REKKR - V1.16

Pretty sure most port don't care whether a file has an IWAD or PWAD signature. I know you can do things like load Doom 1 as a PWAD in Doom II, or vice-versa, and it technically works.

Everything except vanilla, which only displays the usual PWAD warning as a result.

DEHACKED is the Doom EXE Hack Editor. You can't dehack WADs.

depends on the source-port, i think
PRBoom+ and DoomRetro give me problems sometime ago with some pwads not recognized as iwads :/

yeah, i know HOW dehacked work, pal.
Patching the .exe with the all the modification specified on a patch file.
I was asking what changes on the .exe hex code beside just searching for another wad when changing the doom.wad string.
OpenRift already cleared it.

Anyway, I have finally beaten Episode 2. The boss is a much-welcomed overhaul of the classic Cyberdemon fight.

 

Now, on to Episode 3!

In E3M3, if I hug the pillar in the center of the northern lava pool, I can get the Ethereal Guard without lowing the pillar.

 

In E3M4, I have noticed that above the platemail armor secret, there is a secret cave with a pair of boots of protection and a legless corpse. How can I reach it without noclipping?

 

Also, I have spotted a missing texture (which I initially mistook for a teleporter):

I'll check out e3m3.

In e3m4 you have to launch yourself over with a rune. It's just a joke, not a real secret. Guy blasted his legs off to get over there and all he got were boots. 

That's not a missing texture, it's on purpose. Just to make you unsure of the jump.

I hate you.

 

Joking aside, playing E3M9 makes me wish I could play Doom and Heretic levels with REKKR. :P

Spotted a typo in Episode 3's victory screen: " being pull back to the land"

 

Also, in the DeHackEd file, E4M8 is titled "Gardien", which I'm fairly certain is french for "Guardian".

 

Finally, I have noticed that both the Turret and the Skelespider keep shooting at walls after they lose sight of you.

Ah. Gardien is the name of the boss. It was a placeholder before I settled on Ill Elli. Whoops*

The turret are skelespider are like that on purpose. I had issues with the turret reactivating (could've just been my new-ness to dehacked) and a skelespider does that so he occasionally catches you around a corner.
REKKRMON.zip <--- Lets you play with some facsimile of REKKRs monsters/weapons in doom. It's not perfect (chaingunners are just weapon drops, and I don't remember why), and it uses the weapons original firing speeds and such, and it doesn't have the new monsters. It was kinda made on a lark. It works with doom/doom2/freedoom 1/2. Not Heretic. Works best with doom1/freedoom phase 1.
Also monster obits will be wrong.
Also Icon of Sin is unbeatable because you don't have a rocketlauncher. He also fires like 3 times as fast for some reason. Dunno why I did that.

 

*Whoops. The correct name for E4M8 is guardian/gardien. Not Ill Elli. They used to be one map, but it... broke. So yeah. It probably should be Gardien.

Speaking of Gardien, one thing I need to mention just before someone inevitably does the proper IWADification of the game.

 

DSSSSIT is still in .wav format and not the Doom one like the rest of the sounds. Most source ports won't have a problem with that, but vanilla, on the other hand...

Well what the fuk.
Alright then. Just something else I overlooked.

Doesn't want to convert as easily, so that's why I probably missed it. Fun.

Out of curiosity, in E4M3, when are the two monsters waiting in the south-western teleporter room supposed to activate and teleport in?

 

I finished the map without killing those two because they would not leave the teleporter room.

I'd have to look. I'll do that in a bit. Only two I can think of that do are the flame monsters that teleport in the yellow key room. Never had a problem with them, but maybe they're not activating for you for some reason.

Thanks! While you are there, can you answer me the following question?

 

Spoiler

How do I get the two unofficial secrets in E4M4, i.e. the Blessing of the Gods and the secret cave with items as well as a Dopefish in a fishbowl?

Spoiler

When you teleport from the area with the flashing pit, turn around. There is a secret rock switch. The fishbowl is another switch in the room with the beds. A small blue switch.

Tested the recent update; now runs properly in the DOS version as a PWAD. We're getting there! :D

Yeah, my guess is it was that one .wav sound file holding it back then.

Slade doesn't show a different icon for sound file type, so I never noticed it. 

Although I seem to remember the original exe getting wav support in one of the releases. 1.9 or 1.666. Guess not.

Nah, I don't think it ever did, it strictly uses the "Doom format" sound stuff.

Just finished EP2, damn this game is HARD, but I love it so much.

 

Found something that looks like a missing texture, in E2M6 I think? Or E2M5?

Also damn that hqx setting looks uggo af and it always turns on when I catch the screenshot, should probably rebind the Steam screenshot key to something different

Hm. Thanks for the heads-up. I'll see if I can track that down. It likely is a missing texture.

Edit: Yeah, missing texture. compblue. it was using the same patch as dvrock9, so in some maps it got used instead of dvrock9, so I gotta find and switch them out. Hopefully that's the last one.

Hopefully this automap screenshot will be more helpful than whatever I tried to show in the post above:

I got it. Fixed. Or will be when I upload the hopefully last patched version of rekkr.

Sorry for bothering you, but should this bit of background look like that?
