  2. As someone who enjoy slaughterish setting, but isn't too deep in them to play something like slaugtherfest or swim with the wales (or even sunder, since i've only beaten 3 maps), i can say that they are interesting, often requiring a degree of mastery of the game that just isn't there for most doomers. People more capable than me already said what had to be said about it: not for everyone, often misunderstood.
  3. Very well then, i'll copy-paste the interesting bits: i tried to record a uv-max FDA, just to remember at the end that i didn't gave permissions to write to zdoom, so no fda. Died at the very beginning on my first attempt by jumping in the gasbag pit and accidentally blowing myself up; but after that i didn't even sweated it, the map is really easy, excedingly so by the excessive amount of health and armor (wich is pretty powerfull in heretic, giving 50% and 80% absorption each), i never EVER used a crystal flask (the portable medikit). This lead to my successive complaint: the artifact usage. No time bombs make cacowad sad. Generally the artifacts felt redundant, didn't needed the tomes nor the flasks nor the shadowsphere! cut out at least 2 silver shields, 20% to 40% of the vials and some ammo, then we are talking. the interconnectivity of the map is a beast, it was a pleasure to explore. Uv-max here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B5rMkuUj5h_gRmJhTEhMNXJnWjA something i failed to notice earlier: ammo isn't too far off balance, it maybe gives a bit too much tolerance for error, but since you didn't provided any bombs it is fine imho.
  4. nice to know, i have near zero experience with irc channels and even less on who is affiliated with who Edit: aaaand i'm apparently blind because it was very well written on the op, oh well
  5. Unfortunately i will be out town in the period this tournament will be probably held, but i'll try to hang around dmstuff whenever i have a break from studying. training dummys never get outdated
  6. Eheh, i realize that the best strategy is to do what you did in your video, unfortunately that was basically my first attempt since i died so early on, so i couldn't have known that. I might return to it and see if i can legit uv-max it. This project is going to be really good from the look of it!
  7. @Impiegot a couple of demos for you: demo1:https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B5rMkuUj5h_gdUkwc2VtaXVmRWM demo2:https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B5rMkuUj5h_gdjFaLXdCalBpdVk interesting map, good interpretation of an hub world, the green key area was my favourite. Now, i tried to take note during the demos as much as possible, but i have to make a couple of remarks: Yellow key area: Maulotaurus,Maulotaurus,Maulotaurus,Maulotaurus,Maulotaurus,Maulotaurus,Maulotaurus,Maulotaurus neat the way they can follow you to the hub if you just ignore them,unfortunately they just get stuck in there... personally i would allow more movement in the hub area at the cost of making a second access to the balcony above the tree key-locket doors, but that could potentially completely break the map, so it is up to you. (btw, holy moly thats a lot of cows, what is this, diablo?) Green key area: the wings are nice and allow to skip one entire area if used properly, i didn't but it was pretty cool nevertheless. Blue key area:i lost a bunch of time there, like a lot of time (you'll know what i mean if you watch the second demo), but it was the cooler looking area in the set (pardon the pun), just a bit empty, that is. Last area: I mean, the fight is really interesting, but i simply didn't had enough ammo to cut trought all that health (and i wasted my ring trying to clear out the buffalos)( see below in the weapon section). something unexpected happened (i died) and something even more unexpected happened (the boss died a couple of seconds later), so i cheated a little bit, but could not find an exit (i guess my death broke something? maybe a voodo dool?) Overall, nice to have 'secrets' if you reach an area with some other key in your inventory. Weapons and ammo: i found it pretty much balanced, i could even kill all the buffalos (even if i had some serious trouble reaching it, due to my usual playstyle). just one major gripe: the phoenix road, please, give it to me at least at the last fight witout it being a secret weapon... i realize that probably you can find it really early (probably even before the crossbow), but someone is gonna miss it and is going to be very sad looking at all that ammo he/she can't use. Artifacts: wasn't really incentivized to use bombs, since i mostly found them in areas where i didn't needed them (hello blue key area), but otherwise i always found an use for them, so this is a plus in my book. Bugs: you still have some flats on walls, it shouldn't be an issue since we are fundamentally aiming at zdoom (and those fancy voodo dools scripting would not work anyway in vanilla without some additional work in them). I don't know what happened at the end, probably is just the fact i died, but i need some rest from this journey.
  8. GG folks, i wasn't able to watch the stream as history unfloded due to some really shitty internet issues, but i'm cathing up watching cptclaver steam
  9. Welp, i don goofed then. Once i'm home i'll try to see what went wrong EDIT: i am a moron, i linked you the wrong demo, my apologies. This is the correct one https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B5rMkuUj5h_ga0czZHVXa0htRFU
  10. @BeeWen Excellent map! here's my fda:https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B5rMkuUj5h_gRDBFSlYxZWNpTmM It was a blast to explore, i had a good time: maybe there are a little too much ammo and quartz flasks,i was flooding with both of those until the last fight, i'll try to providesome more feedback a bit later.
  11. I ain't a good deathmacher, but i can be a decent target dummy, let me se if i can find you. Zandronum i suppose?
  12. @riderr3 I posted a demo and some feedback on your discord channel, should i also post it here?
  13. @Skeletonpatch no, there should be no problem
