Looks neat!

Question or two, though.
In my opinion, Bulletstorm guns in AEoD goes near to monster genocide (If you used them correctly, of course.)
Are enemies tougher in this?

And I saw the fabled Leash in use...
Is it going to be ported by 1:1, so players can make Homie Missiles, and other cool stuff? :P

Hmm, What struck me as very interesting was very good looking additive muzzleflashes. I've tried to do them before but my tries have ended up in failiure.
This looks pretty good btw, Don't know how well it will work with the generic doom gameplay. But with custom maps and adapted monsters this could be really cool.

No skillshots. That'd be going over the point of losing our minds. Sorry. :P

How were the additive muzzle flashes done?

Code: Select allExpand view
#define MS_IN_AIR (int)
#define MS_STUNNED (int)
#define MAXSKILLSHOTS (int)

str BSScoreTable[MAXSKILLSHOTS]={...};

// ... monster calls a script when killed ...

switch(monster_state_reported)
{
  ...
  case (MS_IN_AIR && MS_STUNNED):
    BulletStormMessage(s:"Skillshot #598324384!");
    BulletStormAddScore(BSScoreTable[MS_IN_AIR] + BSScoreTable[MS_STUNNED]);
    Break;
  ...
}


Doesn't look like it'd be too hard to me. A little extra manual wrangling with DECORATE and you're good to go essentially

And you of course know how I feel about these weapon rip mods already

I meant "additive muzzle flashes" as in, the render style...

Also, music. \m/ :rock: :rock: :rock:

I was referring to the implementation of skillshots, the additive flashes are probably sprites that are stored as APNGs

I've watched a few gameplays of Bulletstorm, and it looks marvelous. And I always liked the "feeling" of using the ported weapons on AEoD. Definitely looking forward the release of this one.

Monsters are mostly the same (except for the zombies, as they carry their Bulletstorm weapons too). Instead of modifying the monsters, Im modifying the weapon balance. I can guarantee is not the same thing you saw in aeod. And there will be no skillshots, as Cooke mentioned. There's no leash in that video BTW, I was just kicking stuff.

It is just a weapon mod rather than a "total gameplay mod". There are a few new mechanics (not so new and not so interesting), but I can say I've been having a lot of fun testing it. Like most of the gameplay mods, is all about personal taste. Now, custom maps and all would be great, but since my mapping takes ages, and there's no free/willing mappers around this will have to stay purely as a gameplay mod only.

They are 32bits PNG taking advantage of the alpha channel. I dont know the technical temrs, as it is not my field.

That implementation is a certainly intriguing idea I never thought about, but that goes beyond the purpose of the mod. However, if this thing would ever see the light as a full mod rather than a gameplay mod, I'd definitely use this. Thanks for the suggesiton.

And while Im not totally aware, I guess I'd be right to assume you basically hate the looks of the weapons. That's the closest I could make them to look doomy. And I gotta say, it was a nice exercise for me to start adding the doomguy hands to weapons.

I honestly LOVE Bulletstorm, and the weapons were great IMO. I just hate that it flopped.

I'm guessing they just abuse the alpha channel and is bright. But not actually additive(because that hasn't worked out for me)? It does almost look as if it was though :P

My immediate reaction to this thread:

Seriously, I loved Bulletstorm and I'm glad someone is making a mod like this.

Sadly, I don't have any money... >.<

If you aren't against it, after the mod is released I'll see about taking a peek at the weapon code and producing a "Skillshot tack-on mod" if I have time

And it's not that I don't appreciate the effort, but as far as the rips are concerned I generally hate model rips especially. Nothing personal

Now I just might happen to gain enough interested to join in on this little charades, but there may be a few issues we have to address first. I'll get to that later.

Understandable. Unfortunately, we're definitely not spriters. Even I would make models in 3DS Max and rip them perfectly once complete, just to save some time.

Is it just me, or did the shotgun replacement seem under-powered. It took 2 shots to off the imp at the exit.

Otherwise, quite entertaining!
