Predator Sound FX

About This File

Ok, so here are the Predator sounds for Doom, tested with Doom v1.2. We wasted the better part of a night's rest to put them together. A few notes regarding some of the sounds in Predator:

The sound of the BFG is a spliced sound of the Predator's laser. It has two parts, three beeps and a whoosh. In the movie the beeps come after the whoosh but in the BFG, well, the beeps come first.

Many lines in the movie were "chopped" for clarity.
"I'll bleed you (2 second pause) real quiet."
"I'll bleed you real quiet." (no pause)

The chaingun sound was a total compromise. We would have loved to have used Blane's minigun, but when sampled and run with doom, instead of a chaingun it sounded like industrial machinery, no matter how many times we tried. So instead we settled for the sound of normal machine gun fire. In pistol mode it sounds terrible and even in chaingun we found the sound to be mediocre. But oh well. What can we say. T2.WAD and ALIENS2.WAD are two instances where the chaingun sounds good for different reasons. T2 just looped a single pistol shot. In ALIENS2 the compromise is that the pistol sounds cheesy while the chaingun sounds at least halfway decent. The same could not be said about Predator.

(Ultimately a gunshot from a Doom audio package was selected. Not my idea, but D.W.'s - T.T.)

      Insanity, with voodoo dolls (see second screenshot).  I get the idea of a shooting gallery if that rocks your boat, but 6000 monsters behind railings- as far as the eye can see, FFS! My PC crawled when I looked towards the invuln spheres (someone said 32 k of them and you can't avoid picking up thousands at a time). In the end I cheated with god mode and no-clipping, and waded in among the chaingunners until I got bored.

      Simple, clearly a first wad.  All on the flat with big, brightly lit, and architecturally implausible rooms. The first map has two rooms, the second map one, and the third map one plus a kind of exit lobby. You can do one of two things - just run past the monsters and finish (I did it in 35 seconds), or have a bit of fun killing the monsters first. No noticable bugs. I hope the author will go on (or went on) to greater things.

      Absolutely ludicrous, Now I need a new keyboard. Technically as bad as a wad can be, surely deliberate. I like to check out low-rated wads, so it's a pity that some clowns gave this  (and other bad ones) 5 stars, because averaged with correct low scores they end up with a middling rating and can be missed.
