Looks promising, and never seen those sprites before in doom mods! Gotta try out and prepare my thoughts!

And just played for few minutes, very promising and is she has four arms? That's really hilarious and unique style this mod has! Nice work!
Spoiler: And here come dat gripes
So that's all about it. This is one funky space time fun wad i ever played! :D And gotta love the funkybot8000's groove-move, too!

Just imagine how much hand-eye coordination wielding two revolvers like that would take.

That still looks awesome for one frame. You should finish it when you get the chance.

I couldn't think of a good altfire for the camera, and I couldn't get the disco cannon's altfire to work properly. If I think of new ones I'll add them, but sadly at the moment they gotta do without. I also left the small explosion sprite for the shotgun missile 'cos the explosion itself doesn't do as much damage as a regular rocket...though I guess it could be a TAD bigger, in hindsight.

I found this wonderful only by watching it's gameplay. Gotta play now.

But, my only nitpick is using of quake 2 sounds. Other than that, seems awesome! As soon as i play it, i'll bring a better feedback :)

EDIT: Okay, i haven't opened the file on slade yet, but i've got some feedback and questions so far:

- What does Universal remote primary fire do?

- There's too much flickering on animations. I know it's too little time since it's up, i'm just noting that some animations blink on screen when they could use some offsets. Tron discs, both shotguns, peacemaker(s)...

- Punching has no sounds.

- Colt Peacemaker standard fire is kinda slow; Western altfire of course fires it faster. But that same secondary leaves revolver frames smoother than primary fire. So my suggestion (that would apply to the shotgun as well) is to speed up just a bit for the sake of smoothening and add some ticks before refire to leave it on the original.

That or even adding a +WEAPON.NOAUTOFIRE to leave the trigger on player's hands. Makes things more fast paced, in my opinion.

- Peacemaker(2) alternate fire flickers the hand(s) as well. Maybe a single sprite of a lowering hand would do it.

- Do you plan to add reloads?

- Do you plan to add custom ammo boxes?

That's all for now, i think. Can i work on a edited version and post it here, if possible? I'm really liking this game, it has a great potential. :)

P.S.: The baby milk sound is from a Super Nintendo game. I just can't remember which. Is it from some Donkey Kong game?

keep the great job!!! :)

UPDATE: Version 1.2 fixes a few things, such as enlarging the shotgun rocket blast sprite a bit, missing hud face frames, etc. Also added the Skulltag TimeSphere and an "secret" enemy that drops the extra revolver.

The manual explains. It activates shootable walls/switches.

Are you playing in GZdoom? If you use it in other source ports you're bound to have glitches, I think.

You mean on impact? They should make the standard impact sound.

Well, it's supposed to be slow since it's a single-fire revolver with a lot of accuracy and power. The slow fire rate is the tradeoff; likewise, the alt fire trades accuracy for speed.

Nah, I'm going old school with this one.

I'd prefer not, although at some point I might start a thread to make a community megawad to go along with it. If it proves popular enough, anyway.

It's one of several sound effects used in Three Stooges shorts when the Stooges drink from a bottle. I used a lot of Stooges sound clips in the mod. See also: the ghostly sounds of the Boogedyman, the annoying sounds of the Jersey Devils, and of course the Mosh Family's Curly noises.

EDITING AGIAN I'M SO DUMB: Yes, her 3rd person sprite has four arms. But not much accurate as title screen ones; she's not tanned nor looks like it.

No problems :D

I'm keeping an eye on this! But tell me, sorry if that's too dumb: Is it an original idea? Or these characters already exist? I mean, it's very creative. Hard to see original concepts middle of many mods.

The monsters, allies, and guns all come from one thing or another. I mention the sources on the credits page (the pdf credits tend to be more up-to-date).

EDIT2: Also, for a real interesting time, load up the 1 Monster wad and try it with Surreal Killer.

I just got the reason why she has four arms lol. I dig it! Are you going to add the ability to dual wield different weapons, such as a shotgun and a pistol at the same time, like it shows in the level completion screen?

Probably not. I don't think it'd really add much to the gameplay, and it'd be beyond my decorate abilities anyway.
