Doom solidified the image of Doom as a fast paced over the top action game with extreme enemies. Doom 1 is more low key. Episode 1 has some horror elements which were pretty much dropped.

As for maps, some are great, some are awful. I think there's too many bland ones though.

Enemies are a mixed bag. Chain gunners are like shotgun former humans on steroids and 10x as annoying. I don't think they should have been added to the series. Shotgun former humans occupy the same role, but are more balanced. Most of the rest of the new enemies are pretty good.

i don't agree but i think they're too robust. i think they should almost always die to a single shotgun blast. they're only possessed human bodies after all.

lost souls have the same problem, too sturdy. pain elementals could be used much more freely if their spawns didn't take as much ammo to dispose of.

ie rocket launcher with plentiful ammo, hitscan, and none of the draw backs. Kind of breaks the game. Enemies melt after 2-4 hits with it.

>> No.3128813


Some of the other changes, not so much. they slowed enemies down a bit. I think it's to compensate for using a clunkier gamepad to play with. The Revnants get half-speed and turn into a total joke. They were probably a bit too fast in the original. But with their new found arthritis they sease to be a threat.

TNT is basically "we want to make something as good as Doom2 but bigger and grander" You can see the seeds of pwads like Eternal Doom in it.

Plutonia is more like "Okay Doom2 was far too easy so I and my brother are going to make a bunch of levels and if we find them too easy we will make them harder" Its focus was entirely on challenge.

Chronologically it comes after Doom2 and was advertised as making both previous games "seem like a walk in the park" (Ever since its release Doom had received much criticism about how easy it was even on the hardest skill - hence Nightmare being added)

The biggest problem devs made with Doom 2 was not splitting it into episodes like the original game. Having 30 (well, 32, but yknowwadimean) levels straight means you have to ramp up challenge level gradually and progressively, while scaling it with respect to the different game difficulty levels. This proved to be very messy and resulted in the notoriously dragging and monotonous levels of the later game.

GUN GODZ MAIN GAME HAS BEEN FINISHED. Only thing left now to do is a new HUD and a skin.


Important changes include:

have to say i feel quite sorry for you! i found plenty of joy in the process of maxing every plutonia level from a pistol start on UV. i found it very satisfying to finally conquer each one and cross it off the list. i do this with pretty much all maps, there are very few that i give up trying to play outright (usually because i find them impossibly hard, even on hntr). i can find joy in almost any doom map. this is also why i will never run out of wads, because i tend to play maps several times until i know them inside out.

i think the next thing to do is go back to the start and go through the blue door there. then you go up through some wood, green bricks, jump down a ledge, find a sewer, (go to one end to raise stairs where you just jumped down), go to the other end to find some more machinery and computers, keep following your nose until you find a wood lift, the yellow key is then on the central of three platforms, jump off the lift to reach it

Right, so, I was playing DemonSteele, and Shihong's punches were reaching super far for a while. Like, ludicrously far, and they were stunlocking most things. It felt a little strong, but then suddenly, I'm not sure exactly when or why, they stopped reaching super far.

The only thing I can potentially attribute this to was some kind of red icon with numbers under it that used to be at the top left of my screen but isn't anymore.

>> No.3130619

Also if you're digging a trench, you're most likely going to be able to see above the trench, into the trench, so it might pay to have all the undug sections of trench with their floors raised, so it looks flat when you look down on it (instead of looking like a trench with a whole bunch of mid textures along it)

Then just add a Floor_lowerbyvalue command into your wall breaking script, so the floor lowers in the section of trench you just dug. make it fast and slap a sound sequence on that sector so it sounds like earth moving instead of a platform going down. This is real easy to do in Hexen (just use sound sequence 8 for earth), but I'm not sure about doom format...

maybe advertisement wasn't the right word for that, but more along the lines of 'public awareness' of the game. say what you will about repeatedly slamming the design for the cover itself being everywhere but it helps with people being, you know, let aware that the game exists.

I've tried the older editors and they work pretty much just as well- I've got a bit of CAD/CAM experience so making 3d things using 2d planes is nothing new to me, there's no real preference in editor choice beyond 'which ones have the most comfortable keyboard shortcuts'- and have no problems working with the tools, the problem is opening up a blank slate and saying, I don't know what to do.

I get grand little ideas for set pieces and then either draw them or stash them in a test map (assuming they work, which they don't always as I'm still discovering various engine limitations I don't have the means to get around without delving deeper into coding than I'd like to, so instead it becomes a logical thinking exercise on how to work around those limitations with the functions at hand) and then have no way to string everything together.

His Doom 2 maps are great considering they come later in the game and correspond to different ideas. The reason people dislike them is that they're much longer and more intricate, but that makes sense considering levels 1-7 are sort of introduction (compare it with Knee-Deep in Dead).

The problem with Doom 2, like the other Anon mentioned, is that it's built as one big episode despite the way in which it's conceptually designed as 3-4 different episodes. So you get the fun linear ride of maps 1 to 7, then Tricks and Traps which is kind of a concept map, then a Romero map, and then "episode 2" hits you like a ton of bricks in The Pit.

Pretty much this. I believe its because some textures aren't fully finalised, alongside the fact that not all of them are out to the public eye.

He's just an asshole, including to people that made the things he used in his mod, which is the only part that really matters. The "he told someone to kill hisself!!!!" and the "nigger" in the code are neither here nor there.

The only unforgivable thing about nigger in the code is the fact that he can't write anything but spaghetti code, and then when he actually writes a comment in the code it's just to put something inane like that in there.

The wanting to use real gore in the mod thing was in bad taste, but again not that big of a deal. It was the fact that he was so excited about it that made it weird.

GZDoom has much worse efficiency with voxel rendering than ZDoom, but doing the rendering with the GPU and thus freeing up the CPU for game logic and spaghetti-decorate will probably give you a head start from the beginning. I have no idea how voxels compare to md3s in gzdoom though.

>> No.3132261


No, you need the quotes when the sprite is ####.

#### is reserved for printing the sprite last used. Here's an example of how to utilize it:

ACTOR RandomJunkPiece
TNT1 A 0 NoDelay A_Jump(256,1,2,3,4,5,6)
Goto Loop
Goto Loop
Goto Loop
Goto Loop
Goto Loop
"####" "#" 350
"####" "#" 1 A_FadeOut(0.1,1)

The above actor, at spawn, randomly jumps to one of six frames where it 'sets' the sprite it's going to use, then uses it during the Loop and Fade states, eliminatneed for separate states for JUNKA, JUNKB, etc.

Another great use of this is in tandem with A_SpawnItemEx's SXF_TRANSFERSPRITEFRAME flag, which you can see in action in Legendoom, for example.

>> No.3132282


Legendoom uses the "####" reserved sprite name to spawn the glowing effect spawned by legendary weapons. Here is a somewhat simplified example of how it works:

ACTOR PistolPickup: CustomInventory
TNT1 A 0 A_SpawnItemEx("GlowyEffect",0,0,0,0,0,1,0,SXF_TRANSFERSPRITEFRAME)
TNT1 A 0 A_GiveInventory("PistolWeapon")

ACTOR ShotgunPickup: CustomInventory
TNT1 A 0 A_SpawnItemEx("GlowyEffect",0,0,0,0,0,1,0,SXF_TRANSFERSPRITEFRAME)
TNT1 A 0 A_GiveInventory("ShotgunWeapon")

ACTOR GlowyEffect
Alpha 0.85
RenderStyle "Stencil"
StencilColor "Red"
"####" "#" 1 Bright A_FadeOut(0.1,1)

Even though both PistolPickup and ShotgunPickup spawn the same actor, GlowyEffect will take on the sprite frame of its spawner as a result of using SXF_TRANSFERSPRITEFRAME and the #### reserved sprite name.

Which Doom and tangentially-Doom sounds are your favourite for the following categories of sound:

Realistic, as in it sounds like what it represents.

Symbolic, as in it doesn't sound like what it represents and you only understand what it means by its association. Example would be the Tivo bloop when you fast forward. Fast forwarding video has nothing to do with a bloop sound, other than Tivo makes the sound when you do it.

Metaphoric, as in it abstractly represents an action. Like pitch rising to indicate a window expanding, or pitch lowering to indicate a window lowering.

Verbal, as in voice describing what's happening.

Go beyond the tl;dr with this article http://beyondthebeep.tumblr.com/post/33867831196/the-four-flavors-of-ui-sounds

For me, realistic is the super shotgun, symbolic is revenant AAAA, metaphoric is the power up sound dsgetpow, verbal is skulltag announcer MEGASPHERE.

I think it's also the fact that while low res textures look alright on low poly objects, putting hi res textures on low poly objects looks jarring as fuck, Doom has simple geometry in it's levels, and it looks really ungodly fucking ugly when you slap on 1028x1028res textures on that shit.

the chainsaw in Doom 3 hardly feels as anything but a poorly disguised attempt at making a weapon powerful for the sake of doing so, one that even somehow manages to be even stronger than the game's final weapon, the one that's supposed to make you feel stronger than any other one in your arsenal. there's no semblance of balance to it, no oomph, no gravity or feel to it whatsoever. it just for some reason cuts through higher tier monsters no problem with pretty much zero downsides. it really comes across as an extremely fucking cheap weapon to use in every regard and I have no idea as to why you would even think having anything like it in a game which main goal pretty much consists on making the player feel dreaded and overwhelmed is adding to the overall feel.

>> No.3133783

I don't expect it to be the best game ever made. It seems like a novel thing, with impressive visuals for a doom mod.

>> No.3133823

I have the Lost Levels music PK3 in the main folder where GZDoom is and the music runs fine. Dunno what's up with your music.

Are TNT and Plutonia designed with pistol starts in mind?

>> No.3133853

Exploration, interesting architecture, challenge.
I like slaughtermaps (without weapon mods) and ball-busters, though.

>So the game was never played at native resolution even on release.
Analog CRTs don't have a "native resolution". They display any resolution they can handle equally well.

That's why games looked fine on CRTs but would sometimes look like ass on early LCD panels - because LCD panels *do* have a native resolution, and scaling sometimes makes things look shit.

>I've since stopped assuming that the skulltag/zandronum community knows the slightest thing about a good mod
the zandronum community is a complete mess, now
shitty mods, sns is a joke, bestever is an outdated and buggy piece of shit, modding is at an all time low, the competitive scene is dwindling, and the forums are filled with people more interested in shitting on each other than playing vidya games

>> No.3133972

Smells Like Burning Corpse is a really good track (though it's broken in some versions)

AimShootKill I think is even better though, as is Let's Kill At Will and Death's Bells.
Horizon is the best, but there really isn't one bad track in TNT: Evilution

That seems familiar!

Don't forget that the only form of public PvP on zandronum is fucking mm8bdm

Into The Beast's Belly is definitely my favourite.
Too bad it's only used on crappy maps.

I'm surprised nobody ripped the shit out of those resources for a doom wad.

if there's one thing nipponland is good at, it's smiling to your face and then kicking you in the dick, then apologizing for kicking you in the dick, and then kicking you again one more time

also cute girls, but mostly dick kicking

That, or they're just shit at mapping for Doom.

Is it good, or another overblown over-produced Realm667 mash-up?

>> No.3134231


It is not a R667 mashup, but that project was lead by the guy maintaining the site, so make of that what you will.

I haven't played them all (yet), but it's all over the place yes. Though it's all worth it just because I got to experience map03 for the first time.

>> No.3134250

Well there's a link to a WAD with textures and sprites in the thread http://www.mediafire.com/download/uv9bqx5ixunq9c4/DARNATEX.wad

I don't know if it's everything though and the lack of a custom palette tells me that these were converting to Doom's palette. They're slightly different.

https://www.sendspace.com/file/frk027 Here's a dump of the sounds in one big wav and the palette in two formats. There's some cheesy explosions, a bad robolady announcer, guns, powerup sounds, and reverberated monsters.

believe me, I've noticed that.

I mean when I took my year break from doom it wasn't exactly all that great when I left but holy crap, it feels like there's maybe two actually somewhat decent zandronum modders anymore

and excluding weeaboo simulator since that has 90% of its presence on zdoom and /vr/, has there been a single decent mod released on the zandronum forums in the past year? even *one*?

how has the zandronum community gotten so terrible?
