We can't win, this is the ZDoom enhancement that brings the most joy.

(Granted, it lacks header files, but they fit with compression... though not so precisely.)

Awesome reading comprehension:
"Your submission must be able to run on its own".

It doesn't matter if it can't compile within 64kb if the final project is under 64kb. That's like saying you have to fit your OS in under 64kb. That's obviously retarded and not the intent of the rules.

I'd participate. Sounds like a fun challenge, and a as I might take a little break from my current project when school starts to get stressy again, I might have time for something smaller, like this.

It seems to me that it would be within the rules of the competition to have a ZIP containing an executable file that would procedurally generate all the resources needed for your map/mod and save them to a WAD file. The rules do say the mod must be able to run on its own, and having such a thing still won't require anything else to make it work. And since procedural generation is a form of compression...

(Exploit all the technicalities!)

Yesssss, you're getting it!
Per RaveYard's question I'm in favour of explicitly allowing resources and source code to be made available and not to count as part of the actual submission.

This brings to mind that Terry WAD that, when decompressed, went from a few Megabytes, to a Gigabyte. I swear, someone'll probably end up pulling that, thus rendering your competition limits null and void.

Of course... that won't do for my standards. I'll come up with another entry, eventually.

So, i'm working on something that you can't see everyday:

Image

A strife level, oh boy!!! And it's for zdoom! :D

Also, i have a question: how i can put things in my map? The things are there, and they works fine when i put them on vanilla strife, but not in zdoom (strife in hexen mode)?
I'm using Doombuilder 2 for editing...

It first I was thinking it was going to be hard to make a wad file with less then 65KB.
Now I it's even harder to make a map that uses 64K D: (I'm still with 10KB left and idk what should I put into it D: )

Ladies and Gentlemen, here today ibm will presente you the GLITCH LAND, powered by cyriak engine.
The mod isn't 64KB, BUT, it's 55KB (I found some usage for the extra 5KB) :D
BE ready to fight against the map glitches, and also having fun with some puzzles (and also having your mouth opened by effects that almost no one ever used in a doom mod)
The was planned in mind to use this music https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-0Xa4bHcJu8 but since it's not enough space, I found something "more similar" that could fit that small size :S
Thanks nash for the 7zip tip, I had it here but I never used it, now my wad file come from 507KB to 79KB and now 55KB :D


DOWNLOAD HERE (Works under gzdoom, didnt test it under zdoom but it may be too glitchy, zandronum failed to open the map, maybe due it being a pk7 file)

PROTIP: The map isn't easy, but can be beaten, just remember to use the save button

EDIT: Since this is a linked post, I'll Always update the download link here

Cool! Consider adding a ledge mantiling script from one of the mods the uses them so the player has to jump and climb to get over 24 map unit floor height differences.

Cutting it really close here

Here is my entry for now: Dropbox, Mediafire
It is just the latest (unreleased) version of JPHUD, altered slightly to reduce the file size.
I will probably put a different entry in at a later time. Working 13 hour shifts doesn't leave much time to do anything unfortunately :(
