Good weapon mods for PRBoom?

Recommended Posts

I've been kinda bored playing with Gz Doom and Zandronum, so I've moved over to PRBoom. First thing I want to do is get some good weapon replacements. Unfortunately, I am unable to find any, so I decided to ask you guys.

What I'm hearing is "I'm kinda bored with the modern, fully customizeable source port for Doom, so I went to one that's barely more than vanilla. Any good mods for it?"

 

Good luck!

Try the stuff that comes with MBF, in the examples folder.

"Weapons mods" aren't really something that exists much outside of the *ZDoom world. It's possible you might find some stuff in idgames, but in general it's more a case of "find some TCs to play that also replace the weapons". You might give Twilight Warrior a try, for example.

There are weapon mods for 3DGE too. (In fact, there were EDGE weapon mods before there were ZDoom weapon mods.)

INSANED2.DEH, it's somewhere in the depths of /combos. Probably the pinnacle of DeHackEd modding.

when I'm bored of the usual doom weapons, I play with any from the 299 WEAPONS FOR DOOM" by Daniel. But I'm not sure it works with Prboom.

Might I ask why you're specifically bored with the source port? Choosing PRBoom+, at least in the current day, has more to do with its combination of vanilla/boom compatibility and modern enhancements that don't affect gameplay (e.g., higher resolutions, HUD customization, demo manipulation, etc). More to the point, just about anything you can run in PrBoom+ should also run in GZDoom or Zandronum.

 

I'd start by identifying what you find go no longer interesting about your current setup and see if you can find the answer in the same source port. As has been said, if you really care about being able to customize the weapons of the game, there are very few alternatives when it comes to switching ports. Doomsday has some novel add-ons which include weapon models: they're still the exact same weapons game-wise, so it only helps if you want reskins.

It's just something about GZ Doom that feels underwhelming. Plus, with the recent 2.3 update the performance became horrid. Most of the stuff I see for GZ Doom are BD addons, Modern guns in Doom and D4 emulation. I'm looking for atleast skins that don't change gameplay.

Have you tried not using weapon mods at all?

 

 

That said, for the "most of the stuff is Brutal Doom and D4" thing... Here are some pointers.

prboom (and glboom if you have a dedicated gfx card) will definitely give you better performance than GZDoom, so that's a reason to switch.

2 words: Black Ops

 

A smooth weapons mod for any port with MBF sprite support (IIRC). Unfortunately I am unable to copy paste the link here because the browser sucks.
