  1. Thanks for taking the time to write this out, but this is not really the info I was looking for. I mentioned the pipeline specifically because I think it'd be cool to be able to rework the textures and flats to look like the above screenshots. I've recently run into a lot of free time, so I feel like I could at least help out or pull it off in a few days. My biggest issue right now is on converting files in and out of Slade. I find it super unreliable to work with palettes. A while ago I ran into some issues trying to work out tranmaps, because it would apparentely lose data after importing and stuff would change formats. A proper tutorial could save me a lot of headache.
  2. You can use a monster to block it and make the sector a crusher, so when the player is near the end of the level or past this arena, have the crusher activate so the player can have 100% kills.
  3. Can you share the pipeline on how to do this? I get how it works, but not which tools to use/how/where/when in order to pull it off.
  4. I recall playing a puzzle-themed wad many years ago, in which you had to deal with certain situations with limited ammo. It was shared by some guy on Facebook, and as far as I remember, he only ever did two levels, so my guess is that there aren't many.

    How are you playing DOOM?

    Didn't know about this port. Thank you very much! Edit: sadly, it works the same as OG Doom and earlier iterations of PrBoom+. :(
  6. By "id" you mean current id or, y'know, both Johns, Sandy Petersen, American McGee, Tom Hall and the others?

    How are you playing DOOM?

    PrBoom+ on PC (with the keyboard) or on the Vita. I wish the PC build of PrBoom+ had better controller support, so I could use it here as well. Hate playing Doom with kb+m.
  8. Young people no longer buy houses, or cars, or have kids. We (they?)'d rather have a smartphone with Uber, live with their parents paying rent or helping out with some income, and that's that. Apparently Marx predicted that something like this could happen when you have wage slavery; when you can't consume what you're producing because it's too expensive. But I wouldn't know about any of that. So yeah, try to find something you can make money out of. Learn how to fix computers and go update some notebooks around the neighborhood or something. Our generation doesn't get to live the american dream.
  9. Nevermind, figured it out. After importing and converting to flat, you have to save; otherwise SLADE won't update it.
  10. Thanks, but none of these answer my question (and, in fact, one of those is just a link back to this very thread).
  11. I'm trying to import some PNGs I have here and make them into colormaps, like so: However, when I import, they are left as PNGs, which PrBoom+ can't handle, and I can't find a way to convert them to colormaps, only to flats or gfx. Importing files with the name "COLORMAP" doesn't appear to work either. I even tracked down an earlier version of Slade 3 which did it but when I try to load it up on newer Slade, the type becomes "unknown". How can I do this?
  12. The Ultimate Doom E1 - No E2 - Not much comes to mind. Maybe rebalance to make it a little harder overall. The final boss would be in a smaller map which would open up after you kill the Cyberdemon to expose more monsters, which would also need to be killed. E3 - Also rebalance to make a little harder. Probably put less monsters but make them more menacing. Final boss would also be, y'know, not killable by spamming the BFG from the other side of the map. E4 - Same as EP3. Put in less monsters, but make each more dangerous via placement. Doom 2 Either scrap or redo everything after Tricks and Traps. Most city levels need to go, or at least be made more linear. Abstract levels are mostly fine but sometimes they're just too big. The Chasm brings an interesting challenge which I think could be modernized, but that inescapable trap at the end is gone. Final boss elevator would become a teleporter puzzle of sorts with respawning enemies, so it'd become a game of managing ammo and health instead of the borefest it is. I don't care so much about Final Doom, but I'd also try to make Plutonia more interesting by trading the amount of monsters for more interesting placement to keep the challenge up. I can only have so much fun killing a Revenant for the 900th time.

    Tranmaps in Boom, how?

    Hi. I was reading up on this thread earlier today, where the author says the following: Well, everything was working up until this part. When I try to set it as the middle texture, it won't show up because it's a flat, and if I just try to set the name of the flat as the middle texture, PrBoom+ crashes on startup. How can I make this work?
  14. Back in '95 or so, it was amazing. The Super Shotgun was an absolute beast of a weapon that trivialized smaller mobs - perfect for a sequel after you endure through the original Doom carefully picking off hitscanners. As the game progressed, levels would get weirder and weirder, and it was awesome. It felt like the level designers were going like "let's see how you deal with this", completely ignoring realism in favor of fun challenges. The final boss was also a thrill. I'll never forget climbing that pillar for the last time, hearing literal hell breaking loose behind me, carefully aiming at the monster's face and holding my finger on the Ctrl key, waiting for the right moment. These days, though, it's a bit of a pain in the ass. The confusing level design of latter levels is more boring than challenging. Tightrope walking gets old fast. These days I usually replay Doom 2 until I reach The Pit, then quit.
  15. Uh, so the weirdest thing keeps happening. Whenever I get hit on the side, my game crashes with a signal 11. I downloaded those mods you mentioned, and while CouldUWouldU seems to work fine, 32HNPAIN crashes as soon as I try to start a new game with the same error. Very weird. EDIT: Yeah, I took out the mugshots and everything works fine. I put them back in and if I get shot from the sides, the game crashes soon after the mugshot turns to the marine looking sideways, even if I'm turning away from the enemy. EDIT 2: I removed my sprites and added in the ones from CouldUWouldU, and now everything works fine. So it's something with my sprites that's messing up the game. No idea what it could be, though.
