InstantDoom: screw #weaponchanges

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I'm back again with another awesome Doom mod!!!

In today's fast paced, tweeting, snapchatting, yo-ing world, who wants to wait for your stupid pistol to rise up from the bottom of the screen? Or when you pick up a shotgun, you have to wait for your current gun to sloowwwwly drop down... and then a few millennia later your shotgun finally saunters into view... UGH!

Well, those days are over with

~~~InstantDoom~~~




(GIF recorded in real time)

That's right, with this simple DeHackEd file, you no longer have to wait around for weapon transitions! Pretend Doom is a fast-twitch game instead of the glacial snorefest we've all endured for several decades!

Download now!!








(realtalk: for some reason it occurred to me today that you could use DeHackEd to make weapon changes instantaneous, even in vanilla Doom, but no one had ever noticed or attempted it. 15 minutes later, here we are.)

I laughed. I cried. I did so very rapidly! Thank you, instant changes!

I made this EXACT dehacked file about 3-4 years ago and thought people would hate it! Shows how much I know!

ZDaemon has had this DMFLAG in server configuration settings for a long time, even before 1.09, for anyone who is in the server hosting business.

Man, when you have both shotguns and hold the shotgun slot.

Indeed. It is terrible. This is why I rejected this idea when I wanted to implement it in my own wad once.

At least the game doesn't crash when I die, which is what happened to me with my own DEHACKED. Impressive trick with Unknown DEHACKED fields instead of zero duration Lower and Raise states.

I think it was already done way back, as soon as people saw Quake and wondered if they could make Doom work that way too.

I think you forgot something there. Something along the lines of "Not to be confused with InstaDoom". Or something like that.

Did you set the misc1/misc2 fields to the right values, or make the weapon switch states zero-length? (Because, yeah, that locks up the game when you die.)

I ask only because it seems like the function of the misc fields have never really been properly documented.

Great now I can stop being spawnkilled in duels and secretly crying deep down even though I know this is allowed to happen.
