After playing Sigil I realize how good Romero is at the visual language of a level. In so many wads I press a switch and often spend a long time looking around wondering what the fuck it did. For some reason Romero always seems to avoid this tedium by intuitive level layouts and good visual communication.

>> No.5861858

Suburbs is pretty great, and the encounter with a fuckton of imps, cacodemons, revenants, and mancubi is really unlike anything that happened in Doom 1. It gets pretty overshadowed by all the stuff people have done later, but for the time it must have been absolutely insane.

>> No.5861863

Usually continuous-only mapsets only spawn each weapon once or twice in the entire thing, and often balance ammo with the expectation that you've brought in supplies from previous maps. Which can lead to later maps providing most of your ammo/weapons from hitscanner corpses, which might not be adequate enough through pistol-starting.

These types of mapsets are very rare, though. Most continuous friendly mapsets are also pistol-start balanced, as its generally easier to playtest a map independently from the rest of the maps of the mapset. Most cases of continuous balance is usually just things to prevent the pistol-start balance of maps from making things too easy, like depriving earlier maps from having a Backpack so that you aren't taking too much ammo to the next level, or a death exit to make you lose gear that might trivialise the gameplay of a later map.

>> No.5861865

it's not really complicated
you're either near what the switch triggers when you hit it, or it triggered something you've already seen and you get led directly to it

somebody mentioned that it was the steam version that changed the numbers, so i think i'm going to get ahold of the original CD and compare those files real quick, other than that i think the main things that need to be changed are:

-lower soldier damage
-increase smg damage
-possibly lower alien grunt health

>> No.5862712

Sigil is solid. Worth downloading. Not as great as the original 3 Episodes, but still fun. Plus it's obviously cool as shit that it even exists.

Ion Fury is recommended if you're a fan of the Build Trinity. The first third of the game has STRONG level design that goes downhill later on with a lot of tunnels and shit. The devs didn't understand their own strengths as level designers. The wide open city levels are AMAZING and there's not nearly enough of those kinds of levels in the middle and later parts of the game. Weapons are also underwhelming, especially in comparison to the Build Trinity (which, to be fair, have some of the best weapon arsenals of any games ever). The most surprising thing is how faithful it is to the 90s FPS experience. Aside from it doing things that would have been impossible in the real Build Engine, it plays EXACTLY like a game from 20 years ago. It's so faithful to the gameplay and design of 90s FPSes that it's genuinely astonishing. Every other attempt at a modern "retro FPS" has always felt a little "off" in some way or another in comparison to the games it was imitating, even if the game was still great. This game doesn't miss by even a degree.

>> No.5862713

2.5 D is when either grapically or gameplay wise 3D dimension is completely omitted.
Sprite RTS emulated elevation, that is 2.5 D.
Some platformers and fighting games limit the gameplane to a single plane making gameplay 2D while maintaining 3D visuals. That is 2.5D.

Doom 1/2 worlds are 3D, as player, projectiles and monsters can move in all 3 dimensions.
and gameplay is fully 3D with all 3 axis involved. 3d axis is only omitted in some calculations for performance purposes, but is present in many.
Infinitely tall monsters/hitboxes are often cited as main reason Doom is not fully 3D, but that was done purely for performance - Heretic and Hexen on the same engine get rid of that.

Carmack himself when asked said that the proper definition is "limited 3D".

There's that one yt video by some famous guys that tries to prove Doom 2D so hard they get pretty much every single argument factually and verifiably wrong.

Guten Tag.

A lot of weapon statistics apart from damage are defined within the dlls, which means you need to actively mod the source code to change those, which is probably beyond what you're intending to do.
Valve fixed this with HL2 where all the weapon statistics are defined in special files, which lets you change them easily, they wanted to implement a similar system for HL but ran out of time.

Heres comments and advice on weapons:
The crowbar could use a slight damage uptick to make rushing in and potentially taking loads of damage worth it, in the game it's only ever good for autistically saving ammo by harassing zombies and headcrabs, or just smashing the environment to progress.
The pistol is good as is, headshots make quick work of anything and it's supposed to be a somewhat low tier weapon anyway.
The revolver is good as is, it's a very powerful weapon and kills soldiers with one headshot.
As for the SMG, grunts seem pretty bulletspongy because of the SMG being inaccurate and dealing a good chunk less damage than the peestol, upping that will make the MP5 feel stronger but might make the pistol obsolete, you can't change the accuracy outside of code, so beware.
The shotgun feels weak because it has huge hollywood spread, upping the buckshot damage only changes one pellet, and the pellet amounts and spread are once again hardcoded, you might make point-blank shots too strong if you up it too far.
The crossbow is good as is, very powerful.
All energy and explosive weapons have good damage values so leave them as is, the grenade is the only exception, most people ignore them but I make use of them very intensly.
You can't adjust explosion range outside the code, but they're scaled according to damage.

I'm not sure what you can change for enemies except making human grunts a bit weaker, alien grunts are supposed to be chunky, but controllers are stupidly spongy and I hate fighting them, take them down a notch.

Not this guy but I think besides a damage increase, being able to chuck your crowbar like in Sven Co-op would be nice.
Then take it a step further and have the crowbar respawn in your inventory after a set amount of time in the likely chance you throw the fucking thing into an awkward spot or off a cliff.

Try copying skill.cfg to the appropriate GOTY directory. Do some changes and see if that works.

This is still going to take code modding, HL doesn't use scripting like GZdoom with ZScript or Decorate, and the anon planning to do his change has said he just wanted to twiddle with the numbers to make the game play better.

What wads are generally considered to have the tightest level design ever? The wads that always seem to appear on "best ever" list are usually things like alien vendetta or scythe that seem kind of outdated (and hit or miss), or stuff like sunlust and sunder that is based on heavy slaughter gameplay. I have tried out ancient aliens, and while its certainly pretty I find the level layouts themselves just ok

You might be able to list or dump those values via console.

Beyond damage and health there's not much, and a lot more goes into balance than those two factors.
This is not possible AFAIK but you have a right idea.
cfg files just provide values to console variables, and all the skill damage/health values are console variables in HL for quicker adjusting/balancing, the problem is that they're unregistered console variables, meaning you can't read or change them from the console.

I took your cfg and booted up Surface Tension to try it out.
I think you might have gone too far in a few places.
HECU die in one shotgun blast from mid range away, I was lucky with the spread once and managed to kill the turret and grunt outside the cliffside pipe with one shotgun blast each, from long distance, that's silly.
The SMG can kill hgrunts in a short burst, and the inaccuracy is the only balance factor, if you stand next to them you can mow them like grass.
I said that alien grunts are supposed to be chunky, but you made them die from 20 rounds of the SMG as well as ONE SINGLE SHOTGUN BLAST.
That's just fucking silly, you sneeze and the prime chads of Xen drop dead.
Remember, if you increase damage and lower enemy health, you basically buff the player's killing power twice over, that's a pitfall that a lot of people fall into with "rebalance" configs.

I'm probably not gonna try your next config if you make one, but some advice:
Guns are somewhat tiered, that's why they vary in power so strongly, and why you don't get a lot of pistol ammo in later chapters, they fill a role.
You shouldn't feel like the Doomguy running around and cutting down soldiers, Doom hitscanners are pathetic cannon-fodder, HL ones are the main enemy for the largest part of the game.
Alien grunts are supposed to be chunky and a threat, if you see one you should unpack the big guns or get some distance, they shouldn't die if you sneeze at them.
I didn't kill any controllers but you should probably make their health as high as vanilla grunts, that makes them weaker but still formidable.

Both of these (You)s went to me by the way, Half-Life is to me what Doom is to the rest of the thread here.
One last tip is that you should probably get the feeling right with grunts and shotguns, have grunts be about as resilient as chaingunners, high enough to survive a single shotgun blast, but a double one should kill them even if they're bodyshots or if some pellets miss, like make 9 or 10 pellets kill them, so 6 don't but 2x6 do.

First, they take quite a while to turn. Doing a u-turn near a wall can make them ram into it. Or you can pull off a meme an make it run circles around you, never getting closer to hitting you.
Second, they're shit at changing altitude, unless launched from a height, so you can lead them into small changes of elevation. Which is mostly useful for wide open slaughtermaps.

I think Doom 2 is the best FPS ever made in terms of simply having fun while playing, but I still have some issues with it, and the biggest one is that you're faster than everything else, so the mappers are forced to close you in with monsters or you'll just run away and shoot everything from a safe distance. That's why I liked Eviternity's Astral Cacodemons and I'd love something like Quake's Fiends in Doom, hell, even Spawns wouldn't be so bad. Is there any Doom WAD that adds monsters that aren't slow as shit compared to the player?

>> No.5864830

The turn is somewhat slow, if you see a skelly about to fire, try to get behind something, then the rocket may strike that instead (ideally, make him hit another monster).
Cover is more useful than you'd think in Doom, don't be afraid to use it every now and then.
Eventually you'll get used to the speed and turning of his rockets, you get a feel for them, and you'll find that you can even start circling the rocket, even goad it into a wall or other enemy with enough space to move.

Also, if you close the distance, he will stop trying to shoot because he wants to try punching you, and if you can get that close while staying out of his knuckle radius, you can be relatively safe.

Thanks for the tips. So it seems like generally the best strategy is to steer the rockets into a wall, since the rockets are slow to turn. Sort of similar to how you need cover to avoid the arch vile flames.

It's a way to do a wide area of effect weapon without occupying yourself or your processor with uneccessary things outside of your POV.
The original concept was that it would fire out a large stream of plasmaballs, which was too resource intensive at the time, and wasn't nearly as useful.

>I think Doom 2 is the best FPS ever made in terms of simply having fun while playing, but I still have some issues with it, and the biggest one is that you're faster than everything else

OK but... that's part of the POINT of Doom 2 gameplay. You are far faster than any enemy so fights force you to be both wolf and sheepdog, picking away at enemies while managing the position of the horde to make sure you never get backed into a corner you can't get out of. It makes you consider wider strategy, and not simply moment to moment tactics. Doom 2016 abandoned this for a style of gameplay where the enemies are fewer but are faster and more agile, to give you the same "about to be cornered" sensation from Doom 2 without the sheer numbers.

doom 2 wads tend to make combat situations feel too intense in my opinion. i mean, i know challenge/intensity is often a goal. but any situation where they throw in an arch vile its always an "oh shit" kind of feeling. doom 1 wads are more pleasent imo

Samey? I mean yeah, you could describe them as "tanky imps" but the Cacodemon floats, and the baron of hell is a sweet elite monster. the cyberdemon meanwhile is an intense boss monster and the spider mastermind is a hitscan boss. I dont think its that samey, theres enough variety to make any map feel fresh. especially if you put in a lot of monsters to cause some infighting. i think doom 1's bestiary has a pleasing simplicity. zombieman and shotgun guys are hitscan enemies where you need cover, imps throw projecticles, demons are melee monsters, and cacodemons and barons are projectile enemies but with tough hitpoints.

The BFG originally fired out 40 bouncy balls in a spread in front of you. This looked stupid so Carmack hacked the code to make the 40 bouncy balls into 40 invisible tracers, and he made them fire out of the player when the balls hits something.

I still hate the pinky design with a passion and it pains me that they stood with it for Eternal, and they can't swap it out because the design is tied to the mechanics.

>> No.5866950

Doom 2016 doesn't play like a game made in the 90s, but it does resemble Doom on a conceptual gameplay level. I don't know about the first Shadow Warrior reboot, but the second simply doesn't resemble the original on a conceptual level at all. The game is 99% sword usage and hand magic instead of guns.

I like the first one a lot, the swordplay is really fun and viable for most of the game if you play right.
The second one was fucking abysmal, 0/10 for level design, 0/10 for enemy design, 0/10 for story and characters, 0/10 for humor.

I always liked the razorjack. The rippers secondary fire was boringm function wise. At least with the razorjack you could steer it a little and sorta skip it along walls and such. It was good for skipping it around corners.
The ripper's secondary was probably more useful on a case-to-case basis, but again:boring. It just blows up. Whoopity shit.

I like that the OG monster roster was there for the most part, or rather what would be their spiritual successors. That being said the cast does feel bloated a bit. Also the game was way too fucking long and its overdependance on arenas turned tiresome not long after I reached chapter 4.

I still stand by my opinion that Doom 2016 did arenas the best out of any game that tried hand at basing the combat around them. The game felt concise.

That was a cross promotion with Saint's Row The Third, I think.
Shadow Warrior, at least the version I bought, came with a bunch of options you could toggle for a preferred sword, a default one, one that looks sorta like the classic one with the barbs down on the spine of the blade, as well as some others, like a sledge hammer, the Excalibat out of the Rise Of The Triad remake, some sort of laser katana, and The Penetrator, out of Saint's Row. All cosmetic, performance will depend on what sword you actually have (and Default would just present the actual sword you had).

I'll say the game actually gives you a lot of options for graphics and stuff, particularly regarding how most console ports have dogshit for customization, if I recall correctly, it even let me turn off filters and shaders (like chromab), and configure my own crosshair style.

I like that each enemy in the Shadow Warrior reboot filled its own role, they all did something different and would require you to apply different tactics, and they played off each other well.

They *completely* threw that shit out of the window for Shadow Warrior 2, featuring a small variety of different monsters with certain behaviors, and then a couple of basically reskin sets of them, a demon set, a robot set, etc (if there's a demon of a certain kind, there'll be robot and yakuza equivalents to it, which behave exactly the same just with new appearances/sound and tweaked stats). It's kind of unbelievable how massively they dumbed down the gameplay in the sequel, you can apply the exact same tactics to 80% of all enemies, it fucks me in the ass just how mindless it all is.
It's a very quantity over quality kind of game, there's lots of stuff, but a lot of it is very much the same and there's little actual variety to be found in gameplay.

Shadow Warrior 2013 was decent, but does have that "using mostly your sword" problem. Not as good as Doom 2016 though.
Shadow Warrior 2 gives me the impression that the devs misunderstood the "game is too linear" complaints about Shadow Warrior 2013, and decided to ape off Borderlands.

Run around on the outer ring spamming bowling bombs on the lower levels to kill the enemies.
