Custom Maps & Contributions
The ZIP file includes a full editing tutorial that demonstrates how simple it is to create a complete new and custom map for Pogostick. Feel free to share your own maps and create maps for the official project as well (Skunk has already contributed one for the User Episode, time to compete :)) or do your own nice Player Classes for this project based on other heros from 2D games (e.g. Super Mario, Megaman, Hocus Pocus, etc.), for a reference on how to do this, check the C_KEEN.WAD player class in the PK3 :) Every little contribution is welcome :)

The reason I didn't continue mine was because of the whole using a button to turn 180 thing.

And like I said before I can't try this yet cause i'm at work :(

Wow, this is different. It takes a lot of getting used to. I ended up accidentally firing all of my bullets at the ground before I even noticed I wasn't aiming forward :shock: Having to aim on the z axis as well as move around on the X and Y axis make this a lot more difficult to play than an old NES platformer.

Anyway, I look forward to seeing where this goes.

Well, it's at least easier to play if you have AUTOAIM activated

This is awesome. Pure Awesome. Also, I played with Space as use, Z for jump, and Ctrl for Fire, so it was easy.

That's actually really, really well done. I didn't find the controls too awkward either. :)

Bug: After I took the shotgun, I switched to a pistol/fist (don't know which), and I couldn't switch back to the shotgun.

It took me a while to figure out where I could get the latest ZDoom SVN build to play this, but it's really cool! :D

This is awesome. Wow. I'm seriously impressed.

And in concordance with Skunk, a conversion of Action Doom to this would be great.

Just loaded Pogostick over Action Doom. It was glitchy but after I put in IDKFA and switched over to the chaingun the fun began. And boy was it fun! It was like playing Contra. The Hell Knight at the end gets replaced with an Alien Turret and it made me think about the Contra boss battles... if you can change the key bindings to whatever you want, you should switch them for boss battles and have the Marine turn 90 degrees!

And this entire experience makes me think about that Smash TV mod I wanted to make... hehe.

I need to fix the KEYCONF and add other weapons as well I think, let's see :)

Okay, v0.2 is online, what's new?

Added
Score System
Laser Pointers for all Weapons
New HUD
Titlepic and M_Doom (temp)

What I need help with
1. How can I display a ammo counter on my custom hud that automatically switches to the kind of ammo the player's weapon actually uses?
2. How can I make the laser pointer stay permanent? So that it doesn't disappear when I shoot a weapon?
