I went ahead and posted under issues on the crispy-doom github fork. https://github.com/fabiangreffrath/crispy-doom, I'm pretty sure this is the one, since even the link to download the binary is being blocked by bitdefender.

Thanks, I will make some tests with the 5.8.0 version. Anyone knows if it have less problems with false positives?

I can't get the har to work on crispy doom. When selected the sprite flickers and shoots automatically

@TheOldKing1998 make sure you are using the -nodeh paramater, that should solve it.

I have a stupid idea

What about having an alternate dehacked file which makes the pistol have infinite ammo but the chainsaw uses bullets super fast but kills super fast like in the first version?

What do you think?

The game will be bugged if you give anything other than fists/csaw infinite ammo, and to make the chainsaw use ammo it would have to shoot like a gun.

  • Updated Crispy Doom to the 5.8.0 version (with widescreen support)

Alright, I decided to put only the main Crispy executable from 5.8.0, everything is working fine so you will be able to play with widescreen as intended before. This is the only change from the previous D4V version since I'm a bit busy with IRL stuff, so I will keep this version as 3.2.1. I also improved the convertion of a few textures.

Sorry for the tiny update. Hopefully it will be easier for people as they can just click & play and enjoy the latest crispy release. You can access the features from the options menu.

 

DOWNLOADS:

Spoiler

 

BTSX EDITION: DOWNLOAD v3.2.1

REGULAR: DOWNLOAD v3.2.1
----------
MS-DOS BTSX EDITION: DOWNLOAD v3.2
MS-DOS EDITION: DOWNLOAD v3.2

 

DISCLAIMER:

BTSX and D4V are NOT related. Back to Saturn X belongs to Sarah Mancuso and the BTSX Team and it was made without mods in mind. I recommend playing it as intended before trying with D4V or any other gameplay mod.

 


And as always: Please, read the instructions inside the file if you want to play with GZDoom or other ports! I improved the txt file so hopefully it will be a bit better to understand how to play. Thanks!

The HAR is still glitchy on Crispy doom

It's working fine here. Are you using the -nodeh parameter?

Hello everyone! I'm new here

I just started playing this mod, and I was amazed at both the quality and accuracy of the wad itself! It was like playing Doom 2016, on Classic Doom! 

I actually didn't play Doom 2016 and Doom Eternal but I watched my older brother play both games, and that got me interested in Doom as a whole. With my potato of a laptop however, the best Doom games that I can play is the Classic Doom and Doom II, via GZDoom

I wonder though, when are you gonna add the Doom Eternal versions of the classic sprites? Also, can the new demons themselves be added there without changing the code? I'd like to see your take on the Whiplashes and the Marauders. Thanks

Only saw the Cyber-mancubus' melee attack yesterday. I stay the hell away from mancubi for obvious reasons, hence it taking so long to discover. Genius!

 

I often think there's a slight analogy between vanilla modding vs scripting-enhanced modding and old-school VFX vs CGI.   Creating cool stuff with the stringent limitations of dehacked requires coming up with ingenious tricks from of a narrow set of tools.  With the modern toolset, obviously pretty much everything is possible, it's only a matter of effort and patience.

 

Of course, from the audience perspective a cool effect is just a cool effect however it was accomplished.  But I've dabbled a fair bit in Dehacked and I admire your craft.

 

Thanks again for the awesome mod, it's one of my favourites.

Hello there people. I read in the first post that there was a D4V-lite.wad that didn't had the MAP07 bug, where can I find it?

 

I wanted to mix this with Stronghold but because of the MAP07 fix I can't play the mod properly, please help :((

Tried DOS, Chocolate Doom, and Crispy Doom. None of them work for me. 


Dos: immediately closes and says thanks for playing. I can see for a split second it says no doom2.wad found, but I copied it in there.

Chocolate & Crispy: I can see the icon in my taskbar saying its open, with music playing in the background but no video.

All I did was extract them and try launch the .bat files.

 

Dragging D4V.wad onto gzdoom and zdoom doesn't work for me. Copying D4V.wad into the gzdoom/zdoom folder also doesn't show up in the WAD list. I can play any other WAD just fine through both gzdoom and zdoom.

 

Anyone have an idea of what I'm doing wrong? I've tried multiple versions and have the same issue

Try using the latest GZDoom version and the Doom Mod Loader

 

https://www.moddb.com/mods/doom-mod-loader/downloads/doom-mod-loader-v23

 

It works for me

 

By the way I have a little issue, why in the Icon of Sin boss fight it spams so many Aranea Imperatrix? It bugs me out because I tought the Arachnotron replacer was the Cyber-Mancubus, not the Spider Mastermind :((

 

Anyone knows if this is from the mod source code or my game is loading it wrong?

I had a crash when I tried loading this just with plutonia.wad and no other wads on both Crispy and Choco.

Hi! I'm running D4V on MBF 2.04 (maintenance release) using freedoom2.wad. It seems to be running, but I think there could still be an issue with the dehacked files not being skipped/loaded properly. I hope someone here can help, so I won't run into trouble later. I found that MBF doesn't have a -nodeh command line parameter, but it does load dehacked lumps automatically. There is a similar parameter -nodehwad, but afaik, that skips loading of all dehacked lumps, while -nodeh (when available) seems to skip dehacked lumps in IWADs only.

 

Which dehacked lumps should be skipped by -nodeh? (I think the freedoom wads also have dehacked lumps, so you'd probably want to skip those)

Which dehacked lumps should be loaded? For example, for episode 1, do any of btsx_e1a.wad btsx_e1b.wad D4V2.wad BTSX1D4V.wad have lumps that should be loaded?

The "HOW TO PLAY ON OTHER PORTS" file only lists D4V2.deh, but would I need btsx1.deh as well when using -nodehwad on MBF 2.04?

Last time I talked to him, the eternal version is considered but have yet to be worked on due to his real-life related stuff.

I feel that the biggest issue is the lack of good Doom Eternal weapon sprites. I don't think anyone has made them yet (or atleast ones that can compare with Doom 2016 sprites found in D4T and D4V).

Dear @Noiser,

 

in addition to my main project, the research for the soundtrack of D4V, I started at some point to investigate the changes for the development of D4V and discovered that there is no CHANGELOG, so after two weeks of intensive work I can finally report a successful completion:

 

I have created a complete CHANGELOG which lists all changes of D4V, based on the documentation in this thread, set in the lightweight markup language Markdown.

 

The format of this file is based on keep a Changelog, and adheres to Semantic Versioning.

## [1.0] -- 2019-09-03

### Added (for new features)

- new enemies:
  - Possessed:
    - Description: Replacing the Zombie man, the Possessed ones are slow and can only attack when closer to the player. It's the weakest enemy in the game, however he attacks almost instantly, causing some distress if you're low on health
    - Abilities: Melee: Scratch
  - Security:
    - Description: Probably the only enemy unchanged from vanilla, behaving exactly like the normal shot gunner. He will drop his weapon when killed.
    - Abilities: Attack: Shotgun fire
  - Imp:
    - Description: It's a lot faster compared to the original one, being able to avoid your shots just moving around. His fireballs are also faster and deals more damage.
    - Abilities: Melee: Scratch; Attack: Fireball
  - Pinky:
    - Description: The Pinky Demon can charge at high speed, glowing his face when running towards you. You can see him in the dark when that happens.
    - Abilities: Melee: Bite; Attack: Charge attack
  - Lost Soul:
    - Description: They have less health and will explode after touching you, however his blast will damage the player twice. When attacking, his flames changes from blue to red.
    - Abilities: Attack: Suicidal charge; Dead: Explosion
  - Hell Razer:
    - Description: Replacing the Chain gunner, the Hell Razer will fire a deadly beam that can drain your health in a matter of seconds. You can deal with him paying attention to the sound he makes when charging his weapon.
    - Abilities: Attack: Energy beam; Pain: Quick retaliation
  - Cacodemon:
    - Description: More aggressive than before, Cacodemons have the lowest "reaction time", meaning that he will shoot his projectiles more often. He will also instantly shot you after activating his Pain State.
    - Abilities: Melee: Bite; Attack: Fireball; Pain: Quick retaliation
  - Hell Knight:
    - Description: Powerful melee enemies that can charge at you and unleash a sequential number of punches. If you provoke him (activating his Pain State), he will blast the ground furiously, hitting enemies at distance (so he can fight back when unable to reach you).
    - Abilities: Melee: Punch; Attack: Lunge attack; Pain: Ground pound
  - Mancubus:
    - Description: The regular Mancubus can perform three different attacks: The first one is his well known attack with projectiles - unchanged from vanilla. However, if you get too close, he will use his flamethrower, quickly draining your health. On Pain State, he will perform a "mixed attack", shooting 2 projectiles and the flamethrower at the same time.
    - Abilities: Attack: Big fireballs; Pain: Fireballs and flamethrower; Melee: Flamethrower
  - Cyber-Mancubus:
    - Description: This one have an area-denial attack, shooting volatile projectiles that stays on the ground for a while and then explodes, damaging everything around him. His armour also gives immunity against splash damage, protecting him from his own explosions. If you get too close, he will grunt and perform a blast attack shooting his cannons at the ground. On pain-state, he will fire his regular projectiles but at a higher speed.
    - Abilities: Melee: Ground blast; Attack: Explosive plasma; Pain: Quick retaliation
  - Revenant:
    - Description: Revenants are back with jetpacks! He can use them in different ways. With his regular attack, he will just plain in position and fire two homing projectiles (that are faster, but causes less damage). However, after going through his Pain State, he may move with his jetpack, boosting his speed dramatically and allowing him to find another position to attack or avoid your shoots.
    - Abilities: Melee: Punch; Attack: Hover and Homing fire; Pain: Jetpack boost and Homing fire
  - Gore Nest:
    - Description: A link to the inner depths of hell, the portals opened by Gore Nests are now wide enough to be used by Lost Souls. Simply acting like a stationary version of Pain Elemental, the Gore Nests are very durable. When destroyed, they will spawn more souls activating two times the sequence used by Pain Elementals. Don’t worry though, most of them will explode right after birth, creating a very intense death animation for this thing.
    - Abilities: Attack: Spawn a Lost Soul; Dead: Spawn multiple Lost Souls (2x)
  - Summoner:
    - Description: Replacing the Arch-vile, Summoners are very, very fast. She can insta-move (or "teleport" if you wish) going from different positions in a matter of seconds. Also, can burst a huge barrage of homing projectiles and resurrect "summon" other enemies next to their dead bodies. Thankfully, she also has less HP than an Arch-Vile and a higher pain chance.
    - Abilities: Chase: Insta-moving; Attack: Projectile barrage; Special: Summoning (reviving)
  - Baron of Hell:
    - Description: Barons are extremely dangerous. They can mix the charge attack from Hell Knights with the explosive projectiles from Cyber-Mancubi. He is also immune to pain stunning and it’s extremely fast. With an aggressive behaviour, Barons of Hell can easily outstanding the player. Be careful and try to keep distance!
    - Abilities: Melee: Punch; Attack: Explosive shots; Attack: Lunge attack; Pain: Inverted sequence
  - Cyberdemon:
    - Description: Big, unpredictable and very powerful. The Balgaar Cybie have a big amount of health and four different Abilities: The unchanged missile attack from vanilla, the blade attack that shot at three different directions and a volley of homing missiles. He can also boost his speed similar to the Revenant, but in a more menacing way.
    - Abilities: Attack: Cyberdemon missiles; Attack: Fire blade attack; Attack: Homing missiles; Pain: Rush (speed boost)
  - Spider Mastermind:
    - Description: Have 3 different attacks that gets more and more dangerous. The first is a fast-paced attack with smaller projectiles, than she uses a spread attack with multi-directional projectiles and a single homing missile. Finally, she finishes with his "telekinetic" attack (that it’s just his habitual hit scan from vanilla). If you activate her pain-state, she will reset this pattern from the beginning, giving you some time before going back to the hit scan phase.
    - Abilities: Attack: Multiple shooting; Attack: Spread shooting and Homing missile; Attack: Telekinesis; Pain: Quick retaliation
- New weapons:
  - VORTEX RIFLE
    - Slot: 1
    - Description: It's a one-hit weapon with perfect accuracy, made for precision shots. It fires all your bullets at once. The more bullets you have, more chance to kill your enemy.
    - PROS: You can use it to aim or kill multiple enemies in a row.
    - CONS: You have one chance to hit your target and you will lose all your bullets. The weapon may look OP, but the lack of ammo can screw you over. Use it wisely.
  - MARK V PISTOL
    - Slot: 2
    - Description: This weapon uses a chargeable energy. You can aim and hold your fire with it.
    - PROS: It's stronger than the regular pistol
    - CONS: It's a lot slower than well
  - HELLSHOT
    - Slot: 3
    - Description: Fire a single-shot with two bolts at the same time. The first one is a strong concentrat shot, the second is more open, closer to a shotgun shot.
    - PROS: You can easily pierce weaker enemies. Deals more damage than a shotgun. The first bolt is accurate and can be used to snipe weaker enemies.
    - CONS: The fire-rate is a lot slower than the shotgun, making you more vulnerable between each shot.
  - THE REAPER
    - Slot: 3
    - Description: It shoots three-times in a row, making it a rapid-fire shotgun weapon. If you decide to concentrate all the shots on a single enemy, it will deal the same amount of damage to an SSG.
    - PROS: Instead of using all the shots on the same enemy, you can spread the damage on more than one target and with relatively good accuracy.
    - CONS: If you miss one of the shots, you will not only waste your ammo but also a good amount of damage. The impact is not as immediate as an SSG shot.
  - HEAVY ASSAULT RIFLE
    - Slot: 4
    - Description: Precise shooting without the need of waiting. Snipe-tapping is 100% accurate.
    - PROS: You can tap your fire to snipe enemies or conserve ammo. There is no cool down animation, making it a better option for weapon-switching.
    - CONS: It's weaker than the chain gun, with slower fire-rate (but it's still more powerful than the regular chain gun from Doom 2)
  - GRENADE LAUNCHER
    - Slot: 5
    - Description: Launch grenades that flies on an arc movement (it will affect Cyber demons as well) The pick-up ammo gives 2 grenades instead of one,
    - PROS: A lot faster than the Rocket Launcher, better control of splash-damage that can be used to hit specific targets or to fire down on holes.
    - CONS: It's short ranged, limiting his use against far-away enemies. The grenade impact deals less damage than a rocket.
  - LIGHTING GUN
    - Slot: 6
    - Description: A precise bolt of energy that can reach enemies at distance or kill them faster when close to them.
    - PROS: Very powerful, can stun and kill enemies very quickly. A mix of hit scan and projectile.
    - CONS: Consumes a lot of energy and It's easy to waste ammo unnecessarily. You will need a good amount of cells for an effective use of it
  - GAUSS CANNON
    - Slot: 7
    - Description: Extremely powerful mid-range weapon that can destroy a single demon with just one shot. It's a bit volatile due to splash-damage, so you may need some time to master it.
    - PROS: A strong blast of energy that can be used to dispatch big enemies almost instantly, dealing a huge amount of damage. Shot with immediate impact - you don't have to wait for projectiles. Consumes less ammo than a BFG shot.
    - CONS: Doesn't have tracers like the BFG 9000 - it's not very effective against large groups of enemies. You have to be precise with your shots.
- New demon abilities:
  - Mancubi with flamethrowers
  - Revenants using jetpacks
  - charging Pinkies
  - insta-moving Summoners
  - all the good stuff!
- Tough weaponry:
  - As the 2x faster Chain gun
  - the Super Chainsaw that can kill almost any demon
  - a _glory-killing_ sequence of punches
  - weapons with faster animations
  - Visually, it’s a mix of the original sprites by Neccronixis with some details from Franco Tieppo's version
- A refined set of enemy sprites:
  - At least a better job compared to my initial attempts from 2016, some of them reworked from scratch
- The Doom4mator:
  - An extensive change of textures / flats to set any map on a Doom 2016 mood,
  - including foundries on the surface of Mars or Hellish canyons filled with toxic waste
- Powered by DMXOPL:
  - The amazing sound bank made by Csonicgo
  - Listen to a new selection of tracks (a few of them from Doom 2016) with improved OPL instruments
  - Perfect for some heavy djent riffs!
- Unusual vanilla effects:
  - Bright maps for sprites and textures
  - Blood splats on floors
  - A custom palette with vivid tones
  - New COLORMAP tint effects
  - Aligned weapons when fired
  - Quick-weapon switching
  - Monsters with multiple abilities
  

 

 

Maybe you can use this CHANGELOG to document all future changes in the development of D4V and even attach it to the respective release as a file.

 

The only things missing are:

 

  1. The integration of the D4V-Lite version: Is there a separate CHANGELOG for this version? I noticed that the development of D4V-Lite was not official at first, later it was included in the regular versions, but now it has been removed from the regular versions again.
  2. The integration of the Unhitched version by @Grizzly: Is this version official approved and still active in development? Is the integration in the regular versions planned?
  3. Version 3.0: When version 3.0 was released, no changes were documented. Is there a separate CHANGELOG for this version?

 

best regards

Remarks

 

1. Duplicate MIDI track files (1-to-1 copies) are not listed.

2. #NA stands for "Information not available".

 

Summary

 

1. 14 tracks I could completely identify.

2. 9 tracks are still pending, maybe these are the songs of the following artists, which I am still looking for and are not listed yet:

    - @#NA (Frankibo): No profile found

    - @pcorf / @timpani (Paul Corfiatis)

3. The non-exhaustive list of free-to-use MIDI music from the doomwiki.org was a great help.

@Noiser: Do you have any more information, so that i can continue my research in detail? I think that the missing tracks might have been changed and don't match the original, the search for them won't be easy.

 

Stay healthy and well.

 

Thanks for your support and best regards
