  1. I like id, but I still fear the sentence "Early access".
  2. Why not make a community project for a MegaWAD with all of the Doom 2 levels remade from memory?
  3. Hey, it works! Thanks! It was freaking Intel HD then :P
  4. I just rage quit out of Diablo.

     

    I tried to play it months ago, but I didn't find it fun enough to stick with it at the time, but I decided to give it a proper attempt now, and God FUCKING DAMMIT I'M PISSED.

     

    Oh, so you chose a melee-type character? Well, good luck against a boss with a giant sword that takes out a big chunk of your health with each blow, and that also gains health when hitting you!

     

    After dying (twice) trying to kill him, I decided to start over with an archer (I think it's called rogue?) thinking it'd be easier.

     

    OH, HOW WRONG I WAS!

     

    After cursing a lot about the god-awful controls (why is left click to attack and move?? I have a keyboard full of keys goddammit!!) I started bumping against the walls until I eventually got surrounded and killed. In the first room of the fucking game...

     

    Sigh

     

    I don't like this love/hate relationship I have with RPGs.

      Also maybe this particular style of rpg maybe just isn't for you

      I don't think I'd have the patience to grind, so yeah, it just isn't for me.

       

      One RPG that I played and I actually enjoyed was Summoner, mainly because it was more story driven and it was also pretty easy for the most part.

      Yeah, Diablo 1.

      Haha, this game is so easy and fun! You don't need that much grinding just to beat Diablo tbh. Just get the right quest items, take everything that has value to sell, staffs, armors, rings and amulets. If you want the easy way to get the best magic (blue) items... Wirt is the solution.

      I really don't like many RPGs. I've never had the patience for them, but I always found Diablo to be really enjoyable.

      Are you using your mana attacks often?

      Maybe just slow down the pacing in your head. It's a very quick rpg, but it's still an rpg.

      Diablo isn't a super grindy game, but you'll need to do it from time to time just to find great items.

      I was using the barbarian, so I didn't have any magic attacks.

  5. Do you have an AMD (integrated or dedicated) or Nvidia graphics card? Maybe the issue is with Intel HD.
  6. That sounds like Boom Power.
  7. After getting a bunch of scripting errors on startup, GZDoom will crash when trying to fire the pistol, and the crash report window will show up. IIRC ambient occlusion was used in the trailers, a function added in GZDoom 2.4.0, so I guess it doesn't like the computer I'm running this on? Does anyone have any idea why this happens?
  8. I've never owned a console. I usually think a LOT about what I'm writing before posting anything, deleting some things and rewriting, which sometimes takes a considerable amount of time. In fact, at one particular moment it took me half an hour to post something :P Also, sometimes I'll just forget about posting something completely because I don't think it's worth anyone's time. The problem is that every now and then I'll forget about actually using those "security measures" and I'll end up writing something stupid anyways. I always try to not bother anyone and be diplomatic in discussions, but if someone ends up hating me despite that, I don't care at all. I have a hard time talking about personal stuff. I actually thought about writing another fact about myself, but because of this I'm still discussing with myself whether or not I should talk about it. Oh well, if I decide to do so I'll post it later on.
  9. I guess it'd be the bottom of their sprite.
  10. Forgot about that. I read about that as well. I've never tried myself, but I do know that the "weak point" is in the base of the monster (i.e. feet).
  11. You know, using a RL in there may be even more dangerous than trying to punch the imps. I'd recommend you to keep a trusty shotgun in your bed instead.
  12. Rant about Alien Vendetta below.

     

    So I beat Alien Vendetta for the first time. I played it months ago but I got tired of it in MAP11 IIRC (I died and forgot to save).

     

    Anyways, I played it from start to finish now, in UV with pistol starts. My favorite map by far is MAP20. I really like the atmosphere it has, and I think everything is very well balanced, unlike MAP22, a map that I really disliked (which is ironic, considering they were made by the same author). It feels like a lot of work went into making the level look pretty and very little in playtesting, since I spent half the map without ammo. Oh yeah, I was drowning in cells, without any energy-based weapon to use them, because the author thought it'd be a good idea to put them in secret areas (Sorry about the rant, but I'm really pissed off about that map).

     

    At the end of the day, I enjoyed most of the WAD, although I wouldn't play it again. Some of the maps were too salughtery for my taste, but I have to admit some of them have a clever design that allows players to win without (too) much of an effort if they actually use common sense and don't rush into the horde like a brain-dead idiot (special mention to MAP26 on this).

      You mean map23, I think. It's balanced well enough for not using any of the secret resources (including the cell weapons). I happened to do a playthrough of it like that last year.

      Yep, the first cyber is meant not to be killed at first, but the map relies a lot on berserk action to actually be able to fight the second and third cyber. So yeah, unless you're a berserk master, specially with revenants, a you'll feel the lack of sufficient ammo.

    3. KVELLER

      KVELLER

      Yep, it was MAP23. Sorry about that.

       

      Even if it's balanced for heavy berserk usage, I don't think the creator did a good job on it. You can't just make a map and expect the player to know that they have to conserve ammo if they don't want to face two cyberdemons without anything to shoot at them.

      The two times I tried the map, I reached the third cyber without enough ammo, since RNG and blockmap and revenants played against me. No exaggerations. Not sure if the second cyber can be avoided for later, the third one is definitely a must-kill. I do agree the map could have had one or two more shell boxes so you don't have to start again due to the stuff I mentioned before (except revenants). But this is a personal perspective, not saying it's bullshit the way it is.

      I actually managed to survive without killing the third one. I died a few times before I could open the damn yellow key bars though.

  13. Yeah, I realized afterwards. I really should look around the wiki some more before asking. Hopefully this is all I'll ask for now. Thank you for all the help :)
  14. I'm starting to think I should've made a thread. How can you remove actor flags? I want to create a monster just like the Cyberdemon but without the +NORADIUSDMG flag.
  15. Thanks! That seems much closer to what I want to do.
