    I wrapped up the basic structure of the bedroom as well: http://www.femlob.com/temp/tears-h.png Which, in turn, wraps up the basic structure of the apartment. Plenty of rooms still need dressing and other fluff, but it's tricky to get it just right without overdoing it. Off to the first area of the map.

    They might be persuaded to become animated in the apartment, too. =P PRIMEVAL, very nice shot.

    It's a tad crowded, but that's what homes tend to be like. It matters little, in any case: the player will never have to fight anything in this map, so there's no danger of the architecture getting in the way of gameplay. And horror stuff, huh? Like creepy messages... http://www.femlob.com/temp/tears-e.png ... and even creepier paintings inside a walk-in closet... http://www.femlob.com/temp/tears-f.png ... or weird portals appearing inside kitchen cabinets? Stuff like that? http://www.femlob.com/temp/tears-g.png Nah, that couldn't be it. =P

    I'm working with GZDoom 1.7.0 (r1505 from the DRD SVN). Not sure if it'll work in anything else; haven't tested that yet.

    A few shots of an apartment I'm working on. The screenshots are a little brighter than what it looks like in-game, but not by much. Living room. There's so much 3D in that television cabinet that half the dots on a one-by-one grid have a vertices on them. Pain in the ass, but I think the result is worth it. http://www.femlob.com/temp/tears-b.png Kitchen. It's a little hard to see, but there's a stove at the end. It's also a tad empty, but I haven't gotten around to sprucing it up yet. http://www.femlob.com/temp/tears-c.png Bathroom. The 3D door handle is causing some lighting issues, but I haven't been able to fix it without breaking everything else. Not sure it's important enough to spend another couple of days on, anyway. The little bit of PANEL you see on the left is part of a sliding door. http://www.femlob.com/temp/tears-a.png Balcony and dining table. It's hard to see, but there's glass in the door and windows; or actually, a semi-transparent 3D sector. The buildings in the background are pitch-black regardless of lighting level, as they're supposed to be nothing but silhouettes. http://www.femlob.com/temp/tears-d.png Critique is welcome.

    Can someone help me with U/ZSDF?

    Hi, I'm trying to figure out how to get USDF and/or ZSDF working. I've been wrestling with the wiki for a while, but I just can't seem to get it to work. I've added a new actor to DECORATE and supplied it with a ConversationID (which should allow me to use both USDF and ZSDF); I've also added a DIALOGUE lump to my .pk3 with the nescessary dialogue. I've got said new actor in my map, tagged to begin a conversation when the player presses use. Except nothing happens. I've managed to get it to work once by compiling the script with USDC, but I'd rather not do that; flat text is a lot easier to work with. What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks! I sent you a PM.

    Can someone help me with U/ZSDF?

    Ah, okay. I could upload it to my site so you can download it. Let me know if you want to, and I'll drop a link.

    Can someone help me with U/ZSDF?

    I have to say that this stuff is pretty damn tricky: whenever it doesn't work, there's essentially zero feedback on why it doesn't work. Even though I've managed to get one method to work, I still have some more questions - for future reference: - I'm using UDMF. Why does DIALOGxx work, while DIALOGUE doesn't? Both files have the exact same content. - Why can DIALOGxx be dumped anywhere in the .wad, while DIALOGUE has to go specifically between TEXTMAP and ENDMAP? Again, both files have the exact same content. - What do I have to do to get DB2 (or GZDB) to display my dialogues in the Dialogue Editor? Compressed, uncompressed, DIALOGxx, DIALOGUE - it doesn't matter, I can't get the Builder to read any of them. Additionally, according to the USDF specs, conversation pages are numbered automatically starting from 0. If I have two pages in a conversation, and use "link = 1" on the first page, the game will lock up when I try to advance the conversation; but if I use "link = 2", it works as intended. Either it skips page 1, or the pages are numbered automatically starting from 1; the latter seems more likely.

    Thanks Gez! Now it finally looks and works the way I want it to. =D

    Can someone help me with U/ZSDF?

    That's okay. But if you have time for it later, I'd love to see it.
  12. Luke Gevaerts

    Can someone help me with U/ZSDF?

    Okay, that did the trick. =D Thanks for taking the time to create a tutorial! Two more questions: - Is there a way to get rid of the default "See you!" response? My "dialogue" is actually supposed to be a menu that opens when you interact with the front door, and saying "See you!" to the front door is... Odd. - Is there a way to modify the sound that plays when you initiate conversation? (Got it, override DSRADIO)
  13. Luke Gevaerts

    Can someone help me with U/ZSDF?

    Well, still nothing. Clicking on "Open Dialogue Editor" in DB2 shows a blank list, even though I think the DIALOGUE lump is in the right place now (under SCRIPTS and above ENDMAP in the .wad). It would be immensely helpful if I could download a sample .wad somewhere that has a working dialogue example...
  14. Luke Gevaerts

    Can someone help me with U/ZSDF?

    Ah, so it has to be inside the .wad? That explains. I'll go try that, and see what happens.

    End-Game Monster Cast Sequence

    Hi all. Is it possible to modify the end-game monster cast sequence (the post-Map 30 thing) - more to the point, is it possible to add monsters to the cycle? If so, where might that data be housed? Thanks!

    Great, thanks! *reads*

    Oh, my bad. I'm using GZDOOM.

    First WAD you have ever played?

    @Memfis, Maes: Yeah, that's the one. =) I should take a look at it again some time; see if it's still as impressive as I remember it to be.
  19. Luke Gevaerts

    First WAD you have ever played?

    I can't, for the life of me, remember the name of the first pwad I ever played. Some things about it I do remember: - I played it back when I still used WadEd 1.83 on a 98 SE machine; - One of the maps was a gigantic castle that resulted in saving issues on UV; - One of the maps had a dining area called "Chez Baron", or something like that, where the tables were loaded with gibs; - One of the maps had an area blocked by three green marble plates with text on 'em, and you had to find all three keys lower the plates and proceed; - I think it was one of those pre-source-port wads that tried to tell a story using textures instead of scripting (which didn't exist back then); - I think I got it from /idgames, or wherever it was housed at that point in time.

    Switch behavior on 3D sectors?

    Thanks, Enjay. Poking through that .wad now.

    Switch behavior on 3D sectors?

    Hi all. Situation: regular sector with switch effect applied to one of its linedefs. 3D sector with switch texture superimposed on regular sector at run-time (and in DB2, all hail Visual Mode plugin). Predictable result: switch functions, but no texture change and/or switch sound. Crowd rages. ACS Workaround: use SetLineTexture and ThingSound to simulate switch being pressed. Crowd cheers. It works, of course, but it seems a little hackish. Is there a "legitimate" way to get the beforementioned 3D sector to play nice? It doesn't seem possible, but I just want to make sure. Thanks!

    Switch behavior on 3D sectors?

    Well, here's four screenshots. The metal thing circled red is the sector that'll get lowered by the switch; feel free to ignore that. http://www.femlob.com/temp/switch-db2-a.jpg (floating inside some map elements, hence the weird view) http://www.femlob.com/temp/switch-db2-b.jpg (grid view; the switch is the small rectangle near the Visual Mode Camera thing) http://www.femlob.com/temp/switch-gzdoom-a.jpg (in-game) http://www.femlob.com/temp/switch-gzdoom-b.jpg (in-game, taken from the bottom of the poison basin to try and visualize the whole 3D thing) The switch, as stated, is just a regular sector with the switch effect applied to a linedef; the 3D sector is placed on top of it. And under it. Actually, there's a lot of 3D shit going on there. Anyway.

    Switch behavior on 3D sectors?

    UDMF-only, I guess? Just plopping down some textures didn't seem to do anything. Edit: Actually, assigning flag 16 and an upper texture made the entire 3D sector disappear. I'm supposed to assign it to the control sector, right? *puzzled look* Actually, the switch effect is completely seperate from the 3D floor - which is obviously why the 3D floor doesn't respond to me flipping the switch. I fixed that with some ACS stuff, but it kind of made me feel like I was re-inventing the wheel. @Pottus: Yeah, I already had a Z check in place. Of course, I had to screw up first before that came to mind - but you live, you learn.
  24. Hi, I'm repeatedly getting the following error when I try to join a sector with or merge a sector into a rather large group of other sectors: D3DERR_INVALIDCALL: Invalid call (-2005530516)Since it only happens on this particular map, I'm assuming there's something wrong with the map rather than the program. However, I'd like to rule out any possible bugs before I start taking it apart (the map, that is, not the program). The debug output: ************** Tekst van uitzondering ************** SlimDX.Direct3D9.Direct3D9Exception: D3DERR_INVALIDCALL: Invalid call (-2005530516) bij SlimDX.Result.Throw[T](Object dataKey, Object dataValue) bij SlimDX.Result.Record[T](Int32 hr, Boolean failed, Object dataKey, Object dataValue) bij SlimDX.Direct3D9.VertexBuffer..ctor(Device device, Int32 sizeInBytes, Usage usage, VertexFormat format, Pool pool) bij CodeImp.DoomBuilder.Rendering.SurfaceManager.EnsureFreeBufferSpace(SurfaceBufferSet set, Int32 freeentries) bij CodeImp.DoomBuilder.Rendering.SurfaceManager.AllocateBuffers() bij CodeImp.DoomBuilder.Map.MapSet.Update(Boolean dolines, Boolean dosectors) bij CodeImp.DoomBuilder.Map.MapSet.Update() bij CodeImp.DoomBuilder.BuilderModes.SectorsMode.JoinMergeSectors(Boolean removelines) bij CodeImp.DoomBuilder.BuilderModes.SectorsMode.MergeSectors() bij CodeImp.DoomBuilder.Actions.Action.Begin() bij CodeImp.DoomBuilder.Actions.ActionManager.BeginActionByKey(Int32 key, Boolean repeated) bij CodeImp.DoomBuilder.Actions.ActionManager.KeyPressed(Int32 key) bij CodeImp.DoomBuilder.Windows.MainForm.MainForm_KeyDown(Object sender, KeyEventArgs e) bij System.Windows.Forms.Control.OnKeyDown(KeyEventArgs e) bij System.Windows.Forms.Control.ProcessKeyEventArgs(Message& m) bij System.Windows.Forms.Form.ProcessKeyPreview(Message& m) bij System.Windows.Forms.Control.ProcessKeyMessage(Message& m) bij System.Windows.Forms.Control.WmKeyChar(Message& m) bij System.Windows.Forms.Control.WndProc(Message& m) bij System.Windows.Forms.ScrollableControl.WndProc(Message& m) bij System.Windows.Forms.Control.ControlNativeWindow.OnMessage(Message& m) bij System.Windows.Forms.Control.ControlNativeWindow.WndProc(Message& m) bij System.Windows.Forms.NativeWindow.Callback(IntPtr hWnd, Int32 msg, IntPtr wparam, IntPtr lparam) ************** Geladen assembly's ************** mscorlib Assembly-versie: 2.0.0.0 Win32-versie: 2.0.50727.3603 (GDR.050727-3600) CodeBase: file:///C:/Windows/Microsoft.NET/Framework/v2.0.50727/mscorlib.dll ---------------------------------------- Builder Assembly-versie: 2.0.1.1157 Win32-versie: 2.0.1.1157 CodeBase: file:///D:/Games/DOOM%20Collector's%20Edition/Doom%20Builder%202/Builder.exe ---------------------------------------- System Assembly-versie: 2.0.0.0 Win32-versie: 2.0.50727.3053 (netfxsp.050727-3000) CodeBase: file:///C:/Windows/assembly/GAC_MSIL/System/2.0.0.0__b77a5c561934e089/System.dll ---------------------------------------- System.Windows.Forms Assembly-versie: 2.0.0.0 Win32-versie: 2.0.50727.3053 (netfxsp.050727-3000) CodeBase: file:///C:/Windows/assembly/GAC_MSIL/System.Windows.Forms/2.0.0.0__b77a5c561934e089/System.Windows.Forms.dll ---------------------------------------- System.Drawing Assembly-versie: 2.0.0.0 Win32-versie: 2.0.50727.3053 (netfxsp.050727-3000) CodeBase: file:///C:/Windows/assembly/GAC_MSIL/System.Drawing/2.0.0.0__b03f5f7f11d50a3a/System.Drawing.dll ---------------------------------------- SlimDX Assembly-versie: 2.0.7.41 Win32-versie: CodeBase: file:///C:/Windows/assembly/GAC_32/SlimDX/2.0.7.41__b1b0c32fd1ffe4f9/SlimDX.dll ---------------------------------------- msvcm80 Assembly-versie: 8.0.50727.4053 Win32-versie: 8.00.50727.4053 CodeBase: file:///C:/Windows/WinSxS/x86_microsoft.vc80.crt_1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b_8.0.50727.4053_none_d08d7da0442a985d/msvcm80.dll ---------------------------------------- System.Windows.Forms.resources Assembly-versie: 2.0.0.0 Win32-versie: 2.0.50727.3053 (netfxsp.050727-3000) CodeBase: file:///C:/Windows/assembly/GAC_MSIL/System.Windows.Forms.resources/2.0.0.0_nl_b77a5c561934e089/System.Windows.Forms.resources.dll ---------------------------------------- BuilderModes Assembly-versie: 2.0.1.1157 Win32-versie: 2.0.1.1157 CodeBase: file:///D:/Games/DOOM%20Collector's%20Edition/Doom%20Builder%202/Plugins/BuilderModes.dll ---------------------------------------- System.Design Assembly-versie: 2.0.0.0 Win32-versie: 2.0.50727.3053 (netfxsp.050727-3000) CodeBase: file:///C:/Windows/assembly/GAC_MSIL/System.Design/2.0.0.0__b03f5f7f11d50a3a/System.Design.dll ---------------------------------------- mscorlib.resources Assembly-versie: 2.0.0.0 Win32-versie: 2.0.50727.3603 (GDR.050727-3600) CodeBase: file:///C:/Windows/Microsoft.NET/Framework/v2.0.50727/mscorlib.dll ----------------------------------------There's bits and pieces of Dutch in there; blame my OS (Vista Home Premium).
