A source port is never guaranteed to run on the same exact hardware as the original. Have you tried running chocolate doom on a 486? Besides, GZDoom came out in fucking 2005.

Also, the last nvidia and amd gpus to support only up to GL2 both came out in 2007 (and last intel one in 2010, but even on GL2 games it performs like absolute shite). Who in the fuck would still be using hardware THAT old in 2018?

I think why MetaDoom sort of works is why a MetaQuake or MetaWolfenstein probably wouldn't, because of these 3 reasons, specially if mixed:
>Doom is a bit more consistent, where there's still returning enemy types and weapons in later games, while Wolfenstein didn't even started off as an FPS series tarring BJ and Quake changed literal themes and went from singleplayer to multiplayer
>Doom is probably a more popular/better mod "base", compared to the other two, which is also why adding these new weapons and enemies means just finding the right spot for them, most of the time
>MetaDoom doesn't just mix these games but tries to make it fit in the traditional gameplay of Doom as well, meaning the idea of Doom having a "traditional gameplay formula" is stronger than that of Wolfenstein (stealth or action) and Quake (SP or MP)
Or maybe it's just that nobody really tried giving these two series their own "Metafication", that'd include the OG Quake expansions and stuff out of ports of Wolf 3D and RTCW.

That really depends on what you look at, there's some maps which are genuinely interesting and some which are even kind of good, but a lot of the stuff from 94' is pretty fucking trite and worthless. Everyone and their mom gave mapping a try, and most people didn't make anything particularly amazing. I'm not saying "Don't play 94' .wads", I'm just saying, a lot of them just aren't worth even looking at, because a lot of people didn't yet know what they were doing.

By 95', people had a bit more experience, some people had better computers, and there was better software, Doom 2 had come out September last year, so now there were a lot more assets for people to work with, the larger bestiary letting people get more creative.
Final Doom would come out during the summer and really show people the possibilities for the Doom 2 bestiary to a farther extent than Doom 2 itself could, people who complained that Doom was too easy now had Plutonia to really test their might.
Memento Mori also came out that year, and together with Final Doom they really set the bar for user made level sets and how to really challenge players, these megawads really sparked the golden age of 1990's Doom mapping.

People were still making a lot of crap by 1996, but there were also a lot of very serious and dedicated people who pushed for projects and visions, many who had ideas for grandiose Total Conversions and megawads of their own, who looked at Final Doom and Memento Mori, thinking "I can do that too!" or "I can do that better!", for better and for worse.
There were of course some Total Conversions before, like Aliens TC (which came out like a month after the original game was released), and there were a fucking million Star Wars TCs.

Hardware is ok for some games and not others. Virtually any game from the 90s is NOT good in hardware.
Quake3 and UT are about the only exceptions, and that was the end of the 90s.

Quake2 in hardware looked very dark and the way openGL worked back then you couldnt increase the brightness in it using the sliders. Also the textures look oddly better and nicer when displayed in software, everything looks crisper and because of the texture resolution (which is higher than Q1) the pixelation wasnt as noticeable.

Yeah but nothing about hardware emulation is necessary to display truecolor mode. A number of games also proved that you could have dynamic lights (even colored ones) without hardware emulation too. And the resolution is irrelevant (though any non-integer multiple of 320x200 will cause deformation in doom)

Smear and Smoothing are what kills the aesthetic of retro games. You'd need much more detailed level architecture to complete the equation of improving texture resolution, and you dont get both with a retro game even if you use a high res texture pack.

Its not hard to have it capable of doing everything it currently does under software mode. In fact remove OpenGL from Software altogether, dont even call upon it or include it, OpenGL was never really designed for software rendering since it was always about plugging into low level hardware operations.

There are all sorts of other APIs that can be used for software graphics that can include Everything that is being used right now and can do more too (sprite rotations, additive and translucent, native functions to doom code, and also running natively in Truecolor while respecting palettes and performing post-processing on graphics... such as Hue/Saturation/Lightness shifts).

The thread for HD says that from vanilla maps, E1 maps 1-4, E2M2, E3M1-4, and D2 maps 1-6, 12, 14,15 work pretty well with Hideous Destructor.

So, I had a thought - how about a mapping project that would rework remaining vanilla maps to better fit Hideous Destructor? Like, add more cover, more flanking routes, less monsters (but more imps and hitscanners), less big open spaces and each room having more exits, elevated platforms for sniping so Marksman won't be so useless of a class, monster closets being replaced with sections where you're stuck in cover and have to defend against teleporting waves of hellspawn - stuff like that.

>> No.4671969

I think you'd have to change a LOT to make it actually work as an arcade game, take a couple of cues from Wolf3D and ROTT, but also cues from real arcade games.

Arcade play should be about fast action, so the levels would be a lot less about exploration and stuff, and much more about linear progression. There'd still be secret areas to look for, and there'd be larger wide areas for bosses and arena battles, but I don't think offshoot paths with mazes where you look for a key would quite suite arcade, it'd slow things down, off paths would at the least have to be made simple and straight forward.
You'd have an Knee Deep In The Dead inspired level, a Shores Of Hell level, an Inferno level, and a Thy Flesh Consumed kind of level for the first set. Then you'd have three Hell On Earth levels and one Master level for the second set. The third set is Final Doom, being harder, two Evilution levels, then two Plutonia levels.
These would have to be all new levels designed for this arcade play, you pick any of the sets you want.

>> No.4671971

For the gameplay, most monster behavior is fine, but weapons and powerups would be changed to keep things expedient and simple.
You'd have the melee slot, starting with the chainsaw, but with the berserk powerup you'd punch with your fists and do really high damage, and to incentivize players to be willing to go into melee at the risk of their limited lives, it maybe also gives a speed boost and a damage resistance boost, however the powerup only lasts a minute.
The pistol is out, too worthless, instead you begin with the shotgun, it has infinite ammo and pumps a little faster, but like every six shots it does a brief reload animation, this gives you a weapon which is a good mainstay against anything not really large, but also doesn't give you something extremely exploitable.
These two are always in two of your weapon slots, the shotgun can be upgraded to the super shotgun in some levels.
Then you'd have two other slots for Big Guns, which can be found, the game would generally be generous with these, especially on harder levels.

>> No.4671972

The chaingun has no reload, coming instead with a large ammo pool (maybe 400rds), but it has a brief spinup/spindown time, while shooting twice as fast, also doing a cool spray of tracers.
When you're out, you just drop the weapon.
The plasma would come with a pool of 200 shots, but is really powerful, having also a 50% chance to overpenetrate any enemy (which it can do repeatedly).
The rocket launcher would come with say 25 rockets, which are just as powerful as usual, but they have a slightly wider splash damage, AND, you have 80% damage resistance to the splash damage, so you can play dangerous with it.
The BFG9000 is much the same in its tracer behaviors and "cone", having a rocket style splash on impact (only 50% resistance for you), also shooting out a handful of (green) plasma balls on up to 6 nearby enemies when exploding, these basically having the same characteristics as the other ones, same overpenetration potential.
You can only fire 8 shots though, and it's almost always found in a secret or rewarded for a boss fight, often there's a good opportunity for you to use it on a large group of enemies after it appears, so it feels like you get to use the really cool gun on something worthwhile, rather than feeling you're wasting it, or feeling forced to keep it in your inventory and wait for a good opportunity.

Health pickups would be somewhat limited to incentivize the purpose of extra lives, but treasure items act like small health /armor bonuses, and count towards score, and score rewards you with extra lives.
I'd also say the stylings should be much like the original games, maybe add some flashy effects like dynamic lights, maybe jucier gore (I like Nash's), possibly some rain effects in one or two levels.
It shouldn't go full Brutal though.

Music should be instrumental remixes of classic Doom tracks, even including Final Doom music.
Obviously, the game should also be made for two player co-op, difficulty adjusting when there's a second player

>> No.4671978

The Big Guns are extra powerful because there'll be fairly plenty of monsters, and also there'll be some extra strong monsters sometimes (which can generally be a pallette swap with a changed detail, like different heads or something).

FDA + Review - Atonement map04 'H20 Extraction Zone'


H20 Extraction Zone is far and away the best map in Atonement so far. Most of the map is the along the lines of the previous three but then you get outside and it's absolutely awesome.

The red key area features a giant fight where you don't even feel like it's monsters vs you, it's a big free for all. This fight is preceded by you slaughter large groups of zombiemen, sargents and imps which really lay the ground work for it. The build up is fantastic and the midi matches the tone of it all.

This set piece combined with all the positive qualities of the previous maps make it the best one so far.

I don't quicksave unless a map is long, brutally hard, or there is an obvious death trap infront of me like a platforming/tightrope walk over acid/lava.

I made one of the maps in JOM5, and the most disappointing thing about watching people play it was the insane amount of quicksaving they did. It completely broke the flow of my map by allowing them to soldier on through one bad decision after another, and they denied themselves the chance to actually understand the map, because their constant quicksaving meant they could just blunder on ahead without consequence, never having a clue what was actually going on in the level.

HKs, Barons, and Revenants will destroy you if you use the chainsaw on them. Revs have just a low enough pain chance they can still pool-cue your head a couple times (and taking two whacks of 6 melee dice is not my definition of effective).
> you might be able to manage skeletons if you pop a couple rockets into their group first, and pull back on the saw so that if you see them about to complete a swing you can disengage. Dropping their HP with the rockets will give them a lot less time to try a punch.

Arachs and Mancubes are the ones to go after with the saw... Mancube *can* waste you but its kinda rare. Its kinda satisfying seeing a huge meat shield like that just go down from a tier 0 weapon. Arachs is like logging in a forest.
> its also delectably perfect for going after pain elementals, because when they bust the skulls will fail-spawn due to you being there.

It could be argued that it's my own fault for not taking quicksaves into account for the design of the map, but if I did, I would've probably been encouraged to design a map that was a series of progressively difficult encounters and nasty surprises, rather than what I made, which was a map that bares everything almost immediately and says to the player 'on your fucking toes, faggot'.

I think I've been at Advanced for a while. I can't break the grid in Doom, it's much easier to do when you're working in an engine from 2000+ because a lot of the time you're modeling stuff and placing it and you can throw things down at an angle without worrying about sectors overlapping or getting fucked up.

Im not really a mapper but I would have to place myself at Advanced because I have alot of off the wall ideas, combined with also wanting to do alot of vertical stuff like catwalk networks, storage container mazes, underground parking garages (or some combo of this like being on a derilict cargo ship, and being able to go in the cargo bay under it, while having numerous doors in the narrow hallways appear to be welded shut or crushed/deformed).
> I also tend to favor Big Maps, the kind you would have for 12-16 players, I just dont like tight little bloodbath maps with barely as much floorspace as a big house.

I dont really know how to use the map editors for doom or other games though, and I dont think I can make good textures from scratch either to compliment maps.

Meant to say Expert but I guess since I dont actually do mapping, might as well dock that by one rank. I also learn by example so having seen alot of interesting map layouts primes me for doing similar things (but recombining with other ideas ive got).

Also you guyz need to do general sketches of maps on paper (because thats native and easy) before you settle down to actually work on it. And dont do it on graph paper with extreme detail either because otherwise you might as well be using the map editor at that point. Basic sketch means determining general shape of areas, how they connect to each other, general layout... this way when you get the map editor fired up you know where you're going to put these rooms and you can just focus on the details after that.
> while you're sitting there figuring out what to draw, you can get alot of interesting ideas as your mind wanders... its a different kind of prompting system for the brain when you're using the map editor because its much more carefree to just erase on paper or just toss the paper away... in the map editor its almost like answering questions on a test since its harder to undo that work

And you guyz need to focus on three dimensional spaces... floors over floors and structures over structures. In GZ at least (heck even hexen supported this) you can do portals to connect areas so that you can lay out multi-leveled structures without complicating things overly. Just dont rely on 90s level sperging of teleporters to get around or even get someone out of lava.

Take it any way you want, I dont care. I could probably make something real awesome if I gave a shit to put the time into it, but with all the other good stuff that comes out in the community it would just be another thing floating in the ocean.

As far as doom mapping goes im not sure how to make sure my lines have the right facing, ive tried to make things before and come to find out those structures are all invisible. Im also not sure how to do texture placement for (sidedefs, I think)... things like guard rails and shoot-through jail bars.
> Since Slade's map editor has What-You-See capabilities I dont think id have misaligned textures, as long as I had the autism to go back and check every corridor.
> Also having examined some levels, ive learned the way the engine does slopes is by placing a specific entity in the sector. Same with teleporters. So ive got that down.
These technical issues aside the rest of it just however much autism I want to focus on the map design, the details, the size, texture combinations, etc etc

Im really kinda more experienced with 2d and object-based mapping like Warcraft, C&C, Xcom, that sorta thing.

Just came up with this awesome idea for a pachinko machine to teleport monsters around the map at random (something beefy like HKs, like have 30 of them in a monster teleporter and they get distributed randomly). Because that room would lead to a few teleporters, that would send them to other rooms designed to either mix them with existing monsters or get split up and go into teleporters that lead all over the map.
> a huge monster room could also teleport monsters at random into this matrix thus allowing a huge mix too

Latest autism from Marisa also gives me ideas for traps involving cyberdemons.

Because when the cyber is above you they might hit their own floor with rockets, but when the cyber is Below you their rockets are only going to hit ledges that you're on.
> the ledges can be sloped, with sprite obstacles blocking the player from falling but not blocking the explosive damage
> the path upwards could be a steady slope or set of very slow progressing stairs, along with plenty of stalagtites, trees, and flaming barrels to slow the player down
> interspersed with explosive barrels that can become angrily triggered by the rocket explosions
> small actual level-structure based pilons can be used for cover... from the Spider Mastermind, but when they're small enough they wont provide cover against explosions.

Another old trick I thought of is having a pipe the player has to go down to flip switches, but the alcove for it isnt exactly big enough to hide in, and on either end of this pipe is a Cyber who can lob rockets through it, and an Arch behind a bunch of metal bars (hard to target) who can light you up if you're taking cover from the cyber (maybe this pipe fans out a little bit but there's a scenery object there to catch the rocket hits so the player can be targeted by an offset Arch, still damaged by the explosions if they hunker there, and the rocket damage will not hit the Arch)
> adding distance to it will also make it harder for the player to tell if rockets have been launched, have to run their ass off then start getting lit up by the Arch on the other side.

Another trap, deathtrap mainly, is a convenient maybe easy to bump into teleporter that has to be avoided while fighting other shit. Because it teleports you in the holding pen for the Cyber and he blows you apart (but the cyber is blocked from going in that teleporter square, so you cant telefrag him). Make it a white colored teleporter pad so it looks important...

I disagree, that just slows things down for no good reason.

>> No.4674546

Another trap idea - get teleported in a playpen with a couple archviles. They're blocking the way to the teleporter on the other side of the cage. However on top of this there are chaingunners or mancubes in the distance who will also be shooting at you too. Dealing with the Arch's will take some time and even if they dont burn you, youll still get ranged for quite abit.
> later on in the level more monsters teleport into the areas the chain/mancubes were at, just in case the arch's got pissed and killed them
Also I think the maximum range on archvile fire is 896, so if the ranged attackers are placed at a lengthy distance the archviles will not flame them.
> mfw in order to get 100% kills, the player will have to come back here and kill the additional monsters that teleported in, and this little arena is only truly accessible from here... as soon as you go through the teleporter to leave there will be shutters that come up protecting them from fire from other locations in the map

Make the player have to obligatory go through this room at least once to press a switch because it will temporarily lower a cover over it (which means they'll probably have to go through here twice, first just to kill the arch's, then a second time to be able to get to the switch in time - if they BFG the arch's they could make it the first time though).

>> No.4674554

I would like to do things with Spider Masterminds too, have to make sure the player cant get up close so that the BFG kill is harder. The main problem with it is they're so big, so I thought of an idea similar to the typical "lower the barrier so it can get in the teleporter" deal. Have random trap pads the player can step on during the course of the level depending on which way they decide to go. That way you can have random destinations for the Spider(s) to go to. Including having another spider drop in right after you kill one (I LOVE this idea... you think you killed it but there's actually 2 more spiders in line and it just teleports another one in... hey bosses are only worth 1 kill after all)

Regarding the texture's dimensions, I'm thinking of doubling the size of the 32x32 ones and leaving the big ones as they are. Do you have any suggestions? I don't know if there are standart sizes for textures based on applicability.

>> No.4674565

I'm no expert but it seems like doubling the 32px ones would end up with them too blurry and shitty looking. Although if you plan on remastering them maybe they could look good. Seems like it'd be easier to composite them into bigger textures though. 128px is the standard size for Doom textures, although there are a few outliers like steps, some doors, and midtextures.

>> No.4674570

Also who's that super-manucbus mofo in Skulltag that spits out so many fireballs at the same time? That bastard looks awesome to have for ranged bombardment or to come in at the front/back of a monster teleport wave.
> if at the front it can effectively suppress the player while other monsters start coming in
> if at the back, it can mop up an infighting crowd or catch the player off guard
> ranged bombardment would cover a wide swath of area making the player have to move quickly over crevasse/chasm architecture

Using strategy to pin the player down, think out of the box, or force them to take chances, and do things they normally wouldn't do because they dont otherwise have to.

Im also a big fan of letting the player Jump. So any maps I made would be built around requiring jumping, or at least protecting against being broken by jumps. Vertical navigation is also exploitable for nailbiting moments such as when you're under fire, being unable to dodge side to side can fuck you when you have to deal with HK/Baron.

Leaving the angles behind does make it a tiny bit harder to preserve texture alignment, but the major issue involved with doom anyway is that the floor textures (flats) are always going to be aligned one way or another. So any areas that arent 45/90 will have to be filled with carpeted/pebble/liquid texture floors so that their patterning doesnt mismatch.

Theoretically to prevent a mismatch you could still use Hexagon tile floors and run an area with 30/60 degree walls. Might also be capable of laying down some kind of "trimming" over the edges of the floor to cover up where the wall would meet the floor, giving some notion of square tiles that were laid to fill the area but no cut-tiles laid against the area covered up by the trim.
> think actual real life architecture here, its a PITA when you have to put floor tiling in an area that it doesnt equally match up to.
