Started 19th December 2001, stopped work for three
months in January, continued for a bit in April,
got sidetracked with a Millennium map for a month,
then got sidetracked with a programming assignment
for a month, did more work on it in July, left it
alone until January 2003, and FINALLY finished it.
Tool(s) used : Zeth, WadAuthor, Paint Shop Pro, DeuTEX
Known Bugs : My scripts probably aren't 100% perfect, but just
look at the size of the source file! That's
ludicrous for just one map! *ahem* On with it then.
Will Not Run With... : Total Annihilation
The ZIP this text file and WAD came in has two extra zips, those zips being
CAMTUT.ZIP and SPECHTUT.ZIP. CAMTUT is a cameras tutorial I wrote after
releasing Doom - The Arcade Game release 1, and SPECHTUT is a much cleaner
version of the speech system incorporated in this map.
* General info *
[21:34] <GooberMan> I don't think I'll ever consider the map complete, but
there'll come a point where I say 'fuck it' and upload it (much like what I
did with Doom Arcade)
Running the WAD:
Copy GE1-SSO.WAD and GATEWAY.CFG to the Doom 2 directory,
then go to Start Menu/Run and type in "<directory>\zdoom.exe gateway.cfg"
(taken from GE_MAN.TXT)
1.4 Important binds
VERY IMPORTANT! IF YOU DO NOT FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS IN THIS SECTION, YOU WILL
NOT BE ABLE TO COMPLETE THE GATEWAY EXPERIMENTS!
The Gateway Experiments adds some keys to the configure keys menu. These keys,
found under the "Gateway Experiments Interface Options" section, are called
"Cycle Choices" and "Activate Choices." By default, these keys should be bound
to G and H respectively, but if this is not the case, you will need to set
these binds yourself.
Right, now that I've said that, I will also say go in to the manual if you
have any questions, chances are there's a section for your question in there,
and if not send me an email and it will probably get added.
First for a ZDoom mod: Scripted interactive speech system :) Not the first
for a Doom port (Eternity, ZXDoom), but certainly shows that you don't have
to wait for a port to be released to give speech a try. Feel free to use
the speech system in your own mod.
