Brutalized Doom & Doom 2 - Overkill RC1 out!

Postby Mr. Chris » Sun May 27, 2012 5:22 pm

This is a project that originally stemmed from a file I named "Doom Co-op" which started off way back in 2006 or 2007 with increased monster count more or less plus a few sound and minor graphics visuals but I eventually moved into actually adding new sections to both original sets of maps (except episode 4 of Doom) on top of making it suitable for single and co-op multiplayer.

Now with the Brutal Doom mod flourishing, it made my original Doom Co-op very fun to play so what did I do? I further increased difficulty of the maps once for the standard Brutalized set but a second time for Hardcore Brutalized. They are both playable with or without Brutal Doom but it increases difficulty twofold or threefold with the mod.

The biggest difference between Brutalized and Hardcore Brutalized is that I fixed up all the unclosed sector errors (courtesy of id that went unnoticed and were extremely minor) and some goof ups of my own (the E2M6 lowering floor HOM near start) when I jacked up the difficulty for Hardcore, on top of additional edits to two later Doom 2 levels.

The final major update will be the "Overkill Edition", which will throw as much as game can without killing your framerate. Don't expect this to be available for a while.

On a side note, playing this with vanilla Doom or Doom 2 is not recommended as there are some linedefs that utilize Boom style line actions so if one must play "pure", use a limit removing port such as Boom/prBoom as the bare minimum.

Note: This is not Brutal Doom exclusive! You can play this with any mod you desire or even without mods!

These are replacement levels only and is not an IWAD, so these cannot be used as an IWAD to circumvent the need for an IWAD to use PWADs.

I noticed a little stuttering like that while playing Evolution on various parts, most recently on Map 10 right after the door you open with the yellow card leading to an ambush with 2 mancubi and a bunch of other monsters. I'm running BD with your edited version, so I'll play around with the regular version to see if maybe it's an edit you did or just BD itself.

I didn't alter Evilution or Plutonia levels, and yea MAP10 has a lot of monsters and I've experienced slight slowdown in some parts initially.

Bug: First lift in Map02 doesn't work more than once. Just saw a bot go in, get himself killed, now the lift is back up and I can't go down.

Noted and fixed for RC2 and for standard Brutalized. Looks like I used W1 instead of WR for the linedef.

Loving This!!! I will be playing your version of Doom and Doom 2 from now on. I did locate a small mistake. On E3M1 the back of the exit door isn't correct. Keep up the good work If you remade Final Doom I would play those as well

I didn't even know I even messed with the alignments there, fixing it for both versions. I also appreciate the bug and glitch finding that I didn't notice. :)

No Problem! I am currently on E3M4 and haven't encountered any other issues.

Just finished Map04 with this + HD (unreleased update with a baron that can actually be killed).

Awesome stuff.

...not a huge fan of the E1M1 rear ambushes although it does make the squad wipeout in the backstory actually plausible. x_x

One little quasi-bug: one of the helmets in the blue key room is just barely on the blue key platform... from the looks of it I assume it should be on the floor instead?

EDIT: I seem somehow to have forgotten to mention how much I like the little transitional areas before you reach the familiar starting points on the maps. Some could use a bit more detail but being able to see the "outside" of the facility really brings a new sense of place that I've never had before playing the regular levels...

I tried to mimic a few of the outdoor areas seen on the map, such as E1M7.

Yeah I really like how you actually enter into the buildings for most of the maps instead of starting inside them, it's a nice little touch.

I never noticed that, I'll patch that up now.

I'll toss up 1.02 and RC2 up after sufficient time passes for folks to play through and report any mistakes I may have made.

Where can I find the version of Brutal Doom your using in the video demonstrating your brutalized MAP01? Is it a development version of 0.16?

Looks really nice, if you could toss a link I'd greatly appreciate it.

You can find it by using Skulltag's IDE. Recently I've seen some servers playing with brutaldoom016test. wad's (01, 02, 03...). Before playing, IDE will download wad first, and then you can play... although, I guess only on Skulltag (did not try ZDoom/GZDoom yet)...

Mr. Chris, found one nasty thing. To be precise - a yellow door on E2M4, from the side with yellow keycard hall (with crusher). If player waits for it to close, and then tries to open it again - it won't open. At all. Only from the other side...
