I think that can be done by screwing with the colormap lump. I'm not sure it works in GL mode though.

Edit: This is actually one of the oldest hacks around. Take a look at http://www.doomworld.com/idgames/index.php?id=321 for a hack from 94 that does exactly this. And it does seem to work in GL mode.

I've replaced roughly 217 textures for the custom texture pack, I'm still trying to make the standing frames for the ROD309, and I still need to record voice-over for the Beta 15 commercial. Hooray.

For the texture pack, I'll try to release a sample once I get around 250-300 textures done. As far as a new demo goes, I'll go release that once I finish the commercial. The next beta will not have the ROD309 in it.

Lizard Squad - Beta 1 release

Postby lizardcommando » Fri Apr 15, 2011 2:50 pm

Here's the last beta for now. Also, this mod's gone under an official name change. It's called Lizard Squad. Some additional tweaks have been made here and there, the fullscreen HUD has been slightly remodeled. Just read the textfiles for a complete list of changes.



Here's the link to the new beta.

By the way, the Fullscreen HUD has been slightly changed, it's just not reflected in this trailer.

I just wanna say, this mod is really good, and you should keep making it! :) My only complaint is that the bazooka guy's shots aren't that bazooka-like. I think what you should do is speed his projectile up, and add splash damage. Of course, not too much, to maintain balance, but as of right now, it really feels too much like it's just the imp.

The Lizard mod has just been going from strength to strength for years. I personally rate it almost alongside something like Chex - something quirky, enjoyable and very much of its own character. :thumb: :thumb:

I was trying to copy the bazooka shots from Metal Slug. I believe the speed is a little faster than the imp fireball. A long time ago, I actually tried to make it so that the bazooka shots flash different colors like in Metal Slug, but that made it look tacky and ugly.

Thanks for the compliments guys. Seeing these comments make me want to continue on with this project. :)

Oh, and something I wanted to mention, it would be kinda cool to have a custom intermission screen, showing the five classes. Kinda like ROTT, which is also badass. :)

And I'll get to work on the voice acting you wanted. :)

Custom intermission screen? I had no idea that was possible in Zdoom.

I think he means changing the INTERPIC to something that has the classes on it, kinda like TNT Evilution has the Doom player in a victory stance

Oh. Now that would be pretty neat to do. I don't really have any idea on how to approach this though. :/

Something like this:

Just like the titlescreen, except show them in a victory pose.

It might be an idea to reduce the size of the Cacodemon replacements a little. In "Tricks and Traps" they were all stuck in these little alcoves, unable to come out or attack:

Actually, I have an idea. Why don't you use the current title screen, and modify it to give them a more pleased look on their face, and then use the same drawing as the one at 0:51 in the video as a title screen instead?
