    More effects

    Hello. I've been doing some experiments to give mappers more visual effect possibilities to put in their wads, to put it simply, that actually use HOMs to the mapper's advantage. So far, two effects I achieved were 1. a much simpler way to make a shadowcasting lightbox. What I mean is, the ceiling light level oscillates while the floor remains at a constant light level, using HOMs, and 2. (based on the previous one) a crate which casts a shadow on the floor, but not the ceiling. Both are, aforementioned, quite easy to achieve. It's similar to Ultimate Doomer's simulated "instant spawning monsters" (seen in Fragport and Shadowcaster) effect; lowering the floor (or raising the ceiling) of a sector below/above the player's eyeseight, while the HOM produced covers up the "true floor/true ceiling" and produces a fake floor/ceiling. I'm twiddling around with different prototype effects as I type this, so more to come.
  2. I just recently discovered that ZDoom can be "force-fed" different filetypes, as long as the basic WAD data structures remain intact. For example, you could convert a wad with no nodes structures in it to a .WTF or .OMG file or whatever and run it in ZDoom with absolutely no problems, and it will still build nodes for you upon loading the map/maps. Interesting...Eh?

    Heh, you couldn't finish it? I finished it in 5:39.

    Wintex

    Try XWE by Csabo. It's alot easier- 1. Goto Entry->New. Name the new entry "P_START" or "PP_START." Both work fine. 2. Goto Entry->Load, and select the patch(es) you want to load. They will be automatically converted into patches. Then, add a new entry (see above) called P_END or PP_END. As before, both work. 6. Right click on each patch and click on "Add to Texture..." It will make a TEXTURE1 lump and a PNAMES lump containing all patches and textures from Doom2. To make a textures patch for Doom1 I think you have to replace existing patches without adding a Texture1 lump...

    There's probably some really insane way you could do this with ZDoom, involving KEYCONF, hudmessages, and changing the source for dynamic wad-loading upon execution. Or pack it up all into a single wad and divide it into episodes using MAPINFO.

    ZDoom with different filetypes

    ...I have to admit, you got me there.

    ZDoom with different filetypes

    Then please enlighten me as to how .WAD and .TXT are almost entirely different.

    ZDoom with different filetypes

    I've heard of the 2-byte limit on everything- ZDoom solved most of it, except for 64k sidedefs (or was it linedefs? INS). Maybe this could be a step towards solving the 64k linedefs/sidedefs problem. I mean, they say that the .WAD extension can't handle anything over 2-byte signed (or in ZDoom's case, unsigned) values for all the self-imposed limits. And another thing somewhat related to this is that it can read DoomEd4 files (the version that builds wads almost entirely different from regular ones), so this little "hole" in ZDoom could help along the solution to that problem. And what I mean by "entirely different from regular ones," I meant that it builds nodes using different structures than the normal Doom(2) wads seen around today; such as TAG DESC (segment triggers stored in here instead of in linedefs and sectors IIRC), THINGS P (not so sure about this one, doesn't read correctly in XWE), SEGS EFS (also doesn't read properly), and NODES RS. Do you get what I'm saying here?

    More effects

    I'm not talking about that kind of splitting doors, I'm talking about a door where the top will go straight up and the bottom will go straight down, and then they will close back almost perfectly (except the slight delay between the bottom stopping and the top reaching the bottom height).

    More effects

    EDIT: Let me rephrase that... Do you know of any wads out there that already have splitting doors (not like the ones in Aliens TC, I have one that works nearly perfectly).

    Best of '94

    What does everyone think are the "BEST WADS OF 1994"? I'm starting a collection to backup onto CDs and floppies, so I want everyone's opinion. And, just to let you know, there's gonna be a series of these threads leading up to "Best wads of all time," just to let you know. One of my favorites would be Crossing Acheron.

    In this case; What was the first *real* map, besides ORIGWAD.PWD?

    No, actually I haven't. Thanks.

    A map based on my kid dreams in '94

    Pretty nice map. If you were aiming to capture the feel that some of the "Best of 1994" wads gave us, you certainly did. Sure, it has some noobish mistakes such as open sectors and your basic "OMG-texture-misalignment" bugs, but other than that it's not bad for a noob map. If you were to practice mapping and refine your skills and redo this map, I'd bet it would be even cooler. A good wad.

    Action Doom

    Slopes, simpler scripting methods, HUBS, MAPINFO lumps, ALMOST ANY MUSIC FORMAT IS SUPPORTED, SUPPORT FOR FUCKING STRIFE, HEXEN AND HERETIC, and much better use of the word "Doom" altogether. Just to name a couple, you fucking dumbshit. You fail it, bastard. Bloodskull said: I wonder if their are any secrets/easter eggs involving doomworld jokes about members and threads? If anything, it would be about an impse or goatse riddled thread.

    2002: A Doom Odssey messing up

    You can probably get around that with DeHackEd. Try this: Rename the D_INTRO lump in the wad back to D_INTROA for online play. Then, find the place in DeHackEd or WhackEd where it says "INTROA" and "INTRO" iirc. Then, rename INTROA to INTRO and vice versa. That should work for both online play and single-player.
