    Is Doom Builder 2 Development Discontinued?

    The term I believe is "lurking". I don't read everything unless tagged, actually pretty much only that. DB2 development is indeed discontinued. If I wanted to work on it, I would probably rewrite it again because I would (again) design the internal workings completely different. But this time there wouldn't be any significant new features from a user perspective, so it's not worth it. The forks are doing a good job of adding the sourceport-specific features (and also cluttering the user interface a lot) so everyone is happy.

    The worst part of editing in Vanilla

    For plain Doom Builder 2 (not sure about any of the forks) there is a Visplane Explorer plugin which shows the visplane heatmap inside the editor with 1 click on a button (or a key which you can map). See http://doombuilder.com/index.php?p=plugins The plugin might not work on DB2 forks due to their changes though.
  3. This guy makes a bunch of claims about how he invented a clean power source and how it also has "anti-gravity" effects as well. He says his invention was taken away from him (long story) and he is having a hard time putting a new one together. April this year he made a mockup and published videos of it, but to me it just looks like an electric motor and doesn't prove it to be a power source (because you have to feed it electricity in the electromagnets in order to make it run) but my understanding of physics is limited. Anyway there is a whole lot to read about it on the internet, but I am still wondering if this is actually possible or that it is just a big elaborate hoax.

  4. Absolute Best Evah: Doom 1 Pretty much everything about this game is great and well executed. Especially for it's time. Setting, progress, atmosphere, monsters (although Doom 2 makes a few good monster additions), items and gameplay. Even the graphics, as far as they could go in 1993. Second Best: Doom 2 Everything that Doom 1 has plus some good monster additions. I like the double barrel shotgun too, although it is a bit overpowered. Why 2nd place then? The level design and setting does less for me. The whole Doom 1-going-to-mars-then-going-to-hell setting was much more interesting to me than the Doom 2-monsters-have-invaded-earth setting. Third place: TNT, Evilution, other megawads Some mods are just a good bit of fun. OK-ish: Doom '16 It's not really what Doom 1 was, but I think it's not a bad attempt at a remake. Just too few monsters at the same time and increasing the difficulty just makes the monsters do more damage. That was a major disappointment. Absolute crap: Doom 3, Doom 64, freedoom These are just not Doom in my opinion. They don't look the same, don't feel the same or have completely different gameplay.
  5. Here is why plugins are cool! I could post this in the recent Deepsea news thread, but I'm not that cruel. I am working on a (G)ZDoom Editing Plugin for Doom Builder 2 which lets you edit some of the (G)ZDoom features directly in the editor (slopes, 3D floors, colored lighting, scaled/rotated/panned textures and flats and more) and the first bunch of features are already in. I am releasing this as BETA to see if I can get some feedback and bug reports. Please hold back on feature requests for now, I have a bunch of things that I'd still like to add, so don't worry about that. This video shows you what to do when you have the plugin and shows you a little bit of editing: DEMO VIDEO You can download the beta version here: http://svn.drdteam.org/doombuilder2/db2-r1412.zip You need to have the latest official version of Doom Builder 2 installed and just extract this over your Doom Builder 2 (overwrite it) and it will also give you the plugin. After following the instructions in the video, open the attached demo WAD (attached below) to see some of the UDMF features that the plugin has. gzdoomeditingdemo.zip
  6. Thanks. Links to the mentioned Doom Builder forks are on the website at the right top, by the way.
  7. Haha this is horrible to hear myself talking in slow english. I hope you find it a good show though.

    Visplane Explorer : new 0.80 version

    Thanks andrewj, and sorry to steal your topic for this (it was asked here so I thought I'd put something together). I have updated the plugin (again) with a fix that better shows the split areas. Because the area boundaries could overlap, it now also takes into account all the previous splits when drawing the visual representation of the "left" and "right" areas. http://www.doombuilder.com/plugins/nodesviewer.zip

    Visplane Explorer : new 0.80 version

    Fixed and uploaded, try downloading the plugin again. I also changed the display rendering a bit to increase performance (it was very poor for large maps).

    Visplane Explorer : new 0.80 version

    Here is a plugin that allows you to see subsectors, segs and splits (nodes) that the nodebuilder created: http://www.doombuilder.com/plugins/nodesviewer.zip Source code for the plugin is in the Doom Builder repository, or here.

    Editing/MP tools links on Doomworld

    Or my nose, because it was maintained by me. I say "was" because it is a daunting task to keep track of all the news and updating the forever changing direct download links and version numbers and due to my involvement in other projects, these resource links didn't get the attention they deserve. I suggest getting rid of version numbers and direct download links. Link to the website of the 'product' where it can be downloaded instead. That way the list doesn't need to be updated for every new version of anything. This of course doesn't remove broken links automatically, so a list of those would still be useful ;)

    Wow that website is RED! I think I'm seeing everything else in cyan now. But still a very nice tool exl!

    Gzdoom Builder released!

    To be frank, this thread does a better job showing you what GZDoom Builder is (even though it also has only 1 screenshot) http://forum.zdoom.org/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=32392 It is also the official thread maintained by MaxED, the maker of the GZDoom Builder branch.
  15. See this video that actually shows a bit of our game! Don't forget to set the quality to HD (720p). We are still in an early phase of our project (pre-alpha) which means we have a very long way to go, but a video like this is always good to show other people what we have and to align new team members in the right direction. Also Rex Claussen is on the team to do some level design. The maps in the video are missing a lot of detail (some walls are even solid color) have a lot of texture misalignments and placeholder materials. But this video is just to give an impression of our work so far. Also there is no in-game sound or music yet. Music excerpt borrowed from Total Recall and solely intended to give an impression. This will all be done right later on. Oh and the maps are made with a modified Doom Builder ;) This game is on IndieDB here http://www.indiedb.com/games/rampagem and the website is http://www.rampagem.com/

    My other project now has a demo video

    But, this isn't something we need to make money off. Also, on a mobile device we are much more limited (memory, performance, graphical effects, etc).

    No, this is PC only.

    My other project now has a demo video

    Hellbent was really a school project, but fun and educational nonetheless. I could have made a proper game out of it maybe, but at the time didn't have knowledge, experience and skill set to make it anything like Rampage M. I have played both, but just to get a sense of what game it is, I don't know them is detail to tell you exactly what the differences are. They are the same genre, same type of game, but we are just going to do it the way we would like to see it, not copying any of these. And if some things happen to be the same then so be it, but chances that the whole game will be identical to any other are slim.

    My other project now has a demo video

    Yes, I'm definitely still going to try shadows for the flashlight. But these are one of the most costly things to do (performance wise) so I'm not entire sure yet if it will be in there.

    My other project now has a demo video

    No there won't be modding features (not officially though). I have considered it, but it already takes us a _lot_ of time to make this game (since most of us work fulltime and just work on this project in spare time) and making everything userfriendly enough to allow mods takes even more time. Maybe at some point it will go open source, or I will release just the level editor. We do keep an option open for expansion packs. If for some odd reason the game gets popular, we can at least make extras to play. PRIMEVAL: Thanks. We're really not ready to get into music just yet, but I'll save your links for us to check out later.

    Screenshot Hotkey(DB2)

    You can always make a screenshot of anything on your screen with the PRINTSCREEN key. Often next to Scrollock or Pause/Break key at the right top of your keyboard. It will save the whole screen image in memory (clipboard) so you must then paste it in an image editing program (such as MSPaint, Paint.NET, Photoshop or Photopaint, whatever you prefer) so that you can save it as a file. There is no shortcut for this in DB2 because no application needs special functionality for this. It is a system key and Windows will do this for you in every application that you're using.

    GZDoom Builder not previewing slopes?

    The GZDoom plugin is a bit outdated and no longer maintained. For those who are still using it, you may be interested in using MaxED's GZDoom Builder: http://forum.zdoom.org/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=32392

    Annoying Doombuilder Errors

    Doom Builder 1 wasn't made for Windows 7. You may get it to work, or partly, but that is no guarantee that it will work well. If you desperately want to stick to DB1, then I recommend you to try using it on Windows 98 or 2000 in a virtual machine (such as VirtualPC).

    DB2 Error

    No. Don't do this, because the SlimDX version on their website could be different from the one DB2 is using and that won't work.

    What does your username mean?

    I didn't say it is a registered trademark ;) But yea, you could see it as a brand name I guess.
