The Return of the Triad [TC] - some guy bumped this again

The Return of the Triad [TC] - some guy bumped this again

Post by el zee »

Hi

I started this project (about 5 years ago) - with 5hfifty, and kinda gave up in about 2008.

But now its going again, and in full swing, I've done heaps over the past couple of weeks, the latest ZDoom and Doombuilder 2 make stuff way easier than before.

Features:

Everything from the original ROTT such as:

Bad guys & GUNS from ROTT - heh obviously

Traps - fire traps and spikey things etc - some new ones

ZDoomish maps - some parts are really ROTT, all squarey, but i was going for that style ok?!

crazy ass things like floating platforms, trampolines, keys that you can get off tables then shoot the table, just like rott.

plus much more, there's a HUGE list of things.

so here are a few screenshots:

GADS!

Actually I've considered how to do sprite angling like that in ZDoom... My idea involved calculating the viewer's Pitch and Z relative to the object's, then modifying the object's appearance. That would only work correctly for one player though. :(

...Unless it was GZDoom and you used models instead...

It'd be fun to play a Rise of the Tiad-themed mod, so I'm watching this.

Yeah changing the actor's state using ACS is how i did it, you have to give each one a different TID for each height level though.

So it'll only look correct for one player at a time then... bummer...

I "ALMOST" didn't believe this at first... until I saw the hud, and the slopes. Looks like this'll be fun.

If you want, I can send you a Hand of God decorate file which I've used in AEoD. However, I'll also have to get DBT to sign off on it as well.

With Skulltag you could use a workaround of having the actual platform (the solid object on which you can walk) be invisible, but spawning clientside a nointeraction visible actor which is the one which changes state according to player height, using a clientside script. That was, it would work online correctly on ST.

EGADS! That looks bloody awesome. Although I haven't played Rise of the Triad, I must say that this looks really promising. Keep it up!

Ooh, looking nice. I quite like ROTT, even if I never finished it all the way (too much of a 100% git).

Oh yes. Very yes!

I've only played the demo of ROTT but I loved it. I'll be looking forward to this.

Wow!! Please don't give up on this! ROTT is freaking amazing. I might have actually liked it better than doom, if I had played ROTT before playing Doom...... LOL

I still have a sealed box copy of ROTT somewhere... Any bidders around? :D

This definitely screams RoTT, so I'm looking forward to this. I love the mix of classic RoTT elements with ZDoom features going on with the screenshots.

ROTT TC combined with Wolfenstein TC and Axis & Abaddon weapon mod, that would be amazing.
