Fate: A Doom Total Conversion is based on the Fate demo of 1996 by DogBone Software.

New update with original demo levels (changelog at bottom of post)

This TC is based on the unreleased Build Engine game Fate. I took many liberties with the source material, however there are some similar game mechanics like breakable barrels, escaping from a cell and collecting weapon pieces.
Watch out for secrets, you might find a secret level gem. All the graphics, sounds and music are changed.

7 weapons with secondary fire modes
10 enemies

First chapter: 9 levels
Second chapter: 1 level preview
Demo chapter: 4 levels

How to play
-- How to play --
Add Fatedoom.ipk3 in GZDoom folder
Start gzdoom and select Fate
Jumping, crouching & mouse look required

This definitely has a lot going for it. Interesting that you went with Fate and took your own take on it asa result. Definitely getting some Strife vibes aswell.

I really like the weapons HUD in this one. Is this something that could also be used as a generic weapons HUD for other mods or is it, as of now, specifically crafted for this TC?

Because that HUD looks really interesting for RPG styled mods.

Cool, thanks! I made a custom HUD for this TC, because the original HUD sucked, and I like it when a mod feels like a different game. I guess it should not be too much hassle to use it in another mod. Although I should not have used the deprecated SBARINFO lump for this.

Wow, this looks amazing! I have always thought that a remake/reinterpretation/continuation of Fate would be amazing to see, can't to see the day has finally arrived where it's now a reality! Looking forward to play this in the upcoming days :D

For the credits btw, you should also credit Yagotzirck as he took care of most of the ripping.

Nice. Why didn't you keep the sprites original palette though?

I was wondering that too. The conversion is nice and it finally lets me get an idea of what Fate was meant to be like (never able to play even the demo) but the graphics (sprites and textures) have really suffered from being forced into the Doom palette.

Well I ripped most of the sprites myself years ago and converted them to the doom palette. I do definately regret that. Actually have some sprites in a different folder that are not doom converted for that reason. But then I'll need to change all the textures and sprites. :(

If you have the time and the motivation to do it, replacing the Doomified graphics with their original palette versions would be worthwhile IMO. However, I understand that it would be a lot of work.

I can potentially help you with that if you send me the folder in question.

Well, you are right. I just converted all the graphics back to the Fate palette and it even now (by converting them back) it looks better. It will look so much better with unhampered files.

Thanks, the folder is already inside the pk3, so those sprites look nice with the fate palette now. I mostly need the textures and soldier and troll sprites in clean format. If you could provide a link to Yagotzirck rips it would be really helpful. It takes a lot of time to extract them from the source. I'll be sure to credit him.

Yagotzirck's rip for what exactly? Cybermage and Disruptor?

This looks freaking interesting! In case you need them, I have ripped and packed Fate stuff here, which contains almost all graphics from Build engine related games.

Never mind, I just now released I should credit him for those resources. I thought you meant he ripped fate resources. I was kind of hoping for that lol.
