Spoiler: Chapter 2: Death Juice


There we are. Hopefully by the time I get to chapter 6's part, I'll have finished it...

Just as a note, the logfiles are sort of describing the chapters, but not revealing too much. The chapters are quite short, the longest of which only has about 67 monsters in it, and the shortest having 27 or so (so far). Each chapter is part of one large level, you see.

Phobus are you planning to put that text ingame anywhere? From just a glance I can say i'm probably gonna be one to not bother reading it if I see it in game ;)

I wanted to something similar with my portal wad but I thought it would put the gameplay to a halt all the time so I decided to keep it simple.

I'd have to agree with Cutman there. My weakling mind looks at it and thinks "oh crap paragraphs, solution=skip".

No, the actual wad itself is just a simple case of playing doom with some ZDoom features used. Just a load of stuff on here to add to it a bit :P

Though not tonight, because i've left it too late. I'll sort it out tomorrow, and try mapping some as well.

Double Post... because I can:

In a bit I'll devote a couple of hours to getting chapter 6 done, or as near done as possible in the time... assuming I don't get bored or just failto get going for whatever reason (It's happened once or twice before :( )

Now:

Spoiler: Chapter 4: Sadist


I do appreciate that the stuff in the spoilers is all a bit long and superfluous, but I like creative writing, so I might as well do it for all the difference it makes :P

And a triple:

Despite distractions being many, I still find a little time to work on this, and consequently, I'm nearly done with Chapter 6. So here's a block of text (and a screenshot) about chapter 5 ;)

Spoiler: Chapter 5: Dante's Pit

Hmm... quadruple. Guess nobodies all that interested. Still, I'll keep updating anyway... not that much more to do, and I might motivate to work on it faster at some point.

Anyway:

Spoiler: Chapter 6: Ascendancy


Chapter 6 is a very short chapter, but oh well. Some maps are tiny, others are huge.

Hmm... never heard that before :)

I'm going to try and really kick it into gear now and finish it, as I've still got Virus to do as well, and as I'm applying to do a computer games course at university, a recent release would be helpful for my interview at Dundee (I think).

Ok, I've had enough of writing story sections for each chapter - I'll leave you to play it when it's done and decide how it goes.

I'm currently on chapter 8, which is a prison style area, and will be a little bigger than some of the other chapters.

Trying to get this done as soon as I can so that I can work some more on Virus... however, things like real life, Guitar Hero 3 and Dues Vult 2 are slowing me down a fair bit. The good news for me is that I'm back into mapping an artificial area, rather than natural-looking-attempt areas, which is considerably more intersting, if nothing else.

For a minute there, I thought Doomguy was upside down. :P
