It is supposed to be. There's not a Doom IWAD where it isn't replaced within seconds of starting anyway.
>What can be done to fix the handgun problem in games?
Literally not a problem. Pistols have always been useless so that the simple action gameplay still has an advancement system. You start at the bottom. This is how games should be.

Anyone else feel like megawads were a mistake? I much prefer the length of episodes and I rarely bother to finish entire megawads.

>> No.4948889

Weird to see /doom/ always saying how weapon mods should make all guns be useful for the sake of balance, which is a common criticism of mods like Complex Doom and Brutal Doom. And games like Halo and Goldeneye actually make pistols good and viable. Yet now we have this post saying that the original doom pistol is the exception somehow and how the fact that it sucks is a actually a good thing.

Hint, there's nothing wrong with pistols being the worst gun in the game, what is wrong is making it suck so much to the point of becoming obsolete. You said it yourself, you get a shotgun early on in Doom iwads, doesn't that tell you about how the pistol has no reason to exist other than those few moments before you get a shotgun, let alone the chaingun making it 100% obsolete?

Often I find even the big name ones people don't shut up about have a drop off in quality about 2/3 of the way through it, mostly resulting in transitioning from well thought out maps to badly thought out slaughtermaps.

Kind of makes me think the people who go on about those maps don't make it to the end.

>> No.4948895

Simply giving it a unique ammo type would give it inherent usefulness.

>> No.4948897

Completely disagree. I play with mods involving progression like DRPG, WoC and other weapon/monster mods in general, and having to reset my progress every few levels is just asinine. And even if I used cheats to avoid that, I would be overpowered for the first map of the next episode. Those kinds of mods were made for megawads, because it's at that length that you get most if not all of their intended content and the amount of progress is longer and more rewarding.

But people never shut up about what you just said, about megawads turning into slaughter maps later on. I see it a lot more often than actually praising megawads.

I'm not bothered at all, because actual slaughtermaps are a lot, lot more brutal than what you see in all the classic megawads. If you think the "big name ones" are too scary for you, god forbid you try out Sunder or Chillax, actual slaughterwads, you will have a heart attack on their first map. Even Plutonia's second secret level, Go 2 It, which could be classified as the oldest iconic slaughtermap, is a walk in the park because of how easy you can hide yourself from enemy fire throughout the whole map. It's proof that enemy count alone doesn't matter much, and I feel like that alone makes people think the last maps of a known megawad might be slaughterwads, when enemy placement matters more.

It's hardly balance if you are never compelled to upgrade your weapon.

Absolutely not. Useless pea-shooters used to be the rule, Doom is not an exception at all. Surely you don't mean to tell me you found Duke's peashooter, Q2's blaster & shotgun or Half-Life's glock useful when you has access to any other weapon with a decent ammo supply?

>the fact that it sucks is a actually a good thing.
It's a good thing that it's shit because that allow level creators to make (vanilla) maps where you have nothing. If the game started you with something as effective as the mid-tier weapons you'd never be in a situation where you were hopelessly outgunned.
How do you make a lone Baron of Hell even slightly dangerous? By giving the player a pistol with 50 bullets and nothing else. If you had a weapon as useful as the shotgun or chaingun it'd be a 3 second distraction, not a battle.

Completely missing the point of my post and also claiming I said something I didn't. I never said you did. I said it was strange to see an opinion like yours in a place like this where the general consent is the opposite. It's like if you went to /k/ and in the middle of a thread you saw someone saying guns are for retards and should be banned.

>It's hardly balance if you are never compelled to upgrade your weapon.
What? Nobody said anything about no upgrades, I told you it's perfectly okay for the pistol to be the worst weapon, which is the case in other games I mentioned and thus you are compelled to upgrade it, what's different is that the guns in those games are more useful than the one in Doom. If you suddenly lost all your guns besides your pistol, you'd still gladly press on in those games, but not in Doom where the game would suddenly turn into a survival horror game.

>when you has access to any other weapon with a decent ammo supply?
See above, good pistol doesn't mean other weapons can't be better.
>because that allow level creators to make (vanilla) maps where you have nothing
Except they'd just start out with your fists if the pistol was good, helps that the fist is upgradeable. Not to mention, you get shotguns early on anyhow.
> If the game started you with something as effective as the mid-tier weapons you'd never be in a situation where you were hopelessly outgunned.
Completely false, the games I mentioned have good pistols yet you can easily die if you're not careful, especially on higher difficulties. Hell, Doom itself has dangerous situations even if you have the best guns in the game, it's not like wads all become a joke just because you get mid tier weapons, let alone the bfg.
>a lone Baron of Hell even slightly dangerous?
A baron can only be dangerous based on enemy placement and map design, i.e a tight area where you can't avoid his extremely slow projectiles easily. He's just an imp with higher stats after all.

>> No.4948946

HL pistol is good, helps that you don't get a shotgun 3 seconds later. Even later on I still found myself using it to kill some headcrabs here and there, which are common enemies.

>> No.4948949

The HL1 Pistol is actually stronger than the MP5 if I remember right, and is really accurate for headshots at medium to potentially long ranges. The big problem is that against Marines, you'll be fighting most of them at close to medium range so the MP5's DPS outdoes the Pistol's and overtakes it in utility for the mid-game. Still, the Pistol can do a fair amount of damage if you use it right and remains useful until the Alien Grunts start showing up and being real assholes.

>> No.4948979

>He's just an imp with higher stats after all.
While I agree with the rest of your post, this statement has always annoyed me. A Baron's very low pain chance completely changes how it works compared to an imp beyond just inflated HP.

All of those are still useful in different ways even after you get stronger guns, unlike the Doom pistol. Frankly, I wish they'd just given the player the Alpha rifle as a starting weapon with a faster rate of fire, while also buffing that same trait for the chaingun. Bullet weapons in Doom are kinda underwhelming in general, so I feel that would've made them more fun to use without going too far into OP territory.

So I built a big map a few months ago that's basically multiple levels in one, separated into different areas involving a cave with an underground lava area, a frozen computer station with a swimming part, and also a sewage-type area with poison all over, each with its own mini boss and main boss, and a final boss room too. I've spent a number of weeks on it learning to utilize 3D floors, translucent effects for windows, reflections, and even a basic enemy spawn after you've already gotten to the end of an area. Although it's big and features over half an hour of gameplay (I did a couple speed runs through it on UV, beating it between 35-45 minutes, I feel it could use a lot more rooms that have meaning other than hitting a switch or picking up a key or just to kill some monsters, and a bit more of a mazey structure to make it like a metroidvania style WAD. Does anyone have any downloads that could be used as examples as to how I could accomplish something better?

Infinite/recharging ammo.

>> No.4949094

Serious Sam actually does this with the starting revolvers which have infinite ammo, but need to be reloaded in order to balance things out somewhat. You'd use it if you wanted to pick off weaker enemies from a distance like Kamikazes without wasting ammo for other weapons. I guess the pistol in Doom could be made similar in function and DPS to the revolvers in Serious Sam, but as a result you'd lose out on the initial scramble of finding a better weapon first when pistol starting a map. Maps designed around pistol starts tend to have a wider sense of progression where you first start off as absolutely weak in hopeless solutions and then slowly move on to the big guns. It wouldn't be the same if you could start out with the assault rifle.

>What can be done to fix the handgun problem in games?

The pistol should be positioned to be the most long range, precise and fast weapon when compared to ***early*** more powerful weapons like shotguns and rocket launchers.

Also there must be enemies that are a waste to kill with advanced weapons. Think of the bee on Shadow Warrior or Headcrab in Half-Life.

It also helps when the pistol is a fine weapon to handle and it's seen as a satisfaying "hard-way-to-do-the-job" and "pro-player-choice" to solve things.

Seriously, there are many games that do this right.

Anyone think it would be more elegant if pain states were inflicted by dealing enough hits in a short timeframe instead of being determined by chance on hit? It's like random bullet spread on weapons to enforce certain roles. Some weapons will clearly be too inaccurate at longer ranges, but the possibility exists that you can get a lucky shot off nonetheless.

Pain chances as they are do work as intended and give weapons with a higher amount of bullets/pellets fired per second a higher chance of inflicting a pain state, but it still leads to moments where chance can play some role in success.

For Imps and zombies where the pain chance is super high anyways it's rarely noticeable, but for the Archvile which has the lowest pain chance in the game, it's very much up to chance whether a super shotgun blast will stun an Archvile out of his flame pillar attack so you can get another super shotgun blast in without moving back into cover.

Pain chances are honestly minor enough in the grand scale of things because they only have a few negative edge cases, but edge cases nonetheless. I don't mind RNG, but RNG should ideally pertain to variations in enemy attacks rather than determining whether I get an easy window of opportunity or not (like how enemies in Descent would patrol alongside certain routes or move about randomly so you don't EXACTLY know where all enemies in a room are). With a stun gauge of sorts the frequency of pain states would be more consistent and controllable at the very least, maybe open up some additional means of inflicting additional hitstun. I read elsewhere that the pain chance in Quake increases if you shoot an enemy from behind or when you shoot an enemy in an attacking state.

Like most things, talking about mechanics in isolation is not particularly useful because they're meant to be part of surrounding mechanics and design decisions that create an overall dynamic. In a Doom level that's starved for ammo, the pistol fires so slowly that you won't be able to meaningfully fight most enemies (though you could take on pinkies and even zombiemen with your fists if you had to), so you're compelled to book it from many fights. In Duke, your pistol has separate ammo and can easily stunlock many enemies with it (including troopers who drop more pistol ammo), and you can mash the boot while shooting to up your damage, so you have more of a fighting chance than Doom (not to mention that there's an inventory system that can give you other means of defense than just ammo and weapons). Serious Sam gives you an infinite pistol, but enemies never drop ammo, so you're compelled to pull them out when you want to save ammo in your better guns.

Each contributes to their own feel, and aren't inherently better or worse than another; they just create their own dynamics and tactical decisions.

Do it like the Duke Nukem 3D pistol; has decent accuracy at range for shooting switches and stuff, has it's own ammo pool, so it's never made obsolete by having its ammo being used by a better weapon (even if it's a weak weapon in general, it can remain a reliable backup), it shoots rapidly so it's actually decent for close combat, however, it has to be reloaded every 12 rounds, a rather fast reload, but it prevents the pistol from taking on the role of the machinegun.

This. Also, Unreal was mentioned in the thread, where it was kept relevant with upgrades. Blood just got rid of pistol entirely, and it was for the better - flare gun is a weapon that never goes obsolete in the game. The Outlaws is a good example of moving in the other direction, though it is highly dictated by its setting - there is no "starter" guns or usual power progression really, as the enemies stay more or less the same.

It's hard to imagine how much more you need than a launcher that lets you choose a source port, wad loading order, maybe a map/difficulty chooser, maybe the ability to save configs, and command line stuff. It looks like SSG Launcher integrates Oblige in so you can have it generate maps from the launcher and automatically start with them, Rocket Launcher lets you configure Dosbox as well (though apparently it's buggier than ZDL), and Doom Launcher lets you search and download directly from /idgames and does some automagical stuff to more easily go through your downloaded wads. I guess Doom Launcher looks like it has the most immediately useful features, though I think it'd personally mess up how autistically I organize my wad folders. I use Quickly Launchering GZDoom for GZ and ZDL for everything else, but I could probably just delete QLGZ and use ZDL for everything if I wanted to.

I don't think literally anyone here ever said your starting weapon should be the end-all-be-all weapon at any point.
Nor would it have to be to remain useful.

It's the second weakest weapon in Duke Nukem 3D, but it can actually be useful at times in spite of this, combine it with Duke's quick kick and it can in a pinch be used to dispose of single octobrains just by your rate of attack stunlocking them.
Against pigcops and chaingun commanders, the pistol is a very poor choice, not to mention bosses, so it's not like the pistol is a super weapon.

Taking a Baron Of Hell with the chaingun or the regular shotgun is a fucking drawn out chore, if the pistol was vaguely comparable to those two weapons, this wouldn't change, he's not called a HP-door for nothing.
He'd be a 3 second distraction with a rocket launcher, but that's a higher tier of weapon.

Make you fight him in a tight space where it's hard to avoid his projectiles and where he can easily get in clawing range of you. Or combine him with ranged fighters at a distance, so you have to concentrate on avoiding him, and to avoid incoming fire from the outside.

A novelty radio that I gutted and put a composite screen into. One of these days I’ll finally finish it, it’s attached to a raspberry pi that I intended to put in the under-area after shifting the original speaker deeper into the monitor housing so both the screen and speaker could coexist with a raspberry powering both of them from underneath, and ports on the sides.

Basically making it a “microcomputer.” Sadly I am bad at cutting plastic smoothly and straight. That’s essentially the only thing stopping me.

I dunno, it's weirdly inconsistent. Most floor and ceiling textures aren't getting mandlebrot'd properly. And looking at the new version of Wobbly Shader, it works by literally hardcoding rerouted shader data for every Doom texture. The texture names used internally by GZDoom seem to be different from the names in the iWADS, so I'll have to find out what names are used for the enemy textures. But I don't know how that'll interact with animations.

There's a difference between a "need" and a "want." If you have a particularly useful starting weapon, you WANT to use the other weapons, either because they'll do certain things better than your starting weapon or they're more exciting to use or because you have an ammo surplus, etc. If you have a particularly useless starting weapon, you NEED to use better weapons because you won't be able to fight back without them. Both lead to different feelings and strategies for the player - the first leads to feelings of confidence and capability and makes them more willing to fight off the bat; the second leads to feelings of tension and constraint and makes them more willing to run off the bat.

You may not notice them, but your brain does. (They're also more obvious if you pistol start everything, as you should).

GZDoom is just ZDoom with additional OpenGL powered effects. Some modern WADs will only work with GZDoom, but all WADs that work in ZDoom will work as intended in GZ. Only reason to use ZDoom nowadays is just older hardware that doesn’t work with even QZDoom.

Doesn't make a difference. The starting pistol can be just a passable weapon without being able to easily fight back larger enemies.

Just because you make a pistol that's really good against zombies and imps, and kinda good against pinkies, doesn't mean the pistol will be especially great against barons, mancubi, arch-viles, or cyberdemons, enemies for which it would be worthless.
Your basic shotgun can still do better in both damage per shot and dps.

The starting pistol in Doom isn't actually a very good weapon at all, it does low damage, and it's really slow, and once you have your chaingun, there is zero reason to look at it ever again. It's such a hopelessly weak and unsatisfying weapon. If it shot faster, it could at least do a bit of stunlocking in a pinch, like in Duke 3D.

>> No.4950047

You're still looking at the pistol from the perspective of "if it's in my arsenal it should have SOME niche"

It doesn't. You're not even meant to use it ever again after getting the chaingun, nor do you have any reason to considering the chaingun and pistol share the same ammo pool. The reasoning behind the pistol's role is to get you to prioritize finding other weapons with it first rather than kill as much as possible with your pistol until you run out of ammo (you can technically do that, but as is it's just slow and inefficient). Take it away and you take away the sense of progression when pistol starting a level.

It's not much different from how your starting weapon in Quake 3 is this piddly machinegun nobody ever uses once they pick up any other weapon. The reason again being to get you moving and get you finding other weapons.

To put it differently, there is no reason why the pistol in Doom should be good at killing at all. All the other weapons in Doom cover most of the necessary weapon archetypes anyways. The pistol is just a starting weapon, it doesn't need to be more.

That falls into "they do certain things better than your starting weapon." As you say, the starting pistol could still be "good," just against zombies and imps and pinkies.

But what makes the starting pistol in Doom what it is is precisely that it isn't good. The closest thing to a strength it has is that you don't have to run into a shotgunner's face with your fists to kill him and take his gun. You are supposed to feel "hopelessly weak" (the Ultimate Doom manual in pic related says "pathetic") if you are forced to use your pistol. That is part of the dynamics of the game - you're on your back foot when you start a level, with just enough resources to kill a weakling and take his gun. It's comparable to how Wolf 3D starts: you break out of your cell with a shank, stab an unsuspecting guard to death, rifle through his pockets for his sidearm, and hopefully never need to pull that knife out again.

>once you have your chaingun, there is zero reason to look at it ever again.
You'll have to look at it again if you pistol start every level, which is how every map in Doom was designed.

Like I mention in >>4949286, it exists within the mechanics its surrounded by, and is meant to compel certain kinds of gameplay and feelings. It's subjective whether or not you like those feelings, but it's not for no reason that each game has its own approach to its starting weapon.

I take the same applies with the Quake 2 shotgun? It doesn't really have the long range combat role it had in Doom, and its role in general seems to be just a stepping stone towards the SSG. At least the machine gun still has some uses after getting the chaingun.

>What can be done to fix the handgun problem in games?

It's not that hard, just have them fill some sort of niche that other guns would be unsuitable for. The trouble is that even if the pistol fills a niche, it's usually boring as hell to use compared to other guns that are available. Yeah the Glock in Half-Life filled a niche, popping off the occasional headcrab or barnacle, but it wasn't nearly as much fun as the big boomer bastard shotgun or the ratta-tatta of the MP5. Pistols are just lame to use.

Something I've never seen an FPS really do is treat pistols like the emergency sidearms that they are in real life. Obviously some tacticool games like Counter-Strike do this, but it's still treated like a separate weapon, with a long-ass unholster animation, making it almost useless in any intense scenario.

How about something like an "OH SHIT" panic button where you whip out a pistol really quickly for when you run out of ammo for your main gun? Like a melee button, but not just for up close.

People love to splurge about wow how pretty Bethesda games look but none of the designs are memorable in any way, it just looks like their philosophy is MORE POLYGONS = MORE GOODER. I don't even remember what the fuck the pinky demon or the cacodemon or the cyberdemon look like in the new Doom because they just looked like someone started drawing a beetle on its hind legs or something and NEVER FUCKING STOPPED DRAWING IT for 9 months. There's so much needless, pointless chitin and armor and musculature and veins and shit that it turns the monster into a spaghetti plate of inconsistent detail.

Because in the first place, the pistol is a baseline weapon that is purely meant to give you a ranged attack. It's not good, and it doesn't need to be. There's only so much you could conceivably do with that before it loses it's identity and becomes a viable mid-game weapon, which it shouldn't be.

I can't really speak for the fist, it's definitely a better model for improvement than the pistol, but again, when there's almost certainly a more interesting selection of weapons to choose from, focusing your criticism on the most ancient form of attack known to man is a bit fucking stupid.

>It doesn't have to be that way
Alright then, so lets say that they turn the pistol into a pretty good weapon that can be comfortably used against ~50% of the enemies in the game.

You're going to either start off with a endgame-viable tool, you're going to get a new pistol-equivalent to start with (which defeats the purpose in the first place) or you're going to start off with fist, which is a terrible idea.

Barring weapon upgrades, any gun is going to stay at the same power level from the time you get it to the time the game ends. The idea you have that all of the weapons need to have a neat gimmick or use is lunacy. Sure, you could at least make the case that every weapon should be useful for something, and I agree with that, but again, we're talking about a pistol. If you power it up, what are you going to start off the game with?

I have some thoughts and questions about Sector Type 11, the special damaging floor that brings you down to 11% health and then ends the level, like at the end of E1M8.

Monsters which are placed in this sector, are they not counted for kills in some sourceports?
Because it seems that if you use IDDT, and then use GZDoom's options for the automap to set a certain color for allied monsters (let's say blue), then those allied monsters display that color on the automap, but then, looking at Plutonia's Map 11: Hunted (for the 'wrong' exit), and TNT's Map 25: Quarry (the oddly tagged teleporter pads with imps on them), the monsters turn up with the blue color on that automap.

Found a Doom Vietnam mod from 2014

Decided to change some of the stuff about it I dind't like

-The M16 and the 1911 have new sounds, the M16 I got from an AR video, the 1911 I got from Rising Storm
-The player now starts with an M16 and 100 rounds of ammo instead of just a 1911. This makes some of the harder difficulties playable.
-the M16 rate of fire has been raised closer to it's historical rate (600-700 rpm), this means you'll burn through bullets quicker though, so be careful
-I replaced the fireball with a puff of smoke, they shipped these things with flash hiders.

Might expand on it more, add some new weapons (probably just steal them from other games lol)

I'm not much of a modder but there is a serious shortage of single player Vietnam games and DOOM is a pretty good vessel for them due to it's difficulty and how close to hell Vietnam was.

You can still get a little bit of flash with a rifle with a flash-hider, more still in full-auto fire.

I don't like Doom.
Sure it is colorful, has banging tunes, and a great beastiary, but I can't be fond of it with movements more akin to a vehicle than a person, the starting pistol just being there to make others more useful, the delay in firing (paired with the vehicle movement style it makes combat feel sluggish af), RNG forks when it comes to damage, and I always get lost easily. Not helped where most megaWADs I come across take cues from slaughtermaps at some point, with open maps, weapons and powerups scattered around and enemies just being dumped left and right, feels like I'm playing serious sam or painkiller and I'm not fondof those game for this reason. I'd rather explore an actual place with architecture.

This is why I prefer Quake1 over Doom: sure it's less colorful, the tunes are more ambiant, and the bestiary isn't that big, but the starting gun can still be used even if you got more powerful guns, movements feel more like controling an actual person (and you can jump, adding verticality to the level design), no delay when firing, no RNG damage, and all of the maps I come across don't feel like they borrow from painkiller/serious sam.

Some of the areas feel like they could be scaled down if you're adamant on keeping the amount of monsters where it is. There are lots of large rooms with so much dead space because there are barely any guys to shoot at. The courtyard where you first encounter the Cacodemon is a good example of this, it's just a basic rectangle with nothing going on aside from a couple of pickups. That said, the grid maze was interesting for how it transformed each time you went through it but the monsters fought in it was annoying for how limited your arsenal is.
Some of the secrets were wallhump-tier as well, hidden away with no real indication of there being something there. The blue armor and backpack are specific examples that I missed, I also missed the Rocket Launcher on my first try but that was just carelessness on my end and I never really felt it necessary with all of the ammo it gives you.

As for secrets, the backpack is a bit cheap (you're supposed to notice via map that that wall is shorter than the others, but it's shorter by like 16 units and you're probably not looking at the map at that point), the blue armor is inspired by E3M3(?) the map with the hand, where you have an arrow pointing to a secret. Suffers from the same issue, I suppose.
I'm going to rework the maze so hopefully it'll be more fun and less awful.

>> No.4951459

A kick is definitely on the books.
I was also thinking a sort of two foot longjump that also can insta-kill weaker enemies like zombiemen and maybe shotgunners and slightly pinkies, hellknights, barons, mancubi due to their fat absorbing the impact to badly damage them imps and chaingunners

Kind of like of you do the powerslide and jump at the same time in High Noon Drifter. But for now, a normal, but powerful kick would be done.

But again, gotta learn how to do all this stuff and learn how to use the modding tools since I've never done any Doom modding before.

>> No.4951461

I did notice the arrow on the automap, but didn't pay it as much find. I'll rack that up as my bad but you're in what is essentially a timed area anyway and don't really have the luxury of searching for hidden doors in an area like that.

Changed the M16A1 sprite completely.

Going to do some more work on this tonight.

Trying to decide if I should add more weapons or make a new map. I've never made a map before but I think I have a pretty good idea of how to add weapons into the game. Then again which ones?

I think the first step is to give the VC AKs. I REALLY also want the MAT49 in the game too, but I can't find a sprite, there are so few games that use them that making one might be kind of difficult.

i said that it may be news material or not, but i saw the stuff, and it supports everything, though its still an alpha, also they did old tests.

for now the sprite limit seems to be 400% sized and the sprite sheet is the same as Doom and other FPS games but with down, up, and angled turns.

also with the DX9stuff now it supports reshade without using DgVoodoo2, though the screenshots are still 4:3 because he didn't worked on scale and its still alpha

Here you go.

If you're gonna have the Slough hand, it needs the booger at the end.

I stood still for a while at the hurtfloor maze start when there were no more radsuits because I was just staring at the map trying to figure out where to go. Some of those blind drops are scarier than others and because the purpose of the mapset seems to be replicating Sandy Petersen maps, I was sincerely concerned about falling into a deathpit.

That E3M9 hallway section was clever, but it goes on for a while, at least for me because I was nervous about checking each hallway for goodies or enemies.

Descent is the alpha and the omega. Everything else are just, well, descendants. I'm actually playing through Descent 1 for the first time right now as my first 6DoF. Rookie is the best choice for first timers - it starts out very gently, but still gets pretty fucked up the longer you go. I guess I'd suggest Trainee if you're deathly scared of not knowing which way is up, but the amount of overlap in design between Descent 1 and Doom is such that if you're comfortable with Doom, you've got a pretty good leg up in comprehending Descent.

>China Lake grenade launcher
Interesting. I see it was mainly issued to SEALs.

I've always wanted to do a level based on the Son-Tay (peak fucking aesthetics google it) raids so that might be a possibility.

For now I'm going to keep this mod focused on mid war era stuff (1967-69) so M16A1s, AKs, M60s, shit that's easy to find assets for. I was doing some reading on the NVA K50 SMG, It was basically a hot-rodded PPSH41 mixed with MAT49 features. I could take the PPS43 sprite from COD and photoshop the MP40 barrel on there and call it a K50, or I could just use the PPSH41 and call it a day since there were plenty of those floating around at the time.

Tonight my goal is to get a working usable AK into the game. I think I can just copy and paste the M16, change the names and variables and sounds and edit the damage and spread and it should be good. I already have AK sprites ready to go.

For now:

-New M16A1 sprite
-Enemy gunfire is now real recordings of AK47 sounds (thanks hickock45)
-switched primary and alt fire. left mouse button now shoots single bursts and right mouse now shoots full auto

I didn't expect to get this far with this. If this becomes something really cool what are the ethics of putting this on ModDB? I did basically use someone elses mod as a base and have been ripping off assets left and right. If I just credit everything that I've taken am I good to upload it to Mod DB? The original mod hasn't been touched since 2014 so I don't think I'm stepping on anyone's toes here.

Welp. I said I would have a working AK in the game by tonight and I do

I was originally going to have it share ammo with the M16 for simplicity's sake, but right now I ran into a bug that I might actually want to keep around as a feature. The AK will not pull from the same ammo as the M16, and the player will not store AK ammo found on bodies, he will only keep the current AK magazine full. This kind of represents the idea of a "battlefield pickup"

soldiers were also discouraged from using AKs since they had a very distinct sound which was burned into the heads of American GIs a "the enemy is near", or maybe that's just an excuse for my laziness. I haven't watched a single tutorial on Decorator, I'm just kind of guessing on how the scripting language works. It reminds me of Basic a little bit.

The script in the original mod (which I've just been copy pasting and altering) doesn't have the weapons replacing any of the old ones, so technically they are all still there. I had this idea of having a level where you eat some bad acid and end up playing an unaltered DOOM level as part of your trip.

instant death pits over tricky slippery platforming (margin of error my ass)
placing a shooting monster you cant take out in one shotgun blast right behind the door/around the corner so they could guarantee a hit on you before you kill them. Bonus (negative) points for that monster to be INVISIBLE that becomes visible only during attack so you cant blast him ahead of time.
Monsters so far away they become 1-2 pixels that shoot at you regardless, even if it is projectiles - it's hard to anticipate them if you can't even see the monster.
several secrets and even conventional paths require you to take damage from the damaging floor/liquid without any way to negate that

When I capture doom gameplay with nvidia shadowplay it comes out dark. not super dark but a bit too dull for my liking. even if I slide the in-game gamma slider to max it still comes out the exact same dark in the capture, like it doesnt detect the gamma at all, it's really weird.

Re: resolution crap


It's coming back, but in a better way. Height/Width has been exported from console to a menu variable. There is also a submenu with predefined resolutions, akin to the axed resolution selection. It's somewhat...limited atm, but resolutions will be added as time passes, I suppose.

The "catch": currently only in a dev build. There's no real catch I can think of. Being able to input your resolution manually is a godsend. To be honest, the only problem with this change by Graf & co. was the piss-poor marketing and rushed release, giving the impression that resolution selecting was axed completely, which is bullshit.

OBS does record video, but for whatever fucking reason it needs a few seconds after Doom is launched to actually start displaying video as well. Like, launch OBS, launch Doom, and start recording after about 10-15 seconds. Then it works.

its fine as long as there is a way of getting past them unharmed, stonestepping or enviro suit
>pinky packs before you get ssg
I would change it to "pinky packs before you get any weapon at all" since chaingun exploits their high pain chance and shotgun works fine against them
>archvile traps
as long as they dont repeat they are fine
>more than one archvile at a time
its fine as long as they arent in ridiculous numbers or hard to hit areas

the only things I would add is overdoing archvile encounters because they become a chore, and unleashing 50+ of the same enemy type at once so no chance at infighting

I'm ok with Plutonia because they picked tracks from Doom and Doom 2 and assigned them to new maps, and it has new skies, and not to talk about a distinct visual style.

I mean more like
>Wow, an 18 or even 32 level megawad
>the screenshots look cool
>it's supposed to be good
>go into first level
>dun dun dun dun dun dun dun dun DUN DUN
>dun dun dun dun dun dun dun dun DUN DUN
>sky is overcast clouds the color of dirt
>exit and look into .wad
>no new music tracks at all
>no new sky textures
>it's just gonna be the stock Doom 2 ones
I'm totally fine with someone making an episode or megawad for Doom 2, and they just grab skies and music from the first Doom, because it's at least SOMETHING.

I'll say though that TNT having it's own music score is why it stands so well vs Plutonia, despite probably being a bit inferior on some ways.
Now, going into D2TWID, I expected the sky to be the same, but the lack of new music bored me, so just as you I assembled a quick collection of random midi tracks from a folder, and it's good to go.
Little bit of Alien Vendetta and Double Impact in there, and some Memento Mori and Eternal Doom.
