GBA Doom TC

Post by GFD »

I don't know why I made this. Download.
For a list of what this changes, see this or this for a general idea.
Deathmatch levels are MAP25-MAP32.
Created with the help of gbadhack.zip by Kaiser and gbadoom.exe by kgsws-CZ.

GBA Doom did not have fog, but allowed you to choose between "dynamic" or "static" lighting. The former is emulated in GZDoom by default, but cannot be emulated in ZDoom as I've found no way to disable the fog in the software renderer. Instead, ZDoom can emulate the "static" lighting option by using the provided COLORMAP.lmp.

Some things from the GBA port cannot be emulated in zdoom:

Cool! I have a real soft spot for the GBA games. I just wish I could play some wads on my real GBA games!

I've been doing the exact same thing but your attempt to emulate the GBA is a little bit better than mine from what I can see.

Also, If you want the Invulnerability sphere to have a blue screen, use this:

Code: Select all

Actor GBAInvulnerabilitySphere : InvulnerabilitySphere Replaces InvulnerabilitySphere
{
	+BRIGHT
	Powerup.Color "ABABFF", 0.2
}
(the 0.2 indicates translucency)

I was wanting to see someone do this after PSX Doom. Now we need 32X Doom, SNES Doom, Jaguar Doom, 3DO Doom, Saturn Doom, and whatever else Doom was officially ported to be ported to Zdoom, too. (And/or other source ports as well)

EDIT: Game breaking bug: On House of Pain, the door is a Blue Card Door, but the key is a Blue Skull, and it will not open. You have to noclip past this part. Same with Red Card Door/Red Skull Key.

Wow, get this: in the original GBA game, those doors say they require keycards and are marked as keycard types, but will also accept skull keys. GBA Doom really never ceases to amaze me.
Fixed that.

Fun fact, even DooM does that. DooM doesn't know the difference between a KeyCard and a SkullKey outside of the graphic. BooM later added the "This door can only be opened by a keycard". So the GBA behavior is correct to DooM v1.9 behavior.

Also a fun fact: GBA Doom will actually tell you if you need a skull key or a card key for a door, and actually re-purposes some Doom II specials explicitly as skull key door types.
So many weird things about that port.

SNES, Jag and 32x Doom have been done already.
