OK, I know that I have drifted away from Doom comunity, so when I found the remains
of my old project "Elidor" for ZDoom, I tought why not release them so that people
can use what is available now. I have not touched this stuff for about three years. :(
When you extract the content, there should be three folders, each may contain other folders:
--- --- Face-Dev
--- --- Font-Dev
--- --- Fonts
--- --- Old
--- --- Other
--- --- Palette
--- --- Sprites
--- --- Textures
Raw: Contains raw material usable for other people to develop their wads.
Face-Dev: Contains raw material used to make some Doom hud emotion face sets.
Font-Dev: Contains Photoshop PSDs that I used to make fonts.
Fonts: Contains PNG images that I would convert directly to ZDoom font characters.
Old: Some old sprites that need to be converted to Elidor palette.
Other: Some other images for the interested ones.
Palette: Photoshop format palette of Elidor, useful to convert images to Elidor palette.
Note: In Face-Dev folder there are some Fage-Gen files which I used to make those faces.
Wads: Contains three wads.
[ELIPAL.WAD] : Elidor palette.
[ELI1.WAD] : Elidor patches and textures, requires [ELIPAL.WAD].
[TST1.WAD] : My old Elidor menu test wad converted to new palette, requires [ELIPAL.WAD].
Note that [TST1.WAD] makes good use of fonts that I have developed for Elidor.
Work: Contains some textures and sprite bitmaps in Elidor palette.
Faces: Contains some face sets that I developed hoping to replace the hud emotion face.
Sprites: Contains some sprite bitmaps in Elidor palette, needs some renaming.
Textures: Contains some texture patches that are combined into textures inside [ELI1.WAD].
Hope someone can use these resources to make great Doom mods. :)
These are only textues and a other images, so people, you should prepare some
title screens and sprites and hud images in Elidor palette before you can use
Converting old doom resources to the new palette would be a quick but crude option
that may be good for the beginning, but ultimately developing new hud and title
images and sprites for the new palette that are on-par with the new textures would
be a better solution that requires more work to complete.
The scripts and fonts and some other resources are inside [TST1.WAD].
Someone can change the hud emotion face sets to fonts and use them to make a modern hud.
I wanted to make a face selection menu to select the face for the player.
Good luck and good bye people, and thanks for the good time that I have spent with you. :)
