[SIGIL RELEASED] Doom GBA: Delta - A friendly cousin of Doom 32x: Delta

Recommended Posts

TITLEPIC.png.32350231542d78ad496d80aa3aa78f50.png

 

NOTE: I recommend playing Doom 32x: Delta by @Roebloz to get a bit of background on this.

 

The original GBA port of Doom used the simplified maps found in the Jaguar port as well as the 32x port. However, the ROM hacks Doom 32x: Delta and its friendly cousin Doom GBA: Delta fixes this by adding the original PC maps back into both ports. This hack uses the optimised Doom 32x: Delta map-set, meaning all maps run and play good.

To run this, obtain a Doom GBA ROM and patch the ROM with one of the included xDelta patches via this web patcher. Now load the patched Delta ROM on your favourite emulator (I recommend mGBA) or flashcard!

 

THINGS TO NOTE:

  • Thanks to svKaisers decensoring patch, that means all the red blood and gore are here!
  • Level geometry is kept (mostly) intact from 32x Delta.
  • Texture variety is lowered. This is due to how some new textures can become corrupted when added in the ROM, but I can replace unneeded textures with textures of my liking (i.e replacing Hell textures with tech base textures for episode 1).
  • Music has been reorganised, meaning that each track plays on the right map. Plus I found an unused track, that being Hiding the Secrets.
  • Probably best to play with static lighting. The vanilla maps can chug sometimes with dynamic lighting, so with the more detailed maps in Delta, I'd suggest to play with static lighting.
  • Yes, I am aware about the GBA PrBoom port but I think doing stuff like this is fun.
  • As Roebloz accidentally deleted MAP00 from 32x: Delta episode 2, I made my own map: Barrels of Fun! A shortened version of the is included in the episode 2 patch.

 

BUGS & ISSUES

  • There seems to be a lot of clipping issues in some of the maps. I cannot fix this.

Doom GBA: Delta episode four is out!

This release was quite quick, as it used a lot of Jaguar textures. However I decided to give some of the maps minor fixes to make it more PC-like. Also, please use static lighting. The frame-rate in the previous episodes were pretty average, but episode 4 gives the GBA quite a workout. About MAP09 from 32x: Delta, It's after the NUTS map, so if you want to play it, load the NUTS map, then pause the game and hold L+R and press this button combo:

A, B, A, A, B, B, B, A

It should send you to the extra map.

 

Have fun! https://drive.google.com/file/d/17hPYhD178elMKfOa-kn2bUZ0XTl07w_J/view?usp=sharing

 

should also mention that episode 1-3 got some small patches. so yeah.

It used Jaguar textures since it was originally its own standalone release (As Thy Flesh Consumed 32x) and I did not import new textures for that one. (This is also why MY release was fast, since I only did some small corrections to the textures and maps)

Fascinating! I forgot that Doom was released on GBA. I wish I could get my hands on the console so I could try this one out.

You could always just emulate it (I recommend mGBA). Or alternatively (if you have one) hack your 3DS to and create custom virtual console games with your own roms.

Nice work man, both ROM hacks are awesome, I was going to ask if you were going to do Si6il, but I think you need permission from Jimmy Romero, right?

i dont recomend the 3ds alternative for trying this bad boy out

the gba virtual console doesnt run perfectely and even on simple games like final fantasy 5 ive noticed slow downs while walking in the map

its a good emulation tool and it runs like a dream but unless you got a new 3ds i recomend you take a look at emulators on the pc  or on the cellphones

GBA Doom works fine for me as a VC inject.

I mean if Roebloz had permission to port it to the 32x then I should (hopefully) be fine to port it to the GBA

Not exactly GBA Delta related but I'm experimenting with the COLORMAP and I created some fake coloured lights. PSX Doom GBA anyone?

I reckon you use Slade for these COLORMAPS?

Partially.

The last four colours on the map are used for the four sector colours (red, green, blue, and yellow). Really all I did with SLADE3 was convert the COLORMAP into the right format. The editor for GBA Doom that I'm using can't change the COLORMAP within the ROM so I had to use a hex editor (HxD) to replace the data directly.

Sigil is in the works. E5M1-E5M5 have been completed.

And also, a new weapon is going to be added and I think it works quite well considering the theme of the episode. What will it be?

We couldn't have the Icon of Sin in episode 3, but it's coming back in SIGIL!

Not sure if you should add new weapons unless it's the SSG.

I'm replacing the Plasma Rifle with the UnMaker. It fires a bit slower but each laser does more damage. Unfortunately though it doesn't fire 3 lasers at once.

Sigil GBA is ~80% finished. All maps are included and the Icon of Sin is finished so all that's need is some polishing up. Expect the release in a few days!

Doom GBA: Delta Episode 5 - Sigil is now RELEASED!

Sigil is now on the GBA and it's better than ever! And to make up for a lack of an Icon of Sin fight in episode 3, its coming back in Sigil! This was a fun episode to work on, and I should give Roebloz all the credits for craming Sigil on the 32x! (not to mention also getting a mention by Romero on the Cacowards thread). So, does this mark the end of GBA Delta? Probably not as I have to do the bonus episode from 32x Delta. I'm still not exactly sure if I may do Plutonia but don't worry, my GBA Doom modding career doesn't end here as I'm working on a few other projects as well and I'm even contributing to the original Doom 32x Delta project as well!

P.S: If you encounter any issues/bugs with Sigil or even any of the other episodes, please let me know!

Later ;)
