Currently playing through Duke, I played Episode 1 as a very young kid, it was actually one of the very first video games I ever played, I was too young to ever make it past Death Row, though.

I'm loving it. It's nostalgic, but I also am having a great time in these levels. Episode 2 was a bit annoying though, the enemies were a fucking pain to deal with. Excited to move on with Episode 3 tonight.

Blood is feasible even on Extra Crispy when you get the gist of it, but people are either stuck on their "play it like DOOM" mentality or i don't know, they just do mundane errors i guess.

On the two highest difficulties of Blood the cultists are difficult in way that is really out of touch with the rest of game. Their reaction time is always fasters than yours and they are constantly placed around corners. That being said there are advanced strategies for dealing with them. Crouching to throw off their aim is the most obvious but there are other ways you can fight them. Hit and run tactics with fire based weapons as well as stunlocking them is essential to surviving engagements with them. Explosive weapons and the Tommy gun are really good for pre firing around corners, which is definitely must when dealing with these fuckers. Cultists have instant reaction the first time you "wake them up" but after that their reaction time is slower. This means that you generally have to bait them out of their initial placement and then ambush them in an area where you have an advantage over them. Cultists can be very punishing at times but if you can change your playstyle to deal with them they shouldn't be too much of a pain in the ass.

Mostly excellent. Twin Dragon, my favorite of the two, starts off well with 3 good levels only to completely shit the bed for the next 4 levels, then resumes with good levels til the end. Good secret level.

Wanton also starts strong with levels 1 and 2 but then dips and raises with each subsequent level in my opinion. For example it dips with 3 but bumps up again with 4, dips with 5 bumps with 6, dips with 7, etc. I don't like either of the secret levels. Also the yakuza(?) guys that replace the ninjas/guardians are annoying.

>> No.5329573

I think their both really expansion packs. Wanton destruction is easily my favorite of the two. Almost every level in Wanton Destruction is interesting and memorable even if the execution wasn't always perfect. The airplane level is definitely one of the most memorable levels in all of shadow wareior, despite having annoying enemy placements. My only issue with the expansion is that it gets too easy towards the end. Twin dragon is closer to the original game in terms of quality. It's a lot more hit or miss than Wanton destruction, some of the levels just feeling lackluster compared to WD. Also this expansion brings back the fucking mines in full force.

Do you have Redux?

It seems that Redux is doing some weird stuff with its DOS install of the game so running custom .grp is harder

But in order to play it in Redux all you have to do is drop the .grp file in shadow warrior classic\gameroot and set steam launch launch options to "-gLastWar.grp"

that's how I played it a few years ago although iirc musics didn't work, so if that's the case perhaps your best bet is to make your own custom dosbox install of the game; only then to run sw.exre -gLastWar.grp

all of the references in Duke were contemporary and half of them kids these days would have no clue about outside of the obvious Doom/StarWars/Indiana Jones stuff.
What's the % of people who understood the poster in Death Row even back then? At least this reference isn't required to progress through the map. What about the og simpsons trial and car chase, think everyone is getting it when playing it these days? Or hell, even back then outside of the US?

>memes that people haven't thought about in 3 years.

maybe that's why the dog is dead

>but at least they referenced real works of art

so the Mona Lisa is not a real work of art? also I'm not so sure DN3D referencing stuff like "mistaking a candy bar for a turd", the simpsons or beavis and butthead is any more "refined".

so in short, I think you're exagerating if you wanna judge the entire game based on this one reference. Perhaps the dead corpse in that same level would satisfy you more, too.

I think I actually prefer Blood with the damage bug intact. You get more monsters, meaning tighter ammo balance, especially when forkstarting; they attack more aggressively and they have higher health counts, but they deal less damage, which is especially nice for those hitscan fucks around each and every corner. Same damage gets spread across more enemies that are dishing it.

I wonder, actually. Blood was obviously playtested under forkstarting on extra crispy conditions. Was the bug always there? Which is the intended extra crispy experience, for which the levels were balanced for: with the bug on, or with the bug off?

As I have found out recently, at least, in my case, without music it loses half of its charm at the very least.

Some maps stand out and have great stuff in them

in WD:
Great layout, great us of round shapes and arhictecture; and fantastic "secret places" design. Pure Travis mentality with the secret places, as in "this unreachable place you see? Well you gotta figure out how to get there because it's a secret" except cramped up to 11.

Wieder shows his mastery of SW effects and Build engine; combining the two to create the most 3D, most realistic and most awesome plane map ever made in Build. That was in 1997 and accordingly to history this map is part of how he got hired to work on DNF, 'nuff said.
Just too bad gameplay is so unfair

As for TD, a lot of maps have some really cool layouts: Emergency Room, Toxic Waste, Emergency Room...
LOVE the rooftop fights in City of Despair
The bank in Crazy Train looks so GORGEOUS I'd kiss its ass if it had one
In Fishing Village, I love travelling using the boat and gunning as many enemies as I can with it
Although I think highlight of the EP is The Garden: layout, architecture, texturing, shading, everything is so rock solid in this map it's impressive

But overall, TD lacks even more polish than WD; and is a lot less imaginative with what one could do with SW effects and Build. The almost (if not complete) total absence of Sector over Sector in the entire episode says it all.

Does the bug plague all the existing official versions of the game? 1.0 shareware? Plasma Pak? There is more then half a year between those two.

Try William Gee - WGCity. Hint: try to access as much optional stuff, as you at all can, without pushing any keycards anywhere.

>A look at speed runs will show you how less glitchy Doom is in comparison.

Duke3D speedruns use Megaton edition.

Megaton Edition does not equal "Build", it doesn't even equal "Duke Nukem 3D".

Megaton is a glitchy mess; not only they introduced new glitches which aren't in the original game, but all the existing glitches are infinitely easier to pull off. Something which had a 10% chance of success originally is more like 50-60% in Megaton.
There is a reason speedrunners use that version.

Finally, half of the glitches and exploits in Megaton speedruns, if not more, are Duke3D glitches, not "Build" glitches.

I'd say that is true that Build has more glitches; but there is a reason for that, the different design mentality.

ID games like Doom and Quake are all about "let's do the bare minimum to make this work", for instance very little effects the mappers can use, Quake doesn't even have a crouch or "use key, etc, etc, etc

The least stuff you have in your game, the least stuff are likely to cause issues, and the least stuff you have to focus us to make as solid as possible.
I can do the same analogy with detailing in maps. Maps which have less detailing are easier to look solid, when you have 20 walls in a room vs 100 it's easier to make sure all the textures are the perfect size, alignment, and shading.

The mentality in Build games were always "Hey I just thought about this cool shit, let's add it into the game!" vs Doom/Quake "fuck your idea, we don't need to make this complicated stuff"

>> No.5333346

My point is, let's imagine a parrallel universe where in Doom/Quake:

- The player could crouch, swin, fly, had access to items that change movement behaviour, but also interact with objects and the environment in many ways
- the engine allowed a lot more control on environment, a lot more control on each single surface, a lot more control on moving environment, on the type of movement for those environment, and even the speed; and also non euclydian geometry
- enemies could do a LOT more things

your comparison would STILL not be fair because you'd need to add a half-assed commercial sourceport that adds new glitches and render the existing ones more likely; and even then your comparison would only still be fair if you compared game VS game, not "engine VS engine"

Let's also not forget that even with the "keep it simple" mentality Doom and Quake still had glitches.

Apologies for piggy-backing on the question, but I remember some 20 years ago, after Duke3D was already a pretty well-established game, being extremely impressed by some single and multiplayer custom maps.

One in particular, I think it was a multiplayer map with monsters as an addition, but younger me was impressed by how much work had gone into capturing a convincing scale of doorways, windows, building architecture, the width of streets, even stairs into the metro, etc. There were even empty offices with detailed furniture that served no other purpose aside from being there (and possible ambush points).

I'd probably be less impressed now if I saw it, but it seemed head and shoulders above the typical urban multiplayer map. Anyone have any maps they'd recommend just for "realistic" city design?

I'm glad you're giving the game another chance. We are doing our best to keep the framerate in great levels. No cutting is being done at all.

Heskel's house of horrors is just a portion of a map. And zones are comprised of several maps. Definitely not the size of a zone.

HHH has been in the hands of 3 mappers but due to special reasons. Most maps are made by single authors by everyone helps by giving feedback, lending common pieces like prefab seats, etc... there is a level design lead that makes sure everything makes sense though.

Probably around 15 people.

Yes, that's the reason why I wouldn't want Ion Maiden to bail out on the more expensive scenes because of the same reason. If they can't keep the optimizations code-based, they should at least mod Build to have a third tag for LOD, although this wouldn't help much with sector reduction of cutting/repurposing areas altogether. Unless they can have multiple versions of maps with multiple LODs.

>> No.5336864

LOD wasn't really a thing in fps back then and the drawing in BUILD was pretty much as efficient as it gets. The machines targeted were simply many magnitudes slower.

Derelict wasn't as good as I was hoping it'd be, I had heard it was a one of the biggest maps so I was pretty excited, but it had none of the atmosphere that "Dark Side" had, so it just kind of felt like I was running around killing copious amounts of assault troopers.

IM is a great game and I hope many more games like it are made in the future but something feels off about it. It's missing something. It doesn't feel unique in the way Duke, SW, Blood and PS did.
Don't get me wrong, I love IM, I bought it on the same day it launched on steam, I've played through the early acess levels dozens of times and I'm really excited to play the full thing, but it seems to me that the game still has a lot of untapped potential. I think the main character needs more flavour ( and better voice acting ), the weapons feel generic and a little bit redundant ( the lover boy is perfect, though ), and the enemies so far are varied but kinda bland. They could have gone crazy with the transhumanist cult idea and designed some really unique enemies, but the only interesting designs they managed to come up with were the human drones and the headcrabs.

I am trying to say, that there is a difference between a person who makes his own independent releases on his own volition, a person who only ever participates in others' projects, and a person who has only ever released two maps of his own, moreover, only one of which was released independently.

Creating Powerslave-caliber maps involves having something to express (I am aware I am treading on a fairly thin ice here). Ion Maiden, so far, however, is more or less Build porn.

I think you're overthinking things here, while at the same time only looking through the scope of a few small points while missing other very important points.
Someone who released a hundred maps in a community may not be better suited to make a commercial game than someone who released a single one. There are many other factors in play.

Finally, IM doen't feel more like "Build porn" to me than the original Build games.
Stock Build games, the ones that were actually good successful, as in I'm excluding Witchaven from this argument, were already all about trying to come up with the crazy effects and exploiting the limitation of the engine. For instance all the methods they came up with to make levels that feel true 3D in a 2D engine.

I've been meaning to play that. It's impressive in itself that they made an episode for a game with no publicly released mapping tools. Also IIRC they found that the engine supports slopes & translucency, but the devs never used them for some reason.

They - or him (meaning Blum specifically)? If it's just Blum, then, I think, "ALL about trying to come up with the crazy effects and exploiting the limitation of the engine" is a hefty oversimplification.

Best weapons IMO. Not a single bad one, even if you count the alt fires. They all feel great to use and have some serious oomph to them.
The weakest one might be the shuriken, and even then it's pretty good to get rid of low level ninja.

>> No.5342985

Hard disagree there. It has the worst weapons if anything, maybe it's a Redux thing, but I seriously feel the complete opposite, there's no "oomph" to any of them.

The Riot Gun is a prime example of that, it should feel so much better to handle, but it is by far the least satisfying shotgun out of the 3.

HARD disagree? I genuinely don't get how you could think that.
First of all, like I said every weapon Lo-Wang has is useful through the whole playthrough, as opposed to Duke (Tripmines, Expander) and Blood (Dynamite alts). The melee is high risk/high damage, the uzi's great against small groups in enclosed spaces, the heart's pretty useful when low on health...
Every explosive weapon in that game does tremendous damage, and sounds and feels like it could rip the nuts off a godzilla. Shit, it was so good they even made the railgun into an explosive weapon, just so you'd have more occasions to blow shit up.
As for the riot gun, I often see people complain about it and I definitely don't understand why. It's criminally underrated. It's powerful, there's plenty of ammo for it, and the alt fire kills most enemies in one shot if you get them point blank. It even sounds like a flurry of explosions every time you shoot. BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM! I agree that Blood's sawed off is a strong contender, but it's still miles above Duke's comparatively vanilla shotty.

>> No.5343010

Duke just feels like it has the best "progression" throughout the levels, also as you say good use of verticaility. But aside from that, they just have the best flow.
I don't know. Maybe it's Redux doing it? To me Shadow Warrior feels nowhere near as visceral to play as Duke and Blood does.

Shadow warrior is surprisingly enjoyable now that I'm revisiting it, it's like a feast of explosions, grenade launcher probably being my favorite because of how versatile it is, it seems to always damage something when firing blindly unlike in Quake where a miss is all too common (although you can always just git gud)
The level design is a bit more confusing compared to Blood/duke though, the levels seems a lot more interconnected, having a lot more passages that lead you back to the central area, you can usually pass by 3 color locked door before finding your first key, making it easy to forget where the right door was located, unlike in Blood where the progression felt more linear (finding the skull key usually means that the corresponding door is soon up ahead or that you just recently passed it)

Episode 3 felt like a rushed afterthought product with most levels were just dressed up multiplayer maps. The only ones with some actual effort are Flood Zone, LA Rumble, Hotel Hell and Freeway. The scrapped Sewer map looks better than all of them though.

This episode barely has new textures, has no new enemies with the exception of the poorly written Cyclops and the lame shark, no new weapons, no other type of novelty, no large "epic" levels, no real progress or adventure, just collection of short, interconnected arenas written for multiplayer.

If you put your nostalgia glasses off, you realise this was a very lazy stuff overall. On a positive side, Flood Zone and LA Rumble are very fun, 3D looking maps, and they look good together.

Agree, this map is fantastic, I've only played episode 3 once but it was one of my favorites one the first go. I did not have a great time with Flood Zone that first go, but maybe I'll like it more upon replaying the game.

For as divisive as Episode 2 is, it did bring all new shit, it felt like an ambitious follow-up to the first episode. I enjoyed it the least while playing through the game, despite the fact that "Dark Side" is probably my favorite level in the game. It'll be interesting to replay, there are a couple of really good levels in there, not just "Dark Side" but I would agree that Duke feels best when it is set in real world locations that feel relatable in a sense, but even that can be haphazardly done like in plenty of the Episode 3 levels.
