Zeldoom TC, early WIP

Postby LordTyphoon » Fri Aug 07, 2009 1:13 pm

Hello. I am LordTyphoon, also known as Mr.Eltee or Mr.Bojangles, but to most(all(everybody(the world(hello mom)))), not known at all. I don't really post often, if I even post at all.

However, today, I present you with my current brainchild:

The Zeldoom TC for ZDooM-based ports. Zeldoom aims to recreate the original NES game as much as possible, while being in a 3d FPS view. So far, only the dungeons (first and second quest) are aimed to be recreated, but I may end up doing the overworld aswell, perhaps recreating the entire game.

Currently, what is done is:

- Most graphics for Dungeon 1
- Placeholder logo/titlescreen
- Door & Key scripts and key inventory items
- Link player actor
- Stalfos enemy actor & graphics
- Damage invulnerability & knockback
- Dungeon entrance/end statue graphics
- Placeholder sword weapon

Spoiler:


I am posting this today to see how much interest people would have for this, or what reactions it can gather. I would also like to see if people would be willing to help later on, as I will probably seek help with some monster actors/graphic making. Some later Zelda monsters would be complicated to recreate in DooM, and well, not being an artist, I'd need help creating 8-bit hud sprites for the weapons.

Holy shit.

...Holy SHIT.

This is awesome. Could use some new (read: really, really old) sounds, though. :P

Holy shit, Eltee... this looks fantastic.


This is Darius, by the way. Small world, no?


And yes, I will definitely help if you're interested. I could do up some weapon sprites, if you'd like.

Sounds just haven't been changed yet, so yeah, it feels very awkward for now.

But man, I introduced this thread knowing nobody here knew me, but god damn Darius, you just had to prove me wrong.

Looks nice!

Here's some stuff to help:

1.) This page has all the old sound effects
2.) I believe you can include damage in brackets to do just that amount of damage.

I'm not an artist either, but editing graphics to resemble the NES sprites but in first person shouldn't be too painful. I'll give it a shot.

Thanks alot for those sounds. Gonna be useful soon.

Also, I made sure, for whatever attacks are done so far, to use actor actions that don't use/can disable the damage algorithm, so to do exact damage all the time
I'll keep that in mind, though. Could be useful for other weapons.


And spriting help is always appreciated, since yeah, some monsters are going to need some facial poses, since some were only topdown in the game

with the use of linedef trickery you could have the movable blocks be models and use acs to check if the baddies in the room have died before you move them.

of course that would restrict this to GZDoom only, but honestly i dont think that would be an issue.

there may be another way to simulate the movable blocks though...

still this looks pretty cool regardless.

Hm, I don't know how I'll tackle that. I'll keep that in mind, but I'd rather not have this be gzdoom-only.

Also, new WIP video up: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e6SUcQvbMV8

Now this is twice I've seen that Zelda dungeon used in a doom mod. Related?

This looks pretty cool. I'd recommend getting music that loops better though.

Music will be fixed too, in time, this is all early work.

Also yeah, that makes sense Cutmanmike, since for testing purposes I'm keeping it to only the first dungeon so far. The only difference is I'm also planning out to do the rest.
