Why are people that still play Doom and Quake online such elitist assholes?

>> No.4150086

I don't know if this is related but some ancient Quake pro player just recently stated that the game is "solved". In other words, there is no more tech to discover, tactics to formulate or skill to accumulate. The multiplayer has been continuously perfected for 21 years and there is literally nothing new to do anymore.

About the elitism, Quake is a game that was the first functional prototype of a complete 3d FPS. So it has features that other games have done better since, and working around those limitations is part of the skill that it takes to play it. Bunnyhopping is a skill of rhythm and careful manipulation of controls. In modern games it's usually coded out so you can't do it at all. Jumping over gaps is a precise science, where your entire player collision box has to clear an obstacle. Modern games have mantling systems that let you get up a wall even if you didn't entirely clear the gap with a jump. Classic FPS players take pride in their ability to work around the difficulties of partially obsolete design. You are not allowed to complain about something being shit. You have to git gud and accept the percieved artificial difficulty.

If you want to have fun in Quake multiplayer, make sure that you face off with players with an equal skill level to yours. Fighting veterans is fun for neither side because of the insurmountable odds of one side and the cakewalk on the other. Also I'm certain that veterans fighting veterans is pretty tedious as well, since everyone knows everything about everything, and victory comes down to chance.

Have your own private amateur matches and fuck the elitists.

I think that's worse because those games are made with no thought or pretense of game balance at all, which is why the users make up so many fucking retarded rules to try to desperately balance the game, when it's inherently unbalanced and this is a fool's errand. They miss the point of the game and really they should be playing something else.

In Quake, everyone has the same stats and numbers, all the weapons and items work the same for all players, it actually comes down to how good you are at the game.

>> No.4150885

What difficulty are you playing on?

>> No.4150893

i don't think you should expect to always be able to get through every map blind first time. if you could get through every map on first attempt without dying the game would be too easy. that's why it has a save function that works anywhere. i use savegames to learn a level, then try to beat it without them.

>> No.4150898

you actually dont have to die to figure things out if you all memes aside git gud.

Eventually after playing enough doom and learning the tropes, you learn what weapon to be carrying, for the types of enemies that are typical in the mapset you're playing. For instance you're carrying around a shotgun, you should have been carrying a chaingun to stun the hitscans.

Little rule of thumb:

>lots of hitscan enemies sprawled out
carry around a chaingun
>lots of high health enemies surrounding you so you cant move
Carry a plasma gun and carve a path into a safe opening
>big huge clumps of low level hitscanners
ssg. Or if youre really confident, rocket launcher.

>> No.4150904

forgot to add, use enemies to block other enemies. Revenants are AMAZING for blocking hitscanners.

position the angry skeleton directly in front of you so that the hit scanners are shooting the agitated monster and not you. Stay very close to the skeleton so that he swings fisticuffs and back up on each swing

>> No.4150907


yeah I know, on that matter, plutonia doesn't seem to have a monster preference on any level beyond some extra archviles here and there, so you ultimately have to guess what's gonna ambish you. Because almost all enemies in plutonia ambush you, jesus fucking christ.

I tend to default to the ssg because i'm a scaredy fag who cover shoots instead of moving

Put on Fast Monsters too.

>> No.4150925

stop defaulting ssg. Ssg is extremely situational yet everyone defaults it and i have no idea why.

If you're going to default ANYTHING default chain gun, and when you can plasma gun. You'll find yourself dying alot less.

Plutonia has preferences, the most dangerous being chain gunner closets. If you have a chain gun, and position yourself correctly (preferably them in a line) you'll come out on top every time. If you can't get them in a line, at least chain gunning stuns one meaning less DPS on you. And plutonia gives you enough health and armor.

Lets say you default chain gun and its a chain gunner closet, perfect you had the correct weapon for the job.

lets say you default chain gun and its skeletons
No harm no foul, you can switch to your ssg while dodging rockets.

Lets say you default ssg and its a chaingunner closet. You're losing a lot of health killing 2-3 of them, then reloading freaking out looking for cover, maybe even wiffing

lets say you default ssg and its skeletons. Well you have the correct gun for this situation, but it was a gamble.

Always default chaingun

well it's the last DOOM official .WAD I have to play left.

>Plutonia has preferences, the most dangerous being chain gunner closets.

That would be TNT, which had use of pretty frequent one-chaingunner closets.

I'll consider using the chaingun

>I just noticed you killed the revenants first. They are NOT priority, the hitscans are.
I think you misundertood the situation

You get ported back to that place after you clear up the room and move to a side room and get a key.

When you port you always face the same direction. All the (just spawed) chaingunners are behind you and have a direct tline of sight of you. They are also one of the fastest reacting enemies in the game - You will be shoot before they finish their spotted grunts

Even if you appear with a BFG shot loading you'll still lose health

>> No.4151008

>lets say you default chain gun and its skeletons. No harm no foul, you can switch to your ssg while dodging rockets.
I don't understand why people give this advice, the chaingun is super effective against revenants if you tapfire

>> No.4151028

>Even if you appear with a BFG shot loading you'll still lose health
is losing health a problem? unless you are attempting Reality conduct, losing _some_ health isn't the end of the world. the trick is not to lose all of it.

>> No.4151031

I'm just giving context to how unfair that kind of ambush is

>> No.4151034

having said that plutonia is full of moments like this, places where you will die unless you are expecting them. this appeals to some people (notably the early competn crowd, i've definitely seen people like Adam Hegyi gushing over it in text files and such) as there is much satisfaction in beating a map from pistol start that has killed you lots of times before.

What's the best way to design a level? Is it creating a really basic layout of the level (like pic related) or working on making each room detailed first?

(ignore my autistic color coding)

>> No.4152130

its about not making boxes seperated by doors

>> No.4152136

same as with any creative process: there's no definite method, some prefer to draw an entire layout on paper, some like to build around set pieces or monster encounters, some rather finalise each room before continuing.

All I can say from your image is that it's very square and repetitive (even if it is a rough draft), try to have lots of interconnectivity between the rooms to make things exciting

>> No.4152140

i think it helps if you have a plan of the whole shape and how the various bits connect together. if you do room-at-a-time you end up with a maze of rooms and halls with little connection/integration between them, and the feeling that each area might as well be a separate level.

and yeah try to avoid a grid of square boxes! it's hard to make a grid of square boxes interesting.

your layout you already have could work, but it needs opening up. add windows between the rooms for example. make the rooms have different floor heights and have staircases where the doors are. put an air gap with a slime river and windows either side, between the rooms.

>> No.4152149


I wouldnt say it's really about making each room detailed, it's mostly about the general structure of the level. Your exemple sort of looks like a dungeon crawling board game setup, square tile after square tile. Doom's engine allows you to make much more organinc setups. Go nuts, maybe do not think so much in terms of "rooms". Thinking outside the box litterally.

Styles vary like mentioned, but if you haven't tried it I recommend giving pen and paper a chance. It's much less daunting to start mapping once you have the general idea of how the map will flow, as it becomes more about just executing the idea you have instead of staring at an empty grid.

I really disagree, DNF took the weapons of DN3D, basically as they were, but put them in a modern military style shooter of the 2010s, and those weapons really don't play off each other well with a 2 weapon limit.
The combat flows HORRIBLY in DNF, trying to shoehorn in modern mechanics and sensibilities (like a halfbaked regen health) into a setup that really doesn't fit it.
It feels like they *tried* to make it more advanced than DN3D, yet dumbed it down and made it dull and frustrating.
DNF is built on the foundations of lots of previous revisions and philosophy changes and then is brutally forced to fit into the constraints of a modern kind of shooter it just has no business being. It is the Alacatraz of first FPS, you tear it apart and you see foundational work and ideas from eras before and it's all just haphazardly stacked. Some of it even lies in the open, next to the new stuff that's forced in.

Doom 3; everything works conventionally, you carry all your guns, you carry all the ammo you find, you pick up or charge health and armor as you discover it, etc. The game doesn't really force you to use X or Y weapon by circumstances, you can pretty much use whatever weapon you feel like that you have with you.
You can even realistically and effectively face like 75% of all the combat encounters in the game with the chainsaw if you feel like it (IMO, this is the most fun way to play). The level design is a bit dark, the reliance on jumpscares and closets gets trite soon, desensitizing you to them, and the monsters aren't *impossible* to tell apart, but some of them are quite boring and most of them have a similar palette and aesthetic.
It feels like it sort of tries to be a Half-Life game, though missing a few important marks, it's got dull parts, and flaws, but it feels like there was a clear and concise goal in what it was supposed to be, they didn't delay it endlessly and overhaul it time after time to make it something it wasn't or shouldn't be.

Deus Ex was groundbreaking for it's time for but looks like a junky poligonal mess.

Wizardry was groundbeaking for it's time and it's a considered a grindfest nowadays.

Command & Conquer was groundbreaking for it's time and it's slow and barely exciting compared to the later titles of the franchise. it's clones and contemporaries were a mess too, despite all being great RTSs.

People's expectations of video games change over time. People's concept of what a video game is and even what a genre is changes over time. You can't judge everything over a universal standard, that implies all games much be made with concepts such as how they age as technology develops in mind.

More often than not, games that pioneer a genre or a technology don't age well, because they weren't made with polish and age in mind.

It's still good, but not as amazing as I remember. It's still looks alright but it's not spellbinding.

On the other hand, looking at Duke Nukem 3D, the graphics were behind the curve for the times, people were now exploring real 3D, but the game is so well done and polished and richly detailed that I think it holds up well still (even if swinging doors are a bit janky from an engine perspective)

i crossreferenced this with funduke's Maximum Doom reference
and found the name of the wad he was playing is likely DTH2PCOM and the map is called LAVAPIT.WAD
which is an unremarkable deathmatch map with 7 monsters.

Did a new pistol guy because jesus christ the old one looked bad. Not saying this one is masterful but he's more visible and interesting to look at, and somewhat more consistent. Downside is that now he won't really fit with the delightful modified PSX zombie noises and would be best set up with the radio noises the subgunner and shotgun guy has. Maybe I'll have to invent another mook who wears no helmet so you can hear that groaning.

Likewise, I put together a really nice and monstrous sounding set of sounds for the rifleman, and decided, he should look less natural, like he's possessed by something different to the other guys, thus his eyes are bright green. I even colored them for when you gib him, so you can see his bright green eyeballs fly.

Arc-Vile is still barely halfway done but there's one frame to look at. Not 100% on the turret but I think it looks sort of better than the original one still. Mind it'll be scaled down ingame.

not sure what's exactly gone wrong with the conversion, likely a dodgy BSP build has written out the wrong number of vertexes. so i suggest getting a map and deleting a random vertex from the middle of the lump. it might just crash the game, though.

>> No.4153229

this seems to be wrong, please ignore it. further examination seems to show no deleted vertexes, but the vertex references in the lines have been renumbered, apparently from vertex 140 onwards they have all (maybe all, i didn't check them completely) been reduced by two (so line 194 ends at vertex 138 not 140, and so on)

I know, it bothers me too, but this marine is slightly better than the previous one, because he's less brutally and sloppily cobbled together than the other one. I still had to do some fixes for him anyway.
I think it might come from Strife, where the rebels would just walk with their hand in the air like that.

I think something that'd really fit would be not a marine, but just a dude in like a jumpsuit and carrying a pistol, like low-level security or a technician who headed towards an armory once he was possessed.
The higher level security and the infantry combat units would typically already be carrying heavier weapons and be geared up in armor.

But there's even more to be picky about, the chainsaw in that other zombie's hand is horribly inconsistent and sloppy, mostly the blade. I could probably repaint the blade with enough effort but right now I just don't care for it. The rifleman carries 'some kind of rifle' which gets to stand is as close enough for a CAR15, even if the proportions are completely screwy. The subgun guy is also not proper, holding his off hand and with a gun that's not fitting. At least he grips it with both hands when firing.

I finished Opposing Force again yesterday, and I gotta say one of the negative things that come to mind is that there are scripted scenes that do not make sense for a silent player character. Two scenes come to mind, both at the beginning and the end of the game:

1. In the med bay, you have to pick up your armor before a security guard lets you continue. On your way to him, you can witness a scripted scene where a zombie soldier wakes up and throws a scientist though a window. The zombie than wanders about and tries to attack you, but you do not have any weapons. You can't inform any other NPC about this.

2. After disarming the bomb at the end to have another guard let you into the storage, you can straight up witness the Gman rearming it through a window. You can't tell the guard that someone is messing with it so he lets you outside.

No idea what's that. But it really depends on what you wanna do tho' The modding archive massive and covers completely diffferent tastes

If you want more vanilla maps, Scythe, TNT: Evilution, Alien Vendetta and a couple more are great

If you want Vanilla with a quirk, there's hundreds of weapon only WADs that go from good fun to meme insanity, GMOTA, Demonsteele, Hideous Destructor, hell I remember a rickroll gun

If you want to see new things and enemies, play pirate doom, and any of those half-total conversions with different weapons like Zen Dynamics

Speaking of Zen Dynamics, there's a lot of mods that like to play with zdoom and gzdoom effects and look very pretty or just fun to play in and see map how they are done. There's also the "super detailed map" subcategory where Gothic is king

Then you have Total Convertions and near total gameplay changes like Action Doom, Ghostbusters TC, that old Star Wars neat TC and lot's of short experimental WADs

There's also the slaughterfest, the "single level WADs that are so massive it takes two hours to complete" category which mix perfectly with weapon WADs

The best place to start and to get a good handle of most of these categories and a bit of modding history are the Cacowards and Top 100 WADs of all time lists

I don't know why people are often so hesitant to use the explosive weapons. Ammo is often abundant, especially if the level has a bunch of Ogres (two rockets from each Ogre's backpack adds up quick), they do good damage and can either instagib or do severe damage to most everything weaker than a Death Knight, and Quake's instant weapon switching encourages the player to mess around with combos and swap to their big guns whenever possible while staying on the move since there's so little cooldown for going back to your shotgun or nailgun.

>Less enemies than Doom 2 (doesn't help that certain enemies only appear in certain levels, too)
Less enemies, but better designed. I don't think having three types of very similar grunt-mooks (zombieman, shotgunner, HWguy) is worth having over two distinct humanoid idbase enemies (hitscan grunts and projectile enforcers), and while vanilla Quake doesn't have any enemies that pull tricks like the Revenant's enemy revival, its beefiest enemies are still weaker than a Cyberdemon and its mid-level enemies are a lot more intricate than Doom's which tend to be variations on 'wander around and shoot a slow projectile at the player occasionally' or 'move at a moderate speed until close enough to melee the player.'

Different storks for different forks, really. Some people like the more run-and-gun-and-mow-down-everything gameplay Doom's bestiary gives you, some people prefer the smaller number of tougher, more intricate enemies Quake tends to throw.

>The bosses are basically just puzzles.
Yeah, they're shit. Pretty much everyone will admit that outright.

>Only 2 key colors instead of 3.
This is a good thing, IMO. Keyhunting is one of the worst, most boring ways to artificially extend a level, especially when a mapmaker insists they MUST use all three keys and send the player through three mazes to find 'em.

>Less enemies
This was partially a hardware thing. Polygons put a limit of how many a computer can handle at a time. The encounters are designed to be smaller numbers of harder to deal with enemies, often forcing you to temporarily retreat even without the massive out-numbering of doom.
I quite like the fact that the bosses are puzzles - considering they are either immune to your puny weapons or beings from another dimension. Bosses aren't really the focus of quake and compared to icon of sin the quake bosses are excellent.

The levels are usually highly interconnected and more vertical than doom - so they may seem smaller and less open ended, but they are roughly around the same size. Some of the
doom levels are tiny compared to some of the larger quake levels. Compare the first map of E4 in quake to any of the other first maps of doom.

Less key colors seems like a strange gripe. You can make excellent gameplay and levels without keys at all. More complex puzzles and changeable geometry are capable in quake so I guess they felt like they didn't need an extra key when they can have barrier being lowered, wind tunnels being unblocked, bridges being raised, moving platforms being set into motion, and the multitude of other ways of preventing players from entering a certain part of a level.

Quake levels are generally incredibly well designed so you intuitively know where to go - it feels like they are straight forward, but you're constantly in action and rarely back-tracking.

The same thing happened with HL1

Even though HL1 still had fast paced gameplay and platforming in the later levels, basically none of that was present in Anomalous Materials and Unforeseen Consequences, which was all super fancy scripted sequences.

Quake 2 would be much better off without the regular shotgun or the chaingun.

I would have been okay with nerfing the firepower of the SSG a little bit (say, just like two blasts from the normal shotgun rather than amped damage).

And then you just get the SSG, maybe not until the 2nd area and give the player a few grenades in the first map.

And players would have liked it more that way anyhow. Just like playing doom, you dont care about the shotgun at all, you just want the SSG.

The Machinegun/Chaingun definitely needs to be condensed into one weapon. Definitely. Definitely.

The trick is the Chaingun eats ammo fast and its kinda OP for facing bosses (here, get fazed and take 1600 points of damage, now I hide), but you can certainly get along just fine with the machinegun. Ive got no problems with killing parasites, enforcers, and tanks with a machinegun.

In my experience I often just used the Chaingun to do a tap-burst of 9, I rarely used the full fire rate for it (if I was gonna do that, id rather just use grenades for indirect fire). Which is pretty much just like shooting the Machinegun.

So using a Machinegun without the muzzle rise I think would be perfectly fine. Slight increase in fire rate just like a modern assault rifle. Make the player wait another map/level to get it thats all.

And to retain a gatling gun in the franchise they could have made the Hyperblaster use a more obvious multi-barreled design. Kinda like a gatling laser, it would still feel just as powerful and dangerous even if it fires at the same rate.

>> No.4155170

I would make the hyperblaster a fully automatic MG and do away with that retarded fucking spinup time in-between single shots, and increase the size of those stupidly small projectiles. change the sound while I was at it too. also that awful gun design.

I would've had it set up like this. Some of the damage values would've been different for MP play:

Blaster - Keep as it is, but the model used on the hand of the lowest grunts would be a better inspiration for it (dark grey with neon blue lights).

SSG - 4x24 dmg (96), same spread as the standard super shotgun. If I could tweak it, would fire two slugs with shot to back it up (20x2 in a narrow spread, plus 4x14 wide spread)

Machinegun - 8 dmg at 13 per second. There's a random chance of bumping the aim up after every few shots. Rebuilt like an actual machinegun rather than a pdw.

Grenaderocket Launcher - all grenades do 125 dmg with 160 spread. This item gives you two "weapons" on the same slot... the other one just switches one of the weapon lights on it (this is the altfire mode). This is your rocket launcher, it can fire bouncing grenades but it also allows you to shoot your grenades as rockets, whereas your hand grenades can only be thrown.
> and either the hand grenades would use the same beer-can model that was carried over from Q1, or the gun would launch primed hand grenades instead

* You dont need a grenade launcher when its given, since you already have hand grenades and it makes the game a little harder to have to use them. So just give the player the equivalent of an RL when its time for an RL.

Hyperblaster - Like I mentioned, it would look more like a techy gatling gun with lights on it. Same fire rate and dmg but it would fire a couple shots slow as it was spinning up (you can get a 3 shot burst with it that way).

Railgun - Ironically this weapon is just about alright. But I would only have it do 100 damage in SP and only 90 in MP.
> muh armor shard protection - whatever

Notice that id be robbing the player of all of their rockets so they have to make due with a chunk of their ammo being gone. But I guess you'd find more of them and some of the rocket item drops would be eliminated.

Also it would've been Alot better to display the blaster projectiles as a clump of particles. Just like the trail except more dense. And maybe put one of those pure-white ball models at the front of it (the one used for a bullet impact). Very low overhead on processing and it would have looked a little more menacing.

I kinda had a soft spot for the hyperblaster model, but id rather have it as a full size gatling gun akin to the FO1 gatling laser.

> Nerfed Enemy Damage

Yknow I would've set that based on Difficulty rather than change enemy counts. Maybe move enemies around to random locations for difficulty settings.

However we're all aware that in Q1 and Q2 enemies did significantly less damage with the same weapons you use. Unfortunately using the same ammunition they also did less damage to each other too.

I would have given the player a Damage Reduction multiplier against all enemy weapons based on difficulty, and in the meantime they all do the same damage as the players' or something higher than it usually is in Q2.

So for grenades you'd take ~40ish just like you normally would, but maybe on Normal difficulty thats going to be ~60ish damage, and on Hard thats going to be ~90ish. And of course on multiplayer you'll take 125.

> though, I would measure the distance from impact to the center of the model/object for radius damage, that way larger critters take less damage from explosives since its farther from their exterior to their native coordinate on the map. This way damage from explosions also seems sorta random even if you get hit in the face with it.

As for previous post, Multiplayer Damage values:

Blaster - 18 dmg
SSG - unchanged
Machinegun - 6 dmg
Grenades/Rockets - unchanged
Hyperblaster - unchanged
Railgun - 90 dmg
BFG - you dont get a BFG, you get a lightning gun, full Q1 specs except it eats 3 cells per shot

> and a cheat for SP gameplay would replace the BFG with a lightning gun too

>> No.4155283

I havent played quake champions so I wouldnt know.

The lightning gun in UT2k4 did 70 though and it was pretty balanced. And in some ways more fun to use than the railgun just because of the effects involved and it was prettier. But it also did 140 on a headshot so it was a tiny bit more effective even if it couldn't shoot through things.

it's got some questionable design choices in it but overall it's very enjoyable. I think the most dislikes aspect stems from the abilities which come into play heavily on duels and the such, but I don't think it's an unsalvageable wreck as you make it out to be.

to;dr memes are bad for you.

>> No.4155307

Yes I would have put the Q1 lightning gun in Q2, with a higher res or better drawn model but it probably would have been the same style gun to be honest.

Why 3 cells per shot even though damage economy says it should do 45 per hit that way instead of 28?

Because its instant damage whereas blaster projectiles take time to hit.

And with a quad damage powerup thats like a fully automatic railgun for whatever the range distance it reaches out to. So as a BFG replacement it'd definitely have to run out of ammo quicker.

I dont have a modern computer so I cant play it anyway. In the words of someone recently performance is a thing of the past, nobody is going to bother giving you the option of "turning off everything that wont run on my computer, so I can still just play it with crap graphical appearance"

That idea for explosion damage is a pretty good idea actually I think. Measure radius from the point of impact to the very center of the enemy model.

Only issue is some jackass making a mod is going to make a huge boss enemy who is wider than the splash radius so its immune to explosions. Oh well, but even with a minimum amount they'd mod that out anyway if they was being a jackass.

> in truth the way they do explosion damage in Halo is the best way to go about it... you take 100% damage out to 50% of the radius, then it falls off from there to the edge

Making the Q2 Grenade Launcher shoot rockets would have been a genius move too. Because that looks like you're using a big sawed off shotgun to blast a rocket out. Woulda been a pretty cool grunge effect to consider.

A few years ago, back in high school, one of my friends and I used to be really into Doom. And I mean really into Doom. So one day we decided that we would imitate Doom in real life. What did we do?

>> No.4155804

Because 3.0 makes it easier. Also those things that run better were built from the ground up to be better. GZDoom is trying to implement a modern thing on another entirely different thing. The API means shit in this case, except with OpenGL you can actually keep the code easy to fork and distribute.

It's fucking hilarious how all the bashing for graf is made by people who have no fucking idea about coding, and are certainly not helping or caring to help improve things.
Doom maps are by definition an obscene mess of vertices and lines put in there with no regards to optimization or speed. Sure, the original software renderer was able to render that 80 sidedef toilet in that gigantic map, but it was an extremely hacky method. Quite clever, yes, but there's a limit on how much it can scale before it becomes even slower than gzdoom. So you gotta convert that mess into something that can be fed to a modern system.

And what can you do? Add fog in the distance to reduce the load? You *could* but imagine the immediate whining that will occur if you dare. You could do grouping, but that would break the more open maps where you can see the other side at max distance. You could do a lot of things, but all of these things will break something in one way or another. This would also happen with D3D by the way. Graf might be a prick, but he's a prick that actually does something, and pretty much everything he does or changes is met with hate. Improve a thing? that breaks mod X. Fix a bug? Oh that breaks mod Y. Try to see if you act like a prick or not in those conditions.

There's a lot of people with *opinions* who want to sound smart and impress other nerds, but very, very few people with technical knowledge to actually do work.

Most Quake combat is just... walk down a hallway... 2-3 enemies attack... you back up while shooting at them and strafing around a bit... they die... you keep walking down the hallway. Doom combat, on the other hand, often has big open spaces where whole armies of enemies are fighting you and each other on multiple vertical levels - it feels more tactical and warlike. You run around not just to avoid enemy fire, but also to find better positions and get the enemies to fight each other. Doomguy's insane running speed also helps to create a smooth, fun "man vs army of demons" feel. Quake combat just tends to be simpler and more plodding. But I know that probably 90% of this is because Quake had difficulties with too many monsters back on 1996 tech. Maybe there are levels I haven't played that people have made since that have better combat.

>> No.4156379

thanks, yeah i was mapping to some design principles regarding realism/believability, that were frankly wrong, and hurt the gameplay. the ammo shortage comes from the idea that it's a secret military research base so there shouldn't be ammo just lying around. i was mapping as if the location was more than just a game level, which is plainly idiotic. gameplay trumps every other concern.

the windows are meant to be transparent but blocking fire and monster sight, they use an old BSP-specific trick (HOM-free transparent doors) to achieve this that i guess doesn't work well outside the original software renderer. there are better ways to achieve the same effect that are more widely supported, but i didn't know them back then.

yeah the exit was a bit strange. it never occurred to me that it wasn't obvious because i've always played in an engine that draws exit lines in a different colour on the automap. one beta tester said it would have worked better as an exit to a secret level - another actually thought you exited by dying on the demon face that appears under the cyberdemon. but having to run round the ledge was a deliberate choice so you could just charge past and ignore the boss.

would love to see the demo, if you ever get the chance to unearth it again.
