tons of pointless weapons that you need to sift through by pressing the weapon key repeatedly. Bonus points if the most useful weapon is the last.
aiming down the sight. Bonus point if it obscures half the screen and you can't see what you're aiming at.
headshots. Doom is a game about movement, not about aiming. Don't encourage player to stand in place and slowly aim.
mouse recoil. It just doesn't work with Doom, in Doom 90% of the time you want to keep your mouse right smack in the middle of the horizon even if you DO have mouselook on.
useless weapons. No, I don't give a fuck that you gave Doomguy a wrench he can hit people with and that deals exact same damage as fists, why the fuck would I care?
breaking balance. Make some enemies weaker, some enemies stronger, give player overpowered guns... at this point you're fucking with what makes Doom fun in itself, and this can only work well if you're better game designer than people at id software. And let's be fucking honest, you're not or you'd have a job at a game dev company.
Having to bind five thousand keys to use any features - Doom became popular because it was simple, stop trying to make it complex. Bonus points if you have to bind extra keys for stuff GZDoom already supports and you have already bound, like e.g reloading and altfire - but mods needs to have ITS OWN altfire and reload keys in addition to that.

Incidentally Brutal Doom is guilty of every single one of them. Coincidence? I think not.

You could have saved yourself lots of time by writing simply "everything BD does, because it's shit". Brutal haters are funny. They spend as much time and effort on hating the mod and writing huge posts full of mad and care, as the fans spend on playing the mod, having fun, and loving it. Do they derive pleasure from their feelings of anger and hatred? Get some help already. Go outside. Enjoy the sunshine on your face. There's a life out there waiting for you.

The funniest thing is that it was literally an afterthought. I was only really thinking of BD for number 2 and 3. For 1 I was thinking of Complex Doom, for 4, 5 and 6 I was thinking of mods in general, and 7 is actually based on true story of how Brutal Wolfenstein requires you to assing a new reload key even if you have reload bound in GZDoom.

But go off with your persecution complex I guess.

>> No.4397413

It gets worse.
I was playing Complex Doom (dl'ed from moddb) yesterday and for some reason I can't reload weapons at whim unless they run out of ammo.

And I ran out of ammo with the shotgun, so I wanted to switch the weapon because I will die before the super slow reload is complete, right?
Except, when I later switched back to shotgun... magazine was only partially filled - and I CAN'T TOP IT OFF because I can't use the reload key when I want.
So I'm fucking stuck with three shells in magazine.

Made me drop the mod on the spot.
Inb4 just shoot them at a wall - I know I could, but that's moronic and I refuse to play a mod with this little concern for quality of life fixes

>> No.4397415

Imagine you're a big fan of chess. Someone makes a 'mod' for it that turns the game into Mousetrap.

The game might still be fun for some people, sure, but the design has changed so much that the things people love about the original are altered or removed, and the plastic pieces don't always seem to trigger properly so it's objectively flawed in some ways.

Then imagine Mousetrap got a ton of exposure and a ton of people saying how it's the best way to play chess. Mods like Stratego or even checkers that at least maintain elements of the original are ignored in lieu of this one because of how flashy it is, regardless of actual ingenuity or design.

Maybe it makes sense that chess-lovers would have a distaste for Mousetrap after a while, eh? They never really had much reason to like it in the first place, and then they have to hear everyone laud it as superior to the original they do love.

>> No.4397421

This. It's not that Brutal Doom isn't necessarily fun to play, I guess there's some fun to be had.

The problem is that it's just not Doom anymore. If it wasn't for the engine and the old sprites, it would have zero connection to Doom. It's more like CoD meets Duke3D, except running on GZDoom engine for no real reason.

Happens all the time. You legitimately critique something, rationalizing your opinions by giving explanations of your feelings, and people think that you're a fountain of rage.

So I cooked up an action funciton function that I've felt has been missing for a long time.

Action Void K_RadiusPuff(double hitradius, class<actor> puffclass)
ThinkerIterator it = ThinkerIterator.Create("Actor");
Actor mo;
while ((mo = Actor(it.Next())))
If (mo == self || mo.bDormant || !mo.bIsMonster )
{ // Not a valid monster: originator, boss, dormant, or otherwise protected
else if (mo.health <= 0)

If (Distance3D(mo) > hitradius) //DK: you might want distance3d here
{ // Out of range

If (mo.CurSector.PortalGroup != CurSector.PortalGroup && !CheckSight(mo))
//DK: you said it goes through walls - it shouldn't because there's a checksight call here
// in another region and cannot be seen.
actor puff = mo.spawn(puffclass, mo.pos +(0.0, 0.0, mo.height*0.5), NO_REPLACE);
puff.tracer = mo;
puff.target = self;

You call it like this: K_RadiusPuff(256.0, "rocket");
It spawns an actor of your choice on any monster in range and line of sight to the caller. The "puff" actors tracer is the victim and its target is the player, so with custom puffs you can do all sorts of things.

>breaking balance. Make some enemies weaker, some enemies stronger, give player overpowered guns... at this point you're fucking with what makes Doom fun in itself, and this can only work well if you're better game designer than people at id software.
It sounds like you just don't like mods. Why are you playing in gzdoom then?
>And let's be fucking honest, you're not or you'd have a job at a game dev company.
This doesn't follow; you don't get jobs for being autistically focused on balance in a 1993 game no matter how good at balance you are. And that's not why the id software people "got jobs" when they made Doom. Being good at balance is not a marketable skill on its own.
Also Romero is a hack that made Doom good by accident; look at Daikatana to see what he does when he puts planning into stuff.
>Bonus points if you have to bind extra keys for stuff GZDoom already supports and you have already bound, like e.g reloading and altfire - but mods needs to have ITS OWN altfire and reload keys in addition to that.

Every gamer can agree on one thing. Doom, the original 1993 game, was a masterpiece. There is no contest, no debate to be held, and the only negative opinions would come from some person fixated with graphics and thus refusing retro in general. If you like retro games, you must like Doom. If you like FPS games, you must like Doom. If you love retro FPS games, you must praise Doom as one of the best.

Yet I find myself disliking Doom. I have played PWAD after PWAD in the hope my opinion would change, that something would help me see the light. Apparently I am too messed up for this world, I am given gold and see it as shit. Yet I don't know how to change my perspective. Years of playing Doom, devoting a great deal of my free time to playing a game I hate in the hope that it would eventually grow on me, I find myself still disliking it.

I loathe spending hours upon hours trying to find some unofficial secret that defines the route forward. I hate spending more time trying to find the true secrets, which makes it mandatory to spam every wall due to the lack of clues. I hate that the bestiary feels so lacking in variety, Cacodemons especially since they are slogging bullet sponges. It isn't fun running out of ammo, to punch a Cyberdemon to death, as somewhere between the start and his death you start to question your life choices in the repetitive tedium. Sure, that makes it hard, but it is also monotonous.

I hate damaging floors and the fact that they can expect you to run across them, essentially punishing you for running low on health by making it impossible to repair yourself. I hate the linedef puzzles that indefinitely punish me because I walked in some arbitrary place I shouldn't have walked in. I hate STARTAN. I hate teleporter mazes. I hate the fact that so many levels have broken secrets, fruitless hunts of frustration.

I hate Doom. And I hate myself, as it is impossible to hate this. What is wrong with me? How do I force myself to see the light?

>> No.4397727

Tfw I have such a messed up opinion that most people think I am shitposting. What I am saying is that those STARTAN levels have transposed themselves over so that, even in a "good level", I find myself unable to enjoy it because of my connections with that texture.

But this is what I don't get. Everyone likes Doom. It sounds impossible to even say you dislike Doom because it created the groundwork for so many other great FPS titles. Yet, while I can give Doom credit, I find it flawed without even comparing it to later titles. Go back to 1993/early 1994, and while it was perhaps a better option at the time, it just was a highly flawed and frustrating game. I could understand other people differing in their opinion. But when it feels like the rest of the world hails this game, you start to realize there is something severely wrong with you.

I am not even sure if better exists. I am not even sure I like games at this stage. All I know is that I hate Doom. And I need to learn how to like it so I can be happy.

I like ADS (where it makes sense), and mouse recoil.
I also love reloading and spent casings, empty magazines, gunsmoke and spraying gore.

Not in the style of Brutal Doom or it's clones, though.

>> No.4397735

ADS is the only one that chaps my ass, personally. I wanna move fast, taking time to aim is for NERDS.
Reloading can be good as long as the animation and sounds are good, and helps balance the weapon in some way, like if the gun is powerful and there's a satisfying reload to temper that power, then it's satisfying.

Speaking of Brutal doom and brutal clones, the thought of Mark doing tutorials and teaching others how to make Doom mods terrifies me.

>I am not even sure I like games at this stage.
your likely issue here

>> No.4397741

1. Redundant weapons, why?
2. ADS in a game not about precise aiming... why?
3. ditto
4. Recoil is fine as a visual, but if it's actually throws off your aim, how is that anything but obnoxious? Again, Doom isn't about aiming precision.
5. See 1
6. Obviously balance is incredibly important. Poor balance is just poor design unless your mod is supposed to be goofy, but then it's not really something most people are going to play a ton without other mods to try to find a fun balance. For example, Russian Overkill is purposefully OP. Other than for the spectacle there's not a lot of fun using it on normal maps at normal difficulties. You have to play with buffed up monsters or insane maps or it loses its charm after an hour.
7. Who wants to remember 8 different new keybinds? That's just bad design.

Like, nothing that was said in that post is ridiculous, I don't get it.

>> No.4397742

My mod uses ADS, but it doesn't zoom your view in and hipfire is accurate enough for most things. It's also hold-to-zoom rather than toggle, so it encourages quick and occasional use.

Downsides are that you won't be able to use it while in mid air, and you can't use inventory items or punch while aiming.

>mouse recoil
Only for really powerful weapons. Shooting a pistol or intermediate cartridge rifle shouldn't rock your whole body.

Well they're situational for me.

Like, the rifle in Accessories To Murder can be fired with or without sights, for the most part I'll be just shooting normally, but if I want to make shots at longer distances, say there's an archvile or revenant up tall in a cubby somewhere decently far away and I want to pop him while taking aim from somewhere I can take cover.

>It sounds like you just don't like mods.
I love mods. Balance is a delicate thing and you CAN keep it intact. I'd say e.g. Netronian Chaos is a mod that adds new weapons and stuff, but preserves original challenge pretty well.

The trick is understanding that power player has at any moment could be plotted on a rising curve, and making sure that player gets the right advantages and disadvantages at all times.
I was specifically thinking of mods like Russian Overkill or BD which completely uproot Doom's regular balance and change enemy behaviours and stuff.
I think keeping original balance is important because 90% of mods are played on custom maps - and map designers made them with original balance in mind.

>you don't get jobs for being autistically focused on balance in a 1993 game no matter how good at balance you are.
Reading comprehension? I said if you can create completely NEW game balance that throws out old stuff out the window and yet is fun and interesting and works on vanilla maps somehow - then you;re most likely as good or better designer than people at id.
And let's be honest, if you are good/better than them, you should start applying for jobs in game industry.

And balancing a game is definitely a marketable skill in game design and you can definitely get a job because of it.
90% of post-launch design of stuff like CCGs MOBAs and most other competititve games is just careful balancing, and there are definitely people on teams whose entire jobs is to balance the gameplay.

> Romero is a hack that made Doom good by accident
I think you don't understand how videogames are made.
FIRST: Most bad games are created not because their creators are hacks, but because of production problems and time/budget constraints, or overly ambitious scope.
Daikatana was WAY too ambitious, it was supposed to have a grand storyline and was supposed to be basically an action RPG with AI party members...
It was just too big, and Romero's team simply didn't have time or money to realize that vision.

In fact, I have a semi-proof of that - Game Boy Color version of Daikatana, which is MUCH less ambitious and much simpler game, is actually good - because they wanted to make it good first, rather than just grand and ambitious.

That doesn't mean Romero is suddenly a bad designer, it just proves that any creator can have a flop or two.

SECOND: The second important part to understand is that games aren't created by single person.
John Romero didn't make Daikatana alone, core dev team of Daikatana had about 40 people on it (not counting the publisher and voice talent). John Romero is only one of forty people who worked on it, and making him take all the blame for the game being bad is ridiculous.

Sin 1: Taking Away Weapons
Dont you ever fucking take away my BFG you son of a bitch. Ever.
>muh death exit

Puhleez, if you're going to include an iconDeath as an exit then provide an alternate Exit to the map which is a secret isolated teleporter or some shit so that it can be found, and the level can be left with weapons intact.

Because all im going to do is press IDFA when I get to the new map (fuck you, fuck you, fuck you) and then probably hit myself with half a rocket explosion just to make it fair.

* Sin 2: As a matter of fact id say adding weapons that replace the existing ones so that Smooth Doom wont work.

Mostly if its a half baked version of what SD already does (like the low definition shell casings and the bullet puffs that make a ricochet sound).

Or generally speaking any weapons mod with a map pack that only alters the basic weapons a little bit. If you're going to tweak them a little then just extend off of Smooth Doom weapons.

If you're going to have totally custom weapons, and custom maps, just make custom weapons with their own Map ID (since you're making the maps you have all the control) so that the player never actually gets the SSG or the Plasma Rifle or whatever.

Be courteous, know your audience.

> custom key definitions
agree with that totally
dont even use a Reload key folks unless you really have to, put that shit on AltFire.

In the case of the shotgun it better do better-for-shell damage than the SSG.

red torch

Yeah thats pretty annoying because of obvious reasons, maps can vary Quite Widely.

I found out firsthand that replacing the Chainsaw with some other thing like a Railgun was problematic all by itself. I figured it was rare enough it could count as like a bonus weapon, but something was still kinda -off- about it.

Yup learned that lesson, part of the use of the BFG is to get up square in the face of a Baron, laugh, and blow im and his friends to pieces.

If you cant get up in their face then you will have to call more Spray for it to be effective. Also the BFG really must be able to do all the damage it usually does, if not More. You can limit its ammunition (custom ammo only it provides for itself) but its got to be able to do its job.

And monsters, yep.

The only modification ive made to a vanilla monster that held its weight okay was giving the Pinky Demon a Fireball that it spits at you. But it had a weak gravity falloff and it was Speed 8 so it only had about enough range to reach maybe 700 map units and I set the Attack Range to 512 just to make sure. So its not like adding more Imps, and their fireballs made up for slowness with damage.

This allowed the Pinky to assault you from Below in the many pits that you find them in. And were ornery about hitting you in the Feet with their fireballs because you'd think you're far enough away.

This worked perfectly with giving them A_Recoil when they went to Bite you, so they'd lunge. If they fell off a ledge while trying to do that, it didnt negate their combat ability usually since they could still lob fireballs.

> aiming
agreed, characters in doom have such a WIDE ass radius that its hard to miss them, much more comparatively than real life.
I dunno how its accomplished, but about the only weapon type I can think of that this would benefit is some kinda Pistol/Magnum so it can do shit damage but occasionally prove itself useful.

There are some things you just dont do.

I didnt GAF about the enhanced Gravity Gun in Half Life 2 at the end of the game. I was pissed off to no end about losing the weapons, and about not being able to pick up any of the combine soldier's weapons. It didn't matter that the gravity gun gained an 11th hour superpower.

Having a death exit in order to raise difficulty or provide a refresh to the game doesnt make a difference because its like Artificial Difficulty at that point. Like its not stated as part of the big heading of that mod, it just fucking comes out of nowhere.

If you want to increase difficulty then you have to give the player back most of their weapons (maybe ones they didnt have before, if they somehow didnt collect them).

I supremely disdain the taking of the BFG, but, if I find a good chunk of what I had in a pile in the next map then

Map Difficulty NEEDS to be dependent on where you ARE in terms of map progression and it needs to cater to the arsenal that you've built up thus far. You do not take the player's weapons just so you can reduce the Dakka aimed at them as part of the difficulty.

Designers need to think outside the box and start combining shit that players wouldn't normally expect. Like level geometry that just makes fighting difficult or makes getting flanked really easy.

Strategic shit like crushers and deadly floors is nasty, make it so those things are obvious, yeah its over there ill walk around it or ill be careful when I have to confront it. But when you come back to that part of the map and the gates open and all the Demons come running and corner your ass against the lava - or the quick jumping you did with the crushers before now has chaingunners flanking it to make that movement more confused... there you go.

Long hallways that dont have a viable workaround - which a Cyber or Archvile just happens to be facing, dropping rockets right down the pipe at you. Maybe it wasnt there the first time thru...

Is it possible to Teleport Barrels in, ive seen items get teleported in such as shotguns, health packs, and so forth even though these items dont move around to trip a monster teleport.

If you Teleport Barrels in do they explode immediately?

See... you could make the player play hopscotch on tiles to avoid having piles of Barrels teleport in. Either because it restricts their movement or because it suddenly becomes Barrels 'O' Fun since they're under fire and some of those barrels are going to get hit.

It would be almost nothing to decorate/code a custom proximity mine, or a Barrel that explodes when it sees you. Teleport it in and suddenly BOOM you could have a pack of 4 barrels blow your ass up.

And this isnt even original thinking here, I just came up with that one off the top of my head. Ive never seen anyone use this to my knowledge.

This could even be done with a voodoo doll, rather than a crusher you have something like this set up with instant lifts, placed not too close to the voodoo doll but close enough they will wop you for a custom chunk of damage.

There are other custom versions of monsters that could be coded very simply...
For example, Chaingunners which dont need an archvile to resurrect them, who may have a certain number of self-resurrections before they're dead (5 times?) just so you can kill them until they stay dead if you like. Combined maybe with a random interval of time for how long they stay down so when you leave them you think they're dead, but they come back when you have to go through that area again.

well it is... I mean technically a Death Exit is the end of the game, when you die like this you lose, and the game engine is not supposed to progress you to the next map as a result of it either (the map where it happened you're supposed to start over again with the pistol).
If they want to make it episodic, separate it into different pk3/wads so that you can just LOAD these things up separately and play the episode you want.
> texturesAndContent.wad
> episode02.wad

Apparently these death exits are starting to become an accepted meme in the mapping community and that shit has to be put to a stop. I find it to be a supreme lack of creativity. Though if you want to make sure the player cant continue into the normal maps of the IWAD and its definitely an End to your map pack then I can see it as being appropriate (ie, like a horror movie that doesn't have a good ending, you didnt survive)

Personally I didnt encounter my first death exit style map until I played one of the 1024 megawads, thats why I skipped past it because I kept thinking I was choosing the wrong/trapped telepad to leave the map. There was no mention of it as being appropriate, it just came out of nowhere. Never heard of this shit before that, closest that came to it was the sector which ends the map when you're at low health (which im not going to screech about, because im kinda okay with that form of exit).

I will never change my mind about this.
If you want to take away a player's weapons then code a custom weapon, and modify all of the weapons to always switch to it when you pick it up (and place it right at the start of the map). That weapon has 0 Tic display frames where it eats your arsenal or at least most of it, switches to the Pistol, and then the Pistol eats the weapon-eater.
There you go, you didnt have to die to lose your arsenal. It could even get rid of specific weapons like the BFG or RL. It doesnt have to get rid of your ammo either, or it could even eat some of it.

Yeah but thats possible even with just teleporting. It sounds nifty but those chaingunners are going to come in almost immediately. At least the archvile is killable in that instance, but it is kinda restricted to that.

This thing could be a custom Shotgunner or Revenant that keeps coming back, maybe an Arachnotron up on a pedestal. All depends on what level of annoyance you want this monster to be.

I find it Very Weird how few people have a problem with this shit. Its pretty fucking crazy actually.

You literally have to cheat code warp into the next map to even reach it. After you die the Game Is Over.

It might as well be in a separate wad that you load specifically, which has that next map as map01.

TBQ honestly I had absolutely no respect for the scrubdown that happens between episodes in vanilla Doom 1 either. And this is back in the 90s when I played them as a kid too. I absolutely hated reaching the end of the episode, and I lose all my stuff.

E2M1 should be a continuation of E1M8... E3M1 should continue directly after E2M8... you should keep everything you've got as a bonus for having beaten a whole episode. They could have made it more theatric by altering the trigger at the end of the episode so that when you start the next one via map progression you're reduced to 1 Health and 0 Armor (which would have made sense for the plotline too).

Those starting maps of E2 and E3 shouldn't have been "easy"... just like Nightmare and Hell difficulty in Diablo2 arent "simply" restarts of normal difficulty. And in Doom 1 it would have made perfect sense to punish the player for choosing to start a game fresh on E2 or E3 and penalize them with a pistol start just like if they had died in E3M7.
> Vanilla Doom had pistol starts after you die for a reason... source port engines should have the option to ask the player if they want to autoload the map from a save or not.
> Since Graf is forcing everyone to abide hardcoded menu options maybe he should put one in the Gameplay section right at the top, independent of starting a new game, which causes a pistol start upon death by warping to the map you're currently in.

The biggest flaw with all of your methods of stripping player from weapons is that they don't work in vanilla. If you still don't understand why mappers do this - it's to mark an end of episode. Since Doom 2 doesn't have fancy "Pick episode" menu, mappers had to use such dirty tricks to simulate start of the new episode.
Play all the maps from pistol start you little pussy and you will not care about death exits no more.

Isnt that like a early 00's port that hasn't been touched in years or something... I for one have never used it (kinda always used zdoom, at least in tandem with edge because edge was the shit back in 2003).

Yeah and thats because they copied it off of Doom for crying out loud. I remember gandalf, I was there when the strength of men failed.

Now see thats something I can live with, its known and staked out clearly that you will have a death exit every time.

This gives me a very cool idea for how the game could have been much darker from the beginning, all the way back to the 90s.

That would have been like NiN and Alice In Chains level of edgy grunge shit right there. The only thing that could have made it edgier was using nailguns in doom.

And it would have solved the problem of arsenal escalation, in fact weapons like the BFG and Rocket would be relegated to whichever map they appear on, or could be made into secret items so that its a real bonus to find one in a given map.

Unless you refused to play the IWADs and instead jumped right into /idgames and played every map uploaded in order from 1994 onward, there's no way what you're describing is anywhere near all, most, or even many maps you've played.

>death exits

Most of the time, the map directly after a death exit is only remotely challenging if you pistol start it. Often this is because the map is designed in a Map01 ease-you-in style, or because it offers a specific challenge thats ruined completely with a BFG and cells in hand (these such cases often give you most weapons back within the level).

Doomguy has ridiculous mobility (a double jump you can use at any point in the air that gives as much height as about four normal jumps) and really fucky animations (running mid-air, sliding along the ground without moving, etc) that mesh poorly with his already fucked-up hitboxes. He also has one of the better health/armor stacks in the game (125/50), the highest for a medium character and on par with Visor who has absolutely jack shit in the way of mobility and cheese compared to Doomguy. Doomguy also has an active ability that's basically 'unga unga auto-aim at enemies and punch them in the face from thirty feet away because oops those animations don't match up either.' And he gets a speed boost on top of that.

As it stands rockets are the #1 most reliable gun in Q:C, and hitting Doom with rockets is an exercise in frustration- conversely he's free to jump over your head all day long and spew rockets from above. In previous Quakes spending time in the air made you easy lightning gun bait, but the LG in Q:C sucks fat dick at the moment due to the tiny hitboxes so you're better off trying to guess where he'll land or going for midair rockets.

they're all a mixed bag with some good levels and some annoying ones. later ones gradually become more filled with more elaborate "high quality" cacoward-bait modern design, but that doesn't necessarily translate into playing better though. also has a tendency towards maps that are too big and go on far too long to be part of a 32 map set. burnout likely before you reach the end.

It's pretty satisfying bouncing these things off the ground and into the face of a monster, and his grenade mods should be fun too, when he picks up an hatchet-tier subweapon it's gonna turn into a neat bouncer that shoots sapphire beams with every bounce.

This is why I believe the Community Chests should each be treated as compilations of standalone maps, rather than as campaigns that you play continuously.

My Upgrade is only 340KB, I did a hell of alot with that small of a package.

You are supposed to LOAD Smooth Doom first, then have the Upgrade loaded after it.

I designed it as a patch this way so that it could possibly be forwards compatible with future updates to Smooth Doom.

Fug I forgot about that shit.
The reason is because of palette changes, I altered the shorter span of tan colors in the middle of the palette to be a rusty red color, and in truth it actually kinda works for the better while you're playing the game because it makes those textures seem a tiny bit more gritty than usual.

But I don't usually play Doom1 at all (or the vanilla Doom2 wad either) so I forgot about intermission screens entirely.

Thats actually kinda a big whoops and I can fix it by putting a .png version of the intermission screen(s) in the package.

It was alright, it kind of overstayed its welcome after a while thanks to cutting the more challenging demons out. Endless Barons and Hellknights aren't much fun.
Also, I was playing the Retribution mod/version and it had a dumb glitch where map 23's teleporting yellow key goes behind the exit door, so I needed to noclip to get it. it's pretty much at the very end of the game so who cares, but it was a slight annoyance.

The best way is to use the (poor) wiki pages but more importantly the internal definitions in the zscript folder of gzdoom.pk3. It "recreates" many of the standard doom attacks and functions with zscript, so you can see how each function is actually used.

The third mode of finding out what shit actually does is having the github page for gzdoom open and searching for function names.

Anyway "learning zscript" isn't one thing since there are vast differences between making menus, status bars, event handlers and plain old monsters/weapons. The latter works like decorate except you can make your own action functions and you don't need to do stupid inventory items checks.
