Classic Arcade is a heavily work-in-progress project to create various ACS-based arcade machines in Doom.
It currently contains semi-complete versions of Wolfenstein 3D and Doom (insert inception joke here)

Spoiler: Videos

  • The random lookup table from his Wolf3D TC
  • The "A_Random" script from his Wolf3D TC

Notes:
  • This doesn't seem to work with pre-2.x versions of GZDoom, sorry guys
  • Wolf Arcade! only works properly when run in Doom 2 for now
  • Doom Arcade! only works properly when run in the original Doom for now

Man, not having the shotgun makes Doom absolutely awful.

It really does, I need to figure out how to make pickups work with the "fake player" so that I can add more weapons than just the pistol.

Using CustomInventory and ACS is the only way I can think of that will let you do that thing.

Although they mostly ignore the Wolfenstein arcade machine (some don't even mention it), where's the Wolfenstein love, guys? :(

i do love the wolfenstein 3d machine, and it even plays sounds correctly than the doom one. but it still needs some fix, though. such as;

Now we can add Doom to the list of "Does it run doom?"

I am loving the Gameception idea that was presented and i had a funny thought, What if this Excellent idea can be utilized to give the player items or unlock new areas :idea: .

(example - the player finds a locked door with no indication of switch or key to open the door, so the player goes searching for a terminal in a security room or a room similar to that, when the player activates the terminal *initiating the arcade game* and then he/she has to search for the switch that activates the locked door while not getting killed in the progress *dying in the arcade game will either make the player reset the terminal or kill the player*)

The idea can be a interesting asset for any major projects.

Here are some previews of what's to come

Yes, you are seeing multiplayer in one of those screenshots

I'm also happy to report that I've fixed the issue that prevented Classic Arcade from working in pre-2.x versions of GZDoom.

What about those older ACS demos such as Pong and Breakout in Doom? Anyone remember those?
