Doom 2's maps are a mixed bag, it has some weak maps and most of them are around the middle. There's enough good and decent maps though that it's worth playing still.
Give Doom 2 The Way Id Did a try if you want a somewhat more competent take on Doom 2.

Because they don't own the rights to the Sunstorm expansions, also the port isn't actually that great in itself.

They just don't give a shit, the faux retro thing is just an excuse to put out something that looks like ass and try to capitalize on nostalgia for something that never really existed.

Last time I asked about that game here someone said I should just play Marathon 2 on Xbox 360 (where it apparently runs at 60fps instead of 30fps on the PC) instead. Apparently as a console game it's actually really fun. But yeah I bailed on Marathon 1 around the third level.

>> No.5786975

I don't mind many of these recent indie shooters, but Prodeus is easily the worst of them all. Don't use shitty textures and models if you're also going to mix it with modern graphical effects and lighting; it makes it all look that much more jarring. Same with Doom, dynamic lights look terrible in GZDoom.

>> No.5786979

It pains me to say it: as of now you are better off playing DoomRL

>> No.5786984

That would just make it worse. The low framerate is the least of my problems. Weird mouse acceleration and the fact that I can't look properly up and down annoy me even more. Going for analog stick aiming will not improve this.
Marathon 1 also has some pretty crazy difficuly spikes like the five compilers just spawning in on your ass in the second level or the room that you need to grenade jump out of in the third.

>> No.5786997

It's good for 1 playthrough.
Longstory short: D'Sparil cursed him to walk outerworlds for eternity, (So basically he was like Doomguy/Doomslayer, and all the PWADS are canon) after countless dimensions/slain enemies his Tome of Power starts talking in female voice. Apparently there's fake tomes and real ones. Real ones have Guardians in it, and he got a real one from D'Sparil, then awakened it by feeding it energy.
Guardian of his tome opens a portal back home.
Corvus returns home, but shit's fucked, and everyone has a plague that corrupts their minds and makes them go mad. The Seraph that was supposed to keep things in check performed a ritual of Ascension to Godhood, but he had to use 7 tomes of power for that. Since you took a real one, he used 1 fake one (that he thought was real).
Corvus fights through numerous places, gets infected, tries to find a cure, but finds none, confronts Seraph. Has to complete the ritual with his real tome.
Main badguy gets out of jail free, gets immortality and godhood as a "punishment". Leaves Corvus to deal with the aftermath of all the shit he caused.
Literally worst ending in a videogame I've seen. Even worse than ME3 IMO.

He was named in the manuals IIRC. In old games 98% of the plot and names were contained in the manuals only, never to be seen in the game itself.

Marathon 1 is a generic Doomclone of the time, that just like other Doomclones (sans Heretic) failed to understand what made Doom great - a coherent level design with landmarks and memorable places/encounters.
Marathon 1 has shit level design with clashing textures, samey corridors and rooms, and story that is pretty much completely disconnected from the gameplay and would've had exactly same value if being told in a manual.

>> No.5787003

Marathon 2 improves the level design a bit, but not much. Some color choices for textures are terrible.
Marathon 3 is something approaching Doom 1 in terms of leveldesign quality.
It has some additional "cool" tricks like gravity and non-euclidean space via lineportals, but coupled with shitty leveldesign those work more to the games detriment than otherwise.

>> No.5787004

I guess I just find how most of them are made, marketed and sold to be pretty fucking insulting.

Most of them have a library list of games they're supposed to hearken back to as a selling point, usually without making the slightest bit of effort to lean from the positive aspects of those games.

As for Proteus, they use those terrible textures and models, and then pile on effects to make them look more pixelated and shit, because that's what "retro" looks like, instead of working under similar restrictions to old games to promote creativity.

>> No.5787016

>He was named in the manuals IIRC. In old games 98% of the plot and names were contained in the manuals only, never to be seen in the game itself.
As it so happens, I've got my copy of Heretic and it's manual sat on my desk, no mention of the name Corvus, it's all in a perspective talking about you as the player character.

for me that's where the arch-vile shines the most. He's a fast monster whose attack is properly telegraphed but you never know where he is attacking from.

You could do that, but mind that's likely to piss a lot of people off (not necessarily bad, mind). This was a mapping trope which was done occasionally in the 90s, but then people just stopped doing it.

I think a more fresh take on it would be if it were a couple of shotgunners up on some pillar, and there's a hidden vile in the core of the pillar that keeps rezzing them. Then the only way to get 100% kills is to reach a certain point which will activate a crusher in there and turn the vile into paste.
They're more fragile, and likely to hit each other, also not maintaining constant full-auto fire, but the vile makes sure they stays a threat until you say so.

A good Doom level and Metroidvania map are essentially the same in structure, but Doom level is much more condensed, and keys/switches to open new areas do not give you new abilities.

An interesting take on that would be a Shooter that took the approach literally and substituted key/switch hunting with actual metroid-like abilities (that player has to find anew in each level)

I've thought about this. A good way to do this as a gameplay mod would simply be to make keys give players interesting abilities. Like the red skull gives hurtfloor immunity and the blue key gives a permanent blue armor effect for the rest of the level

Shut the fuck up. You stupid goddamn idiot. That is the most fucking basic form of progression in a video game possible. What is with these people thinking Metroidvania means "you have to do something somewhere to unlock another area". Wikipedia literally says fucking Dark Souls is Metroidvania-inspired. A Metroidvania is an action-adventure game in which you explore a non-linear, interconnected world and gain new abilities which can be used to reach new areas in old places.

So here’s a map I made, I think it's pretty fun and you might like it too. I call it “Lumber Lordosis”, It's map inspired by Blood and back problems. You should play it with a gameplay mod that improves Doom’s jumping controls, such as high noon drifter or z movement.

The map has custom music and textures (from Blood), its made in UDMF so run it in gzdoom or zandronum.

Exhumed hasa this, but the metroid-like ability unlocks are "get this thing, to access place in another level", while I'm talking about the progression within a level itself.

>That is the most fucking basic form of progression in a video game possible
Except it's not. Most games use completely different style of progression.

In shooters:
Pre-doom shooters - level a maze, find an exit, or kill x things to unlock exit
True Oldschool shooters (Doom, Duke, Blood, Quake etc) - level is a place, but parts are locked, unlock them and exit (aka Metroid style progression)
Modern (linear) shooters - level is a sequence of setpieces/scenes
OpenWorld-post-Ubishit-homogenization shooters - no levels, its a fuckhuge open landscape full of fucking nothing with scatered blips of "things to do", but those things are same copypasted shit over and over again.
Pseudo-Oldschool-SmashTV - level is a sequence of arenas you get locked into until you kill all monsters (SS, Painkiller, nuDoom), rarely combined with some other form.

I think something changed with the SteamPipe update, but still.
How HL mods work is that there's a base directory for a mod that is loaded, and all missing files are loaded from the basic "valve" folder, the HL folder.
That's how the HD pack works, it's a mod that just contains new models and animations, and everything else is taken from the stock HL folder.
All the .exe installer does is move a folder into your HL directory and put an uninstall pointer into your registry so that you can uninstall the mod through your control panel, it does nothing special you couldn't do yourself by dragging and dropping or pressing the delete key on your keyboard.

GoldSrc is just a really modified version of the Quake engine, hell, I'm pretty sure you could even load early versions of HL onto Quake. I've never done HL mapping, but it could be a nice learning experience.
Picking a game to map for almost seems harder than mapping itself. This general has already done Doom and Quake, so it seems like the next logical step would be for the next id game, Quake II, but barely anyone likes it, and Quake III is multiplayer only.
Or, you could just sidestep and go back to the Doom engine for Heretic/Hexen, but I don't know if /vr/ projects have already been done for them or not.
Strife's main draw is the story and NPC interaction, but I don't think anyone here has the time or resources to make a fleshed out story or do voice acting.
We could hop over to Build games but I've heard that their editors are about as old as the games themselves.

Except Metroidvanias are a large, interconnected series of one map or non-linear series of maps, not a linear progression of individual maps. The key is how the map or maps are INTERCONNECTED and areas previously explored open up further as your skills and arsenal expand. The key here is repetitive, iterative map exploration, in Metroivanias you are always EXPLORING.

Valve supported it longer, and also bought the rights to a few mods and had them published properly, like Counter-Strike, Team Fortress Classic (which was a Quake mod to start with) and Day Of Defeat.
These were good games which held people's attention for a long while, and there was a lot of other good mods too, like The Specialists and Sven-Coop. It was kind of an amazing age of modding and a lot of really cool stuff was made on GoldSource.

It was also a more advanced engine, letting people do more, and things like skeletal animation made a lot of things MUCH easier as compared to the headaches of vertex animation.

Guys, I just realized something the other day after rewatching the Doom Eternal speedrun from Quakecon.

The guy on the left at the beginning states some rules for the run. He mentions some basic stuff, get all kills, get certain secrets, but he also mentions specifically, "no gauss jumps, no rocket jumps."


I think rocket jumping was accidentally confirmed for Eternal.

Do you think wads like SUNDER are a monument to the hubris of man and a big ol' masturbatory meme, or are you bad enough dudes to actually finish them on Ultra-Violence?

At least for me, speaking as a scrub who can't into slaughter and is having trouble with the second half of Ancient Aliens UV, it feels like they're mapsets made for an elite club of top-tier doomers and no one else. But maybe I'm overestimating the skill required to beat them?

I did not compare them directly, so that argument is not really valid. You argue about that it's not "literally same", and I agree - I never said that they are exactly same.
However the process of exploration of the opened areas, then returning to the old areas because what you did in the new one unlocked something in the old one is similar enough to draw a comparison on that basis.
The general structure is similar. The gameplay loop goes according to a significantly similar algorithm.
And if you say "all games do that", think again and try to remember any modern FPS that follows similar structure.

Yes, first version is from 2001, was revamped into the 2002 version because of speedrunning.
Alien Vendetta Black Label from 2016 is kind of a patch only, you still need the alien vendetta 2002, just load the black label one after it. Black Label just replaces MAP01 and MAP02 up to more modern standards.
The 2002 versions changed a lot, from the doomwiki:
>The second release, made in 2002 when it was selected for usage on Compet-n, made various changes to almost all of the levels; the biggest change is the replacement of MAP25: Valley of Echoes with another map, MAP24: Clandestine Complex, as well as the relocation of the former MAP24: Demonic Hordes to MAP25.

Yes. Literally only people desperate to stay relevant still bring it up. Everyone else moved on.

If a Doom level has jumping or freelook disabled, and you can't toggle it off in-game, then it's been defined in the level's MAPINFO file, in which case you can just open the .wad in Slade3 and go and go erase those lines.

He definitely had input in its design at any rate.

I stop one step before your first option.

>Smooth Weapons
>Smooth Doom

I feel like Smooth Doom's smoother weapon animations screw up the telegraphed attacks for enemies, so I prefer only smoothing Doomguy's weapons and nothing more.

There are some people who argue even Smooth Weapons is far too much of a departure from Vanilla because you can use certain frames from the Rocket Launcher to know exactly when to stop firing it, but I'm not good enough to notice that sort of thing.

>- The HUD is not intrusive at all, and was helpful when I needed to glance at it quickly for info, which is what a HUD is supposed to do. I would love it if people would shut up about how much they don’t like it when they haven’t played it yet. Plus the devs said it’s already been iterated on since this demo was made in April, and it’ll be customizable for turning features on/off and adjusting brightness/opacity...

Besides that, they can use the bans/censorship to victimize themselves and make it a case of their free speech being under attack.
Specially if they make a case about some sort of "untold truth" where they claim to have forbidden knowledge and are censored because they can't be proven wrong about their otherwise fucked up beliefs and ideas.
Not that debating them would change their minds (and it's no one's obligation) but you can see that they're just sheltered paranoid lunatics that nobody knows how to actually handle.
Anyone who thinks shutting down 8something or 4chan or related fixes anything are either A: lazy idiots who treat symptoms as causes or B: people who know it won't do anything and might actually want these people to stay a little longer.
Because the person who writes about reactionaries getting mad at the new Star Wars for hateclicks can't live without their "enemies" that they claim are the devil.
It also happens that shit like this can lead to other stuff being shut down or banned because censorship is just a black hole that continues to consume anything in its path.
>Give them an inch, they'll go for an extra mile instead
Most people also only support censorship for personal reasons until it bites them back and it's too late for them to complain.

visibility was very much an issue. they color coded the weapon wheel to display empty weapons but unfortunately forgot a PC player wont be using it ever so you're just switching back and forth between them, forced to peek at the tiny ass ammo tally because in their wise knowledge they ditched the intuitive ammo bar. if you're going to be doing what you do then at least bother to make the numbers chunky and large in size.

plus look at just how fuckin wide the boxes are. thats poor space management and their arrangement makes them all blend together, the flame belch has no reason being next to the chainsaw when it's a shoulder cannon attack. the mod icon is tiny and separate from the ammo counter.

about as correct as you were thinking this shit looked fine and ready to go out the door. the flame belch and the chainsaw are vital to player resources, so it would be sensible choices that they could be either stacked in a vertical fashion or made a different color. but no man, why do that at all. just make them and the weapon ammo tally the exact same size without any attempt at differentiation. just plop them right on there. we need to make it in time for bethesdacon.

And you're calling me blind? The relevant information for those two is much smaller than the ammo number.

it would at least attest to the items' importance at a glance. its about both size and arrangement.

Which are not relevant information. A green bar on the second row from the bottom is your flamethrower, and the orange boxes are your chainsaw, both of which are much smaller than your ammo counter.
You're complaining about them being too small, but praising the Quakecon 2018 HUD for having its non-ammo information made even smaller and more obscure. Which is it?
Because the grenade indicator in 2016 was tiny and a color that blended in with almost every weapon you could hold. The green bar is easier to make sense of at a glance.

And it was practically invisible any time in between throwing one and having the next one ready. If you had the upgrade that let you throw 2 grenades, then it didn't turn blue unless you had both ready.

oh im really not screaming at a still image so much as i am exasperated at someones perpetual state of bewilderment in the face of someone explaining how UI design works. eternal's HUD being "functional" is about a sorry an excuse you can find for poor stylization and the game has none on the interface front, but yeah just chalk it up to the first insult you can take out of the ballot. das it mane

Not a fan of that at all, but more power to the people. Weapons of Saturn's HUD has stood by my side since as early as the mod launched. It's clean, sleek, easy to read, and it's inline with the old HUD design, even keeps around the nice, chunky red numbers.

Eternal's HUD doesn't look *too* bad imo, all things considered. Could be a grey dull blob sitting at the sides of the screen like the 2015 E3 Doom 4 demo, but they really need to kick the green one or two notches down. I get it's functional, but there needs to be a compromise between it and style, and Eternal has one of the two... to a certain extent. I can agree the items on the lower right portion of the HUD could pop out more. Something like >>5790160 or even >>5790295 do a much better job at what Eternal shoots to do in a more instantly recognizable, easy to read fashion.

I never had issues telling it apart from the rest of the environment. I mean, I knew that if I keep my gun out then the background stops being translucent, so... yeah. You could also just assume that the meter being filled again means you have one all ready to go.

GzDoom also has something called Brightmaps, which will render select parts of sprites and textures bright in darkness, so you get eyes glowing on some monsters in the dark, and some switches glowing in the dark too, etc.
