You have to mess a bit with MODELDEF to assign frame names, but there is indeed no need to convert or anything. Oh and MD3 is much better than MD2 in any case.

Noesis can by the way convert models from engines like Source or Doom 3 to md3 so you can use them straight away if they don't have too many details.

That's typically a pretty big "if", especially since models from 2000-onwards are typically designed for lighting systems that GZDoom very very much does not have, at least at the moment. (Note this rock/snow tuft/whatever from a promotional screenshot from the upcoming Blade of Overreaching update: It's a model, and as such reacts weirdly to the dynamic light.

Those doors blow up when you shoot them enough. I was lost for a long while until I figured that out.

I'm doing a complete enemy replacement. Mostly variants of infantry though.

Actually, because of
>models from 2000-onwards are typically designed for lighting systems that GZDoom very very much does not have
Doom3 engine models have fairly low polygon counts since they relied so much on bump maps and stencil shadows. It's easy to "bake" the diffuse, depth etc.texture maps in photoshop and use the result as an md3 model texture with results just as fine as you'd get from a previous gen model format/style.

>> No.3941231
File: 11 KB, 459x131, NDS Familiar faces.png [View same] [iqdb] [saucenao] [google] [report]

Nope. Blow-up doors look different, and I tried shooting these ones too with both explosives and not - shots are stopped mid-air by invisible wall.

I've already found what's wrong - the button that was supposed to open them did not work for some reason, even when I restarted the level.

I had to reload the hub world save that I made before entering it and it worked. Even then, I dont think that closed doors were supposed to have invisible walls before them.
I have already finished the game BTW, and here's what I have to say about it:

Weapon design and enemy reactions are great, however most guns feel severely underpowered (yes, I know that im supposed to go for headshots). Shredder's mechanics for example work against it - main bulk of the damage disperses in the flechettes and does not hit anything, even if you aim at walls behind target or on its feet. Only weapons I found satisfying were Cerebral Bore, Flamethrower and Firestorm.

Enemy variety is great.

Level design is good in level 1, decent in level 2, and terrible everywhere else due to extreme samy-ness of environments, endless cramped corridors and very few landmarks. It is ridiculously easy to miss crucial item and very hard to track it down afterwards.

Overall, I think that whoever sings praises to it is either wearing rose-tinted nostalgia glasses, or havent made it past second level.

I really hope Kaiser decides to pick remake Turok 3 as well.

Browsing the steam forums I noticed a lot of familliar nicknames with [developer] tag, beside Kaiser. Who else notable from the Doom community worked on this?

Few things off the top of my head I can think of when it comes to plans for balancing out the main weaponset would be shit like:
>make the axe hold less charge, turn altfire into a straight flying back and forth boomerang
>make pistol shoot a little slower, removing reloading mechanic except for when using magdup altfire
>swap out particle smasher for an oversized single barrel supershotgun style weapon, give it a hearty kickback. (Particle Smasher will be for another weaponset)
>increase gnasher ammo consumption
>turn the rocket launcher into a 3 round burst rocket launcher, maybe a cluster missile altfire

I have so many weapons planned for C_A it's absurd. But I need to finish Space Hunter and updoot GMOTA first. I've been really bad about this recently

>> No.3941304

I got that, but that anon would need a platform for said drawn map area to work on.

The default mod is configured as a list, but it doesn't have to be. This is how the code for it looks like (4 map edition):

Background map
Splat splat
Pointer youL youR

0 0 means top left. Start there.
-> = ++. Increase first value to go right
V = ++. Increase second value to go down
Limits are according to image resolution.
CAUTION!!! Doom1's intermission maps are 320x200, so anything with a different aspect ratio will screw up the pixel placement for the spots below!

I disagree. A near-instant pistol switch would be handy for when a map throws a chaingunner or lost soul at you out of the blue.

Yes I'll complain about that because it's not fun gameplay design. Either way, you agree that the weapon sucks. The devs should consider rethinking the pistol.

I think this needs to be emphasized, if it's entirely the player's decision to do this then it's hardly the fault of the game/mod design. Just because a player CAN do it doesn't mean that they SHOULD.

You CAN go through all of Devil May Cry never once using techniques or the sword or Devil Trigger and only using the infinite ammo pistols to safely dispatch enemies at range, but that's stupid.
You CAN go through all of Mega Man 2 purely buster-only, never once using any of the weapons, but that's stupid.
Same with Metal Slug, Doom 4, and hell even in Doom 1 you can throw away weapons and go through the entire game with just the chainsaw. Hell, there's even Tyson runs for that. But is it the ideal way to play? No.
"But the other weapons use ammo" is one of the most lame justifications. Yes, there's ammo. So use it.

Besides, the entire point of the "infinite pistol" trope (and I fucking hate myself for using the word "trope") is due to a lot of mapsets, especially more poorly-made ones, relying on ammo starvation to act as a method of challenge, to which the "infinite-ammo pistol" method takes care of by allowing the player to fight at a non-gimped capacity.
In an ideal world, we wouldn't need it because all maps would have perfect ammo placement and progression and allow the player to fight extensively even if they waste a lot of ammo.
But it's not an ideal world and there's a lot of mapsets with ammo starvation. So it's what we do to address it.

Why not just replace the chainsaw or fists with better versions? The chainsaw in Vanilla is very good for sweeping up low-tier monsters like zombies and imps, and it can stunlock certain mid-tier foes like the Cacodemon and Mancubus. It's very good for ammo-starved maps, and I make ammo-famine maps with the chainsaw in mind, often placed in an easy secret or at the start of the level. So, why not have the fists become chainsaw tier, and the chainsaw even better?

Your second point is well-made but this

But is it the ideal way to play? No."But the other weapons use ammo" is one of the most lame justifications. Yes, there's ammo. So use it.

is a lame and specious argument. Doing all those things takes more challenge. There's no challenge or tactics involved in plinking away at enemies from afar at no cost. Using rockets is a tactical decision because ammo pickups for such are infrequent in Doom. Using the chaingun is a tactical decision because bullet ammo is less frequent than shell ammo, and chaingun ammo is better saved for situations where you need an emergency weapon for crowd control for certain enemy types in areas where there is no cover (e.g. a map throwing multiple chaingunners at the player at close range or at long range but with dispersed placement, a mancubus at the end of a narrow corridor, a swarm of lost souls).

Mega Man and Metal Slug don't give the player the luxury of backing away and engaging the enemies past the screens they are in, there's pressure to kill things as fast as possible because they are an immediate threat to the player. On the other hand, there's plenty of situations throughout Doom maps where the player can take as much time as possible to snipe enemies, provided he is willing to spend the ammo to do so, which is usually far less efficient than eventually coming across a way to bring himself closer to the enemies and kill them with the SSG or telefrag them, as is the case with most maps.

>> No.3942913

So we agree that it's not efficient, then. That's a good thing.
Honestly, at this point, it really just seems like it's boiling down to just "people play in different ways", which is really making it even less of an issue of game design than originally was.

>> No.3942925

It's not efficient because you're spending more ammo than necessary, you pay a cost for doing it. If you use rockets, you expend an infrequent resource. If you use bullets, you have less security for the emergency situations that I described in a previous post. With infinite ammo pistols, there is no cost, just time, which is an irrelevant factor in Doom in most cases.

A good wad wouldn't throw literal waves of imps at you, they'd intermix them with other enemy types which forces the player to swap through their arsenal on the fly. The pistols may be good for weaker foes but are still not a great option against anything above an imp.

>> No.3942972

I know. But, you will get swarmed assuming there's more than 5 or so imps and the random aspect to their movement isn't spacing them out. It proves a dilemma in maps with low ammo reserves and chainsaws or berserk packs: either waste ammo and get it done fast, or risk taking some damage and do it at a slightly reduced speed without using ammunition. That sort of problem is lost when you give a ranged weapon infinite ammo, some maps are made trivial and the close quarter weapons are made objectively inferior, even if they do more damage because their benefit of ammo conservation is lost.

>> No.3943390

Has anyone else played the gameplay mod Salvo Jettison?


I think it's a highly overlooked mod.

The main distinctive feature of the mod is a weight-based limit system for weapons; you have a max weight carry limit, weapons weigh differently from one another, and your movement speed slows down the more weight you're carrying.

The weapons themselves are all pretty unique and I think are meticulously made, whether it's through detailed characteristics or quality of life features. The revolver for example properly loads one cartridge at a time, and doesn't just have a fixed reload time no matter how much of the cylinder is spent like in most mods that have revolvers. The odd double-barrel, pump-action and magazine-based shotgun lets you seamlessly transition to reloading shells after a pump. The cryo gun has an alt-fire for punching shit so you can just use that to shatter any frozen enemies instead of constantly having to switch between weapons. Keeping the chaingun spooled up constantly alerts enemies (something BD didn't accomplish until years later, if I'm not mistaken, and a feature that I rarely see in mods with such an option).

The enemies are tweaked to behave faster and more aggressively like in mods such as BD and MSX, but to a lesser degree than the aforementioned mods which I think is more reasonable and doesn't break as much in more extreme enemy encounters.

The biggest praise I can give any gameplay mod, which I am giving to this mod, is that it is very daring in breaking away from traditional Doom weapon balance and manages to succeed in creating its own thing that is still balanced, with every aspect of it feeling purposeful and fun to play with. The level of challenge produced by the mod's unique weapon ecosystem and its tweaked enemies feels just right.

To make it work, you have to literally mesh together all states of all monsters with their respective counterparts of the mod, while maintaining all the logic functions that makes them do what you want them to do.

Since BD's code is a spaghetty mess that jumps allover the place on every opportunity, making anything monster-related to work with BD without breaking it is a daunting task, as you have to literally rewrite both mod's monster code.

>> No.3943506

I haven't played that, I wasn't able to find a thread for it in ZDoom which explains why. Apparently it's an older mod than Salvo Jettison but he updated it recently.

I tried it briefly but I'm not feeling it, not yet anyway. I know that the mod's main feature is the light/dark magic weapons but I think that making the traditional and early weapons as weak and underwhelming as they are is a problem. A lot of maps will start the player with just those weapons and keep things that way for a while and he can easily be screwed. Also, much of the mod seems to also be designed around usage of inventory items (more so than Heretic and Hexen, I'd say) and it's a bit cumbersome to manage them in a fast-paced game like Doom (even if you use quick use keys there's still a shitload of them).

It's too early for me to say whether the mod is well-executed or not, but I will say that it has a higher learning curve than most mods. It is certainly unique and I can see the appeal of the mod for people who are into Blood's occult theme.

" So it was impossible for me to persevere with Doom in 1994, and I still can't do it. I stand aghast therefore at the news that recent years have seen the rise of Doom hipsterism whereby a (thankfully) small but significantly loud playerbase not only still plays and autistically replays Doom to completion in this day and age, but even develops so-called "WADs" — whatever that's supposed to be — which somehow — horror of horrors! — extend the game's longevity! Now I've no idea what a "WAD" is and have deliberately avoided finding out — I am sure it is something beyond stupid, and I've resolved to die without knowing what it is. So please spare my poor brain the knowledge of yet one more rank subhuman idiocy, and refrain from telling me about it. But it's obviously either new "levels", or, even worse, modified versions of existing ones, and it blows my mind that there are people in 2017 who prefer such garbage to the wealth — and even glut — of modern and immeasurably superior FPSes that exist. So we are not talking about poverty or ignorance or even extremely narrow tastes anymore, but about sickness pure and simple (if poverty and ignorance and narrow tastes were not already a sickness, to an extent, when viewed from a higher perspective, which they are), and if you are involved with this scene in any way, shape or form I can guarantee you that you are autistic — that a certified medical professional would place you somewhere on the autism spectrum and that your "WADs" would be his very diagnostic tool."

For now it’s worth comparing Wolf 3D with, on the one hand other sprite-scaling games, which were using in other words the same graphics technology; and on the other hand with 2D arcade gun-shooting games like Operation Wolf and Cabal, which had many mechanical similarities. All of these game were superior to Wolf 3D — all of them: every single one. Far superior even. So the sprite-scaling technology cannot be used as an excuse for the game’s ugliness, nor for its lack of levels and interesting environments and setpieces and detailed and varied enemies and so on, when stuff like Space Harrier and Outrun long existed. id just simply didn’t know how to make games at a contemporary standard. And Operation Wolf, Cabal, and the like were quite close, mechanically, to Wolf 3D, but with proper levels and bosses and setpieces and lots of variety. So again, id has no excuse for not learning from them apart from lack of talent and sheer ignorance. As for the dungeon setting, it’s worth pointing out that even dungeon crawlers were leaving dungeons in droves by the time of Wolf 3D’s release, and turning into WRPGs and JRPGs with towns and forests and mountains and seas, and the genre was dying a quick and very deserved death, because dungeons are frigging boring. They can be fun if used sporadically, to spice up a game, but an entire game set in a dungeon — with few exceptions — is just autistic. For when was the last time you saw a movie set entirely in a dungeon? Now imagine if, for years, every movie that came out took place inside a dungeon. No one would be watching movies after a while. My theory is that programmer nerds live their whole lives inside a dungeon anyway, and so, for them, dungeon environments are the norm and they see nothing wrong with them.

I think Quake has the overall best balance as far as vanilla weapon sets go. It's also fun because of its focus on explosive weapons (you get the GL early and will be swimming in ammo for it), and its instant switch time that makes using such weapons less risky and more encouraged.

in any case, i believe the modder is expected to post credits, just as other modder is expected to not bitch about "stolen" things, so that the community doesnt turn into shitflinging unique snowflakes. Some dude makes a great mod, some other dude makes another and takes something to make it even greater and forgets to mention or maybe simply doesnt give a fuck.

One of these things is not like the other.

Anyway the point is that the offending person in this case has apparently made it a habit of making mods based mostly on other people's work with little to no creditation. It's not like when DBT or PillowBlaster throw a hissyfit if a single one of their sprites was used without written consent.

Or when I got called out for basing a very simple fragment shader upon one written by someone else. Literally ~8 lines of high school math.

Axe is for interacting with switches or finding hidden ones without having to use ammo, or a backup weapon for finishing off knights or other weak enemies if you need to save ammo (rare, but still happens in some maps)

Shotgun is for long range accurate hitscan. I use this commonly despite having the later weapons. Very useful for scrags.

Nailgun is the only one that becomes obsolete, but there's nothing necessarily wrong with that. Weapon systems can work on a hierarchy, and unlike Doom where the pistol is quickly replaced by the chaingun, or Quake 2 where the shotgun is quickly replaced by the SSG, the nailgun's replacement doesn't appear until much later in an episode or a map.

Because the map author thinks the rocket launcher is easy mode and you don't deserve to use it, and should instead use your slow projectile nailgun to take out the three dozen floating kidneys hovering around pelting you with vomit balls, as shown by the "ZOMG you got a rocket lawncher!!!" text when you finally get the RL.

That's probably why the Doom 64 sprites are twice as large.

I played it with Final Doomer and didn't remember having much of a problem, and I'm not a great player.
Though, you might want to check if you want to do MAP32 before going for the secret exit.

Now that I think about it, what's the go-to Doom 64 monster sprite replacement?

>> No.3945414

yeah i know all about go 4 it. It doesn't look like anything compared to scythe or going down

>> No.3945424

if you're gonna call that an "actual doom screenshot" you might as well go with blade of agony or total chaos

>> No.3945425

There isn't one, which is a shame.

Its like Mr Bean goes over every screenshot with a coat of vaseline

Any Duke Nukem 3D-style maps for Doom, especially ones that make use of GZDoom functionality? After the Starter Pack stuff and SgtMark definitely taking inspiration from DN3D, i've got an itch for messing with gameplay mods and stuff involving the level style.
