[WIP] Brutal Fantasy Doom (Pre-Alpha 0.5_2)

Postby Ghostrider231 » Sat Aug 16, 2014 12:54 am

Hello guys, i am new here. I have been planning on making a zdoom tc for quite a while. (probably like 2 years ago when i started making this.)

After five years of zdoom modding, this is the first project i made to get released so here it goes:

I know the title sounds rather silly, i originally called it, "Final Fantasy Doom Improved" which sounded even more silly.
i Don't have a really good title for this yet.

Welcome to Brutal Fantasy Doom, a zdoom mod by Ghostrider231(aka me)

Image

Version: Pre-Alpha 0.5_2


Warning: This mod is NOT Compatible with Zandronum.
It may not look like it now, but it will in the next version.

You will need Doom 1 to play this.

Story So far(Still WIP): Gestahl the Emperor begin to gain power through madness, cruelly, evilness, and corruption. He had built a kingdom of his own to rule the empire.
However, The Evil Gestahlian Empire will not go down easily, As the emperor had given orders to his armies and started taking over the empire and gaining
control and power by killing almost every civilians (or even take them as prisoners) and moogles in the empire. The only living Moogle known as, "Mog" knew horrible things about the empire and must save the empire from being taken controlled from Gestahl's Evil wraith. Gestahl doesn't just have normal armies, he also has other different armies for mog to go through and even more deadly foes for mog to face. Magitek was taken by Gestahl's control and made use of technology and magic and even both combined to become even more powerful to gain Total control of his empire. What will mog face from Gestahl's Wraith?

The gameplay kinda take the some of the elements from the original ffvi(iii) and sometimes ffiv(ii) from the snes.

What this focuses:

To make the gameplay itself feel more fast paced and more challenging. (to be honest, i found the original FFDOOM2.wad pretty freaking easy.)

more variety of enemies/monsters, weapons, items, etc. (Items are focused currently.)

(Open world levels! (focus currently.)

Explorable and Intractable environment! (focused currently with open levels.)

More and Better Spells! (planned.)

Rpg gameplay! (Stats, Quests, Levels, Merchants, and Traveling Merchants!)

Quests? (None really planned, i haven't really thought any yet.)

Not your typical classic style mod!

Why? because this is not your tyipcal one way through mod. (aka NON-linear mod)

Game Progression are through dialogue choices, puzzles, and etc.

Please note that none of levels were changed or replaced yet. It will be progressively happen overtime soon. (just be patient. =P)


| If you didn't look at the version, This is currently Pre-alpha Stage. |

Good Feedback/ideas/suggestions are welcome!

Please feel free to give me your thoughts about anything in the game.
Can also be bugs, ideas, or suggestions.

When i first stepped into making this mod, because i thought about making a sword weapon.
After i made a sword weapon out of decorate, i always thinked to improve the weapons too, and i did.
This so forth, gave this mod a name, "Final fantasy Doom Improved Weapons/Final Fantasy Doom Tc Improved".
After that, i ended up making more of the content better, by improving the monsters too.
Which so forth called it, "Final Fantasy Doom Improved".

After about like 5 prototype versions, this is where it is now, Pre-alpha.

Also please note that something big cannot be made within minutes!
(Please be Patient Okay? i'm trying as much as i can.)

Please know that, this is the pre-alpha stage, everything you suggested is NOT there yet.

Version stages:

Prototype - Done.

Pre-Alpha - On Currently.

Alpha - Not made to yet.

Pre-Beta - Not Made to yet.

Beta - Not Made to yet.

Pre-RC - Not Made to yet.

--------------------------------------

I hope you enjoy this mod as much as i made this.

Spoiler: Gameplay




Be Warned to know: This mod is in the pre-alpha stage, so be warned to know, there is a lot of unfinished content and bugs/glitches. The newer features will come in, just be patient. =P

Most of the old stuff from the linear(this used to be a Gameplay Changing ONLY Mod.) version of this mod will probably be Removed/Replaced or Revamped.

------ IMPORTANT, if you want to play this mod correctly, look at this. ----------
Wad loading(Be sure you load my mod after FFDOOM2.wad.):
your other mods <--- can go here as long it doesn't over write anything.
FFDOOM2.wad <--- original wad
My Brutal Fantasy Doom mod <----- here

Or you could use zdl(what i recommend), or load wads in order by using a bat.

For ZDL, check here: ZDL

For bat files, You will need to create a new txt file(call it whatever you want.)
Open your newly created txt file and put in:
"zdoom.exe -file FFDOOM2.wad -file Brutal_Fantasy_Doom_PreAlpha05_2_By_G231.pk7"
"exit"
you don't need to add the quotations.

After that, save it and rename .txt to .bat

launch it, than choose Doom.wad because this mod uses the ultimate doom.
after that, your good to go.

---- IMPORTANT Above this. ----

However, if you don't feel like making batch files, here is a link that i made recently ago, includes two batch files: Brutal Fantasy Doom Launcher

Why not use SCP format for songs taken from the SNES games instead of OGG? It'll save several megs of space. That's what I did when I made a music update pack for FFDoom2.
And these graphics for King Edgar's chainsaw use the sprites from Doom. But Edgar's saw has a circular blade. Wouldn't the graphics from Freedoom be a much better fit?
Also, how about updating this code? Setslot has been deprecated for five and a half years, and for good reason.

That being said, I have to say this is the first mod with "Brutal" in its title that I've ever been interested. I really liked Final Fantasy Doom, so I'm curious where this is headed.

I actually really love Terrorists(!), as evidenced by me releasing a bugfix version in its thread. I meant specifically the word "Brutal", and not "Brutality" (splitting hairs, I know), and also the fact that "Police Brutality" was an intentional joke title to reference the surge in popularity of "Brutal" mods at the time.

Thank you! I didn't knew much about spcs, so i gave it shot and it worked! (because i throught zandronum didn't had this support, but it did.) Those ogg files really had given me a problem because every time i try to play a sound file or import one. I ended up waiting for a few minutes or so because of an ogg file. Some of the oggs will be replaced with spc music formats. That saved me 10 mbs of space! big jump there! this will be present in the next version. :)

Beautiful. Also, my apologies about that typo. I keep getting SPC's and SCP mixed up anymore. :P

Sorry, can't help you there. When I made my music pack, I had to concede and just use MP3's (normally I go with OGG's, but I had them as MP3's and didn't feel like reconverting them). Normally, I'd suggest making a request to the folks behind Game_Music_Emu to add support, and then I'm sure the ZDoom dev's would be happy to update their version, but it's pretty clear that the GME folks don't listen to the suggestions/bugs that are posted there... I've been waiting more than a year for them to address one. :(

oh well, because i wanted to put the remaining music for this original music pack i'm gonna plan to release here.(as an addon.)
you know, the best way to not make a giant wad because all of the music is just full of mp3s or oggs.
(i mean who wants to download a 200 mb music wad that has the original music?)(that's what it was originally.)
whats done so far was, most of ffvi and ffiv music was already spc, and the ps1 soundtracks are mp3s.
file size? i think 20mbs something.

Yeah, their pretty busy doing something else i guess, because you know, the devs aren't always 24/7 you know.

I can't. Zandronum is so embarrassingly out-of-date on ZDoom features, pretty much none of the mods/projects I enjoy playing will work on it. Plus, because of issues with the broken message scaling and other things, I just can't get comfortable.
