DOOM 4 VANILLA v2.1 [NEW!!] - FIXES & BALANCING

Recommended Posts

This better be hosted on Odamex now that it's compatible with it!

Also, really liking the rebalances to the game, in particular the Chainsaw and Baron nerfs.

Great job with this update!

fantastic work :D really excited that Linguica's weapon switching is officially part of this.

 

do you think you might also be able to provide .zip mirrors for all the .rar files at some point? edit: I'm dumb and you already did, thanks Noiser!!

Oh, It should be there already. 

Btw, have a look at the OTEX patch @Tango, it may be handy for your maps

OK! Same 486 challenge is still out there waiting to be beaten. Also, new addition to that challenge, make this mod run on any wacky devices you can make it run. Try copy machines, ATMs, Car Nav systems, ANYTHING that can run this, do it! Youtube or it didn't happen! Happy trails!

 

Note: I am not a programming whiz or an owner of old hardware, so I cannot do either! :)

Hey, so I'm fairly new to the Doom community. I have some experience with getting mods to work, i.e. Project Brutality via ZDL, a hud mod and music to go with that, and using GZDoom in general as a source port. I've read through this thread and still have no idea how to run this through GZDoom. Can I use ZDL? Or is there some shit i just don't know. An in depth guide would be great...

there's no in depth guide to load wads , its all the same no matter which wad you want to run with gzdoom , as i said before the default syntax for a bat file is this

 

[port.exe] -iwad [doom.wad or doom2.wad] -file [wad] [mod/s] [map7fix] [and pk3/ipk3 files]

 

So this is how your DOOM2 + D4V .bat file should look

gzdoom.exe -iwad doom2.wad -file d4v.wad

 

Scythe + D4V

gzdoom.exe -iwad doom2.wad -file scythe.wad d4v.wad fscythe.wad

 

This works with all sourceports (and even on ms-dos) if you want to play on crispy doom create the same file on your crispy doom folder and replace gzdoom.exe for crispydoom.exe or if you are playing on ms-dos/dosbox mbf.exe and the rest is the same.

 

i'm not a gzdoom player , but i always test all my wads on almost every port (main is vanilla on dosbox) but i like to test them on chocolate doom / crispy doom (i like the fact that i can manually set a 16:10 aspect ratio ) , eternity , mbf for windows and gzdoom 

 

Hope it helps

 

PS: the pk3 and ipk3 files are only needed for loading extra stuff like a new hud , not needed to play this particular mod

yep! I use ZDL for everything and it works here for me too. just add d4v.wad (no need to add the deh file or anything else) to your file list, select GZDoom, and launch. should be good to go from there! are you experiencing any particular trouble with this method, or were you just uncertain if it would work properly?

I was concerned it wouldn't work, so i figured I'd ask first. Thx!

@Tango Thx for the help! I just got it running through ZDL and it's great! Will have to try out the maps next as well, see if I can get thos runnning as well.

Don't forget that D4V.wad should be above the pWADS to work as intended.

You should be able to see the DOOM 2016 TITLE SCREEN if it's the correct order.

 

I added more information about this on the "txt" file.

But it depends on pWADS and what is more important to you, DOOM 2016 TITLE SCREEN or pWADS music, for example.

Oh shit, I had to fix a new bug with the Berserk doesn't switching your weapon to the fists (GZDoom)

 

I think it's not enough to call it "2.1.1", so I will just leave as 2.1.

I would kindly ask you to download again if you want that fixed. The link was already updated.

 

Sorry about that!

I know exactly what you mean. Happens when you change the fist actor. Berserk powerup still expects the old fists.

Personally I actually like this "bug" since you rarely want to actually do fistfighting when picking up berserk packs.

I'm still having an issue with Computer Deathmatch 4. The Hell Razer that replaces the chaingun player\bot is abusing bfg shots instead of the red lasers

I think it's safe to say you're not going to be able to combine this with other dehacked patches like comp-dm.

You can't combine DEHs with other stuff willy nilly, it doesn't work that way. If two DEHs work together it's because neither changes anything the other one changes. They aren't strictly additive in the way you might expect mods in other games to be.

Oh wow... yikes. I'm open for alternatives on chocolate vita, since they're the only ones i could find. If comp-dm cooperated better, it'd be more enjoyable than dying multiple times to the bfg spam.

I haven't used any DOOM Mods in years and would love to get this one working.

 

The download links re-direct to dropbox where I am unable to do anything except save the file as a webpage which in turn takes me back to the dropbox. How can I save as a .zip to extract? Am I missing something? :(

On the top-right corner you can find a Download button - just click there and choose "Direct Download"

That is what I thought should be there but it is just showing a blank screen. It is picking up that I am signed into Dropbox and allows me to comment but now download. RIP :(

 

I've been pulling it up in Chrome. I tried it on Microsoft Edge and it let me download. YAY! :D

 

THANKS!

I got it. For some reason the direct download wasn't showing in Chrome for me. Weird. I've never had a problem with Dropbox in the past so I assumed I was doing something wrong.

in case it does ever happen again, I think if you take any dropbox download link and change the "dl=0" at the end to "dl=1", it'll just download the file directly instead of showing the webpage and making you click the download button yourself. I haven't extensively tested it, but I started doing this with all my dropbox links recently and it seems to work!
