So Ozymandias81, are my old computer's specs the problem?

Here some easter eggs for those who finished the game! :)
Spoiler: 7 images

Also I've found some minor flaws (missing textures, 'flying' objects, etc.) so where it's the best place to post a report for them?



Spoiling the easter eggs kind of ruins their whole point of existing, don't you think?

Well... At least mere put them in the spoiler. We just can skip the whole thing unseen by not clicking it. But it's unexpected, i know.

They ALWAYS drops their weapons, but only sometimes... I mean: they don't drop Nebelwerfers if they hold a Luger ;)

It's hard to judge, we have similar specs (beside 4core, I have 2core), and I can run C2 with 30fps in quite all situations (despise the C2 intro).
I suggest to remove gzdoom.ini as I told you before, and then lower distance for models to 2048, plus remove smoke effects and stardust.

You could open Doom Builder and make one yourself as an add-on...

Heads up for Avast users - the latest database (170611-0, released 11/06/17) thinks the .exe is a threat and blocks/deletes it.

(only way I can get it to run is disable Avast for 10 mins and use Task Manager to stop the .exe after I've started the game)

I have no idea why Antivirus scanners do this, even MS Security Essentials thinks it's dangerious. It's just a exe'fied bat that launches gzdoom.exe -file boa_c2.pk3 ...

That's exactly why. Bat2Exe programs are used by malware authors quite extensively, which is why anti-virus scanners simply red-flag anything that comes from them.

It's like swatting a fly with a cannon, but they seem to think this is the best way to handle that. It's not like it's really too extensive of an effort to do the same things with a C++ program. In fact, it's actually pretty easy to convert simple (no control/logic) batch files into a C++ program just using a stream of system() calls inside a main{} function and simply compile that.

If that's really all your batch file does, I'll make a program, myself, for you guys.

Sorry if this has already been asked, but I couldn't find it in a search. I played Ch 1 and Ch 2 in beta form a couple of months ago, but now I've downloaded the first two completed chapters in their final form. I've seen lots of posts that say there have been many changes made to Ch 2. So I definitely plan on replaying that chapter. But are there extensive mapping changes to Ch 1 that warrant a replay? I finished the Ch 1 beta probably around January. Thanks!

Finally picked this up after eschewing it for a while because I'm not a Wolfenstein fan.

HOLY. SHIT.

This is amazing. Absolutely gorgeous, plays like a dream, the weapons feel great, levels are intuitive but not too simple, enemies are dangerous and interesting, sound is spot-on... It's a masterpiece! I haven't been this impressed for a long time, nor have I played any one mod like this for so many hours in one sitting. Bravo, team! Bravo!

Yes. I can personally tell you that there were major optimizations and improvements made to those because I was one of the people testing for those changes and additions. Chapter 2 has seen an even greater overhaul, as in the last month alone it saw significant alterations. There are even maps in both chapters where the actual flow of the gameplay has been changed on a fundamental level: at least one map in chapter 1 had major parts of it's layout rearranged. On top of that, all the graphics have seen noticable improvement in he past 6 months, including HD sprites for enemies and pickups, more models, and additional map details.

The Chapter 1 release that's in this is like an HD Director's Cut of the original release. It's the same thing, conceptually, but with far more work put into it.

If you feel like the game was worth replaying as it was, you will definitely want to play it again.
