Magier : Zauberer Continuation Idea

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Magier :

 

Hi there, i thought of making a zauberer continuation designed for zdoom, zauberer existed as an pwad then was completley removed, i browsed through old repos and then found a zaub.wad file, i made an IWADINFO file and changed it from PWAD to IWAD, and it worked! in fact here is a screenshot of a map that i made for testing :

Screenshot_Hexen_20220520_154334.png.490c0985eb761c04a6913425efbd9960.png

You can ask for the IWAD in a Doomworld PM, however since that im at this point now i'd like to release it fully sometime and maybe let people fix the currently seen bugs and add textures and wall textures, look, you might be asking : "why more video game clones when you can buy them?" and you totally forget the point about poor people not being able to buy it or it not being available to the country as a hole, Magier is really trying to help people play full hexen game just a little different, however gameplay stays the same.

 

How to suggest a texture/map :

 

Step 1 : Take whatever map/texture you want to put in HUGE NOTE : NEVER EVER USE FROM THE ORIGINAL HEXEN

Step 2 : Make a reply to this thread showing it and i may put it TINY NOTE : if a texture name its lump.

Step 3 : Wait for Frost-Core to insert it.

Thanks Cire! sadly i do have licensing issues :

I realized that it had no music whatsoever so i added blasphemers main theme, then i realized blasphemer is not in isc license.

about progress there are working things and not working ones :

What is working :

Mage works fine

Inventory and cheats too

What is NOT Working :

Thing placment shows exclamation marks 

Other Weapons

The Cleric is missing an animation frame

It is needing textures right now, as you can see

Because heretic has more content than hexen ofc blasphemer has proper reason to exist

please name me at least 50 hexen maps that were made in the last 10 years

Why would anyone PM you for the iwad when it’s freely available here: https://github.com/Voros2/zauberer-iwad

 

Just fork it and carry on.

 

The reason Blasphemer is more popular and actually got nearly finished is because:

 

1: No awful hub system

2: No need to have multiple classes each with their own difficulty in the maps

3: No need to deal with ACS

Then perhaps instead of being an Ideas Guy, you start learning what DEUTEX, SLADE, and UDB are and how they work.

 

You aren't getting anywhere fulfilling your idea's if you don't know what you are doing.

 

Because the only thing i know you are doing right now is what's in your user title.

Sorry but that is the most bass ackwards way of getting community assistance/input that I've seen in some time. Allowing random people to assign random textures to a project when they have no way of seeing how well they mesh with other random people's random textures? You'll end up creating a spiritual successor to LSD Dream Emulator.

 

Nobody is worried about HeXen "not being available for purchase anymore", because if it comes to that most people will feel justified in sailing the high seas to obtain it. And creating a HeXen-equivalent is not the same thing as preserving HeXen, which is what you are arguing.

I just realized that you should never ever put maps that are not under BSD/ISC Licenses, also this project helps people that can not buy hexen because it is banned/unheard of. or just help poor people. and also i really think that making an IWAD is really fun and i get to boost my doom knowledge :)

That's the best reason for doing anything. But realistically, you have to acknowledge that the vast majority of people who wish to buy Hexen, but cannot, are just going to pirate it. And if they haven't heard of Hexen, they aren't going to be looking for a Hexen equivalent. If you enjoy working on it, by all means continue to have fun and expand your knowledge on the way. But this is a pretty cumbersome thing that caters to a very, very small and niche crowd (in all likelihood, probably people who just want to see the new graphics :P). In other words, I wouldn't worry about creating this project to please anyone else. Do it for yourself. There's nothing wrong with that :)

 

In fact, as an aside I would like to point something out to new mappers/modders in general: people are generally going to be more receptive to the idea of helping you if you're like Frosty here and are working on something for the purpose of enjoyment and learning in general, as opposed to trying to achieve some lofty and ambitious crowd-pleasing goal right off the bat.
