, and ping them to stop them firing. there's quite a long delay before they start again, during which you can ping another one. this way you can stop three or more zombies from attacking you.

just to emphasise this.

the chaingun is IMO better for fighting zombies than the shotguns.

for fighting projectile throwers the shotgun is fine because you can dodge the fire while the weapon is reloading.

for hitscanners you cannot do this so instead you spray them with bullets to keep them in pain state (which is easy, they have a low pain chance) and prevent them from firing back at you.

>compat_hitscan (CVAR)
>If enabled, the original Doom code for hitscan attacks is used. This reintroduces two bugs which makes hitscan attacks less likely to hit. The first is that it is a monster's cross-section, rather than its bounding box, that is used to check for impact; this makes attacks with a limited range (especially melee attacks) unlikely to hit very wide monsters. The second is the blockmap bug: if an actor crosses block boundaries and its center is in a different block than the one in which the impact happens, then there is no collision at all, letting attacks pass through it harmlessly.

Imps to ghouls, more grey and spindly
Demon becomes Werewolf
