One Single Imp and Maybe Like Three Archviles (don't download please)

Recommended Posts

Why do you post a map and provide a download link while stating that we shouldn't download this?

 

It's your genius marketing plan?

Would you believe me if I told you I made the wad on my Windows 7 laptop from 2010? I play tested it once.

You know how in Skyrim if a giant hits you, you fly thousands of feet into the air? I feel like the same thing would happen to you if you ran into the middle of the Archvile pit.

I got similar performance results on GZDoom as everyone else already said.

 

Out of sick curiosity I ported this to Boom format (that is, copy pasted everything into a new editor window and changed the 1 single linedef action in the map) to see how it would run in PR/GLBoom. According to the idrate stats, If all monsters are idle or only the imp is awake, I get a decent 80-100 fps on GL, even if over 40,000 sprites are rendered in a frame, which is pretty impressive. Once everyone is awake, frames are pinned consistently at 3 fps. In software with uncapped framerate I got about 30 fps when looking at the viles, and 2 fps when they're active, which impressed the hell out of me because there are plenty of maps I can't even walk 10 feet into in software without instantly getting 15-20 fps. I didn't get any freezes or CTD.

 

There is of course absolutely nothing edifying or useful to learn from any of this, it's pointless.

By "play tested" you mean you ran it and it loaded up... right...? You didn't actually, well, manage in a timely manner to kill all three archviles (and the imp)?

I believe that.  I own computers much older than that so this is very easy for me to believe :D

Actually that's exactly what happens. Unfortunately the skybox is rather low, so you cant really see the full extent of the launch.

Then that's actually pretty cool! I wonder if there is like a glitch that could happen with that? like get launched out of the map into like a weird area of floating textures.

I once spent a pointless afternoon killing everything in NUTS.wad - IDDQD'ed, and IDKFA'd many times,  but killed everything. No fucking idea why I wasted my time like that...
