    Thanks Nikita, shading is hard sometimes. Here is a version with rising bubbles: Here is also an Amulet of Warding (arm4). It has only one frame in Hexen so it's one frame here too:

    Possible quartz flask (ptn2*): Yeah do that, there is also a webchat, perhaps I should have mentioned that :) http://webchat.quakenet.org/
  3. Zauberer

    Well, sure if anyone want to do that be my guest. I'm a bit skeptic to Discord because it's exactly like IRC but with lots of emojis. There is also vendor lock-in and the risk of them mining/selling your data for strange purposes, but perhaps that's just me :)

    If you're into IRC I made a channel for project chat at QuakeNet.org called #zauberer. IRC is mostly dead these days but someone may see the topic and get interested in Zauberer that way. I'll drop by the channel occasionally when I'm online, not everyday though.

    Added a slight pulsating effect to the crystal vial. It's still red though, we should come up with a quartz flask of our own.
  6. Zauberer

    Thanks for those @Nikita_Sadkov , I hadn't seen them and they seem great. Nice @Cire! It's cool to see your sprites in action, even if they're just one-framers. I'll probably change the color of the crystal vial since it's easy to mix up with the quartz flask that is also red. Some day I'll learn how to make a PWAD myself to test stuff out.

    Here's my idea of a Disc of Repulsion... Now for the tricky part of animating it. Cyan background and BMP-format is in the works :)
  8. Zauberer

    Well, my IWAD making skills are seriously lacking but I'll see if can squeeze out some more graphics for one. The fact that @Nikita_Sadkov made a texture brought my hopes up for the project. I'll just file the PWAD to my personal collection and get cracking with the graphics :) And please do continue PWAD-ing... True that.

    Hey @Cire, how come the zaub.wad file was removed from the repo? I kind of liked that one :)
  10. Zauberer

    A question, in the zauberer-iwad Readme you write that you want cyan to be RGB 0, 255, 255. The closest color to this in the Hexen palette is color index #223 which is 80, 236, 252. Do you want me to convert to 24-bit BMP format and replace the cyan I used (color index #223)? I used 8-bit graphics, 256 colors.
  11. Zauberer

    Sure, I'll look at it tonight. But I'll hold off on the sound since we don't know what to call that one yet.
  12. Zauberer

    Ok I got sidetracked so I'll just push what we have now :) Made a pull request to CireG's repo, the three sprites are identical and I don't know what to call the pickup sound yet.
  13. Zauberer

    Ok, check it now (previous page). I redid it using the Hexen palette. I'll wait with the commit to Github though, I might have another one coming.
  14. Zauberer

    Sure thing, but where do I find the palette? The sprites in the Zauberer repo have palettes that differ quite a bit. I can with some effort make it "from scratch" using the values listed here: https://zdoom.org/wiki/Palette . The Hexen and Doom palettes seem to use different indexes for cyan though. Perhaps it doesn't matter that much at this early stage?
  15. Zauberer

    Another thing, here is a little doodle that perhaps can be of use: Larger: I thought it could be a possible crystal vial replacement. I made it with the Blasphemer palette but they already have a crystal vial (actually bottle). I can fork the Github-repo and add it if it's of any use.
  16. Zauberer

    It reminds me most of the sound when one picks up a quartz flask.
  17. Zauberer

    Welcome. If you aske me I think that question is perhaps best to ask the original submitter. I'm still new and confused by the inner workings of Heretic/Hexen/whatever-id-product-derivative.
  18. Zauberer

    And done, we lost a lot of the treble this way but it's just a pickup sound :)
  19. Zauberer

    Ok, try it now. It's still playing at 44100 kHz though.
  20. Zauberer

    Converted it, assuming 16-bit 8-bit mono is the format to use. http://eltopo.dromland.se/sound/ui-ack35-pickup.wav You should back it up somewhere else though, I might not keep that webspace forever.
  21. Blasphemer discussion

    Great, there's a lot of content now. I'll have to try the new build out. Most of the stuff is missing from the Github repo, could someone please tell me a bit about the reasoning behind that? Are there any plans of making the repo and builds to be more in sync?
  22. Blasphemer discussion

    I created a pull request on Blasphemer's Github page, I changed endtext.lmp so that it shows the address to Github instead of Google Code. S/he should speak for her/himself but perhaps it's an euphemism for "writing"? :)
  23. Blasphemer discussion

    Yes, this would be a noble endeavor. It might succumb to the hands of deletion mob but it's Worth a shot. If only English was my first language, perhaps a future project. Hopefully someone beats me to it :) Sorry I was a bit sleep depraved when I wrote that, Blasphemer was mentioned on the Heretic Wikipedia page. Sadly, not anymore.
  24. Blasphemer discussion

    I found out about Blasphemer from Wikipedia, however it took quite a bit of searching to find the download links in this forum. In order for people to more easily find their way here I posted a reference at Wikipedia with a link to this thread. This was a mistake! First the whole sentence with the mention of Blasphemer was removed because "it sounds like an add", when I tried to put it back it was "not noteworthy enough" and "Doomworld is not a proper source". *Sigh* I imagine the sentence in question was there for a long time before I started improving it. Rather than engaging in a long editing war which I don't have time for, I opted to clone the article at a private wiki I quickly set up (http://rhizopedia.dromland.se/index.php?title=Heretic) I doubt much people will find it there though. Lesson learned: If it's not broken, don't fix it.
