Edit blood colors in Gzdoom?

Postby aSeriesOfNumbers » Mon Feb 18, 2019 1:11 am

Is there any possible way to edit the blood colors of certain enemies in Gzdoom? I've heard of DECORATE, but I'm not too familiar with it.

For example:

Code: Select allExpand view
actor BoH : BaronOfHell 15000
{
  bloodcolor "77 00 77" // purple

or

Code: Select allExpand view
ACTOR SBlack : Spectre 15001
{ 
   BloodColor 
"black"  // black

Yea I'm having no luck with it. Could you give me a guide on how to change the blood colors? I've read the guide on Zdoom.Wiki, but I'm still having a tough time understanding. I'm not at all familiar with editing certain aspects of Doom with these Editors.

Did you read 'Improving original monsters with DECORATE'?
Or any of the DECORATE articles?
Or did you check out some PWADs made by others?

I can see how it can be a daunting task for a newbie, so I give you a bit of a hint:

DECORATE is a text lump. Simply insert it into your PWAD. In the lump editor Slade3, make a new entry called DECORATE and give it the appropriate text, for example


the DoomED number (here 15000) is important but use a number which is not yet in use.

then insert the NewBaron in a map editor, which can handle the Doom in Hexen format or UDMF, for example with GZDB or GZDBBF:


in User Defined.

Hey Kappes, what does the '15000' after the BoH inheritance do, exactly? I have a 5 year old blood color mod I made, and it doesn't have these numbers. Is it a certain actor address that's required for up date GZ?

Editor numbers, if you want to place it in a map.
