Why aren't you using a spotlight for the flashlight? That "spawn multiple spherical lights" way of doing it is not only dated, but looks incorrect physically, and most importantly is not performance-friendly because you are spamming multiple lights to replicate the functionality of 1 light source...

Is that so? If i ask you a question, how can you make a functional flashlight without spawning 'n spamming light projectiles? After all these years, i couldn't figure out how!

Someone hasn't been keeping up with the engine. ;) Spotlights were added into GZDoom almost a year ago...

EDIT: for a quick example, check this mod: viewtopic.php?f=43&t=59429

Because the flashlight in this video is part of Harder Event, not my mod.

EDIT: Also, darkdoomz and the flashlight thing both fail and abort when I try to run them. Dunno if it's my graphics card again or something else. Seems like one has to do with my gzdoom version, which I can't update til I get a new comp.

Oh!! Silly me. Although i visit the forum often, i wouldn't look up the engine news and such because i'm not a geeky nor maybe HORDCORE modder myself. But hey, thanks for the priceless information! I'm certain that some modders will find this helpful.

I've been wrestling with blender whole afternoon to get this rendered correctly. And it worked! Working in Blender is worse than any other software I ever tried so far, even surpasing CAD.
Hands, reload animation, ironsights and dual wielding comming tommorow.

EDIT: also should be corrected for DooM's weird pixel aspect ratio.

You're certainly an Undying Grand Champion of Doom Spriting. Definitely follows retrospective doom palette and it does not look bad at all!! Splendid work!

Out of interest, were you using 2.79 or 2.80? The latter has a lot of quality of life improvements from what I've seen, though i haven't got to deep into it yet.

Also, what did you need to do to fix the aspect ratio?

2.8 for the first time. I still don't know how to make normal maps I got with the model work properly.

That is comically and interestingly clever and yet so tactical. I just love it. And what's next? Mighty Putty?

:shock:

Does this use the colormap itself? I know GL started checking it to support the fullbright colors in the Strife palette, and I've often wondered if it could use the entire thing. (Even better, use a 24-bit map for finer control, and allow for 64/128/etc. levels.)

I love designing palettes & colormaps, and I'm sad sometimes that GL & SW32 are making them nigh-obsolete.
