So people from the community are not supposed to play BOA? You should have said so earlier! :P

No one said that. Its that the general populous outside the Doom community play these mods as well.
We always seem to think of the Doom community the majority audience.

Yes, yes. We get the point. Torm just want this mod to be easily playable for everyone, including community people and the others who don't know much about doom mods without autoloading and such uncomfortable things.

I'm in a bad condition, so excuse me if i'm getting serious here, which is actually not!

I have no idea how these shadows will affect performance, but please note that this mod as it was two weeks ago (last version I tested) does NOT run well on entry level systems! Extrapolating from my own crusty Geforce 550Ti it is clear that something needs to be done about performance, rather than adding more and more eye candy. If people experience the glory of < 20 fps choppiness all those features will become meaningless, your mod will get lambasted for just not working right!

Suggestion: Can the nazi scientists have their +FRIGHTENED flag set? It seems weird to me that they'd charge the player like soldiers even if they're armed. Just a nice little tweak to make things more believable.

Related, have some scientists be completely unarmed, maybe even some wandering randomly. It would make the levels feel more alive and less like a shooting gallery.

Actually the performance with the new system is better as with the old (subtractive dynlight shadows) so I guess this improvement was a good one :) By the way I just took care of a lot of issues you mentioned for C2M0_B - it should run smoother now.

Hello Guys,
i
n the GIT Version there's a Bug that bothers me.
In Level C1M2, where you have to dive to get the green Key and then get attacked by the two Subs.
It is not possible to dive down anymore, and so you can't finish the Level without cheating.
I've tested with gzdoom and qzdoom stable and latest Git builds.
can you please fix it!

sorry for my english, and keep up your great work

that fixed it for me

Really impressive, and nice article.

And finally they wrote GZDoom and not "a doom mod" like BoA could be done in Vanilla Doom + DeHacked (as happened in an italian website, like Tom's Hardware, for another mod which I can't remember)

Lol happens frequently with Doom related mods, but in Italy these things happens everywhere...

@ Ozymandias81 : are you helping in this project, too?

Spoiler:


EDIT: Just tried the astrostein secret levels: I had from 40 to 60 fps for the whole time and I was playing with 1440x900 screen resolution.

My configuration is: 3.4 GHz i7, 32 GB RAM and a GT950 with 2 GB RAM on-board
