Making a project... have a need to show pictures of it.

Recommended Posts

Hello there, everyone. I have decided to work on a new project... and I think it's going along quite smoothly. So, for fun, I am going to show you all development images of what I am doing... one at a time to wait and listen for comments.





100+ EXP to the guy who guesses where these textures are from!

You gained 100 EXP.

Level up! You are now LVL 10!

HP: 738+50 = 788
MP: 382+28 = 410
ATT: 51+5 = 56
DEF: 49+3 = 52
SPE: 30+2 = 32
INT: 49+4 = 53

Enjoy your new stats, try not to kill anyone... heh heh heh.


Now then...






I made a dark area with water, also using textures from SRB2.

Which source ports is this for and what type of gameplay?

You actually don't need to sign up and be online there. Imgur allows you to upload pictures and get/use their direct links without having an account.

Originally, I was just gonna use normal ol' ZDoom, but then I ported over to GZDoom due to the ease of use.

The final version of the project with be story based with multiple characters. It will have a similar play style of normal Doom, but with added weapons, features, enemies, and bosses with actual visible health bars... or at least health counters.

Now then, onto something not SRB2 textured.





I made a castle... don't know what I'm gonna put in it yet. I might be a beginning level or something.

Aren't those textures from SRB2 ?


Well... the flowers, water, and sky is... the sky is most likely placeholder for now... as well as the flowers... maybe.

Speaking of SRB2... moar SRB2!





Yep, I imported and lightly edited an old version of GFZ1, ya happy?

(Also ignore the robots for now.)

Well, today, I decided to show you all two images instead. This is something I created on the side I decided to add.




I made a metal building thing that uses 3D floors that is also in the middle of the forest. It is the area you spawn in at the beginning of the level.




And here is a little bit of the inside.

You can align those textures vertically with Shift-A, or at least you can in DB2.

Yes, I know. I did that shortly after, in fact, but I was too lazy to go back and take another picture.

Now, I have improved the geometry of the past level I showed you, and using decorate code, created...




New Enemies!

They all do about the same amount of damage, and damage you by running into you. They are...


Blue Crawls: Simple tank enemies that move slowly and take around 2 to 3 pistol shots to kill

Red Crawls: The more advanced version, they move a bit quicker and take around 4 to 5 shots to kill.

Blue Zeta Crawl: A more advanced looking model of the Blue Crawl. They most slightly faster and take 3 to 4 shots to kill.

Red Zeta Crawl: Again, a more complicated looking upgrade of their more rounder, smoother brothers. They are the fastest of the bunch and take around 6 to 8 hits to kill.

Well... I did something wrong.




Everything got red.




Even items.

Virtual Boy mode?




Somehow, this area is not red for some reason...


Well, I know what's gonna be my avatar when I manage to unlock custom avatars!

You just mapping in zDoom\UDMF and use Sector Color Thing, don't ya?


No, not exactly, I am using GZdoom, and I fixed that issue, it was a strange tag issue that I don't know what created it.


Now then, onto something interesting...




Springs! Yes, they actually work. As you can asume, the blue one only thrusts you up a bit, while the red one makes you soar high into the sky, while the yellow one is in between.

Well, F_SKY1 is just a flat that prints a parallax sky texture over itself and over upper textures of linedefs adjancent to it. If you expected the engine to display the map geometry behind the area covered by F_SKY1, as if the flat could have been actually seen through, you were wrong*. That sky cutoff you have there is nothing miraculous if you've used a sloped F_SKY1 ceiling to cut it off as I assume.

* Thanks to the special way how the engine treats F_SKY1, it actually may work, but only as long as there is no sector brightness variation, no non-F_SKY1 ceilings and no single-sided linedefs in the space between the camera and the to-be-cut-off-or-not object or part of the map.

I would have an update or two... but sadly, the project has been put on hold due to GZdoom builder breaking in 3D mode for some reason, crashing as soon as it is activated.

Can someone report that bug so I can continue working? Now so sure how to report bugs for that program.

Maybe you should try reinstalling it, was happening to me, a reinstall worked.

Edit : My old download was corrupted, i realized. that's why it was happening to me. You should actually try checking your video card. may be that.

When having problems with GZDoom Builder, the first thing to try is to just reboot your computer, the second (if the first one alone didn't help) is to update your graphic card driver (and reboot your computer), and the third is to uninstall and reinstall GZDoom Builder (and maybe reboot too).

I did everything... but I am certain that it is a programming error within the program itself. I have no idea how to fix it... or... work around it.

Did you try to update it? The menu has an updating option.

Also, do normal Doom maps work correctly?

Does it show the program-specific exception dialog (with the stack trace and the link to zdoom.org thread), or just the generic "Program stopped working" window?

If it's the latter, I'll need your project for testing.
If it's the former, can you post the stack trace? (But having the project would help in this case too).

I tried updating it again... but I think that is what caused this crashing thing.

It's the former... and I will do what when I have time.


EDIT, here is the full text time GZdoom builder generated.

Install GZDoom Builder somewhere else than into Program Files. Some operating systems handle file access permission in Program Files somehow specially, and quite a few Doom-related programs and utilities are known to be incompatible with it.

Looks like your videocard doesn't fully support DirectX 9. Try updating the drivers.
