Anyone have good GZDoom Builder tutorials?

Recommended Posts

Chubzdoomer has a lot of good youtube videos. Check his Doom Builder tutorials playlist. Many of them are for Doom Builder 2, but all newer versions of the program will have the same features, even if they've been expanded or they're in a different location.

 

And yes, Ultimate Doom Builder is the newest version of the program. It's the successor to GZDoom Builder, being developed by the same team. Use that if possible.

Doom Builder: An Illustrated Guide

This was written with the original Doombuilder (Doombuilder not Doombuilder2) in mind.

Since then much has changed, but it is still valid for the basic functionality of even the latest iteration of the editor, which is Ultimate Doom Builder.

 

It seems that most people using one of the DB family editor do overlook that there is a comprehensive reference manual which is included with every download. It is accessible from the Help tab.

As Lüt said, Chubzdoomer on YouTube has a list of comprehensive tutorials which are definitely worth a watch if you're starting out.

As an aside: I just want to say that SLADE3 also comes with a really sweet built-in map editor. It's worth looking at that IMO, since it would save you on juggling between multiple programs when making your mods. There's tutorials for it on the website if you're interested. I mention this because not a lot of people are aware of SLADE3's map editor and while it's maybe not as bleeding edge as Ultimate Doom Builder it's just as powerful in a lot of ways.

Check out SublimelyElegant, Chubzdoomer & Chris Moyer on YouTube.


Also look up existing topics on this forum and the zdoom.org forum and check the zdoom.org wiki page.

 

I find that most of the time I can either solve my own problems or find the answers online somewhere.

I have no knowledge of scripting but I can still use ACS and SLADE3, Doom editing isn't that hard if you keep things fairly simple.

Don;'t be afraid to ask for help when you need it, just make sure you look around first to see if your problem already has a solution.

Historically that is not quite correct.

 

GZDoom  Builder was a project by MaxED, based on Codeimp's Doombuilder2 and with his blessing.

GZDoom Builder - Bugfix was a project by ZZYZX based on MaxED's GZDB, and

Ultimate Doom Builder is a project by ZZYZX, et al, to rename the editor and improve it further.
