I really, REALLY want to mod in Build rather than Doom engine, but is just a pain in the ass compared with doom, so little info about modding aside of mapping, I wanted to make my own game/total conversion in Build but it seems that that's just not gonna happen, at least any time soon.

BloodGDX just got updated with custom RFF support, meaning you can now run even the most complicated mods (like Alone in the Dark and Bloody Pulp Fiction) just by dropping them into a separate folder without replacing any of the original files.
At this point, BGDX can be considered feature complete. Everything works well and the port is really stable. The next step is making all the game mechanics accurate to the point when BDGX can play original demos without going out of sync.

You know shit about programming and reverse engineering, right? Leaked source is absolutely useless at this point and reverse engineering is like super hard and may take months to get proper restults.

No, it was never able to run demos without going out if sync pretty quickly. The funniest this that it's mostly not because of the enemies' AI, but particles (blood, sparks etc.).

> that shitty maze?

You didn't realize it was possible to jump above the maze almost straight from the start, did you? You can do it from the start using enemies, and even without using enemies at all a bit later on

Actually by baiting a Liztroop and jumping on him you can even reach a teleporter that lets you skip the entire first part of the map, and which is supposed to only be use-able in co-op:


>> No.4524354

I prefer playing maps like they are intended to play. Skipping parts are utterly lame and hate those faggots who say Hotel Hell is their favourite level because you can skip the entire thing.

There ain't too much Duke Nukem user maps worth praising. I somewhat agree with the guy shitting on boat tripping level: I feel the same way about roch maps and a lot of user maps are done in a similiar style. Really hate those microdetailed cramped enviroments with boring standard fare shotgun/chaingun/5 rpg shots combat encounter.

The thing with DN3D is that most usermaps don't have the same goals as the original games.
They don't intend to be 'classic' but instead more people are interested in coming up with crazy texture combinations, effects and detailing using the stock game. They can be good but in their own ways.

I mean about a decade ago some guy came out of nowhere and made the most crazy overdetailed maps ever... and later on he admitted never having even beaten the original game and played all its maps.

There was a sort of 'classic style revival' at some point but it didn't really caught on, the fact that usermap activity is decreasing doesn't help, though I think some people became really aware of the big common usermaps flaws and tried to avoid them for the most part.

This being said even the new maps in World Tour were guilty of many "usermap flaws", like decorative doors, obvious invisible walls because you really want that 'cool looking unreacheable place', useless sprites made for detailing getting in the way, and so forth.

>> No.4529065

Is there any patch for Powerslave that makes controls tolerable? I can't even control the camera with the mouse while strafing.

>> No.4529090

Yeah, especially Red Ruckus and Tour de Nukem were at fault for this.

In the original 4 episodes every detail, sign etc. had a meaning. They were there for a reason. A few weird ideas popped up like the "Funny Boner Comedy Club" or the "Alley Cat Lounge", but that was rare.

In said two maps, there is a shitload of whocares, like unreachable pharmacies, night clubs and whatever. The mapper compensated the lack of ideas with these irrelevant stuff. Remove these and you get a very standard user level.

That said many times here, but only the Egypt and San Francisco maps reached the quality of the original game. At least they reached it so much, they are now my favourite Duke levels and both worth revisiting for the hundreth time.

Typical userlevel flaws that make level worse:

1. Fake doors and fake details (that boat trippin' level even had fake buttons and other weird shit like a shark picture). It compenstates for the lack of ideas and looks hideous.

2. Ugly colours on walls and sprites including monsters. If some use colours, at least try adding different properties to the monster. Size also matters. The x and y coordinate should be around the same to have a proper look.

3. Overuse of keycards and buttons. Learn the original game how to use them. They separate different areas or introduce something new or add something more dangerous, and not just rooms that have another keycard and some monsters spawn. Some pro maps can be big as shit with one keycard or two.

4. Confusing layout like hidden vents at the roof or multibutton combinations with barely to see clue. Or simply you can't find the keycard or it's door because you need to enter a barely to see secret location for it.

5. Linear layout without freedom for playthrough (and replay value). Also the lack of conceptual grandness.

6. 1000th remake of Hollywood Holocaust, Hotel Hell or Dark Side. They were good maps on their own, they don't need to be remade with some ugly stuff thrown in.

I didn't mind Red Ruckus, other than the fact that the main joke "he's not supposed to be here?" needs to be explained to be understood unless you can read Russian and actually NOTICED the sign; but Tour De Nukem is horrible in that aspect.

Atomic Edition is what came out in 1997, with The Birth extra episode

Megaton is a modern sourceport released for sale a few years ago, it had the advantage of having the add-ons included, and as a result eduke32 became compatible with the way the add-ons were handled in megaton, meaning that you can just use the .grp files from Megaton to play the add-ons in EDuke32.

Early beta with 2 levels that are very different from the final versions.

>> No.4537227

I haven't tried it but this looks interesting. higher resolution you say?

Anyway - for me the main problem with the game is how once you allow strafe-running and turning at the same time, you can make longer leaps and sequence break in literaly every single level due to the speed boost from strafe-running.... Any idea how to nullify that speed boost? the game is clearly not designed with it in mind

Not sure. Strafing is slow as fuck in this game and strafe running is barely any faster that just walking.

Are you sure? I ripped them from Exhumed PC CD.

>> No.4537346

>Strafing is slow as fuck in this game and strafe running is barely any faster that just walking.

Not if you use "strafekey"+"right/left", instead of using "strafeleft" and "straferight" keys. You get much faster strafing that way. In fact if you use strafekey+mouse movement you even get an insanely fast glitched strafing.
This is from the Build side of the code, not the game side, because Tekwar has the same issues.

>Are you sure?

Yeah I just checked, look at track_02.ogg, that's the intro to the console version, compare it to the intro of the DOS version.

There are tons of shitty rips and beta versions around of the game on shovelware sites, it's harder to find a proper version. Also hopefully you based your work on the final version, for Powerslave the date on the exe should be September 24 1996, and March 19 1997 for Exhumed.

Not that for a few tracks the Powerslave version has wrong cuts. What I mean is that some musics don't loop properly: in some cases you can hear the start of the next music before it stops and loops back,
The Exhumed version has this fixed

Nice to see some more interest in the game though, I'll check your patch when I have time

Found ps.exe from September, but it doesn't work with Dehacker. No idea what's the difference between these two.

Redneck Rampage has a very simple point to it. And that point is "What's it to you?". In other words, Redneck Rampage's main point is that, despite being a game made in first-person perspective, it is NOT about you, the player, whoever you are (since if you were anything like the characters depicted there, you wouldn't be playing "Redneck Rampage" in the first place; those people have other means to entertain themselves during their free time - and some of those means, in a very caricaturized form, are extensively depicted in Redneck Rampage itself; besides, I don't think there is a single desktop PC depicted in the entirety of game). And yes, you may very well think, that those people are some inbred degenerates, that spend their lives residing in utter shit. But, ultimately, noone of them either asked you, player, to voice your fucking opinion, or even invited you to their fucking homes. And, for what it's worth, they seem to be pretty okay with the sort of ambiance they furnished around themselves. So, at least until one starts to violate your rights in some way not with their presence, but with their actual actions, just try to mind your own personal business, k?

That seems to me the ultimate point of RR, memelulz or no memelulz.

Also, in Downtown Hickston, I think, there is a wall with a writing on it, which says something along the lines of "Please Dear Lord, give me strength to keep my goddamn nose out of other people's business" (in its original form this phrase probably sounded much funnier). And that's pretty much it.

Also, come to think of it, it's not all that funny, since what the majority of this game depicts is trespassing first and foremost.

However, here is the thing. Rednecks themselves, maybe, didn't invite me to thier homes. But the developers of Redneck Rampage did invite me to their game. There were ads, and it's supposed that I've paid for this game.
And this game is not all that hospitable, to be honest.
It's not that it's rough around the edges, it's more like it's intentionally annoying. And that, combined with a fact that it's ultimately a product, however you see it, casts a pretty unappealing light onto it, and frames not only rednecks themselves, but also the developers just as well, as presumptuous and impudent.

SC-55 has an official Roland-made emulator - and yes, one CAN make it a default Windows MIDI device, and one CAN make DOSBox play MIDI music through it.

For older Windows systems (XP and such, 32bit only, 64bit still possible, but supposedly very tricky - see corresponding themes on vogons) the emulator is called RVSC (Roland/Edirol Virtual Sound Canvas). For newer systems (Win7 and later) the emulator is called Roland Sound Canvas VA.

Also, older, pre-SoundCanvas, non MIDI-compatible Roland cards (MT-32 and CM-32L - the latter is superior) have their own emulator (unofficial), called Munt. Although it doesn't concern any of the Build FPS games, or even Doom, since MT-32 was pretty much already dead by the time it came out.

Naturally. Cause they are BIG. And stuff. Come to think of it, the whole deal with the invisible walls galore in AllenBlum's levels from WorldTour episode, could be due to his attempts to make those levels seem MUCH BIGGER than they actually are. Dunno what's up with that gigantomania.

Anyway, I liked High Times, but it's a level built around a single gimmicky scene, that isn't even original. Granted, it only appeared in Lunatic Fringe, that is, E2's secret level, and, as such, it wasn't really all that "canon" in relation to the main game (more so due to impossible geometry clashing with a "realistic" theme Duke was pushing). Due to that, HighTimes' gimmick worked due to, well, an unexpected mixing of a realistic overall level setup with a gimmick from pretty much a joke level of sorts.

Come to think of, Mirage Barrage has quite a similar switch of contexts in one single level, I mean, you know, Earth level mixed with a cosmic one? But that's more straightforward. HighTimes switch of real and non-real, canon and non-canon, was way more elegant. It's a shame it was pretty much the only noteworthy thing in the entire level.

>> No.4566941

Also, I really like the boss level from World Tour. Granted, it's pretty much DNF in its level-design, and it's VERY HEAVILY built around pistolstart, but, well, it's really well balanced. If you pistolstart, you just barely squeeze through, making every single bullet and every single hitpoint count and using every single nook and cranny around you to gain some sort of advantage, that would allow you to proceed with minimal resources wasted. Yeah, it's linear as fuck, but, well, it's a challenge course and an exercise at resource and level layout management, and it just fucking... works, and it works really well. IF you pistolstart, that is. If you don't, it simply falls apart.

Why is Blood so gosh darn hard? Am I supposed to constantly quick save/quick load?

>"muh realism" gimmick

Duke is not Doom, it's at its best when it's being Duke and not being Doom. The psuedo-realism of the environments was what made the game more interesting than Quake to a lot of people. Even the space levels, most of them, were built like they actually served some kind of purpose.

I like how Blum used size for his advantage. Even his old maps like Hollywood Holocaust, Death Row, Fusion Station, Dark Side, Duke Burger or Derelict look massive and big in some parts.

Switch of context works very well in Duke 3D, especially in the bigger levels.

I started to play Blood for the first time recently and yeah it's fucking hard as balls. Mostly because of how unbalanced it is. You get dynamite as one of your first weapons and super easy to kill yourself with dynamite if you don't know what you're doing. But I'm getting better as I keep playing and because I know where the enemies are hiding after dying so many times

Blood has some really bad leveldesign and texturing. I also hate the dynamite too, annoying to use.
